    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.
    16 down 36 weeks till 2022 🎉

    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 Starting Weight: 245 (1/2/2019) BMI 43.4
    2020 Starting Weight: 235 (1/1/2020) BMI 41.6
    2021 Starting Weight: 212 (1/1/2021) BMI 37.6
    Goal for 2021: <200 BMI 35 (Dr set target before next physical)
    Stretch Goal for 2021: <170 (Overweight instead of obese)
    Current weight: 206.8 BMI 36.5 lowest this year 205.7 in Feb and saw 205.8 last week1
    2021 weight loss: 5.2 lost & regained 6 lbs this year ARGHHHHH Working to get back down
    Total weight lost: 38.2

    Past week's successes: Stress, lack of exercise, party for DD’s 1 year anniversary all led to me losing the 205.8 I saw on the scale. However, I felt great in my dress from last year’s wedding since I had to tailor it down a few sizes!!! I looked much better in pictures :)
    This week's challenges: Exercising 3 dogs (I have DD’s 2 puppies while she is on honeymoon) as well as myself and getting back into routine of eating healthy again.

    1.7 pound gain this week. Not proud, but not aggravated either. I gave myself the week to “enjoy” foods. I ate pizza to excess, wolfed down an entire Jimmy John’s sub, and pigged out on Chinese food.

    Once again I felt uncomfortably full and guilty afterwards. I know I can enjoy these foods, but simply cut down the portions, but I have portion control issues with my favorite foods—potato chips are the perfect example!

    Anyway, I’m back on my logging wagon... logging all of it... and letting the guilt go...
    Just now I enjoyed a portion of chips...and I’ll have a large glass of water.

    My next hurdle is breaking the 200 pound barrier. This is when I start to self sabotage... but I’ve got a million projects to finish...and when I’m distracted with fun things to do, I snack less.

    So glad we’re all on this journey together! Together we can do anything.❤️

    Happy Wednesday!

    Current weight: 229.6 lbs (4/16/2021)

    This week's successes: My husband and I had a brunch date this week and I managed to fit that restaurant food into my calorie budget for that day.

    This week's challenges: Oops, I accidentally planned for us to have pasta with creamy, meaty sauce and a dearth of vegetables basically every night this week. Not the worst, I'm still fitting it into my budget, just not the most balanced nutrition this week.
