    My Name is Donna, Age 59. I am 5’5” tall & I live in Northern Michigan USA

    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!

    Weigh In Schedule:
    09/23: 193.0
    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.
    11/04: 186.0 Did better than I thought. Gained a bit of travel weight but quickly worked it off and trusted the process.
    11/11: 185.8
    11/18: 185.8 Gained then lost it back so I broke exactly even. Time for some true progress!
    11/25: 183.6 I just can’t tell you how happy I am, however, this upcoming week brings two days of travel (starting tomorrow) and a Thanksgiving Dinner being celebrated late on the 30th so I dread the next weigh-in. But I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. For now, I’m doing the happy dance!
    12/02: 183.2 Okay, so the temporary inflated weight from Thanksgiving Dinner on the 30th is gone and I’m okay again. This is not my lowest, it occurred during the week prior to dinner, so I have more work to do but I’m 0.4 lower than last week, even after Thanksgiving! I’ll take it!
    12/09: 188.2 Drats! And I was doing so well!
    12/16: 186.6 Any loss is a good loss. See you next round. Wow, I’ve been so inspired by all of your losses. I hope to be up there in the double digit range next round. Great Job Everyone!

    Total Accumulation of Weight Lost thus far in Challenge: 6.4 lb Lost

    11/4:150.8 (Happy with this since the meds can make you gain weight.)
    11/11: 149.2 (Dodged the parent weekend food binge bullet. Lots of veggies planned for this week🥗)
    11/18:149.6 (Weight jumped up 2 lbs from yesterday. Weekend crappy food choices, salt,liquor. Back at it : :#

    12/02:149.2 (A little surprised but I did drink every night - empty calories but I did log them.)
    12/09:147.6 (Christmas parties and fun aside, still hoping to get to 145 or below before we leave)
    12/16:146.6 (Tough, stressful weekend and my eating reflected my stress :s )

    Didn't hit goal but still very pleased since I lost almost 12 pounds while traveling, going to parties and generally enjoying life! Heading out for a 2 week trip next Saturday and will not be tracking but will be very active so when I come back hopefully it will not be back to square one!

    Happy Holidays and New Year to all of you.....you are all an inspiration and I look forward to the round 2 of the challenge. 🍾🥂

    Since Monday are my highest days of the week, I will put my Sunday weight and include my 7 day average for the week. Really looking to break into the 130's by the end of this challenge.

    Highest Weight: 178
    Current Weight: 145.4
    12 Week Goal Weight: 135-138
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 135-138

    Weigh In:

    9/23: 143.7 (Avg 144.6) - Weekends are my downfall. Had my youngest daughters birthday party and drank a little to much with the family on Saturday. It always hits me 2 days later.

    9/30: 140.9 (Avg 142.34) - tailgating for the Cowboys game. Drank and ate way to much yesterday. Feel terrible today and realizing I am getting way to old for these crazy weekends anymore.

    10/07: 141.5 (Avg 143.5) - Took a 3 day weekend this weekend. Had a little bit of a fall Saturday night and just needed to rest. The hubby and I are going to see a movie (Joker) and probably go out to lunch. Not having any snacks or popcorn though at the movies.

    10/14: 143.6 (Avg 143.13) - My lowest Monday ever. Did really well this weekend and am super proud that I held it together. If I can get my Mondays (which is usually my highest day of the week) down to 138 I will be stoked! Although, I haven't even been able to get my lowest days of the week into the 130's yet, lol.

    10/21: 143.9 (Avg 141.97) - Yup I had a really good weekend. Darnitt! At least my 7 day average is still trending down.

    10/28: 139.7 (Avg 143.37) Was high all week for some reason, but ended lower. Did a 24 hour fast on Saturday, so my Sunday weigh-in is probably lower than it should be. I am sure will bounce back up, but was nice to see this morning.

    11/4: 140.7 ( Avg 141.13) Was a little higher than last week, but not by much. Now I will bounce around here for a couple of weeks. I have really been trying, it's just so slow these days.

    11/11: 144.3 (Avg 141.57) and that is my weight after a bloody Mary and Mexican food yesterday! Booo

    11/18: 141.3 (Avg 140.94) Have done really well this weekend. Hopefully I can continue the downward trend, no matter how slow

    11/25: 137.1 (Avg 139.23) This may go up, but am happy with it for today. I was diagnosed with shingles and put on ant-virals about a week ago and have zero appetite. So my calories have been extremely low and so my weight has dropped. I am hoping this is the whoosh I have been waiting for and that it sticks when I get off of the meds, but it may go up a bit.

    12/02: 144.4 (Avg 140.29) Way to much alcohol on my 5 day weekend and tons of carbs. Hopefully I will lose it quickly!

    12/09: 138.8 (Avg 139.7) Not my lowest, but at least lower than last week and back in to the 130's. Looking to finish strong. Almost have my average in my maintenance zone, just a couple of more pounds!

    12/16: 137.7
