So how did I do week one?
- 6.6 lbs lost
- drank 64 oz of water 5 of 7 days, the other two days just managed 32 oz.
- Walked 3 of 7 days.
First,with my weight loss this week you’d think I probably had to starve myself but I think it’s due mainly to two things – drinking water and actually eating more but having a concentration on more fruits and vegetables. One of my biggest problems with my managing my weight is that I tend to skip a LOT of meals which slows my metabolism way down.
While I did pretty well drinking my water, I need to make sure I get the 64 oz in every day and that means starting to drink earlier in the day.
My goal for exercise was to walk or bike 5 of 7 days and I fell short on this one. I’ll blame Chesty’s surgery and try to do better.
So how did you do Juliann .Pam, and anyone else playing along?
Wow, that is great. I have a hard time getting water down. Keep up the good work.>Diane in Alaska
Mary….6.5 weeks in one week is awesome! 6.5 weeks in 1 month is great. Don’t try to lose it too fast. Congratulations!
Wow … that’s great and incredible. I absolutely HAVE to do something … My diabetes is going to get out of control unless I toughen up on myself. I’m checking WW on line out and might be joining in with the group. I’ll set a profile up soon.>Flatlander (Linda)
I’ve been on Jenny Craig now for 3 weeks and it took me that long to lose 6.5 pounds! You’re doing great. One thing that Jenny does is have you eat 3 meals and at least 2 snacks with tons of fruits and veggies. That is really making a difference for me too. I tend to skip meals too, and eat fast food a lot when I do eat a meal. I need to concentrate on being more active and getting more water down each day. 40 oz. is my limit so far! Keep it up, Mary!>Michele in TN
Wow, great, Mary! I did not fare so well. I think my days have been way too stressful and I have not been journaling. I will start clean on Monday and see where I go. Water and exercise are my downfalls also. Although I got out and walked more this week than last!
Great success. I have been successful in weightloss (40 lbs) in the past. I struggle every day to keep it off. I used to have many tips, but be darned if I can think of any right now.
great job Mary!!!>>Keep up the great work!>>I’ve been trying to drink more water and behave myself – had a small ‘lapse’ yesterday as we did wendy’s for dinner and i did NOT want another salad so I got a bacon cheeseburger .. oh and a blizzard the other nite .. but i can’t kick myself for those, just make adjustments and move forward . >>and drink MORE WATER (that’s a message to me)>>grace
CLAP CLAP CLAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Way to go mary! I’ve gained about 6 back of the 30 I lost but that’s ok…lots of stress right now. keep it up!>hugs>laurie
Yay, Mary!! That is so awesome!
Congratulations on the great weight loss!!
Great job on the weightloss Mary! I think I may join you on your journey. I’ll start posting my stats on Wednesday’s along with you. I’m not following any particular program ~ I just need to get back to a regular schedule and drink wwwaaayyy more water! 🙂 ~Jessica
Fantastic weight loss – congratulations! I can’t believe how much you lost in one week.>>I went to a late WW meeting yesterday – 3:45 instead of my normal 7:45 as we didn’t get back from camping until almost noon. Only .4 of a pound this week. Disappointing, but I told myself that weighing later in the day after two meals, etc. definitely makes a difference. Also, it was hard to not snack and nibble – my normal camping behavior – and I fell off the wagon a little at times. At least I lost something. I have high hopes of doing better this week. 8 pounds so far in 6 weeks – certainly better than nothing!>>Now – if I could only find the urge to exercise!
Wednesday completely slipped by! I am not weighing myself for a month so I don’t know about that but I did walk more than 12000 steps every day the last week and I have added some weight work to help build muscle.>Great job on the weight loss. That first week is very inspirational.
