Losing Weight in Between 5% Challenges

Friday, May 10, 2013

The Spring 5% Challenge starts tomorrow and I am ready! I weighed this morning and am down another pound, 211.4. Wow I could get to 199 in the next 8 weeks!!! I got a one month YMCA membership here in Las Vegas which can be used at any of the 4 Y's.

I am moving more during the day, eating off smaller plates and highly motivated! Last night I was very tired so I could not go to the YMCA, but I did push myself to walk. I set the bar low, just do a 10 minute walk, which turned into 24 minutes! That the great thing about walking outdoors, you cannot just stop and jump off, you still have to get yourself back home.

Hubby will be back here in a few weeks. I have to keep Kali in shape till then, so I am supplementing her walks with treadmill time. She usually does 32 minutes, but was distracted and only did 9 minutes.

Feb 23 224.1 start of Winter Challenge
Apr 20 215.9 end of Winter Challenge
May 10 211.4 start of Spring Challenge

I hope you have great weather this weekend and can get outside and have fun!

That idea of doing something for a short time (10-15 minutes) helps me a lot. Sometimes I really work just the amount of time I have set in my head, but often by the time I get to the 10 minutes I feel good enough to keep going. It seems to be the getting started that I struggle with the most.

    Congratulations on continuing your weight loss while you are away from home.

I did a little checking and you CAN retrieve weigh-in data back more than a year. When you go to the page that shows the graph of your weight over time, on the right, next to the starting and ending dates listed, are little buttons that let you change your starting and ending dates. You just need to keep paging back on the little calendars until you get to the dates you want. I just went back to my start and had it show all my weigh-ins and I can see all the valleys and mountains of my journey.

If you hold your cursor over a point, it will give you the date and weight you entered on that date.

You should be able to match that info with the starting and ending dates of your 5% challenges.

Have fun with this.

Enjoy Vegas, and I hope your daughter will soon be as good as new.

    congrats on your loss! I need to remember that walking can do wonders. I often think of exercise as things that make me sweat (running, eliptical, etc) but forget that walking is good for the body, mind and soul! Ready to start this challenge!
