    Friday, May 3rd Mini Challenge

    Tracking of food: Yes
    Under calories: No
    Exercise: 30 minute walk
    Net steps: 8917

    Saturday, May 4th Mini Challenge

    Tracking of food: Yes
    Under calories: No
    Exercise: 30 minute walk
    Net steps: 10,039

    Starting Weight: 124.4
    Weigh in Sunday, May 5th: 124.2

    I have 9 more pounds until I hit my pre-pregnancy weight, and 14 for my goal. I need to buckle down, because summer is coming and my shorts are still a little tight :)

    I had a minor surgery on my ear on Thursday, so it was a pretty low-key weekend for me exercise-wise. I still logged, but had a couple of social activities scheduled and was over by 200-300 calories on Friday and Saturday. I'll be able to exercise more vigorously this week, and I am going to make an effort to really watch what I am snacking on and not mindlessly eat. Have a great week everyone!

    @susanpiper57, a low key weekend with no exercise and social events and only a couple/few hundred over each day. Way to hold steady on the scales this weekend. Glad you can start exercising again this coming week. And yes, no mindless snacking!!

    @Tracie_Lord, I do have a Fitbit, I have just taken it off while I am having my foot issues. I know full well I am sitting on my butt right now, and I didn't need a gadget reminding me of that!! Mine is a three year old Charge HR. I would like to upgrade when I decide to get back into moving. There was a group from here doing Fitbit Challenges. @cmhubbard92, is that still happening? Maybe Tracie, or anyone else with a Fitbit would like to join?

    If there is a fitbit challenge group, I would love to join! I'm at //www.fitbit.com/user/22WC9G

    @susanpiper57, I do not know how to add people to Fitbit with what you have given me above. I can add with an email address; that's how I added @Kwinnero and @Tracie_Lord. Would you mind posting your email? If not, maybe you can add me. I think my email for Fitbit is lisasebok123@gmail.com. If that's not it, I will give you my other one.

    5/5/19 Mini Challenge
    Tracked: Yes
    Under: Yes
    Exercise: 90 minutes bowling plus some walking

    Today was a very laid back day. Finished the night off by making a veggie bake as part of my GOT challenge! Topping it off with a little walking so I meet my goal for the day!

    I failed and didn't cut the eggplant! I ended up cutting it after I had already put it in the oven. Hoping it still comes out well!

    If any of you have Fitbit, and I have failed to add you as a friend, please send me a request- my link is https://www.fitbit.com/user/5P8W7K

    Oh, I know that part! That is the only downfall to the website. I think that seeing the challenges on the desktop site would be a great update! I occasionally reference it to see lifetime/best steps/miles(which I wish showed on the app, too!). And in this case, I use it for adding new friends.

    Weigh in day. 168.8
    I was weighing in at 167.something most of this week so annoyed with this mornings weigh in.
    I’m so ready to get into the 150s now!

    Positives at the moment. Really good week for exercise. I want to get a decent run or two in this week as have a taekwondo tournament coming up. I’m still in the heavyweight category (incredibly annoying to be in the same weight category 100lbs later). I think I’m now one of the lighter and shortest women in this so a bit terrified of sparring now. I’m going to have to try and be quicker and have more stamina so working on cardio ++.

    Negatives. I’m definitely getting a bit “snacky” and having extra calories here and there. Hoping to have time today to do a proper meal plan including snacks and try pre logging again.

    @cmhubbard92, I use the app for adding friends, because it is easy to add friends of friends. I went to Mike's profile since he had all the Big Butts to date and I added a couple from there. Now I am just waiting for Melanie M. to accept my request and for susanpiper57 to either accept yours, (and I will add from there) or to tell me her email address, or to add me.

    5/3/19 Mini Challenge
    Tracked: Yes
    Under: Yes
    Exercise: 40 minutes Elliptical

    5/4/19 Mini Challenge
    Tracked: Yes
    Under: Not likely (buffet and drinks) but even though I'm not going to end up under for the day, I am way under my deficit for the week which is awesome.
    Exercise: ~2hours walking

    I will try to get back to some of the posts I've been mentioned in, but I am exhausted. We have about an hour back to my boyfriend's parents house, and I'm likely passing out after we get back

    @cmhubbard92, a lot of people on MFP use a weekly calorie goal instead of a daily calorie goal, so I can appreciate what you said about your deficit for the week. It may not work for the Mini Challenge, but it still gets you to your weight loss goal. As the saying goes, "there's more than one way...."

    @lozenger1984, I would be annoyed too if the number on the scale inched up for weigh-in day! But you seem to be taking it is stride, recongizing it for what it is, a snapshot in time. If you are still in the same taekwondo weight category as you were 100 pounds ago, that tells me that not a lot of women in that weight range even participate in taekwondo, or else they'd have more categories, but you were!!!! Your idea to work on stamina until you descend into the next weight range sounds like a sound strategy. Meal planning and pre-logging works for a lot of people, so definitely try it again! Here's to a great week!!

    @lozenger1984, I entered your weight in the spreadsheet and I have you losing 0.9 pounds! Well done!! I thought you had gained by the way you were talking. You were just saying that you thought you would have lost more!

    @Tracie_Lord, your new Fitbit is really getting a workout these days!! Look at all those active minutes!

    I love it!!! you really need to invest its so good to monitor your progress :)

    @Tracie_Lord, I do have a Fitbit, I have just taken it off while I am having my foot issues. I know full well I am sitting on my butt right now, and I didn't need a gadget reminding me of that!! Mine is a three year old Charge HR. I would like to upgrade when I decide to get back into moving. There was a group from here doing Fitbit Challenges. @cmhubbard92, is that still happening? Maybe Tracie, or anyone else with a Fitbit would like to join?

    Yes.. I would join.

    What would be super helpful is if everyone could give me their usernames on Fitbit, or their links so I can add them. I would love to start some challenges with you all! I have friends from other challenges on my Fitbit, so I just need to make a challenge for TBBT guys/gals!

    ETA: if you tell me what your names are on Fitbit, too that would help. I have a few friends with the same name, so it may get confusing!

    My fitbit is I'm at //www.fitbit.com/user/22WC9G and my name is Megan M. I would love an add!
