Anyone up for another 10# Challenge, starting 1/1/2022 and on until 4/1/2022?
Same as always, check in on start date, and weekly on Saturday, with your losses. You can list your weights, if you want, or not. Just need the downs, and probably ups for the week.
I'm hoping for a 10# below goal final, which might, or might not be a 10# loss, but the competition helps.
Those of us attending WW meetings can either use their last weigh-in, and following, weights, or your at home ones. Your choice.

    Not sure I’m up for a challenge approach, Al. I’ve settled into a target of 2# per month, which is giving me a nice mix of flexibility and progress. As long as that’s working, I hate to disrupt it.

    As an alternative, I'd set a target of 6 pounds against your 10, and maybe we can both be winners.

    Whatever works for you. Anyone can tailor it to their own needs.

    I'm all in! I got a call from my Cardiologist Christmas Eve saying he was giving me an early Christmas present. My last echo on Wednesday week before Christmas week has my EF factor from 35-40 which is very low to 55-60 which is normal. This was after having a new biventricular 3 lead pacemaker installed on 9/10/21. In feeling much better. 🏃

    I'm in! Taking 10 pounds off would get me a couple of pounds below my personal target, so that would give me a little buffer!

    Here we go! I'm planning to use my "official WW" number every week, so 220.2#

    I’ll use my daily number as of the post, which is 199.4.

    Checking in! Love this idea! Thanks for swinging by FB with the invite Al. I'm in, weighed this a.m., and am not sharing my number 🤦🏼‍♀️.

    So many regrets but they don't help, so, putting that aside and moving forward. I would really like to reach goal this year and work maintenance. But wishing and hoping aren't getting me there, so I committed to making progress with baby steps.

    This week, track, stay w/in DPs, and do arm exercises. I'd planned a short walk each day to start too, but I'm sick, and this is what I can handle, so onward.

    We got this!

    I weighed in on Sunday. It was about where I expected but still an ugly number.

    I'm toying with the idea of not doing weekly weigh-ins for awhile - - perhaps during the entire challenge. I've done this before but not had a good plan around an end-date. It was really useful short-term. Doing this helps me focus on my BEHAVIORS versus RESULTS. After all these years, the scale can still p$$! me off or make me too happy. I know that if I track my food and move more, the results will come . . . in time. Right now, I'm not sure I want the scale interfering with that knowledge.

    Emmie, do whatever is going to WORK for YOU!

    Thanks Al! I should have clarified. I plan to be in the Challenge, I just may not know weekly scale progress. However, I WILL report weekly "behavioral" progress.

    Well . . . I busted out my official WW "weigh-in outfit" and made my way to a studio today to get an official starting weight for this challenge. I'm not going to follow the "new" WW plan or even put the app back on my phone, but I am going to use the studio for my weigh-ins. I'm thinking I'll weigh-in every 4-6 weeks for this challenge.

    At least that's my current thinking.

    As I said, I did math on Wednesday (because of the icy conditions). As I'm a daily weigher I looked up the last time I was that "at home" number, and then looked up what I weighed at WW, and Voila! saw I was down 1.6#.

    I guess I wasn't sure how this would look...are we checking in daily? Weekly? Here or on the weigh-in thread?

    I'm participating.

    My 12/31/2021 weight was 137.6, and that's what I'm using as my start weight. I like to report my weight on Fridays, so on 1/7/2002 I was 137.4: a whopping 0.2 pound loss! Go me!

    But seriously, I've got a plan and I've been sticking to it so far. I've limited alcohol to the weekend, and have "allowed" myself air-popped popcorn with a bit of butter-flavored Pam and salt as my weekday evening snack (no alcohol). So far so good. While I haven't really started showing a significant loss on the scale, it seems that it often takes a couple of weeks (or more) for the losses to start showing up. If the scale doesn't start moving soon, I may have to make some adjustments.
