OK, so I didnt make my Halloween goal. I wanted to lose 10 pounds and only lost 4! :( I know some of you have already met your goal, and Thanksgiving is four weeks from now, November 28th. How much do you want to shoot for by then? I will try to reach my original goal for Halloween. I am on track now so hopefully I will make it.
any turkey day goal makers out there??

I want to be at 205 by November 23. So I guess that I will say 204 by Thanksgiving!
10-30-2002, 10:27 AM
You all amaze me with you're progress.
Thanksgiving..I will be at 213 by then.
I am giving it my all! That is a 10 lb loss. (I hope, haven't stepped on the scale yet..will be on Friday)

I would like to lose 5 pounds by Thanksgiving. I have weigh-in today at 11:00am, so I'll go for my mini-goalweight from that. Then by Christmas, about another 4 weeks, I want to be another 5 pounds lighter. Hoping to be right at about 220 for the New Year's.
10-30-2002, 12:03 PM
My goal is 8 pounds by Thanksgiving. That will put me at 207.5. I haven't seen the two-o's in a long long long time, so that will be very exciting!
WE CAN DO THIS!
10-30-2002, 12:11 PM
My goal for Thanksgiving is 8 lbs.
10-30-2002, 04:16 PM
Lets' be realistic (for once)...I'd be happy with 280. So 10 lbs by Thanksgiving.
10-30-2002, 08:36 PM
I didn't make my Halloween goal of 225 so I'll shoot for that for Thanksgiving. I weighed in this morning at 229.4 and I'll need to escalate my efforts to make the 225 by Turkey Day.
10-30-2002, 10:10 PM
GREAT. For Thanksgiving? I'll say.... all 2's.
10-31-2002, 10:00 PM
I have not met a goal yet. Not one. Should I even bother this time? Oh, well, what the **** - let's say 221. That's 10 pounds.
11-01-2002, 08:58 AM
I would be thrilled to lose 5 lbs by thanksgiving!!
I am at 209 - 204 would be my new weight.
11-01-2002, 01:51 PM
I'd be happy to achieve 290 again by Turkey Day. That is only 5#, but it's a beginning.
11-01-2002, 02:32 PM
I'm hopping onto the wagon. I got weighed yesterday still hanging at 328.5 (WHEW!!!) so I am going to shoot for 310. Totally doable since I haven't done a thing right in over a month.
All I want is 4 pounds. I like seting little goals. I want to be 174 by Thanksgiving. I think I can do it if I get back to sticking with my plan. (4 pounds doeasn't count the pound I gained last week as it seems to have disappeared now.)
11-03-2002, 09:05 AM
I have lost a pound so far. This goal I purposely made small because I actually want to acheive it! It is hard to set goals and continually not make them.
I am glad we are all setting goals -so lets work hard on getting it done! Turkey day is 25 days away I believe!

Down .6 this week. Happy about that but at this rate won't make goal. Have to see if I can pick it up a bit.
Well Darlin's I shot high for twenty pounds which I fell short by 8 lbs. I do not feel one bit badly about it as I was asleep for nearly two weeks straight. That uncontrolable sleep came upon me again ( MS does such wierd things to you) and I rarely moved more than to turn over in my sleep. The whole financial craziness has just ended with the news that Hubbys Disability has been approved and trying to survive on $800.00 a month still paying water , phone, insurances electric and so on has been a battle royal but Next month sanity shall return. I had just got over the sleeping when my back left for parts unknown and never even said goodbye!!!! I have been on a series of pills and pain medication which has made me swell up like crazy. Hopefully this will diapate in the next few days but On Halloween Day......
I weighed in at 260 1/2 .
7 1/2 lbs from now I will have lost 100 lbs!!!! I am excited about that!!!
For Thanksgiving I am sooting for the 7 1/2 plus 10 more. Inlaws will be here and it would just be so nice. If I don't get another of those great 10 lbs spurts well, I won't reach it but by George I can shoot for it and keep my fingers crossed!!!!!!!!!!
11-08-2002, 01:33 PM
I am going to change my Thanksgiving goal to 5 lb loss. That would put me at 285. I keep thinking that I am going to exercise and hour every day and follow my plan to the letter and lose 2 -3 lbs a week. And I don't ever do. All I REALLY want is to lose 1 lb a week. And not gain. I have been on a all or nothing kick. Now moderation is the name of the game. Work out more days than I don't, make good choices most of the time and do this thing...ever so slowly.
11-08-2002, 02:51 PM
Well, as of today, I have 2 pounds to go to reach the 205 November 23 goal! Wahoo! I am going to do it. As a matter of fact, today will be my first day being OP in a long time.

Hello all! I've just come across this site and was looking for a place to jump into the conversations, and this seems to be a logical place--hope you don't mind.
My goal for Thanksgiving is to lose 5 pounds. That will put me back to down to 280.
11-13-2002, 01:01 PM
Ouch - only two weeks left = not looking great for my goal. I am down another .8 this week for a total (I think) of 1.4 down and still 3 to go.
11-13-2002, 02:49 PM
Down another .5, only 1.5 more to go!
Anagram, you are doing great, and still have two weeks. You can do this!
How is everyone else doing?
11-17-2002, 12:39 PM
Feel free to jump in anytime you want. Congrats on your loss so far!!
Me I was doing fabulous then...bam!! major derailment. Today I am back on again though. I know I probably gained all that I lost in the past week or so, oh well!!
Jacobs Mommy-I am just like you described. Its all or nothing with me it seems. sooner or later I hope I get that I cant keep doing this to myself!!
Congrats to everyone who is losing!
11-17-2002, 11:42 PM
I fell off the wagon. It will be a miracle if I am back to 295 in two weeks, but I will try it!
11-20-2002, 08:51 AM
Down 2.6 this week for a total of 4 so far on this challenge. Only .4 to go to my minigoal. Fingers crossed.
11-20-2002, 01:11 PM
My goal was 226.6 & I made it! I weighed in at 224.8 today.
11-20-2002, 01:35 PM
Super! And a week still to go.
11-22-2002, 06:41 PM
It will be a miracle if I reach my goal as well--- but congrats on reaching yours early! I am so jealous you just dont know! But I also know it's my fault for messing around with trying a few days then blowing it a few. I need to stay consistent!!
11-22-2002, 07:36 PM
Congratulations to everyone who is loosing! I had my doctors appt. today and I lost another 2 1/2 lbs! I did good today as well. I went to a seafood restaurant and ordered blackened grouper (broiled with no butter) a salad with low fat dressing on the side and a baked potato with no butter or sour cream on it. I must have been hungry because it all tasted good and I didn't miss the extra's! I felt good because this is how I'm going to have to eat for the rest of my life, making better, healthier food choices. I drank water with my meal instead of soda or tea, trying to get it in somewhere anyway! I had my nails done too. I decided I need to start taking care of myself. I had a disaster last night though!!! I decided to dye my hair my usual dark auburn, but I picked out a different brand. It turned a BRIGHT pinkish red!!! I had to go out today and buy a brown dye and redyed it! It came out better, still a red tinge but toned down alot from what it was! If I had a hat I would have worn it today, even the principal of my daughter's school said "I see you changed your hair color!" I about died! :o Oh well, live and learn! It sure didn't turn out like the box! Thought everyone would get a kick out of it! Well, hope I do well this weekend, it's just me and the fridge and a daughter I have to cook for! Do I hear the Jaws theme coming from the kitchen?............

Whew! Made my goal just in the nick of time. I started at 229.4, ended up today at 224.2 for a loss of 5.2 on this challenge.
Incidentally, that also means I finally met my Halloween challenge goal, just a month late.
11-27-2002, 02:11 PM
Made it! And lost an additional 3.8 pounds, to boot! :D
Congratulations to all of you who lost. :cb:
11-27-2002, 02:23 PM
Sorry to say...not a chance I'll make mine. I'll be lucky to be where I started. :(
11-27-2002, 03:16 PM
Yeah, I didn't make it either.
That's ok, this battle between me & my body aint over yet!
I made my goal with an extra pound to boot!!!!!!!!!!
