    05/11 I adjusted all my goals downward a bit. I initially set them as 5lbs a month as per my start weight but I dropped a few by the first check in so I changed them. A bit more hopeful but we'll see how it goes.
    05/20 Not an auspicious week given zero loss but hey I haven't gained either and I'm not going to mention the number of Reese peanut butter cups I've eaten in the last three days.
    05/25 I'm going to optimistically think it's actually 169.5 but an old scale isn't really the best for small measurements. There is still one week left of may so my June 1st and May actual will be the same.
    06/01 Made it to my May goal if only just. Those pounds just didn't want to go. Hopefully this month goes a bit smoother.
    06/09 Good week. More time walking to/from work with this nice weather rather than on the road probably helped.
    06/15 ok week. Ruining my good start this week by eating an ice cream sandwich for breakfast today. Totally worth it😄
    06/23 Couldn't get on here yesterday mfp kept telling me Community was unavailable🤷‍♀️ Weighed in at 164 yesterday though and somehow after eating over my cal yesterday this morning my scale says down another half pound (I think anyway, it's an old analogue not digital scale. I can be hopeful anyway🤣)
    06/29 162?? I don't know how I managed that cause I over ate multiple days this week but maybe I didn't add the right amount of exercise calories 🤷‍♀️ Oh or possibly overestimated my calories. I don't have a food scale so with foods that aren't easily measured from larger packages I kind of well Guess? Like ribs. I totally had ribs and guessed the hell out of how much I ate😅
    07/02 Just on to put up June's final / July's start. Made it to a pound under my June goal. Very happy.
    07/06 Slow and steady as she goes. Going to drop off my best friend's birthday stuff sometime this week hopefully. Haven't seen her since new years day cause of all this social distancing. I hope she notices I've lost weight since we last got together. 😅I also kind of hope she doesn't say anything cause I'm so freaking awkward like that.
    161 marks 25lbs down since I started mfp end of February😶🙂(I'm celebrating with an ice cream cone😅)
    07/13 Ok maybe I should have skipped the ice cream last week😅 still no gain though so I'm ok with it.

    07/21 I forgot to weigh in yesterday whoops? Eh nothing worth reporting anyway.

    It’s been hot and humid this week and because Of that I’ve spent more time on my treadmill this week than last. Which is nice because I’ve been able to sleep in a bit and not have to go at 6AM(coolest part of day that hasn’t been cool and it’s been horribly humid). I actually got three runs in. I can not wait to get below 150, that is my next minor goal.
