Friday

Fat Ticker Friday III

Woohoo! Can you believe we've been doing this for three weeks?? How do you feel? I feel great! (Got my eye on that "5 pounds gone" badge still...) I didn't get a chance to run Thursday because we had dinner late, so I did an hour of Wii Fit instead and I will run today instead and do arms.

I'm anxious to see how I did this morning (I weigh in at 8 am-ish and I'll report back).

Weightloss: 1 pound!! woohoo! although this is when i feel like "one lonely pound at a time" and it feels frustrating, but it does add up. i have to remember that.
Goal for next week: eat better and i don't just mean deleting the bad stuff, i mean eating more often, good carbs with proteins. i too often leave off the protein because of time or skip a meal but i have to be better about that, which all goes back to being prepared. when i don't have all my snacks and "good" food stocked up, i run out, forget to eat, all of that. ok. better next week.

I only had one major indiscretion and that was having McDonalds on the way home from the hospital at 9 at night Monday (after visiting me mumsy) because that was dinner, and I had forgotten to eat most of the day. And no, I did not get the grilled chicken sandwich and water that I was convinced I would form my mouth to order, instead I found myself saying, I'll take the two-cheeseburger meal with a coke. Zoinks! I know, I know. (She is home now, by the way).
I will post my photo essay of loveliness soon, I had a camera mishap but it's all fixed. If you were wondering what I'm talking about, Monday's question was more of a couple questions to be told in pictures, and you can be as creative as you want! The more creative, the funner. I know funner isn't a word but I like it. Here are the topics:

1. Someone or something that inspires you.

2. Something that you love to do.

3. Something that makes you crazy.

4. Something healthy in your life.

So link it up and let's see what you got! And go ahead, let it fly -- how much did you lose or gain this week? Make sure you weigh in -- this week's prize is a blog makeover by Doodlebug Designs!! (And check her out even if you don't win -- she seriously rocks! And she's very reasonably priced!)

Man, we're creeping up on that ticker, can you believe we've gotten rid of an entire person worth of weight? 144 pounds so far!!??? High fives all around! And remember that "life to-do list" we did last week? A lot of us had "travel" on there.. and if you want some more inspiration and have 5 minutes to spare, watch this. Seriously, it is awesome and I LOVE THE SONG! It's called "Where the hell is Matt" and he's a guy who dances around the world. Love it! Happy FTF everyone!

  6. I'm down 4.8 pounds thanks to lots of exercise. Apparently the two workout sessions a day is working for me. (I can't physically do one workout session for more than 30 minutes.)

  8. 2 more pounds lost and a great workout week. still need to work on snacking but getting better.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Meg... don't be discouraged! And don't apologize. Just stick with it!

    As far as my weight loss, I'm down 1 pound. I had hoped for more but a pound is a pound! I drank lots of water this week and did well with my eating. Now if I can just get the work outs going I might really get somewhere! Happy Friday!

  10. I'm not sure how to report my loss since I gained 2 lbs last week. So, this week I am down 4 pounds from last friday's weigh-in, which is a net loss of 2 more pounds from my original weight.

    My contribution in the Mr. Linky wasn't actually done for this, but it certainly fits as something (someone) who can drive me crazy at times!

  11. Down .8. Kind of discouraging, but at least it's down! Don't give up everyone! We can do this!

  12. No loss this week yet again but I know it's because I had to take it easy because of knee pain. Not getting in as much exercise as I'm used to.

    And Meg, please don't feel discouraged. Even though this contest is about the # of pounds, you should really focus more on how you feel and inch loss. That 2 lbs could be anything really, no worries. Just keep going, eat healthy and exercise. You are staying accountable and that is what counts.

  13. I'm at a stand still. No loss but no gain. Ugh! In my defense lol my mommy visited on Monday and I over ate as I expected. Then my wedding anniversary was yesterday and I again...over ate=) So my little girls and I are off to sweat all that yummy food off right now!

  14. I'm down about 1.5 lbs. for a total of 3.5.

    Not too shabby!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Down only .4! But, that is better than nothing! Bootcamp starts next week so its on like Donkey Kong!

  16. checking in with no plan to comment but LAUGHED at the 'found myself saying' and hope you laughed as well.

    done.

    move on.

    HAPPY WEEKEND.

  17. Just as I hoped, no weight gain but no weight lost. I stayed the same. Could be better, could be worse....I did "OK" which I cannot stand and had to write an entire blog about it. Good luck to whoever wins and to those who worked thier tails off! Working hard and eating cleanly could be the difference on the scale next week! When your working out hard and eating right its cumulative. IF your body holds the weight via salt, hormones etc. it may be released the following week. Thats how it is for me anyway.
    Peace,
    Diva

  18. I'm down 2 lbs this week. Makes up for the zero last week! I'm happy though, especilly since my kids have been sick all week and I haven't been able to workout that much.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I lost two pounds again! Wahoo!
    Happy Birthday to me!

  21. I have lost 2 more pounds for a total of 5. I am so excited. I will be right where I want to be if I can keep up this momentum.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Happy Friday morning everyone! I only have a loss of .6 lbs to report. I'm thankful for this amount though. Vacation wasn't pro diet for me. I indulged in Mom's home cooking. Hang in there and here's to an awesome next week!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I just joined in on this on Monday. So my weight loss since Monday is -1.8!! Feelin Good! Can't wait until next Friday when its a FULL week!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I lost 2#! Feeling it in some of my clothes too :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I lost 2 lbs this week. I have to say I am a little disappointed... I have been working SO hard at this and am only down 4.8 total!! The only thing keeping me from being totally bummed is that I have started to notice a difference in my body.

    Gained .4- damn those chocolate covered almonds.

  27. hey there...down .5, not much but, something

    ReplyDelete
  28. No loss, but no gain, either, whew! I was actually up a pound mid-week (thanks, Aunt Flo! ;-P), but I stayed steady with the food and exercise and it went away. Hopefully never to be found again.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm back up .4lbs. I do have to say I love my new scale - I just tap on it and it tells me how much I weighed last week then I stand on it and it weighs me now and at the end tells me the difference - of course I didn't like the + sign I got today but such is life.

    ReplyDelete
  30. i did GOOD this week. for me, having hashimoto's thyroiditis makes it very difficult to lose weight. 1/2 pound per week is the 'norm' for ppl like me. so, i'm excited.

    last week: 213.6
    this week: 211.0

    Oh yeah, baby...2.6 pounds lost! lol

    i'm going to be answering the question and posting my official weigh in on my website later today. we are heading out to a movie that starts at noon and gotta make sure the girls get ready, and me, too. lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I didn't weigh in last week, so for the past two weeks I had a 1.6 pound gain to today. I know this is partly because I haven't been able to do much in the working out dept these past two weeks due to RA flaring and fibromyalgia adding its 2 cents. I hope that I'll feel better to be able to report some weight loss next week.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Down another pound this week. Yippee! I keep thinking that even it it's only 1 lb a week that it would still be at least 50 lbs over a year. And knowing that the woman's body, left unchecked, will gain about 5 lbs a year, I'm at least counteracting that. So with today's weigh-in, I've lost 5 lbs total so far! YIPPEE!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I am down 2 pounds this week. Not sure that I deserve it, but I'll take it. I did awesome on the exercise front, not so good on the eating.

    I am really going to try to get with the program this coming week. I just realized that I am now only 9 pounds away from a 'normal' BMI. Pretty exciting since I have already lost over 50 pounds in the last year.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Everybody is doing so good! Ahhh ... I gained 1.4lbs since last Friday. I am fluctuating up & down so much lately ... don't know what's going on. It was a busy, crazy week though. I knew I would probably gain, I was just hoping for much less than this!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Lost 1.5 pounds this week. This is a slow go for me :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. Up 2 pounds this week. :( But not giving up! Goals for next week are to cut down on the stress snacking my managing my stress in a better manner -- like, oh, say EXERCISING! *grin*

    PS oops! Please delete my link from Mr. Linky -- I did not participate in the photo essay this week.

  40. I lost .7 again...sigh didn't meet my goal of 1-2 pounds, but at least it's a loss, right?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Completely forgot to weigh in last week, but par for the course~ no loss or gain in the past two weeks, which is okay by me. :)

    Good luck everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am down 2 so that is 3 total for me so far!! Didn't have a great week, ended up with blisters on Sunday so no running til today. I did OK food wise though and I guess it shows!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I didn't loose but I didn't gain either. Considering what week of the month it is for me - this is HUGE in & of itself!!! ;-) I'm hoping to post a nice big loss next week.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Okay, part of me doesn't even want to give my weigh-in this week

    I'm down 7 lbs again. No shit!

    People are going to leave nasty comments on my blog, I just know it. They are going to think I'm a liar, or a cheat, or some freak of nature. Honestly, I'm none of those. I even squatted down to make sure I was really, truly reading the scale correctly.

    I’m heading to Target this weekend. I’m going to buy a decent scale. A digital one. Not this old dial one I have – I hate waiting for the dial to stop swinging back and forth and back and forth and back and forth after stepping on the damn thing anyway!

    Trust me, when I weighed myself back on Sept 8th, I checked again, and again, and again. I did the same thing last week. And again this week. I’m not sure what is going on, but my pants are getting loose again, so even if the weight loss numbers are off because of my scale, I certainly am indeed loosing weight. I wore jeans yesterday that were loose by the end of the day (you know, how they loosen up a bit throughout the day), that I couldn’t even wear at the end of last winter. So I’m feeling good, but I guaran-damn-tee you this sort of weight loss has never been easy for me in the past. I swear it’s all the weight loss karma coming from all the participants here! Thank you & a big WOO HOO!

  45. Hi, It's me again. But this time I'm posting for my sister in law Danielle from Alberts-family. Her computer is down but she is so dedicated that she called me to make sure "I post her weight loss on HFH because she'll go nuts this weekend because she can't post".

    Drum roll please....she lost 3 pounds (I hate her - just kidding). She lost the 2 she gained last week plus an extra.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I ate well under my calorie goals this week, and I think I may have under-eaten enough that my body freaked out and started hanging on because I gained .4 pounds. Call it .5 if it makes it easier. Still, my jeans fit better. No, I haven't been gaining muscle. Go figure.

    Gained: .5 pounds

  47. I have no idea how, but, I'm down one pound this week.

  48. I am down 1.5 pounds. I am so glad to because my monthly visitor is here and I thought for sure I would gain.

    BTW...my blog is not on the sidebar...Cooper Chaos (www.team-cooper.blogspot.com)
    Thanks

  49. I'm down 1 pound. I feel like crap today with this cold/allergy junk that just won't go away. Thus, I didn't participate in the fun questions you have for today. Maybe next week. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. yeah, i'm down 2.4 this week!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Sadly I'm up 1 pound this week. It's been a tough week and I haven't been able to eat at regular times. Twice I've had a Whopper Jr. while driving. I haven't done that in years! Hopefully, I can get things going on a more normal schedule this week.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well, I think I missed the deadline but it's ok because I have a computery husband to do all my blog tweaking for me!
    I didn't even get to weigh myself until this afternoon and I am up a pound. Had houseguests all week but I think I'm in the clear now so I'll renew my efforts in the morning. It will be nice to detox and slow down the crazy a little!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I don't know if this is in time for your time zone, but I was gone today.

    I lost .5 lb. Yay! Again, not a great week, but I'll take any loss.

    Next week, I want to keep better track. I may have trouble as company is coming...

  54. No loss, No gain

    Been sick this week so guess the same is good. Will post in my blog tomorrow

  55. I lost three pounds this week! After 2.5 gain last week, I am a very happy girl!

    ReplyDelete
  56. OK, I am late! I am embarrassed but I did not lose any this week. Ugh. I forgot to weigh until after I ate breakfast, so that might have something to do with it, but at least I did not gain.

    Woe is me.

  57. I'm down 1 pound this week.

  58. I'm late to the party, but my post it up...with a 1 pound gain. UGH!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sadly, I have no weight loss to report.

    However, I guess that that is better than reporting a gain. We don't have anything planned in the evenings this week, which was the problem with this past week, so I should make it to the gym at least 5 of the 7 days.

    ReplyDelete
  60. No weightloss again this week, but I didn't gain either!!

    I've got to work harder this week!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I don't know if it is too late to hop on board with your weight loss journey, but if not I would love to join in. I've been following along with you all and this is the first time I've linked up. I lost a pound this week...Hooray! My goal for the coming week is to eat less and exercise more. Congrats to all the losers and here is to a great week!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Well when I first weighed in, I was at 140.6, then I went up to 142 & now I'm back down to 140. Keep playing with the same old 2 lbs!!

    Congrats to those who lost!!! WAY TO GO!!!!
