What are your weight loss goals for the Merry Month of May?

State your goal and track it throughout the month with a supportive and encouraging group. We'll compile our goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration. Woohoo!

For fitness and exercise goals in May, visit our sister thread: May Exercise Challenge (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/chicks-up-challenge/280678-may-exercise-challenge.html#post4724481)

Count me in again this month. I'm aiming for a 6lb loss this month -- that would take me out of obese range and into overweight.

SW: 163
CW: 163
GW: 157

(If I can manage a pound more than that I get my third broccoli)

My goal is to average a weight loss of 1.5 to 2.0 lbs per week. Doing the math would put me at between 167 and 169.25 by the end of May, and I'll be happy anywhere in that range. So, my goal for May is to exit the 170's and move into the 160's!

Ah...I have now seen the post above, so I will use the same format (I'm new and still figuring things out). I'll use the approximate midpoint of my end-of-May range as my goal weight:

Results as of May 20...4 lbs lost to date:

Great job ladies! It's great to see you all making such progress. I headed the wrong way this weekend. I'm not sure if it's due to the salty Mother's day food or if it's the cocktail I had with dinner Sunday, but I was up 2.5 pounds on Monday morning. I'm down half a pound this morning but it gets so discouraging.

I'll do good all week & watch my weight go down steady through the week & then on the weekend I'll eat or drink something that makes me skyrocket back up. It happens almost every week! If I could just learn to behave better on the weekends I would probably be a lot farther along in my weight loss! :)

Darn weekends! But they're so much fun!

Hope everyone had a great one!

I'm thinking that I am probably not going to make goal this month. 5.4 pounds in 16 days? I doubt it. BUT! Down is good and I'll take whatever the number is. I was hoping to be 160 by June 30th so we'll see. My dh and I were invited to a beach party on July 3--it'd be nice to wear a bathing suit even though I'm still going to be the fattest one there, seriously all the girls are 5 foot 8 and 120 pounds. Oh well. I hope everyone's having a bit more luck than me this month.

bg124 Belated thank you! :D If I check in on Wednesday, I usually don't check the whole thread.:o

I weighed myself last Wednesday, but I have no idea of what is my real weight :?: I have two digital scales. The old one fluctuated anything between 202.4 ad 202.7, while the new one said 101.7. There was always 0.5 kilo difference, but I don't know anymore. I suspect the new one is closer to the truth, since my trousers have become very baggy, but I don't know. I also don't have the faintest idea about which scale is closer to the one in the nutritionist office as I forgot to check that when I was there :mad:

I am sticking with 102.4 kilos, as I prefer things to be harder.

So, progress:
May 1st: 103.3 kilos
May 8th: 102.7 kilos
May 15th: 102.4 kilos?

In other news, despite losing weight, I have been unable to get new clothes, because my country sucks at big sizes, and the store that always get big jeans has decided to only bring skinny or super skinny, low rise jeans T_T Unhappy doesn't even describe how I was feeling.

Teacher2B: that sucks that you can't find smaller clothes as you lose weight. Could you order clothes off the internet, by mail? What about sewing your own or finding someone who can sew for you? That won't help with jeans, I guess, but some pants styles can be made at home. It will be so great when you can fit into the sizes that the stores have. I found it was important to have clothes that fit on the way down, so I hope you find a solution!

Since I already bought my tickets there's no way that I'm not going. And EDC cost me so much money that I refuse to not have as much fun as possible. I'll just have to make sure that I don't go up in weight before the 24th. Ugh.

Aye, I will check on local sites, as I want to wait till I have lost some more weight to try the international sites, since I have not been dieting for a month still. Though I am probably going to get some bras that way next month, since the best bras I have had were bought in the UK (getting big bras here is a pain, as most of them are minimizer or horribly shaped). I usually had trousers made smaller by a seamstress, but I did a good spring cleaning a few months ago and most of my bigger trousers were given away.

I will probably go to the bigger stores in the capital this weekend, as there are a few stores that usually bring different jeans and trousers (there is a store I can always go to buy a pair of jeans, but i want to avoid it as much as possible,as they are very expensive.

Thanks for answering :D

Great job everyone.

Sum, I haven't been to Sagebrush, but I can't seem to stay away from an even better Mexican restaurant in Livonia, Las Palapas. Why does Mexican food have to be so fattening? It's usually my splurge for the week & I try not to over do it, but...................... It's so darn good. :)

I was out of town for the weekend for business & was totally shocked when I weighed in on Monday. I haven't seen my weight jump into the 170's for almost a month, even with TOM. But thankfully it seems to be moving down so I'm hoping it was just an awful lot of water weight from bad eating & drinking over the weekend!

I am so impressed by how motivated everyone is. I so want to lose the weight, but I don't want to give up everything. I remember being that motivated last year when I was losing weight a lot more quickly, so obviously I need to rediscover my motivation. I've been really good about my exercise, I just love my food. Too much obviously :)

Have a great week everyone!

TOM pushed my weight this week....Also am going on three days cigarette free* I slipped up and had one but that's it. *ugh* life kinda sucks right now, but I know this is for the best.
I ran yesterday. Normally I can run, but only short distances then I need to stop and walk for a while. Yesterday I ran further than I ever have before. My lungs felt great. It was quite a motivator for me. My DH is so proud. We're quitting together.
I'm ALMOST out of the 180's. Hopefully this weight gain is in fact TOM and not quitting smoking weight.
