    47 yr old female

    Starting weight: 122.2 kg
    Goal weight: 85kg

    This week's successes: none, tom and I ate over calories everyday, worked out almost every day, but I did not log my calories correct. I left a lot of food off, just giving up. (not good)
    I really went off the rails, and my gain really shows that. I'm going back to basics and heading
    back to the Sylvia Ullback diet, which I know works for me. My body is that type where all I have to do
    is look at food and I gain weight. Comes with age I guess. I'm really sad about my huge gain, BUT I'd rather get
    back on the horse and keep going, otherwise I will gain every kilo I worked so hard to lose these past
    3 months.

    This week's challenges: Stick to the Sylvia diet moving forward.

    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    A pound a week seems reasonable
    I need to quit losing the same pounds over and over. If you are tired of starting over, STOP giving up.

    Past week's successes: Trying to think of anything that I can mark as a success of the past couple of weeks … and falling short. Need more walking, water, less food & carbs. The stress of the last 2 weeks planning my DD’s one year anniversary party as done damage.
    The week’s challenge: At the fishing camp and not home so most of the planning & shopping are on hold for the party. Need to take this time for myself and walk, drink water, plan my meals.
