    Weight -/+ this week: -1.6
    Weight -/+ this month: -2.3

    Successes/struggles this week: Fluctuations suck. Up, down, up, down. Whatever - I'm still eating right and working out 5-6 times a week. This is a marathon, not a sprint... and all those other clichés. Just keep swimming... :love: Oh, and on the PLUS side... my boyfriend is commenting on how cut my arms & shoulders are getting. YAY!!

    And thanks B3achy for the support & advice. I definitely need to be measuring. :smile:

    Didn't officially weigh in last week because I had a rough one. Luckily I was able to get it together! I hit my goal and then some! Still hoping to move a little more by the end of the month.

    This was a weird week - total lack of exercise motivation, too much wine and twizzlers in my food diary, and zero change on the scale for four days (usually there is an increase or decrease, but I've never weighed the exact same four days in a row in the past three years of weighing myself daily). Just happy there was still a significant loss for the week.

    Weight loss progress:
    16 May 2016 (start MFP): 149.4 lbs
    1 June 2016: 145.8 lbs (3.6 lost)
    1 July 2016: 141.6 lbs (4.2 lost)
    1 August 2016: 138.2 lbs (3.4 lost)

    Challenge Starting Weight July 29: 138.6 lbs (C/W/H: 34.0"/29.0"/38.5")
    Challenge Goal Weight August 31st: 133.0 lbs
    [Ultimate goal: less than 120 lbs by end of Dec]

    Weekly Weigh In (I weigh in and tape for record on Fridays)
    July 29: 138.6 lbs C/W/H: 34.0"/29.0"/38.5"
    Aug 5: 137.8 lbs C/W/H: 34.0"/28.5"/38.0"
    Aug 12: 137.8 lbs C/W/H: 33.75"/28.5"/38.0"
    Aug 19: 136.6 lbs C/W/H: 33.75"/28.25"/37.75"
    Aug 26: 135.6 lbs C/W/H: 33.5"/28.25"/37.5"
    Sep 2:

    Total LBS lost this week: 1.0 lbs
    Total LBS lost this month: 3.0 lbs

    Total LBS lost overall: 13.8 lbs; 15.6 lbs to go for ultimate goal!

    Challenges: Total bust for exercise motivation this week...had zero desire to paddle and forced myself to at least do my gazelle. Eating was so-so, and I think I might be PMSing. Barring a miracle, not going to make my challenge goal weight (which I knew was a bit of a stretch) by end of the month.

    Successes: Still dropped weight and inches despite continued motivation challenges, and happy with around 3 pounds lost for the month given so many challenges these past few weeks.

    Thanks for posting the new challenge! I'll post one last time to close out my month here, and then post the new challenge info into the September post! I like to have at least one weight tracking challenge, and I prefer it to be individual and monthly for my own accountability. Found the longer challenges have very few people that will stick with it (our memorial day challenge is down to less than 10 people still posting). So this one is perfect for me to participate in!

    Wrapping up this month's challenge, though I probably should have wrapped it up last week, since I had a small gain from last week...lol...stupid scale, TOM bloat, and workout water retention. Really thought I'd see the 134's today given yesterday's numbers on the scale. Oh well.

    Sep 2: 135.8 lbs C/W/H: 33.5"/28.25"/37.5"

    Total LBS lost this week: -.2 lbs
    Total LBS lost this month: 2.8 lbs

    Total LBS lost overall: 13.6 lbs; 15.8 lbs to go for ultimate goal!

    Challenges: TOM bloat early in the week along with serious hormonal eating challenges. Had better numbers yesterday (135.2), but started a new workout session which might be causing a little water retention today. No paddling this past week, so tougher to keep on track calorie-wise.

    Successes: Started a new workout session yesterday. Survived the hurricane storms and a super bad TOM week.
