If you do this.... lose one pound a week next New Year’s Eve you will have accomplished a significant goal.

I have used this Challenge the past two years as a means to focus my WL effort on an achievable weekly goal. I lost 30 pounds in 2017 and although I did not meet my goal in 2018, I found this challenge kept me accountable.

Join in if you're ready to do it this for the next 52 weeks, one pound at a time.

Get In exercise, eat healthy, veggies, fruit & protein... Beware of your portions and mindlessly eating when you’re not really hungry, just bored.

Share your successes and challenges. You are not alone in this journey. We are all working towards goal.

Weigh in weekly... or daily... whatever works for you. Just copy the information below and paste it in your post.

Welcome to the 2019 Lose 52 Pounds in 52 Weeks Challenge.

    Me too please. 52 lb in 52 weeks sounds very doable. I usually set myself up for failure by trying to lose too much too quickly

    This week's success: consumed within caloric intake goals

    Can I join if my goal is to lose slower than that (I'm shooting for 2lbs per month)? I've had a rough couple of years with injuries and stress at work, and I've gained back almost 20lbs. I need to find a way to get myself back on the right track.
