Had to weigh in a day early because I'll be camping(!) this weekend. Unfortunately no loss. I'm up 0.8, which I'm thinking may be due to exercise. Last week when I weighed in I had 2 rest days right before that and a 2 pound associated woosh.

I'm doing well with staying active but I really need to try harder with my deficit.

Down 0.4 this week. I know it's better than a gain, but I really did well with eating (measuring, not taking bites from the kids' meals, not going over calories) this week, and I started my walking routine again (3 miles every morning). I suppose it could be the walking. I hesitate to call it exercise, though I usually walk briskly and finish in under an hour.

I am debating adding calories, maybe my daily calories are too low (1320 plus I eat back additional activity calories earned). It seems so counter-intuitive though. I may stay where I'm at for one more week then think about it again next week.

I have been in the 170s for months now. I'm seriously getting frustrated!!!

I just got back from a week at the beach where I ate and drank everything in sight. Sees Easter candy was also problematic. I can't even face the scale. My last weigh in was 153 but I'm sure I'm way up. Totally recommitted now for challenge 3. My daughter's graduating in June and my mom and I are taking her to Europe for three weeks. I'm going to meet my goal of 140 this time.

This is me, except I'm not so far into my weight loss journey as forkeeps. It seems like things we're rolling right along at a couple pounds a week until I started actually getting disciplined. I just started and I'm morbidly obese; I don't think it's unreasonable to expect more than a half pound. Sigh... oh well, I'm in it for the long haul, so I'll just keep on keeping on and if things don't improve, I'll adapt and overcome.

First, I realized I've never used the spreadsheet, hope that's okay. It appears to require a gmail account which I don't have, and don't want. If it's okay with you, just logging into this thread is enough for me. I love seeing everybody's progress. This is going to be a great challenge!

And getting back to my last post about possibly upping my calories, I went ahead and took the plunge and raised my calories. It's scary, but I'll find out how it impacts my weight next Saturday on weigh-in day. I use MFP and changed the goals from "One pound per week" to "Half pound per week". Gave me almost 200 extra calories. I have been really tired lately, I'm wondering if my walking/running is too much for the amount of calories I had been eating. Hoping this helps.

Has anyone else raised their daily calories and had success? It seems counter-intuitive, but at this point I'll try anything.
