    Update as of 2/5:

    Starting weight January 1, 2021: 211
    Goal weight:150
    Current weight: 206.6
    Total weight lost: 4.4

    This week's successes:
    I am still losing weight, and my kitty is taking well to his diet. He lost .2 pounds this last week too. Also I got to eat inside a restaurant for the first time in almost a year to celebrate my little brother's birthday!

    This week's challenges:
    I have been super tired and hungry this week, so snacking has been a bit out of control. Also there was a lot of ordering in because I was too tired to cook. Hopefully that will calm down.

    Hi guysss I hope you don't mind me joining late. I previously lost a lot of weight with slimming world however I have since gained all the weight back :/ I attempted slimming world again but it just didn't work and I actually gained weight!
    I'm hoping calorie counting along with the motivation from you guys can get me to where I need and want to be.

    Starting weight 197lb
    Goal weight 160lb
    Ultimate goal weight 140lb

    Starting weight: 247.4 lbs (1/1/2021)
    Goal weight for 2021: 196
    Current weight: 241.4 lbs (2/5/2021)
    Total weight lost: 7 lbs

    7 lbs in 7 weeks? I'm right on track!

    This week's successes: I'm starting to get my snacking under better control. My breakfasts and lunches clocked in a bit light this week so I had a couple hundred "extra" calories to work with, and I successfully resisted buying snacks from the vending machine or cafe at work, instead planning for a treat after dinner and sticking to that plan. My shoulder is also better now!

    This week's challenges: Still working on those snacks. I also need to better manage my time on the weekends to make sure I get all the meal prepping done that needs to be - I nearly didn't this past weekend.

    I am starting this at 185 pounds so my goal weight for this challenge is 135 pounds. I will post weekly my current weight and my weekly goal rate to keep myself on track and motivated.

    SW00: 185.0
    WK01: 182.1 (184)
    WK02: 183.0 (183)
    WK03: 181.9 (182)
    WK04: 183.0 (181)
    WK05: 181.9 (180)
    WK06: 180.8 (179)

    Last Week's Successes: While a pound behind my goal still, I lost a pound! I also started to wake up earlier as I had planned.

    Last Week's Challenges: Again, I did not get all my walks and PT exercises as I had planned. Still putting others before myself and it's been super cold and icy - both of these were my excuses this week.

    Last Week's Plan: I will wake up earlier to start having some more "me" time so I will not feel the pressure to take care of everyone else's needs instead of my own.

    This Week's Plan: Create a schedule to include my children into my exercising, so I take care of them and me at the same time. Pre-plan my meals for the week.

    Starting weight: 189 (Jan 1, 2021)
    Goal weight: 159
    Current weight: 179.4 (Feb 12)
    Total weight lost: 9.6 pounds

    This week's successes: Kept the needle on my scale moving in the right direction. Good job of keeping my fasting window clean. Getting dangerously close 10 pounds lost this year.

    This week's challenges: I need to find a constructive way to fight off being cold. My tendency has been to wrap up and sit by my heater instead of getting up and moving. I’m going to move more this week.
