100 lb. Club - Weigh-in for Week of 9/12-18
09-12-2005, 10:19 AM
Since no one else started one, I thought I would give it a go!
I started the Jorge Cruise 3-Hour Diet last week, and I lost 6 pounds! :cb: I know it's water, but a pound is a pound no matter what (unless it's muscle!).
How did you all do last week? :dancer:
09-12-2005, 11:02 AM
Happy to report a 4 pound loss and a couple inches already! Did really well!
09-12-2005, 11:14 AM
Wow Jeanette & Gretchen! Between the both of you, you've lost 10 pounds this week. WTG!!!
I'm down 2 this week.
09-12-2005, 12:10 PM
I'm going to say a 3 lbs loss. I weighted in at 206 yesterday but was 209 today. Last week I was 212 so I'll go with a 3lbs loss. My weight has been all over. Maybe because I started adding weight training to my workouts.
09-12-2005, 01:11 PM
Great losses. I'm up again but I haven't really been working on my diet or exercise in a couple of weeks so it's no wonder.

Wow Gretchen -- when you come back...you come BACK!
Mez, weights will do that -- your muscles hold some water I believe -- particulary the day after. After 6 or so weeks, you will notice weight dropping quickly all of a sudden.
Which brings me to my weight....I dropped an average of 3.2 lbs. this past week. Now, I do the old Bob Greene method of weighing daily and taking a weekly average because my weight is tremendously influenced by hormones. If I go just by last Monday's weight versus today's weight, it is actually a loss of 4.7lbs. Does that make sense? Officially, I am using the average and saying it is a loss of 3.2 lbs.
My point is that, after 9 weeks of losing so slowly I wanted to scream, my 10th week was a winner. I am hoping this continues. I have heard that this can happen after 6 or more weeks of weights (I think the average is 8).
Anyone else have this experience? It could, of course, also be a fluke, but I didn't change anything last week.

I'm not weighing this week, I'm going to try to stretch out the time between weigh-ins to two weeks instead of one. Next week I'll weigh myself and cross my fingers I lost those last 4lbs I need to get to onederland.

I maintained this week. Going to really watch what I eat this week. Had a few bad days last week.
09-12-2005, 06:24 PM
Congratulations to you all for doing so great! I gained a pound this week but that is because I ate total crap for the last 3 days, there was chinese food, birthday cake, party foods (bread bowl and dip, shrimp dip, stuffed mushrooms, etc etc) fetecini alfreado with scallops and shrimp, apple pie. I didn't just fall off the wagon I down right hurled myself to the ground and continued to bounce down the road. This week will be better though and I am still treadmilling! Congratulations to you all though!

Sadly I went up this time ~ 2 pounds. Some stressful stuff at home. Still haven't gotten to a point where I have found some alternate way to deal with stress. Why do I do that to myself? I sort of do it without even thinking ~ such an old familiar way to cope. But then I don't feel good after ~ either physically or emotionally. But I'm not giving up ~ keeping on keeping on. I have to ~ I'd be in even worse a fix if I didn't try as much as I can.
09-13-2005, 11:03 AM
I'm only down a pound but it was a special one. This am my scale said 199.8!
Congrats to all the losers :)
Mez, my weight bounces around a lot too so I weigh almost daily and pick the lowest one. I tell myself not to worry about the little gains but I don't always listen lol

I only record my weight officially once a month on the 13th (my goal to be 145 is my 25th bday 4/13/07 so I use this past Bday as my official start date even though I didn't REALLY start until June 2nd sooo yea... I gave myself 2 years...) ANYHOO... From 08-13-05 to today I lost 4.8 pounds. I guess that's the healthy way... :shrug: :)

We have some great loses here this week. And way to go Catherine, ONDERLAND is awesome.
For those who have gained just keep with it. That is the big secret, you can't give up.
It will be tough week for me we are going to be traveling starting tomorrow and it is so hard to be good on the road. I am really going to try though.

Well, after five weeks of hovering between 277 and 278, I finally lost. I'm at 275.
If you haven't been a certain weight in over five years, does it count as VFT? Last time I tried to lose, which was two or three years ago, I got down to 277 and couln't break the plateau. So I gave up. I think my body has certain set-points -- places I've hovered for a long time in my journey "up", and so it feels comfortable there and doesn't want to lose more. Like notches on a belt. "Oh, this is a worn belt notch... I remember this one... it feels good, like coming home... I think I'll just stay here a while.."
Anyway, I'm delighted to be at 275, and more encouraged than ever to keep going.
Creeping down a bit more to 193. Slow but steady will do me now, anything but up really ;)
09-14-2005, 04:32 PM
I'm down this week from 195.4 to 194.2 for a loss of 1.2 pounds.
I'll take it :)
09-14-2005, 08:18 PM
WOW! We've had some good losses this week! Congratulations you losers!
For those of you that gained or maintained, hang in there! It appears that there is a lot of stress going around and that plays a major factor in our weight.
And a special congratulations for mabear! What an accomplishment! :dance:
I lost another 3 lbs this week, which qualified me for my 2nd mini-goal - or if would have if they hadn't kicked me out! :rofl: Guess I'd better get off my butt and go make my own magnet!
09-14-2005, 11:50 PM
Congratualtions to all the "losers" especially mabear and synger and encouragment for all :crossed:
Last week I was up 3 pounds but didn't think much of it as I was mostly on plan. This week I am down 7 pounds! I am beginning to think that the scale I use (the one at my gym) is not very reliable. Oh well. I'll just keep posting whatever it reads ;)
09-15-2005, 07:00 AM
Down 2 pounds for the week! :D
Great losses this week everyone!
09-15-2005, 07:27 AM
After gaining a pound last week, I've lost 6 pounds this week.
I'm down to an anorexic 394.
09-15-2005, 08:33 AM
Matt you are so cute! Anorexic!!
09-15-2005, 11:58 AM
1 lb. for me this week. Yeahhhhh!!
:cool: Wow everyone - great stuff I am down two. Not bad considering my week. I am approaching it one craving/meal at a time. I think overall I made more healthy choices. Showed up on the scale. I really tried hard to listen to all of you that spoke about embracing lifestyle changes vs. "starting over" after bad days. Thanks. I think I am also going to follow some others leads and set "mini goals". Should make things a little less daunting.
09-15-2005, 02:07 PM
Well done everyone. I am 5 pounds down!?! Excellent - I am on WW and made sure I ate all my points this week - I had been eating too little I think- magic!!!
09-16-2005, 08:34 AM
Congrats to the losers and maintainers and for those sticking with it!! Alls one can do is keep trying and before long those little numbers will be huge numbers heading in the right direction!
09-16-2005, 11:45 AM
I'm at 286.5 (I was at 277 at the beginning of the summer). Back on the road again.

I am beginning to think that the scale I use (the one at my gym) is not very reliable.
Probably a year ago I did a daily weigh-in for a little over a month. I picked a time of day (as it happened it ended up being when I came home from work). My period skews my weight, but not as I would have thought. Generally I start losing a lot before it starts, then it holds steady and even goes up just after it ends. I didn't keep it up longer to see if this was an anomaly since the daily weighing was making me ...umm.. neurotic.
I normally weigh on Mondays (which I did this week), but couldn't resist stepping on the scale today and I'm down 5 - but that doesn't mean I'll be still down 5 on this coming Monday. Sometimes I think of getting rid of the scale in the house, but then I'd just end up using the floor scale in our shipping area at work (now it's accurate).
09-18-2005, 10:23 PM
My first week w/ Jorge I lost 3 pounds!! :D I'm down to 232 yaay!
09-18-2005, 11:37 PM
Down 2 lbs more! :) Creeping ever closer to the half-way point! :D:D:D:D
09-19-2005, 12:52 PM
Good job everyone.
Matt, 6 lbs that is awesome.
