This is entertaining to me...there is a thread for "getting out of the 230's" and I can't believe I am in the 220's AND there is a part of me that wants to be a part of that thread...soooooooooooo

I decided to make a new thread...getting out of the 220's Challenge! Getting closer and closer to ONEDERLAND...let's cheer :cheer: each other on!!

Anyone game?? My ticker is MIA so I don't even know what I weigh..except I am in the 220's...so tomorrow I will do the SW & GW

Hi and thanks for making this thread! I know what you mean about the other thread, I joined it the other morning before weigh-in, and honestly didn't think I would be out of the 30's. To my surprise I had a 3.8 lb loss for the week.

SW 229.2
GW 219

I love the looks of that! 219! :)

Here's to us getting out of the 20's. :)

Hey! I'm glad for this thread! I got out of the 230's just before that thread, and honestly wanted to be apart of it, but I hit 225 yesterday! It's crazy to me that I am so close to 200, and then onderland! I just hope that the 220's rushes by!

Thanks Jacki! I was at 226 before I bought a new scale and changed all my numbers this past Saturday, so I'm REALLY motived to get back into the 220s, and back to 226 on the new scale, so that I'll feel like I'm making real progress again. I mean, I know I'm still losing weight and that's good, but I was really excited about being so close to the 2-teens, so it was hard to be back up in the 230s again.

Jacki- I have been working out 3-4x a week at the gym for atleast an hour. And I go for a walk every day either in the morning or night. My biggest thing has been dropping processed foods. The only processed food I eat is Special K crackers and Special K cereal. The rest is whole foods. I stay on the outside of the grocery store. Fruits, Whole grain breads, veggies, meats(pork chops, chicken, lean beed), eggs, milk(Skim). All I do is count my calories and make sure I don't eat bad foods. I was stalled for like 2.5 weeks, my weight just started moving again, thank God!

JackiG
03-05-2010, 07:15 AM
Kayhm0711, my lifestyle is just like yours. I workout every morning (I just started Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, before that I was doing Slim In 6), and every night for 1 hour at the gym (alternate cardio and strength days). I calorie count and eat whole foods. This past week, I started the zig zag method, and added new exercise. Hopefully I have a great week, I can't wait to see the teens. :)

2nd day of orientation, stayed on track. once I got to moving around, scrub bottoms, size L, seem a bit loose, hopefully I can tighten them down enough. I think alot of it is just my height and the fact ALL of my weight appears to be centered right around the lower abs. But the fact is, I'm moving, accounting for everything in my mouth and it slowly melts off.

ps, i love having you ladies here, all of 3fc, but especially those with the same exact goal, as far as the 220's, 2teens, under 199, its amazing how much easier it is to focus

Do people weigh everyday and then do you change your ticker. I change my ticker once a week...because it seems that sometimes I will weigh a pound more when I weigh everyday...so then do you change your ticker if you weigh in more?

I can't wait to get out of the 220's! I feel it coming...so come on everyone...we gotta hit the teens TOGETHER! I wonder who our new friends will be in the teens? <big smile>

I used to only change my ticker once a week, on a day I designated as my official WI day. But now I'm weighing every day (tracking it here on another thread, and also for my GWF). I don't change my ticker every day, but will when it's a big enough change and/or I am hitting a particular milestone. For example, I changed it today because I hit 35.8 lbs lost and wanted to update my chickie avatar. I will change again when I get to 226 because this is a significant number to me - it was the number on the old scale before I switched to a new scale. So even though I'm still losing pounds, it will mean a lot to me to get back to 226 and feel like I'm losing "new weight" again. (although still annoying because I'd be just over 220 right now and almost into the teens on my old scale!!)

I haven't adjusted upwards if it's a small difference, which to me would be less than 1 lb, and I'm fine with considering that a daily fluctuation. More than that, I would go ahead and change the ticker and work my way back down.

peanutsmom - I could just LOWER my goal weight by a few pounds, to me its just an arbitrary number right now anyways. I just made it the highest possible weight for my BMI to be "normal". Its possible that I will change it when I get there...

We are the same weight! I noticed that! LOL. But you're slightly taller.

going for my hike this morning. I have been averaging 3 lbs a month at first it was hard to swallow but then I looked at it over all, that will be 32 lbs a year, and that made me smile, if not by June then later this year, I am all right with that but still pushing for June too!!! I feel the power of confidence, of staying on track. you ladies Rock!!

I've had periods that were really slow too, and I felt the same way - even if I lost 25 lbs a year, in 4 years, I will have lost 100 lbs and be at(close) to goal. That's still WAY better than being the same weight in 4 years, or worse, even heavier.

I've been fortunate to have some quicker losses lately, since I got a Gowear Fit and can make sure my calorie burn is enough each day.

Hi Peanutsmom,
thankyou for your encouraging words, I only have 1 more lb to be in my 3lb loss average for the month, but also not going to sweat it, aunt flo hasnt shown up, I expect her next week, and I also will be going to Wisconsin for spring break. As long as I can maintain I know it will be a NSV for me. I did get in my hike this monring and I feel great.

how is everyone doing on this? I was on the 230s thread and see that we are going to have several new people in the 220s very soon! So let's see who is going to lead the way out of the 220s - hopefully we'll need the "get me out of the 2-teens" thread very soon!!

I'm at 226.4 today - not where I hoped but after gaining 4 lbs the beginning of the week thanks to being sick, I guess it could be worse. I was hoping to officially be in the lower 220s by tomorrow, but at this point, I'd be thrilled to just be back to where I was.

226 this morning. This new schedule is KILLING me. Especially the 70 hours I'll be working this week, which includes orientation type things everyone does every month. Unfortunately, they're both taking place this month on both of my days off. This is also spring break week for us, thankfully, just means more juggling of kids though :| I'm really planning on being 220 by my birthday. That would be fantastic!

Yesterday I weighed in at 227.5 and today was back at 228.8. I think it's normal fluctuations as I actually had a really good diet day yesterday.

Today I am already in an "I don't wanna work out" mood, but that's not gonna fly, lol, I'm working out whether I like it or not! ;)

03-23-2010, 03:26 PM
Yeah. Last night I REALLY didn't want to work out. I was tired, we had a late dinner and I hate working out after I eat. Still, I hauled my butt out and put in an hour on the bike.

It was not my best workout ever, but i am glad that I did it. If "I feel like it" rules my workout schedule, I'm in big trouble!

225 this morning, but Sunday is the 'official' day but the daily watching makes it MUCH easier to stay in control during the day. Here's a question, why is it on days I work 12 hour shifts, 7p-7a, and eat about 8 times, small meals and snacks, I weigh 2 lbs less at 8 am, when I get home and weigh myself? Seems like I would weigh more. Though, I do ALOT of lifting and moving at work

228.2 today, that's down .6 from yesterday.

I'm anxious to get out of the 220's, of course, but I can't help but be a little astonished that I'm here to begin with. The 220's and below were really not numbers I felt were possible for myself. I thought maybe I was meant to be big and wouldn't get below 250 no matter how hard I tried.

Anyone else ever feel that way?

I feel like I will never get out of the 220's! I've been bouncing around from 227-224 for the past three weeks and now I'm currently at the high end of that number. It's getting crazy. I know I have no one to blame but myself, because I've been getting a lot more treats lately and have no will power to resist. It's discouraging really because I want to get out of the 220's, yet I feel like I will be here forever!

I had some slip-ups on vacation. Despite my planning and the rules I set for myself, I didn't stay in control. I am just barely in the 220's at 229.9. I am quite relieved that it's not just one tenth higher, but also pretty disappointed in myself. But I am back home now and ready to be 100% committed.

Dunno what's going to happen for the next week or so, though...I am not sure if I should expect more water retention or to shed some. TOM spent a long time building up before finally coming to visit and I feel horribly bloated. I have absolutely NO idea why the scale was down today - I would think it would bounce up like it did earlier this week.

224.4? 'm not exactly sure -how- I'm losing since I'm pretty much glued to the couch, except I've got nothing to do now but watch my calories with an eagle eye. And absolutely no room for wiggle room, so even the smaller things I may have worked into my calorie plans are gone, since I'm getting absolutely no exercise I won't eat or drink anything that I have to -make room- for.

222!!! AND I'm taking a passel of kids to the pool today, which is a mega calorie burn.

(whine) The last two days I have missed two workouts in a row, which I haven't done since New Year's. It was my younger son's birthday yesterday. There was no time until very late, and by then I just fell into bed. Perhaps it was its own workout, as I lost a little bit. I HATE missing workouts. :( (/whine)

I'm still hanging at 223.6. I'm hoping for a whoosh down to 222.X soon so I can be that much closer to the teens. Hopefully to at least 222.6 because that would mean that I've lost exactly what my son weighs (40.6 this morning) lol! I can hardly pick him up and carry him any more so it's incredible to think I was walking around with all that extra weight.

Sigh... I have been out of it for like 3 weeks. Luckily, I haven't gained the weight back, but I certainly haven't lost either. I don't understand why I am having so much trouble. I'm getting back into it one day at a time though and Friday was a really good day. I weighed in at 228.2 and stayed on plan all day.

We are going on a weekend getaway with the in-laws in early May so I would like to drop a few more pounds by then... It would be incredible if I could get down to 220 in time. Part of the trip includes visiting an amusement park and that hasn't been something I've actually enjoyed in a very long time, but at 220 I just might feel better about fitting on rides!

unfortunately, the scale is going in the wrong direction for me, so I'm going to be in the 220s for a bit longer. It's because I started working out again, after not being able to for almost a month (upper respiratory stuff and a sinus infection). So I know where the increase is coming from - not that it makes me happy to be back up to 224.4 this morning, ugh! But I am happy to be able to work out again, and I know that the scale will catch up with me, eventually.

I went back up all the way to 226.4 but am working my way back down and was at 224.0 this morning. And this time, I'm NOT stopping until I get out of the 220s!!

Love to join your challenge...did a lot of yard work today, on a break right now still have some weed wacking and then the sweeping up to do. Feels good just to get outside and enjoy the nice weather! I also have been trying to work out with turbo jam a few times a week and trying to stay away from the chips. My weigh in day is Tuesday...good luck everyone!
Hugs

222.8:carrot::carrot:

It's great to make some progress as I had stalled at 228 for a month!

225.3 today, that's down .9 from last week... Would have liked more, but I am happy with any loss!

I tried to gain some extra motivation this week - I tried on some size 18 jeans and they fasten, but are too small, but not THAT small! I can't believe I'm on the verge of being able to get a pair of jeans in the regular size department at Wal-Mart, lol, yay for $12 transition jeans! I never find plus sizes under $22.

I also posted some progress pictures on Facebook and they received a lot more attention than I anticipated. This way, I feel those people will help hold me accountable; I don't want to gain it all back then run into all of them in public!

Okay it's official I weighed in at under 220 today! Officially 219.6! I'm super thrilled and thought that I would never leave the 220's! Good luck to all you ladies and I will see you in the 2-teens group!

224.6 today. My weight has stalled momentarily, but I feel confidant that it'll drop soon enough, so long as I stay on plan.

Congrats, Megan!

Congrats, Megan!!! :carrot:

224.7 today - that's a little better! (Just had to get some poop out after about 3 days, lol) It's nice to be in the lower half of the decade, at least! :D

I would like to join...I am at exactly 229...and sometimes it bounces back up to 230. I have not been under 222 in over 3 years...and under 200 for 6 years. I can't wait to lose more! Gotta keep going! :)

Hi girls. I would like to join you all in this challenge. I am at 229. I have been in the 230's challenge. It really helped me to focus on this 10 lbs. at a time. I plan to be in the teens at the end of May. Then I will happily join the 210's challenge. Hey I am heading to my major major goal 199!!!!!!......I am looking forward to a good summer!!!!

who else is still in the 220s?

I had a crazy April and ended up putting back several pounds, but at least I'm back down to 224.6 today, so more than halfway back through the 220s and hope to be busting out soon!!!

I'm stil at 227...my body just seems to love the 220. When I lost 30 pounds 5 years ago, I plateued at 222...and never could get under. So the 220s freak me out. Come on body let the fat go already!!

I'm down to 222.2 this morning. I made it down to 221.8 before and then lost my focus and went as high as the 228s but I am determined not to do that again.

PinkHoodie
05-08-2010, 10:53 AM
Ugh back up at 228.8 this morning...I hate feeling frustrated but I can't help it! :P

223 this morning, I was 221.6 on Friday... ummm, Im's soooo close I can taste it. Weekends are so hard for me, I'll be enjoying a nice meal tonight so I'm hope'n it won't tilt to scale too much!

PinkHoodie
05-09-2010, 11:33 PM
These 220s will be the death of me. I just can't shake them! Why does my body like to sit here? I just don't get it, and its really frustrating me. I made it down to 222 in 06 and was there for 2 months, and ended up giving up. I don't want to do that again this time, but I am feeling frustrated...

Pink Hoodie -

Maybe after losing 13 lbs, you need to cut back a little? In WW, you'd lose 1 pt, approx 50 calories from having moved down over 10 lbs, because your smaller body requires a few less calories to perform the same functions.

I know the conventional wisdom around here frequently seems to be to increase calories but at least in my personal experience that doesn't work for me.

PeanutsMom704
05-10-2010, 09:17 AM
I'm holding steady at 222.2 today, which I think is good considering I had a carb- heavy day on Saturday due to not feeling well, and then yesterday, enjoyed some treats for Mothers Day. I was within my planned calories both days, but it wasn't the kind of food I normally eat.

Back to my usual today, and hoping to see some more forward progress!

PinkHoodie
05-10-2010, 11:28 AM
Thanks Peanut! I'm thinking the biggest culprit is I stopped exercising last week. So I will start up again this week, and if I still don't lose, then I will have to evaluate a little more closely my food/calories... Thanks again though! :)

222.4 today I haven't been able to get to the gym for over a week. (DDs car wreck) Wednesday I will be back full charge. 2 teens here I come!

PeanutsMom704
05-11-2010, 09:25 PM
I forgot to update here - I was up to 223.2 this morning. I'm not sure why I went up a lb, I was completely on plan yesterday (and for several days) but 1 lb seems a little high for just a random fluctuation, at least for me. So I have no idea where I'll be tomorrow!

PeanutsMom704
05-12-2010, 04:06 PM
the fake 1 lb was gone this morning along with another .2, so down to 222.0

Just 2.2 to go!!

(I think I should go buy a lottery ticket with the number 2 on it! lol!)

up .4 to 222.4

I'm starting to feel like breaking into 221 is going to be my issue and then (hopefully) it will be smooth sailing after that!

OK the I stepped on the scale this morning and it yelled at me 219.8! Now yesterday I was 223. I got off scale showered, moved the scale. I then stepped on the scale again 219.8! I of course didn't believe it. SOOOO the nutjob that I am. I got dressed drove 20 minutes walked into the gym. Got completely undressed (in the dressing room) and climbed on the scale. 219.8-219.6. I know I know I can't officially "claim it". BUT today for even just a few hours... I was 219! Stay tuned...
