Wow! Loved jumping on here and seeing so many of you doing well.
I am down 3lbs for the month. I am finally going in the right direction.

My daughter had surgery last week and life has been stressful/busy which normally derails me. (like the first half of this month) I think I finally found what I need to help me succeed. Hubby bought me a new phone last week and I immediately bought an app to help see what calories I am actually consuming. I had NO idea all the little bites were so calorie laden. ACK! Anyways, it helps keep me in check and I love being able to just scan bar codes of products for nutritional information.

Yay ChickieChicks on 30lbs!!! :celebrate::carrot::carrot: That is a huge accomplishment! I love the idea of a personal hundred day challenge. I might try that after my vacation next month.

PGHgal and Chickadee, you are both so close to goal! Great job!

Loli and envelope, You are doing great!

LGW Congratulations on hitting your August goal!!! :carrot::carrot:

chickadee32 08-25-2011 09:57 PM

lene: I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's sugery; I hope she's doing well now. I am super glad though to hear the scale is moving in the right direction for you! Keep at it with that app the rest of the month - there's still time to lose a bit more!


I had a very unexpected whoosh on the scale this morning and am now at 189.2 - and so I've met my August goal!! Phew, I'm very relieved; I really thought I might not make it this month. For September I'll be setting myself up with a big goal - but I'm still hoping I can drop a touch more and get a little further ahead before August ends. :D

Let's make the last few days of August count, ladies!!

Congrats chickadee & LGW on reaching your goals!!!

Looks like I am next to join you ... I weighed in at 264.0 this morning. And that's even with TOM coming in the next couple days, so I can't wait to see what it will be next week. I'd like to get a few pounds in before the end of the month if I can ... I'd love to be at/under 250 by Oct 1st. :D

puneri 08-26-2011 10:08 AM

Hey everone,
Yest weight was 164.8...was delighted to see 164 on the scale.

nikkidee 08-26-2011 10:23 AM

chickadee32 08-27-2011 04:47 AM

Woohoo, I was thrilled to jump on this thread and find that more people had met their August goals!! CONGRATULATIONS PghGal and boatingmommy!! :carrot: Nicely done!!

nikkidee: You're doing great!! Keep going and see how far you can get!

puneri: Awesome!! I can't yet even fathom seeing a number that low on the scale, lol.


If the hurricane doesn't force the cancellation of my flight, I'll be leaving tomorrow afternoon on business for the week. I won't have a ton of time to check in, but I'll get here when I can and finish up the thread for the month and start the September thread. Good luck these last few days everyone! :)

You're almost there envelope!!!

chickadee32 08-31-2011 07:22 PM

CONGRATULATIONS martini!! :carrot: It's your goal, and you can define it any way you wish. Reaching for it, striving for it, and making it happen is what counts - and YOU DID exactly that!! Gosh it's awesome to finish the month so much lower than where you began, huh?? :)

I hope everyone else is finishing the month on a high note as well! I'm going to get the September thread started here shortly, and then I'll be back to finish this one off when I can (I am travelling for work, and so time is limited this week!).

Checking in! We went on vacation to OH, and came back to an earthquake and then Hurricane Irene!!!

I weighed myself this morning for my final weigh-in.

It was 139.0! Finally in the 130s, and just squeaked past my August goal.

GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!!

Katybug 09-03-2011 12:40 PM

congratulations everyone on your achievements in August!! I am finally checking in.... it was a busy month, constant out of town friends and family visiting, which meant a lot of eating out, entertaining, busy schedules which made working out a challenge, etc. My goal was to end the month at 286, which would mean losing 10% off my starting weight..... unfortunately I didn't make it. I started off the month gaining, until I reached a peak of 297..... getting dangerously close to the 300 mark, eek! Part of that was TOM but it got my attention, and I tried really hard but only ended up at 291, which is, I believe, only 3 lbs less than where I as at the beginning of the month. I was pretty disappointed, but my boyfriend pointed out that in the 15 weeks I have been on this weight loss journey, I have averaged -1.8 lbs. per week! My hope was to lose 2 lbs per week, so that's pretty good.... made me happy, anyway!

So not a very successful August, but I am optimistic about September :)

chickadee32 09-05-2011 03:20 AM

ChickieChicks: Huge congratulations on making your August goal!!! :carrot: :carrot: I'm sorry I wasn't here earlier to celebrate and turn you red, but I am thrilled for you! Nice job!

Katybug: You ended the month with a loss, and that means you're 3 lbs ahead of where you were at the beginning of August - and I think that's definitely something to be happy about. :)

Congratulations to ALL the losers in August - way to go making the month count, and best wishes to all in September!
