    Week 1: 132.6

    Whyyyyyy.... T_T I was so excited to be on this side of 130.

    Anyway, I've started accutane and will be on it for about 6 months and I may shrivel into a husk, but I should at least be a husk with clear skin. I know hydration is important while I'm on this, and I have to take my pill with a fatty meal for absorption.

    I dropped the middle part of my circular pizza on the ground today at lunch.

    Not a lot of positivity today, but I plan to change that~ :p

    Challenge Start Weight: 67
    Challenge Goal: 57

    Week 1: 60 (lowest weight on Saturday at 58kg)

    A positive thought for the week: I didn't overeat on every day.
    Healthy snack or meal: blackberries fresh from the hedge

    It's been a rough week emotionally. Hormones are probably not helping, but I am currently seeking solace in the pantry. It works like an evil charm: Part of me knows I'm being triggered, the other part of just watches: ah, there she goes again. I've been exercising heaps & I still manage to overeat. Feeling a bit helpless at the moment & hope for a seachange this week. :-/

    Challenge Start Weight: 142.3 lbs
    Challenge Goal: 135.0 lbs

    Week 1: 139.3 lbs

    So I’m going to ramble throughout this challenge so bare with me. I noticed this week that when I’m hungry, legitimately hungry I mean, then I start eating all the things and snacking. So I’m making it a point now to eat REAL meals to reduce my snacking for times I actually need things to carry me over to my next meal. I haven’t been focusing on my water (coffee at some point takes over my day LOL!) but I’ll get on it first thing in the morning. I took an unexpected rest week and I have hit the ground running every since Sunday. I have two weeks left in StrongLifts and then I get to do my own thing.

    Start Weight:200.8 (January 2018)
    Challenge Start Weight:189.8
    Challenge Goal Weight:175

    Weigh in #1: 186.6

    I'm a grandma again! My daughter had a beautiful baby girl yesterday morning and I got to be there for everything! God is good!

    I'm honestly not sure what is going on with my weight. I shifted my calories up by quite a bit this past week (not totally intentional) and the scale has been moving when it has not in so long. I plan on keeping up the increased calorie goal this week to see if this is something that was wrong all this time.

    If anyone has insight to this, I am all ears!

    Congrats! On the new baby and the weight loss!!!
    Have you changed WHAT you are eating? Or been drinking lots of water and eating less sodium?

    In all honesty, I was full of *kitten* it over the weekend. I had a half of a pizza on Friday night, a little more than half a slice of cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory, a steak dinner with potatoes and everything as well. I have not been eating like that. I feel like maybe I needed the sodium or the fat or something? Because I have been very honest with my weight changes and have been fluctuating between 191 and 189 for over a month! (I do weigh daily now and have been since my inquiry in May). Suddenly this week, I have this 3 pound change. It's crazy.

    ETA: My net calorie intake this week was about 150 daily more than my normal.

    Yes, thanks! Lol I'm applying sunscreen in 3 steps in the morning (moisturizer spf 30, bb cream spf 42, sunscreen powder spf 30) and reapplying the powder sunscreen for my commute home. I did accutane when I was in college, but my acne returned so I'm back for a second round.
