    Starting weight: 2/9 148lbs
    Goal weight: 139lbs

    Mini goals:
    1) Hydration 💦 (Drink a gallon of water a day)
    2) Diet 🥑🥦 (Keep calories under 1650 daily)
    3) Fitness 👟 (Exercise 3 hours every 6 days)

    2/9: (For the early birds) 148lbs
    2/15: (Official start date) 145.75lbs
    2/21: 2/18 144.25, 2/19 144.25, 2/21 after a major carb load 146.5
    2/27: 143.25lbs
    3/5: 3/6 144 7/8 lb.
    3/11:
    3/17: Oh how I would love to see 139lbs on the scale! Heck, I would love to see 139.875lbs (I have a huge scale, like the doctors office, that measures accurately to 1/8th lb).

    3/6 I have been doing great with drinking 3 quarts of water. I ate a ton of carbs the last two days. It is awesome to see the scale trending down.

    I would love to start this challenge!! I have been at roughly the same weight for the past several years. I lost 10lbs last March and then COVID happened and I completely let go after being overwhelmed with job loss, kids in virtual school and just being hidden in general. I’ve gained about 20lbs in the past year 😳 which makes this the most I’ve ever weighed in my adult life minus pregnancies.

    Goals:
    Drink a gallon of water and lose 6lbs

    2/15- 161.9
    2/21- 158.2
    2/27- 157.7
    3/5- 157.1
    3/11-
    3/17-

    I’ve stuck to my calorie budget 1200-1400 a day depending on how hungry I am. Have slacked on the water, but made it to exercise 5 days a week. Almost there!

    Starting weight: 129
    Goal weight for challenge: 123 (to lose 6 lbs)
    Ultimate goal: 120

    Mini Goals:
    1- Fitness 👟 (Exercise 3 hours every 6 days)
    Plan- exercise 30 minutes on bike & 10 on
    arms six days/week = 4 hours)
    2- Stay within calorie budget
    Plan- whenever possible budget dinner
    and dessert, if needed either add
    extra workout or reduce desert
    3- Drink at least 48oz, aiming for 64oz of water
    Plan- other than coffee, drink only seltzer
    until dinner (wine or beer) and then
    seltzer

    2/9: 129
    2/15: 127
    2/21: 126.5
    2/27: 126
    3/1- 126
    3/7: 126
    3/14:
    3/17:

    Mini Goal Progress:
    1- The habit of first morning coffee and then exercise, is set. 🎉
    2- Calorie planning is working. Although, it still amazes me that there are a ridiculous amount of calories in a tiny slice of cake. 🎉
    3- Drinking 48-64oz water. Most days getting in 40 oz.

    Don’t think I’m going to hit my St. Patrick’s Day goal. I’m going to keep trying, I’ll get there eventually. Maybe the luck o’ the Irish will move the scale.

    Happy Sunday everyone 🍀

    I'm in! Thanks for the motivation!

    Starting weight: 198
    Goal weight for challenge: 192 (6 lbs)


    Pick any mini goal:
    1) Continue running (very slow jog) 3 days a week, and continue daily yoga practice

    2/15: 198
    2/21:196.8
    2/27: 198
    3/8: 195.4
    3/17:

    Week 3: Did OK this week- jogged twice and hiked once and did yoga 6/7 days. Feeling pretty good!

    Week 1: Only made it to jog 2 x this week between lots of winter weather, but looks like this week will be better! I did keep to my daily yoga practice which was really helpful with feeling stuck inside.

    Week 2: Not sure what happened this week, but I've been at or close to my calorie goal so I'm trusting the process and we'll see what the scale says next week! Again only got in two jogs, but also squeezed in a couple of solid walks and did my yoga 6 out of 7 days. Here's to week 3!

    Original SW: 252.8 (11/13/2020)
    Challenge SW: 243.1 (2/5/2020)
    Challenge GW: 235

    Mini Goals:
    * Ring Fit Adventure on weekends + at least 1 weeknight
    * Limit snacks to 300cal per day
    * At least one long (30+min) outdoor walk per week

    I weigh in on Fridays, so I'm adjusting the check-in dates.
    2/12: 241.4
    2/19: 239.8

    3/19:

    Amazing! I'm very pleased with this. Snacks are still a struggle, but my average over the last 7 days was 364 cal/day in snacks, so that's at least going down. I think it helps to plan to spread out the "snacky" components of my lunch throughout the day, rather than eating it all at once at noon; like, if I pack a main + some fruit + peanut butter crackers for lunch, it seems to help if I eat the fruit around 10 AM, the main at noon, and the peanut butter crackers at 3 PM. The challenge is on days when I work from home, all of my snacks are just Right There.

    Not losing at a rate that I’m super happy with given how hard I’m working, but trusting that discipline will pay off. One weekend left to go! We’ve (me & husband) kept cheating off the table really, but celebrating st. Patty’s with Guinness brownies 🤤 and then back on track for spring

    Had a bit of an off week, super unmotivated, eating a little recklessly, but happy to see the scale still moving in the right direction. Will probably not reach my goal, but it will be close.

    3/12 I spent a week on vacation eating all I wanted. I was back home weighing in on the 12th. WOW. Time off does not do me any good! I expect most of my vacation weight to be off by the 17th but don’t think I will quite reach my goal. At least I will be lighter than I started this challenge!
