    Little disappointed in last week’s loss,. Of course I had been over a pound lower, but when weigh in Day is here I am up. Next week! Tracking and logging was good. ,just below calories most days then I ease up on weekends. Hopefully the weather warms up and I can increase my exercise.

    Maintained my weight this week, which wasn't unexpected. I had a few good days and a few naughty days, so it all balanced out.

    Successes this week: I'm starting to understand my cravings better now, and I'm able to make swaps. When I want crisps, I'll eat something crunchy like carrots. When I'm craving carbs, I'll chop up and boil a potato, then sprinkle some paprika and black pepper on them, then roast it in the oven with a couple of squirts of Frylight. I'm teaching myself to wait a bit instead of instantly seeking gratification.

    Challenges: Knowing that I now will not have an official weigh in until the 25th March means that I know my brain will be saying "EAT JUNK, YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH IT", so I have to rein that in. Plus, I'm going on holiday for two weeks to a place where you get free food with every drink you order (Granada, Spain), so I need to try and make some smart choices to balance out my inevitable bad choices!

    This weeks challenge was that I had a hard week mentally. Have you ever been afraid to be happy you lost weight? Like you’ll wake up and it will be up 10 lb? The struggle of always being on that up and down roller coaster has made it hard to enjoy it. Hopefully during this year I will become less afraid if failing.
    Goals are to keep tracking and drinking water.

    This is a great way to view long-term weight loss! One week of enjoying something special, like your sons birthday, isn't the end of the world. And having the attitude that its ok because it will be off next week, is perfect! Very motivating :)

    Yup!! I'm down ~10 lbs. And my mind knows thats great, but a part of me also views the number as small and like I'm not far enough away from my starting weight to feel comfortable enough to not slide right back easily. I could gain these 10 lbs back in probably 2-weeks if I stopped paying attention to my diet and stopped going to the gym. I don't think I will feel "safe" or accomplished until I am down 30-40+ lbs.

    Week goal 165#
    Update: 39F 5'2" Maintenance goal: 134.
    2019/1/01: 185.2. (Heaviest ever)
    2019/January: 185.2 - 172.8 (Net -12.4 lbs)
    2019/February: 172.8 - 167.6 (Net -5.2 lbs)
    3/6/2019: 164.4 (met week goal 165)
    Total loss since 2019/1/1: 20.8 lbs!
    Plenty of weeks when my weight just stabilized, no movement in numbers.

    I get hungry when I exercise and that's natural. When the cravings attack, I now eat what would give me most satisfaction within my calorie goals (whether it be junk food or fried chicken) bc I find nibbling on "healthier", lower calorie options during these times will still end up becoming a binge-fest to fulfill the satisfaction (which often do not work for me and I still end up looking for that thing I craved.... After also already eating a bunch of little things that put me way beyond over my calorie goals).
