    Challenge Starting Weight: (From April 30th) 207.9
    Challenge Level: ✴✴✴
    Challenge Goal weight: 192.9



    05/01 – 207.7 Good luck everyone!
    05/06 – 204.9 Traveling today, which is never good in the food OR exercise category. I will try to maintain some degree of self-control and dignity however, being from a very very small town, entering the city is mind-blowing and temptation is on every corner. I’ve got to stay cool.
    05/09 – 204.8 Making progress but traveling today which will be a set-back in both diet and exercise. I’ll work hard to mitigate any damage all week. It’s my birthday on Mother’s Day so I am going to give myself the present of progress!
    05/13 - 205.1 Notsogood after travel this past week but I’m back and stronger than ever!
    05/20 - 204.3 Better, but still not up to my standards. Working harder is in my future.
    05/27 - 205.0 Better than my starting weight but higher than my previous weigh-in so my plan is to turn this ship back around! I guess I may have indulged a bit too much for the US holiday weekend? No excuses, time to make more changes!
    05/31 – 206.8 A bad weight following travel. More travel expected on the 1st. Ugg. All days in-between I am staying as mindful as my will allows. Most days good.


    06/01 – 206.8 Good Luck in June Everyone!
    06/03 – 208.8 After Travel weigh-in. I’ll work to move this in the right direction again Likity-Split!
    06/10 – 211.0 More travel this past week and more poor choices. Turning this train around!
    06/17 – 208.4 Better, but I’m struggling with glucose drops that require carbs I don’t have within my plan. This is going to be harder than I even anticipated.
    06/24 –
    06/30 – 207.9 I don’t know how I missed last week but I am still here. Treading water basically and up & down with the same pound. Such a tremendous lack of time is standing in the way of my food planning, food prep and consistent logging. I must try to do better.


    07/01 – 207.9
    07/08 – 208.4 fluid retention I think.
    07/15 – 209.6 This stinx

    Making progress but I'm struggling with not quite feeling satisfied and more often than I'd like, I'm a bit hungry. I may need to adjust things this coming week. Any advice or tips?

    Try increasing the lean protein, food that has fiber, and make sure you have enough water.

    If all else, increase your calorie intake a little.

    Total Loss: 6.2 lbs

    I originally was going to try to lose maybe 15 lbs I think but I knew that wouldn't be possible after the lack of pounds lost. I am fine with my loss, it's not what I first wanted but I wouldn't have it any other way. I don't like not losing weight, but I didn't gain so it's a win to me. And I think it's good to maintain weight every here and there because it gives me a chance to reassess my goals and get antsy with staying that weight so I get motivated to lose more. It's good to have stretches of "blah" so you remember why you never want to go back to the way things were.
    Fantastic job, everyone! And to those of you who struggled or didn't make your weight loss goal: it's okay. You're here, participating, and trying. That's amazing! Take a breath, think back to why you started, and why you want this. It's okay to have bad days or months or years, just remember to get back up and keep going! You're doing great! :heart:
