Smile March Weight Loss Challenge

Welcome to the weight loss challenge for March! What are your goals as we move into a change in seasons this month?

State your goal and track it throughout the month with a supportive and encouraging group. We'll compile our goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration. Woohoo!

For fitness and exercise goals in March, visit our sister thread: March Exercise Challenge

I'm in, too! My company is hosting a weight loss challenge that starts on, I believe, the 6th. Whatever team loses the most weight % wise wins some sort of prize. Frankly, I don't care about the prize too much but I think weighing in and being on a team will keep me on track.

My goal is to be firmly in the 130's, no more bouncing as I think I've bounced back up to 140 - I'm just afraid to check...

SW: ~141
GW: ~134


EDIT:
Okay, so I overestimated my starting weight and have kind of already hit my target weight...

So let's try this again!

SW: 134.8
GW: ~129

I'm in. I can't set the bar to high because I'm still breastfeeding, but I think a goal of 5lbs is very reachable.

I am in! I'm participating in a couple other challenge threads, but I don't have any actual mini-goal weight challenges yet...so, this is perfect. I also weighed in at a nice round number at 275 even this morning, so it's a good place to start for March 1st! I'm going to be optimistic, since I'm also starting a daily exercise regimen today, too...so, the goal is 10 pounds for March.

SW: 275.0
GW: 265.0

ETA: Adding a little ticker in my signature for this challenge, as well.

Although I weigh in tomorrow, I don't think I made my goal of 7lbs. I'm going to try again for that amount this month.
