    Sorry everyone. Todays weight update should be tomorrow Nov. 27. My youngest brothers birthday is today, maybe it was a subliminal reminder, because I just realized the mistake this very minute!

    Sleep Challenge:


    Friday Night 11/23/18...... 3 hours 27 minutes.
    Saturday night 11/24/18..... 4 hours 58 minutes.
    Sunday Night 11/25/18..... 4 hours 27 minutes.


    Note to Everyone: These are typical hours for me. After a few days of this I will usually "catch up" by sleeping a solid 5.5 to 6 hours for one night, then rinse and repeat. I know that more sleep would be beneficial, but I just do not seem to require it after a lifetime of long working hours and maintaining my home and family too. Most days I am refreshed and full of energy after 3 to 4 hours of sleep.

    @deepwoodslady, I completely understand functioning on minimal sleep and being full of energy. I did it for years myself, 4 or 5 hrs of sleep. Sometimes go to bed at 2 am, wake up 5am. Always woke up at 5. It has only changed this year that I wake up at 6, sometimes 7am.

    So, just texted my brother to wish him happy birthday and he was having his own subliminal reminders. He said all the bills of lading he filled out this morning, he kept writing his actual birthdate. Finally dawned on him it's his birthday.

    11/20 - I got 6 hrs and 45 mins sleep last night, woot hoot, that’s about normal for me. I’ll call that a win for me, sometimes I’ll only get around barely over 5, :(
    11/21 - I got 7 hrs and 58 mins, I got to bed early and was able to sleep past 6 am, 👍🏼👍🏼
    11/22 - I got 8 hrs and 3 mins, woot hoot! Happy Turkey Day, :) <3 :)
    11/23 - 8 hrs and 35 mins, I’m back in my own bed, :)
    11/24 - 8 hrs and 41 mins, hopefully this will help me stay focus to lose my Thanksgiving weight. 😈😢😂
    11/25 - 9 hrs and 15 mins, we’ll see if I can keep this up. My husband had a 4 day weekend, he’s back at work tomorrow.
    11/26 - 5 hrs and 31 mins, last night was a tough night staying 😴

    I'm in! This long challenge is exactly what I need. I like to weigh in on Saturday mornings (because Saturdays are my cheat days!). I'll weigh in on one Friday morning in December because I'm getting married that day -- so there will definitely be enough champagne and cake for me to avoid the scale the next morning. ;)

    SW: 188.2 (Nov 26, 2018)
    GW: 150 (Not by end of challenge, but hopefully soon thereafter!)

    P.S. Looking for motivational friends, so feel free to add me!

    @tiabirdie56 LOL on your brother
    @deepwoodslady, I completely understand functioning on minimal sleep and being full of energy. I did it for years myself, 4 or 5 hrs of sleep. Sometimes go to bed at 2 am, wake up 5am. Always woke up at 5. It has only changed this year that I wake up at 6, sometimes 7am.

    Lol on his realization. I'd forget my *kitten* if it wasn't attached. But I do a lot of forgetting since the Chemo. Brain Fog. They say Fish Oil helps with brain function and memory so I take it daily (when I remember to LOL). I am now going to watch the youtube video on stopping the bread cravings. I've had a good day, but I always appreciate another tool in my toolbox! Thanks for sharing. Have a good night!

    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!

    Slept my usual 7 hours for the first time since my arm fracture & 3-week high dose prednisone course of treatment.

    I’m overjoyed. Hooray!

    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.

    Hope you guys don't mind if I jump in late! My weigh in day is already Tuesday so it works out perfect.
    I didn't have access to a scale last week (home for the holiday!), but my weight the week prior was 184.

    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 178
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 155

    11/27~ 178 (Somehow I dropped 6lbs in two weeks. No idea how that happened!)

    Hoping to hit 168 by the New Year! Might be a struggle. I always eat horribly when visiting home, and I'll be spending a bit of time there for the holidays.
