I was quite concerned today that I was going to bump back up over 200, so while I was not happy to see the increase, I was glad to still see a 1. I've said before that when I'm sick, I either have no appetite at all and don't eat ANYTHING or else I go crazy and eat EVERYTHING. Well, hubby has had the flu for 2 days and now I'm coming down with it and I think that is why I'm eating EVERYTHING right now. I overate at dinner Friday and then Yesterday, I just couldn't curb my eating. I had 2 handfuls of peanuts, an entire bag of popcorn, about 5 times as much chocolate as I normally have, pasta, (all that on top of my 3 meals) and absolutely no fruits or vegetables the entire day. And I was still looking for more. I did manage to talk myself out of the frozen fudge bar I wanted at bedtime. WOW! First time I've gone over my TDEE in a long time, and I still wanted more. They do say "feed a fever" so maybe eating more is a good thing, but blah!

Thanks sgregg, you had an amazing month this month.

Lacerta, I feel your pain on the snacking! I was that way last week, but I am pretty sure it was because my TOM was coming. How do you feel now? Do you know for sure that you have the flu? It's starting up around my area. One of my friends said they saw 109 patients today in their little pediatric office! Hopefully, you will get through it quickly and painlessly.

sgregg: I haven't fully come down with it. My hubby had it for sure. So far, I've had a few days of feeling "off", but I've been fighting it off. I'm crediting my healthy eating for boosting my immune system.

I had a really good fall...was down to 167 which is about 3- to 5- lbs from "goal".

But, I indulged A LOT over the Holidays....and seem to not be able to reduce with any ease. I am back up to 175.0 lbs.

So, officially I have 10 lbs to lose. Again. I swear I have lost these 10 lbs (and gained them, again...) about 4,582 times at this point.

My goal weight for 2019 is 150 lbs. I was on vacation for most of January so I didn't get started until the end of the month. I was 215 when I got back from vacation but most of it was water weight. I need to lose around 6 lbs a month to get to my goal by the end of the year. I think that sounds doable.

I've now been in this new lifestyle for a full year (tomorrow). It was a good year overall, lost over 70 pounds, which is awesome, but it didn't end very well. This week marks the first time in that year that I've had two up weeks in a row. Hopefully, that means this next week, I will have a significant whoosh, because I've been as much as nearly 4 pounds lower than today's weigh in. I've had a couple of meals that weren't what I planned for the day, because of Jury Duty this week, but I never went over on calories, so I have to assume this is mostly just water. Hoping for a 4 pound loss this week to get back to my low (which was this week, so I'm possibly retaining 4+ pounds of water)

to Daydreamer and AllyG for breaking into Onederland this month.

I've been in a massive plateau, and lost a whopping 0.6 pounds in March. But that is always better than gaining.

Thankyou Lacerta! Plateaus are so frustrating! I also struggled with my loss slowing down and I was about to lose my mind, I ended up missing my goal for the month and getting behind by 2 lbs for my trip goal. I did find this article though (now IDK how factual it might be, but I thought I'd share anyway) and it's helped me a lot in terms of how I see my progress. I'll leave the link in case you want to check it out.

Anyway, 3 months gone, 7 more to go! Let's try our very best!

Thanks Daydreamer. I've actually read that article before (I'm big on research, so I swear I've read every article on the internet this year about weight loss). I'm not sure whether I agree with the explanation of the why, because from everything I have read, there is no scientific proof that our cells replace fat with water and then whoosh it away later, but while I may not agree with the explanation, I absolutely agree that the phenomenon is real. And my whoosh has finally arrived. I'm down almost 4 pounds in 4 days, so my March fat loss is finally showing on the scale, which is fabulous. It happened last time I plateaued also. The week I broke the plateau, I had one of my best weeks ever and lost over 4 pounds. I'm hoping to do that again this week.

Looking back at my history, even with the 6 week plateau, I've still averaged about a pound a week since the beginning of the year. There have been just over 13 weeks this year so far and I'm now down just over 13 pounds. So that I why I can handle the plateaus when they hit. I know I'm still doing the work and making progress, even if it isn't showing up right now.

I'm pretty much back to my SW for this challenge. I started at 202 LBS. I weighed in at 201.8 on Friday April 26, 2019. I need to get remotivated and start losing again. I can still reach my GW this year. Good Luck, Everyone!

Halfway point today.

So my goal for 2019 is 37.8 pounds. Half of that is 18.9. So far this year, I'm down 21.8. So very slightly ahead of schedule. I've had some pretty slow months, and some better months, but overall, I'm doing about what I'd hoped to average. I have 16 pounds to go in the next 6 months to get to my goal for the year, and around 35-40ish to get to my ultimate goal weight. I've been failing on the weight lifting front, though. I need to try to step that up the second half the year.

Hope everyone is having a good year so far. And if not, today is a new day.
