Angry 9 week WORKERS DAY GOAL! (LABOR DAY)

WHAT YOU THOUGHT IT WAS OVER? HA!

Starting the week after the 4th. We have 9 weeks until labor day. So let's have another challenge.

My starting weight: 213.0
My goal: 15lbs.

I will fill in this after I weigh around the 10th.

I'm in.

I have 8 weigh ins before then - the last one being on August 30th - so I'm going for 8 pounds. Will have my starting weight after weigh in on Thursday night.

Good luck all.

Talking Down, but not out!

Well, as you may already be aware, me meeting my July 4th goal, was like watching the film Titanic. You wanted Titanic to complete her maiden voyage, but 30 minutes into the film you knew it weren't gonna happen

However, I am truly up for the Labour (that's how it's spelt over here!!) Day goal. I too have 8 weigh-ins, so I am going for a loss of 8lbs - if I lose anymore, I will dance naked in front of my PC for you all!!!!! By the way, what does Labour/Labor stand for as it is not a holiday I am familiar with.

SW 189.5lbs
CW 189.5lbs
LDW 181.5lbs

My other goal is to exercise at least 3 times a week. I am doing good on getting in at least 2 litres of water every day and fruits are no problem, just slightly lacking on the veggie front.

Pyria - that's an ambitious goal, good luck to you, I wanted to try for about 1.5lbs a week, but it didn't work for me last time so I didn't want to tempt fate again!

Good luck everyone

I'm in, too. But I don't know what my goal is. How about, will continue to exercise and will stay OP 4 out of 7 days a week. I think that's all I can manage right now.

Default Labour Day

BFB - By the way it is Labour Day here too - it's nice to have someone online who at least spells like me!! Anyway, Labour Day is as the name says - a celebration for the workers and I think it's been around for about 100 years. It's just a break for those of us who "labour". Sorry you don't have the day off too!!

As for my goals - I'm still thinking about that so I'll keep you all posted,

Elisa

Talking UK Logic.....

I was browsing on the Britannica website (needed to know why Van Gogh cut off his ear) and decided to find out the definition of bank/public holidays. Found out that the UK has its own Labour Day which is May 1st. So I figure that if I am aiming for a true (to me) Labour Day goal, there is no way that I cannot lose 8lbs by May 1st 2002

Hello Everyone,

Well my goal for Labor Day (or Labour Day I work with a lot of Brits) is to maintain my sanity .

In the 8 ish weeks between now and then I'll be shopping for a house, packing, moving (I hope), and finising the plans for the wedding which is 19 days after Labor Day. So as much as I would like to loose 10lbs and get my 10% keychain (after a year of trying ) I'm not making any commitments.

To all you goal setters, Good Luck

- Tech
249.2/234.6/170ish

OK, here we go!!

I think I'm going to be bold here. I'm going to shoot for 8.6 lbs.!! That would put me another "decade" down!!

Starting Weight 7/4: 237.6
Goal Weight 9/5: 229.0

Since Wednesday is my normal WI day, and it's only 2 days after Labor Day, I'm going to stretch it 'til then...if nobody minds!! I have to be confident about this goal, it's lofty for me, that's 9 WI's for me, so I have to lose almost a pound at each WI. I don't want to get too cocky after doing soo well this past goal, but this is doable, I just have to be OP!!

So let's do it all!!

OK, this is what I found on Labor Day:

What is Labor Day?
Labor Day is a national legal holiday that is celebrated in United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. This year it is being celebrated for the 103rd time. It is a holiday that honors all working people. It has also become a symbol of the end of summer, and time for kids to go back to school.

In Australia, Labor Day is called Eight Hour Day, and commemorates the successful struggle for a shorter working day. In Europe as well as Brazil, Labor Day is celebrated on May 1st.

History of Labor Day
Two different men have been credited for suggesting this holiday. One is Peter J. McGuire, a general secreatry of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a co-founder of the American Federation of Labor. Other believe that it was Matthew maguire, a machinist, who founded the holiday.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, by the Central Labor Union. They held the second annual Labor Day celebration the following year, also on September 5th.

In 1884 the first Monday in September was selected for this holiday, to celebrate a workers holiday.

The first state bill was introduced into the New York Legislature, but was to become law in Oregon first, on February 21, 1887. During this year, four more states followed. They were Massachusetts, Colorado, New Jersey and New York. By 1890, Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers. On June 28, 1894, Congres passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday, which was signed by President Grover Cleveland.

It's funny, it's not something I ever really thought about before!! It's always been, well, 2 days later, we go back to school - the end of summer!! And BBQ's and sales in the department stores!!
