    I haven't been following lately as I've had quite a whirlwind last month; it has however resulted in me reaching my elusive goal weight although not in the way of healthy eating and exercise. I have been through a separation and also been physically sick and full of flu like symptoms, lost my sense of taste and smell for a week because of it and eating has unfortunately been pretty low on the agenda. Definitely not the way to do it but life happens that way sometimes.
    I was in the high 60's just a few months ago and am now closer to 60kg. I'm trying to focus on putting good things back into my life and body and it's hard, I'd become so used to not eating in the past couple of weeks that I was automatically skipping meals without thinking so this morning made myself eat a bowl of nutrient oats. Albeit I only managed to down half a bowl (I lose my appetite big time with depression and stress) I'm trying.

    I might set one up myself early next week, if no-one else has done it by then.

    I started the challenge well but for weeks hit a plateau than actually gained a few But I pulled my finger out, and lost that.

    I'm currently 68 kilos. So only a 2kg loss in the 8 weeks which I'm disappointed with after losing so much beforehand. Ahh well I only have a couple of kilos to lose to get to healthy weight range so I guess the loss slows down.

    I'm really up for another 8 week challenge.

    End of week 6 and 7 stats were:
    21/8/15 - 91.8 (start weight)
    28/8/15 - 89.3kg (2.5kg loss)
    4/9/15 - 88.3kg (1kg loss)

    2/10/15 - 85kg (500g loss)
    9/10/15 - 85kg (maintain)

    I'm pretty sure I maintained that week because I had a few dinners out for occasions, and whilst I chose to still eat allowed salads/vegetables, I did include a bit of wine, delicious, delicious wine.

    I weigh in again tomorrow morning, pretty confident I lost this week just based on how I'm looking/fitting in clothes, but I have no idea how much. I have slacked off a bit on my water intake this week as well, so back on the water drinking train!

    I think I've posted this (or similar again) before, but thought I'd post again for those who get disheartened by weight gains or small losses.

    Each point on the graph represents my weight each day for a month. My weight fluctuates every day. Some days I lose a little, sometimes I gain a little, somedays it stays the same. It's life - try as I do to control everything, everyday is different.

    What matters is the fact that there's an overall consistent trend of weight loss. Not the individual numbers.
    Very interesting.

    This is why I would recommend doing your measurements as you can lose cm without losing weight. But also, this is the reason why I wouldn't recommend people weigh in daily. Weekly at the same time is better. It can be so deflating to see the scales stagnate or go up. And if you weigh in every day, that is much more likely to happen and much more likely that people will relapse.

    To me, weight loss is a journey to being healthy. And that means eating well and exercising, not a number on the scales.

    I was weighing myself daily when I first starting losing and it was really unhealthy for me mentally. Sometimes I'll sneak in a mid week weigh in but usually I try hard to stick to weekly.

    Seeing it go up on certain days doesn't deflate me as I know that it's just part of daily fluctuations.

    Of course if your someone who's mental health wouldn't cope with that, then it's a terrible idea.

    But the same thing could happen with a weekly weight as well.

    You do what you want, and I'll do what I want.

    I simply posted it to show others that even though it can be easy to get caught up small losses or unchanged weights you need to look at the overall trend of things.
    Im not telling you what to do, but I don't think it's healthy to encourage other people weigh in every day. Especially in this thread where people are trying to lose weight.

    I doubt you would find any health expert, dietitian, personal trainer, etc. who would recommend their clients to weigh in daily.

    Most of these professionals would encourage doing your measurements as well, which shows progress even when the scales might now.

    Finally, if you weighed in weekly, you probably wouldn't have had the up spikes.
