    Successes: Non-weight related victory = Got a dream job!

    Struggles: No loss this week. :( Really bad cold all week (still not over it) meant limited working out and eating a bit too much/making more convenient choices rather than healthy ones. Once I feel better, I need to get back into the exercise groove and move away from some convenience foods.

    Weight -/+ this week: -.8 lb
    Weight -/+ this month: -2.7 lb

    Successes/struggles this week: Not as much of a loss as I needed this last week, but since I went out for my birthday on Friday and had the works - delicious meal (ate half), martini, and desert - and then of course my family had to get in on the action and I had cake on Saturday (...and Sunday), I was definitely expecting it to be worse! This just means that this week I have to work twice as hard to lose those last two pesky pounds for my goal! I'm keeping positive though. Even if I fall short a pound, I'm still really happy with how this month is going. After 4 months of nothing changing I'm ecstatic just to lose anything! lol.

    Overall Weight Lost: 34.8

    Successes/struggles this week: Well, after losing 10 lbs per month for three months, the weight loss has started to slow down. I have increased my activity by over 80% and want to believe that part of the slowing has been due to building lean muscle. I am grateful that I continue to see progress. I really learned a lesson the hard way this month when I attempted to exercise every day without proper sleep and injured my calf muscle. It forced me to slow down and give back to my body in a different way. Great month everyone!

    Successes/struggles this week:
    Woohooo. Decided to start trimming down this month, worked hard and am super happy to be down 10+ pounds!

    I'm a bit hard on myself sometimes that my loss was a bit front loaded (5+ pounds that first week) but at the same time I'm not sure losing at that pace would be healthy. Gonna keep doing what I've been doing: being more active + mindful of nutrition and hopefully continue to see results.
