Default April 1st Challenge

April 2nd is significant to me because it's the Blue Jays home opener and I want to be more comfortable in those little seats than I was last season. It is also a hard climb up to the nosebleed bleachers and last year I was very out of breath. In Toronto, April is also when the lighter coats come out and the clothes get less bulky.

Does April 1st mean something to you? Join me!

April is our annual family trip to Disney on Ice we always have so much fun but each year I shell out for rink side seats because the view is great but also because the cheaper seats are smaller and my butt doesn't fit. I would also like to be able to sit in the middle of the row and not the end of the row so I know people can get past me. *sigh*

So my goal... drop 17lbs (god i hope I can do it)

SW 297
GW 280

I am hoping that setting the small goals will help me reach my bigger goal. We will see. I will check in Feb 1st

I love this! I made my long-ish term goals today and stopped at April 15th! I currently weigh 201 and aim to be 190 when I go for vacation February 22nd. I want to rock that bikini! I want to maintain while I am away, and then make it to 180 by mid April. So, I am aiming for 21 lbs by April 15th WOO!!!

Great thread! And I am from Toronto originally too and yes- those seats are tiny. I can't wait to hear about how you celebrate the home opener!

This sounds like a good motivator! Summer will be here soon and I REALLY want to have clothes to wear!
I'm going to aim big and try for 25pounds just cause I'm at the beginning of my journey and I know I can do it. I used to get discouraged if I didn't see large numbers but not anymore, so I know it won't start a binge/slide if I don't make it.

April is when I return home to the UK and want to do it in style!

As I'm not weighing at the moment, I'm making mainly NS victories, by April 1st I want to have finished the 30ds and ripped in 30 dvd's and to see a tangible difference in my before and after photos! I want to be comfortable in my bikini on my beach holiday before I come home, and when I arrive back to the UK somewhere around teh 14th, I want to weigh in at less than my old lowest weight of 168, which I know now I'm above, I'd love to be a lot below, but I'll take anything for now!

Great thread, I'll pop back in once a week or so to check in and see how everyone's getting on!

Today is day 3 of 30 DS, so a long way to go!!

Another less likely to achieve goal but I'm going to stick it in anyway, I'd love to be running 5K by then too, but not sure I can really train for that here, but I'll try!

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!

Running a 5k by my 30th birthday (October of this year) has been on my bucket list for a while. I would really love to check it off. But I have a LONG way to go.

Mmmm....not really. BUT - it's 2 months out and I have 15lbs left for my (maybe) goal and I'd really, really like to "Get'er done" so to speak. So, yeah, let's finish this by April 1!
