  • Losing or maintaining weight: Lose
  • Fitness/exercise goal: Continue DDPY at least 4x's a week 

Checking in!

Weighed in this morning at 176.2, so down 1.4 from challenge starting weight.
I actually exceeded my goal of DDPY last week and worked out 5 days in a row :) This week I will a bit short and only get 3x's. I ended up getting a terrible chest cold and took off Monday & Tuesday. Will get back on the wagon and workout this evening after work.

Going to my parents house for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I'm excited to visit and spend time with family, but I always seem to do poorly tracking my intake and portions when I am there (holidays or not)...so I'm going to try to practice more self control and be more diligent in journaling my intake.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday. I did poorly on the day of our flight, but have tried to stick to my plan the last three days. Today is Thanksgiving.. and I am going to try to stick to plan, but may allow myself a bite of one or two things. Luckily we’re doing a small Thanksgiving dinner here, so there’s not a ton of temptation.

Fun fact? I don’t really like roasted turkey. It’s usually dry and flavorless in my opinion. Going to try and overcome this, as it’s my best Protein option today.

1) challenge starting weight: 197

2) current weight lost: 53

3) losing or maintaining: losing

4) fitness goal: to work out at least three times a week

5) post challenge weight loss: unknown

6) check in: I was actually looking for something that was going to focus on the holidays, so this is perfect! I’m hitting the gym hard with my trainer and it feels great! Although I notice I seem to be grazing a bit more than usual, nothing unhealthy so I can help but wonder if the increase in activity means my body wants a few more grams of Protein. Hmmm :) good luck with this first week everyone!
Weekly check in #1
1) 194
2) 3 lbs since Friday! Total 56 down
3) I’m a loser baby!
4) already worked out three times with my trainer ... woop
5) 3 lbs so far
6) doing great and feeling no stress about the holiday! Spending it with close supportive family and sticking to mainly Protein and veggies. Probably a bite or two of a roll and pie filling, but I’m fine with that as I’m creating a lifestyle not a ‘diet’ .
Happy thanksgiving to you all!

Check in? Weight lost: none. Hello my friend the stall! Also- my routine is junked up so I haven’t been weighing myself regularly.

Exercise? Does trudging through airports, malls, and walking through my alma mater (On, on U of K!) count?

Hi all! I know this is technically week 1 check in but I'm figuring it's never too late to join and be held accountable.

Challenge Starting weight: 211.6 (my weight on the 16th)

Current weight lost: 207.2

Losing or maintaining weight: losing

Fitness/exercise goal: 5 days/week of turning fitbit green: 13,975 steps, 7 floors, 60 active minutes, 5 miles, and 2,687 calories

Total weight loss at the end of challenge: (Post January 1st 2019) ???????

Check in: I am having a hard time with my intake. I am pretty much following a 16:8 IF. Not really by choice, but more because I work 12 hour shifts, then sleep, then have to go back. And because I have a physical job, I can only sit and eat on my lunch. Which does help keep me from drinking 30 min before and after eating. I am still having a hard time with certain temps. food and liquid has to either be hot or cold, warm or room temp causes nausea. At least I'm hitting my liquid & Protein goals and finally broke through my "stall"

Week 1 check in:

Down 2 lbs! It's not much, but this is amazing to me as I've always pigged out Thanksgiving (and the days after...). I did much better than I thought I would and I wasn't really craving the carb heavy foods...

Survived Thanksgiving. I had a two pound gain that I am working back down. I have moved furniture, decorated the house for christmas and painted a guest room. I'm driving my husband crazy. This week I back to my normal gym routine.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
