    Monday check in. Still floating around 225 but the lows are 224 and the highs 226, an improvement. A little improvement. I weighed 220 when I came in from mowing on Saturday. 111 heat index. HOT!!! More than weight loss are visible or noticeable changes. Pants are looser shirts have to be put in good will piles. The weirdest thing is shoes not fitting. Shoes, really? My feet are shrinking too!
    I'm not participating in the summer heat challenge so I feel kind of outside the group. I loved being in the last one but it seemed like we as a group moved away from what we were when I started. I imagine a group as wonderful as this one has morphed around the constant for it's whole life. I think the challenges are fantastic. My Dr thinks I have about 40 more pounds to go but some of it is skin so I need to drop 20-30 more for goal and according to the charts I'll still be too heavy.
    I am struggling with people. I am very uncomfortable with attention. It's difficult for me to keep answering the same questions ; yes 120 pounds gone, yes I feel terrific. No, it hasn't been easy. I may have said this before. I'm not antisocial, I just don't like people that much. :). I hope you all have this problem soon.
    I have learned that weight loss starts between the ears. You gotta work on the mind, the habits and the why am I eating when I'm not hungry? If I can't do that I will fail in the long run. This was a hard weekend for me and I was tempted. I failed a little but caught myself. Every day it's a challenge. It must be getting easier but it sure doesn't feel like it.

    @newjax2017 yes it has been a bit quiet in here lately. I havent been too talkative myself.

    Summers are very busy here. I pick up as many extra hours at the farm as i can before the chickens ship off next month.

    I woke up with sinus issues yesterday. By this morning it was a full blown cold. Urgh!

    The heat doesnt make me want to exercise too much right now. But i am trying some new things inside the house at times too. Jumping jacks. Planks. Modified pushups. Air squats. Etc.

    Weightloss has slowed...but i am enjoying the results. So i am pleased. This will be permanent.

    This week i want to do a new exercise. Like bicycling or maybe rollerblading.

    For now i am hoping work this afternoon goes by quickly....i want to go home and rest and rid myself of this cold.

    Take care everyone!

    Hi everyone! I haven't been posting to the community, but I'm following everyone else's posts. I've lost 10lbs in the last few weeks since my last post, so that is awesome! But I did have to have a lil conversation with my scale this morning after it was obviously misreporting my weight. Somehow, I gained a pound since yesterday, despite doing everything by the book. I expect that scale to cooperate! I'll let you know if I gained its compliance tomorrow. :-) Wishing everyone well!!

    2. 10,000 steps 6/7:  ?/7
    3. Under cal goal 7/7: ?/7 

    Ok scale wrong way....but I'm ok because I went to the DR yesterday for a rash on my face that wouldn't go away, apparently I have an infection that my body has been fighting, that is why I have been so tired and blah and so hungry!!! I'm on antibiotics for the next 7 days, I expect to be down in weight by next week as the side effects of the antibiotics will definitely help, I already feel nauseated. I hope with my body being able to rest I will be able to focus on my fitness goals: track better, drink my water, and have the energy to get up and move towards my 10k steps.

    Also school starts back next week so my much need routine will be back and will definitely help me stay on track better!!! Sorry kiddos but I can't wait!!!

    Weight -/+ this week: -0.2 lbs
    Weight -/+ challenge total: -8.2 lbs
    Weight loss so far: -14.2 lbs

    I was able to make some improvements this past week. I'm still not as close as I'd like to be.
    I accomplished some NSV's that were huge for me. I ran 5 miles Monday. I haven't been able to to that in years! I'm the slowest runner in the world. But, I'm thrilled with that. I picked up my strength training a bit. And also got some yoga in the mix.
    I drank as much water as I could. It's challenging to stay hydrated at work so I have to drown myself on my days off.
    The scale showed a .2 loss, I'm hoping it will show a better loss next week. Either way, I made improvements. It will eventually catch up.

    Well, I did it AGAIN! I failed over the weekend. It continues to be my downfall again and again.
    Every! Single! Week!
    I do so well during the week then *BAM* the weekend comes. I think I need to have a talk with my daughter. She is not intentionally sabotaging me, but I have zero will power when I am with her and she is eating things that *I* should NOT be eating! She tries to help me, but she sucks at it! LOL She will tell me, "No, you wanted to be 'good' this weekend." But then, there I am telling her one bite won't hurt. One bite usually turns into more bites. Or, we are stopping to grab a bite and I end up ordering something yummy like her instead of something more healthy and lower in calories.

    I have basically been doing my "maintenance plan" where I will eat carefully during the week and whatever I want on the weekends. The only difference is the deficit during the week was greater this week so that I at least lost a little bit. That isn't always the case.

    Looking for any advise from anyone out there on how to handle the struggles that come on weekends!

    But on an uptick, I finally met my Fitness Goals this past week. ;)

    Until next time; wishing everyone Peace B) , Love <3 and Weight Loss :smiley: !!

    Well, as of today, my vacation is over. :( I had a wonderful time although I gained 2.2 lbs over the almost two weeks. Now to get back to planning my meals and exercising! Looking at the posts for this week it looks to me like a lot of us are struggling this summer, but I know we'll get back in the hang of things as summer winds down. Good luck everyone! :)
