    Original starting weight - Not my highest weight since joining MFP, but my highest recent weight was 192.9 lbs on March 1, 2018.
    May starting weight - 179
    May goal - 174
    Ultimate goal - 150 (Perhaps not *ultimate, ultimate* goal, but I would be happy to reach this weight for the first time in a LONG time! 140s would be even more amazing!)

    May 1st - 179.0
    May 8th - 178.1
    May 15th - 177.7
    May 22nd - 175.3
    May 29th - 178.6
    May 31st -

    Ah- 2 restaurant meals from the weekend are hanging on :-O Not horrible splurges.. 85% of a "normal-sized" (aka not Chipotle) burrito and a beer for one dinner, and Vietnamese-style hot pot restaurant where I avoided the rice paper wrappers and stuck with mostly meat and veggies... but I know there's so much sodium in these types of meals. One restaurant meal a week tends to undo all the good decisions of the week; Two will put me back in the opposite direction.

    Two more weigh-ins till the end of the month. At this point, the new goal is to lose more than 1 pound for the month of May. Better than where I started :) Back to good decisions- joining a friend for her birthday dinner tonight but will eat beforehand so I don't eat there :)

    My body is quite used it to the big swings, it's heredity. I've been dealing with this since I was a I feel as it's more dangerous to take water pills (that can damage your kidneys) oppose to wearing a sauna suit, whereas you can sweat out the fluid naturally.

    Water pills scare me too. I suppose if they are prescribed by a doctor to manage a condition, thatbis one thing, but the OTC ones can easily be misused.

    My weight is up again today. Sore muscles from overdoing some power cleaning :) I am sure it's water too. I always get puffy after over-exertion.

    My body is getting used to the shock of losing so much weight in one week I guess. Weight is jumping up and down for 3 weeks. But the measurements of thighs and waist are definitely going down.

    It would have been hard to gain that much in a week of fat, has to be water. I went up 6 lbs and back down from Friday to Tuesday, don’t get discouraged!

    This will be my first challenge, but I am in dire need of some support! While becoming more active in the last few months, I still struggle with eating habits. I need to remind myself I will not see change without making a change. I am looking forward to the challenge and 5 lbs is a feasible goal!

    Original starting weight - Debatable since I have been on a on-and-off weightloss journey for many years
    May starting weight - 177.2 lbs
    May goal -173 lbs
    Ultimate goal - 155 lbs

    May 1st - 177.2 lbs
    May 8th - 175 lbs
    May 15th - 175.8 lbs
    May 17th - 173 lbs
    May 28nd - 173.6 lbs
    May 30th - 172.6 lbs


    Total loss for May - 4.6 lbs

    So close! May was a stellar month for me nonetheless. Thanks to all for the support! It really helped keep me motivated! Hoping June goes just as well. I will be out of the country for 2 weeks, but will have access to a kitchen so am hoping to stay on track. Plus, I won't have my young pup with me so I can make my daily 1-3 mile walks some jogs/runs instead!

    Even though I didn't meet my goal for the month of May, I'm able to see how much/how easily a restaurant meal can affect my progress. Nice to see the week-to-week written out this way to drill the point home. As I move into June, I will remember to ONLY eat out for special occasions that I feel are absolutely worth the extra calories/carbs/sodium, knowing that that meal will likely set me back by ~2 weeks. But I'm in this for the long haul, so sometimes there are occasions that are worth it. I know I can't eat 100 perfect meals each month- gotta work on that balance!
