Down 30 lbs on this challenge....what?

I mentally calculated 29.6 pounds.

Congratulations on a fantastic accomplishment!

Well, thank you. As I said before, it's my best SUMMER/XMAS for many seasons here from November to January. (Yes, readers, Australia's seasons are 'inverted'. We are mid-summer right now.)

I wanted to achieve that 34 pound loss in the period. It was very good to go close.

The success is borne out by an old Wayne Gretzky story.

A journalist (years ago) said to Gretzky (in his prime), "Geez, Wayne, you have an average 4.7 shots on goal for each goal you score. That's a lot of wasted shots."

Gretzky said: "Yeah, and I never score any goals from the shots I don't take."

That's how I feel about missing my 304 target ... I went way closer to this very target than any targets I'd previously set in other years.

You just posted one of my all time favorite quotes! I told that to my husband years ago, and he still uses it on my today!! Love it.

Final weigh in is 220. Didn’t come close to my goal for this challenge, but at least it’s heading in the right direction. Thanks for running this challenge!

Forgot to post yesterday, 215!! Goal was 220. Next goal- get below 200 which i have not seen in probably 20 years!!!

Thank you so much Kel for running this. It is so helpful to have accountability friends who understand the challenges with this process, especially since I am still learning myself!

Looking forward to a new challenge to stay on course!

Whoops, I never got my final weight in for this challenge last night. Yesterday I saw 158 on the scale for the first time, and it was there again today. I am losing verrrrry slowly but steadily.

i was supposed to get down to 154, which was too ambitious, but I didn’t know. But for the first time in my adult life I LOST WEIGHT DURING THE HOLIDAYS. I baked and baked and baked. I love to bake goodies. And I ate how much of the sweets I baked? How much did I eat? NONE NONE NONE NOT ONE BITE.

No one but you guys can understand that, how huge that is. Each week I throw away a plate of Cookies or something because my family just can’t eat that much. Meaning I used to eat 10 of them a day probably. I don’t eat Desserts at all. And I get still lots of pleasure from baking them, it now is like crafting or woodwork or ceramics (that smell really good) to me. Why would I gain weight at the holidays now? I d like to hope this lasts forever. I eat Protein, and a bit of veg and seeds/beans, and I’m not going to pig out on them, ever. Right? I don’t eat processed carbs any more.

Thanks for this challenge. I am very happy to be in the 150s even if I am 5 lbs more than I imagined. I consider it a total success.

GREAT JOB!!! And the biggest victory is the ability to say no the bad crap, and you marched right through the holidays, so hats off to you!! Like you, I love to cook and bake, and try my best not to eat them. ;-) Congrats on your success in the challenge!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
