Default My Valentine Contest!!

So, Christmas has passed and the New Year is quickly approaching. This means that Valentine's Day is only 7 weeks away. After the fun we had with the Christmas Gift Contest, I thought it would be fun to do another short-term contest, aiming for the loss of a pound a week between now and Valentine's Day.

How about it? Anyone else want to join in on the fun? I certainly enjoyed the Christmas contest and hope you will join me in this one as well. Week by week we are getting to goal. Just think, we will soon be where we have only dreamed of being for years. :

Although I'm not yet finished my dec 31st goal, I'm going to hop on board this one. I was wondering what goal to set next Thanks for stepping in, Ritzy Now my weight 2 days ago (well, pre 2 day Christmas binge) was 236. I'll say then that my valentines days goal will be 229!

Ritzy, I was hoping you'd do this! You're such an awesome cheerleader for us and your support and motivation is priceless!

I'm not sure what my weight is as of today. I've been too afraid to get on the scales for the last week as I'm sure they are up quite a few pounds. But, I plan on getting on them tomorrow and I'll post my Valentine's goal then.

I'm in! 7 more lbs. will put me at 190, which I can hardly believe. If I can do a little more, then I would be in the 80's gasp!
The Christmas challenge was such a great motivator, I hope this one works as well...
Thanks Ritzy!

WONDERFUL!!! I'm so happy to have you join the fun. Thanks for your very kind words as well. Wasn't the Christmas contest fun? I thought everyone did great, especially considering it is a tough time of year to stick to a plan with all the foods that we get bombarded with.

I just know that we will all be much further down the road on Valentine's Day! We will be able to have such a sweet time with our Valentine!

We can and will do this!! Let's go! :-)

I'd love to join! That would put me at 193. (190 would be even better, but we'll see how I do.)

I'm in this time! I my goal is 10 lbs. which will put me 1 lb. below where I gave up and went off track last time I tried this! I am determined to pass that point and NOT quit this time around...no matter how scary it is.

I'm totally in!

I really don't want to step on the scales, but I'll suck it up and do it on Friday, which is my normal weigh-in day. I really got off-track this holiday season, and I'm ready to get back to where I was before.

7 pounds by then would be great; 10 would be even better, but 7 seems like a reasonable goal to me.
