I'm 5 ft 1 and a smidgen and am currently 145 lbs, and am setting a goal of a 10-15 lb loss.
Other groups have people of different heights with similar goals, but I'm looking for weight loss buddies under 5 ft 2 to lose the chubb with.....to keep it fair. (It seems like the shorter folk lose slower as well...IMO).
Please post stats to keep it real!
5 ft 1-Female-36yrs
Bust: 39.5, Waist: 33, Hips: 39.5, Thighs: R24 L23.5.......Weight 145
EDIT: (Sept 26/10)
Lets set a new goal for December 20/10.
We can still weigh in on Wednesdays.
Oh......Savvy! We are in the same boat! Trip next week, and damn ol' Aunt Flo......BTW I started taking the pill to alter my period so it would come this week instead of next so I could avoid having it on my trip.......so hopefully next Friday I will be in the 130's! I don't even care if it's 139.9.....lol!
I've been drinking so much water I could float the Titanic and I still think I'm retaining fluid! I might be having too much sodium though.........and chocolate....damn Easter Bunny.......I knew I should have locked the door on the bugger! lol! He should leave carrots instead!
I am still here! Sorry I wasn't able to weigh-in today and I missed last week, we were at my husbands families for our Easter "week" :), that was a killer.
Last-last week: 117
This was surprising since today was the first time I made it to the gym in the last week and a half. I start class again next week so I think it will be better when I have a regular schedule again. Savvy and sweetchili I am sure you guys can make it! We are cheering for you! Have a great weekend!
Good news! So I weighed in today and was back down to 161.4. I had a few cocktails last night so it could be dehydration but I dont care!
Good morning everyone!
Last week: 150.3
This week: 149.4
Feeling pretty good this morning.
I have an appointment with my GP today. I have been having problems with fatigue for months, along with some other symptoms. I'm hoping to have my thyroid tested. I'm having such a hard time losing weight also, so I'm going to talk to her about switching antidepressants. I've been taking prozac since last May and yesterday I learned that slow weight gain often happens after being on the med for longer than 6 months. So I think maybe it may have contributed to my weight gain. I was 140-142 for years (besides pregnancy and a few months after pregnancy) and then slowly moved up to the 150s.
I can't help but think that I'm just looking to place blame on something for my weight gain and difficultly losing weight, but I figure it's best to cover all my bases. If my thyroid is fine and switching meds doesn't help, then it's something I'm doing wrong.
Hope you all have a great week!
I was at 164 today:(Bleh, right back where I started. But I am not counting this weigh in. I am on my period and have been eating junk and not drinking enough water... I will wait until next Wednesday to see where I am really at.
I hate this vicious cycle. Period for 1 week, feel bloated, crave carbs. Right after period for about 2 weeks I am in complete control and shed a couple pounds. Then the week before my period I get super tired and hungry and usually don't gain but wont lose. Then period comes back and I weight more, feel bloated and cant stop eating. I gain the couple pounds I lost back and am right where I started!!! GRRRRR, so frustrating.
Well, 141.8......:( and I'm at my destination on Saturday :) Hopefully I can be good until then! ;P
At least the scale didn't go up any, so I guess it's alright.......Not anywhere near my goal but whatever! I'll work on it when I get back and make a new goal and date for myself for June. Small steps I suppose!
I was at the grocery store today and a neighbor who I haven't seen in a while was there and told me how great I looked and that she had to look twice, she didn't recognise me at first.......so that made me feel great!:):):):)
Not sure if I'll be back on here as I have a hectic day tomorrow and Friday.......I hope everyone has a great week and I'll be back next Sunday............Imagine the damage that will be done by then.......lol! No calorie counting for me this week........yay!
sweetchiliheat--enjoy your trip! :-)
THIS WEEK: 120.3
LAST WEEK: 120.0
Ah well. :-( Not a big change, but I've been having a hard time lately. I always seem to get stuck right around this weight. I know I definitely have more weight that I could lose--I have a very flat chest and carry almost all my weight in my butt/thighs. I've been just not wanting to deny myself anything lately. X_X Tonight and tomorrow I'll probably be going over my calories both days, as a friend is up to visit.
But sigh--there is always a reason for me to go over! It's one of the sucky things about being as short as we are--if I don't exercise that day, 'over' is 1700 calories! For example, Sunday my friend and I are going to New York, so there we go, I'll probably be over again. :-/
Maybe I'll work on maintenance for the next week--weight loss wears me down sometimes.
Busy day, couldn't get on til now:
I'm feeling much better this week. Finally seeing the scale move again, and my jeans from last August fit again... granted they're a little tighter than they were back in August, but they fit. It's so nice to finally see some improvement after such a slow loss.
Hey guys, sorry late again.
It seems like we have all been kind of stuck in a rut. I have been having a really hard time sticking to my calorie goals... the main culprit is wine. Its hard to get enough to eat and fit in a glass of wine or two and not get to 1600-1700 which is "over" for us small ones, like minerva said. Maybe I need to up my limit so I feel like my calories is more doable, and I won't hit the chips and beer the minute I see I can't "help" but going over 1300. Good luck this next week guys and enjoy your weekend. We can do it!
I had a disappointing week last week. I gained a pound and went back up to 166. This week I'm back down to 165, so I'm moving in the right direction.
I was thrilled this week when I tried on a short-sleeved knit top that I hadn't worn since last summer and it looked completely different on me. My bust doesn't look so heavy, and my arms are much more toned.
My main vice is ice cream, and that's going to be tough challenge now that the warm weather is here. I can say no to most other goodies, but I have a really hard time limiting my ice cream intake. I do try to substitute low-fat alternatives like Skinny Cow ice cream cones, but it's not quite the same. One of my favorite things to do on a summer weekend is to take the kids to a local ice cream parlor.
Tigertwostep--I hear ya! I love ice cream in the summer time! :-) I think it's all right as long as you stick to a small and stay active. We had a pretty mild summer last year, I'm hoping for a few warmer days this summer so I can get more use out of the pool.
I think I've lost a couple of inches, at least--my shorts that I bought two summers ago that fit pretty well (and one pair was actually a little snug) are now very loose--I can take them off without unbuttoning/unzipping them. And I'm definitely in a better position than this time last year--this time last year I was abroad in Ireland, and I gained 8 pounds while I was abroad (I was there for 4 months). XD Oops! I don't regret it, though--I had an amazing time and lost 4 pounds that summer and then the remaining 4 in the fall (only to put those 4 back on over the holiday...oops again!).
Woo! I'm still moving in the right direction. Looks like I finally figured out my calorie intake. It's so counter intuitive to increase calories to lose weight, but it seems to be working, so I'm just going to go with it.
Ice cream is totally my vice too, but I've been getting around it by freezing individual yogurts or nonfat puddings, that way I have a healthier, portion controlled frozen treat just waiting for me.
I'm back after enjoying a month at my parents' home abroad... It was fun and nice seeing all my family together, however it was scary regarding my non existent diet and exercise for almost a month...
After I woke up today, I took a deep breath, went to the bathroom and weighed. I couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing:
LW: 146.8 (3/21)
CW: 144.2 (4/21)
Girls... I think I'll start to believe in miracles... I'm so so so so happy, I can't believe that for a month I've been enjoying food without thinking about the consequences and this is the result... I feel really motivated to continue my weight loss!!!
Tomorrow I'm going back to the gym... good luck everyone!
Hopefully some of that is water weight... But if not I wouldn't be surprised I wasn't too good last week. I am going this week without alcohol. I think it will help me get back into the routine of sticking to my calorie limits. I am optimistic :) Have a good weekend!
2 weeks ago: 161.6
Last week: 164
This week 162.4
I am all over the place, i was hoping I would drop back to 161.6 after my period and wine trip. But hey I ate and drank like crazy for basically 2 weeks, did not excersize at all and only gained .8. Back on the wagon this week! My new goal is to be under 160 by May 5th (Cinco De Mayo) and conveniently a weigh in day :)
Last week: 149.4
This week: 147.9
This was actually Monday's weight. I'm at my sister's visiting her new baby and while she has a scale, I won't dare get on a different one.
My sister is a very healthy eater and always has tons of good snacks in the house, so it's been easy to stay on track here. My new nephew is so adorable and I'm loving spending time with him!
Some of that was definitely water weight, but I have been able to start getting back on track. I don't always stay under my allowance, but there were only two days where I didn't have a deficit. I have been battling with all of the easter candy that is left :) My sweet tooth has been really getting to me and I'm ready to throw everything out! haha. I hope your guys' week has been going well!
Last week: 147.9
This week: 146.8
Progress for several weeks in a row now, finally!!
Where is everybody? :)
I hope someone is still around....
I couldn't make it yesterday, but here I'm today. So....
I haven't got back to the gym yet.... but I'm still happy that I'm getting down anyways.
Good job geogirl!!! Being patient is paying off :)
I've been on a two week eating binge and I'm baaaacccccckkkkk! lol....
Ate like crazy on my vacation in Punta Cana for a week and have been eating steady for the last week on top of that......I can't seem to get enough, it's sickening really! Tomorrow I will start fresh for sure.......I'm too far gone already to begin to be good today.......I've been a very bad eater today!
So, I weighed in this morning and I was 147.6......gross! I totally don't even feel good......drained, bloated and crabby! I was about 141 or a bit less when I weighed two weeks ago! When I'm bad, I'm really bad.
I am starting a new goal for myself for the 5th of June as my friend is having a bridal shower and I want to slim down.....maybe I can reach my original goal.......lol.
How is everyone else doing?.......seems like some have disappeared
