I LOVE THE 20 POUND CLIPPIE!!!!

I have been chasing it for over a month, I think. Two weeks in England threw me off a little, so I had to play some catch up when I got back. A mini-goal of mine was to get to 139 before July 4th. This week I tried something different and ADDED calories into my plan (a chocolate protein shake between breakfast and lunch for another 220 calories, 6 carbs and 3 grams of fat, I think). I could have just added a small protein based meal, but I wanted to just have the shake for convenience.

Well, this expirement worked, I'm happy to say! I will post to the check-in thread as well that I lost 3.5 pounds this week! I had been curious about adding calories to my plan, especially from protein, since I have been lifting weights pretty regularly and doing a decent amount of cardio. I didn't want to eat too few calories. Reading SnackyStacky's "maintenance" weight loss results was just the kind of push I needed to give this a go and it payed off. Ross also lost a few pounds this week by adding more calories to his plan. He is under 200 for the first time in probably 8 years!!! He weighed 199.5 today (ONEderland for him) and he is thrilled!!!

Bouncing off the walls today! My next, and last goal, is to get a 25 pound clippie!!! :) That's it for me, the only clippie I want after that is the red GOAL one!!!!!

OH, ONE MORE THING!!! I haven't been under 140 since the late 80s, so this is a REALLY big deal for me today!!!!!! It's been at least 13 years, probably 14, since I have been in the 130s! I know the first trip we made to England in 1988 I had lost a bunch of weight (the unhealthy way, not eating!) and had gotten down to 130 for a very short (and unhealthy) time. This time I am doing it right, exercising, EATING, and being patient (most of the time!)

How wonderful that you are doing this the healthy way this time. This time those pounds will stay off! I'll bet you will have that 25 lb clippie in no time at all, but you won't get to keep it long because you will have that ultimate prize....the red goal clippie!:D :D

Karen, you are such an inspiration! Keep up the good work!:D

Karen...Way To Go!!! You are such an Inspiration!!!

Isn't it funny how different things work for different people. You added a few more calories this week, I had to cut calories out of my plan this week...but the results were the same!!! (I think yours sounds better though...LOL).

You are the reason I really started to exercise....from something you said about 2 months ago...really got me thinking...now I am an exercising fool!!!

Congrats and Thank you for working so hard and being so determined!!! You have helped me sooo much!!

WOW- since then? Wish I could think of a good song from the 80's to bring back all those memories- okay here's a few "We Built This City on Rock & Roll", "Kyrie Elaison", "Cupid-Draw Back your Bow-ow-ow", okay that's about as far as my brain could take me- here's to a GREAT WOO-HOO reliving the 80's with your AWESOME weigh in!!

And I bet you look better now than you did back then with all the rollerblading and workouts!

YOU ROCK!!!

Karen,

I almost spelled your name wrong! I'm trying to figure this out. Your goal under your clippie says 139 and you are now 138.5. So does that mean you are at your ultimate GOAL or is that an intermediate/2nd goal?

Either way, you have done a fantastic job and kudos to Ross as well!

aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh the 130s. Now I covet that!

Congratulations Karen, you have worked super super hard and consistently to get where you have earned your way to be! You are a lean muscle machine!!!! Pretty soon you'll be trading up that clippie one more time, than once again for good for the red shiny one! Oh how cool! I'm sure you will before summer's end!

You are inspiring to me and to all of us, that persisentence and patience and never giving up will work! Have a fabulous weekend with Ross, you guys must be floating on air!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Oh Karen!!!!! {{{{{HUGS}}}}}
I can FEEL how happy and excited you are just by reading your post!!!! And seeing how happy you are really makes me happy!!!!

I have been wondering how your 'experiment' was going to go! DH is stuck in a plateau at 180 and his trainer suggested adding a protein bar or shake during the day! You were RIGHT ON!!!!! I can't wait to share your wonderful news with him!!!

You are doing such a wonderful job, Karen!! You don't give up. You look for ways to change things or improve other points. This is truly a new lifestyle for you and it shows!! Enjoy that fab body! You earned it!!

CONGRATS to you and Ross!!! I want to see more pictures!!!
