    @GrandmaJackie, Thank you. I do feel better today. Oh yes, pool workouts are the best! I feel like I am in the WORST muscular condition of my life. I really need to concentrate on strength training more than cardio right now.
  • GrandmaJackieGrandmaJackie Posts: 25,539Member Member Posts: 25,539Member Member
    @tiabirdie56, I hear you honey, I went to a Body Works Class yesterday. Parts of it was extremely hard but the key I did my best, thanks for having strength this week, :)

    My name is Jenn I have 5 kids (1st one just left for college this year and another one that will be leaving next year). I am 39 and married to an amazing man. I work full time and have very little time to work out. Hopefully once the younger kids 10 and 13 get a little older, I will have more time. Right now I focus on eating right and maybe two to three times a week getting 45 minutes or so of cardio.

    Beginning Weight ~ 175-178
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 155.3
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 135
    My weigh in days will be Friday (these are usually my lowest weights, lol)


    November 20, 2018 ~ 155.3
    11/23 ~ 157.8 day after Thanksgiving uugggh
    11/30 ~ 153.8 that looks better
    December 7 ~ 152.3 I thought this week I would have been lower. Did really well. Not a drop of alcohol, clean eating, lots of water, and everything. I just don't think my body can lose 2 pounds a week no matter what. I am getting closer to my goal weight, so maybe that's why to. I am proud that I stuck to my plan this week and am down 1.5 pounds, so I'll take it!
    12/14 ~ 151.1 Going in the right direction for sure. Hopefully we can keep this pattern going!
    12/21 ~ 152.8 And I am back up again,lol. I'm holding on for dear life for December. I am still down 1 pound this month and that maybe all I get.

    @jenn990205, What an inspiration, raising a family, 5 children, working full time and making time to workout.
  • jenn990205jenn990205 Posts: 996Member Member Posts: 996Member Member
    @GrandmaJackie Thanks, to be honest I haven't made it to the gym once in the last couple of weeks. But holding on, so that's all I can do. Lol, I thought it would get easier as the kids started to leave home and stuff, but I am quickly finding out that it's not. They seem to still constantly need me, just differently now. We also just found out the one graduating this year is contemplating staying home and going to school here in town. So we will see what happens with that.

    Thank goodness Tish mentioned being able to break the cardio up into segments. Even with all my shopping, running and working I have been able to fit in 3 10 minute segments per day of aerobic dancing. All it takes is 2 to 3 songs and it's fun!

    My name is Tish
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 177.2
    Challenge Goal Weight ~167 - 1/2 pound per week
    November 20, 2018 ~ 177.2 - 42 lbs left to reach my ultimate goal. It was 40 lbs on Nov. 9th when 175 appeared, then was rudely replaced by 177. Lol. This number loves me.

    11/27 ~ 178.8 - Been doing everything I should not the last 5 days; eating late in the day (8pm) eating bread, no electrolytes. One last croissant beckoning me today😊 and hopefully
    it's over.

    11/30 - 178.2 - Lol. Looks like I lost weight. Not. I prefer Wednesday's weight, 174.8😅 but obviously not that much since I ate pretzels last night. Keto carb havoc!
    December 4 - 😒 178.8 - That's rough , but better than yesterday. I think I should post daily weights for December.
    12/11 - 176.6 - Forgot it was weigh in day. By no means was this a linear loss. I was December 4 weight again yesterday!
    12/14 - 175.4 - Gotta post my own good report. I almost don't believe it. I was this weight once or twice during my traverse up and down the 170's since September! Praying it continues downward. I'm more than ready to be OUT of this decade! Doing EVERY THING RIGHT.

    12/18 - 176.2 - My mac and cheese😁

    12/25 - 174.8 - Eating carbs, up and down a smaller range of weights this past week.

    11/27~ 178 (Somehow I dropped 6lbs in two weeks. No idea how that happened!)
    December 4~ 176.6 (So annoyed. Definitely should be lower. I’ve been so good about my calories :s)
    12/11~ 172.8 (HECK YEAH BOIS)
    12/18~ 170.6 (Only mad because I weighed in .4lbs lower the last two days, but also I have the world's most obnoxious cold right now so maybe that's part of it I DUNNO)
    12/26~ 169.0 (A day late and SO WORTH IT. Had a great Christmas and I'm pretty happy with today's weigh in!)
