    Dec 30 240.0.
    Month 2 stats -1.2 this month, 3.8 this challenge.

    Jan 3: 239.6 dealing with personal/professional stuff right now. First of all, i hate my job so much. So, so much. Cried every time i thought about it for the past week. So bad. Next, one of our students was shot dead Wednesday morning (not my class, but still). Been counseling students while trying to deal with it myself. Which is hard no matter what, but it is my first time through this. The candlelight vigil was tonight and because of the location and situation i was really worried about retaliation gunfire, but it has been over an hour and no news has come up, so it probably ended without any more of my kids getting hurt...

    Hey everyone. Just wanted to pop in and say you're all doing great :) I haven't posted in here in a while, but I still watch this thread and like seeing the progress you've all made!

    Unfortunately for me, the past few months have been rough. I've actually been putting on weight instead of taking it off. There is no way I can win this challenge. For now, I will just try to get back to my starting weight for this challenge (it was 230, I'm currently at around 235). I will, however, be participating again in the next 3-month challenge that will start in February. Until then, I'll just keep an eye on this thread and keep rooting for you guys! <3

    MY NAME IS DONNA. I AM 59 YEARS YOUNG & FROM THE MIDWEST USA. I AM APPROX 5’ 5” TALL.



    Start date: November 1st, 2019
    Challenge Starting Weight: 188.0
    Challenge Level: ✴✴✴✴ (16 lbs.) Pretty ambitious during all the major holidays!
    Challenge Goal weight: 172.0

    November 01: 188.0 Good Luck Everyone!
    November 06: 186.0 Happy with the progress for this week. I can see that the right choices combined with some movement really does pay off. Just a little slower at my age than it used to be, but still so rewarding. I am traveling on the 11th, which will likely set me back. So I'm feeling a little trepidation about my next weigh in, but I'll do my best to recover quickly!
    November 13: 188.6 Emotional eating related to health issues and worries. I am going to focus on the positive and give it my very best efforts!
    November 20: 184.6 I worked hard this week. Especially in the calorie burning category. I am trying not to let things get to me in regards to my test results. Still waiting for more news since the last call 1 week ago today. No news is good news, right?
    November 27: 187.8 This is the morning after a travel day where I had lots of sitting in the car & a restaurant meal. I practiced portion control but the mashed potatoes & gravy & dinner rolls apparently had carbs. Seriously though, I did expect an increase this morning but yikes……. Working on it today. My Thanksgiving dinner is not until Saturday so that will affect the December weigh-in. I’ve got a few days to make November a little better!
    November 30: 182.4 Happy with weight but tomorrow is my Thanksgiving Day Feast so my weight will not likely be a number I’m proud to post!

    Total Loss for November……………… -5.6
    Total Accumulation of Weight Loss for Challenge………… - 5.6 lb Loss




    December 01: 187.4. Thanksgiving dinner last night with my family was wonderful. I ate child-sized portions but I did sample a few desserts. Even very small samples add up. But 5 pounds overnight when my calories in were less than my calories out? Humph! Okay, carbs hate me and I hate them right back so the real battle begins. My weight will be back down very soon!
    December 04: 182.6 Okay, that’s better! Only 0.2 lbs over my lowest weight before the Thanksgiving Dinner Celebration. Travel this upcoming week. Lots of car sitting, but lots of walking & shopping involved too. There will be restaurants but I am going to knock down every pound that pops up as a result of my travels. No worries. I feel pretty strong.
    December 11: 188.8 I guess I wasn’t so strong afterall!
    December 18: 188.2 Not doing well at all. Just standing in the same spot wrapping most of the time, or doing year-end paperwork required for my business. No exercise in sight. This is seriously depressing!
    December 24: 192.0
    December 31: 191.2 Look out January, Here I come with my boxing gloves on!

    Total Loss for December……3.8 GAIN……..
    Total Accumulation of Weight Loss for Challenge………… 3.2 GAIN



    January 01: 189.2 Happy New Year Everyone!
    January 08: 190.6 From bad to worse. Time to get serious!

    @quemalosuerte I am so so very sorry to hear about the loss of the student. Thankfully you are there to help with the other students and what they are feeling. Now WE are all here to help you. Praying for everyone who is grieving. Feel free to journal your feelings here. Our journey's involve way more than just what is on the scale or on the measuring tape. {{hugs to you}}.

    19/12: 147.2: It's a bit up and down at the minute because of festive social events, but I'm holding it together much better than I have in a very long time.
    26/12: 149.6: Up a bit after 4 days entertaining family staying over Christmas. Still the best Dec in quite a few decades. And I am below my 2019 goal of 155.

    This Challenge has given me the impetus to actually keep going, when in the past I have slipped back each time I got near to my goal weight. Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement. It has been invaluable to me.

    Jan 11: 236.0. Down 7.8 this challenge, 35.9 from my starting weight. I had been “stuck” at exactly 239 all week, and had a big woosh this morning. I started taking my iPad to the gym with me and have been watching Brooklyn 99 during my workouts. It’s lighthearted and fun and has been doing a good job at keeping me going. Been to the gym 3 times this week for a total of 80 workout minutes. Want to do at least 90 minutes this next week, and maybe even add in a 4th day.

    ============================
    This Challenge has given me the impetus to actually keep going, when in the past I have slipped back each time I got near to my goal weight. Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement. It has been invaluable to me.

    Month 2 stats: down 1.2 this month, 3.8 this challenge.

    Jan 3: 239.6 dealing with personal/professional stuff right now. First of all, i hate my job so much. So, so much. Cried every time i thought about it for the past week. So bad. Next, one of our students was shot dead Wednesday morning (not my class, but still). Been counseling students while trying to deal with it myself. Which is hard no matter what, but it is my first time through this. The candlelight vigil was tonight and because of the location and situation i was really worried about retaliation gunfire, but it has been over an hour and no news has come up, so it probably ended without any more of my kids getting hurt...

    Jan 11: 236.0. Down 7.8 this challenge, 35.9 from my starting weight. I had been “stuck” at exactly 239 all week, and had a big woosh this morning. I started taking my iPad to the gym with me and have been watching Brooklyn 99 during my workouts. It’s lighthearted and fun and has been doing a good job at keeping me going. Been to the gym 3 times this week for a total of 80 workout minutes. Want to do at least 90 minutes this next week, and maybe even add in a 4th day.

    Jan 18: 236.4 snow day yesterday was nice. Did 40 minutes at the gym, and 30 minutes in Thursday. Planning on another 30 tomorrow morning. Goal is 4 days next week, 120 minutes.

    MY NAME IS DONNA. I AM 59 YEARS YOUNG & FROM THE MIDWEST USA. I AM APPROX 5’ 5” TALL.



    Start date: November 1st, 2019
    Challenge Starting Weight: 188.0
    Challenge Level: ✴✴✴✴ (16 lbs.) Pretty ambitious during all the major holidays!
    Challenge Goal weight: 172.0

    November 01: 188.0 Good Luck Everyone!
    November 06: 186.0 Happy with the progress for this week. I can see that the right choices combined with some movement really does pay off. Just a little slower at my age than it used to be, but still so rewarding. I am traveling on the 11th, which will likely set me back. So I'm feeling a little trepidation about my next weigh in, but I'll do my best to recover quickly!
    November 13: 188.6 Emotional eating related to health issues and worries. I am going to focus on the positive and give it my very best efforts!
    November 20: 184.6 I worked hard this week. Especially in the calorie burning category. I am trying not to let things get to me in regards to my test results. Still waiting for more news since the last call 1 week ago today. No news is good news, right?
    November 27: 187.8 This is the morning after a travel day where I had lots of sitting in the car & a restaurant meal. I practiced portion control but the mashed potatoes & gravy & dinner rolls apparently had carbs. Seriously though, I did expect an increase this morning but yikes……. Working on it today. My Thanksgiving dinner is not until Saturday so that will affect the December weigh-in. I’ve got a few days to make November a little better!
    November 30: 182.4 Happy with weight but tomorrow is my Thanksgiving Day Feast so my weight will not likely be a number I’m proud to post!

    Total Loss for November……………… -5.6
    Total Accumulation of Weight Loss for Challenge………… - 5.6 lb Loss




    December 01: 187.4. Thanksgiving dinner last night with my family was wonderful. I ate child-sized portions but I did sample a few desserts. Even very small samples add up. But 5 pounds overnight when my calories in were less than my calories out? Humph! Okay, carbs hate me and I hate them right back so the real battle begins. My weight will be back down very soon!
    December 04: 182.6 Okay, that’s better! Only 0.2 lbs over my lowest weight before the Thanksgiving Dinner Celebration. Travel this upcoming week. Lots of car sitting, but lots of walking & shopping involved too. There will be restaurants but I am going to knock down every pound that pops up as a result of my travels. No worries. I feel pretty strong.
    December 11: 188.8 I guess I wasn’t so strong afterall!
    December 18: 188.2 Not doing well at all. Just standing in the same spot wrapping most of the time, or doing year-end paperwork required for my business. No exercise in sight. This is seriously depressing!
    December 24: 192.0
    December 31: 191.2 Look out January, Here I come with my boxing gloves on!

    Total Loss for December……3.8 GAIN……..
    Total Accumulation of Weight Loss for Challenge………… 3.2 GAIN



    January 01: 189.2 Happy New Year Everyone!
    January 08: 190.6 From bad to worse. Time to get serious!
    January 15: 189.7 Finally in the right direction.
    January 22: 189.6 Still fighting the severe glucose drops which lead to frenzied eating to bring back in line. Some improvement this week on that. A small episode last night was quickly handled and disaster averted. T2D sucks, especially after the holidays when everything ends up so out of whack! I’ll be lucky to be back at starting weight this challenge, but if glucose can be brought back into submission, next round will be better.
