WeightNoMore Team Chat - AUGUST 2022
August Week Three
Previous Weight: 175.4
Current Weight: 175.4
Loss to Date: 58.6
While I'm disappointed I didn't get a loss this week, I will take a maintain, especially after the weekend I've had. Lots of food, plenty of alcohol, not nearly enough activity.
This weekend, I am driving to Wisconsin and going to the Bristol Renaissance Faire, so I will not be tracking my food, and likely eating far beyond my calorie goal. I promise I'll grab veggies where I can, but you can't stop me from grabbing a giant turkey leg. There will be plenty of walking, so hopefully that helps out.5
Have fun at the faire!
Turkey is a good source of protein so go for it, just stay away from the sweets and rolls.
You'll get plenty of walking in so just enjoy and have a good weekend2
@minstrelofsarcasm Wow, the faire sounds great! I would love to eat a turkey leg lol
@SarahJoyManea I also work an office job and find it difficult to get enough steps in my day. I'm not sure I could get up any earlier (already up at 5:30am) and unfortunately only get 30 mins for a lunch break, so I am still trying out ideas for getting my step count up! I try to get up from my desk at least once an hour and walk around the building, but that's not actually a huge amount of steps. I sometimes spend a few extra minutes in the ladies' room, walking in place in the cubicle lol - that seems to help a lot. Outside of work, I've taken up Pokemon Go again which is helping me get out with my son more often so it's good for both of us!4

Total kms ran last week: 17.57 km
I need to get to 70 kg (154 lb) by Sept last week before first snow.
That would mean losing 8 pounds EACH week for the next 7 weeks - EXTREMELY unhealthy (and unrealistic). You may seriously hurt yourself attempting that. You seem to have plateaued, which is quite normal. You've lost A LOT since April, and in a healthy way. Please don't let frustration ruin your health.
Agreed! I didnt think it through and am not frustrated about plateau at this point. I know this can be beat by consistent effort which am not putting in now. Making sure I dont go up is my objective until things smooth down a bit in routine then I can focus in more effort on running again.
Thanks for catching that @MotylekOkruchy ! Much appreciated4

A couple reminders:
- The easiest way for me to process your step counts is if you post it from Sunday to Saturday - any other format may lead to incorrect values on incorrect days or cause me to go digging through older posts to find numbers
- If you do not post your steps before I post the results post, you are welcome to post them late, just do not expect to get any of the weekly titles (i.e. Most Consistent, Highest Step Counts, etc.)
- We are working together as a team to hit a monthly goal, so even if you have a "low" step count, you're still helping the group by posting it!

I started zombies run, its pretty neat, has some story and zombies chase you around in the run when pace slows down. was very immersive!

So I posted my steps last week but never pushed the button. Thats OK. They weren't that great anyway. I haven't gotten any exercise in this week, I have been busy with appointments. I am supposed to be on babysitting duty tonight just waiting for my granddaughter to get home. It's starting to cool off here but I think the heat is going to pick back up. I have to go away this weekend for work, they like all admins to go away to talk about the upcoming school year. I don't know if I can stay up late at night to work, my brain shuts off around 8, its going to be tough.3

Friday weigh in (19/08/22)
PW (Aug 12th): 189.9 lbs
CW (Aug 19th): 190.2 lbs
Sadly for todays weigh in I gained (only 0.3 lbs.) but it was a gain nonetheless, which is a bit demotivating. However it was also expected as I had a long weekend away for my husbands birthday, and to make it better for him I wasn't keeping as strict a diet or as active in the days. So really I should be pleased that I managed to mitigate most of the damage of that weekend. And I am pushing forward to hopefully go back to seeing losses again from next weeks weigh in.
@TwistedSassette - I love Pokemon Go that's something I always pick up when I'm trying to improve my step count and getting out! I also do the stepping on the spot in the loos when I have to, its needs must with steps! 🤣
@minstrelofsarcasm - Sorry about the step count format, hadn't realised there was range format requested. I'll repost next week my steps from the 14th to the 20th. Is there a date/day they need to be in for after the week is ended?
Keep at it everyone!
Sorry I can’t remember who mentioned zombies run but I tried it this morning and got an awesome walk in plus it was fun! Thank you for mentioning it. I play Pokémon go, too, but this one works up more of a sweat and lots of fun. Reminds me of the video game 7 days to die. Yes, I’m 53 and like video games 😂4

Not a problem, I don't think I made it very clear for everyone. As long as you have your steps in by noon EST the following Wednesday, you're all set! So, for this set of steps, I will need your data by the 24th at the absolute latest. Although you can absolutely post them late, just don't expect any of the "Most" titles.
I was hoping to break below 138 this week. Hopefully next week...2
~ Weigh Days ~
Due Weigh-Ins -
A weigh in is considered late if received after results are tallied Sunday morning. Not weighing in results in an NWI. Two NWIs in a row result in being dropped from the team. As in most cases, better late than never.0
Weigh in Friday
Have a great weekend, and keep up your healthy habits.4
