    Not a good week for me. I've been sick, and I think my new medication is messing with my weight. Hoping things will improve.

    Sorry you're not feeling well. I hope you feel better soon!

    Start weight: 169.4
    Goal: 152 (-17lbs)
    8.22: 168.0 (-1.4)
    8.29: 167.0 ( -1)
    9.5: 165.8 (-1.2)
    9.12: 164.6 (-1.2)
    9.19: 161.8 (-2.8)
    9.26: 160.6 (-1.2)
    10.3: 159.4 (-1.2)
    10.12: 160.4 (+1)

    10.17: 157.2 (-2.7 lbs)

    I'm very very suspicious of that drop. I was very conscious about not overcompensating after my difficult week because I don't want to yo-yo. A 2.7 lb loss definitely does not reflect how I've been eating and exercising.

    Time for me to get this train wreck back on track :( I've been derailed for a couple weeks & it's showing on the scale.

    Current on 10/17 159
    End Goal 12/20 145 -- if I get back on track I think I can. No ~~ I KNOW I can

    Wow. I thought I had back-pedaled this week, but I guess I just held steady. That makes me feel a little better. I hoped I would be a few pounds less at this point, but then I also expected to be more responsible with my eating choices. I am snacking because it is there. I am also busting my carb limits -- when I am aiming for LCHF -- and this just makes me want to eat more carbs. We have a dinner party this week and a lot of other stressors. I'm in charge of the menu, but chose to make lasagna because it is a simple meal for a lot of people and it tastes good. After Friday, I am going to refocus on diet.

    This challenge group is getting less active--- several people have quit. KUDOS to the remaining few. We still have weeks to go and still can meet our goal. As a mini-challenge this week, I am going to go to bed by 10 and be trying to sleep by 10:30. I want to get into a good sleep habit so I can start waking up early to exercise.

    Do you have a mini- challenge for this week?

    Midway is when it starts getting hard and easy to throw in the towel. I'm super grateful for the ones that have stayed because you guys are the biggest reason I pulled myself out of that motivation pit last week.

    My arch nemesis just announced her fabulous new diet and weight loss plans. So my mini goal is to notget dragged into a weight loss competition with her ( mostly in my own head) so that I don't jeopardize my long term consistency for short term losses. o:)>:)

    Good luck to all this week!

    I started last week but lost track of this thread! I aim to weigh in on Wednesdays. It's a little ambitious to have a 27 lb drop in 9 weeks--that's 3 lbs/week. But at my size it seems possible, and either way, progress is a win in itself! If it matters to anyone, I plan to stick to a very low-carb, very high-fat, moderate protein eating style (LCHF/keto). Just started recently, and with the holidays coming, it'll be an interesting challenge!

    Starting weight (10/19): 272.3
    10% reduction: -27 lbs in 9 weeks (avg. 3 lbs/week)
    Goal by 12/25: 245

    10/19: 272.3 lbs

    Not much loss. Hoping I lost more but it's water weight. I've been a bit of a salt pig this week...
