Cool The "First" Challenge of 2018

Returning for the 9th year in a row . Everyone is welcome to join

Here are the "rules" :
  1. Commit to posting your weight on the First of every month in 2018, no matter what.
  2. Add your name to the list alphabetically.
  3. That's it
* Tip * .. be sure to copy the very last post in the thread when adding your name or when updating on the First of each month. This will ensure other folks' updates don't get missed


If you participated in 2017, don't forget to add your January 1st update to that thread as well .. Link to last year's thread (2017)

hi Jo, good to see you returning for another year

Here are wise words from last January by our dear Jody (FatFreeMe), who's kept this challenge going for years.

If anyone is interested, here is a link to our VERY FIRST "FIRST" CHALLENGE thread from 2010:
http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=405686

I've spent some time this afternoon, going through them. It's interesting to see the friends come and go, some people succeed and then move on. Others, like me, just keep trying. I've likened my weight loss journey to my quit smoking journey, and sometimes think maybe THIS is the year I succeed.

Any one of us can tell you--This is a marathon thread.. It's not a sprint. We welcome everyone, but remember... you are committing to being here month in and month out... Posting your weigh in's, the good the bad and the ugly... Occasionally, throughout the year, I will delete people who haven't updated for a few months, just to keep it clean and easier to update at the beginning of the month. If I delete you and you want to return, that's fine. Just continue to update and you won't be deleted.

Over the years I have found this keeps me accountable. I find if I slip and start skipping posting, then it all goes downhill from there... sorta like the dirty dish water circling the drain.. Hence, my problem as to why I'm still here at the same weight as when I started this. Then I come back and start paying attention, and start posting again, and things improve. Ugh..
I. must. stop. doing. that! Here's to the New Year, may we all have good health and prosperity. Thanks for listening (or reading, I guess.)

OK - I'm in this year. I wouldn't mind losing a few pounds but staying where I am is fine too. What I guard against is gaining weight. That's why I decided to join this year.

I would like my average for 2019 to be 123.something not 124.something again. Maintenance does not do itself.
