Weight loss goal for June 23-30.
Again, aiming for the 230s.

MsWoods 06-24-2013 07:58 AM

I hate days like the last couple days where you just gain a ton of water weight. I'm down a few oz of water from yesterday but I'm still up too much for my liking. I swear I'm not going to go off plan for as long as I did. I can't do this to myself again. Getting back on track and losing weight seems harder this time.

LaynethePirate 06-24-2013 08:36 AM

I want to lose 5 lbs this week... I find the more water I drink, the more tends to get flushed out. :)

MsWoods 06-24-2013 08:52 AM

Also, my non scale goals this week are:

No food after 7pm. Coffee, water, diet soda, and maybe some hwc will be allowed.

Take as many body combat classes as possible.

LaynethePirate 06-24-2013 09:01 AM

I'm Layne btw, and brand new to this forum. Just feeling like I could use some more support to hit my goals.

I need to get myself back the gym. I'm in a wedding at the end of September, and I'd like to have to have my bridesmaid dress (tight right now) taken in! I have 14 weeks, and I think focusing one week at a time is great. So, I'll set a goal to get to the gym at least twice this week (I didn't make it at all last week!)

I'm gonna try to keep my carbs lower too, I tend to splurge too much on fried chicken and such...the breading and whatnot catches up with me.

MsWoods 06-24-2013 09:05 AM

Welcome Layne. Great to have you here. There are usually more people in this thread but we've recently had to move what section of the forums it's in and not a lot of people just browse this section. I'm sure some more people will stumble in.

I post these every week, but it's also good to find a support group that has just one main thread that keeps going.

Good morning ladies! Welcome Layne!
I'm going for 3 pounds this week. That should take me to 156.9 or less. Have a great week!

Yvonnem2000 06-24-2013 03:09 PM

Hi, Layne, Vicki and Michelle!

Goal for this week: 151. Currently 152.6.

Eating goal: limit to 3 oz protein food per meal. Too much protein doesn't work for me. And no cheese! I keep saying that, and I keep eating it anyway. I honestly had no idea I was this addicted to cheese!

LaynethePirate 06-25-2013 11:11 AM

I made it to the gym once already! So, I'm half way to that goal. Also, my scale was down exactly a pound this morning....come on off you other 4....

Yvonnem2000 06-25-2013 12:33 PM

Goal 151.0

I felt like whatever I did yesterday really clicked. I hope I can keep it going.


MsWoods 06-25-2013 02:54 PM

Me too finally. Down to 241 even this morning. Body combat done this morning.

Hello, I'm Natasha and I am new to low carb friends. I saw this group and thought I would introduce myself �� I am a student and I am going to nursing school, I am a military spouse and have 6 children. Wishing everyone good luck with their weight loss goals!

Nbateman06 06-27-2013 04:10 AM

I guess I should have put that I am hoping to lose 3 pounds this week LOL

LaynethePirate 06-27-2013 04:50 AM

Hello Natasha! Welcome!

I'm down 2.4 lbs so far this week, putting me at 202.6....I can nearly taste the 100 somethings.

MsWoods 06-27-2013 07:45 AM

Saw 238.4 yesterday!

Had a horrible day and didn't get my water or much coffee in so I'm retaining up to 240.8, but that's ok! I'm sucking down water and coffee right now.

Oh and added joy, my fridge went out last night so I lost a lot of food. Idk when I'll be able to get a new one so I don't know what we are going to do.

LaynethePirate 06-27-2013 08:02 AM

Yikes! That really sucks about your fridge! I hope you can find a new one soon!

tttmom 06-27-2013 08:26 AM

Welcome Natasha!
Great job Layne and Michelle! Sorry about your fridge, been there, feel your pain. Hopefully you can get one soon.

At 158.4, so I might make it to weekly goal by Mon. We'll see :) Have a great day everyone!

Manny 06-27-2013 08:29 AM

Goal is to drop 8lbs,im on day 4 and already down 5.

Just always keep reminding yourself.

If nothing changes nothing changes.

Yvonnem2000 06-27-2013 08:45 AM

Michelle, what mixed emotions! Congrats on the 230's, and so sorry about your fridge!

152.4. Goal 151.

I've started tracking and measuring my food. I really thought with low-carb I wouldn't have to do that. I've tried everything to get away from it - eliminating dairy, nuts, sweeteners; intermittent fasting; JUDDD. But I'm up about 10 lb in a year, so clearly none of that has worked for me. Hopefully tracking and keeping my protein and carbs down will work like it did last summer.

Welcome, Natasha! Great job Layne, Manny, Vicki! You're giving me hope.

tttmom 06-28-2013 11:26 AM

Back up to 159.3 this morning. TOM too...ugh. Just gotta keep trying :)

Yvonnem2000 06-29-2013 08:53 AM

Goal 151.
Current 150.2!
I made it! Now the trick is to not overeat and gain today. I'm definitely feeling the urge.

Vicki, sorry to hear about your gain! At least you know what's causing it and that it's temporary. Don't let it derail you. What paleo/primal book do you recommend or follow?

MsWoods 06-30-2013 08:20 AM

You guys did great this week!

I saw 238.5 so I'm happy. This morning I'm sitting at 242 but that's ok. My fridge went out Thursday and I haven't been able to get a new one so I'm kind of living off salty things like pork rinds and peanuts, plus TOM is on it's way. I did finally find a fridge this morning so hopefully this will be a great week, minus TOM -_-.

Yvonnem2000 06-30-2013 04:56 PM

Final result: goal 151. Current 153.4.

Dang! I gave myself a half-day to eat without tracking. I didn't feel like I binged, but I knew I overate. (They feel different to me). Had no idea I was doing that level of damage! I swear the rules change after age 40. I can't get away with much anymore. Looking forward to a new week! And I'm doing well, on track today.
