OK, I'm in.

I'm not sure what I will be able to accomplish, but I will set my goal at 10 pounds. That commits me to lose not quite 2 pounds each week. That should be doable for me if I stay OP for the whole time. I'd really like to be down to 130, but even I know that is not possible in the time that I have available. LOL

Starting Weight: 142.5 (as of 02/01/02)

Well, here it is. Valentine's Day already. I started out on this challenge great and had a rough time in the middle. This week has been a bad week for following the weight loss program, but a good week for weight loss. It also helped to reach my goal, but I don't feel very good about it.

Starting Weight: 142.5 (as of 02/01/02)
Present Weight: 131.0
Goal Weight: 132.5
Lbs to Goal: -1.5 lbs

Hi Everyone!

So you know me, I'm the bad kid when it comes to this weight loss. I'm trying, I'm trying!!!

I want to be 142 for Valentine's Day because it's 4 days before my 1st Anniversary with my BF. LOL. That's about 7-8 pound, depending on how I weigh in for the day! ACK!

154/151.5-152/142 by Valentine's Day

Gotta get my butt to the gym then!!!

HI guys,
I meant to get in this when CJ started it the beginning of the month and aim for a 8 lb weight loss. But I went back to my weight loss and have already lost 3.4 LBs since the 4th of January when she started this thread. So I guess I am on my way so I just have to lose another 4.6 LBS. So I guess I will just try to lose some more weight, whatever I can in the next 2 weeks, which is all we have left. So if I can lose a few more pounds I will be happy.

Anyone else? It is never too late.

Love you, Sharon

Man oh man!!! I was reading this thread about how everyone was going to lose 10 lbs. or 6 lbs. and I'm thinking "But it's only 2 weeks to Valentines Day!! How are they going to do that!?!?!"

Boy, 10 lbs. in 2 weeks sounds good to me!!! What's the secret to that!?!? Then I realized this thread was started a while ago. Bummer.

OK, 2 weeks. I'm thinking ... well, 2 lbs. maybe? A pound a week is fair.

Wait! I know! I want to reach my 40-lb. mark by Valentines week weigh-in (Sat. Feb. 16)! So that'll be 2.2 lbs. Oooh, so close .....
