How Did You Do On August Weightloss Goals?

P-poorly. I gained five pounds.

08-30-2004, 05:26 PM
This was a month of highs and lows! Got 1.5 pounds from my final goal weight and then the fam damily came home! Gained 10!!!!! So, I'm not sure I want to answer your question Ruth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!

I didn't do great OK???????

08-30-2004, 05:30 PM
Not good, I lost and regained the same 2 pounds several times. So I basically stayed the same.

08-30-2004, 05:32 PM
I didn't do well this month either...down 8.5 pounds...for two weeks now. :p When TOM leaves, I'm hoping for another pound or two to fall off...keep your fingers crossed! :crossed:

I'm off to start a September Challenge...I think we all need to get back on track, me included (x2!)


08-30-2004, 05:49 PM
Good thing you love me, huh, Ellis? :crazy:

I know...but it's so frustrating for me to see it stop just because I was freaked out that it was going too fast. <sigh>

Just remember, I have a whole heck of a lot more to lose than you do. You could wait four months (not that you will) and still be done before I am! ;)

I also had my second failing month in a row. I had a feeling that I was going to but tried to make a goal of 5 pounds. Instead I gained 5 pounds. :stress: September IS going to go better than July and August did! Lotsa unhappy faces it looks like this time Ruth! :cry:

08-30-2004, 07:20 PM
P.S. Laurie, I'll take your 8.5 pounds anyday! Good job! :bravo:

08-30-2004, 07:45 PM
I did really well. I lost 6.6 pounds slightly more than my goal of 6 pounds. This is great for me because I stalled for so long.

08-30-2004, 09:03 PM
My goal was to weigh 319, I beat that and I'm down to 312.

08-30-2004, 09:23 PM
Laurie, you're just going to FLY by me, baby. :lol:
I'm very glad that you're continuing to lose. :grouphug:

And congratulations to those of you (the very few, mind you) who have made your goal this month! :hat:
I'll be whippin' your butts next month, so look out.

08-30-2004, 09:34 PM
I passed my goal...I'm down 11lbs this month....I think I need to add some more good carbs back in so I don' t lose as fast...

08-30-2004, 09:36 PM

08-30-2004, 09:58 PM
A big congrats to everyone who lost :cb:. I'm holding out for one more day ;).

Doreen :)

My body punished me after drinking way too much alcohol, stayed at 215 even though I started Phase I all over again for 2 weeks. But 15 for the whole month is good enough for me :o)

08-31-2004, 12:26 AM
I am down 10.5 since August 4th weigh in. I know this a.m. I weighed 259.5 so I might have a little more by the time the days are done. :hat:

08-31-2004, 12:33 AM
I lost 1.5 but ate healthy so I am ok with it. Will shoot for more in September

08-31-2004, 07:52 AM
I set my goal low after doing miserably last month. I am glad to report that I did meet my measly goal of a 3 lb. weight loss. Well, now the kiddies are bts
(back to school) which means now I have more time to exercise, so my Sept. goal may be a whopping four pounds :lol:

08-31-2004, 08:07 AM
Down 5. Duh I didn't see this thread. :(

08-31-2004, 08:21 AM
My weight stayed the same, but I think I managed to stay OP more days than not. It's really tough changing old habits. :rolleyes:

Ok I know I have lost 5 but possible 6 I cannot remember my total loss for July! Hey but I am only 1lb away from hitting the under 200 mark!!! :dance:

08-31-2004, 09:36 AM
I'll be whippin' your butts next month, so look out.

Now that's the spirit, Ellis! :jig: You are so going to be kicking all our butts! Everyone, wave as Ellis flies by! :wave:

And major congrats to Chick (yay for getting that scale going again! :cheers: ) and to Nelie (I am in awe of your lifting prowess, girl! :strong: )

Next month is going to be so good for all of us, I am sure! :yes:

Adapting a phrase from a friend of mine: "New Year, New Habits". ;)
(I know it's not a real new year, but I'm forever locked in a school-year view)

08-31-2004, 09:49 AM
SKHerb, you are SO close to ONEderland!!! Wow!!! :cheers: :hat: :cp: :cheer: :cp:

(I fixed your smilie so it was the dancing used a large D so it came up like this: :Dance: )

08-31-2004, 12:17 PM
Ok, so I lost 4, then gained two, for a total loss of 2. I don't won a scale, I always weigh myself at my parent's place. However, I am getting a scale this weekend! And that will TOTALLY motivate me!

And congrats to everyone! Laurie, you are so good! And Nelie, you are going to beat your Xmas goal, and History Chick- 11 lbs! Way to go!!!!!

08-31-2004, 12:28 PM
Thanks Laurie. i know I will make it by september!!!!!!

08-31-2004, 02:08 PM
I failed. Weighed in this morning cause I knew I needed to post. Missed by 2 pounds but overall am down 3.5 for the month. I would have done it too.

I am going for a new decade next month. I will succeed.

08-31-2004, 02:19 PM
Jen, don't say you failed. You haven't failed, you did lose 3.5 lbs last month which is a healthy rate. I have never really been a goal maker before the past few months but I realize that helps keep me on track. If I haven't achieved what I wanted to, I analyze what I did and modify in order to meet my goals.

Congratulations to all losers!

I didn't see this post, so posted on the daily thread. August was 5.4 pounds.

08-31-2004, 02:31 PM
I didn't meet my goal either. After yo-yo'ing all month, I am only down 2 pounds. :( I WILL do better in September! :cb:

08-31-2004, 02:36 PM
My goal was 7 but put me down for an 8 pound loss. Thanks!

08-31-2004, 02:41 PM
Ruth, I saw the results thread and looked at myself. My goal was to lose 6 lbs and be at 319, but I ended up losing 13 lbs ;) Now if only I could do that every month...

not good on the scale (up 1) but I lost 2 inches in my bust and three in my waist!

08-31-2004, 09:43 PM
Please post your results here and I'll update the thread as I get them. Remember you still have a day and a half!

Ok I am down 3.5 pounds. Less that I was last month but not as much as my goal was :(

09-01-2004, 09:03 AM
Congrats to everyone on their losses :cp: . Didn't do too well on the scale, up .8, not even a pound. So, really can't complain. Did have a great none scale victory, back into my size 8's. So, I am losing inches. Now all I need is the scale to move :rolleyes: . On to the September Challenge. Good luck to all in September.

Doreen :)
