Default Alternachicks Halloween Challenge

Alternachicks Halloween Challenge

Welcome to the official Alternachicks Halloween Challenge. The challenge will start the week of July 25th and end on Halloween. That'll give us 14 weeks to reach some of our goals.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. From now until the challenge starts, everyone can start posting their goals. If your goal for the challenge is to lose weight, you should weigh in each week and post your results by Monday 8 am EST the following week.

Example: If it is the week of July 25th-31st, your weight for that week should be posted by August 2nd 8 am EST.

If you forget to weigh in by then, don't worry. Just wait until next week to post your results. You will not be kicked out of the challenge for missing weigh ins.

2. Not everyone may want to have a goal of losing weight. You are welcome to post your goal updates, just as others will post their weight.

Example: If your goal is to exercise 1,000 minutes by Halloween, post your total minutes of the week by the same deadline as the weigh in.

3. Every Monday, I will post the results. I will edit a post under this information, so everyone can easily see the weekly numbers.

4. Finally, have fun and chat! When we're all participating and encouraging each other, it will motivate us to reach our goals. You don't have to chat everyday, but post when you can.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Also, if the challenge has already started and you still want to join, you are welcome to participate.

Wooo!!

My goal is to lose my 40lbs. That's not too much weight to lose in 14 weeks, is it?

I've got other goals, but they aren't weight-loss related.

I totally didn't complete my summer challenge (boo!!) so, I'm stepping up and pledging to complete this challenge, even if I don't meet the goal, I'll be weighing in every single week!!

I would like to lose 10kg (ugh, sucks being in mainland Europe) also known as 22lbs. I'll weigh in on my kg scales when I'm back in Italy ready for the start of the challenge

Hi IndieSoul and going2Bhealthy. Good luck with your goals!

My goal is to lose 25 lbs. I hope I can do it.

Thanks, and good luck to you as well! My mom says that for my height, 140lbs is overweight. But I haven't weighed that since about 4th grade, so it's good enough for me. In 3rd grade I weighed 130...eek!

Tonight I went to a WW meeting with my mom and aunt. I'm doing the Flex plan eating whole foods - it's easier for me to keep track of doing WW.

Count me in.

My goal is to lose 20lbs by September. I'd like to start my senior year at a "normal" size. It's going to be pretty intense, since I dropped out in the beginning of last semester, and ideally, I'll be going back 75lbs lighter.

I would LOVE to lose 40lbs by Halloween, since it'll pretty much bring me to my final goal. It's crazy. I feel like I'll never get there, but I know it's going to happen. It's just a matter of time.

Welcome, Rhythm! I know what you mean. It'll happen, but it feels so far away, and sometimes doubt kicks in despite the fact that we're working hard.

I'm thinking of upping my goal for the challenge to 30lbs, but I'm afraid it'll be too ambitious of a goal.

Don't let your fears deter you from setting the bar higher. I'm sure with an extra push you can manage to lose 2 lbs/week. We'll be here to cheer you on. ;P

The absolute worst case scenario is that you don't quite meet your goal. Then what? Nothing. You keep going.

The only serious harm it could do is discourage you, but if you've made any progress, as I'm sure you will, you can take comfort in know you're still xx lbs lighter than you were 14 weeks ago.

What kind of plan are you on?

You're totally right, Rhythm. Thanks

Right now, I'm not on any real plan, but I try to eat mostly whole foods. I want to try Eat to Live, but it might be a little too strict for me.

Thanks for starting this up Robot!

Since I have the added burden of my current medication to interfere with my weigh loss efforts - I have decided not to focus on a number. I am going to focus on eating well and exercise so that I will be fit and have regained my strength by October 31.

My goals are:

exercise 1 hour every day
keep a journal and count points
cook WW recipes each week

My reward = new belly dance outfit

Well, since Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine, I think it would make a great end to a challenge. I would like to lose 20 lbs during this challenge. Deal me in.

Ooh, I just thought of something! As a reward for reaching my goal, I'll be helping myself to a little bit of Halloween candy. I'm also going to dress up this year, since I won't have worry about finding a costume that fits. I'm thinking Snow White.

Oooh can I be in? Halloween has been one of my big goals, to be able to wear a cute costume and look good. I want to lose 20 lbs by then. Can't wait!
