Friday

Fat Ticker Friday!

It's been a really fun week here in Atlanta! Of course, it was somewhat of a challenge working in the workouts and eating well with our homemade field trips to the children's museum, the train museum, the kids museum, the aquarium, apple picking....

But most days and most meals were of the healthy variety. And there was a ton of walking and pushing strollers. I was able to get in two runs and a long, hilly, heavy-breathing type of power walk, one "arm" day and two "leg" days. Our "last chance" workout last night was the walk and some legs and I honestly am just hoping not to post a gain after the birthday cake (and I will weigh in like usual around 8 a.m. and report back.)

Weigh in: ONE POUND! WOOOOHOOO! ok, I really was scared when I stepped on the scale. But seeing that loss renewed my excitement about staying on course. So yay! I'll take one pound during a birthday week (seeing as I had some cake and whatnot). Happy happy joy joy dance!


***
How did you do??? If you are just now joining us, let me know if you don't see your name on the side there and I'll add it. Also, if you weighed in late last week, please leave last week's total and this week's total in your comments so we can count it!! :)

This week we're giving away a great prize, an autographed copy of the Body Art Cookbook by Tanya Lee and if you want to know more about it, click here. I'll announce the winner first thing Saturday morning and remember, you must weigh in Friday to be eligible for the random drawing (by Mr. Random dot org.)

So tell us tell us tell us how you did this week! All the dirty details!!


I can't wait to move that ticker! Happy Friday!

  1. I had a gain of 2.5 lbs unfortunately.

    got some great information today and will adjust my diet, and will work on my exercise.

    I have a feeling that my T.O.M. is coming shortly which might account for some gain.

  2. I am a big loser! I lost three pounds and am down one full size! I was watching Biggest Loser season six and was so glad that I decided to get with a program. I hope you do great this week even being out of town!
    Peace,
    Diva

  3. I lost 1.5 pounds. I'm actually weighing myself twice a week because when I started this on September 1 I weighted in on that Sunday (Aug. 31) so my "real weight loss" I take from Sunday but for the purposes of this I'm weighing myself Friday mornings too. So it's not entirely accurate, but a loss is a loss, right?

  4. Last week I weighed in at 159 pounds and this week I'm down to 157.5! Plus I'm finally getting closer to single digit pant sizes. In March I was in a size 14 but since we adopted a second much younger dog I've gone from a 14 down to a 10.

  5. Alright. . . I'm lame! I stayed the same. No gain, no loss! STAYED right where I was. I guess I should be excited I didn't gain, but alas, I FEEL BLAH!

    Next week weight loss here I come!!! YAY!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I am just joining... but am up a pound from last week. I heard about this challenge from a friend and decided I could use to the support!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Stayed the same!

    Need to get more exercise in.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I lost .8 but I'm hoping that more exercise will help.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yea I'm with you Jen. No loss, no gain. I'm not happy. I've been doing so well! Next week is a brand new start, we'll see if we can get some more of this lard to melt off then.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Did not lose a pound!!! But it was a horrible week for me. Lots of external stress. I am looking forward to a better week next week. I REALLY WANT one of those weight loss bagdes for my blog!!!

  16. I gained 1.4!! I suck.

    I really don't know why! I have been to the gym EVERY weekday the last two weeks, done good at WW; the only thing I can think of is that it is almost THAT time and I always weigh more the week before. I better have a huge loss next week or I will cry. ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I lost 1.5 pounds! I was very surprised because I wasn't so good with the working out this week. We usually try to take family walks but the kiddos have been sick this week so we didn't do much. It is a motivator to lose so I'm hoping I can ride the wave of excitement into next week and do it again!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hey! I lost another 1.4 pounds! I didn't do very well on my goals this week either. Great job everyone! Keep up the good work :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I lost 1 pound!!

    Sadly, I think it's because I'm losing muscle. I haven't lifted weights for almost 2 weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, it's not as bad as I thought it would be. After the big loss last week I figured some would rebound. I gained 2 lbs back. Grrr.

    Oh well. Here's my confession: I had an extra snack each night again. Must. Not. Buy. Snacks.

    Back on track next week. I hope.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am SO not happy this week. I am up almost a pound (.08)- actually exactly as much as I lost last week.

    I am a bit worried b/c I went to the Dr last week and found out that my thyroid is out of whack. I have started on a thyroid hormone replacement drug that might make me gain for a few weeks before I can start losing again.

    SO frustrating, but at least I am on the path to better health. That just means I have to work that much harder to reach my goals with you lovely ladies. :)


    Blessings!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. okay make that 0.8 not .08- wishful thinking I guess!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Gain of .5 :( Sorry!! I had a bad couple of weeks, but I'm going grocery shopping this weekend and doing it right this week!

    ReplyDelete
  24. 2 lbs down, but that's largely due to this horrid cold I have... nothing tastes good! I've gotta get with the program next week for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  25. No weight loss (or gain) for me this week. It's been a rough week, one where snacking on chips & chocolate is struggling to stay off my priority list.

    Way to go everyone!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I lost 1.5 lbs! Had a pretty good week working out, not so good with eating. So I'm pleasantly surprised.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Lost and hope to never find 3 pounds!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Add .5 for this week and we have a total of 2.9.

    YAY - I survivied the cookie explosion of '08!

    ReplyDelete
  31. It was such a tough week! Between PMS, going out to dinners, being on the go, I stayed the same. No loss, but no gain. I have high expectations for next week, though!

    ReplyDelete
  32. i got a big fat ZERO this morning! Not to happy about that but i gues thats how it sometimes. hope to do better next week.

    ReplyDelete
  33. no loss, no gain this week.
    but this was a better week, i think. i got in 6 30-45 minute workouts and i am back on track with my water intake.
    now here's hoping next week will have a loss to report too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I finally lost 1 lb! I´m so happy!
    Since I live in Paraguay, I understand that you probably won´t be able to send me the book IF I win. So, that´s ok, just let me know if I did! Then choose someone else!

    ReplyDelete
  35. WooHOO 2 lbs. and I ate icecream twice this week=) My mom is coming this next week so I'll probably gain the 3 lbs I've lost so far eating Thai food....But Thai food is healthy RIGHT!?!? Ok so I tend to OVER eat when my mom is here cooking her yummy food so next week I'm gonna have to wrok hard!

    ReplyDelete
  36. OK, last week I forgot to post and had 2 lbs off, this week I lost about 3.5 lbs more, as of yesterday. HOWEVER, I ate ice cream and brownie, something I should not have as a diabetic, and I gained a pound! So, total lost 5.5 minus 1 gained gives a grand total of 4.5 Ugh... but the ice cream and brownie sure tasted good. ;(

  37. Happy belated Birthday! ♥

    Back home from our belated summer vacation, happy to join in - although I'm a week too late... and even more happy to report a loss of one pound. I got no idea where or how I lost it during this lazy beach vacation with lots of delicious food, but it's gone.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I lost a pound--I feel good about it. I got to the gym 3 times this week, which really helped.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lost 3 pounds this week! (Yeah, I get to make up for 0 last week!) Good luck to everyone, and have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Down 1.2lbs I'm really trying HARD to only weigh myself Friday morning and it seems to be working. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am down 2 pounds this week! I am glad to be back on track after my gain of 1.4 last week which was a little disheartening since it was the first week! Now I am DONE messing around with the 5 pounds I have been losing & gaining all summer & I am ready to start shedding pounds I haven't previously lost;-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am down 3 lbs when I thought for sure I would at least have stayed the same if not gained. We ate out for lunch on Wednesday and again last night. But, I've kept up with my exercises, and that does make a difference! YIPPEE!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I had a 2 pound weight gain. I'm sorry! I've lost motivation this week!

    ReplyDelete
  44. ugh. i am up 1.2 lbs. i had a huge loss last week and then this week i got in 77 activity points (gym only time!) and i stayed on points. i am going to assume the gain can be blamed on muscle soreness! next week better be a great number!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I lost 2.5 this week! I'm celebrating! But not with food. I've been trying to stop eating as soon as I'm satisfied and saving the rest for lunch the next day. Also trying to evaluate if I'm really hungry when I want to eat. I've always been one to eat if I'm bored or tired or upset or happy or.... Well, you get the idea. It's a tough change, but it seems to be working! I've also stopped buying snacks I should avoid. I have yogurt or peanuts if I just can't stand going without a snack.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm whispering - (I gained a pound). I know BAD GIRL! No exercise this week with no power and kids home. And I stress ate all week. I knew what I was doing. I just couldn't stop. I'll do better next week. I promise.

    ReplyDelete
  47. hmph! I need to boost my willpower!! no change this week, so no loss or gain, but that's not good enough! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I gained 2 pounds this week. And up until yesterday I was actualy down 1/2 pound. Yesterday was my hubby's bday and I ate too much. Next week should be a nice big loss though.

    ReplyDelete
  49. i suck. i gained. LOL about 1.5 lbs. i am going to do this list but it will have to be a bit later...kids are almost out of school

    congrats to all the 'losers' and anyone who gained, we'll get it next wk right? :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just posted above and apparently did my math wrong. I gained ONE pound, not two. So, while it was still a gain, I do feel a little better.

    ReplyDelete
  51. 1.5 pounds this week for me. I was also worried. I felt like I didn't workout that hard. I think that's cuz we were together and I just had so much fun with you even when we were working out. Thank you so much for motivating me to that 5k and for an awesome week together! I miss you already!!!

  52. Okay, so now I'm totally taking over the comments. I left two comments- both with my name (Melanie)... but my first comment is linking to the wrong blog- it's for my regular blog, not the one I am using for my weight loss.

    So, sorry that I have totally confused you now and taken over the comments.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I am another one that gained. But I have to say I am happy with it because it is only 1 pound and normally after my "friend" has been here I am up closer to 4. I will def make up for it next week!!

    The working out has gone awesome. Looking forward to another week of working out hard!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am down 3.5 pounds this week. Yay! I just hope my body continues to lose like it has. Working out, eating less and nursing are working wonders for me!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I lost .7, it's not a lot but any loss is good. It was a full pound a couple days ago, so I have to figure out where I messed up and rectify it for this next week.

    ReplyDelete
  56. erinomatic27@hotmail.com

    Lost .8, not much but I'll take it considering I ate major carbs last night.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm still not sure on the Linky if I'm not reporting on my blog other than the ticker itself, but I will report:

    Loss 0.80 pounds (call it 1 if you'd like because I am!), and it was girl week, so ya know, that week is always screwy.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Very VERY VERY happy to report this week...1-1/2 pounds!!! Doing the happy dance here! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sorry! I totally posted the wrong URL first! So check out the second one from me!

    I didn't do too bad. I lost two pounds, and with my hubby gone all week!

    I had a rough week, so I am very happy to report that I lost .5 lb! Yay!

    To all that stayed the same (was almost me) or gained, keep on going - don't give up! We can do it!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Down 1 pound for the week!

    Slowly but surely....

    ReplyDelete
  62. I have lost 7 pounds. But I'm not sure how. Could be that the first weigh in on day 1 was at the peak of bloat week. Could be that the past week I've lost at least 47 gallons of blood and clots the size of small puppies too numberous to count. Could be that I moved the scale to the bathroom where there is more light and I can actually read the numbers better.

    I'm sure next week I'll be back to 'normal' and will have to report a gain of like 6 pounds. Bleh.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I gained 2. :( Big sadness. It is my TOM, though, so hopefully that is the reason. I added in 4 days of exercise and everything.

    ReplyDelete
  64. BOO.. BOO.. BOO!!! As of this morning I gained two pounds. UM?? I worked out as usual so the only think I could think of is my friend will be coming to visit soon. I took a test (pregnancy) just in case and it said no so that answers my question from a few weeks ago... I have to be getting my friend right??
    Oh well, I will just have to plug away again next week.
    Last week I lost 2 pounds... so it's a wash so far in our challenge!!
    Have a great weekend... I'm going to a girls weekend with my Aunts and cousins!!! YIPEE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Down one pound this week... I'm shooting for something bigger next week.

    ReplyDelete
  66. No loss, no gain. Stayed the same again. Way to go you big losers LOL Keep going everyone. We CAN do this!

  67. Up 1.5 this week. :-(

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm late, but have no change. I'll take it. It's better than a gain!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Better late then never!! I was out of town last weekend, so I didn't have chance to WI or blog about the week!!

    Anyway, I'm up 2.2lbs!! Sniff! Sniff!!! Maybe a miracle will happen by this Friday!!!

    On the upside, I joined WW and plan on getting this weight off once and for all!!! WooHOO!!
