    I'm in. I'm not sure what my weight is (i wanted to lose some before weighing so as not to get discouraged by how much I'm starting out at) but I'm on day 31 of logging and the way my pants fit I'm guessing I'm in the 210 area. So I will officially weigh in and start January 1st and determine my goal from there then weigh in weekly.
    Good luck!

    Ok so I decided to bite the bullet and weigh this morning. So I'll will be doing my weigh ins on Fridays. Hoping to get under 200 by challenge end.

    CW: 210.4
    Challenge goal: 199.8
    Final goal: 126ish

    @sassysmom35 You are my challenge twin. I had put starting weight 210 and GW 199 ie Onederland.
    I did the same as you, started logging food but didn't step on scale not to get discouraged by the number. I estimate I have lost 20 lbs already.
    I am 5ft7. My UGW is 130ish

    That's awesome. Except for height we are total twinsies! That'll make it even more fun to have someone similar in so many ways. Do you mind if I add you as a friend?

    Damn straight I'm in. I've already joined the lose 30 in 3 months group. This really shouldn't be too bad. I'll go by my lowest weight so far as I put on water weight from yesterday. Starting 188, goal to be 178 or lower by Valentine's Day. I'm feeling pretty confident based on my weight loss through just diet over the past year. Time to kick it up a notch!

    So... SW: 210.8 lbs. I wanted to start exactly on the 1st.
    Started the day and year with a (fast for me) 5 mile.
    if every day were like today I'd weigh 197 lbs in 5 weeks. Oh well... Tomorrow will be more normal ie I'll eat back exercise calories

    I've lost about 100, but it's starting to get away from me due to a hip.

    CW: 169.4
    GW: 150

    If I can be back in the 150's by Valentine's, I'll be thrilled.

    I’m in. I think 5# by Valentine’s day is a more reasonable goal for me since I am trying to build muscle at the same time. We are going to Cancun on the 18th but I am committed to not pigging out on vacation.

    CW: 130
    GW: 125

    Anyone is also welcome to add me. I’ve been on mfp for awhile, but most of my friends have dropped off.

    I am late to the party it seems! Not sure I can do the whole 10 pounds by February 14th but I am going to try! Hoping a few of these pounds were water weight from the holidays.

    CW: 146 lbs
    GW: 120 lbs

    I’m only 5’4

    I’ll join, but am already in the New Years Challenge. So I’ll log my weigh in here on Mon the 31st, and might shoot for a 5lb loss until V-day. Why not keep it going, right? :)

    Rolling over to this group now- keeping it going!

    I have already lost about 3-4 pounds ( been dieting & exercising since early Dec), which is the best new year present & worth my being vigilant during the xmas season .

    Would love to lose a further 8 pounds
    by 14 feb , to give myself the best Valentine's day present .

    happy 2019 all !

    4 more days until I can weigh in and see how I did over this vacation. There have been so many family visits, parties and dinner dates - but I think I’ve done pretty well! It’s also been unfortunately sedentary around here except for my 3 runs each week, but I’m still hopeful I’ve not done too badly. 🤞🏻

    No need to wait .... if you want to do an interim weigh-in check (whether you post it here or not), DO SO!

    The more data-points you gather, the more correlations you can make. (what did I do that helped / hindered desired results since last time?)

    The more correlations you can make, the more information you can apply to help make better and better choices over time.
