    Current weight: 183.4 lb
    Week weight loss: .6 lb
    Total weight loss: 35lb

    This week's successes: I worked out every day and stayed within calories goal.

    This week's challenges: Extremely frustrated I didn’t lose more with how hard I worked. It’s going to be hard to stay on track this week.

    I also only lost .6 this week, so discouraging. But like you I have lost about 32 lbs so I am not going to give it up!
    We gotta hang in there!

    Week 32. One-derland! Made some goal changes as my progress stalled after meeting a few of them (I now fit in what was once my tightest clothes in the closet, I’m no longer obese, etc.), but there's 16 pounds to go for the challenge, and 27 to go for my goal weight.

    Starting weight: 233 lbs
    Goal weight: 170 lbs
    Current weight: 197 lbs
    Total weight lost: 36 lbs, -3.1 pounds since last month

    This month's successes: A new Bike! Well, new to me. Much better suited for the—now—50+ mile rides I subject it. Generally staying within my target calorie goals (which is a polite way of saying I’ve not been as strict as I should be). While the scale is showing only modest changes, I did lose 5 inches off my measurements (18” in total).
    This month's challenges: A couple weeks of no progress and a lack of strength training at our, still closed, community gyms prevents me from leveraging large muscle exercises into my weight loss routine.

    @Leezy55 I dropped most of my weight 4 years ago with simple CICO. I actually maintained between 129 - 134 until last October when I broke my arm. That accident was followed by a lot of instability in my daily life, including the death of my Mom. I'm having trouble getting back into a calorie deficit mind set. Each day starts a new beginning.

    I can relate I have had a really hard time wrapping my mind around this weight loss thing lately. Back in the day it was focus, mind is made up, no problem lets get after it. Anymore it is a real struggle mentally.
