I'm in - just have to figure what my goal will be


Ok - going for 8 lbs - I did really well in the last challenge so historically that means the next few weeks will be slower than slow ... Want to try to make it realistic ... Although I will admit I would be thrilled beyond belief if I could get into onederland!

I didn't post in the Memorial Day Challenge, but I started Atkins 30 April. At that point I was 212 lbs. Possibly more, but I'm not sure. I didn't really get a good weigh-in until like a week and a half into it. And I was 201 on Thursday, so I lost over 10 lbs. I think this month will be more of a challenge. I'm going on a mini vacation next weekend, and then I have a 2 week trip to GA for a class for work. So we'll see, but I'm trying for 10 lbs. I'll weigh in tomorrow though, and go from there.

Yay, you found it!

I'm going to say 6 pounds. I'll weigh myself tomorrow morning and will update my (currently untruthful) ticker.

I'm in for the 4th of July challenge. I figured I would just post here with my final number ending the Memorial Day challenge: 211.8 so up 4 pounds. I think it's TOM though and I think it was Steph who said her stomach looked huge from the bloating which I can relate to. I looked at pictures my sister took last Tuesday on my son's birthday and my stomach looked huge! About as big as it did before I started back on Atkins (or at least thats what it seemed to me haha). My goal for the 4th is to get below 200 and actually stay. Mini goal is to permanently be below 210, hopefully in the next month by the time summer session starts which is June 25th. I also want to get back on track with exercising. I think I'm going try taking my son for walks with me since he really dug the hike we went on

My goals are to improve water intake, improve veggie intake and try new veggies, and make it to 190 lbs by July 4th.

I'm in for this challenge.. I will be at my goal weight by July 4th if no sooner so after myweight on Saturday I'll have an idea of what my goal will be. Just came off TOM and I know my body I need to wait at least 3/4 days after TOM to get an accurate weight..

air it is definitely TOM and if I were you I would weigh again like 3 days after TOM and for sure the scale should have moved down..

Everyone take your measurements.. I was basically going by the scale as my measure of success but when I tried on a pair of jeans that were too tight and barely could button months ago and now they are hanging off my hips I was so being the scaleoholic that I am it made me realize that don't also use the scale as the only measurement of success and also I'm not going to weigh myself everyday or every other day but try maybe 2 times a week I'm going to try

S/C/G: Going from chubby to not

Good Morning! Thank you Ana for opening the new thread.

I'm in for a minimum of 5.

I have to focus more on the exercise than the eating. As soon as I picked up the exercising the pounds started moving again for me.

We got this!

I'm in! I want to lose 5 lbs, I just have to figure out what I weigh right now (I'm hoping for 155).

150 would be my all time low! I thought I was down to 140 at one point, but my 12 dollar scale wasn't accurate. :P Should've expected as much. Then I gained a good 15 lbs from poor eating. <_<

It's good to see everyone so motivated and ready to go

I maybe close to my goal but believe me I still will be in the forums etc.. this forum as been a critical part of me losing weight. My weight didn't come off overnight and it took a lot of determination on my part. Now that I look back I'm glad it came off steady.. losing weight is the first part, maintaining it is the hard part..

Good luck to everyone and we can do this

I'm in!

My weight goal is to get to 215. I'm 227 today.

I'd like to TRY to not be so in love with coffee. Our love/hate relationship is getting ridiculous! ;-)
