Default 2009 Springtime Challenge

Hello - Anyone interested in joining me in a springtime challenge. March 20th is the first day of spring and I really want to look better in my capri's and other spring and summer clothes. As a matter of fact Spring is my favorite time of the year so why not try to feel my best . I will set my goal at 20lbs. because I believe I can do it! Today is Friday Feb 13th(not gonna let that scare me)

O.K. thats 35 days until SPRINGPlease set your goal be based on what you think you can do and how many days you have to get-r done. I hope everyone will check in at least once a week as I believe the more you check in the more FOCUSED you are

I'm in!

This time around, I'm trying to be realistic... I'd like to see anything below 170 by March 20!

Current weight: 179.4
Goal weight: 170 by March 20

This means I've got to keep up a steady 2 pound loss per week. Doable? I think so!

Capris in spring, shorts in summer, here I come!

No loss since last Thursday but that's ok. Still lost 7 pounds in my first week and slipped a little over the weekend. Had a lovely walk with my little one this morning. We don't move real quick but I compensated by having a messenger bag and a very full lunch bag (whole fruit weighs a lot!!)
How's everyone else doing??

hi...i'd love to join too. my goal is to be at 150 by march 21st. wow, that would be awesome! i'm feeling ambitious though, i've changed up my gym routine and i've already lost 4 pounds in the last 10 days. so to lose 10 more in a month seems doable (at this point).

good luck to everyone!
