    Starting Weight on 4/1/2019: 280
    Current Challenge Weight: 195.6
    Goal Weight: 180 (this is my ultimate goal weight from when I started my WLJ last April. It will mark a 100 lb total weight loss. These last 15 lbs will most likely be the toughest for me, but I will give it my best shot! Good luck everyone!)

    W1 12/1: 195.6
    W2 12/8: 193 (upped my workouts this past week, but have been eating back all my calories...apparently not enough! I'll take it though :) We'll see if it holds by next week.)
    W3 12/15: 191.6 (Thought for sure I would gain some back this week but reduced my salt intake and not retaining as much water now.)
    W4 12/22: 192.6 (yesterday I was 190.8, but today is weigh-in for the challenge. I'm used to these wild swings. They've been happening since day one of my journey. No worries.... Merry Christmas everyone!)

    Starting Weight: 240 (July 2019)
    Challenge Starting Weight: 218.1 (Dec 1, 2019)
    Goal Weight: 198

    W1 12/1: 218.1 - Enjoyed Thanksgiving but didn't succumb to it
    W2 12/8: 217.2 - Continuing to move in the right direction
    W3 12/15: 218.1 - Yikes! I need to commit to exercising harder ... starting right now.
    W4 12/22: 216 - That's better. I'm going to chalk last week up to water weight and maybe getting a little too lax on the holiday party eating. I'm close to my second milestone goal of 215 by EOY so 1 more pound in 9 days seems easily within reach. That being said, I'm going to need to move the needle a bit faster to get down 20 lbs by April 1st.

    I weigh in on Wednesdays, so I'll be updating on the days listed below. I just joined today, and for the last several weeks, I've just been logging my weight and walking a little bit more, no strenuous exercise. I'm preparing to start the Body for Life program next week (I need to go shopping for lots of protein), so I'm expecting to see some changes.

    Still making progress.......tomorrow I fully anticipate a dietary train wreck, but will make no apologies. I’m ahead of the curve for my weight loss for year’s end and was good on Thanksgiving and have to work for the new year so 1 out of 3 isn’t bad in my book. Peace!

    My weigh-in days are Mondays (usually the highest day of the week) My goal is to get between 135-138 even on a Monday by the end of this challenge and officially be in maintenance.

    Current Weight: 144.4
    Goal Weight:135-138

    W1 12/1: 144.4 extremely exaggerated number due to Thanksgiving, 5 day weekend with lots of alcohol, TOM, and still getting over shingles
    W1 12/2: 145.7 I have gained almost 8 pounds since Wednesday. Obviously carbs, sodium, alcohol, and not real weight. Hopefully be back down next week.
    W2 12/9: 138.8 and I am back down. This is my best Monday weigh-in ever!
    W3 12/16: 142.2 This is Tuesdays weigh-in. Forgot yesterday. We had 2 parties and a 3 day weekend. Should be down soon.
    W4 12/23: 144.5 I am ready for January! This has been a rough month, lol

    Hello! I hope it's okay to jump in. I love this! Thanks! I need the flexibility of the "once a week" posting but I really wanted to join a challenge. My ultimate goal is at my goal by may 8 so this challenge fits in absolutely perfectly!
