Congrats Everyone!!!

I'm honestly surprised I managed to lose over 2lbs last week! This week however has been different, since I started running my home scale doesn't want to budge. I know I'm eating enough because I consume all of my Activity Points since I'm burning between 1000/2000 calories per run/workout.

Looking forward to continuing on to the next 6 weeks as I'm hoping to reach goal by then. I've been struggling lately because I let the scale decide what mood I'm going to be in when I should focus on how fabulous I feel.

Hope everyone has an awesome week!!

Just curious but wouldn't CAPEBRETONCHICK be the Biggest Loser for the week? She lost more than me and had a larger percentage?!

Good morning everyone :)

Congratulations Kimberly for being our BL this week :cp:
Great job Mary, Jacky, CapeBretonChick for being the RU this week :cheer2:

I'm really hoping to lose at least 1.5 - 2 pounds this week as I have gained 1 pound for the past two weeks in a row. It would be nice to finish this part of the challenge under 200 pounds, but that would mean I would need to lose 4 pounds. Doubtful, but I have my fingers :crossed:

Kimberly, you are so close to your goal - awesome!!!!!

:cheer3: Let's have a great week everyone :cheer3:

Thankyou!! I've been getting frustrated lately because I want out of the 160's so bad and this week my scale keeps bouncing back and forth between 160/161. I've been working extremely hard, running everyday and I'm making sure I eat extra on the days I workout.

Hopefully when I come back to post again for the very last weigh in, I'll be either at or below goal!

Hi just popping in on my lunch break. Sun is shining so that's good

Kimberley the only reason Angela isn't the BL is because of no post for last week in the chat thread

:bravo:Kimberley, Mary, Bigmid, CapeBretonChick :cp::congrat:

I can't believe it's week 13 already! I was hoping to be in the 2teens by the 13th week weigh in, but it doesn't look like that will happen. I am pretty happy with how far I have gotten though.. These weekly weigh in's really help me stay focused :)

Just heading off to bed I'll be back tomorrow. I think the Red team won week 12 but I'll know for sure tomorrow....not on the computer right now and probably not until tomorrow night.

Congrats Kimberly,Mary, Jacky and Angela. When I grow up I want to be just like you!!!

Well, it seems to be true, working with weights is adding some weight,but I'm sore, so I'm doing well. I'm sticking with it and excited to see the changes in my body further on down the line.

Just so pleased that every week has showed a loss - can't ask for much more . . . well, I could ask but who'd listen?

Good luck Narnia on that 4 lb. loss;)

Where's Bobbi?

:wave: everyone
Well I don't know what is going on, but the scale has been all over the place. On Monday I weighed in at 202, and then this morning I'm up to 210. Logically, I know I didn't gain 8 pounds in two days, but it's really frustrating to see. I not going to let it be an excuse to comfort eat though, as I know that will just get me back to square one. On a positive note I had an excellant workout this morning and so far I have made good food choices.

Good luck Narnia on that 4 lb. loss
Thanks Dora :) I have no idea what to expect on Sunday, but I'm sure going to give it my all this week.
That's wonderful that you are enjoying lifting weights! I have been wondering about Bobbi as well, as she usually is a regular poster. Hope everything is ok.

Have a great day everyone!

I am ramping up my workouts this week to try and get past this plateau. I have decided I am going to do follow the P90X Doubles schedule for this week. Since next week is a recovery week (no weights, just cardio) I figured it would be a good time to see if I can maintain my energy levels. The doubles follows P90X's classic schedule but adds a Cardio X workout on the strength training days.

Today was my first doubles workout and two P90X workouts in one day is tough. I am shaking like crazy but I feel so good.

I went to visit my mom yesterday, it was the first time she has seen me since day 3 of P90x (12 days ago) and she was amazed at the change in my stomach and face in just 2 weeks of doing this program. So I can only imagine how I am going to look come day 90!

I have been posting daily on facebook when my workout for the day is done. I have found that this is really holding me accountable. My facebook friends are people that I see from time to time, so if they don't see me post that I've done my P90X workout for the day, they will really give it to me! I don't want to let anybody down, especially myself.

I am amazed at the support my friends and family are giving me through this. It's that support and maybe just a little bit of my own ego ;), that will see me through the next 75 days!

Hi everyone,
Sorry for being MIA lately I've been so tired at night I'm not even turning on the computer. I had been good all week then yesterday was my Mom's birthday and we went out to eat (still in weekly points) but now all I want is junk food.
I worked out 6 days last week and only Mon, Tue so far this week. I know I will work out tomorrow as it's the first day of my running class but I feel like a slug as I didn't work out today and I can't see myself doing it when I get off work in an hour.....I won't sleep if I do.
Just feeling blah in general so I hope once the sun starts shining on a regular basis I will get out of this funk I am in.

Dora - good job with the weights they are great to do.

gvntofly - wow double PX workouts:) good for you

Narnia - don't worry about the scale it does really stupid stuff sometimes....hang in there. Good luck with the 4lbs

PageLynn - good job on being back down

Coco - don't worry you've one great and you'll be in the teens in no time

sandlll - the scale will move again:) keep strong

spryng - I dont think you will have to post every week but I'll let you all know for sure when I start that chat thread.

Kimberley - I hope you make your goal by the end that would feel awesome for you. I know what you mean about the scale effecting your mood it does that to me all the time.

Sorry if I missed anyone, a big hello to the rest of the blue team as well.

I can totally relate to this feeling . . . . it gets old. I'm back to that place again. I hope you (and I) feel better soon.

Sorry for the weight gain this week.I have lost my way I'm afraid.I can't put my finger on it,but a friend did suggest that it's my sister's 1 year anniversary for her death,so I might be acting out per se.I am going to renew my commitment to being healthy starting Monday.

Jackie,join me on getting back on track.:hug::hug:

Congratulations Kimberly for being our BL this week!
Great job Mary, Jacky, CapeBretonChick for being the RU this week!


I have just arrived home from an amazing week away! We flew up to Hamilton Is and then went to Club Med Lindeman Island for a week... it was beautiful! I am just so scared at jumping on the scales tomorrow... my weigh in day is Monday at WW. This week I am gonna take a Freebie. It was all inclusive meals, unlimited cocktails... I did limit myself to one cocktail a day and consumed only water at the other times. I made sure my plate was half vegetables... but when I got home last night I know my portion was out big time when I made myself dinner and got back to weighing everything. I walked everyday, went to aquarobics twice, played tennis every other day... I am hoping I won't have gained too much. My clothes arent tight soooo, but regardless today is a new day and I am committed to being lighter at the end of 2011. I am back to tracking, exercising hard and controlling my portions.

Can't wait for the purple group next week to keep me accountable!!! Yeah!!

PageLynn

Alright so I got on the scale after what felt like forever and.....185.6! YAY! Calorie counting is working great! Plus my new job (housekeeping for Marriott) has me very active for at least 8 hours a day. Unfortunately right now I have not been doing my workouts but once I get used to being on my feet and so active during the day for an extended period, I'll add workouts back in.

Hi Everyone, I hope weigh ins go well this week. I am on a plateau but I'm changing up my food for this week so I'm hoping that makes a difference.

HI everyone, hope you all had a good week. I am still losing, but slowly! That's ok, as I am eating a lot healthier, with only a few treats... Hope everyone has a great week coming up! The weather is finally feeling a bit warmer (into the 60's) here in New England.

I know this thread will close soon, but what do you do to reward yourself? Can we share some ideas that are not food related and budget friendly...

Bigmid

Hi everyone I'm at work today so totals may be a little late.

Don't forget you have 2hrs left til WI cutoff

Bigmid
04-10-2011, 09:14 PM
Kris - I agree we need to lift our spirits somehow. The sun has been shining for a couple days now and it has made a bit of difference. So I hope we are both funk free soon:)

Liz - Hello!!!!!!!!!:) how have you been.

Vanessa - your trip sounds wonderful and you can't have done to bad if you clothes aren't even tight.
I like to reward myself with trips, goal is getting me a tropical vacation.

PageLynn - Congrats!!!!!! You won't need to add to much exercise in as you job is a tough one and should keep you fit on it's own

River - good luck with WI

sandlll - slow and steady is good and everyone still needs a treat now and then.

Don't forget after tonight we go to purple team.

Bigmid

Okay Blue Team that's it now for about 6 weeks:

We had a lot of gains this week (must be something we ate)....LOL

I think the Red team had mostly losses so I believe they will win this WI but that just means we have our secret weapon on no WI til May 22 when we come back and show them which team will win this challange.............GO BLUE.....WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I will leave this thread open for a day or two for you then everyone needs to head over to the purple team thread to do your chatting and logging.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR BIGGEST LOSERS THIS WEEK:

Biggest Loser:
PageLynn, -2.4, -1.28%

Honorable Mentions:
CapeBretonChick, -3lbs, -1.43%
CocoLoco, -2.2lbs, -.97%
sandlll, -.8lbs, -.48%

Team Loss of 3.7lbs, .10%

WTG everyone this has been a great challange with many of you close to your goals so that is awesome.

Now if only I could get close to mine. What is your goal for the 6 week WI
mine is to be in the 160's again but that is pushing it for 6 weeks. (I haven't even lost that much in the 13 weeks this time):(

Well see you on the purple side

Bigmid
04-11-2011, 12:37 AM
Liz - that could be the reason as our minds always remember and trigger actions even before we relize why ourselves:hug::hug:

I am so back on track with you. I hope to be in the low 170 or high 160's by the final WI.

I started running again a few weeks ago.....go off track last week (only put on .4 which is amazing for me) and joined a running group with first class on Friday and I even got up to run the free run this morning at 8:30 before I went to work:carrot::carrot:

Let's show them what were made of Liz......we will succeed.:D

Congratulations PageLynn on being this week's biggest loser, and congratulations to all the others who lost this week.

My goal for the next six weeks is to get to my 10% off WW goal... I managed my 5% in the NYNY challenge I weigh in one hour's time so I will know how many kgs I will have to lose to get to that - I think it is roughly 6kgs. That will make me enormously happy!!!
