    I'm Jacquie - 59 years old from Canada. My goal is to lose the 15 lbs that have crept back on over the past two years. I'm looking forward to being accountable each day to help get back on track. I enjoy working out so didn't add any exercise goals but want to work on logging consistently and accurately and staying within my calorie goal each day.

    2022 goals:

    ⚫️Lose .5 pounds each week
    ⚫️Reach my goal weight of 130 lbs

    Daily Goals:

    ♥️Plan my meals and snacks each day
    ♥️Log consistently and accurately
    ♥️Eat within my calorie goal
    ♥️Avoid mindless snacking

    Highest weight: 170 lbs
    Current weight: 145.6 lbs

    February 1— 145.6
    February 2 - 144.4
    February 3 - 144.6
    February 4 - 144.8
    February 5 - 143.0 (???-think maybe from dehydration or because I ate dinner early yesterday)
    February 6 - 143.4 (Yeah! Stayed down in 143s!)
    February 7 - 144.6 (Sigh... didn't last! But take out Chinese food with friends yesterday was fun! And I felt good about the amounts I ate - even if it doesn't show up on the scale)
    February 8 - 143.6 (Yeah!)
    February 9 - 142.6
    February 10 - 143.0
    February 11 - 142.8
    February 12 - 143.0
    February 13 - 143.4
    February 14 - 143.4
    February 15 - Overslept and totally forgot to weigh myself.
    February 16 - Twice!!! Couldn't believe I did it a second time!
    February 17 - 142.6
    February 18 - 141.8
    February 19 - 143.2 (Get together with friends last night - lots of late night snacking)
    February 20 - 142.8
    February 21 - 143.2
    February 22 - 143.6
    February 23 - 142.2
    February 24 - 142.2
    February 25 - 141.8
    February 26 - 142.0
    February 27 - 143.6 (Had a huge workout day yesterday due to a special one day event - so hopefully this is the result of tired muscles)
    February 28 - 143.6 (Ugh... guess it wasn't just the workout as I took yesterday off from all activity. Sigh...)

    Total loss for month - 2 lbs. Happy with the way the month went overall - would have liked to have ended it better but still happy to be down 2 lbs. On to March. (Sorry for the late posting - got home last night and went straight to bed and totally forgot to post).

    Hello Everyone from before and Newbies!
    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 have continued on monthly. Great group of motivating members! Thank you Jill! My goal is 5 lbs for February. Welcome back everyone! JOIN US!

    Current weight: 156 lbs
    Up to date loss so far: 100 lbs/133 lb goal
    February weight lost so far: 2.4 lbs

    February 1—157.4 lbs
    February 2—157.4 lbs
    February 3—159.4 lbs. I had too many Carbs yesterday and went over calories by a couple hundred. It was a co-workers birthday celebration and I had a piece of the chocolate cheesecake I got for her. Today 1 did 210 minutes on my Elliptical for 14.6 miles. A bit shorter today as I have someone I need to meet up with. May do a bit more later on. And I did another 120 minutes for 8.5 miles. So the day was 5 1/2 hours for 23.1 miles.
    February 4—158.4 lbs
    February 5—157.4 lbs
    February 6—158.4 lbs Probably from eating my dinner so late after getting off work. :-( Did 190 minutes on my Elliptical today.
    February 7—159.4 lbs Ate too may Carbs last pm.
    February 8—159.4 lbs :-( Did 280 minutes on the Elliptical for 18.14 miles
    February 9—159.8 lbs
    February 10-157.6 lbs
    February 11-156.4 lbs
    February 12-156.4 lbs. Did 300 minutes on my Elliptical today for 18.5 miles. Been crazy long days at work on 2/9-2/11. 15-18 hour days!! Come home, shower and go to bed and backup at 5 AM and do it all over again. I really needed this weekend off! Got a set of new scrubs on Sunday 2/6. Size SMALL! Others I ordered online and they came this past Thursday. Started with 2XL to LARGE and now SMALL! Only 1.4 lbs away from the 100 lb weight loss mark.
    February 13-156.4 lbs. Did my Elliptical 200 minutes for 13.19 miles.
    February 14- 156.4 lbs.
    February 15- 156.4 lbs Same weight for 5 days Good thing too because I ate some carbs yesterday that I shouldn't have. Wasn't even hungry and they weren't even worth the calories/carbs. (People brought in sweets for Valentine's Day) And afterwards I felt mentally horrible for doing it! So I did my Elliptical today for 301 minutes for 20.02 miles. Just had to get the 20 mile mark!
    February 16- 156.4 lbs Still same weight the sixth day. :-(
    February 17- 155.4 lbs! New low and 99.6 lbs off! Just this close __ to the hundred mark! My day off but no exercise today. My sister is in the hospital 2 hours away from me. And being the nurse in the family, it is serious and I went to decipher what is going on and back as I work Friday and Saturday.
    February 18-155.4 lbs
    February 19-156.4 lbs
    February 20-157.6 lbs Not good, off the rails a bit. Did 310 minutes on my Elliptical today for 20.16 miles. I turned to unnecessary food.
    February 21-158.6 lbs
    February 22-159.4 lbs. My sister passed away yesterday morning. I'm glad she didn't linger on and on.
    February 23-160.6 lbs :-(
    February 24-156.6 lbs Have 6 days off. Planning to get some exercise in each day. Maybe twice a days. So far today's Elliptical 180 minutes for 11.56 miles.
    February 25-155 lbs!!!! :-) FINALLY!!!! 100 lbs lost! 200 minutes on my Elliptical for 13.65 miles. Did another 100 minutes later in the evening for 7 miles.
    February 26-155 lbs. So far 200 minutes on my Elliptical, for 13 miles. Planning on another 100 minutes session later today after babysitting 2 of my grandchildren this afternoon. Did a total of 326 minutes, for the day, on my Elliptical for 23 miles.
    February 27-156 lbs. Don't understand this with all the extra exercise the last few days! My calories were always way under daily too. Did 201 minutes on my Elliptical this AM for 13.6 miles. Plan to do another session later today.
    February 28-155 lbs Did 2 Elliptical sessions today (211 minutes/16.63 miles & 113 minutes/9 miles) total 324 minutes for 25.63 miles. I'm a bit legalistic. I use my 3/1/22 AM weight as my end weight for February, since it's a reflection of what I did today.

    March 1-155 lbs, didn't matter being legalistic this month.

    @ashleycarole86 Thanks Ashley. Sometimes I have a hard time finding the new challenges on the website. Links help bunches!
