Here are the rules : The fastest to shed 2 % of their body weight wins. To calculate 2 % just multiply .02 with your body weight and round off to the nearest .2 lbs.

Hey, gals! I have weighed myself for the first time in days this morning and it was 147.4 lbs. TOM is coming and I am so stressed that I have been constipated. I have been HUNGRY and CRAVING like crazy too.

So...

SW : 147.2 lbs
GW : 144.2 lbs which is higher than my lowest weight. :-<

Congrats, Sum, and hello to the 140's and kudos to Only Believefor her progress and perseverance.

Congrats on winning the prior challenge, Sum!

I'm in again (my scale is odd...it records 1/4 and 1/2 pounds, so I will round to the nearest 1/4 pound):

SW: 142.75
2% (rounded) = 2.75
GW = 140.00

SuperHeroTeacher - did you celebrate teacher day yesterday? I kept telling myself that I should receive virtual flowers by my students, but alas not. **kidding**

Does your scale give you odd numbers?

--------------------------------

Dropped one pound which I am happy about but still above my weight on October 2nd (146 lbs) and my lowest on 09/27/13 (143.4 lbs) .

SW : 147.2 lbs
CW : 146.2 lbs
GW : 144.2 lbs

Had sushi night and all that sodium showed up on my scale this morning. Amazing how body reacts to salt. My rings feel super tight. Time for some tea.

I'm still headed the wrong way too. Too many issues, stress, new job, no time, bad choices...need to remember I alone am in charge of my choices!

I didn't even know it was teacher day yesterday, or I WOULD have celebrated - LOL! Actually I did have dinner out with a teacher friend, so maybe we subconsciously celebrated :D

And this is what actually sticking to plan looks like:

Sw: 215.8
2% = 4.3
CW: 211.6!!! Still far from my low of 203.8 just a few weeks ago, but moving the right direction...
Gw: 211.5
