    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I was surprised to see long, busy shifts on my feet haven't been commensurately high in steps. I've stayed above my goal, but quite a bit of that comes from walking to work. The pace at work has also lead to inadvertent intermittent fasting - there were a couple of days where I was finishing my lunch at home afterward as part of dinner. A struggle has been strength training, as I simply don't have time to fit it in on days that I work. I managed two days this week, but I see better results from three. A success has been getting my cardio in every day, even when I've been bone-tired and not feeling it at all.

    This should hopefully all shake out as I acclimate to new routines. Have a great week, everyone!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Down again this week. Average for the month of July up slightly. Upcoming week is going to be a challenge this is wedding week so many dinners out and the wedding on Saturday. I will try to pace myself and behave.

    This quote from Lucille Ball came up on my retirement countdown i believe this applies to life as well as our weight journey:
    "Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: My scale weight is a little low this week, but my trend is still in range. I feel like I eat a lot, but I guess I need to eat a little more. My runs have been really good lately and my mileage is up some too so I guess I need to compensate for that. Sometimes I just have to eat when I'm not really hungry. They say you can't outrun your fork, but lately it seems like I've been keeping ahead of the fork more than I need to.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: My weight has still been up over the high end of my maintenance range, but I did have one high sodium day in the middle of the week which bumped my weight up and held it there for the rest of the week. I'm hoping that my weight will go back down again this week, as I don't have any meals out planned. I got a new Fitbit because my old Fitbit One has been slowly dying over the past couple of months. New Fitbit is helping a bit with motivation to exercise, and the "reminders to move" feature is useful and has bumped up my activity a little bit this past week.

    Struggles
    Weight creeping up, a bit faster in July. Appetite is up. Salt intake higher to increase bp. Food is then tastier. Motivation to exercise has been down due to fatigue & having to build strength up again.

    I have travel coming up & want to be 153 by then.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:
    All labs are awesome! Healthy. Normal weight.

    I have increased my exercise workout minutes back to close to what they need to be.

    I have decreased my calories, too.

    I’m tracking all & continuing to analyze in the interest of figuring out the balance my body needs.

    Success/struggles of the week: I want to celebrate because it is officially one year since I started losing weight and today I am 42 pounds less than a year ago. There’s been some big health changes in the past year for me (gall bladder surgery, becoming gluten free due to severe intolerance and giving up alcohol) and I am very happy that I am so much healthier and stronger than I was a year ago. It is very empowering to lose weight and gain strength. Thanks to everyone for being such an inspiration on this journey.

    I am lowering my maintenance range as my weight has continued to drop the last couple of months. It’s been summer for me (I am a teacher and return to school next week) and so it’s been easier to get more exercise and eat healthy. I like this range but I also want maintenance eating to be easy so I am hoping this range will work for me. Have a great week everyone!

    Successes/Struggles: Walked 7.8 miles on August 2. Ate a big brownie hot fudge sunday, 40oz of hard cider, 1/2 rack of ribs, hush puppies, twister fries, cornbread. Pleasantly surprised I only put on 0.6lbs because of that. Probably should have weighed in Saturday morning.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:Checking in early. Today starts all the food feasting. It's my daughters 30th birthday, Friday pre wedding party, Saturday wedding. I have been good watching my food intake all week and will be today as well as tomorrow, Saturday I will allow myself a little extra. I am going to try to focus on the moment not the food like I have before. Wish me luck with that.

    Have a great week.

    Congratulations, Pam! @pkweier

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Glad to see that drop, I didn’t like creeping so close to the high end of my maintenance! I had a good week, really focused on staying at or slightly under my goal and no mindless snacking! Also got in several good walks! We leave for vacation in 37 days (but who’s counting??) so I’d like to get back to that low end of maintenance.
