Since everybody did so well on the V-Day Challenge, (a total of 128.7 lbs lost!) I thought we would have another short term challenge for St. Patricks Day. This will give us 4 weeks and something to look forward to.

Everybody and anybody is welcome to join in. :D

You may set a personal goal for yourself but make it realistic (remember, it's only 4 weeks) or you can just see how much you can lose (personally I just want to move in the right direction!) ;)

We will start today thru Monday with our starting weights, then update your weight weekly. As you update, please list amount lost that week and the total amount lost up to that point. This will make it alittle easier for me to tally up the amounts for weekly reports.
Also, please edit out the saying "message edited..." that shows at the bottom of your replies as we go along. This will help to keep the thread from getting too long.

Thanks and good luck everybody

Well...at least it went down! Next week the leader and I are going to be going over my journal for this week. She thinks maybe I am not eating enough - as I do exercise regularly - wouldn't that be awsome!! :)

Mar 7-01
Well, the last two weeks I have never been so "ON program" in my whole time with points!! So the small gain was rather disappointing!!! But...I am in it for the long haul, and this is the way life is and I don't measure my life on one or two bad weeks/setbacks. So I got back up on that horse - I am not scared of it anymore!!! I came home and thought I would lose it with food...and I even looked in the pantry to find something to comfort me, and I really don't even want any food!! So I thought that this alone was a reward enough, maybe even better than a loss on the scale! When I was reflecting on the last two weeks, and tried to measure/justify what happened...I remembered I got into a pair of pants this morning that I have not worn for a year, b/c they were too tight. Well my friends, I wore them today and could breath :)!

Not that I am trying to justify my gain but rather self afirmation I must add~~
As I am exercising more intensely, maybe I am gaining more muscle. Also I was sick, and have been drinking about 2-6 additional liters of water to my regular 2L. So maybe my body is just confused. In any case, I am feeling great and I am learning!

Thanks for listening...I needed to get this out of my system - and read it for myself...this thread keeps me accountable (DH does not quite understand, and I keep this journey of mine private mostly - except for here of course).

Thank you and I hope you all have a great day/week!

Feb. 22 - 156.5 :( +1/2
Mar. 1 - 155 :) -1 1/2 Total loss = 1

I am happy with my loss since I have been on kind of a stand still since Jan 18th, when I started a regular exercise program.


Feb 22 --Still struggling & Doing everything right!

March 1 -- lost 1 1/2 and ate out every night! Go figure

March 8 -- I had a "friend" on the scale with me today.

Even though I've been faithful to the program for the last two weeks, I seem to have gained two pounds. Very frustating! So rather than looking at a loss on the scales, (although I certainly hope that will happen) my goal will be simply to stay on program. No matter how frustated I get over what the scale says, I WILL stay on program!

Momof2boyz 02-18-2001 08:49 AM

I have 2 goals..weight loss and an exercise goal. My weight goal is 6lbs and my excercise goal is to go to the fitness center (alone http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//nervous.gif ) at least twice a week.
2/17 260
2/24 258 (-2lbs), fitness center once

I'm in. Thanks for starting the challenge. Just be careful not to celebrate your loss with too much beer, corned beef and Irish soda bread!

Feb. 18: 230(starting)
Feb. 25: 228(-2) Total (-2)
March 3: 228(-0) Total (-2)
March 10: 226(-2) Total (-4)
March 17: 224(-2) It must be the luck of the Irish I really wasn't that great on program.

Take Care,
PS Can you tell I'm psyched for a loss!

bettyboop767 02-18-2001 08:00 PM
