CCRRMM Easter Sprint, All Queens Please Get On Board NOW! Time's Awastin'! Huzzah!
Ok, s, the name for this challenge comes from Noble Anagramatic, who says she's ready for an Easter sprint and so the pushy Amarantha dinna want to wait for a consensus so here it IS!!!
Folkettes, hast thou noticed those chocolate cream Easter eggs in the stores? Hast thou noticed the Easter JellyBelly collections? Dost thou realize that the Hippy Hoppy Easter Bunny be coming our way in but a few weeks, as Anagramatic hath reminded us, it's April 11!!!!!!
WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO ABOUT THIS CRISIS, QUEENS? Are we gonna let the Candy Marketing Industry dictate the size of our little pink Easter outfits beneath our Easter bonnets with all the frills upon its!!?
I SAY, 'NO WE AREN'T!!!'
Was I shouting? How rude?
Ok, we need to get on board the Hippy Hoppy Easter Train and focus on why we all came to 3FC in the first place (at least I think we all came in the first place to focus on weight!!! ) ... I'm proposing we hop aboard this challenge train and declare WHAT WEIGHT WE ARE GONNA BE AT ON EASTER MORNING!!!!! That could include just maintaining a weight we're already at, so no one has to worry about losing ... just kinda cooling it and hocus pocus focusfocusing!!!
The Easter Towel Boys have agreed to coordinate the challenge. They're proposing that this just be a weight posting thread with limited conversation and everyone just posting a weight, a goal, reporting in a few times and reporting an Easter weight. No one should feel obligated to cheer anyone on as virtue beith its own reward. No one should stop posting on the food/exercise threads or the discussion thread!!! Winners should go out and buy something fab for themselves as, frankly, there's no funding for prizes from the palace management. Winners will have gained a MORAL VICTORY! Now that's exciting, right?
Ok, Easter Towel Boys! I will take thy Hippy Hoppy Challenge! My Easter Weight Goal is 146!!! I pledge to report in on weigh-ins to let thy know how I'm doing!!! I pledge to hocuspocusfocusfocus!!!! I pledge to go buy a little pink Easter outfit! I pledge to be brief! Ok, bye!
This is an excellent idea since it is beginning to become very, very crazed in the stores.... all the stores seem to be dripping w/ "Easter gifts, Easter treats."
So, yes, send on over a towel boy... in fact, send on over two please...
I'd like one to fold the towel and the other to unfold the towel.
Here we go.... Since I "unofficially" weigh 163 ( at home weight) the past 3 days....I 'd be very impressed if I weighed 160 on April 11.
Thanks Empress! This will be outstanding not to feel so
"Fifth wheel" with peeps and solid and hollow bunnies and etc and etc.
Goodness gracious... hope Memorial Day doesnt turn into another CandyDay...
So .... just have the towels boy arrive in the am please...

Relapsed but figuring this out, one meal at a time.
I don't want to even speak the current numbers, but I'm going to aim for a 4 pound loss, which will get me 2 below my sig. number. WI is the day after Easter. Not sure, actually, if there is a WI. I may end up having to weigh at home, but ... I will! Let's go!

I'm going to post this on all the CCRRMM threads because I read it today and it really hit me, not that I have to necessarily run for exercise or exercise at 5 a.m., but that it IS necessary to do it (and to eat right) whether I really feel like it or not, UNLESS I prefer life at 247 pounds. I can't afford to wait until I feel like it. If not now, when? ... 'I've been running every morning at 5am for about 13 years now--and never ONCE has it been easy to get up and do it. Thirteen years and never once! ... Why do I keep doing it? It is the fastest, most efficient and effective way for me to keep my weight down ...'
