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. :)

Lindsey Weigh in, July 18

Previous weight: 185
Current weight: 185

Aaaaaand I'm officially annoyed, discouraged, frustrated... What's the point of eating so well if I don't see any progress?! Grrrrr!

This week I'll still eat well. I'll still exercise. If I don't see a lower number on the scale on Monday, I reserve the right to be truly pissed off. And then I'll have to re-evaluate my process... but if it means I'll have to work even harder, I don't know what I'm gonna do...

Monday's weigh in... a little late!

Current weight: 185

I weighed in on Monday morning. I didn't lose anything from the previous week which is annoying, but I also didn't do Jillian--I did exercise 3 times, but it was walking, not anything hard core. I followed South Beach 95% of the time, splurged once on some Oreos. But honestly, I doubt that three oreos could derail everything. I've come to believe that weight loss stalls out sometime but that's no reason to stop trying. Besides, some of my pants are fitting better already and Malcom says he's noticed my weight loss. :)

This week: I'll exercise four times--yes still a goal of four, I KNOW I can do it--and stick to South Beach. I hope to see progress again on Monday!

Holly Weigh-In: 7-14-11

Before I forget (because you know I will)I weighed in this morning at 180.4. Soooo glad my weight is done bouncing around from post-San Diego sunburn trauma. I'm back to eating smaller (or maybe just appropriate?) portions though I'm not logging every single calorie I put in my mouth. Some days I do, but usually I just try to eat healthier meals or if we eat out I get a kids meal, or no fries/soda, etc.... I think that snacking is my biggest pitfall. I know that a lot of people swear that a bunch of small meals is better than 3, but that just leads me to over-snacking so I'm more or less sticking with 3 normal meals and the occasional little snack in between.

I am just the worst when it comes to exercise but I have been moving around a lot more than normal because of all the home improvements we have been doing. This week my goal is to Jillian 3 times and anything else is just gravy :) Only 35 pounds to lose! I'm hoping to get to 160 by Christmas so that is 20 ish weeks to lose 20 pounds! Woot!

Lindsey Weigh In, July 4

I'm switching to a Monday weigh-in because my brain works better that way.

Starting weight: 193
Current weight: 185

I am very happy with my progress so far! I can tell I'm getting thinner because my clothes fit better and my stomach doesn't stick out as much. I only exercised two times last week and I hate that. The Jillian stuff is only 20 minutes, so I should be able to make time for it, but life sometimes gets in the way. I was perfectly faithful to the South Beach Diet though, so that's good. I got to add back in some carbs, so I'm pretty happy! I do feel a little sick of vegetables, but as soon as I eat them and they taste so good and they keep me full for so long, I remember why I like eating them.

This week's goals:
DIET: Stick to South Beach. I get to add back in another carb every day, so now I'll have three servings a day. I think I could stay there for a while. It includes cereal as long as it has lots of fiber and low sugar, plus I get to have a serving of fruit every day. And I can now have dark chocolate "occasionally;" I don't know what they mean by occasionally, so I'm trying once every three days. I don't think that'll make me gain back too much weight, especially since it's only one ounce, which is SIX hershey's kisses... that sounds like so few, but it's really a lot!

EXERCISE: I really want to work out four times this week. I know I can do it--maybe if it gets to Friday and I haven't done enough, I'll have to give up on my evenings of tv-watching and sewing to get all four workouts in. I really like the 30-day Shred and I feel like I'm getting better at it, so that's pretty motivating. I just have to focus on those size ten jeans hanging up in my room... I really want to fit back into those, so bad!! I'm hoping I can do it before 2012, but as long as I keep progressing, I'm okay with it taking a little longer. Maybe next Spring I can be skinny for a while before getting pregnant again! :p
