I am so confused! I think I found my team thread again. For this week. Right? Whaaa! Congrats KittyKat - GREAT work!

Well - I did super crappy the first week of this challenge, but looking at the bigger picture I did great. LOL. I lost a lot last month, and then I went 'totally' off plan the past week but I didn't gain. Well, I thought I did when I weighed in the other day - but turns out it was leftover water weight. So... now I am finally starting on joining you gals in some serious work! ;)

Just went to the gym, felt great. And later tonight I'm going for my c25k run. And I am done with eating off plan foods again also. The petit fours I had this afternoon made me feel so sick, and my tummy is not liking them. My body is teaching me a lesson I think.

Keep up the work, and hope to follow the chat more actively now that I am not feeling so guilty and just wanna hide. lol.

Haven't been here in a few days had a lot of things going on and missed first weigh in... does this mean I'm out or can I still get back on track this week??

DivineFidelity
08-08-2011, 03:48 PM
my understanding is that you can miss 2 weigh ins, but that if you miss a 3rd you are no longer an official member of the team.

i've got another question!

what kind of exercises do you ladies do? Right now I don't have access to a gym or pool, and I have very little room around my house. I do own a stability ball but I don't know any good exercises. I want to work on building muscle, but I have no clue where to start. Some suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

SMSDREAMER2007
08-08-2011, 04:16 PM
Divine is correct. You can miss 2 weigh ins. Miss a 3rd and you are made an unofficial member Meaning I will count your weight etc but your total will not go towards the team total and you will not be eligible to be the 20 somethings falling into fall challenge biggest loser.

Divine- I did push ups, crunches etc every once in a while I'd go for 6 mile walks etc..but I didnt exercise very often with the first 60 lbs lost. I started this past weekend doing JM 30DS it really doesn't take a lot of stuff/room just the video and 2 hand weights (Originally I used soup cans as weights) are needed and a bit of floor space.) I also bike ride. If you have stairs then running up and down those about 5 or 6 times is a GREAT workout. I know some people on the forum like to shadowbox, Some swim, bike, walk, calisthenics. I am like you I don't have access to a gym or a pool worth mentioning(I can swim for an hr in the one we have but its more like water aerobics and pool pushups LOL) I would say calisthenics are your answer they are GREAT for building muscle. Lift your bed up a few times as a weight or the couch.....pick up your coffee table over your head 10 times or so (its really not easy) when calisthenics get too hard. Grab a chair and do step ups(I really like those). I like to get creative. Hopefully some of those suggestions will help ;)

I went to the gym for 40mins cardio and 15mins 'core' stuff (crunches, pushups - I suck big time!) and then I just went for my c25k w1d3 run. Even though it's raining here. And late at night. Hihi. I can honestly say I am back on track! Yay!

Oh darn. I always forget about Sunday weigh-ins for challenges since it is my habit to do it on Mondays. I'll remember it next week! And maybe it's a good thing since my terrible weigh-in won't drag down the team :)

So I had a hard time this evening. I got home from work and I couldn't get the idea of a cheeseburger and fries out of my head. I managed to resist fast food, and I didn't go out and get anything....but I ended up cooking 2 small potato skins (from scratch, with fat free cheese) and some tyson chicken nuggets that I had in the back of my freezer. Not exactly super healthy, but it got rid of my craving and it wasn't fast food...so I guess that's something positive.

08-08-2011, 11:38 PM
I also couldn't weigh in until this am, as I was out of town. But hey, I somehow gained 6 pounds in 2 days (vacation food?!?) and I think you will all be glad to not have THAT counted in your results! I am sure its a fluke, but we shall see over the next few days if it goes back down. Wowzers, I know I didn't eat 20,000 calories over my allowed. It would take a lot to gain 6 pounds in a weekend. Must of been A LOT OF SALT in whatever I ate. Pray that it goes away, lol!

Well, I'm up 1.2 pounds since yesterday, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's water weight...because I had a lot of sodium yesterday. Either way, I'm sticking entirely to plan today (no giving in to cravings, even a little bit) because I'm going to have to learn to avoid those foods that make me gain weight...

Today I'll be at work until around six and then I'm coming home to finish cleaning my room and then to go start a 7 day trial at a local gym! I'm thinking about getting a membership, its just so expensive. There are cheaper places, but they don't have swimming pools, and I really need the pool for the low impact exercise. Also, this particular gym has classes that fit into my schedule Monday-Friday (working from 8am until 6pm Monday-Friday with an hour commute each way just kind of sucks) as well as on weekends too, and the cheaper gym's classes start at 8am and end at 7pm, and they don't offer them on weekends.

I think the main deciding factor will be if my boyfriend's mom agrees to pay for a membership for him. If I don't have to pay for two memberships, then I can afford $30 or $40 a month. If I have to pay for two, we will absolutely have to go to the cheaper gym because that's something I CANNOT afford. I just wish I lived in an apartment complex with it's own little gym =/

I only drank a little over half of the water I'm supposed to drink daily yesterday. I WILL do better today. I WILL drink it all! I haven't managed it yet, but I think today will be the day. =D

Good Morning, Ladies!

I am down this morning to 251.9 (a .9 loss from weight in but a loss is a loss so I will take it!) so hopefully I will be moving even lower soon. I have to keep reminding myself that this is a competition for my motivation!

@Divine: I work out 3 days a week currently. M/W I do morning cardio for an hour. Th evenings I do 30 cardio, 60 strength, 60 yoga. I am hoping to add time to that come Sept but I want to stick to one routine for a month before I add or subtract any time. Awesome! I know people who use 7 day trials at gyms all the time. I think someone even went a whole year using those at different gyms. I understand the working situation with an hour commute, it is why I have to leave my house at 5 am to hit the gym. It sucks but will be worth it!

I had a question I was going to throw out to everyone but I completely forget what it was, dang it!

There are a lot of good bodyweight exercises. Swiss ball crunches (with or without your arms extended over your head w/a weight), body weight squats, or wall squats w/the swiss ball behind you. Push-ups. Step-ups (I use my coffee table). Planks. Lunges (I will forever hate lunges.), Iron Gym pull-up bars are about $30, and those are good for chin-ups, pull-ups, and negative chin/pull-ups, and they don't require any kind of permanent installation.

08-09-2011, 11:29 PM
Well, I absolutely LOVED LA Fitness, and am seriously considering a membership for both myself and my boyfriend. To start it all up, it would be something around $180, but then it would be something like $65 a month after tax (for the two of us combined)...which I know I can handle. I think it would definitely be worth it, especially because I swam laps in the pool for over an hour, it didn't feel like a work out at all, but now my legs are burning and my arms are sore, so obviously it did something! I'm super excited!! =D

@Brown - those are all great ideas! Thanks so much.

@ruby - I had completely forgotten about sparkpeople! I used to go there all the time to look up exercises. That work out looks really good, I'll have to try it.

@Kitty - I'm so so sorry! I know you must be feeling awful, but just think about how much more awful you would feel if you binged or anything. I'm sure a lot of things seem out of your control right now, but you CAN control what you eat! Maybe sticking to your plan even though you're going through some really crappy stuff will give you something positive to focus on? If you need to talk to anyone, even just to vent, feel free to PM me.

philana
08-10-2011, 01:12 AM
Kitty - oh gosh, that is hard! I wish you lots of strength! just like DF said, just please remember you would feel even worse if you binged. However - if you have to, then just try and make not so horrible choices and be prepared to get back on the wagon when things settle down again. Best of luck to you!

--

I am really back on track again, and I see the scale wanting to be at 141lbs, I see the little pointer creeping that way. It's gonna be tomorrow or the day after. So looking forward to that, it really pushes me back into what I feel is a more acceptable weight range again. I don't know how I am gonna survive without a scale for a week in France. Oh well, just gonna bring my tape measure and make good choices.

I'm down 1 pound this morning, heading closer and closer to that 175 lb mark which is when I take a picture of myself to see if I'm progressing since I started.

Got my 10k race on Sunday, need to catch up on training the next 3 days off I had, because I lost track of exercise because of work + socialising since Sunday. Getting back on it and pushing it to the limit!!

@Kitty: I am so sorry, this must be a difficult time for you to be resisting food but be strong and it will pay off! You will have a new body to celebrate the new direction you life has taken. You know we are here for you if you need the support.

@Divine: go for it! Your health is important and if you will use the membership they are completely worth it.

So I am having an absoutly horrible week so far at work. Things just keep going wrong and I keep waiting for the a new anvil to drop on my head from somewhere. :halfempty Despite that, I am staying pretty well OP. I even made it to the gym this morning when I wanted to do nothing but crawl back into bed. Granted I didn't get the best workout in but I did something. Is it Friday yet?

Okay....I was doing REALLY well today....I feel more energetic and stuff, and I have ALREADY had 64 oz of water....but then I got sent home from work early. It threw me all out of whack. I didn't get to eat my 3rd small meal at 3pm like i'm supposed to...I was in the car driving home. I kept thinking about Whataburger and how much I wanted a greasy cheeseburger. I managed to resist, but then I came home and binged. I probably should have just gone with the Whataburger because I'm pretty sure I've eaten more calories then that would have been. I ate like a 3rd of a tub of cookie dough, i heated up some chicken nuggets and tater tots and had tons of that....I had a chocolate chip muffin that my sister had made....and I drank a diet coke (which isn't so bad, but I was trying to stay away from soda)....

I'm still going to get up and go to the gym and swim laps in a little bit, even though I feel sick from all of the food I just devoured. I just don't know how to control this. I don't think anything triggered it, except for being thrown off of schedule and trying to ignore a craving. It's just so frustrating! I was doing so well. I feel ashamed, and I feel like i've let all of you down. I don't want to gain weight this week....I WANT to lose weight and to feel healthy. I just don't know if I know how....

We moved a month ago, and now we're finally settled enough to have just joined a gym on Monday. So, I'm making better choices and getting back on track (and feeling really good -- I always feel great when I'm weightlifting), but I'm pretty sure with all the inflammation and muscle soreness, it probably won't look pretty on the scale. :( Hopefully I'll play catch up over the next couple weeks.

08-11-2011, 01:58 PM
SMS- you're right. I still got up and went to the gym, and I did finish all my water yesterday....so that's two things I did right. I just need to focus less on the negative and more on the positive so that I don't let little slip ups turn into 45 pounds gained back.

today, i'm doing alright I guess. I'm on plan except I had another chocolate chip muffin, but i'm going to go to the gym later and work it off....and it WAS really tiny and she made it with fat free milk and butter...so maybe it wasn't all that bad. I just had an awful chocolate craving. I need to go buy some more weight watchers fudgesicles. Those always helped with my sweet tooth before...

I figured out how to do crunches in the pool yesyerday! Omg i'm so excited. I have never been able to do crunches because I have a bad back and laying on hard surfaces is super uncomfortable...but in the pool it didn't even hurt! I got up to 100 of them...and I swear I could feel my core muscles engaged for the first time in my life. I always heard people talk about your core, but I never really understood until yesterday. I think i've found a new favorite exercise.

the trial membership will be over on the 15th...but that's okay. I am for sure going to get a membership...but I am going to wait until the beginning of september, after I get paid again and after they take out my gallbladder. I never knew how much fun exercising in a pool could be....and it doesn't hurt my feet (i've had 3 foot surgeries) and my back (i have sculliosis or however you spell it) or my knees or anything! YAY =)

today I will...
drink all my water
do at least 100 crunches in the pool
NOT get fast food.
do some cardio

Hey team! Sorry I've disappeared for a little bit. I'm finally on vacation for a few weeks but had quite a bit to do before leaving on Tuesday. I did pretty well on Tuesday but yesterday was pretty much a food orgy. Not very good. It wasn't that I sat down and just consumed a lot of food, I just grazed and grazed on fabulous food all evening, until it added up to like 3000+ calories! And I mean that without exaggeration. I actually toted it up. It's mortifying. Anyway today has been a lot better. It's a new day and I'm 100% on plan. Unfortunately I'm dreaming of some of yesterdays welcome party food. Thank goodness for this challenge right now because each time I'm tempted I just think of the challenge and not letting the side down. I brought my scale on holiday with me, however, I dare not yet check my weight till Sunday by which time hopefully the damage will be undone. I try to keep reminding myself that yesterday was only 1 day out of so many good ones and every minute is another opportunity to make good decision and change the past.

KittyKat: Sorry about your break up!!! :hug: :hug: Stay strong! Be kind to yourself. Now more than ever, you deserve to be happy and healthy so treat yourself right and don't undo all the progress you've made.

DF: yay about finding a gym you like. Swimming is supposed to be like the most efficient exercise because of all the water resistance and card and all that good stuff. I wish I were good in the water. All I can do is save myself from drowning, I generally suck otherwise. But one of the things I want to do is work on that at some point. I like your list of four major goals to accomplish in the day. I'll borrow that.

ETA: I've also read some not-so-conventional wisdom that we shouldn't be doing crunches anyway. That said, I do them (on a swiss ball.) Interesting, though.

If you haven't done cardio in a while but can't face the gym, then stick on some of your favourite songs and dance like it's 1999.

DivineFidelity
08-11-2011, 07:36 PM
Okay, so I'm not so sure how well my plan is working. I think that maybe my 4 small meals a day need to be smaller....and I think that I'm not understanding the true nutritional value of the foods i'm eating.

I think I need to start counting again, just for a while. I'm thinking about going back to the weight watchers points plus system or whatever. I've used the flex points before, so the new system should work too right? I wouldn't be paying for it, just doing it at home by myself....and that would help me get back into the groove. I'm going to finish off this week doing what I have been doing, and then when I get paid on Monday I'll be able to go to the grocery store and plan out meals with WW points in mind...and I think that will be a lot easier for me to stick to. This whole not counting thing...it's nice...and I HAVE been eating healthy food and drinking a lot more water....but I just keep eating too MUCH of the healthy food, and then the scale goes up and I get discouraged.

Anyways...I'll be off to the gym in just a little bit. I've got a couple of things to do first. =D

EDIT: I ended up not being able to go to the gym. My dad needed the car. Oh well, I probably needed a rest day anyways. I'll go again tomorrow! Oh, and I'm seriously fighting the urge to binge right now. I think I already ate too much today (although I'm not sure because I've purposefully been trying not to focus so much on counting calories meticulously)....and so binging would be very very very bad. It doesn't help that my little sister has all this cookie dough laying around....and she keeps making muffins...and cakes....and it just sits there on the counter calling my name. I'm trying SO HARD to resist...but I don't know if I can =/

hi girls!

I've not lost any weight the past few days, and I went to the gym only 2 times and ran 2 times in the past 5 days. However, it seems like my measurements, especially on my legs went down quite a bit. Is that even possible or did I screw up with measuring the last time?

DivineFidelity
08-12-2011, 08:34 AM
You could have been swollen or bloated the last time you measured philana....or something? idk for sure, it's just a guess. That or maybe you did it wrong. I don't know. Just be glad that you're measurements went down =D

I'm down to 243.2, and I plan on NOT going back up again. NO more cookie dough and NO more chocolate chip muffins. At least for a while ><

Divine - I must have screwed up yeh, though.. I also did them at night the last time, and today in the morning. That might make a difference? I really just want to tattoo the exact spot I use to circumference :p because I don't know for sure if I am doing it at the same place either. lol. Congrats on the loss! And yeh, NO MORE of that carby stuff :P. I am such a sucker for carbs, gonna try and do low-carbing for a bit here because my feeling of hunger is really much less when I eat less carbs and way more proteine.

DivineFidelity
08-12-2011, 02:00 PM
well so far i'm doing alright. One of the moms made me red velvet cake balls. She stood there and watched me eat one, and then I ended up eating one more with lunch, but I gave the other 8 away to a coworked. They were soooo good, but I know if I had kept them I would have eaten them all at once...so I gave them away. I think I can fit two into my calories today, so i'm just going to eat a little less for the rest of the day and hope that they don't hurt me too much.

i'm working in the baby room again today, and we just put them down for their nap. Once they were all asleep I filled up my 64oz water bottle and started doing bicept (sp?) curls with it. Now my arms are sore, but that's a good thing. Lol. In about an hour I get off work, and i'll go get my allergy shots, and then go home. I will go to the gym tonight...but i'm not sure when. I'm going to try and convince my boyfriend to go try the aqua fit class at 9:00am saturday with me. It should be fun I would think....but he's not the best swimmer and he's shy, so idk if he'll go...

EDIT: I did end up going to the gym....so that's good. I feel like I did accomplished a lot at the gym today...and I even did 200 pool crunches to make up for the 100 that i didn't get to do yesterday. lol. I think I did okay with what I was eating today, except I might have had a bit too much sodium and I might see some water retention from that. Hopefully though, it will go back down by Sunday. I'm not expecting a big loss this week, especially because I've been gaining and losing so much....but hopefully my weight will either be the same or be a loss. Next week though, I'm getting serious. I'm going to go back to meticulously tracking what I'm eating (this "just eat healthier" thing isn't working for me), and they'll actually be taking out one of my organs next Friday, so maybe that will make me weigh less? LOL.

It seems like everyone has been really busy. Hopefully we're all still on track to becoming the biggest losers! =D

YAY! Good news, I am back on track! So, 2 weeks ago I fell off the wagon a bit. Nothing major, but it just kept me stuck at 142/143 for 2 weeks. In the 3 weeks before that I had actually lost 13lbs! So guess it's good I got stuck for a tiny bit. Now that I am back on plan again for 2days, I already went down 1.5lbs! So if I keep this up I am pretty sure I can loose about 10lbs in the next few weeks :D

I always have such a hard time throwing away/giving away food cause I think it's a "waste", but really it's more of a waste going straight to my gut! taking out an organ, that doesn't sound fun. I hope everything goes smoothly for you.

So I've only lost 1 pound in the past 2 weeks, and I know it's not much but I'm proud of it. Just started full-time work and I'm not used to it, it would be sooo easy to give in and bring home pizza or whatever for dinner, go to burger king for lunch, but I've been faithfully cooking myself breakfast, making myself lunch and bringing it with me every day. To me that's a big step :D I just chopped up a load of fresh fruits and veggies to bring this week so hopefully I will lose another pound this week.

I weigh every day and my weight seems to go up 1 or 2 pounds during the week, and then when I weigh on sunday it's always about 2 pounds less than during the week. I can't figure out why, I actually eat healthier during the week than I do on the weekends. Maybe it's because I'm more active/running around doing chores vs sitting behind a desk? Who knows. I know I need to be more active but food has always been my biggest struggle so I'm focusing on that right now.

Yall are doing great! Seeing all your awesome weight loss reminds me not to give in to my cravings :)

Congrats Kitty!

I lost another pound this week and completed my first 10k run. I ranted about it in the 20 somethings forum if anyone wants to read up on my ramblings 8-)

Keep up the great work gals!

I'm up in weight this week. I'm not surprised though. The medicines that the doctors put me on earlier this week to help stop the gallbladder attacks until the surgery have been making me retain water like CRAZY. I swear my ankles are twice the size they usually are...and every part of me feels swollen. At least my gut doesn't hurt anymore though...

I may have gained this week, but there should be a huge loss next week...so hopefully that will make up for it. =/

Ugh, I had a horrible weekend :(
It was my boyfriends birthday this weekend and we went away to celebrate. Hotel, meals out, shopping... the whole nine yards. I knew it was a very slippery situation for me to partake in and sure enough I blew my diet out of the water. I ate C*@p all weekend and really didn't monitor anything. I basically just had one of those (@*$ it moments and took a nosedive with all diet and exercise. I'm just so disappointed with myself. I weighed myself this morning and it says up 2.2 pounds. I figure some of its water weight but still. I feel like such a loser :( :( Am I the only one who does these self sabatoge missions!?!?! Please tell me I'm not alone girls! I'm back at it today with diet and exercise and feel motivated so hopefully the scale starts moving down again soon :)

Hope everyone else had a great weekend!
