Thanks for starting up June's thread gardenerjoy. How in the world did it get to be June already?!?

I'm in a reasonably slow, but steady loss for this year so far. We're about 21 weeks in to the year, and I'm down around 21 pounds, so right around a pound a week. If I could keep that up for the remainder of the year, I'd be 100 pounds down by around the end of summer, and end up very close to my goal weight, which would be awesome.

SW: 184.4
May GW: 180.0

Upcoming minigoals:
183.4 - 6 stone lost **Met 6/3/19
182.0 - 13 stone
(I'm not British, but I track in stone, kgs and pounds to give me lots of minigoals, and these are the only ones in reach at the moment, as BMI 28-29 was sort of a hole in my minigoal list)

Week One
01: 183.8
02: 184.6
03: 183.4
04: 184.2
05: 184.4

11: 185.0
12: 185.6

Total Loss for Week Two: -0.8

Bonus Days
29: 183.8
30: 183.4
----------------------------
Total Loss for Bonus Days: -0.8
Total loss for Entire Month: -1.0

My current measurements (to the nearest .25 inch) are:
Neck: 13.5
Bicep: 12.75
Forearm: 10.75
Chest: 41
Waist: 35.5
Belly/Hips: 43

Good luck this month, everyone and enjoy those spring/summer healthy foods! (at least for those in the northern hemisphere)

I'm in!
I just want to motivate myself to stay on track with the healthy eating until I go away to Europe on 23rd (which will be a week business then a week of family visits).

It would be nice to lose 1kg (2lb) so that I have a touch of wiggle room to use when i'm away, but mainly I just want to carry on doing what I started doing 9 days ago, until then. My main motivation now is getting as fit and healthy as I can in the next 3 months before a 3-week trekking trip on 1st Sept.

The plan til 23rd june then is to carry on with my mini-'clense' of I) avoid processed foods, ii) no chocolate/sugar/crisps/crackers/rubbish. iii) no white carbs. Since the rules are all mine, i'm allowed the odd glass of wine

And i'll be alternating cardio and weights classes at the gym Monday-Friday as usual, and a trek when possible on a Saturday.

GardenerJoy, if you're wanting hard numbers, put me down as 112 by the end of the month (23rd in my case), which is a touch low for me, but gives me the wiggle!

I'd like to join in!

I haven't been as consistent as I would have liked to be in the past six months, but now that my life has calmed itself down a bit, I am up for a challenge. My motivation this year is switching industries come 2020 and bringing my health under control. Also, I have three weddings and a High School reunion to go to before the year ends and I would like to not have to buy new dresses when I like the ones I already own. I haven't been kind to myself in the past decade and desperately need to change that.

My intentions for the month of June is to intermittently fast, increase my daily water intake, and to cut back on my bread intake.

SW: 235lbs.
June GW: 225lbs.

Welcome kitkat. Don't feel like you need to do measurements just because I did. I mean, I find them to be a great tool, but most people on here don't post theirs. In other words, post them if you want to, but it isn't a requirement. Actually, there are no requirements. Some people prefer not to weigh in every day, so only post once a week, or once every few days. That is totally ok too. Do only what works for you and motivates you. If something doesn't seem like it will help you, don't do it.

Welcome again ange. You'll drop those 2 pounds in no time. You are doing so amazing in maintenance. You are my inspiration. When I get to my goal, I want to be just like you.

Awww thanks, Lacerta!
I'm not very inspirational right now as i'm sat here with a glass of wine, but I did do a big trek today with two big up-and-downs. Plenty of calories consumed too but I give myself some slack when out hiking all day. I like weekends

Hi everyone. I've taken ~6 weeks off with some stressful life stuff. I still need to learn how to deal with that while staying on-plan. In the past 6 weeks I think I've been responsible for all of Cadbury's profit! I've eaten so much chocolate I'm sick of the sight of it. I've also been eating with my family, whereas I'd been organising my own food. My vegetable intake has been pitiful... I figure that I'm better off here with you guys, checking in and being motivated, than eating share bags of chocolate buttons!
I haven't weighed in since the last time I posted and I'm assuming that I've put on a fair few pounds. Both my eating and exercise have been awful so I'm expecting the worst. It's too late to weigh in today so I'll do it tomorrow.

It's great to see everyone's progress while I've been away!

I'm not setting a goal weight because I haven't WI yet for this month and I'll be happy just to stay relatively on plan this month.

Week One
1: No WI

Tabbycat here.
The whole month of May I did no exercise, and I ate terrible foods. (End of the school year teacher story!)
I stepped on the scale and I am up to 135. I feel best at about 125.
My weight loss goal for June is 5 pounds.
My plan is either Sonoma or Bone Broth Diet. I've done both in the past and found them very do-able.
June 1 start weight: 135
June 30 goal weight: 130

June 30: Made it! Barely! Exactly 130 (the scale has been on 130 for about three days now)

sunday
instant net effect from Saturdays big calories in and big calories out is zilch. I'll take that.
Winter just started here, so we're going to do a big roast dinner tonight. I'll just skip the potatoes/Yorkshire puds and go easy on the meat and gravy, but get in plenty of veggies. Yum.

Hey guys! Another one crawling out from the woodwork. April and May have been super chaotic for me so after some halfhearted attempts to restart I always found myself making other areas of my life a priority. However my dream of being a healthy weight has never changed and I want to start making improvements. I thought about calorie counting, but then I get lazy. I'm thinking about intermittent fasting, but worry about how to make that work with my current job. Either way, I need to make exercise a priority!

I did 35 active minutes yesterday, probably the most for two months, and I resisted chocolate. Having chicken and veggies later.

Hey guys...life and school got the better of me and I fell out of my routine harder than I ever have on a mere rebound. Just in the past three months since I've been gone I have packed on 40 lbs. FORTY. Yes, some of that is bloat, but most of it isn't. Anyway, I hit my big "reality check moment" when I stepped on the scale out of morbid curiosity last week and it told me I was back over 200 lbs. That's not a bad thing in general, but it was quite a shocker to me considering that I was just in the 160s in March. Putting on that much weight that fast is not healthy, and I can feel the strain it has had on my body. So, I started my efforts of getting back on track last week and it has been hit or miss, but I'm getting a little better with each day. I told myself part of those efforts would be to come back here yesterday since it was the first, but today will have to count. I had a member here check in on me a couple of days ago, right before coming back, so I'm taking that as a sign that coming back today was meant to be! Here's to getting back on track yet again...aiming for 10 lbs this month since I have bloated up so much.
