  • Only a month now.. but I’m in. I’d like to lose 10lb by Christmas. 🎄

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

    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.


    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.
    Nov 12 - 177.6 Okay, I warned everyone that it wouldn’t be pretty. I travelled 5 days this week and hit over 180 pounds! Getting back down to this by weigh-in day was a hard earned miracle. I am back home in my “safety zone” for a few days so it is slowily coming off as I stick to plan and drink debloating water. I hope everyone will have a great week!

    Nov 19 - 178.6 Weight back up from traveling. Restaurant foods and their sodium kill me, but not my spirit! I will be doing lots of travel during all the holidays as I live so far from civilization and being in the cities is like putting a kid in a candy store. I continue to practice restraint.

    Nov 26 - 180.4 Our family feast for Thanksgiving was held yesterday (Sunday). No weigh in today was just not good. Though the meal was carby and the dessert was super sweet (pecan pie), I found that I ate less than I did in the olden holiday dinners. This upcoming week will be very on point. Even restrictive. I’ve got to pull this puppy in before it gets too far behind me and bites me in the butt.

    Oct 1- 122.6
    Oct 8- 121.8
    Oct 15- 124.6
    Oct 22 - 124.8
    I appear to be going backwards. Not surprising, since I went to a food festival yesterday.... Gotta remind myself that just because it's a "special occasion" or whatever excuse I want to use, doesn't mean I have to shove food into my pie hole like the Apocalypse is coming. This time of year has tons of "special occasions" and that mindset is not going to help matters.

    Oct 29 - 120.4 I am not under any delusions that I've actually lost 4 lbs in a week. The previous number was an early-morning weigh-in after an evening of, if not exactly gluttony, certainly eating with abandon. My weight tends to fluctuate a lot, (in fact I'm up a pound and a half today from Monday's weigh in), so I just keep reminding myself to look at the trend rather than individual days' numbers. That's why I like challenges like this, so it keeps me looking at longer-term results rather than being disappointed with day-to-day fluctuations.

    Nov 05 - 123.8 Still fluctuating like mad, but at least I'm down a pound from the previous weeks of mid-October. Hopefully it will be steadier now, but my will power this time of year is nil, and the holiday treats are already out and about! It also doesn't help that today is national donut day and my boss brought some in to celebrate!

    Nov 12 - 124 Ugh. Some bad decisions this past week that I had hoped the weekend of not overdoing it would balance out. Alas, no. As frustrating as it is, it's good for me to see this so I can remind myself that my actions have consequences!

    Nov 19 - 121.6 Another big fluctuation, this time in the right direction, but I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I haven't been feeling well and only warm fluids feel good on a sore throat. I've been trying to be really good with staying on track though, so hopefully it won't bounce back in the other direction once I'm feeling better.

    Nov 26 - 123.6 Well, poop. I know Thanksgiving was this week, but I slipped back into old habits/thinking, like "Well, I've already eaten a ton, so I might as well eat more..." That's always gotten me in trouble. I thought being sick would curb my appetite a bit, but nope. Which is actually fine, since I know we need nutrients to heal, etc. But it still sucks to see that I'm at a heavier weight than when I started. Time to buckle down...

    26 Oct - 81.8kg 19% BF

    16 Nov - 82.6kg 18.3%BF - missed Friday weigh in so took it Monday morning. No gym and out drinking and eating garbage Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I'm paying for it now. We shall see how permanent the damage is on Friday 23rd.
    23 Nov - 80.9Kg 18.1% BF - worked like a Trojan in the gym to make up for last week. A few double sessions of resistance and cardio pulled it round.
    30 Nov - 80.9kg 16.9% BF - diet went a bit south over the of 24th/25th. A couple of meals out but no alcohol. Tried to up my water intake to 2.5l a day. Had a few bad snacks in the week at work which I slightly regret now. Lowest BF I've recorded so I need to kick on now and get it lower.

    Feeling positive! I started a new job, very active job in which I'm easily getting 11,000 steps in a day with lots of lifting. Only working two days a week right now, but will be more as we get closer to Christmas.
