    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s



    Starting Weight (from Nov 30th): 189.2
    Goal: 184.2 (Five lb Loss)

    **************************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME************************************

    12/01…...188.7…..(Trend Weight 189.5)
    12/02.…..188.2…..(Trend Weight 189.4)
    12/03.…..189.8…..(Trend Weight 189.5)
    12/04.…..188.8…..(Trend Weight 189.4)
    12/05.…..189.4…..(Trend Weight 189.4)
    12/06.…..189.6…..(Trend Weight 189.4)
    12/07.…..190.4…..(Trend Weight 189.5)
    12/08.…..190.4…..(Trend Weight 189.6)….. I’m a hot mess. Now I’ve ran my glucose up and I am feeling like sheer crap on top of it all. I’m making changes today to get to a better place. More paperwork and business for my brother is due today. I don’t even feel like I can raise a pencil to paper! It’s the food choices.

    12/09.…..190.4…..(Trend Weight 189.7)….. Same weight for 3 days in a row but my trend weight is creeping up 0.1 each and every day. I still haven’t made the changes I need to. I am not eating my meals proper, then I’m snacking too much at night turning snacks into meals. Cravings are all over the place. Back and forth from salt to sweet. Glucose numbers still up, even with new meds. I am not even giving them a chance to work. Self-sabotage is putting it mildly. I promise myself everyday that it will change today, and then I begin the tasks for my brother’s death and I either lean on food for comfort, or I get too busy to plan for success. I suppose the first part of success and change is recognition, so here I am standing at the confessional podium. Better planning is next and success (while currently elusive) is mine to take.

    12/10.…..189.8…..(Trend Weight 189.7)….. I went up to the store yesterday and bought some sugar-free Russell Stovers individually wrapped candy. When the sweet cravings hit me in bed, I had 3 pcs. Tonight I will move it to 2 pieces. Cutting out the night time sugar binge seems to have helped the scale. I’m still too much of a mess since the death to really focus as I should, but any change will help at this point. Today I will choose a better breakfast also.

    12/11.…..190.6…..(Trend Weight 189.8)….. Waited too long for dinner due to unexpected company over. Then I overate. Dinner at 11:30 pm.

    12/12.…..192.0…..(Trend Weight 190.0)….. Out to dinner with a friend who helped move out some of my brother’s furniture as we empty the house. Pasta and a shared dessert in the same meal made for a horrible scale reading today.

    12/13.…..192.2…..(Trend Weight 190.2)….. Small fluctuation with no TMI. Travel today for building supplies and product returns won’t help. I’ll not be home until later tonight after dark.
    12/14.…..191.6…..(Trend Weight 190.4)….. The Covid booster hit me hard yesterday while I was out of town. Got home and stayed in bed for 12 full hours. I was lethargic and dizzy. Today it is all gone and was well-worth the tiredness. Nothing wrong with a little extra sleep anyway. Today is hair appointment, then all things Christmas related.

    12/15……190.4…..(Trend Weight 190.4)….. Snacks not so good but meals were on point. Happy to see the scale down by 1.2. I have a lot of catching up to do.

    12/16……189.2…..(Trend Weight 190.3)….. Chocolate cream pie but otherwise meals and quantities were good thus the drop in weight. Yesterday was a very busy day full of appointments and commitments. Fit in a little wrapping and a bit of cleaning. I hope to do more today around the house.

    12/17.…..189.6…..(Trend Weight 190.2)….. Well, I guess I should be happy that the trend weight is still trickling down. It’s giving me a chance I probably don’t deserve. I can do better.


    12/18.…..191.2…..(Trend Weight 190.3)….. I’m disappointed and frustrated as yesterday was a better dietary day than I’ve had in awhile. I also moved a lot chasing a toddler grandson around most of the day. No TMI is likely the reason but it still is so disheartening! Shopping today over 100 miles away each way. Restaurants and car sitting won’t help but there will be walking in the stores.

    12/19.…..191.0…..(Trend Weight 190.4)….. A small drop on the scale after the way I ate yesterday during my travels and city Christmas shopping? I’m sure that lunch and dinner from yesterday (over-abundance) will rear it’s ugly head on the scale in the coming days. It was nice to (mainly) finish my shopping and spend time in the city with my daughter!

    12/20.…..191.2…..(Trend Weight 190.5)….. I attended a viewing and full memorial service yesterday for a friend I’ve known for 20 years. She was 55. She died suddenly after an asthma attack. She used her inhaler, dropped to the ground and never recovered. Such a shock! It was difficult seeing the extreme grief of her children and her husband. This will be a hard one to get over. I say goodbye and good riddance to 2021!

    12/21.…..191.4…..(Trend Weight 190.5)….. I had a full-on binge yesterday of BBQ chips and donuts that I bought at the store when I went to get water. It was so bad that I skipped dinner just to off-set the calories. I feel like death warmed over today. I have none of the energy that good foods would have given me. This is just another example of my food killing me, like a poison because of my relationship with it. I’ve got to do better! I know this was emotional eating. Too many death's this month. But it solves nothing!

    12/22.…..192.2…..(Trend Weight 190.7)…..Pros: Meals were on point. Small & Healthy. Cons: Lost track of time but no TMI again (at least x2). Started baking Christmas cookies. Too much taste testing.

    12/23.…..191.4…..(Trend Weight 190.8)….. Lots of baking yesterday but I limited the taste testing a bit more. TMI helped my lower number on the scale (finally), but I am not liking that trend weight. It appears to have no faith in me when it goes up as my weight is going down on the scale. Oh Ye of Little Faith. I will show it what I’ve got!

    12/24.…..192.4…..(Trend Weight 190.9)….. Not too many holiday snacks and dinner was light but it was very late. Definitely not enough water!

    Hello Everyone!
    I'm Mary 64, 5'4" from Pennsylvania. My goal is to get back down AGAIN to 122 lbs. Kept it off for about 5 years and then got lazy. My body just stores Carbs too easily. I work long hours and exercise on my 3 off days/week, making up for my 4 work days. I started this challenge in November and will continue through December and January. Great group of motivating members! Thank you Jill! My goal is 5 lbs for December. My other goal is 15 lbs for Nov, Dec and Jan. JOIN US!



    🌲December Challenge🌲

    Highest weight: 255 lbs (twice) :-(
    Current December weight:176.2 lbs
    November 1 weight-181.8 lbs
    November goal-5 lbs
    November loss-5.6 lbs :-)
    December goal-5 lbs
    December weight lost so far: -9 lbs :-)
    Nov/Dec/Jan weight loss so far (Goal-15 lbs): -14.6 lbs :-)
    Loss since 9/14/20-87.8 lbs :-)

    December 1-176.2 lbs. Pre logged yesterday for today and Pre logged tomorrow. Stayed within my calories, carbs and water minimum.
    December 2-176.2 lbs Pre logged for tomorrow.
    December 3-175 lbs
    December 4-173.8 lbs! I'm No Longer Obese by BMI charts! I'm overweight now! Even as a RN I don't dwell on BMI. I have always weighed more than what people think. My boys are all the same way. Solid. My one son in the military when he was about 4-6% body fat was Obese on a BMI chart. So...
    I'm wearing size 10 jeans but put on a pair of 8's today and easily zipped them up, but not wearing them because my flabby belly hangs out over bad. Did my Elliptical for 222 minutes for 16.3 miles today.
    December 5-171.8 lbs. Did 224 minutes on my Elliptical for 14.25 miles. I was obviously moving at a slower pace since I didn't get to my usual 15-16 mile range. Thrilled by the swoosh of weight though today!
    December 6-172.8 lbs-Stayed on track so hopefully just my usual uptick before a drop! Worked today, off tomorrow so will be on my elliptical again.
    December 7-171.2 lbs Was on my Elliptical for 250 minutes/18 miles. Had a Nursing conference dinner at a restaurant and figured I would make sure I had more than enough for a calorie deficit. Pre logged today for tomorrow. Had 150 oz of water today.
    December 8-171.2 lbs Thought I would have a drop today but maybe tomorrow.
    December 9-171.2 lbs. :-( Didn't drop yet. 220 minutes on my Elliptical today for 14 miles.
    December 10-172.2 lbs :-( Still no drop. Had stayed on point so it has to be my usual uptick before a drop.
    December 11-172.2 lbs :-( Still no drop again! Getting a bit old. But tomorrow is my official weigh in day for a couple challenges. So.... hopefully tomorrow. Fingers crossed! Going to a work holiday party tonight. Its a Rock N Bowl. Just us no families. To hang out other than at work. Where things are hectic at times with patients. They are having pizza but they also planned some Keto friendly items, like unbreaded chicken for at least 1 other girl and me. I'm also taking some of my own snacks. Hard boiled eggs, cheese and some pecans, just in case. And I ate dinner at home.
    December 12-170.8 lbs Well it's a drop. I was hoping for more than 0.4 lbs, like getting into the 160's as I have been staying on track. But I have met my December goal ALREADY!
    Glad I took my own snacks to my work bowling party last night. We had some much fun, even though the majority of us stunk at the games. I hadn't bowled in probably 20 years at least! They had pizza, BREADED chicken nuggets and french fries. I didn't indulge in it at all. I ate a hardboiled egg, a colby jack string cheese and water.
    Did 242 minutes on my Elliptical today for 17 miles and my fat percentage is coming down on my scale.
    December 13-172.0 :-( Ugh!!!! Again hopefully the usual uptick before a drop because I have stayed on track.
    December 14-169.4 lbs :-) Yessss! Finally into the 160's! But now I can't wait to get into the 150's. I got a later start today. I only did 140 minutes on my elliptical for 11 miles today.
    December 15-170.6 lbs
    December 16-170.6 lbs
    December 17-170.6 lbs- Have been having some very long work days, so logging 15th, 16th and 17th today. Gosh I really dislike my usual uptick after a drop! :-(
    December 18-170.6 lbs :-( Elliptical today 137 minutes for 9.1 miles.
    December 19-169.6 lbs :-) Starting back down again. Elliptical today for 140 minutes for 9.15 miles.
    December 20-171.0 lbs. :-( Ugh!
    December 21-168.2 lbs! Yippee! :-) Hopefully my next "usual uptick" won't go into the 170's again. I really dislike that uptick before a drop and going into the upper 10 lbs is worse than staying in the one I have achieved.(160 range is better than the 170's). Didn't do my Elliptical this AM. I had a hair appointment. (A girl has her priorities!) And hopefully finishing my Christmas shopping after it. Maybe will get to it later tonight. I'm off tomorrow and plan to do my baking, pies and Pumpkin rolls, as I'm working Thursday and Friday.
    December 22-168.2 lbs I was out Christmas shopping yesterday, after my hair appointment, till 10:30 PM! I didn't eat since 10 AM but drank water. I was barely hungry. Ate meat and veggie when I got home and then some pumpkin custard made with erythritol, I made a few days ago. Helped me to not actually eat my pumpkie pie. Didn't get on the elliptical last PM but I did get on today. 150 minutes for 10.1 miles. Today is my baking day, as I work Thursday and Friday.

    December 23-167.2 lbs

    December 17 - 189.2 (Smiling to be back in the 180's! Today was a workday that I thought would be quiet and ended up zany! I saw a lot of my Mom today too, got my Peloton ride in at lunch, and am happy the weekend is here! Enjoy it all.)
    December 18 - 187.4 (Started my morning with an FTP test on the Peloton and was pleased with my improved fitness level. It's lovely to get my exercise out of the way early... not that I don't have more movement planned, but the hard stuff is done!)
    December 19 - 187.4 (Had a nice day yesterday, managed to get in a lot of walking with some nicer weather here yesterday. Watched some Christmas movies. Lots to get done again today!)
    December 20 - 188.2 (Fourth day in a row weighing in the 180's... had a streak like this last week before bouncing up again so hoping to make tomorrow five! Yesterday my husband and I made homemade cabbage rolls.. lots of steps and time on my feet.)
    December 21 - 188.6 (Met my goal of a longer streak in the 180's than last week. Woo hoo! Had an unplanned dinner out yesterday but I kept it reasonable and did a bit more exercise at night to off-set it.)
    December 22 - 186.2 (Fun dinner out with friends last night at a restaurant that has turned into a Christmas themed pop-up restaurant for the month of December. Pre-selected my drink and food before I got there so I was able to stay on track.)
    December 23 - 187.8 (Happy to be holding steadily in the 180's. Good training ride on the bike yesterday and a fun dinner with friends. The two hard days for me food wise will be the 24th and 25th. Goal still remains to enter 2022 in the 180's so I should be on track for that no matter what!)
    December 24 - 189.2 (Well folks, the holidays are upon us! Take time with loved ones and remember what is important.... the company of those you love! And being gentle with ourselves around small breaks for the habits we're employing most of the year.)
    December 25 - 189.2 (Merry Christmas! I am on call for work so I'm up early to get that done with and then I can enjoy the day with my family. Hope you enjoy yours!)

    My name is Donna. I am 5’ 5” tall, 61 years old and from the Midwest USA. In 2016 I weighed 253 lbs. I am on a journey of health and to get back to the real me.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s



    Starting Weight (from Nov 30th): 189.2
    Goal: 184.2 (Five lb Loss)

    **************************************ONE DAY, ONE STEP, ONE DECISION AT A TIME************************************

    12/01…...188.7…..(Trend Weight 189.5)
    12/02.…..188.2…..(Trend Weight 189.4)
    12/03.…..189.8…..(Trend Weight 189.5)
    12/04.…..188.8…..(Trend Weight 189.4)
    12/05.…..189.4…..(Trend Weight 189.4)
    12/06.…..189.6…..(Trend Weight 189.4)
    12/07.…..190.4…..(Trend Weight 189.5)
    12/08.…..190.4…..(Trend Weight 189.6)….. I’m a hot mess. Now I’ve ran my glucose up and I am feeling like sheer crap on top of it all. I’m making changes today to get to a better place. More paperwork and business for my brother is due today. I don’t even feel like I can raise a pencil to paper! It’s the food choices.

    12/09.…..190.4…..(Trend Weight 189.7)….. Same weight for 3 days in a row but my trend weight is creeping up 0.1 each and every day. I still haven’t made the changes I need to. I am not eating my meals proper, then I’m snacking too much at night turning snacks into meals. Cravings are all over the place. Back and forth from salt to sweet. Glucose numbers still up, even with new meds. I am not even giving them a chance to work. Self-sabotage is putting it mildly. I promise myself everyday that it will change today, and then I begin the tasks for my brother’s death and I either lean on food for comfort, or I get too busy to plan for success. I suppose the first part of success and change is recognition, so here I am standing at the confessional podium. Better planning is next and success (while currently elusive) is mine to take.

    12/10.…..189.8…..(Trend Weight 189.7)….. I went up to the store yesterday and bought some sugar-free Russell Stovers individually wrapped candy. When the sweet cravings hit me in bed, I had 3 pcs. Tonight I will move it to 2 pieces. Cutting out the night time sugar binge seems to have helped the scale. I’m still too much of a mess since the death to really focus as I should, but any change will help at this point. Today I will choose a better breakfast also.

    12/11.…..190.6…..(Trend Weight 189.8)….. Waited too long for dinner due to unexpected company over. Then I overate. Dinner at 11:30 pm.

    12/12.…..192.0…..(Trend Weight 190.0)….. Out to dinner with a friend who helped move out some of my brother’s furniture as we empty the house. Pasta and a shared dessert in the same meal made for a horrible scale reading today.

    12/13.…..192.2…..(Trend Weight 190.2)….. Small fluctuation with no TMI. Travel today for building supplies and product returns won’t help. I’ll not be home until later tonight after dark.
    12/14.…..191.6…..(Trend Weight 190.4)….. The Covid booster hit me hard yesterday while I was out of town. Got home and stayed in bed for 12 full hours. I was lethargic and dizzy. Today it is all gone and was well-worth the tiredness. Nothing wrong with a little extra sleep anyway. Today is hair appointment, then all things Christmas related.

    12/15……190.4…..(Trend Weight 190.4)….. Snacks not so good but meals were on point. Happy to see the scale down by 1.2. I have a lot of catching up to do.

    12/16……189.2…..(Trend Weight 190.3)….. Chocolate cream pie but otherwise meals and quantities were good thus the drop in weight. Yesterday was a very busy day full of appointments and commitments. Fit in a little wrapping and a bit of cleaning. I hope to do more today around the house.

    12/17.…..189.6…..(Trend Weight 190.2)….. Well, I guess I should be happy that the trend weight is still trickling down. It’s giving me a chance I probably don’t deserve. I can do better.


    12/18.…..191.2…..(Trend Weight 190.3)….. I’m disappointed and frustrated as yesterday was a better dietary day than I’ve had in awhile. I also moved a lot chasing a toddler grandson around most of the day. No TMI is likely the reason but it still is so disheartening! Shopping today over 100 miles away each way. Restaurants and car sitting won’t help but there will be walking in the stores.

    12/19.…..191.0…..(Trend Weight 190.4)….. A small drop on the scale after the way I ate yesterday during my travels and city Christmas shopping? I’m sure that lunch and dinner from yesterday (over-abundance) will rear it’s ugly head on the scale in the coming days. It was nice to (mainly) finish my shopping and spend time in the city with my daughter!

    12/20.…..191.2…..(Trend Weight 190.5)….. I attended a viewing and full memorial service yesterday for a friend I’ve known for 20 years. She was 55. She died suddenly after an asthma attack. She used her inhaler, dropped to the ground and never recovered. Such a shock! It was difficult seeing the extreme grief of her children and her husband. This will be a hard one to get over. I say goodbye and good riddance to 2021!

    12/21.…..191.4…..(Trend Weight 190.5)….. I had a full-on binge yesterday of BBQ chips and donuts that I bought at the store when I went to get water. It was so bad that I skipped dinner just to off-set the calories. I feel like death warmed over today. I have none of the energy that good foods would have given me. This is just another example of my food killing me, like a poison because of my relationship with it. I’ve got to do better! I know this was emotional eating. Too many death's this month. But it solves nothing!

    12/22.…..192.2…..(Trend Weight 190.7)…..Pros: Meals were on point. Small & Healthy. Cons: Lost track of time but no TMI again (at least x2). Started baking Christmas cookies. Too much taste testing.

    12/23.…..191.4…..(Trend Weight 190.8)….. Lots of baking yesterday but I limited the taste testing a bit more. TMI helped my lower number on the scale (finally), but I am not liking that trend weight. It appears to have no faith in me when it goes up as my weight is going down on the scale. Oh Ye of Little Faith. I will show it what I’ve got!

    12/24.…..192.4…..(Trend Weight 190.9)….. Not too many holiday snacks and dinner was light but it was very late. Definitely not enough water!

    12/25.…..192.0…..(Trend Weight 190.1)….. Slightly better on the scale but weight is still trending up which is pretty scary. Big family dinner is tomorrow. Too much grazing yesterday and today so far. I must stick to meals or it will be a helluva binge tonight!


    12/26.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    12/27.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……
    12/28.…..xxxxx…..(Trend Weight xxxxx)……

    🌲December Challenge🌲

    Hello members. My name is Mary, 61 years old and my driver's license says 5'7" but I just measured myself and 5' 5 1/4 inches. I wanted to say thanks for the support this group has given to me. I enjoy the sharing of updates as we face our challenges in attaining a healthier version of ourselves.

    Goal Weight 179 lbs 4lbs to lose

    Highest weight: 204
    Current weight: 183
    December weight lost so far: 2.5 lbs⬇️

    December 1 183lbs
    My weekly weigh-in is Wednesday. No movement from yesterday.

    December 8 182 lbs ⬇️
    This has been my most consistent month so far. I prefer the consistency. I have 3 lbs to lose to reach my December goal. I really think we all should applaud the fact that we are on this journey to our healthier version of ourselves in the fun crazy month of December and not forget in a pandemic. 👏👏👏

    December 15 180 lbs
    So one pound to go to hit my December goal but the next 2 weeks will be filled with snacking and Christmas cheer temptations. My 7 day average weight it 182.2 lbs. I remind myself that because of the awareness that stepping on the scale today was a positive but not constant. Again love this group for the support.

    December 22 181 lbs
    Wednesday regular weigh-in. Though I am a 1lb more than last Wednesday. My weekly average went down to 180.9 lbs. Feeling pretty good that my weight is constant. 2 more pounds to lose.
    December 23 181lbs
    December 24 181lbs
    December 25 180.5 lbs⬇️

    Hello Everyone!
    I'm Mary 64, 5'4" from Pennsylvania. My goal is to get back down AGAIN to 122 lbs. Kept it off for about 5 years and then got lazy. My body just stores Carbs too easily. I work long hours and exercise on my 3 off days/week, making up for my 4 work days. I started this challenge in November and will continue through December and January. Great group of motivating members! Thank you Jill! My goal is 5 lbs for December. My other goal is 15 lbs for Nov, Dec and Jan. JOIN US!



    🌲December Challenge🌲

    Highest weight: 255 lbs (twice) :-(
    Current December weight:176.2 lbs
    November 1 weight-181.8 lbs
    November goal-5 lbs
    November loss-5.6 lbs :-)
    December goal-5 lbs
    December weight lost so far: -9 lbs :-)
    Nov/Dec/Jan weight loss so far (Goal-15 lbs): -14.6 lbs :-)
    Loss since 9/14/20-87.8 lbs :-)

    December 1-176.2 lbs. Pre logged yesterday for today and Pre logged tomorrow. Stayed within my calories, carbs and water minimum.
    December 2-176.2 lbs Pre logged for tomorrow.
    December 3-175 lbs
    December 4-173.8 lbs! I'm No Longer Obese by BMI charts! I'm overweight now! Even as a RN I don't dwell on BMI. I have always weighed more than what people think. My boys are all the same way. Solid. My one son in the military when he was about 4-6% body fat was Obese on a BMI chart. So...
    I'm wearing size 10 jeans but put on a pair of 8's today and easily zipped them up, but not wearing them because my flabby belly hangs out over bad. Did my Elliptical for 222 minutes for 16.3 miles today.
    December 5-171.8 lbs. Did 224 minutes on my Elliptical for 14.25 miles. I was obviously moving at a slower pace since I didn't get to my usual 15-16 mile range. Thrilled by the swoosh of weight though today!
    December 6-172.8 lbs-Stayed on track so hopefully just my usual uptick before a drop! Worked today, off tomorrow so will be on my elliptical again.
    December 7-171.2 lbs Was on my Elliptical for 250 minutes/18 miles. Had a Nursing conference dinner at a restaurant and figured I would make sure I had more than enough for a calorie deficit. Pre logged today for tomorrow. Had 150 oz of water today.
    December 8-171.2 lbs Thought I would have a drop today but maybe tomorrow.
    December 9-171.2 lbs. :-( Didn't drop yet. 220 minutes on my Elliptical today for 14 miles.
    December 10-172.2 lbs :-( Still no drop. Had stayed on point so it has to be my usual uptick before a drop.
    December 11-172.2 lbs :-( Still no drop again! Getting a bit old. But tomorrow is my official weigh in day for a couple challenges. So.... hopefully tomorrow. Fingers crossed! Going to a work holiday party tonight. Its a Rock N Bowl. Just us no families. To hang out other than at work. Where things are hectic at times with patients. They are having pizza but they also planned some Keto friendly items, like unbreaded chicken for at least 1 other girl and me. I'm also taking some of my own snacks. Hard boiled eggs, cheese and some pecans, just in case. And I ate dinner at home.
    December 12-170.8 lbs Well it's a drop. I was hoping for more than 0.4 lbs, like getting into the 160's as I have been staying on track. But I have met my December goal ALREADY!
    Glad I took my own snacks to my work bowling party last night. We had some much fun, even though the majority of us stunk at the games. I hadn't bowled in probably 20 years at least! They had pizza, BREADED chicken nuggets and french fries. I didn't indulge in it at all. I ate a hardboiled egg, a colby jack string cheese and water.
    Did 242 minutes on my Elliptical today for 17 miles and my fat percentage is coming down on my scale.
    December 13-172.0 :-( Ugh!!!! Again hopefully the usual uptick before a drop because I have stayed on track.
    December 14-169.4 lbs :-) Yessss! Finally into the 160's! But now I can't wait to get into the 150's. I got a later start today. I only did 140 minutes on my elliptical for 11 miles today.
    December 15-170.6 lbs
    December 16-170.6 lbs
    December 17-170.6 lbs- Have been having some very long work days, so logging 15th, 16th and 17th today. Gosh I really dislike my usual uptick after a drop! :-(
    December 18-170.6 lbs :-( Elliptical today 137 minutes for 9.1 miles.
    December 19-169.6 lbs :-) Starting back down again. Elliptical today for 140 minutes for 9.15 miles.
    December 20-171.0 lbs. :-( Ugh!
    December 21-168.2 lbs! Yippee! :-) Hopefully my next "usual uptick" won't go into the 170's again. I really dislike that uptick before a drop and going into the upper 10 lbs is worse than staying in the one I have achieved.(160 range is better than the 170's). Didn't do my Elliptical this AM. I had a hair appointment. (A girl has her priorities!) And hopefully finishing my Christmas shopping after it. Maybe will get to it later tonight. I'm off tomorrow and plan to do my baking, pies and Pumpkin rolls, as I'm working Thursday and Friday.
    December 22-168.2 lbs I was out Christmas shopping yesterday, after my hair appointment, till 10:30 PM! I didn't eat since 10 AM but drank water. I was barely hungry. Ate meat and veggie when I got home and then some pumpkin custard made with erythritol, I made a few days ago. Helped me to not actually eat my pumpkie pie. Didn't get on the elliptical last PM but I did get on today. 150 minutes for 10.1 miles. Today is my baking day, as I work Thursday and Friday.
    December 23-167.2 lbs
    December 24-167.2 lbs

    December 25-167.2 lbs I behaved today, prime rib, roasted broccoli, cauliflower, pepper medley and spring mix salad with strawberries, feta and nuts with no dressing. Then a piece of pumpkin cheesecake. Stayed within my calories. Did 180 minutes on my Elliptical this AM for 11.3 miles.

My stretch goal by New Years Eve is 200 pounds… but I’ll be happy to see 205. Gonna push through this. Making veggie taco soup for dinner tonight. Meal planning and drinking lots of water helps so much! Happy Tuesday! 😁
