Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Week 1- Official Weigh-In Challenge Results

Week 1- Official Weigh-In Challenge Results

We had some beautiful weather here in Sunny Dallas this past week so I was able to get a few walks in.  Also, Macy's big sale didn't hurt either so much more walking around!  I also did my good deed for the week by finding a lost dog on one of our walks, so my dog, Oscar, and I walked that dog back home... however, the dog kept running the opposite way down the street, so I also got some running in.

With that, here are my weekly results:
Last week's weigh-in was 151.
This week's weigh-in is 148.8.
Lost 2.2 pounds!!

Total lost since giving birth 7 weeks ago is 32.2 lbs.  YEAH!

Ok, people!!  Everyone you agreed last week, let's see your numbers.  Remember, you don't have to post your actual weight, just the amount you lost if that's all you want to be held accountable for.

Anyone else want to join?  We're trying to see who can lose 20 pounds first!  Here's the first blog about it.

Hi Jeff, 2 pounds in one week is great!  I woke up this morning and felt lighter and my sweats fit differently all week.  You can stop at 10 pounds, but I'll be continueing from there!

Weighed in at 247.  This is my starting point.  Uh...baby weight???  Not applicable in my case! ;-)

Can I join you? I didn't lose anything last week and have a lot more than 20 pounds to go, but I'd like to win! I have a 4mth old sleeping in his little bed (I've lost all his baby weight) and a 2 year old napping in the other room (I'm still working on his weight!)... Thanks! Let me know what to do - besides losing weight.

Kent, some guys can have baby weight... some gain as their wives gain.  Good starting point.

Lindsey, Yes, you may join!  Not much to do except lose the weight and post your results.  There is no test to pass or anything... lol!

Thanks Donna!

Donna - I just want to congratulate you --- I do not need to lose weight so I cannot join in w/you guys on the weigh in part.

Congrats on the weight drop. This is not an easy thing to do.
Posted by Rick Marnon, Howell Real Estate Agent (The Michigan Group) over 10 years ago

Now, where is everyone else who agreed to weigh in ??  Chicken??

My goal now is to maintain my weight.  I made my goal last year and am now doing the hard part; keeping it off.
Posted by Randy Prothero, Hawaii REALTOR, (808) 384-5645 (eXp Realty) over 10 years ago
Randy, That's great!  Congrats and definitely keep it off!

Hi Donna!  WOW, you're kickin' it into gear!  I took the challenge and here's the skinny (pun intended) - Initial weigh in was 245.  With a combination of bike riding, watching my intake (lowering my beer consumption), and some help from a friend who is a hypnotherapist (almost like voo-doo magic), I'm down to 240.  They say it's easier for guys, but I don't agree.  Keep going, you're doing great!  Peace!  We never discussed the prize. . .what should we do?
Posted by Jem Woods, Marble Falls TX Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty - Marble Falls, TX) over 10 years ago
Jem, 5 pounds in one week?  That's great!  Congrats!  I'm not sure about the prize.  The prize might just be that you're first to head to the mall to get a new outfit for yourself and your new you!

I'll keep my weight to myself. I don't like to weigh in only because I start to pay too much attention to my weight rather than to how much better I feel physically and mentally.
Posted by Rick Marnon, Howell Real Estate Agent (The Michigan Group) over 10 years ago
Donna, I am in. Lost 3 lbs since Jan 1. On my way to 30lb loss. Will update and track you. Good luck.
Posted by Larry Kueser (Keller Williams Realty Diamond Partners Inc) over 10 years ago

Sounds fun, count me in.  I am gyming tonight so I will post a blog about joining the challenge and will include my numbers (scary).

Posted by Mike Cole, Your Texas Realtor (Keller Williams) over 10 years ago

Rick, not a problem.  You can join in by letting us know each week what you did to better yourself and how you feel about it.  I also gauge success by how my cloths fit, not just a number.

Larry, Congrats!  All you guys are going to kick my buttocks!

Mike, I can't wait to see your numbers and success as well.

More guys than gals in this challenge.  Very interesting!

Way to go girl! And a very belated CONGRATULATIONS  on your beautiful little girl! I'm just now swinging back into business. I'd love to lose some weight along with you! Isn't it cool to see the pounds DROP off after having the baby? I gained 35 lbs and have lost all but 5. My body sure doens't look the same as it did at this weight, but the weight is gone. Glad to be back on AR!

Donna,

I posted my starting numbers in my blog. Read it here.  (is that legal? to include a link in my comment to your blog?  If not, tell me and I will repost with out it.)

Posted by Mike Cole, Your Texas Realtor (Keller Williams) over 10 years ago

Mike, yes, it's ok to post a link to your blog only because it relates.  It's not ok for people to do it when they're just trying to get traffic to their blog and it's completely off topic.  Welcome to the challenge.

Kim, Thanks!  Congrats on losing the 30 already.  It's always those last few that are the hardest.  I try on my different pants every 2-3 days to see how my body has changed shapes.  I now have about 4 pairs of pants that fit instead of just 1!

Hi Donna,

I am in.  I met with Ardell on Friday and she said she was starting Nutri-Systems on Sunday and I said I will change my eating habits to include:  eating smaller portions, eating more fruit and vegetables and exercising more.  I started Saturday.  Just tried to find the scale but it got moved after their was a flood in the basement.

Week 3 results are posted HERE!
Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - TexasRealEstateMediationServices.com) over 10 years ago

Hi Donna,

 I am also at a challenging point. I started the Naturally Slim Healthy Lifestyles program at the first of September. During the last 4 months of the year, I lost a total of 50 pounds. I have to admit that 14 of those pounds came off during the week of Thanksgiving when I had pneumonia, but the other 36 pounds were all me.

However, I have been maintaining at best since Christmas. I hope this weekly weigh-in will help!

 Starting weight on 12/31 - 238

Week one (1/7) 239
