It is going to be a great week! I'll be restarting south beach phase 1 and doing the first week of c25k again, because I'm just not ready to move on quite yet.

Welcome to a new week everyone! :)

Haley: was that meant for me? Cos I'm Katy not Kim! haha :P

criseyde: glad to have you back! Did you get my PM about weigh-in? :)

I just got in from my first day of auditions for On The Town (I do Musical Theatre at uni and that's our term production). 2h of Body Conditioning in the morning plus the auditions in the afternoon...I'm absolutely knackered!

Hope you all had a good day! :)

I'm failing epically, as some of you may have noticed. The week right before we started, I had a pretty big loss. I figured it was dehydration. And I've had gains since then :( I started school and hadn't grocery shopped, so I guess 2 lbs isn't THAT bad. Anywho, I'm back on track. I did grocery shopping and cooking this weekend, so I'm hoping to report good news this week!! Sorry for being a shoddy teammate.

I'm so proud of myself...i have jumped back on the exercise wagon after 2 1/2 weeks of none at all....i did 45 mins on the treadmill yesterday afternoon and once i leave work this morning (night shift nurse) i will be heading to the walking trail...i'm soooooo hoping i will stick with my exercise routine non stop this time because i'm looking for those inches to drop not just the pounds!!!!

Hey Y'all. Sorry my ever busy life keeps me away at times. I'm still reading and hoping for the best for Y'all. I don't have any news right now, other than medi-fast food is a hit or miss. This chicken soup is awesome, this oatmeal on the other hand I'm forcing down.

Went on a bike at the gym yesterday, and I can really feel it today!! the sad part of this story is that I was only on the bike for 6 mins!!! I had walked for 30 mins, then thought "why not give it a try?" I think I will have to work into it slowly:(

elaine19

I have had a good time excercising this week, and today for the first time in 10yrs went on a bike!! Lasted 25 mins, and went 4.6miles... not to bad! Anyway, looking forward to hearing how your weeks were.

I've been distracted and unfocused the past few weeks from moving and school starting. I'm always good about exercising, it's food that I'm not always so good at. A combination of a bunch of events right around our move meant that I never did a big grocery shopping trip or got in the habit of cooking. Turned that right around last night. :) I made mini crustless quiches and some sort of chicken dish in my new crock pot. Here's to a week of not eating lots of crap -- now I have good food in the house!

Sorry sorry sorry sorry!!! I have been very AWOL this week. Bad teamleader! :( sorry sorry!!

Hope everyone remembered to post their WIs yesterday!!!!!!

haleygirl: mea culpa completely. I must have mis-calculated or mis-typed it!! I will sort that immediately. Really really sorry!

ade903: do no worry about it! I havent looked at the WIs yet so have no idea how you (or anyone else for that matter!) has done, but the important thing is you are back on track :) this competition is to get people motivated to lsoe weight, but sometimes life gets in the way (such as mine this week...) and all we can do is get back on track as soon as we can and forget about what we've done or not done before :) let us know how you're doing!

raznt: woohoo! go you! :D that is brilliant! must be hard having night shifts and still staying on the weight-loss-wagon, I know if I dont have a set day/night routine my eating goes out of control and no way is there any exercise going on so well done you! :) lets us know how it goes!

elaine19: well done for the biking! Nothing wrong with 6 minutes, 6 is more than 0 right? :) and 4.6 miles is really really good! Especially if it's from one day to the next! Keep it up and let us know how you're doing with it :)

Callahan: HA! Tell me about it...starting school again is the WORST moment for me as I'm letting myself have waaay too many treats with the excuse: "but I'm meeting with friends I haven't seen in months!" or "I'll only have one drink..." (which then turns to three...) Glad to see you're back on track though! :)

This week is Fresher's Week for me which means non-stop partying every night to welcome the new people and no lectures (which means no dance classes!) at all. So I've decided that I will not be drinking AT ALL this week. I will go out every night because I missed out on my own Fresher's last year due to being under-age (long story) and I really want to make up for it this year :) but no drinking. I will be sticking to diet coke or water (and still having fun!)

Oh and sorry for the gain guys! I went running on Friday but then went out on Saturday night for a friend's birthday, got very drunk and made a completely idiot of myself in front of this guy I like, so I really don't want to do that again...but I ended up having McDonalds yesterday as hangover food and then WI was (of course) bad...but I'm back on track again today so roll on next week! The BL Challenge Finale date is the night of my birthday party so want to be down to 146 for then! :)

Hope you've all had a good week!

hey all! my weigh in was bad but i anticipated that. i bought the WW 3 month journal and the new 2010 calculator and i used it all weekend and i still have flex left over! my mom, stepdad, daughter and i walked in a 5k yesterday for a local humane society and that was good exercise there were a lot of hills. i rejoined planet fitness, i start today. i have a school gym for free but i'm not motivated to go it's hard to mix school and working out for me, my gym bag is huge, it's a pain in the butt to get a locker for the day, and bottom line i'm not going to go lol so i'll pay $10 a month and i can't wait to go!!

Katy-sorry i didn't get my weigh in last night i will try to get it before i leave for school but i have a question for the % is it the last weigh in that we use for a base or the very first original weight

Haley: the percentage loss of last week's weightloss, NOT YOUR STARTING WEIGHT :)

Hey everyone, so glad you are all posting and supporting eachother! I love to come on here and know I am not alone:)
Anyway, I have made progress on the stationary bike, I did 30 mins and 30 miles, at a higher level! Was very proud of myself!!
Of course, I am still taking my Zumba classes and waorking the treadmill, so the excercise front is going well. hope everyone has a great weekend , see you on sunday for weigh-in;)

just wanted to say I am sorry about the weight gain! I was ill this week for two day with a migraine and then TOM arrived, and my eating went kind of crazy:( Anyway, I am back on plan and my next weigh-in should be great!! Hope everyone has an awesome week:)

But I am so ready for this week & going to be 100% on track!

Hey all! Sorry I've not been posting in this thread an awful lot. I have been quite busy recently, and have been trying to cut down on my internet usage!

elaine19 - Well done for your progress on the bike! Sounds like you're building up some great stamina. I find stationary biking really tiring, so I'm really impressed!

I started the C25K programme at the same time as this BL challenge, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it so far. I never thought I would actually enjoy getting up and running in the mornings! I've just completed the first day of Week 5 this morning. Wednesday's run marks half way through the programme - yay!

Wishing you all the very best for a successful week this week!

HEELLLOOO Everybody:) Hope you week was good!
tinycities, how is your C25K going? I wanted to try it, so let me know how it goes:)
See you all on sunday for weigh ins;)

YAY, only 2lbs and I am in the 180's!!!!!! So cool to see the pounds coming off, even if it's slow! this gives me great motivation for the next couple weeks!!! Hope you all have a great week:D

I apologise for the massive gain everyone :(
Also for having abandoned you all in the past fortnight. I've had a pretty busy time with uni and Freshers week and all, and I went completely off-plan for ages. Went food shopping this week though and am now fully stocked up with chicken and fish and vegetables and soup and porridge and yoghurts and have already started back :) Aiming for a 2lb loss for the final!

Really sad to see how many people have given up weighing in :( so many people have been considered out of the challenge lately! Don't forget that today is the last WI before the final.

Come on Team Hera, it's our last chance to pull ahead! :)

Hope you're all having a good weekend. And remember I'm rooting for all of you!

PS. Sign-ups for the next Challenge are already underway! You'll find the Page on the 20-Something BL Challenge forum page! :)

Hey all! Just checking in to see how you are all doing :) Sorry I've not been participating on 3FC much recently. I've been just popping on for 5 mins here and there, to read a few threads, post my weigh-ins and post progress on the C25K thread! It is sad a lot of people have dropped out of this challenge :( But I'm really happy that people are still here on Team Hera :)

eliane19 - C25k is going really well, thank you! :) All being well, I should finish Week 6 tomorrow, with a 25-minute run (eek!). I'd definitely recommend trying the programme if you haven't already, as I have found it really manageable, and for the most part (to my surprise!) actually really enjoyable!

I have a question - the final weigh in is this Sunday, but I am away all weekend (Friday to Sunday night) as my cousin is getting married. I'm really looking forward to it, but it means I won't be able to weigh as usual on Sunday morning. Would it be possible for me to post my final weigh-in early, on the Friday morning before I go? If that's allowed, that would be most convenient for me :)
