Wow...the halfway mark already?
Congratulations, Milk! It sure does feel great when those clothes start getting too big, doesn't it?
BB, I second all the advice here. It really seems like too few calories for your activity level. I know it feels odd to eat more to lose weight, but it works! I hope you tried lots of wonderful stuff at the food bazaar!
Sorry AF showed up, Trekkingirl. The first PPAF always feels like a holiday has come to an end.
Rae, I've also been doing the 30 Day Shred, but I only do it every other day. It was NOT a pretty sight the first time I did it! It gets much easier very fast, so that after 7 workouts, I can easily keep up with Level 1. But I'm terrified to go to Level 2!
AFM, I weighed in this morning at 129.6!! The first time I've been in the 120's (just barely) in years! Something seemed to click this week with the weight loss...I just wish I knew what it was!
Go Red Team!!!
I had a bad stretch during the week (V-Day involved 3 days of sugary things and poor food choices). But, it sort of felt like I needed a break from being so hard core and then I made up for it with some intense workouts and it still worked out to another 2 pound loss for the week. Thrilled with that.
January 2011: 256
(tried half heartedly to drop some weight and did but not a lot)
October 2011: 246
Started a committed effort to drop some weight
November 2011: 236
December 2011: 229
January 2012: 225
(began this challenge at a time when I had 2-3 weeks of not dropping any weight and was frustrated)
Week One: 217!
Week Two: 215
Week Three: 213
Week Four: 211
Total lost during challenge: 14 pounds!
First goal: 206 by March 1st
Second Goal: stay under 200 for 2 weeks (my dh and I made a plan for me to go clothing shopping when this happens!)
Third Goal: 185 by Mid-May
My goal for 206 by March 1st might be tough since that is 5 pounds in the next 9 days and I have been doing more like 2 pounds in 7 days. We will see. Feeling really good overall.
Buzzer, I hope your surgery goes well.
Trekkingirl - the first PPAF is always a huge bummer!
Lovetolaugh, congrats on reaching the 120s! That's awesome!
Pacificbliss - a loss is still a loss! Good luck traveling.
Wow, are we really halfway in already? We should all be really proud of ourselves for sticking with it!
I weighed in at 170.6 this morning, down 3 lbs. 6.6 more lbs and my BMI will officially be out of the overweight range, although I will still have way more fat than is healthy. I am doing the Slim in 6 program from Beachbody and I took my "before" pics and measurements when I started a few days ago. It was not pretty!

117.2 this morning so only .2 loss. I started spotting this morning so maybe it's hormones this time. It hasn't been that long since my last AF, but I've been working on night weaning my ds, so maybe it's resetting my cycle. My rings are tight too so probably retaining water also. I'll just step up on drinking water this week and hope I see a bigger drop next week.
In the beginning of the week I had lost another 4lbs and was down to 192.5! But then AF hit and sadly I gained it all back. This morning the scale read 196.7lbs. I'm pretty sure that's what I weighed last week. Hoping for better results next week.

I measured my hips and waist a couple of weeks ago and just measured them again today. I lost 1 1/2 inches off my hips and 2 1/2 inches off my waist.
Thanks! It was encouraging for me to see, since I'm losing weight so slowly, and this morning only saw a .2 loss.
That's great Amandamarie. I was just thinking this morning about people who take photos to measure their weight loss too. I kinda wish I had have done that.
Sorry for the late post ladies. I am at 199.4 as of yesterday - a slight change from last week, but I will take any change at this point. Here is to hoping this is the start of moving forward! So tired of the scale not moving!!!!!
Go Blue team!
Married to the love of my life (career navy), and Mama to 2 amazing little ladies - K~ (03/2009) and M~ (01/2011) always to wish I had gotten to know our little ones lost Reconfiguring my career track and working hard to keep my sanity through it all . . .
My formal exercise for this week: an hour long Yoga class on Monday (really enjoyed), 45 minutes of cardio on Tuesday, (rest on Wednesday) and 20 minutes cardio and 20 minutes of strength training today. I'm debating about whether to take tomorrow off from the gym. My 13 month old has been doing pretty good but he was a bit sniffy when I picked him up. One of the workers just loves him and said he was playing then when he saw her he started towards her and was crying a bit. I'm thinking if I encourage an early morning nap then maybe gym time could be between naps....
Hahahha!! I would like to see the pie chart like that.
Speaking of which, I am late with the pie once again. I shall be back :)
Had a slightly crazy work week, very little sleep, and then got my period today. Scale shows about a 1-2lbs loss so far for this week, which is amazing. I have been able to get some great work outs in but things have felt hectic. Hoping my period does not throw me off too much. Skipped having serious cravings (which was nice since I went crazy last week).
181.3 today!! 2.7 pounds down. Not bad considering I was at a music festival ALL DAY Saturday, and the meal options weren't super healthy.
Okay, now for the walk of shame... No pie last week! I'm bad, I know, I'm sorry. I will do it tonight without fail, I promise
Looking forward to some more weigh ins from you all!
Last week, in order of biggest to smallest losses
Overall weight loss from biggest to smallest:
Neck and neck between Clay Bear and Dantes Mama... with Trekking Girl not far behind!!
Oh, but it's different when we look at percentages, which is what is going to win the challenge, after all!!
All of a sudden, Lovetolaugh is a real threat....
And here's the pie chart I owe you
Thanks for the pie, Milk! Gotta love those percentages!!
I weighed in at 128.0 today, so I think that's only down 1.8. Better than nothing.....
Off to exercise now...looking for a bigger loss this week!
GO RED TEAM!!!
156. And I have some other stuff going on that points to pcos... :( (I'm sorry to be dragging you down, Red Team!)
