Default 8 weeks until christmas! A challenge anyone?

Hey all...so its November 1st who is up for a holiday challenge?

there are 8 weeks until Christmas, why don't we make it our goal to lose 1 pound per week (or more if you can) until christmas? We can designate our respective holiday (christmas/Hanukah etc) as the day we celebrate our personal successes...in any way you want . It could be no diet restritions for that day...buy yourself a gift and wrap it up so you can enjoy it on that day...what ever... we can share our new on here, what we are doing, how we celebrated etc... WHO DO YOU THINK???

I am up for it, who wants to join in???

OK, I'm in. (I'm new to the site - nice to meet you!)

This is exactly what I need. I'd love to aim for 2 pounds per week, but with the holidays... ...baby steps, right?

SW - 163
CW - 155
GW - 130
Christmas mini-goal - 147

This will get me back to where I was last June. I had made great progress since March, but then I moved. I was mega stressed out and went backwards a bunch. Ugh.

OK, my present to myself will be strappy red heels for my mini-goal, and kick-*** new jeans when I reach my goal weight. (I only have 2 pairs that fit at all right now. One has holes in the crotch, the other is way too low-rise.)

Cool, good luck! Talk to you soon,

Emily

Count me in! I'd love to lose 15 pounds by Christmas. I started WW core today and my goal is to exercise 5 days/week also. I feel like I'm really motivated to lose it this time.

I'm in. I've been losing since about August or Septmber and I've lost 27 lbs. with 38 to go. I hadn't planned on losing during the holidays, I LOVE to bake and have 4 kids and a hubby that love to eat it BUT I'll join this challenge and work on 1 pound a week. That could put me down to 175 with a total of a 35 pound loss. I think that sounds great. I'll be more than half way to my goal.

I ate really well today also and made it to the gym. I was pretty tired so I only did 30 minutes of cardio, but I figure it's better than nothing. I'll do my first official weigh on Friday and every Friday after that.

Hey I'm in too! I've been on WW since July and had a 15 pound loss goal, I'm just over 10 pounds gone and am having a hard time with the last 5. And actually since I started at 3fc July of 04 I've lost almost 20 pounds which is crazy to think about. Anyway I think being in a group like this around the holidays will be great and will give me that extra kick in the butt that I need. Not sure what my present to myself will be, maybe just lookin good in my clothes! lol Well I'll be checking in with you ladies to see how everyone is doing. GO US!!

Well, I weighed this morning, and I'm down 3 pounds. And it's my TOM, so I'm overjoyed.

(My DBF, in his infinite sensitivity, said to me this morning "3 pounds? That's not very much." Grrrr. We had a talk. In his defense, he back-pedaled immediately. He's trying to lose weight too, but doesn't really use the scale, and so doesn't set much store in small victories. Men. )

fitgal, what plan are you on? I'm doing WW (loosely, no meetings) and I am just love that if I have to get Wendy's, then I don't have to feel guilty about it. Guilt will send me to Ben and Jerry's faster than just about anything. Good for you for getting back in stride right away though.

Hey ladies!
Well I am not really on a "plan" pre se, I am just trying to cut out the junk and watch portion sizes. I do however love WW philosophy, I had a friend "on it" during university, she didn't lose any weight, but thats her own fault (she really didn't follow it at all...thus no weight loss obviously). I was able to borrow the WW stuff from her! My mom's friend loves it and she has lost like 8 pounds already...I would love to join WW but right now I don't have the money.

This week has been tough for me, I am eating well I just have no energy for the gym, so I took time off of the gym this week-guilt free- I will start fresh next week!

Sure, I'm in. 8 pounds sounds like it would be a great mini goal for Christmas. I'm currently 228 so I need to get to 220.
