WLB WEEK 1 WEIGH IN

High Weight: 209
Height: 5'9"
Current Weight: 205.5
Loss/Gain: -4 lbs WOOHOO!!

I struggled to get into the groove this week, but got serious on Thursday. I've been cutting out a lot of carbs, bad carbs. I'm not depriving myself or cutting back portions, but I know for me, cutting back the carbs stabilizes my insulin and cuts my sugar cravings and eventually my portion size will follow naturally. I've made some high protein, low carb desserts so I still get a sweet treat.

High Weight: 179.4
Height: 5'4"
Current Weight: 179.6
Loss/Gain: +.2 (but likely no real gain because I didn't weigh in first thing this morning & I just ate lunch!) But I haven't done anything to curb diet & did very little exercise wise either. :(

Good job Kara!!! WTG! :)

High Weight: 142
Height: 5'5"
Current Weight: 141
Loss/Gain: -1 lbs

I ran a 10K over the weekend, and was hoping to see more of a change. But I guess I shouldn't because I haven't lost weight at all during the training either. This coming week-10 days is going to be rough with all the house guests/Bennett's birthday/Thanksgiving. My goal until all that is over is to not gain!

Nice job Kara!

Amanda,
You were probably gaining muscle from all that training and running....which will pay off in the long run as muscle is what will burn the fat! GREAT JOB! And how awesome you ran a 5k. If I could run 2 blocks I'd be happy. I was considering doing the Couch potato to 5k training, but I have hypermobile joints and I just can't figure out how to do it without injuring myself.

High Weight: 175 (post baby)
Height: 5'6"
Current Weight: 161
Loss/Gain: 0

I focused on getting healthy, breathing, and returning to normal this week. So, three pilates workouts, too much stress = too many brownies, and no cardio work. I have had almost a week of trouble-free breathing, and I am starting couch to 5K from coolrunning.com this week. I would prefer to lose weight, but not gaining is something of an achievement after eating pretty badly for a few days.
Congrats Kara!

I also struggled to get into it this week also. I have not started my excercise program yet, but I have started portion control and watching what I eat.

I'm going to jump in with you guys next week. I've been sick and just not had the energy to think about what I ate or get my tush to the gym. But, now that I'm feeling better...I'd like to at least not gain anything through these holidays :)
