    SW/current weight: 1/5 151.25lbs; 1/8 153.0lbs
    February 14th goal weight: 141.25lbs
    Ultimate goal weight 125lbs-135lbs

    Jan 5: 151.25lbs
    Jan 11: goal 149.25lbs; goal met! 149.25lbs
    Jan 18: goal 147.25lbs; 1/14 148.0lbs; 1/18 149.5lbs
    Jan 25: goal 146.5lbs; goal met on 1/21 146.5lbs; 1/25 147.5lbs
    Feb 1: goal 144.5lbs; goal met on 1/27 144.5lbs; low weight this week 1/29 143.875lbs, 2/1 145.25lbs
    Feb 8: goal 143
    Feb 14: goal 141.25lbs

    1/11 This week was not looking good. My weight jumped to 153.0lbs a few days ago. I switched back to a carefully counted low carb diet. ❤️
    1/18 On Thursday, my weight dropped to 148.0lbs. I have Friday and Saturday off. We ate out a couple times and I made better choices than I normally do (poke bowl, almond chicken w/soup, spring roll and 1 cream cheese wonton). I am at 149.5lbs today. I am hoping to pop right back to 148lbs tomorrow. Keeping it low carb under 50 grams 💜
    1/25 My weekend diet is causing significant fluctuations in my diet. I am mostly reaching my goals each Thursday. My goal for this week is to be very mindful of my diet over the weekend. I am going out of town on Friday so I will have to eat out for a meal or two. I am thinking a poke bowl and a seafood vegetable soup might be good choices. I would love to see 144.5lbs on the scale this Thursday but it would be fantastic to see that on a Monday weigh in! 🖤
    1/27 Wow! I weighed in early at 144.5lbs today! I am super stoked! 3.25lbs left to go! 🌹
    2/1 I love to see that my weight is trending down. I have a 3 day, 2 night snowboarding trip planned for this week and plan to indulge💋

    Sigh, I know what I’m doing wrong. Late night snacking and not exercising. Going to keep myself accountable and keep going!

    The challenge could be "Luck of the Irish!" to make your goal weight (or goal weight loss) feature 3's? (or it's multiples 5, 13, 17)

    I'm late but even though I drank over the weekend, all that snow shoveling did me some good.
    Updated check in:

    SW: 168.4
    GW: 140

    1/13 167.8
    1/18 165.8
    1/25 164.2
    2/1 162.6
    2/8
    2/12*

    Still not convinced I'm getting down to 158 by Valentine's Day but progress is something. I just have to get there because until I get below 159 my BMI will remain in the obese category :'( which is wholly unacceptable.

    Count me in for lose 10 pounds by St. Patrick's Day. Goals are good! Hell, I'll be happy to be at or under 150 by then.

    I mean, 3 or it's multiples. (I think I was posting too fast for my own good there)

    If we start on the 15th, we only have 30 days between Valentines Day and St. Patty’s Day. We could do a 6 pound loss goal.

    Starting weight on the 15th and then progress weights every Wednesday? Or every 3 days? Or every 6 days?

    With only 30 days between V day and St Patty’s (thank you google, lol), 10 pounds would be a steep goal. I like acrylic fox’ idea of multiples of 3. What do think about doing 6 pounds for the challenge?

    6 pounds seems like a lot to me but these challenges are about the magic of dreaming big right? So lets go for it!
    I like the six day weigh-in's. You could always start it on the 9th Feb if you feel it needs to be longer? (I think that works out as another weigh-in... but I think 30 days is fine)
    Maybe as a trophy, every time someone loses a pound they could earn a 🍀 and maybe trade 3 in at the end for a :rainbow: and 6 for a :rainbow: :pot of gold: that they can use in their MFP posts on St Paddy's day. :smiley: Just an idea.

    Challenge GW: 237
    Progress:
    1/8: 246.2
    1/15: 244.4
    1/22: 244.0
    1/29: 243.8

    Yeah, I think I'll be pleased and call it a win if I make it to 242.8 by next Friday, LOL. 237 maybe by the end of the month. I've got some bursitis/tendinitis type thing happening in my shoulder so I've needed to reconfigure my workout plans around that.

    I am definitely in for St. Patrick's Day! I slacked off and am now weigh more than when I started this challenge. Time to buckle down and watch my eating.
