Default New Year Challenge

I thought it would be fun and interesting to set a challenge together. The New Year is 11 weeks away.
With the approaching holidays, our losses are sure to slow down and we will be challenged daily with parties, goodies, gifts, and our own baking.

Let's keep our own personal goals for Halloween and Thanksgiving..they will keep us focused and SO many of you all have already reached your goals (WOOHOO).

But together..let's try to battle the weight gain everyone else faces during this time of year.

11 lbs is a very fair amount in 11 weeks. I will keep track of the losses for the next 11 weeks for the New Year Challenge in addition to the Group Losses. If you would like to join the challenge, please post your start weight here and I will do the math off of the weekly weigh ins or you can send me a PM with your losses from this date till New Years Day.


100 LB Club New Year Challenge..11 lbs Lighter

I'm with ya Jennifer!! That would put me at a 50 lb. loss, what a way to ring in the new year. I am doing pretty good right now, but like you said, the holidays are fast approaching.

I'll take you up on that one too...need to update my current weight though...I gained :-( back up to 332. I had an odd TOM though, two last month, then I started retaining water, and having PMS when it was time for it this month...weird...so hopefully as I get more water in, I'll drop these few pounds...

I'm up for it. I will set my goal at 276 for New years. That's 30 lbs.
My weigh loss has been oddly slow for someone my weight. It is far from what I am accustumed to but as Long as I lose so what!
The old bod seems slow to respond this time but I am older and a lot less active so I am just delighted to be going down, even if it is by tooth and claw. Somewhere along the line it will kick in properly and until then....I will just enjoy the ride.

So 276 by New Years!!!!

I'm at 221 now so my New Year's goal is to get to 199. Haven't been that weight in several years, it would be nice to see the back of the 200's that's for sure.
