Thanks for starting up April's thread gardenerjoy.

So last month, I had lofty aspirations, but ended up plateaued the entire month and only lost about half a pound the whole month. So I'm going to set this month's goals exactly the same as last month and hopefully it is a better month all around.

ok, i'm going to join the 'proper' dieters for the next 3 weeks and plot my weights.
For the first time I've properly gained about 1kg in March and am now above my "DANGER-do-something" number. I was 52.1kg this morning (114.6lb) after avoiding the scales for a while!!
I'm doing a mountainous 3-day pack-carrying trek on 19-21st April which is going to be physically tough for me, so I really want to drop that kg and improve my diet over the next 3 weeks before I go. Therefore i'm going to weigh in daily and record along with everyone else :)
My plan is to cut down on all the extra rubbish that I've been consuming recently - eg extra pieces of bread, chocolate, sauces, portion sizes in general
For me, the eating part is what I need to tackle for weight loss - the exercise i'm doing already and enjoying, but it doesn't affect my weight.

Hi! I’d love to join this challenge! I’m hoping this will help provide the motivation and accountability that I need to be successful. I’ve been struggling to stay on track. I’m feeling good about this upcoming month and I think it’s going to be a successful one.

My my goal is to lose 15 pounds this month.

SW: 288.2

I feel like this is the start of breaking my plateau. This isn't a new low, but I've only been lower one day. This time, I am going to continue downward. I have a really good feeling about this week. I'm going to get to change my avatar to a 75 pound one by this Sunday (needs a 192.4 for that), and my average weight for the week is going to be below 195 for the first time.

Thank you everyone for your encouragement and kind words while I've been stuck. They've kept me coming back every day.

Great to join the April challenge. I may do better on a month challenge versus a 5 pound challenge :)
Edited to add my goal for April is to get to 159 ... lose 4.5 pounds.

ange82much 04-01-2019 05:44 PM

Alright. Job done. Back to the chocolate!
No.
Don't know where today's number came from but it's definitely not typical of me at the moment and i'm keen to improve my food choices in April. Think I was dehydrated this morning, but had a good weights session at the gym :)

Hi everyone :)

I would love to join in on this challenge. Life has been somewhat busy in the past couple of years with school and transitioning to my first career job. As a result, fitness took a backseat. Now that I'm settling in with my new job, I would love to focus on my health once again. I'm currently sitting at 136 and would love to be at 129 for this month. My goal is 7lbs which is quite ambitious for me. Cheers to all of us getting to our goals this month :).

Newlyn 04-02-2019 09:39 AM

Thanks for starting the new thread @gardenerjoy!

I'm not going to set a goal this month because I think this is the third month I'm starting at the same weight, despite losing during the month, and it's too depressing to miss every goal.

SW: 261.5

1) 261.5
2) 260.5

Newlyn: You're still here and working on it, which is the important part. I've now been through 2 major plateaus (6+ weeks each) and come out the other side. My philosophy to get me through it is twofold. First, what is quitting going to get me? Nothing but more fat. If I stick with it, I may or may not lose more weight, but at least I'll be eating in a healthier manner. And Second, since it is a long term lifestyle change, and not a short term diet, what I am doing now have become default habits, so I would have to purposefully change my lifestyle back to what I was doing before and that would just be stupid of me to do that after coming all this way. Sometimes the best thing you can do is accept that "ok, I'm not going to lose anything today (or this week), clearly, but what can I do about tomorrow?" If it is just an unexplained plateau, then the answer may be just "wait it out", but maybe the answer is that I need to look for another small change I can make. For me this week, that was cutting back again on chocolate intake, which had crept up and going on a fast food hiatus, since I was going out to eat more often than usual. Looks like it is working. Maybe step back and take a look at the big picture and see if there is a small change you can make to improve your progress.

ange: Step away from the chocolate. Seriously though, I had a feeling you'd find it was mostly just bloat and get right back on track. You've done amazing at maintenance and I knew you'd drop the extra very quickly. Way to go!

Hey, a new low, finally! FIrst time seeing a 192 number. And just shy of letting me change my avatar. Maybe tomorrow, but definitely this week. I'm feeling good right now and ready to kick some butt.
