Default What will you be sayingin 15 weeks!?

It is ONLY 15 weeks until Christmas!!!

What will we be saying then? Will it be "Yes!!! I did it!" or "Oh, shoot...why didn't I get more serious with my weight loss!?"

I cannot believe we are so close to the end of another year. What do you say we have a little contest to see who all can reach a mini goal (or even their final goal!) by Christmas 07? I think a competition would help me step things up too. Anybody game? What better could you give yourself than to be down 15 more lbs? That is ONLY 1 lb a week!!! We can do that!!!! Com'on, 3FC friends!!! Whadda say??

If I get enough interest in this friendly contest, I will start a thread called "My Christmas Gift Contest" and we can check in there weekly, monthly...it is up to you - just something to keep everyone posted as to how you are doing.

This is excellent...and scary. I had no idea Christmas was that close! It sounds a lot closer in weeks than months, lol. Losing 15 lbs by X-mas would be awesome. I am in.

A check-in thread would be great! Let's do this, girls!

I am excited. I have needed something to kick me into gear. I need to stop being a slacker. Now I have great motivation!

Only 15 weeks til Christmas!!

I'm up for a little friendly competition.

I'd actually like to be 250 by Christmas but this may be a crazy goal (-2.5 lbs/week)... we'll see... but I'd be thrilled to be -15 lbs by then. Progress downward is a good thing.

I am in! I would like to be at goal by then, but I don't like giving myself time lines ~ so we'll just shoot for the 15 down and see how that goes.

Great plan. I'm trying to lose a just over a stone by Christmas, so that's 15-18 pounds, depending on how ambitious I'm being. YAY for Christmas and slender gals

I don't celebrate xmas, but wish everyone luck with their challanges, I have not thought as far as October 31st. I am 222 now and am hoping to loose 7 lbs by the 31st to be 215 that would leave me 2 months for new years, it would be nice to be under 200, but I will accept what comes, no matter if it is only a small loss or a big loss, because I know eventually I can acheive my goal.

When I am at 196 lbs I will no longer have a BMI of an obese women.

I'm in. Well, since I know that around Thanksgiving and December my weight loss will slow down, so I will go with.....16 pounds by Christmas. Then, I'd be 253.

And wow at Christmas being so close. It's scary!
Still trying again. Never completely quiting this journey.

Maybe saying this publicly will help me! I'm going for 199 by Christmas. We're going on a Disney cruise Jan 6 and my original goal for the cruise was to hit the 100 pounds lost mark. Given my recent looooooong plateau that's feeling very ambitious, but I've got to try! Count me in!

May I join?

I'd like to lose enough weight to be in a size 16 by Christmas, which should be about 30 pounds away. I've been able to lose weight that quickly before, but I've also been at approximately the same weight for a year now. So, in a perfect world I'd lose 30, but 15 would be nice, and very do-able.

I'm all in!! My Christmas goal would have to be to be in 180's.... definately do-able ..... I don't even remember the last time I was 180 (more than 12 years ago...) The last time I was 180, I was just passing through on my way to 235!! lol

All of my mini-goals revolve around Holidays. So, after my Halloween Mini-Goal, it will be a Thanksgiving Mini.... followed by a Christmas mini.....

I've been doing absolutely horrible -- not good at weight loss goals -- how about down one size (comfortably -- not having to lay on the bed and contorting, etc. just to zip!!! ) to a 16 would be nice!!

I noticed someone commented they don't celebrate Christmas -- just assuming that shouldn't leave anyone out -- just a goal for Dec 25th (which happens to be Christmas )!!

Weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint.
