Default Update/ May 8 2012/ 26.8 lbs in 12 weeks

Just weighed in today and I'm down to 236.4...which is roughly 26.8 lbs down since Feb 13, 2012. That's 12 weeks and 26.8 lbs! I'm hoping to be down in the 220s by the end of May and then 210-215 by June (mini-goal). I try to set higher goals for myself so that when I meet or exceed them, I get happy instead of frustrated! I hope everyone else is having good luck too! Guess I'll check back next week once I've weighed in again.

Starting weight- Feb 13, 2012 263
Current weight- May 8, 2012 236
Mini-goal- July 12, 2012 215
Mini-goal- Dec 20, 2010 160

After struggling with my weight for the past 3 years, I finally reached my max weight of 262 lbs on Feb 13, 2012. I knew that I had to do something so I started following fitday again and this time, I stuck with it. I calculated everything I ate- and planned ahead. The first week I stuck to my Curves workout 3x a week (30 min a piece), I took the stairs at work instead of the elevator and I got up from my desk every hour to walk around the office. At the end of the first week I lost 5.2 lbs. Then the second week I was down another 2.6 and then another 2 and this last week I was down another 3. I'm now at 249 lbs. I know a lot of people that have tried dieting and exercising and still haven't lost any weight so I'm hoping that my story will affect them and help them reach their goals! One of my daily routines is this:

Breakfast- Special K Chocolate protein shake
morning snack- 1 cup Cateloupe and 1 laughing cow swiss cream cheese wedge
Lunch- A variety of Lean cuisine or healthy choice lunches (I love the artisan cheese pizza from Lean cuisine or the meatloaf, potatoes and corn from healthy choice)
afternoon snack- 12 almonds or 1 tbsp of natural jiffy peanut butter on a plain rice cake
Dinner- A mix-up between about 10 meals
Dessert- Skinny cow ice cream sandwhich or smart ones sunday

Dinners =
1. grilled or baked chicken breast, boneless and skinless with 2 tbsp Hunts original BBq sauce baked in, green beans, corn on the cob
2. 93% lean ground beef rolled into meatballs (I have 3), baked potatoe with non-fat chedder cheese, 1 tbsp sour cream, 1 tsp real low-sodium bacon bits, grilled aspargus
3. Chicken breast cut into halves, dipped in milk/egg and then dipped into 1/4 cup light and fluffy pancake mix and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (homemade chicken strips) and then bake, sweet potatoe fries, and broccali

Those are just a few that I have eaten but I usually stick to the same foods and just mix and match them.

If I have school that night (full time student and work full time) I swing by Panera bread for 1/2 Chicken ceaser sandwhich on 3 cheese and 1/2 greek salad with balsamic vingerette. Or I grab a grilled chicken salad from McD or a 1 grilled chicken breast, green beans and baked beans from KCF. Or lunch/dinner after Curves I'll grab a Subway 6 inch on 9-grain honey wheat, Subway melt with veggies and a parfait.

My daily calories on fitday are anywhere from 1300-1650 and my balance graph is usually between 45-60% carbs, 20-35% fat, 20-35% protein.


I usually only workout those 3 nights at Curves but on the nights that I don't work out, I take my dogs for a walk around the block and try to go an extra block each time. I have a back injury so I can only do so much.

I have lost at least 2 lbs a week (healthy weight loss) and have found new things that I love to eat!!! So far, I'm down 13 lbs and hoping that this week I'll have another 3 gone. My short term goal is to be down to 215 by the time I go home to SC in July and then my long term goal is to be down to 160 by December.

These choices are easy to make, and you can stick with them. Good luck!

Really Nice job!! You mention that you have a back injury. I had a bulging disc and I found stretching really helped. It helped so much that eventually the disc slipped back into place. I don't know if it will work for you, but in any case it will make you feel better. Focus on balancing out your muscles. If one side seems to be your tighter side-- try to stretch that more. The goal is to even things out (this may be pulling your spine). Good Luck!!

Wow! that was so amazing. People like you should be the inspiration of each and everyone here. Honestly, to maintain a diet is very hard might as well to discipline yourself to avoid this and that. You've been dieting for quite some time now and yet you are still driven. God bless you!
