Default ATTENTION: Thin Wannabees SWIMSUIT Challenge !!



Calling All Thin Wannabees!

It's that time again! Congrats to all who made their goal and to all who made some of their goal and to all that tried at least in our Easter challenge. Today is a new day and this is a new challenge – a new start – so let’s DO IT … Come join in our SWIMSUIT challenge and let's get into our bathing suit or at least make it fit us better! So come on in – set your goal … on your mark – get set – GO!

Please check in at least once a week with your progress - if you have a loss, or are the same, or "gained" (remember, confession is good for the soul) ... whatever your goal is just check in and let us all know how you are doing.

My goal for this challenge will be:
1) Continue with Curves and my daily walking!
2) drink at least 80 oz water or more every day
3) hopefully lose at least 5-10 lbs

So, what's your goal??? Come on, hope to hear from everyone! Each mini-goal brings us a bit closer to our big goal for 2007! WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!

Love, CJ

Count me in too, but what's the time frame? I want to set a weight goal
as well as behavior/diet/exercise goals.

Cool. That'll put me in good shape for my trip to Prague (mid July). I'm presenting at a conference and want to look good doing so... .

OK, I'm up for the challenge and this is my list -

1) I will go to the gym and exercise at least 50 times during May
and June. That's about 6 x per week.

2) I will limit my average daily calorie intake to be at most 1250
calories. Hopefully this will be in the form of 5 small meals a day.

3) I will eat tons of vegetables, drink tons of water, and consume
most of my calories during breakfast, "brunch" and lunch every day.

4) I want to see how often I can stick to my "ideal" meal plan,
which is -
9oz skim milk and 12 fl. oz. fruit for breakfast,
"yong tau foo" for brunch,
vegetables, wild rice, and 5-6oz of meat/fish for lunch,
fruit and vegetables for afternoon snack,
9oz skim milk and vegetables for dinner.

("Yong Tau Foo" is an asian soup place near my office that
makes custom soups with lots of vegetables and tofu or
fish dumplings.)

5) I want to get my percent bodyfat down to 28% by the end
of the two months. If I reduce my bodyfat, then I don't
care how much I weigh.

*) The bonus prize will be if I lose 2 lbs per week. That would be 142
lbs on June 25 or 140 lbs on July 2.

Determined,
Lisa

Default OK I am in!

I am in this challenge too.

My goals are to:

1. Make good food choices and follow the Weight Watchers plan.
2. Drink my water, no matter what, just get it down.
3. Continue to go to Curves and exercise in some other way when I can't go or even do both. Do this faithfully at least 5 times per week.
4. Lose at least 10 lbs, during this time and continue this summer to lose even more.

Take care everyone and good luck!

Reporting in here! I have lost 2 lbs! Still doing my Curves and Walking and ama getting better at getting my quota of water down. How's everyone else doing so far?

Lisa: You can report in whenever you feel like it - there is no set day. It would be nice if we all posted at least once a week tho. Hope everyone is doing great!

Love, CJ

An update on progress towards the SWIMSUIT CHALLENGE:

1) I'm not getting enough exercise, but I'm not off the wagon.
I'm going 3-4 times per week instead of 6x/week.
2) I'm doing really well on limiting my calories.
3) I'm doing well on consuming vegetables, but I'm having too
much salt (mainly in the form of soy sauce on my veggies)
and I'm not getting enough water. I drink TONS when I remember
but then I forget for several hours, and by the time I remember
again I'm already feeling crappy. I can really tell now how much
the water helps me.
4) I'm sticking to my meal plan. It's more of an automatic
routine now, so that's very helpful. Not as difficult any more.
5) My percent bodyfat is NOT declining the way I would expect
if I'm losing only fat. Either I'm burning muscle as well (which
I fear) or else something like hydration is interfering with the
measurements. In any case, I'm not going to meet my 28%
goal.

I may be a little late in joining the challange, but I'm in, too.

My goals for the end of June are:

1. To record my food in my WW points journal every day.

2. Not to go over my daily/weekly point allowance.

3. Too start walking w/my daughter at least twice a week.

4. Drink at least 48 oz of water daily (with 1/2 of that actually being water and not crystal light. I would do real well every day if I could count all sugar free lemonade I drink as water, but WW suggests that count for only 24 oz.of the 48 they suggest).

5. Loose a minimum of 5 pounds by the 26th (my last weigh-in of the month).

I could come up with a few more, but I think that should work for this month.
