8 Week Healthy Weight Loss Challenge 5.0 (enrolling thru 10/10, starts 10/8) - Page 12

post #221 of 337

Weight: 219.6. Yes, again. When is this scale gonna budge? Still on track mostly food wise but know I will be a cheater on Halloween! ;)

post #222 of 337

151 -- sorry I'm late -- storm knocked out our power for a bit :)

post #223 of 337
154.4 sorry guys. I'm stuck here in the Northeast without heat and with limited power. Boy is it a challenge trying to wrangle a toddler and a teen in this situation.
post #224 of 337

am going to see a doctor in 20 days' time

and for the follow up of  my treatment, it would be best if i could be at least 20 lb lighter ....

i know i cannot loose that amount of weight in that little time span

.... but i feel more motivated now in a way .... with the date written on my calendar

SO today is the day when i start the "no sugar whatsoever" phase of my eating plan .....

(am trying to be reasonnable with carbs too  - wish me luck !!!)

post #225 of 337

So I did cardio x on Monday, U-Jam fitness class last night, and just finished turbofire. thumbsup.gif
 

post #226 of 337

Did the Pace express workout yesterday afternoon.  joy.gif

 

My BIGGEST problem is with sweets.  I think if I could wean myself off of those, I would probably lose some weight, but my will-power is nil.  (just finished eating a fun-size 3 musketeers bar  angry.gif

 

I've got to get a grip on this.  I'm tired of weighing what I weigh and looking like I look.  It's unacceptable.

 

Okay...November is a new month...

Oh, I know! All that candy DS collected and the leftovers for passing out... they were staring me down. I didn't give into those. *phew* BUT the brainy skull cupcakes I made.... it was delicious but I told myself "ONLY 1!" My sunbutter cups were disgusting so I only had one of those. I have a very big sweet tooth and was able to wean down to about 2 tablespoons of sugar a day (mostly for my daily cup of green tea) but it was a VERY slow process to get there.

post #228 of 337

so far, so good

we had our delayed halloween celebration (due to 3 days of continuous rain ....) and i managed NOT to eat any sugar

(just a few sips of fizzy drink, to try what DD2 had in a cafe)

today's work out was ... cleaning and moping floors this morning & walking twice 20 minutes at high speed this afternoon

post #229 of 337

Just came back from zumba. Woot!
 

post #230 of 337

My kids have allergies so they trade in their candy for toys. Now I have a their candy and a couple of bags of candy that was supposed to be given out. We only had 4 trick or treaters this year. I'm resisting it so far, but need my dh to take all the candy to work. 

 

I managed to get some skate time on Halloween. Only a 45 minutes because my back is hurting. League hockey game tonight. Taking extra Advil so I can play without pain.

Yet another crazy week. Did my team triathlon even last Sundry - it was fun, but I hurt my knee which has severely limited my activity this week (trying to give it a rest so I can do my 5k today).

I'm starting a new business venture and still teaching my full course load. Dh is not being as helpful as I would like, but I do appreciate what he is able to do.

post #233 of 337

I would have been 245.8 on the 22nd, not 145.8 (I wish!). That was probably my typo, though, not yours. I have to make the hundreds correction almost every time I type my weight. My brain just can't accept that digit.

post #234 of 337

managed a swim and a walk today

success with the 5K for a new PR. back to my normal workout schedule tomorrow. expecting a gain this week as I've been pilfering the children's candy stashes.
 

post #236 of 337

Went to bootie blast class today. bellyhair.gifI expect a gain also as DBF bought me a candy bar for Halloween (hershey's cookies n cream. yyuuumm) I felt obligated to eat it so I did eat it a little at a time. But I saw my red velvet cupcakes in the fridge that were a couple days old and I was like "aaaaaggghh... it's going to waste!!!" so I ate the 3 that was left....in one sitting. disappointed.gif Yeaahh... no more sweet temptations until Christmas.

Seems like we are all struggling with the weight this time around more than previously...

 

Anybody up for a week long challenge???  I challenge everyone, for the week of 11/5 - 11/ 12 to drink at least 64 oz of WATER. Every day.  Lets make those scales move in the right direction!

I just wish the holidays weren't always revolved around sweets. Bleh...

but I love a challenge... Challenge ACCEPTED! mischievous.gif Uhm, do ice cubes count?

post #239 of 337
Ice cubes become water so I would think those would be part of it . Challenge accepted. 246.6 pounds today.
post #240 of 337

I have been craving water lately so I will join the water challenge.  Scale is saying 151 this morning!  I might still make my end of the year weight goal after all.  Ladies you are so

 

helpful with keeping me focused and on track. You are all greatly appreciated.
