Default Memorial Day Challenge

Hi everyone Happy weekend to you all. Some of you expressed interest in another challenge. Memorial day is on Monday, May 29th, the kick off to summer for some us. You can join now or at any point along the way of the challenge, it is never too late to join.

Just state what it is that you would like to accomplish by memorial day, it can be a weight loss goal or a non weight loss goal such as inches lost or it can be that your just trying to start out and still having a tough day one and making it about day one, it can be about wanting to quit night time snacking or desserts or soda, or whatever you choose!

Post as often as you like, It is at those times that we can get help, there is no failure here! We are all striving to be a better us!

I look forward to meeting you all! As for me, I am currently in the spring challenge until the 20th but I decided to start here now too! With approximately 11 weeks to go (10 weeks from Monday 3/13) and the start of summer, my goal is to continue being active and exercising, stay on plan, and if a 12 lb. loss or so follows that would be great! First and foremost, I will just take it day by day and focus on that day. What are your goals? : )

Have a great weekend and remember to jump in anytime, it is never too late!

Hey,

I can get behind a Memorial Day challenge! My goal is to get to and maintain 250 or lower on the scale - a 7.4 lb loss from my weigh-in today. Hopefully that's highly achievable and I can set a stretch goal later, but it's been awhile since I set out on a diet and I would like an easy win *fingers crossed.*

Best wishes,
RRosie

I'm totally in!

My goal is to be 190-ish. I haven't decided yet if that's too ambitious or not so I might revise it later.

Totally had to google when Memorial day was Bloody Foreigner

Well I would love to of lost a good 3 inches off of my Tummy by then.

I was working on my legs in the Spring Challenge and They look pretty good to me, hopefully I will be able to check in on that challenge with a good loss. But with my first wedding of many approaching in June, I would really like to work on reducing the inches on my tummy. I see great results in all areas, except for there, so I need to start doing better workouts.

I think by then my goal is also to be 254? so that is like 18lbs or something :O wish me luck

Another out of town member here had to google the date of Memorial Day.

I'm going to aim for 15lbs more off - the week leading up to the 29th I'm away in Germany on holiday, which might make 5:2 fasting a bit of a struggle!!

Hi Weekend Boater, thank you for starting this!! I love challenges

Good luck to everyone!!

SW: 219.4
GW: 199.4

I went back and forth on what I wanted to put as my goal. 20 lbs. is a stretch, but I have been losing on average 2.5 lbs. a week, so I dropped it down to 2lbs assuming it is bound to slow down. I really wanted to be in the 190's by June 1st, but didn't realize that is approaching so quickly!

I love challenges, too! Thank you Weekend Boater!

Memorial Day Challenge

3/11/17
Start Weight: 137

5/29/17
Goal Weight: 125

I am nearing my goal weight and would actually like to be 5 pounds below...so that puts me at losing 1.2 pounds per week. Doable!
I am looking forward to sharing our journeys!

Weekend Boater, I so agree with your goals: "my goal is to continue being active and exercising, stay on plan, and if a 12 lb. loss or so follows that would be great! First and foremost, I will just take it day by day and focus on that day." My approach is exactly the same!

Thanks for setting this up WeekendBoater!

I'd like to lose an average of 1.5lb a week between now and Memorial Day, is it 10 or 11 weeks away? I make it 11 so am setting a challenge of losing 16.5lb which will mean an end weight of 187.5 which will be lovely to see!

I look forward to following and supporting everyone on their journeys and getting to know everyone better

SW = 204.0
13/3 = 204.0
GW = 187.5
