It’s been a while since I checked in with our incredible shrinking bees here in the hive!
How are you doing with your shape-up plan?
I’m down 28lbs since the beginning of May, I’m excited! Tomorrow I’ll have my body fat %age checked as well (I do it every 2 mos). Last time I was down 1.4%, I’m hoping I can make it to 3% total down — we’ll see!
How are you doing in your efforts? Anyone reach their goal yet?
Anyone got before/after photos to share?

I’ve been working out and using Wii Fit to track, but I’m almost the same as I was when I started. The original scale I use says I’ve lost a few pounds, so maybe I have. I’m getting stressed out at work as well as with wedding stuff, and I’m an emotional/stress eater. I’m trying to drink a lot of water instead of snacking.
That’s awesome that you’re down 28 pounds! Way to go!

At my gym they have this….steering wheel kind of thingy…lol….hold it with both hands for a few seconds and, viola, it tells you your bf %
It’s hard to get motivated, but so worth it! And I’m an emotional eater too so I feel your pain, I had a crazy day today and it’s been all I could do to not eat eat eat.
Hang in there ladies!
How’s everyone else doing? I know we had lots of buzz in the hive about shaping up, and I’m really curious to hear how things are coming along

I was doing really well – lost about 6/7lbs, was working out twice a day, loving it…kicking ass and taking names…then I got pneumonia. I’m getting back slowly and not torturing myself too much about it.

I’ve lost over 40 lbs since last February, but that was long before I got engaged. I’m still planning to lose about 20 lbs to get to my ultimate goal weight, but whether I do that before or after the wedding is irrelevant. My dress is ordered, I feel more comfortable in my skin than ever before, and I’m going to look great whether or not I lose another pound between now and March.
By the way, I’ve had great success with the Volumetrics eating plan. It’s a book, and it’s a lifestyle change, not simply a diet.
Good luck to everyone!

I am on week 2 of the “Couch to 5K” plan that I read about on this board. I’m hanging in there but haven’t lost any weight yet but the fiance SWEARS he can see a positive change in my backside.. 😉
So I’m keeping it up! But I still hate to jog. I must say it’s getting a little bit easier.

I’ve been lazy and eating very poorily since the wedding. But I’m ready to get into shape. I cut out pop and I’m trying to not salt my food (very hard for this salt addict) and to get out and get walking. Small changes but it’s a start.

I’ve been doing well!!! I had a 6 month follow up with my allergist yesterday, and I was exactly TWENTY pounds lighter than I was six months before!! Awesome!!! (Naked on the scale at home I’m 24 pounds lighter, but ya know!). I am starting to get the comments from people at work about looking thinner, which is motivating, so I’m excited! I’m really just trying to keep a handle on my emotional overeating and pay attention to portion sizes. Plus I have finally reached the point where I look forward to working out because I feel great mentally and physically afterwards.
