100 lb. Club - Weekly weigh in April 5th - April 11th

04-05-2004, 03:50 PM
Sorry guys....I have been super busy, I forgot to start the weekly weigh in thread!

So, busy I forgot to even weight in yesterday. But, to my disapointment I did not forget this morning....I should of forgot. I gained 3 pounds!!!! EEEEKKKKKKKS...I am so bummed. I mean, honestly, I am not suprized, I was getting over a cold, helping my yongest stay out of the hospital for the third time in 4 weeks.....and working at Lane Bryant. And, being so stressed and busy, I slacked and did not plan meals out, so ate fast food a lot...ugh...my down fall. But it is so convienient.

I guess I am more mad for falling back into my old "thought patterns" when I saw the gain. I was angry, pissed, ad wanted to completely give up....and not go to the gym this morning like planned...because why bother, I was tired anyway. But, I slapped myself silly with my gym bag....and went anyhoo, and thouht out why I may have gained the weight. But...man, I feel like I come so far...and then take three steps back...like that. ugh....this is so not easy is it??? Then again, no one said it is!!!!!

How did everyone else do this week????

I lost 2.5 pounds and 2% body fat. Guess all that exercise is starting to pay off.

Gina--Sounds like you are on the right track despite the gain. Good for you for getting into gear and making to the gym.

04-05-2004, 04:15 PM
well i lost the lb. i gained last week and another 1/2 lb., so that is 1.5 lb for the week. will i ever get to twoferville? i am beginning to wonder. gina, get back up on that horse and finish this race. you have come so far and are doing great and CONGRATS babygirl.

04-05-2004, 04:21 PM
Gina - don't worry, those pounds will come off easy next time!
Dawnyal & Audrey - Congrats!!

I am down 5lbs to 245!

04-05-2004, 04:25 PM
lost 3 lbs. i worked extra hard last week... 3 more to go to ONEderland!

04-05-2004, 04:33 PM
I lost 1 lb!!

I managed to stay off sweets last week and that was my goal. I only exercised twice, but it's a start!!!

This week, I am back to counting my calories. This week the goal is to stick to 1800 calories and work out 5 days.

Gina - Don't sweat the gain - just get back to business today. I kow how it feels when you get derailed, but it just takes one thing to get you back on track. Mine was reading Raelynn's poist last week. Yours might be goingto the gym when you weren't motivated to!!!

Congrats to all the losers!!!

You guys rock!! (wiping tear from eye!) Thanks!

My official weigh-in day is Saturday, so on that day I posted this in the Weekly Weigh-in thread ending the 4th -- but it seems that I should have waited to post it here instead. (I was wondering why noone said anything!) Anyway, here goes:

As of Saturday I was another 3 pounds down, bringing me to a total of 20 pounds lost since March 1!!!!! I'm so excited.....I was saying in my last post that I was walking around looking at things that weigh 20 pounds and telling myself I don't have to carry around that weight anymore, like a sack of potatoes, my Italian Greyhound and one of my fatter cats, and -- Oh jeez, now I'm looking around my cubicle for things that might weigh 20 pounds! Stop me, I'm mentally weighing things and I can't stop!! :lol: Guess I'm just giddy with excitement! :dizzy:

Ginagirl, I wish I could just give you a big hug, you sweetie pie! You're doing a great job, just need to remember to set yourself up for success, that's all. With so much on your plate, planning is going to be critical. Just remember the words you wrote in your signature and make them your mantra....you need to set aside the time for yourself to make those meals in advance, etc. With two kids, a hubby, a part-time job and your sickness and your child's, it's no wonder you're struggling with juggling everything. So it's certainly going to be a challenge, but you're up for it. Just sit down and plan it, then do what you need to do to manage your time so that you can make it happen. Only in that way are you going to succeed, and get yourself stronger and healthier........so that you're better able to continue to take care of everyone else! You count, too! Don't be hard on yourself....you did such an awesome job identifying the defeatist thought patterns and responding positively..........YAY YOU!!!!! I think you should count this day a success for that alone. There was a day you couldn't have done that, right? So you -- we all -- progress a little at a time. No biggie. You're headed for greatness, Gina.......one step at a time! :grouphug:

04-06-2004, 01:10 AM
Thanks Sarah!!!! You are right!!! But still....lol :devil:

You are doing amazing....wtg!!! Isn't it a great feeling. Someone said to me about my 30 pound loss..."imagine running up and down the stair with a 30 pound bag of dog food? Well...you were 30 pounds ago" Wow, what an analogy!! The visual thing helps me out a lot!!

04-06-2004, 08:43 AM
Congrats to all the losers so far this week! And Gina - you've done so well and you know what went wrong last week so now you can stay on the right track! You'll knock those lbs off this week!

04-06-2004, 12:37 PM
Congrats to all of our "loosers"!

I gained 1.5 pounds this week. Boo. Apparently even birthday cake has calories and points (who knew??). Ah well...right back on track! Going for an extra run tonight to try to counteract some of the 3 birthday celebrations from last week.

Gina - I believe that the true measure of success is how quickly you get back on plan. Sounds like it didn't take you much time at all! That's how you know that you will be successful in weight loss.

Audrey - You are so close to Twoderville!! Woohoo!

Have a good week ladies (and gents...)!

It seems I only ever get time to post here early in the week. Sorry! No computer at home and when I'm busy at work I don't have a moment to write.

I don't really know anyone because I just recently started posting here but I think everyone is doing great and we all deserve a hand. It certainly does help to be in the company of motivated people in my situation (or something like it). You guys are great and I'm happy to be a part of this group, even if I'm not often around.

My current stats are posted in my signature. I'm still stunned things are going so well for me. I'm way ahead of where I thought I'd be, assuming I'd even stick with it, which I wasn't able to do last year at all. I'm going to do it this time. I can feel it!

Thanks for the support and keep at it everyone. :)

04-07-2004, 12:03 AM
Thank you Julie!!!! :) I forgot to say Congrats :cheers: to the other losers & remind Miss Gina that no, it is never easy. If it were, we would all be the size we wanted with a snap of our fingers. We just have to keep trucking. I was in the dang 80's for a looooonnnnng time, and even went back in the 90's.

04-07-2004, 12:07 AM
I'm down 2 pounds for this week!

04-07-2004, 12:36 AM
Congrat's on the loss, Celina!

04-07-2004, 10:01 AM
Congrats on the loss Celina.

Woohooo SAPF!! Way to beat that plateau!

04-07-2004, 08:44 PM
I don't know how but down 3 lbs....a total of 18.75 gone

04-08-2004, 01:07 AM
i'm the same as last week. with TOM here and only one day of exercise last week (bad knee), i think that's pretty good.

04-08-2004, 05:10 PM
I'm down 2 pounds this week. I have to remember that slow is good. I wanted it to be more. Congrats to all the losers!! I'm down a total of 13 pounds now. For those who did not do as well as they would have liked I send much encouragement that the next week will be better. :)

Tammy, you silly goose! :rolleyes: 13 pounds in 3 1/2 weeks??!! Don't you think that 3.7 pounds per week is pretty great???!!! If you had gained that much, wouldn't you find it to be a great deal? Hmmm... I think you're doing awesome, I really do! :high: Of course we always want it to be more, but I think that's great progress! :)

04-09-2004, 04:23 PM
Sarah, You are right. Looking at it by the average is good. I think I have warped thinking. One week I might loose 4 and then when the next week comes around and I only lose 2 I get upset. I need to get in the mindset that any weight loss no matter how much is good. It puts me that much closer to my goal. Thanks for the encouraging words!! :) :) :)

It's been ages since I've posted for the week. I haven't been losing or gaining lately, though I have seen more of a change in my clothes in the past month and a half than I noticed when I lost the first 15 pounds of this journey. I bought a new dress for Easter and it's a size 16...I haven't worn a size 16 in 12 or 13 years, not since I was a freshman or sophomore in high school.

So, now for the exciting news...things are back on a downward trend. Last week I lost .2, and this week I lost 4.8...for a two week total of 5 POUNDS!!!! I earned my 65 pound star at WW this morning! So I'm no oh, so close to 75 total.

Though today I will be having pizza for lunch and supper seeing as I failed to plan ahead for the day's events. It was pizza or chinese, and the pizza will be more filling and have leftovers so, pizza won!

Keep up the good work everyone, it's not easy but it's worth it.
