Hi Debbie I'm in! I started November 13 and end May 13, but I can certainly spend part of my spring hanging out here.

As far as challenging, I did something really extreme. I placed a bet on myself using HealthyWage and if I don't make my goal (which is extreme), I not only lost money but also don't get the extra money they would give me if I make it. I will also be seeing my mother at my husband's graduation and I don't want her to see me like this. I have been batting around the same 3-4 lbs for over 6 weeks now; I need to make a breakthrough!

What is the challenge? Is it a certain number of pounds or a certain number of days of exercise? I'd love to join!

You pick your own goal. At the start of the challenge and at least weekly, post your starting weight, current weight & goal weight. We encourage each other while having a friendly competition. 😀

So glad to be in another challenge thread with you kfunk!

I am excited to be in another challenge with you as well, I love how consistent you are!! My goal for this challenge will be to make it to 156 lbs., which will put me at an even 100 lbs. lost. I will have to update with my starting weight on the 1st to determine how many lbs. that will be!

I'm still determining what my goal will be. I want something reasonable yet challenging.

Welcome lonestarchick!

I'm in! I want to complete a C25K program. Even though the program I have is 8 weeks, I am going to need to double some of those weeks. I am not very strong and just started out exercising a few weeks ago. I think I will pick a 10% loss as a goal.

eta- Girls I am going to move over to the exercise challenge for now ladies, good luck!

I lost all of my progress and gained the weight back (and then some!) during my pregnancy and subsequent hiatus back in 2014 and hadn't lost a pound since...but, I am back again - as of 12.28.16 - and, I am determined to see it through this time. I owe it to my son and, most importantly, myself to become healthy again. Let's do this!

I'm in, too. It will be interesting starting January without a big holiday gain for once. I'll probably still shoot for 20 lbs although things are moving pretty slow lately.

Hi Debbie, thanks for starting this challenge. I've been AWOL from this site since 2013 and used to participate in the Biggest Loser Challenges, which were fantastic

I need to re-learn how to do trackers for this challenge
