Talking CC St. Patricks Day Challenge

CC St. Patricks Day Challenge

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's time for a new Calorie Counters' Holiday Challenge!

Everybody did great on the VALENTINES DAY Challenge.
Some of us met our goals, some of us only got partway there,some went the wrong direction, but we all put in a great effort, learned some lessons, made new friends, and supported each other... and that's what these challenges are for. Now, we're ready to set our sights on a new challenge, new goals, and the next 4 & 1/2 weeks of this journey!

Here's how it works... Set a goal or goals that you would like to reach before St. Patricks Day , March 17th 2010 . Your goals can be anything: pounds you want to lose, a smaller clothing size or outfit you'd like to fit into, sports or fitness achievements, or just a goal of keeping food and exercise on track. Whatever gets you excited about working your plan over the next few weeks, is the right goal for this challenge. You can set as many or as few goals as you like.

All are welcome! If you're not sure what your goal will be yet, but would like to join up and find some weight loss buddies, get and give support, please jump in, and you can post a goal later, when you think of something. Our main purpose is to motivate each other to keep the food on plan, keep exercising, keep getting leaner, more fit, and healthy.



I may not be able to check in daily,Since I am a mom of 3~ But I will do my best too. HAVE A GREAT CHALLENGE EVERYONE & HAVE A FUN & SAFE ST.PATRICKS DAY WHEN THAT DAY ARRIVES!

TO EVERYONE JOINING
& GOODLUCK TO ALL JOINING

Since we have 31 Days Until St. patricks Day & that is about 4 & 1/2 weeks.I would like to lose enough to Reach My 100 pounds lost most definetly which will be to get into the 150's and a loss of 3.8 pounds! And Would love to do this by March 7th Actually for my dad~He passed away Sept 7th 2007 But His birthday was March 7th.
I would like to reach that in his memory~NO PRESSURES~LOL
I would actually like to lose a grand total of 5 pounds but not sure when I can get back to my routines. which makes my goal weigh 168.6 COME ON 5 pounds!
Staying on plan calorie wise though So hopefully that is enough for now.

I'm new, so forgive me if this is a silly question, but wouldn't it make sense to just edit the OP to be a link to the other thread? Does it matter who starts it?

Evoo~Just was starting this to keep on plan with the challenges we have been doing for months. Not sure how to edit everything. Your right Doesn't matter who starts a challenge Or how many there is. Didn't mean to have any conflict. I see no problem with keeping both of them running ~cause I do not know how to edit this~
Thats the reason I had said above
~That I am WISHING EVERYONE ON BOTH CHALLENGES MUCH SUCCESS~

Oh ok. Gotcha.

In case you want to edit in the future I think you can edit an OP the same way you edited the post above -- just click the edit button that is at the bottom of that post... I think. Now I'll have to go look at a post where I started the OP to see if the button is there.

Good Luck! We're all in this together!

I'll try to check in on both threads -- my goal is to see the 180s!

It doesn't matter to me if there's 2 or we combine them...but I'm just gonna say I'M IN! lol and my goal is to be in the 170's by 3/17/10...that's only 3lbs SO I BETTER REACH GOAL THIS TIME!!!! LoL

Another goal is to finish C25K (should be done the week before St. Patty's) but we'll see. When I'm done w/C25K, I'd like to keep running and improve my time...right now, mostly at a 12min mile, but would like to work towards 10min mile....Maybe that will be my next goal after completing C25K???

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!

I'm in again. I missed my V-day challenge goal but I weigh less than I did when I started that challenge, and that's all that matters!

I'm in for 4lbs for this challenge - I have learned my lesson on setting goals that overstretch me during this time of year. Working the hours I'm working until about mid April means I need to just be sensible and conservative, which 1lb a week seems to be!

And a couple of non-weight-loss goals - complete a 5k race (I've done a bunch before, but I haven't run in a couple of months so I need to get back into it), workout a minimum of 3x a week, and stay on track with food at least five days a week. Now - I should be able to meet at least one of those goals!
