Yesterday I weighed 200.4, but too much sodium pushed me up to a start weight of 201.4, My goal weight by month's end is 194.0. I need to lose 7.4 lb.s

1 201.4
2 200.0 SO CLOSE to 2 major achievements: ONE-derland and 50 lb. loss!
3 199.4
4 199.6 No! You are moving in the wrong direction!
5 199.2
6 DNW
7 199.8 retaining fluid
8 199.2 (-2.2)
9 197.6 WOOSH!
10 197.2 (-4.2)
11 198.0
12 197.6
13 DNW
14 198.0
15 197.2
16 197.0 (-4.4)
17 197.0
18 197.6
19 197.4 so sick of this! my body thinks it's supposed to maintain weight on 1200 calories and daily exercise?
20 196.4 FINALLY! (-5 lbs) at this rate I won't meet my set goal, losing 1 lb. every 10 days!!!
21 197.4 Back up to what my body wants to weigh...sigh. I was careless yesterday.
22 196.8
23 196.0 back on plan! (-5.4)
24 DNW (ugh...sick with upper respiratory infection)
25 194.6 WOOSH! Almost makes sore throat, runny nose, cough, body aches worth it?) (-6.8)
26 194.4
27 DNW
28 DNW
29 194.2
30 DNW
31 194.8 Why do I ALWAYs gain right at the end of the month/challenge? I was sick with a cold then had sick grandkids in my care for 2 days...haven't been able to work out. So my ending weight means I lost a total of 6.6 lbs. not bad, but I did not meet my goal for the first time since July! Oh, well. Looking at the big picture makes me happy!

Good morning all!!! Did not make goal last month (5pounds) so shooting for 5 pounds this month. I don't post much except daily weigh-in but I read everything. Love that this is such an active thread.

Good luck to all with your goals this month

Woo hoo! Time to lose some pounds. I don't have a lot of time for personals today as my husband and I took today off to work around the house, so I'll write more tomorrow. Good luck, everyone!

My goal is to lose 6 pounds this month.

10/1: 200.4

yesterday's weigh-in: 81.8kg (180.3)
yesterday's calories: 1819
yesterday's exercise: --
today's weigh-in: 82.2kg (181.2lbs)
Change: + 0.4kg (+0.9lbs)

Good morning you guys,
this is my first challenge so I'm hoping I'm doing this right.

A short introduction: I'm 22, I go to School in Germany and I've actively been losing weight since January.
I usually only weigh-in every 4-6 weeks at my parents' house, but I didn't lose anything since the beginning of August so I hope checking my weight daily will help me understand that a little better.
Although I already know why I was eating too much, haha The only reason why I didn't gain was because I picked up running, and I completed my first 10k on Sunday go me.
Anyways, I had my wisdom teeth pulled on Monday, so I can't exercise for 2 weeks (also can't blow my nose :P), so considering I won't have any burn, my goal for October is to get my eating back on track.

I hope I didn't overshare just now
everybody have a great day!! And of course, a successful month.

I had a visit from the baby whoosh fairy and my scales moved down 0.75 lb this morning. That was a pleasant surprise!

SW (9/30): 143.50
10/1: 143.50
10/2: 142.75

GW (10/31): 139.00

Turtle: Great way to start the month!

Jacqui: Way to go, getting to 188! Can we now agree that the 190’s are a thing of the past?

Joy: Good luck with today’s weigh-in.

Emme, cincorn & MrsKevin: You guys are all SO close to ONEderland. We’re going to have lots to celebrate this month!

Rhiko: Terrific start to October!

boatingmommy: Great job on the exercise front…not to worry about TOM…a nice whoosh will follow.

183StGB: Great introduction! I’m 55 and I had one of my wisdom teeth removed about 8 months ago. That was not fun, so I sympathize with your situation. On the plus side, I was in too much pain to eat much other than soup for about a week…so perhaps that will help to get your eating back on track.

mygirl, gatorgirl, mzshaunna, Woodstock, VickiN , nitrus and MrsKevin: Welcome and good luck in meeting your October goals!
