Default The Canadian Victoria Day challenge - Everyone welcome (incl. Non-Canadians!)

May long weekend is the start of summer here (well, at least on the calendar) and I think a good time for a challenge.

Set your own goal and post your progress!

Time: Victoria Day = May 23 (or your closest weigh in day)
Goal: Your choice ( x-amount lbs/kg, smaller pants size, 5k run?)
Progress: post updates at least once a week?

May the force be with you!!

I'd also like to step up to lose 5 lbs by then. Hoping for more, but 5 lbs is do-able I think!!

Goal: May 23 - 5 lbs

April 2 - 122.8 kg = 270.73 lbs

April 15 - 121.1 kg = 267.20 lbs

April 30 - 119.3 kg = 263.0 lbs - Goal reached April 30/11

Great!
I am kind of dreading Sunday (weigh in) since I peeked a few times during the week and it doesn't look good.
My mom sent us some easter candy and I think I am pretty good about it and account for what I eat. But it isn't exactly what I am supposed to eat.
Well, we will see!

I keep my fingers crossed for you! Have a great weekend!
