    Successes/Struggles: it's been a crappy week. The scale is up huge. I had a really crappy Sunday and I've been working all week to get this extra "water" weight off. Well it's obviously not water weight. What the heck? I've stayed in calories and tracked everything all week. Hopefully things work themselves out soon.

    02/01:

    Loss/gain for the week: 1.6 lbs
    Loss/ gain for the month so far: 8.2 lbs

    Struggles/Successes for this week: 0.2 lbs from my monthly goal. My husband insisted on pizza last Saturday, and I didn't protest. I ate less of it than I normally would have so that's good I think, but still went over my calories for that day. I've been sick for a few days and missed my daily walk yesterday. I had such a nice streak going there.

    Start Weight (1st January): 315.8
    Goal Weight (1st February): 300 (aggressive but I'm just starting again and have lots to lose)

    1st January: 315.8
    8th January: 307.6
    15th January: 305.2
    22nd January: 303.8
    29th January: 303.6
    1st February:

    Weight lost/gained this week: -0.2 loss
    Weight lost/gained this month: -12.2 loss total

    Successes/struggles this week: Ate clean and within my caloric goals all week, and logged every single bit of food, sometimes even over-estimating, so I KNOW I'm doing everything I can. However, TOM. 'Nuff said. Hopefully my hard efforts will be reflected on the scale next week when the bloating/retention weight whooshes away. Still disappointing that I didn't meet my target goal for the monthly challenge, but 12.2 for the month is still a win.

    8th January:197.5
    15th January: 195.5
    22nd January: 195
    29th January:193.5
    1st February:

    Weight lost/gained this week: 1.5
    This month: 6.5

    Successes/struggles this week: I met my modest goal. Along the way I got my hopes up for blasting past it and losing 10 pounds or so, but I’m reasonably satisfied with my progress. I overcame hip issues and started water aerobics. All in all, I’m happy. 193.5 has been popping up on the scale since last week, followed by fluctuations, so I think I may be less than that when the hormones settle.
