My goal is to be lighter than I am today. This challenge is just about 5 weeks long, therefore I challenge myself to drop 5 pounds through diet and exercise.

I challenge myself to eat better; less sweets or added sugar. I know it is hard during this Holiday season, that is why it is called a challenge

Count me in. My goal actually is to be in the 150's by the end of the year. It will be a very difficult goal to achieve with all the holidays, but I am going to give it my best shot. These next 3/4 weeks between Christmas and New Year are going to be the make it / break it point for me in achieving this goal.

I'm in. I challenge myself to weigh less on Christmas Eve than I do on Thanksgiving Day. That will motivate me to get on the scale tomorrow; I'm dreading it!

I just made a pumpkin log for the Thanksgiving dinner; I had to try it out because it is gluten free and sometimes GF products come out as meh (this one included )... so I sampled the edges. One slice has 32g of sugar so there went today's living "sugar free".

This season is going to be challenging.....next I am off to make some peppermint bark,ugh.

living the lifestyle I feel that if I manage to maintain or drop a few pounds during these next upcoming weeks, it is a win. I am trying to push for 5 pound loss, but it may be a tall order.

Heidi When I stepped on that scale today and it made really sad. I was way below 150 less than a month ago....I am hoping that checking here each day will keep me in check.

Hello!

My goal is to stay below 120 throughout the holidays. Last year I managed to find 5 lbs. at this time of the year and I don't want to see that again!

Strength in numbers, hm?

HI all...my goal is to finally get to an even 140 lbs. I plan on taking baby steps to clean up my eating. Hopefully my move will be over in a few weeks and I can start my new life and have a new body to go with the new life

I will log on here often, if not every day, and confess my poor choices to you all...I need to be held accountable.

Lets do this!

I'm in also. I started the SBD this week (not totally perfect but I'm trying). I hurt my ankle so no major exercising for me for a bit until I can walk without pain, but I'll push through.

Good luck to everyone!!!

158 today - 140 is my goal

My day was pretty good, except for the pumpkin roll slice I consumed. I did a double work out day; walk and weight lifting. I lifted heavy and my muscles are sore today.

Weight fluctuated a bit, nothing drastic.

Meals
B ~ Green Tea
L ~ Pork tenderloin, small amount of mashed potatoes, carrots
D ~ Tilapia, rice, butternut squash, ceasar salad
S ~ Pumpkin log, apple, string cheese
Total calories 1600

Exercise
4.2 mile walk
Weight lifting 40 min (circuit)

Weight
154.6 up 0.6

I did not count calories yesterday. Scale is up a bit after a feast.

How did you do?
