Everyone is welcome to join in this challenge!

Here's how it works:
Post your starting weight (SW) and your goal weight (GW).
Come back any time to update with your current weight (CW).
The first person to reach their 5lb goal is the winner!
That person then starts a new thread for the next 5 pound challenge.

Have fun and good luck!!!

Yeah, but you've seen me bounce around between 155 - 159 for how long now? Time to finally break through the (mental) 155 barrier. I'm recommitted!

Awww, you guys are such cheerleaders -- thanks! Hopefully I can get to 153 soon... Ate at purported maintenance calories today rather than at a deficit, so we'll see what tomorrow brings.

OH It is so good to see the goal as being closer now instead of miles away.. :) HAPPY CAMPER HERE!! That is the sign flashing above my head today. Can't wait to skip (maybe 20 more lbs LOL)

Newleaf... Still there... so its real!!!

Newleaf... Still there... so its real!!!

Yeah, 2 meals out and some very careful calorie counting yesterday put me a tiny bit under what the calculators say maintenance would be, and voila, I was down 0.2. Amazing stuff, this calorie counting. Not sure why I didn't embrace it earlier, but it has been a great tool to re-engage me for these last pesky pounds.

You will be skipping in no time, I'm sure!
