67.9kg (149.7lb) :-(

Very disappointing!

I would like to echo the PPs and say thank you very much Lilacvioletiris for all your encouragement and for your administration work. It is greatly appreciated.

I am also keen to start a new challenge ASAP. I came nowhere near meeting my goal but I did lose weight overall. So, with lots more to lose, I am eager to go again.

Or something like that.... I really should do something.  I am busy 24/7 with the girls, and if given a choice of a 10 minute run and Sitting On My Ass, I tend to do the latter.  orngtongue.gif  But that's a thought.  I think dd1 might even be up to join me.


Give me a few minutes while I caffeinate.

SweetSilver I'm sure it's not easy with a few children. I am lucky to have my stay-at-home dh, although yesterday I started jogging with ds and the jogger stroller on the running track near my house and it was really nice! Otherwise I go while he naps and dh is home.

 

micae_mae ohhh I'm so sorry to read that! Don't beat yourself up, it must be stressful indeed!

isaFrench, so you are saying that you are ready for another challenge to start once this one ends?  You have been going down a little at a time.

woodchick, I guess I have always seen myself as an encourager.  I know these challenges helped me when I wasn't pregnant to keep faithful to exercise even when I didn't lose. I totally spaced on the chart last week. But hopefully with summer here that will get better.

Jaxy, here is to another great week for you. Hopefully you will break into your goal weight range for this challenge.

C is for Cookie, congrats on the excellent 5K.  Glad that  some purging will be happening at  the house you are living in to make it more comfortable.  Goodluck with throwing things out.

SweetSilver, could you put more oomph into your chores to give you extra activity?  Maybe  dancing around as you sweep or vacuum. Walking in place while washing dishes.  The more movement the better.  Keep up the good work and definitely get your kids involved.

FillingMyQuiver, you can totally make it!  Just a little at a time and before you know it you will be in the 160's.

Katc8910, looks  like your good habits finally paid off.     Your weight has finally caught up with the good things you have been doing.

katelove,  we will start the next challenge asap.  I think it has helped not to have lag time between challenges that way our good habits stay strong.

micahh_mae, I am sorry to hear about your marriage challenges.  I pray that you will come to the best decision for you and your family.

AFM, I can't believe I will be 10 weeks pregnant tomorrow.  Crazy.  I have still been exercising so my first trimester weight gain has only been a couple pounds although I have been reading that with twins I should actually gain more first trimester. I am eating all the time and can't fathom eating more than I am. It is already about every 2 hours all waking hours.  Totally insane. But I want my babies to grow strong so I exercise (there is a prenatal swim class at the YMCA) and eat well.

Whoa, it is week 8 already.  I thought it was week 7.  Oops.  So here are the team totals for this challenge. By far, the purple team pulled away with several people losing 5% or more of their body weight in 8 weeks.  That is excellent.  I know that losses like that have significant health benefits and even little losses help a lot.

 

So here are the charts.

 

 

 

Who is ready for version 9 of the weight loss challenge?  I will post up a link here in a minute for the new one starting next Monday.

I lost 5.5 lbs instead of 8, but 5.5 is 5.5.  Pretty good.  Yes, I'll be there.

Congrats Jaxy and SweetSilver! smile.gif

Congrats Lilacvioletiris on 10 weeks. smile.gif

I ended up the same, but lost inches in my hips. Very frustrating. Ready for next challenge. I get to walk every day, this time. smile.gif

Amandamarie losing inches on the hips is always good!! You look like a gal who likes to move, it must be frustrating to be restrained, but the day will come when you'll be able to :) Good luck!
