Hey ladies.. I hope so much that I made my goal. I am afraid I probably fell a little short. We will see tomorrow..I hope everyone is doing great! I've been so busy trying to get my Valentines day projects done. I finally finished. Cross my fingers for tomorrow!

New Year's Resolution: Get my blood sugar level and cholesterol under control and into a healthy range, with or without medication.

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is: Keep a food journal, not snack at work, and walk at least 20 minutes 5 days a week.

Week one (ends Jan 5th): <didn't start until the 7th>
Week two (ends Jan 12th): Food journal kept, no snacking at work, and walked every day--17-40 minutes
Week three (ends Jan 19th): Food journal kept, adjusted to planned snacking at work, and walked every day--17-40 minutes
Week four (ends Jan 26th): Food journal kept, limited to planned snacking at work, and walked 6 days out of 7--16-45 minutes
Week five (ends Feb 2nd): Food journal kept, limited to planned snacking at work, and walked 5 days out of 7--16-45 minutes, 2 days of 30DS
Week six (ends Feb 9th): Food journal kept, limited to planned snacking at work, and walked 4 days out of 7--16-45 minutes, 3 days of 30DS (plus spontaneous walking)
Week seven (ends Feb 14th): Food journal kept, limited to planned snacking at work, and walked 4 days out of 7--30-60 minutes and lots of spontaneous walking on my weekend away.

As of this morning, I'm down 12.2 pounds since January 7th. I'm thrilled with my challenge results! On to April Fool's Day! (I'm not updating my ticker until I stay there a day or two)

I squeezed out a final .6 lb to finish up with a total of 15.6 lbs since January 6. Another 1.6 lbs to get into the 230s would have been fun but I can't be anything but happy with how far I've come so far.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in the April Fools Day challenge!!

New Year's Resolution: By December 31st, 2013, I want to be back in Onederland and at a new low (under 198.8).

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is to be 245 or below (lose 12+ lbs) in the 230's.

Starting weight: 257

Week one (ends Jan 5th): 257 (restart 1/6/13)
Week two (ends Jan 12th): 251.2
Week three (ends Jan 19th): 246.2
Week four (ends Jan 26th): 244.6
Week five (ends Feb 2nd): 242.0
Week six (ends Feb 9th): 242.0
Week seven (ends Feb 14th): 241.4

Week three (ends Feb 2nd): 205.4

Great success stories on this challenge, that's great to see! I did not reach my goal, despite a very honest effort. I can't beat myself up over it, it won't help me in the long run, but I am not happy about my results.

I made it to my goal of 220!!! Well technically I weighed in at 220.25 last night, but I'm in the middle of TOM and had eaten a late lunch . . . plus I've been rounding to the nearest whole pound lately so I don't make myself get too crazY. Even though explaining all of this probably makes me so anyway.

I figure another 5 pounds or so may be enough, so I would just love to be able to wear the shirt for a fancy Valentine's Day dinner! If I make it I'll post a photo here!
Regardless, I think I'm ready for the orange shirt, and since I said I'd post a photo . . .

The first photo was this past summer, the second is from this morning. I've been wanting to be able to wear this shirt comfortably in public for ages now; it had been a gift from my aunt last year but was way too small (I don't have any photos of how ridiculously small it was on me when I first got it, since I could barely even get it on then).

I loved this challenge! It's still pretty surreal to me that I've made it to the magical number of 220, which seemed unattainable to me for many, many years. Why has it been my magical number? I've hit the 220's twice in my life but have never managed to get anywhere under. I don't think it's quite hit me yet that I've come this far with no signs of slowing down.

Bring on the next challenge.

New Year's Resolution: By December 31st, 2013, I want to be 199lbs.

From New Year's to Valentine's Day, my resolution is to lose 20 pounds. *2/2 Edit: TOM is starting, so I will aim for 26lbs. Looking for 258.8!

Week one (ends Jan 5th): 279.4
Week two (ends Jan 12th): 276.2

Killed it! Woohoo!!! 28.8lbs. lost during this challenge! Only aiming for half that in the next challenge as a 9 day vacation is going to complicate things... Congrats everyone and I'll see you over in the new challenge thread!

You folks have done so well. Awesome.

I have lost 2 pounds. But, it's better than going up.

Carry on!

I did not make my original goal, but I ended up with a loss of 12.6 so I am still happy with the results. I am going to do much better on the April 1st Challenge!
