I lost 5 pounds in July. Very happy, considering the amount of family/friends gatherings I attended. :)

That's awesome! I have been on a plateau this month. Losing and gaining the same 2 lbs.

Hey, well done Fenway Girl and everyone else. Hope your Dad's better FG.
I thought I'd done OK but went away for a week for my sister's birthday. This morning the scales showed me as up 7lb this morning (ie back to beginning of July weight.) I'm sure that's not actually right and a lot of that will be fluid retention so will check again in a couple of days, cos no way have I eaten enough to put on 7lb in a week - even if I didn't attempt to lose weight last week!

Congrats and thank you so much for raising the question. I had not totaled the loss for the month. If fact I usually don't. So I was surprised to see I lost 8 pounds in the month of July!! Not just that... I can do the plyometrics and planks sections of my workout videos where I was unable before. I hit the 25 pounds lost mark last week and then passed it right on up this week. Best of all, even though I still have at least 100 more to lose (in my opinion), my hubby can't stop saying "I'm proud of you, you look sooo beautiful" (and i swoon...ahhhh). August is my birthday month....let's do this!

Thanks for Listenin'

July was my slowest month yet. Went into a plateau. Lost 3 lbs for the month. Think the beginning of August is going to be good though. Weighing in tomorrow 8/2.

I'd be happy with losing even 1/4 of what you did :)

I actually gained more weight in July. I had my grandmother's funeral (and in the process of preparing, I didn't even have my own room to go to as I had to give it up to family), several days at an amusement park, a week-long family vacation, and then a family friend who was diagnosed with cancer earlier on this year found out it had completely spread throughout her body and she is on her deathbed and has been for a couple weeks now. I'm an introvert and have had very little alone time at all this month- and the one person I want to spend time with, I can't. So needless to say, my July was crap.

The good news is that things are looking up. I plan on having a terrific August because honestly, not much more can go wrong :P

Well, I hit my "50 pounds lost" goal on June 29, and throughout the month of July lost a rather underwhelming 2 additional pounds lol. I guess it will go down in my record books as "Plateau Month." May the scale move again in August!

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

Well I said July would be my month and it was I saw myself lose 10 lbs ( I honestly thought it would be more because on July 10th I had lost 10 already) and a total of 14 inches I guess that's what I'm most proud of those inches because I feel that they are gone!
I went in the pool quite a bit but then again I did have a lot of stress put on me towards the end of July with my dad having his 4th Respiratory failure and I'm sure I've gained quite a bit of muscle this month as well.
Don't get me wrong I'm happy with the numbers that I have for this month but I think it could of been a little better but I'm going to make August a great month for myself because again I'll still have the pool open.
So WATCH OUT AUGUST!!!!!! I'M EVEN MORE MOTIVATED THEN EVER!
