    Height: 5” 3’

    Start weight: 138 lbs
    Challenge start weight: 126.5 lbs (30 June)
    Challenge goal weight: 122 lbs (31 July)
    Ending goal weight: 119 lbs

    Weigh-ins:
    30 June 126.5
    6 July 125.1
    11 July: 124.1

    +/- this week: -1.0
    +/- this month: -2.4

    Successes: Home renovations and picking décor kept us not eating out and not snacking but yet not feeling like we worked hard enough for a lot of beer. Finally strung two weekends together in a row where I did not blow my progress. Being able to focus on loosing more weight and not working back to where I was on Thursday is refreshing!

    Struggles: Family arrives tomorrow for a week's stay. I am not able to log or look like I am watching my weight around them. Going to try to rely on the portion sizes and diet choices I have gotten used to seeing on my plate lately without access to a food scale or control over what goes into the recipes.

    Absolutely delighted as had a couple days of not counting calories or macros, assumed I'd gain.

    Weight -/+ this week: -3.1lb
    Weight -/+ this month: +0.2lb

    Successes / struggles this week: Not getting activity has really had a massive impact on my life. I bounced up to 229 at the beginning of July, because I didn't eat as healthy as I should have, and didn't control my portions. Ever so grateful to have my medical restrictions lifted so I can at least walk 30 mins. 5x a week, if nothing else.

    This is all on me, I hold myself accountable, but also am motivated and encouraged to see a decent loss after only one week of clean eating. Today's breakfast was an apple-blackberry smoothie. Lunch is portioned cheese and nuts: filling and healthy oils and protein.

    NSV - Sunday I wore a bathing suit that didn't hide my thighs. Initially I was proud of myself when I put it on, then I was embarrassed because it was not very supportive on top either lol, and I almost talked myself out of wearing it. And I decided, I'm going to the pool for me. Not for anyone else and their judging, glaring eyes. If you don't like what I look like...LOOK AWAY....cause I'm here to stay!

    That is so awesome, that is a huge victory. You have to live your life for you, people are going to have an opinion no matter what, you can't let it stop you from enjoying yourself.

    Weight -/+ this month: -.5

    Successes / struggles this week: I was gone on vacation for the past 8 days so I'm late to weigh in. I debated skipping weigh-in this week and waiting until Monday to let some post-vacation bloat settle. I adjusted my calorie limit (moved up to only 1/2 lb loss per week) and committed to be active for 20 minutes every day. And I actually stuck to my calories all but one day and exercised! Usually I go into 'vacation-mode' and anything goes. So I'm really happy to see a loss no matter how small. The scale may be moving slower than I'd like but overall I'm feeling great and happy with some changes in habits.

    Weight -/+ this month: Gotta get started.... better late than never.

    Successes / struggles this week: I am just getting started (again) and I need to get my *kitten* together... I know what I have to do, but I have to get my head in the game. Checking in and staying accountable is necessary for my success so here I am. I got off the couch last night and put in a 30 minute workout and got up this morning and got to a jazzercise class. Win! Now I just need to stay away from the sugary treats and make sure everything I grab has value!
