Smile May Weight Loss Challenge

As the world works together to control the pandemic, we can work together to control some aspect of our healthy routines. Set a goal that works for you at this moment in time. It can be a traditional weight loss goal for the month, or a goal to maintain, or a goal to eat vegetables every day.

Join the May 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.

This thread is for weight loss goals. For your exercise goals, check out our sister thread: May Exercise Challenge

I set a maintenance goal last month. And, ended up losing more than I would have set as a goal!

Let's see if I can pull that trick on my brain twice in a row:

May goal: Maintain below 89kgs

Hi everyone, I've been waiting to see this thread since coming back to the site a handful of days ago. My goal is 289.9 (I want to get out the 290's and into the 280s! lol), my lowest weight was 294.2 a handful of days ago and my current weight is 296.1, so 6.2 lbs. down from today's weight over the next month.

Having a rough time during my period, been feeling super drained. The weather has been up and down too, which always causes my body to react weird. It feels like I'm perpetually getting a cold!

A small loss today, proud of myself for not eating snacks late last night with my boyfriend was having his usual black hole moment! We call it that when he gets super hungry at night and eats all the snacks Starting to feel more like myself physically now that my period is ending and my estrogen levels are balancing, which is apparently what causes fatigue during a heavy period. The more you know!

My first time joining this challenge, because I need accountability! I would like to lose 1 pound a week, for an attainable goal of 4 lb loss for this month. Starting weight - 156.0

I am currently at minus 30 pounds and 184.5 pounds. I fluctuated here all of April. My goal is to get below 180 in May! I'm snacking a lot this weekend though on ginger candy of all things... I wonder if I am subconsciously sabotaging myself. Anyone else ever wonder that?

A slight gain this week, but given that I was on my period I don't mind seeing this. I went on a walk yesterday and today I'm gonna hopefully squeeze in a workout.

VickieLou - Good to see you back!

VermontMom - Welcome!

BabaSylli - Yes, I wonder that too sometimes! I give myself excuses to allow myself to treat myself. I'm learning not to, but it's a hard habit to break. We can do it though!

A small loss this morning, I worked out yesterday so I'm proud! Today is walk day. I also had a huge urge to snack late into the night but I refrained, so I'm super happy about that.
