Default Happy Valentine's Day Challenge!

I read the posts and complied!

Got some sexy red undies you'd like to wear for your sweetie? Think about where in your weight loss journey you'd like to be by Valentine's Day and post it here. Your goal can be scale or non-scale oriented, and, in fact, it could be behavior oriented, or any darn thing you choose it to be.

I would like to be 175 by Valentine's Day. Frankly, I'm hoping things will start moving a bit faster after the holidays, but I need to embrace my turtle ways (weighs?) and choose my goal accordingly.

Good luck everyone!

Women who behave rarely make history.

I think I want to do inches this time, but I have no idea what would be an appropriate amount to try for since I have not measured inches since I started losing weight. Can anyone clue me in?

If you learn from your suffering, and really come to understand the lesson you were taught, you might be able to help someone else who's now in the phase you may have just completed. Maybe that's what it's all about after all...

OK...Im going to be EXTREMLY optomistic and say that
I want to be at GOAL (170) on February 14th
. It may be a little bit of a stretch, but I WILL resume my plan on Dec. 26, so that gives me about 7 weeks. Feb 14 will be (almost) my 1 year mark for starting...so Id really like to be there. After 170, I may try to keep going a little, but we'll have to see about that!

I'm with you in the slow lane Sheila! My goal is 165 for Feb 14th. It doesn't sound like much, but since it's been almost 2 months since I've lost anything, I think it's more than reasonable...
Less than 15 lbs to go!!!

Same goal as last year.... (that is NOT a good thing!) 215 on 2/15. It will be my seventeenth birthday.
My renewed motivation is I want to have a REAL prom dress this year and go dress shopping with my friends, and I have to have senior pictures this summer, and my sister is getting married in October. Plus, I am on the market for a treadmill and I feel like it will change a lot of things...

S/C/G: 274/?/175

Height: 5'8


turtle weighs...

I'm determined to make this one. 215 by 2/14 (hardee har). That shouldn't be too terrible, it's about 15 pounds. If I bust my butt I may even get to 210, which would be nice, but 215 sounds good for right now.

This one I'm REALLY holding myself accountable for, especially since I have a month off from school and nothing much to do!

Good luck, ladies and gent(s)! Make sure to check in

I'm losing weight faster than I thought I would. So I'm going to be optimistic and say 310 by Feb 14.

Thanks for the challenge Sheila

I'm going to TRY for 15 more pounds by Valentine's Day. I'm presently wheelchair bound with a broken ankle, but I'll be in a walking cast in a few weeks. I don't know how mobile I'll be (I've only had this thing since JUNE ), but I want to be up and moving, which should help my weight loss.

I would like to lose about 15 lbs by Valentines Day. That would bring me under 300lbs!
