Hello 3FCers! This is where we compete to see who can be the first to lose 5 pounds. Anyone and everyone is welcome. The idea is to focus on small goals, which helps out people like me who have a lot to lose! This is a great place for newbies, since I was one last week. :) I was the winner of the #218 challenge and I'm looking forward to competing with everyone again.

Just list your start weight, current weight and goal weight and check in every so often to update us on your progress. Good luck!

Congrats shepherdgirl

I took the last challenge off, but I'm back for this one. I've been at the exact same weight the last 4 days so I'm hoping to see a bit of a whoosh soon.

Here's to the next 5!! I'll have to go look back at the last thread to see how much I ended down. Not a lot, but I'm happy with any downward movement!

ETA: I started the last challenge at 159.7, so down 3.1 pounds. Yay!

shepherdgirl
04-18-2013, 02:12 PM
Thanks for the encouragement! :) But this always happens--I usually do super good when I first get back on the wagon, but it doesn't take long for me to fall off again. I think this challenge helps out a lot though, because it really motivates me to focus on just 5 lbs at a time.

It drives me crazy to record my daily weight, so I probably stick to posting my normal weigh-in day (which is Sunday), at least until I get closer to my goal. This next week is going to be more of a challenge since I'm going home for the weekend (and the food is more plentiful and yummier) and I have a lot of tests/homework at school, which usually causes me to place eating healthy on the backburner.

Good job! That's awesome for just a little over a week. That's probably closer to what I actually lost minus the water weight. I feel kinda guilty for relying on the first week water loss, but it's what the scale says, so I'll take it. :D

Shepardgirl, I was only down so much be use I was up the week before. My rate is slow... And I don't expect to ever win. LOL. But I like ths challenge because it always sets a new "ceiling" for me. It helps me to keep weightloss in the forefront and to maintain downward momentum.

Good job everyone! Looks like it's really coming off for many of you ladies (my apologies if we have any men that joined us, but I didn't see any).

Anyways, here's mine. Stayed the same for the past 4 days--knew it was too good to last. But on the bright side, since it is my official WI day, I got a new chick avatar=30 pounds lost! :carrot:

Wow, a lot of you guys are doing awesome. My weight has really slowed down. I weighed in the exact same the last 8 days which was really frustrating. I finally saw a bit of movement this morning but not a lot. I think I have to get used to it being a bit more difficult to lose every pound.

Good for you... There are a few more here that with a serious SWOOSH just might give you a run for your money I am thinking!! Don't we all just feel better today with what we have lost recently.
