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



    Start date: November 1st, 2019
    Challenge Starting Weight: 188.0
    Challenge Level: ✴✴✴✴ (16 lbs.) Pretty ambitious during all the major holidays!
    Challenge Goal weight: 172.0

    November 01: 188.0 Good Luck Everyone!
    November 06: 186.0 Happy with the progress for this week. I can see that the right choices combined with some movement really does pay off. Just a little slower at my age than it used to be, but still so rewarding. I am traveling on the 11th, which will likely set me back. So I'm feeling a little trepidation about my next weigh in, but I'll do my best to recover quickly!
    November 13: 188.6 Emotional eating related to health issues and worries. I am going to focus on the positive and give it my very best efforts!
    November 20: 184.6 I worked hard this week. Especially in the calorie burning category. I am trying not to let things get to me in regards to my test results. Still waiting for more news since the last call 1 week ago today. No news is good news, right?
    November 27: 187.8 This is the morning after a travel day where I had lots of sitting in the car & a restaurant meal. I practiced portion control but the mashed potatoes & gravy & dinner rolls apparently had carbs. Seriously though, I did expect an increase this morning but yikes……. Working on it today. My Thanksgiving dinner is not until Saturday so that will affect the December weigh-in. I’ve got a few days to make November a little better!
    November 30: 182.4 Happy with loss but today is my Thanksgiving Day Feast so tomorrow will not be something I will be proud to post.

    December 01: 187.4. Thanksgiving dinner last night with my family was wonderful. I ate child-sized portions but I did sample a few desserts. Even very small samples add up. But 5 pounds overnight when my calories in were less than my calories out? Humph! Okay, carbs hate me and I hate them right back so the real battle begins. My weight will be back down very soon!

    Only lost 3 pounds in the last challenge. I am averaging a pound a month, so not losing extremely fast anymore. Would love to get into my maintenance range by the end of the year, but we will see how it goes. My weigh-in days will be Saturdays.

    Original starting weight: 178
    Challenge Starting Weight: 140.7 (10/31 end of last challenge)
    Challenge Level: 1 (5 pounds)
    Challenge Goal weight: to be in maintenance 135-138

    Nov 1- 141.5 up a bit from Chinese food last night
    Nov 2 - 139.7 super stoked! This is a real number to, now I just have to try and hold on to through the weekend!
    Nov 9 - 140.7 up from husbands birthday celebration.
    Nov 16 - 140.6 not much of a loss, just kind of hanging out. Maybe next week I will get some movement in the right direction
    Nov 23 - 137.1 we will see if I can hold on to this loss!
    Nov 30 - 139.6 was yesterdays weigh-in and that's what I am going with for the month. Thanksgiving and alcohol killed me.

    November Loss Totals - 1.1 pounds


    Dec 1 - 144.4 dang TOM, shingles, Thanksgiving, and alcohol. I need to get back on track and get ready to prepare for Christmas,lol!

    December 04: 182.6 Okay, that’s better! Only 0.2 lbs over my lowest weight before the Thanksgiving Dinner Celebration. Travel this upcoming week. Lots of car sitting, but lots of walking & shopping involved too. There will be restaurants but I am going to knock down every pound that pops up as a result of my travels. No worries. I feel pretty strong.

    Original starting weight: 271.9
    Challenge Starting Weight: 243.8
    Challenge Level: 5 stars (24 lbs)
    Challenge Goal weight: below 220 (218.8)
    Ultimate goal: 160

    Nov 1: 243.8, up from 241.7 2 days ago. I think this is basically some excess water weight after taco night, but I did go out and run yesterday for the first time since school started back up. Was able to start back up with my c25k right where I left off and keep up the pace I had back in August. Until I tripped and fell and scrapped my knee up pretty bad. It hurts every time I move it. I was planning on going running again tomorrow, trying to get back on track, but now I’m not so sure.

    Nov 8: 240.2. Down 2.6. Knee is still a problem (large scrape means long heal time) but i’ve made my step goal before leaving school 2 of the 3 days this week, and was super close the 3rd day. In fact, was at 13k today after subbing in art during my prep and running stations in my classes. Hoping to be below 240 by next week.

    Nov 15 239.0. Down 4.8lbs this challenge, 1.2 lbs this week. I’ve been being careful not to snack in my car on my commute, which I think has been really helpful. Need to drink more water though. Goal for next week.

    Nov 22 237.4. Down 1.6 this week, 6.4 this challenge, 34.5 total. Hoping to maintain or lose about a pound next week, then have a Christmas and 6-hour drives to Chicago on either side of it the next weekend. So...none of that is good for moving numbers on the scale, but i think i can maintain to lose small amount each week and go into December in the 230’s.

    Nov 30: 241.2 too hungover to function yesterday, did not do a weigh in. Up today, but that is expected and should reverse quickly this week.
    Month 1 stats: down 2.6 this challenge, best this month was down 6.4. Carrying about 4 lbs of excess water right now, so fun.

    Dec 5 (traveling this weekend starting early tomorrow morning, so doing this a day early) 237.6. Back to my pre-thanksgiving weight and feeling good. It was a rough week at school, but there seems to be some fixes in motion, so there’s that. Had almost no alcohol this week, so that helps too. Gonna have to keep my head on my shoulders this weekend doing Christmas with my in-laws, which may be tough in the city that invented deep dish pizza...
