100 lb. Club - Mothers and Others Mother's Day Challenge

04-02-2004, 03:29 PM
Someone suggested a Mother's Day Challenge so I thought I'd run with it.

I'm going for a non-scale goal this time. My goal is to be in a regular size 12 (rather than just a relaxed fit sz. 12) by Mother's Day.

What's your goal?

how many weeks until mommy's day...let me figure it out?

well...that is only 4 weeks away? Do you think that is enough time for a challenege? I think it will work! O.K....let me ponder on how I want to challenege myself! :lol:

I'll go for a weight challenge since it's inbetween a couple of my personal dates set so let's say 265.

My goal is to get down to 230.

My Mothers Day goal is to get out of the 20's! :goodluck:

My goal is to have my "too tight" pants fit well by Mother's Day.

(I have a lovely doctor's scale in the kitchen but tend to become obsessive about weighing myself so I've covered it up with piles of stuff. I don't actually know what I weight right now. I have to learn to weigh myself without the obsessiveness eventually I guess.)

I would like to lose 3 inches this next challenge. I also challenge myself to be able to get into the size 18 pants that I bought last week. They are a tighter fit than other 18s, so it may be a challenge! Oh, I guess I better check my inches tonight so I know what to base it on! Would love to be at 205 by Mothers Day, but that may be pushing it :)

I think my challenge is going to be just to be on plan... hmm... that's sad.

Well, closing in on 210 wouldn't be bad either! (I've never made it into the 2-teens since like... probably middle school when I actually WAS that heavy. That'll be nice.)

My challenge to myself will be to meet my mini goal of 225 pounds. This should be attainable and maybe even a few more pounds off would be nice. You all take care and have a great day. :)

My goal will be to be down by at least 15 lbs. and 1 pant size.. Hopefully more! :)

Thought I'd bring this back to the top since it's only a week away.

I had an incredibly bad April as far as weight goes, and, heck, just in general! I haven't been on a scale in weeks, and I don't think I'm going to make my goal. But, I'm back on track and that certainly feels great!

How is everyone else doing? I think I read that someone already made their Mother's Day goal?? Who was that?

05-03-2004, 01:28 PM
Looks like I won't even be close but when I reset my Memorial Day goal, I didn't adjust this one but that's okay. At least I'm still OP and not gaining. :)

Well, I met my Mother's Day challenge as of last week. I hope I don't blow it when I weigh this week. We shall see. We still have a few days to go, so everyone keep up the good work.

Woohoo!! I did not blow it! I weighed today and I am down 3 more pounds. I am so happy that I met my goal and then some.

A few more days before Mother's Day now. How is everybody doing? :) :)

Congradulations Tammy32. You wont have to worry about gaining more pounds before mothers day, in fact I bet you will even loose more. You have been doing a great job. Happy mothers day everyone.... well almost mothers day :D

I'm not sure if you giving you the URL for here was a good idea or not. Lol...I know, you are my biggest supporter from a distance. Guess that makes it all the better for when you get home in five months. Thanks for the encouragement. Maybe you will stick around for the motivation too.

I was wondering who the cute penquin was talking about! Lucky you...having such a supportive partner! He's right....there is a lot for you to be proud of! You have been doing amazingly well Tammy! Plus you have been so supportive of the rest of us on our "journeys".

05-07-2004, 03:39 PM
Kris, he is very supportive no matter what I weigh. I am lucky. He's trying to loose weight too, but it is harder for him since he is out to sea and the ship's galley serves food that is not that good for you. I suspect he will be posting more here now. :) :) ;)

Celina, I've not seen you around in awhile. You doing ok??

05-08-2004, 12:41 AM
Im just lucky to have her to support =) Shes great. As far as my diet goes, yeah the ship doesnt have great food, but I also like to cheat a lot :D Plus if I went to the gym Im sure that would help. Maybe some of my wifes motivation will rub off on me. Maybe some of everyone elses around here will also. Everyone here seems pretty determined, and it seems to be paying off. Great job to everyone. :coffee:
