@katbslim: well i'm in school full-time right now, so i focus more on a proper diet than exercise. I work 25+ hours a week as a server, so i try to use that as exercise. i live right next to a big housing addition, and for the last month or so i've been trying to work going on an hour long walk through there into my schedule. this week is the beginning of finals work though, so the next 2 weeks will be strictly focusing on that. so i will have to maintain a great diet. after December 14th though I will be on semester break for 3 weeks and able to focus on gym time and dieting which i am looking forward to! i lost 6-7 pounds this month though, so i'm hoping i can lose more in December with being able to focus on gym time the 2nd half of the month!

Are you doing a program or doing it yourself? How many calories do you eat a day?

I am in. November was successful, I lost 3.8 kg, but I'm starting off December going to a weekend long pig roast. I weighed in a 92.2kg this morning, but I'm sure by Sunday evening I'll be back at 93. My goal for the end of December is 90kg. I may reassess after I WI Monday morning.

SW 92.2kg
CW 92.2kg
GW 90kg

Good luck everyone!

You can do it, everyone! And I'm sure that with your success through November, you can get those pounds off in December, jrkessle!

I'm going to join in for this month. I didn't make my goal in November by two pounds, but I wasn't terribly far off! I'm shooting to lose 7 pounds, even though it's the tough month of December. We'll see...

@katbslim: I don't really do programs. I just focus on 40-60 minutes of cardio when I do go to the gym. I spent this summer working out and lost 15 pounds in 2 months, so I'm really hoping to recreate that loss during the month of December. I've also lost 18 pounds this semester I try my best to do 1200 calories a day, which I can do somewhat easily when I'm not working. But on a work day I give in to temptation for too easily, and I think that will be my number 1 goal for December: to work on not giving in to temptation and to only eat when I am hungry and when the food is beneficial to my body - not cookies and cakes, etc, just because they are convenient. That is honestly my biggest struggle right now.

My biggest struggle is also sweets. I LOVE chocolate, cake, cookies, candy, etc. So eating a sucker at night helps me to feel satisfied, but not overindulge. Good luck!
