Just checking in even though I've been MIA for a bit.
I see many new people in here, that's great
Also don't see some that used to be, hope they're doing OK
And a few die hards still here, good to see!
Looks like lots of progress happening, a great moral booster for everyone, encouraging for all
May wasn't a great month for me, lots of 'stuff' going on and not tracking / exercising like I should be - only 1.5 down BUT still down so I'm not bummed about it. I'm still working on it and trying to get healthy but not ready to do the daily tracking yet, soon I hope when things calm down. Hope to do much better in the losing department this month too! I can feel the 18# coming & it's exciting
I do come & read every week to be encouraged so I wish you all a great week and keep on being "losers"

Hey Jezzie welcome back. Good to see more newcomers here. Don't get too discouraged Epixi, the weight starts coming off very irregularly after the first bunch. You know you are doing things right just keep at it. I have been logging and posting regularly since Dec and I saw so many people get discouraged when their weight loss started to slow down. I'll be up then down then up and then suddenly 2 more pounds down.
Ian that's a pretty shocking figure, I guess I'd be figuring out why this happened. I've had a couple of binges through this process and I had to figure out why (I found that I CANNOT resist cheezies in the house). I have also learned that the old advice of "have a treat so you don't feel deprived" does not work for me. It abstinence all the way baby.

Monday weigh in, I lost 4 pounds this week, 186 - 182 Yipee
The food and water are going well. I didn't get my 10k last week but I will try for it this week. Week one went better than I expected.
My son ran his second duathlon yesterday and won a third place medal.
That's my boy.
Let's all have a fantastic week.
Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 1200-1550 calories: 1407, 1363, 1381, 1397, 1477, 1509, 1499
Maintain a 7-day rolling average between 800-1300mg sodium: 1023, 932, 989, 1086, 1184, 1200, 1264
Maintain a 7-day rolling average of at least 16g fiber: 19, 19, 18, 17, 16, 18, 18
Some sort of physical activity 4x during the week: M=Tai Chi/Yoga, T=Taiko Class, W=Navrai, Th=Yoga Class, F=rest, Sa=Tai Chi, Su=rest... (5/4)
Study every day: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
Tomorrow is Monday, my official, recordable weigh-in day. Since I weigh every day, I know what to expect. No surprises. At best, I'll remain at 16.5, and that's only if I'm lucky enough to catch a low bounce. In other words, since the end of April, I will have lost a net 1.5 pounds . Given that I've been "good", that doesn't feel particularly "lucky" to me.
I'm not looking forward to it.
Edit: It ended up being another solid blue week, but, as expected, the scale does not reflect my efforts. I'm quite discouraged.
Hehe that's ok, I get it. Running is not my thing -- between the knees (they are perfectly happy dancing but not running, for some odd reason), the whole concept of getting sweaty (ick) and having to deal with *ahem* the girls (they will. not. be. tamed), running is out of the question for me .
And do you let on that you know?
Welcome aboard, Laura! Interesting thing about the Get-Healthy bus -- no matter how many times you jump off, there's always room when you want to jump back on!
