    Not much, but at least it's a loss 🤗

    It’s almost a pound so that a very nice loss!

    Hi Team.

    Linda my weigh in..

    I am on holidays since last week and have poorly feeding as well as snacking at night out of sheer tiredness whilst unable to sleep

    Cw 245.6

    28HAVEITALL

    My usual weigh in day is Sunday but won't be around this Sunday.

    Thanks

    I totally understand the eating at night when unable to sleep.

    Good evening all.
    Check in:
    Steps - 5899. Light walking to keep me awake today.
    Calories - 2388 or close. Gave in a bit on licorice. Still good on calories.
    Exercise - nope. Walk in the morning though. Daughter wants to hit the gym tomorrow night.

    Thanks for the comments. They help.

    Walking is good.

    I am excited. I have a week to get my eating sorted out.

    For those of you that use a protein powder, what brand do you use? I am looking for a chocolate flavour and something that does not leave an after taste.

    I use Isopure it comes in unflavored, dutch chocolate, vanilla and infusions (tropical) at Walmart

    Thanks. I ordered som triple chocolate mutant from Amazon. If I don’t like it I will try this one. I am going to start making protein shakes for my evening snack to see if helps with my eating. You put protein powder in your coffee or was that someone else?

    Weigh Day Thursday 😐
    PW: 228.2
    CW: 230.6

    I guess three days of tracking and exercise hasn't made up for my several weeks off-plan. Looking forward to a loss next week.

    I love this idea but I think 21 lbs is too ambitious for me. But I would really like to try for 11 lbs which will still be hard considering since January I've just lost around 9 lbs. Maybe this will help me stay on track through birthday, anniversary, thanksgiving, Xmas, etc!

    Crazy busy week here - took daughter back to college over the weekend, and my school started Wednesday. Looks like I'm ready to bump up my step goal; I will give that some thought.

    You are on fire. Stop sending the pounds you are losing to London. I keep finding them. 😂
