    I like your way of displaying progress, cachoey, so I'm going to follow suit. Much easier to follow.

    I've been yo-yo-ing between 155-160 during all of November. My original goal was to get to 145 by Christmas, but I don't think that is going to happen. So I'll settle with 150 and *hope* to reach it early.

    I just found this challenge. I’m starting 2 days late on November 26.

    Starting weight: 184.0
    Ending weight: TBD
    Goal weight: 179.0

    November 26: 184.0
    November 27: 187.8
    November 28: 185.6
    November 29: 183.6
    November 30: 182.4 Thanksgiving Dinner Feast tonight with family. I expect a gain on the scale tomorrow.
    December 01: 187.4 I honestly ate child sized portions but I guess it adds up. My best figure is under 2300 but I did quick calories on MFP at 2350. I burned almost 2600 so I’m not sure I understand the gain when I know there was less calories in than out, but that’s carbs for ya! Okay so I am supposed to lose 5 pounds by Christmas and I gain 5 pounds overnight just by eating at maintenance! So I have my work cut out for me but I’m not a quitter so here goes nothing!
    December 02: (Goal for 1st week: 183.0) Actual weight: 183.2 Yay! TMI potty helped tremendously as it had been a few days. So I have about made goal afterall and am pleased as punch! Now, to keep up the momentum!
    December 03: 183.6 This must be a normal fluctuation. Everything was perfect yesterday-Calories, Carbs & Increased exercise. It will show up sooner or later because diligence always pays off!
