Hi guys, thanks for joining! The more the merrier. I hope we all achieve our goal for the next long weekend! And maybe we can even get rid of winter by then!

I hope you feel better soon!!! Sage tea helps by the way. Just steep the sage (dried in the herb/spice aisle) in hot water.

I will keep my fingers crossed that we both get to 199 by May long weekend!

I'm in!

Aim loss of 7lb ( half a stone)

Which would bring me down to 17 lb lost which would be not too shabby at all for 2 months work..

Ok, first official wi on this thread

Down 6 lbs!!!!!

Start April 18 @ 279
Goal by May 23 = 269

Current: 273! Aiming to reach 269 by May 10, so I guess improved Vic day goal is 265. (I'd still be happy at 269 on Vic day!)

April 15 - 121.1 kg = 267.20 lbs

April 30 - 119.3 kg = 263.0 lbs - Goal reached April 30/11


So, I've actually lost almost 8 lbs since first posting this....and I will continue the challenge to see how far I can go. This forum has kept me focused and on track!!! So far, so good!!

Way to go MissAngelle...That's Amazing!
I had an amazing moment this morning with a 6.4 pound weight loss myself...I know I shouldn't have weighed this morning, but I couldn't help myself. I was down the weight from Monday, and I feel pretty good about it! My goal on this Challenge was to be in One-derland by Victoria Day and I have 6.2 pounds to go. I didn't know if I would make my goal as last week I only lost 1 pound, so I am ecstatic about this loss.
Have a great IP weekend everyone

Argh, I just missed my next goal (halfway there and out of obesity) by 0.2 lbs. Sigh.
Next week I hope!
