I'm sooo glad I found this! I would like to lose 35-40 pounds by Halloween. Would be awesome to feel so much lighter and sexier as I'm dressing up as Ms. Lovette.

Ooh, count me in as well! I am really glad I found this because I was thinking I needed to kick things up a notch a make a firm short-term goal. So thanks for the idea!

Can I still play if I only weigh myself twice a month? I don't like weighing in more than that.

Here's my goal: I want to lose 20 lbs. by Halloween, bringing my total weight loss to 56 lbs. That sounds like a reasonable, attainable goal.

So excited! :jump:

Hi everyone, I'd like to join the challenge! I guess I'd like to lose 10 kg by Halloween -- 22 lbs. Currently I am 161.8 so that would put me right in the 130s. I haven't been in the 130s in 6000 years so that would be magical.

My other goal is to run a 5k on October 30th. Originally I hoped to do a half marathon but I fell behind on my training so instead I'll do the 5k. You can wear costumes! I love Halloween.

I lovvve the posting our halloween pix idea! I'll definitely contribute

Love that baseball costume Rhythm! Very cute.

I don't know what I want to dress as yet... but I've been looking, everything's just so cute! I can't make up my mind! :-)

Hi everyone! I'm new here too, and just saw this. I would love to join the challenge! Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I'd love to wear a cute costume this year. My goal will be to lose 20lbs. I also want to be able to run my first 10k by then. It's actually on the 24th of October, but I think it's close enough to put it in my goals, right?!

Halloween is my favorite holiday, as well.

Thanks to everyone here, the support and inspiration I feel is strong and wonderful! Today I weighed myself, and I've lost 4 pounds! I'm so excited!

5lbs is still awesome. I read somewhere that losing more than 4 or 5 lbs a week may be unhealthy, so you're doing great!

Brand new, but this sounds like a fantastic challenge! I'd love to be 210 by Halloween, and be able to wear my jerkin again. Guess that puts my goal at: Lose 26 pounds.

Today I asked a friend how much he thinks I weigh, just to make him squirm. I wouldn't normally ask people questions like that, but he's very honest, almost to a fault. His answer was 130 lbs. I giggled and told him his perception was off etc and he went on to say I'm no twig but I'm definitely not fat. So I told him I used to be 240 lbs and he was shocked.

He totally made my day.
