    Total loss for August -

    8/7/19:
    I have cut my calories per day from probably 2000-2500 (before 6/10/19 I wasn't paying attention at all) to about 1200-1500 per day. I'm having a really hard time fitting exercise into my schedule with 3 kids - 3yrs & 10 month old twins. I'm working really hard on my food intake and getting really discouraged. I'm currently debating about trying IF but I don't want to try taking on too many restrictions at once and getting more discouraged and giving up on everything entirely.

    I love reading everyone's posts.
    @nic0023 Wow, almost 7 pounds in a week! How did you do that?
    @lalabank You are rocking it girl.
    @realgirl177 More than 100 pounds lost and already 5 pounds this month. Congratulations.

    I am not sure, but I think I might have lost a bit of water weight that was hiding weight loss. We'll find out next week! =)

    August Loss - ???

    Thoughts: Lots of weight fluctuation in the last week. Happy that there's no overall gain and the trend weight is dropping. I feel back on track with my goals. Still slacking on strength training, but getting more walks in.

    Walk #2 with husband last night. We're pushing for 3-4 per week as a goal. It's big progress for him, and it's helping me because I'm still horribly chained to desk. I'm a federal employee and we're coming up on end of fiscal year, so there's a big flurry of activity.

    Sister in law is meeting me this evening for another 2 miler - hoping theweather holds out for us.

    August Game Plan & Goals: (Stats from Fitbit 7 Day Summary)
    • Continue weekly meal planning
    • Log daily in MFP - focus on daily calorie deficit goal of 500
    • No calorie intake after 8pm
    • Hit Fitbit step goal of 5000 - 3687 ⬆
    • Hit active minutes goal of 25 minutes daily - 33 ⬇
    • Hit exercise goal of 6 days - 4 ⬆

    Progress: (4 week graph)
