:carrot: The Loozing Floozies Take 5 Pounds Off First Challenge :carrot:

The first one to lose 5 pounds wins! Of course everyone will win and the only prize is that there will be 5 pounds less of the winner, but I think this will be a good motivator to lose all those pounds just 5 pounds at a time! :)

Anyone can join in at anytime and if you are a maintainer then stop by and cheer us on and offer bits of encouragement!

Okay, I'll join you. My weight on August 9th was 146.5. Yesterday, I was 145, but I'm back up to 146 this morning......this SHOULD help motivate me!!

Welcome Allison! From the looks of the pounds lost already, I think this little challenge is just what we all needed!

08-12-2007, 06:03 PM
I was 233 on 8.9, and today (8.12) I'm 227. Down 6 pounds! :carrot:
I'm so excited, because I wasn't expecting to have lost anything..

Welcome Lalique! Feel free to join us on the Floozie thread!

Well, shoot. I'm up today to 147.

08-13-2007, 02:07 PM
My weight was up this morning too, but I think it's because I didn't get all of my water in yesterday.

08-13-2007, 03:31 PM
You ladies are doing awesome. Don't get discouraged if the scale bounces up a bit it will go down with all the motivation that is going around.

August 9 = 146.5
August 15 = 145.5

1 pound lost. Now to KEEP it off and GET more off!!

I started on aug 1st and have lost about 5.5 lbs so far. Count me in for losing the next 5 lbs. Im off to paris in about a month so that 5 will be a nice push of my next goal of losing 10lbs by then.:dancer:

08-15-2007, 06:27 PM
I agree with Dee! You all WILL do it with all this motivation going on!!

08-17-2007, 01:49 PM
8/17 = 144.5 pounds this morning.

That's 2 pounds since August 9th. Wow, only 8 days. When you look at it like that, it looks great. On the other hand, remembering 136 from November, it doesn't look so hot!

08-19-2007, 01:58 PM
Well, this just totally sucks! I'm back up to 146.5 this morning. And to top it off, I ran yesterday and ate totally on plan all day. What gives?

08-19-2007, 02:38 PM
Allison, it's probably water retention. I'll be praying for the "whoosh" fairy to visit you!

08-19-2007, 05:50 PM
Thanks, Gayle!

08-20-2007, 03:48 PM
The whoosh fairy arrived! I'm back to 144.5 this morning!!!

08-21-2007, 10:18 AM
Glad to see the Whoosh Fairy visited Allison! She landed here last night too... I have met my 5 pound loss goal. Now to lose the next 25!

08-21-2007, 12:31 PM

08-21-2007, 04:54 PM

Hello from North Carolina!! I'm Jill, single mom of 3 beautiful children ages: 17, 15, & 8. (yes, the last one was a surprise! lol) Anyway, I've gained 100lbs in the last 4 years while going through my divorce and also having some thyroid issues. I just have to say that this website has really inspired me to get on the right track and get healthy.

So....I'm up for the 5lb loss!! Please introduce yourself...I'm anxious to get to know some people! :D

Welcome to the Floozie challenge Jill! You are more than welcome to join all of the Floozies in the McSkinney's Loozing Floozies thread #26 so you can meet the rest of the group. We start a new thread every week or so...

My youngest son just re-enlisted in the USMC and he and his wife will be moving to Cherry Point, NC in February! I'm so excited to having them move closer to home! We are in PA, but after 4 years in California and Iraq, NC seems like right next door!

Allison ~ Send that whoosh fairy my way, would you please? My motivation and willpower was left in the ER Sunday night. :(

Suzy~Step away from the ice cream and you will have a visit from the whoosh fairy! Actually, it's Gayle that is the bestower of the whoosh fairy!!!
