Challenge 6 has come to an end!  We all are less of the people than we were at the beginning.  Our winning team is the orange team with 12.66% lost!

 

Our biggest loser was C is for Cookie with a loss of 5.36 %

 

 

I know many of you have signed on for Challenge 7, but if you haven't already tomorrow is the initial weigh in and I will sort people out into teams once I have everyone's initial weigh ins. Hope to see you join us as we move toward skinner clothes in the new year.

144. Happy to not be gaining but frustrated as to why I'm not losing. GAH!

Aaand back up to 146. I'm so discouraged. I wasn't going to join the next challenge, but I'm going to switch some things up and see if it makes a difference. Maybe I've just been doing the same thing for too long??

Anyway, thank you all for the encouraging words. I may try again in the near future. Best wishes on your weight loss.

 

So, alas, I bear ye all farewell.blowkiss.gif

 

Nobodymove, I still want to encourage you to try one more round of the weight loss challenge with us. Each little bit of loss helps. There is safety in groups. Contribute what loss you can and be encouraged to keep on losing!

174, still.  I'm going to use the excuse that we had family staying at our house over the weekend and they brought all kinds of junk food with them.  I couldn't be rude and turn it down :)  Back to healthy eating today though.

Wow! I am somewhat shocked on my weigh-in today. A good shock...lol. I have been eating healthy and exercising as I should though...

 

I am 137.6. biggrinbounce.gif

 

*does a victory dance on getting to the 130s* Now, I got about 15 pounds to go. I will be on the next challenge.

Well ladies this is our last weigh in with this challenge!  Can you believe 8 weeks have gone by?

 

My ending weight is 247.4 pounds.  Been sick all weekend and sleeping a lot.

 

Want to sign up for round 7.0 of the weight loss challenge?  Check out this link to sign up. It starts next Monday, Feb. 4 to keep us from losing ground on the weight we have lost.

Sorry for the delay! Both kids have been battling a stomach virus so life was consumed by laundry.  I'm still at 144. Good job to all the ladies who lost!!

Here is our week 7 weight loss results!

dantesmama Sorry I'm a day late... 145. Better than a gain... Thinking I've got some weird hormonal stuff going on.

FINALLY got all of viruses off our computer and can post again!  139 this am.  (yay!)  Slacked over the weekend but back to kicking my butt this am :) 

 

Trying to eat much cleaner (no more Lean Cuisines and the like for lunch) and cook at home more.   Weight training hard

So if you want to participate in the healthy weight loss challenge round 7.0 go to http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1372806/8-week-healthy-weight-loss-challenge-7-0-enrolling-through-feb-6-starts-feb-4

 

We will finish out this round, hopefully add some new faces to our challenge over the next 2 weeks and get started again the day after the Super Bowl here in the U.S.

248.4 this time around - spent a weekend with teenagers and my eating was a little heavy on salt so I think that messed with my weighin.

 

I think I am going to set up the next challenge for people to sign up to.  I am thinking of not having a week off in between. I always seem to mess up if I don't have that constant reminder to keep myself in check.  I will be back for the link for people to sign up to.  Challenge 7.0 here we come!

Arg...So close to the 130's... lol.

Weigh in today...132.2! Got me a new  glass water bottle on the way; hoping I will be motivated to drink more water. And my husband just bought himself a pair of walking shoes so I'll be tagging along with him too. Maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to drop down into the 120's before this challenge is over.~Only one more weigh in after this one.winky.gif

Had a great weekend with a retreat for my high school students.  It was a blast!  Played "broom ball" last night.  My legs hurt.  Hopefully my weighin tomorrow is okay, eating was a bit crazy with some awesome cooks.

15.3 miles run/walked this week so far.  Boot camp for 3 hours.  joy.gif

 

How's everyone doing?

How is the exercise going this week?  I had a hysterosonogram on Tuesday and to say the least walking has even been uncomfortable. Yesterday I didn't quite meet my goal of 30 minutes but I am hoping today will be better for walking.

Dantesmama, keep up the work, eventually the scale will meet up with your efforts.

I've been on the road a lot recently and unfortunately it shows that I had to eat out a lot.  January 7- 172  and today 175.  I just need to get back into good habits and not let this stop me!
