I did not do well last month at all.
I would like to lose at least 3lbs this month.
I need to weigh myself in the morning to know my start weight.

Anyone else want to join me?

I'm still in/back. Have lost 1-2 lbs in December but need to lose more. All the holiday eating has been brutal! Am trying to exercise 3-4 days a week. Would like to lose another 3-4....

I'm in. I got a Wii Fit for Christmas so I'm eager to put it to use. Also I ate a lot of junk over the holidays and am really ready for eating better (and for my pants to be less tight!)

Oh good, I was hoping this thread was still around. Hi, doriansmummy! We've been here before! I gained 5 lbs during the holidays. I think I have dropped a little in the last week but haven't checked since coming home from holiday. I'll look tomorrow. It was 5 lbs to go though when I came home. I don't feel up to the counting points thing (I lost my weight with ww) so I'm just being careful, exercising, and tracking with sparkpeople.com at the end of the day (I've got a good memory for what I've eaten so it's better for me to do it at the end of the day instead of obsessing all day and entering each thing as it goes down.)

I weighed in and am down 2+ since Saturday. I'm glad. I *figured* that once I got home and returned to my normal habits the weight would come off again. Must keep it up for the other 3 lbs.

Alright... I am back in. I gained about 5 lbs. I ate too much over x-mas and can't run outside because I fall on my butt every time. I hate winter running.

The Y is having a deal now with a reduced joiners fee, so I am going to sign the family up tomorrow. Hopefully, dh will join me!

Good luck to us all. I hate being right back here.

I'm in. I'm 2 weeks postpartum, and have lost 30 lbs since giving birth . . . problem is, I gained 70 lbs this pregnancy. I'm getting a Wii Fit in a few weeks, but it's still too early for me to do much exercise.

Subbing and aiming for 5 lbs this month. Starting weight is . . . uuughhh... 190.5 lbs.

In the past pregnancy, how long did it take you? What was your gain? Do you know about babyfit.com? Think of it this way. Those 70 lbs are no longer 70lbs. Their 40 lbs--5 more than the "recommended" 35. You'll probably continue to lose a bit rapidly for the first while just naturally if you are careful. What I did at first was to determine my pre-pregnancy weight OR my goal weight and find a calorie recommendation for maintaining THAT weight (thedailyplate.com can do it for you). Say it was 2000 calories (I'm just being arbitrary.) Then ADD 500 to that for breastfeeding, to take it to 2500. Any exercise you do (say you burn 100 calories in a day of exercise) gets ADDED on to that for a total of 2600. With exercise you must be very careful, because we often overestimate how much we are burning. I went ahead and got a heartrate monitor so that I could be accurate. Anyway, using an accurate count like this will help you to get back to your pre-pregnancy weight or your goal weight. Correct me if there is a problem with this, mamas, it's early!

I gained 60 lbs with my 2nd pregnancy, and I think it took me about ten months to lose it all (I was admittedly lazy about it, though - could've done it much faster). My goal weight is 135. Thedailyplate gave me 2087 cal/day to maintain that weight (5'8", lightly active), and while nursing I tend to average about 2200, so losing the weight shouldn't be too much of a problem. I just need accountability so I stay away from the junk food DH tends to bring into the house!

I weighed in at 187 today, down 3.5 lbs.

Checking in...I'm down 1/2 a pound. (Hey, I'll take what I can get!)

I added in two yoga classes during the week, so I'm at the gym almost every day. I've also done a lot more conscious portion control the past few days.

I hit the gym today
Did some lifting and abs. Also forced an hour of running on the treadmill, 7 miles. Weighed in after and it looks like I've lost a pound this week Of course I'll weigh in again tomorrow in case the scale was lying and my stomach was empty or something!

May hit the gym today but will tomorrow for sure, and hope to run outside at least once this weekend. AF came so I have had a few sweets
I thought I was down a pound and a half or so, then weighed in again the next day or so and the same scale put me at even a heavier weight!! Who knows, maybe some AF bloating? What gives, work out, cut back a bit with food, and nothing!!! Guess it's all the muscle I'm building lol, now that I'm lifting weights more frequently again.

I've only lost an additional 1/2 pound (although, one day this week, I weighed in at a 3 pound loss, but I must have been dehydrated or something), but I've definitely gained more muscle this month, and my stomach has lost at least an inch, so I'm okay with the pound loss being lower than my goal.

We're completely snowed in (our city is not used to getting snow, so when it DOES fall, once or twice a year, the entire city has to shut down), so I won't get to the gym today, and most likely won't get there tomorrow either.
