Awesome. Hey Ladies (and gentlemen?)! This is my 4th challenge; number 3 didn't go so well and now I'm ready to make up for lost time. I do WW on my own (had to quit meetings due to financial restrictions) and workout at the YMCA. I just moved to Nashville from Atlanta this summer and I'm still getting to know my new city. I look forward to some new faces, and of course the return of our veterans!

This is also good for anyone new to ask any questions and to get familiar with things and people before the actual challange in September

I guess I should let all the new people know that I am the leader for the Blue Team and the Fall challange will be my 4th one. I lost 18.8 lbs on the summer challange and anywhere from 12-20 on each of the other 3 challanges. This really keeps me focused as I have to be accountable to my team (not to say there isn't any gains in there) I just work a little harder to get the pounds off again. I do WW on my own as well just because I feel it works for me and I'm cheap

Mercy and Aclai4067 - glad to see your up for another challange. I'm not sure what I'll do once I hit goal......I may go into challange withdrawl.......lol

Hello everyone. My name is Shannon and I'm the red team leader for the fall challenge. This will be my 3rd or 4th challenge...can't remember. I lost 45lbs on my first two challenges, and then this past challenge I lost 22.5lbs. It's definitely a struggle to keep going each week but the support here is invaluable. I live and teach 3 year olds on an island in South Korea. I have a wonderful boyfriend of almost 11 months now! Life is good. I just need to stay focused...hence, I'm loving the name of our fall challenge. Make sure you sign up with your starting weight by September 12th!!

I totally thought today was Sunday so I came to weigh in and saw my post was gone in the W/I thread. Argh. Sorry folks, just a lot going on.

I'm hoping to be feeling better for the next challenge!

If I stay within the 5lb mark once I hit goal I will be a very happy camper

So, I went ahead and signed up in the thread and put my current weight as the starting weight, but it's almost 2 weeks away! I would like to lose a couple between now and then. So, prior to the 12th, can I adjust my starting weight if it has dropped?

Oh, and I'm Jennie. I have been floating around these boards on and off for well I guess a few years now. I am done having kids and my youngest just turned 3, and well, I don't have any more excuses for being heavy! It is time for this weight to come off! I look forward to getting and giving some daily encouragement so that together we can succeed!

Edit: OH My! I've been here for 6.5 yrs! lol

Jennie- You can adjust your weight if you want to. Some people do, and some choose not too and just end up having a higher loss to show for the first week of every challenge. You can pick yourself which route you want to go. Good luck with the challenge when it starts!

Thanks Shan. I can't quite believe that but thrilled just the same. I don't think I have ever won a challenge before. This thread has been very helpful so I am extremely grateful for the encouragement along the way and truly appreciate everyone here.

You rock, girl! Great job!

I am on like day 4 of some weird virus that give you sinus infection symptoms. Ugh. I am so depressed about not being able to exercise. I tried once, but I can't breathe and I start to get dizzy. Not fun. So, I am consoling myself by saying that at least housework burns some calories. I loooooooathe housework, but it needs to be done. My poor DH, yesterday was his B-day, and with me being sick he got absolutely nothing done for him. So, I told him that I want a do-over and I am having the kids make cards for him today and I am making some brownie bites (he hates cake, but loves brownies) cause I figure even I can have 1 or 2 little brownie bites. Plus, I think the little tray only makes like 8. So, there won't be any overeating for any of us. I started a wee blog on here a couple days ago, and I am excited about writing down my progress somewhere in internet-land, even if I am the only one who reads it.

Hey everyone sorry I've been MIA the last couple days. I bought a new toy the iphone4 and am playing with it and still deciding if I should actually keep it or not.....don't really need it just always wanted one.

THERAPET - Congratulations on winning the BL title that's awesome great job.

Mercy03 - Hello

babygrant - are you feeling any better yet?

Aclai4067 - thanks for putting up the other threads keep on using them if they work for you.

Jennie527 - like shan said up to you what you want to do as far as WI I always try to have it close to my real weight as otherwise I feel I am cheating myself at the end of the challange for what I actually lost for the 13 weeks. But it is up to everyone individually the nice loss at the start is a great feeling. Whatever you decide welcome to the challange. Hope your feeling better soon.

shan - how is being back in SK and how is work going so far?

Well not much new with me I am not sure if I will have any type of loss this week I have been hungry all week so have been eating over my points everyday so far I need to lose 6lbs by October to make my RTG (meetings for work) goal.

Well have a great night everyone Hello to you all and sorry if I missed anyone.
