I completely dropped the ball in keeping up with this thread in March, but I just wanted to come by to say that I clocked in at 139 even at the end of the month. I'll take the 1.8 lb loss even though it fell far short of my 6 lb goal. Going to stop by the April thread now!

Found out yesterday that baby is apparently very comfy on the inside and not sure about vacating yet so my "weight loss" goal might need to be moved to April.


March 1 (37 weeks pregnant) = 217.4 lbs
March 8 (38 weeks pregnant) = 214.6 lbs
March 20 (almost 40 weeks pregnant) = 213.7 lbs

It does appear that my weight is decreasing, I think this is all due to healthier lunch options and fluids/water weight, mostly fluids/water weight.

Baby arrived 3/23 and I haven't had a chance to log on or check my weight. Just got on the scale (after dinner) and...

April 2nd = 192.8 lbs

Woo hoo!  Congrats on your weight loss!  Oh, yeah, and the baby.

I was away last weekend so didn't get to post (or weight in actually) on the 31st. Anyway my weight as of yesterday was 127 lbs. Lost a total of 2.4 lbs for the month. I'm moving on to the April challenge :)

I've updated the roster with the results that have been reported so far for March.  A few of you reported in with your new weight, but I need the results in lbs lost in order to log it in.

I hope we get more results - it would be fun to see how we did as a group.

After staying put all month, the scale gave me a 1 lb loss at the end of the month.  I will happily take it.

And.... @Slow&Steady had her baby!!!  A huge congratulations to her, baby, and family.

I'm just going to start today because I totally forgot yesterday was 3/1.....

145. The goal is below 140 by the end of this month. I feel like I lose the same 10-15 pounds over and over and over.

I am sipping my protein shake for breakfast and have a salad planned for lunch. My goal is 15 soups and 15 salads in March with protein shake/poached egg/oatmeal rotation for breakfasts.
I had some good days (fasted 36 hours) and some bad days. (I kind of think birthdays don't really count as cheating).  The scale read 143 today, so I'll take it!  The next two weeks have nothing exciting in them, so I'm hoping to be way down. (St. Pats has cabbage in it, so you can make that pretty low cal.)

3/15/18 141 - I am liking the accountability. I haven't been as good about the exercise piece, so I'm going to work on that for the rest of the month.

3/24/18 141.3 - Wrong direction. I blame Maggianos and their amazing pasta.  I will try to be better on this Spring Break vacation than I was in Hawaii.  I don't like the flabby belly I see in the mirror....
4/5/18 142.2 - Bad. Just bad. I am recommitted to be in the 130's by the end of April...
Why the hell are we going shopping? Buy sh*t, return other sh*t, go through sh*t and donate sh*t. Complain about having too much sh*t. Repeat. (Bracken Joy 2/17)

It looks like I never gave my final loss for March. I was down 3lbs. So not quite my goal but still. I'm continuing the journey on the April challenge.....
Thanks for getting this challenge organized; it was very helpful.
