100 lb. Club - Weekly Weigh-in for 4/7 - 4/13
04-07-2003, 10:23 AM
I hope no one minds that I started this thread.....
I had a feeling this was going to happen, especially after the major loss I had last week. I gained 2 lbs. However I am in no way upset about it..it's only 2 lbs and I am sure I will lose it by next week.
LWWI = 245 lbs
TWWI = 247 lbs

I'm very happy to say I had a loss of 3 lbs. this week which puts me at 201 lbs. After maintaining last week I was really nervous that it would happen again, but it looks like things are back to normal now. Thank goodness!! I'm setting a goal that I want to be under 200 lbs. by next Monday. That would mean another 3 lb. loss to put me at 199 lbs. I know its alot to ask for but I'm going to work my tail off so hopefully it will pay off. Wish me luck everyone!

I am down 3.5 this week. Very exciting!!
YEAHHHHH Beverly and Karla!!!!!!! Hooray! Don't you feel great just saying it?
Keep trying KnCMamma!!! Yes, it takes the body time to adjust to a new size. It will come.
I can't believe this because I've been highly stressed this week, have been eating more sweets, and not really counting calories very carefully, but I've lost 2.5 pounds. You know, I can do a pretty good job for weeks and weeks and only lose a little bit (.5-1). Then all of a sudden, my body goes FWUMP and drops a couple of pounds at once -- just because it wants to. I've learned to just accept the pattern, which is pretty much a monthly one. Today is weigh-in day of my FWUMP week. Only 2.5 pounds to go to goal, so I can't have too many more FWUMPs. Hooray!!! I'm so happy I'm so close!! Must get some pictures developed!

You're doing so great and you're so close to goal!!! I'm so excited for you!!
It sounds like so far everyone has a lot to be happy about this week!
I'm going to weigh in this morning and I'm a little nervous. I'm so anxious to get below that 250 mark and I don't want to get discouraged if it doesn't happen.
Wish me luck!

288 last night @ my friend's (where I normally weigh) This is strange b/c just last week @ her house I was 300 again & too shamed to post it here. :( But I guess not so strange considering my week from ****.
04-08-2003, 10:16 AM
Your start weight is where I started. 250. Its great to have people all over these boards that can relate. I dream of getting to 199. Anything under 200 will be such a reward. What plan are you doing? I am doing WW right now with weight lifting and cardio. I would love to know your secret. Only 2.5 away from your goal. I am sure you are very excited. I am thrilled for you. Keep it up and motivating so many of us!!

I can't weigh myself this week!!!!!!!!
My scale was the gross casualty of TOILET OVERFLOW Sunday evening.
Can we all just say "ew!"?
Have to wait until Saturday to get a new one. Thinking of slurging and getting a nice one rather than the $5 one we already had...
Congrats to all for such great losses!
04-08-2003, 03:31 PM
Back down to 210.5. Keep on losing those same 4 pounds!
04-08-2003, 04:18 PM
Down three this week- that takes me to 250 exactly!!!
04-08-2003, 07:30 PM
I'm down 2.8 this week. So I'm down to 257.2.
04-08-2003, 07:56 PM
191 lbs. (getting nervous, could I cross the 190 mark!0
04-09-2003, 12:31 AM
I'm down 5 pounds...whoohoo, just what I needed after a gain last week... and that also made me the best loser of the week :)
04-09-2003, 10:37 AM
I can report a gain of about 4lbs. Sucks to be me!!
04-09-2003, 12:33 PM
Bella23, hang in there!! Maybe next weeks loss will be twice as good! Don't get discouraged!
04-09-2003, 02:39 PM

but i am REALLY happy about this pound because i have been up and down 3 pounds forever and i finaly lost a pound i hadn't lost before. i call it a virgin pound. :)

Oh my god, I am so excited today! I'm actually bouncing off the walls!!! I started TOM Friday so I checked my weight Sunday to get an idea of what it was after losing the water I had been retaining, it was 243. Today is weigh in day and I weigh 238!!!!!!!! Last wednesday I weighed 248, so about 5 lbs of that was water from PMS but another 5 disappeared too!! I am so excited I don't know what to do. After a month of only losing 3 lbs and working my butt off to do it to have lost like this in a week and I haven't even exercised for 3 days!!!!!!! OMG, I just don't know what to do with myself today, I just sit and grin!!
I had been doing low fat and not losing! I was only eating 1200 - 1400 cal/day. So I talked to my Dr. and her response was .... Girl I'm amazed you haven't gained, with a hypothyroid you shouldn't be doing low fat, you should be doing low carbs!!
OKKKKKKKKKKK, so I switched to a low carb on the April 2 but I was very skeptical because it went against everything I was always told. Now I don't know what to think but I'm sooooooooooo excited!!!!!!
04-09-2003, 10:39 PM
Way to go Elaine!!!
I am in a similier situation...
I am hypothyroid- but I took myself off my meds because I wasn't seeing ANY difference.
I started exercising (on a regular basis) about 6 weeks ago. I've been burning some good calories.
About 3 weeks ago I really started watching my calories... sure, not everyday is great, plus last weekend I went away. But I've gained weight!
Do you think it could be the low fat/who cares how many carbs I eat diet?
(who weights in tomorrow morning)
04-09-2003, 10:49 PM
Dana - Especially if you are lifting weights, I would bet you money that your weight gain is muscle mass. Muscle weighs more than fat but it takes more energy to maintain and therefore burns more calories. Try measuring and weighing to get an accurate picture of your progress.
Hey there, Karla B! I don't think there's really any deep, dark secret. I keep to 1200-1600 calories a day pretty much. It's just taking it one day at a time, one pound at a time. You will be so excited when you get to 199! It's a great feeling. I wish that for you soon!!!!!
Congrats on all the weight loss this week to all who have posted here this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I second what Jennelle said check your measurements but keep an eye on everything else. When I started (low fat) I lost real fast for about a month then the loss stopped. I thought I hit a plateau but then I started to gain a couple and lose a couple. I was constantly fighting the same couple of pounds for 2 months! You have to realize I was walking 2.4 miles 4 times a week and 1.2 miles was up a fairly steep hill. (hehehe, it was the only way to get back home!) the other 3 days I did conditioning exercises.
I was really getting disgusted and ready to quit. She opened my eyes to a lot of wrong ideas I had about "low fat/who cares how many carbs I eat diet". I'm not a true believer in low carbs yet, the old teachings are hard to let go but I'm trying it with a we'll see what happens to my cholesterol attitude. According to the Dr. this will not raise it and should even lower my triglyceride levels, like I said we'll see!

With the three pounds I took off this week, I also lost an inch in the waist and three in the boobs....but the hips are still hanging on-for now!
Total Loss since 3/1/03: 22 pounds
Starting Dress Size: 30/32, 4X-5X
Present Size: 22/24, 2X-3X
04-10-2003, 07:54 AM
I'm up about half to one pound...but I'm amazed it isn't more. I've been sitting around jury duty and eating like a pig.
I'm back to work today, and back on track. Did my two mile walk away the pounds with weights workout this morning (thirty minutes) and had wheat toast w/lowfat cottage cheese for breakfast.
I measured myself today, and since starting, I've lost a total of EIGHT inches off my hips and waist. I never bothered measuring my upper arms or thighs. I wish I had done that when I started.
I'm hypothyroid too. I've never done low carb, and I still lose weight. I think it's the exercise that makes a HUGE difference. If I weren't exercising, I would have gained at least four pounds with the way I've eaten the last week.
I do mainly stick to healthy carbs-whole grain ones. I do eat regular pasta, but not very often.
I can't wait to get under 220. I"m trying to get back to the weight I was before I got pregnant. Due to post partum depression, I gained a ton of weight after giving birth.
04-10-2003, 09:01 AM
gained 1 lb this week...
but I did have fun last weekend! :D
Maintained this week. I'm Ok with that -- it's better than a gain.
04-10-2003, 10:33 AM
Congratulations everyone!! You are doing so great!!!
I had a crazy morning on Monday and forgot to weigh in - and now I am hiding from the scale.
04-10-2003, 11:45 PM
I maintained this week due to my impending weekend of torture(you know the one...where the mac truck drives around in your uterus and you want to strangle the postal carrier because she accidentally put the top letter upside down).
04-11-2003, 09:11 AM
Paula - LMAO - your cracking me up!!! :lol:
04-11-2003, 10:21 AM
I was just reading the tread and I'm so impressed by all of your accomplishments.
I'm back at WW - again. Everytime I join, I weigh more than I did when I left. This time I'm going to do it!!! :strong:
While I reading all of your posts, I realize that I too, started with almost exactly 100 pounds to lose. While, it's hard to fathom, reading all of your posts makes me think that I can do it!
I had a 2 pound loss last week, my first week back. I can't wait to weigh in tomorrow to see how I did. I was on track all week, counting my points and I'm going to the gym today after work.
Good Luck everyone!
04-11-2003, 11:16 AM
Welcome back Beth!! Last week was my first week as well and I too have those 100 pesky pounds to lose. I weigh in today in about 2 hours and I am so hungry that I could eat my right arm off right now. But I will make it. I will let you all know how I did. My home scale this morning put me at a 3lb loss so I am excited to see.
04-11-2003, 01:42 PM
Hey all..... So I weighed myself on Wednesday and I was down to 288..... now I'm at 294 :( oh well... that's what I get for weighing myself twice in one week......
04-11-2003, 02:01 PM
Don't kick yourself deevine.. I weigh myself after everytime I go to the bathroom - I MUST STOP DOING THAT... it does me no good!
04-11-2003, 02:13 PM
So, Dana, do you weigh less after you pee? :)
I gained three pounds this week. Sigh! I knew I was doing bad. I haven't been to the gym all week and eating crap! Well, my vacation starts next week so, I'm determined to at least work out regularly for at least two weeks.
04-11-2003, 02:38 PM
today i was 198! 8lbs from my initial goal!
04-11-2003, 03:49 PM
Well I was actually down 4 lbs. Yeah!!! Can't wait until next week's weigh in!!
04-12-2003, 02:20 PM
I started my weight loss program on the 7th of April.
So far, I have lost 8 lbs. :)
I can't wait until that number goes up - and my weight goes down! ;)
04-12-2003, 04:42 PM
Go Karilyn!!!! 8 pounds in 7 days is good!!!!!
