Lose It Weight Loss Challenge: 2nd Weigh In 1/17/20

The team name CEREAL KILLERS, is perfect for a few reasons. My best friend loves her some cereal, and I spend much of my time watching serial killer shows. So when I was searching name ideas, that was IT. Plus I’d like to think we’re going to kill this weight loss challenge!

This is my first ‘Lose It Weight Loss Challenge” update. I plan to share my daily weight, calories, and workouts. Eventually I’ll share some progress photos as well. We weigh in every other Friday, so that’s when I’ll share these updates. I also plan to share a success from that day, and something that needs improvement.

January 1st I was 271 lbs. I decided to get a jumpstart on the challenge and start ahead.
