    So I did pretty bad 😂

    I went on vacation for a week with family and unfortunately I had such a hard time staying on goal with trying to accurately calculate calories (we went out to eat a lot) and I had no scale so I didn’t weigh myself until I got back.

    December 31st I weighed in at 213!! 🙁

    However, this Friday (my usual weigh in day) I weighed in at 207.8 so I feel like I’m back on track! Drinking lots of fluids and going back to my workout regiment definitely helped this week. 8.8 pounds to go!

    So long as you promptly get back to normal routine (whatever that is for you) now that you are back in your normal environment, your body will process the a-typical vacation input quickly.

    You know this, because it has already begun ... you "feel [you] are on back on track!"

    Life happens, vacations will continue to happen .... embrace and allow for variations and make modifications to strategies and expectations as you go!

    This is great! I need a little motivation to get me back on track. I went the the gym the other day and weighed myself at 136--that is up 10 lbs since Thanksgiving! So, even if it was a weird fluke I am saying I am currently 136-hope to loose that 10!!

    Hey there! I am 210 lbs now. So I need motivation to reach Onderland. I am starting a new job in Jan so I don't know how that's going to impact my exercise and meal planning. I'll need all the motivation I can get to drop 10/12 lbs.

    SW: 210
    GW: 199

    I actually started proper on January 2nd, exactly at 210.0 lbs.
    CW:? (next update Wednesday 9th)

    I weigh daily just to have the data. The numbers on the scale are, predictably, up and down. That drove me crazy this week.
    Maybe because I have been 210 for so long (since around December 20).
    Variations are to be expected. But overall, taking in fewer calories in than are burnt out WILL result in weight loss.

    I think I'm a little late to the party ... with 5+ weeks to go till Feb14th, do you think I can lose 10lbs?

    CW: 205lbs.

    I'd like to try that. I am 168 lb (21lb over my target). I recently lost 180lb of useless weight (in the form of an unnecessary husband) so am very much feeling ready and motivated to lose a bit more!

    @mac90kh ,
    you don't have to commit to losing 10 pounds by Valentine's Day; I "m going to be on a road trip holiday & unable to exercise daily & maybe eating a bit more for 2 weeks in January , so I opted to shoot for an 8 pound loss ! I have already lost about 1.5-2 pounds.

    Finally got on the scale!
    Goal 2/14: 148
    12/27: 160
    12/28: 161.4
    12/29: 159
    12/30: 153
    12/31: 155
    1/2: 161.2
    1/5 160.2
    1/6 160.2
    1/7 161.2

    I actually had the same weight for 2 days in a row, kind of hard to believe! Not really a shocker that I'm up today since I had a few glasses of wine and did my weights super late in the evening, I'm kind of surprised that I'm not up more...I think I'm going to try to make Thursday my official weigh in day since Wed is my only rest day this month and that probably means that my weight will be at it's most stable on Thursday morning.

    Depends on a whole host of things, but it seems a lot at this point. Maybe shoot for 5-6 and see how you go? It's all pretty arbitrary anyway. ;) But some people find this kind of thing helps keep them on track with their logging and hitting their calorie/macro targets.

    Aim for the stars .... you just might make it to the moon! (expression from the pre-space flight centuries when the moon was thought to be the farther target .... )
