    My name is Tish
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 177.2
    Challenge Goal Weight ~167 - 1/2 pound per week
    November 20, 2018 ~ 177.2 - 42 lbs left to reach my ultimate goal. It was 40 lbs on Nov. 9th when 175 appeared, then was rudely replaced by 177. Lol. This number loves me.
    11/27 ~ 178.8 - Been doing everything I should not the last 5 days; eating late in the day (8pm) eating bread, no electrolytes. One last croissant beckoning me today😊 and hopefully
    it's over.
    11/30 - 178.2 - Lol. Looks like I lost weight. Not. I prefer Wednesday's weight, 174.8😅 but obviously not that much since I ate pretzels last night. Keto carb havoc!
    December 4 - 😒 178.8 - That's rough , but better than yesterday. I think I should post daily weights for December.
    12/11 - 176.6 - Forgot it was weigh in day. By no means was this a linear loss. I was December 4 weight again yesterday!
    12/14 - 175.4 - Gotta post my own good report. I almost don't believe it. I was this weight once or twice during my traverse up and down the 170's since September! Praying it continues downward. I'm more than ready to be OUT of this decade! Doing EVERY THING RIGHT.
    12/18 - 176.2 - My mac and cheese😁
    12/25 - 174.8 - Eating carbs, up and down a smaller range of weights this past week.
    12/31 - 175.8
    January 1, 2019 - 178 😦
    1/3 - 175.8 - Knee is behaving somewhat better and I exercised for the first time in a week yesterday. Found a few different rehab exercises online for knee and shoulders. I will include them in my strength and stretch workouts.
    1/4 - 177.6 - Weight is up from late day start for everything, exercise, eating, bedtime. Not feeling my best yesterday or today for that matter. Got a nice workout in yesterday, not up to my standards, lol, but my standards are going to have to be altered until I can gain my muscle strength back.
    1/8 - 174.4
    1/15 - 173.2
    1/22 - 174.2
    1/29 - 176

    2/1 - 172.8
    2/3 - 174.8
    2/4 176.4
    *I'm going to do my best to get below 170 by the end of this challenge. The cold weather is making me want to eat more though.😣 At 169lbs, I'll be 34 lbs from my ultimate goal. At 158lbs, I will be at the threshold of a normal BMI.

    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!
    January 4, 2019 ~ 153.3 Holidays are over and my time off from work is done. So at least I maintained within a couple of pounds, but it is now time to get in the 140's. I have 5 weeks till vacation and that same weekend my second oldest turns 18. So my goal is 145!
    1/11 ~ 150.9 Been here for 3 days. Was hoping it would finally drop lower for today's weigh-in, but maybe next week I can post a better one.
    1/18 ~ 148.9 and I am officially in the 140's. Almost 4 pounds away from my first goal of 145. I have just over 3 weeks to get there before vacation. It is completely doable, but I usually lose a pound or less a week, so we will see. Happy where I am today and that is a win in my books.
    1/25 ~ 149.4 started our Vaca last night. Had a couple of drinks and started packing. We will see how The Weekend goes. It’s a short Vaca so shouldn’t do to much damage.
    February 1 ~ 147.6 Super stoked about this. Even with my vacation last week. 1 more week before Vegas, don't think I am going to see 145, but I will hopefully be close!
    2/8 ~ 149.8 and I'm back up a bit. Had Chinese food last night. I am sure it's the sodium plus I just haven't been trying that hard lately. I am leaving tomorrow on vacation for a week, so I will get back into it after I get home!
    2/15 Vacation ~ So want to be well established in the 140's decade and be below 145!
    2/22 ~ 151.2 I had 14 days of not counting calories and I am paying for it now. Lol, had an amazing time though and have no regrets. Hopefully by the end of March I reach my goal of 145!

    I painted my nails again last night. Something with subtle color & sparkle. It made me feel pretty & motivated me to want those new sizes in clothing that are whispering my name! I really am tired of losing the same 5 pounds over & over. I just pray I can stay strong. I would love to see more improvement in those times when I'm away from home & have to make choices in foods that are not usually part of my plan. When I can do that, I'll know I'm on my way to permanent weight loss. Until then, I'll take advantage of my safety zone at home, lose all the weight I need to & keep working on my better & healthier self. Best new product I recently found is Fairlife milk. I bought the 2% to help curb the calories even more. What I like most is that it has great protein count as compared to plain milk or almond milk. The 2% has 120 Calories, 6 grams of carbs & 13 grams of protein per serving (8 oz). Low (6 grams) of sugar which is 50% less than regular milk. Contains no artificial growth hormones. It is also lactose free. Very humane treatment of cows & easily traceable milk right back to the farms. It comes in skim, 1%, 2%, chocolate & whole milk The taste is phenomenal. Nice 52 oz container is pricier than regular milk but I'm the only one using it in the family within my diet plan so it is affordable. Yummy, tasty, trustworthy. It's nice to help pump up my protein & is great when I choose to eat some peanut butter. Just thought I would share.

    My name is Tish
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 177.2
    Challenge Goal Weight ~167 - 1/2 pound per week
    November 20, 2018 ~ 177.2 - 42 lbs left to reach my ultimate goal. It was 40 lbs on Nov. 9th when 175 appeared, then was rudely replaced by 177. Lol. This number loves me.
    11/27 ~ 178.8 - Been doing everything I should not the last 5 days; eating late in the day (8pm) eating bread, no electrolytes. One last croissant beckoning me today😊 and hopefully
    it's over.
    11/30 - 178.2 - Lol. Looks like I lost weight. Not. I prefer Wednesday's weight, 174.8😅 but obviously not that much since I ate pretzels last night. Keto carb havoc!
    December 4 - 😒 178.8 - That's rough , but better than yesterday. I think I should post daily weights for December.
    12/11 - 176.6 - Forgot it was weigh in day. By no means was this a linear loss. I was December 4 weight again yesterday!
    12/14 - 175.4 - Gotta post my own good report. I almost don't believe it. I was this weight once or twice during my traverse up and down the 170's since September! Praying it continues downward. I'm more than ready to be OUT of this decade! Doing EVERY THING RIGHT.
    12/18 - 176.2 - My mac and cheese😁
    12/25 - 174.8 - Eating carbs, up and down a smaller range of weights this past week.
    12/31 - 175.8
    January 1, 2019 - 178 😦
    1/3 - 175.8 - Knee is behaving somewhat better and I exercised for the first time in a week yesterday. Found a few different rehab exercises online for knee and shoulders. I will include them in my strength and stretch workouts.
    1/4 - 177.6 - Weight is up from late day start for everything, exercise, eating, bedtime. Not feeling my best yesterday or today for that matter. Got a nice workout in yesterday, not up to my standards, lol, but my standards are going to have to be altered until I can gain my muscle strength back.
    1/8 - 174.4
    1/15 - 173.2
    1/22 - 174.2
    1/29 - 176

    2/1 - 172.8
    2/3 - 174.8
    2/4 176.4
    *I'm going to do my best to get below 170 by the end of this challenge. The cold weather is making me want to eat more though.😣 At 169lbs, I'll be 34 lbs from my ultimate goal. At 158lbs, I will be at the threshold of a normal BMI.

    February 5 - 176
    2/12 - 176
    2/13 - 174.6
    2/14 - 174.2
    2/15 - 173.8

    2/19 - 175 - Higher carb count yesterday. I ate 2ozs of cashews, which is a lot. I think maybe, I can't eat cashews. I don't digest them well. Out all day and had a late dinner. My one year marker for keto was today and my gift was...

    November 20, 2018 ~ 178.6
    11/27 – 180.4 And a Happy Thanksgiving it was. But not such a healthy one. I celebrated all week and held or attended more than one dinner. Now, it’s back to the business of a newer and better version of me!

    December 4 178.6 Exactly back to where I started which is a good thing. Now, to get this ball rolling!
    12/11 180.4 Disappointed in my weight. Weighed very early due to long trip to University Hospital I am going to today. I will be gone 2 days. More restaurants and long car drives. I’m going to do my very best.
    12/18 180.4 No change which I suppose is good during this month of festivities, out of town trips and food temptations. Lets remember to enjoy and appreciate the season, not just work, work, work. I am going to try to keep eating clean (at least while I am at home), get in my cardio and keep my Hallmark channel going 24/7.
    12/25 183.2
    January 1, 2019 185.5 Ground Zero.
    01/08 183.3 Going back down about the same way I went up during December. Redemption. Thank you Lord.
    01/15 186.2 Lots of personal problems and business problems this week has derailed me. Trying hard to get on track. Food plan is hard to stick to during all this, but I have been trying to keep up the Cardio and the walking and limit my snacking. Carbs & calories over the top too many times this week.
    01/22 187.1 Was trying to do better but stress eating got me. Emergencies (tree on roof), loss of business, insurance inspections throughout ugg. Incorporated aerobic dancing into my routine and it helped, but a quick gain on the end was inevitable. Next week should be better.
    01/29 184.8 Yay…. I’m in the red & losing again. I’ve been dancing my butt off when able & it’s really paying off. It also helps me get my steps in. I’m in the groove right now & hope I can stay there. I’m always strong until I’m hungry, so I’ve got to stay prepared! I’m still way higher than my starting weight during this challenge (6.2 lbs up still). I’ve got a long way to go just to break even, but I’m trying!
    February 5 186.7 Up, Up and Away it went again. However, the past couple of days have been very on point so it’s coming back down slowly. Trying hard to beat those pesky carb monsters! It’s going to get better, and I hope this month is the re-start of all great things!
    02/12 …..185.4….. Woo Hoo. So Happy to be Typing in Red Again!!! This week will be tough. I will have two Food Festivities on Valentine’s Day that will be just way too tempting. I hope to offset it before the Feb 19th weigh-in. On the 20th & 21st I will be away from home in travels (restaurants & sitting ugg) unless weather forces cancellations. So next two weeks hold more temptation than I would like. I will just have to do my best & roll with the punches
    02/19 …..188.2….. [/color=limegreenOops. Ballooned up again this week after Valentine’s Day but working it back down already. Any carb filled day can find me 3-7 pounds heavier the next day (which I know is mainly water) & that is disappointing. Lowering calories when possible & increasing exercise as my work schedule allows to get back in the groove.
    02/26…..188.0….. I’ve done great these past few days. Not much showing on the scale yet, but I’m feeling really good about how my days are going. Think Spring!
