Default Bathing Suit Season Challenge

Is it too early to be thinking about basking in the warm summer sun on a sandy beach? I can't afford time off between school and work to go on a southern vacation so I have about six months before this can happen.

Every New Year's I make a resolution to look great in a bathing suit and dammit this is the year! My goal is to lose at least 25lbs in the next six months and confidently wear a two piece bathing suit. I'll let you know how I'm going to do this when I figure it out LOL.

Anyone in for a swimsuit challenge?

Oh my Gosh! Perfect timing, Prairie girl!

My long term goal is to lose 40 pounds by June 1st.
My mom's wedding is the first weekend in June and I am going to be the MC..I won't buy my dress till May, so I know what size I'll be by then. I'm so stoked for the summer!! Yay!

SW: 212
GW: 170

We can all do this! This is the year! My 40th Bday is mid may and I need to hit this goal!! It isn't my ultimate goal..but close to it.

I'm in too!

I've got another family vacation - all of my dads brothers & sisters and all their kids and my MIL/FIL, sigh. This is in August, but I hope to be at "goal" then, so I'm going to shoot for 175 by 6/1. Wouldn't that be awesome to show up after not seeing them for 2 years and be way way smaller? lol.

So... here goes:

SW: 209
CW: 209
GW: 175

That is only 35 lbs. I lost 9.8 in November so far, so I know I can do this!

YEY! And Shera, when is your bday? Mine is 12/11! And I'll be 30, lol... Joy.

All right ladies! We can do this! Lots of time, no procrastinating, if you start now you've got lots of time.

Does anyone want a challenge spreadsheet? Weights beginning Dec 1st, with a monthly weigh-in? Weekly? Will that motivate anyone?

Would love to have a spreadsheet. Would be great if we could get many girls to sign up! The first day of summer is in June correct? Let's do this! I'm hoping by Spring Break to be bikini ready!

We should all post a hawt bikini pic in six months!

Okay, I'll make a spreadsheet, official start day is December 1st with a weekly weigh-in, feel free to join anytime, challenge ends June 1st. Provide your start weight, goal weight, and check in once a week and I'll add you to the sheet.

Good luck ladies!

I'm in too I'd already set up a goal for a June 30th goal for myself, that's basically my "big goal" but June 1 is also great as I should be steps away from goal weight by then. Yay! I love the support of a group to lose weight. I've just started (about a month ago) nice to have a chance to support a group along the way. Bravo for the idea!

Yeahh!!! Yeah a spreadsheet works. Maybe we could do an interim, like halfway to June 1 and post progress pics them too and maybe before pics? Just an idea, what does everyone think?

I'm down for before, mid point and after pics (bikini's optional!)

Good idea.
