Lindsey Weigh In, August 22

Previous weight: 179 (last week, no post)
Current weight: 179

Nothing lost, but I'm okay with that. I had two indulgent weekends and I'm glad they didn't show up on the scale.

I'm still aiming to exercise 4 times a week; I figure if I miss it and get only 3, that's still pretty good. I'm still doing South Beach and it's getting a little annoying--hard to find mid-day meals that don't include carbs. But I find that if I keep my carb servings down to only 3 or 4 per day, it makes a pretty big difference.

I also noticed on those two weekends of eating crappy food, I really felt it. My stomach was not happy with so much sugar and fat at the same time. I hope I can remember that next time I'm tempted to indulge--unless the treat is high-quality, it's simply not worth it.

Weighed in the last few days at 175! For some reason that feels like legit weight-loss finally. It is definitely more motivating and makes me want to be even better about watching what I eat and how active I am! 12 pounds down, only ten to go to my Christmas mini-goal, which is perfect since I will also be a bridesmaid at Sarah's wedding then. Ten totally seems more and more achievable now that I've lost as much as I have. I've noticed a few of my clothes fit better, all of my jeans are too big except the size 12 pair I bought in California and my legs and face look thinner (Gary agrees!)

Holly Weigh-In: 8-12-11

This morning I weighed in at 176.6. One pound down, only 11 to go to reach my Christmas mini-goal! I've really only been taking in less calories (mostly because we are flat broke and can't buy fast food, ha!) but I've also cut way back on my soda intake so I'm hoping that really helps boost how much I start losing. Ideally I would like to be done with soda other than at social events but I usually drink water when we go out to eat anyway...

This week's goal: survive. With a teething baby, two parties to plan, school starting up and no financial aid coming in at the moment I am super stressed out and just trying to get through each day. All I want to do is eat so it's a good thing that we can't afford groceries because all I would buy is chips and soda and little debbie swiss cake rolls. Geesh.

Lindsey Weigh In, August 8

Previous weight: 182 (last Monday, even though I didn't post it)
Current weight: 180

I only exercised twice last week, and we ate like crazy women the weekend you were here, so I think 2 pounds lost is a great success!

This week: I'll exercise at least three times--I'm coming off being sick, and it's always hard for me to workout when I already feel like crap. I'll definitely stick to south beach--I'm still pretty bored with it, but I can't deny the results. I'm eating two servings of whole grain carbs and one or two servings of fruit per day, but the rest of my food is all lean meats and veggies. I honestly believe I should be eating that way in REAL LIFE as a sustainable way to eat for long-term, I just really find it difficult to maintain momentum. I like the sweets too much!

Holly Weigh-In: 8-3-11

This is going to be a quick post since Babycakes is waking up, but I weighed in at 177.7 this morning. So after the dust has settled from being sick and then eating without discretion in California I still came out ahead (the one good thing about throwing up my guts I guess?) Overall that is only 6ish pounds lost which is annoying but not surprising. I think I need to get back to logging my calories and exercising. Duh. Still...only 32 more pounds to go and only 12 to lose before Christmas (mini goal of 165 by then) which feels MUCH more achievable. Now that things have settled down here at the house and the construction is done I'm hoping it gets a little more easy to get Jillian playing on a regular basis. If nothing else, with school (maybe) starting I will have to institute a proper routine and exercise WILL have a place in it.

Lindsey Weigh in, July 25

Previous weight: 185
Current weight: 183

So I'm definitely going down again--whew! I went back and looked--we've only been doing this for 7.5 weeks and I've already lost 10 pounds. That's pretty cool! I would love for it to be closer to 2 pounds a week, but 1 pound per week is at least something!

Last week I did South Beach except for Saturday--went out with my girlfriends and I had a slice of pie for dessert. I picked the one with the least calories at least, but I still indulged. I'm not real worried about it. I also worked out 4 times, like I've been trying to do forever! I did have to do two of those workouts at night--I'm finding that as much as I hate spending my free time that way, at least it gets done.

This weeks goals: I'm still doing South Beach, but getting to the point where it feels really boring. Vegetables... again?! But I'll persevere. Maybe I just need to find some fresh recipes to get me interested again. And I'll aim for working out 3 times... we have a play date every morning this week, and you'll be here all weekend (YAAAAAAY!!), so I don't know if I can commit to 4 times. But I think walking around the quilt fair should count for something! ;)

Sweet, sweet progress!!

I weighed myself this morning (after breakfast) and the scale said 182. Yay!!! Finally, the number reflects how I feel in my clothes. I can tell I'm getting thinner and I love it. LOVE IT!! I know it doesn't mean I've lost 3 pounds since Wednesday... maybe I was just having a heavy day? Anyway, whatever the reason, I'm pumped! I just hope Monday looks just as good, if not better!

I'm hoping that at 180 I'll be in some size 14 stuff... we'll soon see. :)
