I have done a couple entries on here since I started weight watchers, but I feel like I should update more often (to keep myself more accountable!). Soooo, here's some numbers!
Starting Weight: 195lbs - September 4th, 2011 Current Weight: 179lbs - November 6th, 2011 Weight change: -16lbs in two months!
I've had weird weeks where I gain a pound (only happened once!) and then weird weeks where I've lost 3 lbs, but generally, I'm loosing about a pound and a half a week and I haven't started exercising yet. Does anyone have any good exercise things to do at home and without a video or equipment (except for free weights)? That's the hardest part of working out is I don't have any equipment, not tons of places to go walk/run, and not a lot of time. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
SW- 195 lbs. After week one - 190lbs CW- 187.4lbs Goal - 150lbs. Lost in two weeks -7.5lbs!
I'm 5'5", so I'd ideally like to get down to 130, but at 150 I will weigh what I did in 9th grade! Learning to go slow with my weight loss is tough, I just want to be thinner NOW. But I'm learning! Good luck to everyone else!
I'm so excited for this weeks meeting! The May 22 Walk it challenge is happening and I am going to be a part of it! Its a 5k walk (3.1 miles) and I know I can do it. I'm going to train with the program my leader gave me and walk, walk, walk it out! =) who else is on board with me? Anyone want to be my training buddy? We can encourage each other to get ready for it and get it accomplished! I know its harder online but I'm willing to be there for YOU! On the other hand I had my weigh in today.. i have gained 2 oz which put me at 202 even..... I did so good this week, exercised and all. So what happened? I am so determined to drop to below 200lbs before May!!! I had it in my grasp and its slipped away T_T Will this keep happening?
Hi there, I joined WW today. I decided it was time to lose weight and this time I'm determined.
Height: 5' 6"
Anything else you wanna add: I've been on WW before about four years ago and lost about a stone (my SW was significantly lower than it is now, though). I've always dieted and always tried to lose weight but now I feel like it's the right time. I'm nearly twenty and I need to sort my life out!
Good things of the week: Pretty proud of myself for eating breakfast every day this past week. For most of my life, even in previous attempts at weight watchers, I constantly skipped breakfast. Made the concious decision at the start of the week that I'd be better about breakfast from now on and got myself hooked on a pretty tasty cereal (Rasin Bran Extra) and stuck to it. In the past, I'd be like 'oh yeah, going to eat breakfast every day from now on'.......and stick to it for 1-2 days, and then forget about it.
Areas that need improvement: Tracking--For the most part I was diligent about tracking, but there were a couple of days in the middle of the week where I'm pretty sure I definately ate over my points for the day, and didn't even keep track/account for it. Veggies---I definately need to be more concious about getting my veggie servings in. Last time I went about program, I think I probably over-veggied, heh, so I want to get back to being at least halfway to how I was back then.
Hallelujah, I've finally made it. I think I was stuck shortly before that 'magic' 108 kg for several weeks now (I blame stress at work that led to a few days binging on chocolate or Indian cuisine). Finally I've made it. Today's weigh-in says: 107,9 kg. Hooray. Plus, I've taken new measurements, and so far I've lost more than 10cm around my hips and waist each. Not losing too much round the thighs so far (1,5 cm), but maybe that'll improve slightly soon, since I finally manage to exercise regularly. And I can't believe that I'm saying this, but I - couch potato no. 1 - am actually enjoying it. I'm having fun at gym classes *shakes head disblievingly* This week was best so far. Our regular coach was sick and the woman who filled in for her had never done that class (a special class for overweight people) before. God, she did torture us quite a bit. Much more demanding than usual, but apart from one moment when I had to slow down a bit I managed to keep up with her :) Unfortunately I forgot to ask what other classes she's giving. They might be worth looking into. Maybe the guy at the reception desk can tell me next week. Now I need to set a new goal. I think another 10% would be great, as this would lead me below 100kg for the first time in nearly a decade. Plus, I'm planning to go on holiday in June (watching some musicals in London) and I finally want to be able to buy something like a souvenir t-shirt that fits properly. Oh, and I want to reward myself for reaching the 10%. I really want to have one of those charms bracelets (bonus: I could add more charms for more goals reached), but on the other hand a mat for some exercise on my living room floor would be great either. What do you think?
I'm almost there. At my 10%-goal that is. After 3 weeks where I didn't really lose much, this week I started exercising (played fun versions of rugby, handball and basketball for about 90 minutes on Thursday), and that seems to have helped. I've lost another 800g, and now am only half a kilo away from that first 10%. Hopefully I'll be there next week or the week after. So my current stats are: starting weight: 120,3 kg last week: 109,3 kg current weight: 108,5 kg goal weight: 76-80 kg
What has been bothering me a little lately is that I thought you couldn't really see those nearly 12kg loss. I'm aware that this is probably only because I see myself every day in the mirror, and small continuous changes don't register too well, but still, I needed to see a real change. Which happened today: I went shopping for a pair of trousers (a "real" pair of jeans, not the sweatpants I bought last week), and *hooray!* I'm down one size. At the belly they're still a bit tight (not uncomfortably tight, though), but the real difference is my backside: so much better in this tighter pants than in my other pairs, which all looked a little too big by now. So: *hooray* for shopping trip, as it restored my motivation a lot.
ok, so i'm back. haven't posted here in a while... It's been going up and down since last post but I finally shed what I put on for the holiday (+ last week) and even lost 2 additional pounds! I'm very happy.
SW: 94.7 kg / 208.7 lbs CW: 85.2 kg / 187.8 lbs GW: 85 kg / 187.4 lbs (my 10% goal) So very Very close!!!
So for a little more than one week I was on holiday in the UK (returned home yesterday, after involuntarily spending one night in an airport hotel. Love the snow...). And even though my scales told me this morning that I lost weight during this time (minus 0.5 kg, so overall I lost 9.1 kg now) I still feel horrible, because I know I did not lose it in a very healthy way. Instead of eating proper meals, veggies etc. I ran around the city until I was starving and then got whatever was available (like a cheeseburger or something...). Ew! So basically what I did was eating too little and when I did it was the wrong choice of food. Although even the city of Cardiff tried to get me back on track. I found this on a board near the bay, and honestly, I had a good laugh at the fact they announced weigh-ins as an 'activity' right between the opening times for a visitor centre and the announcement for an upcoming concert :D
Still, I need to go back onto the plan. Will make my meal plans for the weekend now, then go shopping (through the snow... good exercise). I want to reach a weight where I don't have the feeling to ruin my holiday pics. One chin less would really help with that:
