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: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/chic...challenge.html
My goal story: Fifty and feeling fabulous!

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.

Thanks Joy I'll be back on the first to weigh in, I have an idea, but will wait and see what the scale says.
Happy New Year!

Thanks to Diana and GardenerJoy for threads that keep me going month after month!

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.

SW: 240
GW: 165

January goal 10 lbs down to 230!

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.
