Who wants to lose 10lbs


Quote  |  Reply

Who wants to be my friend.  :)  I had a support group going and well we kinda all fell off the wagon back in the middle of April.  I really really want to drop 10lbs. 

DOes anyone want to take this mini challenge with me??

I was at 177.4 just two days ago.  I am hoping by the time summer gets here I'll be in the 160's.

yes i need to loose 10 lbs plus i am just starting this so lets see where it gts me. I am 27 179lbs and 5'4 my goal is 120 i do not yet have a date set but i do want to see if i can do this well i know i can do this its just i want to see how long it will take to get results i am calorie counting and working out everyday

I worked out yester and then stepped on teh scale.  :( It was a dissappointing 175.  Who knows why it went up. I have been doing well and working out. I want to think its because the big O time is coming any day now.

sunshinebaby,

there are tools on this site that help you determine when the goal date should be. by calculating your height, weight, gender, and age, it determines a healthy schedule for you. that's why i like the site; it seems to be more personal to my own needs not a generalization.

Denise,

I feel your pain. I started at 182 and had gone down to 180 But when i got on the scale last night it said 185! It is so discouraging but i have to remind myself that you gain water weight just before your period (which i should start any day) and muscle weighs more than fat. you may not have dropped physical pounds, but you can be turning it into muscle by working out. these are just ways i look at it to keep myself motivated!

hey gals!

hopefully the people who recieved my chart are doing well on it.

I'm stuck at 172..today I'll be going to the gym to run 2 miles and then do like 15 mins of other random cardio. I'm feeling kind of tired, so time to get some caffeine in me to get me going for a good work out!

i read that if you drink coffee 1 hour before a work out, you burn more because you don't realize how much you're pushing yourself.

When I first posted I was 148, yesterday, 149, and now today 147 again.

I'm so tired of this fluctuation mess!

I'm ready to lose some REAL lbs! Am I going to have to eat 1200 cals and dry chicken breast and salads to acheive that???

 I have to remind myself of that too. My waiste and thighs are smaller but the scale isn't refleting that and yes its frustrating.  Normally I don't 1 or 2lbs loss as a loss until its gone for a few weeks.  LOL. 

I am also one of those women who chart my cycles, and I always gain a pound or two around ovulation.  Funny when naturally you should be your sexiest (that is if you plan on making a baby) your body bloats. 

I'm pretty proud of myself today.  Went to the Sox game - ate a decent amount of junk, but not too bad.  I was tired when I got home and lazy, but I still jumped on the elliptical for 20!  Hopefully I'll have lost a little tomorrow.  We'll see!

SW: 165

CW: 132

GW: 120

Okay, so I gained two pounds this week (hopefully just water weight), as I have not been doing the best since last weekend.  I am going to do better before next weigh in.  Good luck everyone!

I'm trying to lose about 10 - 15 pounds as of now. I'd be happy at 10, but thrilled at 15 you know? 6'1 (male).

 

SW: 220

CW: 200

GW: 185

Funny thing is I've been watching what I eat all week and exercising and I havent lost a pound. I was at 194 at one point but I gave up for a bit and gained back.

I should have written this down this morning so I wouldn't forget, but I believe I was 155.4 when I weighed myself.  That is down 1.4 pounds from last Friday!!

I try to lose ~10 pounds too

25 Days Left!!!

 

Sadly guys I haven't lost any weight.  My fitness and stamina have increased in Spin class and doing exercise videos but the scale isn't moving.  I think I am going to have to recalute my calorie needs.  I seem to be VERY VERY hungry and thus lately I have been over eating. 

So where is everyone at!

 

 

I've not lost any weight and I'm so bummed.  I've been eating right, watching all my calories, and working out. arg!

Starting weight: 136

Current weight: 136

Goal weight: 124

I recaculated my calories, and it seems about right now.  I was eating 1450 calories but it didn't include what I was doing when I worked out!  I always seem to over eat.

CC has me at 1550 calories and I plan on tracking that today, and adding more calories to breakfast (going to be hard becasue I Don't like to eat breakfast).  Hopefully that will help the scale move for next week. 

Stephanie.  I have had it happen to me, where my calories and defict were dead on for weight loss and the scale didn't move for nearly a month. Then suddenly I dropped 5lbs in a week.  That 10lbs for the summer might show up all at once. 

Yeah, this was a rough weekend! :)  Then the junk food for the hangover didn't help either.  Today is a new day and hopefully will be back on track for the rest of this week and next month.

15 days left until summer!!!!

 

I have been away for awhile and it wasn't because I was CHEATING or FELL off the wagon.  I live out in the boonies of NC and lost my phone modem to bad weather last Friday....we finally got it fixed and I am back.

I got on the scale after a few weeks of it maintaining the same weight..and I am at 171.25. :) 

I might not lose a full 10lbs by summer but I'll be pretty close. :)

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
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.
