Smile January Weight Loss Challenge

Are you ready to start the New Year right? The monthly weight loss challenge is a great place to track your progress in January and, then, follow through with each monthly thread for the rest of the year.

State your goal for January and join a supportive and encouraging group to help you meet it. We will compile our goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

Join us at our sister thread, as well, to track your January fitness goals: January Exercise Challenge

I really am enjoying these challenges! And I love seeing the progress that everyone is making.

I've been losing at around 12 lbs a month. I'm just going to go for an even 10 this time around.

This sounds like so much fun! I definitely need support from others as right now I'm on my own with trying to lose weight amongst friends and family. I look forward to giving and receiving support on the forum. My goal for January is 10lbs as I'm just starting and I know people tend to lose more weight at the beginning of the process. Let's start this new year out right.

Today I am at 210.4 but I will do an official weigh in on Wed morning. I am aiming to see 204 by Jan 31st. I need something like this to help me keep track. I am really bad at forgetting what day I weighed in and I for get the exact number. This will be a nice record to keep.
