    3/27 146
    4/3 145.6
    GW 140

    Total for week - .4
    Total for challenge - 2.4

    It gets sooooo slow as I get closer to my goal weight. I'm pretty pleased with the total results though.

    Weigh in: 215

    Pretty much doing a regular 2 miles a day walking the dog.
    Survived the BodyPump class on Sunday, really enjoyed it and hoping to join!

    New challenge accepted. The weekend is the hardest for me because I tend to be slack on what I'm eating.

    Hey guys I had a few busy days but today I got around to trying something new. I made a debloat smoothie which turned out super yummy so I will be making it again. Tomorrow is weigh in day and I know my numbers wont be good. This week's challenge is to be accountable. Log in everything you put in your mouth and all your exercise.

    Have to ask, what's a Debloat smoothie and would you mind sharing the recipe ☺️

    Go Tropical With Our Debloating Smoothie — Under 250 Calories, Too!

    The relief does not stop there — anyone who has ever been bloated can probably attest that too much sodium has played a role. Due to their potassium-rich content, banana and coconut water will help flush out the excess sodium. But if your bloating is caused by constipation, you'll be happy to know fiber-rich spinach is one of the main ingredients. This simple and sweet smoothie will ease your tummy in no time, and it's under 250 calories.

    Debloating Smoothie

    INGREDIENTS
    1/2 cup pineapple
    1/2 cup papaya
    1 frozen banana
    1/4 cucumber (with skin)
    1 cup chilled coconut water (or 4 coconut water ice cubes and 1/2 cup chilled coconut water)
    2 cups spinach
    4 ice cubes

    DIRECTIONS
    Puree everything in a blender until smooth.
    Enjoy immediately.

    I found the recipe on pinterest. Had it twice and love it.

    So far I'm doing great being accountable. I've been logging in my calories before I eat them so I don't go over. Hopefully this week I'll see a 2 pound loss. That's my goal.
  • pendennispendennis Posts: 60Member, Premium Member Posts: 60Member, Premium Member
    Yea! I'm able to work out. It looks like my injuries are getting better. The couple of rest days and modifications I did seemed to pay off.

    Now I'm just hoping I see a slightly smaller number on the scale the end of this week.
  • Ambergirl83Ambergirl83 Posts: 27Member Member Posts: 27Member Member
    Hiked 5 miles this morning and going to bike the Detroit river front tomorrow. Hoping for a loss on Monday!

    WEIGH IN DAY

    Starting weight (3/21/17)- 194.4
    Current Weight (4/10/17)- 189.6
    Goal Weight- 165

    Lost 4.8 lbs so far. It feels good to get below 190. One step at a time.

    Some favorite snacks lately:
    -Thinly sliced English cucumber with balsamic vinegar, dill, salt and pepper.
    -Ritz Crisp & Thins- When I really need a crunchy salty snack. They are baked and low in fat.

    Have a good week everyone!

    Family and holiday weekend following a stressful, snacking work week. Up a pound, hoping it's from the salt in the ham!!! Working hard to make up for it plus a loss this week. Now to get rid of all of those leftovers without doing it by eating them.

    Any ideas for weekly challenges? Getting 64 oz of water, increasing exercise time, keeping calories under 1500
