Thumbs up Valentine's Day Challenge!



Wow-it's been a while since I've started a thread. I'm vowing to get moving so I can look smokin' for a romantic Valentine's day! I've been avoiding the scale over the holiday, but I'm going to commit to 12lbs by v-day. We have 45 days to shed this Winter coat!

I'll post my starting weight and a ticker tomorrow.

Happy New Year all!

I think I need a goal to keep me motivated. I think I will say 15lbs by V-day.
I know I gained 3lbs this holiday season so that needs to come off first.

I have been thinking about joining WW since my centre closed, I really do need the accountability

Ok. My ticker is up. Boy was that hard to do! I have gained 5lbs over the holidays. I'm hoping it's just "water" and will come off fast, but I really hated having to put that number. But it is reality so here I go!

I know we are all coming off of the Holidays, but let's think forward and try to have an OP weekend.


Who's with me??

Tues 1/6- 266 (-3)
Tues 1/13-264 (-2)

Yay challengers!

I'm all about mini goals right now, so my goal for today is to do a two-mile workout (done!) and to be completely, 100% POP.

Hey Guys,

I am in as well. I am off to Mexico with family on March 23. So, Val day is about half way. I will lose 10 lbs by that day, and I will exercise (treadmill) 5 out of 7 days per week minimum. Today, am cleaning out my treadmill room and getting all the stuff I piled onto it so that it's ready to go.

thanks for the challenge!!! I am also going to COD today to weigh in again today, I'm sure it will be busy. I'm in Calgary, and our centers are still open.

I'm in. I haven't done very well in maintenance. Gone from size 8 to size 12! Time to get back with it. Although, I'll have to figure out how to do the LAWL on a very limited budget until February. I think just adding back in exercise will help alot! I'll shoot for 10 pounds (or size 10) whichever comes first is fine with me.

AmyLou
I am in also. I am setting a modest 13 pound goal for V-Day. Right now I am at 153, but I am starting the new year off with some great walking so I hope that will help to motivate me to eat right also.
1/2/09 - 153 lbs.

I'll try to weigh in every Friday and see how that goes for me. Thanks everybody for all of the great support and motivation. Laura

Hey Amylou!

I am in! I cannot weigh myself as my battery died in my scale and am awaiting new batteries from eBay... but Iam guessing 245. I weighed 243 3 days ago on the Wii Fit, so this is a guess-timation!

I am in for 10lbs!

Wohooo! I need to eat 2 fruits for my dessert and I will have had a POP day! Yeah!

I'm so glad to see a good group of people up for a challenge. Just to be clear-this is just a place to come and post your short term goal and progress! No rules or anything. Join in whenever you like!

If you want to have specific w/i days or post menus etc, feel free! I'll probably be posting my mini-goals.

Have a weekend you and your scale can be proud of!

Hi all,
I have been on LAWL since 3/15/07. Did not continue faithfully, but made the commitment to go back faithfully only to find out my center is closed. I'm over the initial anger, and ready to get on with it. I know the program, and I know if I follow it I will lose the weight. Looking forward to joining in with all of you to my goals. Valentines goal of 12 pound loss. I will post starting weight on Monday.
Linda

Okay so I am committing to weighing myself "officially" on Mondays. I remember last year that my official weigh in day was like Wednesday or Friday so I would binge and cheat on the weekend hoping to recover before my WI day. Not this time! If I WI on Mondays, I have to be good on the weekend to see my progress! (Did that make sense to anybody? lol)

Hello everyone! Just checking in. I was able to complete my weekly exercise goal of 10 miles with WATP (Leslie Sansone) ... I actually did 11 miles!
