What did you lose this week?

This thread is a spinoff of the obesity thread.

It’s purpose is for all those who are fighting the battle of the bulge to be able to post their weekly weight loss and be held accountable and for us to provide encouragement to each other.

It is open to anyone who wants to join out little (no pun intended) group.

I have lost 3 lbs this week for 37 total on my new nutrition plan. I’ll let everyone know when I am at my goal.


Good for you! Keep at it! I gained a pound over the last two weeks! Yes, I’m happy about that since I’m weight lifting and wanted to gain muscle.


Count me in. I haven’t been keeping track (the scales broken), but I need to lose about 10 lbs or get back into a size 8 pants, whichever comes first. I’ve just started exercising again, so it’ll probably be at least a couple of weeks before I see any results.

Good luck everybody!

I was up 3 last week and down 2 this week… going for 10

We are, each of us angels with only one wing;
and we can only fly by
embracing one another

Well, I don’t have a scale, but here are the stats I’m working on:

  • three and a half weeks without a Coke (of the cola variety, silly). Caffeine withdrawal was a bitch, but now I only had the occasional craving.

  • I walked for at least half an hour three times last week, but only once this week (bad phouka, bad phouka).

“Damn, it’d be like two days at Disneyland without the kids!” - Comment by a male friend the first time he saw a picture of me and my breasts.

Well, I haven’t been keeping a weekly tab on it, but I’ve lost 15 lbs since the first of the month. WOO HOO!

Plunging like stones from a slingshot on Mars.

sorry havent lost anything but my mind lately

Me?? an asshole?? You better believe it!

I’ve lost three pounds this week, but that’s because I haven’t eaten significantly in a couple of days. (I feel like I’m getting the flu, and the thought of food is making me nauseous.)

Well in the last 2 months i lost 15 lbs!

What is this… everyone I know (including me) is trying to lose weight.

15 down since 9/7. I’m trying for another 12 pounds, or until those size 10’s that barely zip up fit me loosely.

My Fatboy Slim CD (I think my brother stole it) and 3 pounds…whoo hoo…Of course, I can’t walk very well because I did squats (I walk like a old man and my face looks like I am holding back a serious need to go to the bathroom)

A weight lifting tip for Byz:

If it’s heavy enough to make you grunt and sweat, PUT IT DOWN!

No pain, no hurt.


This space for rent.

AuraSeer: If you really think that you are coming down with the flu, get thee to a medical practitioner! I have had “the flu”, I mean the real thing, and it is not to be taken lightly. Most of the time when people talk of having “a slight case of the flu” or the “flu bug” or “three day flu”, they are talking about something that is not the flu! (It is usually some form of diagreement with something eaten) The honest-to-God-flu is no fun!

Well, I lost 27 lbs. in 6 weeks, but 9.5 of it was baby. I need to keep going to lose the rest of the pregnancy weight and the 15 pounds I started putting on when I hit 35. Count me in.

The last remnants of my sanity.

I’m in…like I said in the “obesity” thread, I’ve lost 15 pounds so far, and need to lose 100 more. Managed to get back into walking regularly after having a BAD cold last week. Just hoping I can keep it up this weekend…going on vacation for three days.

You don’t want me to sweat and grunt? Well, I guess it would depend on what I’m doing! I have a feeling I could pick you up and twirl you over my head without even reaching my target heart rate! :o


Okay. Colour me admonished.

I often worry about my weight, because I definitley don’t get enough exercise. I try to walk every night for about an hour, but sometimes I fall off of the wagon.
I check the scale every morning.
I was wondering what the proper weight for a 6 foot guy is?
I get confused about that, and it makes me feel big and fat.


StrTrkr777: I believe we all know what you lost this week… :wink:

Yer pal,
