Hello, I have been on CC for about 2 and a half years. I've gone up and down on weight, even finally reaching my goal in May! But I have lost track of myself since then, and I want to get back on track TODAY. I've been part of lots of groups and they start out great but then people eventually stop showing up. I know I need more consistent and frequent motivation than that, so for THIS group, I want to check in EVERY DAY. That means a daily weigh in and update on how we're doing, highs and lows, etc. I'm sure there are at least one or two others out there who could use this kind of structure. Can't wait to meet you!
Monday July 12th-- 142.6 lbs
Where I'm at: After finally FINALLY reaching my goal of 135 in late May, I have really been slacking in every sense so it's no wonder I put 7.6 lbs back on. I know some of it will be water weight cause I've been eating a lot of processed food and not drinking enough water, so hopefully I can drop a few of those pounds fast.
The plan: Today I am going to drink TONS of water and eat only whole foods. Also going to take both dogs on nice long walks and hit the 4 pm weight lifting class which I love. I want to continue this plan through the week... going camping Sunday-Wednesday so I need to lock these new habits in before I'm in the woods with nothing to do but eat and nap.
Yesterday, I got in exercise right away in the morning. I intended to do more later in the day, but didn't. Eating was better though! Most of today is done, but I did get in some exercise - 35 minutes on the treadmill. Eating was not good today.
Weight - 206.6
Today: 207.4 (weekends are tough)
Goal: I already exercised (strength training) for 15 minutes this morning. I plan to walk on one of my breaks and exercise again this evening. I also want to stay within my calorie count for today.
Barriers: Just the usual - family, work, stress!
So yesterday I did great ALL day. I went to my cardio blast class in the morning, ate all my meals. Them 8:30pm boredom came along and i decided to treat myself with one piece of chocolate my mom brought in the house..... bad idea that turned into the whole bar, tons of cereal, a sandwich, granola bars and much much more :( :( Im so dissapointed in myself because I was doing so well. None of my pants fit for university and I really dont want to go back at this weight. So Im making a new rule. NO EATING AFTER 8:30- NO MATTER WHAT. Just tea/drinks/gum.
Today: 159.8 :( ...ugh
Total Pounds Lost: - .2
Goals for the day: Stay on calorie intake, Cyclefit class at 5:30, no eating after 830
Yesterday: Don't know how I missed weigh in here yesterday. I was pretty good over the weekend, so I've got a decent start on the week.
Goal: Working on cutting my meat intake.
Barriers: With the weather being so unpredictable, don't know when I'll get the yard work done and probably won't be able to take the kids swimming. :o(
I would love to join if I can :) I'm 31 years old, 5'2" or so (haven't actually measured myself since I was a kid), 132 as of today. I started at 168. Goal weight 120.
Goal: I will do HIIT on the elliptical today and to keep my calories in check (1500 - 1600) and to make sure I stay under 1500 mg of sodium. I have had issues with sodium lately and have been able to break through my plateau by watching that
Barriers: Making the correct food choices as usual :)
sorry i haven't been here. i was camping for five days and i just got back. ohh maa gawd i ate so much. i did go on one really strenuous hike but besides that i just sat around eating and drinking. no bueno!
current weight: 146.8 highest weight i've had in months and months. jesus.
goal: today tons of water, no alcohol or pop, get into the gym and do some yoga (my back is killing me from that camping bed) and cardio too.
barriers: i've gotten into such a bad pattern with food over the last week, it will be hard to break the cycle. i will do it though!
Yesterday: Don't know how I missed weigh in here yesterday. (again!) Today's weight is up from last post, but is down from yesterday. Good old fluctuation!
Goal: Eat more veggies.
Barriers: Probably taking the kiddos to a movie this evening. I will NOT stuff myself full of consessions!
Today: Up since last time 133 :( Had more soduim than I have been so that might be a reason.
Goal: Again, keep sodium in check and stay within my calorie limit.
Barriers: For today I don't think there is.. I will have some tomorrow though :) Hubby is taking me to dinner I think so I'm sure not so good choices there. Can't seem to make good choices while out, hence why I don't do it as often.
weight: 144.2, down 2.6 from yesterday so it must have been a lot of water weight. thank goodness.
goals: we have a big show i care about a lot tomorrow night, so i really have to watch sodium so i look skinny. gonna get to the gym after work no matter what.
barriers: very busy today. will be hard to eat balanced meals but i will really try.
I'm lucky half of the 12 pounds I've gained in recent weeks seems to be melting off so it must be mostly bloating. I didn't ACTUALLY go to the gym yesterday but I went on a 2 hour hike and a 30 minute run so I got my calories burned.
goals: get to the gym, lots of protein, low sodium, NO DAIRY on show days.
barriers: will be partying after the show... this means alcohol and probably food. I will need to watch myself.
175.2 this morning. won't have my usual gaming weekend, so i'm hoping it's easier to make healthy food choices.
Been on CC for about a year.
Where I am today.
One year and kept it off! Time to get serious again.
Going with low carbs and low fat. Having a hard time with sweet carbonated beverages. ugh!
Staring cardio 30 minutes a day 3x a day. The 1st week and bumping it to an hour a day 3x a week. Lowering my calorie intake to 1000- 1200 a day.
New goal is 157.00
Good Luck all and stay with it. That is the whole thing.
ate out yesterday, so i expect that most of this upward fulcutation is just water retention from the sodium.
got people coming over today, so now i'm off to plan an exciting and healthy meal for guests. :o)
no change from yesterday. no news is good news right now so i'm happy.
goals: keep my protein high and my carbs low today. go to strength endurance training class.
barriers: going to a BBQ tonight, gotta really exercise my self control there!
Could I join too please? I'm 30/5'6"/180.78lbs.
Goal: Drink lots of water. Avoid overloading on carbs. Go for the walk in the evening.
Barriers: Tempted to skip walk (as always)! Don't!!!
i'm really surprised that the number on the scale today. guess i burned more calories than i thought yesterday. yea me! :o)
Do yo still have room for one more? I like to weigh everyday because it helps keep me honest. I think that avoiding the scale is one of the reasons I am where I am now weight wise. It is easy to be in denial when you are not facing facts.
Today I did 45 minutes on the elliptical but it was light effort so I am going to try and step that up in the future. Tonight I will be doing some horse back riding.
I hope it's okay that I don't weigh in on the weekends, I actually do weigh myself but I don't really get on the computer.
Today: 135.4 (really, really up) - It's TOM and higher sodium but mostly TOM
Goal: Lower the sodium and eat right. Working out today at the gym lifting.
Barriers: Only myself and the choices I make :) And I won't let myself down :)
everyone is welcome and the rules aren't strict. we are just encouraged to check in often to keep ourselves mindful.
up .6 from yesterday but that's negligible right?
plan: eat lean, get lots of protein, no alcohol. go on a run if i am up to it, i killed myself at the gym yesterday so i may take a day off. i will get in a 30 min walk at the very least.
barriers: nannying at the kid's house today instead of my own. will be hard to resist sharing the macaroni and fish sticks and stuff she will inevitably ask me to make for her. i will prepare by packing lots of my own snacks.
Yesterday: Had a good day overall. Ate lots of proteins, very few carbs and went for the walk in the evening. Am thinking that maybe my body is used to the walks by now and needs me to step it up a bit.
Today: 180.78 (same as yesterday but at least its not up)
Goal: Eat more protein, less carb and drink lots of water. Try to walk for 30min extra today.
Barrier: No time for extra walk. Play around with schedule, make time! This is important!!
