Hello Clairebe4r and Shepherdgirl. :welcome2: .....

... 1st timers usually do reallllllyyy good. First time out for me I won WOo HOO.... Its just a contest to see who loses 5 lbs the fastest. Anyone can join at anytime!! :) Usually there is a bunch of people within 1 lb of winning... I got lucky this time as I was 2 lbs away.. but then I got my 1 time a month swoosh (and I don't even get TOM anymore) So the timing was good for me...

Rock that scale ladies and show us the way!! :)

So, question. Are we supposed to be reporting our daily weights? I have a WI once per week, so that's why I'm asking. Also, once someone 'wins', do we start a new thread and all weigh in on the same day with a new starting point? I'm just confused. lol

newleaf123
04-10-2013, 11:07 PM
shepherdgirl The great thing about 3FC is that anything goes, you can do whatever works for you LOL But yeah, for this challenge, people do seem to check in daily or weekly with their current weight, and as soon as someone hits 5 pounds, a new challenge begins.

In my mind, the goal being to keep chipping away at little losses and maintain the momentum. But I'm sure it's different for everyone. Congratulations on your 25 pound loss; you are off to a great start!!

shepherdgirl
04-10-2013, 11:59 PM
Thanks, although technically I've been maintaining at it for several years and just never kept on. So far the most I've lost at a time has been around 30 lbs. and then I've either maintained it or gained it back. Hopefully this time will be different. :)

I think I'll just stick with reporting my weekly weight and celebrating the losses then. I have so much fluctuation from day to day depending on what I eat--although I guess I could mention that I've lost 4 lbs in the last 2 days! I also know that my TOM is coming up, so I'll probably gain that water weight right back.

I really like the idea of focusing on the small chunks. A popular mantra that I like is the one that says "I can't lose 100 lbs, but I can lose 10 lbs. ten times!" Or in this case, 5 lbs. 20 times!

TMI WARNING - I realized last night that I haven't been regular in the bathroom department since Friday or Saturday, so I'm hoping this is the reason for the gain :barf:. This is evidently a common side effect with Medifast, it just caught me off guard because i was fine the whole first week. I've taken stool softeners so maybe by morning I'll feel better :shrug:, and the scale will look better too...

Yay - I stayed in my new decade. Because I was only just barely into it, I was a bit afraid I would go up, but it stayed the same for a couple of days, then dropped again this mornng, so I think it's safe to say I am officially in the 150s. and I have now lost exactly a stone since I started (14 lb for the US ladies).

CW: 220.6 Loss of 6.2 lbs in 10 days! Fun fact--I checked my weight loss chart and 220.6 puts me exactly at 25% of my total weight loss goal. Gotta do this 3 more times!

Disclaimer: This was my first week of getting back on the wagon, so it's mostly water weight. And I may or may not have stepped on the scale this morning, looked at the number disgustedly and then went to the bathroom to see if a BM would help--and it did! My TOM just started, so I'll probably gain some of this water weight back. :P

Hopefully I can make this an 'official' loss on Sunday, my normal weigh-in day. That means I also will be getting a new chick avatar=30 lbs. total loss. :)
