Ok,
so that was the most recent mini-goal that I've set and as I've been avoiding my job like the plague today and have been lurking through all the boards I've come to realize that there are a lot of people around here that have that exact same goal....are there enough of us to get a thread going? How our progress is, menu sharing etc?

really it's anything to avoid doing actual work today!

I hope to drop double this amount by Christmas and enter onderland by the new year. I've been dropping EXACTLY 3 lbs. each week since August. I've lowered my caloric intake actually, between 1500-1600 daily, and increased my workout intensities. There are 10 weeks left until Christmas and I'm hoping I can keep up the 3 lbs. per week thing.

Count me in! I really want to get at least 15 lbs off by Christmas and hopefully I can get into Onderland by the first of the year. Ohhhhhhhhh how happy that would make me.

I'm working out 6 days a week now at a terrific gym and back to diligently counting my calories.

Plus, I'm in a contest with my TOPS group that the first one to lose 16 lbs wins $20 bucks. :D

I tend to get disappointed in goals like this... anything more than one pound a week seems doomed to failure for me. But since it's somewhere between one and two pounds a week, it may be do-able.

Hey, Sunshine!

Many of us here on the 100lb club are doing a Christmas challenge. Everyone can join in. Of course, a challenge with an end date of 12/31 does give you a few more days than a Christmas challenge.:D

Good luck everyone....I'd love to see each and every one of us meet our goals.

NESunshine
10-17-2007, 10:26 AM
Ha
wow...it's eye opening sometimes when you realize how many people actually share your goal with you...or at least a similar goal! Alright...well my 15lbs that I'm shooting for is specifically because I want to start 2008 in Onederland.
I worked out last night and ate on plan all day. I've got everything planned in Fitday for today and prepared and will go to the gym again tonight....same thing again tomorrow.
I will be taking Friday night off so that I can get ready for Saturday...the Keene Pumpkin Festival....where I will use the very valid excuse that I am not spending the night and must drive home as the reason to not drink all day with my friends and am planning on packing a cooler to keep in my car so that I've got a plan to fend against 'festival food' And I will also be hauling around and carving a 34lb pumpkin and doing a lot of walking.

Sunday I'm going hiking....by myself. The last hike nearly killed my friend...but I felt like I could do more (my size 6 friend by the way) so I'm thinking that I'm comfortable enough with the area that I can go by myself...and I bought a new car last week so I'm now more comfortable going places now that I'm not driving a death trap.

In the real short term I'm aiming for 2lbs by this time next week.

This week's struggle is trail mix.... I know it could be worse...it could be cookie dough ice cream....I've never ever been much of a nut person but for some reason this past week or so I can't seem to get enough cashews....which aren't necessarily bad but I could seriously eat all the cashews in the world. Personal goal....do not go overboard with nuts.

Pita09
10-17-2007, 11:49 AM
Well, I got my signature all duded up for this challenge, so half the battle is done! :D

This morning I had a very good workout. I did 25 minutes on the Elliptical and 20 minutes on the treadmill and then used the weight machines for my legs.

I have had my Kashi and soy milk for breakfast, 1 cup of tea and 2 cups of coffee. I'm starving and ready to make a healthy stir-fry for lunch. Tonight I have class so on school days I cook the biggest meal at lunch time. I'm actually thinking of doing that all the time since those are when I tend to eat the most calories.

NESunshine, I hear you about the cashews. I feel the same about walnuts. I eat walnuts on my yogurt and sometimes in my cereal, and I have to measure every time or I will eat the bag. Wow, I wonder how many calories that would be if I ate the whole bag at once??? :eek:

NESunshine,

We can get to onderland by 2008, no prob :) For the last 3 months, I've been sitting in the 220s and I had a goal of 100s by the end of the year but I couldn't find the motivation. I will be ringing in the near year at the south pole and I doubt I'll have a scale available to me (or at least one that uses lbs) so I am hoping to hit that goal before I leave around christmas time :)

I am also with you on trail mix. I was addicted to salted nuts and raisins for a while. It is such a nice salty/sweet combo but it is packed with calories... Back away from the trail mix :)

I joined the Christmas gift challenge a few weeks ago and set a goal to lose 14 by Xmas. Actually I originally planned to lose it by my birthday the end of November and then just maintain through the holidays. But if I don't see onenderland by my birthday, then it will be my Xmas goal. See, I'm flexible! I'm halfway there, only 7 more to go by my birthday. Here I come onederland!

hmmmm I wish I were going on a cruise to Antarctica for the holidays! You are going to have an absolute blast.
The rest of yesterday stayed well... I admit I went for the nuts but stayed in control. I didn't go to the gym though....I was actually asleep at 830...which is virtually unheard of for me (i'm not a big sleeper) so I will go tonight.

So far so good today... I've got a lean cuisine for lunch....and am resisting the temptation for a pressed sandwich. Sticking with my plan.

Anybody have any good strageties on how they are approaching this? Nifty meal ideas, good outdoor fall exercises? good fall recipes? I know I'm trying to do a lot of hiking, and am taking full advantage of apples right now.

NEsunshine,

I am also trying to get lots of hiking in but it is going to start getting a bit too chilly. I have been doing walk/runs with my dog every morning.

I am also on a fairly new diet plan which is basically a low fat, whole foods, no meat, no dairy diet plan. I am eating lots of veggies, fruits and legumes along with limited amounts of other stuff. So far, it is going pretty well although I am nearing the end of my second week. It is nice because it keeps me full.

I was a bit worried about starting such a diet because of my hypoglycemia/PCOS but I have been doing great.

I really don't have any approach.. I am in a cycle right now, where I am not trying as I should . I still exercise for more than 60 minutes 5 days, 35 for the 6th day and usually the 7th I go hiking. I also am sticking to food plan, but it doesnt feel enough.
I hate apples, the only way I can eat them is with peanut butter:) , so I usually stay away from them, and it has been so warm here that I don't really feel like making soups and chilli's. I did print up a few recipes I found on vegetarian times.. and will probably make one or 2 this coming week, and there are lots of winter squashes available, but then I think about thanksgiving coming up, and I don't know what to do, I usually make a great sweet potato pie, and end up eating a few slices, well I am going to have to start looking for low fat/fat free recipes. .
There are what 14, 15? wks left for the year, so I think we can all loose at least 1 lb a week.

And as we all have heard those with the least to lose often have to work harder than some of us that have a ways to go still. ;) I say stick around and be an inspiration. :smug:

I just officially started my new lifestyle yesterday, so we'll see how it goes. I'm sure I'll have to adjust some things here and there, but if I could put all of this weight on by myself, I'm sure I can take it off with the help of all you gals (and guys!)

My non-official scale says I'm down 1.5 pounds!

Of course, once my mom gets up so I can go raid her bathroom with the "official" scale, I'll be able to be more certain, but I certainly FEEL like I should have lost 1.5 pounds, as sore as my legs are!

This challenge is really motivating me to get up off my butt and do something.

Monday is weigh-in. Even though I haven't even had a full week of being OP, as I just started, I still plan on hitting the scale. I know what I weighed today, and I just want to see that number be down by then.

Tomorrow is my day-off, in terms of exercise. Sundays are going to be my only "off" days, and I'll still be doing my stretches and some yoga and whatever else I feel like. Just no dreadmill; I think my calves are going to implode if they have to get on the dreadmill tomorrow.

I might just see how it goes. If I feel like it, I'll do it.

Ugh, looks like I may be going at this without exercise too for a while.

I found out this morning that my doctor is wanting me to hold off on exercise until I can get under 240, because I have a bad knee, as well as because of my cancer history.

So I'll just have to be extra diligent and find some ways of sneaking in exercise other than the dreadmill, until he clears me.

Alright well the weekend away was a blast. We carved abut 20 pumpkins and then dragged them to town and registered them for the festival in a big shopping cart... we are the biggest geeks ever. The festival was a success, we didn't beat the most recent world record but hey, it's still pretty cool to be surrounded by 25,000+ lit jack o' lanterns. I ended up spending the night, mainly cause I deemed it the safer option rather than get on the road with 80,000 people half of which I'm sure had been drinking all day. And...well... I met a boy....it's strange we've shared the same circle of friends for close to 10 years and our paths have never crossed. We'll see... I kind of like this one so I think pursuit is necessary!

I took the day off of work today (mental health day) and had a doctor appointment. I do have to say after you've come to the end of a long road battling off cervical cancer it's a huge relieve to go see the OB and have her say....well...everything looks normal. I went straight from there to the gym and now have come home to grab lunch before heading to the grocery store...I heard somewhere it's bad to shop when you're hungry :o. Weigh in day is approaching and I'm feeling very positive about it...well accept it's the same day TOM is scheduled to arrive but hey...what can you do.

I just wanted to BUMP this thread back up, and I wonder if we want to start a weekly thread on Mondays?

I'm playing a trick on myself.....I'm in a Halloween Challenge, and I've been off plan far too long, decided to just get strictly on plan (that was Monday) and just NOT weigh in again until next Wednesday, actual Halloween day. I'm becoming a slave to the daily weigh ins, the daily 1/2 pound fluxes so I just put that scale away, and I don't even miss it. But I will get on it next week. I'm hoping to get on it and see a whole new number, like a big present I'm opening up for myself....or am I kidding myself? Either way, I'm happy to have liberated myself from that scale.

The daily weigh in's were something I did for awhile - stepping on the scale ALL THE TIME.. and it drove me nuts. sticking to one morning a week to weigh in has helped me keep track of the trend and it's good practice to not have the number dictate everything.

I also take my measurements and keep track of that.. because days when I dont see what I want with the scale I inevitably see it with the tape. It's really helped me - just a thought :)

Congrats to those who've had losses and a solid "you can do it" to all who are trying!

Scale says 259.2 today, which I'll take. It was TOM this past week, and I usually can expect a depressingly large gain, but I managed to lose .2 pounds. That's right, two tenths of a pounds. But you know what?

I'm happy with that. The number moved down instead of up, and I know I can count on a bigger loss this week.

Alright... I'm still sick but I made myself get up, I'm dragging myself to the office....hey what can I say...rolling rally for the Red Sox and I'm a die hard and my office is next to the route...no amount of sickness could keep me away.

Anyway I weighed today and I'm down to 211, 2 more lbs down!

I just joined 3FC and this would be an attainable first goal.

I'm thinking that setting a Christmas minigoal would be a good idea. Perhaps it will motivate me to go outside and walk when it's cold :) I'm pretty sure if I work at it I can do better than 15, but I don't want to set it too high. I guess 20 lb. will do. That would bring me down to 228, which would be 47 lb. total! I can't say I've ever lost that much before. Heck, the 27 I've lost so far is the most I've ever lost. Well, I'm in on this Christmas business. 20 lb. by Christmas morning!

I doubled this goal and put it as my new years goal.... but I've been dealing with health problems that have made me unable to exercise. I feel kinda like a hypocrite having my goal ticker up now... but I'm using it for motivation to eat right :) How's everyone else doing with this goal?

I had almost forgotten about this goal. I have lost 5 of the 15 so far. Ten more to go. I think it is doable... gonna be close though!

Although I'm a bit worried about maintaining a loss of almost 3 pd/week for the next 5 weeks or so, I think I'm up for this. At any rate it'll give me something to aim for;) Count me in!

ps I weighed in yesterday at 150 so that'll be my starting point

Bump

Today is the last day of november and we have a month to go.

How is everyone doing? I need to lose 7 (or 8) more lbs and not sure I can do it. I did have a couple of weeks where eating and exercising were off so I didn't lose.

i have been just checking this site out and reading stuff from all of you funny thing is when i am on the puter i eat while i am reading...really how gay is that. so I guess it is time to stop reading and eating and doing something. It would be great to do by christmas new years I have a drama to do so any weight off would be great and that would put me in the onederland (I now know what it is) Can some one private message me on how to get the counter things on here too?? and if you guys check up...I have no clue how this is run how to check on messages that i have left...is there an easier way to add people to the buddy list....can someone tell me how this site runs so it is a lil easier on me...thanks again

I'm going to get as close to my goal as I can - I still have four weigh in's to go. I'm hoping it'll keep me good.

I'm so excited about my 4 lb weight loss this week, I'm trying to find lots of places to post about it... I have lost 11 lbs since this challenge started. I'd love to lose another 6-10 lbs by New Years Eve.

That's awesome, Babies! And you could totally lose 6-10 pounds before the end of the year. WTG!

Bailey's momma, you're rockin! 20 looks easily attainable for you! I on the other hand was a bad bad girl today(:?:) and this week is only going to get worse. I'm hoping I can squeeze in my remaining 2 pounds before the end of the year:p

Way to go hun!

Me... I am without a clue. I have now stepped on 6 scales. All with VERY different numbers. And I can't get into the place where I WAS weighing in.

All I know is that I had to buy a new pair of jeans and I am in a style I have never worn before because my body has "shifted" everything.

Goal #: Out the window.
Goal shape: Bang on!
