Same old number here again.  Who knows what's up.

Gonna try and shake things up a bit this week, and we shall see if it works!  (Not that it will make any difference to the challenge)

 

Hope to hear some awesome weigh ins and looking forward to seeing our winner!

 

Thanks DM and BFM for taking over the new thread - if you need anything from me, just let me know!  It might be worthwhile to link to the new thread from here :)

I am at 180.6# this morning.

 

This has been a crazy week.  Last week I went from 175 to 182, and I was not thrilled but it was such an extreme change I figured it was water weight or something.  I has been feeling not myself and very bloated and such all week in addition to having an allergic reaction.  So I decided to weigh in tuesday, expecting the number to be a little down at least and maybe feel better about the whole thing seeing as my eating and exercise had not warrented a 7 pound gain.  But on tuesday my weight was up to 187.6, making me up about 12.5 pounds in about 1 week.  I talked to my husband and he suggested I call the doctor because he had noticed my energy level was downand the bloating was obvious to him before he left.  He also reminded me that I had mentioned my milk production was decreased about the same time as everything else started.  I called the doctor and went in, expecting them to think I was blowing things out of proportion but the doctor seemed pretty conserned.  They drew blood and I am waiting on the results and they ordered an ultrasound which was scheduled for this week.  I am somewhat concerned and I have WAY to much time to dwell on it and think about it with my husband out of town.  So I am pretty happy to see my weight down a little this morning, but I still don't feel like myself and I am super frustrated that all of my hard work during this challenge is gone . . .

 

Back with the chart later!

BFM, I'm sorry you're dealing with this! Keep us posted...

No change for me this morning. Had a very celebration-heavy weekend, so I suppose my scale is feeling the effects. I'm looking forward to the next challenge, though!

Four pounds down from last week, my largest weekly loss ever.

 

BFM I hope you are okay.

204.   I think I will sit the next session out.  

 

I am moving again and that is keeping me busy.  I think I need to spend some time doing some inner reflection as to why I am not succeeding at losing weight.

 

BFM, that is a very strange weight gain.  I hope all goes well.

 

Best wishes to everyone.

I sure was happy when I stepped on the scales today and saw 177.8!  I was expecting to have gained weight over the past three weeks with my daughter's wedding activities and not going to the gym.  See you @ version 4.0!

post #374 of 396

211   Same as last week. :(

post #375 of 396

Happy to report that I'm back down to 188lbs! I think it's more stress than healthy eating though. I threw my back out again on Friday so I'm not sure if I will be able to keep up my water work out class I've joined. I'll see how I feel on wednesday morning. I'm looking forward to taking a break from worrying about my weight. I'm going to focus on my family and getting strength in my core to help my back. I really appreciate the 25 pound loss I attribute to the accountabiltiy on this and the first two threads. I may join again in ten weeks, we shall see!!!!????!!!!!!!

post #376 of 396

Yeah 239 pounds!  I haven't been below 240 in several weeks.  Yeah!  Exercise, exercise, exercise!

post #378 of 396

129 lbs for last week, and still 129 for this week too! I think I've been stuck at 129 for 3 weeks now....so discouraging!

post #379 of 396

Ok Ladies, here are the numbers as we stand thus far.  First off, con grats to buzzer beater and vermont girl who are our individual leaders at the moment, and to Dantesmama and Dimitrizmom who are nipping at their heels!

 

I do not have team standings because we are missing 2 weights and we need Milk to make the call on BridesMother, who skipped 2 wiegh ins and then showed back up - normally missing 2 weighins means you are out - So when Milk makes ar call on this I will update the chart appropriately.  Right now the teams are standing pretty close, so as soon as we get the rest of the info, we will figure out who won!

BB - great effort

 

BFM - I hope you can let us know the results of your tests soon.  I'll be thinking of you.  You did quite well, regardless.  

 

Re: Bridesmother, I'm inclined to stick with past rules, and say that we will have to disregard her loss - sorry Mama!  If anyone disagrees, please speak up, but I think the two week rule is quite fair.  

 

Well done to everyone else - you are an inspiring bunch, to be sure!  Looking forward to the final results!
