    Name: Heather
    Age: 39
    Height: 5'8

    Start Weight (May 1): 204.4
    Goal Weight (June 1): 199

    Weigh-ins (week of...):

    May 1: 204.4
    May 8: 205.8
    May 15: 205.4
    May 22: 204.4
    May 29: 204

    Weight -/+ this week: -0.4
    Weight -/+ this month: -0.4

    Successes/struggles this week:

    My successes this week were getting in 5 workouts even when I was tired or running short on time, completing the first week of a 28 day plank challenge, and making good food choices despite not having much time to cook.

    I have only lost .4 pounds this month but I feel like I've established a good workout routine and I've been moving in a positive direction with my food choices. My down fall is my weekends. I get lazy about tracking my food. This will be my primary focus for the next month. This challenge has been very helpful in holding me accountable.

    Height: 5'7"

    Start Weight (May 1): 148.8 lbs
    Goal Weight (June 1): 143.8 lbs

    Weigh-ins (week of...):

    May 1: 148.8 lbs
    May 8: 147.8 lbs
    May 15: 148 lbs
    May 22: 145.8 lbs
    May 31: 148.6 lbs

    Weight -/+ this week: + 2.8 lbs
    Weight -/+ this month: -0.2 lbs

    Successes/struggles this week: I'm sure I haven't actually gained 3 lbs since last week, but I've probably gained a little. I'm in a great workout habit. Just need to eliminate some of my other habits, like eating too much junk. It's probably time to accept that I don't feel well, or perform well, when I eat certain foods.

    Weigh-ins:

    May 8: 194.1 lbs
    May 15: 193.1 lbs
    May 22: 192.3 lbs
    May 29: 191.5 lbs
    June 1:

    Weight -/+ this week: -.8 lb
    Weight -/+ this month: -3.5 lb

    Successes/struggles this week: The end of this month was somewhat difficult due to birthday celebrations, my own and a friend's, and holiday picnic-ing. I definitely lost motivation to really exercise as much as I should have this week... But since I've been loosing a steady .8 lbs and the scale DID say 190 twice (I use a trend weight as my weigh-in number, though) I can't say it's been a total waste! I missed my goal by 1.5 lbs... I consider that a win for me! I'm going to do one more weigh in on June 1st and then hopefully start the June Challenge! I love these threads. :smile:
