Default Hit 10% Goal

Yup, 204 this morning, so an even 9.93 percent gone--close enough for government work!

Now for the 199 goal--it is still going to be close. How's everyone else doing? Mark, Jacqueline--you must be tip-toeing into the Ones?!

Come on, guys, less than 20 days left in the challenge. Of course, then we'll start the next one--the biggie--New Years challenge. I'll be going for my ultimate goal of 175, though that might be a bit optimistic!

Stay safe and healthy!

Regards,
Michael

Default Plateau?

I am stalled again...sitting at 201-203 for what seems like weeks (but really about 10 days). So close to the 100"s I can taste it. But alas, I am being teased. I have a wedding tomorrow and another next weekend, with lots of travel in between. As much as I would like to dip into the 1's...if I couldn't do it the last 2 weeks, not sure these are the best circumstances to succeed. Will continue my dedication to a healthy me....the scales have their own view of the situation.

Clothes fit great.

Default Four on the Brink!

Now there's four of us in the Challenge within spittin' distance of 199--how exciting is that!

Who's going to cross that magic line first? Probably not me, but it won't be long. Let's get it done, people!

Regards,
Michael

Well, I don't think I'm quite going to hit my goal, but considering that when I started, I didn't know how I was going to lose even 2 lbs, I'm pleased with my progress. I also moved across country and started grad school, so I know if I hadn't given myself four or five weeks reprieve for that, I probably would have hit my goal no problem.

Default 199!

Well, guess I spoke too soon yesterday. Was pleasantly surprised this morning by (sorry for the first-thing-in-the-morning look):

Have a great day, all!

Well done Michael, I did see 198 briefly on Sep. 16th but I did not get too excited about it because I knew it would be short lived.

This morning's weigh-in was 205, which after 10 days of holidays wasn't totally unexpected. I expect half of the weight I gained to drop off really quickly as I suspect most of it is water weight. I will update the check-in thread and my signature in a couple of days.

Once again congratulations Michael and hold that door for me, I will be there shortly.
