    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!
    Thank you!

    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.
    W5 12/29: 218.3 - Arrgh! With friends last night to watch The Ohio State - Clemson game last night (my daughter was there as part of the OSU marching band) but I 'snacked' on way too many of those soft pretzel bites (with all that salt) and I think I have some excess water as my weight jumped. I'm more than a little disappointed that December looks to be my first month of no forward progress since I started trying to lose weight. With one more party on New Year's Eve ahead, I'm going to need to be on my best (mindful eating) behavior and it looks like I have an extra long workout ahead of me today.

    What I'm learning about myself: It's not enough to just want it - steadfast commitment is really needed if you're serious about attaining your goals.

    Starting weight: 271.9
    Challenge starting Weight: 241.2
    Challenge goal Goal Weight: 215-220
    Ultimate goal: 165

    W1 12/1: 241.6 up .4 from yesterday, but not bad for having cooked a full thanksgiving meal for my husband and our friend.

    W2 12/8: traveling. No scale available.
    W3 12/13: 240.2. Down 1 pound this challenge. Was 239.8 yesterday. Actually did pretty good in Chicago last weekend. 14k steps walking around downtown on Saturday and even went on the viewing ledge on top of the Willis (sears) tower. Did not overdo the tapas friday night or the deep dish on Saturday, but definitely had my share of wine at my in-laws and snacks on the drive back to iowa. Bouncing around these 5lbs is getting a bit old, but at least i am maintaining, not gaining. I have a full week until my next Christmas, but my husband’s birthday is this week and it will be too cold to go running in sunday, i bet. Hoping for a small loss this coming week, then another small loss of maintenance over the holiday.

    W4 12/22: 241.3 Didn’t post. Don’t know why.
    W5 12/29: 241.3 this really has been a maintenance month. Wow. But taking into account the amount of pasta I’ve eaten this week and the sheer amount of mothing I’ve been doing, it’s surprising I’m not up. They’re opening a Planet Fitness across the street and I’m thinking of joining. I liked it when I had a membership at my old apartment, and winter is not a good time for running outside.

    @metubal, I share your grrr. I gained it all back and then some, and now am at my heaviest. MFP helped me lose 15. I wish you great strides forward in this group- we'll do this again and keep it off. One day at a time...

    W4 12/22: 154.6 waist: 30.5"
    W5 12/29: 157.2 waist: 30"
    I'm doing a 30 day challenge: 50 burpees, lunges, jump squats & 100 squats per day as my evening workout in addition to the weekly routine I already do in the morning. Essentially trading at least 20 min of sitting on the couch snacking for a total body burn out. Apparently, my combination increased weight while decreasing waist. I'm not going to complain! I feel more toned and lean.

    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
    W5 12/30: 143.7 So ready to stop partying and eating, lol! Next week I hope to be back in the 130's

    @jenn990205, how do you lose so fast? Lots of water or cardio? Tell me your secrets! I've not seen the 130's for a couple of years now. I've been stuck in the 150's all year...
