    July starting weight: 184.8
    July goal: 182

    7/1 - 184.8 a new "low" on this journey down. A little scary starting the month with a low as I bounce up and down many times during the month.
    7/2 - 185.2 slight bounce up, but it's ok. Fireworks tonight!
    7/3 -
    7/4 - 187.0

    7/5 - 188.0 ugh daily jumps but back on track today. It's fluid retention but it'll still take all week to shed.
    7/6 - 187.0 off to the Y today for a run and some weight machines. I think dinner is going to be a hunk of meat and a veg.
    7/7 - 186.2 my silly scale gave me 185.2 2x, then on the 3rd jumped up a pound and stayed there for 2 more times. So I'm going with the higher even though I liked the first number much better. I go with whatever number displays 3x, first lol. No run yesterday, the lovely FL hurricane is affecting air pressure, which bothers my 4 and 6 year old fractures in my left foot and leg...didn't even know I hurt until I tried running. I did walk though, and used the rowing machine. Will walk again today, either on the treadmill or outside if it doesn't rain.
    7/8 - 185.4 didn't walk yesterday, worked too late. Still struggling with putting myself higher on the priority list. Raining today, still achy...
    7/9 - 185.4 I'll take it as a win today. TGIF!!
    7/10 - 185.4 at least I'm being consistent and not bouncing lol Happy weekend!!
    7/11 - 187.0 guess I got slapped for yesterday's comment lol

    7/12 - 187.2 ok, gotta control weekends. I have a work conference in mid-September and none of my work clothes fit! I have a deadline and need a solid loss.
    7/13 - 186.6 got a run in last night, planning on the Y today
    7/14 - 186.0 planning a walk today, either outside or inside if it rains. So over all the rain...10 days of it and it makes my old bone breaks hurt.
    7/15 - 186.6 no idea why I'm up today but didn't walk yesterday. It's a new day!
    7/16 - 187.6 up again...yesterday I ran and weights at the Y, good food. Whatever.

    July Starting Weight: 141.4
    July Goal Weight: 137

    7/1: 141.4
    7/2: 140.8
    7/3: 140.8
    7/4: 141
    7/5: 140.8
    7/6: 140.8 This is getting silly!
    7/7: 140.8 This is the most stuckest I’ve ever been. There better be a big whoosh after this!
    Week 1 Loss: -0.6

    7/8: 140.8 This is impossible. Not even a wiggle!
    7/9: 141 Well at least its different haha!
    7/10: 140 About time!!
    7/11: 139.4 New decade!
    7/12: 139.8
    7/13: 139
    7/14: 139.8 I ate dinner later than usual, may be the reason for this little bump. I was within my calorie limit.
    Week 2 Loss: -0.6

    7/15: 140.2 For the past week or so, when I ate over 1100 calories, I gained the next day. So I'm gonna stay under 1100 for the foreseeable future, except for special occasions. I have a birthday party to attend Saturday and a family reunion the next Saturday, so there will be some significant face stuffage then.
    7/16: 140
    7/17: 141.6 Had a fairly hefty dinner last night, so this is mostly sodium and actual weight of the food, which is still with me.

    Dearest @Chalmation,
    A diet so low in calories could be dangerous!
    I've read that sometimes we stop loosing weight because consuming such few calories can put our bodies into starvation mode.
    Have you checked the science behind the Zig Zag diet to jumpstart weight loss after a plateau? There are also Zig Zag diet calculators out there.
    With much respect and care,

    Starvation mode is a myth. We're fat, we're not starving haha!
    I don't do diets that have names. CICO for me!!
    I think my issue is that I am close to my normal weight range and loss can slow down at that point. Also, well, for several days at a time what goes in, doesn't come out.
