20 week challenge up date

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Okay so I'm a day late with this but here's the update...

Nothing new really to report.. looks like I just maintained this past week..
Its been a crazy and hectic week and just getting even more so... It should slow down after Christmas. SO by this point I know I m not going to make the 50lbs.. but I am hope to make 40lbs.. I am 6lbs shy and have about two weeks to go so 3lbs a week is what I am shooting for!

Anyhow good luck to every one and I wish you all a Very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! And A Very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

*When I see something in the store I'm on the fence about it I usually leave the store or mall and if I'm really thinking about it a few days later, I will buy it.

20 week challenge week 17 results and on to week 18

Monday, December 12, 2011

okay so I m down another 2lbs!!

I m still having issues with things But I am working on them.. sodium being one of them lol

So with just a few weeks left until the first I know I have to give it my all and try an come as close to the 50lb mark as I can.. with the time left and 14lbs to go.. I m not sure its possible but I m not gonna give up. okay so after just doing the math.. unless a miracle accrues I m so not making the 50lbs.. but should hit pretty close to it... I m not thrilled with that but I m so not giving up or in to this!! Anyways

Best wishes to you all on what I hope will be a WONDERFUL, Sweaty, Weight loss week!!!!!

    I'm longing for a sweaty weight loss week emoticon

I'm sure you can lose a good portion of that 14lbs in 3 weeks, but to lose all of it you would have to eat 2350 calories less each day than your maintenance calories (or burn it through exercise) So I would say losing 6lbs would be really good going. Good luck and enjoy your sweaty weight loss week x

Help Help I have a Question lol

Friday, December 09, 2011

Okay my friends I have a question.. so tell me what you think!

There is the top that just seems to haunt me. And I keep going back and looking at it. And as of right now its on clearance.. and they no longer have the teal or purple which I would have preferred But they have black and I like it too! Also I wanted to buy it in a smaller size just to have something to look and motivate me even more!! Anyways the only one left is a Black size 14/16 and that is a good bit smaller than the 3x's I m in now used to be 4x and soon it will be 2x's because the 3's are kinda swallowing me right now lol Anyways what do you guys think???? Should I order it and have something to help keep me motivated or no?

    If you love it that much do it. I have done this many times! You have to find what motivates you and run with it. : )

    Thank you for your reply... so far I have not ordered anything.. I really like that top but it being so much smaller I didn't order it... Still looking for something alittle closer to my size... THANKS again to you all for replying!!!!!

    If it will help motivate you then, sure. If looking at it will haunt you and set up a negative feedback, then it isn't really worth cluttering your house with. Besides, how do you know that in the meantime there won't be a better shirt that you will fit immediately, without playing mind games with yourself?

    I'm rather conservative so I vote no. It will not fit you in the near future, it is not the color you really liked, so all it's got going for it is that it is on clearance. You deserve better than that. Find something a little closer to your current size, if you need the motivation. I understand that you are swimming in your current clothes. So am I. But I told my people that I did not want any clothes for Christmas because I don't intend to be in my current size next Christmas. My daughter told me I look like I am a little kid wearing my parents clothes. LOL
Good luck on your decision. After all only you can decide what is right for you. emoticonYay!!!!

    I would buy it, but it's a long way to go yet so I think you should find something closer to your current size that you can work on getting into first. It would be a nice reward to have two or three things to work your way through as you lose weight. We'll have to see pics of you wearing the top when you get there too :-)
Enjoy your weekend emoticon

    That is a large difference in sizes. And you will be waiting to get into it.
Can you find a top that give you gratification sooner??? I feel the longer you have to wait for your top the easier it is to make excuses.
Just my opinion! ;-)

20 week challenge week 16 results on to week 17

Monday, December 05, 2011

Okay so I weighted in this morning and it didn't show a gain Thank goodness but it didn't show a lost either.. wonder if it could have anything to do with the 17 almost 18 8oz glasses of water I consumed yesterday lol normally I do about 10 to 12 but last night I did 24 miles on my stationary bike and was dieing of thirst... yes you heard me right 24 miles.. That's a new record for me lol I have been trying to work out more because I know I m not eating the best.. I keep throwing myself off.. I was doing good for awhile there with the balance of working out and eating then when I lost alittle it recommended I drop my calories down and so I did and it threw me off.. now I have to try and get it balanced back out...

Anyways that's where I am at right now.. I am NOT giving up I know there's only 4 weeks left and I still need to lose 16lbs and okay so I might not make the full 50lbs in 20 weeks but its not going to be from giving up!! Its going to be hard but there still is a chance.

So Best Wishes to you all this week!!!!

    24 miles is excellent! You put my 3 miles to shame. Lol. I'll get there eventually. Not gaining is a success in my book! : )

Keep up the hard work!!!

ZENNITH 12/6/2011 9:41AM

    Wow, 24 miles! That's a full marathon!

I think you've done great with the weight loss so far, I wouldn't worry about not hitting the 50lbs as long as it's going in the right direction. Maybe your weight loss has slowed because you dropped your calories, you could try going back up to what is was for a week to see if it helps, or eat to top end of your range everyday?
