Hi guys! I got a little off track this week. I worked the election yesterday and knew I wasn't going to eat well, so I think I just lost focus over the weekend. I even skipped tracking on Fri & Sat! I just went back and tracked as well as I could remember for Fri, Sat & Tues and I'm 21 points in the hole. Whoops! I'll knock a few of those off with activity and I'll try to stay within my weeklies the next two days. I might be OK for Friday, but if I'm not I'll go to the meeting and skip the weigh in.

Hello everyone. Sorry I haven't checked in lately. I ran my third 5K on Oct 27th with a time of 34 mins again. I'm happy with that. I'm now in size 10 clothes and wow it feels so good because I when I started I was wearing size 16W!

I did go to weigh in last night and I'm down to 45.2 lbs total weight lost. My goal is to lose another 15-17 lbs. I now worry about the holidays that are coming. I was so hoping to lose 50 lbs by the end of the year. Our next WDW trip will be Feb 4th....we have a count down going now!

Hope everyone has a great week and don't give up!

-Stephanie

It is reachable! We can do this!

My pleasure! I am glad to help any way I can! I have Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a vacation coming, but I am definitely going to try. I have never tried to lose weight during the holidays. It was always "I'll start in January!"

I am miraculously down .2 this morning at my official weigh in. I couldn't be more thrilled! After 4 days in Orlando, including eating my way twice around F&W and a multi course meal at Jiko, I was expecting a gain, so any loss is thrilling!

If it happens in the future, I, personally, would really look back in your tracker to the *two* weeks before the unhappy weigh in. For me, I find that it's about a week and a half to show results on the scale; one week doesn't do much. That's why sometime people will eat the earth and still lose...they need to be careful for the *next* week so they don't see a gain the following week. Or people will do really good, like you did, one week, but see a gain that COULD have been caused by the previous week.

Working out many times a day can cause extra water to be retained, as the muscles heal themselves. It's part of the muscle repair process, to pull water in. And for some bizarre reason, sometimes when some of us don't fuel ourselves properly for working out, we can stall out or even gain. I know that I started to lose *better* when I started to eat my Activity Points (carefully calculated with my heart rate monitor, using 80 calories burned per AP). I need the extra fuel, and I also need to drink scads of water on days that I work out. That way I keep the water retention away.


that's just my unsolicited advice based on my own particular experiences. Take it or leave it, it's OK, but I wanted to put it out there.
Thank you for your response.... we shall see how week two goes.... I know this is a marathon and not a sprint.... I am hoping to find the combination that works for my journey and DO SO appreciate you sharing your thoughts....

How many 5Ks have you run now? You are really doing great. I am just now reaching size 16 -- in some clothes. Others are still size 20, but I am happy when I am able to put on something with a size 16 tag in it.

This was my third one. I just started running in January and I'm 48 years old! I'm a late bloomer. Just think you're down 4 sizes...don't that feel great?

Fantastic! Congrats on your Oct 5k! I have been thinking of starting running......how did you get started? Any pointers you can share?

WI this am and down 1.6!! So excited! Actually had two people look at me and say "you've lost weight". Felt really good to know others are seeing my loss.

I had a sort-of compliment yesterday. Someone said that I'm beginning to look like my mother. Umm, she is 82, in poor health and barely weighs 100 pounds (so I'm about double her weight). I would never tell her this, but she just looks old and worn out. Shoot, she'll tell you she's old and worn out. So, I'm not sure I want to be told I'm beginning to look like my mother.

Maybe you are looking like a younger version of your mother? Regardless, you are doing a great job!

As soon as I join WW in March '11 I started walking but I was 202 lbs and I couldn't walk for 20 mins. I just keep going every other day. Then by Jan '12 I wanted to do more so I would walk and then run for 30 sec. and then 1 min and I just keep bulding up to 15 mins.

I now walk 3 mins (3.8 speed) run 15 mins (5.1 speed) walk 4 mins (3.8) run 15 mins (3.8) walk 3 mins (3.8) run 3 mins (5.2) then walk 1 min (3.6) and the walk 1 min (3.4). That's my route now for a total of 45 mins 3-4 a week.

I had no training I just worked at my own speed and if my body told me to slow down I did. Just don't over do it.

Hi hi everyone! I started WW back in April and I've lost 20 pounds so far!
I have a lot of emotional eating and more-so around certain times of the month. I haven't exercised since I started, but I bought zumba for my xbox so I'll be starting that soon. I feel better about my appearance and I want to use my new zumba game to become more active, not simply to lose weight.
