“morning” girls! I didn’t weight myself this morning, but I did yesterday morning. So, here it is:
Last week: 136.7
Yay! I love the feeling of losing a little weight, even though I have like 10 pounds to go! How did you guys do?
What healthy snacks do you eat to help with cravings?

Hey Rosie! Congrats on the weight loss 🙂
I still have not weighed myself. But I have been working out!! Last night I did a 45 minute bike 🙂 Tonight I am going to run and do some abs!!
I know I am being weird about the weight thing, but I can’t bring myself to do it just yet. I’m planning to get on the scale in 2 weeks once we’re settled in our new house.

Congrats on the loss, Rosie!
Good job with the 45 minutes on the bike, OttowaBride!
I worked out three times last week and did reasonably well eating during the week. The weekend is still extremely difficult for me — we went out with friends to my favoritest restaurant ever, and who can pass up a seafood chimichanga? Not I.
But all and all, I am down to 143 from last week’s 144. Slowly but surely I’m getting there haha.

Last week: 203
Who knew cutting out all those extra munchies throught the day would help so much! It’s a pain to keep track of calories, but it’s easier for me to do than telling myself not to eat. That gives me more incentive, I think. My workouts are getting harder, too.
Congrats on the loss Rosie, and Amaryliss!
Ottawa-I think it’s cool you’re aiting to get on the scale! I always get really intimidated. Especially since Fiance and I also tend to go out more on weekends!

Hello workout bees! I am new to the thread and I absolutely abhor working out! So I hope that being a part of this helps my motivation and kicks my flaccid ass into gear!!
I weighed myself via wii fit this morning… here are my stats!
GOAL WEIGHT: 130
GOAL BMI: 21
As for the snacks… i am obsessed with fresh veggies. I keep a bag of sliced cucumber, celery stalks, and baby carrots at work at all times and whenever I am hungry, i sprinkle a bit of salt on them and knosh away!

Hello friends! Congrats on your loss.
I’m working out like a fool so hopefully I have had a loss as well. I didn’t get a chance to step on the scale this morning. I overslept (and there was snow – when is there not snow?).

Great job girls!
I’m down about 1lbs from last week but it’s ‘the time of the month’ so I’m a bit bloated *ugh*!
Today I’m dealing with a wicked migraine, I think my body wants cheese… but it’s not getting it!!
Goal for this week: Run 30 minutes with no intervals, gym it 5 days, eat clean!
Post # 11
@ Emshaw – I’m craving cheese as well. Trying to resist. BLAH!!!!!!!

@completelyrandomsally: Aren’t cheese cravings the WORST!! I haven’t had any dairy in three days so I’m hoping this ‘withdrawal’ is almost over!

Good evening ladies! I just had to pop in to say I just ran 45 minutes!!! I am so excited. It’s the longest run I have done since getting back on the wagon (longest ever was about 65 minutes). I am very proud of myself and felt like sharing 🙂

Hooray Ottawabride!!! It takes so much effort to run that long, great job!!

@Emshaw – Thanks! And congrats to you on your weight loss!!! (especially with the bloating! awesome!)

Sounds like we’re making some progress! Keep it up. I’m SUPER excited to report my weigh in this week:
Last week: 138.5
This week: 136 (!!!!)
Loss: 2.5 (in one week!; Total: 6)
Granted, I’ve got nothing on @His Barista, @toothfairyb, or @Ms.teddy (AWESOME progress, ladies!), but I’m feeling GOOD about the 2.5 loss! And here’s the interesting thing: last week, I went to the gym a total of 4 times, but 3 out of those 4 were pure strength resistance; the other time was yoga. Prior to last week, I was going an avg of 5 times a week and almost all of it was some form of cardio (spin, burn bliss, yoga, etc.)…and I’d only lost 4 pounds in a month. There is SOMETHING in this whole strength resistance plan. In ONE week, I’ve lost 50% of what I’d lost in FOUR weeks.
So, my experiment for the next 5 weeks (to be shared with all you lovely ladies, of course) is to follow my PT’s plan – 3 times a week, do strength resistance (following the New Rules of Lifting for Women – NROLFW – Stage One, pg. 140-141) & add up to 2 times a week of intervals (1 min flat out/ 2 min 1/3 to 1/2 half speed for 20 min). I think I may get better results with this than with the cardio I was doing before. This week’s weigh in has got me bought in!
Edit: please note, I’m taking the advice of a personal trainer session (it was free with my membership), not actually working with a trainer. Man, tho’, I wish I had that kind of money to get one!
