Default How about a Thanksgiving Challenge??

Anyone up for a Thanksgiving Challenge? We've got approx 14 weeks.

Let's all weigh in tomorrow (Wed 8/16) with a final weigh in on the day before Thanksgiving (Wed 11/22) and weekly (or how often you'd like) check ins.

This would be a great way to begin the holidays, with a huge accomplishment under our belts.

Anyone? Weigh in tomorrow! (Wed Aug 16).

Default Let's post our weight goals

Let's post our weight goals and our approach for losing the weight.

My goal: I know it sounds very aggressive, is 37 lbs by Nov 22 (day before Thanksgiving). I am 186 and I'd like to be 149 by then. That is 2 1/2 lbs per week, average.

My approach: I plan to stick to a 1200 cal diet, plenty of protein, veg and fruits. For exercise I plan to do cardio 30 mins/6x a week and lift 6x a week, alternating upper and lower body. I am training for a 5k on Sept 17.

You can also use the ticker. Make one yourself at http://www.tickerfactory.com. It's pretty simple. Just add the code that gets generated to your signature under "user control panel" (CP).

How about you guys?

This looks like a great place for newbies like me to start!! (well, new to the boards, not new to the PLAN)

Well if I 'm 235 now (give or take) my Thanksgiving goal will be 215....I'll weigh in tomorrow to mark my "official" weight....I work 7p-7a night shift tonight so my weigh in will be around 2pm or so.

My plan will be to get to that gym 3-4 days a week and stick to a reasonable diet plan, 1500 cal? I'm not great at counting actual calories, etc., I just try to make smart choices.

OK pals.....looking forward to the support and the love....will check in tomorra

I would love to be 30 lbs thinner by Thanksgiving. I see there are alot of newbies here so I think this is the place for me. I am 266.5 lbs today. I'll come back in the morning and post my weight. I'm a calorie counter so let me see if I can get the job done. See you all tomorrow.

I'm so in, I need something to help me get motivated

I'll go for 20 pounds by thanksgiving. My current plan is to eat around 1,300ish calories a day. I've been doing pretty good lately, in the food part. Eating tons of veggies and fruit (this from a person who used to live on chips and bread and other carbs :-P), and trying to get tons of protein too. I need to step up the exercise (walk at least 4 days a week, and weights on off-days) and drink more water. Time to start getting up at 5 am to get a walk in before work ><


Good luck girls!
