No Fooling! 8 week Healthy Weight Loss Challenge version 8.0 (enrolling through April 3, starts... - Page 16

Yes SweetSilver, I know it's hard but eventually you won't crave those bad foods as much, I promise! I found that allowing myself some sweets (or whatever I crave) makes me eat without guilt (nobody wants that) and satisfy me without over indulging. You can do it!

Wondering the same thing. This week I'm shooting for achievable goals. Nothing (for me) ruins my diet more than feeling like I'm failing st my diet.

169, but I have PMS and a lot of water retention. The water weight should be gone in a cople of days.

No change here this week.  172.6lbs

post #305 of 346

So yesterday I was so glad to be where I was that I thought I could take a break from my diet. Wrong. Is it possible to gain 2.5lbs overnight? Also I finally have my periods, please tell me it has something to do with that! Need to get back on track on start planning meals again. RIGHT NOW! (starting by putting some quinoa on the stove, completely spaced out to soak the chickpeas last night).

We moved house this week and I'm glad to say that I'm down another pound to 211!  Slow and steady...

205. Back where I started. greensad.gif Caught a cold and not doing the little exercise I can do. Working on not limping so much and strengthening the ankle. Doctor's appt on Monday. I'm hoping he'll clear me to skate. Still no hockey til July, but skating would be a start.

I gain about 5 lbs right before and during my period. Once it's over, my weight drops.

Well that's good to hear! I'll have to wait til tomorrow to see if it's back to normal, but I measured my waist and lost 1 and a half inch since last week! So hey, that's that that's good. hehe

 

Amandamarie you seem to be going thru a difficult time right now... I'm sending you some positive energy, wish you to get well and fast! I don't know in what shape your ankles are but it must be certainly rough on them to skate...

post #313 of 346

Is the scale lying?  I tried 3 times and weighed an easy 151.  I can hardly wait until Monday to see if it sticks.  That would be good for morale!

So sorry I'm late. 142lbs

newmamalizzy, don't give up. what can you try this week to help get you below your starting weight?

C is for Cookie, wow that would be a tough situation. My grandpa is a hoarder and after my grandma died in 1999 his house has filled so much that he barely has room to sleep on his king size bed and sit in a chair next to the table to eat.  I hope you can get your degree done as fast as possible and get yourself moved to a different area.

Sweetsilver, yep, rebook and try again another day.  You can do it!

Jaxy, I have gained 2.5 pounds overnight from having too much salt in the food I eat. Usually I get to a more normal salt consumption level, and everything evens out again.

Woodchick, glad you are all moved in. Yep slow and steady wins at the weight loss game and usually keeps it off better.

Amandamarie, I hope your doctor appointment goes well.
 

AFM, I have all the weights submitted so far.  I just need to finish calculating the overall losses.  Will post the chart after awhile.  Hope today was a good day for everyone.

post #316 of 346

my last weigh in is 69kg exactly, so 152.1 lb

considering i consumed a certain amount of not so nutritionally sound food during the night (to aleviate some stress) am not so un-happy with my end results

 

and i should hoepfully get the chance to have someone watch over my little one in the paddling pool in the afternoon so that i can go and swim one km in the deep pool .... & probably going to do some more walking during the day ... when does the next challenge start ????? i still have at least 10 kg - 20 lb to shed !!!!!

SO many thanks Lilacvioletiris for keeping us motivated with your comments and tab checking .....

post #317 of 346

I'm here, checking in at 211.

 

Considering the stress of the past weeks: funerals, wakes, selling a house, moving everything into storage, finding temporary housing, moving in, homeschooling, life living, etc... I'm not too disappointed.  Things are doing in the down direction, albeit slowly!

 

I echo IsaFrench!  Thank you, lilacvioletiris, for your dedication, even as your life changes!  I have found being a part of these challenges to be very helpful, as simple as they are!

post #318 of 346

I agree woodchick! Thanks lilac!!

 

181.9 for me! And I'm very surprised since I had gained a pound the whole week and was expecting a gain, not a loss! But yesterday was good, and lots of walking! Will I be able to see 180 ish by the end of this challenge?

post #319 of 346

Sad to say I'm at 136. Guess we all know what time of the month it is for me! Yay!
