    Weight lost/gained this week: -5 lbs.
    Weight lost/gained this month: -15 lbs.

    Successes/struggles this week: My success came today when I stepped on the scale and saw that I now weigh the same as my fiance. That was my first goal I wanted to reach.

    My struggle came this week in the form of starting a 30 day free trial at a new gym in town with my best friend. But between a full-time job, full-time college, and a 2 year old, she doesn't have much time to go after work so we've been getting there around 6:40 for the past three mornings. I don't remember the last time I regularly woke up at 6 a.m. Even when I worked about 40 minutes from home, I was still able to get up at 6:30 a.m. for work. Sweets have also still been a struggle for me to avoid :/ I always crave them at night around 8 p.m.

    Successes/struggles this week:

    No change this week. Exactly the same weight as Monday, so I may recheck on Monday to give it a full week instead. I know I went over calories yesterday. We got our favorite takeout that we used to get weekly but hadn't had in a month. It's Chinese and packed with sodium so I'm sure I'm retaining water. Also still trying to get rid of a cold that won't quit.

    Successes are I'm back to my daily walks, and continuing with Stronglifts 5x5 too. My jeans are fitting better, and overall I'm feeling more comfortable in my clothes. I'm sure getting plenty of extra fluids will not only help with this cold, but flushing out any sodium from the junk this week. No loss is still better than a gain!!

    Weight lost/gained this month: I've lost 12 pounds since 01/11 :)

    Successes/struggles this week: Last week I only lost 1 pound which was really disappointing, I decided to do lower carb this week and see if that would help, and it definitely did! I tried to stay around 25 carbs or less per day and have lost 3 pounds since Monday :) Going to keep up with it this next week, I feel like this is a pretty decent start to reaching my goal for the month!

    Everyone is doing great! Keep it up you guys!

    Successes/struggles this week: I did fairly good sticking to what I had planned to eat for the day! But I struggled in a few areas, including not choosing the best food when going out to eat and binging on snacks between 2pm-4pm. On the plus side, I put away half of the restaurant food before eating, and I binged on roasted peas, but they're still habits I'd like to break.

    Successes/struggles this week: craving chocolate soooo much....I can't just eat one piece like most people...once I start I eat it until I feel sick. (sad, I know...lol) So, I had one night when I ate 12 mini candy bars. Wanted choc again last night but didn't do it! Still lost a pound in the last 4 days! Also resisted ALL other goodies last week.
