    My made my step goal every day but one. I am happy with that. I'm hoping it shows on the scale this week. My little grandson was born on Saturday, I am waiting to go meet him. I am so excited. They just came home from the hospital. They are introducing my granddaughter to him now, by the videos she doesn't seem impressed and wants nothing to do with him. I have their dogs and will need to return them, I think one of them will be OK but not sure about the other. I have been doing good with meal prepping and and have logged my food almost every day. I was supposed to see the nutritionist 2 weeks ago but she had a family emergency, they were supposed to call last week to reschedule but I have heard nothing. I'm hoping she's OK but between the nutritionist and the weight clinic I have been disappointed with them and trying to get in touch with them is not easy. Not sure what my plans are going to be in going forward with them.

    March Week Five

    Weigh In Day:Tuesdays
    PW (Previous Weight): 174.6 (March 22nd)
    CW (Current Weight): 174 (March 29th)
    LTD (Loss to Date): 60 lbs

    The bloat has decided to stick around. Not a fan, but at least that means my body is holding onto the water it needs to process the hell I regularly put my body through. It's been a stressful couple weeks, and it's just going to get more intense in the coming weeks. I wouldn't be surprised if I piled on even more water retention on top of this.

    The scan from last Friday has been a godsend for every time I see a number on the scale. It's one thing to know that your body is doing these things, it's another to see concrete proof. I've always had faith in the science, but there's nothing like seeing it in action.

    @MistyGoes4Goal -
    Good to know! Are you planning on coming back for May, or should I just drop you from the team?

    week ?
    Thursday check in
    PW: 154.7
    CW: 153.4

    I expect my weight will bounce for a few weeks until my stomach really settles down from the radiation treatments. I am almost two weeks out from the final treatment so thought I should get back into the swing of things here.

    Hi all! No weigh-in for me yet since I'm not in until the 4/3 challenge but just wanted to introduce myself. I found this group on the motivation boards and think it's exactly what I need. After dropping 75 pounds between Dec 2019 and June 2021, I've been bouncing up and down in the same 15 pound range since then. I'm currently bouncing in the bottom five pounds of that range so hoping to finally start seeing some new numbers on the scale.

    Hi @hititskip ! Welcome to Team Weight No More!

    I'm Ashley, one of the co-captains here, along with @melaniedscott. If you need to make any changes to your weigh day, request an excusal, or have any issues at all, do not hesitate to let us know.

    For now, if you have any questions or concerns, now is a great time to ask before we get into the swing of the new month. Getting to know your new teammates can't hurt either!

    Can't wait to get to know you better in the new month!

    PW: 139.4
    CW: 135.8

    So, the spring break bloat is mostly gone. (I don't consider this change as real loss.)

    I looked at this month's beginning weight and today's number and unfortunately today's is bigger (135.6->135.8). Not much, but still...
    I need to remember that a lot of celebrating happened in March: my birthday, my son getting his driver's license, spring break - all of that meaning eating more than usual.
    On top of that I walked less than usual. I read somewhere that according to multiple studies you don't really need to walk more than 8-10K steps a day, there's no real increase in benefits. It turns out that's probably true for others but not for me. I noticed the difference right away, not necessarily in weigh gain as I attribute that to plain eating more. But in being more lethargic, less energetic, more down, pessimistic, less cheerful. It was so much harder to get up and do anything! So after a two-week experiment I am back to aiming at 15K. On most days I am between 13-15K and even if my feet feel tired, my body feels, in general, way better.
