Thanks for the new thread gardenerjoy. I really feel like these daily check in threads are an integral part of my success.

August GW: 226.0 - this goal will keep me on track for my end of year goal

Thanks for opening up the thread gardenerjoy! I'm gonna update my starting weight tomorrow but wanted to get my chart ready My goal for August is to lose 3 lbs! Since last month I set it at 2, I figured I'd push myself a little more this month. Ideally I want to be losing a pound a week, but since I'm still pretty fresh from my restart I wanted to give myself some wiggle room.

Updating this post now that we have done our final weigh-ins for July! I just barely broke even to show a small loss last month due to a large vacation gain, so I'm hoping I will be successful in hitting my goal in August. That being said, I'm going to focus on my next mini goal right now, since it is only 6.8 lbs away -- hitting 162 lbs will put me right at the beginning of a "Normal" BMI for the first time in my adult life -- probably since the 2nd grade, honestly -- so I think it's a great goal to set for this round.


Here's to us all having a successful month this month...good luck, everyone!

CW: 113.5

Ok, i'm in. I'm going to aim for a weight band this month and that's going a bit tighter than just staying under my upper long term target.
I don't want to lose any more (I was down to 111.5 a couple of days ago, so the lower target of 112 is sort of where I am already), and I don't think I would see it as a successful month if I ended up right back at my long term target of 119, so I will be happy at the end of August if i'm between 112-117. So this is really the first time that i'm not accepting a loss as being successful either.

Thanks again, gardenerjoy, for running these challenges!

My goal will be 2.5 pounds again.

I'm up a full pound from yesterday, but I think that's just water/food weight from a restaurant meal I had last night. I'll use whatever tomorrow's weight is as my SW in the challenge.

Update:
SW - 138.6
GW - 136.1


I'm moving halfway across the country next week, and starting a new job and academic program. So it'll likely take me a while to find my new routine. I hope my new scale won't be too off from my old one. Silly concern in the grand scheme of things, but I've been wondering about that lately.

Good luck, everyone!

Hey everyone! Excited to start this month with you!

My final weight for July and my starting weight for this August challenge is 185.3 lbs. I think because of the "Final Days" section of the previous month it's a little higher than it could've been if I had a whole week of weights to use (since I use averages), but I'm not going to let that deter me. Today I weigh 184.6 lbs and I hope to continue to see a downward trend and average my weight for week one to be 184...maybe even 183 lbs if I can be really good! On the horizon I have a trip to New Jersey from the 16th - 19th to surprise a friend of mine who has no idea I'm coming. I don't think I'll be able to workout when I'm there + I'm sure we'll be indulgent, so I need to make sure to be as good as I can be.

Last night I went to see a Shakespeare play with a twist, they "casually rehearse" and if they need to call for a line then everyone has to drink. It's both a well put together show plus a lot of comedy involved with audience participation. They put on The Tempest and gave us water guns to use, which we did, since they host it at a brewery so people get nice and drunk! Including some of the cast. Good times. I only had one soda, a guava soda in a bottle, then I switched to water. When we got home husband was in Snacknarok mode (thanks ophelia!) and I was SO CLOSE to joining him, but I just went to bed and I'm so glad I did because seeing that 184.6 lbs was a relief!

My current weight is 169 and I am aiming at 165 this month, becase I realize my body does not work as fast as others.

Setting an unrealistic goal didn't work that well for me last month -- although, at least I checked in a bit more often than setting no goal at all! I'll set a realistic goal and hope to reach it so that I can set a bonus goal later this month.

August goal: -1 kg (reach 99.4 kgs)

1: 100.4

I'm in again. I forgot to weigh this morning. So I'm going by what I assume is my weight based on yesterday.

Goal - 4 lbs

SW: 144.0
GW: 140.0

I am starting another dietbet in a few days - they definitely help keep me motivated.
