I refuse to fail at another challenge. Luckily the next month I don't have any parties, jaunts away, etc. I can totally focus. The 21 Day fix I ordered is on backorder, so I'm just going to focus on low carb eating and getting some weight training in......When this snow melts I'm going to start walking, just wish I had a dog to walk with.

Well... let's see... 1 month goals.

Track my eating and exercise every day.
Exercise 6-7 days/week including 3+ days of resistance training.
Stay under my calorie allowance every day.
Lose 5 lbs (239- 6= 233).

That would make 20 lbs total and would be awesome

Okay, great! 4 week challenge.

I am sure my weightloss will slow down drastically; I will challenge myself to drop 5 pounds. -- Starting weight is 140; goal weight is 135 pounds.

Thanks Zumba for the new challenge!

I am two hours ahead of schedule! Yay! Usually I run like crazy trying to get ready, not today. I actually have some time to surf the web and drink a cup of tea

Since we are driving, I just checked out the weather, and we should not have any major weather related issues ahead of us. I am glad we are not going south.

So, I have not decided if I should bring my scale along? It is nine long days Would I survive???

I'm in for this challenge! I've been lurking and reading the last month, but just couldn't get it together enough to participate. My weight is stuck at 164, and my goal is to be below 160 by St. Patrick's Day. I tend to lose weight very slowly, unless I limit my calories to around 1000 a day, and that's just too hard. I'll try to do better about checking in daily too. Maybe that will give me the push I need! Good luck everyone!

My goals are:
  • Be back at 156
  • Reestablish an exercise routine
  • Healthy food choices with portion control

I have this weird problem. It used to be that the first place that I gained and lost weight was my breasts. Now, despite reconstruction, that is not possible. So the weight seems to have decided to go straight to my upper thighs. Ick.

Reversing.course.now.

Newleaf..I have horrible saddlebags my thighs are the first place it goes and the last place I lose it.....very frustrating.

So I just made a tray of macaroons for my man friend, I'm making him dinner tonight even though he's getting home really late....I only had one macaroon to taste test.....making chicken and vegetables.....

Tomorrow is my bday an we are taking a little jaunt to the city. Not sure where we are eating for dinner but part of me doesn't care..I don't want to make food so important anymore.....

I'm going to stretch this one out a bit; I'm going on holiday at the end of March. I'm currently 107k and want to be less than 100k by then.

Walkies six days a week, work out 4x.

After that, my goal willbe not to gain any weight while on hols, ha ha!

I'm in. Goal to stay in my preferred range of 124-126 or lower. Need to also get more committed to exercise, but not sure how that will end up with things at work getting busy.

I'm in. I'm aiming for 6 pounds, that'll get me out of the 70s kg wise. My whole adult life apart from pregnancies (and post partum fat) I've been in the 60s so I'll feel more like my old self then.

weigh in this morning 180.2

1 ~ get back to ticker weight of 177.4 by the first of the year
2 ~ get to 175 which was my Christmas challenge goal
3 ~ get as close to 170 as possible by the end of this challenge

You did it, Rennie!

Cattails, thank you

Zumba you still did well on the challenge because you are here and keeping it positive Congrats on wearing the bikini, I surely can't do that, shorts or not and I am definitely not bold enough to try even in the dark also Beachbody workout, I believe you'll be where you want to be soon my friend

Heidi I ate 247 carbs of junk yesterday, so I got yours in for you Good job on the candy

Sum you are just amazing, keep up the good work Have fun in Colorado ok went back a little congrats on the new position and wow on the single number sizes, I wonder if I'll ever get there

Carma sorry about bloat-ville

Marlene way to go on getting back to your preferred range

Chubby mum Happy Anniversary and good job on your loss for the challenge

shr1nk1ngme, way to go on leaving the 150's soon

wantochange glad the cast is off, and that is exactly why I don't like pictures, my stomach ... drives me nuts

Michelle hello

I hope I didn't forget anyone if I did I do apologize

I am having issues with this site. I don't know if I mentioned it before or not. First I had all of these nasty pop-ups now I can't edit my signature to change it to a St. Patrick's Day theme. Have any of you had any issues?

My weigh in today was 169.6 up .6 from yesterday. I have been stuck between 168-170 all month, smh.

My goal for this challenge is to be at or near 162 so 7.6 pounds to lose Best of luck to us all on our goals
