Hey LADIES!!! (Any gents???)

So EXCITED for this challenge!

To get things started off I thought we could all do some introductions about our lovely journeys so far as well as what we are all using to help us lose weight (I.E. Weight Watchers, Calorie Counting, own made up system, etc...)!

My name is Kim, I'm 26, and I will be your team leader, as well as challenge leader for this challenge!!!

This would be probably my 5th or 6th attempt to tackle my weight since joining 3FC... I am a 3Peater...

I could go on and on about my struggles with weight, but here are the biggest things, so I don't write a book...

I struggled with anorexia while in high school, but once I discovered the wonders of soda and fried food... I no longer had any problems with being underweight! Due to a year of not eating, my metabolism is almost non-existent, so it is a real struggle to lose weight.

I was active in College, participating on both the indoor and outdoor track teams, and while I would say I was in great shape, I still carried extra weight around. Since College ended, I have packed on almost 90 lbs., some of which I have managed to lose...

I use Weight Watchers and the any exercise plan. Any exercise I can squeeze in during time off (I currently have 3 jobs)... I squeeze in!

SUPER PSYCHED!!!

Ooo, how exciting!

I'm 23, never done a 20-something BL Challenge before, so really looking forward to it. Kim, can you explain the weigh in thread for me?

(Start) 8/29: (+/- lbs.)
9/5: (+/- lbs.) (+/- %)
9/12: (+/- lbs.) (+/- %)
9/19: (+/- lbs.) (+/- %)
9/26: (+/- lbs.) (+/- %)
10/3: (+/- lbs.) (+/- %)
(Final) 10/10: (+/- lbs.) (+/- %)

In the first week we won't have a loss, will we? So what's the (+/- lbs.) bit for? I'm probably missing something very obvious...

I do very slack calorie counting. I've been dieting on and off since the age of 14 so I know calories of most of the foods I eat off-by-heart, and rely on my trusty kitchen scales to make sure I don't over do it on the portions!

As far as exercise goes, it varies hugely. Last week I did 5 hours of cardio and some weight training - but so far this week I've only done 15 minutes of cardio... I want to get regular exercise into my routine by the end of the year. I'm starting a new job mid-September (a real motivator for losing some serious numbers in the next few weeks!) that has free gym membership as one of the perks, so hoping that'll help.

I joined 3fc in December, and spent the 7 months after Christmas losing and gaining the same 5-6 pounds. Recently I've stepped it up a notch and am hoping to be far more consistent in future months to come.

Sorry for the essay! Looking forward to getting started on this challenge with all of you!

dayoneagain~Good question! Sorry about that! I remembered to delete the % piece but forget to take off the lbs. piece. Thank you for pointing that out! I'll take care of it right now!

Hey Ladies!!!

This is my 1st challenge and I am totally pumped!

I am calorie counting (on the Lose it app on my iPhone) and I've been working out 5-6 times a week- I'm doing Couch to 5k and Jillian's 30 days shred. I'm currently on Week 3 of c25k and 1/2 way through 30ds.

I'm 22, I have 2 little boys 5 & 2. I'm in nursing school, my classes will be starting back in a couple weeks, so I'd like to have my exercise routine in place when I go back to school so I'm less likely to quit. My eating will probably be easier once school goes back... less free time for snacking. i'd really like to lose about 15lbs during this challenge but I'd be happy with 10.

GO TEAM ATHENA!!!

ellie6388~ WELCOME! I have also done C25K and 30DS and LOVE both! 15lbs. is totally do-able!!! I just started in-service for school today and I am feeling better about my eating habits already as I'm on a much better schedule during the school year.

bbg200~ Losing loved ones is definitely hard on everything, including your waist line, I'm sorry to hear about your losses and glad to see you here Early Congratulations on your 6 yr. anniversary!!!

dayoneagain~ Congrats on your new job! Having a gym membership free with your job is AMAZING!!! Do you have a weight goal for this challenge? Maybe that will help you really get past those 5-6lbs.

I managed to lose almost 10lbs. in the last challenge, but unfortunately have seen about 2lbs. of it come back. I'm still ahead of where I was 6 weeks ago though! I'm aiming for at least 15lbs. this challenge, preferably 20, but going to aim small first, shoot for large! Unfortunately my biggest downfall is my emotional eating. I am manic depressive and go through days where my meds don't work, so controlling what goes into my mouth is tough. One thing I did last time I lost 40lbs. was either bounce on my mini trampoline or get up and walk during all commercial breaks, instead of letting myself just sit on the couch and eat.
I am a big chatter, but sometimes miss a day here and there as I work A LOT. I'm really looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Hey! Side note!

One thing I lack with the challenges is the ability to create banners... Anyone interested in creating a team banner for us?

Hi all!

My name is Valeri. I am 26. I started this journey mid March 2010. I am pleased with my loss so far but still have a ways to go ... and it seems things have slowed down in that department in the last month or so.
As of now my goal weight is 165 but I will see what I look like than and if I'm happy ... I can't remember ever being below 180 so it's hard to say what 165 will look like.

I have cut back on a lot of 'snacking' rarely eat chips/cookies things like that anymore. I do occasionally have a small piece (or pieces) of candy but I try to keep everything within my calorie limits. So far it's working pretty well!

Looking forward to this challenge!

Hi Everyone!!

I知 so excited. This is my first BL Challenge & I知 ready to go. I知 24 from Melbourne, Australia & this is my second attempt to lose weight (I知 just starting my 4th week now). I知 a calorie counter as well & just keep track with a pen & paper. At the moment I知 concentrating on getting my diet right as I have Chronic Fatigue. I知 hoping that small changes over time will get me to goal but for this challenge, I壇 love to lose between 4-5kg (roughly 10lbs).

Oh yes, my goal for this challenge! I'd love to lose 2 pounds a week, totalling 12 pounds by the end of the challenge - but I'd be happy with...well, anything really so long as I'm losing something each week. I think one of my problems is I aim too high and when I don't reach the 2 pound per week mark I find it discouraging - so I'm gonna try something a bit different.

Hi guys!

I'm Sam and I'm originally from Canada but right now I'm living in England. I've been super stressed out lately as I've just finished my project for my Masters degree, have been having quite a fight with the uni who delivered a sub-par degree for far too much money, and am struggling to find a job. I've also just moved in with my boyfriend. All this stress put me at 148 about two weeks ago, the lowest I believe I have ever been since I was a kid, and I hope to be able to continue with that trend and finally reach my goal. I do believe the stress had something to do with it as I have been eating more than usual but a lot more vegetables and healthy stuff and actual meals instead of 'diet' ones (but with low-fat ingredients wherever possible, and less oil!), though still much smaller portions than I probably would have eaten a few years ago.

I used to do WW and now I calorie count because it is free! I want to be more active and always start with good intentions but regularly give up before I finish something or grow tired/bored of a routine. I started C25k in July and would love to start that again, though I fear now I will be back at week 1 since it's been nearly two months since I've gone running!!

My goal for this challenge will be just staying on plan. In the last challenges I have only lost a pound, maybe two if I was lucky, so I won't set a number for myself.

Nice to meet you all and good luck with the challenge!
