I am just grateful for not gaining any weight.

    Sorry for the dbl posting. It didn't show up at the first attempt. Would be great if we had a "delete" button. Or how about a "like" button?

    Successes/struggles this week: Well, I've been eating like I was eating months back so I know where my weight gain comes from. Now, I need to back off from all of this food or at least exercise on a routine basis. I will be happy to lose 2 lbs next week. :)

    Weight lost/gained this week: -0.0
    Weight lost/gained this month: -0.9

    Successes/struggles this week: I managed to get under 178 last week, but it didn't last. I'm doing much better with my food and staying under calories, and I feel soooo much better. That's the most important thing for me right now because I was feeling like crude. I've also found some motivation again, so my daily steps are at least triple what they have been the last few weeks. It's possible the increased activity is causing some water retention, and I am fine with that. See ya next week!

    1st March:

    Weight lost/gained this week: +4.5 lbs
    Weight lost/gained this month:

    Successes/struggles 1st week: What?! I gained 4.5 lbs in 5 days?! I didn't even know that was possible. The scale is going the wrong way. I exercised every day. I didn't eat super great, but I didn't eat horribly either. I went over a few days, but not by much. Heavy sigh. Hopefully next week have a better #.

    Successes/struggles 2nd week: Had emergency gall bladder surgery on the 10th. It sort of put a damper on exercise. Ha. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things this week.

    Successes/struggles 3rd week: Still recovering from surgery. It's not that bad actually, but I am following Dr's orders and taking it easy. I usually jump right back into things if I feel fine. Then it backfires and I realize why they say go slow even if you feel good. Ha. I will weigh myself this Friday. I think things will be close enough to normal that whatever the scale says will be legit. I was afraid it would show too much loss because of my tentative and careful eating after surgery which is not how I usually eat. I know I'm not going to reach my goal because of the huge jump the first four days (still think that's crazy), but hopefully I will not have gained any. I love this challenge and am looking forward to continuing it next month as well.

    Weight lost/gained this week: -0.6
    Weight lost/gained this month: -0.5

    Struggles: I automatically go to the fridge or the sweets drawer after the kids have gone to sleep. I know it is just a bad habit, but it is really hard to get rid of it! not much time / drive for exercise

    Success: I tried to brush my teeth early in the evening and this stopped me from endless snacking, yeah! I hope it will continue to work! I stayed within my calories most of the days and tried to drink enough water.

    my goal for this month seems a bit far away but I am so glad I finally got to losing weight again and being disciplined! it has taken me a long time to get back and it feels good not to be afraid of stepping on the scales....
