    Challenge Starting Weight: 154.8 lbs
    Challenge Level: A mix of Level 1 and Level 2. Looking to loose 7 Lbs but 10 would be a bonus.
    Challenge Goal weight: 147 lbs

    1 Nov - 154.8 lbs
    8 Nov - 153.8 lbs - I am so happy with this because I have finally got back into10st. I have not been in the 10st bracket for about 8 years. These challenges have really helped me to keep going and not to give up when my weight loss has slowed.
    15 Nov - 153.4 lbs
    22 Nov - 153.2 lbs
    29 Nov - 151 lbs

    6 Dec - 151.6 lbs
    13 Dec - 150 lbs - it is official according to my BMI i am no longer overweight 🍾 🥳. It has taken me 8 months to loose 38lbs, I've got another 3lbs to go to reach my personal goal once I get there i will see how a feel. I think would like to get to 140 lbs
    20 Dec - 151.4 - going in the wrong direction. I have been a bit relaxed with my tracking.
    27 Dec - 151.2 lbs - I have had 3 days without tracking. I have enjoyed eating roast dinner, takeaway pizza and sticky toffee pudding! In order to enjoy the delicious and high calorie foods i tried to make sensible choices for the rest of the day. Pretty happy to see i didn't go up 🙂

    3 Jan - 150 lbs

    Challenge Starting Weight: 208.4 (October 31, 2020)
    Challenge Level: *** (15 pounds)
    Challenge Goal weight: 193.4


    1 Nov – 207.4 Off to a good start! Good luck everyone!
    8 Nov – 206.0 Trying to stay mindful in a busy situation at home/work.
    15 Nov – 208.6 See what Chinese food does to me? Working it back down from a 210.0 bloat.
    22 Nov – 208.1 Working it down
    29 Nov – Forgot to weigh
    30 Nov – 207.2 Better!

    1 Dec – 207.6 Ouch!
    6 Dec – 203.4 That is more like it.
    13 Dec – 203.2 Up & Down all week but ended a touch lower so I’ll take it but clearly I will not make goal and that is sad.
    20 Dec – 206.0 No major Christmas goodies yet and I have not began the baking yet either. Just clearly overeating and not moving enough. A lot of sitting with Christmas shopping travel, online shopping and wrapping.
    27 Dec – 203.2 Doing a bit better it appears, if I look at the numbers for December. Today is my very large Christmas Dinner and party. It will be hard to keep this on the lower side to mark the end of December as successful. I will do my best.
    31 Dec – 207.0 Wow. Between Christmas and New Years is my weakest point! Now it’s time to put the work in. There will be alcohol tonight but I will carefully monitor the food and their portions.

    1 Jan – 207.8 OMGosh. Gotta change things immediately. This is the result of buckeye balls brought over by a friend, along with the milk. Grandkids will be over today. I’ll be giving them the rest!
    3 Jan – 207.1 a little better after some ups and downs. Now back to what I saw in mid-December, at least!

    I am excited to say that I have met my goal for the challenge, early!! I am changing up my exercise routine, so it should be interesting to see what the rest of the month looks like. Good luck everyone. Stay safe and well :):) .

    Oh, yeah: Here is the link to a new challenge starting 1/4/21. It goes till 3/29/21. It is a spreadsheet for weigh ins. They also have chat thread. I am going to just be part of the weigh in spreadsheet at this point. Anyway, thought I would share this. I plan to use my Sunday weigh ins, that I post here, for the first 4 weeks. :):)

    Challenge Starting Weight: 154.8 lbs
    Challenge Level: A mix of Level 1 and Level 2. Looking to loose 7 Lbs but 10 would be a bonus.
    Challenge Goal weight: 147 lbs

    1 Nov - 154.8 lbs
    8 Nov - 153.8 lbs - I am so happy with this because I have finally got back into10st. I have not been in the 10st bracket for about 8 years. These challenges have really helped me to keep going and not to give up when my weight loss has slowed.
    15 Nov - 153.4 lbs
    22 Nov - 153.2 lbs
    29 Nov - 151 lbs

    6 Dec - 151.6 lbs
    13 Dec - 150 lbs - it is official according to my BMI i am no longer overweight 🍾 🥳. It has taken me 8 months to loose 38lbs, I've got another 3lbs to go to reach my personal goal once I get there i will see how a feel. I think would like to get to 140 lbs
    20 Dec - 151.4 - going in the wrong direction. I have been a bit relaxed with my tracking.
    27 Dec - 151.2 lbs - I have had 3 days without tracking. I have enjoyed eating roast dinner, takeaway pizza and sticky toffee pudding! In order to enjoy the delicious and high calorie foods i tried to make sensible choices for the rest of the day. Pretty happy to see i didn't go up 🙂

    3 Jan - 150 lbs
    10 Jan - 150 lbs happy to be maintaining but still got 3lbs to go to reach my goal weight. Need to make more of an effort to track and to exercise.
    17 Jan - 150.4
