Default 2018 Full Year Challenge - Valentine's Day Challenge

Every year I've seen a challenge similar to this one but I haven't found one yet for 2018 so I thought I'd start one myself. I've always wanted to try a year-long challenge.

The 2018 Full Year Challenge runs for an entire year - Jan 1 to Dec 31. To make it easier for you, the challenge will be broken down into 8 mini challenges as follows (copied this from last year's challenge, hope that's okay):

Challenge 1: New Years Day to Valentine’s Day (January 1st to February 14th)
Challenge 2: Valentine’s Day to April Fools Day (February 14th to April 1st)
Challenge 3: April Fools Day to Mother's Day (April 1st to May 13th)
Challenge 4: Mother's Day to Independence Day (May 13th to July 4th)
Challenge 5: Independence Day to Labor Day (July 4th to September 3rd)
Challenge 6: Labor Day to Columbus Day (September 3rd to October 8th)
Challenge 7: Columbus Day to Thanksgiving Day (October 8th to November 22rd)
Challenge 8: Thanksgiving Day to New Years Eve (November 22rd to December 31st)

Weigh-in will be once a week, any day you choose. To join the challenge, copy the form below into a new post and then edit it throughout the challenge.

You can post as much as you need in order to keep yourself motivated and to check up on others. I'm shy so I tend not to post very often but you are welcome to post every day if you want.

Good luck, work hard and have fun! We can do this!!

I'm going to be on vacation during Valentine's Day but hopefully the hotel will have a scale I can use.

Valentine's Day Challenge

Challenge Begin Weight: 193.0 lbs
Challenge Goal Weight: 183.0 lbs (-10 lbs)
Challenge End Weight:

1/1: 193.0 lbs
1/8: 192.2 lbs (-0.6 lbs)
1/15: 192.0 lbs (-02. lbs, 9.0 lbs to go) - How in the heck did I lose weight this week!? I ate horribly all week, went out to eat (onion rings, cheese curds, bbq pork) on Saturday, then last night for the MN-NO game, I had BBQ wings, mozzy sticks, cookies and chocolate covered peanuts. Maybe it's because my heart rate was in fat burning mode for 3 hours - my Fitbit shows I just about had a heart attack during the last 5 min of the game. LOL!

Oh I like that one. I'm new to the forum and thought I might give it a go and hop on this all-year-train until I may reach my goal weight and hop off (or take another round, hopefully not).
Hope it's ok if I keep it as an ongoing post for more than just one of the challenges, keeping lists motivates me a lot

Several people have not checked in for the first weigh-in. I'm bumping this thread up to hopefully catch their attention!!

Just keep working on it Mara! Adjustments take time, and giving up won't help. We are here for you!
