Default Jingle Away the Jiggle Part 2 - A Very Merry Christmas Challenge

Hi everyone! The Christmas Challenge was so successful last year I thought, why not run it again? So here it goes, if anyone wants to join me.

Jingle Away the Jiggle
A Very Merry Christmas Challenge!


There are 20 weeks until Christmas. You choose your goal for that timeframe.

Post once a week about your results. You can either edit your original post, or make a new post every week. Just let us know how you are doing.

I had been hoping to get down to my real goal weight by the end of the year but though I've lost good amounts the last couple of weeks, I also had some really low, slow weeks, and I'm not sure I'll get there so for the challenge I'll just aim to lose 21lbs. Goal weight for Christmas: 160lbs

Oct 23 - 169.1
Oct 30 - 168.1
Nov 6 -
Nov 13 -
Nov 20 - 166.8
Nov 27 - 166.6
Dec 4 - 166.2
Dec 11 - 166.0
Dec 18 - 165.5
Dec 25 -166.1 Boo! Oh well, 15lbs is better than nothing!

*Oh man, I totally forgot about this challenge! Glad I saw somebody else mention it today!

Oh my, only 20 weeks!?! ulp.

Thanks for starting this.

OK, I'm aiming for 25lbs off.

This is because when I started my weightloss, October 2002, I got within 16lbs of goal by October 2004. I began to wobble. I kept track, albeit a wobbling track, right up to Christmas 2004, when I was 168 and after that, kaboom. 25lbs would take me to 1lb better than that!

So, "25 by the 25th!"

I am going to set a 40 lb. goal, so 207lb. by Christmas! Sounds like so much, but I know I can average 2lb. a week if I push myself. This will give me the accountability to do it!

My original goal was to have a fifty pound loss before Christmas, but I am sure I can beat that. So my new goal is a sixty pound loss. That means I need to lose 22.5 pounds or 1.1 pounds a week.
