I have had a slow rate of weight loss since I started almost 4yrs ago. When I burned 2500-3500 calories a week and ate approx 2000, I lost 1lb each week. Now I burn 1000 calories a week, plus walking/riding to class and eat 1200-1700, I lose 1lb... Read more
Revised goal list.
To remained focused on SLOW losses but still be motivated to continue, I have revised my goal list. I keep thinking back to last year when I was only 10lbs away from the healthy BMI number, and then my thoughts drift to where I would've been rig... Read more
Still going well..
I stepped on the scale and saw I've lost nothing in the past week. However, I am on my period at the moment and always gain whilst on it. It still upset me, though, even though I should know better. I've done well this week, with weight loss and... Read more
My 2010 weight loss rules.
1. Stop thinking about how long it's taken me to lose this weight. Yes, many people would've done it two years or more ago, but slow and steady wins the race.
2. Stop comparing weight loss to others. Yes, many lose more than my 1lb per week... Read more
The final time.
This past year has been VERY messy for me. The last time I logged in my weight here, I was 149lbs. Now I'm 160lbs. Very slowly I gained my weight back, exercising and watching calories from time to time. This time last year I fell off the wagon.... Read more
I'm ready to lose this weight for good. I've said that so many times, but it's different this time. No more dwelling on the past and what could've been. Yes, if I hadn't fallen off the wagon, I might have been only 2lbs from my goal-instead I'm ... Read more
Yay, I've earned the second silver trophy! Only 9993 points to go before I reach the gold one.
I still weight 147.4lbs today. I'm disappointed, but I'm not surprised. I've barely exercised this week, there's been no lessons, so I've hardly... Read more
Preparing for the future.
I'm over 20lbs from my first goal of 125lbs, and I might have even more to lose after that, but I'm starting to prepare for my weight loss story. The story I'll put on my main page, or in this blog in different parts. Hopefully it'll inspire oth... Read more
I've moved my final goal date back a month, and I'm trying to work off the first pound to get back down to 148lbs, and I'll get rid of the other two soon. Hopefully in three weeks I'll be back to 146lbs or at 145lbs.
I'm going to buy new ex... Read more
Holiday gain: 2lbs
Not bad. Two weeks ago the scale showed a 5lb gain, so today I expected at least 3lbs but nope! I'm back at my calorie range and weight lifted today. Hopefully I'll return to 148lbs by next Sunday.
Hope your new year's going well,
ZB... Read more
Mery Xmas & Happy New Year!
I haven't exercised in a week and I did 55mins of Tae bo today. Afterwards I felt slightly faint. I jumped in too fast too soon. I feel much better now! I haven't counted calories in a week either. The scaled jumped up 5lbs last we... Read more
I fit inside!!
The boots that my mum bought for me in 2006 fit me!!! Two years ago,I said to myself, "I'll be wearing them this winter." Loads of different things happened between then and now, but finally I'm there! I zipped them up and voila, they fit!! I wa... Read more
Not from my goal, but from the healthy range. So far my medication hasn't stopped my weight loss. On Monday I weighed in at 146.4lbs. I couldn't believe my eyes! I came on SP and saw that my healthy range for my height starts at 136lbs. I can't ... Read more
It feels strange typing that and it was even stranger seeing it on the scale. I've actually entered the 140s! Two years ago I dreamt of this moment and now it doesn't feel real. Last week I was 151.2lbs so the 3lb drop was VERY surprising. I thi... Read more
Tracking food again.
I've gone back up to 153lbs. I've fallen off the wagon and I'm getting back on. I'll start exercising this week. I'll start tracking my calorie intake on SP again. No more excuses. I'll be sticking to the 1200-1550 range and aiming to burn 1000 ... Read more
