    Nov 30, trend weight: 163.9 still not making sense, but all will be fine. Maybe because I’m pushing the hill climbs(?) IDK

    -4.7 lbs in 39 days

    53 days left

    So I’m going to shoot for 159.9 by Jan 31!!!

    I am delighted to be back in my normal BMI range. 24.6
    The next two months will be to get back into the 150’s to give myself a buffer (as I retain water in summer & I never want to be over normal BMI again.)

    SW: 234.7
    CW: 233.0
    GW: 219.9

    Nov. 3--234.7 (Total loss)
    Nov. 10--232.5 (-2.2)
    Nov. 17--233.0 (-1.7)
    Nov. 24--229.9 (-4.8) 1st Goal met :)
    Dec. 1--232.5 (-2.2)
    Dec. 8--233.0 (-1.7)

    Struggling with seeing the weight go up over the last 2 weeks even though I know I did not eat all those extra calories to justify the jump in weight. What I do know is that over the past 2 weeks I added a new workout program, which has caused more muscle soreness, and I have not been drinking enough water. While mentally I know those are probably the reasons for the jump in weight, it's still hard to see the jump on the scale, so I decided to take my measurements last week and hopefully I can see a change in measurements at the end of the month even if the scale doesn't show a change. I will just keep tracking and eat within my calorie levels, and make sure to increase my water and see how next week goes.

    @taxgirl1 Muscles weighs much more than fat and you are surely building muscle with your new routine. Yes it is hard to see the jump in the scale so maybe go 10 days instead of 7 to weigh yourself? Surely your body will adjust soon. Don't be discouraged. It sounds like you are doing so well!

    I am stuck but I certainly know why. I blame it on my new bread machine. I need to limit myself to one slice per day. It is just so damned delicious I can't help myself. I will be giving the next few loaves to neighbors and friends and stop making them just for us.

    @200Karen That guacamole Grinch is adorable! I am going to make that as well. How fun! Thank you for sharing.

    I bought a bread machine of all things. I am sure this is going to turn out badly for my waistline but I love fresh bread and the fact that it has no preservatives in it is a plus. The house smells heavenly as it is baking. I am giving fresh bread as gifts to the neighbors. Really, it could not be easier. The machine does all the work. It's been a lot of fun, trying new recipes.

    That sounds fun! It's always gratifying to make your own bread, etc. I wish I lived closer to you!!!

    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)-

    11/07-198.8-(Trend Weight: 199.9)-


    11/14-197.6-(Trend Weight: 199.1)-


    11/21-198.6-(Trend Weight: 198.7)-


    11/28-196.6-(Trend Weight: 197.9)-


    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!





    Nov Start: 197.8
    Nov Actual: 196.2
    Nov Goal: (5 pound loss) 192.8

    Cumulative Weight Loss so Far: 1.6 lbs. LOST


    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.

    12/05-197.8-(Trend Weight: 197.7)- It seems like I hover around the same pound or two for months, then finally see a nice little drop. My last substantial drop was when I dipped into Onederland. Now I seem to be staying there no matter what (yay) but not really making any lasting further progress again. Looking for my next real drop or whoosh. They need to come faster!


    12/12-198.2-(Trend Weight: 197.9)- It has been a week full of travel due to medical issues. Today will be my first true day of cardiac rehab (travel again.) I will be going 2x per week. Praying roads won’t be icy on my days. Praying also that the extra activity will help me all around.

    Hello, I hope you all are doing well!

    11/1 195.8
    11/8 192.6 (3.2 lb loss )
    11/15 195.6 what the heck! .2 lb loss from 11/1
    Forgot to update my challenge a few weeks..
    12/6 190.4 (5.2 lb loss this challenge)
    12/13 191.4 (lowest weight this week was 189.4 though… 😀)

    I am going back and forth with the same couple pounds. My weight loss has been slowing for sure, but I’m visibly smaller, a shirt that was snug on my hips last week was loose yesterday.

    Just keep going! 💪

    Nov 22 86.6kg 190.9 lbs (Down 0.9kg 2lbs - 1.6kg 3.5lbs in total this challenge)

    Nov 29 86.3kg 190.2 lbs (Down 0.3kg 0.7lbs - 1.9kg 4.2lbs in total this challenge)

    Dec 6th 86.1kg 189.8lbs (Down 0.2 kg 0.4lbs - 2.1kg 4.6lbs in total this challenge)

    Dec 13th 86.1kg 189.8lbs (Down 0.0 kg 0.00lbs - 2.1kg 4.6lbs in total this challenge)
