*Starshine*'s Journal, 09 April 2014

Down around 3 lbs this week and ecstatic to see things heading in the right direction again! The thrill of losing weight just never wears off, even after 109 lbs. Was very confused last week by gaining, when I thought I was still doing everything right. Managed well this week though, despite being really busy and, for various reasons, practically living out of a suitcase. Been pretty good at sticking to my ideal diet balance of 40% protein, 40% complex carbs, and 20% good fats, with the odd treat. Lots of exercise too, of course, and the growing realisation that strength-training and body-weight cardio are just as good as jogging/cross-training, and perhaps even better for long-term weight loss.
173.8 lb Lost so far: 95.2 lb.    Still to go: 0 lb.    Diet followed 100%.

We all have weeks where we do everything right and see a gain or no loss. Many times the loss on the scale is masked by something causing our water weight to shift upward (sodium, hormones, exercise, stress,etc.). Great job on the loss.

Great job and very inspirational. We are very similar in demographics and goals although you are well ahead of me. I hit 25 lbs off this week and it was exciting. My next goal is to get below 250 and lose one of the weights on the balance scale. Thanks for sharing your journey.
