    @buxbert I feel the same about brushing teeth too. I've also read that brushing teeth regularly helps to prevent hunger triggers. I guess by this method, getting rid of the after taste of flavours is key. Anyway- it helps me too....

    Success: only .2 lost, a little disappointing, but a loss is a loss. BUT I did manage to reach 'onderland' which is a big, big boost for me. I had a few hiccups this month so I do know I can do better, which I will do next month. My goal for next month is to pick up the activity level.

    26th February: 194
    1st March:

    Weight lost/gained this week: 1
    Weight lost/gained this month: 1

    Successes/struggles 1st week: What?! I gained 4.5 lbs in 5 days?! I didn't even know that was possible. The scale is going the wrong way. I exercised every day. I didn't eat super great, but I didn't eat horribly either. I went over a few days, but not by much. Heavy sigh. Hopefully next week will have a better #.

    Successes/struggles 2nd week: Had emergency gall bladder surgery on the 10th. It sort of put a damper on exercise. Ha. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things this week.

    Successes/struggles 3rd week: Still recovering from surgery. It's not that bad actually, but I am following Dr's orders and taking it easy. I usually jump right back into things if I feel fine. Then it backfires and I realize why they say go slow even if you feel good. Ha. I will weigh myself this Friday. I think things will be close enough to normal that whatever the scale says will be legit. I was afraid it would show too much loss because of my tentative and careful eating after surgery which is not how I usually eat. I know I'm not going to reach my goal because of the huge jump the first four days (still think that's crazy), but hopefully I will not have gained any. I love this challenge and am looking forward to continuing it next month as well.

    Successes/struggles 4th week: Well, this month didn't go as planned, but I am happy to have lost 1 lb. Here's to a more successful March!

    1st March:

    Weight lost/gained this week: -5 lbs.
    Weight lost/gained this month: -15 lbs.

    Successes/struggles this week: My success came today when I stepped on the scale and saw that I now weigh the same as my fiance. That was my first goal I wanted to reach.

    My struggle came this week in the form of starting a 30 day free trial at a new gym in town with my best friend. But between a full-time job, full-time college, and a 2 year old, she doesn't have much time to go after work so we've been getting there around 6:40 for the past three mornings. I don't remember the last time I regularly woke up at 6 a.m. Even when I worked about 40 minutes from home, I was still able to get up at 6:30 a.m. for work. Sweets have also still been a struggle for me to avoid :/ I always crave them at night around 8 p.m.
