Default ***holiday Challenge***

Join me this year in giving yourself a real Christmas gift-- the gift of reaching a weight loss GOAL. Let's challenge ourselves to keep each other accountable through the holiday season so that we can fit into smaller holiday sweaters in time for this December!

Here's how it works:

Anyone is welcome to join at any point in the challenge. Latecomers are welcome!

To join, enter your info into the spreadsheet I set up here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...nc&usp=sharing

This will help us keep track of our progress and gauge how far we have to go.

Every Friday, enter your weekly weigh-in weight under the column for that week.

Be sure to pick a realistic goal-- it doesn't have to be your big end goal, but just something that you think you can reasonably reach in 11 weeks.

I'm really looking forward to starting this challenge-- I've done these before and they have really helped. We can do it!!

I'm in! My halloween challenge is ending soon, so this will be good for me. BTW, I don't know if this is just on my end, but you have to take out the "[url] on the front of your link in order for us to be able to click on it and see your google doc...

I'll try adding my name later. I think my computer must be forbidding me to add my name to the spreadsheet cause I'm at work? I'll try when I get home tonight.

Yes, I'm in. I'm really, really hoping to hit my goal by the end of the year but the pounds are coming off superbly slow.

Thanks for setting this up.

I'm in too. The fall challenge I am in is ending soon and can dedicate myself to this. I'd love to be in onderland but I thought 16 lbs is more realistic with the holiday season coming up.

Hey all! I love these challenges, I do everyone I can I checked my Halloween challenge 11 week weight loss and it was 13 lbs, so with Thanksgiving in there I'm going to aim for a little less because I love stuffing, and there is nothing that will stop me from eating it plus I might need a little time to recover. So for an odd weight loss goal (and because I want to see the 140s by Christmas) I want to lose 11.5 lbs and hit 149.7

Changergirl -- I feel your pain! I've been moving super slowly too. I would love to hit my goal by the end of the year too!! Maybe we'll make it!

CleanCowGirl, Smith1313 and Turtle-- Welcome! So glad you guys have joined

I feel like this challenge is going to be a little more difficult than normal because of the holidays - I'm already having issues resisting the bags of halloween candy that my piggy boyfriend brings into the apartment - but having other people there doing it with you sure does make it easier. Looking forward to doing this with you guys!

I just joined. I can't wait for Christmas, since I live away from home it will be the first time my family will have seen me since I started eating healthier. I am hoping to be down to 155 (about 15 lbs)
