Well, I was trying to think of a day to reach my goal by and I decided that the official first day of summer would work. My birthday is May 31st (I would love to reach my goal by then) but June 21st seems like it will give me some "wiggle room". I will enter my weight every 21st of the month until June 21st. Never worn a bikini in public and I want this to be the first year that I feel comfortable enough to do so. Please join me! :hug:

I'm in another challenge with a very similar goal date, however I just got back from vacation and added a few pounds so I'm behind schedule on that one. Plus I like the idea of weighing in once a month so I'm in.

Hello PUPMOM5, MizMelis, muddpies, and Pink_Hurricane!! Feel free to check in throughout the month to say hello or ask for some motivation. Sometimes we all need a little extra push. I know I could go for one right now! I haven't worked out in two days, and I over indulged over the weekend! I need to get back to work.

*sigh* I'm *dying* to start going to the gym again. Seriously, I had this big conversation with a couple of my friends yesterday and one of them goes to the gym that i want to join when i move to the city(hopefully moving by May). I'm starting to get bored doing this just at home.

I''l come back on the 21st and post with the rest of the group! Good luck!! :hug:

Hmmm - I keep setting myself a 5 pound goal every month. Maybe this will keep me on track.

Today's weight = 192.6

February 21st:190/192.4

March 21st:185/193 not good. Wrong way!

April 21st:180/

May 21st:175/

June 21st: 170/ which will be the lowest weight since I retired in 1998!

(I'm setting up timely reminders to come in and update this whether or not I am down.)

Well I've been wanting to lose weight but I haven't actually had the motivation to just start doing what I need to do right. So maybe a challenge will help :D
I am hoping to lose 5-10lbs a month.

Hello ladies. My goal was to lose all my weight in 1 year. I think is will take longer than 365 days but every day I get closer. I planned to lose 105lbs and I have lost 53 already. July 27 will be my 1 year anniversary. June 21 is a month early but close enough.

I am in a First day of spring Challenge to get to 199. I have 13lbs and 5 weeks to go. I am not sure if I will make it but I will be closer to my ultimate goal than when I started. December and January were hard months. I am trying to get back on plan with diet and exercise.

Once a month weight in I will have to set up reminders too. 6lbs a month would be 24lbs lost which would be 188. My goal weight will be 185 which is rounded down. S0 my goal will be to lose 27lbs (in 4 months) by the first of summer.

February 21st: 211 lbs.
March 21st: 206.8lbs (not a good month)
April 21st:
May 21st:

Forgot to check in on the 21st...oops!

I had originally posted that I wanted to make my ultimate goal(145lbs) by the first day of summer. But after some reflection of my weight loss the last few weeks, I realize that it is not going to happen. I have been losing about 1 lb a week, so I have changed my monthly goals to a 4lb loss each month. If I get more, well that is awesome!!

Good luck this month!! :hug:

I just got on here to see what my March 21 goal is (181), and that means 6 pounds in three weeks. I can do this. We all can do this. I love these challenges because they really motivate me to keep up with my plan!

Jennifer1966

One week until next "21" weigh in! I'm not sure I'll meet my goal, but hopefully I'll be close! Hope you guys are still with me on this challenge!

3 days to the weigh in. I have another 2lbs to lose to reach my goal for the month. Its all good. This last month I was on a huge plateau. Its finally starting to break. Eating too much salt last night did not help. LOL.
Have a great day Ladies.
