Think I'm the only guy here. But no biggie. I've lost 18 of 25. Had a bit of a hiatus in calorie counting but getting back at it.
Victory: lost enough that I'm able to hang with mybriding group again up hills.
Challenge: Key for weightloss for me is forgoing alcohol completely. It's not the alcohol cals but the combination of the sugar in it and release of inhibition (even one glass of wine) results in me over snacking. And, when I got to 18 down started slacking on no alcohol.
So...trying to give it up for Lent to get a big push for last 5-7 lbs. Here we go.

1. Victory: Finally, the scale budged with a 0.5 lbs loss and I'm 7 lbs to my doctor's goal of my ideal weight. It's a snail crawl but I will take it!!!
2. Challenge: Weight fluctuations due to emotional overeating especially stress. . Bloating due to menstruation, temporary but disheartening.
3. Since such a SLOW pace, I can't be fixated on scale numbers. I need to focus on positives of smaller wardrobe sizes, compliments recieved, more definition in my muscles, looking and feeling younger, etc. Also, joining Ultimate Accountability Challenge group on mfp has made me more mindful of budgeting calories to plan for special outings or accommodate a stressed out meal.
