Default May Weight Loss Challenge

It's almost May, the weather is warming, and believe it or not swimsuit season will soon be upon us! So let's get ourselves focused and get slimmer for summer by setting some great weight loss goals for the month of May.

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 May 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 post some goals, and prepare to get started on Sunday! Good luck to all our challengers this month!

I am totally up for this!!! I had been dieting/exercising on my own since Jan. and finally decided it just wasn't enough, that I needed more support so I joined just a couple of days ago So hopefully I can (re)jump start my weight loss! Not really sure what I should set as far as goals though? I have been strength training so I haven't seen much change weight wise (yet) unfortunatly.

Hi Trish - welcome to 3FC! This forum is an excellent place to find support of all kinds.

As far as a goal goes, you can take a look at our April Weight Loss Challenge thread for some ideas: April Weight Loss Challenge The goals that posters set are anything from committing to staying on a particular eating plan, to tracking food intake daily, to a particular weight goal, to a specific number of pounds lost. Any weight loss related goal is appropriate.

There's also a May Exercise Challenge thread in which you can post any exercise related goals. We'd love to have you join us there as well!

I'll join! I've slacked during the month of April losing just a little over 5 lbs. For May, I'd like to lose at least 10lbs. Summer break is fast approaching and I'll be spending my summer back at home. I hope I can keep up the progress I've had so far, and avoid those nagging temptations! They seem to get the best of me. I'd also like to maintain some sort of physical activity or exercise every week 5-6 times a week.

I'll make that more specific:

1. Lose 12 pounds in May.
2. Stick to the SB diet plan.
3. Exercise every day: 30 min. strength/core, 30 min. cardio.
4. Record everything I eat.
5. Count calories.

I fell short last month and only lost 5 lbs, but I know that it was due to lack of effort and time, so I'm going to try kicking myself back into gear for May! That being said, I'm sticking with my 10 lb goal for this month, as well. We'll see how it goes!

I would love to join in!

Like many, I've been down this path many times before - losing, gaining, losing, gaining some more. Last time (in January), I knew I wasn't really committed, but felt like I had to make that yearly New Year's try. Of course, I did not succeed.

Now, I am 100% in. I feel much more positive. I've joined a gym and have been working out and just feel so much better mentally and physically. So, I'm ready to kick butt (and other parts) in May. My goal will be to lose 12 lbs.

Headed over to the exercise thread to make some commitments there too. Good luck everyone!

SO UP FOR THIS! (even though my main goal is to be HEALTHY, while losing weight throughout the process...)

Hey, I'm Lacey, I'm a senior in high school, and I joined 3FC less than a week ago... Quickly before I post my goals, you may need a bit of background information so they make sense. Ever since I was young, I binged, I remember being 8 years old at a party and secretly scarfing down 8 brownies. I counted them, and the memory still stays with me today (shudder). When I entered middle school I developed bulimia, unhealthily compensating for my binging by vomiting or through severely restricting the following days (100 to 600 cals a day... oh my dumb self...) I came clean my freshman year, and began recovering. Therefore, nowadays, I don't always binge, but I overeat, and I do often binge, most of this occurring after school and on weekends. Whenever I try to eat "healthy," I undereat. That being said, my goals (and steps to goals) for May:
DO's and DONT's STEPS
1) DO drink a large glass of water EVERY time I eat ANYTHING.
2) DON'T count calories daily(It'll mess with my f'ed up head)...DO count them twice a week to make sure not eating too much or little.
3) DON'T eat as soon as you get home...DO wait a while, do some homework, if truly hungry then eat ONE HEALTHY snack.


MY # GOALS
133 End of April
129 (BREAK THE PLATEAU!)
125}***not sure when...wait till end of May***
120}***

115}***

(all goals have been approved with the help of a BMI calculator)

Good luck and stay strong!

BTW I'm sorry this is so long I promise it was only for my introduction.
