    Weight lost/gained this week: 0lb
    Weight lost/gained this month: 0lb

    Successes/struggles this week: I've more or less recovered from falling down the stairs a few weeks back, enough to exercise anyway, but managed to get a really nasty sunburn across my back and shoulders instead which is again limiting how much exercise I can do. Coupled with comfort eating, it hasn't been a very successful week.
    I've been walking a lot, though, while my daughter is on school break. We often walk for several miles over the day. It's just the picnics and ice cream that is ruining the good work. ;)

    Down 3.6 pounds!! I struggled with going out a few times during the last few weeks, and saying no to certain foods. But I see the scale still moved, and I kept up with my 4.5 mile walks! Woot!!!
    Sorry for the late post, it's been s busy few weeks. Keep going everyone!!!

    Successes/struggles this week: Upped my calories this week by 150 as I felt I wasn't eating enough as doing two or three spin classes and a body pump class. Bringing more carbs back in due to the increased exercise so diet bit more varied :smile:
    Going to keep to same calories this week then maybe up them a little next week.

    Weight lost/gained this month: -1.15kg

    Successes/struggles this week: I was at 73.5kg yesterday morning, but unfortunately I overate significantly in the evening. Regardless, I broke the two week barrier of clean eating. I'm disappointed that I didn't get much beyond that (16 days) as I was interested in finding out when and if the withdrawal symptoms subside again. Anyway, here's to another two weeks and further beyond. I'm currently going to the gym over the summer break, too, but mainly for muscle maintenance and stress relief as I'm solely counting on diet to lose the weight.

    Weight lost/gained this week: -1.75 lb
    Weight lost/gained this month: -2.75 lb

    Successes/struggles this week: Really pleased to be back in the 10 stone bracket, even if at 10 st 13.75 lbs I'm only 1/4 lb off being 11 stone! On the whole I've been fairly good this week, although I've been a bit lax at tracking my calories on here. I ate some bad stuff (quiche, tortilla chips, pizza etc) at a friend's birthday lunch on Monday but thankfully was fairly restrained on quantity. I even baked a cake but have just eaten a small slice each day. Today I am wearing non-maternity jeans for the first time in nearly 18 months (my baby is nearly 9 months old) - that feels good!

    Well done to everyone who's stuck with the challenge so far. Halfway there now!

    Successes/struggles this week: pleased with the result as that's in five days and I haven't always tracked brilliantly but I've definitely got better as the days have gone on and I'm feeling really motivated so fingers crossed! I've started Gillian's 30 day shred as well, only done it the last two days but planning on keeping that up and hoping it will help. Although I think my 8lb goal may be a little hopeful!

    Well done everyone!

    my birthday is 16th of August, by then I want to weigh below 80 kg. If it happens before that day, fine with me!

    1st August: 81.4
    8th August: 82
    15th August: 80.9
    22nd August:
    28th August:

    Weight lost/gained this week: 1.1
    Weight lost/gained this month: 0.5

    Very happy about these challenges because they make me believe in myself when I am having a bit of a low. Overall, I can see the right tenedency - 5 kg less than 2 months ago.
    This week ahead doesn't seem too dangerous so far - let's see how it goes!

    I don't know what is going on exactly, I did proper workouts and I had one rather bad day, but for most other days I stayed within my calories. Feel puffed up so I "hope" that most of the weight that added on / won't leave is water retention and will finally disappear soon! Frustrated!

    was a tricky week (and the weekend will be, birthday party) but lost half a kg and that's great. I would have wished to get to be under 80 by tomorrow but I guess this is not going to happen. well, then sometime soon. my motivation is back and even though I will allow myself party fun and -food tonight and tomorrow I will be back on track Monday.

    31st August:

    Week 1
    Weight lost/gained this week: -1
    Weight lost/gained this month: -1

    Successes: I have been doing extra exercise for the GoTs Challenge and have surprised myself by how much I can actually do.
    Struggles: getting in my 10,000 steps every day, because of the time I have spent doing Strength and Flexibility workouts and other tasks for the Challenge.

    Week 2
    Weight lost/gained this week: 0
    Weight lost/gained this month: -1

    Successes: I was doing fine due to all the extra working out for Game of Thrones and was 174 on Monday last.
    Struggles: Suffering some knee pain, so had to ease off on walking for the rest of the week and cut my steps down to 5,000. Scales were not kind this morning. But I am upbeat about it as it's probably water retention or such like as I overdid the sodium the last few days. I will keep an eye on that in future.

    I have a family wedding next Tuesday, but there are still 2 weeks of the challenge to go and I am determined to lose those two pounds. :)

    Successes/struggles this week: It was generally a good week - broke into the 100's this week! I'm really excited and motivated to keep going towards my goal. I struggled a bit with exercising enough. I had two good swims but the other days didn't get enough activity in. Hoping to have some nice long hikes this weekend, but we'll see how the heat, humidity, and my dog let that happen. May have to leave her home!
