Talking April Weight Loss Challenge

Happy Spring everyone! The weather is improving and it's time to make some new goals and challenge ourselves to keep moving forward in the process of weightloss.

The rules of this thread are simple. We are here to provide each other some accountability along the path to weight loss. So, you just set your weight loss related goal(s) and it gets added to a goal list. When you reach your goal, it gets turned Red.
We have a sister thread for exercise related goals: April Exercise Challenge. All exercise related goals can be posted there. We love to hear about your success, as well as your challenges throughout the month. We're here to support and encourage each other to be our best. So, let's get started!

I am definitely in! I will post my goal on April 1 after my final weigh-in from March.

MsP - If I've met the 3-month criteria, please let me know if you need any help with the challenge thread this month.

Yeah, I loved the MArch thread to help me stay accountable! My goals for April are going to be much smaller, as it's the month I move home to the UK. So the first 12 days in Thailand I've got leaving parties/meals to attend and all the upheaval of moving and a couple of nights in a hotel, air travel etc. Then when I get home, I've got all the foods I've not had so long, and Easter and all the rest of it, arrrgh! I'm going to be out all the time catching up with people and none of this relates well to weight loss!

So my challenges are:

1) Lose 4lb in the month
2) When back in the UK start tracking my calories/meal planning/making healthy choices ready for really giving it another push in May.
3) Check my water intake when in cold England is still high enough!
__________________
2013 is going to be MY YEAR! Focusing on good food choices and exercise, the rest will follow!

Taking a break from the scale, but BACK WITH A BANG! When I'm back in the UK in April 2013 I hope to be lower than 168, which is from July 2012ish and the lowest I got before some regaining. Until then, it's all about good food and exercise and no obsessing over numbers!

I've been enjoying these challenge threads, so you can definitely count me in again.

My April goals:

2. Continue drinking my water daily.
