I'm down another pound this week.  219.

 

This challenge has coincided with the implementation of a fairly tight family budget, so curtailing the 'quick stop for a snack or Dr Pepper' events have dropped to nil.  I think that is helping my weight loss :)

187 - STUCK!

 

The truth is, even though I'm moving a lot, I'm not getting in what I consider to be 4 30-min. WORKOUTS.  It's just been really hard to fit that in on weekdays when my 9mo really wants me when I get home from work.  My husband and I are going to plan a way for me to get one official workout weekday.  I've been trying to make sure that I do the evening dog walk most days, and I do the 1.5 mile walk as opposed to the 1 mile walk as often as time allows (three kids to get ready for bed...)  Dog walking, however, is maintenance exercise for my body.  I'm a good walker, and despite being overweight, I've never been completely sedentary.  I swim on Saturday mornings, and can find some time to do something on Sunday, but the weekdays haven't been working out.  I think I'll pick a weekday evening and try to fit another swim in.  I'd start jogging perhaps, but my dogs are too old to jog anymore.  That would mean that I'd have to go for a jog, and then come back and take the dogs out.  It's a possibility, I guess.

150- while I am happy to see this, I have been sick this week and didn't work out Wed-today.... don't know if I can do anytihg today either.  Had the flu and couldn't move for 2 days.  I will see how it looks next week.  Hopefully I can keep the loss and start exercising again soon.

63kg (138.9lb)

A milestone for me. This was my pre-pregnancy weight for both girls.
Another 8kg before it reach my ultimate goal of 55kg, which was my long-term adult weight before I lost a lot due to sickness and then gained due to rebound and also being in a happy relationship where we both enjoy cooking and eating :-) We're both losing that weight now and feeling very good about it.

IsaFrench, getting your rings out is a very cool reward. I would be excited about that :-)

Unfortunately, I'm don't think I'll be able to weigh in this week. We've had a very frantic, stressful week with our 6 month son becoming very ill and then being admitted to the hospital for a rare case of infant botulism. I am spending most of my time at the hospital and pumping breastmilk for his feeding tube at this time, and I do not have access to a scale to weigh myself. (I also *might* be eating a lot of snacks that friends and family have brought for me!) Anyway, I will not be weighing in tomorrow morning, but I might next week if DS is home from the hospital then. orngbiggrin.gif

236.1 today.  I started "The New Rules of Lifting for Women" and eating more protein-focused so I would imagine that's what's keeping the weight on this week.  Also started Armour thyroid last week so I'm hoping for more movement next weekend.

Coffeebean- oh no. I am so sorry for you and your ds. Hoping for a quick recovery.

Me: 149.5- I have been really sick with no appetite for 10 days, so I am not sure what will weigh in at next week. I have not worked out in those 10 days either. I am going to try to start again today (very easy today)

@coffeebean how scary! I will keep you in my thoughts. Can anyone bring you food? Lots of good starches and protein while you are pumping.

katelove, exciting to reach a milestone like that!

 

thecoffeebean, infant botulism? yikes, I hope your baby gets better. I will just copy over this weeks weight for you as a reminder that you checked in, even though a scale was unavailable. Hope he heals quickly

 

anne, even though it is the same, at least you haven't lost your progress.  Keep doing what you are doing and the weight will come off eventually.

 

AFM, the nurse practioner gave me the okay for "normal activities" again and I want to start swimming again now that the boys are older. Have to figure out how I feel about the "onsite day care" for the babies or whether I need to hire a babysitter to watch the boys at home for an hour a couple days a week to get my exercise again. I will be joining back up in particitpating in the challenges with the next challenge.

 

Here is week 6's stats.

237.1 as of yesterday :(  I ran 7+ miles last week and weight lifted twice.  I hope it's just water weight.  It pissed me off so bad yesterday that I went down to the treadmill and ran the equivalent of a 5K >:(

148.5!!!!!

I have been so sick with the flu for over 2 weeks and am just feeling well enough to start slowly walking or something.  We celebrated DS's first birthday last week and I can't believe I have basically weighed the same as I do now for almost a year.  I lost all my pregnancy weight within a week or 2 and then was at a stand still and then went up about 3-5 lbs, which is where I was at the beginning of this challenge.  I am now lower than my PP weight!  My ultimate goal is 8.5 lbs away, feeling so much closer!  Hoping I dont gain all the weight back now that I can taste and smell again.

186 today.  Stalled.

 

I tried to fit an extra swim in on Thursday, but forgot to check the pool schedule before I went.  I showed up just after 4pm on my way home from work, only to find that there's no lap swim between 4 and 6.  Sigh.  I'll make it Monday or Friday then.
