8 Week Healthy Weight Loss Challenge 7.0 (enrolling through Feb. 6, starts Feb. 4) - Page 11

post #201 of 226

thanks for the encouragement !

i did better on Sunday food wise + was un expectedly offered a ride to the swimming pool so had a good work out in the afternoon


today i'm back to where i was 2 weeks ago, 100 grams less even when calculating in kg, so am rather pleased

(except that i doubt i'll loose 1.2 kg in 3 and a half days .... my appointment is on Thursday)


at least i'm more in touch with how i feel when i eat this or that

and i can see now that over the weeks, i HAVE lost weight so it's encouraging


156.9 lb

(71.2 kg or 11 stones 2 .... i need to revise maths when i count weight the english way LOL, it's 20 per cent of 14 pounds, not 2 pounds or 2 ounces or whatever .... am glad i can find answers to my questions so easily with the internet ...)

As expected, I have maintained 216 this week.  I'd love to get over this on/off cycle, but it seems it is what my body want.


Nice work, IsaFrench and Lilacvioletiris!

It's so hard to stick to this diet! It's hard to remember to eat at the right times and then to STOP eating! Also, making a lot of different veggies, soups and dairy-free smoothies is taking a lot of time. *sigh* Must push onward!

170.6! With some effort I hope to post in the 160's next week. There is a lot of good progress being made here! I'm definitely more motivated because of the accountability. This week I'm going to transition my de-stressing beverage from wine to herbal tea. When I have a really hard shift I really want alcohol but I know that is not a healthy outlet for stress.

I will take that one pound lost. Woot. lol. smile.gif


So, I set my alarm to go off at 6:00 but instead it went off at 7:30 this morning. banghead.gif

It's the only time I can exercise before I go off to school so I guess I have another day off from exercising. Until tomorrow! lol. I made sure to fix my alarm this time.

Well here is how this weeks challenge has shaped up.


post #213 of 226

thanks for updating the table .... does this challenge indeed finish this coming Monday ?

i didn't make it (my loss goal) at my medical appointment yesterday & now have another 5 weeks to work on a 6 to 7 pounds loss ...  my next appointment with that doctor is on the last Monday of April.

I have a swimming costume and two bras that i'll be able to wear as soon as i shed a few more pounds ... hoping NOT to lapse in between challenges !!!!!!

Yep, this challenge ends today and I will create the 8th challenge as soon as I post my weight.


My abdomen feels really full of ovary and follicles. I will have my egg retrieval this week either Wednesday or Thursday. My weight is 250 pounds.

I'm down another 2 this week, 214.


Thank you so much for organizing this.  Even though I don't post a ton, it has been encouraging to have the accountability!  I'll be joining 8.0!
