(Marking my spot for April! I will come back and update this after the March thread is finished. )


Edit: Okay, March is officially done, so I am here! I ended up losing 14.6 lbs over the course of March, which means I was able to stay consistent after February, so I am thrilled with that despite having a slower week towards the end! For April, I am going to stay the course of having a goal of at least 10 lbs and just be happy if I continue to be able to lose more than that by the end of the month.


Best of luck to all of us in April!

Hello Everyone!

I know I have been side tracked recently with mum being off work and me looking after my sisters kids every now and then, also last weekend was my mums birthday as well as British Mothers Day, Mum went back to work yesterday, so I have been getting some work done!

Little baby Eoghan is soo quiet, I have not heard him cry any time I have been around. He is also his brothers double (who is now 2 and a half). Makes me a little broody .

Anyway.... I have been trying to get back on track, the gym is always blooming busy when I go and I never get on the right machines for my workouts it is really de-motivating. However, I have managed to hit a new low today at 271.6, I really need to gym today and go a run in the morning so that when I go for lunch tomorrow for my sisters 30th birthday, I dont have to sit there with ice, fresh air and leaves.

These are my March totals: 7.6 pounds down, 70.4 miles walked...

I'm committed to walking more in April. I'm fine with my weight loss at this point but want to keep it around this rate.

Rennie as always a big thank you for this monthly thread and it's always a pleasure seeing you pop in.

opheliapheonix, Vladadog great losses in March! Here's to more in April!

Scotsgal congrats on reaching a new low. Hope you can fin less busy times at the gym to get a satisfying workout.

curvynotlumpy to answer your question from the other thread, it seems that what I thought was my lower ankle swelling up is actually my Achille's tendon still. A coworker of mine who also suffers from this told me her doctor prescribed ice and Voltaren (an anti-inflammatory cream). Also I'm shopping for new shoes today, hope that will help as well.

Here's to a great new month for everyone!

1: 248.4

Glad to see so many people coming back for April! And, lots of great losses for March being reported...good work, everyone!

-----------------------------------------

Weigh-in was 242.6 today. I didn't get my whole 5 mile walk in last night, but I did get about 4.2 miles in before having to call it so that I could run to the store before it got too late. I got over 15k steps in for the day overall, though, so I still count it as on-plan. Water is still staying at exactly 12 servings everyday...I just don't feel like I can get any more than that in during my day right now, since I don't start consuming anything until 3pm due to IF. I may play with changing my hours again to slide them back earlier into the day like they used to be, but I will have to be successful on changing my bedtime first...still staying up wayyy too late every night. I consider it "early" if I'm in bed by midnight, which is sad because even that rarely happens...lol. That will probably be one of my main goals for the month! A more reasonable bedtime.

Happy April to all

The scale surprised me this morning by being back down to 203 lbs. Due to a surprise visitor from a friend to my home, I did a quick clean of my place to make it look presentable. I wish that I could maintain an uncluttered home but I've found it nearly impossible. There isn't an empty flat space that I don't like! Wanting to stay on task, I didn't really stop to eat much so I think the scale reflects that. Tonight I'm going the 40th anniversary celebration for one of our programs. Dinner will be served; a chicken dish with vegetable and starch no doubt.

Vladadog: You had a great month! Way to go on the pounds lost and your mileage!

Martine: Glad to hear that you got additional input on helping to heal your Achilles. The anti-inflammatory cream sounds promising. Have fun shoe shopping!

opheliaphoenix: I sympathize with your challenges. I, too, go to bed far later than I should and pay for it nearly every day. Good luck putting yourself to bed earlier. I think that's a great goal!

Morning everyone and happy April! And thank you Rennie for starting the new thread!

Scotsgal! WB! I hear you on the busy gym problem, I always feel like I'm standing next to the person using the lat machine and scowling impatiently, but that's just what my face looks like...

Vladadog, killer progress! Congrats!

Martine, I had really good luck with an anti-inflammatory cream on my shoulder. Hope you can track some down and it helps!

opheliaphoenix, great job in March! And a more reasonable bedtime is a great goal! They've done a lot of studies showing that you need to sleep to lose weight successfully and just to perform your best... now if only I could convince my advisor...

curvynotlumpy, I hear you, I spent all of yesterday cleaning too and my Fitbit says I hit 11,000 steps just between that and the (pretty limited) cardio I do on either side of the weights at the gym! I think about 8k of that was just cleaning

Traveller, 14.8 is a big loss for one month—way more than 2 pounds per week—so it seems like a little stall after that is maybe just to expected... Congrats on the fantastic progress and on adjusting to keep yourself on track!

I hit my targets on the gym and tracking last week, but not the sweets (that's okay, I was very deliberately not focusing on that one), so this week is my hit-the-target-on-the-sweets week. I decided to change my goal very slightly and say one sweet a week and two workouts, or I can go up to two sweets a week for three workouts, because especially when I have my period that one sweet a week is a killer, for me, since I include things in that like granola bars that are sometimes just a grad-student-in-a-hurry necessity. Not a huge drop, but at least I'm headed back down.

Weekly Stats:

1/1-1/7: 239.6 / 49.8%
1/8-1/14: 238.1 / 49.2% (4 sweets)
1/15-1/21: 238.5 / 49.5% (6 sweets)
1/22-1/28: 236.6 / 49.6% (4 sweets) [start of TOM]
1/29-2/4: 236.6 / 49.7% (11 sweets) [end of TOM]
2/5-2/11: 236.5 / 49.5% (1 sweet)
2/12-2/18: 236.1 / 49.1% (4 sweets, gym x2)
2/19-2/25: 236.6 / 49.0% (2 sweets, gym x2) [start of TOM]
2/26-3/4: <sick, didn't track or weigh in> [end of TOM]
3/5-3/11: 234.7 / 48.7% (3 sweets, gym x1)
3/12-3/18: 237.3 / 50.0% (4 sweets, gym x0)
3/19-3/25: 239.5 / 49.8% (6 sweets, gym x1) [start of TOM]
3/26-4/1: 238.4 / 49.6% (6 sweets, gym x2) [end of TOM]

Better habit goals: log food as I eat it (yes!), exercise twice a week (yes!), get down to no more than one sweet a week [or two if I work out 3x] (yes, but backslid)

Good morning

I hope everyone is having a good Sunday. Last night was a lot of fun and the dinner was as I expected, and really good! This was the 40th anniversary of our summer bridge program and the MCs for the evening were two of our past student coordinators who have gone on to great things. One will graduate from Stanford Law school in June and the other is off to Howard Law School in the fall. They're best friends and often get confused as a couple. To close the evening one announced that he had an important question to ask his co-MC. He took her hand and brought her out from behind the podium and dropped to one knee. People gasped! Instead of proposing, they both looked out to the audience and yelled, "April Fools'!" I totally bought in. Hook. Line. Sinker! One of the better April Fools' jokes I've ever been part of.

Traveller: 14.8 pounds--outstanding job! Keep up the great work!

Vivvian: Well done on your goals of gym and tracking. It's a real challenge to get all those cylinders hitting at the same time in the right way. I admire that you're always working toward that goal.
