    •Nov 12~ 177.4 - 😐 Another week of wild fluctuations, as expected. One more week to get back to my November 5th weight.



    Nov 19 (last update) - 177 😊 Not where I thought I'd be at the end of 12 weeks, but I lost 6.4 lbs, which is great! I had not taken my measurements for 2 months and I did lose another few inches all over. Even my older smaller clothes are too big.😆 Now I need a new 12 week challenge to carry me into the new year!

    I didn't get to my goal and I HAD hoped to get into the 160's but its ok.....I am far from finished. I lose it slow and steady and I will keep it off. The holidays will make it harder but time is on my side. I hope everyone reaches their ultimate goal one day! Thank you for this challenge!!
