    1st November: 146
    8th November: 144
    15th November: 142.4

    29th November: 142.8
    1st December:

    Weight lost/gained this week: +0.4
    Weight lost/gained this month: -3.2

    Successes/struggles this week: I wasn't able to weigh myself last week because I was away at a convention. I'm actually surprised I'm so low even though I've still gained 0.4, because I've really been overeating a lot these past few days. I'm English, so no Thanksgiving to worry about, though. I've just got to keep it under control so I stay this month's goal weight on 1st December. I really, really want to be at my ultimate goal weight (140) by Christmas!

    1st December:

    Weight lost/gained this week: +.5 (.23kgs)
    Weight lost/gained this month: -8.5 lbs (3.8)

    Successes/struggles this week:

    Week 1: Good start to month but afraid it won't last. Currently on travel visiting friends and doing all those things you do when out having fun. Nonetheless, cutting back on a few things hoping that will keep the weight in check. Good practice for those future maintenance days I guess.

    Week 2: Darn good this week considering more travel to see friends then on the return family get togethers as well. Had to make up for the extra food and wine/beer intake with additional walking plus a cut back in calorie intake on days between events. Hope to break the 180 lbs barrier before the end November. We'll see with Thanksgiving in the mix.

    Week 3: Still moving down with a 3.5lbs loss. Glad to see that and also break that 180lbs barrier. Increased my exercise a little bit to compensate for last weeks extravagance and that probably helped. All bets off on Thanksgiving but will make up for it down.

    Week 4: Hit my goal for this month so that is good. .5 gain not bad considering holiday eating etc.

    Successes/struggles this week:
    Thanksgiving portions and too many restaurant visits. I've really tried to cut back on those but I couldn't skip out on family obligations. I'm really gonna try for a couple of workout sessions these last two days of November, but I'll be happy no matter what with the amount I've lost so far.

    Weight lost/gained this week: -2

    Successes/struggles this week: Was pleased to hit my goal in two weeks and the rest of November loss will help to offset Christmas. First visit to a bar this month yesterday but managed to get away with just 2 glasses of soda and lime. 29days off the booze with one to go but, as I rarely drink during the week I suspect I will manage until Friday so might even have another pound to add to the Christmas fund

    Surprisingly reached goal

    The beginning of the week I was constantly hungry and unsatified. But over the weekend I lost my appetite. Didn't do much exercise wise, but glad that I reached goal.

    Purchased an activity tracker to help me out for the rest of the way and then (HOPEFULLY) through maintenance.

    Well done everyone.

    See you all in December!

    Successes/struggles this week: I'm pretty good at sticking to good food but I'm so lazy i need to excersise!
    It was tricky this week. I am doing the Christmas weight loss challenge where you try and lose 10 to 15lb by Christmas. I am finding this a huge motivator and I've lost 8.8lb already. It is getting harder as the events are stacking up. Any weight loss is good this time of year and if you put on a few pounds it's not the end of the world.
