Everyone is welcome to join!

Here's how it works:

Post your starting weight (sw) and your goal weight (gw).
Come back anytime to update with your current weight (cw).
The first person to reach their 5 pound loss wins!
That person then starts a new thread for the next 5 pound challenge!

Have fun and good luck!!

Cw: 331.8
Gw: 326.8

This is nothing short of a miracle lol. I gained steady for two weeks, even though I worked my butt off and ate on plan. The scale must if been catching up with me this week.

I'm wondering if ovulation has something to do with it. My fiancÚ and I are trying to conceive again and I've noticed my body is holding on to things during that period. I know Tom does that, but could it have been ovulation? The body is a mysterious thing.

Congratulations on your win mountain mama!!! The body is indeed a mysterious thing. It is so frustrating when you do things OP and the scale refuses to acknowledge your work. Glad your perseverance paid off!

Sht: overland awaits you, my dear! Exciting!!!

Hey Mountain Mama, I have been too busy to congratulate you. So sorry! I am very happy that you whooshed after worrying so much. Happy dancing scale!

I would not discard ovulation as a physical culprit (I feel the pinch in my ovaries when it happens and my body feels different), but it could also be the stress from trying to conceive. Good luck with everything!

I'll catch you all in the next 5 lbs challenge.

I need to move my butt this week... I need to stop hovering where I am and bust through the 330s!!!
