Weigh in Time Ladies

  1. Hi everyone. I think it is best to keep this on our bb. As it may get lost on the off topic bb. things fly by so fast over there
    So I had a cheat day yesterday. I am back on track again today. My cheat wasn't too serious but it still was. Sometimes it is just so hard. Anyways I have 10 pounds off so far. My goal weight is 150lbs. I try to exercise every day. I haven't done anything yet but today isn't over yet. How is everyone else doing?

    I just weighed myself, I'm at 135 lbs. I'm only 5'3" so that's a lot for me. I just want to get down to 120-125 lbs. I am not going to restrict myself to much food wise. I am going just make healthier food choses. Like trimming fat off of meats, getting low fat dairy products, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, etc. My main goal is to try to exercise 5-6 times a week. Here's my tip of the day for exercise - lift weights! It's what helped me go down 4 sizes without having to starve myself. Rhona, or anyone else, what are you trying to do to lose weight and what did you do to cheat?

    I am working with a low cal diet somewhat simial to the old weight watchers program.Its what I liked the best. I do aerobics with Richard every day. I had snacks last night after dinner..egads. I also ate a little too much pasta. I was origionally doing a high protien Atkins thing but to be honest it is so limiting and I don't love meat that much. So I am back to my low fat, some carbs way and we'll see how it goes.

    I tip the scales at 195. 6'1" tall. Goal weight of 175lbs. Of course, no one has ever accused me of being a lady.

    Scale says 168. My goal 145! I'm 5'6". I have lost 20 lbs in 2 years just watching what I eat, of course as you all can see I have not been "watching very closely" or I would have lost more
    I try to go to the gym at least 4 times a week. I'll have to see how I will be able to do that once I start school.

    I'm also trying to figure out how I will be able to go to the gym when I start school. I have classes all morning Monday to Thursday and every other Friday. Then DH has to be at work by 1 pm. By the time he gets off work the gym is closed. I may have to learn to get up at the crack of dawn.

    I've lost 9.5 lbs (Okay that extra 1/2 really counts here! :chuckle) I only have ... 30 more to go!! I'm almost 1/4 done!! Positive thinking here.

    I'll be leaving to go workout in about an hour.

    oh man, i ate so much over the weekend and drank really sweet drinks.. etc.. i know i've gained 5 lbs.. but i don't want to get on the scale.

    You should see me weigh myself .... if I don't like the weight it tells me, I jump off of it like it's a snake or something. Maybe I think the weight # doesn't really take effect if you're not on the scale long enough?

    Hello Everyone!

    I'm not really sure what I weigh...DH won't let me weigh myself till September...He actually hid the scale on me! . I must admit though, I am a real scale junkie! Anyway...I started out at 198 on my scale...I would love to be 145 but would be happy with 150-155. I've been exercizing 3x/wk on our bowflex and I'm beginning to feel better about it. I've been exercizing for about 3 weeks now...so I hope I'll see some results soon!

    this is a great idea! would you like for me to "stick" this to the top of student nursing? just let me know!

    i am currently 135 lbs & 5'6''. my goal is to be 125 by next summer. my husband & i are doing ivf, & we want to be in the best shape we can be beforehand.

    best wishes to everyone! :d

    Moni--I think it would be great if you could move this up to the top...it'll help remind us while we are stressed out about school.

    Bean76--you have a Bowflex...how do you like it...my DH convinced me to get one but it's not here yet.

    I managed to walk 3.5 miles today. The real challenge will be sticking with it when I start school on the 26th. I don't have my Weight Watchers weigh-in until Wednesday, but here's my stats...

    Happy losing,
