    Your goal is absolutely realistic. I truly believe that you can make it to your goal if you really double down on the next few weeks. It would also be worth it to drink more water incase you have any nasty water weight dragging down your progress. You're doing great!

    Highest Weight: 203lbs
    Current Weight: 180.5lbs
    12 Week Goal Weight: 161lbs
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 126 (I'm short)

    Weigh In Schedule:
    Sept 23:180.5
    Sep 30:178.5 (-2)
    Oct 7:178 (-0.5)
    Oct 14:175.5 (-2.5)
    Oct 21: 173.5 (-2)
    Oct 28: 173 (-0.5)
    Nov 4: 171 (-2)
    Nov 12: 172 (+1, Down 8.5 since Sept 23, 11 to go)

    Honestly, that's not bad, been up late (studying), up early (working), stopped tracking last few days, have hardly left house (so I've missed my normal 90min walk a day...I walk to work, etc... so my activity is way down), drinking too much tea + coffee, not enough water and decided once I wasn't eating 'junk' I could eat what ever I wanted till I got this submission done. So I guess I've been eating at maintenance, probably a bit over, but I get a bit of respite from tomorrow for a couple of weeks. So back to logging absolutely everything, dig out the bike and find the gym again :D

    Was reading the chats / stats about folks being on here, interesting... thanks @mthwbrwn Honestly, I think the last week would have re-railed me at another time, but knowing I was checking in here did add a level of moderation.

    Days I used to worry about. My 3-month check-up with my doctor. I never liked going to the doctor's office, mainly because they would always tell me the same thing, "You need to lose weight." Like I didn't already know that. So I stopped going for years. I went back at the beginning of this journey, in August. This time, however, I proudly walked into the office. Down nearly 60 pounds since summer, down nearly 90 from my highest. Everything went well. Just missed the call about my bloodwork.. That will have to wait until tomorrow. Been a good day.

    Congrats! That's a great accomplishment and you should be so proud! 👏
