Everyone is welcome to join in this challenge!

Here's how it works:
Post your starting weight (SW) and your goal weight (GW).
Come back any time to update with your current weight (CW).
The first person to reach their 5lb goal is the winner!
That person then starts a new thread for the next 5 pound challenge.

Have fun and good luck!!!

Congratulations NewLeaf, awesome job! What changes have you made? Counting calories, anything else?

I saw a 'new number' today, so close to my original pre-pregnancy weight!

If I meet this goal I will be just 0.5 pounds away from my July 4 goal!

CleverName Really the only changes were (a) getting serious again and (b) counting calories to help me understand what getting serious again meant. Basically, it turns out that getting serious meant cutting way back on between-meal snacks.

Meh - I managed to lose about half a pound on the last challenge. Might have been that family party I went to on Saturday. I did miss lunch to make up, but I managed to put away a pizza (although a thin and crispy one), a couple of glasses of wine and some chocolate cake - only a small slice, but it was obviously enough to make a difference. I did count all the calories though - every single one - I even weighed the cake - and it was no higher than maintenance.

Been really good since then, but the scale is being stubborn.

So close!! I have no idea how that happened...I've had cheat days, haven't been exercising as much....all I can think id that when I was only eating 1500 calories a day and doing an hour cardio a day, plus weights and not losing my body was going into starvation mode or something. Any insights?

Looks like I was on a 'down' day the day this 5# challenge started. I am going to be very very good this next week- I've been a part of a 8 week challenge with some ladies from my birth club, and I'm currently in #2 place. Everyone will send the winner of the challenge $20, so about $140 (There are 8 of us). I could really use that money! Plus I have a wedding in a couple of weeks, I am the MOH, and I want to be down another 5 lbs!

Delayed leaving until this AM, so got to step on the scale again. Uptick from yesterday. To be expected I guess, I ate way too much cheese yesterday! Better today! I am planning to not gain, but man, I'd love to get back to the bottom half of the 150's! Vacation here I come!
