But I'm guessing by this time next week I'll be pain free when doing them. My muscles will be as good as Popeye's by then.
wow impressive!!

i hear ya! i also am good and then get so hungry that i eat everything, even just standing up!

me too!! i've been losing and gaining the same few pounds over and over again these past 7 weeks and i realised today WHY. i looked over my food journal. and have realised i've been having very high calorie BINGE days 2/3 days a week !
i have got to get a control over my binge eating. i've realised im a binge eater and over eater. so im gonna try to go "clean" for 26 days. 26 days because thats the number of days till my cousin from america comes to stay with me for a few weeks, and we have a competition going hehe. i want to get down to at least 155lbs before she comes.

so today is a brand new day and im wiping the slate clean! im holding myself accountable and added it to my signature as motivation. i might even have a look over at the over eating threads/forums.

also im gonna aim to eat around 1400/1500 calories and get my calorie deficient through exercise. i've tried eating 1200/1300 calories, i do it for a couple of days then the next day i overeat. so its not working for me. and plus jillian always says when you only have the last 20lbs to lose, eat your BMR calories and workout hard!

i also ordered her book "making the cut" this morning i thought i needed something to kick me into high gear!

i cant afford a full gym membership at the moment, so will only be able to do the exercises that i can do without equipment - but i can go to a local very simple gym and pay about 6 for each session- so i might do that like once awhile for a change..

My new focus is exercise and strength, so I have found a different site and groups that I think will help me reach my goals.

Hugs to all, and I wish you all the best in reaching your goals.
awww going to miss you Mercy!! good luck with your new goals!!

I had a particularly bad food day myself. I think I'm somewhere at 2500 or so if not slightly more. I did ride my bike/trainer today for an hour and 15 mins but I don't think it was enough to cancel out my bad behavior. I'm not weighing in next week though I'll be out of town so hopefully it won't show up 2 weeks from now. Heh.
hehe good on ya for riding your bike to cancel it out.

Yeah, yeah Echo, Diva was asking about you at the other site. I said you were with TOM

You know where to find me, and I will still be around, so I am sure I will run into somewhere.

Miss you

[QUOTE=dream710;3018269]Mercy-good luck to you!


Thank you!

I think Mercy03 is about down to her goal weight, and so was switching her focus from weight loss to maintainance/strength training. I understand her not wanting to slow the team down, but I for one love to see people who have made it to goal (sometimes I feel like it is impossible) and would love for her to stick around. But she needs to do what is best for herself.

Spot on, thank you Montecristo

Good Morning Blusers!! I finally feel back in the game today. My sciatic pain is gone but now my back hurts. Probably shouldn't have gone to the chiro. I am not really suppose to have any manual manipulation due to spinal stenosis in my neck. But I can live with a sore back. Just keeping a heating pad on it.

Congrats to our winners this week!
Idealmuse - 4.0lbs (2.07%)-Way to go!!!
mebhealthy - 2.8lbs (1.83%)
econ nerd - 4.0lbs (1.72%)
Mercy03 - 2.0lbs (1.43%)

Echo is so agree with your post: me too!! i've been losing and gaining the same few pounds over and over again these past 7 weeks and i realised today WHY. i looked over my food journal. and have realised i've been having very high calorie BINGE days 2/3 days a week !

so today is a brand new day and im wiping the slate clean! im holding myself accountable and added it to my signature as motivation. i might even have a look over at the over eating threads/forums.


That is me to a tee. I started in January doing this BL challenges at 184.5 got down to 172 in April then dh got sick and had to have 6 months of treatment and it really threw me for a loop. But I am tired of the excuses. I am an emotional eater who eats way too much. I did OA at one point in my life and it really helped I just didn't stick with it. But I think it is time again to realize I have a real problem with food. If working out could get me thin I would have been there years ago. I love working out but I always disqualify what I do by overeating. I'm with you on the clean eating. I am starting it tomorrow since I already had a sticky bun today. I want to stay with it until the 12th of Dec when we leave for Disney.

Mercy-Hate to see you go. You are always so funny. Wish you the best and I know you will reach all of your goals!

I think we are just going to the 11 pm sale then home for some sleep until 4 or 5 when most of the other stores open. It will be so much fun to go with your dd. We have been going for about 3 years now. Actually we all go. My sis, niece, my two dd, my ds & his fiance. Then we all meet up for breakfast around 8. My dh used to go when the kids were little but now it is too much for him. Men!!! lol!

Good evening Blue Team. I'm so far behind I'm not doing personals but I've read every single post. But I will mention that I'll miss you Mercy.

I've been too tired to post the last week. Taking care of Baby, even if it's just a few hours a day, has got me wiped out in the evenings. I'm feeling my age and not liking it one bit. Fortunately, I'm still getting in my walk in the mornings and I'm eating on plan. I weighed in this morning but didn't lose anything this week and that's how it goes some weeks. I've already lost 14 pounds since this challenge started and I'm hoping to lose at least 2 more by the end.

Oh, and before I forget, congratulations to week 9's Biggest Loser and Runners-up. Well done.

Must go do my push-ups before I flake out on the bed.

Have a good weekend, all.

Aw, thanks Retire. I'll still be here, just not part of the group. I'll be on the fitness and strength side if you care to come on over for some dares and exercises.

Thanks for being so kind and a wonderful motivator for me
