    You can do it. I suggest that you add a little more to your exercises & cut back on your calorie intake a little. Trust me, you will see a difference. My goal is to have 10,000 steps per day, for this final challenge, I'm going to increase it.

    Best of luck!!!

    I can't really cut back on calories. Most days I'm lucky to get 1000. My husband lost an employee so he has been working so much. I have been bad and let that stop me from going to they gym. So I am going to get better about still getting my 2 mile walk in.

    Hi Everyone,

    I was called into work earlier today and had to return home due to not feeling well. I just got home and I'm going to go have a sleep in hopes it does me well.

    In the event I don't get the weekly stats posted later this evening I will do it tomorrow morning. In the meantime, if you go into the spreadsheet you will at least see the winning teams.

    Sorry :neutral:

    Not quite such a good week for us, we came 7 out of 10 teams. BUT and it's a good but...... if we look at the month to date we are currently 4th which I think is pretty awesome. If we do well in the final week we could end up in the top three. That would be so good. Let's go for it this week and try extra hard to make the final top 3.

    I'm so disappointed! I thought I was working really hard but I only had a 1.4# loss for week 4. This is crushing!

    That is nothing to be disappointed about. Not only is that a good loss it's a healthy one. You're being too hard on yourself <3

    Don't be too disappointed, a loss is a loss. It is way better than a gain. That's a healthy weight loss. One pound loss at a time will eventually get you to your ultimate goal.

    Sorry I've been a bit quiet this week. Still drinking lots of water and sticking to my calories and steps. Not so good at not eating late but it's only because I have dinner later when I'm busy, no after dinner snacking though.

    Good luck to everyone with their weigh-ins if they haven't already done them! This challenge has been amazing for me. Lost 5.6lbs in total this challenge so I can't complain. GO THE SLIMSONS :smiley:

    @vbugsmom don't feel bad...at least you didn't gain. You'll do better next week. Thanks for your kind words.
    @thefletchhh That's outstanding! You've done great!
    @Healthy4me4ever Glad to hear you're able to stick to it!
    @dillyg08 and @Serendipity0913 Thanks for your encouragement
    Overall, I think we have had an amazing month! I know this challenge has been great for me, and I'm looking forward to next month. I'm going to miss not being on the same team with you guys, though.

    Slimsons..this challenge kicked start my weight loss journey after multiple attempts. September I'll be 45 and my gift to myself is to get to my healthy weight range. I'm on my way and I'm determined to get there. For this challenge I wanted to get out of the 180s and I bearly made it out and I'm so excited.

    On to the next month challenge. I already set my small goal of 5lbs, but I'll be pushing for more.

    It has truly been a pleasure. I want to wish each and everyone of you good luck on your journey. Don't give up..keep going. We won't feel great everyday or we may slip up, but the key is to pick ourselves up and keep going.

    One love Slimsons <3
