Wow this challenge has gone by fast! Sorry for getting booted the other week. I went to WW before going out of town, but then forgot to come here and enter my weight! I had a pretty intense gain from Thanksgiving weekend anyhow; still recovering. I'm starting back on c25k this week. I set a goal for my wellness challenge at work to be able to run 1 mile by the end of January. I'm a bit behind schedule for that and my 15 lbs weight loss goal. So it's time to get serious for me. I have a vacation to win!

Work hard on you last week ladies. Go out strong!

12-13-2010, 08:17 PM
Wow, only one week. I think I am probably done losing for awhile. It is just too difficult right now with the holidays and this cold weather. I am hoping to maintain though.

12-15-2010, 07:46 PM
Will you join us in the next challenge Terapet- to help maintain- or will you move onto the maintainers board? Either way- GREAT JOB in reaching goal!!! I know I WILL join you one day.

Shan you card arrived today! Thank you!! Merry Christmas.

Hope everyone is doing well this week. It's flying by. 2 more days of school for the kids so they are bouncing off the walls. I switch to evening shifts at work for next week which will throw me for a loop. But it's better than forking out big $$ for daycare.

12-16-2010, 12:05 AM
Hello all.

Mel- Glad you got the card! :)

Terapet- Please say you want to stick around for maint. It wouldn't be the same without you! :) :hug:

Results from this past week:

Terapet biggest loser with -.5lbs

Overall team had a gain of 4.79lbs, +.37%

The last week is halfway finished. Hang in there team.

Looking forward to the next challenge myself. I've really struggled this challenge. Let's go red team!

12-16-2010, 09:34 AM
Mel- I got your card today too! Such a cute family picture! Thanks so much! Your card was so sweet. :)

Good Morning Girls (or whatever part of day to you Shan),

I expect I will be around for the next challenge. I am only hesitating because I have hit kind of a rough spot and I don't know what to write when mostly I am just plain overeating. Ugh. Hopefully I will get over this soon. (Like January 2nd!) Plus, I am going to need you all to lose my expected holiday weight gain and perhaps a few more after that. I have been making vegetable soup every week to try to fill me up and keep me away from the bad stuff but it is only helping a little. Yesterday was just a bad eating day. Today will be better.

Mel-Oh my, evening shifts for the week of Christmas-yikes. You are Super Mom. It's worth it though and it will be fun to see the kids during the day.

12-18-2010, 12:55 PM
Terapet- that's what we are here for! To help each other through the rough patches :hugs: you've gotten this far- now it's time to celebrate your triumphs!

Speaking of triumphs, I stepped not the scale and saw a number I've seen 3 times this week(151.4), so I'm claiming it as official for my weigh in. Especially since we're going to the neighbors for a Christmas gathering later today and I'd like to have a glass of wine.
I'm in baking mode as I've done none this holiday season. I have 2 loaves of gingerbread in the oven and am moving onto Ginger snaps.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday.

Hello red team:wave:
Maybe some of you remember me? I started this with you but ending up getting myself booted off.
I have come back and signed up for the next challenge, I really need the push and encouragement of the group here.And I realize that I need to put more effort into the group also...

Congrats to all of you still holding strong, it looks as if you have all done very well:cp:

It's the last weekend of the challenege!!! Weigh in was, well, AWESOME today! I finally reached the 220s. The 230s were a long, arduous journey marked by several return trips to the 240s, so I am very happy to be here. I'm also now "class I obese" according to those BMI charts that have divided obesity into 4 ranges (class I, II, III, and IV) instead of the typical 3 (obese, morbidly obese, and super-morbidly obese). Oh, and I finally get to rock the awesome purse that I bought a while back as a 220s incentive.

I hope all you ladies end the challenge on a high note as well. And if not, well, you can start the next challenge on a high note!

12-18-2010, 08:07 PM
BlueEyes- Welcome back! See you next challenge!

Aclai- Congrats on getting into the 220s! GO YOU!!! :celebrate:

Mel- Congrats on your loss.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Weigh in time is almost here!

12-19-2010, 10:08 AM
Another challenge completed. This one went fast. I hope you all enjoy a nice Christmas.:hohoho:

Mel-:cheer3: You made some great progress this challenge. During the holidays no less. Nice way to start the new year.

Aclai-Congrats. You are going to be lookin fine for the holidays. Especially sporting your well earned new handbag!

Shan-I have been thinking about you. I saw some more stuff in the papers about the conflict over there. :hug:

12-19-2010, 10:25 AM
Terapet- Thanks for thinking of me. So far, everything is quiet over here. The press is really blowing things out of porportion. Though, evidently South Korea is wanting to hold live fire drills today or tomorrow and the UN wants to hold an emergency meeting because of it. We'll see what happens over the next few days. So glad your joining us for another challenge!!

12-19-2010, 05:38 PM
Can't believe how fast the challenge went.
This week has flown by. I've been going non stop, especially now that the kids are out of school.
Congratulations to all you ladies!

12-19-2010, 08:02 PM
Congrats to everyone who finished this challenge.

Sorry to say I had a massive gain this past week and a half. First time I have ever shown a gain during a challenge.

Ready to work my butt off and get back on the weight loss train for 2011.

Sorry team. I promise to try to be a better leader next challenge.

But, in my defense, it's better to post true results so that everyone knows, just because bigmid and I are leaders doesn't mean we are perfect in our weight loss.

12-19-2010, 10:34 PM
For the 2011 challenge:

Everyone, please update your starting weights. If you don't post a starting weight by December 23rd, then I cannot place you on a team. Thanks!

12-19-2010, 10:35 PM
Congrats to CanadaMel for being our biggest loser this week with -1.30%! :celebrate:

Also, big congrats to our overall biggest loser for the red team for this challenge.....TERAPET (-7.36%) :celebrate:

12-19-2010, 11:05 PM
Thanks Shan! WooHoo!

12-20-2010, 05:05 PM
Well Done Terapet!! And to all our Red Team Members!

My great weight was short lived, up a pound from the holiday parties this weekend. 'Tis the season!

12-20-2010, 05:11 PM
Congratulations Terapet and Mel!
Way to go everyone!

12-23-2010, 02:33 AM
