Wow, I can't believe it's august already!

This time I'm resisting the urge to set a goal under 80. My goal will be to lose 3kgs, which is achievable but still a good challenge. Good luck to us all!

SW: 83,5 kgs
GW: 80,5 kgs

This is my first challenge so I'm not sure how much is too much, my head says it wants 10lbs but that might be too much so I'm going to go with 8

If I can lose this 2.9 lbs in August, I will be only 2.5 lbs away from my goal Since I lost 3.4 in July, this should be a breeze, right?
