    Daily Goals:

    🌱Drink @ least 90 ounces of water
    🌱Plan meals and log in advance
    🌱Log honestly and consistently
    🌱Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌼 Weigh in each morning
    🌼 Post each day under this challenge
    🌼 Continue weight lifting.

    8/1/22-167.2 lbs :-( Elliptical 214 minutes for 14.22 miles
    8/2/22-168.6 lbs :-( The extra carbs and sodium show. Elliptical 233 minutes for 16.47 miles.
    8/3/22-171.8 lbs :-( Still climbing from the extra carbs and sodium while I was off. Was in the BR almost ever half hour today peeing at work. Hopefully the scale will start back down.
    8/4/22-168.4 lbs :-) Heading the right way.
    8/5/22-166.8 lbs - Off today did 159 minutes on my Elliptical but then it just stopped, couldn't move it. I'm hoping it just needs some oil. 2 of my sons worked on it. Cleaned and oiled it. Ok right now, hope that was it.
    8/6/22-168.2 lbs
    8/7/22-167.2 lbs Off today. Did 180 minutes on the Elliptical. Screeched some after 2 hours and then hard to move then eased up for awhile then got stiff again and I stopped. I'm hoping the bearings aren't bad. Found a listing for a place that fixes exercise equipment. Have to call from work and maybe they can come look at it Friday on my day off. Have a family party Saturday and work picnic Sunday. I have put over 2000+ miles on it since 1/3/22. I'm the only one that uses it. I bought it in 2010 for $600-800. The ones comparable to it now are like $1200-1600.

    8/8/22-169.2 lbs
    8/9/22-170.2 lbs I talked with the exercise repair guy. He can't come till Tuesday. :-( So I guess I need to do some different exercise.

    @Niknacfitness Welcome! Anyone is welcome join anytime! 😁

    @TwistedSassette Those are awesome goals! I would whine to my mom and say “I’ve only lost 5 pounds” and she would say “okay let’s go to the store and you can carry around a 5 pound bag of potatoes and see how only they are” lol
    I love the banana thing!

    @ashleycarole Thank you! Some days I think “you’re still obese” but mostly I’m grateful for the weight to be gone. Part of the journey!

    Original start weight: 293
    August start weight: 172.2
    August goal weight: 160-165 (maintenance range)

    Aug 1 - 172.2 (Back from vacation and feeling good. August is going to be a great month!)
    Aug 2 - 169.6 (Busy first day back to work but stayed positive. Ate well and focused on my step goal.)
    Aug 3 - 167.6 (Dentist after work and then I'll hopefully find time for a Peloton ride or another walk, or both!)
    Aug 4 - 166.2 (Have stress at work. Afterwards I will decompress with some kind of exercise. Last night I chose to do upper body strength as my exercise of choice and it felt great.)
    Aug 5 - 165.8 (Found time to ride the Peloton last night and it felt good. Off to the lake for the weekend as soon as work is done.)
    Aug 6 - 164.6 (Nice sunny day here today. I am going to aim for 10,000 steps which will require 1-2 longer walks around our lakeside trailer park. We have a bigger dinner tonight my husband is making for our trailer friends.)
    Aug 7 - 165.8 (Yesterday I underperformed on my fitness and food plans so the return to the higher weight is completely expected. Tonight we return from the lake and have supper with friends before heading home.)
    Aug 8 - 167 (Yesterday we came back from the lake, walked to and from a friend's house for a pizza supper, and then I did some yoga and strength. A good day.)
    Aug 9 - 166.2
    Aug 10 - 167.6 (Having some tough days at work and feeling the stress. Had a good day of food and exercise today. One day at a time!)
