60 Day Weight Loss Challenge!

edited October 2011 in fitness & sports
Hey guys!

So I'm new to Soompi, but I've been lurking around here, especially in the health/fitness section, for a while. 

So.... story of my life?  I'm a bit chubby.  I'm not exactly fat, but my BMI is getting closer to the overweight category by the minute (yeah, I'm eating as I type this, LOL). 
I used to be really skinny, but I gained a lot of weight in middle school.  Since I'm almost an adult now, I'd really like to lose the extra chubz.  Generally, my weight fluctuates like crazy, so I'm creating this thread just to try to keep me on track.

I'm 115 right now, and I'd love to be 95 - 100 in 2 months time.  That still puts me at a healthy BMI, and it would involve losing about 1.5 - 2.5 pounds per week.


Here are my stats:

Height: 4'11" (I know, midget status)
Starting Weight: 115 pounds (about, I'm not quite sure)
Current Weight: 115
Pounds Lost: 0
Goal Weight: 95 - 100 lbs

So yeah!  The plan is to eat healthily, and exercise as much as possible.  I'll try to update relatively frequently on my current weight (but no pics, I'm too self conscious, LOL). 

If anyone has any tips/advice, I'd be really grateful.  Anyone who wants to join me in (attempting to) lose weight is welcome too!

    Hi! I'd love to join you on this. I was thinking about doing a 60 day challenge for myself earlier..just not posting it. XD
    My stats are:
    Height: 5'4
    HW: 167
    CW: 140
    GW: 120
    Pounds lost already: 27

    I pretty much run ~30-40 minutes everyday on the treadmill. I know quite a bit about healthy lifestyle and food since I've been on this journey for so long..so ask if you have any questions.

    Wow, that's great that you've lost so much weight already. :)

    Is it okay if I ask what you typically eat on a day-to-day basis?  I was thinking of eating oatmeal or cereal and fruit for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and salad, some kind of healthy meat (chicken, turkey, etc.), and fruit for dinner.  It seems a little bland, but I don't know what else is healthy. 

    For exercising, I was going to walk (no stamina, so I can't run, LOL) and do strength-training.  Not like major weights or anything, just crunches and squats and stuff like that.

    Hey!! I would love to join :] I've just recently started to change for a healthier life style, or a life style that is more conscious of what I'm putting in my body!

    Anywho, here are my stats:

    Height: 5'5
    HW: 140
    SW: 135
    CW: 131
    GW: 115

    Since starting I can definitely see a difference, but not a huge difference. I'm a little more focused on toning up as of right now and hopefully the numbers will just start to drop. But yeah ^-^ hopefully with the 60 day challenge I see more changes!

    Sure! I eat mostly fruit, veggies and some kind of lean meat (chicken, fish, etc.) I don't eat that many carbs unless it's before or after a workout. (Your metabolism is faster is faster for the next 30 minutes after working out or something like that)

    Breakfast-1/2 Grapefruit, 2 Egg Whites, Cantaloupe, Light n Fit Yogurt. Or, just oatmeal and grapefruit.
    Lunch-Some kind of sandwich w/ whole wheat bread, turkey, lettuce, tomato, mustard, etc. 
    Dinner-Salad w/ fat free dressing.
    Before running-Bagel w/ banana and peanut butter

    I also have many snacks throughout the day! It's better to eat many small meals than 3 large meals. Sooo, a lot of apples and just fruit in general.

    Also, your plan sounds pretty good! :) Check out undressedskeleton on tumblr if you need more ideas about good weight loss foods. Remember, if you do get a craving for sweets...don't resist them.  You'll just end up binging. Allow yourself "treats" every so often.

    Yeah, I think that weighing in every week sounds like a good plan!

    Staying motivated...well it's different for everyone. 
    1) There are tumblrs like diethoroscopes.tumblr.com
    dude. Tumblr has everything. XD
    It gives you reasons on why to keep at it~
    Also, think of self benefits. How does it change YOU personally?
    && it doesn't help that most of my friends are slim.
    Soooo
    yeah motivation~!
    I also keep a diary of what I eat everyday. That helps a lot.

    I think I've tried one of those methods you mentioned are controversial in the past. It set me back a month or so, and remember. You lose more muscle mass than fat if you use the wrong methods.

    Welcome to our group though~

    Congrats on the weight you've lost so far... but don't do anything too ~controversial~ okay?  85 - 90 pounds seems like so little. :( 

    Just try to be as healthy as possible!  Even though I'm trying to lose weight, I'd rather be a little chubby and healthy, than really skinny and not healthy.

    It does for a little while, but I usually lift pretty light weights.  Also, if you stretch out your muscles a lot after, it doesn't hurt as much. I think you get more used to it after a week or so. :)

    I'm totally jealous of your weight right now. :)  If I were you, I would just do lots of strength training, like dumbbells and crunches and stuff.

    2 pounds isn't too bad, is it?  It could be just water weight, so you probably don't have to worry too much. 
    Good luck though on losing your "blubber", LOL. :)

    Pounds Lost: 13

    I'm joining you guys! Most of the fat on my body is stored in my hips/thigh area, so I look disproportionate...I just want to lose the fat! And of course, live a healthier life. I've stopped drinking pop for a few months now!

    Height: 5'1"
    Starting Weight: 107 lbs
    Current Weight: 107 lbs
    Pounds Lost: 0
    Goal Weight: 100 lbs

    I'm going grocery shopping tomorrow for healthier food! And I'll probably start up my food diary again. It seemed to help a bit the last time I used it. And I'm most likely going to jump rope and go on the treadmill, but I get bored easily. :/

    I'd like to join if you guys don't mind.

    Height: 5'3"
    Starting Weight: 132 lbs
    Current Weight: 130 lbs 
    Pounds Lost: 2
    Goal Weight: 105 lbs **


    ** I'm actually more concerned with losing inches/fat and gaining muscle (becoming toned), than the weight.
    My plan is to eat relatively clean, hit the gym in the morning before lectures, and maintain a positive atitude.

    By the way, anyone from AUS who would be willing to be my buddy-buddy?
    Basically, we just txt each other or something along those lines to keep the other updated on our respective progresses.
    Eg. Going to the gym, or eating a really healthy meal, etc. and check up on each other.
    It worked well for my previous weight-loss buddy and I, until she moved continents.  My free-txting only applies to AUS, not international. 

    EDIT: I'm going to have to drop out, sorry! Exams are coming, and I'd rather not be distracted by soompi.
    Once I log on . . I tend to start lurking in all types of forums. Good luck ~~
