I actually had another tiny bit lost and totally forgot to post!  I took my mom to Austin for her birthday this past weekend and just was so focused on getting for that last week. 


Oh well, It will be a good start for next time and my team still won. neener neener.

Yeah for green team !!!!!

03-30-2013 03:40 AM

I had forgotten to post the results of Weight loss challenge number 7.0.  Here are the final results for those that have checked in their weights.


The green team won with 20.29% of their weight gone.


Our biggest loser was mzemily with 8.11% of her weight gone! Way to go Emily!


I know many of you have headed on over to challenge number 8.0.  It starts on Monday, April 1 and that is no joke!

170 This morning.... Weight loss challenge 7.0 was absolutely a great way to stay on track... Thanks for the encouragement when I was on the verge of giving up... Looking forward to version 8.0 of the weight loss challenge...

newmamalizzy 149.4 today! Proud of myself, and excited for the next challenge. Thank you for the time and energy you put into this, Lilacvioletiris!

I'm down another 2 this week, 214.


Thank you so much for organizing this.  Even though I don't post a ton, it has been encouraging to have the accountability!  I'll be joining 8.0!

03-25-2013 03:12 AM
hedgehogs4 170.4 this morning. Great luck with your egg retrieval Lilacvioletiris!! Thanks for your efforts on the thread as well.

Here is version 8.0 of the weight loss challenge if anyone would like to continue on with their weight loss journey.

03-25-2013 02:45 AM

Yep, this challenge ends today and I will create the 8th challenge as soon as I post my weight.


My abdomen feels really full of ovary and follicles. I will have my egg retrieval this week either Wednesday or Thursday. My weight is 250 pounds.

03-22-2013 07:26 AM

thanks for updating the table .... does this challenge indeed finish this coming Monday ?

i didn't make it (my loss goal) at my medical appointment yesterday & now have another 5 weeks to work on a 6 to 7 pounds loss ...  my next appointment with that doctor is on the last Monday of April.

I have a swimming costume and two bras that i'll be able to wear as soon as i shed a few more pounds ... hoping NOT to lapse in between challenges !!!!!!

03-21-2013 03:47 PM

Well here is how this weeks challenge has shaped up.

I missed monday again!  my low tech days off the computer really doesn't help me stick to posting...

166.6 this week.

03-18-2013 05:13 PM

141.6 this morning finally headed in the right direction.

03-18-2013 10:28 AM

My weigh in for today is 175..... Went  jogging on Saturday. Challenging myself to go jogging during  this week..... smile.gif

03-18-2013 09:43 AM
newmamalizzy 151.4. I'm pleased, but surprised. I've been sticking like glue to the Whole30, but I still don't quite feel like I deserve it, kwim?

It looks very motivating, can't wait to do it in April! I'm gonna have to get a scale though :P

I will take that one pound lost. Woot. lol. smile.gif


So, I set my alarm to go off at 6:00 but instead it went off at 7:30 this morning. banghead.gif

It's the only time I can exercise before I go off to school so I guess I have another day off from exercising. Until tomorrow! lol. I made sure to fix my alarm this time.

hedgehogs4 170.6! With some effort I hope to post in the 160's next week. There is a lot of good progress being made here! I'm definitely more motivated because of the accountability. This week I'm going to transition my de-stressing beverage from wine to herbal tea. When I have a really hard shift I really want alcohol but I know that is not a healthy outlet for stress.
03-18-2013 06:41 AM



It's so hard to stick to this diet! It's hard to remember to eat at the right times and then to STOP eating! Also, making a lot of different veggies, soups and dairy-free smoothies is taking a lot of time. *sigh* Must push onward!

03-18-2013 05:00 AM

As expected, I have maintained 216 this week.  I'd love to get over this on/off cycle, but it seems it is what my body want.


Nice work, IsaFrench and Lilacvioletiris!

03-18-2013 04:21 AM

thanks for the encouragement !

i did better on Sunday food wise + was un expectedly offered a ride to the swimming pool so had a good work out in the afternoon


today i'm back to where i was 2 weeks ago, 100 grams less even when calculating in kg, so am rather pleased

(except that i doubt i'll loose 1.2 kg in 3 and a half days .... my appointment is on Thursday)


at least i'm more in touch with how i feel when i eat this or that

and i can see now that over the weeks, i HAVE lost weight so it's encouraging


156.9 lb

(71.2 kg or 11 stones 2 .... i need to revise maths when i count weight the english way LOL, it's 20 per cent of 14 pounds, not 2 pounds or 2 ounces or whatever .... am glad i can find answers to my questions so easily with the internet ...)

03-18-2013 03:53 AM

Weeks 7 weight in!


249.8 pounds. Down from last week. I will be better for next weighin.

03-16-2013 10:04 AM

IsaFrench, onto better eating today! 


Last night I just had the hankering for milk - drank 3 glasses.  It was crazy. Making better choices today.

So, a couple things have seemed to started up my loss finally.  I got back off grains (90+% for 3 weeks now), dairy (as a trial but I'm going to stay off 90% as well.  I feel loads better and my allergies are better and Soren spits up much less), and legumes.  I'm not losing fast, but I'm starting to see a definite shift towards losing instead of the stasis I saw before.  I'm also really ok with it taking a while since I just had a freaking baby.

I also am now taking L Glutamine and more B vitamins and that has done WONDERS for my alcohol cravings and food munchies.  I have actually had to remind myself that I am nursing a baby that has had some nursing issues and I need to eat enough to keep up my supply.  This has never ever been my problem, just the opposite.


And I'm losing centimeters, if not inches. So yay!
