Bite-Sized Weight Loss - MAY Edition EVERYONE WELCOME!!


Quote  |  Reply

Hello All!

I like the accountability and twice weekly weigh-ins and want to invite anyone who would like to or feels they would benefit to join as well.  Everyone is welcome! 

We weigh in on Mondays (for weekend accountability - or at least so we are aware ASAP of the damage) and Fridays (usually a boost since weekday eating right and exercise are usually a little easier to stick with).

This runs for one month: April 30 - June 1 

(The dates are to keep it Monday start day and Friday end day, so we won't officially start the new challenge until AFTER the weekend, and even though there isn't a "May" date up there it will be the entire month of May represented by the end.)

Good luck, everyone!

May Challenge (April 30 - June 1st)
Start Weight: 152.5
Goal Weight: 140 (Decided to aim a little low for this month, anything more would be a great bonus! Smile )

Week 1
Mon Apr 30:   152.5 Got my P90x started up again yesterday so I have Saturdays off for stretching, did my Plyometrics today, hoping to see some weight loss this week Tongue out


Fri May 4: 152.5 (Took my weight in the morning before I ate anything. After 4 days of P90x I haven't dropped any weight but I'm noticing I'm starting to look more toned and I lost nearly 2 inches off my waist, 1/2 an inch off my arms, and 1/4 inch off my legs, so not too bad.)

Week 2
Mon May 7:  153 (Ughhh gained half a pound. Not sure how since I worked out all throughout the weekend and didn't go over my calories so I'm just guessing it's some muscle starting to build up which I think is good lol)

Week 3
Mon May 14:  163!!!!!  - UGH! Okay, to be totally fair, it is TTOM and the day after Mom's Day, so I cut myself a little slack and decided to just buckle down this week.  Not expecting major progress, but hoping to be back where I was by Friday and (as this posting is WAY late on Wednesday) am already at 158.8, so I think a lot was water and hormones...  the .8 lb still here may be honest from bad eating, though.  :)

I am so frustrated with myself. I have a sick dog, had a plumbing disaster, and I've been busy at work and I haven't exercised at all for a week. For a couple of days it was all about the pizza and vending machine as well. It doesn't feel very good - not just because I'm not nearing my goal, but I'm bloated and sometimes feel like I've been sitting in one spot too long.

Fri May 18:   159.6 - Um...  Not really the progress I was hoping for, but at least out of the 160's AGAIN.  It's been hot all week in our fitness classroom, so we have been doing a LOT of toning and weights, but not much aerobic activity.
