Default 4th of July Blast Off the Pounds!

Alright Ladies the 4th of July is 8 weeks away! I for one will be in Sunny California home of the pretty people for the 4th. I would love to watch those fireworks blast off being 20lbs lighter! Or 2 dress sizes smaller! Whichever comes first.

Now 2lbs a week for 8 weeks is 16lbs. So I'm making my self kick into high gear for those extra 4 lbs.

There are also 56 Days in those 8 weeks, So I'm making a workout goal of 50 hours of activity. That gives me 6 days of rest before the 4th. Now this is ANY activity, swimming, walking, work outs at the gym, sexy time (Wink Wink). So feel free to jump on that workout goal if you don't feel the weight loss goal is realistic for you.


So if you are with me sign in. Will do a weigh in every Sunday. Feel free to log your workout hours daily to keep your spirits up! Good Luck!

I'm in!



Today I walked 1.5 hours instead of taking the bus back into my part of town. I did 15 mins of cardio in the morning.

Never done a challenge before...
Can I join?
My goals might be a bit more modest than yours, so how does this work? Do we state our goals, then log in weekly??? I will commit to 50 hours of exercise (total, to July 4th!) but for weight, I would like 5 lbs a month as I am a TOTAL. COMPLETE. SNAIL...
Will this be OK?

Of course Kiramira! That is why I said you can join in for JUST the workout goal if the weight goal doesn't suit your plan Welcome!!!

Also for how this works.

Since you ladies have tickers you could make a Challenge Ticker for the workout hours.

As for the weight loss, we just post our weigh ins once a week on Sunday to show our progress! Yippie!!!

oo yes please! I'm going to go for a stone (14lbs) because I've got that Spanish vacation in the middle of it. I promise faithfully that I will stick to my plan while I'm away, this is not a game I can get off for a couple of weeks but a permanent lifestyle change, but it may be difficult to be certain of the calories in what I'm eating.
O, and my dates are Tuesdays, cos that's my weighday.

Ok I'll shoot for the fitness goal of 50 hours, the weight off will be whatever it is my body don't like to lose so it is very slow. I would love to lose 20 by then we are having a big family get together at the end of July, with family photos YUCK!! so 20lbs would look fab. Going to try but not going to let it get me down if I don't make it.

Count me in! I have a "May Goal" for myself but I can double that up with the "4th of July" goal.

18 pounds by the 14th of July... that'll make me 232 pounds, which is what I weighed 18 months ago. *wince*

Start Weight: 250
Goal Weight: 232

5/10: 250
5/17:
5/24:
5/31:
6/07:
6/14:
6/21:
6/28:

What a coincidence! I will be visiting with my in-laws over the Fourth of July and I wouldn't mind being a few pounds lighter. So, I will aim for 15 pounds by 7/4/2009.

Start weight: 230 (still!)
Goal Weight: 215


05/12: 230
05/19: 229
05/26: 230
06/02: 229
06/09: 229
06/14: 227
06/22: 225
06/29:
07/04:

Good luck, everyone!
