Well, I gained 1.5 lbs. Back @ 280. But I'm done now. No more.

I'm not sure what to post, cause as of Saturday, I had lost two more pounds, down to 228 for a total of 28 lbs. So glad to get out of the 230's..

but yesterday I ate like a pig. I"m not getting back on the scale now. Why torture myself. I'll just be good all week and weigh myself again on saturday.

Best of luck to everyone.

Can anyone join in here? I'd like to have a place to post my weekly weigh-in somewhere other than just my journal. I like the idea of being held accountable and giving a receiving all the wonderful encouragement that you ladies here at 3fc are so famous for.

Well here it goes... I weighed in at 205 lbs. this morning. That's down 6 lbs. from last week! I wrote about it in my journal too but just to explain the big loss I'll do it here too. About once a month (right before my TOM, who would have thought?) I usually experience a bigger than normal loss. Anywhere from 4-6 lbs. I'm not sure why it happens but I'm not about to start complaining now!

Anyway, that it for me. But if it's alright with everybody I'd like to start posting my weigh in results every week here.

Good luck everyone, I hope you're all big losers!! ;)

I'm up 2 lbs, not a surprise really considering how much chocolate I have eaten in the last week or 2. Also we've had take out I don't know how many times, at least 7 times in the past 2 weeks. So I think I'll be happy with a gain of only 2 lbs!

03-17-2003, 03:54 PM
115 lbs. lost--you rock! And a six lb. loss in one week is phenomenal.

I would love to read more about how you've done it, what keeps you motivated, why you started, etc., if that isn't too personal. I know it helps me to read about how others stay motivated. I've been having a little motivational crisis lately as have some others. So any tips greatly appreciated!

Last Weeks Weigh In = 253
This Weeks Weigh In = 250

That's a 3 lb loss....with a total of 24lbs gone forever.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

Sheila, you asked what keeps me motivated, so let me tell you a little about me.

My motivation comes from an overall desire to live a happy life. This isn't just about changing my body, its about changing my life. So I am making changes in every aspect of my life. I started on this journey around the end of August 2002. There wasn't any one thing that got me started, I just realized that it was time to do something about my life. So I started watching my portions, making healthier food choices, and walking at least 30 minutes every day. I have since added more exercise to my routine like lifting weights and ab work. I never told myself I couldn't have certain foods because that just makes me want them more. But the funny thing is, I just didn't want all that junk I was used to eating anymore. It is very calming to know that I could have it if I wanted but I didn't "need" it anymore. Now, don't get me wrong I still have cravings but I know that eating junk is not going to help me reach my goals. And reaching my goals is way more important than some old candy bar any day! I just try to remember that every pound I lose brings me one step closer to being able to fit on that roller coaster, buying clothes in regular department stores, not being stared at in a resturaunt, not feeling like I have to hide from the world, and knowing that I will be around to share all of life's joys with my little girl. I'm doing this for me, because I want to live and be truely happy. If you would like to read my journal please feel free. I'm listed as boiaby.

Thanks for letting me share a little, I'll post again soon.

I'm down 1 pound this week. For a total of 24.8 this year. Just .2 away from the coveted 25 lb. fridge magnet. Bummer. Oh well, there's always next week.

03-18-2003, 09:40 AM
gained 1/2 lb this week.

I have adjusted (once again) my April 1st goal.

03-18-2003, 03:16 PM
I've lost 1/2 a pound this week -- a happy suprise considering all I ate this weekend.

03-18-2003, 08:33 PM
Thanks to TOM I stayed the same: 196 lbs
Trying to not be bummed its about gaining muscle and new habits not my value according to the scale.

Sadly I can't join in the weekly weight in fun. I got an email from the company that I ordered the scale from, and they told me that the manufacturer has been delayed in releasing the new model and that it won't be shipped until mid May. So basically it will be another 2 months to know what my real weight is! Well, hopefully by then I will be wearing these size 46 short pants I bought for the summer.

BTW, I don't know if I mentioned that I am going to the Bahamas. If I did, I just found out that the trip got cancelled. I was supposed to go the weekend of April 4th, but the person I am going with has an emergency and won't be able to make it that weekend. We are going to reschedule for sometime later in April or May.

One word: Ugh.

I am down 3.5 this week. I had a gain last week, so I'm just losing some of that weight again. Down five pounds from when I started WW three weeks ago!

Congrats to everyone else on your losses, and to those of you who posted gains: good for you for owning up to it. That's the way to get back on track! (If I had hidden in the shadows last week with my three pound gain, I probably would have thrown in the towel).

03-19-2003, 08:35 PM
Well I am back to weighing in. I don't know if I gained or lost, it has been SO long since I stepped on a scale. I purchased one today (not going to the gym anymore)

But anyway, I weighed in today at 276lbs. It sucks, but not as bad as it could have been!


03-19-2003, 08:36 PM
I'm up by .25 lb. not much, but enough to kick me in the arse :)

I'm sooooo frustrated!

Last week I weighed 247.
This week I weighed 247.

I feel like I'm getting more exercise, I know dieting was hard last week (Purim is a Jewish holiday, like halloween... cookies everywhere) but this is depressing!

I joined Fitday.com today, so I'm going back to counting the calories. It seems to be the only thing that has been working!

03-19-2003, 11:54 PM
Jessica...at least you didn't gain.

03-20-2003, 12:01 AM
I stayed the same which is amazing considering my father in law went into the hospital monday and we have ate take out and fast food ever since. I am happy with a "stayed the same."

03-20-2003, 01:33 AM
Down 3 pounds this week ;)

03-20-2003, 10:21 AM
Gained a pound this week! Back into the 250's *sigh*

03-20-2003, 11:39 AM
I'm down to 200 today, but I'm holding my breath because I'm afraid its too good to be true. However, I did try on a skirt I haven't been able to fit since I worked for the Dept of Housing & Urban Development, and that must have been like 1998, and it fit!

so excited!

03-20-2003, 11:40 AM
I'm up this week. I don't get it, I keep on losing and gaining the same five pounds. I've been doing that for about 4 months, and for most of those, I wasn't even trying to loose. Now that I am trying, it is still just coming and going. Uggh.
This week: 212.5

Thanks Jennelle, that's so true and sometimes I forget that.

I weigh myself on Saturdays, and on my last weigh-in, I was down three pounds from the week before, to 167. I haven't been that weight in years, and to show how hard it is for me to get used to, I just realized that I had written it in my signature as 176! I have a feeling that wasn't 'permanent' though since I was sick last weekend, but we'll see in a couple of days.

03-21-2003, 03:25 PM
Well, dang, I am up 1 crummy pound. Didn't weigh last week, but I bet I would have been up more. Do I have to change my profile?? :-)

03-21-2003, 06:57 PM
big fat maintain. for me. which is ok cuz it's going to start going DOWN!

and i almost never change my profile unless i lose! hee. i'm at 218 now, but my profile says 215.

03-23-2003, 12:04 PM
Down 5 lbs. today. WOO-HOO!!! :cb:

My average daily calorie intake last week was 1574 calories. Knowing that most big losses are due mostly to a loss of water weight, I'm going to keep my daily intake target at 1600 calories. If I lose more than 2 lbs. next week, I will up it to 1700 cal/day.
