Default Memorial Day Challenge?

I know we've got the Easter Challenge going, but since Easter is so late this year, I was wondering if we'd like to have an overlapping challenge going on.

Any thoughts or takers?

Sounds good. It's May 25th, so it would be just over a month long. Just something to be thinking about perhaps

I'm totally down for a challenge. If only I could stop eating! I mean, this weekend was a total eating disaster that can be summed up in two two-word phrases: Cheesecake Factory and Burger King. What was I thinking!

Memorial Day sounds like a great time to get those beach bodies in gear, ladies!

I'm in for it. I have almost reached my Easter goal, so I could come up with a Memorial Day goal. Just let me know!

Bella-I'm in the same spot, I met my Easter goal yesterday, and passed it by a pound.

How about this. Let's just start it now, and whoever's ready to jump in can, and those who would like to wait til Easter can join later.

So...if you'd like to join the challenge now, what's your goal?

Mine is to be 240 by Memorial Day. That's 20 pounds away, and it's 8 weeks away. I think I can...I think I can...I think I can...

I am soooo not making the Easter Goal, so I came looking for this thread. I would like to be @ 280 by Memorial Day.

Since I haven't made any goals yet (but I'm holding out hope for Easter!), I will say that I want to be 225 by Memorial Day.

Unhappy Didn't make Easter goal . . .

I think I'll set a Memorial Day goal of 236 (that would be an eight pound loss). Eight pounds in five weeks should be doable
Congrats Daners for surpassing your Easter goal! You're my hero

Let's see here. I think I will set my goal at 262. I am at 276 right now so that is 14 lbs. It is a pretty lofty goal for me (since I lose weight slowly due to PCOS), but I am going for it! Since my June 5th goal is 260, that will get me closer.

I have to say that these challenges really do it for me! Thanks for having them!

I think I will just extend my Easter Goal to Memorial Day. My sons 6th Birthday is on May 28th so I will have to work hard and keep my mind on the task at hand. I want to be at 275 which is 7 pounds off. I hope I can do it.
