    I had 3 false starts last year. And instead of losing, I ended the year 15 lbs HEAVIER than I started it! :o But in December I started to really get my head right and really double downed beginning in January. Stick with it no matter how many false starts or start overs you need :) for me, it takes a few failed attempts before I'm really ready to dedicate to my weight loss. But once I am in the right head space, I'm on a roll!

    Thank you, yes agree. I am in a much better place and mind set. So hoping I can make this time my time! If I counted all the times I started over, I would be at my goal weight, lol. I would lose the weight and gain it all back, but now as I’m getting older with more health issues. It needs to be done, I want to be around for my grandchildren.

    Big loss this week. Paying more attention to what I'm doing. Didn't run as often but yesterday's 6 miles felt pretty easy. Time to extend that long run. I don't run to to be faster, my pace is 11-12 minutes/mile.. I run for the solitude. Once I get my mind set on committing the time to run, the distance is easier.

    Starting weight: 186.0 lbs
    Goal weight: 130.0 lbs
    Current weight: 177.7 lbs
    Total weight lost: 8.3 lbs

    This week's successes: Starting this week, I lowered my goal to be on track for 1.5 lbs loss a week with the idea that it's okay to go over a bit. I did really well and always allowed a little extra sweet thing after every dinner. I also did pretty decent at jumping back in after two weeks of no to little exercise. Finally, I've been hitting my water drinking goal for most of the week this week. This week felt pretty good.
    This week's challenges: I struggled with the IF a bit this week, but besides that and some emotional things I've had on my mind, it's been an overall successful week.
    Next week's goal: To remember this feeling and try to match the consistency.

    Goal weight: 65kgs /143lbs
    169cm / 5'7, 40 years

    Jan 27 - 119.5 kgs /264.0 lbs - (Facing up to what I weigh: heaviest ever)
    Jan 28 - 118.1 kgs / 260.4 lbs - (Start of diet & exercise)
    Feb 4 - 115.6 kgs / 255.0 lbs - week 01 loss 2.9kg / 5.4 lbs
    Feb 11 - 114.4 kgs / 252.0 lbs - week 02 loss 1.2kg / 3.0 lbs
    Feb 18 - 113.6 kgs / 250.0 lbs - week 03 loss 0.8kg / 2.0 lbs
    Feb 25 - 112.0 kgs / 247.0 lbs - week 04 loss 1.6kg / 3.0 lbs
    Mar 04 - 110.2 kgs /242.9 lbs - week 05 loss 1.8kg / 4.1 lbs*

    Total weight lost: 9.3kgs / 20.5lbs

    *I measure accurately in kgs and then convert to lbs, and often have rounded lbs to nearest full number, which means the conversion is not 100% accurate.

    This week's successes: Stuck to my diet, exercised 5 days, and learning lots about keto which my doctor has recommended for insulin resistance.

    This week's challenges: I started on metformin medication and supplements that made me feel fuzzy headed, tired, a bit yuck in the stomach, and then that combined with TTOM, so there were a couple days I didn't exercise like usual and pretty much lay around all day.

    Next week's goal: Start doing some resistance training at home, make an appointment with a dietician, and keep on doing what I'm doing.

    Had a rough couple of weeks with the loss of a pet and adoption of four new pets - so I didn't do my best. Still lost 0.5lbs, though, so I'll take whatever I can get!

    Last week's successes: Tracked each day so I could not deny what I ate. Did not gain weight at the fishing camp this time around. Something that I’m working on since we go there often. Less snacking and less alcohol is the key.
    Last week’s misstep: Did not meet my goal of 4 AF days for the week.
    This week's challenges: Traveling to San Francisco. Need to stay active, portion control & healthy choices at restaurants while monitoring my alcohol.
