# January 2023 Monthly WL Challenge

Posts: 725 Member
Welcome to our new members!

If you are new and want to join in, by all means, please do - we love to celebrate those losses with you! This is the standard format we try to use for these threads:

Name: (if you'd like to share)

My Numbers:
SW: Starting weight before you lost anything.
CW: Current weight at the beginning of the challenge.
GW: Goal weight for the month (what you would like to weigh at the end of the monthly challenge) Try to keep it realistic and SAFE!
LTGW: Lifetime goal weight ( What you would like to weigh at the end of your weight loss journey)

Weigh-ins: What days you will weigh-in; for example, Mondays
1/1/24 = (Fill out after each weigh-in.)
1/8/24
1/15/24
1/12/24
1/29/24 (final weigh in for the month)
Total WL/G for the month= total weight lost or gained for the month

It was also suggested that we could track our measurements at the beginning of each month to see how we do there, so feel free to add those too this month!

My first 2 weigh-ins for January might be a bit underwhelming thanks to Mother Nature, but it will all even out eventually, it's all about staying on track. ☺
I'm also checking my measurements, and I will try on a pair of goal jeans at the middle and end of the month to check my progress!
Happy New Year everyone, let's kick some butt!

I'm exactly 100 lbs away from my ultimate goal weight 🌟 Next mini goal is 10% of SW lost (-26 lbs) at 237 lbs. Maybe I'll make it there this month ☺️

I guess my body was ready to drop some weight this week 😳 Well I'm officially 30 lbs down from my start weight. I bought a few XL clothes and most of them fit but some don't, which I'll take bc I just bought 2-3X clothes in November. Most of my old clothes are M-L shirts and 10-14 pants so I'll have a lot to wear at 190ish lbs and lower, which will be a relief to not keep buying new clothes. I forgot how expensive clothes are, even from target and walmart 😣

It's been a rough month for me otherwise so I'll take this victory for sure, my mental health has not been good and it's manifested in physical pain lately. Hopefully next month will be better health-wise.
