100 lb. Club - Ready for a new challenge?
02-15-2005, 09:00 AM
As V-Day now behind us; is anyone ready for a new challenge that can take us to Easter day, March 27?
I'm setting my goal for 260. This represents a 14 pounds loss over 6 weeks..
02-15-2005, 09:04 AM
Count me in...I want to lose 12 pounds between now and Easter.
02-15-2005, 09:14 AM
I'm pledging eight pounds, and ending on Good Friday so that the Easter Bunny can visit me on Easter Sunday :)
02-15-2005, 09:19 AM
My goal is 227 by Easter, which would be a weight loss of 12 pounds.
02-15-2005, 09:23 AM
I would also like to take on this challenge ... Im short on my V-Day goal by one pound ...so now it is time to make it up! I am pledging to lose 16lbs by Easter!!!
Count me in as well. I want to be 245 Lbs. by Easter.
02-15-2005, 09:45 AM
Count me in. I'd like to be 195 by March 27, just in time for my birthday on the 31st. This will be a 7-9 pound loss, depending on whether this water weight goes away or not! :) I know that doesn't seem so ambitious, but I've slowed down to a snail's pace lately.
Good luck to all!

My first challenge--count me in! I'd really like to see the other side of 300 ASAP! I was 306 this morning, so I'll make my goal 295 by March 27. 11 pounds, here we go!
02-15-2005, 10:05 AM
March 27, I'll put myself in for 5 lbs.
02-15-2005, 10:29 AM
Alright I'm in... Put me in for 10lbs! That will put me at 270
02-15-2005, 10:47 AM
Count me in for 10lbs. That will put me at about 214
OK lets do it!!
:cheer: :cheers: Sounds Like Fun to Me and I'm Ready for a Challange!
Count me in for 10# :sunny:

I am in too....
I made my Valentines Goal of being down to 282 lbs by Valentine's day and I did it.
My new Easter goal is to be down to 272 lbs by Easter weekend. That's a 10 lbs loss.

Hi I am new. I am a friend of TheOtherJen. I would like to get in on this challenge. I need to lose some weight. I am putting myself down for 12 pounds by easter.
02-15-2005, 11:53 AM
Welcome Nickodimas, glad you could join us.
Well I am sure to reach my current goal of 317 by Feb 28th. So I will continue with my next goal of being 299 by May 1st. So by March 25th I need to have at least 12 lbs off. So my Easter goal will be 309.
02-15-2005, 10:23 PM
I'm in. I'll go for 12 too, which would make me 261. I need motivation and a challenge. :)
02-16-2005, 10:17 AM
I'm going to go for 14 lbs loss. I'm sitting it high thinking this will make me work harder. I've been away. (helping w/my 1st grandchild) I've lost 1lbs since then. I'm taking care of him and I think I have everything in order for my workouts. Now to sit down and talk with him about it. (newborns can be so so stubborn) :) Todays weight 204
02-16-2005, 11:03 AM
I'm in too! I want to lose 12 pounds by Easter. Let's go!!!
02-16-2005, 11:46 AM
I'm in! But I'm going to wait until the end of Feb to decide what my goal will be, I need to see how much I lose for the rest of the month.
02-16-2005, 12:14 PM
I have my one year anniversary goal set and I'll just work toward the same for easter--down to 245.
02-16-2005, 12:50 PM
I'm in! My goal will be to be 239 (11 pounds down) by Easter. We can do it!!!!! :grouphug:
02-16-2005, 01:03 PM
I'm in - I already had my own challenge going with myself for March 28th as that's the day I leave for Florida. My goal is to be 235 by then so I have 11 lbs. to lose! :)
03-02-2005, 02:45 PM
Since i was stuck on a plateau for a while, i would have prefer to wait until March 04 to step on the scale, but temptation was too hard.
I'm now at 269, that's a 5 pounds loss within a little more than 2 weeks. Hopefully Push ups / sit ups sessions will shake things up!
How ar you ladies and gents doing?
03-02-2005, 02:50 PM
I'm doing surprisingly well...I'm down 5 more pounds and have only 7 more to reach goal. I have really gotten better about portion control and cooking all the good healthy stuff...so I hope that makes a difference for me.
03-02-2005, 03:08 PM
I'm in. I'm going for 12 lbs.
03-02-2005, 03:32 PM
I realise I´m late but I´d love to join in too!! I´d like to loose 9lbs by 28th March! I´ve no idea if this is realistic but I´ll have a go!!
03-02-2005, 03:44 PM
I'm going to jump into the challenge too. I want to lose 7 pounds by Easter (I know that isn't a lot but I haven't lost anything yet).
03-02-2005, 03:52 PM
I'm halfway there, 5 more pounds to go. I set a small goal this time so hopefully I can actually meet one :)
03-02-2005, 09:47 PM
I've got 5 more to go and 4 weigh in's to do it. So I think I'll be right on track if not past it. My goals have been 2 lbs a week and I've been hitting 3 and 4 so I'm ahead of the game.
03-02-2005, 10:11 PM
Late as well, I'll make a goal of 7lbs (292), a little low, but I know I can do that much (hopefully more, though)
Now for the real question, whats your goal to gain on easter, lol
03-03-2005, 08:55 AM
Count me in as one of the late joiners!! I would like to be at 250 by 3/25 (Good Friday). That's my daughter's sixth birthday :) It's only about 6 pounds or so, but it would be a big thing for me to get there and stay there for more than a day or two.
03-10-2005, 11:01 AM
Guess I should have made my goal more of a stretch -- I reached it today! :)
03-10-2005, 11:09 AM
As for me, still 4 pounds to go....I should be able to make it.
03-10-2005, 11:20 AM
Good job, Jen!
03-10-2005, 12:52 PM
Good going Jen. I try to set modest goals on these things because I got tired of failing my goals. LOL So I'm hoping that tomorrow I will have made my goal also. I have 1 more lb to go. This week was not the greatest so I'm not sure if I will show a loss or not.
03-10-2005, 01:49 PM
Thanks, Howie. I always have to remind myself that, while good to keep us accountable, the challenge amounts are sometimes arbitrary. Aside from keeping on plan and exercising, we don't have total control -- our bodies kinda wanna lose when they wanna lose!
Here's hoping for a SCALE victory tomorrow! :crossed:
03-18-2005, 11:39 AM
I hit my goal today with a week to spare. I'm down 4 this week to 308. So one under my Easter goal.
03-18-2005, 11:50 AM
I'm 1 lb. away from hitting my goal with a week to spare. I'm thinking when I weigh in on Wednesday I will have hit it :) as long as this TOM doesn't screw me over too much (I want to eat everything in sight)
03-18-2005, 11:54 AM
Wow, Howie! Way to go! :cp: And you're so close to being in Twoterville. You'll have to have a big (nonfood) celebration that day.
03-18-2005, 02:08 PM
Oh Man! I am so excited just weighed in this morning and I am at 271! 1 more pound and I meet my goal. Everyone is doing so great!
03-18-2005, 02:20 PM
Yep Sheila almost there. I can't wait. Great going everyone.
03-18-2005, 02:22 PM
Look at everyone go. I'm still like 9 pounds away. Who knows I might just drop those pounds before then. Stranger things have happened and I have maintained for two weeks. I'm not going to hold my breath on this though ;)
03-18-2005, 04:04 PM
I hit my goal when I weighed yesterday...so since there is another week to go I am doing to see if I can make it an even 20lb loss since I got serious (more would be nice too)
03-22-2005, 10:36 AM
Everyone is doing SO well!! Dawnyall - maybe you'll have a great big loss this week if you've stayed the same for 2 weeks prior - I'll keep my fingers crossed!
I haven't been around and posting for a while because I've just started working again I am absoloutely SHATTERED!! I haven't worked for 18 months so I knew it would be tiring plus, I'm working in a foreign language...when I get home I am just good for nothing and go straight to bed lol!!
I stayed the same at my weekly weigh-in yesterday (not able to go to the slimming club anymore as it's during my work hours) but had a decent loss last week of 6.3lbs (by my scales) but only 3lbs at slimming...needless to say, I'm going with MY scales from now on lol!![/COLOR]
