    Ok! Now that I have "doable" numbers in front of me, I think I can do it. I just want to be out of the 160's again. It's been since Oct, when I was at 153 that I was at my lowest.

    @Tracie_Lord You're doing incredibly well! Could you share your strategy please? You can private message me if that's more comfortable.

    I will happily share openly :)

    I eat clean, non processed food and have a cheat day once a week. I also only eat refined carbs maybe once a week, (this week was a steak house and Saturday and we went to town - I was still full midday sunday! hahaha). I have ditched the gym for the time being about a month ago as found I have too much fat still to lose before I build muscle. I do go to aqua aerobics once a week but that's just for fun really

    I calorie count but more to ensure I am getting enough as sometimes it is hard to get up to 1200 which I have as a minimum with maximum 1350, I eat lots of fruit to get up the calories. I log cheat days and holidays but have what I want - some days can be as high as 4000 cals with alcohol and the sort :/

    My diary is open so please feel free to add me and take a peek if you want at how my diet is.

    I also weigh daily but log weekly. This has helped me to learn my body more and also what effect salt and water has.

    I drink about 2-3 litres of water a day.

    Hope this all makes sense :)

    Thank you so much for sharing! Yes, it does help and I will send a friend request.

    Original starting weight - 220
    April starting weight - 224
    April goal - 219
    Ultimate goal - 195
    April 1 - 224
    April 8 - 223.9
    April 16 - 226.0 Really? What happened? All I know is that I ate two meals on Saturday, and Sunday I may have "snacked" a bit too much. I weigh as soon as I get out of the shower in the morning. Once I got to work my belly started churning and I had to ... well... go. So I may have lost a bit. FOCUS this week on eating better than not, and getting my calories burned UP.
