    Goal weight: 155
    Current weight: 179
    Total weight lost: 8 lb
    This week's successes: I kept to my fitness goals.
    This week's challenges: On the whole I ate good, non processed food. We had a storm here at the weekend so I stayed in with the kids and baked. Erm that'll be why the scales haven't moved. A moment on the lips, a few weeks more on the hips ;)

    Good luck for the week ahead all

    Week 6 of 52 is in the books.

    Starting weight: 233 lbs (106 kg)
    Goal weight: 170 lbs (77 kg)
    Current weight: 217.8 lbs (99 kg)
    Total weight lost: 15.2 lbs (7 kg)

    This week's successes: Still on track. I'm getting faster on the bike and able to pull more resistance on the stationary. My strength is also coming up during lifting (bigger muscles burn more calories after all). On large, eating well, staying under my calorie target of 1,500.
    This week's challenges: Knee pain. Never really had knee issues, but working out has irritated/exposed an issue with my right knee.

    Reading a lot of good posts with some good forward progress. Even if you're not losing as you hoped, you are changing habits and trying new things to stay on track while openly admitting to the challenges you're having. Entering the “Fall Off the Wagon Day” week where resolutions begin to lose their luster, I'm looking forward to seeing this group adding to your progress, talking of your successes and challenges, and reminding me that I am not alone in resisting being a statistic by thinking "I can do this." I'll see you next week.

    Original post:
    I'm not sure I have 52 pounds of fat that I want/need to lose at this point, but I'm close enough that I'm going to call myself "in."

    Starting weight: 197.1 pounds
    (HSW: 252, MFP restart: 242.7)
    5'1" F

    Goal: 21.5% body fat
    (currently estimated at 140-145)

    Current weight: 197.1
    Total challenge weight lost: 0.0

    This week's successes: Getting back into deficit after a maintenance break.
    This week's challenges: Extremely low motivation (for life-ing in general -- not out of the norm, as I battle physical and mental health issues on an ongoing basis).

    A heads up: I will likely go faster than 1 pound/week for the first 4-ish months, then looking to tighten up and go into a slow loss followed by a recomp phase. I'll likely make 52 pounds of weight loss on the scale with some skin loss (hopefully), along with lean mass having to do with the support of the fat stores I have. I am aiming to maintain/increase muscle mass and bone density, so that may throw off the scale results. I do hope to reach my goal body fat percentage by the year's end, whatever scale weight that puts me at.

    I would like to join this challenge. I have been at my goal weight a couple of times in the past and know how good it feels. As I get older (57), it is getting harder to do the things I need to do to lose and maintain the lower weight. I am looking forward to reaching my goal again this year. Let's do this!

    Starting weight: 177.6 (January 1, 2020)
    Goal weight: 130.0
    Current weight: 168.0 (Friday, February 14th)
    This week's weight loss: .4 lbs
    Total weight lost: 9.6 lbs
    This week's successes: Small loss but a loss none-the-less.
    This week's challenges: Weekends are always a challenge but starting off with Valentine's Day is an excuse to not eat right. I will try not to eat ALL the chocolate/desserts.

    Weigh-in day - Friday
