Total Loss for Week Three:

I know I said this week that I'm ok with a slow loss, but I do feel a little stuck right now. I'm hoping to have a great week 3, because weeks one and two were very slow. Bring on a 2 pound loss this week. I did get on my treadmill yesterday and walked for about 40 minutes, with a few light jogs mixed in, and I'm going to do the same thing this morning before I go into work. And I tend to do better on the weekends because I can eat on my schedule instead of around my work schedule. So maybe by Monday, I'll see the 196s

Blah!

I am jumping back into these threads....

I was doing fairly well through the Autumn...getting down to about 166.0 lbs at my lowest (which is NOT my lowest....I was about 152 maybe 5 years ago?)

Anyway, I totally indulged through the Holidays - and put on about 5 lbs and figured "no sweat, I'll get it off in January, for sure."

Well, that DID NOT HAPPEN. And now I sit here, Feb. 15th at 175.0 lbs.

Sigh.

So, I have to lose 10 lbs.

Again.

Like I think I have lost these 10 lbs and regained them, 4,578 times!!!!!!

I don't think I will ever get below 160-ish, again. MenoPause has just wrecked me that way.

But, I am also tall and so if I can get <164, I have promised myself I can then work on maintenance and figure out "life after 50".

I did have my 50th birthday in Nov/18 and I was at a pretty decent weight and felt very good about myself. I do NOT like that it is 3 months later and again I feel crappy about myself.

Bleugh!

Sorry for the lack of personals. Crazy week at university followed by my dad collapsing twice today and having to call out a care service to help get him up.

Well, at least I'm consistent? Not sure what's going on right now, just hanging out around 141/142. Super sore yesterday after three pretty aggressive days at the gym, so I took last night off (and had a couple of drinks while looking for my future ex bf, yay valentines day, lol). Hoping they open the road back up so I can snowboard this weekend. Otherwise it will be gym Saturday and Sunday.

The scales continue to surprise. Had 3 glasses of wine and a meal in the pub last night before the open air cinema, and am 1lb down on yesterday. Don't recall that particular weight-loss stragegy ever working in the past. Unfortunately.

Snowmama - what to do you mean about the BF? You didn't meet up and now you're going to give him his marching orders??
Newlyn - really sorry to hear about your Dad, that must be really worrying. How is he now?
Beeps - good to see you back again!! (even if you don't want to be here). I think if you were doing so well for so long just recently, it'll only take a few days of knuckling back down to make you feel good about yourself again and back in control. Just do it. (i'm 51 next month, and the lowest I've ever weighed, and absolutely loving it, so don't give up on your ultimate target just because you think you're too old!)

Thanks for asking ange82much. My dad's a lot better today. He has dementia and Parkinson's symptoms and as a result his right side can seize up so that it won't take his weight. Once he's rested, it resolves and he's back to his everyday mobility, which isn't great but he can get about.

Newlyn: Sorry to hear that about your dad, but I'm glad he's doing better.

ange: I've heard that alcohol is a diuretic, so drinking can dehydrate you and thus show a loss on the scale.

Snowmama: If you're sore, it's probably muscles retaining water that is causing the scales to not move.

Beeps: Welcome back. The good thing is that you've only regained 10 pounds, and 8 of those are probably water. I bet it is really only a couple pounds of actual fat. No problem.

ange: I was just being silly, no bf right now and I am feeling perpetually unsuccessful in finding someone to share my life with. I've dated some great guys (and not so great) but just not the right one. So I was on bumble looking for the next person to date and subsequently break up with. Lol.
Lacerta: I'm sure you're right about muscle water retention. Not only was I really sore, I messed up my neck while sleeping and couldn't turn my head yesterday. Taking it easy today
(besides cleaning and house chores) because tomorrow I'm going snowboarding! Gotta save my legs for 6+ hours on the mountain. NSV - tried on my old snowboarding pants and I'm comfortably in the second to the smallest size I own. I probably won't make it back into the smallest size - those were from when I was 19 and somewhere around 120 lbs.

Default Hello everyone

I am joining super late. I was following the thread last year but something happened in October and I just forgot my weight loss. I was at 171 pound and gained a lot of weight. Last Monday I started again at 182 pounds and I am at 177.5 now.

So I start tomorrow.

My weight goal for this mont is 173 lbs.
My weight goal is 125.
I just hope I can make it work.

17 - 177.5lbs

JenyReddy: Welcome back. You don't start tomorrow, you've already started, by making the decision to start posting and being accountable again. Way to go.

MrsDeenz: Nice drop today, way to go.

ceejay: The first step to losing weight is accurately tracking and figuring out where to make improvements. As long as you are doing that, you are making progress, even if the scale isn't showing it yet.

Snowmama: Yes, water retention when you're sore can be brutal. Sorry to hear about your neck. Hope you feel lots better in time for your snowboarding tomorrow.

Total Loss for Week Three:

Another new low today, yay. I think I'm solidly under 197 now. I definitely lose more weight on the days when I don't work or just work a short shift. I can't wait until I can get my work schedule back to working from 8-2 most days. I lose weight much more quickly on that schedule than on my normal 8-12 and 1-5 (and definitely faster than when I end up in overtime). I can eat 2 meals a day and have a longer fasting period rather than 3 meals. I do much better on that system. Even when I just eat a light lunch, I still don't lose as well as on the 2 meals a day.

Had a really nice NSV yesterday. I've been doing the Couch 2 5k program, and yesterday, I jogged for 20 minutes straight. Over a mile. First time I've "run" a mile since college 20 years ago. I say "run" because I jogged at the same pace as my walking, 3.5 mph, so it was still like a 17 minute mile, but it was definitely jogging. Once I get to the point I can jog 2 miles straight, I'll start working on speed, but I want to get the endurance first. Everything I'd read said I'd most likely be really sore the day after the first 20 minute run, but I think all the walking this year built up my bones/muscles/joints/tendons, etc to the point that the 20 minute jog wasn't a big deal. I'm not sore at all. Just did my walk today in spite of the light snow coming down.

Also took my measurements today:
My current measurements (to the nearest .25 inch) are:
Neck: 14 -> 14
Bicep: 13.5 -> 13.5
Forearm: 11 -> 11
Chest: 42.25 -> 42
Waist: 37 -> 37
Belly/Hips: 44 -> 44
Thigh: 25.5 -> 25
Calf: 17.25 -> 17

So not much change, just 1" overall. But I'm only down 2 pounds, so that isn't a big surprise.

I'd like to say that this is all pre-TOM gain but I've eaten a lot of chocolate in the past few days. I haven't actually gone over maintenance calories but yeah, lots of chocolate.
