Height: 5'7.5"


Another slow week. I'd lost a couple pounds, but gained most of it back somehow over the past couple days during an experiment to up my calories by 200 per day. Didn't work! Lesson learned, ha. Back up to where I was last Thursday at 234.8 today. Which makes for just 0.6 lbs down this week. Then again, I've also been low on water this week, so I'll focus on that for this next week, as well. Hope everyone's doing okay!

amandie: Thanks! And, good job to you, too! You might not make exactly as much progress as you hoped for in the beginning, but the fact that you're still here and maintaining is a sign of nothing but good things! You've already grown so much stronger than you used to be if you'd have flaked by now. So, in my book, that is a success all its own. Hopefully, you will join another challenge with us when this one is through!

SW: 265.2

4/3: 259.2
4/10: 255.8
4/17: 253.0
4/24: 251.0

5/1: 248.0

I lost all of my progress and gained the weight back (and then some!) during my pregnancy and subsequent hiatus back in 2014 and hadn't lost a pound since...but, I am back again - as of 12.28.16 - and, I am determined to see it through this time. I owe it to my son and, most importantly, myself to become healthy again. Let's do this!

One dragonfly for every 10 lbs lost, so far:
