    So weight is up but body comp is down. I've been working on pull ups and dips every other day to increase upper body strength and those numbers are increasing, so I am going to put this week (cautiously) in the win column.

    Getting stronger is a definitely a win. Getting stronger eating at a deficit is hard!

    0.8lbs down this week. There were a couple of days where I ate too much. I'll make an effort to eat better this week. Biscuits (cookies) are my downfall. I have a son and he loves his biscuits, that's why I have them in the house. This week I'll buy less so there's less for me to be tempted by. Must...resist! :grimace:

    I'm not losing much weight :( Losing motivation to diet, some days I constantly look for food to eat, especially when I'm doing mentally demanding work. One good thing I did was going to the gym though. Goal of this week is to develop a better relationship with food -- not craving them all the time.

    Starting weight: 115.7
    End of challenge goal: 106

    Weigh In Schedule:
    9/27: 115.7

    I'm really happy that I'm now in a new decade in regards to my weight. I've surpassed my goal weight of 273 for this challenge. My new goal weight is only going to be 259 lbs (10.6 lbs to lose) and if I reach this before the end of this challenge, I will make another new one.
    Goal for this week: Continue to increase water intake, and work on exercises given to me by my occupational and physical therapist to improve upper and lower body strength and mobility.

    Highest Weight: 400 lbs
    Restart Weight: 297 lbs
    Previous Week's Weight: 274.6
    Current Week's Weight:. 269.6
    12 Week's Goal Weight: 273 (original goal)
    New Goal Weight: 259 (10.6 lbs by Dec 16th)
    Final Goal Weight: 185

    Weigh-In Schedule:
    9/23: 297
    9/30: 292.2
    10/07: 281.6
    10/14: 278.6
    10/21: 274.6
    10/28: 269.6 (I've noticed my weekly weight-loss seems to always end in .6 onces. Lol).

    Wow, on Friday, 10/25 I was 2 pounds lighter than my weigh in today and it was due to a dinner party that I attended on Saturday. To prepare, I did a long workout on Saturday morning and save my calories for the dinner. So telling how mindless eating can really affect fitness and weight loss goals. I say fitness because I did eat some empty calories... Oh well, one must live and carry on! Have a great week everyone...

    12 Week Challenge 2019 ~ Sept 23 ~ Dec 16
    •Monday Updates•
    My name is Tish
    Highest Weight~ 253
    Current Weight: 185.2
    12 Week Goal Weight: 175

    Weigh In Schedule:
    9/23~ 185.2
    9/24~ 185.6
    9/30~ 183
    10/3~ 182.4
    10/07~ 183.6 - No, not gaining
    Just normal fluctuations.
    10/14 - 181.8
    10/21 - 181.6

    10/28 - 183 - Smh. Up and down the scale to end the month the same weight as I started the month. The good news is that this 183 is excess fluid and not October 1st excess fat. My body fat percentage decreased. The scale weight will catch up eventually.

    My goal for this challenge is to power through the Halloween & Thanksgiving holidays and avoid as many temptations as possible to show a one pound loss per week. Out-of-town Christmas shopping travels will be the biggest challenge!

    09/30: 192.0
    10/07: 187.2 Traveling today & Wednesday. I hope I don’t wipe out all my progress!
    10/14: 190.0 I hate travel!
    10/21: 189.2 I wish I could have made more lasting progress.
    10/28: 187.8 Trying very hard. Travel this week so it will be a week of breaking even.
