:hug: Good Morning Ladies,
The holidays are officially over and my weight is back to normal! I have been exercisng like a fiend! I am actually down a half of a pound and am quite pleased that I bounced back so quickly!
Now for the new challenge , there is 6 WI till valentines day not including todays so I propose that we lose 5% of our body weight which puts me at 8 lbs for the challenge! A self challenge I am doing is 4.5 hrs of exercise per week Which works out to two 1 hour workouts and 5 half hour workouts. I need to workout everyday because if I skip a day I end up skiping more and more till Im not doing it anymore UGGGHH!! Now I know the reality is there will be some days that working out just wont fit in and thats why I am making weekly goals instead of daily if I dont exercise one day I will have to bump it up for a few to catch up !
I believe that this will be the year I reach my goals as I am sure you will reach all of yours! Remeber there is only 5 months to bikini weather AHHHHHHH! Not that I can really wear one anyway LOL but I would like to look nice in a one piece! So are you up for it ladies ? Can we do this ? OF course we can we just need to put our bodys first ! WE CAN DO THIS!!!
So stats for starting this challenge:

SW 204
SW for this challenge 160.4
CW 160.4
GW 145

So off we go , good luck ladies and this year we will achieve all our goals!!! '
HUGGSSSSS :goodluck:

I am going to give it my best try. Can you believe that we have 5 more months before all the coats and bulky clothes come off? We are going to look good and I am excited about this summer. Cangrats hot momma keep on losing.

I'd like to join in too!

SW: 194.4
SW for challenge: 181.4
Challenge Goal: 172.4 (9 lbs)
GW: 140


I am new here and need some help to stay on plan. This challenge will give me a short term goal to focus on.

I am doing WW, but have decided to quit going to meetings, since it was getting very expensive! I am going to follow the plan on my own, with an incentive from DH - he's giving me $10 for each lb lost!

Welcome to all of you !! Nice to see so many new ppl willing to join our challenge I hope you all stick it out !The only other part of the challenge that the new ppl arent aware of is if you meet the challenge you must reward yourself with something other than food but it must also be something just for you !!! Such as a pedicure or a new sweater something you really want!!! Good luck to all of you !! WI s are Tuesdays I will start a new thread each Tuesday morning ! You can come here to get support anytime you need it and most often you will get it GOOD LUCK LADIES WE CAN DO IT !!!

Hi! I would like to take that challenge as well. I am doing WW at home and my weigh-in day is Thursday. I am currently doing yoga on most days and will return to the gym next week. Hopefully I can keep up doing yoga in the morning and working out later in the day.
I will need to loose 10.25 for the Valentines day challenge..Woo Hoo!:carrot:
Lets be strong!

I'll jump in, too! I gained about ten pounds back in the last quarter of '05, and I'm trying to set daily, long-term and short-term goals for myself. Losing 5%--12lbs--by 2/14 is a stretch, but not impossible, and it would be a tremendous motivation to keep going. Heva2015, teacherbarbie, gsmyeager, we're all in the same boat, so let's all be here for each other, okay?

I go to Curves, do yoga, pilates and cardio at home, and follow a good fats-lower-carbs eating plan. My reward will be a massage! I'm going to schedule it today.

Good luck to us all--judy

I've been trying to do this rewarding myself with stuff other than food for a while now. I need to get away from using food to reward and other emotions. I guess that goes back to being a kid when my mum would take me to McDonalds as a treat if I was good....
So, my reward is going to be a facial at this swanky salon near my house if I lose the weight in time for V-Day. I think I'll get my sister on these boards too and see if she fancies it as well...

fatgirlnomore!
01-04-2006, 12:38 PM
Since money is tight at this time of year (I tend to splurge a little tooo much on the kids at christmas) Im going to keep it simple probably a pedicure for the overworked feet LOL!!!

Hey Ladies fatgirlnomore, Yvette and all the new members yeah. Well I had a great Christmas and New Year but I went to step on the scale yesterday and it broke I really now think it has been broken for some time now cause it was crazy( the readings ). So I went and got a digital scale and man it was a wake up call. I got on yesterday for the first time I am not 177 I am 182 well either that means I gained 5 pounds over Christmas which I don't really see happening cause I watched what I ate, or the old scale was broken in the first place. So I am with you on the challenge and you are right this year is A NEW YEAR FOR ALL TO SHINE. I am really excited about this challenge and I will need to lose 10 pounds. So count me in, I am ready for a new me in 2006 !! And I ain't going back, moving forward. Well I am so excited we have lots of new people that's great Welcome ALL !! Talk to you later

Hi all,

I think my treat will be either a pedicure or massage. That will feel wonderful after all the working out.

Quick question, will we be posting our excersise daily, weekly, or just weighing in on Tuesdays? I like the idea of the weekend pep talk! I will definitely need that.

I worked out last night, doing weights for 1 hour and a half. Then, today wanted to stop for fast food, but thought about the challenge, and didn't do it! So it really does help to join these groups, to have someone to be accountable to when our willpower runs out! You go girls!

Im would love to join this challenge. I just finished watching the biggest loser family edition, and I was amazed at how they lost so much wt. after only 6 months. I weighed myself today and I'm down 3lbs :carrot: I offically weigh in on tuesday at curves, with measurements as well. I'll be working out a little harder over the next couple of days to see if I can lose atleast 3 more lbs. It's been along time since I've seen the 230's. Wish me luck. Oh!, my goal for valentine's day is 12.5lbs.( I hope to exceed that:) ) I check in tomorrow. Good luck everyone!

i'm new here too, and i think this will give me something to focus on...great idea! my husband and i are both trying to lose weight..we are just cutting calories right now. i think we might try rewarding whoever loses the most weight each week with a dvd or a video game....anybody have any other ideas for motivation? maybe i should put a bikini picture on the wall pre-pregnacy...

Hey Girls!
Glad to see so many people getting in on the challenge. I weigh in tonight at WW- so we'll see. I have been following the program to a "T" and working out. I am also taking KRAV MAGA- it is a self-defense style martial art that kicks my butt. Last night my instructor doubly kicked our butts with extra conditioning prior to practicing techniques, so that better help the cause!

Hope you all have a good day and I will let you know what the scale says later.

I'm in the challenge!!! I am so excited to have found this spot...finally REAL women on the same track and not promoting some DIET!! I haven't chosen a method yet....leaning toward a mixture of Adkins and low-fat...I know, what will I eat?? THIS YEAR IS FOR ME!!! IT HAS TO BE!! My challenge goal is 15.1 pounds! I CAN DO THIS!! Of course it doesn't help that a girl-scout rep just brought in a press release and 'sample cookies'!!! Evil woman!!! (mantra...I don't like cookies, I don't like cookies, I don't like cookies!)
Here we go!! Good luck and thanks for the accountability from outside sources...my self-discipline is in the crapper. Keep me on task ladies!!! Thanks!!

Yvette your right this year is OUR YEAR and when Dec 24 comes around next year we will be thinner then ever. Keep your head up:hug:, I was upset to see the scale hit 182 but I have focused on the big picture this year we will do it for good. Thanks fatgirlnomore, I was upset the first day, but I have done great since and I really believe this is my year. I am gonna put me first from here on out and my DH, DK can look at dishes in the sink cause mommy is working out and I think I am finally okay with that. I tested everyone on the 2nd and didn't clean the house all day and guess what NO one complained , and my DH later that night Cleaned WHAT WHAT WHAT:cp:, maybe it's a new year for us all. Well remember all -:sunny: Life is but a journey, you choose your journey !!:sunny:
Have a great weekend and See you all Tuesday for are Weigh-In.:goodscale

Yvette and Stacy WTG now lets get going on this challenge and show the new commers how its done I know you can I have all the faith in the world in you !!!!

Friday pep talk:
I know that most of us have a really hard time on the weekends myself included! I have been thinking about this since Wed morning What is so special about the weekend ??? Nothing really because if they labled Saturday Monday would that change things in our minds?? Probably so what I am trying to say is that Sat and Sunday are just two other days! maybe instead of eating more we could exercise more even if it was only fifteen minutes more its something right !!! Ladies I know we all can do this its how much we want it and I for one want to look smoking sitting by the pool this summer !!!! I wont sit till I do my exercises promise LOL Have a great non weekend HUGGGGSSSSS Cya Tuesday!!!!!

01-06-2006, 04:55 PM
This is so true FGNM! We tend to think of weekends as time to relax, and slack off a bit, when really, we should be viewing it as extra time to kick things into high gear. I'm going to try and do some high intensity weight workouts this weekend, and eat very healthy, taking time to prepare my food, instead of driving through somewhere.

THANKS FOR THE PEP TALK!!!!

Hi everyone-
Well I weighed in and lost .8 ( I almost wrote "only .8")- but I being more positive. I was frustrated when I looked at my ww booklet - but when I am honest with myself- I have to admit that I blew it out over the new years weekend. So will be better in the coming weeks. I forgot- when I hit 5 lbs total lost I am getting a massage! Have a good non-weekend.

I am currently 98kg, 5% of which is roughly 4.9kg, so my weight goal would be getting down to around 93kg? Is that right?

I have no idea and dont get me started on the lb conversion LOL

Hope every one is having a great weekend!!! I am sort of. Friday night I "fell off the wagon" and eat more than what i should have, however instead of wallowing on and on about like I have in the past I got up this morning and decided to move forward and not to beat myself up over it. For me this is a huge change since in the past I could beat myself up over a slip up and then slip up again because I was still upset. 2006 is going to be a great year!! You are right to think about the upcoming Christmas 2006 Stacey since if we make these changes now we all will be thinner and some of us will be at our goal by Dec 24, 2006.
Here is to less of all of us in 2006!!

Wow, what a great crowd of motivated wimmen! Let's make the most of the New Year's enthusiasm and give ourselves lots of momentum and support!

I'm doing well, and looking forward to Tuesday's weigh-in. I did 200 minutes of cardio last week; my goal is 250 or more, so that's not bad for the first week. The six-week challenge starts tomorrow at Curves, so I'll get even more reinforcement on both the mouth and the muscle fronts.

I would like to hear how the rest of y'all are planning to meet your goals. I laughed out loud at the grocery store yesterday--the Lean Cuisine section of the freezer looked like it had be attacked by locusts.

Hope everyone's week gets off to a great start!

I know exactly how you feel! I lost 0.8 this week too, and have had a series of 0.8 losses! It gets frustrating, but we need to remeber that it's still weight GONE! I started keeping a chart of losses, and my DH gives me a dollar for every 0.1 lost, so 0.8 is looking pretty good!

I'd love to jump in. I'm new to all this as far as fitness. I'm going to guestimate my weight being about 200.0 pounds (Was 203 on Friday, is now 198.0 today). So my 5%, is aprox. 10 pounds by Valetines day!

As far as working out, I like to walk on the treadmill, and I'm forcing myself to wake up with Denise Austin, on the weekdays! When school starts I will be able to hit a campus gym... I'll keep you guys posted!

Overall, I have a goal of about 30-60 pounds to lose before summer. Or during summer, not a race... :)

I started on Jan 2, using the 90/10 plan, and I've lost 4 pounds so far.

I'm STOKED.

To lose 5% of my body weight by Valentines, I'd need to drop 8.15 pounds. I can do that. No sweat. (Or actually, lots of sweat!) Tee hee!

is it okay if we are not weighing in on Tuesdays? I just started on Sunday, so I am not weighing in until Sunday night!!! Well no matter what, this is keeping me motivated :) BTW, BeezKnees, what is the 90/10 plan? I am hearing all these new diet plans and I'm interested in learning!

So far, so good. I'm down at least two pounds since signing on. I did 200 minutes of cardio last week, working toward 250/week (not including yoga, and only 15minutes for trips to Curves). Yesterday was Day One of the six-week challenge at Curves, so I'm getting lots of supoprt and feel very upbeat about losing another 10 pounds by 2/14.

Need motivation? Head over to the Success thread and look at the before and after pictures!

Those Christmas indulges just found their way to my hips last Wednesday :( I swear, it literally happened that quickly. I tried to eat well when I returned home from the holiday visit and thought I had beaten the curve, but alas, the cookies caught me! So, I fully accept the Valentine's day challenge. Off to a good start :carrot: last night I did that really fun striptease workout video by Carmen Electra (53 minutes), 30 minutes of toning on my new Total Gym (my christmas present my to body) and 30 minutes of Karen Voight's Pure and Simple Stretch. This morning I was sleepy so I only did 10 minute Abs on the Quick Fix total mix DVD, but I have a longer workout planned tonight if I am not too sore from last night ::: ouch :::

Starting Weight 165 pounds :o
V-Day Goal Weight 156 :)
Total End Goal Weight 130:D

Count me in, this sounds like a great idea. I am somewhat new here too. I've been drinking carrot juice before each meal, seems to be working. It gives me a healthy boost of pep!

Best of Luck!
