    Happy Friday, December Gutbusters! We'll begin posting December weigh-ins starting on Sunday. For those of you who are new to the group, here are some weigh-in FAQs:
    • When do I post my weigh-in?
      Post on your "scheduled weigh-in day". So, if you posted a weight in the New Member Registration thread on a Tuesday, then your scheduled weigh-in day will be each Tuesday of the month. You can also check the December spreadsheet to see what your scheduled weigh-in day is.
    • Why is Week 1 beginning on Sunday? Haven't we been already posted our starting weights?
      Think of it like a first birthday. You're born, then you have to live a whole year before you can celebrate being 1. In this challenge, you post a starting weight, then you have a whole week to work on weight loss before you post your Week 1 weigh-in.
    • How do I post my weigh-in?
      Your posts should look like this:
      Week: November Week 1
      PW: Previous Weight in lbs
      CW: Current Weight in lbs
    • What's my previous weight?
      If you're new, your Week 1 previous weight is whatever weight you posted in the New Member Registration thread, or check out the current spreadsheet to see what your posted info says. If you're returning, your Week 1 previous weight is whatever your weight was in the last week of the previous month.
    • I'm still confused. Who can help me?
      Just ask a question here and tag me, or PM me and I'll do my best to get back as soon as possible.

    Hi there TomaoteLady here, second month with this group :) I'm not much of a poster, but I like reading everybody else's <3 I feel like December may be a little trickier with all the baking and what not around, but I have a goal and I can see it on the horizon. Good luck to everybody have a fantastic month.

    Hey! I'm from VA. I'm a stay at home mom. This is my 1st challenge with this group. I miss going to the gym. I used to go a lot years ago but I'd go through periods of where I'd go nonstop for months then quit going. I miss going to Zumba class at the gym. So, when I have the extra $, thinking some dvds may fill my void. I've been at a high weight ever since I was a kid. I'm excited to give this an early start & keep it going into the new year. I don't have much social support at home, which is why I'm here.

    I'm doing aerobics of YouTube this month. Maybe we can swap favourites?

    I am very excited for December’s challenge! My goal is to reach 143 by December 31st. I am currently 148. My November history shows I can lose 2-3 pounds a week as I went from 158-159 to 148 over the course of November’s challenge. I’m hoping to slow it down a bit but still maintain my new habit of weighing and tracking all of my food. It’s made a huge difference in my success.

    @LesickaBod So, if my weigh in day is Monday, do I post this Monday or next Monday? I'm still kind of confused OR is this Monday like starting weight & then the following Monday, 1 week's worth of weight loss?

    I am also wondering this as my weigh in days are Sunday. I believe I am weighing in tomorrow.
