    Week 38

    Starting weight: 226.4
    Goal weight: 175
    Last week weight: 196.0
    This week weight: 191.6
    This week loss: 4.4
    Total weight lost: 34.8

    This weeks successes:
    Well, obviously weight wise it has been a sucessfull week. The reason for the big drop was loss of fluid retention mostly. I had been eating more carbs than usual, I had been working outdoors a lot and I had not been drinking as much water as I should have. This week I have eaten up to my calories all week, exercised and watched what I ate and drank better: more water, vegetables, and fruit; less chocolate and other carb loaded food.

    I wanted to be at 38 or more pounds lost this week. I am tempted to go low for a few weeks and get back to my weight loss equaling the number of weeks. However I am afraid I will not be sucessfull if I try that and that the process will have negative consqeuences. I have been eating my exercise calories. This week I did not. I may just cut into those calories for a bit as long as I am not overtired. Eat back some but not as much.

    It all focuses around control. I have to keep wresting control back from events - like broken horses during solar eclipse weekends, hurricanes, and work drama. It is worth the fight every time because I have lost 35 pounds this year. I am on my way to losing 52 pounds in a year. I feel so much better and I do so much more.

    “It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.”
    ~ Mark Twain

    This weeks challenges:
    I have a road trip. There is a wedding Saturday in SC. Driving days are Friday and Sunday.

    Goals for the week
    • Stay in green on calories
    • Drink 64+ oz of water
    • 10K steps a day
    • Pack Wednesday
    • Enjoy self at wedding and after party - but track all food
    • Clean house Thursday

    @JetWan, you are doing extremely well. Keep up the good work! You are my motivator. I have never given this compliment to anyone since I have been on MFP since 8/12. Just 13lbs from my goal. I hope to be on maintenance by Dec13, which is my birthday.

    Current weight: 131.6
    This week's weight change: +1.6

    It was hard to post today with a 1.6 pound gain. Those peanut butter cups caught up with me....it's mine and now I own it.

    Lately we have been doing things we always wanted to try and this week it was airboats. What a great time. Also got in more paddle board time. Next week we are going to try the zip line and ropes course. Life is too short to be afraid of new adventures.
