    The August 28th Einstein T-Shirt photo is becoming an annual tradition!

    44 lbs gone between the first picture in 2016 and today. The T-shirt is actually a bit too big to be flattering anymore, but I was keeping to the theme! :) Wish I could find it in a smaller size...it was a limited edition thing...I digress...

    Wishing I was at goal, but I had a long plateau and things are just starting to move again in the last few weeks. I'll get there when I get there. 20 or so lbs to my first long-term goal and then I'll reevaluate.

    I feel so much better than I did when that first picture was taken. :) Onward!

    SOOooo Happy for you!!

    One idea; when you are at goal weight, get a really good photo of the Einstein image. Then take it to be “copied” onto a shirt that fits you like a glove :)

    Congrats again! Einstein would be proud!

    Great idea! I love the shirt...I just don't want it to fit anymore! I found one for sale on Etsy size L, but it is in Malaysia and it's nearly $100 USD with shipping! The one I have is XXL. Too rich for me...

    Didn't quite get the loss I'd hoped for as I leveled out a couple weeks due to not watching my calories close enough, but headed back the right direction again!

    @JennH517, You look great! It is amazing how photos show you what you may not see in the mirror. Fantastic work!

    Wondering if the Scale Gods will grant me 159.8 (my scale only logs even 1/10ths of a pound lol) by Sept 1st!! 5 days, 4/10 of a pound. We’ll see.

    This is the most I’ve lost in calendar month in the past year. Thank you for this challenge!

    Aug 29 159.8 ✅✅ Wow! Wow.

    My 5 days in Italy and I have put back everything I worked to lose in August. 😳Indulged in everything Italian.... to good to resist. Knew it would be bad but didn't realise 5 days could have such a big impact. Gelato, cocktails, wine, pasta, tiramisu! Not going to regret it however as I really needed a break since my mother died of cancer earlier in the year. It's been tough. September here we come.....! Look forward to the support and getting back on the treadmill ....

    Please don't feel guilty for enjoying in life's pleasures! Imagine if you were in Italy and refused to enjoy yourself just so that you could lose a couple of pounds :/ You'll get back on track in September!
