Default July Weight Loss Challenge

Seems I can't go a day without a thread to post in, so since I don't see one yet for July, here it is. Sorry for stepping on your toes gardenerjoy.

Happy Summer everyone. Welcome to the second half of 2019.

Join the July Weight Loss Challenge to set your goal, track it, and meet it -- with the help of a supportive and encouraging group. All the goals will be compiled into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

I had a very slow month for June. Looking back at this year, I'm in a cycle of good month - not so good month - terrible month - good month. That being the case, I'm going to hope for that to continue and have a good July. I have a wedding reception to go to August 3rd, and I would really like to be close to 90 pounds down then, which will require a 6 pound loss this month. That's about what I lost in January and in April, so I know I can do it again.

SW: 183.4
July GW: 177.4

Upcoming minigoals:
182.0 - 13 stone *Met 7/14/19

Thanks, Lacerta! I just realized that I forgot to do this -- I'm so glad that you did!

Thanks for starting the next thread on gardenerjoy's behalf, Lacerta! I'm going to stick with my 10 lb goal for this month, even though there will be a couple birthdays and a visit from family during this month...it will be rough, but keeping it consistent anyway. Good luck this month, everyone!


(Starting out with a NWI, because it's a Monday. I usually don't weigh-in on Mondays and only sometimes on Wednesdays. My class will be over at the end of this month, so the weigh-ins will go back to normal for awhile after that.)

Thanks for the new thread! Well, June is best forgotten as I've regained a ridiculous amount in a short time. TOM is looming so that might have made a difference but at the moment it's dire. Onwards and downwards! I don't want to set a high target so I'll say 4 pounds.

Newlyn: I think you're doing awesome. Ok, so June wasn't good, but you didn't give up and you're still here, which still puts you ahead of almost everyone else. My June was terrible, too, so let's both agree to have a better July.

Ophelia: You're doing amazing so far. Way to get back on the horse. You have so much going on, so I'm impressed.

gardenerjoy: No problem, you are awesome to keep these going.

Total Loss for Week One:

Today's weigh in is a bit of a surprise. Honestly, I expected higher. I was good on my eating yesterday, but I was SOOOO thirsty. I just kept chugging water all evening (and I usually drink plenty of water anyway). I think I drank over a liter in the hour before bed (which weighs over 2 pounds). So I figured I'd either be up all night in the bathroom, or be way up on the scale this morning. Somehow, neither happened. So I don't know where that 2 pounds of water all went. I know you lose some by breathing, but not 2 pounds worth overnight. Weird

In other news, I decided to try on all my goal jeans again yesterday, as the 12s are getting sort of big on me (never thought I'd be able to say that). My 10 full length jeans fit great, and if it was cold outside, I'd be wearing them. The problem is that my 10 capris seem to be mislabeled. They fit exactly the same as my 8 regular jeans. Both can be fastened, but are too tight to wear yet. So that's annoying and I'll just stick with the 12s for a bit longer. But yesterday, for the first time, I was able to fasten my size 6s. And I did it without laying down on the bed or anything. They were FAR too tight to wear, obviously, but I got them on. So that was exciting. Still can't fit into my goal dress (which is a 12, but from 20 years ago's sizing), the buttons on my chest are still about an inch apart. I think I was 5-10 pounds lighter when I wore it before, so that makes sense.

Newlyn: Onwards and downwards, indeed!! I hope we're all able to hit our goals this month!


Lacerta: Congrats on getting down into new sizes! It's frustrating that sizes aren't universal across the board, but getting into your regular 10 jeans is still exciting even if they're too warm to wear at the moment! (I had just gotten to the "can button and zip them up but they're still way too tight to actually wear" point with some size 10s before going through my big regain back up to my 16s, but I'm back down into my 14s now and hoping to get back into my 12s some time this month.) Size 6 is my ultimate goal size, so that's super exciting that you were able to get those zipped!! I'm sure you'll be wearing those sizes comfortably before you know it.


-----------------------


A little bump back up today, but I ate a bigger meal much later in the evening than I usually do, so it's no surprise. It doesn't help that it was pretty salty, either...lol. I should have a normal day today, so hopefully it will move back down tomorrow. However, tomorrow is my youngest's 5th birthday, and he definitely wants cake and to go out to dinner so I might see it go back up by Thursday. Going to try to go a little bit lighter today just so I can average out some of the extras I may have tomorrow.

Back to my low again. I don't seem to be able to break through this number.

Just a quick check-in today...there was a bump up, as expected, but things will be going back to normal today so hoping to reverse things back in the right direction before week's end. Hope everyone who is in or from the United States has a Happy 4th today!

Just realized yesterday's weight had a typo. So I fixed that.
Today is my first new low in about a month. So yay for that. I'm hoping to see a 182 number by Monday.
Hope everyone survived the fireworks. I was up WAY later than usual (about 3 hours longer), but didn't eat anything I didn't intend to, so that was a win.

Woohoo, my first substantial loss in a month. To be fair, I weighed in a little late today, as I slept in to make up for lost sleep Thursday night. But it was only a little late, so I think I would have at least been in the 182s regardless. My average weight for this week is down a pound as well, for the first time in a month. So today's weight feels good. It also lets me change my avatar, since I am FINALLY officially 85 pounds down now. We'll see how much of that drop I can hang onto tomorrow. Monday-Wednesday this week is my stressful work time, so I'll likely go up for that time, but then I'd love to end next week in the 181s. Keep the ball rolling.
