    @tiabirdie56, these are the challenges I’m going to revisit, thanks brilliant idea for this week. Plus my main focus is going to try NOT to snack at night. If I need to have an apple or fruit, it’s healthier than the cookies my husband is eating NOW, lol.

    Jumping in here to keep committed until the next season!

    Stats: 29yo/F/5'5"
    OSW: 4/19: 212.6
    CSW 12/28: 174.6
    CGW #1: 1/7/19: 170* I made this goal months ago and although it appears I might be a bit late to achieve it, I want to keep the goal as planned for accountability
    CGW #2: 3/22/19: 160
    UGW: 4/19/19: 150* same as above note

    12/28 - 174.6 - holiday gain is coming down a bit

    My name is Jenn I have 5 kids (1st one just left for college this year and another one that will be leaving next year). I am 39 and married to an amazing man. I work full time and have very little time to work out. Hopefully once the younger kids 10 and 13 get a little older, I will have more time. Right now I focus on eating right and maybe two to three times a week getting 45 minutes or so of cardio.

    Beginning Weight ~ 175-178
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 155.3
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 135
    My weigh in days will be Friday (these are usually my lowest weights, lol)


    November 20, 2018 ~ 155.3
    11/23 ~ 157.8 day after Thanksgiving uugggh
    11/30 ~ 153.8 that looks better
    December 7 ~ 152.3 I thought this week I would have been lower. Did really well. Not a drop of alcohol, clean eating, lots of water, and everything. I just don't think my body can lose 2 pounds a week no matter what. I am getting closer to my goal weight, so maybe that's why to. I am proud that I stuck to my plan this week and am down 1.5 pounds, so I'll take it!
    12/14 ~ 151.1 Going in the right direction for sure. Hopefully we can keep this pattern going!
    12/21 152.8 And I am back up again,lol. I'm holding on for dear life for December. I am still down 1 pound this month and that maybe all I get.
    12/28 ~ 152.3 Going back down. Had a lot to lose after Christmas though. One more holiday weekend and we are back on track. Happy New Year everyone!

    Thank goodness Tish mentioned being able to break the cardio up into segments. Even with all my shopping, running and working I have been able to fit in 3 10 minute segments per day of aerobic dancing. All it takes is 2 to 3 songs and it's fun!

    @GrandmaJackie, Oh, have fun! I would LOVE to do a bootcamp workout! Pretty much its a ramped up circuit workout. I really am annoyed about my knee. It keeps me from doing the type of exercises I like and want to do.

    178 showed up in the scale this morning. Thats what comes from eating at midnight! It should settle down in a couple of days. I'll be helping it along.
