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!!!

Funny how a few of us went up a bunch in the last 2 days? What's up with that? Does it all even out? People lose and other people gain it? lololol too weird... Well I hope SuperHero and New Leaf that we get rid of the "extra" :) and YEAH for you Jennifer,.. getting into the next decade! Way to go!!! and you TOO Robsia!!

Thanks! It's a quote I stumbled across on Pinterest, and it just felt so "me" - I'm 5'2" and by far the shortest in my family, so I've always just felt scrappy :D

Great minds think alike :D. Glad to know I'm not the only one who skips posting here if the gain is too high ;)

We will get past this! Ups and downs are inevitable when we weigh daily, it's the long-term trend that matters! Keep fighting the good fight newleaf and wannaskipandlaugh!

Meh - think I'm going to have to bow out of this one. I had a surgical procedure with GA yesterday and I'm up 5 lb today.

I did look into it and apparently weight gain due to fluid retention is a common side effect of surgery, but it wasn't nice to see 153 on the scale again!!

So I'm going to be gentle on myself for a while and back on the diet when I feel back to normal.
