    My name is Donna and I am 61 years old. I am from the Midwest USA. 5’ 5
    I will be keeping the Thursday weigh-in (in addition to the 1st and last day of the month for the full tally)
    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

    Original Starting Weight (2016) 253.0
    July start Weight: 196.4 (Weight on June 30th, 2021)
    July Goal Weight: 191.4 (5 lb loss)
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 145-155 (I’ll know when I get there).

    July 01 : 197.6 Not such a great start. Focusing on a great finish! Good Luck Everyone and Thanks Samantha for continuing this challenge.
    July 08 : 198.4 A couple of days of Thai Food. Hopefully it is water retention that I will pee out over the next couple of days. 
    July 15: 196.8 Progress. The scale is going up and down all week, but it is going lower and trending lower too. Every time I touch a new weight, it becomes attainable, even if it wavers. Next week will be even better, I am still feeling very committed.
    July 22: 194.2 Landed on progress this past week. I’m grateful because there were a few weak moments that I’m not super proud of. Overall, I just tried to stay focused as best I could. The 5 pound loss seems illusive at this time, but I’ll take any progress this week. Every pound lost is such a chore at my age!
    July 29: 194.2 A bit of an up & down week but everytime the weight tried to get away, I stretch my proverbial hands out and drag it back toward me and the better place I am working hard to keep myself in. I’m still the driver and I am steering clear of backsliding! Travel today with dinner out may cause some water retention. I am hoping it does not adversely affect my final weigh-in as I will not allow one meal to change my course permanently!
    July 31 : 192.4 4 pound loss this month. Not quite goal but I’m still very pleased! See you next round!

    Total Weight Loss for July: 4 pounds Lost

    Final Challenge Thoughts: Happy with progress. Finally confident in being in Onederland.

    I am off to a good start this month. I hadn't been working too hard at it the last couple months, but now my appetite has settled and I feel more confident in being able to eat at or below my calorie requirement.

    Not too sure what this spike is as I’m not yet ovulating or near my TOM. I think this may be that I’ve recently started weight training again and I may be having some muscle repair. Let’s see what the scale says tomorrow.
