    Thursday 6849 kJ, day 22
    Friday 8754 kJ, day 23
    Saturday 6288 kJ, day 24

    So I'm doing alright so far, each day has been below maintenance. I'll do two counts, one below maintenance, and from now on, one at my ideal intake, 6,000 kJ or below.

    I was not able to control the salt /bread craving. All failed to use self-talk and my strategies. I just caved. TOM. I was prepared with chocolate treats, but not salt. :( ugh. It's a new day!! Back on the horse. I can do this.

    6/26 Day 12 over - 1600 [????] Didn't track. My guess... 2500?
    Longest Streak: 10 days
    Current streak -2
    I'm going to finish the month strong with the next four days and those leading up to the 4th. Mental strength will win!

    Friday 7,094 kJ, 29 days below maintenance. I want to speed things up so from today I'll be throwing away $2 for each day I'm above 6,000 kJ. Probably to be found by a child since they seem to have coin finding skills adults have lost. This is roughly equivalent to the cost of Weight Watchers meetings.

    I needed some perspective so that I would stop beating myself up for the past few days of mess ups. 10/14 days is not too bad. Not great. I need to pull myself back up.

    @johicks & hixa30
    I think you’re both doing great!

    Jo - What weight loss per week are you shooting for? Do you take walks or exercise? I’m wondering if you are getting enough calories?
  • hixa30hixa30 Posts: 233Member Member Posts: 233Member Member
