Default Blue Team Spring Into Action Chat Thread Week 3 (06/03/13 - 06/09/13)

Okay here we are week 3 and I'm worse off then when we started sorry hit a rough patch but hope to get better from here. Lots of problems at home that I hope are somewhat better now. Crazy rain inside the house, work, and TOM got the better of me.

New fresh start again this week. Only 12lbs to goal and maintain but I always seem to find a way to sabatoge my efforts when I get this close. I was debating on just doing the threads but not participate this time but I need to get to goal and stay there.

Back to the basics and small steps toward big things

Have a great week 3 everyone..

Bigmid - i completely agree with you that the last few pounds are the hardest. It is so easy to sabotage self. Good luck and stay strong.

Hope everyone else has a good week. I got a good exercise day in again but i think this week will be hard. Last week of school for kids and got things i need to wrap up.

I thought things were beginning to slow down around here but week 2 was still as crazy as week 1 !

Hubby got a new job over the weekend and we were out of town visiting some good friends. Eating and exercise have still been off but this week I am determined to get back on track... so far so good today.

Here's to an awesome week 3 !

Hiya ladies. Congrats to everyone with losses, maintaining and to those who had some problems this week...next week will be better!

Bigmid, I totally understand the sabotage thing...last time I lost weight, I got within a few pounds of my goal weight and then started gaining. Ended up being 70 pounds gained back out of the 100 I'd lost before I got myself back in control. So I applaud you for recognizing, and getting on here to commit!

Looking though the weigh ins, Kayin made it to ONEDERLAND!!! Congrats!

Not much new here. I had to go shopping today to get new pants, and I only shopped in the "normal" size section! Totally walked by the plus size section. It has been years since I've been able to fit into a true size 16. (Yes I know 16 is still considered plus size, but the store stocks all size 15/16 pants with the other smaller sizes, so I'm still excited lol). And my tops are now XL. Was a cool feeling and I left the store pretty happy with myself, ha ha.

Let's kick rear this week ladies!

My scale is flirting with 210 not enough to claim it yet though. Got some exercise yesterday, but what was most impressive in my mind was the watermelon .

We have an extra fridge downstairs where we keep big things like those 5 dozen egg cartons, extra milk and . . . watermelon. I got this one at Costco, and it was big. And heavy - maybe 10 lbs. I got it out of the fridge and starting trudging up the stairs and it hit me - prior to New Year's 2013, I had been carrying the equivalent of 5 of these things EVERYWHERE I went. Incredible!

I can also feel the pep in my step getting quicker and easier. DH notices too, but it's still not enough for him to join me. . . sigh. . . maybe after the next 50 lbs, eh?

Proud of all our loser-winners, you guys rock \m/

Doragone - isnt it amazing what we use to carry and that realization moment. I did that with a barbell i work out with. It heavy but that is what i use to carry allthe time.

Kayin - congrats on onederland

Ajlee - i am so impressed that you do insanity. And that fact that you miss it even more so. I tried it once and probably lasted 10 minutes. It was way too much for me.

Well, my exercise level has been staying good this week. I am a daily weigher and my weight keeps bouncing up and down this week. I been hitting the barbells hard so im hoping most is water retention. Next week, i decided to get a one month membership at the gym. Usually dont have time/money for full membership. But figure this will allow kids swim time in their outdoor pool while i hit the gym hard and try to get these last pounds to move

ajlee33 -- hope you had fun on your vacation! And WTG to getting straight back on track as soon as your returned

Doragone -- I completely agree about the watermelon. The baby weighs 20 pounds and every time I lift her up, I think "I used to carry 2 of her! And at one point I actually carried 5 of her!" Crazy....

Hiddenstar - yay on the gym membership! I really want to get one but the baby is too clingy. Running is great for cardio, but I need some strength training to tone up...hoping she'll be a little less clingy soon so I can go in!

Scale is down to 209.8 today!!! I've lost 40 pounds since I started exactly two months ago (Apr 5), and 100 pounds overall (again, lol). I weighed 310 in 2009 and worked my way down to 210. Then fell off the wagon and ballooned back up to 270. So 210 is kind of an important number. I made it back, and this time I am going to keep going!!!

Needless to say things have been crazy busy the past week but I have been eating properly and staying OP. I have not had much time for exercise but I did go for a short run this morning and my husband and I are doing our Insanity workout after he gets home from work.

Hopefully I will be below 244 by Sunday!

hiddenstar - insanity is exhausting.. and i am not going to lie... i take many breaks throughout the videos.. even when it isnt break time.. but i keep on and just think to myself.. next time i do this video I will take 2 less breaks.. i write down how many breaks i take therefore i can focus on taking 2 less breaks each time i do that video

jessicado22 - THANKS I didnt do insanity videos when I got home.. instead I went outside ( i live in apartments) and I ran up and down the stairs 60 times.. so that was a great workout.. leg really felt it.

its raining right now boooo.. but once it stops i am going to go outside for a run and run up some stairs.. if no stopping of the rain.. then i will do my insanity videos.. I might actually just do both
