Default DAY ONE - The Race Weigh In

Here we are. The official start of our race to 5lbs. I'll start with my weight.

114lbs.

Yes, that's up from my ticker...I know. I refuse to move the numbers in my ticker UP so I'll just have to get back to 113 really quick.

157 lbs

I am up 3 pounds from last week, largely due to poor eating habits, but I suspect TOM is preparing to visit as well. Is it fair to record my starting weight at 157 when it might largely have to do with TOM? Oh well, I guess so. Five pounds will still take me lower then what I was before this 3 pound gain today. I will change my ticker tomorrow. Gotta go!

Hi everyone,
I just started back here today but i would love to join this challenge.
I'll weigh myself in the morning. I have not weighed myself in about a month so if you hear a scream about 5am...that's me

I'm in! I was at 138.0 this morning. I suspect that some of that is water retention, but that's what the scale said so that's what I'm going with. 133.0 would be heavenly. That's the exact amount I weighed on the day I got pregnant with my (now 2 yr old) daughter, so reaching it again will be a milestone.

I'm in too. Weight is up from 138 last week - bad week, I guess.

I'm 141.4, so goal is 136.4. Interesting that many of us are right around the same weight right now (140-ish or so).

Good luck all!

Well, I weighed in this morning at 154! So, my 5 pounds will finally put me in the 140s! 149, here I come!

PS~Clykk, We've got the same starting weight Ready to race to 149?

Azure We WERE at the same starting weight, but I weighed in 3 pounds heavier this morning!!! I feel like I have all the symptoms of TOM approaching, feel bloated, bumping into things right and left, irritable, quiet...BUT I looked back on my thread and see it has only been 2 weeks since TOM visited last, so I guess I can't blame this on TOM. I have been eating more crap then usual and some of that being chips, so I suppose I have created my own bloating process. Time will tell. I usually w/i on Monday mornings, so I am giving myself this one more day to see if the scale will make a dip before I change my ticker back!

Default Good news!

I w/i this morning which is my usual day of the week to w/i and I am back to 154 lbs. Phew!!!! So...to be fair, I am starting this challenge at 154 lbs, instead of the 157 I registered on the scale yesterday. I am amazed at how the scale can fluctuate!!!

So, Azure, THE RACE IS ON!!

I am scheduled to eat only fruit today. My eating program has an All-Fruit Day twice a month. This challenge should help me stick to it today!
