Thanks to DB I lost the pregnancy weight with all 3 boys. I was diagnosed with a Connective Tissue Disease and APL in late 2018 after struggling for a year. 2020 has lead to stress eating(!) Hopefully DB will get me back to my 2014 weight!

Are all of you having your post-weigh-in cheat food?

I'm SO demoralized. I worked so hard this month just to get here. My running times are getting slower. My stomach still looks fatty and I'm not sure why my body won't burn the stomach fat. Maybe it's burning muscle instead?!

I want to lose the next few pounds only if they will be fat, not muscle.

I would try more resistance workouts!

Dumb question, but are you eating too little for your excercise level? Sometimes, if you don't eat enough your body is storing the fat and burns muscle instead. Try some weight training and make sure you eat in a deficit but not too little.

  • Has anyone else had a rough start to April with the holiday? I feel like because I did weigh in, I gave myself a little too much allowance on treats, and I am up a few lbs. I know it’s likely water weight but I’m on he struggle/ guilt bus. I need motivation!

    I’m making a “reset meal” today of Spicy Chicken Veggie Noodle Soup. I make the noodles separately on the side so I can watch my portions.

    Anyone have an IG account that they post their stuff to? Mine is Ang.Gets.Fit if anyone wants to follow.

I was feeling like that last month! I think a back-to-back Kickstarter and then this transformer got me over-stressed about the weight and I gave up a little. Unfortunately, I didn’t make the goal last month, but now I feel good this month and knowing the % per month goes down gives me lots of hope! Motivation goes up and down, but it’ll come back up! We can do this! :blush:

I had tough time bc it's the busy season at work on top of the holiday. Finally feel like I can start to focus on me again! Hope you're back on track! Soup looks great!

1/10th of a pound off. My scale only calculates at 5/10th of a lb so I bought a new scale for tomorrow morning. I refuse to not make it by 1/10 of a lb.

  • Staying on my eating plan and letting healthy food work it’s magic.
    Today’s lunch was lemon garlic scallops with hearts of palm linguine and broccoli.
    Have a great weekend! 🙌????🌸

Where did you buy them? I’m looking into getting some!

ceaton

I bought them off Amazon they are called rollerblade macroblade. They are three wheel though so possibly a little faster than normal ones. The ones I had before are the K2 brand

I’ve looked at the figures for what the max weight loss is per round (I was checking to see the % before you’re disqualified) and I still can’t figure out what the max of lbs/kg I can lose per month is, thanks Dyscalculia 😩😳.
Could a kind soul please give me the most simple explanation for the max that I can lose for round 2 and 3 if my round two goal was 150lbs and I’m at 149.8lbs? My poor brain.

Thanks Elizabeth I was really struggling to visualising it, even after using a calculator. I definitely won’t be doing/aiming the max, was just a little worried as we’ve had a heavy cold go round and now it’s a tummy bug doing the rounds - I work in a school. Didn’t want to end up disqualified because of it,

Rudy C.

Disqualification: Each round in Transformer has its own disqualification threshold. If you lose more than the maximum allowed weight, you will be disqualified for the remainder of the game. This is to prevent players from going overboard or using bariatric procedures during the game.

Round 1 - 12%
Round 2 - 18%
Round 3 - 24%
Round 4 - 27%
Round 5 - 30%
Round 6 - 30%
Also, you can be disqualified for losing more than 12% in a round. For example, your starting weight is 200 pounds and at the end of Round 1 you were 192 pounds. If you then lost more than 23 pounds in Round 2 (that is, more than 12% of 192 pounds), you would be disqualified.

  • Just one-tenth of a pound to hit this round’s goal! Squeaking in at the end did NOT feel good last time!!! Might have this salad with bacon bits today for lunch. What do you think? 😆

What do you think will be your biggest challenge? I feel food prep consistently is it for me...gotta stay on top of it.

Late night snacking.

Laura S

Mine is staying away from the kitchen cupboard - a mix of secret eating and binging.
I’m extremely lucky though that from this week my work hours have gone up and I can only eat whatever I’ve bought from home during my 30 min lunch break which means I think about what I’m choosing and less hours at home!
