11th-Nov-2006 09:34 pm - 10 pounds...
Well, I'm more than 10 pounds down from my last set of pictures, so I'm going to humiliate myself again. I personally can't see a difference, but it has to be there somewhere!

This is me, today: 172.5 pounds (in my beloved Paige Jeans!).

25th-Oct-2006 12:43 pm - AT LAST!!!!!
I hopped on the scales today:


It feels like such a milestone :D I don't know why, but it is such a nice chunky number...and feels so much closer to goal than the high end of the 170s. Right now, I am wearing the smallest thing that I still have in my closet (an 11/12 skirt from the Limited that I bought 5 years ago). I tried on clothes at the mall on Saturday and managed to squeeze into some 10s (they were still really snug though). I haven't been in 10's since High School!

Anyhow, I'm not going to party yet. I still have 30 pounds to go, but the scale is finally moving again. Hooray!

177 today.
The weightloss has slowed to a CRAWL. It's very frustrating.
My current goal is 164.
If I can lose 13 more pounds, I will be "normal" weight for the first time in my entire adult life.

I'm at 178...I /think/- the scale keeps waffling between 178 and 181. I feel like I've been on the cusp of the 170's forever. I know that the main culprit is the fact that I fell off the wagon while I was in Scotland, but this is SO frustrating! The longer my plateau holds, the more I feel like letting go!

I really, REALLY wanted to be in the 170's for Scotland. By cheating a smidge, I made it- but the scale has barely budged since!

My exercise has ramped up in intensity, but lessened in length. It is getting dark too early for me to stay out for an hour anymore. I've started actually RUNNING (okay, 12 minute miles are more like a fast walk :$ but still!) for 30 mins, instead of walking for an hour, and my carb intake is up. I think I'm going to play with going "low carb" this week to see if that helps. Something HAS to give!

I'm PMS this week. Maybe that's part of it? I can never decide if my weight is more or less pre-period. It seems to waffle. Oh, well. I wish I would JUST LOSE WEIGHT ALREADY! :P

I have 6 weeks until New York. That makes my goal of being 164 by then very tough unless a miracle occurs :(

Current weight: 196.5 lbs

Um... I'm NOT even going to go back and see what I weighed last time I checked in here. I know it was less, and it will be depressing. I need to get going on this again. I don't care so much how I look, but I need to be healthy and keep this body lasting as long as possible.

I went walking this morning, which is a big improvement since I haven't exercised in forever. I liked it. I'm going to try to do it every morning.

Minus 1 more pound. I'm at 181. I'm reasonably pleased. I had hoped to break the 170's for my trip, but that's still possible. I'm due to have my period in 6 days, so it might be water retention to an extend. A loss is a loss in any event....If I can only maintain next week in Scotland *wibble*!
4th-Sep-2006 11:44 am - Exercise!
I jogged today. And yeah, it was only for three blocks or so, but I jogged. Go me! I was walking along and was like 'hmm, it's nice, let's see how far I can jog' and I could have gone longer but I'm a wuss.

Of course, the 50 miles at the end of the month is still going to kill me but alas. That's what Advil is for, right?
4th-Sep-2006 11:20 am - UPDATE
Ooooooh, the secret is to weigh myself on Monday instead of Tuesday (only allows self to weigh once per week). 182.0

*bounces* 179 for Scotland is still doable.
3rd-Sep-2006 11:22 am - Blee
Half a pound a week is NOT FAIR. I have been an absolute angel :( I've never gone over 1300 calories and I upped the intensity of my workout. I'm now running 15 mins and walking 45 mins four times a week, PLUS doing strength training three times :( What am I doing wrong?!?!?

The only thing that I can think of is that 1) I am not drinking my water like I should and 2) I am not counting the sodium in all the diet soda that I drink...maybe I'm retaining a lot of water?

In any event: Blee.

Scotland goal slips well and truly beyond reach :(

Faith - Hey There
1. My Starting Weight from way-back when: 208.8

2. Current weight: Sun Sep 3rd - 201.5

3. Total Lost or Gained:
Since last time:
The total period: -6.5

4. Details:
I was terrible about exercise so that is all the diet. Hooray South Beach.

5. Evaluate Your Personal Progress and determine course of action for next week, examine failure or successes honestly.
I only walked once and I did cheat and have a Starbucks Grande Mocha Latte...that was a BAD idea. I felt horrid all day...next time, I get skim milk, no whip (which is my usual) and the no-sugar Vanilla or Hazelnut syrup. The sugar headache was not something I want to repeat.

6. Set Goal For Next Week:
Stick to South Beach.
Try to get my fat butt off the couch/computer chair.

Random Commentary:
I am shocked and amazed that this whole detoxing from sugar and carbs and the insulin rollercoaster they cause thing is really working. I am so darned happy!! Of course, the cynical side of would like to see that weight loss slow...the faster you take it of, the easier it is for it to come back. Be gone 4.5 lbs...be gone I say!!
