    Starting weight: 247.4 lbs (1/1/2021)
    Goal weight for 2021: 196
    Current weight: 225.7 lbs (5/28/2021)
    Total weight lost: 21.7 lbs (+/-???lb since last week)

    I think I missed a couple of check-ins this month, it's been a little crazy. I'm still on track for 52 lbs in 52 weeks, so I feel pretty good about that. I also successfully maintained while out of town for a week, so that's good. It looks like my actual TDEE is in the 2700ish cal/day range, so I can comfortably lose eating about 2300 cal/day, for now. I guess I really do have more muscle under all this than I thought.

    I'd love to join this challenge!

    Starting weight: 215 (1/1/21)

    Goal weight: 140-145

    Current weight: 185.8

    Total weight lost: 29.2

    This week's successes:
    Oddly enough, my success this week was allowing myself to take a day off from walking. I usually walk 3+ miles a day and haven't missed a day in almost 2 months. But I wasn't feeling well yesterday and so I allowed myself a self-care day. Normally I would feel guilty about taking a day off as if it were a failure, but this year I'm realizing that self care & acceptance is just as important as exercise is.

    This week's challenge:
    Trying to stay at or under my calorie goal with it being that TOM and eating out twice in one week

    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.
