I'm almost back into my J-lo size 14 jeans lol. They button but they are a little too tight for my taste. I like some slack in my jeans. Maybe 10 more pounds will do the trick!

Happy Sunday everyone!

Hi ladies,

I would love to join this challenge but it won't be till April 11th. I'm going on vacation and know the diet will be majorly sabotaged while I'm away so whats the point, right? Lol

I had a baby 19 months ago and I'm currently down about 27 lbs from my pre pregnancy weight of 169 and my goal is to hit 115 by July. I'm hoping this will keep me accountable .

I know I'm late to join but I need a kick start to my weight loss before summer. I have not been taking it very serious the past month. I do great for a few days then the end of the weeks comes and we're eating out all weekend. Ugh frustrating! So I would like to drop 25 lbs by June 1st. I have a lot more to loose but my first goal is to fit into my summer goals.

Apparently I can't upload my tracker till I have had at least 25 posts.

I did not have the best of weeks. "Gained" 4.4 pounds. I know I did not eat 14000 extra calories, so I am hoping for a whoosh. Usually I get a nice whoosh with my TOM, but not this time

I feel that I may be getting sick. My throat is slightly sore and just have that pre sickness malaise feeling, ugh. 'This the season, right.

I am hoping that I am wrong

If I stay healthy, my plan is to hit the gym 5-6 times this week; swim, weights, treadmill and aerobic classes. Plus walk my pup. Her leg was sore yesterday, she has been having some knee issues lately; I'll see if she is limping today. We may try to take a 3 mile hike.

Today is my volunteer day at The Finnish Center, it will also be my fast day. I fast from dinner to dinner once per week, or at least try to

I hope everyone will have a nice weigh in day, today.

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!

Welcome, Arwa4u and Pumpkinfield!!!

Pumpkinfield- Actually, not just the posts, you also have to wait 20 days before the signature feature is enabled. So sometime around April the 5th, depending what time you signed up, you should be able to finally have a ticker. Look at it as a NSV (non-scale victory.)

Sum38- fingers are crossed that you're not sick! Sending you some booster vibes to ward whatever it is off! hope your pup gets better too.

Olivia- that is awesome about being able to fit back in your jeans but I hear ya on some slack, I prefer that too.

Diana- way to go on your 2lbs down!!!

TOM showed up on Saturday so I am avoiding the scale this week since I really do not want to see the 160s again, lol.

Hope everyone had a good weekend and will have a good WI!

Tonight I'll post my Mar 17th number.

I'm essentially fasting since Saturday morning and losing a pound a day so I can reach my goal in about 15 days if I stay the course. I'm surprised I have enough energy to get out of bed but I don't notice any energy/strength loss. It'll probably show up in lack of endurance.

Otherwise, my Excel computations based on the previous 28 days of measurements show that my goal is 20 weeks away.

Just for laughs I'll try to stay the course.

Thank you for the welcome glad to be here. I have no idea what the signature is yet either. My post was suppose to say summer clothes not goals. Oh well that's what I get for writing at 11pm.

I'm feeling good today went water jogging this morning. Hadn't worked out in a month due to illness.

Not going to weigh myself till end of week. Have a great week everyone.

Fell off the wagon last night and now climbing back on. I'm at 165.6.
When I hit 165, maybe this week, I think I'll throw a party.

170 to 165.6 in the last 10 days = 0.44 lb/day.
165.6 to 150 is 15.6 lbs, 15.6/0.44 = 35 days from now.

This weight loss is more like a marathon than a sprint.

At 29 days into this, the up/down loss during each week of the first 20 days has gotten much less. I guess that's good.

I've been goofing off on the weightlifting and the aerobics. I guess I'm waiting to see my abs under the fat.

The Navy Seals say that 450 Cals/hr is an easy workout and 750 is hard but depending on what machine I'm on, I get different readings. 300 Cals in 30 minutes on the stair climber is pretty much my current limit.

With the leg press I can do 2x my body weight but I saw a guy the other day who was doing several reps of 750 lbs. Where do these people come from?

Hi everyone! Congrats to everyone on a great week I need to kick my butt into gear!

I'm finally starting to feel better. 2 lbs down this week, but still 1 lb heavier than my starting weight. My friend introduced me to Melaleuca products and I'm loving the vitamins and the glucose control shakes. I finally feel like I'm getting my energy back (take that thyroid )! I've also started using the Renew lotion, and my eczema is going away!! I can finally show my engagement ring off without feeling embarrased (I have eczema on my knuckles, and it's worse on my left hand). Hoping I can get into a regular exercise routine now that I have some energy. My fiance has a meeting at work on Thursday about the reorganization. Praying for some good news

If anyone is interested in the products, you can PM me for more info. This is the only thing I've found so far that has helped me to feel normal.

Default Any nutritionists here?

My calories in are about zero and my activity level burns me about zero calories, my BMR = 1500 Cals/day (from a Web calculator) and I am losing about 1400 Cals/day, 0.4 lbs/day.

1400 vs. 1500 might be due to experimental error, so, my weight loss is only due to my BMR.

Right?

Just curious as to how long it took to gain 15 lbs. Do you have a record of the days and the weights?
By now I know how long it takes me to lose just 5 lbs.
