gw: 161

week 1: 174.6 good start
week 2: 176.4
week 3: 173.6

jcatron243 10-19-2009 10:59 AM

Onestar~thanks for starting the thread! I'm sorry the scale is up for you, get in your water, and stick to your program and it will come back off!

Week 1~148
Week 2~145
Week 3~144
Week 4~142
Week 5~141
Week 6~139
Week7~142 :(

Ok the scale was up this morning, but it wasn't unexpected. It is weird how sensitive the scale is for me these days. But, I'll move on, workout and drink tons of water and make sure I stick to my calories.

Kids have their Costumes, I almost got one, but I hate spending money on something that I will only wear once. Mak will be a pop princess and Tommy is going to be a Storm trooper. DH bought some candy so I ate some. Really it wasn't that good :) I won't eat anymore today.

W 100 oz
E 60 minutes
E 1200 CLEAN CALS!
D keep it to clean eating, (the best I can, I am out of most of my fruit I need to go get some)

Nixmom 10-19-2009 11:54 AM

Finally some progress ladies!

Week 1 = 209.6
Week 2 = 209.2
Week 3 = 206.6
Week 4 = 211.2
Week 5 = 206.6
Week 6 = 206
Week 7 = 202.2

Here's to an OP day. No dairy, no fruits for me for the next 5 weeks. Got my protein shakes in order, my snacks lined up and my dinners waiting to be thrown together. I cant wait to get to the end of this challenge and see some true progress. It will honestly be my first time having a decent loss. Hopefully TOM doesnt botch it!

I am heading back to the last thread to post this link so we dont lose anyone! Be good!

Nixmom 10-19-2009 11:56 AM

Oh weed for the week!

W:64+ a day
E: 1600 or less - no dairy no fruit!
E: Walk dog (quick 30 min) and Bootcamp
D: Jen says I can do anything for 6 weeks!

jcatron243 10-19-2009 12:17 PM

Kris~Thats a great loss!

Wow my workout was good! But my arms are really weak today. I wonder if its because at the b-day party I took care of my 4 year old nephew (he is a big boy, I would guess 55 pounds) I packed him around a lot in the pool.

Holyteror 10-19-2009 08:19 PM

Hey ladies.....

well we got the news friday, we got orders to stay here @ this base for another 4 years. Not too sure if i'm thrilled about it b/c now they've changed DH's job....and he could very well be shipped off with an army unit for a year if they felt like it. I'm bummed b/c I've only been home to TX 2.5 days in 7.5 years. My folks haven't bothered to come out at all. Not even when tickets were paid for. I don't think it's too much to ask for, especially if I'm paying for the tickets to come! But I'm emotional and hormonal. don't mind me LOL

i don't want my friends from home seeing me like this. I promised a friend I'd come home and give him a ride in my pink cadillac when I earned one. I'm giving myself a year to get my butt in gear. That means I've gotta be @ goal by then. What a shocker...new car, successful business, wearing smaller jeans than when I was in HS. *that* would be awesome. And five minutes later DH would see me and I'd be knockered up LOL

I feel very bloated today....TOM is on the way, my MIL is on the way.....HELP!!!!!

Gotta fix some better food. Last night I made a big pot of beef stew.....lots of veggies and plenty of beef. I just like to eat it. I wore a shirt today that made me sad when I saw me in the mirror. Tonight, even if it's just for 15 minutes, I'm working out, doing *something* I don't care what it is.

Ok gotta get back to work, will be home soon :)
*hugs*

Week 6-195
Week 7-190

I ended up having my cheat day 2 days early (on Sat. instead of Mon.). I had 3 pieces of pizza and it wasn't order out it was frozen. Plus no chocolate. Not much of a cheat day! I didn't do my exercise Sat. or Sun due to lack of sleep. I did however get back on my diet after my cheat day which I haven't done in a LONG time plus I got in some exercise today.
Gotta get to bed early tonight so there are no excuses tomorrow. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

jcatron243 10-19-2009 11:09 PM

Amy, :hug: I wish you could get back to Texas for a while. Sorry about the MIL coming, I dread it when any of the 3 are around (yes 3).

Jelly~I had to get rid of cheat days because they would turn into weeks. Then I wouldn't workout and then I would gain LOTS of weight. Your WI was awsome congrats on the 5 pound loss!

I got in an extra 30 minutes of cardio tonight, :) It felt good. But, Halloween candy is bad~! I have been getting into it, :( It doesn't even taste very good.

onestar 10-20-2009 12:41 AM

today was the first day i actually had the energy to exercise. i had an awesome evening with my daughter. when we got home we went for a walk in the neighborhood and pointed out all the halloween decorations people had out. then we came home and decorated the pumpkin i bought for her a week ago. i've never carved a pumpkin and dont really want to attempt it this year. i just drew a face on it with a sharpie and she "colored" the back and put stickers on it. then we put it out in the front yard for all to see. put her to bed and did my exercise. it was nice. i was sick this weekend so i didnt feel like i got any quality time with her, so today was much needed.

Nixmom 10-20-2009 01:01 AM

Quick check in... survived WK2D1 with a different instructor. She made us do wall squats and stood on our legs. I seriously was crying. I want to be stronger and its not coming fast enough. This sucks in the most good for me way ever!

Headed to bed. Hope all is well!

Holyteror 10-20-2009 10:24 AM

Morning ladies....I am so wiped out it's not even funny. I didn't even do anything! I don't get it. Maybe something's coming back again....office cold or something. who knows.

My MIL will be here Thursday after I get off work. Maybe we can do a workout dvd or something. I'm pretty sure she'll be up for that.

thinking i might grill some chicken and throw together a big salad for today....

jcatron243 10-20-2009 10:40 AM

Onestar~I'm glad you got to spend some time with your daughter.

Amy~I hope you aren't getting sick. I Hate feeling worn out.

Kris~she was standing on your legs? Thats awful. Ofcourse I hate squats and wall squats are totally worse than anything for me.

Tommy isn't sleeping very well again. I hate it when he does this, it wears us all out. He was up four times last night, he's in a good mood this morning though. (but I'm not)

W 80 oz
E 60 minutes
E 1200 cals
D stay away from halloween candy

editing: got my workout done, I didn't interval run today I set the tread at 5.5 mph with random incline settings. The workout was good, it was easier on my knees (I think). It took me 34 minutes to run 5k. (I have been doing it on average 32 minutes). I ran into a friend of mine that I haven't seen in a while, she was sweet telling me how good I look (of course I am filthy with sweat at the time :) ) She is doing the gyms loser contest, I am glad she is able to do it this year!

Holyteror 10-20-2009 02:12 PM

Hey Jen,
I hope not either. I haven't really pushed myself, maybe I should. I should really focus on getting some time in for exercise. I didn't even focus on getting food made for lunch :( I got so worked up over a quickie project this morning and i got here later than I wanted to. I ate the last of the beef stew for breakfast...that should hold me fine til lunch. I have my business meeting tonight and then i'll be spending the rest of the time cleaning and getting ready for MIL to get here. I'd put on another pot roast except DH didn't eat much of it, and i don't get it, it was GREAT!! I guess I'll have the last of that when I get home for dinner.

i brought in one of my workout books and i'm gonna go over the eating plan in there again and try to regain focus on eating and walking.

jellybeansss76 10-20-2009 06:52 PM

Holy- Sounds like you are motivated! I hope you have a great visit with MIL.

Jeni-Thanks! I'm doing my best. I really need to quit the cheat day though before it sabotages my diet. Maybe I should allow myself some chocolate once a week. A cheat snack instead of a cheat meal.

Onestar-We purchased these pop in eyes, ears, nose, etc. for pumpkins from Walmart. They look like Mr.Potato head pieces. They are easy to do and make the pumpkins very cute.

Kris-Sounds like you got your a$$ kicked..lol. I need someone to stand on my legs when I do a wall squat! Wait...I haven't ever done a wall squat. I need to try that. How long should one do a wall squat? ..and be able to walk the next day.

Well last night I calculated my calories and realized I had only eaten 160. I guess I had so much on my mind and have been so busy I didn't eat as much as I thought. I got it up to around 500 before bed. I have only eaten about 100 so far today so I need to get busy. I hope you all are having a wonderful day!
My WEED for the rest of the day.
W-some is better than none.
E-45-90mins on Gazelle

jcatron243 10-20-2009 08:39 PM

Jelly, make sure you eat atleast 1200 calories. If you don't your body will start to hold onto the fat stores and you will lose muscle instead.

mtiger 10-20-2009 11:04 PM

WEEK 1: the week of the Bat: 256.5 Where did that come from??? I was 181.2
WEEK 2: the week of the Ghost: 181.2

WEEK 8: the week of witch:
WEIGH OUT, Saturday, October 31st...TRICK? OR TREAT?


I have been so busy the last few days. I didn't get here to post and I haven't worked out. I went to an event tonight that my sis organizes. FOOD FEST. I ate dinner before I went so I kept my nibbles to one samll sliver of cake, a cookie and a few bites of other peoples samplings. Hope it wasn't too bad. Tomorrow I kick it back into gear. It is a walk/jog day. It'a also mid-cyle time so I am going to work hard this week.

Nixmom 10-20-2009 11:47 PM

Hey chicks! Day 2 of sub trainer. Sounds like tomorrow and thursday another girl will be instructing because our little Kelli is sick. CRAP!

I have been spot on diet wise which is good because I cannot keep up in this class. I have double jointed arms, a weak hip and ankle, and my lovely tail bone that wants to remind me balancing on it is no bueno. My shoulders are killing me, I'm craving pizza, and TOM and fiance are both due home friday. I am a party waiting to happen.

Mtiggie - smart move on eating before the event! I know your mid crap will melt away as it always does. Eat lots of celery for water retention killer! I'm going to bathe in it :D

Jen - This, honestly, is my first hardcore no excuses go at this weight loss thing. I finallly quit talking and I am hoping it shed enough lbs and build enough strength that I can keep up. It aint easy pushing 200lbs of fat around.

Hi to all you other girls! I need to go drink my lovely shake, and unwind. Be good to yourselves even if feels bad. No pain, no tight non giggly butts and arms! Got it!

JasonsLea 10-21-2009 12:50 AM

:wave: girls!

I hope you all are doing great. Sorry I've been MIA. Working two jobs has fried my brain, my days are running together! :dizzy: Oddly, even though I'm totally sleep deprived, my intake has been very good. SP says that I've gone over my calories but most of it is rather healthy, hardly any junk so I don't care. Tomorrow should be my last day working at the VA. I'm slightly pensive but elated! :D This is like a whole new chapter of my life about to be opened. I can do this! :goodvibes

Week 1: 263.2
Week 2: 265.4
Week 3: 262.8
Week 4: 262.8
Week 5: 265.8
Week 6: 264.6
Week 7: 264.4

Holyteror 10-21-2009 10:58 AM

*snort* Nixie guess what, our cycles are synced LMAO!!! MIL is due tomorrow after work, and TOM is due the next day. Definitely a party waiting to happen here :D

jcatron243 10-21-2009 11:15 AM

Nixmom 10-21-2009 01:23 PM

Onederland Today!
 
I SQUEEZED INTO ONDERLAND TODAY! 199.8. Not an official weigh in (til Sunday) but a victory none the less. So far, I have not revisited any numbers I have hit in the last week, but TOM is approaching - and apparently planning to visit California (see HT's last post).

Jen - you are my hero no sleep but working out anyway. That lack of sleep thing will make me cave the quickest. I needs me rest!

HT - Too Funny! I am looking forward to the FH coming home. TOM can kiss my... and my F-MIL is lovable. We often choose to hang out with her. So you win on party time for sure!

Tiggie - hows work? Hows workouts?

Mavie, Shari, Grazie, Sunny, Jelly, One, Nchellie..... **HUGS**

jcatron243 10-21-2009 02:13 PM

Kris, YAY for YOU!! ONEDERLAND!!! I hope this bootcamp torture works for you.

Skip a workout? Me?? If I allow myself to skip one workout, I skip two and it just snowballs (so does my eating). I am finally dipping into the 130s and I am afraid I am going to sabatoge myself so I am working extra hard. I barely made it through my workout though. I did my interval running with no problem, but I just didn't have it in me to finish my strength training. Maybe it is because there were SO MANY PEOPLE there but I skipped 2 machines and hopped on the bike to finish off my workout.

Ok gotta get my man some applesauce.

Holyteror 10-21-2009 02:44 PM

YAY FOR WONDERLAND....I need to work to get myself there again. I miss it. I have clothes that miss me! LOL

jellybeansss76 10-21-2009 04:33 PM

TOM is here and worse than ever! This has been the craziest of weeks so far. A woman I knew and use to work with was shot and killed Monday(stuff like that rarely happens around here). Plus, a girl came over to spend the night with Madison Friday and her mom finally showed up Sunday evening with all the girls things and basically said "here you take her I can't do it anymore." She has lost her house, car, etc. I don't mind because I have a big heart and I believe every child should have the same opportunities as the next, but apparently all of this has taken a toll on me. So here I am behind on school work, another child to raise, and apparently my husband has decided to try for laziest man on earth. What the **** is this world coming too?! I'm going to try and not have any type of breakdown today..lol. Sorry to vent I had to. I'll survive. I hope you all are having a fabulous day!!
My WEED for the day
W-32oz
E-TOM
E-1200
D-I need to remind myself that it's okay to relax and take a break once in awhile.

mtiger 10-21-2009 08:14 PM

WOW!! How random, to just dump a child off and say take her. that just doesn't even make sense to me. Hpe you can help out.

Nix- Hey, who cares if it isn't "official". I will take a good number anyday, even if it is brief.

Today was cheat day, I guess. My friend brought pizza to work and we got to hang out for a while. that was nice. Then ex bought McDonalds and I had a double cheeseburger. I did walk/jog 3 miles tonight. I even went 1.2 in one stretch and acouple .5 stretches. That was really pretty good for me.

I am hoping mid-cycle goes away soon and maybe I can get down to a new low number before TOM.

Jeni- I understand about those cheat meals. It can be dangerous. I also understand about missing workouts. Not having worked out in 2 days, I really needed to work out today.

jellybeansss76 10-21-2009 08:23 PM

It doesn't make sense to me either, besides the fact she doesn't have the means and she knows we do. I have known the lady for six years and couldn't imagine it until it happened. I on the other hand haven't been more than 6 hours total without my child since conception. I guess she knows she will be well taken care of until she gets back on her feet. The girl is 10 years old so she knows what is going on and she loves it here so we will see what happens.

jcatron243 10-21-2009 08:25 PM

Jelly~OMG OMG OMG! :hug: seriously you need it. You do have a big heart. I'm sorry about the woman you know that is scary enough, but having someone just give you their child? wow.

JasonsLea 10-22-2009 01:49 AM

Jelly ~ Seriously, you deserve a medal or something. How amazing are you, taking in that little girl out of the blue?! :hug: :hug: <-----That one is for her and her mama.

Nixmom 10-22-2009 02:46 AM

Jelly - you are not alone. One of my employees went through the same thing 30 years ago and ended up adopting the girl. Seriously - sleep over and mom never came back or contacted until MONTHS later and didnt want her back then - not that they would have turned her back over to the flake without a court order. My coworker adopted her and gained a loving family and siblings from it. Also made her some grandbabies. Sometimes blessings seem backwards, eh?

I skipped class tonight girls. Feeling horrible for it, but my tummy is tore up and I had a gaggle of business paperwork to get done before FH gets home tomorrow. Food has been POP for 4 days though~ back to class tomorrow night. Dang... its late!

jcatron243 10-22-2009 11:37 AM

Good Morning ladies. Another night with no sleep. DH woke me up before he left and I was like NO WAY! I only got like 4 hours last night. UGG.

Jelly~Both of my little sisters were adopted that way. The youngest was 4 months old (and has lived with my mom since then, she is 14) and the older one was 2 and lived with my aunt until she was 11 then with my mom since then (she is almost 17).

Kris, get your stuff done, and get back to class tonight! You can do it!

Mindy, mid-cycle gain will go away and you will be back to your low in no time!

Amy~you can do it. Fit in little bits of exercise here and there and you will be suprised how much energy you get!


W 80 oz
E 60 minutes (I don't know if I have much weight lifting in me today, I may do mostly cardio)

Dbuy some good stuff for lunches and dinners for the next week.

editing: workout was terrible. I couldn't find my headphones so I used a different pair they fell out every time i moved my head. ERRR it was irritating. So I quit after 45 minutes I plan on going back before swim lessons to run.

jellybeansss76 10-22-2009 02:23 PM

Thanks for all the support ladies! I really appreciate it!
I've put on my girdle panties...you know the ones...and I'm going to get my workout in today. TOM or not! I ate my 1200 cals yesterday and I'm starting to feel a lot better. I am so ready to do this!

I never did get in my second workout yesterday, homework and bloody noses kept me home.

W 64 oz
E extra laps
E 1200 cals
D be happy i have a job.

Nixmom 10-23-2009 10:34 AM

Oh Jen..... That is so frustrating! I made the mistake with Nic (my son) of driving him to sleep on rough nights and it worked so well I did it multiple nights and pretty soon, that was the only way to get him to sleep. Took a while break the habit, and tested every nerve I had. I hope Tommy is sound asleep tonight so you can get some rest.

Jelly - thats right chick, back to it. There will always be something in life that comes up. Pull up your bootstraps and work the chaos around you!

HolyT - I reservations for you... in onederland. Just start walking 15 minutes a day. Thats it. You'll get here and I promise to wait here for you. I can't return to Two's Town or I would come get you and yank you out. You can do it! You are on the cusp!

Mtiggie - Fiance is back. Got back last night. Love the boy. Miss my quiet house already. Went to class, got home, he was home, tried to go to bed... and well... then he wanted to watch TV for 3 hours. I got to sleep about midnight. I have been in bed asleep by 9pm 90% of the time he was away. Alone ~ not lonely. Just an excerpt from my life. Enjoy YOUR time.

Mavie Baby - where are ya?

K girls - bootcamp last night was a bunch of running. I am SSOOOOOO slow. My legs felt like cement pillars and I could hardly move them. Today, hip flexors are killing me. But the scale is steadfast at 199. Come on Sunday (weigh in). Off to work chicks. BE GOOD!

Holyteror 10-23-2009 02:13 PM

girls i'm ready to cry. just go hide in a cave til the weekend's over and cry. my MIL is driving me NUTS. DH didn't vacuum, so she's nagging me about hairballs in the floor (2 goldens, they shed a lot!!!), dinner, when do i get home from work, can she have a house key, kitchen pick up, stuff being on my dining room table, where do we eat, do i have tv trays, etc. I ate too much yesterday, breakfast was a bust :( I was so stressed this morning i was nauseous, i forgot my sunglasses and had to go get more....they're not the best ones, i have a headache, and i just want to hide. DH wasn't all that helpful or social....she's whiny b/c the other brother and his family went camping for the weekend so she's going to wait til monday or tuesday to leave so she can see them.

I think the main reason she even stopped was to see them. And DH? Hiding in his room to smoke and to play on his computer....leaving ME to babysit his mother.

she complained about the stuff in the sunroom, mostly boxes of stuff that still needs unpacking, stuff that needs to get tossed.....she says "oh look, all stuff that should go to the dump!!! you should just take it there....." Next she'll complain about the condition of the yards, and complain about the dogs too.

I feel so stressed out :(

Nixmom 10-23-2009 03:12 PM

HT!!!!! Tell her you realize that your life is busy and chaotic in different ways than hers, and she is free to go stay in a hotel if the conditions in your home do not meet her standards. Then shove the Hoover up your mans....

sorry... I just got fired up.

Holyteror 10-23-2009 03:23 PM

LMAO I am ready to!! LOLOLOL

jcatron243 10-23-2009 10:29 PM

Oh Amy, I know exactly how you feel. but DH's grandma (she raised him) will pick up a piece of lint off my carpet and give it to one of the kids and say this goes to the garbage. If she stayed here I would probably leave.

Work today was very stressful. I kept thinking~atleast I have a job~~its the only thing that is keeping me there.

Makenna is going to an overnighter with the YMCA tomorrow~Tommy wants to go, but is too young. DH and Tommy will have a MAN day tomorrow.

TOM arrived today, I hate it when it starts shifting around like crazy.

I will post more in the morning.

jcatron243 10-24-2009 06:23 AM

Not much to add to yesterdays post. I got a bit more sleep so I am happy.

Nixmom 10-24-2009 11:31 AM

Good morning all.

Not much here either Jen. I slept decent last night with the exception of trying to roll over. My hips and butt hurt from wed still. Holding steady at 199 and battling TOM too. Sounds like me you and HT in the same boat!

Hope all have a good day... I'm off to make breakfast.
