    I'm in. I'm late so I have to lose 74.0 grams a day. That's on the high side for me, let's see if it's possible. Today I weighed 87.7 kg. If I achieve the shortened equivalent (75 instead of 92 days) of 15 pounds I'll post the Austin Powers 'Yeah Baby' image to celebrate.

    SW: 234.7
    CW: 233.0
    GW: 219.9

    Nov. 3--234.7
    Nov. 10--232.5 (-2.2)
    Nov. 17--233.0 (-1.7)

    Even though I went up a little from last week, I had a great week. I went out to lunch twice over the weekend and even though I ate at maintenance, I was still up almost 2lbs due to water retention and the extra food.

    The great thing is that (1) for the past week I have tracked all my food and (2) I was able to get back to my regular eating as soon as the weekend was over. As I am working on building new habits and working on consistency, this week has been great, and I expect the rest of the weight to be gone by this weekend.

    Hi all! I would love to join this challenge. I have 15 - 20 pounds of weight to lose since having a baby nine months ago. Prior to the pregnancy, I used MFP for years to help me maintain a 50 pound weight loss. I had a major backslide in my eating during the pregnancy: I got used to eating whatever I wanted, and I stopped paying attention to quantity. Now I'm hoping to get back to a healthier lifestyle.
