Default 5 pound Challenge #230

Everyone is welcome to join!

Here's how it works:

Post your starting weight (sw) and your goal weight (gw).
Come back anytime to update with your current weight (cw).
The first person to reach their 5 pound goal is the winner!
That person then starts a new thread for the next 5 pound challenge!

Have fun and good luck!!

Cw: 340.8
Gw: 335.8

Side note: I kind of feel guilty when I win- we are all working hard- I have so much more weight to lose than most of you guys, so it's a bit easier to shed five pounds right now--- that being said- I love these challenges!!! We are all amazing and its great to know you guys are right here with me slurping on lemon beverages!!!

I am in again!

SW: 150.0 lbs
CW: 150.0 lbs
GW: 145.0 lbs

_________

PS - I made a suggestion in the previous thread that we start next challenges (not this one) based on weight percentages. Let's say 2 %. It would be easy to figure out how many pounds are needed for every challenger. Example for 150 lbs, it's 3 lbs. It would be more of a level playing field. See how competitive I am?

What do you think? Good idea or bad idea?

Matisse, My 2 cents, I like the 5lb challenge the way it is, but would probably join a 2% thread as well if someone started it. Can't have too many motivators!

Matisse... I too like the easy to post 5 lbs off.. but I would try and % off weight loss thread... (its hard to see little % for lbs off when you are a big girl like me ) But I would do it! I like math!!!

Didn't budge this morning- but no complaints!

Matisse- I'd be on board for a percentage challenge as well as this one- back before a had a baby and gained my weight back- these five pound chalkenges are one if the main reasons I lost 75 pounds the first time. 2 weight loss challenges ought to make the pounds melt off! Lol

I'm going away until Wednesday- my sister in law is having a baby And we are heading there to be with them. I'm a bit nervous because this is the first time since I started losing successfully that I will be away from my food and my schedule. I aim to make the best choices humanly possible- and have a back seat full of natural, healthy snacks for the way. Told my husband that the only rest stops we are allowed to go to are ones with at least a subway to stop at! Lol
I won't be weighing in until Wednesday morning- but hope to check in with you guys daily!

Good luck!!!!
Ps- looks like only believe will have won this by the time I get back!!! Way to go, lady!
