Default Road to summer Memorial Day Challenge!

Today marks exactly 19 weeks until Memorial weekend - at the start of summer! I know I can't wait!

Feel free to join right in! Your goals can be anything - weight related, size, exercise - whatever!

I'm starting at about 260lbs size 2x/18, and over the next five months, want to lose 40 lbs, and/or be a size 14, whichever is smaller

I want this to be the best summer ever!

Hi Bunny -

Ah the beach! Just thinking about it makes me tingle! Sounds like a good goal - bathing suit shopping will get me working out! Good luck!

I would love to join! Have my pom poms ready to cheer everyone on and keep myself in check.

I started the year off at 172, am currently down to about 165.5. By Memorial Day I want to have reached 140-145 and be ready for my June 5K with my aunt.
I want to look forward to swimsuit shopping this year!

I'd love to join!

I'm not going to try for a weight goal since that never seems to work for me. I am going to move 360 miles.

Good luck to everyone!

hi c laura, welcome!

Moving 360 miles - is that walking, running, or something else?

Sounds like a great goal Good luck!

c laura - doing couch to 5k, or your own thing? I was thinking about transitioning to walk/run again...

welcome monster! congrats on your previous loss- you're already accomplished so much, and way to not give up we're right here for you

So I ate dinner, workouts done for the day, now time to relax and get ready for work. I'm going to bring some good snacks so I don't overeat or get too hungry for the morning. Hopefully it will be a quiet night!

I know I'm jumping in a few days late but I would love to join this challenge. My ideal goal for Memorial Day would be to weigh 130lbs. My starting weight as of today is 142.2. This puts me past my original ultimate goal, but I feel like 130lbs may be the perfect weight for me.

How often are we reporting our results??

Hopeful - never too late! Welcome! And congrats on your loss so far

I weigh in weekly, on Sunday - you can do the same, or daily, or whatever suits you! Some don't have weight-related goals, so we're just winging it
