Woohoo! I'm in! Thanks Joy! Well, I've rounded back up to 183 this morning, and no telling which way it will fluctuate from here, so I'll use 183 as my starting weight. I want to lose 6 lbs. I seem to be on target with that amount, so I'll stick with it. I have a big mini-goal coming up, so I really hope November is kind to me and allows me to get there!

Rated and Mori, good to see you back! Hopefully we'll get many chickies returning (and where'd our rooster go?), along with some great new motivated and determined newbies!

I didn't quite make goal in October. I had set a goal of 7.4 lbs. and lost 6.6 lbs. which is not too shabby. I was almost there then I gained 0.6 lb. right at the end. I had a URI and had sick grandkids at home so I was complacent about staying on plan. This month I am going to set 5.8 lb.s as my goal which will put me at 189.0

My start weight is: 194.8
My goal weight for Nov. 30 is: 189.0
I want to lose: 5.8 lbs.

11-1 194.8
11-2 DNW
11-3 194.4
11-4 193.8 (-1.0)
11-5 193.4
11-6 194.0 NO! I ate a hamburger/fries in a moment of weakness.
11-7 193.2
11-8 194.0 Dang it! No reason for this that I know! Water weight?
11-9 193.2
11-10 193.6
11-11 191.8 So good to see you again WHOOSH FAIRY!
11-12 DNW
11-13 193.2 Monday's weigh-in a fluke?
11-14 192.8 (-2) The month is half gone and only down 2 lbs.
11-15 191.6 (3.2)
11-16 DNW
11-17 192.6
11-18 191.6
11-19 191.4
11-20 190.4 (-4.4)
11-21 189.2 (-5.6)
11-23 188.4 SMASHED my GOAL!!! (-6.4)
11-25 187.6 (-7.2)
11-30 188.8

Every month of these challenges I gain right at the end of the month and with thanksgiving it's very understandable! Still did okay and met my goal. Onward to december! My loss for November is 6 lbs. Goal of 5.8 met!

Despite a difficult month, I made my Halloween goal with a tenth of a pound to spare! So I am more than ready to keep the momentum going in November.

I'm in! November and December are going to have lower goals than I've done in the past because I have a lot more functions and have less control over what goes in the food. I'll probably ramp it back up in January. Plus this is getting harder the lower I get!!!

So 5 lbs for November

I am going to join here this November for the first time... I have lost close to 2.5 lbs only last month but I was very stressed last month that I couldnt stick to my plan well..

Its a new month and a new start.. So I am going to commit myself to stick to my plan in a much better fashion this month..

SW: 185.6
GW: 182 (Just -3.6)
Happy GW: 179 (move out of the 180s or touch 180 atleast... been in it for over a month now )

Thanks for starting this and hope this thread is really interactive.. I will come in sometime later and set up a format that I can fill in with the progress...

Happy losing everyone!

Count me in again too. I didn't make my goal in October, but I still lost, which was good. (My original goal for that first challenge was 11.6#--- err... no).

I'm going for around what I did loss in Oct, which was about 6 pounds.
SW: 195.2
GW: 189.2

Yuppers, mark me down for 6 pounds!!!

MrsKevin

And, once again I will be having just weekly weigh ins, not daily like some others. My starting weight as of Nov. 1 will be recorded tomorrow and continue on Thurs and/or end of the month, however that falls.
