My weight is 162.4, so a 1.4lb weight loss. Thats good - I suppose. I mean I know its good, and I know its the start of something - its just so frustrating. I used to be at my goal weight (after excerising and food changes) and then with all the meds I just ballooned, it feels sucky to have to work so hard for something I already achieved and could maintain before.

Thanks so much! It's been a very stressful few weeks and I know I've not been eating as well as I need to. Still exercising though.

Hi fellow mamas! Sorry for the late check-in...so last week there was no loss, but no gain either thumb.gif I stayed the same at 133 lbs. I had a few indulgences eat.gifsince we celebrated Mother's day and our 2 year anniversary stillheart.gif . This week however, I lost 1 lb, so I'm down to 132. *sigh* It's gonna be a busy week at work, so I have no idea how I'm going to make some time to work out.

Have an awesome week everyone, YOU CAN DO IT!!!!thumbsup.gif

poiyt- I understand your frustration. Many years ago I lost 20 lbs, but it was no easy task at all. It took a lot of effort and a few tears. After I had lost the lbs, it was so easy to maintain my ideal weight. But now, it's been over year since I gave birth and it's been so hard to feel truly motivated to lose weight again. The first year of dd's life wasn't easy for me. I had pp depression and had to go back to work when she was 4 months. This time around, will cost me twice as much effort as the 1st time.

My point is, don't feel discouraged. That's why all of us are here, losing weight together and rooting for each other. Like teresa said, any loss is still a loss!!! you'll get there, just be patient. hugs to you mama!

Ladies: my intentions were pure, but I'm going to have to pack it in. I'm juggling too many things right now and managing the forum is not something I can keep up with. I'm so sorry. I'm happy to still weigh in though I don't expect to see much weight loss for me, so I don't want to bring down the team. Perhaps, a reorganization of the teams? Both me and rcr are now off purple. Good luck to the rest of you! You're doing great!!!

Ladies, I noticed your predicament and I just wanted to throw out there that we started another challenge as of monday the 21st (yesterday).  Since you all weighed in yesterday anyways, if you wanted to merge on over with us we would love to have you.  If you want to join us, come on over and post your weight and such sooner rather than later so Milk8shake can assign you to a team!


Married to the love of my life partners.gif (career navy), and Mama to 2 amazing little ladies - K~ (03/2009)blahblah.gif and M~ (01/2011)biggrinbounce.gif always to wish I had gotten to know our little ones lost angel1.gif angel1.gif angel1.gif   Reconfiguring my career track and working hard to keep my sanity through it all . . .
