Just stepped on the scales this morning for my second proper WI and my weight has gone done to 63kg (138.8lbs). On target for at least 5lbs by August. I've been really good on the eating, I've just need to do something to mix up my exercise routine.

Still 124.6lbs this morning, but I'm retaining some water, I think -- had sushi with soy sauce for dinner (it was SO yummy!) But since I was out late-ish with a friend and then cleaned my place before the boyfriend came over, I didn't get any treadmill time in. /lame excuses

Tomorrow is my official weekly weigh in day so I'm hoping hard for a lower number! I move my ticker to 124 when I can round down (124.6lbs rounds up to 125, ugh!) My scale measures in increments of .2, so even the smallest incremental drop will put me at 124.4 so I can move my ticker. Silly, isn't it, that it would matter that much?

---

Skinnyfast - I use caloriecount.com as well as other ones, I mostly have all of the calorie counts I use regularly memorized and/or written in a notebook that I carry around everywhere.

Saturday is TOTALLY motivating! I had all these places to eat planned (free day!) but now I think I'm just gonna settle for splurging at dinner instead of all day. I really don't need to eat a bunch of crap just for the sake of eating it! Red Lobster is no-holds-barred though, those garlic cheddar biscuits don't stand a chance. My super skinny jeans will have to be peeled off when I get home after eating all that!

TheManekiNeko - Nice work, keep at it! You're doing great! What are you thinking as far as switching up your routine? I need to do the same, I get a lot of cardio and that's about it. :/ I have some 4 pound hand weights, but they are way too light so I barely even use them anymore.

Good luck everyone!

Alright I have been in sunny spain for the past 5 days and been LOVING every minute of it! Of course my diet has gone right out the window but I figure since all Ive been eating has been fish with a side of fish and some more fish (oh also some of the most DELICIOUS fruit I have ever had) that Im probably not doing TOO horribly. Ive also been swimming about 40 lengths a day, taking several 3 hour walks, and keeping up with my hour of pilates so for the first time ever I actually feel that Ive gotten slimmer since going on holiday! My downfalls seem to be peanut butter (a recurring fault) eating waaaay too much of the most fabulous old goats cheese with quince jam and drinking too much booze and chocolate soy milk but what the **** LIFE IS SHORT!

Edit: They appear to have blocked a word that I really didnt consider a swear word. Ill rephrase it: "What the heck"

Dorian5 - I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to change about my exercise.

I'm the same with doing only cardio at the moment I swim a lot and walk everywhere so only cardio. But I've just realised that with my summer job I get free gym so I might try doing some weights.

I've always wanted to run, I was pretty good when I was younger, but I have knee issues so that's probably not a great idea.

I weighed in at 123.6lbs on Saturday, then ate crap ALL weekend instead of just during my free meal and didn't work out at all. Ugh, the guilt is overwhelming.

Back on track today, trying to avoid the scale until my next Friday weigh in so I won't be depressed.

skinny fast It was great! My jeans were sexy and my new high heels were sexy! Harry Potter made me cry a little! Red Lobster was too rich, I could barely eat it, my body did NOT want all that fried/battered/cheesed/creamed nonsense in it at ALL.

I probably gained half a pound over the weekend, haha. Oh well, I'll just be extra good this week! It was worth it!

You are doing GREAT, you'll see 118 on the scale again in no time!

Thanks! I hope in the next couple days my scale will be on my good side again. (TMI) Being on my period isn't helping!!

Glad you had a great time!! It's fabulous that your body is starting to reject unhealthy stuff! I wish mine did, lol.

I just implemented my cheat meal and my stomach is not happy. It's rejecting mac and cheese, lol. I think for my next cheat meal to boost my metabolism I'll indulge in pizza - not so much creamy cheese. Ugh! I'm gonna do my kettlebells later once I digest.

I went and bought myself a jump rope the other day and will start to incorporate that into my cardio portion of my exercise regiment.

Glad to hear everyone is doing well.

Here's an update:

Weigh-Ins
Week 1 SW (7/1): 116.5
Week 2 SW (7/8): 114.5
Week 3 SW (7/14): 114

Goals/Plan of Attack
I've been:
-staying on track with water intake & portion sizes
-exercising 4-5x/week (zumba, walking & swimming)

Goals Achieved So Far:
-reached July 4th GW (116)
-reached Beach Weekend GW (114.5)
-took a cute pic with my car on the beach

This should be my official "end weight photo":


Took 3 years of clean eating and exercise, but I'm finally happy with my progress looking at this pic Hope everyone's week is going good. Now that I'm back from vacation, its back to zumba class after work
