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: 340.8
Gw: 335.8

Side note: I kind of feel guilty when I win- we are all working hard- I have so much more weight to lose than most of you guys, so it's a bit easier to shed five pounds right now--- that being said- I love these challenges!!! We are all amazing and its great to know you guys are right here with me slurping on lemon beverages!!!:)

_________

PS - I made a suggestion in the previous thread that we start next challenges (not this one) based on weight percentages. Let's say 2 %. It would be easy to figure out how many pounds are needed for every challenger. Example for 150 lbs, it's 3 lbs. It would be more of a level playing field. See how competitive I am? :o

What do you think? Good idea or bad idea?

Matisse, My 2 cents, I like the 5lb challenge the way it is, but would probably join a 2% thread as well if someone started it. Can't have too many motivators!

Matisse... I too like the easy to post 5 lbs off.. but I would try and % off weight loss thread... (its hard to see little % for lbs off when you are a big girl like me :) ) But I would do it! I like math!!! :)

Didn't budge this morning- but no complaints!

Matisse- I'd be on board for a percentage challenge as well as this one- back before a had a baby and gained my weight back- these five pound chalkenges are one if the main reasons I lost 75 pounds the first time. 2 weight loss challenges ought to make the pounds melt off! Lol

I'm going away until Wednesday- my sister in law is having a baby And we are heading there to be with them. I'm a bit nervous because this is the first time since I started losing successfully that I will be away from my food and my schedule. I aim to make the best choices humanly possible- and have a back seat full of natural, healthy snacks for the way. Told my husband that the only rest stops we are allowed to go to are ones with at least a subway to stop at! Lol
I won't be weighing in until Wednesday morning- but hope to check in with you guys daily!

Good luck!!!!
Ps- looks like only believe will have won this by the time I get back!!! Way to go, lady!

My scale is going the wrong way again 251.6 was the final number this morning, but my arms, shoulders and back are sore from the gym so thats probably what is holding the water. coffee and lemon water today for sure!

I Lost the .2 gain and got back to 260.6 but I was expecting a little bigger loss this morning. I was so busy yesterday. Maybe tomorrow's weigh in will be better. I wanted to be in the 250's by Thursday but I don't know if I will pull it off.

Thank you wannaskipandlaugh Instead of a big cake my hubby usually gets me I will be having mini cupcakes and I plan to work them in because I gotta have cake or it's not my birthday and at 47 I deserve it. LOL :) I hope that water weight flushes out soon!

Mara you are getting closer to those 240's :)

I was hoping for another loss this morning, I wasn't expecting it to be a pound down! I'm nervous for tomorrow.. I can either win this thing (ETA unless one of you sneak up and grab it), stay the same or go in the wrong direction. LOL

Only Believe you are doing awesome! maybe the idea of winning tomorrow will help reign you in today?

I've been eating out instead of cooking so sodium gain today again... If only I could be more driven to cook maybe I wouldn't retain water all the time! oh well at least the trend is down, down, new low, spike, down, down, new low so i can see progress.
