Weekly check-in

Jan 1: 154.2 lbs
Jan 4: 150.2 lbs (lost that water weight!)
Jan 11: 149.8 lbs
Jan 18: 147.4 lbs
Jan 25: 147.8 lbs
Feb 2: 146.8 lbs
Feb 8: 144.6 lbs

Feb 23: 144 lbs
March 1: 140.8 lbs
March 9: 138.8 lbs
March 22: 144 lbs
March 29: 142.2 lbs

Stats: Female 39, 5ft
Total weight lost: 12 lbs
Goal weight: 129 lbs
*Have to reach goal weight by July 7 2019 to get $1080 in prize money from HealthyWager OR I lose $600*
Currently 48% towards my goal with 45.3% time elapsed

Well, as I anticipated, the cruise set me back quite a bit. I have lost 2 lbs in the past week since I returned and looks like I will have to work hard to shed the remaining 3 lbs to get me back to where I was 3 weeks ago. So I probably lost about a month of progress (since I went on a 2 week vacation and it is taking about 2 weeks to shed the vacation weight)

My vacation was worth it though :) And I had anticipated this when I signed up for HealthyWager and made sure that I had enough time to meet my goals even with the effects of the cruise.

I haven't yet gotten back into logging post-vacation and that is likely what is currently slowing down my progress. Have a big family meal tomorrow and then back to my normal food for the next week.

On the good side, I ate a ton during my two week vacation, but was able to stick to my goal of 2+ hours of physical activity nearly every day. On the cruise I went for two to four 30 min dance classes each day. Plus hitting the ship's clubs at night. And on our two beach days, I swam for 2-3 hrs straight. Post cruise I biked a lot nearly every day.

I have to join today... had my yearly physical and the doctor says I gained 9lbs since last year :(.  I'm 5'11 and weight 191.5 lbs, I would like to get to the 175-180 range, that would put me with a BMI below 25.  So here we go!

Mar 20: 191.5 lbs
Mar 30: 188.0

It's working!  I am actually losing weight!

3/30 203 lbs. Goal: 200 by end of June so doing well. Plan is to keep eating less but  healthier foods and exercising via cardio. Doing intermittent fasting occasionally too. Peaked at 265 lbs in May 2018. Ultimately, my goal is to be in a healthy bmi weight of 194 or less and stay there for a 6 2 man. May want to start lifting too for better body composition.

Am enjoying learning about fitness and nutrition, and especially trying new foods. Loved having hummus with celery sticks two nights ago.

Glad to see everyone else making progress and sticking with it.

Mid January: ~198
Feb 2: 195
Feb 9: 192.6
Feb 16: 190.6
Feb 23: 189.4
Mar 30: 190.6

Been a whirlwind past month with moving and haven't weighed in or been on track at all with diet. So I'm actually happy to see I'm still at 190. Back on track now for another push towards 180.

225.7 this morning, slowly dropping towards 220.

224.5 today, finally dropping somewhat predictably.

Goal weight remains 208 by May 8th

New low today and that on a Monday, amazing! :)

222.8lbs, 14.8 to go.
Hit 221.1 one day but promptly bumped back up. This morning was 222.6 so slowly but surely making progress.

I am traveling for work this week so it will be tough for me to keep it up but it can obviously be done. Running a 5k in the Florida heat on Thursday will help keep me on track.

What I'm doing to try and keep weight down in 2019:

  • Many meals throughout the day.
  • High protein meals where possible (more satiating).
  • Chewy, high-fibre food, so it takes longer to eat (more satiating).
  • Big breakfast to fill me up until lunch time (wholegrain baguette or porridge bowl).
  • Lots of coffee.
  • Zero-sugar soft drinks (Coke Zero, etc).
  • Sugar-free chewing gum.
  • Eating as slowly as possible.
  • Keeping mentally or physically occupied so I don't think about food.
  • Strength exercises to increase muscle mass. More muscles = more calories burned when at rest.
  • Get lots of sleep and do some mindfulness.
  • Use mobile calorie tracking app religiously.
  • Avoid having calorie-dense foods in the house.

My weight at the moment isn't too bad (65 kg weight, 173 cm height), but I'd prefer it to be headed down rather than up.

Over the past few years, my weight was slowly but steadily rising. In August 2018, I heard about Diet Bet and decided to give it a try. Since then, Iíve lost nearly 40 lbs. I have another 54 lbs to lose to be in a healthy BMI. Iíd love to get there in 2019, although I know that it will be a stretch for me.

Iíve lost the weight so far by doing intermittent fasting on a 16:8 schedule (itís my natural eating pattern so it works for me), tracking calories, and increasing my daily movement.

August 2018: 236.8
December 31: 198.8
January 31: 191.8 (I was hoping to be a bit further along, but my weight went up and plateaued for a while before I managed to drop weight this month. Then again, progress is progress and Iíll take what I can get.)
February 28th: 189.2
March 31st: 184 (Iíve now gotten solidly beyond my 50 lb goal! Very excited about that. I also learned that Iím an inch taller than I used to be so my next goal of getting down to an overweight BMI is even closer. Just 4 more lbs until Iím considered overweight!)

Goal for April: 176 (I know itís a lofty goal given my recent slow down, but I would just love to hit the 60 lb mark)

I started to try to lose weight back in November.

Started at 236.
Weight as of 3/31 - 202

My goal was/is to be 195.  And more buff.  At 195 I want to see the % body fat and if I want to go lower.  So far, doing OK, although my initial goal was to hit 195 by 4/1.  Oh well.  I think I can do it by 5/1.

My goal for the end of the year is somewhere between maintaining my weight and losing 20-25(ish) lbs.  Google tells me the top end of a healthy weight for my height is 140 lbs, even when I was in the best shape of my life (played very competitive soccer and volleyball in high school, with weight lifting) I was pretty steadily in the 145 range.

Historical weights
7/2017: 200 lbs (6 weeks pregnant)
03/23/18: 215 lbs (40 weeks pregnant)
04/03/18: 192.8 lbs

I had to go out of town for work all of last week.  I checked my weight before I left and was really excited to see that I had finally jumped under the 157 mark.  This morning I am back at 157, I feel like I am never going to get to and stay under 157.  Considering where I was at a year ago (and for many years before that) I am really happy with that weight but I was/am also really looking forward to the day that when some random medical professional decides to calculate my BMI and I fall in the "healthy" range.

Hopping back in this thread for a bit. I was down to 179.0 and bopped up to 181.8 after being out of town for work last week.

180ish is a pretty comfortable maintenance weight for me. I look fantastic a pound or two lower (can easily tell the difference in the mirror) however itís just way harder to maintain any less than 180 as I stil around 7%-8% BF around there. Also, Iím fine to have a mild cheat meal on the weekend, a bowl of lower calorie ice cream at some point during the week, and maybe a few extra snacks here and there. I lift weights heavy twice a week and run about 20 miles a week, so that helps keep things in check.

All that being said, I signed up for my first 5K in about 5 weeks, and I want to do everything possible to get my best time. Iíd REALLY like to get down to 175 lbs if possible. Iím not prepared to be entirely miserable to do it, but if I can just pick up the self control a few more notches I should be fine. My wife already prepares, measures, balances every single meal, so that part is all super easy.

@goinganon That is IMPRESSIVE! You have been making awesome progress!!

@Slow & Steady At my current weight of 141lbs, I am still in the overweight portion of the BMI chart. I would need to hit 127lbs to be a "normal weight". The lowest I have hit is 130lbs and I was definitely still pretty rounded although I felt it was a pretty acceptable weight for me.

Missed last week's update. Did great last week and then this past week was pretty flat- had friends in town over the weekend so I was a little less vigilant. This week is my first week back to work after a 6 week sabbatical... my job offers a lot of food and snacks at work so the temptation to snack all day is high. This means I have to be more disciplined compared to when I was at home, where we don't generally keep snack food on hand so any time I wanted to snack I had to go through the effort of making something.

That being said, I was working for the first half of the time I've been logging here and still dropped over 10 pounds so I think I'm good!

Was 220.9 yesterday morning but didn't have the greatest day as far as eating so will probably bump back up. Still got my eye on that 208 target.

220.0 this morning! Got 12 more lbs to lose in the next 4 weeks so I might just miss that goal. I'm really hopeful to be 215 or below though which is my lowest weight in over 10 years.

This last month has been completely hectic around my house. We bought a "new to us" car and had our third child. she was in the hospital for the first week and half so that made things even harder.

I am ready to get back up on this horse now though. time to shed off another 10 lbs or more.

Congrats on everyone's progress up to this point!

Wow, you folks are doing great!

Prepare to be underwhelmed by my performance though. I started the year at 161lbs, with a goal to lose 6 lbs. I hoped that I could lose it by reigning in my emotional eating with meditation, but then had to spend the month of March getting exhausting  medical treatments. Fatigue led to missed workouts and fast food, so instead of losing weight, I gained another 2lbs.

The good news is that I'm now feeling great, and for the last week I've been logging my food intake, and exercising rigorously (maybe a little too rigorously, judging by my quads). I'm happy to say that I'm back on track at 161.4 lbs.

I've even booked a body scan to assess my body fat levels and distribution. I hope that this will give me an idea of where I should set my goal weight, since my body composition is quite a bit different than it was in my super-athletic youth. Unfortunately there's a big health difference between 10 lbs of muscle and 10lbs of visceral fat. While it's not a thrifty choice, I'm telling myself that it's preventative healthcare and thus fairly excusable.

I am ready to get back up on this horse now though. time to shed off another 10 lbs or more.

Congrats on everyone's progress up to this point!

Congratulations on the little one! I hope sheís doing better now.

I have finally entered the Overweight BMI category!! This is the lowest Iíve been in well over a decade. At my highest, I was in the Class 3 BMI range so this is a huge accomplishment for me. I still have a long way to go, but at least Iím heading in the right direction.

9/2018 - 240
Jan 31  - 220: Finally lost the other 20 pounds I set in September.
Feb 6   - 219
Apr 18  - 198: Under my 200 goal :)

I'm in. 6' 2" Male mid 30s. I weighed around 265 lbs in April - May 2018 but then got more serious in the fall. Met my previous goal of 220 in the last couple weeks. New Goal: 200 lbs by end of June (Accomplished). Next Goal: Get into a healthy BMI weight range of 194 and under and stay there :)

I've been elliptically almost every day now for 45-60 mins and restricting calories too. 16/8 seems to be my natural eating schedule too so that helps. Overall, I feel so much better and have lots more energy. I'm afraid I may be OCDing a bit since I have been doing multiple daily weighings and have been wanting to try not eating for a day or two but stay hydrated to make the weight come off faster. Very happy to be in the "Overweight" category instead of Obese.

1/11/18 - 96kg       211.5 lbs       BMI 38.5    Class II Obesity
1/12/18 - 94kg       207 lbs
1/01/19 - 92kg       203 lbs
1/02/19 - 90.1kg    198.5 lbs
1/03/19 - 89kg       196
7/4/19  -  88.5kg    195
1/5/19 -  87kg        192 lbs         BMI 34.9     Class I Obesity  :D

I added a few extra numbers in here for this month. I'm now only Class I Obese :). I didn't log a weight last month because I was on holidays...after 2 weeks of exercise and really good diet, I lost only 0.5kg. I hope it was because I put on muscle, my clothes were looser.

So in total I've lost 9kg, with 12.5 to go to get to 74.5kg whereupon I will no longer be obese.

218.4, found another nice stride. We fly to Europe next Thursday which was my goal date for my 208lb goal. Won't make that but i might get sub 215 which makes me ecstatic.

My goal for the end of the year is somewhere between maintaining my weight and losing 20-25(ish) lbs.  Google tells me the top end of a healthy weight for my height is 140 lbs, even when I was in the best shape of my life (played very competitive soccer and volleyball in high school, with weight lifting) I was pretty steadily in the 145 range.

Historical weights
7/2017: 200 lbs (6 weeks pregnant)
03/23/18: 215 lbs (40 weeks pregnant)
04/03/18: 192.8 lbs
05/06/18: 181.2 lbs
06/14/18: 172.8 lbs
08/06/18: 168.8 lbs
09/21/18: 165.4 lbs
10/07/18: 162.2 lbs
12/07/18: 157.? lbs

01/09/19: 161.6 lbs

03/07/19: 157.3 lbs
04/01/19: 157.2 lbs
05/02/19: 157.4 lbs

I guess you could say that I a really killing it with my goal of maintaining! 

I would love to get into the 140s but it doesn't seem like that is in the cards without changing my priorities and those 10-15 lbs are definitely not on the top of my priority list right now.

My weight went a little crazy for a while. It dropped down to 176 for about a week then jumped up to 183. No clue why. Thankfully it seems to be on the downswing again.

Oooooo...this is EXCITING!!!

@happy It feels amazing to move down to the next range on the BMI charts.

A few years ago, looking at my BMI was finally what opened my eyes. I had gradually put on tiny amounts year after year and all of a sudden, I was officially OBESE.

I am only 5ft tall with small bones so it doesn't take a whole lot of pounds to fill up my frame. I have now dropped enough that I am "just" overweight. My goal is to get to 129 lbs. Which would be the lowest I have weighed in a long time.

I just did the math and I would still be "overweight".  I will have to get down to 127lbs to actually hit a " normal" weight. Yikes.

I won't blame the BMI charts though. I've been at 130 before and while it was hard enough to maintain that, I KNOW I wasn't slender at that weight. While I looked pretty good, I was definitely still well-padded so "overweight" was an apt definition. A few pounds less would have helped. 125lbs would be a nice weight for me. Not thin but only slightly padded. Given that I am turning 40, I guess I would call that a "matronly" figure haha!

9/2018  - 240
Jan 31   - 220: Finally lost the other 20 pounds I set in September.
Feb 06   - 219
Apr 18   - 198: Under my 200 goal :)
May 10  - 190: Hit two new goals: 190 and being in the Normal BMI category.

Next Goals
  • Stay in the Normal BMI range of 150 - 194 pounds.
  • Keep learning about fitness and specifically building muscle.
  • Build muscle through weight training. Despite losing 75 pounds, I think I've lost some strength and want to regain some.

Background

I'm in. 6' 2" Male mid 30s. I weighed around 265 lbs in April - May 2018 but then got more serious in the fall. Met my previous goal of 220 in the last couple weeks. New Goal: 200 lbs by end of June (Accomplished). Next Goal: Get into a healthy BMI weight range of 194 and under and stay there :)

I've been ellipticaling almost every day now for 45-60 mins and restricting calories too. 16/8 seems to be my natural eating schedule too so that helps. Overall, I feel so much better and have lots more energy. I'm afraid I may be OCDing a bit since I have been doing multiple daily weighins and have been wanting to try not eating for a day or two but stay hydrated to make the weight come off faster. Very happy to be in the "Overweight" category instead of Obese.

I'll be joining this thread sometime in the spring. I'm currently 6 months pregnant but I do plan on working out and not gaining a ton of weight. So far I'm right within range. I'm hoping after delivery I'll only have 15 or so pounds to lose.

Ok I'm ready to jump in.

May 12th - 135.6 lbs

@sixup I find the very drastic weight drops tends to be just a fleeting tease. I weigh myself daily so am used to the fluctuations and find my true weight is usually a pound or so higher than my lowest recorded weight.

@haypug16 Welcome!!! Good for you for jumping on the bandwagon so quickly!

Hey elaine, yeah it seems like the May 4 drop was an anomaly but has reverted back on track at this point.

180 was my original goal so I'm pretty happy to get there but I might need to go to 170 to be actually lean. Sitting around 13% body fat via navy method.

Thanks. Plan to stay here :) Exercising and eating better feels habitual now and not like a burden. I dare say the new lifestyle is sticking.

@sixup congrats on hitting your 180 goal weight!!

@AK that is so great! I have the daily exercise thing down pat and I enjoy it. But I am still struggling a little with the eating healthy part. I do OK at my regular daily meals (low cals and lot of veggies) but have noticed whenever I indulge, I avoid the veggies. Today I was at a party with loads of fresh veggies and delicious looking healthy food. I ended up eating some of that. Than a lot more fried chicken wings and the other higher cal foods. And about 3 more cookies than I planned along with a couple of cups of watermelon...after I was stuffed. Frustrating. Social meals are rough for me.
