Jumpstart 2012 By Working On Ourselves “Week 2 Check In”

CONGRATULATIONS, you have made it through week 2. If you haven’t yet, please weigh and measure yourself and post your successes here as well. We’ve heard weight loss numbers as high as 20lbs. If you are still having trouble beating the sugar cravings, please read our article, Beat the Sugar Cravings With These 8 Tips. Many of you have asked about the emphasis on fruits and vegetables so we decided to start writing articles regarding the benefits of both. Take a look at this article An Apple A Day. Are you losing your Motivation? Get it back with these easy steps.

  7. Tanya Bakken says:

    Still In! Realizing it is hard to squeeze in so many fruits/veggies – I’m not hungry enough to eat them! :) Making “Green Monsters” for extra spinach in the morning, sweet potato/apple soups for lunch, etc! I’m sticking to no ice cream OR pizza (added that in to) VERY well! Lost about 3 pounds..*(I don’t have much to lose anyway, but needed a “revamp” on the nutrition thing!). THANK YOU!

  20. Shiloh Wester says:

    Shiloh Wester is still in!!! Lost a few pounds, but don’t really have much to lose….but I FEEL so good!! I’ve found that variety is important with the produce, and leaving bowls of cut up veggies on the counter is an easy way to get my family to snack on healthy food vs junk. The biggest thing I’ve noticed is that I feel full pretty much all day. I actually feel like I’m eating more food than I used to, but I think it’s mostly because I’m eating more frequently, and the veggies make me feel fuller for longer. Anyways, I’m still in, and still loving it :)

    Jill Chamney AKA Running Jill is still in!!!

  22. Lorie Walker says:

    Lorie Walker is STILL IN!! This week was harder than last. Came down with something on Thursday, but made it through. Just did some fun WII sport things with my daughter to get my exercise in for that day, and chugged the last glass of water before bed. Ok with the veggies and fruit. Chocolate is the vice I gave up and was tempted when Scott had a chocolate bar in front of me this week, and at Dairy queen for a treat when we were out, but chose Strawberry cheesequake blizzard, a mini one and shared it with the kids! Scale and measurements are for this Sunday. Waiting till then.

    STILL IN! Down 4 lbs. I unearthed my clothing laden treadmill, actually using it to walk/run 45 min a day, no soda, no fast food, no junk! Feeling a little more like myself each day!!!! Water intake holding steady. A challenging weekend ahead of me-officiating at an ALL DAY/ALL WEEKEND swim meet. I CAN DO THIS!!!! Thanks for the push!

  28. Chris Brown says:

    Still in! No fast food in two weeks, and down 6.2 lbs.

  29. Kathy Lunetta says:

    Still in. Not trying to lose weight (at a healthy weight already). No trouble eating the fruits/veggies (I’m vegetarian, its natural! Eating fire roasted tomato-red lentil soup now for lunch). Main issue is my vice, and I succeeded in avoiding at work this week.

  30. Donna Howell says:

    I’m still in…. My first weigh in today and I lost 7.6 lbs. Not bad for week one. Now I just need to make sure week two I at least lose a pound.

  32. Katherine Bradley says:

    Woohoo! Still in! I’m going to weigh in Monday morning. Looks like another week of altering my run schedule, though, since my kids are out of school Monday; I’ll just have to shift over a day. :)

  33. Aimee Benoit says:

    Still in!!! :)

  34. Jenna Master says:

    Jenna Master is “still in.” Last Friday when I first reported in I had lost 5.8 lbs. I was weighed/measured on Tuesday (1 week since starting) and my loss was up to 7 lbs. I am still holding at that 7 lb. mark. Guess the week 2 curse on “The Biggest Loser” holds true for me too, lol. I will be weighed/measured on Tuesday again so I hope to report more loss than.

    Enjoying my butternut soup for lunch which is something I never would have done before this challenge. It’s amazing how carb/protein loaded my meals were with little or no fruits & veggies. I’ve wholehearted embraced this challenge not only for the 10-12 weeks, but as a lifestyle change. I’ve never felt better!
