That may seem like a bit of an extreme goal.

But I was checking out the calendar for October and it almost has 5 weeks.

Attainable?

VERY VERY VERY attainable! On Weight Watchers they estimate for a person to loose 2 pounds per week ( and that is very healthy.) I made a goal yesterday to 155 (down 10 pounds) by the end of October too. LETS DO IT!

I think at your weight it would be attainable, but I think you'll need to be very strict with yourself about staying OP.

I am hoping to lose 8 this month ... (not counting the nearly 7 lbs of water weight I put on this weekend from eating waaaaaayyyyy too much salt and not drinking enough water). My October goals include eating 100% on plan during the week, only allowing myself one non-counting meal on the weekends, and sticking with my gym schedule faithfully.

Maybe we can help encourage each other this month!

Thanks guys. I definitely needed confirmation.

Count me in, PhotoChick... I could use all the encouragement I can get and I have an abundance of encouragement for everyone else who needs it! Good luck losing the 8lbs. I'm positive you can do it. Look how much you've done already. That goes for all of you, whatever your goals may be. It is attainable.

Of course you can!! It'll be hard work, but 10 pounds in a month is SO worth it!! It's my goal to lose 6 pounds in the next by Oct 16th, a little over 2 weeks.. and I totally think I can do it. Good luck!

Alright girls, we're sooo going to do this. There's no way that we can't. We all seem very motivated. You will lose 6lbs SwimGirl, I will lose 10, PhotoChick will lose 8, Michellenew will lose 10 or whatever it is she wishes to lose..

I read a book on positive affirmations and how much they can change your thinking and therefore your outcome, so I'm trying to tell myself everyday that I will be 178 by the end of October.

I'm glad to see everyone's with me! The day after Halloween is my birthday, so how cool would that be to have lost 10lbs? That's all I want for my birthday, to just lose 10lbs.

I'm excited.

That's a good idea about posting this in the blogs. If you guys also have blogs, it's a good suggestion to post your commitment to the 10lb October challenge. This way you're holding yourself accountable to not only yourself but everyone else, and it's more motivational. I found when I posted in my blog I did better. Whenever I slack off with my blogging, I also tend to slack off with being OP because the blog is a reminder that I'm blogging for a reason! So, excellent idea. I plan to do the same.

One thing I really need encouragment on is to get up and exercise. I'm trying to find a simple and easy 'toning' routine to do along with cardio. I just have to actually get up off my booty and do it. I would love to be able to do an hour or so a day.

Have you ever seen Barry's Bootcamp? GREAT toning DVD!!!! I LOVE IT. Uses the bands. You get 3 DVDs (that have multiple work out's on them) the bands with handles and a nice exercise type ball for about 65 bucks. Google it if interested! I LOVE It! And they are short work outs that REALLY work.

I just started a blog today, but having trouble getting around it. I will work on it!

...BUT I will loose 10 pounds this month!

Kudos on your positivity! And I believe you will most definitely lose 10lbs.

The workout DVD definitely sounds interesting. I'm going to check amazon.com to see if they sell any used, and also check Walmart the next time I'm in. I think I NEED some bootcamp to whip me into shape and get me disciplined. Thanks for the recommendation!
