  • Yep, I started January 1st at 205 and I'm now down to 147, I have about 12-15Ibs 8 still want to lose but I went from size 18 to now 8-10. I had worn my old clothes from 200 down to 150 lol. Congratulations on your achievement!
  • Here we go again! Welcome to all those joining us in the second round! I really don't know a realistic goal so I'm going to be really conservative this time around, but make no mistake I'm going to push my body even harder. With only 18lbs to lose but also want to gain muscle, I'm going to take my time and do it right.…
  • Congrats Jay! Hello all, my name is Kassie. I was part of the first challenge as well and this group pushed me from 178 down to 148.8. I'm at the point where I expect to lose slow so my goals for this challenge will be low. I surpassed last challenges goal by 11lbs. Anyone can add me as a friend. I'm here to give support…
  • Great dedication and support from this group. Final weigh in-149.4. I didn't expect to blow by my target of 160. Next challenge for me will be much harder, less than 20 to lose to reach my target weight, but I'm confident this group will help me through a chunk of it and maybe set new goals! Great job everyone and keep up…
  • 154.0. I will post a link on my wall to the next challenge so everyone I've friended from the community can join if they like.
  • Definitely want to do this again. Really keeps you focused and motivated.
  • 164.9=( been so sick and going to work has made it worse. HASN'T seemed to ruin my appetite though, but it never does. Going to doc after work tomorrow if I haven't shaken this fever, been going on since Sunday. Hope everyone else had a good week!
  • 165, was 164.4 yesterday but a couple of slices of pizza later.....Well you know...:-)
  • I've had it set to lightly active since I started 65 days ago. But 3 weeks ago joined a gym and finally dropped from 2lbs a week to 1.5lbs in settings to see if I can slow my progress. On avg other than 2 weeks where I pretty much didn't see the scale move I'm losing double what I have it set for. Setting it to 1.5 has…
  • Thanks that helps a lot, marissafit. I don't see why it would be suggested to go sedentary, as I'm on the go from the time I go to work until I get off followed by exercise. Setting to a lower activity is only going to ensure in not getting proper nutrition since as you change them macros and calorie goals change. Would be…
  • I stalled out for two weeks during my 7th and 8th week and I diligently weigh and measure everything. It eventually started back up again. I didn't change anything with my diet other than try to force a couple more cups of water a day in me and add a little more protein to my diet.
  • Thanks everyone for your thoughts and advice. I'm going to edit my settings today to lose 1.5lbs a week and shoot for 1400 cal a day vs 1200 and see if that keeps the extra hunger pangs in check. I also have to work on getting my meals more balanced. I tend to eat less early on and have to try and make it up later in the…
  • I wear a 38D and found sports bras made to fit specified sizes. So mines a 38D sports bra for intense workouts, they also had for light and moderate intensities. I love it, it's super comfortable and adjustable like a normal bra. I would say one of the most comfortable bras I've ever owned in my life. As far as anything…
  • I just have social anxiety in general, like I said I didn't mind how I looked before and I'm not worried the way people look at me I could care less. I just have general nervousness that effects me. I just don't want to join a class and have 5 others glaring at me. Not until I'm comfortable with going there. I'm a very shy…
  • So if I go by this, I went though and did a quick calculate to see how many cals it says for doing a moderate pace elliptical for 1 hour. It gave me 2 numbers and each set is for calculating daily with 2 different methods. Calories used by exercise and calories used during exercise. But I only want to use the calculation…
  • My whole philosophy on dieting was to control how much I eat and when to hopefully make a life long change. I was always one of those people who snacked on something when I felt hungry, regardless if I really was or not. I never really ate that bad before pre-diet, I just ate more often. The only thing I measure is my…
  • Sounds more like I should adjust, but I will drop it to 1.5 a week and see how the next two weeks and go from there. The reason I posted was because I discussed this with my fiancee, who has never struggled with weight, and he told me not to adjust so I haven't, almost making me sound nuts for pondering the idea to adjust.…
  • Here let me put it this way, I feel like Im losing weight TOO fast. Pre-excercise phase of my diet I lost 30 lbs in 2 months and that was with a 2 week stall in loss towards the end of FEB. I'm 5-8 and was 204lbs when joining and now I'm at 169.2. This week alone I've lost 4.1lbs and I still have to go workout today. And…
  • I figured the cal burned was high but I just log exactly what the machines say and not the amount MFP shows, which the machines cal burn is much lower. I try to aim for about 160-165bpm on my heart rate for my excercising so its a bit more intense than the lower end of my target HR scale. I use Arc trainers, Elipticals and…
  • As I started losing weight, that's the first place I noticed losing fat at was my back. Good luck :-)
