The Spring Challenge ends this weekend, is anyone interested in doing another one? Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 31st this year, we could run one from April 5th - May 31st.

I'm not sure what I'll use for a goal this time. I'm thinking I'd like to get a handle on my snacking though... and stop eating after 8 pm.

Me:) I may pick the same goal. Knowing I had to admit to cheating on here was a great deterrent! Or maybe I need to focus on something else. But I am determined not to miss the start day this time!

I'll join in! I'm going to participate in the 20-Somethings BL challenge too this month so I'll have accountability overlapping on accountability!

I'm thinking about it Heidi. I love the idea but had some real trouble remembering to log the last time.

I've been doing well with the Spring Challlenge, but don't you know I forgot to post there yesterday? :dizzy: I did manage to lower my BMI into a more acceptable range, and that was my goal, so I'm very pleased. :)

I'm up for another challenge, but I'll have to think about a new goal.

I've had a lot more "met the goal but forgot to post" days this time, too.

I'd like to get to 136 and get my BMI in the normal range!

I wonder if it's better to not sticky it and just let people update so it's at the top more often than not?

I think I am in. An all exercise goal (I coped out a lot with water) I think...or veggie eating as I seem to lax in both...

I would like to join this challenge! Not sure what my goals will be, but one will definitely have to be exercising at least 5 days a week. Memorial Day starts pool season and I would love to have firmer arms for my swimsuit and tank tops!

Good luck everyone, see you on April 5th!

I make the graphic a link in my signature so I can just click that and go right to my post to edit it. That's been helpful for me. I do my exercise challenge post that way too.

I'd love another challenge! The last one really jump-started my return to SBD.

I think I managed to reel in my binge-y snack-y grazing. So I'll have to pick another goal. Exercise probably, as I haven't gotten back into the swing of that yet.

Yeah - the posting everyday was rough. Even when I was here lots (like yesterday) I'd forget. But I'll keep trying!

I started the challenge thread. (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/south-beach-diet/198319-april-may-challenge.html)
We won't begin posting for points until Monday, but the thread is there waiting for sign ups. :)

Reminder - you get 1 point for DOING whatever your goal is and a second point for POSTING in the thread each day. If my goal was "Eat breakfast within an hour of getting up and stop eating before 8 PM" I'd get 1 point each day that I did those things and a second point each day I posted in the thread saying I'd met my goal for the day.

Be sure to choose a goal that you can track daily for this challenge. :)
