I'm sure I am not the only one in this situation. I had been maintaing for only a week or so before the holidays and have fallen off the wagon ever since, gaining 3.5 pounds back (i only lost ten, so that's almost half!) So who wants to join me in shedding the excess pounds and getting back down to our maintenance weights (or just back on track to weight loss in general, doesn't have to be maintenance)?! We'll have weekly weigh-ins, but also any time anyone has even the smallest success in regaining control, post it here!
Maintenance weight: 100 lb.
Current weight: 103.5
Goal weight: 100
*small success: they didn't have the low-calorie whole grain cereal at the dining hall this morning, but instead of saying "what the heck" and eating the high-calorie sugary cereal, I grabbed enough fruit to equal the amount of calories in the healthy cereal. :)
UH well ive been trying to maintain for who knows how long...since i joined this site i guess. and ive gained 4 kg or so (went from 45 to 49) because i began binging. i have my good times where i wont binge for weeks and weeks, and bad times when ill binge for several days consecutively (and by binge i mean several thousand cals in a go)
so there, i have to get out of the habit, and get back on track for good!!
although id like to be back down to 46kg or so, im not gonna be trying to lose weight, just trying to atleast maintain and not binge or gain any more, and watch what i eat and be healthy.
im in! oh but i have no scale so i might not be able to weigh in weekly...but ill try somehow
current weight 49 kg (108 lbs or so)
*small success: i stopped my binge (altho it was a pretty bad one) before i finished the whole jar of strawberry/vanilla spread. it was pretty gross stuff too, but when binging that doesnt seem to matter
That's my problem too! I'm suddenly allowed to eat all these calories so I eat them...and then a few extra...thousand haha. I've been eating roughly 3000 calories for the past few weeks and while my metabolism is pretty high, it has obviously caught up with me.
So yes, my immediate goal isn't even to lose weight, just control the binging. The excess weight will then fall off!
And if you can't weigh in, don't worry about it, just keep postin to motivate or seek motivation. We can do it!
i'm also maintaining and need some support to make sure i don't fall of the wagon.. so i'm in! my biggest problem is losing control easily when i'm out of my routine.. like when i'm staying over someone's house, going to a party, spending time with family, eating out somewhere, etc. i'm perfect when i'm in my everyday routine but as soon as something out of the ordinary happens, i get off track for like a week or so! so here's to ending that and getting back on track RIGHT AWAY :)
maintaining: 110-115 lbs
today's small success: my sister (who's overweight) bought a huge box of glazed doughnuts this morning and gave me one.. didn't even offer it, just hand it to me.. but i had already eaten breakfast and was like "no thanks, i don't want it." she rolled her eyes at me lol.
atta girl! That's the best feeling when you can not give into the "oh I'll just have a bite" because we all know that's just the start of something terrible ;)
Yes, I need to get back on track! I gained about 5 pounds over the holidays and if I don't do something about it I will keep gaining. It doesn't help that my foot is now injured, so jogging isn't working out so well. I need to really keep track of what I'm eating, though. I'm motivated to get back down.
I'm currently 5'2" and 129 pounds (yikes!) I want to get back to about 125 or 124.
so i've never done a post before... but hey thought it might be nice to get some feedback. I also am on a weight loss plan, and have lost about 5 lbs in the last few weeks. im 5'4 and after moving to school gained 15 lbs! the usual right? so now i am back at 127lb, but my normal is 117-120 ish. I have been staying around 1200 calories, not eating carbs after lunch, and being good about exercise. then i came home this weekend and had a brownie sunday today and yesterday! BUT i managed to stay under 1500 calories both days and worked out. How bad is that for my weight loss, or should I be fine as long as I continue my good streak? Just thought some feedback would help. keep up the good work everyone!
jinderbitzen, if you were able to stay under 1500 calories and you exercised you are still on the right track. a brownie sundae is a treat and you have absolutely nothing to worry about. three brownie sundaes in a sitting might be a little overboard :p so as long as you didn't do that, you are good haha.
*small success: skipped the cheese crackers, went for the broccoli
Day two, guys! Here we go, can you feel the motivation?
*small success: instead of a veggie delite sandwich at subway, i had a veggie delite salad. woot!
Ok, so I made a boo-boo and had a 994 calorie breakfast. But I can consider the self control that I KNOW I'm going to have for the rest of the day a small success. The day is not over yet!
This is going to be harder than I thought...
I've had about 950 calories so far today and I still have to plan dinner. I'm thinking it will have to be a light dinner.
hey guys, i hope you're all having a nice long weekend :) anyways, i stayed home today.. i had a lazy sunday i guess you can say, and it was really nice. i got a lot of my homework done and made myself a chopped chicken, spinach, strawberry and orange slices salad.. it was so good!
today's small success: my sister is still here and today she made a frozen pizza. i ate my dinner while it was in the oven because i knew she was going to try everything in the world to force me to eat a slice. my dinner looked so much better than those greasy, fatty and disgusting slices.. ew!
**so my small failure turned into a huge success today! I know after overeating you shouldn't restrict your calories, and I wouldn't say I "restricted" since I didn't eat a bunch one day and hardly anything the next. I just waited to eat again until dinner and I ended up within my calorie limit for the day! Woo! I was afraid I was going to have to start over AGAIN tomorrow, but that, my friends, is the beauty of screwing up early in the day
I am defiantely in! I've lost 40lbs overall and just gained 10lbs back over the holidays with 1 month of solid overreating. I am actually surprised it was only 10lbs and not everything back! Thank god for exercise while losing!
Current weight - 60kg
Ideal weight - 52kg
I am planning on going and buyingmyself some dumbells, a medicine ball and a skipping rope today instead of renewing my gym membership. I think it will come out cheaper overall and with having all the equipment on hand it will be easier to exercise with ym schedule :)
We can do it guys!
Small failure today: I was going to go to the gym after my exam this morning since school was out early, but the pouring rain and intense wind really demotivated me while cycling back home (although cycling through that must have been a workout). Although if the weather clears up, I'll definetely skip studying for tomorrow's exam to go for atleast an hour.
Small success: DIDNT BINGE yay. and already had 2 servings fruit in the AM. its gonna be a healthy fruity day=]
UPDATE: i managed to bring myself away from studying, and finding the motivation to get out in the bad weather and make it to the gym! And on top of that, I managed to do cardio for 45 minutes, something I've never accomplished before (usually I'd feel a bit dead after half an hour). so yay!
way to go sk33ny! That's awesome!
*my small success today so far has been that after a half hour on the elliptical I was going to do twenty on the treadmill. Well the treadmills were taken, but instead of just leaving, I did another half hour on the elliptical. and then ten on the treadmill!
Hopefully I'll be back with another success today. Let's see how many we can work up to in a day!
Is it still possible to join up? All the holiday foods and sugary goodness have thrown me away from my normal diet of healthy foods and about 10 pounds have seemed to creep their way back onto my thighs and butt :'D
Small success of today: First bingefree day in a while, and even forced myself to do a little weight lifting... and tomorrow I shall do even more *nodnod*
can I join you guys? I could use some motivation to keep a healthy diet (not in the diet sense.. just food in general)
I'd love to weigh 133 but my weight this morning is very discouraging after a loooooong weekend of stuffing my face *142.4*
My goal to drop these, now, 10 pounds, is by May at the latest b/c that's when I'm going on a big camping trip and there is a jacuzzi ;) Mini goals now, well, now, were, to get to 135 by Valentine's day.. but that's 7 pounds in 4 weeks.. and I'm having a hell of a time dropping anything.. but we'll see.. maybe this group is just what I need!!!
I have no small successes yet... It's too early today and I ate all day Sunday and didn't exercise yesterday... so... back to the drawing board!!
what's the weigh-in day?
hey everyone :) i'm in school right now and decided to just stop by and update on what's going on since i don't have class until 8:00 am.. um well this week is going WAY better than last week which was a struggle to get through, so that's good. also, i've come up with some things that might help me out when i'm having weak moments where i feel i'll give in to binging which i'll use mostly on thursday, which seem to be my biggest trigger days.
today's small success: it's cold this morning and everyone in my school is walking around with huge venti starbucks drinks and pastries.. i had a nice protein filled breakfast at home with fresh fruit and yogurt :D
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
