Default Autumnal Equinox Challenge

Hey, the autumnal equinox is on September 22! We should totally do a challenge for that.

This challenge has weekly check-ins, although that's just for your benefit. You won't lose points or anything for missing check-ins. You can join the challenge at any time. Your goal can be anything related to your personal health or fitness - it doesn't have to be weight loss. You can check in on whatever day works for you. You can use the template provided below, but you're not obligated to. Everyone is welcome to join.

Template:

I'm in too. I have veered WAY off track over the last couple of months. I have been afraid to step on the scale until now. I gained over 10 pounds during my 60 day free-for-all. UGH!

Anyway, I am back on the wagon as of NOW.

Count me in. I started my new health plan on the summer soltice so seems like a first time goal of the equinox is perfect. I'm doing a 100 day challenge, ends on oct.13th, but this is the first one I'll add a weightloss goal. I'll keep it at a reasonable 1 & 1/2 pds a week or 17 pds. I can do that!

I weigh in on Saturdays.

SW: 266
GW:249

7/7 : 266
7/14:263
7/21: 262
7/28: 260
8/4: 257
8/11: 254
8/18: 252
8/25: 251
9/1: 251
9/8: 247 I did it- Made my goal of 17 pds- in fact at 19 pd loss since I began this challenge!
9/15 : 245
9/22: 244 Yep-still past goal of 17 pds. lost 22 pds since signed up for this challenge and lost 35 pds since Summer Soltice. YEAH!!!

Checking in... This week was not as good as I expected, since last week was on my cycle. However, my ankles have been swollen, so I'm hoping it's still water. Darn the heat!
