    It took me awhile to get in today. I was logged in but when came to the challenges would show me logged out. Cleaned the cache, logged completely out and back in and seemed to work because here I am, lol. WOW in a month I lost 10.6 lbs. I worked really hard, and have been very strict with my intake and under calories except one day. Thanks for the encouragement and telling me the scales will move again if doing everything right. This week with hubby working 2nd shift and the gorgeous weather we had, I did a lot of walking. Thanks and see you in April!

    @jlbtnc, yes, that happened to me a little while ago and clearing the cache is what worked for me, too. See? When you put it into perspective, 10.6 pounds gone for the month, then the one week with virtually no loss doesn't matter anymore. Well done on a fantastic month....believing in the process, having patience and persevering!! Can't wait to see what you can do in April!!!

    So, good news is, 3 pound loss for the month. Moving towards goal in the bigger picture. I’m finally mostly out of my month long sickness and back in the gym. I’ve ate under calories the last 2 days. I’ve decided to push my goal range from 220-225 to 215-220. Just can’t seem to shake the extra belly pudge. Not sure if the next 10 pounds will do the trick, or what. I’m worried about going much lower because I don’t want to lose any muscle mass. I am doing everything right to preserve it, but still worry. I’m looking forward to April being my last month in a deficit. It was suppose to be March, but best laid plans and all.

    @mikea2g, yeah, March definitely didn't go the way you had envisioned, but, like you said, you still lost three pounds, so it wasn't completely a wash!! That's the beauty of a goal weight, we have the prerogative to change it, especially when we get close to it and can see it for real!!

    Friday weigh in
    Last week - 207.2
    This week - 205.4
    Started this month at 209.6, so in general went down a bit. Hoping to get to 200 in April.

    @swauters, you lost four pounds in a month, one per week on average. That would be 52 pounds over the course of a year! That being said, two and a bit pounds per week is within your grasp...you just have to up your game!!! Well done last week, and here's to a successful April!!

    Definitely going to try my best. I was very strict with my calories this last week. I also started to do bodyweight exercises at home and drinking more water. Hopefully I can keep up with the weight loss in April. My birthday is coming up.

    So my weigh in this week comes with an apology for the team 😣 We were away 5 days out of 7 last week and food and drink were very off plan. I've been back on plan 100% since we got home yesterday so will finish of the month strong next week.

    No apologies necessary. We all have weeks where we can’t stay on track, but congrats on getting back home and getting back on track right away. Sometimes that’s the hardest part.

    Thank you @pkg1998 ☺️
