Let's post our 4th of July goals here... sorry for any confusion caused by the earlier post :D You don't have to retype those goals if you don't want to, of course. ;) -Apryl

Fourth of July = Apryl Jean @ 220 lbs.
This has been my goal for sooooooooooooo long and I would pretty much DIE if I made it. So I'm going to do it. I'm tired of excuses.

How about you? :D

05-27-2003, 10:53 PM
Okay Apryl...I have an aunt and her middle name is Jean...they used to call her Carole Jean Jelly Bean....:D

My July 4th goal is 210, which is .2 lbs. from my WW 10%, which is close enough for me!

05-27-2003, 10:58 PM
Ahhh!!! My dad calls me "Apryl Jean The Jelly Bean!!"

ANYWAY!!!........... ROTFLMAO!!! *Ahem* Goals, people? :D

05-27-2003, 11:20 PM
Okay I think I'm going for 205. It's a long shot but I think I can do it. I haven't been down there for about 2 years now. And if I make it...I just might cry.

I was thinking of 200 but I think that might be pushing it a little.

Here I go!!!!

05-27-2003, 11:39 PM
My goal is 215, which would be a 9 lb. loss.

05-27-2003, 11:58 PM
I'm going for 235, so that's 15 from where I'm at.

05-28-2003, 12:29 AM
my goal is 194, so that i have lost 50 lbs!

Must be unanimous. My daughter's middle name is Jean and we always used the Jelly Bean part too. She sort of carried on the "tradition" with her kids as one is Anna Banana and the other Amanda Panda.

Anyway, I'll set 205 for goal. It's five lbs down and a challenge as I've lost only about three the past six weeks. (Myrtle the Turtle?)

Ok had to go get weighed back at 330...grrrrr :rolleyes: SO my goal for July 4th which is a little over 5 weeks away is 310. I have eaten nothing but junk so this should not be impossible.

05-28-2003, 10:05 AM
This is my first challenge so lets see how i do. I will set a goal of 270 for july 4th! Thats 12 lbs from right now. Wish me luck!

I posted on the other thread. I'm going for 240 by July 4th. I'm going to have a tough month weight-wise, 11 days in Alaska on vacation, 7 of those on a cruise. And I'm having cataract surgery on June 30th.

In the past I would have used those excuses to call June off - losing weight, but I don't want to this time. There's always going to be something that I need to keep going. I've got a long way to go.

So 240 it is!

05-28-2003, 06:35 PM
I'd like to be 224 by July 4. Ten pounds should be doable, I think.

05-29-2003, 06:32 PM
I want to be at 209 by July 4th (14lbs to lose). :)

06-01-2003, 09:32 PM
I just wanted to bring this back up to the top so more people know it's going on. ;) Good luck everyone! -Apryl

Hmmm.... well I just made my Memorial Day Goal this past week -- I think because of adding the weights to a larger extent. Still, I am going to say 250 for my July 4th goal -- which will put me at a 40 lb. loss.

I thought I posted this elsewhere, but it looks like my goal is the same as Julie's --270.

06-02-2003, 12:37 PM
I'd like yo see 287 - so that's a 10.5 loss from where I am. That would just thrill me to death!! :D

06-02-2003, 06:00 PM
I am shooting for 20 pounds loss with this June Points Challenge, which would put me at 198 ...so that is what I want by July 4th! I MUST be below 200 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!

06-02-2003, 06:22 PM
In a perfect world I would have a weight that starts with a 2 instead of a 3 by then.

July 1st is my 1 year anniversary.

"Twoderland" doens't sound as cool as "Onederland".

TwoDoorLand sounds a lot better than four-dourland. :)

06-02-2003, 11:18 PM

06-03-2003, 12:48 PM

300 by August

06-03-2003, 09:27 PM
Twoterville! I love that!! LOL Matt, you're doing a great job, so just keep it up!!

I'm going to aim for 210 by July 4th. I know that my weight loss is going to start slowing down now that the first 100 has come off, so I'll aim for 10 pounds in the next month.

06-04-2003, 05:12 PM
My sis is getting married on July 5th, so by that time I want to be 15 pounds lighter, which would put me at 213 pounds, but more important than the weight, I want to have a better looking, toned body by then, so I can wear a sexy dress http://www.themyscira.com/faces/icon_biggrin.gif

So... how are you doing? Do you think you'll make it?

I have 4 or 5 lbs to go, but I haven't weighed in about a week, so we'll see!! Good Luck Everyone! -Apryl

06-26-2003, 05:37 PM
I'm not going to make it, but Julie (dowsx4) has already made her goal!!! WOOOOOO!!!!! GO JULIE!!!!!

06-26-2003, 05:59 PM
i made it before TOM i just hope it returns when TOM leaves....

06-26-2003, 09:20 PM
I AM DEFIENTLY NOT GOING TO MAKE MY GOAL OF 170.I am going to try for 175.
335-highest(MARCH 2001)
165-LOWEST(.Sept 2002)
178 3/4-current

06-27-2003, 01:37 AM
i've got 3.6 pounds to go and we are at the 1 week countdown!

It will be close....

06-27-2003, 02:28 PM
I made it--yippee!!

06-28-2003, 08:11 PM
Congrats Julie & Sheila! I don't think I'm going to make my goal -- I'd have to lose four pounds this coming week and the way it's been going -- not gonna happen :(

06-29-2003, 12:24 PM
ugh. i usually weigh in every day but i haven't for the past 3 days. too many birthday party get together with friends! I am now 30 years old, does that I mean I have to grow up?

I figure if I avoid the scale for a few more days I might be pleasantly surprised when I weigh in...thats better than knowing now that I will be disappointed....

this might be the week that I either break even or even gain a little...but i'll let you'all know on Thursday.

07-03-2003, 06:25 PM
Did not meet my goal of 205 for Labor Day but checked in this morning at 207.6. I think I started at 210. Not as much as I would have liked but still my lowest point to date on this journey.


07-06-2003, 12:56 PM
i made my 4th of july goal of 50 lbs lost. =)

07-06-2003, 01:45 PM
I didn't make my July 4 goal, but with all the traveling in the past few months, I'm not surprised. I'm still pleased with where I am at, a whopping 52 pounds from my all time high last October. Now that I'm well below any recent low, I'm finally feeling like this is going to happen for me, in time. I want this for myself more than any donut, seafood vera cruz, pizza or tub-o-lard movie theater popcorn. But I also have come to realize that the occasional mac & cheese nugget is not going to kill me (it's a little wad of very yummy mac & cheese that is dipped in a batter, then deep fried---so tasty, but very rich, mom & I share an order if we get them).

So that's where I landed for my 4th goal, about 6 pounds shy of the goal, but in a much better place as far as the overall outlook for the longterm success.

i made my 4th of july goal plus. i was 268 and my goal was 270!
