    Success: feeling motivated to make the weight loss happen. Logging my food and tracking my exercise has kept me on track this week.

    Challenge: heading into two weeks of vacation that will require restraint and being selective when I want to indulge.

    So you're a pound behind schedule ( which is 7 pounds better than me) and still 8 bags of sugar lighter than you were in December. Keep track and keep in touch here and you'll soon be sorted!

    SW/CW: 168.9
    GW: 140

    Week 1: 172.2
    Week 2: 170.0

    I just started Whole 30, so won't be weighing in until July 1.

    Week 4: 164.2

    Whole 30 is working. I feel great and I've lost weight. I'm halfway through!

    Week 5: 164

    Frustrated at not having lost as much this week. Didn't feel as well this week, and didn't sleep as well. Had several meals out because of work. Stayed on plan the best I could, but impacted my weight loss. Focusing on not getting discouraged and pushing through. To another week!

    Week 6: 160.4

    Followed my husband's advice and stayed clean this week. Avoided any meals out that I could. And it worked! Down 4lbs. I'll be out of town next week, so my goal is not to let the # creep up too much. Also, today's my last day of Whole30. Going forward, 1 cheat meal per week.
