    My name is Donna. I am 62 years old and I live in the Midwest of the US. I am 5’ 5” tall.

    CHALLENGE TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS GOAL: Total Loss of 15 pounds to land at 182.8

    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s

    Weight in blue makes me blue because it’s a gain. Weight in fuchsia pink makes me feel cheery because it’s a loss. Weight in black means no change.

    11/01-199.8-(Trend Weight: 200.2)- Was it the travel weight, the Halloween candy, or the 3 hours of sleep last night? Moving forward, but remembering in the Book of Psalms that it says in part “My life is continually in my hands……”

    11/07-198.8-(Trend Weight: 199.9)- I lost one full pound during Halloween week. I count that as a win.

    11/14-197.6-(Trend Weight: 199.1)- The scale hasn’t tipped this low since September so I feel like this is an opportunity. Travel tomorrow and Thursday. I’ve got to hang on to my progress!

    11/21-198.6-(Trend Weight: 198.7)- One month ago on 10/21 I weighed 201.8 with a trend weight of 200.4. I needed to look back because I was feeling defeated today even though the trend weight went down. I can see that I am making progress even though it is slow. I need to lose more than 2 pounds in a month but at least it is in the right direction! Thanksgiving week. That is a challenge for us all who celebrate this week.

    11/28-196.6-(Trend Weight: 197.9)- I lost 2 pounds during Thanksgiving week? That has got to be the first time in, like, EVER. I’m really trying 90% of the time. Clearly there is still room for growth but I’m proud that I managed to accomplish this! I can see that I won’t make my November goal because of all the bouncing back & forth, but I’m headed in the right direction.
