Well done to the losers of the challenge!

I am actually 1 lb up from my starting weight for this challenge.
However, considering that I went up a great deal from that starting point, I am actually not doing too badly right now.

I'm for another challenge - who is in with me?
Cherly expressed interest, anyone else?

A little late on my final results, but here they are:

4/7/2011 weight 365
4/23/2011 weight 356 down 9 pounds
5/16/2011 weight 346 down 19 pounds
6/4/2011 weight 341 down 24 pounds
6/30/2011 weight 337 down 28 pounds

Total to lose 30 - 28 = 2 pounds left to go!

I was so close, but I am incredibly happy with the result of this challenge! Thanks to all!

Well done, Cherly! You've done very well!
Good for you!

I have continued to gain recently, but have now stopped the gaining, and am working hard to reverse the trend again.

Happy Birthday to Sarah!

I was at 229 lbs on Saturday; too small of a change for me to believe it's really going down, but I'm hopeful that my newfound dedication to my program is helping. emoticon

I think I will consider this a success if I break 225 lbs by June 30...

Peace & Blessings!

I have done a little better not exercising so much as I was CJ. I think I have lost back to the 231 hopefully to were I was. Sinuses are driving me nuts right now.

I was disappointed this past weekend as I was really trying this past week with exercise and avoiding sweet treats.

Sorry I forgot the last weigh in CJ but will post it this week. I have been so busy these past few weeks and then this weekend is Sarah's birthday and next weekend Greg has a safety fair at work the kids and I need to attend so June is really full. This past weekend I did a rummage sale at my mother in laws to sell the kids old clothes and other odds and ends. I hope to settle back down into a routine and get some things accomplished at home this week. I will be sure and post my weight on Saturday whether its up or down.

Yes, I've read about busting plateaus... the thing is, I think my current plateau is due mostly to lack of consistency. If I follow my plan all week instead of just here and there, I think I might see more progress. So I'm going to give that a try. (So far so good, but I won't believe anything until I get below 225 lbs.) And then if I don't see much improvement by the end of the month, I'll look at changing things up, since probably my program isn't doing quite what I need.

Peace & Blessings!

I have been bouncing back and forth myself but know I will get there eventually and won't give up. I have been getting ready this week for a rummage sale at my mother in laws and cleaning out clothes and toys as well as every thing else. Good luck all and way to go for all the losers.

I seem to have hit a plateau right along with this challenge. I'm basically hovering around 230, which is where I was at the start. I'm sure I'll start losing again eventually, and I'm glad I'm not gaining back what I'd already lost, but it is really frustrating!

Peace & Blessings!

You are doing fabulously! Congratulations!

I have consistently gained almost every week during this challenge. I'm not a very good leader, except as a Don't-do-what-I-do-and-you'll-do-great-one
!

I took my measurements today, though, and I am 'competing' with my mother, who is 7 pounds ahead of me. I always loved a little friendly competition!

I did that when I first started off so I decided to change up each day what Walk work out that I do and it seemed to help. I also bought the workouts with the boosted cables and have been doing those as well so that might be what helped. Just hang in there girl and you will find the right balance to kick it in.

Hang in there and just don't give up is the main thing! Life seems so frustrating now days and as the kids get older things are trying my patience more and bothering me more. Christopher is still being a pill most days but I am making him see that this is dads and my house and I will not put up with disrespect. Mikayla is also trying to push those buttons now as well and having to reign her in as well. He is very lazy in doing chores as well so I have to have a little more patience and stick with my guns with him. That's not to say that some days I eat a little more than I should but I try to make up for it with exercise. Good luck CJ and know you will find the right balance and start losing once again. Praying for you my friend and I know God will see you through!!

5/16/2011 weight 346 down 19 pounds total

Total to lose 30 - 19 = 11 pounds left to go

Maybe I can even beat my initial goal!

We ate lunch at Mom's yesterday and ate way to much and will probably gain back all I lost this week. I did come home and get my exercise dvd done with 4 miles then did an extra 1 mile with boost cables too. Today I got 3 mile done and also the boost cable 1 mile dvd as well. Feeling better and more energy at least with all the exercising getting done.

168 lbs
7% pledge - 12 lbs

First Weigh in - 165 lbs

I have no idea how I will maintain this, though, as I have been overeating with the chocolate bunnies and eggs!

Pledge: 10% of 230 lbs = lose 23 lbs by June 30, 2011
Goal weight: 207 lbs

* 230 lbs was my average weight a few days prior to the start of the challenge, but I'll be using my actual weight on the weigh-in days. Also, when I signed up, I did my math wrong and had 217 lbs as my goal weight. I've corrected that above and on my Start page. That's affected my nutritional goal ranges and my fitness goals, as well. But that is okay - maybe I plateaued this week because I was eating more than I should have been (though it was within what my goals said I should be eating)!

April 10, 2011 - 234.5 lbs
April 23, 2011 - 231 lbs

Total loss so far: 3.5 lbs

Still to go: 19.5 lbs

I have been drinking it at room temp but just seems to be getting old here lately. I know I need it to help with feeling more energized but just so hard. Maybe as I keep on going it will get easier. I will try the lime though because I never thought of that one. I don't do lemons at all.

Slowly increase the amount to get your body used to it?

Squeeze some lime or lemon into it for a refreshing change? Have it hot instead of cold?
I find the hot water quite soothing, especially if I have a sore throat or I am singing a lot.

Really struggling with drinking the water and forcing myself to get the 8 in per day. Oh do I wish I could count my tea with artificial sweetner as my water. Any suggestions on what to do to make it better?

I have been so happy this week that so far I have done my workouts for 4 days now and keeping my calories under control as well and drinking the water and eating my veggies too. I pray I can stay consistent and keep on going. Still stressing but trying my best not to eat like I did.

Welcome, all!

I see that most of us struggle with losing, and then keeping off our weight. Fear not! That is all part of the process. It is normal. The trick is learning how to not let it get us down, and to keep going.

Is it to late to enter?
I am at 209.6 and would like to pledge 7.2% by June 30th. So that is a little over a pound a week for a total of 15 lbs. I sure hope I can do a lot better than that and this challenge will be great so that hopefully I'll stay on task and focused. Last year I did so good till about the end of April, then in the summer, fall and winter gained it all back and I don't want to do that again. Short spurts of time and staying focused will be good for me. Thanks for putting this challenge together.

If God brings you to it, He can bring you through it!

This sounds like a great challenge and I'm in! Although I haven't been losing but putting on over the past year. Hopefully, coming back from vacation where I did no workouts, though I did get exercise with the granddaughters on the beach, will get the losing going again now that I am working out again. I am going to go for 5%, no sense setting myself up for failure by trying for more. That would be 9.75 pounds, so rounding up to 10 pounds by June 30th. That's my birthday and would be a fabulous gift to myself.

Glsd to have you aboard - Janna and DBALZER!

Cherly - sorry to hear that the diabetes is rearing its ugly head again.
Stress eating? I wonder what would help with that.

There's some good articles here on sparks about emotional eating. I wonder if they would be useful to you.

CJ, I have had such a hard time staying focused on things for me. I have to lose the weight because my diabetes is coming back into play again and I can't let that happen. I hope the warmer weather will really help jumpstart me and finally get into losing. Stress eating is my biggest problem so I have to get that under control. I hope with the dog I can keep on walking with her and that will at least keep me going.

That sounds like good exercise, Cherly, being walked by the dog!

Current weight - about 168 lbs

Pledge - 7% (about 12 lbs)

So my goal is to lose just over a pound a week for 11 weeks by 30 June 2011.
By the end of June, I will be just into the normal BMI for my height at 146 lbs!

My goal is to lose at least 10% of 245 so that would be 25 pounds for me by June 30. I hope by June 18th which is Sarah's 2nd Birthday. I got a 2 mile walk tape done today and also went for a walk with my dog who was spayed yesterday to give her a little exercise to help her feel better. She is a setter and lab mix that was dropped on us and the dog weighs 70 pounds so needless to say she walks me. Anyway it was good exercise for me.

Getting Ready for the Summer -
April 15, 2011 to June 30, 2011

Okay, Team, summer is just around the corner. We need to get ready for it!
We are having a weight loss percentage challenge.

Please pledge your weight goal percentage (between 5% to 15% of your current weight).

Examples:
150 lbs - pledge 10% = 15 lbs to lose by June 30
150 lbs - pledge 15% = 22.5 lbs to lose by June 30

Please post your current weight and your weight loss goal/pledge percentage by April 10. The team leaders will collate and list all those that are joining. We will weigh in every 2 weeks so it will be less complicated for everybody.

Thanks and good luck to everybody!!
