Weigh In Week 6

This is it! This is the day of reckoning! How did we all do. I lost 2 pounds exactly this week. I like good strong round numbers.

I'm thinking I must have the right amount of calories because I'm consistently losing 1.5 to 2.00 pounds a week. Id like it to be faster, who wouldn't? But at this rate I suppose its healthier, that's what they all say.

I've been eating well rounded meals with salad as my base. Last night I had steak!! Yummy. That's the huge advantage to counting calories; you can still eat of all the food groups. I looked at South Beach only to discover I was pretty much doing it without knowing simply because things like white potatoes and white flour are laden with calories. I haven't had white potatoes since January and I don't even miss them.

Anyway on to the challenge! So what did you lose this week?

  1. I would love to join in the group if you aren't only accepting cute fat people. I lost 1 1/2 lbs. this week.

  2. Hey great job on loosing the 2 pounds. I agree I would love to see the weight come off faster from me to. The dh is done with tax season now so the treadmill is at the top of the list to get fixed. When that is ready, hopefully it has been long enough that will seem like something new and the weight will start dropping faster then. Oh yeah I lost 2.5 pounds so I am up t a total of 32.5

  3. I lost no pds. I gained, ugh.
    Original weight in March when I started was 167, I went down to 163 and now am back up to 165.
    I don't get it. I really am trying. I am ready to throw out my scale.
    Hopefully I will have a better week this week
    Congrats on your loss, that's fantastic. Keep up the good work.

  4. No loss this week. I am just glad i did not gain since I ate junk much of the week.

  5. I lost 4.5 lbs this week! I was dreading the weigh-in because I ate out, drank soda, etc. But by the grace of God and plenty of activity it worked out.

  6. Southerner welcome to the group. Of course you can join. We're glad to have you on board!

    Heather you just keep pulling in those good numbers. Way to go.

    Vanessa almost any time I have tried to diet there have been lots of little false starts before I take off. Youve just been shaking out your wings. This week you will fly!!

    Being accountable is half the battle. Never be afraid to check in even if it is a gain. We all have those gains. We've all been there. Nobody is sitting here in judgement of anyone else. This is a place for encouragement. So now go out and lose those pounds this week girl!
    Cajunchik staying the same is far better than gaining. Good for you.

    mamaolive, what can I say? You ROCK this week!

  7. I cannot believe it, but I did not gain any weight this week. We went out to eat twice to celebrate - selling the house and my birthday. And we splurged with dessert. I've been doing well at home, though, because I don't have time to bake any cookies!

  8. Good for you nikki. I know you have tons of stuff going on in your life. Glad you maintained.

  9. I lost three pounds this week. Whcih really is kinds just a one lb loss from what I was before the disaster last week! : ) Anyhow it is a 6lb loss overall!!

  10. Vanessa if you check back in can you tell me how much of that gain was this week? Was it both pounds?

  11. great job everyone... I lost one pound. I started a new job this week, so I will not be at my restaraunt job as much...
    translation... I most definately will not be nibbling as much. So I am looking forward to next weeks weigh in...
    Yeah Us!!

  12. Nothing this week :(
    I hate not seeing that scale budge! And I was doing fine until the weekend, and I had that terribly salty Mexican food LOL
    Hopefully, I'll have a better report next week.

  13. Great job!

    I have to get motivated again to lose. This is all very motivating. Thanks!

  14. Good job everyone!

    If you have put off checking out Spark People, I highly recommend you try it. Thanks for the heads up Mrs. Darling! I lost five pounds!

  15. Good grief Brandi! You're a losing machine! Congrats.

    ashley lad you're welcome to join us if you'd like.

  16. I promise - I weighted Tuesday morning at my in-law's house, I just didnt' make it to a computer until now.

    I am down 1/2 a pound.

    I'm so proud of everyone this week. It's nice to know we are all in this together.


Thank you for taking the time to encourage me on my journey! Your comment is appreciated!
