Default 5 Week Challenge!

Hi, I'm pretty new here but I've been inspired and want a challenge as well as other people to stay motivated with.

I'm going on holiday in 9 weeks, but have 5 weeks until I leave Uni. I was wondering if anyone is up for embarking upon a 5 week challenge to really slim down for summer.

My goal is ideally a 10lb weight loss over the 5 weeks but anyone with other goals is obviously welcome.

Anyone interested?

I'm interested! (I never stick to these things But I am nothing if not a try-er!) I want to go to the gym 5 days a week and stick to my eating plan, hopefully losing say....2.5kg, being conservative because I have graduation and start my new job, so I know there will be temptations and stress!

I'll join.
I'm going to bonnaroo June 7th so this is pretty much perfect. I want to lose 15 lbs! That would put me really close to my first goal point of 232, 25% down.

Awesome, now there's a bunch of us involved we can all work together to achieve our goals!

Shall we start with everyone posting their starting weight on Monday and see how we go. I normally weigh twice a week personally, but how often does everyone want to do it?

5/7: 174.6

5/21:

5/28:

6/4:

30/4 - 159.6lbs - I want to be 151/152 by 4th of June

I weigh in daily but I suppose official weigh ins for this challenge could be Monday?

I'm really determined this month we can do it this ladies!

That must have been a nice surprise ketamyie!

It absolutely was!
Yeah, official weigh ins should be Monday I think, I weigh 2-3 times a week but it fluctuates through the week depending on water weight etc. so I think it's more accurate once a week.
Off to the gym later. really motivated this month!
