    I am in again, and I hear you about it already being so close to 2013!

    My weight this morning is 127.8 and my goal is 125. Maintain and to lose just a bit is my goal this time.

    I'm in.
    Weight today is 105.2
    Goal weight is 104, but really, I just want to maintain. It's been almost a year since I lost my initial 6 pounds. MY new "high" weight is now what my low weight used to be, but I need accountability, especially at this time of year, when I don't ride as much outside, but the trainer isn't set up and there's no snow yet.

    I am in and THANK you Possegal for this.

    Today's weight: 131
    January goal weight: 125

    With maintenance and allowance for holiday treating.

    Major goals are continuing to avoid dairy, sugar, and refined carbs. I am training for a March marathon, and like my new feeling of being a little faster and feeling better (no more bloat! Yay!) But it IS hard to pass up pie, cake, etc etc etc.

    I have been able to maintain 131-133 for about four weeks now, which is good. And I'm happy with everything and at the low end of the BMI, body fat percentage is on the low end, cholesterol is good, blood sugar good, so I don't really *need* to lose weight, but I still have a little carry bag below the thighs that would be nice to see gone before I'm 45!
    I can do five more miles.

    I'm in. I need to eat better and cut down on canned coffee (Java Monster!) and Cliff Bars.

    Starting weight: 155. Goal weight, 145.

    OK, I am going to stop this weight gain stuff and actually cut the calories. I am 112.5 today and that is unacceptable. My goal for the end of December is 107.

    In again. At 106.5 today and shooting for 105. That's not much of a goal, but I'm not dieting, just trying to maintain and not gain!

    Thanks!

    129 this morning. Racing on Sunday (8 mile trail run), so it's pasta the next couple of nights.
    I can do five more miles.

    106.5 again today. Darn it, I was 105 just a few days ago, right after TOM (my first in 90 days, yay!). Did eat a fairly heavy (but YUMMY!) restaurant meal yesterday. Cutting back now, but with next Thurs. being Thanksgiving, next week's weigh-in could be an ugly one.

    152.4 this morning. But I lost a lot from yesterday because I skipped one measly meal.

    Methinks me eats like a guy, lately.

    104.2. It's been easier to maintain, as I've been super busy and DH worked 2 nights, so I ate really good Paleo type meals.
    Yea, having a weigh in the day after Thanksgiving is not such a good idea.
    Maybe we should weigh in Thursday morning.

    Just avoid both, and everything will be fine.
