Any of you looking forward to the 4th of July? I'm looking forward to playing with the fireworks a bit (safely somehow, of course.)

amandie - no official forth of july up here, for us but lots of other fun activities!

I am planning to use this challenge to keep myself in check through all of the fun summer activities.

Help! I've written my name over the top of someone else by mistake in the spreadsheet and it saved and I don't know who it was.

Really sorry! Got a new computer and it's windows 8 and internet explorer 10 and between all those changes I can barely find Google let alone cut and paste - or enter things into spreadsheets properly.

Amandie can you help? Everyone else can you re-enter your details if it was you I deleted?

Stimkovs- Gotcha! I forgot that not every country celebrates 4th of July, oops!!! I totally need this challenge, the last 2 summers I've always slowly fell away from 3FC and came back with a few lbs on me and I want to not to do that this summer into the fall! It also helps that since I started this thread, I will not disappear from my own thread as opposed to if someone else was starting it, ya know? lol.

No problem, Darcey. I think maybe I'll do the same, wait until my official Thursday weigh-in!

Wow, amandie! You got this challenge up quick. I guess you mean business. All right, let's do this!

I'd really like to be under 300 by my birthday (halloween). It's a lot of weight to lose by then, but like the saying goes shoot for the moon...land among the stars. I'll give it my all!

I'm in. I'm in. I'm in.

So looking forward to this and with a nice amount of time, it feels like my 'forever stalls and plateaus' may actually be withstandable since I have more than a couple weeks

Gosh I would love to be in the 120s

I'm definitely in!!! I'll just wait until tomorrow's final weigh-in for the 4th of July challenge before I add my name/start weight. I'm really hoping to be at goal by the end of this challenge!!!

Agreed! This longer timescale stuff really worked for me last time I dieted (!). Trying to see a difference one week at a time just doesn't happen for me - I really need to take monthly chunks to see a proper difference. And here I get a few monthly chunks to go at.

Just think how happy we're all going to be at the end of this one!

Thanks for correcting my stuff ups Amandie!! I won't be able to weigh in for the first couple of weeks as i'm on hol, but after that it's game on.

Hi Everyone! I'm super excited to be starting this challenge. I made goal with the last challenge Amandie made that ends on the fourth of July, so I have faith that this system will work for me again, and since we have a longer time-frame this time, I think we will all be able to get a lot accomplished . During the last challenge, I made it to a decade I hadn't seen since 8th grade-- the 140's. During this challenge, I want to make it to a decade I don't remember ever seeing-- the 130's! Since I've never been there, I'm not sure how hard it will be or what I'll look like, but I'm excited to try!!

Good luck everyone!

Late summer/ early fall are when all of my big anniversaries are (Birthday, anniversary, Boyfriend's birthday, best friend's birthday, Girl's vacation, etc.) So I am definitely in!

Also, Halloween is my favorite holiday

Anyone have fun costume ideas?

I've been MIA, and in the meantime I've gotten to the heaviest I've been. I always lose motivation in these challenges as more and more people fall away from them, and then I quit myself. But you can't succeed if you don't keep trying, ha! So I'll do this one and the other one that spans the same length of time, and hope between the two of them I get it done!
