    I love the accountability of this forum : - )
    Tracking every bite is the key to success.

    May 01 - Going with my April end weight as I did for the last month. 135.0
    Monday May 02 - 136.8 - Ouch. Feeling leaner than that. Back to jumping around all over the place. My WW scale gave up the ghost months ago, and this new one...not sure if it really works. Very active days off, time for healthy food prep and eating. I truly expected a loss.
    May 03 - 135.6 - That is better.
    May 04 - 135.8 - Busy week, trying to have food prep ready for each dinner.
    May 05 - 137.0 - No reason for this at all. I burned more calories than I ate actually (due to long hours digging in the garden after work knowing that there would be rain to set the seeds today). I did drink more water yesterday, otherwise ate very well, worked out etc. I hate these jump ups.
    May 06 - 136.4 - I have had maybe too active of a week? Perhaps my body thinks that it must hold on to fat to save me lol. We got lovely rain yesterday to set my seeds into my garden : - )
    May 07 - 135.4 - All of that digging finally catching up on the scale? I'll take it.
    May 08 - 136.2 - Working late tonight, so it will be a late dinner.
    May 09 - 136.6 - I worked much later than even expected last night, so ate very late and was up too early. Not surprised that my weight is up today, and it might take a few days to level myself back out and settle into a rare 6 day work week.
    May 10 - 136.0
    May 11 - 135.2 - That is better, getting closer to my start weight. I was feeling lean yesterday, glad that the scale agrees.
    May 12 - 137.2 - Dang!!! 2 pounds in one day? argh
    May 13 - 137.2 - Struggling with my motivation today because of this number. I will have to give myself a good talking to.
    May 14 - 138.8 - double ouch. So happy to have a day off, I had only one last week and then worked 6 in a row with both jobs including getting up very early and working very late. I was truly exhausted, and the late dinners seem to affect my weight. No choice on the dinner front when I work so late. Going to try to refuse any of those next week. Lol, today will be catching up on laundry and all of the stuff that I couldn't get to. Hoping to get out for a nice hike if the weather holds, and a bunch of little workouts here and there.
    May 15 - 137.4 - Planning a very active day off today: workouts, a hike, cutting the grass.
    May 16 - 137.6 - I am going out to a comedy show tonight, so will try to keep my dinner when I get home small.
    May 17 - 136.6 - Hmmm. I thought that it would be the other way around after being up late and then getting up early. Good laughs maybe released some fat?
    Wednesday May 18 - 137.6 - Big calorie burn day, after work I went hard in the garden until almost dark, then had a late dinner. Today might be the same.
    May 19 - 139.0
    May 20 - 139.6 - Not sure what is going on with me. Of course not happy about the extra pounds on the scale.
    Leaving on a mini holiday right after work today. I will be taking my scale with me but am not sure if I will find time for the forums for a few days. I am packing food to take. Eating out is something that I will avoid except for coffee in cafes. 90% rain in the forecast so I don't know if I will get any hiking in, but will definitely be going to the parade, the street fair, the farmer's market, the midway etc. I will get workouts in on my phone or laptop in my motel and a bit of walking around the Blossom Festival and Rodeo grounds.
