Summer 5% Challenge Weigh-In # 8 (8/18/18)

Sunday, August 19, 2018

Why does it suck when we fall off? Was hoping to post these updates weekly and just noticed it's been 3 weeks since the last. I'm back and surprisingly close to goal for this summer challenge, and it's not because I've been following the plan religiously or working out 4 hours a day 5 days a week. I've simply been more mindful of how much I'm eating. I'm grateful to the countless people that suggested keeping a food journal, it works. This is the last week of the Summer 5% Challenge and I'm ready to meet this goal. emoticon

Week 4 07/28/18: 254.4
Week 5 08/04/18: 256.8
Week 6 08/11/18: 254.2
Week 7 08/18/18: 253.8 emoticon .6 lbs from week 4.

I wish success in health, and other things, was more A to B but more often than not it seems to be more of an A to Z affair.

    You make me laugh😉😉But I know what you mean. Summer is like that I guess. Good for you for getting back on track! Like you I believe the weight difference in one month is very important instead of the weight difference in one day, weighing every day. Glad you're being mindful and have self-awareness. GOOD JOB 🤗🤗🤗🤗

    emoticon I am so glad to see you making your goal. I do not feel committed to my food log or plan. I simply want to eat whatever I want. I need your resolve.
