My pretty vague goals:

1. At least one work out while away (W&Th), W-only walked, Th-Swam 30 mins PASS
2. Weekly deficit over 3000 PASS
3. Make healthy food choices while away. Not bad other than the popcorn. SO/SO
4. At least 5 bags of stuff to leave the house this week, charity, garbage, whatever. M-1, T-1, Th-1, F-0, S-1. Su-1 PASS

Walking challenge: M-2m, T-1m, W-1m. Th-1.5m, F-1.5. S-1, Su-2 Total=10m


Libby, heatwave here too! I am not going to even try to exercise although I will try to get for a swim, only because it helps. We have air conditioning on the second floor, this big old house the main floor is ok but upstairs would be unbearable.

Renewed soul, good for you for sticking to your food plan with the stress!

Mel-Mc that boomerrang pound will come off. Hard to be patient.

Libby I hear you about trying something more, I go through the same thing, read this and that. But in the end I know that those quick fixes never last in the long term so I tell myself to be patient. You lost 4 pounds in June. To me that is normal after an initial quick loss. 1 pound a week is good.

Libby [:..] 1 pound a week is good.
Robin: I got rid of some bags too! Two big bags of 'Mom' jeans and assorted clothes. I hope never to dress like that again!

& I agree - 1 pound a week is good!

calories: M -1135 T-1147 W-789 T-881 F-? S-836 S-812
water: Y, Y, Y, Y, N, Y, Y
exercise: Y, Y, Y, Y, N, Y, Y

Another week is over and I feel like I am just spinning my wheels going no where. I wish that some one could analyse what I am doing and give me some advice. I know that starving myself isn't good but I hate exercise especially in this heat. I want to hear from the people who are losing 5 pounds a week. What plan are you following? I want this weight off yesterday. Some one asked me if I was pregnant and I said no I am just fat.

Default Recap:

  • Sugar < 40g / day: 28, 32, 83, 44, 59, 42, 66: 50.5
  • Vegetables > 3 / day: 3, 4, 0, 4, 2, 5, 4: 3.1
  • Cholesterol < 200mg: 64, 155, 175, 109, 115, 275, 122: 145

Made half my goals, and did well on calories. Need more vigilance on the weekends.

I hope I do better with my goals this week. I did good with most, but I need to really focus on exercise. In addition, I have been feeling down lately because of work stress. I need to find ways to get rid of stress. I used to eat to rid of it, but now I don't know how to decrease stress. I lost 4 pounds this week and should be really happy. It's hard to feel happy when you feel so stressed out.

Dmartz: Sometimes you will lose inches in other parts of your body before the parts you are focusing on. Maybe you could do a complete body measurement to see what's occurring everywhere else? Don't worry, your waist will be losing in no time.

Week goals:

1. Try out new treadmill I borrowed from a friend every night:grrr husband still hasn't fixed it, NO still not put together ugh!
2. Log all food and drinks: Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
3. Stay under 1,200 calories a day: Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes
4. Do sit-ups everyday: No, Yes, No, No, Yes, No, No
5. Lose 2 pounds: Yes -4 pounds

Hi Libby,

You need to look at your weight loss by percentage, which might be more than you think. I have more to lose than you, so my percentage may be around the same as your weight loss. I know it can be frustrating. I got close to my goal weight 10 years ago and gave up because of slow loss, so I gained it all back plus a lot more. I refuse to do that now. Maybe if you calculate each week or month the percentage you lose instead of pounds, it will help you see that you are doing great?
