Oh boy!! That sounds awful! Hoping you get better ASAP! 2lbs down is still 2lbs down regardless of how, LOL.

I am stopping the daily weigh-ins, despite that I know daily fluctuations are totally normal and that the scale is not a perfect tool, not seeing lower numbers does affect me somewhat. I'm only stepping on the scale on Sundays for weigh-ins, that's it.

Doing mostly great on the food and exercise parts, I just wish the scale would reflect that! I think I need to do some or something to zen out.

I understand that amandie....daily weigh ins use to affect my day of how I would eat/act/exercise....So I leave it to once a week as well:-)

I just made a 4th of July challenge if any of you would like to join at any time, even after this challenge is done. I totally need all the motivation I can soak up especially with summertime coming up. That is when I start to waver and go off track slowly with all the food and booze.

I hope everyone else is doing great!! I am doing okay with food and workouts so far although still maintaining 166. I'm just gonna be very patient (not one of my best virtues but I'm trying! )

Have a great weekend, all!

So disappointed with yesterday's WI- 171 but I am on TOM and drank a lot on Friday so hoping that's just all a ton of water weight, lol. I am seriously buckling down now, no more playing around AND no more drinking (that was my original goal on this thread and I really neeeeeed to stick with it until then!)

I'm going to stay on track with the food and exercise if I want to make goal. Hoping everyone else is having a better go of it than I am!

I've really been struggling which is why I haven't been checking in, but I'm hoping to still make my goal of 10lbs.

Hope everyone else is having an easier time than I am.

Slowly but surely moving in the right direction -- I'm hopeful that I can make it!

amandie, hope the weigh-in has good news this week.

How are you doing, anewbody?

Hey everyone...just checking in. Counting down with 10 days left. I'm not going to make my goal of 10 pounds lost, but will be at 6, "IF" I maintain what I have now and lose 2 more. Psychologically being at 185 would be GREAT!

Sorry I've been absent lately. Just busy...but staying on track as best I can!

Crow- Thank you!

Moondance, I will not be able to make my goal of 159 too.

I finally hit 165.4 this am, yesterday 165.6. Seriously SO happy! LOL. This was my first serious stall/plateau in my whole WL journey since 226lbs. Definitely humbling and I will not discount any .5, even .1 losses! For now, I will take what I can by Mother's day. Probably 2lbs at best.

Hope everyone else is faring better!

Thank you again, Crow. You are doing awesome, you've practically hit your goal for this challenge!

Thank you, anewbody. I am looking forward to Mother's Day too!

165.0! Another pound gone! I started this challenge at 169 (I had to go back to the first page and check, haha) with goal weight of 159. Not quite there but I am still 4lbs down so that's a plus!
