I hope you all dont mind me starting up the new thread...I didn't even see last weeks thread to check the dates. Anyhoo...
Im FINALLY down from this plateau...2 pounds gone this week, for a total of 47.5...and only 2 pounds till ONEderland!!!!! I'm so excited!
How are you all doing?
10-11-2004, 09:08 AM
Oh, my goodness, Amy Jo -- I'm so excited for you! You're *sooooo* close to Onederland! Do you have something really great planned to celebrate it? I know I'd be so thrilled when I get there.
I'm 3.5 down this week, from 234.5 to 231! One pound away from my Halloween goal, way earlier than I thought I'd be there. TOM this week, though, so things may slow down to a glacial pace for a while :).
Congrats again, Amy Jo. You're doing great!

Congrats Amy Jo. I did start the thread this week (Yesterday) and there was one from last week. I ll bump it up so you can check everyones reports out. I'll also put a note on mine for this week to post on this one since mine was at the bottom of the page and nobody responded anyway.. Would You take over this weekly thread? The next few weeks I am not going to be available. This is perfect timing. Thanks.

Congrats Amy Jo - You are so close to Onederland!!!
Jennifer - Congrats, we are almost the same weight!
Gretchen - you are doing awesome!
I am finally reporting a loss, after a plateau that lasted all summer and then some (at least I maintained! I am down 3 to 230. Almost in the 220's! I am going to Banff at the end of the month, I want to be closer to 220 (3 weeks to work at it) - there is this gorgeous size 16 dress that I am going to wear, and it fits now, but I'd like to still lose a couple of more by then. :)

I lost another lb which is kind of amazing because I am so amazingly bloated right now because of TOM. My waist is up 2 inches from normal, ugh. I started to panic at first because my weight floated a few lbs up then dropped to 298.
Oh almost forgot to add, even though I have some bloating right now, I am wearing a size of 22 pants. I think they are generously sized as all my other pants are 24, but i'll take it ;)
10-11-2004, 12:05 PM
Woo hoo Amy Jo! Congrat's girlfriend! You must be so excited about Onederland just around the corner!
Jennifer, your pic is gorgeous!! Hummina...hubba, and all that! ;) And you GO with that loss! You're doing it, girl!
Raelynn -- I'm so happy for you! You have got to feel great...my hat is off to your perseverance and fortitude! Congratulations, and I know you'll get into that dress and look beautiful. :)

Wow you all are doing great. I am waiting to weigh in until this three week challenge that I'm on is up. I am tired of the scales telling me how I feel. So I am going to try weighing monthly now.
10-11-2004, 12:42 PM
Wow, thanks, Sarah. You made me blush! :o
10-11-2004, 02:07 PM
Excellent everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!! WELL DONE!
I'm still 204 - which means I've lost a big fat zilch!!! Its my TOM so we'll just see next week.
You are all doing so well.
Big Love xxxx

Oh Gretchen, Im so sorry! I didnt even see it! Maybe if I'd open my eyes a little!! I'd be glad to do this, though, while you're away.
--Almost to your Halloween goal, and still 2 weeks to go!! YAY!!! Great new pic Teapot!
--Howie, what you said was perfect. "Im tired of thescales telling me how I feel"!! I LOVE that! I think you may be on to something there!
--Realynn, Dont you just love these plateaus? I think I finally jumped off mine (HOPEFULLY). Cant wait to see soem pics of that dress!
--Nelie, WOOOHOOO!! As some one told me here ( I think it was Celina), a size 22 is STILL a size 22...even if it is loose!!
10-11-2004, 02:21 PM
I lost half a pound, not bad considering it's TOM. The scale lingered on 173 before going up to 175, so hopefully next week will be better
10-11-2004, 04:13 PM
I'm down .5 this week to 260 even. I think my body is resisting wanting to get into the 250s. Maybe it's a sign I won't be there long and will be in the 240s really soon? Wishful thinking anyway.
WTG Gretchen for being into the 140s. You're getting so close to that goal.
Jennifer--that is awesome on the Halloween goal and I agree the new pic is great!!!
Amy Jo--Can't wait for you to tell us you've made it to Onederland
Raelynn--that is super you have passed your plateau. You're truly an inspiration. I hope I have the perserverance you have showed for yours when mine keeps lingering like it has.
Nelie and Lori--a loss is a loss and it could've been a gain. That could just mean you're going to have a bigger loss for next week.
Annie Rose--with it being TOM I think a maintain is great. I know some who can gain 5 pounds during it.

Congrats to all the losers!
I lost five lbs-my first week back on track!
Hoping to hit onderland (again..sigh..) by Xmas.
10-12-2004, 08:30 PM
That is wonderful, Sherry! Keep up the great work! Sounds like a great Christmas present to yourself. :)
10-12-2004, 10:52 PM
Congrats everyone for being a huge loser ;) (I love saying that!!) I don't weigh in until Friday.. but I have my fingers crossed that I'll have lost at least a pound .. TOM is sneaking up on me though.. ick!
Jen - that is definitely a hot picture.. more people need to use their own picture! I love to see what other people look like.. make the internet feel less "fake".
Sherry - don't you love that first week back OP? I always feel like I can accomplish anything after experiencing a huge weight loss :)
Barby - I am SO impressed by you.. if I only experienced a .5 loss I would definitely quit.. you should be an example to us all.. you give me some perspective..I think you are doing a great job.. can I borrow some of that motivation? ;)
10-12-2004, 11:03 PM
Kudos' to all you LOSERS! :bravo:
Still no idea where I'm at... I've been scared to step on the scale for like the past month... Hopefully, I'll have somehting to report this week. Its my full intention to jump on. ;)
10-13-2004, 07:53 AM
WOW what a bunch of shrinking people. Well I am also shrinking as well I went down 2.8lbs this week and was horribly worried because I didn't stay fully OP last week. But I didn't do as bad as I thought I had so I'm happy!
Good job to all, and keep up the good work!
10-13-2004, 11:27 AM
I am a little late checking in but I am down 2lbs for the week!!! Yeah....
10-14-2004, 12:15 AM
MY GOOD GOD!
So, Im down 2 pounds! Mind you, that is 1 whole month of not stepping on the scale but I was totally off plan but I've been on plan now for 1 full week and going strong! Heck, I even made it to the gym tonight for the 1st time in over 1 month.. I'm so excited and proud of myself! :D
I know its only a 2lb loss but STILL it's a loss and I'll take it.. I was expecting a fairly high gain!
10-14-2004, 01:09 AM
Good for you Celina. I can't wait until my weigh in on the 29th.
10-14-2004, 05:37 PM
We are all doing so well.
Swim--> You asked to "borrow" some motivation. I can't give up my kids but I will share a pic or 2 with you.
Every time I look at them I know that if I want to see them grow up and be an active parent and not a sideline parent I remember that I HAVE to lose weight. The other motivating factor for me is that I had gestational diabetes while pregnant with William. I had to give myself up to 3 shots a day of insulin. Not fun for someone who can't stand needles. That made me realize that unless I want to be doing that again in a few years I have to lose my weight. I'm not dieting. Yes I monitor how much I take in each day and yes I do still have a 2500 calorie day. But that's just it. I have a day not a week or a month of 2500 or more calories.
My kids and my not wanting to have to give myself shots are a big motivator. I think once you find something you work for/toward you'll have your motivator as well. I think you are doing a super job and I know you can do it!!!
10-14-2004, 08:02 PM
omg how cute are they!?!?!?!?!
i forgot to post yesterday. i was going to try the weigh once a month thing but i just can't do it. i'm down 3.8 this week after my 2.8 pound gain last week so it looks like i'm down a pound for the week. i was so bad last week and its TOM so i'm very thrilled with this loss.
congrats to everyone who lost or almost lost. we can do this!
10-14-2004, 08:18 PM
Dawnyal - they are adorable :) And coming from your stand point I would probably doing the same thing, I wish I had something in my life like that to motivate me. For me it's a superficial thing, but at the same time.. I really felt uncomfortable when I was thinner, being in a big city, and dealing with the way men just stare, grosses me out. Right now I feel I can do whatever I put my mind to, which is probably my age, I hike up my mountain a few times a week, in dress shoes, and I seem to recover alright. My brother and I are planning to hike a mountain in the summer, so maybe that'll give me an extra kick!
I don't weigh in until tomorrow, and I don't think I am down.. stupid TOM! grrishness!
Shelly - 3.8 pounds?? Thats SO great, congrats :)
10-15-2004, 08:12 AM

10-15-2004, 09:45 AM
I'm only down 1 pound.. grrr.. I have to lose 6 more pounds this month in order to hit my challege this month ..
