    Happy new year everyone! I’m Athena. I am loving these challenges, they are helping me stay motivated!

    My goal for this month is to start to focus on my physical activity, this is where I struggle the most. I plan to wake up and go to the gym on weekdays every morning for 45 minutes and occasionally do classes in the afternoon. I’ll also continue to push to only eat out on weekends/on holidays. I am going to try to lose 4 pounds each month.

    Highest weight: 165
    End of month goal: 155
    Current weight: 159

    January 1 - 159 (went out)
    January 2 - 159 (went out)
    January 3 - Whoops! (home cooked/ walked 45 minutes)
    January 4 - 157 (went out/ walked, jogged 45 minutes)
    January 5 - 156 (home cooked/ walked 45 min.)
    January 6 - 157 (home cooked/ walked, jogged 45 min.)
    January 7 - 157 (home cooked/ walked 45 min.)
    January 8 - 156 (went out)
    January 9 - 156 (went out)
    January 10 - 157 (home cooked, walked 45 min.).
    January 11 - 157 (home cooked, jogged 45 min)
    January 12 - 157 (home cooked, walked 45 min.)
    January 13 - 157 (home cooked, jogged 45 min.)
    January 14 - 157 (home cooked, walked 45 min.).
    January 15 - 159 (went out)
    January 16 - 157 (went out, Zumba)
    January 17 - 157 (home cooked, jogged/walked 45 min.)

    Alright! Got proper running shoes and managed to maintain even while going out! I plan to push the activity to do a running/jog every day instead of every other day and plan to do Yoga on Tuesday and Zumba on Wednesday. Also going to have smaller breakfasts starting tomorrow. Determined to try to get to 156 this week. Also! The shoes make a huge difference, my feet have already been healing!

    I'm ready to get back to healthy habits and a healthier weight starting tomorrow!

    My goals…

    🌟Lose .5 pounds each week… 26 pounds this year
    🌟Work out 3-5 days a week
    🌟Drink less wine
    🌟Log consistently
    🌟Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌟Move 30 minutes a day

    Highest weight:214.5
    Current weight:214.5
    January Goal Weight: 209


    January 3—214.5 - well - that's a number I never want to see again. Let's do this!
    January 4—213
    January 5— 213.4 - had sushi last night. Hit my exercise goal, plus 10,000 steps and only 1 glass of wine - so I think it's the sodium.
    January 6—212.7 workout done
    January 7— 213.4 - hmm - I see some tweaks I need to make
    January 8— 211.9 - weight loss is weird - yesterday I had too many chips, had pizza for dinner with wine and I lose this - so bizarre!
    January 9—213.4 - there's the pizza! Did better yesterday and got my workout done for today.
    January 10—213.4 - not bad for the first week - down 1.2. Now for some tweaks for this week.
    January 11—211.9
    January 12— 211.9
    January 13— 211.4 - a loss and I've stuck with this for 10 days - taking it one day at a time and reminding myself slow and steady wins the race.
    January 14— 211.2
    January 15—211
    January 16—212.1 - pizza on Friday and burgers last night. All good - got my workout in today.
    January 17—212.1 - I'll take it! That's 2.3 down in 2 weeks - slow and steady!

    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 December 31st): 191.6
    Goal: 186.6 (Five lb Loss)

    01/10.…..194.4…..(Trend Weight 192.1)…..
    01/11.…..192.6…..(Trend Weight 192.2)….. Strange. I ate the exact same food as the day before. Same breakfast, same lack of lunch and the same amount of pizza (leftovers) and this time I lost instead of gained. No difference in TMI and no difference in exercise. Hmph. Come to think of it though, I did push a little more water. I probably drank about 24 oz extra. Not as much as I’d hoped, but there is that. I hope the leftovers don’t catch up to me and wreak havoc again! Dining room getting painted. He’s been working on it a couple of days. It’s looking good and may be completed by today. It’s another temporary project to update things until the full kitchen / diningroom reno.

    01/12.…..192.6…..(Trend Weight 192.2)….. A pretty good day overall although no change on the scale. I’m going to try to make today really count. Feeling pretty strong this A.M.

    01/13.…..192.8…..(Trend Weight 192.3)….. Fluctuation. Travel today for building supplies. Dinner will be out.

    01/14.…..194.0…..(Trend Weight 192.5)….. The travel included Chinese food, lack of water and little movement with plenty of time in the car. I’ll try to make today a good day and push water for sure!

    01/15……194.6…..(Trend Weight 192.7)….. Finished the leftovers, the stocking and apparently everything else in the house! Another restart today. Hope it works this time!

    01/16……193.8…..(Trend Weight 192.8)….. I am happy to see some progress. Kitchen reno is done (for now) and now begins the livingroom painting. Also adding two small walls to keep an open concept but give me small areas for extra cabinets on the dining room side. This will likely take a few weeks but at least I have free access to the kitchen (and meal planning) again! I finally broke down and changed my ticker to the higher weight I’ve had since late Oct before my surgery and the holidays. I was not happy to do it but keeping it real and honest is important!

    01/17.…..194.4…..(Trend Weight 193.0)….. I couldn’t get full yesterday and no TMI today. It’s got to get better tomorrow!

This project will last several weeks. No room. Furniture covered and in the center. No privacy again. However, the dining room turned out nice and the living room will be an even bigger impact! Glad to be getting some of this out of the way during the cold snowy and icy months. I will need some alone time to leave the house to walk when the weather gets better.
