    Starting Weight: 260 - 118.18 kgs (January 2018)
    CW: 185.8 lbs. (84.45 kgs)
    GW: 140 (63.63 kgs)
    Challenge Weight: 179 (81.36 kgs)

    Week 1 - January 12th: 184.6 (Loss of 1.2 lbs)

    This is great because that means I am finally dialing into the appropriate amount of calories to lose 1 lb a week. I was able to do bodyweight exercises twice this week. Would like to up it to 3 but I am not going to beat myself up over 1 day.

    I am preparing myself to be out of commission as far as exercise goes for a while so I have to get my way of eating down. Been making extra meals, freezing them, as well as including instructions for re-warming for hubby to just be able to do it for me while I am recuperating.

    Positive: I was consistent. I logged and I did my daily exercise.

    Frustration: zero weight change. Was really hoping for a tiny data point of encouragement.

    Plan: stay the course one more week then start increasing intensity of workout in a kind, not punitive way.

    I just love challenges and it help you in your motivation to reach your goal.
    Starting with 230 lb goal reaching 180 need to lose 2.5 weekly if possible and seems easy just need assistance

    How's week 1 been??I haven't budget on weight but I am happy. week 1 - I have ran 19km in week 2 - I hope to exceed 20km but it is hard finding the balance to do every day even with the run every day challenge in aid of Mind.

    Birthday cake today as my daughter turns 7 but I finish work early enough to run before she finishes school so it balances out more 😂

    Here's to positive week 2 for all x

    Check – in
    07/01 55.5 kg
    14/01 50 kg
    Weight lost 0.5 kg (just over 1 lb)
    Happy with that, I have eaten out again over the weekend.
    The plan for this week includes the gym and some aerobic DVD at home. We are out for the day on Thursday – going to the theatre in Bath – and are intending to eat out at a Chinese buffet restaurant on the way home, so plenty of exercise is called for. At the moment we have no plans for the weekend so hope to counteract the Chinese meal by Monday morning.

    Lost 2 pounds this past week! I logged my food the whole week, walked 5 days out of 7, drank my water every day, and no alcohol the whole week.

    Top tip...

    Just because the scales have not changed, it doesn't mean changes are not happening.
    Your clothes may suddenly feel looser
    Your shape may change
    Your skin may be clearer
    You may feel healthier

    All part of the cycle never let what does or does not happen in the scales get you down.

    I have maintained - but I feel I have likely built muscle on my legs after the last two weeks of running so this does not surprise me much!

    This has been a weird week with me and the scale. For the first time since I started losing 4 months ago I've had an upward trend over the week and have gained 2lb since last week. My guess is water weight or hormones but I'm not sure. I'm going to keep logging and see what this week brings!

    SW: 155
    1/7: 127.2
    1/14: 129.2

    Exercise wise I've been doing 40-50min of strength training every day and getting in 10,000 or more steps which was my goal. So that is good! Focusing on positives. Great job everyone!

    Muscle build rather then weight loss maybe with the strength training??

    Weekly Weigh-In
    SW: 190
    Challenge Goal: 138
    Ultimate Goal:120

    Jan 07 - 146.2
    Jan 14 - 145.1

    I’m definitely getting to the point in my weight loss where I can probably only expect to lose about 1 lb a week. It’s nice to lose more but since I’m only 25 lbs away from my goal probably not realistic. My challenge goal of 138 is probably not gonna happen but I’ll keep it the same and see how close I can get :)

    My workouts this month are starting to get a little draining. Doing 30 Day Shred and keeping up with my running is really tough and exhausting. I want to stick it out through the end of the month because I set a goal and I want to reach it but I’m so looking forward to my training plan in February that has no days with two workouts!

    I really hope so! I've increased my weights so that might be a part of it

    Today is not a good day, I have managed to lock myself out of my house and no way of getting in until my husband gets home when ever that may be.
    Also means I have no car- I was lucky I had my phone and bank card on me so I could get to work still!! Does mean I have no lunch and no car to get any do I am eating scraps of bad food I have hiding in my desk!!!

    That sucks. Your saga must have traveled across the pond! Fell, did the splits on ice, and ripped my pants. Called my boss to let her know I would be running back home but found out my car keys are locked in the car. No extra set available until the end of the day.

    I will laugh about this tomorrow though!
