    So perhaps last week was a mix of everything with TOM as I started this weekend. No idea.

    I worked hard to eat 1200 calories yesterday. Saturday was great (1300 calories) given that we went to a birthday party. I think my allergies were working together with my desire to keep the calories down because we only stayed at the party (in a rural area) for a short while before my husband told his family that we are done for the night due to my allergies.

    Additionally, we went to the gym on Saturday afternoon and had a good workout.

    I am glad I set a 3 lb loss goal. On to October everyone!

    I have noticed that I am losing a bit of muscle in my arms so I will step away from cardio a bit and add strength exercises again. Initially, I started with a mix of strength exercises and cardio which I have learned leads to slow weight loss [10 lbs in 7 months] but I do love my small muscle gains.

    @syreina lol NVM Just saw what you were talking about :# BTW keep up the great work any helpful tips? You seem to be doing a great job. My problem is that I typically lose a significant amount of weight fast but have trouble keeping it down or losing more even though I stay active and try my best to keep calories down.
