    Current weight- I haven’t weighed in for about 3 weeks. I’m struggling to eat right and stay on track. I am not sure what changed but I feel out of control and I hate that! Hopefully I can get it together before I gain the 22 lbs I lost back. I’m afraid to weigh myself right now. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    @Tracie_Lord
    Congratulations you are killing it!

    I did the 52/52 Challenge 2016/17 and lost 37/43 then made GW 184 in May 2018, (My original SW 376 2013).
    Been below GW for one year,

    For Tracie and others, I know that losing a pound a week for 52 weeks
    May be “slow” but it works! Great way to keep focus on each day/week to see the months add up.

    Keep going!

    Current weight- I haven’t weighed in for about 3 weeks. I’m struggling to eat right and stay on track. I am not sure what changed but I feel out of control and I hate that! Hopefully I can get it together before I gain the 22 lbs I lost back. I’m afraid to weigh myself right now. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    I’ve had periods like that, feeling out of control, and it’s usually when I am trying (and failing) to do too much and haven’t taken the time to really clear my head, review my goal, set my intention.

    What is one thing (just one) that you can focus on this next week?

    For me when I scale back I usually make it about my food, and the best balance of sticking to my diet that is achievable even if I don’t have much time. Diet is about 80% of weightloss. But you don’t have to be perfect.

    Keep it simple, take it one step at a time, focus your energy.

    Good luck :smile:

    Successes to date:
    This week I hit the "52 pound" weightloss challenge goal! However my true goal is 54.5kgs (120lbs), so I am a little under half way.

    I've fixed my sleeping issues and now get really good quality sleep, I walk pretty much every day, I've shifted my diet to low-carb wholefoods, and incorporated a fasting protocol.

    This week's goals: to do strength training twice a week (I've been trying to make this a good regular habit for months now, and haven't made it stick yet, bit of a failure!) & create a practice of 5 minutes of mindfulness each day.

    Congratulations!!!! Well on your way to reaching your goal. Such an inspiration.

    This week's challenges: impromptu dinner out, meals creeping to later at night, colder weather in the Southern hemisphere has meant I haven't been getting out for all my walks and have been rugging up more inside rather than moving freely throughout the day.

    This week's goals: get back on track with increased exercise and eating earlier in the evening (and homecooked meals only!).

    Goal weight: 130.0 lbs
    Current weight: 167.1 lbs
    Total weight lost: 18.9 lbs

    This week's successes: I felt really good about myself this week. Overall, I was pretty happy and motivated and not letting the little things get to me.

    This week's challenges: I didn't eat as well as I should have had. I also didn't lose as much as I wanted, but I shouldn't be too down on myself about it. I just have to remind myself that it's okay as long as I'm losing and feeling better about myself. I can't let the scale validate my progress for everything.

    Next week's goal: I want to put together the good habits that I've been practicing together. Also, since the weather has been nice, I want to hit 10k steps a day by taking a nice walk every day.
