My weight for this week is 164. Last week I did weigh myself although I didn't report in because I was back to 166 which is what I weighed when we started. I was too bummed to even type the number.

 

I didn't get in any formal exercise last week. My mom came to visit, doctors' appointments, younger one sleeping really lousy, etc. But my weight went down because I tend to eat less when someone is hanging out with me all day long. I assume some of my eating is emotional: boredom and frustration. This morning I got myself and the kids to the gym. My older guy didn't want me to leave him in the kids' room but I managed to peel myself away and do w3d1 of c25k.

I hit 196 today on the scale and I am really proud of myself. That is 50 pounds since October 1st. 50 pounds. That is what my son weighs! Can't imagine how happy my body must be to not have him on my back 24/7!

147.5  I guess even as much as I am walking its not helping much. Going to try and get in some more formal exercise this week.

no loss, but no real gain either. despite eating a large quantity of cake at my daughter's birthday party. and eating freely that day as well. 

 

WTH? but, i'll take it.

139...does not seem to want to budge, but I have not really been able to get to the gym as much the last few weeks. I would like to get down to 133-135.

Go blue team!

207 (down one pound).  My blister has healed and I feel good about getting my runs in again.  I feel so good afterwards.

Sorry to post so late --

 

I'm horrified: 157


and so bummed. And confused. I've been eating so well, avoiding so many temptations, and exercising MORE vigorously, and more often. WTH? Period is over, pms is over, and the only goodness here is that the better diet and better exercise is balancing my mood somewhat. 

 

The thing is, til this bump up in weight, I've been going between 154 - 150 for about a year. So confused and disappointed. Sorry too, blues!

 

Have any of you experienced something like this, a significant weight gain when you START exercising and eating better? (for what it's worth, at 44 I really do know what eating better looks like for my body, and I really am doing it - low carbs, avoiding refined foods, lots of vegetables, simple proteins. it's always worked for me before...)

150 I'm not impressed but I am weighing in at night which is about a pound higher than my lowest weight of the day which is at 11-12 before lunch. Now I'm working 8-4 so I can't weigh at that time. I have to shift my whole schedule: exercise, eating, weighing. So I guess I need to find the norm for this time of the day to track the weight loss. I have instituted no eating after dinner and I'm starting week 4 of c25K which is a significantly higher calorie burn so I hope that's reflected in next weeks weigh in.

I'm doing a very low calorie diet today, and no exercise. Orange juice and V8 so far.

 

PSA: Spicy V8 is not spicy AT ALL.

Sorry. I have trouble with this site on my ipod and getting to a computer is challenging. I do remember to weigh in.

Sorry to be so late. I am .5 pound up for the blues this week. DD turned 5 and the cake is good....puts me at 208.3. My foot is throbbing, so I can barely walk which is not good for movement. I ordered tea tree oil to see if that will help and if not, then castor oil will have a chance. I really don't want surgery, but I can't go on much longer with this wart pain.

My weight loss seems to have slowed right down again, but this time around I did take measurements.  As of last week, I have lost 10cm off my waist smile.gif and 6cm off my boobs greensad.gif since the beginning of the challenge.  Pretty fricken' awesome.  I am just a teeny bit away from fitting back into my "skinny" jeans.

Oh thank heavens! I know I'm weird, but it helps to know that I'm not alone in it.  joy.gif

 

Congrats on the cm lost!  (and hope the rest of the boobage stays put!)  Skinny jeans sound awesome.

 

I'm aiming for breaking out of the 190s this week... I believe I currently weigh less than my dh has ever seen me at (and we've been together for 15 years!).  I should go shopping at the local donation center for smaller pants - either that or get suspenders.  lol.gif

It is kind of funny how weight distribution gets lost.  I sure wish it would stay on the boobs, but leave on the waist and butt first.  No such luck for me.  I keep track of measurements like bust, waist, hips, etc but I don't photograph my scale.  I have a calendar in my bathroom to write my weight on each day to see how I am keeping up.

after losing 43 pounds by stopping eating at or before 5 pm, i hit a stall and didn't lose anything for about 4 weeks. now i decided to shake it up a bit and have resumed eating lightly a bit later in the day. today i had a bowl of fresh fruit, watermelon, strawberries, red grapes. 

 

i know i'm losing because my my stomach is growling again. it had stopped growling in the evenings around the time that my weight loss stalled.

I hurt my neck Thursday morning. I couldn't move it at all that first day, but I'm slowly gaining mobility now. I haven't been able to exercise and my weight has stalled at 2 lbs over my goal weight - so frustrating! Especially since I'm so so close to hitting the 50 lb mark. I'm going to try doing a gentle workout today, maybe on the stationary bike, after I take a painkiller.
And a plea to the universe: nothing else, ok?? I had the flu, tonsillitis, and a neck injury in a single week.
