    My goal is to log my foods, track my carbs, no alcohol, increase my water intake, and no sugar.
    Joining a gym at end of month...

    Really afraid to weigh in tomorrow. Derby weekend was hard. Lots of great food and too many picnics. Then I ate some things late at night that I shouldn't have. Not sure why I have seemed so hungry this week. I know it's not PMS. I said good-bye to that a few years ago. Maybe it's the added strength training twice a week.

    Guess I'll find out in the morning.

    GW: 170

    Goals for May:
    Keep under my calorie intake goal.
    NO SODA or PIZZA
    Hit my 10,000 steps daily.

    I lost over 60lbs my first weight loss trip. I was 262 and dropped down to 200. Then I got pregnant and gained 53 lbs. I lost some weight a few weeks after giving birth but I can't seem to get below 220 now and I'm down and determined to get below 200 for once and then hit my goal of 170 and then start weight training. I wanna be a hot mom. 😆 Plus I'm engaged now and wanna look good on my wedding day and get rid of these "bat wings" (saggy upper arms.)

    Glad I ran across this thread!...

    UGW 199

    Started January this year working out 6 days a week alternating with weights and cardio. My May goal is to eat healthier. In the past month I've fallen off eating healthy and counting my calories... one weekly cheat meal has turned to two or three a week in the past month. Hoping to be at 239/240lbs by the end of the month.

    I think that's good insight on perhaps not doing a "cheat meal". I don't do that...slippery slope. It isn't to say I don't make mistakes, I do - for example sometimes I think calories are a certain level, then when I log they are not -that is a mistake, but not an intent.

    Today was weigh in day, I’m down 1/2 a pound. It’s going in the right direction but obviously not as quickly as I would like. I nailed my water intake goal (yay me), was “pretty good “ at logging and failed miserably with getting my butt moving! I know where I need to improve moving forward!

    Good luck! My weigh in didn’t go as well as I’d hoped but I’m considering it a teachable moment!

    SW- 240
    CW- 237.4
    GW One- 200 (hope to achieve by the end of june)
    GW Two- 175 (hope to achieve by the end if the summer)
    GW Three- 150 (hope to achieve by January)
    UGW- 125 (hope to achieve next spring)

    Now that ultimate goal weight looks unrealistic, but I am only 5' 2"! So far it's been pretty slow going? I have PCOS and I'm taking Metformin for it, which has helped regulate my weight (before I would be all over the place- I would go from 238 to 250 within a day or two) and as I've changed my diet and begun to add exercise to my routine, the numbers are finally going down and staying down! I started the year at 250, and hope to end it at 150!

    My May Goals-
    1. Walk 30 min 3 times a week
    2. Log all meals
    3. 72 oz of water a day
    4. Walk 3 miles every Saturday

    Well, I lost one pound. Now for a goal check:

    Exercise - got that!!
    Log in daily - got that!!
    Snacking - not so good, and I carried snacks up to my bedroom - guess I know why the scale was reluctant
    Healthy recipe - I bombed this one, but technically I still have the weekend.

    May Goals:
    1. Log Everything Everyday
    2. Drink at least 64oz water per day
    3. Walk/work out 30min at least 3x/week

    UPDATE!
    CW: 215.2
    -1.6lbs since May 7, -4.4lbs since May 1st!

    I am logging everything. I'm still having some trouble meeting my water goals but I'm still working at it. I have been walking, too! My SO, our daughter, and I are playing a new Walking Dead AR game. Funny enough, it motivates me to walk around more/farther to get more zombies and collect more stuff. 😂
