Hot 100 - Week 3

The weather is getting colder and colder here in the northeast but my drive to lose weight is getting hotter and hotter. I almost feel "normal" in my skin even though I'm barely out of the obese category on the BMI charts.

It's been a challenge to stay on track this week because my sMother is visiting so there have been lots of restaurant meals and not enough time to get to the gym but I've been able to keep things under control. Although I didn't make any real progress on two of my Hot 100 goals, I lost an additional 2.4 pounds and broke into the 180s.

Here's my Hot 100 stats:

Goal #1 - Lose An Additional 15 Pounds by December 31st

Challenge Starting Weight (9/23/10): 194.2 lbs.
Week 1: -1.3 lbs.
Week 2: -0.9 lbs.
Week 3: -2.4 lbs.

Bye-bye 190s! I was so happy to see you and get into Onederland but I'm even happier to see you go.

Goal #2 - Couch to 5K

I haven't made a bit of progress with the C25K program this week since my time at the gym has been limited. I'm determined to get working on this next week when things get back to normal.

Goal #3 - Build More Muscles

I did a little better with the weight training than I did with the C25K. Even though I didn't get into the weight room at the gym I've been using some hand weights at home. I'm going to talk to the personal trainer at the gym next week to see how much it would be for a few sessions in the weight room. I know what to do but I'm thinking if I have someone there to keep me accountable and give me a little push the more likely I'll actually do it.

I've been having fun getting to meet more of my fellow Hot 100 challengers but I haven't made it to everyone yet.

Keep it HOT!


  1. GOOD JOB GIRL A NEW number ALWAYS feels good!

  2. 180's are almost my goal weight... Congrats!
    Well done with your all the eating out, etc...

  3. I laughed out loud at the "sMother" comment. Hopefully that wasn't a typo (but even if it was I still find it hilarious)!

    Good job with your weight loss this week. I loved going to the gym with my trainer. It made me more accountable especially when I had to pay someone!

  4. I like having someone to work out with. It takes the mind off the task at hand and makes the time go faster. Congrats on your loss! :D

  5. 180s! But it seems like the onederland dance was only about a week ago! That's amazing!! So impressed :)

  6. Way to go on getting into the 180s!! That's awesome!

    I'm really inspired by your consistancy - you go girl!

  7. I think I spelled "consistancy" wrong. Should be consistency. That one always gets me.

  8. Good for you! I let my own recent house guests derail me:(

  9. Damn girl! Congrats on the loss. Way to keep with it!!!!

  10. Awesome job on your Hot 100! I can't wait till I can say I've lost 30%.

    Oh and sMother had me rolling! thank you!


  11. You've done excellently especially considering the challenge of the restaurant meals. I keep thinking about getting a trainer, but haven't tried it yet. I need to find somebody local who has one that they love.

  12. Not a bad week at all! Good bye and good riddens to 190s!

  13. There is no way that I can lose weight when my mother is around. For someone who is so concerned with my weight, she sure does push the food on me. Congratulatins on the 2.4 lb loss and good luck on week 4.

  14. congrats on breaking into the 180s!
    i also want to thank you for all your support on my blog and invite you to follow my new one.
