4/5/2017           302.6         46.5
4/20/2017   299.8     46

Well, things slowed down for a bit as I was getting prepped for surgery, but a week after and I'm back on the diet plan mostly. Still eating 20% over maintenance calories, but weight is coming off. Healing is hard work I suppose. I should be able to do cardio again in a week, then back to the weights in another 4 weeks. Here's to 225 bodyweight and a 500 pound squat.

5/1 : 295. 20 pounds to go until first re-eval point.

nice work brute.

I've been in maintain mode the last month more or less.  but

i think i've learned how to maintain.  i can add back in cheese and sugary snacks and extra cheat days as long as a majority of the time i stick to the diet i do great.  Maintaining around 195 i eat probably 14-16 of 21 meals on the diet or skip bfast.  and the others i go pretty far off the deep end with pizza and chips and cheese etc.

now to get to 185 and try the same system and see what happens.

I've been MIA for a while and this weekend consisted of way too much whiskey and junk food at a comic con so I've fallen behind.

This morning's weigh in has me at 150.1 lbs, so down 6.8 lbs for the year but about 3 lbs higher than my lowest so far.

Onwards! 148.6 lbs this morning.  Looking to drop a few more lbs before my trip to Vegas next Thursday. I lost my Fitbit though so I'm losing motivation to get my steps in (which is super lame, I know...)

Weigh-in time

January 3  -- 287 lbs
January 6  -- 284 lbs
January 16 -- 283 lbs

So, down four pounds so far (1.4%).

February 3 -- 281 lbs

Yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday, so there was a lot of snacking and beer. I think I'll delay this week's weigh-in to Thursday or Friday. :)

I plateaued at 280 for a few weeks, then finally broke through by taking a page out of b42's book -- lots of veggies and protein, a little bit of fruit, no grains or dairy. Down to 270 as of yesterday, for a total loss of 5.9%. Shooting for 260 a month from now when bike racing season starts, 240 by the end of summer.

269 (6.2% down) as of this morning, after a week of travel (and thus, bad eating and too much booze). 260 by next Wednesday might be a stretch, but we'll see.

I know it is almost half way through the year but I want to join.  I had a physical yesterday and was shocked by the number on the scale.  About 4 years ago I lost around 30 lbs and felt great.  We decided to have a kid and I let pregnancy be a complete excuse to totally ruin all my good eating habits.  Those bad eating habits weren't too bad until I mostly stopped nursing the mini-me and in 2 years I have gained probably 40lbs, which puts me at my heaviest non-pregnant weight ever and not too far from my heaviest pregnant weight.  Most of that weight gain has been in the last year.

Today (so far) I got up early to do some body weight exercises, dug out my old calorie (and nutrient) counting app, took a walk during lunch, increased my water intake and got my tea with OUT sugar.  Dinner will be black bean, corn and avocado burritos.  I am focusing on cutting (and tracking) calories and cutting sugar, these 2 items had the biggest impact last time.  I am not sure if I will lose 10% as we are also hoping to get pregnant with #2 this year but I don't want to fall into such bad eating habits this time.

May 2012: 188  Pants size 18
May 2013: 155  Pants size 10
May 2014: 215 <---few days before baby born
May 2015: 160 ish  Pants size 12
May 2016: 170 ish  Pants size 12

Starting weight for this challenge ... drum roll please ...
5/1 Weight: 205 Pants size: 16 (probably should go up to 18 but I hate shopping)

Edited to add: To reach a healthy BMI I should be under 140, I have not been 140 in 20 years.  It is my ultimate goal but not my 2017 goal.

It sounds like you've reached the right mindset, which is the most important thing! It will build on itself as you see results from your better habits. Just wanted to stop in and wish you the best in your journey:)

So I did ok despite my long weekend with the SO in a restaurant town.  This number is a floor I've bounced off of two or three times in the past 15 years.  I don't think I've been below it since university.

I am in...  Currently I am around 210...  I tend to hit a plateau around 200, 195, and 190...  I do not recall the last time I was 185.
One good thing is when I tend to hit a plateau I stay there...  don't go up or down...  So my goal will be 185lb (11.9%)

Today I weighed in at 182.2lbs which is a 13% loss from my starting weight of 210lbs!  So I met my goal, now I just have to maintain or lose some more until the end of 2017.  Lol

i'm at 191.4 as of today.  going out of town this weekend so cant use my scale to determine if i made it under 190 on saturday AM.  Hoping i can make it under 190 tomorrow just to see those numbers.  fun to see round numbers plus 189 would be 10%.  Goal is to get to 185 and maintain between there and 190 thru out the year.  unless i re evaluate and want to cut some more fat.  Maybe to get a six pack by july we'll see. either way i'm the lowest i've been since 2 years ago.  down 1 pound in a month and a half of maintaining mainly.

Had a rough weekend, diet wise. Thought I had done enough hiking (over 10 miles) to counter it, but no. Saw my highest weight in a month at 176.6. But been back on track the past few days (down to 174.4 last night), and will continue to maintain! :-)
OK w/ me, these kinds of weekends happen, and I will take them in stride.

Weighed in this morning after being away last weekend and was down 0.3 - I am okay with this, as the weekend away included three pretty indulgent meals; I didn't let this derail me as it often can. I stayed ON TRACK and TRACKING before the weekend and following. Last night people were meeting at a restaurant for dinner/drinks and I didn't want to spend the money or the calories, so I packed dinner and ate at my desk before leaving work (quite a day - also ate breakfast and lunch at my desk! In fairness, I always eat breakfast and lunch at my desk... much to the wonder of my fast-food addicted coworkers). I ordered myself a big bottle of Pellegrino with limes, felt satisfied about my zero-calorie "treat," (okay, I spent $8 on water, but a good compromise) and still took part in the social event. When I am motivated like this, nothing can stop me.

Today's weight = 153.3 for a total of 4.7 down in four weeks. I am already able to wear a couple of pairs of pants (that I've been avoiding for the past several months) more comfortably; they're not quite fitting perfectly yet, but it's great to feel results! I will keep attending my weekly WW meetings and getting the free motivation and accountability (lifetime member and adjusted my goal weight up [still within their range] so I could attend for free) until I'm back in my ACTUAL desired range of 143 - 147. I'm even going to start biking to the meeting to make it a mustachian triple whammy: exercise, free transportation AND the free meeting:)

May 4 - 147.6.  Same weight for several days in a row.  Very happy with this after some upticks.
  I've also (finally!) lost a solid inch off my waist. That's harder than losing overall weight for me.

Keep on keeping on!


Last couple of weeks I seemed to be stuck around 150 and I was prepared to be philosophical about that.  As long as I'm eating healthily and am physically active, maybe that's my sustainable weight.

And then yesterday and the day before I was 147.8!  Today (April 30) I've ticked back up to 148.6 but still.  Feeling very encouraged that my plan of healthy, delicious meals, careful snacking, and vigorous walking hasn't yet hit bottom.  I've been aiming for 145 and that might be the bottom but we'll see. 

I'm losing .5lb or less per week so as not to shock my mental or physical systems and set up resistance.

Happy spring vibes to everyone on this thread!



My Friday pre-weekend self-motivation post:

March 24 - 149.4 

Jan 21 - 155.5
Jan 28 - 154.5
Feb 12 - 153
Feb 19 - 151.6
Feb 26 - 151.4
March 5- 152.8
March 12 - 152.2
March 19 - 150.4
March 26 - 149.0??


March 26 - 150.4

I'll be travelling till just before Easter.  Activity level will be high but meals will be irregular and no access to scales.  This will be a good test of my ability to at least maintain 150 during non-routine times.

April 14 - 150.4!   After 2+ weeks of planes, trains, hotels, and restaurants, I'm pleased with that.  Now to buckle back down.

April 16 - 149.8. Goal for the week is to stay solidly in the 140's.

April 30 - 148.6

I'm in.  I'm at about 150 and want to get to 130.

I'm down to 138.  That's an 8% loss.

Pretty sure I haven't weighed <140 pounds for a few years.  Very happy about this.  :)

01-May: 168.5
07-May: 165

Ten pounds down, in 8 weeks. It's only 5.7%, but 10 pound is still a nice round number, and greater than half way to completion. I can see differences in my body composition. It's a good feeling.

I'm moving my official weigh-in to Sunday morning, instead of Monday. Easier on the pride, since Sunday is my cheat day. Monday's weight is usually falsely inflated. Though, does anyone else using intermittent fasting find the urge to have a cheat day diminishes?

51 pounds down since getting back from christmas break. And to think, if I'd quit drinking and stuck with the plan from the start, I'l probably be down another 15 pounds, but it was more fun this way. I've written so many diet and training programs that worked well for people, but it's been a long time since I've been willing to follow my own plans. Turns out it works well for me too!

I'm in!  I started a month ago on my post-baby body.   I'm focusing more on getting rid of the fat and gaining muscle. 

I'm currently at 155lbs. I'm working with a personal trainer once a week focusing on my goals.  The rest of the week I do cardio/weight circuits and yoga as homework.

My biggest challenges will be adding more vegetables to my diet and limiting the sweets/wine.

I'm almost down 10%.  To be honest I didn't start trying to lose weight until February this year and the real help was doing the Whole30 diet.  I'm still living Whole30 and I'm see weight loss every week.  My current weight is 141, so 1.5 lbs to go until I hit the 10% goal!

I'm at 7.6% lost.  Considering we had an adventurous food weekend (still no sweets though) I'm happy.

I started the year at 283 lb and this morning I was at 253. That is just over 10%, but my goal is to lose 40 more pounds of useless weight this year.

05/11/17 - 253.4

Progress has stalled, but atleast I have maintained.  Work has been crazy since taking a 2 week vacation back in April, which has impacted the amount I have been working out and has started to affect my eating choices.  Need to get back on the horse.

I'm about to fly off on another multi-day work trip.  I have identified where I can pick up some healthy snacks to help me manage, and I'm setting rules around what things I will eat from the buffets.  After this there is no more travel planned until August, so that should be very helpful in my goal.  And I will hold off on using up the polenta and rice from my pantry until I've broken through this barrier.

Weighed in at 250.5 this morning bringing me up to 11%. I did this on a fancy inbody machine at a local health store. I have a whole print out to help me tailor my diet and exercise better for my needs. I'm hoping for another 50 pounds lost this year.

May 14 - 149.4.   :(   

The natural consequences of loosening up on healthy eating and consistent movement.  I had a little psychological rebellion and then indulged myself.

Strategy for this week?  Build more healthy treats into my diet to avoid the 'deprivation' excuse and self sabotage.

Will be getting my 3 month blood sugar test results on Friday.  Very interested in seeing those!


May 4 - 147.6.  Same weight for several days in a row.  Very happy with this after some upticks.
  I've also (finally!) lost a solid inch off my waist. That's harder than losing overall weight for me.

Keep on keeping on!


Last couple of weeks I seemed to be stuck around 150 and I was prepared to be philosophical about that.  As long as I'm eating healthily and am physically active, maybe that's my sustainable weight.

And then yesterday and the day before I was 147.8!  Today (April 30) I've ticked back up to 148.6 but still.  Feeling very encouraged that my plan of healthy, delicious meals, careful snacking, and vigorous walking hasn't yet hit bottom.  I've been aiming for 145 and that might be the bottom but we'll see. 

I'm losing .5lb or less per week so as not to shock my mental or physical systems and set up resistance.

Happy spring vibes to everyone on this thread!



My Friday pre-weekend self-motivation post:

March 24 - 149.4 

Jan 21 - 155.5
Jan 28 - 154.5
Feb 12 - 153
Feb 19 - 151.6
Feb 26 - 151.4
March 5- 152.8
March 12 - 152.2
March 19 - 150.4
March 26 - 149.0??


March 26 - 150.4

I'll be travelling till just before Easter.  Activity level will be high but meals will be irregular and no access to scales.  This will be a good test of my ability to at least maintain 150 during non-routine times.

April 14 - 150.4!   After 2+ weeks of planes, trains, hotels, and restaurants, I'm pleased with that.  Now to buckle back down.

April 16 - 149.8. Goal for the week is to stay solidly in the 140's.

April 30 - 148.6

07-May: 165
14-May: 165

I went down to ~163 during the week, but bounced back up on Sunday morning. Traveling this week, so my goal is to maintain, vice actually losing any more. Plus, a 10 lbs drop seems like a good time for an intentional plateau. I'm just going to eat to hunger, and fast 1 day. We'll see what happens.

Is it too late for me to join in?  After making the decision to not have any more kids (hubby is getting the snip snip soon) it's time for me to focus on getting back in shape. 

Current weight is 172.8.  Goal weight is 135. 

Has anyone been using a calorie tracker?  I've been using Lose It! the past week and a half, and it has me on track to get to my goal weight by Feb 2018.  We will see if that actually happens or not, but extra accountability is always a good thing!

Count me in.  I'm at my heaviest weight yet.  Started about six weeks ago at 180 . . goal is 145.  My problem is I eat well . . .dont' eat a lot . . . exercise regularly . .  but yet can't seem to drop pounds to save my life.  I have given up any sort of soda (use to drink a lot of Coke Zero) and most processed foods . . . . I don't overeat . . and yet the scale barely budges.  I swear, my body just went on strike when I turned 40!  I'm only 5' 3" so this extra weight really shows!!

3/15 - 181 (size 12)
5/19 - 174 (size 10's are getting more comfortable)

I've been MIA for a while and this weekend consisted of way too much whiskey and junk food at a comic con so I've fallen behind.

This morning's weigh in has me at 150.1 lbs, so down 6.8 lbs for the year but about 3 lbs higher than my lowest so far.

Onwards! 148.6 lbs this morning.  Looking to drop a few more lbs before my trip to Vegas next Thursday. I lost my Fitbit though so I'm losing motivation to get my steps in (which is super lame, I know...)

149.9 this morning after a four day bender in Vegas where I did nothing but eat, drink, gamble and go to a Britney Spears Concert (super anti-mustachian but so worth it).  I was at 151 when I left for Vegas I feel okayish about this.

Jumped back on the wagon yesterday with good food choices for both lunch and dinner, planning to keep it up, already meal planned a 4HB week for next week.

Ive been secretly following along but since I started right after thanksgiving 2016, it felt like cheating a little to have a month head start.  I do want to celebrate getting 10% weight loss as of today, though!  This is how it went:

11/28: 165.8
12/1:   161.4
12/8:   157.8
12/15: 156.7
Christmas/New Years!
1/10: 158.7
1/18: 156.6
1/25: 156.2
2/4:   153.7
2/10: 153.0
2/16: 152.0
2/22: 150.9
3/2: 150.2
3/7: 149.0

I'm 5'7", 33 yo and my initial goal is to be 145 lbs by my daughter's birthday mid April.  I'm well on my way to meeting that goal (yay!). My second goal is 140 lbs and then I will reassess how I feel.  I've mostly just been tracking my eating in my fitness pal with a goal of 1200 calories per day.  I've pretty much got a pattern of eating established that makes me satisfied and keeps the weight coming off.  As far as exercise goes, I play indoor soccer once a week and downhill or XC ski once a week.    I'm a SAHM so I'm pretty busy on my feet most days.  I generally get at least 9k steps on my Fitbit but don't put much effort into it.  I expect that to increase once the weather improves as we walk bike to the park a lot.  I generally  eat more liberally on ski days as I know lots of calories are being burned but I'm good at not going totally crazy.  I don't keep track in MFP those days. 

Great job everyone!  Can't wait to update further and try that black bean chip recipe!

Congratulations!  We are on the same path, 145 by mid April.  I'm also 5'7".  151.2 today so your post is motivating.  Been awhile since I've seen 149.

Thanks! Stick with it if you hit a plateau.  I feel like I hovered just above 150 for 2-3 weeks then I bust through down to 149 suddenly. 

Today's weigh in:
3/15: 148.4

Ever so closer.  I have about 4 weeks to lose 3.4 lbs so I'm really trying to buckle down.  We are going to the great wolf lodge for my daughter's birthday and my "reward" for reaching 145 is a new bathing suit since the one I have now is too big! (That's a new one!). I started looking last week when I got below 150 but no luck so far.  Bathing suit shopping sure does keep the motivation up though!

5/19: 143.9 lb (22 lbs down and over 13% down) 

I went and bought size 8 pants/shorts a couple months ago and now I've had to go out and get size 6 as the 8's are too big and the 6's are getting loose now...  I'm pretty much not actively trying to lose weight since I've hit my 145 lb goal but it's slowly been coming off still due to just ingrained eating habits and regular exercise we naturally are doing now that the weather is nice (biking daughter to and from school ~10 hilly miles per day, hikes, mountain bike rides, etc).   



Woo hoo!

I'm in.  I'm at about 150 and want to get to 130.

I'm down to 138.  That's an 8% loss.

Pretty sure I haven't weighed <140 pounds for a few years.  Very happy about this.  :)

Backpacked last week for 4 days and actually put on a few pounds!  Grrr...  I guess I changed some fat to muscle?

Then I fasted this week from about 9am Monday to 2pm Friday--my longest fast yet.  Could have easily extended it, but circumstances...

Will fast again next week...

Weighed 138.5 Friday morning.

Happy to report another 0.4 lbs down, for a total of 5.8. Sitting at 152, and so excited to see the other side of 150 coming; it's been a while! My jeans are much more comfortable and I've got my eye on the smaller jeans that haven't been out of the closet for far too long!
