8 week Healthy Weight Loss Challenge version 10.0 (enrolling through July 24, starts July 22,... - Page 10

167.  Just in time to be too late!  What is going on with me, I wonder. 

post #182 of 201

140.5 Down another pound!!!

post #183 of 201

152.55 lb

pleased with my progress for once !

post #184 of 201

169.1 down .4 lol. Was down to 168 this week but I guess last night's snacking erased it all (or hopefully it's just the sodium and tomorrow I'll be back down there?) Anyway no big deal! It has been a f*cked up month of August, still not completely back to normal, so I take what I can.

 

Lost 6.6 lbs this challenge for a total of 23 lbs since April! Yay! At the end of the next challenge I'd like to be able to say that I lost 30 lbs. But that's another story :Sheepish

post #185 of 201

No change from last week, 156.6lbs.

 

Need to really think about whether I'm going to participate in the next challenge.  My 7mo is teething and her naps are all over the place leaving me with rough sleep at night and inconsistent workouts.

 

I do have a 10 day beach vacation in 5 weeks and I'd really like to be at my goal by then (another 6.5-11.5lbs to go depending on how I'm feeling).

207. Yay!
post #187 of 201

205.

 

I have mixed feelings about how I did in this challenge.  On the one hand, I'm glad that I'm exercising again.  I was very faithful to fitting in my four workouts, even though this is the worst time of year for me (teacher).  And, I did lose 4 pounds.  On the other hand, I feel like I worked harder than 4 pounds.  I'll have to start taking a closer look at my diet, now that I know I can fit the exercise in.

 

I'm back for the next round.  When do we start?

Is there another challenge lined up? I didn't see anything.
post #191 of 201

Usually she starts a new thread a  few days after the end of the finished challenge and people have a week or so to "register", so we kind of have a week off haha. But of course you can keep going to lose more weight.

post #192 of 201

Ok thanks Jaxy!  I'll keep my eye out for the new thread!

Yes, exactly.  Thank you very much.

Agreed, thank you for organizing this lilacvioletiris!!!!

137.8, for a total of 9 lbs lost, yay! My goal was 7 pounds, so I am super happy.

What is a healthy weight range for a breastfeeding, small framed, 5'4" mama? I'm feeling good about where I am now, but I really want to get down into the 120s and fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans (that fit a year ago).

135.8

Here is the link for the new challenge http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1389767/8-week-healthy-weight-loss-challenge-version-11-enrolling-through-sept-18-starts-sept-16-ends-nov-4

 

TwilightJoy, check out this BMI calculator at http://www.webmd.com/diet/calc-bmi-plus to get an idea of a healthy range. It looks like from 108 pounds to 145 pounds would be a healthy range for you so somewhere in the 120s as a goal weight sounds like a good place to be, but this calculator looks at a few other factors too.

Congrats Twilightjoy!  Do you mind sharing the secret to your success?
