The BEEgest Loser is back for another 4 week round!
Want to join in? It’s easy! Just reply to this post with your starting weight and a little info about you… what your goals are for the next four weeks, the areas you feel you need to work on, etc. Or you can send me a PM if you’d like to keep your weight private.
Drop by a few times a week to let everyone know how you are doing and to provide support to the other Bees participating. The more activity on the thread the better, and I’m always around if you need anything! I’m already planning out the workout challenges and I’m pulling a few recipes for everyone’s enjoyment (and a new avatar for the weekly winners!)
Weigh-ins: The weigh in thread will be posted to the fitness board on Thursday evenings (this is mostly to accomodate any east coast bees, since I’m on the west coast) and you will have until 3:30pm on Friday to get me your current weight.
Good Luck Ladies!

I’m going to call my starting weight 145.0….little bit up from my last weigh-in, but that seemed to have been a lucky weigh-in and this seems more consistent to what I’ve been seeing the past couple weeks.
What time zone is the 3:30 weigh-in? Lol, I usally weigh when I get home Fridays at like 5cst….so if I need to change that, I want to be aware!
Still down a solid 5lbs from the start of the last Bee-est loser!
Goals, stay on track a bit better with my calorie limit, keep working out 4x a week, but try to up the intensity to break out of the mini-rut my weight has been in for the last couple weeks!

Yay! I love having a little bit of accountability.
This mornings starting weight = 160
Goals: Exercise more, eat healthy, lose 1 lb/week.(or more of course…)

@hisgoosiegirl: Timezone is pacific, so you should be fine!
My current weight is 184.8 which is up just a bit from the last round.
I’ve been really really bad this past week… no gym (even though I’m still hitting my 10,000 step goal everyday) and even though we’ve eaten bad, I have been watching the portions I eat so maybe that’s helping?
My goals are to get back into a normal workout routine, no more of this 10 days in a row and then nothing for 7, it’s just not good. Another thing is to continue to work on my portion control and really checking out menus if we are going to be eating out.

Starting weight as of this morning = 154.6
I’ve been on a weight-loss journey for over 5 years and have lost about 120 pounds… the last 20 have been the hardest for me! My body loves to stick right around 160… but I’m not comfortable there.
Goals: Exercise more regularly, continue eating low carb/high fat/high protein/gluten free

@Mrs.Mittens: awesome! thanks for letting me know!
and I hear you – this week was not a good eating week! ice cream and drink for a friend’s 21st, lots of drinking Fri night (but oh so fun!), deep dish pizza Saturday….with leftovers yesterday, today, and tomorrow (but, hey, I’m splitting one piece over two days, so that’s good, right?)
And Mexican this coming weekend for V-Day. But that’s my only upcoming cheat, I swear!

@hisgoosiegirl: Mexican is my one cheat for the week too! That’s what are doing for valentine’s day!
Oh, the other thing I’m trying this week is for my sweet tooth. In the bulk section at the grocery store this weekend they sell these chocolate truffles that I love, so I bought 5, one for each night and they are about 90 calories each. So if I get a craving I can nibble on that. We’ll see, but I’m feeling pretty good about it.

@Mrs.Mittens: I’ve noticed if I don’t have candy for a while, I don’t miss it. But when I do have something, then I want it every day again!
The other thing you mentioned, the 10 days/7 days off, are you meaning that you work out that many days in a row and then quit? I’ve found (well, it’s been working for 7 weeks now) is to work out about 4 times a week. I get a random weekday off (mine is Tuesday) and then off for Fri/Sat. Then we go Sunday and work out a little longer/harder than normal. That way I don’t get burned out from trying to go every day, and if something does come up (like the birthday event this week), I have an easy ‘switch’ day, so I still get my 4 workouts in.
Oh, and if you are on myfitnesspal, I would totally add you 🙂
oh, and yay for Mexican food for Valentine’s Day!

@hisgoosiegirl & mittens111211 : we went out to Mexican on Saturday, I counted that as our Valentines day celebration! It was really good too, we had margaritas that were awesome 🙂

Starting weight: 144lbs. Not really looking to lose weight persay but I do have a bit of a paunch I’d like trimmed ;D
Goals: Do situps every day, at least 10 to start. Also go to the gym more often and more consistantly.
Cheat: Not really dieting since I tend to eat healthy anyway but I will reward myself with more sushi hehe ;D

@hisgoosiegirl: I’m hoping it will work as like a ‘detox’ kind of thing because I’m the same way, I can go for months without ice cream, etc but once I get back in my system I can’t stop eating it!
The ten day stretch wasn’t like an instense workout everday but it was like I went to the gym everyday even if was just walking on the treadmill and the 7 day off was not going to the gym at all but just walking during lunch, etc.
So I’m really just looking for more consistency. I really like to workout on weekends in the morning and those are usually my most intense workouts so I like to take Monday and Friday off for that reason. That’s the routine that I’m going to try and stick with but I’m going to the gym tonight because I haven’t been in a week!
I’m not on myfitness pal, sadly. I joined LoseIt when I first started loosing weight and I tried to switch over but it seemed like such a pain since I was setup on LoseIt.
You should join the Fitocracy group that meerkat started, it’s cool! Look for the thread on the Fitness boards.

Starting at 172.8 which two pounds down since the last one. I feel my weight loss has been slowing down so hoping this gives me that extra push again since my wedding is in 2 months tomorrow! (talk about stress eating!)
My goal is to get to 165 in the next four weeks. I want to up my protein intake and do a better job at spacing out my meals.

@Mrs.Mittens: I did join! But argh, I just couldn’t get into it, lol
Post # 14

Post # 15
Starting weight is 167.7 (as of this morning) which isn’t that great, considering that means for a week I did NADA. But I have to get back in the mindset and I’m so glad to be doing this again, it helped me so much the last time around!!!
For 4 weeks, My goal is to lose 6 lbs (1.5 per week) and go to the gym at LEAST 4 times a week. Please be ready–when I go to the gym I’m going to post on here my workout and calories burned etc…it seems the only way I will truly do something is to have someone(s) hold me accountable, and this board does it for me.
I’m like you Mittens! I will workout great (I consider ‘great’ to be actually GOING to the gym and doing something for at least 30 mintues lol) for like 2 weeks then I’m just dead for a good week. It’s frustrating on my part!
My FH is pressuring me badly to go to Cheesecake Factory tonight–even though we went to Joe’s Crab Shack this weekend and a great diner yesterday for supper. ARGH! I love fried mac n cheese. But I’m being strong!
And we don’t celebrate Valentine’s (I get my 3 year old balloons and new books lol) but otherwise we just let it go, so at least I don’t have that pressure on me!
