The 2-teens is a yucky spot to be in! I want to be within 10 lbs of Onederland, but I need to get out of here first. I don't recall there being a ton of 2-teeners, but I'll give this thread life anyway. Maybe all the people from the 220s Challenge will flock here when they've made it out of there. :P

I'm in!

I'm in- I think I am officially out of the 220's. I have weighed in at 219.00 for 2 days now! WAHOOOO! Come on onderland!

Uugh. I have been 216-215 for two weeks now. I want to keep moving down.

I do strength training :lifter: 2-3x a week, a combination of strength and cardio :exercise: 4-5x and martial arts at least 1x a week.
I try to eat between 1500 and 1600 calories a day, but I often stop around 1300-1400.

I know I need to eat more fruits and veggies, but I am so frustrated with being stuck here.

But forward motion for all. I can't wait til spring actually arrives and I can get back into the pool.

Well, ladies, I am stuck, stuck, stuck, and UBER frustrated. It's been a tough week for me-- I've been sick, had to work back to back twelve hour shifts sick, and I have a HUGE project due for my "other" job.

My weight has been stuck at 218 since the beginning of March-- I finally saw a change, down to 214, about a week ago, it stayed there for about 4 days, then, for some reason that I have NO IDEA... it bounced back up to 218 where it has been stuck. I have not exercised since Thursday since sick, but I have been totally staying on plan with no slip ups--. I'm positive this must be some kind of weird temporary water weight thing, but it is still frustrating to see 218 day after day....I can not think of one single food or sodium related reason to have gained. Unless being sick and stress can make you gain...?

Now that I'm feeling a little better, I'm going back to exercise and praying that I'll shed the pounds. UGH.

uber -

my numbers a little different but I had similar thing - got down to 225.4 on the 13th, then went all the way up to 229.4 by the 15th which I think is from being sick (had a cold and bad cough and a fever) and I managed to get back down to 225.4 this past Saturday only to go back up to 226.4 on Sunday and 226.2 today. I've also skipped exercising (not being able breath makes it tough!) but been on plan for calories although more grains and starches than usual but still within my target.

Here's hoping we both feel better and get back into normal routines and exercise and start seeing forward progress!!

Thanks...! That makes me feel better.

I had to work these long back to back shifts sick and I didn't even have any appetite-- threw away half my breakfast, only had plain broth for lunch...didn't even hit my calorie allotment-- get on the scale this morning: 218.

I am positive I didn't go over my calorie allotment a single day since the first of March. The only plus is that my body fat % seems to be edging down-- although it's hard to tell since it fluctuates too.

This doesn't happen often but this morning I weighed 218.00 and when I got on the scale before bed I was 217.4 Heck Yes. Really hoping I breeze through the teens. The twenty's were pretty easy and the 30's were hard. Can't wait till I am only 10lbs or less from onderland.

ubergirl
03-25-2010, 10:20 AM
I'm am totally plateau'd... I've been bouncing between 215 and 218 for a month. Have been good with exercise, except for the 4 days I was sick, but I'm working on a huge project-- I think it's stress and too much chair time....

I'm trying to take the long view-- project has to be done within a few days, then I'm going to shake EVERYTHING UP.

My trainer says stress can play a major role in losing weight. That's one of the first things he told me when we started working together, that there is a chemical in our brains called cortisol. If we stress out our bodies release to much of this chemical and it can prevent you from losing weight. So he said try not to stress about things and take a yoga or pilates class. Another really important thing he said was to make sure you always aim for 8 hours of sleep, it effects cortisol too, he said try to get no more than 8, and not less than 8 because 8 is supposedly the magic number lol. So it probably is stress so don't stress over that lol, try to relax and think about how far you have come and take it easy and you should see the lbs come off again.

That's interesting Kayhm. I've totally been thinking that I'm plateau'd due to stress. I am UBER stressed right now-- it's unavoidable, I have something really big on my plate. That's why I decided to just stick with my eating plan and exercise and really not worry about the scale until I'm done, then start to shake stuff up again. That's the nice thing about having been at this for almost a year. I'm learning patience.

Heck yes! Join Us!!!!That is awesome! Doesn't if feel great to be in the teens. I don't know why it feels so different from the 20's, but getting in the teens was a huge mile stone for me. Congrats!

This is awesome! I love the motivation here! I had a baby 7 MONTHS AGO and I STILL can't get out of my maternity pants! I'm back to my usual shirts, but the mushroom top from my old jeans is ridiculous. I'm fluctuating between 210-211 right not and want to be 199 by April 1. Don't know if that's possible, but I just started this 4-5 days ago and have been doing great with sticking to it. I can't wait to follow y'all and watch the progress! Keep it up!!

I am so anxious to be a part of this group. I keep bouncing between 224-226 and it's killing me. Well, no, like ubergirl, I've been doing a bunch of back to back 12 hr shifts, at night, while my kids are on spring break so I'm guessing once they get back to school on monday and I can start getting normal sleep again, the weight will start heading south again. For me, sleep is a HUGE need for successful weight loss, otherwise my body never gets to reset itself and let go of some of the stuff its hanging on, never know when I may go without sleep again and it may need that extra fat storage ~eyeroll~

Kayhm0711
03-26-2010, 01:53 PM
Down to 215.0 this morning. Half way through the teens already! Come on 6 more lbs and I can say I have 10lbs until onderland.

Okay! No posts lately?? What's up fellow TEEN-ERS? I can barely say I am even in the teens...the number 219 is there and then it goes up to 222. Of course I have been obsessed with the scale lately. I have been stepping on it, it seems, ALL THE TIME! What to do? What to do? I know what I need to do. the question is...will I? Stay tuned for more TEEN Drama! :D

ubergirl
03-31-2010, 02:35 PM
Hi Teeners--

I've been kind of slack about posting. This month as been the worst/weirdest ever, but I'm trying just not to think about it and solider on.

Started the month at 218.4... stuck, stuck, then finally whooshed down to 214. Stayed there for 4 days and then bounced back to 218, then bounced up to 220-- now mind you, I had NOT been eating off plan. The only difference is that I really kicked up my exercise, and that I was sick for about a week.

Then about four days ago-- my water weight went through the roof. (I have a scale the measured body fat% and water weight along with regular weight..., also my legs were puffy.) I was trying to figure out why the water weight, and I figured it out. Ibuprofen. Turns out, it makes some people retain water big time. Meanwhile--my weight stayed at 218.

Then, last three days, weight dropped back down. This morning I was back to 214.

But here's the kicker!

At the beginning of the month my body fat percentage was 45%. Now it has dropped to 41%

So, I guess I've been building muscle all month and I still ended up with a net loss this month of 4 pounds, which is on target for me. But sheesh!

03-31-2010, 09:16 PM
I am a 2teener, also. I am so, so wanting to get out! My next mini goal is 214. Since, I do 5 pound mini goals...once I reach 214, then my next mini goal is 209!!

Let's go!!!!!

Hi ladies I have just made it to onderland, but would like to say I totally understand how you feel. I was stuck between 215-210 for 3 months and was totally getting frustrated.
I finally gave my body a kick start by changing up excersise routine and by cutting out cream and sugar in my coffee and almost all refined sugars.
That finally got me past that hump and it happened within 3 weeks time. So keep at it and good luck....

Hey Lookingtobehealthy! Thanks for stopping by!

You gave me just the right message-- the last "freebie" thing in my weight loss plan is the whole milk I pour in my coffee every morning-- it is not much--but I've been thinking it's time to ditch it. I'm happy to see it made a difference for you.

Slowly slowly slowly losing weight.

My final weigh in of the month had me back down to 214.2, so that is my new ticker.

Chugging through the 200-teens. :running:

ubergirl
04-02-2010, 10:37 AM
Ok TEENERS! It's APRIL and I FINALLY lost a pound. Maybe it has something to do that I ran for the last 5 days straight!

By the end of April IF NOT BEFORE I'm going to see three numbers on the scale and the MIDDLE ONE IS GOING TO BE ZERO!!!

Who is WITH ME????

04-02-2010, 12:44 PM
Eight days ago I posted that I finally made 219.4. For the past eight days the scale has been all over the place. Up to 223 and down. This morning it said 219.0! Yesterday I also started to write down the daily weigh-ins. I can't remember what the scale said from day to day...so we will see!

Cathydoe! Welcome to the teens! I have enjoyed my stay here about as much as I've enjoyed my children's journey through the teens, LOL!!

Bouncing totally sucks!!! But getting to the teens is awesome. Second only to GETTING OUT OF THEM!

I'm am totally plateau'd... I've been bouncing between 215 and 218 for a month.

Hi Ubergirl -- I have been bouncing in EXACTLY this same range as you ... 215, 217, 218, 216, 217 lalalalalala. I have been doing everything correctly, exercising, eating right, not too much, not too little. I have a GoWear Fit which measures my calorie expenditure and I should be losing two pounds a week. It is uber-frustrating, LOL.

Anyway, I just keep going. You can't fail if you don't quit. But I do wish I had the magic secret. I was stuck in the 230's but the 220's seemed to melt off. Now here I am stuck in the 2-teens.

ubergirl
04-02-2010, 09:12 PM
Ladies, we are going to stop bouncing UP and start bouncing DOWN this month. I just feel it!

04-05-2010, 11:38 AM
Hi Lynn-- welcome to the teens-- may your stay here be short!

I'm down to 213.2 this morning-- really thought I was going to maybe see 212... feeling good!

cathydoe
04-06-2010, 10:48 AM
The scale has been bouncing between 219 and 221 for weeks now. Yesterday I posted in the 220's thread because I thought it was going all the way up to 223 BUT April 1 I started writing it down...and it wasn't as high as I thought <yeah> And TODAY the scale said 218! HOOT! I am getting farther away from the 220's - and that makes me happy!

04-06-2010, 11:01 AM
Way to Go, Cathy!
And everyone who is here. We can, and we will, do this!

I spent all of March bouncing around in the upper 2teens and this week I got to see 214, 213 and this morning 212.8!!!!

Sometimes it just takes patience and persistence! (One of the best things I ever learned from a video game character.:D)

:carrot::carrot::carrot::carrot:DITTO DITTO DITTO:carrot::carrot::carrot:

Knobhdy, we are weight loss twins. I weighed in at 212.4 this morning!

And the funniest thing is that after spending all last month worrying that I was eating too much, I've just been kind of stumbling along following my plan as usual and it just started working again!

Let's ditch these teens quick! And to those of you who just entered-- WOO-HOO!!!

CJZee
04-07-2010, 08:57 AM

04-08-2010, 12:01 PM
ok, 212.2 this morning, and I "know" this sounds silly, but it was after my shower, and my hair holds a few ounces of water (maybe I weigh too often, but I'm a weighing expert)

I think I'm going to get to 211 soon!

Lyn2007
04-08-2010, 12:06 PM

I am still 218 this morning which makes me happy. I can handle being 218 for a couple of days. LOL.

I saw 211 over the weekend. I was pretty dehydrated cause I spent the weekend camping, so I know it isn't real, but it was a great number to see on the scale.

I have been in the 200-teens for about a month and a half; I have been losing really slowly. But it is going away so I am happy.

Lyn2007
04-12-2010, 11:18 AM
Wow, 211 is an awesome number to see! It'll be "real" soon enough :)

I am down a pound to 216 this morning! So excited.

calluna
04-12-2010, 11:36 AM

Hello 200-teens!!!! I'm so glad I'm here...but ready to get out! 219.0 today...thought it was going to be more with the busy weekend at the lakehouse getting it ready for Memorial Day and all the summer festivities...hoping the rest of my hard work shows this week!

Well, I've spent almost two full months in the teens, so at that rate, I won't be at 201 any time soon. But you never know...

211 and holding steady. I really think I'm going to bust out of these teens soon!

217.2 today...I decided to include the .2 on my ticker. Lately there has been quite a few face shots on 3FC (or so I noticed) so last night I looked in the mirror at my face. Could the double chin be gone? Of course I tried to make myself have a double chin. I will always have this waddle thing with my chin... it is a family trait :D So stay tuned...I may do a face shot thing on 3FC.

The reason why I want to do this is because I have been feeling like I am not loosing weight as fast I would like...does it matter that I am fitting into smaller clothes (NO) Does it matter that people are noticing (NO) Does it matter that I can move more freely (NO) Does it matter that I can see the weight loss on my body (I noticed it this morning...so this one is a YES) The scale has been a slow snail...and unfortunately I have put most of my eggs in this basket...I have put my weight loss worth in the scale...

Sorry such a long post fellow 200-teeners...Have a great day everyone!

ubergirl

212 this morning. Drat. I have GOT to kick these teens butt.

I lifted yesterday and the day before, so that's probably why.

knobhdy

I saw 211 yesterday and 211.8 today. That's after recovering from the dehydration I inflicted upon my self last weekend.

(Seriously, I tried on a dress on Wednesday for an event on Saturday and it fit perfectly. On Saturday it was too big -- which would have been great except it was all I brought to wear!)

Hey Ubergirl...I will join you in headed to ONEDERLAND., A couple of days ago I weighed 211.6 and I have been kicking it hard in cycling and Zumba classes. I decided to weigh every 2 days so tomorrow is my weigh in day. Hopefully will be at least 210.

That's awesome! We're neck and neck!

Except, sigh, I just had an ultimately lousy day and will probably have a set back...

I can't WAIT to see 210 but I don't seem to be going about it in a very smart way...:?:

uber, if it makes you feel any better...my recent experiment probably set me back too.

I have no idea what the scale will say tomorrow. Drank a lot of water, wasn't hungry today AT ALL until dinner and had a good workout. But experiments like that definitely don't get you busting through the decade. :)

Well, I faithfully bounce EVERY weekend when I work two back to back 12 hour shifts.... water weight, or because I don't drink enough... who knows? So I bounced to 212 yesterday and back down to 211 today...

I didn't post a loss today. I could've - the scale read a pound down - but then it bounced right up and stayed there. I re-weighed, as I couldn't believe my eyes at the initial number. Guess I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, huh?

For whatever reason, I mostly don't post losses on Tues, Wed, and Thurs. Most they are Fri-Sun, and Monday may or may not include a loss. go figure...

Finally after like 2 or 3 weeks I have pushed past 210-211 and today I weighed in at 209.2. I really think it was because I got more sleep. I am a night owl and I stay up till 2-3AM every night and most nights I am up by 8AM with my 3 year old. Most nights I average 5-6 hours of sleep and I seem fine on it, but whenever I get more sleep like last night the lbs seem to drop. And my trainer is always telling me it very important to get atleast 8 hrs, which I NEVER get. Last night I got 10 hours lol, the hubby got up with our daughter cuz he doesn't have to work and let me sleep in!!!!

I saw 209.2 yesterday morning two days in a row, then dropped a little bit this morning. I really need to stay away from the diet pop. I've been drinking a lot lately and It's probably the reason I have slowed down with all the sodium and carbonation. They say it's really not any healthier. I just need to stick with water though, it cleans your system out.

It seems to be a positive contributing factor, because I was at 213.0 this morning. I was sort of surprised, actually. Last night I kept the weight moderate and increased reps; I'm a bit sore today and thought for sure I'd be up a bit with the soreness. You just can't predict ...

April is almost over. I did loose weight this month. Not as much as I would like. 2 pounds. Was I OP all month NO. Progress not perfection. I get caught up in the perfection!! April I weighed in everyday and wrote it down. Not sure if that was a good thing or bad thing. Evaluation time. It is a mixed bag...I gotta figure out what it does for me.

04-30-2010, 12:29 PM
it will be interesting to see what you come up with, cathy.

As for me, I think I'm kinda in a rut. It's not bad, necessarily, but I am going to look for a couple of ways to shake things up for myself.

Ate pizza last night - it was a good choice: two slices of white pizza with olive oil, fresh tomatoes, and basil, but even with a good choice I can feel the restaurant sodium bloat. Blech.

Down a smidge to 212.8...TOM is about here, so I don't expect much for the next week or so, but I must admit that I'm awfully glad to be off 213. 213 and 214 have been challenging pounds, for whatever reason.

Lyn2007

Congrats on the move down, calluna! I know how a number gets stuck in your craw. I was so sick of 212 after a week.

You can do it, Beverlyjoy! Hope I can chase you right into the 00's!

I have decided to kick things up this week in an attempt to get out of the 2-teens. My exercise has consisted of walking 30 min twice a week and strength training 15 min twice a week. I'm going to strat biking again 30 min/day on the days I don't walk, with one day off per week.

I've been kinda scared to get back on the bike. Every time I rode (in the last 4 months or so) I ended up hurting myself, usually my foot was giving me problems. A hurt foot is awful and then I can't even walk much or anything for weeks til it heals. So I got some different shoes for the bike and I am going to give it a shot. Wish me luck!

Beverlyjoy
05-04-2010, 07:50 AM
It happenned this morning..... 208 !

Dare I breath - I don't want it to scoot back up. I am so, so grateful to see that number. Didn't lose when I weighed myself last week - but, my body finally let go of the weight.

Thanks for the support.

Everyone....soon you will also be on the onederland express. You CAN do it. I am cheering you on!

Still 210 today, but I swear the scale was a bit under 210 (I have a dial scale, not digital, but it's very accurate). I think I will be outta here within a couple of days.

I ate dinner out last night, and when I got home my son needed me and I did not get to bike. But it was important, so I will just hit the bike today for sure and count last night as my one day off per week from biking.

Well I am still here. I have been eating like an oinker :ink: for at least 2 months now. BUT truthfully at least I have been maintaining the 200-teens. The other bad news is I have had TOM for these 2 months and am scheduled for a hysterectomy on June 7th. I am probably the only one that has ever been excited about that because after the hysterectomy I won't have to take the DEPO shots (which I took to stop my TOM) and I hear the shots can make you gain weight...:) So I am thinking I will lose weight since I won't have to do the shots...oh my SICK mind. :eek:

So glad to see so many of you go :D wish I was with you...but I will... betting on the sooner than later.

Oh yeah, been doing the daily weigh in thread for the month of May and for the month of April...did it myself. Not sure if I see the great benefit in doing this daily weigh-in. Of course I am NOT participating in the chat...which I really believe the chatting by posting is where the benefit comes into play.

Keep loosing ladies and gents...you are an inspiration!

Big Hugs :hug:

hey cathy!

I haven't been posted here because I yoyo'd back into the 220s. I'm hoping that I'll have an end of TOM whoosh soon, and that I'll be back!

Sorry you've been having so many TOM issues, but I will say that I know a lot of women who were SO happy after their hysterectomy, and they finally felt great. So I can understand why you are looking forward to it.

Re: daily WIs, I don't think they make me lose weight, but they definitely keep me more accountable to myself and make me feel like I want to stay on plan and not thing, oh, it's fine, I don't have to WI for a week, I can get away with eating whatever right now. lol! But yeah, try chatting with us and see if that makes it any more helpful for you.
