Re: Summer weightloss challenge! Closed to new contestants but open support for all!

to 95 degree heat and my body's desire to retain water due to the heat.

That's all I've got.

Re: Summer weightloss challenge! Closed to new contestants but open support for all!

I think it's important to remember that slow and steady is the healthiest way to permanently lose weight and keep it off. Its a life style change. 1-2 lbs a week is great work at least that's what I have to keep telling myself.

I lost another pound this week, so I am happy. I actually had a couple of really bad days where I couldn't seem to fill up. It was driving me crazy that I was constantly hungry.

I went to the store and bought new weights so I am working out with 2lb weights now instead of 1 lb and I can feel it more.

Although the best news is that I am in size 14! I fit into my 14s today! I'm excited.

Oh and for any of you that may have been craving chocolate I found these Mousse Temptation Jello Cups that are 60 calories each... they are perfect!

Re: Summer weightloss challenge! Closed to new contestants but open support for all!

I just wanted to say I am so glad to have you ladies on here to motivate me, I need all I can get. My DH is super excited about my weight loss so far, he hasn't been able to keep his hand off me! I also wanted to add that I love vitamin water, it has been a staple in my weightloss success.

I am doing better! We are all finally over our colds (so now since this competition started we've had a week of stomach flu and a week of colds.. lovely!) and I've de-lazied my eating. I'm still training for a 10k in 3 months, I hope to be able to jog the whole thing! Thanks to weather/kids/sickness/lack of sleep I'm really only getting in 2ish days a week out running, which isn't so good, but I am cross-training indoors on the other days when I get a chance. I need to de-lazy and work on that.

Weight is not going terribly well, I'm roughly the same weight and I can tell I've lost muscle, which means... fat. Bleck. I can see it, too. But I'm hoping to be able to recommit now.
