    Starting weight: 247.4 lbs (1/1/2021)
    Goal weight for 2021: 196
    Current weight: 231.4 lbs (4/9/2021)
    Total weight lost: 16 lbs (-2 since last week)

    This week's successes: I did my first Youtube kickboxing workout this week. It was challenging, but the hardest thing was really following the step-and-punch/kick sequence more than the actual moves themselves - coordination has never been my strongest suit, so I'm also hoping to see a general improvement there.

    This week's challenges: The lunches I made for this week turned out pretty light (cabbage rolls, only about 150cal for 2 of them), so I've had a LOT of room for snacks, which is a double-edged sword. I rounded out the cabbage rolls with stuff like hard-boiled eggs, oranges, and protein bars/peanut butter crackers. I've done well enough this week but every step of it was pretty fraught. I caught myself watching the clock and counting down minutes until it was time for a snack, because I decided to try spreading my lunch out throughout the day. I'm not sure if it's really working or not.

    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    A pound a week seems reasonable

    Starting weight: 247.4 lbs (1/1/2021)
    Goal weight for 2021: 196
    Current weight: 229.4 lbs (4/16/2021)
    Total weight lost: 18 lbs (-2 since last week)

    This week's successes: I was able to preplan the whole week, soup to nuts, snacks included, and that really helped curb impulsive snacking, I think. Since every calorie was already spoken for, it changed the question from "what can I nosh on?" to "when can I nosh on the [crackers/orange/cheese/whatever] that I planned to eat today?"

    This week's challenges: This week went pretty smoothly, all things considered.
