Great job everyone, I'm so proud of all of us for our commitment. I lost 3 lbs last week. So now I am 143. I went to a wedding this weekend and gave myself the allowance to enjoy myself and have my cake and eat it too !! Point is, I don't expect to lose weight this week. I have been eating a very low amount of calories/day so my metabolism has slowed considerably and I really can't lose weight if I don't eat very little. However over the next 3 weeks I am going to increase my calories/day gradually until I can once again achieve losses at more reasonable calorie levels. So it's likely I won't have any losses again until next month. I am okay with that because it's what needs to be done, and I will still be toning my body and getting into better shape through exercise at least.
I am definitely going to post until the end also. I won't be at my ultimate goal weight by June 21. I am excited to keep seeing how we do throughout the summer

I'm kind of anxious too. My next weigh-in is tomorrow morning (I weigh every 2 weeks) and I'm getting positively silly about it. I didn't want to eat more than 2000 calories today, and I got freaked out when I realized how much sodium the taco shells I ate today had, all because I'm a little afraid of water retention tomorrow. I keep trying to tell myself that even if I haven't lost anything in the past two weeks, if I stay on plan it WILL come off. But I'm getting rather silly about it anyway.

197.2 this morning. Woo! I am hoping I can make it to 195 as I revised. I am a bit disappointed that I didn't do so great in the beginning of this challenge. But what's done is done!

km25, nice loss. I'm at 187 now, 4 pounds down from 2 weeks ago. Woot! I might just make it to 175 before August 24th.

Awesome progress Megwini, Wormwooddoll, Km25 and anyone I may have missed!

Km25, I think it is very wise of you to increase your calories. I was a little worried about the level you were at as it didn't sound very healthy. However, I am no expert on weight loss, and I didn't want to criticize your plan and offend you. I think even if you don't see a loss, you will definitely still lose plenty of inches to compensate if you keep with the strength training.

So, I weighed in today and I was down to 204. Since, I am expecting TOM (2 days late) I will take it. Still there is no way I am going to get to 199 by Sunday and I accept that. But at least I made some serious progress in my ultimate goal. I think I have lost 21 pounds since I started this challenge and a total of 65 so far. I am proud of myself, but I saw a picture of me that was taken last week and I still look horrible. I hate how I can be okay with my appearance and feel good about myself when I look in the mirror, and then I see a picture taken the very same day and it's a whole different story. I am still a big fat ugly mess! Ugh I keep wanting to take progress photos to post, but it doesn't look like I have made any LOL I rarely get comments on my weightloss. I keep thinking after every 10 pounds I lose people will notice, but nobody every says anything. Oh well, just more motivation to keep going!

WTG megwini! 4lbs is awesome!!

Sunkisses you're so close to ONEderland! Feelin' anxious yet? Haha. And I know how you feel with the pictures. I went camping and after seeing some of the pictures, I got very depressed. I can't believe I still look huge. But we'll be okay! Just keep our heads up high!

You've definitely come far though, amybebes! In a thing like weight loss, "almost" making it to a goal is almost as beneficial as making it there! Congrats on the 13.5 lb loss so far.
Sunkisses and WormwoodDoll, I guess I don't have this problem too much, since one of my biggest problems is that I'm tall so you don't notice my weight quite as much, so I let it get out of control. So pictures aren't *too* bad, but once in a while I get one taken where the angle makes me look REALLY fat and I'm just like *writhes*

Alas I didn't make my goal of 30 lbs but I have lost approximately 15 in 11 weeks. Darn Plateaus. Plus I'm pretty close to making the weight loss 10% challange at work. Weigh ins are this week Monday through Friday.

195.7 today - .7 off from my revised goal of 195. Haha. Well one thing I have improved: my social eating! I went out to eat Friday AND I went to the movies AND I got ice cream AND I ate popcorn at the movies. All for 1600 calories. AND I got down to 195.7 from 197.2 last week. Boo-ya.

Okay and since some of us are sticking around until the end of August [I hope]...My goal is 175 by September first.

Congrats!!!!


I forgot to look at the scale today, but I'm sure it's the same. Ugh. It's my own fault for not exercising lately. I guess I got tired of trying so hard. But I will continue this and one day I will start trying harder again. Hopefully tonight.

This is random and completely off-topic but I just wanted to mention... AngelsDust, you're really so beautiful. Looking at your picture, you kind of take my breath away. You have such a captivating beauty and gorgeous face, especially your lips. You're just so stunning! I don't usually see people I find so gorgeous that I get blown away, but you are one of them! I only say that because I sincerely mean it! Damn girl, you got it going on!

WormwoodDoll, congrats on not going all out at the movies! Social eating is the thing I struggle with most. I find eating on my own and at home fairly easy, but it's when I'm with others I feel most tempted. Congrats! I know it ain't easy!

I know what you mean about seeing a recent picture of yourself. I feel the exact same way. I feel proud of myself for coming this far and then someone takes my picture and I can't believe I look so horrible. It's really discouraging and encouraging at the same time. Discouraging because I have so much more work to do and encouraging because it makes me determined to get farther.

I don't get comments either. My grandma will once in a while in a not-so-subtle way wrap her hands around my waist when we hug to feel how small my stomach is now. She doesn't bother me about eating sugar around her anymore. I think people are afraid to comment because weight is a big issue.

BTW, I think losing 65 pounds is amazing. You should celebrate that as much as possible because it's a huge accomplishment!!

That is such a beautiful compliment!! THANK YOU!! You made me feel sooo much better about myself!

I can't seem to get this site to upload a newer picture of myself. I've been trying for weeks and I've resized i,t but that doesn't work. I'll try again.

I keep thinking I'm NOT losing weight, but then I see I did beat this challenge! Woo-Hoo! I guess slow-and-steady stays the course. It gives me hope I can do this even though it seems soooooooooo slow.
