    I was a little bit surprised but pleased with another loss this week! I have been working on upping my exercise and being more exacting about averaging a 500 calorie deficit everyday. Hard to figure out precisely, but I think I've been more consistent. I was thinking my May goal was maybe a little too hopeful, but three weeks to lose a little over 4 pounds? I just might be able to get there. :)

    CHALLENGE TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS GOAL: Total Loss of 15 pounds to land at 192.0
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT (FROM February 28, 2021): 207.0
    CHALLENGE ENDING WEIGHT:

    Challenge Weight loss goal: I am aiming for a 5 pound per month.




    March 01: 206.6 Off to a good start! It’s not spring here (time without snow) until May where I am at in Northern Michigan. So no walking or outside activity until May as I am a fall risk. I’ll do my best to keep moving inside as best I can. Good luck everyone!
    March 08: 208.2 Wrong direction. Pizza last night during a family meeting showing up.
    March 15: 207.2 Daughter and 3 yr old grandson moved in. I’m not sure for how long. Family troubles. And I thought planning the diet was tough with remodeling team here every day! Wow, this will be challenging!
    March 22: 207.4 Up & Down & topsy turvy all week. Focus…Focus…Focus…
    March 29: 207.0 Better than last week and right back at the challenge starting weight. Now, to focus on actual progress and not yo-yo’s.
    March 31: 208.2 A bit of an unfair way to end the month. It’s up today due to no TMI but it is what it is.


    March Goal: 202.0
    March Actual: 208.2
    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far: 1.2 lb Gain



    April 01: 207.6 This makes me feel much better!
    April 05 206.6 Much better. I am suspecting that I am becoming lactose intolerant. My stomach really gets hard and bloats up after milk, cheese etc. I am weaning off for a test. Happy for this drop on the scale.
    April 12: 207.4 An overnight setback. I made good choices yesterday and got in plenty of steps and exercise through some tough yardwork but my calories and carbs were over due to eating 3 meals instead of my normal 2. Hopefully this will adjust and I will get my 206 back soon!
    April 19: 206.0 An overnight drop helped. Travel today with dinner out so the rest of the week will be filled with movement to offset!
    April 26: 204.0 A ton of yard work after multiple trees were cut down has really burned the calories. Starving today but will try to keep the meals light.
    April 30: 206.2 This is a more realistic true weight for me. Two pounds down in April. I’ll take it!


    April Goal: 203.2
    April Actual: 206.2
    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far: 0.8 lbs Lost



    May 01: 206.6 Late night hunger leads to early morning scale shock! Better days are ahead!
    May 03: 207.4 A horrible glucose difficult week. Tweak slowly, tweak slowly. Tread lightly. I am going to try to sneak up on this weight without tipping the glucose scale. Wish me luck!
    May 10: 208.8 My 61st birthday. I know things can slow down with age including weight loss, but weight gain is inexcusable! My gift to me today will be to stay on course, one day at a time! My birthday celebrating will be next Sunday so I should be able to stay on course today.

    With only two days until weigh-in, I'll be lucky to get back to my weight last Monday! :frowning:
    I'm starting to regret altering my goal so aggressively. :neutral:

    But hopefully, if I stick to my diet and exercise, I'll see some positive change soon. :D
    Onward and upward, er, well, downward in this case.

    April 19: 206.0 An overnight drop helped. Travel today with dinner out so the rest of the week will be filled with movement to offset!
    April 26: 204.0 A ton of yard work after multiple trees were cut down has really burned the calories. Starving today but will try to keep the meals light.
    April 30: 206.2 This is a more realistic true weight for me. Two pounds down in April. I’ll take it!


    April Goal: 203.2
    April Actual: 206.2
    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far: 0.8 lbs Lost



    May 01: 206.6 Late night hunger leads to early morning scale shock! Better days are ahead!
    May 03: 207.4 A horrible glucose difficult week. Tweak slowly, tweak slowly. Tread lightly. I am going to try to sneak up on this weight without tipping the glucose scale. Wish me luck!
    May 10: 208.8 My 61st birthday. I know things can slow down with age including weight loss, but weight gain is inexcusable! My gift to me today will be to stay on course, one day at a time! My birthday celebrating will be next Sunday so I should be able to stay on course today.
    May 17: 206.8 Not too bad after multiple celebrations this past week. I am almost back to starting weight. I don’t see myself losing the 5 pounds I had hoped for but any loss would be a plus. Working toward that at the very least.
