    @mickeygirliegirl Great job on the walking! I always have an easier time following MFP when I am more active. I love those extra exercise calories - LOL

    @Minkgirl Yeah, I hit the chocolate and peeps pretty hardcore yesterday too. Thank god there are no more in my house (because we ate them all yesterday). :)

    @jamacianredhair I hope you feel better soon :(

    Successes/struggles this week:

    April 3rd check-in: 258.2 lbs.
    Weight -/+ this week: -3.4 lbs.

    April 10th check-in: 256 lbs.
    Weight -/+ this week: -2.2 lbs.

    Successes/struggles this week: Did quite well for the most part in regards to eating within my limit, and I only had one day where the hunger pangs were hitting me real hard (from the moment I woke up, no less). As for struggles, being inactive due to my back problems still sucks when all I want to do is get out to the gym.

    April 17th check-in: 253 lbs.
    Weight -/+ this week: -3 lbs.
    Weight -/+ this month: -8.6 lbs.

    Successes/struggles this week: Didn't track for a few days, but it looks like I'm getting used to my new way of eating and didn't gorge myself like I used to. I'd say that's a success.

    Successes / struggles this week: Struggles, eating bad food lol my in-laws were in town and while my MIL eats very healthy, my FIL doesn't always. Of course they buy donuts for my kids and I need to protect them from the bad eating habits, so I eat them myself to limit my kids exposure ha :wink: I still managed to lose though so that's a big success!

    Successes/struggles this week: For Easter I had made lasagna, most of which had to stay here because my boyfriend couldn't take it home with him. I had some on Monday and Tuesday in a bowl, about 300g of it, but because I didn't really weigh out the pan of lasagna or weigh all the ingredients I did my best to overestimate the calories to be sure I didnt underestimate. I'm not sure if they were really worth 700+- calories but that's what I listed it as. A few days ago I began to fall ill and have a sore throat. Last night I did nothing but spit up a ton of mucus. I don't know if that and/or the lasagna estimations contributed to my huge dip in weight loss, or the fact that I've finally gotten past my constipation problems and have been going again more comfortably (not to be even more gross but), this week there were days that I had 2 bowel movements. (I weighed myself about 6 times today to confirm it was the same number because I didn't believe it). I'll see what happens next Friday.
