    2 lbs down, total of 12 since we started this. S-l-o-w progress, but still it’s progress. 7 weeks to go, am determined to keep moving forward.

    Good morning!
    Oh wow you are doing so great!
    I think one of the reasons it's slow is because it's winter time. The body is designed to store more fat to keep us warm the colder it gets. It's not trying to let you take out the fat easily at this time.
    In summer it's hot so more sweating to cool down.
    But you are doing really great! Keep it up!

    Thanks everyone for being part of this challenge. You are an inspiration to me! This is my first time and I can't say enough about how the weekly weigh in has helped me focus and be accountable. I am not sure I will hit the 30 pounds by Christmas as I'm averaging a pound a week. I will be thrilled if I can arrive in "Onederland"!

    I agree! It has been motivating to me to be held accountable each Monday. I'd love to do another of these when this one is done, if anyone else is interested!

    Sorry, trying to respond to specific post, but the copy/paste thing keeps screwing up.
    Anyway, to Kakramme I just wanted to agree how helpful this site is and I, too, would be interested in continuing beyond the holiday. But for now & the next 6 weeks, I need to refocus my efforts...what works for me: planning, prep, portion size. This is typically a bad 2 month period, when actually the holidays are only 2 days!!!

    Well gang, next week will be challenging for sure. Is anyone going to health up their holiday meal?

    Back after 2 weeks away and gained 2 lbs. Slacked off on tracking & planning and now paying the price. So annoyed w/ myself. Keep going down a bit & up a little. Only 10 lb total loss so far. And now it’s Thanksgiving week....☹️

    No loss this week. :/
    We moved to a new place on Wednesday, and admittedly I went over my calories a couple days.
    Getting a little worried I won't hit the 30 lbs by Christmas, since I still have 8.8 to go...

    We can do it! I've been struggling with some personal issues and man oh man, those bad habits come back! I've GOT to get back to it!!! I'm not going to let this holiday be the beginning of my backslide/weight gain!!
