Default Lose 5 lb Challenge - #406

Here's the next challenge, folks. It's easy, fun, and motivational.

Guidelines:
Use the start-weight from the day when you join this challenge.
Start at 5.0 lbs to go.
Update your weight as often as you like.
Whoever loses 5 lbs first wins..
There can be more than one winner -- if you make progress, you've won.

Name...........Start........Current.......Goal.......lbs to go
Entropy........xxx.x.......xxx.x.........xxx.x....…5.0
lowjax..........xxx.x.......xxx.x.........xxx.x....…5.0
Ms A.............xxx.x.......xxx.x.........xxx.x...…5.0
Murrie………….xxx.x.......xxx.x.........xxx.x....…5.0
nihold..........xxx.x.......xxx.x.........xxx.x....…5.0
Scotia..........xxx.x.......xxx.x.........xxx.x....…5.0
wbahn ........236.0.......236.0........231.0......5.0

I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be on the wrong side of this fence very quickly.

Thanks for the reminder on the rules. I'll go snag them and put them in.

I'm definitely not throwing in the towel -- I actually won five in a row recently. I just generally end up on the wrong side of the fence at some point in these challenges (I need to go look, but I think there might only be one where that didn't happen) and since I think that my current weight is a bit low to be completely real, I expect to hop off the starting line going in the wrong direction. If so, that's fine. My big goal with these isn't to win, but to be in the money (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) because that generally means a decent weight loss and a ratcheting down of my starting weight for the next challenge. If it ratchets down every time, I'm guaranteed to get to my ultimate goal eventually.

Will admit I am a little confused with my weight, clothes still fit great. Still figuring out maintenance, which I consider being in the 150’s and not being in the 160’s. So I will gratefully join this challenge and continue to figure my lifestyle out….good luck all…

Yep. WAY wrong side of the fence. It's like it's pre-ordained. The sun will rise in the east, teenage daughters will butt heads with their mothers, and I'll start out on the wrong side of the fence. No point trying to fight it, it's simply the way it will always be.

Trying this again. Part of my problem is that if I’m away from my scale and can’t weigh for a few days, I start thinking I may as well stop the challenge since it’ll probably be over by the time I get back. Gonna try to actively stick with this one until someone wins! Although I’m starting today at a new low weight so I’ll probably be “on the other side of the fence” at some point. Good luck all!

Great to see you hop on, Murrie. Even if this one ends soon (I, for one, am sure hoping it will!), you never know. Some of them seem to be near the end and then drag on for another week or more. And even if it does, so what? If they keep you just a bit more aware and focused, they've done their job.
