Morning ladies! I went to the gym 3 times last week. My diet has been pretty good though. I bought the Insanity workout system off Ebay so I will be starting that soon. How are you ladies doing this week?
@SweetAdeline: I hope that you feel better soon! I hope you reach your goal soon!

Happy Monday! I’m headed to the gym today after work, and also shooting for Wednesday yoga and Thursday cardio too. Eating wise – healthy so far but it’s only 10:45 am, haha!
How is everyone else faring so far?

Good morning! Starting the week with a morning workout is feeling pretty good even though I did not want to workout this morning. BLAH!
Starting Weight = 262.2
Engagetment Pics = 215
Wedding Day = 220.6
3.22.10 = 221.2
(gained 6 pounds during birthday celebrations/Easter – why do I gain so much when I don’t go off plan too much?)
Today = 221.0
Lost = .2 (but really about 6.2 since Easter)
Total Lost = 41.2 pounds in the last year
Another 40+ to go!
Goals for the week
- exercise every morning before work (walk/ran 1.5 miles this morning)
- (maybe) surprise myself with double workouts this week
- knit every night for stress release
- eat healthy/fresh foods every day
- 64 ounces of water a day
I’m 6 pounds a way from my next goal. Once I’m at that weight for at least a week (or lower), I get a mani/pedi. Woo-hoo!

@MissPumpkinPenguin: Have fun at the gym!
@completelyrandomsally: Good job being 6 pounds from your goal!

Last Week: 138
This Week: 137
This weekend was rough diet-wise. Still lost a pound this week though, so this week is going to be me being a strict lady with the diet and exercise! I went swimsuit shopping…ugh what a depressing experience. I had a muffin top in all but one I tried one. Guess which one I bought 😉
Ladies you are ROCKING! Keep it up, you’re what’s keeping me going! 😀

@KansasPrincess: Congrats on the loss. Sorry your diet wasn’t good though and stupid evil swimsuits!

Hey ladies! I only worked out 3 times last week but I was on my feet for most of the weekend so that has to count, right?! I was in cooking class for 6 hours then watched roller derby then volunteered at a fund raising event that lasted 5 hours. Between Saturday and Sunday I was on my feet for about 14 hours!
Anyway, I’m taking a break from working out today so I can catch up on running errands and just to recover. Hoping to hit the gym tomorrow and get back into it!

@kwago: I hope that your feet feel okay after all that standing! Recovering would be a good thing to make sure that you aren’t pushing yourself.

Hi ladies! Last week was so busy that I forgot to post, so here’s my two-week update.
Starting weight in early January: 176.5
Two weeks ago: 158.5
Last week: 158
This week: 155
Loss totals: -0/5/-3/-21.5
I have managed to meet and surpass every weight goal I set for myself and it feels great! I still have three weeks before my first fitting, so I’m now shooting for a new weight goal of 150. My routine is still essentially the same, I try to do 30-45 minutes of weights followed by 45 minutes of cardio, six days a week. I lift with my arms one day, then my legs the following day. Lately I have been cutting back to about 4-5 workouts a week just because I’ve been too busy to fit six in most weeks. I’ve been eating sensibly and trying to limit how much bread, rice, pasta and potatoes I eat.
@completelyrandomsally: great idea to reward yourself with a mani/pedi, keep up the great work, you’re so close!!
@[email protected] Swimsuit shopping has to be one of the most depressing things!

@wagswifetobe: Congrats on meeting your weight goal! I’m sure you can reach your goal by your fitting.

@MissAsB: Thanks! I never would have dreamed that I would be doing so well, just five more pounds, I’m going to keep pushing!! I haven’t heard of the Insanity workout before, could you explain?

@wagswifetobe: It is a set of 13 DVDs most of them don’t use any weights. It is high intensity training so you have more time doing high intensity and then short rest periods. I saw it on an infomercial and there are a few girls on here who really like it. I will post about it once I get it!

I don’t know exactly what I did this past week (because I thought I met my plataeu), but I met my goal weight!!! I’m 174lbs!!!
I worked out 4 times last week and the only change I can really point out is I added broccli sprouts to my diet (maybe that was the pusher?)
I lost 6 pounds and my measurements will be up next week (I measure evry month, to see the change).
I’m so excited!!! I haven’t weighed this little since highschool and that was a good 10 years ago!!!
P.S. I for got to say congratulations to you ladies!!! Keep up the good work!!! I was too excited to remember :)!!!

Thanks!! I’m still going to work out and try to lose more weight (my arms still need some toning lol!). I also want to see how far I can go before the dress fitting.
