    Oops, forgot to post last week!


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

    January loss: -6.3lbs(mostly water weight)
    February loss: -4.9lbs
    March loss: -1.4lbs

    April 6: 158.6 (-2.6lbs)
    April 13: 158.5 (-0.1lbs)
    April 20: 160.4 (+1.9lbs)
    April 27: 158.2 (-2.2lbs)
    April loss: -0.4lbs

    CW: 158.2lbs
    Total weight lost: 16.5 lbs

    This week's successes: I finished my two-week diet break on Sunday and I'm really happy with how it all worked out! I pretty much just maintained for the month of April, and I am totally okay with that. When I stop losing, I will have to start maintaining, so I'm glad I got some practice with that! I also signed up for 4 personal training sessions to learn proper form for lifts and I'm really enjoying that.

    This week's challenges: I haven't been getting as much protein as I would like every day. I have to work to make sure I'm incorporating enough. I'm also not super excited about being in a deficit again. I'm not hungry or anything, but the weather is finally warming up and I just want to be hanging out outside and having picnics and such! I just don't feel like thinking about what I'm eating all the time. Ah well, I know I can always maintain until I feel like losing again if I'm struggling with it.

    Happy end of April, everyone!

    @gillexplores you should look into nutritional yeast flakes. I use it to season my veggies and eggs. There is 5g of protein per tbs. It's not for everyone, I think it can interfere with some medications and is not recommended for diabetics, but I love it. Hope this helps

    Goal weight for 2021: 196
    Current weight: 227.6 lbs (4/16/2021)
    Total weight lost: 19.8 lbs (-2.0 since last week)

    This week's successes: My husband and I have started doing some stretches/hip mobility work before bed and we did that every night this week. It's amazing how much it's helped after only a few days.

    This week's challenges: I found myself wanting a snack and falling into old, maladaptive thought patterns more often than usual this week. I did manage to stay the course and stick to the plan, but it was difficult.

    @StacieBugPrude I totally have some nutritional yeast in my cupboard but just don’t think about it. That’s a great reminder, thank you!

    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.
