    4/18/18:141.6 (141.1 Average)

    Well 139lbs made a guest appearance on my scale earlier last week! I'm hoping to see it stick around by month end. I'm still dealing with an on & off ravenous appetite. I'm not sure if it's the workouts, or what's going on. So, I'm upping my calories to maintenance for a week or two to see if that gets those hunger hormones under control. Since I'll be eating at or above maintenance I'm not planning on eating back my exercise calories on workout days. Unless I do something crazy intense. (I wouldn't call flopping around in my living room for 30 minutes to Jillian too intense. :lol: ) Hopefully that will get me to goal by month end.

    ETA: Those "maintenance" weeks a couple weeks ago, wasn't exactly planned or controlled. That was me being tired and wanting to eat all the things! I'm hoping by having a controlled refeed break I'll get more out of it and be ready to go back to a deficit with my appetite a little more under control. For a while anyways. Until the fat cells demand another sacrifice for replenishment. :tongue:

    Didn't lose but I also didn't gain so I guess that's not so bad. School has been really rough the past 4 weeks so tomorrow I'm planning on doing a ton of work just so that I'll be ahead and less stressed during the week and can focus more on me. I started lifting again which will hopefully bring a whoosh next week but I'm also due for my period, so my hopes aren't high.

    GW: 47.5

    End-of-March SW: 53.4kg / 30.2 % BFP (Moving Average 53.5 kg)
    April GW: 52.5 kg / 29 % BF

    April 6: 52.6 kg / 29.4% BF (Moving Average 53.2 kg)
    April 13: 52.5 kg / 28.8% BF (Moving Average 52.6 kg)
    April 20: 52.3kg / 29.2% BF (Moving Average 51.9 kg)
    April 27:

    Bit of a weird one, weight's ticking down, but BFP went up? To be completely fair, my diet's been a bit inconsistent, but then my workouts have been up... I dunno. It's going the right way! I suppose I should be pleased! This week's goal is to tighten up logging, and really kick the last week of April's butt for some serious results... and so I can really get a handle on my May goals.

    Long time no see @glassofroses! Hope life is starting to be kind to you again.

    Yeah, it's going alright! I've got a stupid tailbone injury and I had a hip strain which has set me back in my training, but in general, my weight is up (142ish), yay, but it's more my BF which is less yay. I don't mind [my BF] being up, I just feel not good from so much Easter chocolate, too many nights out and pizza. Doing a week of logging to see how I can tweak my diet back into optimimum health and I just miss the comradarie of everyone being into being healthy and fit.

    I hope you and everyone else have been well. :kissing_heart:

    April goal: 140, then will re-evaluate from there. Probably maintenance after!

    April 2: 141.4
    April 6: 141.4
    April 13: 141
    April 20: 140.2
    April 27:

    .2 pounds from goal weight!! I should hopefully hit that in the next few days as long as I keep my diet on track. Originally I was planning on switching to maintenance right after getting to goal, but I'm going to be doing some traveling in about 2 weeks, so now I plan on eating at a deficit until then just to give myself a buffer. After all of the traveling it'll be a switch to maintenance and recomp!!

    April 20: 147 TOM

    I’m so discouraged. I had been feeling pretty good about the way I looked and was working on recomp until Thursday when I went dress shopping. I needed a dress that fit well for an upcoming event. So I was happy because I needed a smaller size than what I have in my closet...then I get into a dressing room with a three way mirror. The HORROR! I definitely need to lose 10lbs before recomp. They should outlaw three way mirrors inside the dressing room. I’m only half joking. I ended up buying a cute dress from a store that had a three way mirror outside the dressing room where you could view yourself after the dress was on your body. Back to deficit for me. :-/

    April GW: 139 (don’t think this is going to happen, revising to 141).

    March 1: 147 (24.4 BF)

    April 7: 142.4
    April 14: 142.4
    April 21: 144.6

    Not the direction I wanted to see the scale going. It was a rough week on the motivation front. I was travelling Saturday & Sunday and again Monday through Wednesday. I didn’t log. I ate cookies at work. I ate salty foods and drank beer. Trying to reset today and get back into being good about food and logging.

    As a positive, I’ve been sticking with my workout routine. Currently at a 110 day streak of yoga every day (since Jan 1) and did the first day of Level 3 of the 30 Day Shred yesterday.

    April 28:138.2

    I am getting better about staying under my calorie goal each day. (Although there were some bad decisions made regarding baklava last night.) I am aiming to work out 4 times this week and cut more sugar. The sugar is the hardest part - I love pastries and cookies. I like seeing the numbers on the scale drop because it is tangible proof of my hard work, but I also realize that the numbers are going to either stall or go up as I gain muscle mass. I objectively know that I am still making progress even if my weight doesn't go down - but it's always mildly disappointing to not see the numbers get lower.

    I have friend flying in from out of town to spend this week with me. I’m a little terrified of what that means for my calories. I am going to try to pre-log as much as I can and then just pray the hit doesn’t set me back too far. Wish me luck!

    I was a little scared of how the scale would look because I have had a bad cold during which I had a small love affair with bread and butter comfort food, haha. But it didn't seem to cause major problems. Maybe the fact that I didn't have wine in the evenings balanced things out.

    April 2 64kg (FFS)
    April 9 63.4kg
    April 16 63.9kg
    April 23 64.4kg

    My target this month was going to be 62kg, I think now that this is impossible!! I’ve f***ed up big style this month, I don’t know what’s going on with me, I’ve seriously lost my mojo.
