WW Clubs and Groups - Turtles Race to Halloween WI Challenge Thread

Hi Turtles,
Here's where we can track our weight loss over the next 6 weeks until Halloween. I think that's a nice short amount of time to set a short term goal and stick to it.
Here's my goals:
1. Lose 1 pound/week
2. Exercise in some form 3x weekly.
I'm keeping mine short and simple to prove to myself that I can do this.
Best of luck to all of us. My starting weight is 194#
Let's WI on Sat. morning. Sound good?

Week One: Stayed the same. Lots of stress this week, so I'm okay with this. Next I have to work on getting through the stress by doing the things I know will release weight.
Goal: lose one pound this week
exercise 3X this week (my hip is feeling much better and I got on
:tread: today. Yay.

Hi everyone - once again, scale is the same @ 184#

Hi Gals,
Me too. I stayed the same. 193#. I maintain really well. Now it's time to lose the next pound. I can do it!

A week later. I weighed in a day late this week and am glad I did since I lost one pound. Yay. this puts me on track. Good luck to us all.
Weight: 192#

Hi turtles - not a good weigh in this week.
I guess all my "turtling" (staying the same) caught up with me & I
was up 2# this week at the scale. I knew I would be up abit (knee injury
and have been laying around this week & of course, snacking more) but
didn't expect that.
So have my work cut out for me this week.
Good luck everyone!

Bandit, sorry about the gain, but we all do that from time to time.

I was beating myself up because I am up.5# today. Then I had to remind myself that although I'm not doing blockbusters with this challenge, I am down 6# from early Sept. where I was in danger of crossing out of onederland and heading over 200# again. I weighed 198# and couldn't figure out why. Now I'm doing better-----we had loads of social engagements this past week including a wedding. I have been very hungry today, but I am counting my points plus and doing my best.

Good luck to us all!
234.6/192.5/180's and thinner :cool:

Weight was 166# on Saturday. Now due to my cycle the next 3 weeks or 2 1/2 it will be up about 3 pounds. Everyone is doing great. Keep up the good work.

Cherry!!!!! You are doing amazingly well. :goodscale:

I had a good week. Some times I was hungry, but I had a piece of fruit.
Not a perfect week, but I am at 192#!!! I'll take that and run. Since the beginning of this challenge I am down 2# and since Sept. I have stopped the crazy gaining I was doing, turned it around and I'm down 6# from there.

Let's keep on going! If you like, our last WI for this challenge can be Nov.3.
