    Aug 15: 254.4 down 3lbs
    Sept 1: 251.4 down 6lbs

    Sept 8: 251.0, down .4 lbs since last week, 6.4 since start of the challenge. Was at 250.0 yesterday. Sundays and Mondays are always seem to go up a few decimal points...

    Sept 15: 248.6 down. 2.4 since last week, 8.8 since start. Best this week was 247.8 yesterday and Friday. Not bad of a “gain” after quite a tailgating experience yesterday! (In state rival, college gameday, 14 hours of tailgaiting and football only to go home 1 minute into the second quarter due to the second lightning delay, torrential downpour, and flash flooding. Watched the team lose by blowing an opportunity at the last second due to a bonehead mistake)

    Sept 22: 248.4. Down .4 since last week. Best this week was 247.0 yesterday and Friday. Tailgating did me in yesterday; the team won 72-20. Next 3 weeks off tailgating, but they're going to be busy. Next weekend is our anniversary followed immediately by my birthday mid week followed by back-to-back weddings the next 2 weekends after that. I am going to have to practice the self-control I did not show yesterday. LOL.

    By October I hope to lose the last 8-10 pounds and be in maintenance. I have been doing this for a year now and assumed I would already be there, but alas I am still working on it. So good luck everyone! My weigh in days will be every Saturday. They seem to be my best days and the lowest.

    Challenge Starting Weight: 143.7
    Challenge Level: 2 (technically my goal is to lose 8.7 pounds)
    Challenge Goal weight: 135

    08/01: 143.7 I think this is a little higher than it should be, but we are starting here.
    08/03: 142.2 I've been here for a couple of days now, hoping for a loss next week
    08/10: 139.6 this seems super low today. It will probably bounce up a bit, but I’m happy with it today
    08/17: 142.1 I have not been doing great this last week. Monday I’m back on track I matter what.
    08/24: 142.1 same as last week but that’s ok. The last couple of weeks I have not been on my best game!
    8/31: In Texas to deal with Mark’s dad’s stuff

    Total Loss For August:143.6 = a loss of 0.1 pound (not a great month, lol)

    9/01: In Texas NS
    09/07: 143.8 I’m on a diet break right now so this is pretty good
    09/14: 143.2 Just getting back into the swing of things. Looking to finish strong and around 141.xxxx
    09/21: 143.7 was a lot lower yesterday, but ate Chinese for lunch. Sodium I am sure

    100% not going to be able to get down to 224 by the end of October... but at least it's gone down some... I hope I can reach 229 at least, but probably not.

    I say post anyway. I hate when I have to post little or no progress, but it motivates me during the week, so... 🤷‍♀️ Hugs🤗

    Challenge Starting Weight: 184.6
    Challenge Level: ✴✴✴✴
    Challenge Goal weight: 164

    I started this adventure back in May as I was at my heaviest. I wasn' feeling good and my confidence was in the toilet. I was to get married in July and to be honest I didn't want to look back at photos from my wedding day and be completely unhappy with how I looked. I am a full time EMT so unfortunately I have a pretty inactive job. I used to work out a lot but right now I am finding that eating an very low calorie/low carb diet is working for me. When I start to work out I feel like I have to double my intake and I usually end up plateauing instead. I'm currently focused on weight loss. I will focus on toning later.

    August 8th: 184.6
    August 13th: 182.8 I'm not doing much to really lose weight at this point.
    August 31st: 181
    I did't track much this month. I was having a really hard time getting in the swing of things.

    Total Loss for August……………… -3.6lbs.

    September 4th: 181 Still not doing much, I keep saying tomorrow but my will power to walk away from the junk food in the EMS rooms has not been there.
    September 8th: 179.6 I'm getting there
    September 9th: 179.2 been walking away from the junk food:)
    September 16th: 178.8 super excited that I'm still making this happen but i need to step it up
    September 22nd: 177.8 even better. Finally drinking sufficient amounts of water
    September 24th: 177.2 Every little bit counts
    September 25th 175.6 I have been really good about walking away from the junk food. Trust me this can be really hard at 2am. This is really exciting! I haven't been below 180 since 2012.
