Default 2.5 lbs a week until Halloween Challenge

16 weeks and 6 days till Halloween, my favorite Day of the Year. So, needing serious motivation by way of a challenge I can look forward to the finish line in, I've decided to start a Halloween challenge.

This is just one of those simple challenges, the goal is 2.5 lbs a week, so the people closer to goal probably won't be too interested. At the end, if you've lost weight, you're a winner. I'm not big on setting up complex rules or policing anything, I just want people with the same goal (about 40 lbs by the end of October), who are supportive.

I want to hit 200 and be possible doing a onderland dance on Halloween in a costume that I bought off the rack instead of something I have to make myself because nothing fits.

So, anybody interested, start posting!

Alright, here is the link to the online spreadsheet that challenger Mya created and posted for our weigh ins. Just click the link and enter your weight for the weekly weigh ins! Thank you Mya!!

after entering your weigh in, just click the save button on the top right side of the page.

2.5 lbs/week is a lot for me, it will probably have me burning more calories everyday. That's not bad at all, I'm in!
If I lose 40 lbs by then I will be one happy, dancing, sexy witch. Let's get to work.

I'm in! I would love to be down 40 pounds by the end of October. I not only want to dress up for Halloween, but I am also planning a girls only weekend at the end of October & would love to buy some sexy jeans!

YAY!! So happy other people want to try this! There are still 5 days left before the 1st week of the challenge so we should all use our weight in five days to start. Or we can just start today and have five days at the end of the challenge to work with. Whateves...really, don't like rules and stuff

I can use my weight now or in 5 days. Doesn't matter to me. Just let me know what works best for you all.

Wow! This is just what I needed! I'd love to be that much lighter by Halloween. I'm going to start first thing in the morning to get a heads up! Thanks for the motivation.

WOOT! Love the enthusiasm! Lets just weigh in and start tomorrow and then have five days at the end, that way, no more procratinating (its the last thing we need). So, first thing tomorrow weigh in and post your SW and set your GW based on 2.5 lbs lost a week. WOOOHOOO! Okay, I'm a little overexcited, need to calm down.

I'm in! I'd LOVE to be in Onederland by Halloween.
SW: 233
GW: 2.5 lbs per week will put me at 193, but I'm shooting for 199. As long as I'm below 200, I'm okay!

Ohhhh....my....
I just weighed...probably for the first time in months. I thought I was around 240ish, noooo.
I weighed in at 255. This is the HEAVIEST I have ever been in my LIFE and I am NOT HAPPY. I'm ready to cry.

So
SW: 255
GW: 210
It would be unhealthy to try for a 55 lbs loss in only 16 weeks, but a girl can wish.

I guess I should say, heaviest I've ever been without a 9 lbs baby in me and lots of fluid and goo. I was 260 my last week of being pregnant with my son. I was huge. I can't believe I'm that huge again (without the big belly, although, my belly is pretty big now).
