Wow. Robin, I'd love to join your challenge, but do you honestly think you can lose 25 pounds in a month? That's more than 5 pounds a week. Not an easy goal you are setting for yourself. I don't want to discourage you, if you really think you can do it, but for me, that would defeat me before I even started.

10 pounds is the most I could aim for without feeling defeated before I began. Even that seems a bit high, but I think it could be done. So I'll join you for 10 pounds. Start weight this morning (after a few days of carbing up) is 252.5

I will join you. My goal loss for January is 2 lbs. Todays weight is 143. I'm really psyched to have a brand new year. I want to get back to 140. If I find a measuring tape, I'll measure and post. I am writing all my food down again and my exercise.

I'll join ya robin- - and even shoot for that 25! I still haven't experienced what I remember as that "big Atkins weight drop" that I remember -I'm blaming menopause- but with my exercise committment, I'm thinking I could drop 25lbs at this weight combined with staying OP. (I'd really love to shoot for 26 so I could be @ 199 - but will have to see how it goes - and hopefully GOES - here in January Challenge Land! )

25lbs for the first month is very do-able for me. My first week on induction usually pulls an average of 10lbs off, the second week just under 10....so that leaves approx 5lbs for the last 2 weeks. Very do-able if I keep to my plan and keep up with my exercise. Mind you...for the 2nd month its out of the question.

Aud~ Yah!! I think you can do it! If you keep to it for 31 days....no problem!

Ok, here goes! my New Years Challenge was a bust. I think there was just to much going on. (my husband left on an extended trip, I started a new job, the holidays....) I know these are just excuses and if I want to keep weight off, I'm going to have to learn how to deal with things!
For now, January is a good month to make a new start. not to mention that Ihave tohave my cholesterol and sugar checked again in 3 weeks, and since I didnt' take the meds, I'm hoping I was able to get those numbers a bit in control with just diet. I'm hoping to show those Dr.'s a thing or two
SO....

GOAL 10 lbs

1/1/07

weight ~ 156

waist ~ 37
hips ~ 39
arm ~ 11.25
thigh ~ 18.50
bust ~ 44

Ok girls let's do this! Now, off to change my ticker!

Hmmm, January challenge - hmmm 31 days. WE CAN DO THIS! Great idea for a thread! Maybe we should do this every month!

I will lose 10 lbs this month. I know, some are aiming higher, but I'm not doing induction.

WE CAN ALL DO THIS!

I'll do it through diet, exercise and planning. I know I can do it, I know we all can. I know if any of us fall short - at least we fell in a better place than we started!

GOOD LUCK!

Hi all. After 2 years of horrible eating, I gained 100lbs. Back to low carbs. This January challenge seems perfect.
