    Challenge Goal weight: 192.9



    05/01 – 207.7 Good luck everyone!
    05/06 – 204.9 Traveling today, which is never good in the food OR exercise category. I will try to maintain some degree of self-control and dignity however, being from a very very small town, entering the city is mind-blowing and temptation is on every corner. I’ve got to stay cool.
    05/09 – 204.8 Making progress but traveling today which will be a set-back in both diet and exercise. I’ll work hard to mitigate any damage all week. It’s my birthday on Mother’s Day so I am going to give myself the present of progress!
    05/13 - 205.1 Notsogood after travel this past week but I’m back and stronger than ever!
    05/20 - 204.3 Better, but still not up to my standards. Working harder is in my future.
    05/27 - 205.0 Better than my starting weight but higher than my previous weigh-in so my plan is to turn this ship back around! I guess I may have indulged a bit too much for the US holiday weekend? No excuses, time to make more changes!
    05/31 – 206.8 A bad weight following travel. More travel expected on the 1st. Ugg. All days in-between I am staying as mindful as my will allows. Most days good.


    06/01 – 206.8 Good Luck in June Everyone!
    06/03 – 208.8 After Travel weigh-in. I’ll work to move this in the right direction again Likity-Split!
    06/10 – 211.0 More travel this past week and more poor choices. Turning this train around!

    June 8: 135.6 lb (-8.6 lb)
    June 15: 135.6 lb (-8.6 lb) I ate around maintenance at least 4 days this week due to headaches. Hoping a bit of that is water retention but it makes sense I didn't lose much (any). But yay I didn't gain. This week should be better now that i have a pillow thats okay. I was down to 134.8 at one point. My average calories were 1700 for the week so I do strongly suspect water retention!

    I've been getting up early and walking for 60 minutes to make sure I hit my 10K step target each day BEFORE the heat sets in. It's supposed to be around 90°F for the next 2 weeks. I live in a small, but densely populated city, and I found this park that's about a mile away. So, I have been rolling out of bed, walking over to the park, and have really enjoyed just being in nature through there with a good audiobook. Plan is to keep it up. Feeling great and it's rewarding and encouraging to see results each week!
