Everyone is welcome to join!

Here's how it works:

Post your starting weight (sw) and your goal weight (gw).
Come back anytime to update with your current weight (cw).
The first person to reach their 5 pound goal is the winner!
That person then starts a new thread for the next 5 pound challenge!

Have fun and good luck!!

Cw: 352.2
Gw: 347.2

Then again, it seems like since I've been nursing, NOTHING, no matter how many calories I may or may not eat wants to budge. Here goes.... cross your fingers for me. I don't care if I win this challenge, I would just like to come close!

Well done MountainMama! :)

I am happy to be within 0.2 of my pre-op weight this morning. Hopefully I'll be able to get below it this week :) I never expect to win one of these, my weight-loss is snail-pace, but I generally lose about 2-3lb each time, so it keeps me going!

Hi all! I've been away from this site for a while but need to start some challenges again. I'm weeks away from a complete year since my daughter was born. Before I was pregnant I was 208lbs working on getting to my goal of 160 (was up to 250). The day I gave birth I was 270 lbs. I was down to 220 but weighed myself today and was up to 226! So I join you all to get myself back on the road to my goal weight!

Just got done doing my second 10 minute set of pilates today. I had way too much dessert after dinner. We had people over and they brought cookies & well, I love cookies! I just have to make sure I make good choices for my meals tomorrow... although we are going to a food truck rally for dinner... maybe I need to do some zumba along with my pilates!

I'm pretty new here and i saw this and thought id check it out maybe save it to do later on when I need a push...but I'm going to just jump on in now...

I need a push to get going...and I hope seeing everybody's progress will inspire...

My name is Hope by the way...also can someone explain exactly how it works..I know "5 pound challenge" should speak for itself...I just need details...its the kind of girl I am

07-17-2013, 11:37 PM
Hey hopesfull I just joined for the first time but from what I understand everyone puts down their current weight whenever they join the challenge and the weight that is -5lbs from current. The first person to reach that 5lb goal starts a new thread of this challenge and everything starts over. So everyone participating now puts down the current weight that day and -5lbs again.

So for example, if I met my -5lb goal weight today i would start a new thread titled "5 Pound Challenge #229) and as people saw that a new one began they would move to that thread (abandoning this one), put their current weight down (new or the same) and start again.

Hope that helps!

Can't do it tonight.. going back to normal (less salty food this week).. But Maybe.. just maybe.. this is my 1 week of the month where the scale moves well.. so maybe..... I could win.. Its been months!!! Tho Superteach.. you are going to be hard to catch!!! :) and that is AOK in my book!

Sue that's awesome! What is Ian's super diet? He is one that still drinks a fair amount of beer right? did you attack the water with some good beer?

Hubby still hasn't weighed and since he is just barely starting to put in effort I am NOT pushing him lol I am down another pound though YAY!

Congrats losers! We've got a race here! You are SO CLOSE Sue! That Ian is on to something... He should patent his plan and make a fortune :D

I forgot to weigh this morning because I overslept and had to get to swim champs an hour away by 7am this morning. First time in 4 months my first thought when I woke up wasn't about my weight. That might be a NSV?

Yep PixiKat... Its Ians Beer only for dinner diet! It so broke my logjam I am so happy.... I am also going to true lemon water this week... That helps too and I had forgotten about that.

Oh and it looks like you are also closing in on winning the challenge, you went from stuck to -4 this week, congrats! all that work you did when the scale wasnt moving is totally showing itself now.
