Well, that sucks. I've been on-plan all week, but my weight has been bouncing up and down like crazy. Water retention issue of some sort, I'm guessing. My 7-day average looks fine, but today's weight looks baaaaaaaaad.

Good Morning Ladies, I need to keep the Focus and willing to share

Sum, It is hard to keep focused but I know you'll get back on track. I like your idea of fasting for a day. I got mad at myself last Tues when I weighed in at 157.5(1/2 lb from where I started on this challenge). So I'm doing No whites for a while and trying to increase my exercising. Going in the right direction now - need to keep it going (down).

Lulu, You must be so excited to see 149 - Yippee! Hope I'm joining you in four weeks or less.

Olivia, Wow girl, you are on fire, over 20 pounds

My goal for this challenge will be to reach: 149

Hey BigChiefHoHo...just noticed your post about graphing--sorry, I'm not on this thread as often as I am on the calcounters or decades....I do the same thing on Excel--I've been averaging daily weigh-ins and daily calories and logging every morsel eaten. I agree, the weekly average plots keep me from going insane.

You showed me yours, now I'll show you mine:
(black dots=weekly ave weights along with the solid black trendline; yellow dots=weekly ave cals)

I need to refocus because I'm just staying the course. I'm good at using excuses like too many papers to grade to control my snacking and evening wine. Or whine! I'll be at the beach house in 5 weeks. I want to drop below 150 and get to maybe 145. Current weight is 152, but they say Sunday is the heaviest weight of the week. It's a beautiful, sunny week here in California.

P.s. I'm computer challenged and can't figure out how to do those trackers

Oh boy - I have had a bad couple of weeks. I had been stuck at 152 for about three weeks and I got so disheartened. Then we had pancake day and I ate too many pancakes with ice cream and chocolate sauce, and then just went a bit silly for a couple of weeks. This morning was back up to 156, so I am back on the wagon. I'm still down 12 overall so I haven't been totally wasting my time. Not sure I'll make 140 by Easter though - might have to try to 150 instead. or maybe 149, just to smash that pesky decade.

I have also had a bad few weeks. I tried to take my exercise class an additional time a week, and started going to gym 3x week for 2 hours of elliptical, treadmill and amt machine (I think that is what it is called). + walking more here and there for more steps.

Somehow that made me gain weight and I know it was not muscle as muscle gains are not made that quickly in women. So I kind of had a meltdown where I did not go to the gym or exercise class. Now I am just starting back up again, since I got back down to my starting point. Not so much though, I don't have time between work and that exercise schedule for anything.

I lost only 0.9lbs (0.4kg) in the last 4 weeks and I'm getting a bit frustrated. I lost at least a pond per week before and didnít change my diet now. I can still reach my goal if I lose 1.6lbs (0.7kg) per week in the next month, but I think I have to change something.
In the past week I tried exercising every day thinking Iíll start to lose again, but it didnít work. Iím a calorie counter, usually 1200 per day. Should I try zigzagging (one day 500 and the other next day 1500 and so on) or switching to a protein diet? Iím not fond of any of those two (I think I will suffer giving up fruit or fasting) Ė so Iím open to an alternative suggestion.

Start Weight 14/02/2014: 193.8 (87.9kg)
