    MY NAME IS DONNA. I AM 59 YEARS YOUNG & FROM THE MIDWEST USA. I AM APPROX 5’ 5” TALL.



    Start date: August 1st, 2019
    Challenge Starting Weight: 202.0
    Challenge Level: ✴✴✴✴
    Challenge Goal weight: 184.0

    August 01: 202.0 Where am I going to go with this? To the Moon, Alice! (The Honeymooners, Sorry, I’m showing my age!) I feel good about this round.
    August 08: 195.8 I have worked hard this past week & am keeping the slip-ups more in control. However, I’ll never be perfect so I am just happy to continue the losses, no matter how big or small! This week was a good week.
    August 15: 195.4. I’m grinning ear to ear to see continued downward trend. Hard work is paying off!
    August 22: 196.2 Went up higher yet, but I’ve dropped it back down a bit. On my way to better, bolder, brighter, beautiful!
    August 29: 195.4 Better.
    August 31: 192.6 Even Better

    Total Loss for August……………… -9.4 lbs. Lost

    September 01: 192.6 Trying to stay strong over the 4 day Holiday weekend!
    September 05: 194.6 Bit by the holiday on the *kitten*!
    September 12: 195.4 I can do better!
    September 19: 195.0 Travel hurt me this past week. But down a touch and every little bit helps!
    September 26: 196.6 Travel again, home last night, bad weigh-in today & lack of movement in car. More travel today. I hope to lose this water retention this week & be back at home in my “safe zone” where sticking to plan is much easier!
    September 30: 192.0 Finally I beat the travel bloat! But traveling again today! Ugg.

    Total Loss for September………….. -0.6 lbs. Lost

    October 01: 194.4 Direct after-travel weigh-in
    October 03: 191.6 Working hard on this. 2 more days of travel upcoming and the next weigh-in will be directly following it. I hate when that happens and I have to report temporary bloat!

    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 husbands 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
    09/28: 140.9 super excited about this. Have seen this number a couple of times before. Hoping it will stick
    09/30: 140.9b I am going with Saturday and Sundays number. Today was 145.9 beer and lots of it yesterday.

    Total Loss For Sept: 140.9 = 2.7 pounds
    Total Loss For Challenge: : 2.8 pounds

    10/01:146.5 I changed up some medications and think this is just water retention. Hopefully it goes away soon.
    10/05: 141.5 I would have liked it to be a little lower, but these last couple of pounds in the 140’s are rough.

    Lack of sleep and bloat? I will keep trying because I saw 124 yesterday.

    October 10: 191.8 I lost all of my fabulous progress this week after taking 2 different trips. Lots of driving/car sitting & restaurant food. Not always the best of choices. I hope much of this is fluid retention. I will be working on the damage all week! Never say Never!
