    Sounds like folks are setting good goals and making solid progress! I am down one more pound this week, to 175.

    Weekends continue to be my nemesis. I am really good at tracking food throughout the week, which allows me to hit my calories while still having dessert, alcohol, etc. On the weekend though, when I do takeout or have something with friends, I will eat a big meal or have a few drinks and decide it's too tough to track and kind of give up. This kills much of my deficit for the week.

    This weekend I am trying to eat really light and track throughout the day prior to socializing, and pay more attention to when I feel full/gross when I am out.

    I was away for a week and gained weight and then when I got back I spent that week losing the weight I gained.

    So two weeks later I am down to 169.2 for a whopping weight loss over two weeks of 0.2 lbs.

    I'm up. Way up. 184.5 lbs. I had a bad week of ZERO exercise and LOADS of calorie intake. The next two weeks are not looking much better either. I am worried.

    Don’t sweat it - “relapse” is a normal part of progress. Just try to make the best choices you can every day and don’t let the disappointment of a setback get to you too much.

    You can control calorie intake so control it as much as possible.

    Indeed! Progress is rarely linear. Mine certainly hasn't been. Last week I hit 173.5, which put my loss at 20lbs overall. This has been a mixed week food-wise for me so I'm sure I would be up if I could bring myself to hop on the scale. In academia, the end-of-semester crunch always gets me, though I haven't gone quite as much off the rails as I often do. And PR'ed squat this week, so there's that too!

    The downside of hitting this milestone is that seeing where I'm at now leaves me pretty convinced I would like to end up in the low 160s. That seems reasonable at 5'9".
