Check in Time
I'm down to 259.6 - that's 9lbs. since Monday! I know it's mostly water weight, but never the less I made one of my goals for May!

My other 2 goals for May are daily check ins & 1300 - 1400 cals. a day.

The daily check in really helps to keep me focused. I get sidetracked and then binging if I don't keep my program in mind every day.

Hope everyone has a good day !

Congrats to all who have lost, as well as to everyone who have been OP.

I have lost 2 pounds this week, altho' I have been eating a little bit off my plan, and exercising very little.
I get headaches if I eat within my plan which is 1200-1400 cals. daily.
I'm eating close to 2000 calories, but I can see that I can still lose some weight, which means that I have been eating a way lot more calories before I started counting calories.

I will have to change my goal for this May challenge from losing 8.8 pounds to 7.3 pounds. Still quite ambitious since I tend to lose weight very SLOW, but I'll try.
This goal will take me to 148.5 pounds, and I'm now at 153.8 lbs. so I hope I can lose 5.3 pounds in 3 weeks.

Good luck everyone.

Today is my first "official weigh day" for this challenge. I weigh every-day but for the sake of this thread I'm only recording once a week. My SW was 169.8 and I'm now at 167.8 so that's exactly a 2lb loss in the first week. I'm super excited since my weight loss has been stalled for a couple of weeks.

Happy Mother's Day

Good OP day yesterday. I'm down another 1lb. this morning. That's exactly 10lbs. in a week! I must have been totally water logged from all the binging.

I imagine I'll go back to a respectable 1-2 pounds a week from here on out.

No big plans for today. It's very cold here with freeze warnings for tonight. Might take a walk if it stops raining.

Happy Monday! I hope everyone is ready for the week ahead. I had a wonderful Mother's day being spoiled by my family. I ate too much but then got lots of activity, so it didn't net too much damage. Back to the "norm" today. I need to get some meal planning done. This week I have to get a lot done around the house, so I'm not gonna linger here much, but I wanted to sneak in some personals today. Mom's garage sale is this weekend and I REALLY want to get rid of a lot of stuff. Also, my grandparents are coming to see the house this weekend on their trip up from Illinois (to help with the sale), so I want it to look decent because who knows when/if they'll be back to see it again anytime soon (they live about 7 hours away).

susiemartin-I'm so glad you saw those nice results quickly to get you back on track. Take the losses as they come and be grateful. You are doing wonderfully!

Hopeful8-Well.....did you hit the 40 lb mark today? I'm excited for you to hit such a milestone!

lesmith-Hopefully your morning included time for C25K. It was the program that got me back to running after doing very little for a LONG time. I'm a huge fan of the C25K program!

How was everybody’s weekend?
Is it normal that after a plateau we start to lose weight quickly without doing changes in our routine?
My update:
Sw: 167.4
Cw: 162.8
Gw1: 165 (done)
Gw2: 160 (2.8 to go)
WL: 4.6
