2019 Lose 52 Pounds in 52 Weeks Challenge



  • Please add me too! I’ve been struggling to lose weight and keep it off but thankfully haven’t ballooned up to my previous high weight of 232 from 2 years ago. I’m following Fast 800, Michael Mosley’s plan to control blood sugar.

    Starting weight: 213 12/26
    Goal weight: 160
    Current weight: 206
    Total weight lost: 7
    This week's successes: Starting to exercise again. 4 days down!
    This week's challenges: Adjusting to low sugar/carb diet but keeping to planned meals.

    This year I’d like to slow down, be mindful and take the time needed to get healthy and fit.
