OK I'm going to shoot for 155.
Just thinking about that sounds great! Yippee! I can't wait! I'm a bit nervous because I have only been setting small weekly goals. But I'll give it a shot!
And we're off!!!

While I was hoping to reach my goal by July 4th since we will be on our way to D.C. I think I might be a bit more realistic with 150 - 155. If I hit my actual goal of 145, even better.

I have said all along that the Smithsonian is my reward for all the hard work. I still plan on that being so!

Well I had goals for 199 by the 7th of July, but my weight loss has slowed and I've been slacking too much to hope to make that, so I think I'm going to get a little more realistic, while at the same time pushing myself TOWARD a goal. I think maybe 223. That's about 20 pounds from now, and probably isn't realistic either, but is a lot more doable than 44 pounds. (My weight is settled right now at about 243).

Even 232 I could be satisfied with. I've been to both of these places before in the not too distant past. I felt better that much smaller, some of my clothes fit at that weight, so if I can get there I'll be content for awhile. Once I start getting into new areas I'm not going to be as confident that it CAN come off. This next 20 pounds can, and will, that I know. Now I just have to make it happen.

Default I'm new

Reading over this thread has got me a bit excited. I think I'll join the challange.

My highest weight was 297 a few years ago. I've been walking around at 274. My lowest last year was 259 and 262 back to 259 to 262 to 259 to 262, and finally I gave up and gained to 274.

So, I think I'll aim for 255. That way I can get as far away from the 260s as possible. So, if I gain, I'll still be out of the 260s.

I'll be happy right now to lose 19 lbs. (Heck, even 10 lbs. would be great.) Then I'll stop dieting again for awhile.

I love food too much. I don't like depriving myself of anything. When I limit myself, I just feel so deprived.

My reward? Hummm......I don't know........either a day trip to Atlantic City, or get my hair done, or a piece of jewelry.

So, let's do it.

What? No dancing pork chop emoticon?

I'm up for this challenge. I want to be at goal by July 4th. That's 5 more lbs. for me to get to 145. I know 5 lbs. doesn't sound like much, but weight is coming off very slow here at the end . Back to treadmill starting tonite, I have renewed strength that I can reach goal.

that's a month and a half....I want to be at my goal of 150 on the fourth of July too. I think this will be my most important goal to date as I am REALLY wanting to prove to myself that I'm self disciplined enough to eat healthy foods and not use every excuse to eat junk.

I KNOW that I can do this. I WILL do this.

Good luck to everyone, I have no doubt that each of us can reach these goals if we push each other along



my reward: not sure yet...will talk it over with dh

Hi, I am still relatively new to 3fc. I am on another 21 day challenege which is helping me make sure I excercise everyday. So the next thing is working on eating. For this challenge I don't want to concentrate on weight. I want to try and stay in induction from now until the 4th of July.

My Goal is to lose 10 lbs which would be me into the 340s.

Here we go.....

Wink I'm in too!

I'm to sure what a realistic goal would be but I will throw a number out there. I weighed in at 256.4 this morning and we have roughly a month and a half to go so maybe 235 will be my July 4th goal....

Sorry I have been so busy with school I'm not around much but I need you guys!

My goal is going to be to pick a plan and stick with it. I keep going back and forth between Atkins and counting calories. Maybe I just need to do both.

Susan: that'd be very hard on your body, girl...I wonder if anyone else has any experience regarding doing both??

How's everyone doing?!

I'm finding that if I don't eat after 3 that things go really well. I've known a ton of people who don't eat in the evenings and I think I understand why now

tomorrow's plans:

breakfast: mexican omelette
lunch: hamburger w/veggie

I have done both the begining of this year it is tough but if you go for lower fat carbs that means more veggies and less fat eating leaner meats the weight will drop off. I just do not have the dicipline with work stress right now.
