Total weight lost: Earlier in January I was down to 195, so this seems to be a temporary bump up that should go straight back down this month. But such a bummer to go back over 199.9!

Ohhh, I have just joined another group...
This would be a good challenge....
And if I do lose 5 pounds this month I won´t reward myself, my goal is 8.8 pounds, so I will just wait for that resutl!
But I will be very happy if I eliminate 5 pounds! Then I am almost there!
And at the end of my 8.8 pounds... a watch which counts calories and your heart rate for when I am liftgin.... Definitly that! smile
And maybe, just maybe I will buy it when I eliminate 5 pounds... wink

Just for fun: What are you going to do for yourself when you lose 5 pounds this month? My goals are in 5lb increments. When I lose 1 lb my reward is a massage (10lbs milestone) so I I can do 5 more in February that will be the 15 lb milestone which was predestined to be new haircut and highlights! So I guess my goal is 6lbs for February but will be satisfied with 5!

Total weight lost: (since 1/1: 5.5) for Feb:

This month is a biggie for me as at the end of it, I will turn 40. My original plan was to lose 15 in Jan & Feb as I am quitting smoking on 3/1 (the BIG day). I don't think I will realistically make the 15 but if I am close, I will be happy with it as it means that I have set good eating and exercise as habits that will move forward as I put the beat down on smokey.
