Happy new year to you as well, Jane!

Well done on the lower weight. I did not manage that myself. However, I have found my motivation and am ready to start back with my full program with my whole body and soul!

Well I am not doing well but need to get remotivated once again. Sounds like your doing well and keep up the good job. I need to get back off at least 10 pounds for sure and then another 20 to reach 200.

Trying to get caught up from being out of town. Welcome to the challenge JCEDIT89, CLIFFNGEE and RENYEL. I look forward to hearing of your success. Samoder - I like the idea of measurements - I haven't done that for awhile.

First weight in from teh start of the challenge wasn't quite as low as I wanted, but that was taking into consideration I was out of town with someone else cooking and then a road trip to get home, which I did better at than I usually do, but still had some unhealthy step. Baby steps, baby steps.

We are 7 weeks away from December 31st. Many people make their New Year Resolutions on Jan 1st. I'm wanting to celebrate reaching a goal on January 1st. I am going to lose 5% (about 11 pounds) in these weeks. Who wants to join? Just post your current weight - your goal weight of 5% less and then come back on here every Friday to put your current weight. Good luck everyone!

What an excellent idea!

We are 7 weeks away from December 31st. Many people make their New Year Resolutions on Jan 1st. I'm wanting to celebrate reaching a goal on January 1st. I am going to lose 5% (about 11 pounds) in these weeks. Who wants to join? Just post your current weight - your goal weight of 5% less and then come back on here every Friday to put your current weight. Good luck everyone!
