View Full Version : WISH - Thanksgiving Challenge - Week 5 Check In

10-11-2004, 04:01 PM
Another week down! (And, hopefully, more lbs. gone for everyone! :teeth: ) I am happy to report that my 3yo dd's princess birthday party is OVER & I survived! It's a miracle! However, I did lick a few too many spoons, when I was making the 5 layer castle cake! :tongue:

I hope everyone had a great week to report! I am holding off to report until I weigh in at my WW meeting when I rejoin Thursday. I have a problem holding myself accountable, so WW meetings are the best for me. I am excited about it! :flower1:

I've emailed some of our challengers that we haven't heard from lately. So, if you have a WISH buddy on here, tell them to let us know how they are doing! Good or bad, we are all in this together! Here's our updated list for the week...

For a total of.... :rockband: 156 lbs. gone!!! Granted, we have had several people that haven't checked in lately, but our group lost 27 lbs. last week!!! Way to go everyone!! :jumping1:

Now, it's your turn!! We're ready to hear your weekly results! If you had a loss, tell us if there was anything you did differently that may have contributed to it.

It turned out to be a good week - I lost 2.5 pounds. :D I'm now 6/8 for the challenge. It was a busy week - I think I was too busy working on my house to eat. :p

I'm down a pound since last time I checked in. That makes me 3/30, only 27 more to go! :eek:

10-11-2004, 05:02 PM
Slow week, but at least I'm going in the right direction. I lost 1/2 pound, making me 11.5/15. :)

10-11-2004, 05:52 PM
Hiya everyone :wave:

Hopefully by the end of the month I will have a good weight loss to report. I have really increased my exercise routine lately. As well as swimming, I am now running on the treadmill as well as using the stepper and the aerobic glider.

Have a great week.

10-12-2004, 12:38 AM
Not a good week for me. I was sick & fell into the "feed a cold, starve a fever" trap. Needless to say, I didn't have a fever! I had bounced up the 2 lbs I'd already lost, but I'm happy to say I did manage to re-lose those 2 lbs so I'm still 2/8 for this challenge.

10-12-2004, 08:41 AM
One more pound gone. That takes me to 6/15. I was happy to see a loss at all with the weekend I had. If I saw it I ate it.

Hope everyone has a great week!!!

Man, don't you hate those times!! :mickeybar It happens to all of us. And unfortunately, mine tend to last longer than a weekend! :rolleyes: Time to jump back on track! You can do it! :hug:

Thank you for the words of encouragemnt disneyfan551.

Fortunately I am back on track this morning. Mine also usually tend to last longer. I am just determined to do it this time and that attutude is not going to get me there.


10-12-2004, 11:40 AM
Down another 1.2 pounds for a total of 8.4 pounds with only 6.6 pounds to go!!!


10-12-2004, 01:58 PM
Im down 1.5 pounds. The long weekend was a little too long and I indulged last night, the night before weigh-in! But I'll take it!

Im 7/25:Pinkbounc :Pinkbounc And back on track!

10-12-2004, 11:36 PM
Thank you Tiffany, for carrying over my misplaced loss post from the Week 4 thread. ;)

8.5/10 - Shocking really, but I've been sick, stressed, and haven't exercised. I DO NOT suggest this program though. :(



10-13-2004, 07:47 AM
I'm at 140 as of this morning but can't remember what I started this challenge at. I know I'm at least down that pesky half a pound from last week. Ugh this is slow, but next week we're in the WORLD!!!! Yay! Not that I'm forgetting about "being good" for a week but it'll be a LOT more fun!

Have a good week everyone!

10-13-2004, 09:47 AM
Ok, today I was 153, that's 4/10 for the challenge, and three pounds away from my next clippie...need to stay focused now...:sunny:

10-13-2004, 02:40 PM
I'm down another 1.5 pounds this week, making my total so far for the challenge 7/15.

10-13-2004, 09:54 PM

Hi Challengers! :wave2:

I thought I'd post an update today, as I'll be in WDW this coming Monday and won't be able to check in.

I've lost another 1.5 pounds this week, for a total of 13/15 for The Challenge! :)

Keep up the great work everybody, and have a wonderful weekend! :sunny:

10-14-2004, 03:06 PM
I'm finally checking back in. After surviving my first Disney trip, I weighed this morning and realized I have lost 2 more lbs. so that's 3 lbs. in all. WHEW! :Pinkbounc I don't know how I did it. So I am trying WW again this week, and I plan to start walking my butt off again starting tonight in the park!

10-14-2004, 03:32 PM
Sethsmama...glad to see you back Jill! You know I need all of the support that I can get!:sunny: Maybe you can help get me motivated and walking with you!:cool1:

luvmydogs...you are well on your way!! Have a great time at the World! :earsboy:

crzy4dals...keep up that positive attitude! :teeth: That new clippie is right around the corner!! ::yes::

KJo719...you're halfway there! Keep up the great work! :flower1:

AuroraluvsPhillip...you CAN stay focused! You wouldn't be here, if you weren't! :cheer2: Your new clippie is within reach!

DVCTiff...Have fun in the World next week! You can be good AND enjoy yourself, just think of all of that exercise you'll be getting! :cool1:

LIFERBABE...glad to see you back on track! 7 of 25 is a great accomplishment! :hyper:

Tera...another one halfway to their Gobble Up Success goal! Onward and downward! :Pinkbounc

KimRaye...I'm sure hoping your week gets better! :wave:

10-14-2004, 03:33 PM
SethsMama...by the way, I just noticed your new tag. You know that you can go in December with us... :teeth:

10-14-2004, 07:01 PM

10-15-2004, 03:19 PM
yasuern...Way to go!! ::yes::

Today is my first whole day back on WW, and it's going well!! I'm having to eat more food than I planned, just to eat my points for the day! Let's hope I can keep it up!! :D

10-15-2004, 05:22 PM
up one this week:rolleyes:

10-16-2004, 08:56 AM
I'm down 5 :bounce: :Pinkbounc :bounce:

Seems all the walking at The World paid off.

10-16-2004, 08:59 AM
checking in late again

down another 2 pounds

weighing in at 165.5

only .5 to go for goal :bounce: :bounce:

Then it will be maintaining it......
getting close to that 25 lb clippie too.


10-18-2004, 12:35 PM
I'm down 3.8 pounds this week. Total for this challenge is 15.4/25.

I'm so happy. :)

We actually went to visit some lighthouses this weekend (my son LOVES lighthouses), and I coulcn't believe when I actually climbed to the top of the Barnegat Lighthouse (217 steps, thank-you-very-much!). The boys went up in the other two, but I was happy with climbing that one (didn't want the paramedics to have to come out for me!) :)

10-18-2004, 03:51 PM
:cool1: Down 1.5 which puts me at 4/15! Yippee!!!! :cool1:

10-18-2004, 07:23 PM
Congratulations to everyone! I guess it's time for me to check in.

I lost a measly 1/2 pound, then I stayed the same for quite a while! Then - I gained 2 pounds! I didn't want my measly 1/2 pound taken away, so I didn't post! Well, I weighed myself and the two pounds are gone!


Hope everyone is having a great day!

10-18-2004, 11:00 PM
LOL Ann!! You SHOULD be proud!! 1/2 lb is better than nothing!!! ::yes::

Well, I was waiting to see if a Week 6 thread got started, but so far it hasn't, so I shall post here.

:o I gained a pound this past week. :( I guess it could've been worse, given the circumstances, and it is the ONLY time since January that I've ever gained, so it's not sooo bad. So, I'm back down to 65 lbs lost, 7.5 for this Challenge. Really, that's not bad. :D I've been back OP since Sunday (the day after the funeral), and I plan on getting back to exercising tomorrow, I've missed that a LOT! ::yes::

Onward and Downward fellow WISHers!!


10-19-2004, 09:23 AM
Hi all! I've posted a new check in thread for week 6! Mondays are always SOOO busy for me, and we have a new computer system (at work ;) ), so I wasn't able to post the thread yesterday! Sorry!! ::yes::

I have carried forward your losses, from what you've posted here, but still feel free to post on the other thread too! :teeth:
