    Don't forget to respond to the question of the week if you haven't already: what are three things that make your weight loss journey better/easier? A lot of Gutbusters have already responded, with a mix of process-oriented behaviors (like tracking on MFP) and gear (Fitbit, etc). What works for you?


    And a couple weighers I want to be sure I haven't missed from earlier this week:

    December Week 1
    Previous Weight: 165 lbs (this needs to be changed as gave what it was at dr's office 1 week before but once i checked at my home when i found my scale lo-behold gained weight by then :s )
    Current weight:164 lbs

    @kkmark -- Coach @craigo3154 was able to change your starting weight on the spreadsheet (thanks!). Now that you've found the home scale, use it for all your weigh-ins if you can -- not so much because of this challenge, but just so you can better monitor your own progress.

    There's a saying around here: same prize for last place as for first! :smile: Doesn't matter where we start, we're all trying to lose!

    Thank you

    Anyway, my weight loss will tell over time whether I'm hitting the right deficit or not.

    Don’t guess! Weigh everything!! Do you have a scale? It’s been a game changer in my life.

    I do have a scale, and I weigh food at home as often as possible. For the enchiladas from scratch the other night, I weighed all the meat before adding it, for example, but I didn't measure out by the tablespoon how much oil I used to saute the onions and garlic, though. Then there are some times over the week where I eat at a salad bar, and I eyeball how much tuna I'm adding to my salad, or how much cream or milk I add to my coffee when I get coffee out. Those little bits add up, for sure, and at this point where I'm homing in on the last 20 pounds, I definitely need to get better about more precisely measuring those little bits.

    I thought I was on gutbusters this month but I guess not. Please advise...

    I’m feeling slightly discouraged with myself. I’ve been over calorie count nearly everyday. Today I’m using as my cheat day instead of Sunday. I ate out twice. I was fairly disciplined in the foods I chose and kept it as simple as possible but I still ate out. I am hoping this doesn’t affect my weight too badly for weigh in. Very disappointing.

    I am still loving the journey and enjoying all that TBL challenge has to offer and I hope everyone else’s week has been head and tails above mine (eating wise).

    @dommylifts - Just remember tomorrow is a New Day! Try again tomorrow and the next, and so on. Some days and weeks are harder than others. Stay positive and motivated! Good luck.

    Really trying to stick with 3 meals per day. No more snacking. I find that derails me pretty fast, snacks add up way to quick.

    1. Fitbit/MFP. I'm very numbers oriented and seeing a numerical representation of the effort I'm putting in really helps me feel like I'm actually doing something even if the scale isn't moving
    2. 9round. I have finally found an exercise I'm willing to get out of bed at 4:45 am for! Enjoying the workouts make it much more likely that I actually go to the workouts
    3. Co-workers. My job has this "health group" where we all meet Friday mornings and share tips - it's great! Our boss even bought us a scale. One member in it always runs after work and I feel like if she's doing it, I need to as well and I've been much more accountable with my running - got down to a 9 min/mile for my last 5k!
