We still have eight full days left.

I hope everybody is getting closer to her point of pride.
Personally, I had two setbacks (two weeks of self-justified atkins-leaning IP) but now I learned my lesson (bacon is not allowed!!). Much humbled, I am fully OP. I may not make 163 but I can be very close. I wish everybody the well-deserved success.

On a different note, I really appreciate your kind condolences. They remind me how deeply sad my mother-in-law must feel and that makes me call her more often. Thank you.

I haven't checked in in a couple weeks. A lot of us have had successes with some challenges along the way. I had WI #3 yesterday, and after a Sunday cheat, I lost 2.5 pounds which puts me at 11 pounds for the month and it's not over yet!! I set my goal for 10 pounds since I know I'm a slow loser. I'm very excited for this loss and I'm 5 pounds away from the 140's. I haven't been that since '97!! I hope everyone is having a fantastic OP weekend!!

I am reporting my progress and result of July Challenge.
On July 1, I was 175.4.
Today, August 1, I am 165.4.
My original goal was 163.

Initially, I thought 13 pounds would be piece of cake considering my height (5.2 1/2) and weight (175). Losing three pounds a week seemed definitely doable.

Yet, for three weeks, I lost only three pounds all put together. There was a funeral and a summer vacation and I rationalized that if I am careful with carbs per se, a couple of strips of bacon a day would not kick me off ketosis. Sorely wrong was I.

In sum, today I am 165.4 (BMI 30.4), a pound lighter than my 5'8'' hubby--a bittersweet NSV.
All said and done, here I do declare: I am ready to start my August Challenge: 153!

I made my July Challenge goal!!! My goal was to be under 165 by August 1st, since 165 is the least I can ever remember weighing since I started caring what the scale said (so like 15). As of this morning's weigh in, I am 163.6!!! YAY! I love IP.

I didn't meet my goal, but I am still happy! I lost 10.4 lbs. My goal was 12 lbs, but I will definitely take what I lost!

I didn't make it either. I did make my goal to lose 15 the first month though so I'm happy about that. As for July, I lost 12.6 and was hoping for 15. Not too far off!
