March 1 is here ladies...what is your starting weight/measurements?  You don't have to share if you don't feel comfortable.  You're welcome to just share your progress each week.  Whatever works best for you.

Good luck ladies!

Hi

I weighed myself this morning and I weigh 143.5 lbs. I have not measured  myself, but I can wear my size 8 jeans, but they are not very comfortable. My goal is to lose 20 lbs and fit back into my size 6 jeans comfortably.

I plan to re sign up for Weight Watchers on Monday or Tuesday. Usually there scale is more accurate than mine, So I will post what that number is next week. I also plan to make my own post about my weight loss journey.

My scale is always a bit off, but I weighed in at 198 this morning. My waist measures 45" - which is super depressing. Hoping to lose 10lbs over the time frame for this challenge, and 50lbs total.

I start a work out class Wednesday, and found a great ab workout that I want to start doing every other day. I need to fit in cardio at home somehow when I can't get to the gym.

My starting weight is 155.0
I will be back later to track measurements. The scale has been stuck..but my clothes are fitting differently. So the measurments may be the big changes I see during this challenge.
Would really like to drop 5-10lbs during the challenge..but at this point I will take any notable changes. :)

Chest: 34.5 inches (just under bra band)

Waist: 32 inches (at smallest point)

Hips: 38 inches(at largest point)

Arms: L 11.5Inches, R 12 inches (At largest point, unflexed)

Thighs: L 22.5 inches, R 22.5 inches (at largest point)

Current weight: 140.6 (my original starting weight was 153 in mid-January, so I'm down 12.4 pounds so far).

Weight Goal: lose 5 pounds per month, hopefully reaching 125 by May 31

Additional goals: fit into my size 4-6 clothing again, and get rid of all clothing size 8 and above so I'm not tempted to let myself gain the weight back again!

Diet/Exersize goals: workout 5x per week, continue to eat a cleaner diet, and log food daily with MFP

My weigh in days are on Sundays and since I've already been eating today I don't want to step on the scale right now. Last Sunday I weighed 174.4. I haven't taken my measurements in a long time.

I'll do my measurements later and come back to post them.

I only take measurements every three months, and I weigh on Mondays. So every Friday, I'll say what my weight was the past Monday.I'm at 198.6

HW:249

 I will just share my progress each week, i do not want to weigh myself because i do not want to get upset if i see a number i do not like.

New to the group, but I started fifteen days ago. My starting weight was about 235, and today I weighed about 220. :)
