    January 1st - 181.4
    January 2nd -181.1 So glad to have my new digital scale so that I feel rewarded by "good" days. I am also happy with my decision to weigh every day, it makes me mindful every night that I will be weighing in the morning and affects my choices.
    January 3rd - 181.9
    January 4th - 181.7
    January 5th - 178.7
    January 6th - 182.5 Crazy how everything fluctuates. I couldn't believe yesterday, so weighed 5 times. Up 3.8 from yesterday, but I have skating on the docket for today. Perhaps I will discover a trend in something that I am doing, eating, or something that I am not eating with how it affects me.
    January 7th - 181.7
    January 8th - 183.0 - really don't get the gain this time, I was in really good numbers all week.
    January 9th - 182.2 - I seriously expect a really big loss soon. I am just sticking with it. I am working very long hours this week, maybe my body is holding on to it just in case.
    January 10th - 179.8 - not getting too excited, I see how I can be almost 4 pounds more the next day. Still, glad to be slightly under 180 at least for today : - )
    January 11th - 180.7
    January 12th - 182.4 - I was less disciplined in December and still lost weight, yet this month I am being so careful and am just not dropping weight. I have to stick with it.
    January 13th - 181.4
    January 14th - 181.7
    January 15th - 181.6
    January 16th - 180.3 - I have seen the 70s twice this month already, but not getting my hopes up just yet. Skating yesterday and again today. I work out every day no matter what, but skating seems to be the difference maker. Maybe because it is so fun and relieves me of stress at the same time as torching lots of calories. 16 days of discipline to lose a 1/2 of a pound is ridiculous.
    January 17th - 178.7 - Yay! 2 days of public skating makes such a difference. Wish that I could do it year round, it is the only thing that I enjoy for an entire hour.
    January 18th - 178.7 - No skating, so not even .1 of a pound. I did 30 minutes of Zumba yesterday and only managed to eat 1100 calories. Public skating is 3 days per week unless I drive to a different town. Lol, thinking about that!
    January 19th - 179.2
    January 20th - 180.7 - lack of sleep.
    January 21st - 180.7 - Up 2 pounds from the 18th. Even skated yesterday. I can't give up now though. Only 10 days until the end of the month. Hoping for a woosh. Very frustrated, not feeling like it is worth all of the effort today. Did 55 minutes of zumba. 4 days in the 70s this month, c'mon body!
    January 22nd - 180.9 - luckily I have skating today. .5 of a pound is not good enough for 22 days. Plateau?
    January 23rd - 178.9 - skating yesterday and again today, then none again until next week unless I can find a frozen pond while I am away for 5 days. I leave tomorrow and it is going to be a challenge with foodie friends cooking very high calorie foods. I was hoping to have had a bit of a cushion by this time in January so that I could enjoy myself on this trip, but I have had to be clawing for every increment of a pound.
    January 24th - 178.5 - result of ice skating yesterday. 7 days left in the month, 2 more opportunities for public skating before that. I won't be able to weigh in again until next Tuesday.
    January 25th -
    January 26th -
    January 27th -
    January 28th -
    January 29th - 178.6 - Not too bad! Glad to only have put on .1 of a pound, so much eating and drinking, birthday party, eating out. I was able to keep up my workouts. Only 2 days left of the month, 2 of those are skating days, so hoping to drop a bit more.
    January 30th - 177.3 - Yahoo! Skating today again too, hoping to end the month strong.
    January 31st - 176.3 - Wow, such a frustrating month, can't believe that I reached the goal. 2 days of skating, 2 nights of actually sleeping. Pretty happy!

    Running loss/gain for January - 5.1 loss for January

    Back again! Hopefully I can make up for December. I maintained which I guess is good, but didn’t lose much. I am looking forward to seeing that 140 decade this month.

    Original starting weight - 178
    December End Weight - 152.4
    January starting weight - 151.2
    January goal - 145
    Ultimate goal - 135

    January 1st - 151.2 good luck everyone!
    January 3rd - 156.3 ( up 5.1 pounds) My New Years day has caught up with me. Plus we had a freak blizzard where we live and got trapped in the house for 2 days. I didn't do to bad, but ate way more carbs than usual and it shows. It will be gone within a day or 2, but annoying still. This month I am hitting at least 146!
    January 10 th - 150.9 (down 1.5 pounds) Waiting for a woosh. Been here for a couple of days, so we will see what happens next week. I should see that elusive 140 decade.
    January 17th - 149.6 ( down 2.8 pounds) was lower yesterday but had a pretty big dinner. Was really hungry and ate even after I was full. Still happy with this number and ready to get to my 5 pound loss for the first time since doing these challenges.
    January 24th - 149.4 (down 3 pounds) I'll take it. Hopefully I can finish next week lower, but am happy with this month so far!
    January 31st - 148.5 (down 3.9 pounds) Can't complain and will take it. I did way better this month than I did last month.

    Total loss for January - 3.9 pounds See you in February!

    Once again, January was fantastic for me!

    The last two weeks really gave me motivation and results, which passed my expectations completely! I decided to end January with my lowest weight which was the 28th. That same day I went for a major hike and burned off an extra ounce but my weight didn't budge and I didn't know why...Well, later on that day I knew why: TOM! That explained it! So my body is "recalculating" and I will weigh-in after things are back to "normal".

    On to February! Let's do this!

    Jan 20th: 202.6 booo!
    ***8 day detox/fast***
    Jan 28th: 188.0 (TOM)

    -14.6 lbs!!!

    God is good!! Amen!

    I am READY to continue hitting my goals in February! In January, I am happy to report I lost 4.5lbs and down 3% of my body weight! At first I was a bit discouraged the first few weeks of January since the scale was not moving as much as I thought it should, LOL! I had stopped drinking all alcohol (I think my body was in shock, where was the vino???!!!!), eating healthy (prior I usually ate a pretty well balanced healthy diet) and focused on working out!

    Needless to say, calculating the % of loss in Jan, I am thrilled!

    All the best to everyone and achieving February GOALS!
