    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
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT (FROM Oct 31): 197.8
    CHALLENGE ENDING WEIGHT:



    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.

    11/30-196.2-(Trend Weight: 197.8)- I am happy to have lost 1.6 lbs this month. Traditionally in the fall and winter I gain 14 – 16 pounds!!!! Not doing THAT this year. It’s a promise I am making to myself!

    12/01-198.4-(Trend Weight: 197.8)- Starting the month on a bloat day and after travel. The cardiology appt went very well. I don’t have to go back for 6 months. The goal now is to do the cardiac rehab for 12 weeks, twice per week. Also, to work on lowering my cholesterol. Of course, losing weight always helps so the journey continues for a healthier lifestyle and a healthier heart.
