Congrats, Staja!

My weight has been fluctuating (up) all week, but I guess that's good for today's new challenge (up a pound from the starting weight last challenge)

Impressive win Staja. Kudos! You must be so excited.

I'm still having a tough time getting rolling this time. I'm having mega fluid retention.

SW 148.8. Which at least is lower than 149.6 last week

Thanks for keeping me in the game and accountable.

I was down another pound today to 172. I started the last challenge at 175, so I am dropping. Slowly, but it is going down.

I am finally going to join this one. My weight is up and down a bit this week, but keeps trending lower. Was really hoping to lose 6 pounds before Thanksgiving (and another 6 pounds by Christmas). Maybe this challenge will keep me motivated :)

Slightly up, and I'll take it! I had a mini binge last night (~500 cals over target), but with exercise, luck, water, and magic there won't be any lasting damage. :D

Anyway, off to burn some of those calories by cleaning my house. My nephew (and sis & bil) will be here today, and I don't want them to be horrified by the squalor I live in!

Wow great weekend effort Sarah!! Keep it up!

I realize how badly I needed this challenge. I have had nothing for carbs except veggie carbs and I have not lost a thing. It awakens me to how very careful I have to be at this stage of my life.

Tightening the strings even tighter today.

We are off on a trip to Normandy for the rest of the week. I bought a travel scale and it weighs from 0.6 to 2.0 pounds lower than my regular scale, so I'll use the 2.0 adjustment on the trip. Hoping I have good internet access but if not no big deal I'll report on my return.

There's a small part of me that wishes I could just work all day, every day, because I'm more compliant with my WOE when I'm not at home! That being said, hooray for staying the same.

Also, my exercise bike should be delivered today - after some deliberation, I've decided to give up the gym membership in favor of working out at home and I'm pretty excited!
