Thumbs up August Weight Loss Challenge

August is for early apples, bouquets of sharpened pencils, and setting goals! What are your weight loss goals for the coming month?

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

For fitness related goals, check out our sister thread: August Exercise Challenge

Cool challenge accepted!

I'm new to 3FC. I tried to journal but couldn't stick to it. I tried a buddy system with my sister but she has 3 little ones and no time. So I'm trying to find some support while I lose weight. I have a lot to loose (<275 lb) I'm losing to get into medical school and my wedding dress (Fall 2015). I'm applying to medical school for the 2014 entry cycle but I'm worried I wont get in because of the way I look. Im determined to lose the weight I have struggled with my entire life. I accept this challenge.

My goal for the month of August: 20lb.

I'm in again. I'd like to get into the 140's by the end of August. My weight this morning was 157.25, which I'll consider my starting weight, and my goal weight is 149.00. That will require an 8.25 lb loss, a rather odd number, but what the heck!

SW: 157.25
GW: 149.00

Goal: Lose 10 pounds

Yay! I'm so excited for this August Challenge! Thanks Joy! And welcome to all the newbies!

SW: 202
GW: 196

If I can do this, I will hit two milestones: entering Onederland and getting out of the "obese" category (my first mini-goal)!
