I like the idea of having a hard target number to focus on through the holidays.

I'm going to aim for 5 pounds, that's a little less than what I typically lose each month but there are some tricky days in this period so it sounds reasonable. And anything less feels like I'm slacking on my expectations, so I'll reach for 5 (and I'll be gentle with myself if I fall a little short)

SW : 210.4
GW : 205.4

Welcome TrishThayer!!

Hi Staja and Sarah!!!

Happy Friday - Happy day after!!!

Enjoyed turkey, gravy, green bean casserole and sweet potato yesterday!! Bypassed potatoes and stuffing as well as dessert!! Were my portions bigger? Absolutely - so there is nothing new to report!! And I am ok with it because I don't feel like I derailed myself - I enjoyed the day without completely losing myself. (Of course, I loved the sweet potato...then my niece told me about the sugar and maple syrup in the recipe!!!)

My mom is staying with us for a few days - she watches carbs and sugars because of her diabetes - and she made me realize the 100 calorie greek yogurt I'm buying may not be the best choice - I think I need to switch to totally plain yogurt if I want to really add it in....and I do. I like the individual servings because it helps me control what a serving looks like....and portions continue to rule my world!!

Wishing everyone an on plan and downdowndown day!!

Lulu: Sounds like you had a wonderful day yesterday!

I "ran" our town's 5k in the harbor yesterday morning and then we had a lovely dinner with over 50 of my boyfriend's family. As far as food goes, I'm actually really picky about eating things other people make, so I wasn't as crazy as I could have been. And now I'm refreshed for the holiday season (and just need to bring myself to toss the rest of the lemon cream cheese frosting in the fridge!)

SW:218.8
11/29: 217.8
GW: 215.8 - 213.8 (but, I'm happy with lower than 218!)

I tend not to do well in a challenge. Funny I can challenge myself and it works but to do a challenge with others for some reason my brain reneges! I'm going to give it a try though. If I disappear you will know why.

Count me in for the challenge. My goal is seven pounds. My weight is up a couple of pounds and I want to get back under 145.

I've been eating primal and intend to continue, with my eye on the carbs.

Good luck everyone!

Welcome Timlin and Calee!!

Timlin - This thread really is just a place to keep yourself accountable to yourself - and sometimes that is "challenging" enough!!

Calee - my weight is up two pounds after Thursday and Friday - I hate to admit that but Thanksgiving and Thai food that ended up being a Chinese buffet - well what can I expect - back on track - portions and low carb for me!!

Staja - Awesome on the 5K!! I don't think I'll ever run anything!!

True Confession: I really need to do some upper body strength training!! My husband lifts weight every day and baby girl does too!! He devised a weighted bucket on a pulley system! Well everyone including my mother can easily move the bucket at a certain weight except for me!! My 74 year old mom has great strength because of water aerobics which she does everyday!! Ugh!! What a reality check!!

I'll join in here! I am not really giving myself a goal for December other than no gains. I am new to Atkins, restarting my first week of Induction after the holiday so I don't really know what to expect with everything.

11/28 - 247.4
11/29 - 251.6
11/30 - 249.4
