    Starting weight: 256
    Current weight: 206
    (Yay - 50 lbs lost!)
    Goal for May: 200 (lose 1.5 lbs per week)

    My goals for the next two weeks:
    - get 1 hour of exercise a day, 6 days per week
    - Add more protein to meals to feel fuller and cut down on hunger snacking.

    Biggest obstacle/Challenge:
    - I think as I have increased to duration and intensity of exercise (which I am really enjoying) I haven’t made and adjustment to my diet or calories. The past two weeks I have just been hungry! I was frustrated from myself for adding in extra snacks (I’d been really good about avoiding that in the past). But now I’m thinking these cravings are not just poor willpower, they are my body’s reaction to the change in exercise because even with the deviations to my eating plan, I lost 3 lbs in the past two weeks. So, I’m going to adjust my calories and macros to give myself a few more calories per day and increased protein and I’ll see how things go.

    Good luck everyone - we’ve got this!!

    My goal is to just try to get in exersize somehow. With my broken foot.
    I have to carry my dog everywhere since Monday. She couldnt walk Sunday night. Found out she has 2 bulging disc. Effecting her back feet. So I'm getting upper arm exercise.
    To cut back on my food to loose again.
    Basically I'm just trying to survive my stressful life.

    I really goofed up yesterday. Last year in July I was 235lb. I had lost 85 lbs. Then I had my knee surgery. I was unable to walk for 3mo. I started to gain slowly. Then 7 weeks ago I broke my foot. Grounding me again. I have gained 17 lbs. Back . I really cant afford to gain this weight back. I came so far. I really need to see the numbers moving the other way. When the gyms open back up, I will be able to get back to my water aerobics.

    Agreed - at least you maintained and if you keep it up eventually the scale will notice! Focus on those non scale victories in the meantime and don’t get discouraged - you’ve got this!

    I did pretty well these two weeks - started at 206 and am at 203.5. My goal was 203, so it’s not exactly perfect, but I’ll take it.
