I am setting myself a goal and invite any one who wants to join me to do so.
Set your own goal, or join me in reaching mine!
I want to have 10 lbs off by the 31st.
Any one else up for the challenge!???

I'm new here and im really excited to find an online community. I'm in too. I hope to lose 10 pounds by June 1 as well. wish me luck

~I wish everyone great focus, self care and kindness!!!!
My biggest challenge is trying to get all the veggies in in a day!
05-03-2007, 09:44 PM
My biggest challenge is to be consistant with my diet and my exercise. So far, so good! Being part of this forum makes me accountable and keep me focused!
Blissful, to make sure that I eat enough veggies, I prepare them on sunday night and put them in zipplocs...in the morning, I just take one bag for my lunch and another for my break. Makes it so much easier!

~thanks for the tip meggy.
don't you find the veggies to be a little "off" by the end of the week???
Or do you just prepare certain long life veggies?

Hi, fellow Vancouverite! Good luck in your goals. :) I haven't set a solid weight goal for May, but I'd LOVE to reach 163 lb sometime this month. Fingers crossed...
Veggies have been a HUGE help to me in my weight loss, and I hope they'll grow on you the way they grew on me; I hated salad when I started this weightloss thing, and now I eat salad without dressing because I actually like the taste! So crazy...
05-05-2007, 09:40 AM
10 lbs would be nice, but I've been sick the last week, so I'll set a goal of 8 pounds by May 31st and secretly cross my fingers and hope for 10 ;) Good luck everyone else!
05-06-2007, 07:49 AM
I would love to get to 259 before my 40th birthday June 22 but the 31st sounds even better. So I'm in. That would rock, although 255 is my my next major milstone.
05-06-2007, 04:12 PM
~ I am so happy that you guys have decided to step and do this for your selves!
I weighed myself this a.m. and I am down 4, which I have changed in my ticker!
I think any goal that makes us better healthier people is a good goal!!!!!
I bought some fun colored cauliflower today, purple and orange!
I have never seen that before, so guess what is for dinner tonight!!!!
Keep up the great work, and please check in when you can!
05-06-2007, 08:39 PM
Congratulations Blissful for your weight loss! It's a great start!!!
I haven't lost anything this week but I know I'm on the right path by the way I feel...meaning more energized! Since I started exercising again, I feel better when I wake up in the morning.
To answer your question blissful, I prepare all kinds of vegetables on sunday night (I just finished!) but I make sure to eat some vegetables on mondays or tuesdays (like cucumbers, tomatoes or asparagus) but I can wait until wenesday or thursday for the pepper, broccoli, turnip, carrots or cauliflower...white, purple or orange ;-) It's a great idea blissful to try a new vegetable!
Have a great week everyone! :-)
05-06-2007, 09:17 PM
I just had purple and orange caulliflower for dinner this evening!!!
You eat raw turnip???
hMMMM never thought about that.
I bought a wack of veggies today, I just have to finish cleaning them and packaging them for the week.
Thanks for that tip by the way!
Happy Monday everyone!!!!

Hi! I hope its not too late to join, but I would love to lose 10lbs by June 1! I have been on an admittedly self inflicted platuea (Easter candy, I just can't say no) for about 4 weeks. Well, I finally broke it on Saturday by a pound. Anyhoo ---- It would be great to start off June in the 140s. (God knows I haven't seen those numbers for over 10 years :o!)
05-07-2007, 05:22 PM
Thanks for joining, this is your challenge so hop aboard!!!!!
ahhhhhh, the easter curse............
I hear ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
glad to hear that you have wrapped it up now and are ready to take care of your self!!!!!!!
05-07-2007, 07:24 PM
I'm onboard. We spent the weekend at a friend's mountain cabin where the main activity was eating, so I hope I can catch up!
05-08-2007, 12:18 AM
Hello all!! I would like to join too!!! We can all do it, if we put our minds and bodies to it. Ok...a bit corny, but hey it works!! Good Luck everyone. I just finished up my 2 miles on my Elliptical and I feel great!
I want to get rid of 9 lbs. by May 29th..do you think thats too much. I am on Jenny Craig and have gotten rid of 6 lbs. in 2 weeks but those initial lbs come off easily. May 29th is my birthday and I want to be under 180 lbs.
I have been working out every day and feeling great. I drag myself out of bed and literally have to talk myself into getting out there and exercising..but once I've started..I keep going.
Take care and have a great day tomorrow!!!
05-08-2007, 01:23 PM
what a wonderful pressie to give yourself!
The gift of health!
Yes we can all do it, and health is such an important aspect of our lives!
Take care of our selves first and it makes taking care of others so much easier!

I haven't been on this site for a week now...I wanted to come back with good news like "guess what? I lost 4 pounds!!!"...well guess what? I haven't lost anything! lol But I'm still in a good mood and I know I'm doing something good for myself by eating right and taking time to exercise. I don't think I'll lose 10 pounds by the end of may...but I'm hoping I will see a difference in my clothes.
Good luck group!!! :-)
p.s. Blissful...yes I eat turnip raw...it has a great sweet taste! Tell me if you try it!
05-15-2007, 10:33 PM
Hello all! I hope that everyone is doing well on their goals......for myself, well, I am going to have to amend mine :(
The good news is that I have lost another lb since I originally posted, bringing my grand total to an even 20lb loss:D But to be realistic, there is no way I'll an additional 9lbs by June 1. Well, at least not in a healthy way!
Sooooo, new goal is to be at 155 or below on June1. I think my birthday (July 2) goal will be 145lb.
Anyways, good going everyone else! Stay the course, I'm with you, albeit a tad slower :p
05-16-2007, 12:54 AM
I'm in! I'd like to be at 200 lbs by June 1st.
05-16-2007, 09:10 AM
Since 10 by the end of the month is not realistic, I will join the challenge at the halfway mark and shoot for 5.
05-16-2007, 09:12 AM
forgot to sub
05-16-2007, 07:33 PM
I am joining this mini-goal of dropping 10 pounds by the end of the month. I will start with the pounds that I already lost since May 1st which is three and shoot to lose the other 7 seven.
05-21-2007, 04:34 PM
Hey, how's everyone doing on this? I can tell I will not have lost ten pounds by the end of May, but I have lost 2-3 lbs this month, so maybe I can make five.
05-31-2007, 10:58 AM
Anybody here? I didn't write down how much I weighed at the beginning of this thread, so I'm not sure what I lost (probably 4-5 lbs), but I am loosing, for sure. I just took another lb off on my ticker for a total of 18 lbs. Twenty is my first goal.
05-31-2007, 10:39 PM
Just wanted to say great job on your weight loss! Just two more pounds before you reach your goal! Wow! That's great!!! :-)
06-02-2007, 12:41 AM
I made it to my first 20 lb loss. I did lose the 10 pounds.
