    Week 25

    Starting weight: 226.4
    Goal weight: 175
    Last week weight: 200.0
    This week weight: 199.5
    This week loss: 0.5
    Total weight loss: 26.9

    Weekly update:
    Last week I had a conference to attend. A well-fed conference. Apparently, I behaved OK overall because I am down for the week. I did make sure I exercised each night. The last night it was only a slow mile walk with my boss, but I made her lap the course twice. She first only wanted to do one lap.

    Last Week's challenges check-in
    :) Water Water Water – should help with the food control - I think this kept me from getting bloated at the conference
    :) Bed by 11 each weeknight - close actually, since I had to be up each morning for meetings
    :) 70,000+ steps for the week 77,250
    <3 Be considerate of my husband – he is traveling with me but has no work to do
    :/ Finish two items on the work list 1) MIP and 2) Data Dump for I-know-who
    :) Unpack when I get home, not a week later.

    This Week's life challenges
    It’s hot and sticky here in Florida, but that is nothing new. Work is busy, but not particularly challenging. I guess I really need to focus on whether or not I want to pursue another job. Other than that it should be just a week of staying on track.

    My husband wants to drive two and a half hours each way tomorrow to see his cousin and eat dinner. I guess I will have to be supportive since he always puts up with my relatives. I hope we go to Whitey’s fish camp. I could really enjoy a good fried fish sandwich.

    Stuff to do and to focus on
    • Stay in the green on food for the week. Don’t stress individual days.
    • Water - Keep logging it to make sure I am drinking it
    • Bed by 11 each weeknight - except Tuesday – I may not be home on Tuesday at 11:00
    • Get up Tuesday morning and walk before work
    • 70,000+ steps for the week

    <<< Make your week awesome >>>

    Week 25
    Starting weight: 226.4 lbs
    Current weight: 193.6 lbs
    Total weight loss so far: 32.8 lbs

    This week's success: It has been a while since I last posted on here so one success for this week is that I am back! I did 3 workouts at the gym this week, and maintained over 12,000 steps each day for 6 out of the 7 days of this week.

    This week's challenges: I have been frustrated for most of the month of June with the scales barely moving. It seems that losing the first 30 pounds was the easy bit. I am hoping that I will return to losing 1 pound per week again soon!!

    Week: 24
    SW: 206.8
    GW: 170

    May 27: 182.8
    June 3: 180.6
    June 10: 180.0
    June 17: 178.8
    July 1: 171.8

    Total weight lost: 35.0

    This week's challenges/successes: the loss of 7 lbs over two weeks is actually due to major surgery (and the removal of body parts), along with the anxiety both pre- and post-op. Challenge now is to slowly increase activity over the next 4 - 6 weeks.

    Goal weight: 120
    Current weight: 136.8
    This weeks weight loss: -.6
    Total weight loss: -24.2

    This week's challenges and success: 10 days of travel and family. Temptation was constant but with every compliment I received on my weight loss (there were lots) my willpower increased. I didn't pass up the goodies, but I did limit quantity. And gallons of water.

    Back home now and back to the gym. Ready to finish the 2nd half of this 52 week challenge. Thank you all for keeping me on track!

    You are here and checking in honestly. You are obviously in for the win!

    Be diligent on your logging for the next few weeks. Especially if you celebrate July 4. Write it ALL down. Then deal with it.

    I use the weekly average net calories to help keep me on track. If I go over one day I just go a little light a few other days that week. I also weigh daily and track the trend. My data points are all over the place. but the trend is down, like your trend for the year.

    Now go out there and track!!!

    Week 26

    Starting weight: 226.4
    Goal weight: 175
    Last week weight: 199.5
    This week weight: 200.0
    This week loss gain: +0.5
    Total weight loss: 26.4

    Weekly update:
    ARRGGGHHHH! Argh, argh, argh! Frickin half a pound up for the week!

    I’m not distressed, devastated or upset. I am just annoyed by the variances of the scale.
    For the last three days I have been 199, 197, 198. Today it decides to pop up a little more. Argh, Argh, ARGH.

    The only things I can account for it with are usual excuses: Water retention: I had several servings of alcohol yesterday, plus salty snacks at a poker game; I also started C25K yesterday and am not used to running. Hopefully I will look like a woosh at the next check-in.

    Also – I am halfway through the year and I am at my goal for 26 weeks!!!!! I have lost a pound a week for the first six months of 2017. Awesome! <3:)
