So I started 2/20 at 208 lbs and 39.4% body fat. Now 7 weeks later I am 197 lbs and 35.9% body fat. I have gone down 3/4 inch in the bust, 2 inches in the waist, 1 inch abdominals, 1 inch in the hips, 1/2" each thigh, 1/4" each arm.
That means that I only lost 10.69 lbs of body fat. I lost 10.5 pounds. I was hoping that I had lost more fat and built more muscle. hmmm
I just figured out that is 3 oz of more meat on my body. ha

Starting weight 12/27: 203
April 4 weight: 166
Today's weight: 168
So I'm still down 35 pounds overall. I'm fairly confident I've lost some muscle and added on some fat these past two weeks, but hopefully my two weeks' vacation won't have damaged my progress too greatly. Happy to be getting back on track!

11.8 to go!

Don't talk about strawberry pie here! You'll give us all cravings and the next thing you know we'll all be gaining weight!
Seriously, that sounds good. If I could eat strawberry pie and still be down a half I'd be celebrating (maybe with another piece of pie!)
Ok, so now you all know why I'm over weight!

So I kicked off today with a plain egg white omelette (which was gross because I was also sweeping the floors and forgot about it and it burned, but I made myself eat it anyway ). I'm going back to just one cup of coffee per day. And I'm restarting the water drinking. Really, this time.
It's gorgeous and cool out this morning (70s! I Virginia), so late morning I'll go for a run, and then tonight I'll resume my ChaLean Extreme strength training. Here goes!!!
Original weight 12/27: 203

Since the beginning of February or so I've been doing the 90 day Beach Body program called "ChaLean Extreme," which is sort of like a baby p90x. It's been perfect for me, especially as I'm stretching it into a 120 day program. I've lost 20 (ish) pounds on CE so far. I love how it's as challenging as you want it to be--you can move up to heavier weights whenever you're ready, for example. It's a great mix of strength training (3 days) and cardio/cardio interval (2 days), with abs and a "stretching" (sort of like a baby yoga) thrown in.
On the 2 days "off," I add in extra cardio, which for me used to be other DVDs, but now is running. I probably need even more cardio, but all things in moderation, eh??

I weighed in Sunday last week, but I'm going to be gone for the weekend and I hate weighing on Monday, so I decided to move my weigh in to today. I gained 5 lbs during the 3 weeks that I was at my dads, but this first week home I lost 3 of them!! We always joke about resetting our metabolism by overeating, but I think I actually managed it.

I'm tickled pink at today's weigh-in. Apparently the extra cardio (running) is really helping me out. I didn't do the strength training consistently, so I'll work on that this week, working up to the point where I'm doing both regularly. And unfortunately I've ignored abs altogether. BUT anyway...
Original weight (12/27): 203
Last week's vacation weight: 170
Today's weight: 165
Total weight loss: 38 pounds!!!!!
Hopefully next week I'll hit the big 4-0!!!!!!!!! I can't wait!!! I can almost see the 150s... and honestly I can't remember the last time I was in the 150s, but I can guarantee you it was the mid-90s. WOWOWOWOWOWW!!

I on the other hand was terrible and gained over the weekend. I knew I would be. I planned on it. I needed comfort food to help me through the memorial service and the whole stressful weekend. My plan was to not worry about it all and work hard again this week. I did the first part, now I need to follow through on the second half - work it off!
Posted 04 May 2011 - 10:57 AM
I weighed in on Monday at 142.4, down .2 from last week but still up from the week before. Hopefully now that the plague has lifted and I'm back to my regular exercise schedule I'll get the rest off and start watching those numbers go down again.

Last week I didn't post, but my weight didn't change. I gained a couple of pounds over the weekend and relost them through the week. This week was better. I'm only down 1/2, but I have stabilized after bouncing around. I didn't lose more because I wasn't very careful with my eating, but it was nice to not be very careful and still lose a little.

Not expecting a good number tomorrow because I ate like a pig yesterday. A happy, happy, marshmallow-smeared-all-over-my-chin pig. But anyway. Back in the saddle!

For me yesterday included homemade ice cream and an incredible peanut butter pie (and I don't really like peanut butter I just took a sliver to be polite and then went back and got a second sliver!).
Posted 12 July 2011 - 08:05 AM
Anyway, that is 183 today.
Posted 12 July 2011 - 09:09 AM
It's worth it! And you are doing GREAT!
Posted 03 August 2011 - 08:49 AM
Today was weigh-in for me, and despite not exercising faithfully, I'm ecstatic to still have lost a teeny bit. I really need to be more consistent about letting my body know how grateful I am.
Starting weight: 203
Today's weight: 156
Yeah, baby!!! approaching that magical 50 lb mark. WOW.

This is the week where *I* don't feel like sharing!
Starting weight: 203
Last week's weight: 156
Today's weight: 160
Yes. That's right. The scales say I gained 4lbs this week. I don't entirely believe it. But anyway, I'm going to do better this week and kick myself back into the 150s. I can see 140 on the horizon!!
Posted 10 August 2011 - 10:06 PM
I'm sorry. I know you were really after that 50 lb mark too. With any luck it's mostly water retention and with a little work maybe the gain and those last few pounds will be gone next week so we can celebrate. I'm proud of you for posting anyway. Sometimes putting it in print is worse than seeing it on the scale.

I haven't been officially working out much since I had a race last Sunday, my first-ever 10k. I ran the 6.2 miles in 1:07:51, which was a disappointment to me as I'd wanted to finish under 1:05. But at least I finished the race, yay, AND, as dd(6) pointed out, I wasn't last.
Weigh-in tomorrow. I'm not worried; I'm pretty confident my number's going back down to where it belongs. Back in the saddle yet again! Here we go!
Posted 17 August 2011 - 08:26 AM
As for me, with the race & some lighter eating, I eked out a good number today (I also think last week's number was slightly inflated). But I know it'll go back up in a heartbeat if I don't really dig back into my working out and eating right this week. I especially need to do weights, which I've almost completely abandoned because of running.

Ohhhh.... that 50 lb mark is calling my name!!!!
Posted 18 August 2011 - 06:24 AM
I leave on vacation a week from today. I am having trouble figure out when to fit in workouts now that school has started and I know I won't really worry about what I eat on vacation. I'm not likely to see any good results again for awhile, but that's ok. I don't want my whole life to be about my weight. I just want to keep an active lifestyle that makes sure I'm healthy and so far so good.
