    Age: 51
    Height: 5'
    SW: 266.6 (1/4/21)
    SW November: 233.5
    SW for December: 234.7
    GW for December: 229
    GW for October 2022 because that's my focus: 165

    12/3: 233.5
    12/10: 233
    12/17: 235.8
    12/24: 234.5

    I'll take that loss! My back has been hurting for a couple days, so I'm rather surprised to be down at all. I usually eat more when I'm sulking or in pain.
    I'm susceptible to the kind of magical thinking where if I didn't enjoy a food the calories don't count, so I can/should/will eat something else.
    I do that too! I'm trying so hard to remind myself I can try again *next meal* or next time I eat out, not *now.*

    Congratulations on Onederland, @goal06082021 !!

    Mary, look at you go!

    Merry Christmas to those who celebrate, a pleasant Saturday to those who don't :)

    Age: 30
    Height: 5'3"
    SW: 252.8 (11/13/2020)
    CW: 203.4 (11/27/2021)
    12/4: 201.4
    12/11: 200.4
    12/18: 198
    12/25: 198.6
    GW for December/2021: 196
    UGW: 144 by end of 2022

    I did see that 196 on the scale earlier this week, but things kind of went off the rails from Wednesday onward - I really underestimated how much I relied on my daily routine. Lesson learned I suppose, I'll prep some breakfasts and lunches for next week (I'm off work until 1/4). I also haven't done much exercise this week; the Planet Fitness app finally deleted the series of videos from last year that I was in the middle of as of Monday morning, so I've just been going for walks and aiming for 10k steps per day (which I've been hitting up until yesterday - I basically spent Christmas Eve on the couch, LMAO, but I guess I needed a rest day).

    We managed to score an old Mr. Coffee 12-cup drip coffeemaker from the thrift store - it needed a new thermostat, but once Hubs installed that it worked like new. We have an ungodly number of coffeemakers already, but now we have a way to make more than one cup at a time! It's even programmable - we decided the inaugural brew would be coffee for Christmas morning. (Our current collection includes, in addition to the Mr. Coffee: a first-gen Keurig; a 24-oz French press; a stovetop espresso maker/moka pot; an Aeropress; and a coffee siphon, which is the coolest-looking but biggest pain in the *kitten* to use, LMAO. We still need a pour-over cone and a Chemex to complete the set.)
  • @goal06082021 wow with the coffee pots!! I didn't realize that was a hobby for you. Nice!! Merry Christmas all!! Congratulations for all those who are hanging in there with the holidays. We can do this! Whether it is maintenance, or simply watching what you eat - I hope you safe food journeys to go with all your celebrations!!

My weigh in day is Sunday.

I zipped them right up, no trouble. My flabby belly though hangs out bad over the waistband, so need to do abdominal crunches.

    I just couldn't wait for my regular weigh-in day. I had to share!
    12/14/21- 169.4 lbs :-) YESSSSS! The 160's! But since this AM, now in my head I'm thinking about getting into the 150's. I could be back into my old clothes by Summer!

    12/21/21-168.2 lbs

I actually lost over Thanksgiving and Christmas. 90 lbs around the corner and 100 lbs just around the bend! Have on my size 8 jeans today and a medium flannel shirt I haven't worn since 2014!

    Merry Christmas everyone! I have thoroughly enjoyed this Christmas season so far, especially that both of my brothers & spouses were able to join us. Last year it was prohibited and with Omicron numbers skyrocketing,  it was touch and go again this year - so hurray!

    Scale shows me up 3 lbs today, not too worried - but I am cognizant that I am just in the lull between feasting so taking it a bit easy the rest of this week until New Years and will stay within maintenance calories. Eating my turkey dinner leftovers until ham on New Year's day!

    Age 61 / height 5' 4.5"

    Aug 13/2021 - 298.8 (SW & ATH)
    November  - 272.2 (Down 26.6)

    Dec 1 - 271 4
    Dec 3 - 270.4
    Dec 10 - 269.8 (recalc'd calories)
    Dec 11 - 267.6
    Dec 17 - 268.6 (+1, but still 30.2 down total)
    Dec 24 - 267.2 (changed to maintenance calories until January)
    Dec 31

    Weight goal for December - 30 lbs down ✔ and keep that loss into the New Year (TBD)!

    I usually weigh in daily when at home, but will record weekly, trying for Fridays (if I slept at home Thursday night to weigh in next morning - until my new portable scale arrives)

    Other goals:
    [  ] Go for minimum 15 minute walk each day, indoors or out - sadly, this has fallen off - but I have been working on a step goal & my daughter gave me a mini trampoline which I plan to set up tonight. Shout out to @sargemarcori for your walk!
    [  ] Get my water in, minimum 6 cups - ✔
    [  ] Focus on adequate protein in my diet, especially seafood - added keeping carbs below 150 grams when I recalc'd my calories - did well most of December but Xmas dealt this a blow, carbs are way up
    [  ] Get Christmas stuff done!!! Enjoy the day!! ✔✔

    Hi Everyone!
    I haven't posted since the end of November. This time of year has always been particularly busy and I tend to put myself on the back burner, which means I haven't been eating correctly or exercising. The past few days I've been getting my head back on straight. I hope 2022 is the year for all of us to reach our health goals!!!
