    🌲December Challenge🌲

    Hello members. My name is Mary, 61 years old and my driver's license says 5'7" but I just measured myself and 5' 5 1/4 inches. I wanted to say thanks for the support this group has given to me. I enjoy the sharing of updates as we face our challenges in attaining a healthier version of ourselves.

    Goal Weight 179 lbs 4lbs to lose

    Highest weight: 204
    Current weight: 183
    December weight lost so far: 2. lbs⬇️

    December 1 183lbs
    My weekly weigh-in is Wednesday. No movement from yesterday.

    December 8 182 lbs ⬇️
    This has been my most consistent month so far. I prefer the consistency. I have 3 lbs to lose to reach my December goal. I really think we all should applaud the fact that we are on this journey to our healthier version of ourselves in the fun crazy month of December and not forget in a pandemic. 👏👏👏

    December 15 180 lbs
    So one pound to go to hit my December goal but the next 2 weeks will be filled with snacking and Christmas cheer temptations. My 7 day average weight it 182.2 lbs. I remind myself that because of the awareness that stepping on the scale today was a positive but not constant. Again love this group for the support.

    December 22 181 lbs
    Wednesday regular weigh-in. Though I am a 1lb more than last Wednesday. My weekly average went down to 180.9 lbs. Feeling pretty good that my weight is constant. 2 more pounds to lose.
    December 23 181lbs
    December 24 181lbs
    December 25 180.5 lbs⬇️

    Hello! I’m Athena! I’m 5 ft and started getting serious about my weight in the November challenge and am looking forward to continuing this month! 🎄

    I did well with weekly goals in November, so plan to continue those this challenge: I will try to only go out to eat on the weekends and practice mindful eating and push to work out three times a week.

    Highest weight: 165
    Goal weight: 130
    December goal weight: 155

    December 1 - 156 (went out)
    December 2 - 157 (home cooked)
    December 3 - 157 (went out)
    December 4 - 157 (went out)
    December 5 - 158 (went out)

    Weekly goals not met, but gonna keep working at it!

    December 6 - 160 (home cooked/ Yoga 1hr)
    December 7 - 158 (home cooked/ Yoga 1 hr)
    December 8 - 158 (home cooked)
    December 9 - 157 (home cooked/ Walking 1 hr)
    December 10 - 158 (went out)
    December 11 - 157 (went out)
    December 12 - travel

    Weekly goal not met, but worked out 3 times!

    December 13 - travel
    December 14 - travel
    December 15 - travel
    December 16 - travel
    December 17 - travel
    December 18 - travel

    December 19 - 160 (went out)

    Weekly goal not met, but prepared to work it off!

    December 20 - 160 (leftovers/home cooked)
    December 21 - 158 (home cooked/ Yoga 1hr)
    December 22 - 158 (went out)
    December 23 - 159 (went out/ running 30 min)
    December 24 - ?
    December 25 - ?
    December 26 - ?

    Weekly food goal not met, but got some good activity in!

    December 27 - 159 (home cooked/ running 30 min)

    Definitely not gonna meet my monthly goal, but that’s alright! I’ve decided to adjust my workouts since I struggle to do a class three times, I’m thinking of continuing Yoga and Zumba and then run on the treadmill for 30 min. Also planning to establish more mindful eating as well, I cut loose on the holiday so time to get back to routine!

    Hello Everyone!
    I'm Mary 64, 5'4" from Pennsylvania. My goal is to get back down AGAIN to 122 lbs. Kept it off for about 5 years and then got lazy. My body just stores Carbs too easily. I work long hours and exercise on my 3 off days/week, making up for my 4 work days. I started this challenge in November and will continue through December and January. Great group of motivating members! Thank you Jill! My goal is 5 lbs for December. My other goal is 15 lbs for Nov, Dec and Jan. JOIN US!



    🌲December Challenge🌲

    Highest weight: 255 lbs (twice) :-(
    November 1 weight-181.8 lbs
    November goal-5 lbs
    November loss-5.6 lbs :-)
    December 1 weight-176.2 lbs
    December goal-5 lbs
    Current weight today-167 lbs!
    December weight lost so far: -9.2 lbs :-)
    Nov/Dec/Jan weight loss so far (Goal-15 lbs): -14.8 lbs :-)
    Loss since 9/14/20-88.0 lbs :-)

    December 1-176.2 lbs. Pre logged yesterday for today and Pre logged tomorrow. Stayed within my calories, carbs and water minimum.
    December 2-176.2 lbs Pre logged for tomorrow.
    December 3-175 lbs
    December 4-173.8 lbs! I'm No Longer Obese by BMI charts! I'm overweight now! Even as a RN I don't dwell on BMI. I have always weighed more than what people think. My boys are all the same way. Solid. My one son in the military when he was about 4-6% body fat was Obese on a BMI chart. So...
    I'm wearing size 10 jeans but put on a pair of 8's today and easily zipped them up, but not wearing them because my flabby belly hangs out over bad. Did my Elliptical for 222 minutes for 16.3 miles today.
    December 5-171.8 lbs. Did 224 minutes on my Elliptical for 14.25 miles. I was obviously moving at a slower pace since I didn't get to my usual 15-16 mile range. Thrilled by the swoosh of weight though today!
    December 6-172.8 lbs-Stayed on track so hopefully just my usual uptick before a drop! Worked today, off tomorrow so will be on my elliptical again.
    December 7-171.2 lbs Was on my Elliptical for 250 minutes/18 miles. Had a Nursing conference dinner at a restaurant and figured I would make sure I had more than enough for a calorie deficit. Pre logged today for tomorrow. Had 150 oz of water today.
    December 8-171.2 lbs Thought I would have a drop today but maybe tomorrow.
    December 9-171.2 lbs. :-( Didn't drop yet. 220 minutes on my Elliptical today for 14 miles.
    December 10-172.2 lbs :-( Still no drop. Had stayed on point so it has to be my usual uptick before a drop.
    December 11-172.2 lbs :-( Still no drop again! Getting a bit old. But tomorrow is my official weigh in day for a couple challenges. So.... hopefully tomorrow. Fingers crossed! Going to a work holiday party tonight. Its a Rock N Bowl. Just us no families. To hang out other than at work. Where things are hectic at times with patients. They are having pizza but they also planned some Keto friendly items, like unbreaded chicken for at least 1 other girl and me. I'm also taking some of my own snacks. Hard boiled eggs, cheese and some pecans, just in case. And I ate dinner at home.
    December 12-170.8 lbs Well it's a drop. I was hoping for more than 0.4 lbs, like getting into the 160's as I have been staying on track. But I have met my December goal ALREADY!
    Glad I took my own snacks to my work bowling party last night. We had some much fun, even though the majority of us stunk at the games. I hadn't bowled in probably 20 years at least! They had pizza, BREADED chicken nuggets and french fries. I didn't indulge in it at all. I ate a hardboiled egg, a colby jack string cheese and water.
    Did 242 minutes on my Elliptical today for 17 miles and my fat percentage is coming down on my scale.
    December 13-172.0 :-( Ugh!!!! Again hopefully the usual uptick before a drop because I have stayed on track.
    December 14-169.4 lbs :-) Yessss! Finally into the 160's! But now I can't wait to get into the 150's. I got a later start today. I only did 140 minutes on my elliptical for 11 miles today.
    December 15-170.6 lbs
    December 16-170.6 lbs
    December 17-170.6 lbs- Have been having some very long work days, so logging 15th, 16th and 17th today. Gosh I really dislike my usual uptick after a drop! :-(
    December 18-170.6 lbs :-( Elliptical today 137 minutes for 9.1 miles.
    December 19-169.6 lbs :-) Starting back down again. Elliptical today for 140 minutes for 9.15 miles.
    December 20-171.0 lbs. :-( Ugh!
    December 21-168.2 lbs! Yippee! :-) Hopefully my next "usual uptick" won't go into the 170's again. I really dislike that uptick before a drop and going into the upper 10 lbs is worse than staying in the one I have achieved.(160 range is better than the 170's). Didn't do my Elliptical this AM. I had a hair appointment. (A girl has her priorities!) And hopefully finishing my Christmas shopping after it. Maybe will get to it later tonight. I'm off tomorrow and plan to do my baking, pies and Pumpkin rolls, as I'm working Thursday and Friday.
    December 22-168.2 lbs I was out Christmas shopping yesterday, after my hair appointment, till 10:30 PM! I didn't eat since 10 AM but drank water. I was barely hungry. Ate meat and veggie when I got home and then some pumpkin custard made with erythritol, I made a few days ago. Helped me to not actually eat my pumpkie pie. Didn't get on the elliptical last PM but I did get on today. 150 minutes for 10.1 miles. Today is my baking day, as I work Thursday and Friday.
    December 23-167.2 lbs
    December 24-167.2 lbs
    December 25-167.2 lbs I behaved today, prime rib, roasted broccoli, cauliflower, pepper medley and spring mix salad with strawberries, feta and nuts with no dressing. Then a piece of pumpkin cheesecake. Stayed within my calories. Did 180 minutes on my Elliptical this AM for 11.3 miles.
    December 26-165.6 lbs Down 89.4 lbs! Met my Nov/Dec/Jan goal already! I got through 2 festive, BIG food holidays and didn't gain! I will not slow down on my part but continue on as I have been. I'm not saying if the scale will cooperate and continue on dropping as it has though. Wearing my size 8 jeans today and a medium flannel shirt I haven't worn since 2014! Did 240 minutes on my Elliptical for 16 miles. A 90 lb loss is just around the corner for me and 100 is just around the bend!

    December 27-167 lbs. My usual uptick. :-(
