South Beach Diet - Where's the July challenge??????????/

06-30-2004, 10:03 PM
Or am I looking right at it?????? :D

06-30-2004, 10:07 PM
Yep, looks that way. I will join you. My goal is 8 pounds for July.

06-30-2004, 10:39 PM
I'm going out on a limb and upping my normal 6 pounds to 6.5 pounds for July, which should bring me to 50! I hope, I hope, I hope!

06-30-2004, 11:14 PM
I'd love to do 8!


06-30-2004, 11:26 PM
Hmm I am going to go for 8 again so I can challenge myself. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed this time!

06-30-2004, 11:35 PM
This is day 4 for me but my goal is 10 lbs this month. I would be estatic with that.


06-30-2004, 11:37 PM
Since I seem to be really slowing down I'm going to shoot for 3 pounds in July. That seems so wimpy, but just once I would love to meet my goal!!!

I'm exercising like a fiend, doing weights, walking 2 miles and running 2 miles and doing situps. Drink 2 liters of augua a day, ate some nasty tasting cabbage, broccoli, califlower, celery, onion soup that I concocted. I won't tell you what it smelled like cooking, but I ate some for dinner. I'd be glad to mail you all some leftovers, after it sat in the mail truck, went across country and sat in your mailboxes, it wouldn't smell worse. :D

06-30-2004, 11:57 PM
ok you guys...I just started phase 2 my challenge is 6lbs for this month....I'm not sure how this phase will work....

07-01-2004, 12:11 AM
Okay, I went for 8 last time, and depending on what the scale says, I'm at 16 for the month. So I'm going to go for 10 in July.

07-01-2004, 12:23 AM
Wow Laurie you did GREAT!!!:bravo: I was wondering do you exercise as well? I am going to start walking around my neighborhood :tread: this week in hopes that it helps me out!

07-01-2004, 02:38 AM
count me in for 8 too!!

07-01-2004, 05:22 AM
I am going for six but they have to be REAL ones not water weight ones. I lost four pounds over night last night.....that is the sort of thing which I dont want to count.

So six pounds of fat in July. And exercise every day.

07-01-2004, 08:46 AM
Thanks for starting this, RNMOM! I'll consolidate and sticy this in a day or so. In the meantime, keep posting goals heree, Chickies.
I'm joining you in a wimpy three pounds for July.

I am going to be even more wimpy than you Ruthie I am going for 2. I am not joking I have not met a challenge yet. So I figure I can do 2. ( no snickering please.) I am getting rather depressed at the fact. ( mind you if I stayed OP it might happen)

07-01-2004, 09:26 AM
I'll go for eight. What the heck.

07-01-2004, 10:11 AM
I seem to be able to do five. So count me in for that. :coffee:

07-01-2004, 10:26 AM
My goal for July is 4 pounds

07-01-2004, 10:34 AM
I am going to try for 7. One more than last time, but I am starting over and have 1.5 weeks of Phase 1 to go. Hopefully, I can make this goal!

07-01-2004, 10:39 AM
Ok, sign me up for 8. I hate committing myself, so this is probably exactly what I need.

But can I borrow your 16 from June, Laurie? Wow, what a beautiful weight loss!


07-01-2004, 10:51 AM
It felt good to meet my goal so I'm going for 5 again this month.

07-01-2004, 11:08 AM
I have not lost a single pound in 2 months. Well, I might lose one week but I gain the next. Basically I have been maintaining. I know I have lost inches, my clothes fit better which is still progress. But its time.

I am going to start relatively small so I can get the joy of success. So count me in for 6 pounds.

07-01-2004, 11:21 AM
This will be my first full month challenge on the beach, so being that I should lose about 1 lb. or so a week, I think four-five lbs. is reasonable. I have a birthday in August, so would like to be close to goal at that time. Hey RNMOM, how about some of that soup :lol: (just kidding) ;) !

07-01-2004, 03:19 PM
I made the June goal of 5 pounds without too much trouble. So I'll go 5 this month too. It's a nice healthy amount. :)

07-01-2004, 04:16 PM
Ruth Put me down for 5 please. :)

07-01-2004, 04:22 PM
Ok i had a sad goal for july. not to GAIN anything. cause i'm going on vacation for a month to sweden (to see my boyfriend) and i ALWAYS gain weight there. plus we're going to Paris for a week as well. so if i can maintain while i'm away i'll be estatic!

sweet tooth
07-01-2004, 05:53 PM
Would like to lose 5 pounds by July 16, then maintain until the end of the month (vacation maintenance).

07-01-2004, 06:30 PM
This is my first challenge! I'm going to be optimistic and say 8 pounds for July. It'll be tough for me because I have a different event every weekend but I'm gonna try! I also am trying for at least 3 days of cardio and 2 days of strength training but would always like to do more!

07-01-2004, 07:12 PM
:flow1: I am going to shoot for a loss of 5lbs. I have been on the SBD for 2 weeks now with 2 big cheats on both Saturdays. I have still managed to lose 6.5lbs but I know it could be so much better had I resisted. This month, I'll try my first goal. Best of luck to us all in our goals ! Hoping for lots more exercise as I am starting another job at a resteraunt as well as keeping my job at the hospital, so lots of on feet time as well as exercising at the fitness center. :strong:

07-01-2004, 08:22 PM
Well, I have a vacation as well this month and fully intend to be completely decadent & indulgent. However, I'm still going to enter a 5 pound goal and see what happens.

Current Weight: 248

July Goal Weight: 243

07-01-2004, 10:20 PM
My weightloss goal for July is 10 pounds.

(I keep on changing my goal weight, but I'll arrive there someday)

07-01-2004, 11:02 PM
Put me down for 7. ;) G'luck everyone. :)

07-02-2004, 02:13 AM
Current weight - 185

July goal - to lose 6 pounds

This would bring the total weightloss to 20 pounds plus an extra one for good measure. :)


07-02-2004, 11:58 AM
I'm excited this is going to be my first challenge. :) I will be starting a pseudo phase 2 *more like 1.5* on sunday (that went fast) so im going to set my goal to be 17 lbs and to exercise everyday

07-02-2004, 12:52 PM
I'd like to go down a size for JULY !!! I hate looking at the scale so I'm lookin in the mirror!

07-02-2004, 01:43 PM
I will go for 10 lbs


07-03-2004, 03:09 AM
I'm going to shoot for 5 pounds :^:

07-03-2004, 05:26 PM
I'll go for 5! I'd love to weigh 143. I regained a few in Panama -- should have been 10 -- I ate so much!!! Spent two days at an all-inclusive resort -- drinks included. Don't even ask :lol:

07-06-2004, 02:26 AM
A wimpy 2 for me too...but 2 would be an actual whopping success, for this slow loser...!


07-06-2004, 08:35 AM
My vacation to Vegas really messed me up last month. I am currently 167 and am looking to go back down to 160 in July. So mark me down for 7 lbs.

07-06-2004, 09:02 AM

07-08-2004, 12:05 PM
HI! I would like to post my goal for July ! I am on phase 2 now...I lost 12lbs. on phase one but seem to be stuck...I plan on exercising more so my goal for July is 5lbs.
