Big drop this week ... thank you ADF!

Oh this is clearly working for me. This week even better than last week! I am so pleased, I saw two new low weights this week. Friday I was 76.8 kg (169.32 lb). And today? Well let's just jump right to this week's results.

This morning I weighed 76.2 kg (167.99 lb) which is a loss of 2.5 kg (5.51 lb) from last week, bringing my new total loss to 54.1 kg (119.27 lb). Yes that's 5-1/2 pounds gone this week, and given where I am in my cycle I should be gaining this week! So I have just 8 kg (18 lb) to go to reach my goal.  I am thrilled.

We even went out to lunch last Saturday and out to dinner Friday night with family. I made the lowest carb choices from the menu both times, swapped hot chips (thick cut fries) for steamed veggies, and thoroughly enjoyed delicious meals.

The day after a fast I sometimes have a protein shake or small can of flavoured tuna for breakfast but often don't eat until lunch time because I'm just not hungry. So rather than eating more on feast days as some tend to do when they first start fasting, I'm generally eating less on feast days than I did before I started ADF and it's always low carb. I think you adjust, you learn to recognise when you are truly hungry as opposed to when you just feel like eating. If I am truly hungry, I eat. In fact I keep a can of tuna and an Atkins bar with me even on fast days in case I really do get hungry but I haven't needed them yet.

I'm 43% completed with Milestone 11 of 12 in Happy Scale, the app that smooths out your daily fluctuations to show your overall trend or true weight and as you can see below after weeks stalling and then starting to drift back up, since I started ADF it's a smooth drop back down. Needless to say I will continue what I'm doing. I'm loving ADF!

As for exercise? Well I haven't run for a week or so, but do get in walks at least once a day, and meet or exceed my 10,000 steps goal nearly every day. I may still run once a week or so just so I don't lose my endurance but most of the reading I'm doing these days recommends low intensity exercise over jogging as a better tool for weight loss. So far so good. Have a great weekend guys!

Down 52.4 kg (115.52 lb) ... the stall is truly history!

First, a weigh-in ... this morning I got a new low of 77.9 kg (171.74 lb)! That is down 1.1 kg (2.43 lb) from my last update, and that's after a night out with friends including dinner at the club. All around me there was pizza, chicken parmesan drenched in cheese, hot chips (plank fries), bruschetta and other appetisers. I very much enjoyed my grilled rump steak with salad and steamed veggies. Yum!

That brings my total loss to 52.4 kg (115.52 lb)! I am so happy to be moving again I feel like I'm walking on cloud nine. I've not only completed Milestone 10 on the Happy Scale app ... I'm 10% into Milestone 11 (of 12). The finish line is within sight!

I'm moving my fast days to Tuesday & Saturday this week. I'd rather be eating on Sunday since I usually do my grocery shopping and cook a big meal to have lunch leftovers through the week, so I'd rather fast on Saturday.

As for exercise ... I've completed my second round of C25K but this time I was 25 pounds lighter and completed it in 8 weeks instead of the 12 it took me the first time. Having the treadmill was great, I didn't miss a day due to weather and I could ensure a constant pace. I can watch scenic run videos, or my favourite music videos to help the time pass more quickly. I love that!

So now I'm trying to decide what my next goal should be ... I may run for half an hour but it's not 5k for me. It's more like 4k. I can run 8 to 10 minutes at 8 kph but for 20-30 minutes I tend to run 7.6 kph. So where should I focus next?
  • I could continue to run 30 minutes for a while trying to increase speed,
  • I could try the programs on the treadmill (speed and incline intervals), or
  • I could not worry about my speed and just build my endurance, possibly moving up to the 10k trainer to do longer runs.
I'm not sure yet but I may just alternate the first two options for a week or two and see how we go.

Definitely still doing Callanetics on the days between running and I can both see and feel my body changing. Hubby feels it too ... he can't keep his hands off me! Don't worry, I'm not going to over share here, lol. I'm just saying it's nice to drift off to sleep while someone gives you a relaxing massage, and he'll stop and caress my arms, hips, waist, thigh or backside and say how much smaller, tighter or firmer I'm getting. Between running and Callanetics I am seeing and feeling amazing changes in my body and I love it. My new jeans are getting loose!

Well, off to break the fast ... I'll check in again soon.

I'm no longer obese! At least, not today!

I didn't update my weight over the weekend because TOM wasn't done with me yet - I wanted to wait for my drop. But after yesterday's fast, I've had a nice one. So maybe I should do my official weigh-ins on Monday now since Sunday is a fasting day. In any case, last Monday I was 79.8 kg (175.93 lb) and today I am 79.0 kg (174.17 lb). So that's a loss of .8 kg (1.76 lb). That makes my total loss 51.3 kg or 113.1 lb.

But what I'm really excited about is my BMI - if you look at my ticker up there you'll note that it's 29.9 today. Under 30. That means, my friends, that I am no longer obese! I am just overweight! HOORAY - I want to shout it from the rooftops.

I gotta rush off to work but I'll check in again soon. Just had to share the news! :)

I did it! I've reached 50 kg (110 lb) GONE!!

Another week spent tracking everything I ate and every workout, and I'm pleased to say I have finally hit my Milestone - 50kg GONE as of this morning, or 110 pounds. It feels amazing! This has been a long time coming. Those of you who have been following my journey from the start will know that up until August I was dropping steadily week after week. But for the last four months it's been slow going, two steps forward, one step back, etc. So it feels really good to finally pass 50 kg.  I've stayed mostly Phase 1, meaning I do have occasional tomatoes or a bit of pumpkin which are Phase 2 foods, and made it a point to ensure I'm drinking 3L of water on average every day.  And I'm getting in a workout every day as well.  I now have just 12.2 kg (26.9 lb) to go to reach goal.

I'm loving my new walking route, it takes about an hour all up, and there is a steady 23 minutes minimum of incline on this walk, depending how far I go. Most of it isn't too steep, but it is constant. If I take the full route it's an hour and a half, but usually I have a turnaround point that makes it a one hour route. The turnaround point is just a short ways past this amazing, massive tree that I simply must show you. Here's a panoramic shot my husband took today - this baby is massive and has clearly been there for a century or so. It's gorgeous! Click to view it full size.

Anyway, that 23 minute incline portion I was doing walk/run intervals on the way back down. Well Friday I decided to just go as long as I could, and ran the entire length back. It took 12 minutes, and I felt great afterwards. It's been months since I was running for 30 minutes three times a week, and I'm not sure that I want to return to that entirely, but I do like how it feels to run for more than a few minutes. So I think I'm going to keep doing this for the coming week and then maybe try going further before running back to increase it to maybe 20 minutes of running.  We'll see.

Having hit my next milestone before Christmas feels wonderful, so now I've just got to be really careful during the next couple of weeks so I can stay here. The only indulgences I plan to have on Christmas day would be some nuts and maybe an Atkins caramel nut chew bar. A little indulgence on Christmas isn't a problem - but indulging for weeks before and after Christmas I can't do.

I'm still finding it difficult to get in two strength training AND two Callanetics during the week in addition to all the cardio, and I really enjoy both of those workouts so I don't want to give either one up. I may try doing both of them on the same day - they are both muscle workouts, just of very different types. I could do one right after the other, or just do the strength training after work and save the Callanetics for later in the evening. I've always said I find it relaxing and almost meditative, though a great workout, so that might work. I'll check in and let you know how I go.

Anyway, off to enjoy what's left of the weekend while I can. You can find my meals for last week below (click to enlarge). Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Another drop! Is the stall finally over?

Lord I hope so. This morning I saw 80.8 kg (178.13 lb) on the scale which is a loss of 1.3 kg (2.87 lb) from last week and brings my total to 49.5 kg (109.13 lb)! OMG the 50 kg milestone is so close ... then I'll be looking forward to getting out of the obese category next. That will be about the time I complete Milestone 10 of 12 in the Happy Scale app ... so there is nothing stopping me from getting to goal, despite the slow progress these last three months.

Every month or so I try on these clothes in the back of the closet. When my mom passed in 2006 her husband asked if there was anything I wanted from her wardrobe before he donated it to her favorite charity. I chose some comfy casual PJs that don't really look like PJs ... I remember her lounging around the house in them so they seemed very familiar. There was an oversized comfy Green Bay Packer sweatshirt (she was a huge fan) and three pair of jean shorts.

Other than the sweatshirt there was nothing that actually fit me at the time. But I loved those shorts. One pair was slightly larger than the other two but all are marked size 14. I think two are Liz Claiborne. Anyway in recent months I've been trying on that larger pair. Last time I could get them on but not comfortably and so I haven't tried again for a few weeks. Well today I have them on, snug but comfortable. Size 14. Me. Oh, and with them? A shirt I bought years ago in a size that was too small as incentive to lose weight and fit in it. Last time I tried it on it was also still too tight. Not today baby! It goes great with my new shorts! I'm feeling fabulous today.

Others have opinions on my goal weight!

My weight had gone up after last weekend rather suddenly, but I am back down most of that ... now I know that was monthly water weight. There's been no further drop just yet; hopefully in another couple days. I have got in lots of workouts, including two big walks about an hour and 20 minutes each, plus some WATP with jogging as my warmup before strength training. I plan to stay strict Phase 1 for as long as it takes to get well into the 70s ... at 79 kilos (about 174 pounds) I'll officially be overweight rather than obese, which would be lovely. That'll be my next big Milestone.

I've had interesting reactions from others when I talk about my goal weight. I'm just barely 5'4" tall and set my initial goal for 68 kg (150 lbs) ... still overweight but it seemed so far off at the time that I thought it a reasonable goal, and I'll be so much healthier there than I was at 130 kg (287 lbs). The charts would probably want me closer to 58 kg (128 lbs) or even less, but really it's going to be about where I not only feel best but can comfortably maintain. You would be surprised how often people seem surprised that I'm not happy where I am. They often tell me I don't need to lose any more. The interesting part is those who are trim, fit and healthy weights themselves tend to think my goal is reasonable, while those who are overweight themselves (not necessarily a lot) tend to think I have lost enough now. I can't decide if it's because:
  • they are so used to seeing me much larger that I seem a normal weight now, or
  • most people are overweight so that seems normal now, or
  • on a subconscious level they don't want me to weigh less than they do.
It may be a bit of each. I wonder if they think my saying I need to lose weight implies that they do, too. I didn't think much about it at first but there have been a lot of similar reactions lately when I say I have at least 15 kg (33 lbs) to go. They think I'm fine where I am.

Those of you at goal, did you experience this as you were in the latter part of your weight loss? Just curious.

Down 102.96 lb in One Year

I started Dr Poon on Monday, 19th August, 2013 so I'm counting today, Monday, 18th August, 2014, as the one year mark. Might as well, I've done my weigh-in today, last week being a write-off due to monthly weight gain and having been sick since Thursday. I'm still sick, recovering from a sinus and upper respiratory infection, but slowly improving. So where am I at one year on?

Well today I weighed in at 83.6 kg (184.31 lb) which is down 0.6 kg (1.32 lb) from last week, and that brings my total for the year to 46.7 kg (102.96 lb) gone. Can't be unhappy with that!

Also, it was a long time crossing this marker, but I have finally surpassed Milestone 9 of 12 in the Happy Scale app, which now predicts I'll cross the finish line in January 2015. Let's hope so, that finish line fluctuates with each weigh-in, so it will depend on whether I continue to drop steadily or slow down closer to goal ... that happens to many people, so time will tell. My goal was  68 kg or 150 lbs, so that means I have only 15.6 kg or 34.3 lbs to go.

And where am I at with the 30 Day Shred? Well getting sick couldn't have come at a worse time, and yesterday was the worst day yet in that regard. I was supposed to be starting Level 3, and hadn't missed a day yet despite being sick. Hubby felt I should really give it a miss yesterday and I agreed, but the thought of missing a day drove me nuts. I put the video on just to watch Level 3 and see what I was going to be in for. By the time it was over I was getting changed, moving the coffee table, and restarting the video. I did it, I started Level 3. Like every other time I worked out when sick, I felt better during, and for at least an hour or so after showering, so I am glad I did it. It was my first time at this level so I followed the beginner modifications for everything, just to take it easy, but I did it. Only nine more to go and I will be done with the 30 Day Shred! :)

Milestone update ...

I haven't mentioned the Milestones in the Happy Scale app recently but I have passed Milestone 7 of 12 and am 10% into Milestone 8. I had entered 130 pounds as the goal when I set up the app, but decided 150 sounded more attainable when I started Dr Poon so that's what my tracker shows. I just realised I can switch the goal at any time, so I'm thinking I should have the same goal everywhere.

So the first shot below shows me 10% into Milestone 8 of the 130 pound goal, and then I switched the goal to 150 pounds, and I'm already 13% into Milestone 9 of 12! The predicted finish line is December.

My back is a bit better but still hurts sometimes, especially if I forget about it and bend to reach something or pick something up. I really want to run tomorrow so I hope it's alright. But with it getting dark earlier I am going to try a different location closer to work as I waste nearly 20 minutes driving to my current place. I have never tried this path yet but I should be able to get there in five minutes or so. I'm all packed and ready to go after work, and if I find my back is bothering me then I can just make it a nice walk and get to know the area. There's likely to be more people around but hopefully I like it there. Wish me luck!

Down 81.35 lb 7-1/2 months! And jogging ...

Yup, after holding steady last week due to TOM, I got a nice drop this week! There were fluctuations as expected during the week, had a drop early then went back up again, etc. but this morning I have fabulous numbers to report!

I weighed in at 93.4 kg (205.91 lb), which is a loss of 1.8 kg (3.97 lb) from last week. That brings my total loss to 36.9 kg (81.35 lb).

I didn't mention passing Milestone 6 in Happy Scale at the end of March! You may recall I entered 130 as my goal in Happy Scale, whereas it's 150 in my ticker. So being on Milestone 7 is awesome ... I'm 9% done with it, too! To complete it I need to get to 195.5 lbs, which it estimates will take 5-7 weeks.

I've been hoping to pass hubby these last few weeks ... he was 95-96kg for a while there, but each week I would think this is it, he would drop! He's not eating particularly healthy, but he has been walking more. So I thought once again this week was it. He came in at 93.2! So just 200g separates us. Surely next week will be the week! Lol

Speaking of next week ... time to increase jogging intervals again. This week was alternating 1:30 and 3:00 jogging (equal time walking afterwards). Three minutes was hard! By Friday it was a little easier. Only a little, mind you. But next week it's jog 3 min (walk 90 sec), then jog 5 min (walk 2.5 min). Am I ready for that?! Part of me wants to repeat this week, and part of me says you'll never know what you're capable of if you don't try! I don't want to sell myself short just cuz I think I can't do it. But 3 minutes is still hard! I don't know yet. I was very lucky with the rain again last week, with it stopping pretty much when I needed it to. Will I be so lucky next week? Who knows.

I do think part of what made it a little easier Friday was I put on some music to run to. That gave me something else to focus on, and the C25K app interrupts the music to give your cues. But twice now when using music and Sports Tracker (with or without C25K) the apps quit on me. That sucks because you have to take the time to set it up again and get back to where you were in running, and you lose your Sports Tracker stats entirely. I'm going to try with my work phone next time, as maybe it's just an issue with my phone.

Clocks went back an hour last night so I'm trying to adjust my schedule accordingly. It'll start getting darker after work soon, so I may have to consider running in the morning at some point. Anyway, that's it for today. Have a great weekend!

4 pound drop?! That makes up for last week!

Oh yeah, this sure makes up for the gain I had last week. My first gain on this plan was followed quickly by a drop the next day that already brought me below the previous week total, and I've held steady throughout the week at 101.9 kg so I was thinking I'd be lucky and see another .2 or so. Nope ... 101.1! I'll give you a screenshot off my spreadsheet so you can see the stats for yourself.

Yeah, that's 1.8 kg down this week, or just about 4 pounds. Wow! Definitely feeling better than I was last week. And I keep inching closer to the halfway mark, which will be very exciting.

There are a few milestones fast approaching. The 30 kilos lost mark is just around the corner ... and right after that getting below 100 kg will be nice. Another 2.9 pounds and I'll have completed Milestone 5 on Happy Scale, which is significant for a reason I'll share next. And of course hitting the half way point on my weight loss goal of reaching 68 kg (150 pounds).

Ok so why is the Happy Scale milestone significant? Well it initially predicted I'd reach goal this August, and as the initial weight loss slowed down that changed to September, October, November, December and even next January. Now it says December again. I checked the settings I had originally entered, and as you know my goal weight is 150 pounds though charts would probably say 130 is right for me. Well I had used 130 as my goal in Happy Scale! So I'm nearly done with Milestone 5 of reaching 130 pounds! Now despite Happy Scales predicting I'll get there around the end of the year, I know the closer I get to goal, the slower the weight loss will get. I'm just happy to know that I'm actually further along than I thought in those milestones based on my current goal of 150 pounds. :)

I'm just under 5'4" tall so 125-130 is probably a better range for me but I'll worry about that as I get closer to goal. For now, I'm so pleased!

Off to get in a walk before I go donate blood today. Have a great weekend!

Milestone 4 completed!

So you may recall I use the Happy Scale application on my iPad, and you can read my first milestone post about that for more info. I used it to split my journey into 12 milestones, and today I've just completed milestone 4!  And I do mean JUST -- I needed to hit 234.8 to reach it and I'm 234.79 today! So on to this week's weigh-in.

I was fluctuating a bit Friday and Saturday, going up just a little from the new low I'd hit Wednesday, but today I'm back down again. I weighed in at 106.5 kg (234.79 lb) which is a loss of just one kilo (2.2 lb) from last week, which brings my total loss to 23.8 kg (52.47 lb).

I'm happy ... it's nearly Christmas and I'm losing weight; what's not to be happy about? Friday night I met up with a couple of girlfriends and we had dinner at a lovely restaurant - I had filet mignon and you could choose between chips (thick fries) and salad, mashed potatoes or vegetables. I got both the salad and vegetables, which consisted of some pan-fried carrot and zucchini and a small salad with a vinaigrette dressing.  The meat was fattier than I would normally have and there may have been a bit more sodium, so maybe that's why I was up a bit yesterday, but it was very good, cooked with a lot of mushrooms and wrapped in a slice of bacon.

Through the first few months of my journey, Happy Scale predicted I would reach my goal weight next August.  As the rate of loss slowed down a bit, that eventually changed to September, where it's stayed for a while.  Today, on finishing milestone 4, however - it now says October. Hmm.  Oh well ... it would be lovely for the weight to drop off at a fast pace through the entire journey, wouldn't it? I suspect that will change again as I get nearer my goal, as it will probably slow down again.  Fast would be nice, but a consistent loss every single week since day one is nothing to complain about.

My workout for the last three days in a row has been walking, and since I'm off work through the holidays I'll either walk or do some video workouts when I can fit them in this week. We've got family coming to visit for a few days, so there will be meals away from home this week (though I plan to bring some Fauxtato Salad along to ensure I've got a side I can eat with whatever meat they'll be grilling).

I wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday season. :)

50 Pounds Gone after 17 weeks!

OMG ... I really thought I'd have to wait 'til next week for this announcement, I mean ... I needed to lose over 3.26 pounds to get there this week ... and I did!

So the official stats are 107.5 kg (237.0 lb) this morning. That's a loss of 1.6 kg (3.53 lb) since last week, of which 1 kg (2.2 lb) was FAT.  It's a total loss of 22.8 kg (50.27 lb) in just 17 weeks! I may be in Australia now, but I'm a small town Wisconsin gal who still thinks in pounds, so this 50 pounds means a lot to me. I am over 1/3 of the way to my goal and for the first time ever I have no doubt I will get there. Maybe within a year, maybe not, but I will get there!

Yesterday hubby really wanted to go out to lunch. Since I'd managed to do that on our holiday in Melbourne without any adverse effects, I figured I'd be ok, but being the day before my official weigh-in for the week I was a bit worried. I asked him to pick a place where I could get grilled steak or chicken and veggies, and he chose this award winning restaurant up in the mountain we'd never been to before. It was a short drive and a lovely location, but being 'award winning' meant expensive, and while they had plenty of meats that would suit they all came with thick cut chips or creamy potato sides rather than veggies or salad. You had to order at the counter so I ordered him the chicken schnitzel and asked if I could have the filet mignon but swap out the potatoes for steamed vegetables as I was on a low carb diet. They said they don't have any vegetables so they can't swap, but I could just not eat them or leave them off. It would still have been a $30 lunch and I could only eat the meat? She said, "maybe the porterhouse ... oh wait, that comes with potatoes too."

Then she said, "Oh, there's a vegetarian dish here that might work!" I looked at it and said it had rice in it. She said, "but it's brown rice!" I said "I think you'll find there are carbs in brown rice, too. What about this deconstructed Caesar salad, can I assume the dressing is on the side since it's deconstructed?" She said no, it's already mixed in. At this point I was that frustrated I didn't even care anymore, I mean how hard would it be to make me a salad and leave off the damned dressing? But instead I just said to order his meal and I'd have nothing, thanks.

When I got back to the table hubby was upset because he felt I should have just said we'd go somewhere else, but he was starving, we were already here, and he'd never eaten here before, so I wanted him to try it. Besides, we'd have to try to think of another suitable place, and I had leftovers at home I could eat ... with weigh-in coming the next morning, I really preferred that. Turns out it was probably a good choice for me, and he really enjoyed his lunch so it worked out great. But I was amazed at finding a restaurant that was unwilling to even TRY to work with me! I mean you have salad vegetables, but you wouldn't even swap potatoes for a plain salad? Unbelievable.

Well I'm off to grocery shop for the week ... not much else to do on this rainy day. Hope you're all enjoying your weekend.

41.23 lb Down and passed Milestone 3

Flew past it, actually! Weighed in this morning at 111.6 kg (246.04 lb). That is down 1.5 kg (3.31 lb) from last week, and 18.7 kg (41.23 lb) to date! Woo Hoo!

When I entered that on Happy Scale I noticed I was not only passed Milestone 3, but already 15% into Milestone 4, which is to reach 234.8 pounds. Happy Scale predicts I will get there in 4-5 weeks.

Well, gotta get on the road again, long drive ahead.

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Wow! How did I miss this?

When I reported my weekend weigh-in I missed a very important figure ... I really don't know how I missed this, it stands out so much now on my weight log. My goal weight is 150 pounds. While the charts would probably say I should weigh 125-130 pounds, given I'm not quite 5'4", I chose a goal of 150 as a realistic weight for me to aim for. Who knows how I'll feel once that number draws nearer, but that's my goal.

So when I dropped below 250 pounds finally, that meant I now had less than 100 pounds to go! How on earth I missed that I don't know, but being as I saw another drop this morning (112.8 kg / 248.68 pounds) I noticed it now! I'm so used to seeing 100+ pounds to go, I must say that 98.77 pounds left looked pretty darned good. Yes, there's still a ways to go but with close to 40 pounds gone (38.58) and a strong determination to stay the course, I am we'll and truly on my way.

I've passed my 2nd Milestone!

You may recall the Happy Scales app I've used to split my journey into 12 milestones ... well Today I passed Milestone number 2 already!

At 118.2 kg (260.59 lb) I've surpassed my 2nd milestone and am 4% into my third. My next goal is 247.9 pounds, and Happy Scale predicts it will take me 3-5 weeks to get there. Here's hoping for three!

Passed my first Milestone already!

I have an app on the iPad I installed before I started this journey, so the other day when I updated it to reflect my 15 pound weight loss in just three weeks, I was delighted to see I'd already reached the first of twelve milestones. It's called Happy Scale and it here's the description from their website: "Your weight naturally jumps up and down by pounds every day. When you're tracking fat loss, which is just a few ounces daily, these fluctuations are maddening. Happy Scale smooths out your daily scale weights to predict your true weight." So instead of seeing the fluctuations, it smooths out the graph, but you can choose to see the actual weight which appears as the dot points connected to the graph line.

I especially like the milestones feature. I had set it to divide my weight loss into 12 segments, because I hoped to be down by a hundred pounds within a year. I really need to drop 150, but I'll be happy to get 100 off, trust me. So I double checked the stats I had entered and I actually set the ideal weight range at 125-135 pounds. So I'm 1/12th of the way to that goal, not just 100 pounds. I think that's pretty good for three weeks.

Oh, and it also predicts when you'll reach your goal. Mine says March 2014! Now that's based on my progress so far, and I have no doubt that will slow down, so March is optimistic but I'll be interested to see how things go. I especially hope to see that graph line continue its downward trend. :)
