    Cool, this ends on my birthday Dec 1st :)...count me in!

    SW 280
    CW 223 (7/27/2019)
    UGW 180

    W1 8/4: 220.4 (officially 60 lbs down from my SW)
    W2 8/11: 217.8 (my lowest was 217.6 this week then back to 219 and ended here today :) )
    W3 8/18: 216.2
    W4 8/25: 215 (one month down, -5.4 lbs, -65 lbs total)

    W5 9/1: 213.6
    W6 9/8: 213.8
    2nswp4859zak.png(this week, I'm holding onto water weight because of medication adjustment. hopefully it sorts out in a week or two but yesterday I was 216, so all is looking in the right direction.)
    W7 9/15: 211.8
    W8 9/22: 209.8 (I was actually shocked I lost 2 lbs this week! Even went out for Mexican food, which I rarely go out to eat. I did hit it pretty hard with cardio and weight training though....Pleasantly surprised!)
    W9 9/29: 207.8 (two months complete, -12.6 lbs. for this challenge and -72 lbs. total since April)

    W10 10/6: 206.6
    W11 10/13: 205.6
    W12 10/20: 204.8 (crazy fluctuations this week. From 206 to 203.8 back to 205.6 and today at 204.8)
    W13 10/27: 203.4 (three months complete, -17 lbs for this challenge and -77 lbs total since April)

    W14 11/3: 201.2 (another crazy fluctuating week. my weight went to 200 and even dipped to 198.8 and ended today at 201.2 Still over 2 lb loss on the week, which is more than I expected in first place. The 200's aren't going to give the 100's to me that easy ;) haha
    W15 11/10: 199.4 (woohoo, back to onederland!)
    W16 11/17: 197.2
    W17 11/24: 196.6 (4 months complete, -23.8 lbs for this challenge and almost -84 lbs total since April of this year. Going into Thanksgiving week and my birthday on 12/1, I may gain a couple lbs back or not :) ... I only have around 16 lbs to ultimate goal now!)

    Final!!!! 12/1: 195.6 (a couple days late but I was away at my sisters through my birthday on 12/1. I was surprised I finished down from last weigh in, considering Thanksgiving weekend and birthday. I worked out and still watched my diet fairly close but splurged on a lot of the delicious foods and pies! )

    Total loss: 24.8 lbs for this challange and 85 lbs since April of this year.

    What I've learned about myself: Finding strength when I felt like I didn't have it in me. To never give up even though I wanted to so many times. I'm in my 50s and this to me is my last real shot at getting back the body I once had and to be healthy again.
