Ready for Summer challenge #4

Goals for week 3
Weight: I’d like next week to show my weight at 255lbs. That’s a 5 lbs loss for a week, but remember, I’m already down a few from my last weigh in! Aim high!! I did it!! I lost 6.6 lbs. That puts me in a new category. I am no longer morbidly obese, just plain old obese now! (I hate that word!)
NSV: I’m going to try on that size 20 pair of jeans I have again. Also, I’d like to set up my sewing machine and start sewing again. Nope, the jeans don’t fit. YET! That’s ok, it will happen! And the sewing machine… nope! Maybe next week!
Exercise: C25K week 2 still needs to be done. Also on alternate days I’d like to do the 30 day shred. I want at least 5 days of exercise crossed off this week! No C25K training this week due to rain – muddy roads – and then mosquitoes. I just focused on getting some workouts done at home and did 5/7!

Nutrition: This one is going to be hard! I’ve decided to go low-carb for 2 weeks. I’ll be avoiding flour and sugar and starchy foods. Wish me luck!! Not as hard as I thought. I’ve just finished 7 days of low-carbing and I guess once I made the decision, I could stick to it. Going for week 2 now!

Mini-Challenge: Visit every challenge participant. I think I got around 20 or 25. That’s a lot of challengers! Sometimes I decided to do my workout instead. J
Ready for Summer Challenge, beginning weight


Now for the week 4 goals:
Weight: I’m hoping for a 2 lb loss this week.
Exercise: Same as last week, 5 days out of 7. And if the mosquitoes retreat, I’ll go back to the C25K training.
Nutrition: Same as last week. Low carb. Avoid sugar, flour, starch!
NSV: Same pants! And same sewing machine! AND the boys closet needs cleaning and decluttering!
Hasta la próxima! Have a great week, and make good choices!


  1. YAY! I'm glad you're leaving Morbily Obese land and heading for healthier waters! You ROCKED this week. I dare you to do it again. Double dog dare.

  2. Wow, great loss. Good luck with week 4 too. :)

  3. Yeah!!! Great weight loss!!!!!!!!!!! Glad you were able toh it your nutrition goals. That's awesome. I'm a fare weather runner myself, so I totally understand not running due to annoying conditions. You are awesome!!

  4. Holy, Mother-of-Pearl. 6.6 lbs?! You are my new hero!

    Good luck this week!

  5. SOunds like you're right on track! I'm also trying to decrease/eliminate sugar, flour and starchy foods. I'm not psyched about it, but I'm happy to share notes with others on the same route. Let me know if you come across any great recipes or ideas, and I'll do the same for you.

    Have another fabulous week!

  6. WOW, what a loss you had! That is just amazing!

  7. Wow, great loss. It is amazing how our eating can change if we really set our minds to it.

  8. What a huge, huge loss. WOW!!! This is one of the nicer features of cutting back on starches and sugars--a big whoosh of a lot of retained fluid. It's so motivating! Keep at it. Lots of veggies and good protein. You need to fuel all that exercise!

    No longer morbidly obese. I am so happy for you. This is important!!! How nice is that? Right? Right?! I made that milestone Nov of 2010 (at 245.2 lbs). I guess you're taller than I am. :D

    Milestones are so worth celebrating. girl, you got your mojo going.

    Note:Um, not crazy about the flavor of the Y.Mate..but it's so healthful, I'm gonna drink it. tHANKS AGAiN. I love healthful foods/beverages. New and old. God bless...

  9. Good luck reaching your goals this week. It's always hard for me to get a loss after I've had a big one the week before, so I'm really pushing for you to succeed. I'll be back to see how you did!

  10. Congratulations on moving into a NEW category! Wow! That is a GREAT feeling. Have a good rest of the week! Michele

  11. Good job on getting your workouts in and your nutrition for week 3! Hope week 4 has been good for you :)
