  • Wedding: .

Current Weight:   55.9kg

Goal Weight:        Under 50kg

Height:                 1.52m (5’0″)

Goal Date:            May next year? No real goal date.

Weight loss so far: -1kg cry

Reason:                  I mainly want to get fit rather than lose weight. But I also want to look good for my *hopefully* upcoming engagment and wedding, and just in general.

Program:                4 at home workouts (arms, core, booty, legs) that I rotate between + yoga.

Eating style:           Fairly healthy home cooked meals, everything in moderation is the theory.

Fav. Healthy Snack: Crackers with cucumber slices and a smidge of cream cheese… Or peanut paste stuffed dates.

Favourite Exercise:  I hate all exercise… But probably swimming in summer.

Struggled this week with: Exercising… Only did 2 of my 4 workouts. I also ate a whole lotta chocolate arrghh!

Did awesome this week with: Not much – it’s been a pretty bad week so I feel like this thread will be good for me! haha

  • Wedding: August 2012

Current Weight: 169

Goal Weight: 140

Height: 5’4″

Goal Date: i’d really like to be down 15 by xmas, and the remainder by the time by daughter is 6 months old (so march)

Weight loss so far: not counting the 30 i lost from giving birth 4 weeks ago, down 8

Reason: get back into shape, and lose the weight from both kids (never lost that extra 15 after my son). I really enjoy working out and have missed it…also to model healthy living for my kids

Program: fast metabolism diet for now (can’t work out yet)

Eating style: whole foods, gluten and dairy free

Fav. Healthy Snack: fruit, celery with almond butter, carrots and hummus 

Favourite Exercise: i love bootcamp or crossfit-style workouts, but i have to ease back in so im wanting to try something a little less intense. Ive asked my husband for a beachbody subscription for xmas and might start with piyo.

Struggled this week with: exhaustion from baby being up so much makes it way easier to justify bad foods. I had pizza for dinner friday, but decided to just pretend it didn’t happen and get right back on the train Saturday morning.

Did awesome this week with: i didn’t cheat for the other 34 meals/snacks, so 1 out of 35 isn’t so bad.

  • Wedding: June 2019

Finally out of goldenrod season and exercising a lot more ๐Ÿ™‚ I have lost 5 pounds since Thanksgiving! I’ve cut out carbs from two of my three meals and replaced it with celery and peanut butter, which is delicious and very filling (never thought to replace carbs with it – genius move)! Just a few more pounds to go before my goal weight but I know the holidays will suck haha!

  • Wedding: April 2019

Current Weight: 154.0

Goal Weight: 130.0

Height: 5’4″

Goal Date: April 2019

Weight loss so far: That’s a tough question to answer! Haha. When I graduated college in 2010 I was a wopping 211 pounds (oof). I dropped to 160 in 2011 and my weight sort of fluctuated between 160-175 for a number of years. I was supposed to get married in June 2017 and dropped to about 148 at the time. I ended up having to cancel my wedding and my weight crept up over the past year an a half. I actively started trying to lose the weight again on October 1, 2018 at which point I weighed 163. So I have dropped 9 pounds in the past 2.5 months.

Reason: I am FINALLY going to get down the aisle this April. My dress zips but it is TIGHT. I think I need about 5-8 more pounds before the dress fits comfortably.

Program: 1200-1500 calories a day. No specific diet plan, though I try to eat more protein than carbs. I also do Barre about 3 times a week and try cardio 2 times a week.

Eating style: I love fish, especially salmon- lots of lean proteins, roasted veggies. 

Fav. Healthy Snack: Roasted sweet potato!

Favourite Exercise: Pure Barre. I’m addicted

Struggled this week with: My fiance was CRAVING pizza on Sunday and my mind and body were both saying no… but I caved and we ordered pizza…

Did awesome this week with: I have a CRAZY busy week (it’s concert week– I’m a HS music teacher),  but I still dragged my booty to the gym yesterday even though I was exhausted!

I have lost about 25kg since the start of the year and I am now pretty much at my goal weight.

Easiest thing I have ever done, by far.

Current Weight: 135 lbs

Goal Weight: 120 lbs

Height: 5’1”

Goal Date: May 31, 2019

Reason: My SO was recently diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. His organs have not been targeted which the doctors believe is largely due to his age (27). He has been off work for over a month and is beginning to feel like himself again. He needs to begin eating clean and living a healthier, stress-reduced lifestyle in order for his condition to go into remission and stay in remission. I too need to live a healthier lifestyle and would like to support him by working with him in making positive life choices.

Program: Starting January 1, 2019 we will be practicing a new regime that includes 4 workout days a week, we will continue playing soccer on Tuesday nights, on Sundays we will be creating our menu for the week, on Mondays we will be grocery shopping and meal prepping and on Tuesdays and Thursdays we will be maintaining a Vegetarian lifestyle. (My SO’s physical activity is dependent on his health as he is not to play sports or exercise; however, he will be adapting healthier eating habits.)

Eating style: I follow the Fitgirlsguide meal plan; however, I adapt some of my own dinners as I burn more calories (on average) than the guide provides.

Fav. Healthy Snack: Gala apples!

Favourite Exercise: Weight lifting. Leg day is my favourite!

 

Although I am not planning to start for another two weeks, I did want to begin following this thread as I need to be held accountable! I will be checking in with you ladies on January 8th (plus or minus a day) to follow-up with my first week! “Fit girls don’t quit!”

Fellow Fitness Bees!

I said I would come back and I have! ๐Ÿ™‚

Weight (as of January 9, 2019): 135.8 lbs

Body Fat % (as of January 9, 2019): 29.1%

Program: My start date for my program was, as previously mentioned, January 9, 2019. There was an unfortunate death in our family which is why the start date was post-poned (always remember to self-care!) My SO and I have agreed to making a weekly menu on Sundays and grocery shopping and meal prepping on Mondays. I mainly follow the fitgirlsguide meal plan and workouts but also incorporate heavier weight lifting.

Weekly Goal (something I have added!): Ask your local gym about the beginner yoga classes that are offered with your membership (I discovered there is a Monday class at 12PM which I expect to join to increase flexibility.)

I plan to weigh in on a bi-weekly basis so, in turn, expect an update on January 23, 2019! Let us bring in the new year on a high note! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ
