Hi Joy. November was not a successful month for me. December will be hard too with vacation & the holidays, so Iím not setting a monthly goalÖ Iím going to try to just maintain by the end of the month. I know there will be ups & downs, but hereís hoping there are more downs than ups.

My starting weight is better than I expected. Like Wendy, I'm not going to set a target for December except to keep showing up!

December goal: Weigh 20x

1: 87.95; 1/20

I'll join again please.

start: 15st 13lb / 223lb
target: 15st 10lb / 220lb
target loss: 3lb

as per Joy's opening post, some more intentionality required by me this month. last month I was working funny hours which makes tracking meals harder, but really what put me off track was not putting the effort in.

I have some time off over Xmas/NY so things should be a bit calmer so I'll be able to be a bit more active which I definitely haven't been over the last couple of months.

good luck everyone!

Hi, everyone. I'd like to join in, too.

My goal for this month is to lose 7 pounds. It's been more than a year since I've been below 260, so that's where is like to start!
