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!!

Thanks Stay Puft. I hope I keep it. It was a great drop from yesterday, but yesterdays weight had been pretty much hanging around for days so maybe I will hang on to this.
Thanks love2b150

Thanks Matisse:). I started June 15th at 369.2--- I'm finally on track with lots of thanks to everyone's support!
I will lose it this time and I will not gain it back like I've done in the past!
The 130s for you! That's awesome- isn't it crazy how motivational a new decade can be?!

Another drop for me. It's strange how I will go for days with the scale not moving much then BAM the numbers start falling. I weigh in several more times to make sure and sometimes pick it up, look under it and wonder if it's playing a joke on me.... Sometimes it seems so unreal. 247.. I think I'm dreaming.

Matisse, we need to hit those new decades this month. Then we will dance! :carrot:

Only Believe, I have that same weight loss going on I think. I'll bounce around number wise for a few days then bam a weight loss. Been bouncing for 3 days now. Looking back the last 2 Fridays have been good to me so I'm crossing my fingers for tomorrow.

You and me both!

Weighing is the first thing I do in the morning after I pee. I was half asleep in the last three days and wondering if I was dreaming the scale.

Mountain Mama - I agree. A new decade is really motivating. You've done a really great job since June. Big kudos.

The right direction! Yay!
All time low for this time around! Going to get as healthy as possible for baby number 2. So worried about a second miscarriage but feeling good, whatever its worth:)

Puft: I understand your frustration- been fighting with it myself. It will go down, maybe shock your system somehow?
