    8/1: weight 153.5, stayed under calorie goal so far, so crushed goal #2! 😎 ate dinner past 9pm though just bc I wasn’t hungry until later. Lifted heavy yesterday so did a nice 30 minute walk today with my doggo.

    Female 20y
    166cm / 5"5
    SW: 61kg / 135lb
    GW1: 58kg / 127lb
    GW2: 55kg / 121lb

    Goal #1: Stop eating/snacking after dinner or when I'm not hungry (substitute with a cup of tea if I need)
    Goal #2: Exercise daily - I will be doing Chloe Ting's Ab challenge as well as walking daily and attending the gym when I can
    Goal #3: Make healthier food choices (choosing vege/fruit and also choosing smaller portions of the more classical 'unhealthy foods')

    1/8 - 60.7kg - Y Y ~
    2/8 - 60.8kg - I started drinking more water so I'm assuming that's why the scale went up even though my count was low yesterday. But I went over my calorie count today which was super disappointing :( , but I stopped myself from giving in and snacking/eating extra! Proud of myself for acknowledging that I didn't need to make the day worse and give into my cravings. I'm making a change!! Exercised as per usual and chose a salad and a piece of carrot cake for lunch, so probs need to work more on eating healthier oops

    Goal #1: movement every day
    Goal #2: track food intake every day up until vacation
    Goal #3: try to live in moderation during vacation - not restrict but not let myself get out of control

    1/8 - 141.1. Did a 45 min RPM class and a 25 min walk with my dog this morning before work. Have tracked everything I've eaten so far today. Very stressful work day here, trying to keep snacking at a minimum to stay at my calorie goal.

    2/8 - 141.8. UGH. I had a late dinner with a friend, she made a meal from Blue Apron and it was delicious but higher in calories and sodium than I usually eat. I'm really hoping the uptick is due to the late time I ate and sodium and that it drops off soon. Today is my rest day from the gym but my goal is to take a long walk, and track all my food again.

    BF: 21.6%
    GW by end of August: 107
    GW final: 105
    GBF final: 20%

    Goal #1: OTF 3x week
    Goal #2: Lower body fat to 20%
    Goal #3: Reduce/eliminate alcohol consumption for month of August (me too!!!)

    8/1 109.4/21.6%
    8/2 110 / 21.4%

    It keeps going up! What's going on?! I was under and burned over 550 cals at OTF last night...
    It might be the stress. I had to go get my daughter at camp again yesterday due to her outburst. They won't take her back if she does it again... And I have 10K this Sunday. I haven't done distance lately and I have a Twilight party tonight, Farewell party tomorrow and a birthday party on Sunday. How am I going to get through this?! Bit overwhelmed :'(

    Take a deep breathe and tackle one thing at a time. I'm shooting for the 'best I can do under the circumstances' rather than perfection. 6.5 hour road time after work tonight - spend sat/sun helping at a memorial event for a family member - it's going to be long days on my feet. Probably get home around 10-11ish sunday night (dreading that drive) and back at it. I've decided I can sleep when I'm old and just do one thing at a time..just one. I almost cried last night feeling overwhelmed with it all. You'll get thru it.

    Real GW:135ish (I would like to stay between 140 and 135)

    Goal #1:at the end of August my work is doing a body composition test and I would like to get the points for being in the healthy range of body fat.

    I won't be in here daily, but I still like the check in threads, so will just set mine up for weekly. I track my weight most days, and then do weekly averages (for my own reference) but will just enter my "that day" weight here.

    HW: 163
    CW: 151
    Goal #1 - Steady loss, averaging a min of 1/2 lb/week
    Goal #2 - Daily workout routine min 5x/week (race weekend allows a 1 day exception)
    Goal #3 - Track my food min 3/days/week.

    3/8 - 141.1. Yesterday went well. Plan for today is to not go crazy since it’s a weekend. Will take a long walk with the dog, go to the gym, try to get some chores done at home, and enjoy a date night with my husband tonight and try to moderate my food intake at dinner.

    1/8 - 60.7kg - Really excited to start, and it's so lovely to see how many people are wanting to join in! Today was pretty good. I bought a cookie at lunch (not very healthy) and totally regretted it, but otherwise I was pretty healthy and stuck to my calorie counts. Also currently enjoying my tea instead of snacking which I'm really proud of! Would have been so easy to give in as I'm pretty exhausted but yay for tea! :)
    2/8 - 60.8kg - I started drinking more water so I'm assuming that's why the scale went up even though my count was low yesterday.

    3/8 - 61.1kg - bad day, feeling very discouraged & upset. But hopefully tomorrow will be better
