South Beach Diet - Alas! July Weightloss "Results" Here, Please.

07-31-2008, 10:39 AM
Well....much as I hate to do this, I am a responsible adult, I think, so here we go.

I did not lose a frassing ounce in July and I know why. :mad:

Post your results if you wish and I'll update the sticky - tomorrow as we really have one more day.

(Before you ask, frass is caterpillar poop and a great substitute for the F word!)

I am cringing a little because I did not participate in posting hardly at all during July in our beloved South Beach section...either in daily posts nor the Exercise Challenge thread...but I am thrilled that I am now at 149 pounds :D

07-31-2008, 10:44 AM
BIG FAT ZERO for me! :(

(At least it wasn't a gain...)

12 as of today. That is just because I started the plan this month. For next month, I am hoping for 3-4 pounds as I know things are going to slow down now.

07-31-2008, 10:58 AM
I lost 9.2 this month. 3 of which were because I was horribly sick for a week. Things are normalizing for me, so next month should be more moderate.

I thought it would only be 2 or 3 pounds, but when I looked at my calendar and tallied the pounds... I loss 6.5 lbs! I'm so happy. I hope August is just as successful. :carrot:

I made 5 pounds again- and my eating hasn't been as on plan as it should be. I've upped the exercise intensity, so that's probably what carried me. I will need to be better in August!

My target was 6, and I actually lost 6. I don't know how, but I did. That's pretty awesome.

07-31-2008, 11:39 AM
i'll wait till tomorrow.. but it's gonna be a wash for me too... just waiting to see if it's 0 or a gain...

07-31-2008, 01:20 PM
sign me up for a big fat ZERO! Its TOM right now, but the scale has NOT been cooperating this month! I didn't even try to lose weight last summer, but this heat is not helping me out at all.

I started SBD June 29th... MY July loss was a whopping 17.2 lbs!
I hope to regulate my weight loss this month some.
THough it sure was a nice way to begin SBD!

07-31-2008, 01:57 PM
I've been on SBD 3 weeks now...just weighed myself this morning and down 1.6 pounds this week, for a total of 10.4 pounds! :)

No target for July, but I lost 6 on P1.

07-31-2008, 02:29 PM
I need to go to the Y today, if only so I can weigh in! DS has had VBS at night all week so I haven't been able to go and it's driving me nuts.

07-31-2008, 08:15 PM
I gained 2. Stupid stressful month.

07-31-2008, 08:35 PM
I have to wait until tomorrow to weigh in....stupid scale at work is broken and I refuse to put one in my house!!

.......down 7 pounds!! Goal was 6...exceeded by 1...I started Ph1 on July hopefully the pounds will continue to melt away!!

07-31-2008, 09:18 PM
I'm down 5 pounds....but I think my goal was 7......oh well. I need to be pleased with what I did!

07-31-2008, 10:39 PM
I have not lost any more weight since I weighed on the second day. I'm pretty bummed. I am supposed to have TOM next week so I hope that is my problem. :(

My loss for the month was 8 lbs (which is awesome BTW, I just thought it was going to be more after that initial drop.)

07-31-2008, 10:42 PM
-0- for me.

07-31-2008, 11:48 PM
Well...I've been pregnant for the entire month of July...but I'm going to jump in on this too....hopefully it will keep me on track and not gaining too much.

mmk, July totals = -2 lbs. Don't ask how...apparently the baby is eating me from the inside.

08-01-2008, 03:34 AM
Well from 7/13-7/31 I lost 15.5lbs.. but the weight loss is slowing down to like 2lbs a week now.

08-01-2008, 07:00 AM
OFFICIAL gain of ONE pound exactly.

only the 5th time in 26 months that I report a gain....

08-01-2008, 08:37 AM
Well, my goal was 4 lbs.

My scale - says I lost 3.8 lbs.

YMCA scales says I lost 4.5.

I think I'll say I made it. But not by much!!

(think inches,think thighs are each 2.5" smaller than they used to be!!!)

08-01-2008, 08:53 AM
My goal was to get into the 170s, which I did not make, but I did drop two lbs in July. After May and June being a wash, I will take it and be happy.

08-01-2008, 08:59 AM
July was a wash for me :(

08-01-2008, 09:54 AM
I lost 3 lbs. :dancer:- didn't make it to goal though.....

08-01-2008, 11:45 AM
Too much stress and bad eating. I gained.

08-01-2008, 12:11 PM
Nothing lost here, either (but I didn't gain!) :( august is a new month. :)

08-03-2008, 12:26 PM
I had a goal of 3. I lost 1.

08-03-2008, 02:26 PM
Here's an interesting fact. As a group, we lost 118.8 lbs in July (as reported in the July weightloss thread). Our goal for August so far is to lose 156 lbs. Hooray for us!

08-04-2008, 12:26 PM
Sorry I'm late - my son's big summer theater play was this weekend and it was a nutty couple of days.

You can up the July total to 127.6 as I lost 8.8 in July (started SBD July 9th.) It probably would have been more if I hadn't lost it halfway through the camping trip (but at least I did stick with SB for 2 of those 4 days!)

08-05-2008, 02:18 PM
Another late check-in here! Just got back from vacation and was expecting the worst (although I was mostly on plan while I was away). Anyway, I lost a total of 9lbs in July which I'm thrilled with. Hoping for a 7lb loss in August- that would put me in the 170s (which I haven't seen in a very long time, lol).
