I want to see 165!!!!!!

I've started the 30 day shred again and after only 2 days I feel already fitter! And I am starting the Harcombe diet which seems to be a good one for me :) We'll see!

I'm not giving up, but I'm not expecting much out of this challenge.  I am having so much trouble fitting in challenging workouts.  Our lives are a bit chaotic right now, and it's not helping my weight loss.

Same weight for me. I will add that I've been working out, lifting weights hard, but not decreasing calories. My clothes are a little roomier, though. :-)

A small loss but more than I deserve since my favourite chocolate was half price when I did the grocery shopping last week bag.gif

Week 6 has come, tomorrow is week 7 weigh in.  How are you ladies doing?  My boys were dedicated at church yesterday and I had friends and family here on Friday and Saturday.  Hope the loss I had so far this week sticks for tomorrow.

I'm doing okay, I believe I'm losing more than the scale is showing, which is a good thing, although sometimes frustrating on Mondays lol... I knew April would be a stressful month with my parents coming for 5 days for Easter, was supposed to start babysitting a couple of babies (but i fell through), the start of festival season, bike got stolen, new noisy neighbors upstairs, and we have had a couple of shootings here in the neighborhood... But I feel good and manage to exercise everyday! The eating part is a daily battle (loll), it's something that I will struggle with my whole life and I know it. Most days are good but I feel like the nighttime snacking erases all my hard work...

I am down to 219.8 today.  Yeah!  With my babies, I seem to be going to sleep earlier and not tempted to eat a bunch at night after supper.

Same this week for me. I am determined to accomplish something this week. Even if it is just 2 pounds!

I am choosing to eat healthy already today.

129.19 lb

that is 58.6 kg

(or 9st3 lb in the UK)

 

not bad .... but i think i only lost 1.5 kg for the whole challenge & my next appointment is on the 5th in exactly two weeks time and i'd like to be just below 57 kg then ... so am trying to up my numbers of semi fasting days (doing a modified 5:2 diet, more like a 4:3 diet ...., each semi fast day seems to help me loose 300 g, so it would be "just" a matter of fitting 5 of those days in the next two weeks, without overdoing it compensating with food on the other days ....)

Now, with family drama upsetting me lately, am not sure i won't be having difficulties getting to sleep at night ...; this is when i stumble with my eating plan ..... day time i can manage, but night time can get out of control ...

It's been too crazy at our house, and it's starting to really wear me down.  Here's hoping that I can get organized enough to start exercising again for the next challenge.
