    Welcome to everyone just joining!
    I am still going very slow on weight loss, but I'm happy that I haven't GAINED anything - so I'm considering this all still a move in the right direction. As I've said before my biggest goal for this challenge is to maintain my current weight or lose maybe just another 2 pounds. I always struggle to maintain around the holidays when heavy meals and desserts abound.

    HW: 151lbs

    I was able to fit into my "skinny" jeans today! :)

    Height 5'5"
    HW: 153
    SW: 139
    GW: 130

    9/9: 139
    9/17: 138
    9/25: 136.4
    10/4: 136
    10/9: 134

    I started eating LCHF/Keto Sept. 6, 2017 in an effort to curb my carb cravings & shed some excess lbs.
  • I am a day late because I was traveling for the last 4 days. I was nervous but excited to weigh in this morning, because I worked hard on keeping my deficit. My hard work paid off! Some of this loss I believe is water or hormonal from the past couple of weeks.

    SW (9/11): 151.0
    9/18: 150.0
    9/25: 150.4
    10/2: 150.4
    10/10: 148.8
    GW: 145.0

    Keep up the good work everyone! If you're not seeing the loss on the scale, keep at it.

    Goal for the next week. Weight training 3 times and cardio 5 X 30 minutes.

    Im in!

    I don't really need to lose weight, more gain muscle, but I still want to keep myself accountable during this time. I just made cookies this weekend and ate way too many so... I obviously need some accountability :D

    Starting Weight: I was 101 a week ago
    Current Weight: 105 this AM (THOSE COOKIES!!!)
    Goal Weight: .. anywhere from this to 111 if I am gaining muscle. More like my goal is to keep my body fat percentage down which has been fluctuating between 14% and 16% lately.

    And man.. I gotta get on the Christmas present wagon soon.. It's gonna sneak up on me so quick! :#

    Those last 5 are so hard to reach. Circling around 147-152 for a few months. Trying IF and calorie deficit but I agree with someone above the deficit seems almost impossible to reduce further. I will give it a try.
    Thanks for the update on Christmas... :)

    Maybe try playing with your macros. I know some people swear by "calories in calories out," but I find that I can stall with that approach. However, for me, cutting carbs seems to work. Every body is different, and I don't believe in one-size-fits-all diet plans. I will say that I am losing faster doing Keto, than anything else I've tried. (Whole 30 is a close second, and VERY healthy!) I hope you find something that works for you!

    I'm going to get back to intermittent fasting. Lost my way for awhile, but it worked for me in the past. Just have trouble not eating past 8 out of habit.

    Ahh!! Right on track until I took my son and his friend out with a sleepover afterwards. Ate a Kit Kay, some chips and popcorn. Another day gone
