Default Halloween/Thanksgiving Challenge

I know we still have until Tuesday to start this challenge, but I wanted to give everyone a chance to see this and be able to prepare and possibly start all together Tuesday! But no matter when you joine everyone is welcome!

The schedule for this challenge will be to set a final goal for Thanksgiving (which is about 7 1/2 weeks away), but have a half way check point for Halloween (which is about 3 1/2 weeks away). So my goal will be, 8 lbs by Halloween, and a total of 16 lbs by Thanksgiving!

Good Luck! We can do this!!

Kimberly, That sounds great! My goal for October 31 will be 6 pounds and Thanksgiving will be a total of 13 pounds. My lost has slowed down to 1.9 pounds week. Yuk!!! Oh well. 13 pounds by Thanksgiving would make me happy. put me right at 175 make. Yeah. My WI yesterday was 188 exactly. I am doing a WI on Monday so I will go with that as my start weight.

I would really like to hit the 170's by Halloween and the 160's by Thanksgiving. I am not sure if that is realistic, but I am going to try. So 9 lbs. by Halloween and 19 lbs. by Thanksgiving. (I am already thinking a LOT about pumpkin pie. Yikes.)

I am new to the challenge concept, but, I would like to lose 12# by Thanksgiving and 5# by Halloween. Without giving up my glass of wine! What is the use of being thin if I am miserable?
I am a little lost on weight goals because I am really trying for a size and not a weight. I would like to be a 14 by Thanksgiving and a 12 by Christmas. Not sure what weight that would be. But I think each size is around 10#. Tues

I had to bail on the Columbus Day challenge due to a medical leave (only lost 5 out of the 10 I had set as a goal) so I am going for the gold for this challenge. I am shooting for 7 by Halloween and 15 by Thanksgiving. I have set a 'mini' goal for myself by Christmas of losing 50 pounds and I have lost 31 so far. Pushing myself for this new challenge (thanks Kimberly) will keep me focused.

I'm out for the weight loss goal. But I'm all about hopping in with an exercise goal. I'll crunch minutes later on tonight.

Well I am going to set my goal high of course I always do but I have a method to my madness this time. Since I have been sick the past 3 weeks I have not been doing a lot of being OP. My mom and brother were actully cooking and there was no exercise other than what I was doing at school AKA walking. So this week i am getting back POP and so I figure that I will drop a good bit of water weight to start with. Sooooo here are my goals...

Halloween 10 lbs
Thanksgiving 20 lbs

gotta go time to make a POP breakfast!

Good luck to everyone on their next challenge!!!

I am going to sign up for 5 pounds by Halloween and 12 pounds for Thanksgiving. We can do this!! I'm not getting any candy for trick or treaters this year - so I won't have to eat it all! (I don't normally get but about 3-5 at my house anyway...)

OK heres to another challenge.

I am in for 4 lbs by Halloween and 8 lbs by Thanksgiving. I have been having a hard time losing my weight, but I am really going to try to do it.

My mini goals will be a lb a week. If I don't make it, then it rolls to the next week.
