Default 5 Pound Challenge #44

Here we go! It's challenge number 44!

Everyone is welcome, hop in at any time.

Here's what to do: We're out to lose 5 pounds. No matter where you're at in your weight loss, it's helpful to break down your loss into small goals like this. Just post your SW (starting weight) as of today, your CW (current weight) which is whenever you weigh in and your GW (goal weight) which is five pounds down from the day you joined in.

Weigh in whenever you like and come tell us about it! You can weigh in as often as you like - some of us do it everyday, some once or twice a week.

The first one to hit five pounds lost gets to start the next thread!

Let's do it!

Maybe, if there's no weight gain drama this time - just maybe I'll see the 140's on this challenge. Sweet.

I'm in!

I'm up a little bit, probably because I'm sick - which equals no exercise and eating salty foods to try to cut through the phlegm...I'm really trying to avoid having to go to the doc and get steroids...

Congrats FB!

I missed the last challenge due to a terrible cold. You sure you don't want those steroids Janal? I used the nasal steroid spray I have for allergies and I think it really helped.

sw: 166.5
cw: 166.5

Way to go FB!!
I am in and hope to break through this super slow motion weight loss. I guess it's better than gaining, though.

Oh, I'm sure I don't want the steroids that I'd have to get...I'm already on two inhaled steroids, a steroid nasal spray, and steroid eye drops...a lot of times when I get sick I have to take a bunch of prednisone to get over it - and prednisone is only helpful in gaining weight.
