    Food - IF and on target
    Water - 2l
    Exercise - 2 walks, 4 km
    It felt so good to get my hair done at the salon again. I was very impressed with their distancing measures as well. These little things just make me feel better. I also forgot to mention in this morning’s post that my LTD is 19.6 lbs, hurray! I started monitoring a few other metrics, and I lost 1.5 inches from my waist in the past few weeks. Given that a lot of us get thicker in the midsection during middle age, I am really happy about this. My goal range will be 130 to 140, and my goal number is 138. That is 11.5 lbs to go, which does not sound like a lot, but I need to stay on course to get there.

    @lenka1 - You are doing great! Fantastic overall loss for July and we still have a week left!

    @1theresamcvean - Dropping a size and feeling slim in your clothes is awesome. An amazing NSV! Ok, let’s get this goal thing done together! Go Toronto!

    @sleepymom5 - That is a minor increase and really a maintain considering how much you have going on. Have fun this weekend!

    @bburrer30 - Outstanding loss, congratulations! Whatever you did really worked. Lovely photo!

    @GingerPwr - Sounds like such a nice week, enjoy the weekend too!

    @pacsnc6 - Such great news that you can switch treatments and that your hair is growing back too. You are amazing. Big hugs!

    @nstephenson01 - Your description does sound like you are having some excess sodium. I understand as sodium is a challenge for me too, along with carbs. I just started making lunch “sandwiches” with butter lettuce leave instead of bread. I was doubtful, but gave it a try. It actually is very tasty and kind of like eating some fresh tacos. Anyway, you are right that you will see the 160’s again very soon.

    @ljdanny - Sorry that you had that gain, but it is good news that you got to attend your Zumba class and you can keep them up. That really sucks with the IBS and I hope that through trial and error, you can find an approach that works for you.

    @mrsbell8well - I hope that you back is feeling better today.

    @1theresamcvean - Oh my goodness - be still, my heart! <3

    @lenka1 - congrats! That's awesome! Five pounds in a month is so impressive

    @bburrer30 - WOW, what a whoosh! Incredible what happens when your body gets rid of that excess water weight/bloat/whatever.
    Aaaaand, just gonna leave some shameless self promotion here, because I like attention.

    I hope your back is feeling better today!

    Thanks! I think I've finally got back in the right mind set!

    Although I would really like to be able to go to the gym. I get a lot of motivation there from being around other people who are also working out. Also, my trainer works me really hard and doesn't let me slack off. It's too easy for me to stop when an exercise is hard when I'm at home. Something else for me to work on.

    Thanks! It was nice being there, even as a smaller group.

    Maybe try drinking more water when you're having a higher sodium meal. Not sure if that will help much but it's worth a try.

    Great job!
    I also love that quote, even though it's hard, which I guess is actually the whole point.🤔😁

    @KUMEcyclingteam Big, big congrats on getting to goal! I got a little emotional reading your big-hearted words too. You're usually so light-hearted. You'll be great on the cheer squad.

    Friday check in
    Food - on target
    Water - 1.8l
    Exercise - 30 min walk
    Another nice day yesterday and I actually got some work done in my office in the afternoon. We had a family dinner last night and watched old episodes of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. Since we could not travel this month, it was a nice substitute, and the kids were really interested too.

    @Zumba_Luvah - Fantastic loss, wtg! You are going to see the 150’s very soon!

    @podperson1 - You are doing great, and yes absolutely, you can do this and you are! Therapy can be draining, but it is kind of like fatigue or soreness after exercise, and you feel so much better on the other side it. Keep going and we are here for you when you need us.

    @mrsbell8well - We are champion “losers”, be it weight, thoughts, habits etc. I have been here around 1.5 years (with a few months off), and I love how this is a place where we can share out ups and downs, vent, laugh and most importantly, support each other.

    @brown6267 - Fantastic maintain! You are doing great and are my role model for when I get to goal!

    @lenka1 - Yup, we have bonus days in July, so we have week 5. So get ready to lose some more!

    @tryingagain5 - Another great day! I know it can be hard to motivate ourselves at home. You trainer sounds so great as well. One thought is maybe make your work out a little commitment program. Like post a program on your wall for your workouts that week and check them off as you complete each one. Then give yourself a reward at the end. It does not have to be food, but anything that is rewarding for you.

    @lennoncpa - That gain is under a pound and not much. We have not heard from you much lately. I hope that your stressful time at work is over, and that you are doing well!

    @1theresamcvean - Your grandchild is so adorable! I forgot how messy meal time can be at that age!
