Okay Pryia, great idea to start thinking about a new goal. This is such a tough time of the year and maybe we should consider maintaining at this time of year a success. I think I will make a goal although I'm not sure of my exact weight right now. I'll check tomorrow and make an official goal but I think I'll go for 5 pounds - that's one per week and I should be able to do that. If I look back that's what I lose on average. Some weeks is nothing and some are a little more but it always seems to work out to 1 pound per week - no real complaints about that. So I'll check my weight and get back to you but I'm in!!

that is great that you want to maintain. But I know that I can an will lose 6 pounds during this season.

I think everyone needs to think about what is best for them. I do not want to maintain my current weight for even another day. I want to get off all the stuff that I have gained back.


Glad to have you join us.

HI ALL.

WOW! You guys are going for the gold here! It's definitely possible, just tough. My weigh in this week was supposed to be Thursday so I don't have one. I would have had a gain as I've been a fudge-maniac. So I won't have an official weight to begin this goal until the 29th. My goal right now is to be at a maintain by then and not a gain! You all are very inspiring!

I'm in!
Put me down for 5 pounds too. I'm too mad to stay the same. Even if it is the holidays. It is a good gift to give myself.

Pryia, glad to see you. I've been back and posting and then you lay low! Stick with me, here, friend. I need you!

Good luck all!

Maybe I should just go by what I weigh today on my scales as my starting point and then keep using my scales for this challenge as opposed to ww scales (they are always very different, I weigh more at home). So then my goal is to weigh less than 170 on my at home scales (rarely has happened, but have been there once or twice recently).

This is a big goal. I must focus.

Alright, well as I mentioned I've had a few bad days recently so I'll count my starting weight but what I weigh right now and that's 160 so I think I'll just aim for a 4 pound loss. I can do that!!

Rabbit - I also go by my home scale, it's very reliable even if it's a pound or two off the doctors' scale at my gym but I just weigh myself more often at home and I can never pretend that I don't know what I weigh!!

WE CAN ALL DO THIS!!

Default Turkey Day!!

Happy Turkey Day!!!

I am so glad to see you all here. Yes I am going to really get this going. I am making a promise to myself. To POST every day!! I think that makes a big difference.

I was just listening to the Football pregame show. They did a segment on Gilbert Brown who lost 70lbs. And you know something about that just touched me. It is not impossible. Just a lot of hard work. And you know my biggest support is right here. Why is it in my time of need I run for cover. Don't know why but I am posting every DAY!!!

Hope you all have a great day!!

HI

Good luck all with your goals! This will be fun. I feel revitalized today.

Pryia - I think posting everyday is a great idea - it helps to stay focused.

I started counting points again today.

I stayed OP for 1 day. I am now on day 2.

Counting Points starting with night. Seemed to really be easy for me. Much easier than starting with Breakfast. Looking forward to those 5 Christmas pounds to go!! YEAH!!

CHECKING IN.

1.5 pounds down. (Unofficial) According to this morning's weigh in. I should have an official weigh in day though even though I'm using my home scales for this challenge. So I'll make it Thursdays since that's my ww day.

Talking

hi all

I am still around, will definitely be getting my scales tomorrow. The thought of actually knowing what I weight currently is a bit scary, but I need to know what I will be dealing with. I have been comparing prices on the Tanita scales, going to buy one for about 44 (Ult 200 - I think), they have some really advanced ones, but I just can't justify 90 on scales. Wish me luck

Take care all

OK, I'm in...have not weighed in recently, but I weighed in on my home scale, which is probably what I'll be going by for awhile anyway.

Starting NOV 25th: 239.5
Christmas Goal DEC 25th: 234


I just really wanna get under that 235 mark again...it's been too long. And I still need to get back to 226, which was my low point just over 2 yrs. ago!! I've been messing around for that long!!
