I need to update my weight. As of this morning I am 208 not 205.
I do ok during the week, but the weekends kill me. THis weekend I will be going out to lunch on Saturday with the in-laws for mother's day lunch.
Then on Sunday, we are taking my mom out for breakfast and I LOOOOVE
pancakes. Hopefully I can stay on track.

Weigh-In
SW: 222lb
5/7: 220lb
Finally back on track (nearly!), was off for about 3 weeks sorta eating whatever I wanted whenever I wanted... not completely out of control or binging, but definitely ate some things I should have said "no" to. And I did gain back 6 lb. Hopefully that's all out of my system now... I think I'd been working at it for so long (9 months) that I just needed a break! But I'm sick of the 220s now, ready to move on! :D

I'm doing terrible. I have had an extermely stressful and busy week. My Aunt Died on May 1st, then we put in an offer on a house on May 6th, my husband's birthday on May 6th, Aunt's funeral May 7, two Mother's day celebration's one Saturday and one Sunday. My neck was bothering me so cancelled training session on May 5th. I couldn't get it re-scheduled for Friday. My eating has been off plan. I worked out on Elliptical on May 9th and with trainer yesterday May 10th. But still struggling to get back on plan.
We found out on Mother's Day we got the house. So stressed about packing and moving. Hope Everyone is doing better than me. Eventually, things will get back to normal. Now if I can just stop Stress Eating.

How is Everyone, Doing? I haven't had a very good month. I lose and then I gain and then I lose weight again. But will keep trying. I don't know if I can make my goal by the end of July. But who knows. Good Luck, Everyone!

Ugh... I haven't seen much progress in May either, but I'm figuring that any pounds lost by July represents progress! Still hoping and working hard to get back on track.

7/20(my birthday!)GW: 199

Will have some major challenges this weekend. Celebrating my parents 50th anniversary and the whole family is going on a spa weekend retreat. Many opportunities to make bad choices: There are buffets offered 5 times a day PLUS meals:yikes: I'm planning ahead, hope to make more good choices than not, and plan to stay active. I''d love to lose again next week, but maintaining would still be a success:dizzy:

Hope everyone is doing well!

Hello all I seriously doubt I make it to onderland by July but I dont care as long as i progress lol! Onederland is 25lbs away for me at this point and so far it has been the hardest goal to reach. WHenever I get in the 2teens I end up falling off the wagon. So if I get there by the end of august I will be soooo happy probably to tears!

We CAN do this:)

So up a pound:(

5/3 SW:225.5
5/24: 222
5/31: 219!
6/7: 220

But I'm kinda grateful it was ONLY one pound. I was out of town for four days. Stayed at a luxurious hotel celebrating my parents 50th anniversary. Lots of food offered around the clock(think cruise style). I made the best choices possible, watched portion sizes, said no thank you a lot and had 1-2 controlled indulgences. It was a great time spent with family and I'm back on track!

So yeah, gonna hope on the band wagon and say there is NO way I'm hitting 199 by July, but still working working working at it... any progress is good progress! I'm still sitting right at 219lb... would LOVE to get down to my mini goal of 216 soon... ugh. I've been here, right around 220, plus/minus a couple lb, for 2 months! It's been a pretty good week, but scale hasn't really budged. I'm feeling more dedicated, we'll see what the next couple weeks bring. Good luck to all!
