    Stats: 29yo/F/5'5"
    OSW: 4/19: 212.6
    CSW 12/28: 174.6
    CGW #1: 1/7/19: 170* I made this goal months ago and although it appears I might be a bit late to achieve it, I want to keep the goal as planned for accountability
    CGW #2: 3/22/19: 160
    UGW: 4/19/19: 150* same as above note

    12/28 - 174.6 - holiday gain is coming down a bit
    1/4 - 176.4 - Aaaaaand holiday gain is back. That's okay, finding my balance yet again!
    1/11 - 174.0 - Hooray! Really committed to it again this week. Did a "no spend" and was successful! It really helped keep me on track.
    2/2 - 176.8 - salty dinner last night but honestly im happy to be in tbe 170s still after a hiatus!
    2/8 - 178.8 - super bowl and stress eating. Good news is my wedding dress arrived and I didn't need a single alteration, not even a hem! Fit like a glove and im so happy
    3/6 - 184.4 - Whoops, One month later and 5.5 pounds more dangit. Been on a steady incline. Mostly due to stress eating. Getting back to it, yet again. But that's whats different this time. I keep trying again, no matter how many times I trip!
    3/19 - 184.2 - I was down a bit earlier this week around 182. I just started a second job, retail, so I'm already getting an additional 1500 steps per day. My eating has been much better, my habits revived, so I'll keep pressing on!

    My name is Tish
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 177.2
    Challenge Goal Weight ~167 - 1/2 pound per week
    November 20, 2018 ~ 177.2 - 42 lbs left to reach my ultimate goal. It was 40 lbs on Nov. 9th when 175 appeared, then was rudely replaced by 177. Lol. This number loves me.
    11/27 ~ 178.8 - Been doing everything I should not the last 5 days; eating late in the day (8pm) eating bread, no electrolytes. One last croissant beckoning me today😊 and hopefully
    it's over.
    11/30 - 178.2 - Lol. Looks like I lost weight. Not. I prefer Wednesday's weight, 174.8😅 but obviously not that much since I ate pretzels last night. Keto carb havoc!
    December 4 - 😒 178.8 - That's rough , but better than yesterday. I think I should post daily weights for December.
    12/11 - 176.6 - Forgot it was weigh in day. By no means was this a linear loss. I was December 4 weight again yesterday!
    12/14 - 175.4 - Gotta post my own good report. I almost don't believe it. I was this weight once or twice during my traverse up and down the 170's since September! Praying it continues downward. I'm more than ready to be OUT of this decade! Doing EVERY THING RIGHT.
    12/18 - 176.2 - My mac and cheese😁
    12/25 - 174.8 - Eating carbs, up and down a smaller range of weights this past week.
    12/31 - 175.8
    January 1, 2019 - 178 😦
    1/3 - 175.8 - Knee is behaving somewhat better and I exercised for the first time in a week yesterday. Found a few different rehab exercises online for knee and shoulders. I will include them in my strength and stretch workouts.
    1/4 - 177.6 - Weight is up from late day start for everything, exercise, eating, bedtime. Not feeling my best yesterday or today for that matter. Got a nice workout in yesterday, not up to my standards, lol, but my standards are going to have to be altered until I can gain my muscle strength back.

    2/15 - 173.8

    2/19 - 175 - Higher carb count yesterday. I ate 2ozs of cashews, which is a lot. I think maybe, I can't eat cashews. I don't digest them well. Out all day and had a late dinner. My one year marker for keto was today and my gift was...

    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 155

    11/27~ 178 (Somehow I dropped 6lbs in two weeks. No idea how that happened!)
    December 4~ 176.6 (So annoyed. Definitely should be lower. I’ve been so good about my calories)
    12/11~ 172.8 (HECK YEAH BOIS)
    12/18~ 170.6 (Only mad because I weighed in .4lbs lower the last two days, but also I have the world's most obnoxious cold right now so maybe that's part of it I DUNNO)
    12/26~ 169.0 (A day late and SO WORTH IT. Had a great Christmas and I'm pretty happy with today's weigh in!)
    January 2, 2019~ 169.0 (A day late again. I also forgot to post this, and now I'm actually up .4 from this. 2019 starting out rough.)
    1/10~ 167.8 (Hopefully this is my last time being late. I'm back home and ready to go bois.)

    2/26~ 164.6 (So I've been hiding for weeks now. I've been trapped at 165 pretty much since mid-January. Haven't given up though, so it's time to quit hiding!)
    March 5~ 163.6 (NEW LOW! Reeeeally hoping I can keep going this time. I don't mind losing slower than before, I JUST WANT MOVEMENT.)
    3/12~ 162.2 (I just realized I never updated my goal. Going for 160!)
    3/19~ 159.0 (CRUSHED THAT REVISED GOAL HECK TO THE YEAH)

    My name is Jenn I have 5 kids (1st one just left for college this year and another one that will be leaving next year). I am 39 and married to an amazing man. I work full time and have very little time to work out. Hopefully once the younger kids 10 and 13 get a little older, I will have more time. Right now I focus on eating right and maybe two to three times a week getting 45 minutes or so of cardio.

    Beginning Weight ~ 175-178
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 155.3
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 135
    My weigh in days will be Friday (these are usually my lowest weights, lol)


    November 20, 2018 ~ 155.3
    11/23 ~ 157.8 day after Thanksgiving uugggh
    11/30 ~ 153.8 that looks better
    December 7 ~ 152.3 I thought this week I would have been lower. Did really well. Not a drop of alcohol, clean eating, lots of water, and everything. I just don't think my body can lose 2 pounds a week no matter what. I am getting closer to my goal weight, so maybe that's why to. I am proud that I stuck to my plan this week and am down 1.5 pounds, so I'll take it!
    12/14 ~ 151.1 Going in the right direction for sure. Hopefully we can keep this pattern going!
    12/21 152.8 And I am back up again,lol. I'm holding on for dear life for December. I am still down 1 pound this month and that maybe all I get.
    12/28 ~152.3 Going back down. Had a lot to lose after Christmas though. One more holiday weekend and we are back on track. Happy New Year everyone!
    January 4, 2019 ~ 153.3 Holidays are over and my time off from work is done. So at least I maintained within a couple of pounds, but it is now time to get in the 140's. I have 5 weeks till vacation and that same weekend my second oldest turns 18. So my goal is 145!
    1/11 ~ 150.9 Been here for 3 days. Was hoping it would finally drop lower for today's weigh-in, but maybe next week I can post a better one.
    1/18 ~ 148.9 and I am officially in the 140's. Almost 4 pounds away from my first goal of 145. I have just over 3 weeks to get there before vacation. It is completely doable, but I usually lose a pound or less a week, so we will see. Happy where I am today and that is a win in my books.
    1/25 ~ 149.4 started our Vaca last night. Had a couple of drinks and started packing. We will see how The Weekend goes. It’s a short Vaca so shouldn’t do to much damage.
    February 1 ~ 147.6 Super stoked about this. Even with my vacation last week. 1 more week before Vegas, don't think I am going to see 145, but I will hopefully be close!
    2/8 ~ 149.8 and I'm back up a bit. Had Chinese food last night. I am sure it's the sodium plus I just haven't been trying that hard lately. I am leaving tomorrow on vacation for a week, so I will get back into it after I get home!
    2/15 Vacation ~ So want to be well established in the 140's decade and be below 145!
    2/22 ~ 151.2 I had 14 days of not counting calories and I am paying for it now. Lol, had an amazing time though and have no regrets. Hopefully by the end of March I reach my goal of 145!
    March 1 ~ 154.0 TOM came around of course, just as I was getting back on track. Water weight hopefully will be gone by next weeks weigh in
    3/8 ~ 152.3 was lower yesterday but will take it. I am at least headed back to the 140's
    3/15 ~ 151.0 uuugghhh. Hoping to end this in the 140's somewhere. We will see in a couple of days
    March 20, 2019 (last update)~ 151.8 so this is where I am ending this round.

    Total loss: 3.5 pounds Not great, but it is what it is. The last couple of months where rough! Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and our Vegas trip. This month I am back on track and determined to meet my goal next round! On to the spring through summer! 140's your calling my name

    My name is Tish
    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 177.2
    Challenge Goal Weight ~167 - 1/2 pound per week
    November 20, 2018 ~ 177.2 - 42 lbs left to reach my ultimate goal. It was 40 lbs on Nov. 9th when 175 appeared, then was rudely replaced by 177. Lol. This number loves me.
    11/27 ~ 178.8 - Been doing everything I should not the last 5 days; eating late in the day (8pm) eating bread, no electrolytes. One last croissant beckoning me today😊 and hopefully
    it's over.
    11/30 - 178.2 - Lol. Looks like I lost weight. Not. I prefer Wednesday's weight, 174.8😅 but obviously not that much since I ate pretzels last night. Keto carb havoc!
    December 4 - 😒 178.8 - That's rough , but better than yesterday. I think I should post daily weights for December.
    12/11 - 176.6 - Forgot it was weigh in day. By no means was this a linear loss. I was December 4 weight again yesterday!
    12/14 - 175.4 - Gotta post my own good report. I almost don't believe it. I was this weight once or twice during my traverse up and down the 170's since September! Praying it continues downward. I'm more than ready to be OUT of this decade! Doing EVERY THING RIGHT.
    12/18 - 176.2 - My mac and cheese😁
    12/25 - 174.8 - Eating carbs, up and down a smaller range of weights this past week.
    12/31 - 175.8
    January 1, 2019 - 178 😦
    1/3 - 175.8 - Knee is behaving somewhat better and I exercised for the first time in a week yesterday. Found a few different rehab exercises online for knee and shoulders. I will include them in my strength and stretch workouts.
    1/4 - 177.6 - Weight is up from late day start for everything, exercise, eating, bedtime. Not feeling my best yesterday or today for that matter. Got a nice workout in yesterday, not up to my standards, lol, but my standards are going to have to be altered until I can gain my muscle strength back.
    1/8 - 174.4
    1/15 - 173.2
    1/22 - 174.2
    1/29 - 176
    February 1 - 172.8
    2/3 - 174.8
    2/4 176.4
    *I'm going to do my best to get below 170 by the end of this challenge. The cold weather is making me want to eat more though.😣 At 169lbs, I'll be 34 lbs from my ultimate goal. At 158lbs, I will be at the threshold of a normal BMI.

    February 5 - 176
    2/12 - 176
    2/13 - 174.6
    2/14 - 174.2
    2/15 - 173.8

    2/19 - 175 - Higher carb count yesterday. I ate 2ozs of cashews, which is a lot. I think maybe, I can't eat cashews. I don't digest them well. Out all day and had a late dinner. My one year marker for keto was today and my gift was...

    March 5 - 174.4 - Started my version of an egg fast yesterday. Trying to shut down the starchy carb eating to get rid of this fluid.

    3/5 - 174.4
    3/6 - 173
    3/7 - 173.8
    3/8 - 172.6 - last day of egg/fat fast
    3/9 - 172.2 - Woot! Success! Haven'(t seen this number since Feb 1st!

    3/10 - 174.2 - Expected initial gain from eating carbs.
    3/11 - 170.8 - Day 3 of my two week IF experiment.
    📌 3/12 - 170.4

    3/19 - 171.2

    ●March 20, 2019 (last update) - 172.2 - Well. All this time and I lost 5 pounds. Of fluid weight! I've ping ponged in this decade since September '18. I'm on the right track now though. I had to work through a few causes and reasons for this weird "plateau" in order to progress. Stress eating, vitamin deficiency, a very strange craving and not being able to exercise effectively. Game on now!

    11/27 – 180.4 And a Happy Thanksgiving it was. But not such a healthy one. I celebrated all week and held or attended more than one dinner. Now, it’s back to the business of a newer and better version of me!

    December 4 178.6 Exactly back to where I started which is a good thing. Now, to get this ball rolling!
    12/11 180.4 Disappointed in my weight. Weighed very early due to long trip to University Hospital I am going to today. I will be gone 2 days. More restaurants and long car drives. I’m going to do my very best.
    12/18 180.4 No change which I suppose is good during this month of festivities, out of town trips and food temptations. Lets remember to enjoy and appreciate the season, not just work, work, work. I am going to try to keep eating clean (at least while I am at home), get in my cardio and keep my Hallmark channel going 24/7.
    12/25 183.2
    January 1, 2019 185.5 Ground Zero.
    01/08 183.3 Going back down about the same way I went up during December. Redemption. Thank you Lord.
    01/15 186.2 Lots of personal problems and business problems this week has derailed me. Trying hard to get on track. Food plan is hard to stick to during all this, but I have been trying to keep up the Cardio and the walking and limit my snacking. Carbs & calories over the top too many times this week.
    01/22 187.1 Was trying to do better but stress eating got me. Emergencies (tree on roof), loss of business, insurance inspections throughout ugg. Incorporated aerobic dancing into my routine and it helped, but a quick gain on the end was inevitable. Next week should be better.
    01/29 184.8 Yay…. I’m in the red & losing again. I’ve been dancing my butt off when able & it’s really paying off. It also helps me get my steps in. I’m in the groove right now & hope I can stay there. I’m always strong until I’m hungry, so I’ve got to stay prepared! I’m still way higher than my starting weight during this challenge (6.2 lbs up still). I’ve got a long way to go just to break even, but I’m trying!
    February 5 186.7 Up, Up and Away it went again. However, the past couple of days have been very on point so it’s coming back down slowly. Trying hard to beat those pesky carb monsters! It’s going to get better, and I hope this month is the re-start of all great things!
    02/12 …..185.4….. Woo Hoo. So Happy to be Typing in Red Again!!! This week will be tough. I will have two Food Festivities on Valentine’s Day that will be just way too tempting. I hope to offset it before the Feb 19th weigh-in. On the 20th & 21st I will be away from home in travels (restaurants & sitting ugg) unless weather forces cancellations. So next two weeks hold more temptation than I would like. I will just have to do my best & roll with the punches
    02/19 …..188.2….. Oops. Ballooned up again this week after Valentine’s Day but working it back down already. Any carb filled day can find me 3-7 pounds heavier the next day (which I know is mainly water) & that is disappointing. Lowering calories when possible & increasing exercise as my work schedule allows to get back in the groove.
    02/26…..188.0….. I’ve done great these past few days. Not much showing on the scale yet, but I’m feeling really good about how my days are going. Think Spring!
    March 5….. …..188.9….. Very disappointed in myself. But I never give up. ^^^^^^^^^ I….will…..win….this….battle!
    03/12 …..185.6…..I did an Egg Fast for 3 days and it helped a bunch. I’m feeling really motivated right now & increasing my movement as well. Sadly, I will end this challenge weighing more than I started, and have spent this time going up & down like a yo-yo. But I never stop learning & I never stop trying. I’m very proud of this past week.
    03/19
    March 23, 2019 (last update)~ …..189…...Late last weigh in date due to travel. Unfortunately weight is always up when I get home due to restaurants, low water intake and too much sitting. I plan on CRUSHING this next challenge. Thanks for the invite Tish @tiabirdie56. See you there!
