Good Morning! Hope you all had a great weekend and are happy with your results today. I’m not HAPPY, but I’m not completely pissed!
Last week: 138
Gain/loss: -.9 Almost a pound! BUT I’m still up from start 🙁
I’m finding it hard to be motivated to do my workout videos. Are you working out at a gym or at home? What are you doing at the gym or home?

so i’m JUST starting to get on the workout regiment for our e-session coming up in may! 😉
i weighed in on our wiifit last night… and BOY was i depressed! (not that i think i’m overweight) BUT i have gained 7 pounds in the last 8 months…. HAPPY WEIGHT is what i call it! LOL.
anyway, here’s my goal
2-2.5 lbs a week = 2 months…
my diet: yogurt, fruit, snack for breakfast, lean cuisine for lunch, eating a well-rounded dinner before 8pm
workout regiment: yoga, wiifit, at home gym with – treadmill, weights, a manual elliptical (old school), and one of the pull-up bed machines…
we’ll see how this goes!

good morning! I had a rough weekend – have to get back into it. I’ve been going to the gym a couple days a week. Sometimes it helps to have a few workouts that I can do at home while watching a show that I like (i.e. a weight routine and then jumprope/jumping jacks in place) so that at least i’m enjoying myself! also, i’ve been trying to find more active activities – laser tag this weekend was really fun and we’re in ice skating season, so that’s helpful! You can do it! Slow and steady. I’m getting back on the horse after my eating fest weekend, so I’m with you!

Good morning! I’ve lost this week, but I’m still not to my losest on the thread. Frustrating, but I’m keeping with it!
I’ve found that if I actually write everything down in my food journal, I lose weight. Period.
I’m hoping I can workout tonight. I had some serious back pain issues last night so I might just need to go for a walk or something low-key tonight.

Last week: 156.6
This week: 153.4!!!!
Loss of 3.2 pounds! FINALLY! After whining to my doctor last week about how I’ve been trying to lose 10 pounds forever, he told me what I already know. “If you want to lose weight, you have to eat less. I don’t care how healthy you eat, eating pounds of flax seed is going to make you fat.” Not overly delicate, but what I obviously needed to hear!
@Rosie – My Fiance is a great motivator to do my videos. He started his own little fitness routine, so now I want to keep up with him!

That is awesome that he helps you! My Fiance just makes fun of me while I’m doing them cuz I look like a dork! GREAT motivation!!! hahaha!

I am working out at home too….and sometimes it is hard to get motivated!
Anyways, here are my stats
Start 162 – but I bought a new digital scale that weighs me at 3lbs heavier than the old one, so I’m going to adjust things…
So real start 165
Weight last week: 156.8
so -.9 ha ha ha.
I am definitely at the plateau point after a 10lb weight loss – which is awesome in one respect, it’s nice to get that initial weight off, but it’s also kind of frustrating, b/c obviously I had it to lose and just adjusting diet made a difference, but now I’m clearly at the point where the progress has definitely slowed and I need to get my bum in gear and exercise, LOL. Playing soccer with the youth group at my church last night helped….until I took shot directly in the uterus, ha ha. Ok that’s my ramble. Keep up the good work everyone!

I find it way easier to “workout” by doing other active things, like soccer, hiking, etc. Its just so hard for me to put a video in and do a routine!

Well I am proud of myself for actually getting up on Saturday and running 2 miles and lifting some weights. I’m not always good about working out on the weekends.
Tonight I am planning on doing the 30-day shred, tomorrow is more running at the gym. Since the scale I use is at the gym I will have to post my weight tomorrow. Hoping for a loss!
Tried my dress on again as I was home at my parents, and it does fit, just the tiniest bit snug so I really only need to lose a few. I hope I can do it!
Workout schedule this week (hold me to this!!):
Mon – 30-day shred, weights
Tues – run 2.5 miles
Wed – lift weights
Thurs – run 2.5 miles
Fri – rest day
Sat – 1 hour kickboxing class
Sun – run 3 miles

Good Morn…er…AFTERNOON! Wow, lots of west coasters haha.
I weighed myself just now and I am 125.2 lbs. Ugh. I ate really badly this weekend, so I’m sure that’s why I seemed to have gained 5 lbs these past two weeks. I did start my workout regime on Friday, though, so today I’m going to eat well and do a workout and just keep trucking. I’m hoping to get down to 122 this Friday (I think I’m holding water weight, so that’s why I think its feasible). Hope everyone is doing fantastic!

Whee! I am currently starting week 8 of P90X, which is the second Recovery Week. Don’t be fooled though – you still workout, but you don’t lift weights. Tonight is Yoga X, which is actually killer. I fear this more than doing pull-ups – it requires much more strength then I ever could have imagined.

Yoga is really hard!!!! I can’t do it for a couple reasons:
1. I laugh! Some of the positions and how serious people are makes me crack up!
2. It ummm… really… makes me “want” FI! I think its all the stretching and gettin blood to flow to different areas!!!! Fiance really doesn’t mind when I do it!
3. I don’t know how to use some of those muscles!!! I couldn’t believe how hard it really is!

Hey everyone! This week was less than impressive for me. It was my birthday weekend and I ate terribly. I managed to get to the gym 4 times, but didn’t see any weight loss 🙁 Oh well, back to it this week!
Starting weight: 178.6
Last week: 174.6 (old scale)
