Here are the stats for this week from those that are currently participating:
Starting Weight: 211
Goal Weight: 180
Current Weight: 200
Recap: I hit another plateau at 202 and couldn't seem to break through it. But like last week, in the eleventh hour and on my final weigh in this morning I finally did it. I am four pounds lighter than last week, eleven pounds lighter overall. The only frustration at this point is not being able to notice much of a physical change in the mirror. I have lost more pounds than any of my children weighed at birth but to look at me, most wouldn't take notice. I guess it just demonstrates how much I have yet to lose. I am 1/3 of the way to my goal. I doubt I can keep up this pace but I am pretty happy with being this far along in just three weeks! So the good news outweighs (pun intended) the bad news.
Starting Weight: 238
Goal Weight: 218
Current Weight: 227
Recap: Starting camp gladiator next week, I am down another 3 lbs.
Starting Weight: 138.8
Goal Weight: 122.0
Current Weight: 118.8
Recap: I rewarded myself with a Pandora bracelet and horse charm bead. My plan is to reward myself with a new charm or bead for every 12 weeks that I successfully maintain my goal weight range. My running workouts have been GREAT this week! I also finally went sub 20% on my body fat percentage. In addition to maintaining my weight, I'm consciously working to build muscle and reduce body fat...not a lot...just a little more. Seeing my running paces back down to what I feel is a respectable level is a strong motivator to keep me on track...figuratively and literally!
