Hey ladies/gents!

I'm in need of making a goal! And need support in doing so, I want to lose 15-20 lbs by April 1st. I will almost be at goal at that point!

Wondering if there is anyone out there that can be a cheerleader or if they want the same thing!

Yes!! These are exactly my targets, too! I'm brand new to the site and still need to find all the tools and gadgets, but I'd be thrilled to be able to check in with someone (and feel encouraged when I inevitably get off track).

Hey!! i am working towards a 24 lb loss by summer. and i am also from Saskatchewan!! i for one find it harder to work out in this cold weather but am lighting a fire under my butt :)
good luck!

Yay! I'm not sure there is a set challenge just the weight it's self!
I'm glad we all have very similar goals! This will be great!
I'm in Saskatoon! It gets so damn cold in Sask, I don't go outside if I don't have to :(

Count me in! We are the same height and very close to the same weight right now! I started at almost 185 this summer and got down to 165, then went off track for a while and started back about two weeks ago at 172.6 and am currently at 167.4. That was this morning and hoping that it holds....course I will take another loss :-)
My goal is to get to 150 by April 1st. And motivation is definitely something that helps! I say we do weekly or daily weigh ins and monthly measurements?

This is awesome! We will get through this!

As of today (starting Monday) I'm signed up for a boot camp in my home town! I'm pretty excited but nervous! It is for 3 months and is 2 times a week!

yes! thats my goal too..i'm aiming for 5lbs a month for the next 3 months. I think (i hope) its doable. i just need to get motivated and off my lazy ***. I started in October and i've lost 15lbs since then..so I just need to keep the pace I'm doing now but I worried i've stalled. :-/

167.4 This morning. Starting to see a pattern with my weight loss. Drops a little bit, holds for a day or so, jumps ever so slightly and then drops a bit again. Hope I can keep it up!
I watched a show on TV last night about a girl who lost 90 lbs in 90 days. Not sure that is the healthiest thing to do but man it would be nice :-)

Is going to be hard to leave the family I'm with now(currently a nanny) but I know going to school is best for me and loseing this weight will help motivate me I think!lol.

I'm also really enjoying the diet I'm on now, I'm even considering becoming a vegitarian again.

Can I still join you ladies! And hello to Saskers from Alberta (hello to everyone else as well too)! :D I've been at this about a week now on my own and I went from 144 to 141 in the last 7 days, working out 5 days per week and skipping all the deathly diet killer "white" stuff. My first goal is to be 135 by Valentine's day to look more toned and smexy in my lingerie. Haha, but after that I want to set a goal of 130 for St Patties and then 125 for my birthday April 9th! Then my goal is to maintain that and tone up in all these other (mommy) type areas that are hard to tone for my 10 year HS reunion. I'm feeling pretty committed already and just want to help motivate and have people to stay in touch with when these stressed moments get the best of me and make me over eat. Hugs!

I wanna play! I'm ultimately trying to lose A LOT of weight and get overall healthy so that I can try for a baby next year.

April 8 is my anniversary, and that next weekend I'm going to Vegas with a girlfriend for her birthday... so I definitely have a few things that I want to be 20 lbs lighter for! LOL.

I've lost 10 lbs the last 2.5 weeks but I'm not expecting that to be 'the norm'. In any event, I'd like to be down to 295 by April 1st (losing about 2 lbs a week). Currently at 318. I track weekly on Fridays.

Hi Everyone - I think this a good place for me. It's winter here too (I'm in snow country in BC) and I hate going outside - because of the icy roads, etc. So maybe I can get a kick in the butt to get going with DVD;s & back to aqua fit (indoor pool of course! lol )

Lucid - It will be. You know from the inch that you are making healthy changes! Keep it up.

Honeybee - You are right about the 10 lbs being fast. I think it is a gift we get for getting started. But just keep moving forward. Two pounds per week is noble and still acheiveable.

Hi everyone, I'm just checking in to see how everyone is doing? Are you seeing the results you hoped for? If not, what can you do differently so that you can get back on track?

I'm doing well. Went to aquafit this morning, getting ready to declutter, clean, wash, organize the house, and then headed back to aquafit tonight.

I'm hoping for a 2lb loss this week. My weigh-in day is on Friday. I used to weigh everyday but I didn't want to feel 'controlled' by the numbers on the scale, especially with the day-to-day fluctuations in weight. So I'll peak sometimes mid-week :D, b/c that's just how it goes.

have a great evening and a great weekend!

Definition of CHEAT
transitive verb
1: to deprive of something valuable by the use of deceit or fraud
2: to influence or lead by deceit, trick, or artifice
3: to elude or thwart by or as if by outwitting <cheat death>
intransitive verb
1a : to practice fraud or trickery b : to violate rules dishonestly <cheat at cards> <cheating on a test>

Hi there, the reason I posted the definition is b/c I think it's important for us to remember and really understand what it means we 'cheat'. We are depriving ourselves of success, or depriving ourselves of reaching our goals.

You can do it honey! I agree with Sea, perhaps you can find something to do to comfort yourselves besides eating. Maybe play a few songs while you shake your booty to the tunes, or similar. Or if you do need to eat, try to limit the amount and also the type (perhaps instead of fatty foods you could eat some fruit or something similar).

It may take some time, but try different things until you figure out what works best for you! HUGS :hug:

I feel that way sometimes too, which is why I can't be one of those daily weighers people. The flux and constant up and down of day to day weight would drive me crazy. I need to see real results to have motivation to keep going. So I try to only weigh myself once a week or every two weeks.

But don't give up! Sometimes we hit a wall or there are weeks where our body is more resistant to losing the weight than other weeks. Just keep up the hard work. It'll come off! :)

I'd like to join this challenge as well! Twenty pounds by April 1st sounds amazing. I'm already in the Memorial Day Challenge down to lose two jeans sizes before Memorial Day. So a 20 lb. challenge for April 1st would definitely fit in with me goals!

Welcome! It's not too late. Even starting February 1st, a 20 lb loss is still achievable by April 1st. But whatever we can do in that time will be an achievement!

I just ordered an elliptical machine from HSN. I'm super excited! I tried looking for exercise equipment to have at home before but they were always really expensive and/or way too big for my apartment. But the new ProForm they were featuring today was much cheaper than most everything else I've looked at plus it folds up and it will fit in my walk-in pantry/closet. I can't wait til it gets here! I'm hoping this elliptical will help me meet my challenges! :D

I tried hard today to eat healthy and go walking, which i did (yay!) but then tonight me, my boyfriend and some of our friends went to the movies and afterwards they all wanted to go out to eat. Everyone kept saying "just get something! You cant live on slim fast and bananas!" so i gave in, and got chicken, mash potatos, and a roll. And now i feel terrible!

Yeah, that's very true. Back in 2009 I lost about 60 lbs but everyone thought I lost way more than that, no doubt due to inches lost. Even if the scale is staying the same or not moving much, tracking all the inches I'm losing will help me stay focused. :)

My update: I am so happy to be working toward my Anniv. goal (in April). I have 15 more lbs to go to reach my goal of 295. I loss 18 lbs in January and am soooo happy! I am hoping to lose 2-3 lbs each week so that is my goal, however I am super happy to be able to lose a little extra than anticipated.

Take care everyone. Less than 60 days until April! Let's keep pushing!

Congrats ladies, everyone is doing great!!

I am up on the scale (158.5) but I'm hoping it's just water weight as I went out with my girlfriends Friday night and had too much wine/sushi/dessert. I'm hoping that if I keep my calories down I will still see a loss on my official WI day (Wednesday).

Does anyone have Superbowl plans for today? I am having a few friends over and instead of ordering pizza I think we are going to make some so it will be a lot healthier (and cheaper!) I will probably have one or two light beers, but no more than that and no snack-y type foods is my goal.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far! :)

I just wanted to let everyone know I'm at now at 238!!!! THAT'S A TEN POUND LOSS! I'm so excited and am pretty sure I will hit my second mini goal(230) by April.

Wooohoo! Congrats on losing TEN pounds! That is fabulous. In my opinion, I think it is definitely possible to be in the 220's then. I will also say that, with only about 10 weeks until the end of April, that's about an avg of 1-2 pounds per week, so it would depend on your personal health goals and plans.

You can do it! Even if you don't get there by then, you will be even that much closer!

this is awesome chickies!!! YAY! we ca.n do this!!!

Look at you! Getting healthy and feeling great! So far I'm not losing inches, I'm losing pounds. I think that within the next 4-5 weeks that might start to shift. 13 lbs to go to reach my April 8th goal! That's about 1.625 lbs per week. 2 lbs is my going goal each week, so I'm so confident that I can make it!

Let's go ladies we're doing GREAT!

I completely agree. I'm kinda nervous about my weigh in tomorrow, but I know that I'm getting healthier and more fit. I feel such a difference when I go to the gym now as opposed to when I first started working out! I also finally bought a measuring tape so I could keep track of inches lost as well.

yes! thats my goal too..i'm aiming for 5lbs a month for the next 3 months. I think (i hope) its doable. i just need to get motivated and off my lazy ***. I started in October and i've lost 15lbs since then..so I just need to keep the pace I'm doing now but I worried i've stalled. :-/

so yeah..this didn't work out..i've lost only between 3lbs since posting this in the beginning of january. i was hoping to loose 15lbs by april 1st but i don't really see that happening.

today i'm at 139...i want to be 129 by april 1st. so thats 10lbs in about 6 weeks...i know realistically for me thats not going to happen..but i'm going to try!..u know what they say...shoot for the moon and you'll at least land among the stars.

Hi everyone!

How's it going? Are you on track for reaching your April goal?

I am down 2 lbs this week and am very happy about it b/c with the different hormonal issues I've had this week I wasn't too sure. I'm still on track to reach my April goal. I will be so happy if I can reach it (11 lbs to go), and I will STILL be happy if I don't reach it by my goal date (Apr 8).

I can feel a huge difference in my health. I make better choices, I do things that are good for me, and I'm realizing each week just how FANTASTIC and AMAZING I am :D

lol.

I'm happy that I'm losing weight, although I'm not losing much in the way of inches. I'm hoping that in April (when I do measurements) that will change!

Christina - WELCOME! We have something in common b/c my mini-goal is to get below 300 as well. Each week I'm getting closer and closer. Best wishes on your journey.

Surrender - way to go on the weight loss!

Skinny - mmm I LOOOVE chinese food! I don't even wanna think about it b/c my mouth will be watering:D. Good job on the weight loss! Also, I wouldn't worry too much about the chinese. If you can add a little extra working out into your schedule, you'll be good to go!

Angel - HUGS! Sorry to hear that you haven't been getting the results that you wanted. Don't give up, keep going! Even if you don't make it to your 'goal' by that time, you'll still be much closer to it!

Lucid - you can do it girl!! I know your weight has been hovering around the 169-170 mark but you have been doing so good with losing your inches! Are you still losing inches?

Have a great weekend everyone and remember to make good decisions that will help you get to your goal AND BEYOND!

Hey everyone! I made it into the single digits and not long now before I make it into Onederland! I think 20 lbs by April 1st is a completely reachable goal! :D

Yay! I'm not sure if my loss is a fat loss though.I keep takeing measurments but they are all over the place so I think I'm messing it up or something. I have been working out for about 40+ mintues 5days aweek and I think it's helping.

Hey there,

Congrats to all of you lovely ladies that are really sticking to your plans and goals. SUPER CONGRATS on all of the weight and inches lost! Woohoo!

About 5 weeks left until April 1st. So that's 6 weeks left for me. Gotta get moving!

I am down another 2 lbs this week, woohoo. I do need to step up the exercising a bit though as I think my body may be adjusting to the current routine and therefore its getting harder to lose more.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hey everyone!

This thread has been very quiet lately.

How's everyone doing?

I am about 6 lbs away from my April 8th goal! It's exciting to be so close.

Lucid - even if you don't make your initial goal by April, the progress that you have made is WONDERFUL!

So what's the next challenge going to be after April gets here? We're going to keep going right?

We got it!

Aww well thank you! What I figure is if I don't lose 20 lbs so what I'm working more on fitness and size now! because I am larger boned it will be hard for me to do these last 20+ lbs.

I think we should totally get ready for a new goal once April hits!

Hey hey, how's everyone doing?

4 lbs to go to reach my goal! ALMOST THERE!

I have had a couple of rough weeks lately, but have not gotten off track which is good. When I do measurements I don't see any difference, however the scale is still moving in the right direction AND I am down 3 full pant sizes!! Wow!

That has been a huge motivator for me. I was a little worried that I wouldn't reach my goal in April, but now I'm not worried ... even if I don't make it by then, I WILL make it soon and thats all that matters.

Have a good weekend everyone and please don't forget to check in with us.

So, I don't know where in the world everyone else is, however I Am staying committed to my goal and will continue to acknowledge my progress :D.

April is just a few days away, and I am 2 lbs away from my April 8th goal!!

I'm really excited. This has been a great journey for me. I am down 31 lbs since I re-started in January, and I have pushed myself in ways that I never thought I could.

I hope that we all reach goal. And even if we don't reach goal, I hope that everyone is THAT MUCH closer toward your overall health, fitness, and weight loss goals.

Don't give up ladies! We're ALMOST THERE! One day at a time.

Since my post on 2/3/11 I'm at a 9 lbs loss, I will take it ! I think 20lbs in that short time span was unrealistic for me , oh well. Hopefully it will be a 10lbs loss by April 1st .
