Default Please Join me for A Week At A Time Challenge

I loved this thread from a while back. It appears it no longer exists so I am willing to start it up again. The object is to take on a challenge related to your weight loss goals for 7 days straight. Choose whatever inspires you - a certain amount of water intake, no sugar, 30 minute walks, etc.

I will award accolades for each day you maintain your goal(s) and 7 day winner awards and pounds down at the end of the week on Sunday. We will begin each challenge on Monday - you can choose a new challenge or repeat any challenge for extra mileage.

We will support each other keeping in mind to stay focussed on the challenges of the day and week related to our weight loss. There are plenty of threads where a lot of time is spent on personal stories, so I would like to keep that to a minimum.

So join in if this sounds like something you would like to try.

My challenge for this week is 64 oz of water and staying within my WW daily points for 7 days!

Default me too! me too!

Count me in . My goals are to get some kind of exercise every day, and to eat no sugary anything. And to learn how to put in a second tracker for short term goal.

Great idea MsCat! I was just thinking about this thread and how I could use another short challenge! My 7 day goal is to not eat too much. That is to stop eating when full, not stuffed. So no going over on even one meal...

I'll count today as day one because I've only eaten breakfast so far and didn't eat too much. This should be a tough challenge with the holiday weekend!

Good luck everyone.

I'm in. I actually started something similar for myself. Starting this past Sunday my goals were to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner (Healthy) with no snacking, and to drink some water every day. No specific amount. Just some water, to get into the routine. So far, I've accomplished it every day. Just haven't had today's water yet.

Default Home Stretch

Welcome to our newest members skinnyjeans and Doss!
Well ladies, we are in the home stretch - stay strong as we travel home and prepare our evening meals.

So far I am on track - I have about 20 points still left on WW plan and I have 32 oz of H2O in - working on the next 16 oz before I leave work today. I had a weight loss this a.m. but I am trying to resist being a scale addict We all know that jumping on and off the scale is not a true indication of weight loss. Our weight varies throughout the day for a multitude of reasons - some that are not related to our weight loss efforts. We also know that when you start on a new regimine the first few pounds you lose is excess water and natural purging from the change in intake. So I know not to get too excited about the initial loss. I am going to wait until Monday morning to weigh in again.

Off the soapbox - to you all and I know we are all looking forward to sharing our accomplishments!

Thank you for the welcome. I know the first few pounds is usually water weight, but it feels SO good to see that smaller number on the scale.

Well, yesterday and today make 2 days meeting the challenge. Yesterday, 10 min rebounder and a 40 min walk, and today 20 min rebounder. (And maybe a walk later.) No sweets so far, although I have a ton of bing cherries in the kitchen and I'm not sure if they're cheating or not - they are very sweet, but it's natural fruit sugar. But if I eat enough of them they do tend to work themselves thru the system pretty quickly...

And I've already figured out how to add the short term goal ticker!

On to Day 2. I am so glad I made it through yesterday. We went to a baseball game for work and there was food everywhere! I managed to not overeat although I didn't eat the healthiest food. I'll have to watch that. Just because I am not stuffing myself doesn't mean I get to eat bad.

Good luck over the Holiday weekend everyone. We can do it!
