    Work commitments yesterday meant I didn't get to the gym as I usually would. Managed to eat well for the most part and stuck to my calories. Going to get in some upper body weights and a swim this evening as my knee is still bugging me. I would really really like to stop losing this same kilo every single week!! Trying to make a plan for the weekend as I have a bad habit of throwing away all my hard work after 5pm on a Friday. Suggestions very welcome :)

    05/23- 65.3kg
    05/24- 65.0kg
    05/25- 64.8kg

    05/23 - 141.8 (a bit too close for comfort!)
    05/24 -140.8 (5k run yesterday)
    05/25 - 140.0 (weight training day yesterday. Nice surprising drop again this morning - although I suspect this is mostly water weight. I decided to concentrate on getting enough protein this week - something I'm not very good at usually. I've done really well so far, but, in order to keep within my calorie total, it's been at the expense of carbs - I read somewhere that 1g of carbs binds to 2g of water, so that'll be why the sudden drop in weight! (It does make you wonder what our 'bodyweight' actually ever is really?!) I've already had enough of tuna, chicken and eggs though - they're making me feel so full! And so thirsty! Not sure I'd be able to keep this up long term.

    I have this exact same problem - I'm reasonably good all week, then blow it on the weekend. I now try to create a bit more of a calorie deficit during the week, so that I can allow myself more wriggle room on the weekend. Every now and again I get fed up of spending all week losing the few pounds I gain each weekend and put the effort in to have a really good weekend too, which does help to address the balance. It's tough, isn't it!

    See I've been trying this but I wonder now if the extra restrictions during the week make it harder for me to maintain good habits on the weekend. I'm at my partner's house most of the time on weekends so this weekend my plan is to turn up with a bag of my own groceries hahaha

    05/23 - 63.4 kgs, up from 62.7 yesterday! Definitely because I went out for dinner and only did my regular walking, nothing extra.
    05/24- 62.9. Did two gym classes last night (strength/conditioning) and my regular 2 hour walking commute to work. Did not drink a huge amount of beer and cider...

    05/25- 64.2 an hour of Pilates, 45 minutes weights and an hour walking yesterday... topped off with two beers and a huge bowl of ramen for dinner. I believe that a part of this is from the large amount of Salt I had?

    Good plan! :smile: Yes - I find it much easier to eat better during the week - there are no temptations or restrictions required at all - whereas all my eating out/socialising/meals prepared by other people happen on the weekend - so my calorie cycling averages out over the week and works pretty well for me. Good luck!

    Girlgroves & evivahealth: do you do planned cheat meals or days?
    When I know that pretty soon I am going to be able to have something delicious, it makes me more focused on other days.
    I just do a cheat meal. Cheat days would be too unstructured for me to actually stay on the wagon.
    Just a thought. :)

    05/23: 162.0lbs - Mom's scale wasn't off! I'm thrilled to know I'm officially 20.3 lbs down from where I started in
    March. My goal was 20 before our vacation on May 26 so I DID IT!!!

    05/24: 161.8lbs - totally forgot to post this morning in amidst my crazy day starting to get ready for our trip...one more day of great habits until vacation time!!

    05/25: 161.4 - will try to get my last weigh in tomorrow posted from the airport...if not...I'll catch you all in round 6 when I'm back from my trip. Keep it going!

    I need an accountability group. I've been on again, off again. I just can't get to 4#'s lost!! Hoping within these 10 days I can see enough to keep going.
    05/23:174.4 - started bright and early with TRX workout, healthy lunch packed and will get in a 3 mile run in tonight!
    05/24: 175.2 - up but ok with that as I did 3 miles running and 2 walking yesterday. I also did not drink enough water. This morning already did 30 minutes on recumbent bike and I'm chugging water.
    05/25: 173.2- WOW the water made a difference. I plan to get a 3mile run in tonight after work.

    Same as yesterday. My scale measures to the half pound, so I'm thankful that I'm not able to obsess over smaller increments than that!

    I've eaten at/under my calorie goal for most days recently although I'm having trouble hitting my protein macro. I'll probably pick up some powder or more Quest bars soon. And I'm not eating back my exercise calories (yet). This is the first week where I've done a little cardio and/or weights every day since I started on May 1st, so I'm pretty sure my body is just reacting to the changes and retaining water to repair muscle (thanks, DOMS!). I just need to trust in the science for the next few weeks.

    05/23 – 173.5
    05/24 – 174.0
    05/25 – 174.0

    I'm coming in late and hope that you do another ten days when this one is done. I'll follow along on the rest of this one. I'm very excited. First day back on MFP in a long time.
