100 lb. Club - Christmas 2010 - What will you look like?
09-06-2010, 06:07 PM
I saw that someone revived a thread about this from 2008 and I thought it would be fun to speculate and set goals and wishes for this Christmas.
For myself, if I continue losing well I could lose 10lbs per month, so let's say -30lbs by Xmas...I'd be 211 and probably about a size 14-16! That will be my goal.
My wish will be for the clothing fairy to come along and bring me some clothes to get me through these sizes until I need smaller.

I like this post. I have taken a break from weighing myself for a while, but I hope to continue losing between now and then. If I could drop 15 pounds by Christmas, I'd be happy. Right now I am in a size 14, though some brands are still too tight. I just picked up a few great pairs of dress pants at Banana Republic in size 14 b/c they were on sale, but still a bit too tight. By Christmas, I hope to be comfy in any pair of 14's I put on, and to look hot in pictures!

I would love love love to be down around 200 by Christmas, and also to look more muscular, toned, and not as mushy soft. I would love to be able to see a difference in my face, and I would be so happy to be in pictures with my sons and actually not be ashamed to share those pictures with people. Are you listening, Santa?

I'll probably look a hot mess stressing out about my husband coming home. LOL!

My biggest goal is to consistently lose every week, so that by Christmas I can be at least 25 pounds thinner. :D

I'm not a regular poster in this forum, but I saw the title of the thread and couldn't help myself. Can you believe I've never thought about this???? Oh my goodness, now my mind is going a mile a minute, wondering what is reasonable/logical in the next . . . 16+ weeks.
Thanks for the thread - my motivation's been a little iffy the past couple of weeks, but this is a definite kick in the rear! :)

Wow! I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner! I think I am going to try for 40 pounds before Christmas. It's not that big of a leap if I can lose 10 pounds a month. All I want for Christmas is my smaller jeans back, my smaller jeans back, my smaller jeans BACK! I'll keep the two front teeth I have just get my butt in a size 15 or 16 and I would be on cloud 9!
09-06-2010, 07:56 PM
Hopefully I will be either at goal or no more than ten pounds away.
09-06-2010, 08:27 PM
:hug: under 200 lbs
I'm 229 right now
09-06-2010, 09:15 PM
I'm in a 12 now. I'd like to be a comfy size 10. :)
09-06-2010, 10:10 PM
Definitely would LOVE to be under 160...being in the 140's would be spectacular!! I'm going to work my @$$ off to get there!! :) Great thread!

I see me well into my healthy weight zone by Christmas - that's 13.6 pounds away to the top end of the range - and celebrating a year on plan.
09-06-2010, 10:21 PM
I would love to be at 233 by Christmas time..or at least December 31st. I want to see a difference by then. a Big difference and be able to buy a cute dress for the family that actually looks decent. I am hosting an ugly Christmas sweater party too so I want to actually look somewhat "cute?" in my ugly sweater. Haha!
09-06-2010, 10:26 PM
If I lost 30 lbs by Christmas I would be 255. I know it seems extreme, but I really hope I am in the 240's by Christmas. That would be a great gift.
09-06-2010, 11:15 PM
My plan is to weigh 225 pounds by Dec 25th.
And to weight less than 222 pounds by 1:11AM on 1/1/11.
While it's true, that I might not make it. But if I don't it will not be because I have not given 100% !
09-07-2010, 12:13 AM
What a fun thread!!!
I want to be overweight for Christmas!!!!
It's going to take a lot of determination and hard work but I CAN DO IT!!!
This would take me to 174 and a major goal :present:
09-07-2010, 12:37 AM
I'm with lolcat - I want to be overweight by Christmas. I'm actually aiming for Thanksgiving and then want to stay overweight through the holidays. I wouldn't mind becoming less overweight by Christmas but my holiday goal is just to not become obese again.
So 185 by Thanksgiving (that's 27 pounds now) and then then not go up through the holidays.
09-07-2010, 12:44 AM

i am 201 as of last wenesday so i think I can definetly do it.
09-07-2010, 03:17 AM
I'm aiming to be at my initial goal by Christmas Eve, 145lbs, so another 15lbs to go. The weight loss has slowed right down lately, but I'm going to really try.
09-07-2010, 07:55 AM
I'm actually hoping to be normal by then! :rofl: Not that I can EVER be normal. :D But seriously, normal BMI is 145 for me.
09-07-2010, 12:28 PM
My plan would be to be in onderland anything 199.8 I dont care. I want to lose thirty lbs by the end of this year and I hope to be in a size 14-16 pants!!!!!
09-07-2010, 12:42 PM
I have just started fitting into an old navy size 16, so I hope that by Christmas, old navy size 16 is loose on me.
As far as weight goes, if I lose 1.5 pounds a week up to Christmas, I theoretically can be around 194 pounds, which would be amazing! As long as I continue a downward trend until Christmas, I will be very pleased with myself for keeping it up. It will be the longest I've kept up with healthy living ever.
09-07-2010, 03:21 PM
I'd love to lose 30 pounds by Christmas. But, I would be happy just with 25. Heck, at this point even 20 would be OK!
09-07-2010, 03:57 PM
Hopefully I'll be in the 220's. I don't know what clothing size that will be, probably a sixteen I imagine, but I could be wrong.
What will I look like at Christmas? I'm buying me a green sweater dress, black leggings and cute boots of some type.
09-07-2010, 04:17 PM
Maltida we are the same :hug:
I won't be a 14 though.. I think 199 will be 2x for me.:o
09-07-2010, 04:18 PM
renstwin I hear you! I will would be thrilled to lose 20 too! :hug:
09-07-2010, 04:23 PM
I want to lose 30 by X-mas which will put me around 183. Anything under 199 will be gravy though. =)
09-11-2010, 06:39 PM
Oh gosh. This is a fun thread!
I'd love, love, LOVE to be a normal weight. I just recently (last week!) was no longer considered obese! I'm just overweight now. Really overweight, but NOT obese! It's an amazing feeling.
At my height, 149.5 is considered in the normal weight bracket. That would be so amazing. That means I'll have to lose like 27 lbs in 15 weeks, though. And it gets harder to lose as I get smaller (not too hard yet, but still). So that would be my ultimate goal.
09-11-2010, 08:04 PM
Well, my logical and responsible goal for Christmas is 225, a loss of 23.6 pounds.
But true Christmas wish is to see 219. That's 29lbs.
And my super secret, totally outrageous Christmas fantasy is that I will lose 2.5lbs a week for the next fourteen weeks. totaling 35lbs, and be 213 on Christmas Eve morning!:^:
09-11-2010, 08:42 PM
I would like to lose 25-30 pounds by Christmas. That should put me at about a size 20 jeans, which I hope to be wearing that day :)
