:( Boo. Rules are rules, but I feel dumb! Question though- when I post my loss on Sunday do I post the total lost since my SW?

Happy for week 2! We are starting week 4 of C25K tonight, so I'm very excited, and a little teensy bit nervous. I'm ready to rock it though. In the meantime, homegirl has a makeover to attend! I'll post pics later, assuming it all turns out well.

Welp, another week is here and I'm not starting off too well. Laziness is trying to creep up on me. I have a yoga class this afternoon but I'm just don't feel like it today.

Time to enforce that willpower!

Really hope tomorrow is better.

Hey everyone! Excited for week 2. I was really motivated this morning after seeing that I actually lost a lb after my anniversary celebration and eating out 4 times. Not sure how I managed that, I'm assuming the "exercise" over the weekend helped.

Today: had 1780 calories for the day, drank 3 bottles of water, and walked at work + packed when I got home (moving in 3 weeks!)

Hope everyone has a great week!

Hello fellow Autumn Beauties! I wish you all luck with the upcoming week. Yesterday I experienced exercise euphoria and it continues on to today. I just feel so great!

Sibi - I hope you feel better tomorrow. Don't feel bad about missing a workout. :hug:

Pacsunmama - Congrats on starting a new week with C25K! That makeover sounds great!

KamsMoMa - How are you liking Turbo Fire?

mhill - Hope it went well for you.

MeliZ - Glad to hear today was great for you. Yay for not packing last minute! I usually fail with that.

I will be either bringing my scale with me to Nevada or using a freebie! ha ha. I'm leaving today for about a week to visit with family. Going to try EXTRA hard to stay totally OP and lose weight. Need to focus on drinking enough water because it's hot there!

Thanks SMS for the postage. We really appreciate it. :)

Thank you Meg for your kind words. Helps when you're feeling down.

Way to keep with that work out, Kams! I need your willpower right about now.

Good luck on vacation, Pac! Don't stress it too much and enjoy your week!

Uh, I was only down 3.2 lbs. Not that I don't love being called the biggest loser, but my starting was 258.4 and I weighed in at 255.2 this week.

Meliz - The weight you gave me when you signed up was higher than that so that is the weight I went by.

Today was a low energy day for me. Can't be high all the time... :lol: I had a headache and didn't manage to do as much as I wanted, but at least I met my minimum daily goal. Tomorrow is another day.

PacSunMama - Have fun in Arizona!

KamsMoMa - Turbo Fire sounds great. You doing HIIT has got me very insterested in starting it myself. Do you use an interval timer? How do you time your intervals?

According to our weigh-in thread, as a team we've lost 45.1 lbs or 1.81% of our total weight! Yay!

Huh, weird. I had asked you what my original SW was and you had told me 258.4 in the rules thread. So thats what I went from.

@mega-When I do HIIT on the treadmill I usually warm up for 2mins @ 2.5 and then go from there. I actually use the timer on my treadmill.. What I do is I'll go as hard as I can @ 6.5mph for 30 to 40 secs and walk for a 1:10 @ 3.0mph or until my HR drops down to about 150 and then I will repeat to raise HR into my fat burning zone which is 180-185 for me. I will repeat this for 10 reps and then walk @ 3.0-3.5 for the remainder 5 min. I suggest using a HR monitor especially if you start HIIT training.

My goal is to be able to do 1 min on(intense training) & 1 min off(rest)...The plus to this type of training is that you only need it 3 days a week for no more than 15-20 min if you do it correctly..

Sibi

Check in time!

Not much to really say. Looks like I might be getting a new job involving more money so that's exciting. I'll have to wait and see. I wouldn't start until October anyways. I'd have every weekend off though which would be absolutely awsome.

Staying on plan today. Woo!

Hi all! Still alive here sorry I haven't posted in a few days! I had a great day out of town yesterday with my family but went WAY over my calories with eating out and snacking. Oh well today was a new day. Ready to go back on track. Today I did an hour at the gym already and am hoping to do at least a 30 minute walk tonight and maybe some Pilates as well. Going to have to weigh in Saturday instead of Sunday as I'm going out of town again for a few days to a family reunion. Hope all is well with everyone!

Sibi

Just finished a 2.2 mile walk. Woo! I can't seem to make better time though. I'm going to cough it up to the humidity for right now (I live in FL).

My boyfriend and I were invited over to a couple of friends house yesterday for dinner and drinks so I can safely say I went over my calorie limit. However, I only had two slice of pizza when back in the day I could have easily gone for four or five so I consider that a huge improvement. I did, however, indulge in a bloody p**** shot (couldn't bring myself to type it out on these forums) and a couple of mojitos. Considering this was the first time I've gone off plan in over three weeks, i think I'm doing pretty well. The thing I was worrying about most was having difficulty getting back on today but no troubles whatsoever there. Woo!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day and sleeps well tonight.

Kams - You are inspirational with the exercise.

KamsMoMa
08-12-2011, 08:04 PM
@Sibi- Thanks hun :-).. There's nothing wrong with going off plan for a day.. Just as long as you make sure can get back on track with no problem... I'm pretty much a clean eater but I have my days.. My diet stays 95% clean all of the time. I do have my time when I may decide to eat whatever I just watch my portions...You'll be fine..

How are the rest of you girlies doing??

I took a rest day yesterday but back off to working hard today...I will be doing TF HIIT 15 & 15-20 min on treadmill...

I can't believe we are almost done with week 2 *yay*.. 2 more days til weigh-in ladies.. Let's work hard yall!!

mhill0823

I went for a super long walk this evening but other than that I've been too stressed to do anything these last few days!:(
Waiting to hear about my promotion and it's weighing on me hard!

PinkSnowDays
08-12-2011, 11:21 PM
Hey ladies! I'm going to be weighing in tomorrow morning as I'm headed out of town for a family reunion. Ugh so not looking forward to it.... I'm the heaviest weight I've been in years, the only cousin not married and with kids, I could go on... I LOVE my job and have worked for hard for it and at it... I just worry sometimes that this is it for me and it gets depressing.... ah well enough of that! Anywho I am back on track and have been hitting the gym hard the past few days since I know I'll be out of it for 2-3 days while I'm away... however my parents do have a pool so I'll be taking advantage of that and doing laps every night as well as still a mile walk with my dog! I went to dinner with a friend tonight and actually still was able to stay under my calories... I knew where we were going and looked up nutrition stuff ahead of time so I could make good choices... holy cow!! I can't believe how many calories are in most dishes... whew no wonder I got so overweight! :) Wishing everyone a good weigh in!

sibi - way to go on portion control! sometimes that can be the hardest part
Kams - whoo hoo keep it up! way to kick it back into gear
mhill - sending positive thoughts your way! good luck with the promotion!

08-12-2011, 11:37 PM
Thank you KamsMoma for sharing your HIIT routine. I really appreciate it.

mhill - Good luck with your promotion. Maybe do some yogic breathing to help you with the anxiety?

PinkSnowDays - I hope you have fun on your family reunion! :hug:

As for me, yesterday I took a rest. I did too much the day before and I was fatigued. Today I did 4 miles with WATP and feel great although I wanted to give up in the middle of it. I haven't peeked at the scale at all this week so I'm looking forward to Sunday morning to see how my weight is doing.

I hope everyone is doing well!

@pink-Enjoy your family reunion hun :)

@mega- no problem hun.. I had a cousin that lost a lot of weight doing that WATP..

Can't wait till Sunday :)

Sibi
08-13-2011, 05:21 PM
@mhill - I'm also sending positive thoughts your way. I hope you get it, lady!

@pink - Even though you might be uncomfortable, I do hope you enjoy it. Just think of it this way, you'll knock them off their feet next year after you've lost more weight! (I know this from personal experience as I went to my boyfriend's family reunion this past summer and felt like a blimp but it's all good as now I have next year to look forward to.)

Hope all you ladies are doing well today. Will be doing my walk later this evening so looking forward to that (a little bit anyways). Excited to hear how everyone did this week tomorrow.

On vacation in birthday cake city. My jerk family has managed to make me feel like crap all over again, on top of traveling alone with two small children... I'm so ready to go home. I actually weighed in Wednesday before I left and it was 203. I'm sure I gained since then although I've been continuing my c25k it's not enough.

Oh well. I go home Monday night. Can't wait.

Sibi
08-14-2011, 10:19 AM
@Pac - So sorry your family made you feel like crap. Just know your 3FC family is here to lift you up. And don't worry about a possible couple pounds gained. You'll lose it in no time!

Only a 1.2 lb loss for me this week. Kind of disappointed (as I aim for 2) but a loss is a loss. I'll cough it up to doing very little exercise compared to other weeks. TIME TO STEP IT UP, AM I RIGHT?!

Anywho, good luck to all my beauties.

Hello team. I am sorry to say that angeline has to leave the competition. Life happens and atm it has happened to her. :\ I will be both yours and the lovely leaves team captain for now. My question for you is: Is anyone willing to step up and be the team captain for autumn beauties?

KamsMoMa
08-14-2011, 07:03 PM
What are the responsibilities of the team captain?

MeliZ
08-14-2011, 08:19 PM
I wouldn't mind stepping up to being team captain, if it's mostly just making the threads every Sunday night, keeping track of weights, and being encouraging! I can handle all that. Or if someone else wants too, that's fine. I don't mind either way. I'm on here every Sunday night no matter what pretty much. It's Monday - Friday that I'm not usually home. But I try to always sign in every day since it's keeping me accountable.
On a different note, I made stir fry today with cut up steak, whole grain noodles, veggies, and some stir fry sauce that was only 15 calories per serving. It was super yummy. However, I somehow almost set our stove on fire. I saw flames! My husband came running out because I shrieked and pulled the pan off the stove burning myself slightly in the process. It turned out yummy though, and I didn't burn down the apartment complex, thank goodness.

Basically exactly what meliz said. I have a spreadsheet on google docs for the numbers to be imputed. I was doing the threads for both teams which I can continue to do no problem. The main duties of a team lead would be to imput the numbers on the spread sheet (has to be done monday, paying close attention to the last time the weigh in posts were edited to ensure the weigh was imputed by the deadline) and report to their team the biggest loser of the team for the week etc. Also encourage the team and keep track of freebies used. I will do the stats for both teams meaning figuring out the overall biggest loser and comparing results to figure out which team won for the week.

SMSDREAMER2007
08-14-2011, 10:50 PM
on a note of the biggest loser for week 1. Mhill, I owe you a huge apology. In imputing the numbers in the spreadsheet I accidentally gave another players starting weight to meliz which gave her a 5 lb loss and overall biggest loser. When in actuality is was you who was the biggest loser of week 1 ! I will edit the posts as needed CONGRATULATIONS and I am sooo sorry. Just goes to show what happens when I try to pull double duty :p

08-15-2011, 01:33 AM
Idk I think something may need to be recalculated... Ive only lost 7.2 the whole 2 weeks.

PacSunMama
08-15-2011, 02:33 AM
Sibi and mhill- what's with this "only" business?? You guys are doing great and your "only" losses will turn into a huge loss all together!

Thanks for helping run our team SMS! You've done awesome at keeping everything together.

Meli thanks for stepping up and volunteering!


And thanks again Sibi for the support and encouragement. I spent a wonderful day with my husband's family and basically told my dad that I am not participating in his "conversation." I will not tolerate being made fun of, watching my kid get bullied by his cousins and having my parenting choices criticized and joked about. It's not up for discussion, I'm a really good mom and that's all that matters to me, and screw anyone else. Lol.

Going home tomorrow and looking forward to getting my food back on track. I'm afraid to step on the scale but I think I did way better than I'm imagining. I think a full week of lots of water and protein and it will be okay!!

PacSunMama
08-15-2011, 02:34 AM
Oh and mhill- congrats on losing 45 pounds!!!! Saw your siggy- what awesome progress!!

Sibi
08-15-2011, 12:29 PM
Glad to hear you set things straight, Pac!

And grats to Mhill on both the biggest loser of last week and 45 lbs lost!

Last evening I did a 3.3 mile walk. I honestly think I lost every little bit of water weight I might have possibly had. Today is yoga day AND I WILL NOT SKIP IT (the chanting going on in my head)! After yoga I do plan on taking a walk though maybe not as hard pushed as yesterdays.

I'm getting soooo close to onelander that I can almost taste it so I'm really going to start pushing myself pretty hard. I'm going to be visiting my family for Thanksgiving (with the boyfriend in tow) and would absolutely love to be below 190. I suppose it's something of a mini goal. If I can hit 185 which is one of my big goals then I'll be absolutely ecstatic.

MeliZ
08-15-2011, 02:50 PM
I don't mind at all stepping up and being the team captain if everyone is okay with that. I use excel all day at work, I can easily work a spreadsheet for this.
I know I wasn't the biggest loser! heh. That's okay, it happens. ;)
