I'm in, and I say we start Tue. or Wed, with a Tue WI. Anyone have a better day to start or WI. I am flexible ;)

11-03-2009, 07:38 AM
I saylet's weigh in Tuesday, today. No better day to start than today!

I am 249.

Oh. My. $*&(*$&(#*&(*&%($#*&%(#*$&

11-03-2009, 09:53 AM
I want in too! But I didn't weigh today...can I just go with what my Friday weight was? I think i am about the same anyway...251.6! Ah!
I usually weigh on Thursday or Friday but I can do whatever works for the group :)

11-03-2009, 10:16 AM
I weighed last night and I am 192. I am in for a Tuesday weigh in and will began my new plan today. I am starting with trying to loose 2 pounds to get to 190.

263....How the **** did this happen?

11-03-2009, 08:30 PM
Oh ladies, it sounds like we're all in the same boat!

What are our plans?

Mine are:

1.) Get a 30 minute workout in every weekday morning.
2.) Walk at least 30 minutes on my lunch break.
3.) Journal everything I eat and drink.
4.) Eat OP.

Today is a new day girls, we can do this. I am tired of being fat. I've ben fat my WHOLE life. Enough is enough.

I think I can do anything I set my mind to, but can't lose weight. WTF?? Seriously?? I CAN AND WILL DO THIS.

11-03-2009, 09:45 PM
Tuesday works for me too!Today's WI...160.4 lbs

11-04-2009, 10:29 AM when is the first weigh in?
100 lbs is A LOT for a small group of people...unless we push the goal out aways...I'd like to see if we can lose 50 lbs as a group by Christmas! What do you think? I'm keeping in mind smaller, short term goals seem to work better (in my opinion anyway)

11-04-2009, 10:46 AM
I'm in I"m in :) I can attribute starting last Saturday add 4 lbs to that total of 100lbs :)

11-04-2009, 06:48 PM
We don't have to set a date, how about just from Tuesday on?

I'd rather wait 2 weeks to weigh in. When I do it in the same week, it's 2-3 lbs, but I may go up. Id rather do it every two weeks to get a bigger number.


11-05-2009, 10:26 AM
Amy - love the ticker!

Well, going back to your original idea, whoever posts a loss first, then next person adds (or subtracts) their number. So, should we count UP to 100, or DOWN from 100?

I generally weigh in on Tuesdays, so I won't have a number until next week. Whoever weights in before that can start us off!

11-05-2009, 11:50 AM
Sweet!!!! I am down 1.2 lbs, but I won't officially report until Tuesday. I am going to make a ticker.

11-05-2009, 11:54 AM
I am down 1.5 pounds already.Such a good feeling.Tuesday is good with me weighing in.I am a bit obsessive about weighing my self every day.I have been having terrible chocolate cravings lately.I caved in last night and had a handful of chocolate chips.Hopefully it doesn't mess me up.Hope everyone has a great day.

I am doing great so far! I decided that a spreadsheet would keep me in check, so I made one up with all of November on it. That way I can check off things as I do them. My chart also has other important things on it that I need to do everyday, like take my supplements and mediatate. So far so good!

11-05-2009, 12:26 PM
Well...I usually weigh in on Thursday or Friday and I did today so....down 1 lb :)
I created a ticker for the challenge and I put my goal in at just over 10 lbs...hopefully by Christmas....I'll edit as the challenge continues :)

11-05-2009, 12:29 PM
I can create a spreadsheet to track our progress if you guys want..just send me your starting weights and as you weigh in the new weight :)

Mama Nicole
11-05-2009, 02:26 PM
Superb, Kristin, both on your loss, and on keeping the spreadsheet for us :)

I am super excited that Katie decided to join this challenge. You always bring such positive energy. We all need support and encouragement, and you, my friend, are a pro at that :)

So, I will send my stats via a PM if that is ok, Kristin :)

Ah, thank you Nicole! I have to stop f*&%@ing around. I am gaining at least 5 lbs per month. I have never been this heavy. Time to take a big girl pill and get busy. I know that I can lose the weight, I have done it before. I just have to care enough to try, you know.

11-05-2009, 04:41 PM
Kristen - do you want to include my numbers? I am just "restarting" and this is my TO week. On Tues, I weighed in at 168.5

11-06-2009, 10:09 AM
Ok, here's what I have so far...let me know if I am missing anyone. I figure just whenever you weigh in, whichever day that may be, just post your new weight and I'll update the chart. And...I'll figure out how to make it prettier on here :P

EDIT: made it better

11-07-2009, 12:03 PM
There are 10 of us.......that's only 10 lbs a piece. no sweat..... :lol:

10 lbs each hmmm.sounds doable.When I started my diet a year ago I weighed227.Seemed the weight just fell off.Now I am stuck.On the happy side I am down 1.5 pounds so far this week.My daughters girlfriend brought over a barrel size container of cheese balls last night.Needless to say I did cave and have some.But I will not consider this a failure.I will just move on.Otherwise I will tell myself well I already cheated may as well so it some more.

Down 1 lb!

11-10-2009, 10:44 AM
Down 1.5 lbs...

11-10-2009, 11:36 AM
Way to go ladies! keep the numbers coming!

11-10-2009, 11:56 AM
Down two pounds...wish it was more!!! Just one pound this week, but 2 since I posted my weight. so that makes me 190.Thanks for the spread sheet Kristin it looks great. !0 pounds each we can so do it!!!! I am so ready to start loosing again. I think that this will be the motivation I need.

I got the scale out last night and of course baby Andrew had to weigh he weighs 30.9 but we want him to gain. My 11 year old decided to weigh and he is bummed that he only weighed 90. He asked when I was going to weigh I said in the morning naked. He just looked at me so strangely and I said I need and accurate weight and clothes just weigh you down. So he took off his shoes and his hoodie and went down to 86.9. He was floored at how much clothing really weighs. He of course opted not to weigh minus clothes. For the life of me even at 11 I never remember wanting to weigh more...

11-10-2009, 03:05 PM
hahaha..Amy M...i know !!! I would have killed to be 90lbs at 11!!! I was 110lbs...from the age of 10 till I was in my early teens. When I was 10, i lived on meat,potato and junk...and was overweight...then at 14-15 I got conscious and interested in boys and started losing weight...but that time i already got boobs and butt i was stuck between 110- 120. Most of my adult life i yo-yoed between 128-132 not really eating...remember i am just 5'2".

Then started picking up after marriage...and finally ended up 198 ...that was summer'08. So i know all about a life long battle!!!

Fortunately...thats all in the past...I will go to the COD for a weigh in this afternoon.Keeping my fingers crossed!!!

11-10-2009, 03:24 PM
Down 1.5 pounds this week.

11-10-2009, 07:43 PM

11-12-2009, 04:25 PM

11-14-2009, 04:43 PM
Sorry everyone! I couldn't get on the site the last few days for some reason. Will post the updated chart soon!
I'm gonna weigh in Friday after I finish the 30 day challenge on Thursday! I'm afraid the scale won't be down and I measure that day too so hoping I see some inches lost at least...then I won't be so depressed

11-14-2009, 07:50 PM too!I couldn't access the site as well.Hope everyone doing good...i went for a WI this Friday and i'm down 0.6lbs since last Tuesday...I'll be going for a WI not on Tuesday but Wednesday that is my official D-day for 156.6 lbs....I don't know if I am gonna make it but trying to stay positive...and doing another TO :)

11-16-2009, 11:27 AM
Well, that was an annoying couple of days while the site was down! It went down in the middle of me updating my tickers too. WTF?

11-17-2009, 10:52 AM
I lost .5 pounds this week.I am ok with that as TOM is visiting this week.Hopefully next week I will see a bigger loss.Congrats to everyone for there losses.

11-27-2009, 01:14 PM
Thanks Kristin...don't worry we all have those "low" weeks.I absolutely loved the dress!!!
Congrats to the losers :)

12-03-2009, 12:44 PM
Where is everyone?? My scale finally budged but not much...only down 0.2 however the scale has spiked up as high as 253.8 so sort of a bigger loss over the past to stay on track!

12-04-2009, 09:26 AM

I'll get back to you next week - hopefully with good news.

12-10-2009, 07:10 PM
I'm new to this and I just started, but I will totally join in! I could use a little extra motivation. I'm doing Take Off tight now so hopefully I'll be able to help.WI=160.4 Yay! We can do it!:D

Yeah sure...welcome...the more...the merrier ;)

12-14-2009, 09:12 PM
I am down to 151.4 lbs...don't think I'll weigh in before Friday so that's my report for this week.

12-15-2009, 03:27 PM
OK, down another 1 lb. 8 total. yay me.

12-16-2009, 10:08 AM

12-16-2009, 11:24 AM
Great work guys! :carrot: So Amy does that bring you to your Christmas goal of 186?

12-16-2009, 05:24 PM
You see - I get sick and never lose a pound. Darn!

Hope everyone is feeling better now, Amy.

12-17-2009, 04:11 PM
Thank you Kim I think we are over it. My daddy is the only one left to get sick and if we can make it tonight it should be gone. I hope!!!!

12-17-2009, 10:21 PM
I reached ( actually crossed ;) ) my 10 lbs goal for this 100 lbs challenge...:carrot:

And I am actually down to 40' 149.4 lbs

12-18-2009, 04:25 PM
Whoo hoo!! Way to go MJ!!
There is no way I will hit my Christmas goal but at least the scale has been going down at times and not going up so much! Such a hard time of year...FH and I have some MAJOR resolutions for 2010!

Holy crap Nicole! What are you doing?? Those lbs are falling off you!

Oh, what should I use as your starting weight. What I had in the chart is different than your ticker?

12-21-2009, 12:18 PM
Wow, MJ, Nicole - you guys are doing great! Nicole- you've lost like, 10 lbs in 9 days! Awesome!

We will see how tomorrow goes. I need 2 lbs? Hmm - lots of water drinking in my future today ;)

Great job everyone!

12-22-2009, 07:01 PM
I am the same this week.
Great job to MJ and Nicole!!!! you go girls

Everyone is doing well. We hope not to get anyone else sick this year. I need to be eating better. more veggies and drinking water. I am 6 pounds away from my original goal I need to meet that goal and start another. Hope everyone is doing well and girls we are getting close to our 100 pound goal. That is going to be quite an accomplishment

12-23-2009, 11:56 AM
Alrighty...last chart before the new year! Way to go girls! Almost halfway there!

12-23-2009, 12:34 PM
Thanks Kristin....yesssssssss we can do it!!!!!!!!!!!
Hopefully New Year will bring new motivations for us all!!!

Happy holidays!!!

01-06-2010, 02:44 PM
What happened to the 100 lbs challenge?Are we officially off????

01-06-2010, 03:30 PM
Well, i suppose that we could keep going - the thread doesn't specifically SAY it was for Christmas!
