20 week Challenge - Week 10 Progress

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Well me and my husband started out with some personal goals in mind for the 20 weeks between the middle of summer and Halloween. So far I have been doing really well, even though the numbers might not reflect that... the reason the numbers don't is because I started using my weight watchers scale weight which is off by about 10 lbs from my scale at home... so in the middle it looked like I had a huge gain but the truth is I my actual weight was a bit higher than what was stated originally.

Hubby started off good but the scale seemed to tip up and down between the same 5 pounds. He has been losing the last two weeks but is the same weight he was 5 weeks ago because of a few gains. He has made a few non scale victories though, including fitting into a smaller pants size, which he is really happy about. I am proud of him... most would have given up after such poor results on the scale.

My week 10 weigh in is not until Saturday so I dont know exactly how much I weigh right now... I will post my week 1 and 10 weight on Saturday. I desided to take pictures today and no matter what the numbers say you can not deny the huge differences in my body shape. I am very very happy.

I recently went shopping and discovered that I can now shop in the juniors section... thats really weird lol, considering I could not do that when I was that age... most of the stuff over there I did not really like but the fact I could was a sweet victory. I ended up buying a new hoodie, some new shirts and some size 7 Panties.... I started out at size 12!!! There was a dress I really liked but I dident want to spend the money on it.... It looked really good on me though.

For a recap of my 20 week challenge here were the goals I wanted to reach by Halloween of this year.

My Goals

Lose at least 1.5 pounds a week
Lose a total of 30 pounds
Go from 180lbs 150lbs
Go from a loose size 16 Jeans to a comfortable size 12
Get into a routine of waking up early and going to bed early
Drink more water
Incorporate more activity into my day to day life and still get my regular workout in as well


My Reward

Trip to Carowinds (local theme park) : Saturday October 30th 2010
New Outfits for both of us

Im doing well with my goals so far. I do well on my exercise one week and the slack the next so I geuss that is so-so. As of last week I weigh 173 lbs so if I manage to lose another 2 lbs this week I will be down 10 lbs.... its more like 20 though if you factor in me using a different scale. My scale at home and the weight watchers scale is off by about 7-10 lbs. Im pleased with the way the scale is moving though. I am already able to button and zip a size 12 so I know that I will be in a size 12 or maybe smaller by halloween... very happy about that. I never thought I would be any smaller than a 14 at my goal weight. 14 looked so small to me when I was 300 pounds and even then I thought I would never reach a size 14. Now that I am almost smaller than a 14 it blows my mind... I feel like I am in a dream sometimes. I know it sounds silly to feel so happy about a pants size but I never thought I would ever reach a healthy weight. It really is a dream come true.

I dont know if I will reach 150 by the end of october but thats ok.... I will be happy if I manage to lose another 10 lbs. and Im sure I will still look really good.

    Great job to you AND hubby!! I still think it sooo awesome that you were able to get him to join in on all the incredible stuff you've been doing!

I like the goals you set - you sure make losing 1.5/wk doable! Wish I could get there with ya...in the meantime just as you say - those inches lost are JUST as satisfying (if not more). Don't worry about having a super active week, then slacking a bit the next. I've been going through something very similar. I'll be super energetic one day and do boo-koo excercise, only to be lethargic and sleepy the next...what gives? lol

Overall, those pics don't lie girl! You are the incredible Shrinking Jess, for sure my love!!!

Keep on rockin! You guys will be at that theme park in no time!

Weekend

Monday, August 02, 2010

MY WEEKEND

well the weekend has ended and I don't think I did bad but I might have done bad as far as simply filling goes. With the weight watchers simply filling plan you get to eat as much filling food as you want to make you full but only get to eat other non-filling foods within your 35 weekly points budget and you don't have to track anything other than the 35 points of non filling food.

I ended up going to golden corral last night and eating alot of non filling foods... If I had of stuck with simply filling then I would hardly have any weekly points left. Fortunately I have tracked everything I have eaten since my week began on saturday so I am just going to track my points this week instead of trying to do the simply filling plan again this week.

I went to my parents house yesterday. I had not visited in a long long time, almost a year! Which is bad because my parents only live about an hour away from me. I'm a bad daughter. I just hate going over to there house because they smoke and I don't like that the smell sticks to my clothes and hair and my kids are breathing that crap in. My parents don't seem to understand that you still breath it in even if they are not smoking during our visit and they don't smell the smell either because they are use to it.

Anyway, it was a nice visit and nice to see my parents. They have seen me in the last year several times. I saw my mom about two weeks ago and my dad a month before but my 19 year old brother had not seen me since last summer when my sister graduated from college. He really freaked out when he saw me and the only thing he could talk about while I was there was how skinny I was now. He has never seen me any thinner than 230 pounds so I guess it was really surprising to see how small I had gotten. It felt really good that he reacted that way.... no one else has really reacted like that before, they have said stuff but never were really shocked at the weight loss. He also told me he was really proud of me and that really meant alot... alot more than I thought it would coming from my little brother.
My grandmother also said something that was pretty meaningful... she said that she didn't think I would gain the weight back... That was amazing to me. You see my grandmother is generally a very negative person. She is the type that calls you fat and then bakes you cookies and makes you feel bad if you don't eat any... and then when you do she tells you, if you eat to many your gonna get fatter... also if you lose a few pounds she says your just gonna gain it all back... or looks at you and says "whered you lose it, between your ears" ... That's a favorite for her lol.
Anyway for her to say something so positive as that she though I would not gain it back is really amazing and nice. It also meant alot.

I'm glad I went to visit even though I smelled really bad afterwards. :-(

..........
WORKOUTS

In other news I have decided I really need to bump up my workouts again this week. For the last few weeks I have been slacking off by either skipping my workouts all together or doing things that are waaaay to easy for my fitness level. I'm talking, walking in place in front of the TV easy... which is fine for extra activity but I need to have a real, sweat my butt off workout at least 5 days a week.

This morning I really wanted to go back to sleep! Its odd because no matter how early I go to sleep, I still do not want to get out of bed before 8am. I went to bed at 9:30pm last night and still found myself wanting to crawl back into bed at 5:30 this morning. WTH!
I did not go back to sleep though I stayed up and I was determined to get a good workout in. So I just tried to think about it as little as possible and just make my body walk to the dvd player and put in my biggest loser workout video. This is one I know will challenge me and because of that Its hard to pop it in. I can just feel my brain saying "NOOOO NOT THAT ONE!!!" .... my hand wants to reach for walk away the pounds or something but I got it in and pushed play and then pushed myself as hard as I could.

Getting through the squats and lunges are reeeealy hard to do, I tend to want to stop half way through and wait until it switches to the next exercise. But I kept through the burning and shaking legs and kept telling myself "I am strong" ... It really is effective to do this as lame as it sounds. I got through each segment and felt like I was gonna fall over in a heap when the video was over... so mission accomplished.

I want to keep this up and really start toning up my body. I'm small enough now to where it will make a real visible difference ... I just need to stick with it this time instead of getting a week through working out and then stopping for a few weeks. I think I may get some new videos too... the ones I have are a little stale.
.............

PLANNING

well I think I have decided on a 5k that I am going to do. I was reading about a 5k here in the city I live in that takes place on November 20th (my B-Day). Its called the Santa shuffle or something like that. I thought it was really cool because it happens during the Christmas parade! You start out at the beginning of the parade procession and then run a 3.1 mile loop to the finish line. It sounded pretty awesome and Its also neat because it falls on my birthday. I'm trying to talk my sisters into doing it with me. My one sister is already running several days a week... because of me I might add. LOL... she ran with me twice when I was training for my first 5k and then afterwards kept going. She can now run for more than 30 minutes straight. That's alot better than I can do now. she is in much better shape body wise though.... this would be her first 5k, which would be awesome to be a part of with her... I hope she agrees to do it with me.
I have not run any since I did my last 5k at the beginning of June. I figure I will prob have to start at the beginning of the C25K program again but if I start at the beginning of September then I should have plenty of time to complete it and then hopefully beat the time I set at the 5k in June. :-)

I'm really excited about it though... I'm really hoping the weather gets a little better soon so I can start training. I'm talking 100* days or at least a heat index of more than 100... and a million % humidity. Not good running weather.

    You just keep up the good work, Jess. I think you're doing great. And I know that not going to see your folks sounds kinda bad to some, but you have your reasons and it's not up to anyone else to judge whether they are good enough reasons or not. And, it's good you're aware of how your g-ma operates. Helps prevent you from falling into the traps she seems to set.

    I feel your pain at not wanting to visit your parents due to cigarette smoke. That was me for years. I'd still go every other week, but I would have to shower when I got home. Now my mom doesn't smoke inside due to my dad not being able to stand the smell of it. It makes visiting much more pleasant.

I'm glad you had a nice visit and got lots of compliments, even from your grandma!

You may have had a whole different demeaner about you when you visited and thus created your own positive vibes. Congratulations on shocking your family. tee hee. Also way to go girl on your exercise. As for the filling foods, if counting points is better for you then go for it. Not everyone does well on the ff alternative. Make sure to track so you don't go over your points.

Food Blog - Thursday - 6th Day of simply filling

Friday, July 30, 2010

well yesterday was day 6 of simply filling. I like it alot. I did not take pictures of my food today but tomorow I will post what I ate. By the end of today I will have eaten all of my weekly points and maybe a few activity points... which is ok... there is nothing saying you need to eat only filling foods.. You would get bored fast doing that. I tried to just keep the non-filling foods around 5 points or less per day and that seemed to work out pretty good.

I feel smaller! I really feel like I have dropped fat this week. I dont know for sure yet though because I dont weigh in till tomorow morning... but Im thinking its going to be good. We will see.

Im planning on giving simply filling another week though, even though I dont know if I have dropped weight doing it. Its not hard to follow and all I did to make my menu this week is take the one from last week and make a few changes here and there. Instead of doing mostly chicken like I did this week Im going to do mostly ground beef.... I do that because meat is pretty expensive and I get a big pack at sams club that is like 6 pounds or so.... I cant afford to by more than one type so each week I settle on steak, chicken, or ground beef.... then I throw in a couple vegetarian meals or fish... or if I have some meat left over in the freezer I will throw in a few meals using what I have on hand. It works out.

........................

Thursday

Breakfast 1 - cream of wheat and blueberries


Breakfast 2 - shredded wheat and blueberries


Lunch - flatout wrap (not ff)... tuna burger w/ avocado, lettuce, carrot & light ginger dressing (2 Points)


Snack - (It was my sisters birthday the day before and she always gets a pepperidge farm coconut layer cake for her birthday because she loves them.... OH MY GOD.... she goes in the freezer and pulls it out and gets a slice... I told her to keep it away from me because I would rip it out of her hand and eat the entire thing and then eat the cardboard tray it comes on too. lol.... then a little while later my other sister comes in ... they both live with me.... and gets a slice. It was killing me. So a little while later it was just calling my name... "Jessica, Eat me... Eat meee!" . So I went in the freezer looked at the calories and fat.... 240 calories and 10g fat for 1/8 of a cake. Thats 5 points. So I go and pull the cake out and look at the cake, determine how big an 8th of a cake is and then determine a 5th of that... and thats what I cut off.... a nice 1 point peice of awesomely bad cake..... I put it in a bowl and sat down and ate it slowly... took me like 6 bites. I dident eat any more and I was good. Im proud of myself for that)
(not a ff - 1 POINT)


Snack - peppers, carrots and hummus
(1 POINT)


Dinner - 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pasta, 2 tbls pesto, 1/8 cup fat free cheddar, 13 shrimp cooked in a nonstick pan w/ cooking spray.... 1 cup broccoli

The simply filling technique takes a little bit to get the hang of, but looks like you did great. Keep up the good work and you'll be a goal be you know it. emoticon

    I have been measuring even though with simply filling you are not required, I have also been paying attention to my hunger as well, and usually I am just to the point of satisfied when I finish my meal.. there have been a few meals where I left a bit of food on my plate because I got full before my plate was empty.

I have also been using the food tracker on weight watchers to keep track of my food. I have been eating a little more doing simply filling then I did counting points but I ate alot before too. Looking at my tracker though, I have been eating less points than I was before... I usually end up a few points under my daily target doing simply filling.. Im taking it because filling foods are usually less in points.

I dont know if I have lost any weight doing simply filling yet.. Im hoping to lose at least a pound or two this week. I dont weigh in until saturday morning when I go to my meeting. I will let you know how it goes.

Im considering doing simply filling again next week as well. I like it, Im not hungry at all and have been able to put together meals without using too many weekly points.

I wouldn't make you do that, though. It'd cost lots in postage I bet to send it all the way to California. You have so much great advice. I know I can do this...I think I want to buy a bike so I can even further shake up my routine and keep my body guessing so I start losing pounds not just inches again.

You're a great friend, Jess!!! How lucky am I to have met you here...

    The egg plant was just diced and roasted in the oven on a cookie sheet for about 20 minutes with some pesto brushed over it... I did add some kidney beans to it as well (forgot to mention) and then melted 2 really thinly sliced peices of reduced fat swiss on top.

For the tortilla-less fajitas I just took chicken and sauteed it in a non stick pan with some cooking spray... set that to the side.... then sauteed peppers and onions together in a nonstick pan with cooking spray.... then I mix the chicken and veggies together, add maybe a 1/4 pack of taco seasoning and a tbls water... cook over medium heat for about a minute just to combine flavors and then place over shredded lettuce. top with salsa and fat free plain yogurt or sour cream.. (the yogurt was all I had.. it was ok)

    GOALIE44 - your actually allowed 2 tsp olive oil or other healthy oil per day with the simply filling plan and you are not required to track it. There is a list of condiments as well that you can have free, even though they are not filling foods. The list of foods you can eat is in the week 6 book, if you have it.

    when you join weight watchers you get this slide rule thingy for your food points and activity points... the food slider takes the fat, fiber and calories to determine food points values. Then you have a daily points allowance so every time you eat a food of a certain amount you take it away from your daily value.

..... the activity points slider takes the intensity of your activity and the number of minutes doing it and comes up with an activity points value.

You can use activity points for food during the week.... So if you earn 10 activity points in exercise you can eat 10 more points of food during the week.

I usually never use mine though
