hello everyone, so sorry I have not been on here in two days. I had a family emergency a state away from me and had to travel a short while then sit in a hospital for two days! Everything better now, however, even though I stayed below 1600 calories I still gained a pound this week. I am not to worried about that one pound because there is a lot that plays into that. I didn't drink enough water, only diet sodas. Also my ankles are a bit swollen from the drive and from sitting in the hospital chair two days. I didnt get much exercise in. and also some of the foods I ate were high in sodium. So I will weigh myself again in a couple days to see if that pound goes away lol.

so for my final weight as of this past Wednesday I weighed 313.88. 5 pounds less than when i started this challenge. Yay! and sorry I couldnt post this when I was supposed to.

Weighed in at 162 again today. No loss no gain. Kept to under 1600 for 5 days of the seven going over when I had high calorie bun days.

Final loss for the challenge is 9 pounds.

Now on to breaking through the162 barrier. Next goal...get into 150s.

Hello everyone. Since I joined this team I have lost 3 pounds. This is a great start for me, because I was stuck for a while and not loosing anything. I love being in this team. It's been a great motivator. :)

Doing fabulous after pushing my upper limits for three days. Weighed in a day late because I wasn't home, 162! I think that is down by at least 1.5 lbs.
It should be smooth sailing this week 2ith some good swims and bike rides scheduled.
I'm hoping by staying in this calorie renge I will continue to lose. In the past it has come to a halt probably because my exercise level is high and my body begins to think it is starving. I like this level of eating.

emoticon emoticon finally back on track for second day after having a horrible three weeks. Done good yesterday, but doing better today. I am aiming for 1600 calories today which is a LOT less than what I have been eating lol. So far its looking good, Just got dinner to go in a couple of hours and I have a healthy dinner in the slow cooker almost done. I shouldnt go over if I eat sensibly at dinner. It is good to be back! emoticon emoticon

Weighed in this morning and I have reached the goal of 5 pounds down. emoticon

I never lose that fast but the mindset is there so I'm starting on my next 5. It will be slower. My calories stayed consistently in the 1400 to 1600 range since I joined on the 4th.

Thanks for sharing on the CHEAT Karmexo! That's a good reminder to me. I've been so good i was thinking ice cream tonight. I not do that until I can confirm my loss and have a daywhen the calories will fit in.

Now get right back with it so you can fight those urges. It's tough. Get under the 1600. Eat slow, seated and enjoy every bite!

I lost Lost .5 this week, staying within my goal may need to cut a few calories here and there though to lose a little faster.

WOW!!! I decided to have a cheat meal yesterday for dinner. BAD idea!!!! my cheat meal turned into a cheat evening. Then that carried over to a cheat day today!!! I feel terrible and bloated. Lesson learned for now. Back on track in the morning! I went to store and bought stuff for some healthy meals so no excuses for me tomorrow! back to trying for the 1600 calories. emoticon emoticon

So far so good, I'm still under 1600 for about a week now. It is mostly due to eating only whsn sitting. In other words, planned. Working for me. Had a fitness evaluation at LA Fitness on Monday. It mostly was a sales pitch. I didn't learn anything so not signing up for trainers at this point.

Keep it real!

I weighed in today and lost 0.6 lb in the last week. A loss is a loss no matter how small. (Staying positive) Spark people was kind enough to say I lost 1 pound. I pushed myself to work out. 5 miles and on track with my water today. So far so good.

Great job, Karmexo! Slow and steady...and you're working towards it!

I did great on calories today and meeting several other things in my nutrition goals :)

I did not work out today. It's my rest day. I didn't sleep well at all last night, so I chose today as a rest day.

I got my water in. That's easier this time around for some reason. Well, I'm going to relax before trying to get a good night's sleep. Have a great night, everyone!

hey everyone! sounds like everyone is doing good. I am on day 8 of being back on track. I do have to admit though that most of my days my calorie range has been in the 1700's, but that is still low calorie range for what I usually eat lol. I also have to say that I am trying to get to 1600 calories a day. Today, looks like that may be a day when I do. I also had one other day where I was below the 1600 this week. I weigh in tomorrow so hopefully, it will be a good one! Hope everyone has a good day today. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Yesterday, I believe I went over my 1600 calories by less than 100....but I worked out twice yesterday too...so maybe it evened out?

Great job, Kurtzie!

Weighin : down 2 lbs from the beginning of the month. Yeah! take it. I'm following day by day with Dr Becks book. I'm hoping it Will ingrain proper habits. So far I'm tackling eating sitting down only and eating much slower and mindfully, Perhaps I will drop 5. this month,

Is it too late to join? If not, I would love to! emoticon

I just completed my first week, and I lost 8 pounds. Mind you, I upped my water intake drastically, and most of my weight loss was probably water weight, but I want to join so I keep accountable, if it's not too late.

**Repost** Reminder for Team A Goals!

This forum is for everyone who is either beginning or having a really hard time staying focus with this weight loss battle! What I recommend for this team is during the first week to keep a daily journal and write down everything you eat and to stay within a 1600 calorie range. Many of us have to first cut back on what we're eating before simply jumping into working out for the body simply feels to lethargic. I have two sisters who have dieted this way. They had to get off the sugars, and carbs first before they started a exercise program, also they did not have a cheat meal "basically surpassing your calorie goal" until the beginning of their 3rd week. They explain to me that if they have a cheat day to early they would start craving all the old foods and fall of the diet. They had to establish order and discipline first. ***These are just a couple of tips that can get you started!**

Some of my recommendations for this forum is:

#1 Post what you had to eat for the day! Did you stay within your calorie range? If not IT'S OKAY but you must emoticon and dust yourself off!
#2 Post how many cups of water you had today?
#3 List something positive you did for yourself today in the hopes of reaching your five pounds weight loss goal!!

Remember this is your forum, be free to share as you please!!

***Also exercise must be incorporated upon starting week 2***

@NEHAL14DUBEY We're rooting for you! You Got This!!

@1234MOM You are doing wonderful! If we go over our calorie range it's okay. I try not to condemn myself; however I try not to exceed 100 - 150 of what I have set for myself!

Good day yesterday not great as I was 25 calories over 1600 according to the tracker.

Today it will be good eating a hearty breakfast and lunch and then a protein smoothie after a club bike ride of about 22 miles.

I am distracting myself from eating today through making plans for my new kitchen and bath. Longterm project.

Good Morning Team A!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Wishing everyone a great day for those starting today! Remember write down everything you eat! I'm doing the same as well. I try and make a mental note, which doesnt work for i'll get confused and end up going over my calorie limit. Remember also the hidden calories in sodas and juices! We can easily waist 300 to 400 calories a day easily on fluids alone and it's so not worth it!

Hey Karmexo!

It's what you feel comfortable with. What I take into consideration is once exercise is incorporated we will drop below our calorie range regardless. For example, if you go to the gym and burn 200 calories in one hour you will hit a total of 1570 calories for that day which is still below what was recommended initially. Honestly in my opinion I would recommend 1600; I've yet to see anyone suffer or experience problems while doing the 1600 calorie a day diet. Now if the 1770 is working for you, there is no need to change it! : ) Oh and of course you can still join the challenge!! emoticon This is just my recommendation but I encourage everyone to find a limit that's good for them! I've just seen this work for myself and other people! emoticon

Hi, I would like to join the challenge, only one problem though, spark people recommend for my weight the least amount of calories I should eat is 1770. Can I still join challenge? When I eat less than 1770, my nutrition report says I went under my limit and it could slow down my weight loss. I guess the reason why is because of my weight is higher than most peoples lol.
