    Starting weight: 271.9
    Challenge starting Weight: 241.2
    Challenge goal Goal Weight: 215-220
    Ultimate goal: 165

    W1 12/1: 241.6 up .4 from yesterday, but not bad for having cooked a full thanksgiving meal for my husband and our friend.

    W2 12/8: traveling. No scale available.
    W3 12/13: 240.2. Down 1 pound this challenge. Was 239.8 yesterday. Actually did pretty good in Chicago last weekend. 14k steps walking around downtown on Saturday and even went on the viewing ledge on top of the Willis (sears) tower. Did not overdo the tapas friday night or the deep dish on Saturday, but definitely had my share of wine at my in-laws and snacks on the drive back to iowa. Bouncing around these 5lbs is getting a bit old, but at least i am maintaining, not gaining. I have a full week until my next Christmas, but my husband’s birthday is this week and it will be too cold to go running in sunday, i bet. Hoping for a small loss this coming week, then another small loss of maintenance over the holiday.

    Thanks for starting this. I've been trying to get down for so long and keep falling off the commitment level. Hopefully this changes now!!

    Starting Weight on 4/1/2019: 280
    Current Challenge Weight: 195.6
    Goal Weight: 180 (this is my ultimate goal weight from when I started my WLJ last April. It will mark a 100 lb total weight loss. These last 15 lbs will most likely be the toughest for me, but I will give it my best shot! Good luck everyone!)

    W1 12/1: 195.6
    W2 12/8: 193 (upped my workouts this past week, but have been eating back all my calories...apparently not enough! I'll take it though :) We'll see if it holds by next week.)
    W3 12/15: 191.6 (Thought for sure I would gain some back this week but reduced my salt intake and not retaining as much water now.)

    My weigh-in days are Mondays (usually the highest day of the week) My goal is to get between 135-138 even on a Monday by the end of this challenge and officially be in maintenance.

    Current Weight: 144.4
    Goal Weight:135-138

    W1 12/1: 144.4 extremely exaggerated number due to Thanksgiving, 5 day weekend with lots of alcohol, TOM, and still getting over shingles
    W1 12/2: 145.7 I have gained almost 8 pounds since Wednesday. Obviously carbs, sodium, alcohol, and not real weight. Hopefully be back down next week.
    W2 12/9: 138.8 and I am back down. This is my best Monday weigh-in ever!
    W3 12/16: 142.2 This is Tuesdays weigh-in. Forgot yesterday. We had 2 parties and a 3 day weekend. Should be down soon.

    Looks as though my plan last week to reel in the calories and ramp up the exercise has paid dividends.
    With today’s weigh in I am now ahead of my year’s end goal (<210).....now to just hold it together through the gauntlet!

    Yes, I like the way you put it- through the gauntlet! I've got 7 days left of holiday eating, and I'm going to stay consistent with my logging. December 26th I'm getting rid of the extra cookies and candy. Good luck Impala and everyone!

    Current weight 220
    Goal weight. 200

    I saw this challenge and thought I should try it. 🙂
    I’m up a little bit from recently eating kinda badly. So hopefully I will get back down soon. Also trying keto. I’m on my second day of keto. I’m finding it a little bit difficult trying to eat around my calorie target. I’m off my goal daily calories by 200. I can make it up if I do more cardio. So that’s my plan. Thanks and have a great day!

    Thanks again goylogo for starting this. I've felt a little more accountable when drinking and eating - knowing the check in was due!

    I'm hoping it will continue to keep me focussed. I'm in Australia so it's already 22/12!
