Default The 5lb Challenge

Jodi and Rubens were talking yesterday about doing a five pound challenge. It seems like a great idea, so I propose that we start today, Wednesday 17th March, and the challenge is to lose 5lbs by the end of the month, which is a neat two weeks. We could weigh on Thursday 1st April in the morning to get that yummy overnight weight loss in!

I am up for it! It is a good challenge for me, as 5lbs in two weeks is doable if I do some exercise, drink the water, and stick to the plan.

All you phase oners will of course lose 5lbs in about 6 hours, but I am on phase two and my loss has stalled a bit so I really am up for the challenge.

Who is in?

Here's the new rule. Break the wine glass and fall in to the glass blower's breath.

Me too. And, just to let you know, as a Phase I chick, I have only lost 3 lbs so far! And, to make matters worse, last night I was 226 at the END of the day after dinner and this AM I was 227. I keep repeating to myself "water weight, too much salt" but I am really annoyed.

In any event, this is a reasonable and do-able challenge so count me in!

Since you started it, Clovey, is this the .357 stone challenge?

WELL!! Seeing as how April 1st is my birthday, and this isn't a prank, I'm in! Seems fitting that I lose 5 lbs. for my birthday!! Good post!
Do in your heart what you know to be true, for you will be criticized anyway.

I am going to jump into this challenge too. As a returning newbie, I need the goal to keep on plan. It is amazing to me that April is just 2 short weeks away. Good luck everyone.

Ok I'm in. Don't know how much exercising I can do with my knee but I am gonna try hard to lose the 5 cause I've been at a stall for the past several weeks. I am also goin to make myself eat 3 times a day as I have trouble with that as well. I'm bad about skippin breakfast. Good luck to us all!

God is big, so we expect him to speak with the voice of thunder or lightning or earthquake or fire. But God often expresses his powerful love in gentle whispers. Listen for God's whispers as well as his shouts.
