Well, I'm still not going to make ONEDERLAND this month, but maybe I can March out of the teens! I'm in.

March-
1-217.4
2-216.8
3-218.8 (one of those life is not fair day. Perfect calories. Excellent workout. Scale up two. Ouch.)
4 217.4 (all around the mulberry bush the monkey chase the weasel, uber's weight goes up and down...)
5 217.4 (AWFUL workout with PT yesterday, and really sore today... so maybe tomorrow?)
6 218.6 (YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!?!?!?!?! GRRRRRR)
7 217.4 (after a work day which usually bumps me up so this MUST mean I'm going to be down within a day or two.)

March- ONEDERLAND!!
1- 205.6
2- 205.4 (Carving a mountain with a teaspoon. At least it's the right direction.)
3- 203.6 (Scale did the wobbly thing again. First 204.8, then 202.6 and then 203.6 4 times in a row. Frustrating for the wobble, happy for the loss!)
4 - 202.4 (No wobbly scale today. It must be right.)
5 - 202.4 (Who the heck knows. More scale wobblies. I finally gave up and will just record what it said yesterday. It went from 202.0 to 204.8 never resting on one more than once! I ate 1600 calories yesterday. A bit more than I have the last few days, but not at a level to gain weight. Maybe it's time for a new scale?)
6 - 201.6 (Love the new scale. It is very consistant and no more wobblies!)
7 - 201.6
8 - 201.6 (Soooo consistant! This is a good thing, right? LOL!)
9 - 200.8 (YAY! Some movement!)
10 - 200.6 (Anything is better than nothing. I can officially claim the 200 now.)
11 - 199.8 (I will claim Onederland, but am nervous about rebound. YAY!)
12 - 199.8 (No rebound. Hopefully tomorrow it will move.)
13 - 199.8 (Seriously consistant scale! Geez! I am rockin' out over here and nothing is happenning! If the pattern above repeats itself maybe there will be movement tomorrow.)
14 - 200.2 (Not the break I was looking for. I have been OP and started C25K)
15 - 200.4 (Please tell me this will break soon?? I am PERFECT OP & doing C25K)
16 - 200.2 (I can only guess TOM is approaching. I know I'm doing the right things. It's out of my hands now.)
17 - 199.8 (Still think TOM is coming, but I like the direction. This # is familiar!)
18 - 199.6 (New territory! I feel like an inchworm, but I'll take it!)
19 - 199.0 (This is good!)
20 - 199.0
21 - 198.8
22 - 199.2
23 - 201.0
24 - 200.0
25 - 198.4
26 - 198.6
27 - 200.4
28 - didn't weigh
29 - 198.4
30 - 197.8 (Totally new territory! Woohoo! :carrot:)

I'd like to be a bit under 199 by the end of March. Maybe 195 also. Whatever the loss is, I will take it! Every day on plan in March!

I'm not close enough to Onederland, but I've been thinking that tracking my daily weight (now that I have a better scale!) might be helpful for me, so if it's ok, I can do that here too? I'll be reading here to root everyone else on anyway!

cfmama
03-01-2010, 12:28 PM
I'm up AGAIN to 202.2. I worked out pretty heavily yesterday followed by a LONG arse walk. I'm tempted to just quit working out until I get below 200 ;) lol!!!!!

I am imagining I am in for a bit of just hanging around this number... hopefully not too long though!

Eliana
03-01-2010, 12:55 PM
I contemplated quitting the workouts to get under 200, but all that will do is shoot you back up once you restart, and you'll have less endurance, and it may take a while for the scale to start moving again. But you knew all that. ;)

Any day now! How frustrating to go back up. Don't you just hate water weight?

Oh, and blow on my ticker, would 'ya? ;) It hasn't budged in over a week!

03-01-2010, 01:17 PM
OMG, I am SO in on this challenge!
I only weigh once a week because I get totally obsessed otherwise, but I'm determined to hit Onederland before the end of March. Will weigh in on a Friday and post then, but will be hanging around daily to see how the daily weighers are getting on. I am SO excited that Onederland is almost within reach.

Annoyingly, my weight is up again. Basically I've been stalled for two months. But I suppose I've learned a few things. And meantime, my waist measurement is down 1.5 inches (from 39 to 37.5), as well as my other measurements going down. So I will just keep on, with adjustments.

1 - 203
2 - 203 (this is actually good. My weight always fluctuates so I tend to think of it as my weight range. It has not bounced up to 204 for several days now so I will see 202 any day!)

Hope you don't mind if I join. I need to lose 90 lbs so consider myself a 100 lb club member (it might as well be 1,000 lbs at this point). I'd LOVE to get to ONEderland by April 1, but if I can just get out of the teens, I'd be cheering from the rooftops. If I shouldn't post in the 100 lb club, just let me know.
Thanks!

There is no rule that you have to be 100 pounds overweight to post in the 100 club. Our dear Robin and Lori and Glory have not one ounce left to lose and we all get happy when they post - so welcome!

Got a bit stuck in February - saw 211 but then bounced back up to 214 and hung out. I start workinig one shift (instead of bouncing around between three) this week, so I have high hopes that my body will figure out where we're going and what we're doing. Exercise will also be easier with a more routine schedule.

So having said all that - let's MARCH!

3-1 214

Still at 203 today but this is actually good. My weight always fluctuates so I tend to think of it as my weight range. It has not bounced up to 204 for several days now so I will see 202 any day!

I have noticed that most most here have weights with decimal points. My scale is old. It is digital but only measures in whole numbers. It is probably inaccurate and I need (want) to replace it but not until I get to 190 by this scale. At this point, I just couldn't bear to see another 10 pounds!

I am not a happy person today... last night I came down with a bad case of diarrhea and subsequently the scale went UP a pound over night. I'm TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY on plan... so I'm hoping it's just cause I'm sick :(

Either which way I cried my eyes out because I am NOT USED to seeing the scale go up when I've been completely on plan and not in that TOM...

oh well. Tomorrow's another day.

Diarrhea and scale went up! That sucks! Hang in there, cfmama. The scale will go down! Hope you feel better soon.

BeachBreeze2010

Feel better soon! Any weight changes not related to plan activity are temporary. You probably are already there, you just need your body to rebalance and then you'll see it on the scale!

PeanutsMom704
03-02-2010, 12:53 PM
feel better soon, cfmama!!

And you know that the weight is just your body trying to hold onto whatever water it can when you are losing too much of it. It may take another day or two to get sorted out and the timing is of course so frustrating, but you have not gained any actual weight.

Yeah, definitely do NOT replace your scale right now! I just did this recently and while I'm glad to have a new and accurate scale (gives me the same weight, doesn't give me 5 different weights if I get on and off 5 different times! lol!), it was definitely traumatic to "gain" the difference when I was at 226 and focused on getting into the 2-teens only to find myself back in the 230s!

Some people are lucky and "lose" weight with a new scale, but I knew I wouldn't be that lucky, and of course, I wasn't! lol! I wouldn't take that chance if I were you either, but 190 should be a safe enough cushion to make sure you are safely in Onederland no matter what!

(to any newbies out there reading this, I'll just say to go and get a new scale right now, don't wait until you are part way through!!!)

I've got to share this with you chickies... I'm stressing out big time. I was SO FREAKING CLOSE to onederland and then gaining weight FOR NO REASON... it's just freaking me out. And RIGHT AS WE SPEAK after dinner and a liter of water I am 209.4... and that will only drop about 3 lbs before bed and then 2 ish over night... so putting me at 204. something. WTH. I am honestly seriously DEAD serious when i say I am COMPLETELY on plan. 100%. With no changes. Period.

*sigh*

I just feel so... defeated. I'm tempted to stay off the scale for a bit. This is stressing me out.

Aw gosh. :hug::hug: That just sucks! But it's just going to be that much sweeter when you arrive-- which will be SOON. Give your body time to sort out its water problem. Diarrhea makes your electrolytes go all wacky.

PeanutsMom704
03-03-2010, 08:47 AM
Agree with everything uber said - this is just a result of your body being a little out of whack.

I'm not saying it could hurt to take a scale break if that's what you want to do but please, don't be too hard on yourself. Just continue on plan and it WILL happen, and very soon.

Eliana
03-03-2010, 08:59 AM
CF, part of your feeling defeated is because you're so close to a major milestone. That really sucks. You probably wouldn't feel as bad if you were 10 lbs away either way. You may even be amused by your wonky body.

I'm getting over bronchitis at the moment and have been stuck at the same weight while being totally on plan. Yesterday I measured and consumed 1200 calories and gained a 1/2 pound. I think maybe our bodies are hanging on to water to repair/mend whatever is happening inside our ill bodies. For you, maybe you're retaining BECAUSE you have diarrhea as a way of conserving what your body knows it's going to lose, keeping you from dehydrating.

Hang tough!

BeachBreeze2010
03-03-2010, 10:34 AM
Are you having any other symptoms beyond the diarhea? Fever, fatigue? Have you eaten something new that you don't normally eat? Reacting to that?

I think the ladies are right, your body is holding onto fluids while it repairs itself. I still stand by my earlier prediction - you're already there - the scale just isn't showing it because of these other things going on.

I am carrying an umbrella so I don't get wet from the woosh that's coming any minute!

After a serious stall in Feb, the scale is wooshing like crazy for me. 3lbs down last week and another 3lbs down so far this week. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining, I just hope it is here to stay! I keep thinking that the scale somehow is wrong. It's not giving me the utmost confidence in it with all of its indecision. I have an analog scale also (that seems to be less accurate) but they both are moving in the same downward direction, so I think it might be right. I have been journaling really tightly and keeping my calories from 1200 to 1400 whereas before I had them at 1500 to 1700. Maybe this is the difference I needed. My clothes are fitting looser now than they were at the beginning of the week.

Sometimes I just have to accept things that I don't want to accept. I have lowered my calorie levels and my loss has improved. I have been thinking a great deal about all Robin's posts about the willingness to do whatever it takes to lose this weight. I had to ask myself what am I willing to do? Am I willing to do more than I have been doing for the past 3 months? The funny thing is that now I have lowered my calories, it is not the big deal that I thought that it would be. It is not that drastic a difference. I was averaging 1350/day and I dropped it to an average of 1250/day but that 100 calories seems to make a difference.

cfmama

Time2lose... I hear ya... I'm averaging around there too and the scale is finally moving. Whatever it freaking takes right? It it's easy to get used to if you are eating the right foods.

Time2Lose... interesting that dropping your cals by 100 cals has made a difference....

100 calories is such a tiny margin of error-- even though I weigh and measure most of my food I always figure that there is a 200 calorie margin of error in there.

Me, I'm just bobbing up and down. Dang, I want to hit 215 which would be my 80 lb mark.

This is so COOL and interesting ! Everyone posting daily shows exactly that our weights are fluctuating all the time...This shows in black and white that there is no accurate reading but a (hopefully downward) general trend... Silly but I feel so much better seeing this.

Hi Marigrace! That's exactly why I wanted to join this! It inspired me to do the fitday account also so I can see my weight on a graph. If anything, I am less obsessed with the scale weighing every day because I have the recorded numbers and can see where I am on a trend. It is also very reassuring to see everyone else with the same fluctuations.

Great idea for a thread!! :D

I am beginning to get really frustrated with my scale! More scale wobblies today. I finally gave up and will just record what it said yesterday. It went from 202.0 to 204.8 never resting on one more than once! I ate 1600 calories yesterday. A bit more than I have the last few days, but not at a level to gain weight. Maybe it's time for a new scale? The analog I have been using for comparison didn't show a gain. It's just hard to get exact because the little slash marks are so close together. I know what Peanuts Mom went through with this and I know it isn't an easy transition, but I just want a consistant answer every day. Is that too much to ask???

Any scale reccomendations? I don't want to spend a fortune and don't need all of the other toys. Just my weight, preferably digital and in at least .2 increments. Oh yeah, and right! LOL!

Any Onederlanders out there today?? I am thinking about you guys - Brit and cfmama!!

Well I had my weekly weigh in this morning and it was a huge disappointment. The scale bounced around a bit but ended up settling on a half pound loss only. I am just so bummed. I really wanted 2lbs this week to get me to 5st/70lbs lost and ever closer to Onederland.
I did however take my anger out on the treadmill at the gym and went from yesterday's 8min runs to 20mins today. If the scales won't co-operate then I'm making sure my body knows it's not going to win, this weight will come off.

Wow, you are all so focused and motivated. Not sure if I want to keep my eye on the ball so closely. Sometimes, it helps to direct some of the energy elsewhere. I think learning to live well is probably key to our success and the weight will magically melt away.

I had a shock. My scale said 201 this morning. :) It can't be true. I saw 202 for the first time yesterday so I haven't even counted that! I won't claim that 201 until I have seen it a couple of times but I am claiming the 202. You know, I am really going to get into the 190s!

Time2Lose-- good for you! I'm impressed and interested that dropping your calories helped. I'm scrutinizing my plan trying to figure out if I'm overestimating my calories. For example-- weighing my baked yam gave me a very different calorie count from measuring it as one cup. GRRR.

LovingMe-- WTG on the 20 min run!!!

Beachbreeze-- I used to weigh, no lie, 8 x daily on my old scale. It would give me different numbers 8x. It really helped me to get one that was always the same.

Marigrace-- it is interesting seeing the numbers laid out like this-- although it kind of depresses me to FOCUS on how long it's been since a loss. Usually I try not to think about it and give myself little pep talks, or reasons, like today I'm really sore from a workout. But I have to work my "day job" over the weekend and I ALWAYS see a water weight gain of at least two pounds, and then it takes two days to drop back, so now I know if I don't see a loss tomorrow, it will be till Wednesday. Grrr.

I bought a new scale yesterday. I found a basic one and so far I really like it. It weighed me the same thing in the kitchen and in the bathroom upstairs. The good news is that it's about 1/2lb lower than the old one. I had been prepping myself for it to show something higher. Today it told me 201.6 and the other one 202.4. I will start using the new one and not look back. Onederland here I come!

I was at 209 this morning. That makes my weight loss so far 41lbs. The scale keeps going up and down, though. Hopefully tomorrow it's still 209 or lower. I have been sticking to my diet and working out. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the scale doesn't start this up and down game with me tomorrow.

Well the scale was up to 207.5 this morning.
I had a bad fall on Saturday and am very bruised and sore from it, so I think I must be retaining water. I've been on plan and have still got some exercise in.
I just feel like Onederland is laughing at me and saying, oh no, you're not allowed in here, you're never going to be slim.
I'm drinking loads of water today and have been and done my normal step class even though I was sore, and will just hope that the number starts to drop again quickly.

Down to 211 this morning after a long weekend with a house full of company. I ate on plan. That is a huge NSV for me. Honestly - giving up meat and that being why I don't eat like everyone else is somehow easier than not eating like everyone else because I don't eat that stuff. How weird is that??? Thinking of checking out the ticker factory - weight loss doesn't feel real until I see it on my ticker. :-)

Oh BeachBreeze2010, you are practically there!

I was 204 again this morning. It got me wondering if the 202 was the fluke instead of the 204. However, there is nothing for me to do but keep on keeping on. I am going out of town tomorrow so tomorrow's weigh in will be the last that I have for a few days. I will still be 100% on plan even though traveling so maybe when I get back I will see the magic number.

Go Beach Breeze!!! Good for you!!!

Me ladies, I think I shouldn't have joined. I'm having the WORST MONTH EVER!!! My weight is STUCK at 217.4. It bobs up from there, but never down. I am sticking to be plan LIKE GLUE-- I'm being even more neurotic about weighing and measuring ever bite than before.

I must be the first person in the history of mankind who doesn't lose even after taking up RUNNING.

I'm so depressed.

Every single day, I step on the scale and I say "oh, it's because I'm sore, or I ate sodium, or I haven't pooped, it HAS to move tomorrow, and then, nothing.

Uber - Do you have any health problems that might cause your weight to stick like that? Maybe present your food journal and scale history to the dr next time you go in? An entire month seems like a long time?? Maybe the more experienced vets have some ideas? Regardless, you are sure to be in better shape from running and the good foods are terrific for your body regardless of the weight loss. As you get closer and closer to goal, you'll appreciate the fitness. Keep going!!

I'm happy to report that I FINALLY saw the scale budge downwards... 216 this morning.... :carrot::carrot:

Edited to add: A review of my stats reveals that in fact I have lost 3 lbs since 2/15, which means I'm still doing a pound a week....I've also noticed that my BF percentage seems to be edging down, and I lost another inch from rib cage and hips (not tummy though. Drat) It is hard to work this hard and lose so slowly that it's like watching paint dry on a wall...

BeachBreeze, Well done! Sometimes I wish my scale included one decimal place instead of whole numbers. As I have said before, when I get to 190 on my scale I will buy a new one. I just could not bear to get a new one now and find my weight at 210 or something!

I am holding steady at 200. I may skip weighing for a few days if I can stand it. The suspense is killing me!

I have a while to go before I can hit onederland....I haven't been in onederland since junior high or before. :)

I admit that I do often consider getting a new digital scale. the one I have works, but only for less than 300lbs. :( I am telling myself to just tough it out on the regular scale until I get below 300lbs.

My scale showed 200 this morning, so I'm REALLY close! Official weigh in day tomorrow, wonder if I can do it or if the scales are going to taunt me and have me up tomorrow lol.

LOL mine says the same thing too!!! I have a wicked unibrow if I let it go ;)

Me too... it must be the Slovic in me. My brother gets the same thing, and his friends all call him "Da brow" in this weird voice haha.

I noticed we're about the same height and the same weight. Would you mind if I asked what pant size you were? I'm just curious.

Oh and I got the 1.8 pound gain off lol. It's funny because my boyfriend's mom made corned beef and cabbage for St. Patty's last night, and I got down on that corned beef. It was sooo good. I thought for sure I'd gain, but nope. Scale says 206.4, but I think it's really 206.2 because I couldn't weigh myself until an hour ago, after having breakfast, going to class, and drinking starbucks.

Well, knew it was too good to be true. Up to 200.5 this morning, but TOM is on the way any day now so it's not surprising really.
Not getting weighed for a few days now til the TOM bloat is over, but hopefully I'll still make it before the end of the month.

LovingMe - You can do this!! It will happen very soon, I know it!

Today was 199.0 today. So, some progress. I will not be completey relieved until I see something that is more than 2lbs away from 200.

Not sure if I have enough time to make it to Onderland this month, but today I weighed in at 206 before breakfast. I feel like a big woosh is coming my way soon. I have been on plan, but the scale has been up and down a lot. I'm meeting with my trainer today to exercise like crazy. Maybe that'll help some?

LovingMe - You're so close. Keep going, and don't give up! You can do it.

LovingMe - water weight sucks! I think that it is a good idea to wait until after TOM to weigh again.

BeachBreeze - I think that you are in onederland to stay!

Asherdoodles - You will get there! Just keep on keeping on.

This morning the scale teased me, flickered 198 and settled on 199! I am not claiming onederland yet. I am sick and have been in bed so I have none of the water weight that I normally have after sitting all day. I am afraid that my weight will go up a pound or two when I resume my normal life. I see this as a preview of things to come! My reaction to the 199 really surprised me. I almost burst out in tears and probably will when I think that it is permanent.

Well, 198 this morning. I was up and around some yesterday but still afraid to claim onederland as I am afraid that I am going to bounce back into the low 200s.

Thanks BeachBreeze! Today I got 198. Since that is 3 days in a row, I am going to claim onederland. Then not weigh until next Sat., my official weigh day!

Amazing news Time2Lose, I posted in your own thread about it.
My scale showed 202 this morning which isn't what I wanted to see, but it's still TOM and I always seem to go up over the weekend, probably due to more sodium.
I'm trying to stay positive and believe that I'll still hit Onederland before the end of the month.

I hope that this thread keeps going until the end of March. I was 198 this morning so I am firmly in Onederland. How is everyone else doing?

I'm still going to be here fighting to reach Onederland!
I saw 200.5 on the scale again this morning so it's heading in the right direction.

I'm at 205 this morning. I weighed in with my dietitian. I'm still hoping to lose a couple of more by the end of March, but probably won't reach Onderland until April. However, I'm expecting a woosh because my TOM is almost over (hopefully). I have PCOS, and I have had my TOM now for two and half weeks. So maybe the weight will go down a little more. It tends to after TOM because of bloating and such.

I weighed in at 203 this morning, but I don't see how that's possible because I ate more calories then I normally do. I ate a larger breakfast yesterday then normal. I also didn't exercise yesterday because I was planning to get a good workout done this morning at my campus's rec center. Our bodies are so weird sometimes. When I expect to lose sometimes I don't, and when I expect to stay the same or gain I don't. TOM is finally over so maybe that's how I lost it.

im the same way asher..one night i went out to an all you can eat buffet and chowed on numerous calories..weighed in next morning and still lost weight...now if only that worked all the time;)

I was at 204.5 this morning, but I can tell by the BF% measure on my scale that I'm retaining some water and very likely due for a "whoosh" downward of 3 to 5 pounds pretty soon. My period is also due sometime in the next 2 to 5 days, I think (though I don't think I usually retain much water from that).

Anyways, I don't think I'll be in Onederland by the end of March, but I'll certainly be closer than I was at the beginning of the month. I suppose I still could make it, but I'll just keep marching along rather than holding my breath for it.

Congrats LovingMe!

I am still stuck at 203. I guess I'll meet Onderland in April. I started March off at 211. So I got down to 203. That's a loss of 8lbs. I guess I can't ask for much more then that. That's about an average of 2lbs per week. I guess I can't expect more from my body.

WarMaiden - I hope you make it to Onderland soon! You're so close. Good luck!
