    Weighed myself today after a few days of emotional eating. It isn't the worst, I've gone from 76.5kg to 76.2kg but nevertheless need to get back on track in the next few days! Anyone else struggle with looking to food for comfort.

    GW 240 (or less!)

    W1-7 in previous posts, cut to avoid overly long posts.

    W8 9/22: 248.4. Down .2 from last week. Best this week was 247.0 yesterday and Friday, but I way overdid it tailgating yesterday. The team won 72-20. No tailgating the next 3 weekends, but it is our anniversary and my birthday next week, then back to back weddings the next two weekends.

    W9 9/29: 246.4, best 245.6 yesterday. It’s my anniversary today and my birthday on Wednesday!

    W10 10/6: out of town. 246.8 on the 4th, 248.4 on the 7th.

    W11 10/13: 244.4. Best this week: 243.6 yesterday. Down 2 lbs from my last “official” weigh in 2 weeks ago. Yesterday marked the last of my 3 week long “event” period, with my wedding anniversary, my birthday, and 2 weddings. The previous 2 weeks were basically maintenance weeks, but i feel I’m back on track this week and ready to keep moving forward.

    W12 10/20: 245.4. I’m up a pound from last week, but I am down an inch from my waist and an inch and a half from my hips, so there is that. And I’ve lost 16.5 this challenge and 26.5 total. Back to tailgating next week, then 2 consecutive 13 hour days for conferences the next week. Fun stuff.

    W13 10/27: 241.8 yesterday for a 30lbs total loss and 20lbs for the challenge. Back up today after tailgating yesterday, but only 3 days with students and an actual day off this week on Thursday. So, feeling pretty good. Was hoping to be below 240 by the end of October. May not hit that, but should be close.

    W14 11/3: 242.2 yesterday, 244.4 today. Good times, lol. No tailgating this weekend, but no school Thursday and teacher meetings friday, tomorow, and Tuesday means my built in activity is gone for almost a whole week. Went for a run on Thursday, but I fell and skinned my knee so bad it still hurts today, so I skipped the run I was planning yesterday. Will go on a walk during the lunch break again tomorrow like I did Friday.

    W15 11/10: friday was my best at 240.2, up to 241.6 yesterday. Really hoping to get out of the 240s soon. Have a full week of school ahead of me, which is great for my step counts, and tailgating on Saturday. Hoping for nice weather...

    W8 9/23: 145.4 finally back on track and moving back down on the scale.
    W9 9/30: 145.9 was 140.9 yesterday, but had way to much alcohol and snack foods for the Cowboys game last night.

    W13 10/27: 227.0. Still making progress...joined this challenge six weeks in. Down 29+ in 7 weeks. My goal of 215 by 12/1 may be a little optimistic, but I’m gonna give it a shot.

    W14 11/1: 223.8. Weighing in early due to currently living a 5 day week instead of the normal 7. Been walking a lot ...just added it up..129K steps over the last 7 days or just over 60 miles. No wonder my feet are sore. Well 9 lbs left to meet my challenge goal.

    W15 11/11: 218.8. So today was designated weigh day and results were encouraging. 5 more pounds down isince November 1st. Still might make my goal weight yet by the end of this challenge.

    W16 11/17: 240.8 today, up from 239.0 on Friday for a loss of 21.1 as of today, 22.9 for the weekly best from friday. Friday’s weigh-in made my goal of below 240, and I’m expecting to be steady in the 230’s by mid week (didn’t do bad on calories at the tailgate yesterday, but definitely some water retention from the alcohol) Next Saturday is our last tailgate this year, and it sounds like we’re going back to basics: just my husband and me for almost the whole time. Still get to use my brother-in-law’s parking pass, though.

    Does anyone else here want to join me if I start a new thread end of this month called "Lose 20 lbs by March 1 Accountability Buddies"? I have found it enormously helpful to check in here weekly with you all. If we started a new Accountability Buddies thread around 11/30 we could report Dec 1 as its start day, seamlessly overlapping with our "Final!!!!!" day here. It will be great to reflect/celebrate on Dec 1, but I think that having a new goal date (March 1), with the "baby step" dates in between, will help me keep up momentum toward (eventually) meeting my GW.
    Anyone else interested in this?

    Does anyone else here want to join me if I start a new thread end of this month called "Lose 20 lbs by March 1 Accountability Buddies"? I have found it enormously helpful to check in here weekly with you all. If we started a new Accountability Buddies thread around 11/30 we could report Dec 1 as its start day, seamlessly overlapping with our "Final!!!!!" day here. It will be great to reflect/celebrate on Dec 1, but I think that having a new goal date (March 1), with the "baby step" dates in between, will help me keep up momentum toward (eventually) meeting my GW.
    Anyone else interested in this?

    I would be interested. I need the accountability!
