    Female named Donna from the Midwest USA ….. 5’ 5” tall
    145320379.png



    Highest Weight Ever: 253 (2014/2015)
    Original MFP starting Weight on this current journey: 235.0 (Jan 11, 2018)

    Challenge Starting Weight: 174.0
    Challenge Goal Weight: 154.5
    Challenge Ending Weight: TBD

    My Plan: To lose 1.5 pounds per week for 13 weeks (19.5 lbs total) and end at 154.5 on Christmas Eve Morn. Then I want to enjoy my Christmas Eve night with family, wake up on the 25th and listen for Santa’s sleigh bells. I will CAREFULLY enjoy myself between Christmas and New Years and reassess on January 1st and get busy with the final leg of my plan.

    Final Goal: To weigh 145 by Valentine’s day.


    DON’T FORGET TO SCHEDULE YOUR MAMMOGRAM!

    Oct 01 - 174.0 And Away We Go! Good Luck Everyone. I don’t know what happened to the original person starting this challenge but I’m still in if you all are!

    Oct 08 - 174.8

    Oct 15 - 175.4 Oops I did it again.

    Oct 22 - 177.8 Went to DBs to help him after surgery. Enjoyed big city with big food. Calories I controlled pretty well. Carbs got me badly. Next week I will attempt to post in the color red instead of the color green. I will be food prepping today!

    Oct 29 - 177.0 I can’t believe I managed to pull off a small loss. I was up much higher this week after multiple traveling trips. I have gotten rid of the water retention I think, and now I can get down to the business of fat! My Mammogram and doctors appointments at the University Hospital turned out great. They did not detect any breast cancer so I am still in remission. I will see you all on November 5th!


    Nov 05 - 177.2 Lots of travel this week. It won’t be pretty.

    Xmas goal - 78 ish

    I’m in! I just started back on my fitness pal today after a few years of not using g it. I’m aiming for 12 weeks focused to get to my goal weight. Main thing for me is getting enough calories, that’s been an issue and avoiding sugary junk food. So holiday season, laser focused! Let’s do this!

    Oh, the inhumanity! (OK, a bit melodramatic, but couldn’t help it with the upcoming American Thanksgiving holiday and a tip of the hat to the turkey drop by WKRP). I had thought that I may have had a real possibility of posting a loss of a good pound, based on numbers I was seeing throughout the week. I’m holding onto hope because of that! I had not seen that number for years and years and years...
