100 lb. Club - 40 Day Countdown Challenge for Smallsteps!!

08-10-2012, 03:49 PM
I am taking a trip to Daytona Beach, Florida 40 Days from now (September 19-25), for some much needed rest, relaxation and to clear my head. I can't tell you the last time I actually took a vacation much less alone! I am also going to have to FLY there and back which is a big fear/challenge for me.

I have two goals I would like to accomplish in these 40 Days.

Goal One: Lose 15 pounds (Starting Weight 243.2) (Goal Weight 228.2)
Goal Two: No Pepsi for the next 40 days.

I will update this thread often the next 40 days with all my accomplishment, struggles, and frustrations!!

Wow, we're nearly the same weight right now! While I'm not going on vacation I hope we can reach our goals together. :hug:

Good luck and have fun! :)

Good luck to you! I'm going to Disney in the middle of Sept and I really hope I drop 10 more before then. Enjoy your vacation!!

Wow! great goals and they are also achievable :) I am a Pepsi addict and have not had one in almost a week so I know how that can be but if you get through the first few days it becomes a lot easier. Keep up the great work it seems that you have done great so far... congrats.

You can do this! You have such a great attitude and I love your posts. I'm putting my money on you accomplishing both goals.
