    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.
    42 weeks till 2022 🎉

    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 Starting Weight: 245 (1/2/2019) BMI 43.4

    Highest Weight:192lbs
    Starting weight:174.7lbs (Jan. 13, 2021)
    Goal weight: ~135lbs (5'3", 23.9BMI)

    Jan. 13: 174.7
    Jan. 19: 168.8 (-5.9lbs)
    Jan. 26: 168.4 (-0.4lb)
    January loss: -6.3lbs(mostly water weight)

    Feb. 2: 167.5 (-0.9lbs)
    Feb. 9: 166.5 (-1lb)
    Feb. 16: 164.7 (-1.8lbs)
    Feb. 23: 162.6 (-2.1lbs)
    February loss: -4.9lbs

    Mar. 16: 160.6 (-1.3lbs)
    Mar. 23: 160.5 (-0.1lbs)
    Mar. 30: 161.2 (+0.7lbs)
    March loss: -1.4lbs

    CW: 161.2lbs
    Total weight lost: 13.5 lbs

    This week's successes: I tried to enjoy my days, went rollerskating, got three strength training sessions in, got some work done.
    This week's challenges: My weight has fluctuated between 162.8 and 159.8 (other than one outlier of 164.1) for the entire month of March. But, looking back at my data, my average calories consumed is actually closer to 2,200/day, rather than my goal of 2,000; which only gives me a deficit of about 300 cals. So, this is a good wake-up call to be more consistent. I am okay with a slow loss, though. I'm not hating my life because of a super big deficit, and I would rather that than a faster rate of loss.

    Past week Successes: I have hashimoto's and have been experimenting with going gluten free this week. It is mainly to help with exhaustion and brain fog but I have been pretty much gluten free since Monday.
    Past week Challenges: I have been super frustrated with gaining and losing the same 2 pounds over and over again for the past 3 months. I know that means I am more in maintenance mode than loosing but it is so annoying.

    This week's challenges: I’m in the last two weeks of my undergrad! Trying to stay active and eat well while finishing everything up will be challenging. I’ve chosen to eat at maintenance for the next two weeks to be nice to myself, and since I’m close to halfway to my goal weight.
