    I struggle with the weekends. I like my rum and pepsi but that only leads to eating wrong foods! :(

    6/27: Just graduated and am looking for a job, also just married my daughter off, so I have been very stressed out. I wanted to be in the 140s by now, but I am glad that I am at least maintaining through all of the chaos. July should be a bit less stressful.

    What a wonderful idea! I've never tried to lose weight before, but I want to prove my MDs wrong who say that weight gain is just a part of my illness/medications.

    Successes / struggles this week: My MDs say I should be gaining up to 1 kg /week. But I've already gained ~50 kg and I can't bear to gain any more weight b/c I already weigh more than some rugby players :(

    Successes / struggles this week:
    I've been back at MFP on a regular basis for the last month and lost 5 pounds during June. Now I need to keep going - instead of falling down as usual. I've worked out from my data in the last month that my TDEE is 1848 cals and I've been averaging eating 1265 cals a day. So now I know what I need to do for the month ahead.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Successes / struggles this week: I am one week in to cutting gluten out of my diet. I have had stomach problems for the last few years now and I knew gluten could be the culprit but was too stubborn to cut it out. One week in and I have had virtually no stomach issues all week, which is unheard of in my life. I have been much more conscious of what I am eating and planning much better. I am feeling very encouraged. I am also cutting back on my alcohol consumption, which might be even harder then cutting gluten. I am only allowing myself to have drinks (a glass or two of wine usually) on 3 of the 7 days of the week.
