100 lb. Club - Jessica's "No-More-Fat-Aunt" Challenge

With all the pheromones in the air, we have a lot of budding bellies and I have no intention of catching this wave of mommies-to-be. However, it looks like my sister decided to catch it. Yes, my sweet baby sister is pregnant. We don't have a due date yet but I'm guessing September. I've decided I'm going to fly home when the babe is born and this horrible thought got stuck in my head - I'm going to be a fat aunt?

Since there are so many preggers on the board, I realized, we're all surrogate aunts! And I'm kicking your butts in gear! We have to be a good example for all the new babies-to-be on the board. We need to be healthy, happy aunts.

So, here's the deal. We set a goal weight for each pregnancy on the board. I think there are 3 - but hey, if more come up, there's always room! :) Whenever any respective mom has the baby, we'll post who came closest to goal on the day of delivery!

Moms-to-Be, I'm charging you with frequent posts to encourage our players. I can just hear it now, "hmmm.. my family has a history of delivering early, keep that in mind this weekend!"

June (MaBear)
July (Inca's Mom)
September (Tolose85)

I hope this sounds like fun! :lol:

My goal weights:

June - 230
July - 220
September - 200

I want to be in onederland when AmanDUH (my little sister) delivers.

03-01-2005, 02:52 PM
Sounds like a plan to me! I weigh in tomorrow, and I'll post my goal weights then. I had a horrible gain in February with stress eating around moving. Gets me every time. But I'm back on track and ready for this. And except for moving from this apartment to the house we just put on offer on, I'm not planning any moves for a long, long time.

03-01-2005, 03:22 PM
Ok, my goals:
June: 205
September: 182

03-01-2005, 03:55 PM
I'm going to hold you all to it!!!

03-01-2005, 08:24 PM
Sounds like a cool plan.
Here are mine:
September--200 (shoot if I'm going to aim that low I might as well say) 199

Current: 269

June: 250

July 240

August: 230

June 175
July 165
September 155

Phew. If I make those, I will be thrilled! Good luck to everyone!

03-03-2005, 09:02 AM

OK guys I don't know how I missed this thread but I just finally popped in. Good thing all you aunts (and uncles) are getting it together, because little Bryson Eric Evan Ian Jonathan Patrick Ryan Marte needs all his "relatives" in tip-top shape to help keep mom-to-be sane. :dizzy: Personally I would like to be no more than 310 in June or July :) I'll wait and set my September goal after he decides to vacate my body.

03-03-2005, 10:00 AM
I am seriously worried about the water around here. I am fine, still without child, but my little sister in Australia is also pregnant and also due in September!!!!!

I'm focussing on September anyway, as I am doing a reading at a wedding, have a holiday in Greece, and am doing my first half marathon. Phew!

September Auntie Goal................onederland 199!!!!!!!!

Goddess Jessica
03-07-2005, 02:50 AM
I cannot believe your sister is pregnant too! Maybe we'll be aunts around the same time. And to think I was complaining because my sister was across the county - yours is across the globe!

Ok, i did CRAP over the weekend but eat girlscout cookies. But last week I did walk three miles 3 times! That's cool!

03-10-2005, 08:24 PM
I had my 24 week appt yesterday. I actually do go early :) . My last 5 babies arrived at 38 weeks so 14 weeks to go! I'm fine and baby is fine. I'm managing to almost maintain my weight, I've lost a bit.

:coach: Go aunts and uncles! :cheer:

Since my nephew will be 2 in May, I'll set a seperate May goal for myself ;)

May: 280 (for my beautiful Evan)

June: 270
July: 260
September: 250

That is 47 pounds in 6 months, or roughly 8lbs a month - seems VERY possible :)

03-11-2005, 05:25 PM
While I have no siblings at all to even give me rugrats to work for, I'll just borrow all of yours!

current weight: 286

June: 270
July: 264 (for Lexi, my Boxer puppy's 1st birthday!!!)
Sept: 255

03-12-2005, 11:26 AM
Dangerous water!! yikes!

June: 220
July: 215
Sept: 205

Glad to hear all the new Mommies to be are doing so well!!!

03-24-2005, 02:45 PM
Well it's been about 3 weeks since Jessica's challange... how are we all doing?

There are only 9 weeks until June 1st! ;)

I've lost 6 lbs... officially.
Unofficially I'm at 278 which would make me 8 lbs lighter!

I was 304 at the OB/GYN last week, but was at 300 this morning so I'm still hanging in there :lol:

03-24-2005, 03:57 PM
I'm still on track to keep my goals.

Goddess Jessica
03-28-2005, 12:38 PM
Hi guys!

Well, some bad news. My little sister miscarried on friday. She was upset but she was only about 10 weeks along, so she's glad it happened now and not later. She's feeling fine - a little sore and sad but otherwise good.

BUT I'm still in the No More Fat Aunt challenge! I walked a lot on vacation but ate as much as I walked! :) Kicked my butt into gear right now!

03-28-2005, 01:53 PM
Jessica, I am so sorry for your sister!

Amanda Panda
03-28-2005, 01:54 PM
I'm so sorry to hear that your sister lost her baby Jessica, that is sad for you both. You are both in my thoughts .

Love Amanda x

03-28-2005, 01:57 PM
Jessica- So sorry to hear about your sister, I hope she's doing okay. And you too of course!

I'm still on track too... started challange at 286; current this morning 274!

03-28-2005, 02:08 PM
Sorry to here that Jessica. I'm glad she is all right. That has to be a hard thing to go through.

04-12-2005, 10:00 AM
Ok guys we are getting closer to June, how are we all doing? I weighed in at 304.5 this morning so I'm still doing as well as expected! :D

04-26-2005, 01:24 PM
current weight: 286

July: 264 (for Lexi, my Boxer puppy's 1st birthday!!!)
Sept: 255

Wow... That's what my goals were on 3-11-05

Today I'm at 266...

Memorial Day goal is 260 (might as well be June I guess!!)
July 24th I'm going to Wisconsin Dells... 5 day's in a swimsuit in public :eek: I'd really like to be 240
September 29th is my birthday I'll be 28 years old... I'd really really like to be 199, have not viewed the scale in the 100's since I was 18!

So I guess this is my revision!
June: 260
End of July: 240
End of Sept: 199

04-26-2005, 01:28 PM
OMG, I loooove the Dells! Haven't been in 11 years though.

I'm sorry to hear about your sister, MsGoddess, even sorrier that I didn't see it until now. :(

I want to be

320 for Mabear
315 for Kim
290 for Gretchen
280 for Donna

Goddess Jessica
04-28-2005, 01:51 AM
SPF - Awww, thanks for the sweet sentiment.

I'm still in the race. Although a little off track.

Sara!!! Way to go chica. You are kicking butt! On your way to be a slim aunt!

Kim - You must be so cute right now. Do we get prego pics yet?

05-01-2005, 06:36 PM
So who is due when?

Inca's Momma
05-01-2005, 10:00 PM

Mabear is due June 24th
I am due July 9th
ToLose85 (Gretchen) is due Sept 1st.

Unfortunately my little piglet is growing and I'm fast approaching the 310 mark :mad: But it's all good, whatever happens is ok with me as long as he is healthy.

I would love to attach some preggie pics, but they are all too big and I don't have a program to crop them on this puter grrrrr.

Goddess Jessica
05-01-2005, 11:36 PM

If you're on a Windows machine, open them in Paint (should come standard: Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> Paint). Under Tools, there is a "Stretch/Skew" which will allow you to resize them if they're too big. I have to do this all the time at work (for pictures in our Help File) because they refuse to buy me photoshop. :P


05-02-2005, 05:14 AM
I'm still on track, meeting each monthly goal I set, so here comes one-der-land in september.

Jessica, so sorry to hear about your sister, it's a hard thing to go through - I've been there twice, now I am just happy to be an auntie.

I am sure my sister will be quite happy to have you as a surrogate auntie, I found out at the weekend that I'm going to have another little niece!! It's a girl!!!

05-02-2005, 03:20 PM
Kimberlie, you look so cute!! :) I love pregnant tummies. You look like you feel pretty good, too, and you haven't gained very much at all. Take it from someone who got pregnant weighing 145 and ended up well over 200 lbs. at delivery. That was 26 years ago, and I've never gotten rid of all that "baby fat." You're in a much better position when you choose to watch how much you gain. I'm proud of you!

Goddess Jessica
05-02-2005, 05:33 PM
Kim! you look sooo good! I love that outfit too.

Kykaree - Thanks for the kind words. She's doing very well. It's always nice to know there is someone else out there that experienced the same thing. Makes people feel less alone. Congrats on the loss! Wow!

05-02-2005, 08:44 PM
Jessica, I'm so sorry to hear about your sister. I'm glad she is doing well. My heart goes out to her.

Kim, you look beautiful!!!

For anyone a little off track, I thought I would add my EDD. I'm not due until the end of November, so you have time to get back on track!! HTH!

Inca's Momma
05-02-2005, 09:13 PM
Oops sorry Donna I forgot to add you to our challenge. :o

05-03-2005, 12:18 AM
Kim, you look adorable!!! :) :bb:

05-31-2005, 04:11 PM
How we all doing!? May is done... I made it.

Goal 260
Current weight 255

next goal 240 by July 24th!

I know I can do it!!!

05-31-2005, 05:26 PM
Congratulations Sara!! Well done! :)

06-01-2005, 02:21 PM
Kim you have such a cute belly. Thanks for sharing your pic.

GJ--I'm so sorry to hear about your sis. I can't imagine the loss she has experienced but y'all are definitely in my thoughts and prayers.

Can I revamp my projected weights since I went off on a tangent?

255 for Mabear
250 for Kim
235 for Gretchen
225 for Donna

06-01-2005, 02:51 PM
I'm at 288 my goal for june was 285 so as long as I make sometime in June I'm fine with that. Plus no babys yet so I still have some time.

Amanda Panda
06-01-2005, 02:55 PM
That's a great idea Dawnyal - there is no point continuing to strive for a now unattainable goal as it's just disheartening.

I've had a wobbly month and now seem to have hit a bit of a plateau, so I'm also going to reset my goals. :)

Mabear - 240

Kimberlie - 235

Gretchen - 220

Donna - 205

Love Amanda x

06-01-2005, 03:05 PM
I needed to update to add Donna. Also update to be at goal at the first of these months. So my weight was off by about 3 lbs.

November -- 244

Goddess Jessica
06-26-2005, 10:12 AM
Okay Girls (and Guy!)!

MaBear had her baby and we're seeing our first of our no more Fat-Aunt results. How we doing out there?

My Goal for Mabear was 230 and I'm still 268! Well, I'm not giving up. I've added walking in my plan and I walk to and from work 3 days a week. Now, I just have to figure out this food mess!

Post your results! Who's a thin aunt?

Inca's Momma
06-26-2005, 11:26 AM
Ok not a "thin aunt", but my goal was to not be more than 310 when mabear had her girl and I weighed in at 313 last week. Not what I wanted but darn happy with it!

06-26-2005, 12:33 PM
Memorial Day goal is 260 (might as well be June I guess!!)
July 24th I'm going to Wisconsin Dells... 5 day's in a swimsuit in public I'd really like to be 240
September 29th is my birthday I'll be 28 years old... I'd really really like to be 199, have not viewed the scale in the 100's since I was 18!

So I guess this is my revision!
June: 260
End of July: 240
End of Sept: 199

As of June 20th I'm 247. Met and exceeded my June goal!
Congrats Mabear on your sweet little girl!

Amanda Panda
06-26-2005, 04:26 PM
Oh well done Sarah for exceeding your goal - that is great!

My (revised) goal was 240 - I am at 242 today, so didn't quite make it, but not too bad!

Love Amanda x

06-27-2005, 02:09 PM
My goal was 285 and I'm 283 so I made my first goal.

06-27-2005, 03:08 PM
Dunno how I did it after such a long plateau, but looks like I made my mabear goal. The next one will be a toughie -- what was I thinking with 165 by July?! :lol: I gave myself a month to lose 10 pounds but 2 months to lose another 10. OK, I'm :dizzy: .

But heck, let's try! :)

06-27-2005, 03:52 PM
Hmmm.. I'd like to be BACK at 148 by Dawnyls due date which could be March??

06-27-2005, 04:12 PM
My due date is Mar. 5, 2006 but I will have a scheduled c-section about 2 weeks before then. (my hospital doesn't do the v-bac and likes to have repeat c-sections scheduled about 2 weeks before delivery.

06-27-2005, 05:28 PM
Congrats to everyone who met their goal! (Amanda, you did great also...2lbs shy ain't bad!)

I'll wait on posting my goal for Dawnyal's baby. I have no idea what I'll weigh after delivery :)
