    I've somehow managed to get close to my lowest (206) weight without exercising. I've just been eating only what I've logged and for once it seems to be working. Now, TOM is supposed to show up in a few days and I'm not looking forward to that. I've noticed that my sodium intake has been a lot less, so that may contribute to the loss, so im going to keep watching my sodium intake (Ive been at about half of what mfp suggests) and see what happens...especially thru that time of the month.

    I haven't been on the treadmill in a few days, Id gotten blisters on my feet so I've been giving them time to heal. But I think im going to start back up tonight.

    Ive also recently downloaded the HasFit app. Has anyone bought the year subscription? I see that they have many free workouts on the app (and youtube) but if you pay monthly/yearly they have like 30 day plans and stuff. Id really like to do that, but if anyone has any feedback that'd be awesome!

    You are doing great! 👏👏👏 I should also watch my sodium. Thank you for mentioning it!😊

    Hello All!

    Well, I blew it and went up, satisfied some cravings and trying to get back on track. Doing exercise on bike and walking. Not happy though. We're moving Monday finally! :s

    @Making_Impossible_Possible Good Going!

    Hi all
    I have had a deliberate maintenance week. Lockdown restrictions slightly easing in the uk. Went to see my mum and the weather has been lovely and so I just wanted some ice cream and wine .My deficit is so small that it’s easy to wipe it out and so better not to be stressed hence diet break.

    Scale up to 137 but I expected that. Will go back to a deficit on Monday. I currently have a small hangover from that 3rd glass of wine. I just needed to let off a little steam after being stuck at home mainly since the end of March.
  • my4570my4570 Member Posts: 8 Member Member Posts: 8 Member
    This week was an accidental maintenance week for me...I’m okay though because I’m flexible on my goal and just need to lose at least 4-5 more pounds by August 31st to meet my first goal.

    I bought a few new tops online and they look really good and I feel like I’ve made a lot of non-scale goals in terms of confidence. I’ve hated wearing shorts and tank tops even when I was really young because I hold a lot of weight in my upper arms (and have broad shoulders) as well as inner thighs, and I have a lot of stretch marks on my thighs because I’ve been anywhere from 88-135 pounds within 7 years.

    I also woke up today at 7 am to go on a 4 mile run! I ran every day in March (but was eating poorly and wasn’t focused on weight loss goals) but stopped for all of April and May. I’m surprised I was able to build up to 4 miles again after about 5 runs within the past two weeks.

    Everyone else who maintained or gained this week - we got this ! Don’t beat yourself up and just keep going and be proud of the progress you already made! And everyone who lost - amazing too ! I’m excited to see what July looks like for all of us :)

    Hope everyone is doing well! I agree we should definitely extend the group! I love the accountability, motivation and support everyone offers here! This is an amazing group and I enjoy reading about our struggles and our accomplishments!! We are in this together and it isn't such a lonely road! We all have similar issues at one point or another. I'll make my July goal 8-10lbs. I have definitely changed my lifestyle and eating habits over the past 2 months. I feel like that has helped. I did feel like I was at a standstill for a bit which is always discouraging. I tried not to let it get me down and just kept on keeping on and it paid off. Here's to another successful month for ALL of us!! 🥂

    Back from camping, it was really nice to disconnect.
    I don't think I was to far off calorie count wise- however was really heavy on the sodium, and starchy carbs. My pants in general required me to tighten the belt two notches, so I think its water weight. I even resisted eating s'mores!
    I hope you all had a wonderful week:) will be scrolling back to check on you all.

    @jewelelainecasey - you are doing awesome :)! you inspire me
    @Ayesha0624 - you are so close to your goal! You will make it for sure :) how exciting
    @annieu613 -totally get it, diet breaks are so important mentally :)!
    @PatriciaNeves2015 - you got this, it happens to everyone I think when there are big life changes.I hope the move is going smoothly :)!
    @Making_Impossible_Possible no feedback on that app, but I think my cousin has it so I will ask her and circle back. Good job watching your sodium, I must admit I need to work on that.
    @brittgreenlikethecolor88 -you are seriously crushing it!!
    @cupcakesandproteinshakes a diet break sounds like the right approach, my deficit is similar so I get it! Hope the wine and visit were good :)!
    @my4570 you can do it! I also cant wait to see how we do this month!
    @Paz922 glad to hear the concussion is subsiding!!
  • Paz922Paz922 Member Posts: 256 Member Member Posts: 256 Member
    Happy Monday!

    I gained .4 this week. It was not easy not being able to exercise as much because of my concussion. I lost a total of 11.6 lb. Thank you so much to everyone that is in this group. I feel that I am not alone.

    I weigh 148.8 right now and I would like to be at 140 by August 31st.

    I would like to suggest the new name to be "10 down by August 31st" I have to wait for customer service to change it. I think losing 5 lbs a month could be a good goal. What do you think?

    Oh it’s 1 July. I’ve lost a pound and a half since I joined this challenge. I’m 135.4.

    If we’re extending it to the end of July then I guess 133 would be a good goal for me.


    Better buckle down a bit more.....

    Hoping the gyms in the uk reopen soon I’m a bit fed up with lifting at home and on line step classes.
