Default **** THIN WANNABEES HOLIDAY CHALLENGE! ****

Hello all you Thin Wanabees,
I thought we all could use a challenge to get us through the holidays. We have about 3 weeks till Thanksgiving, 7 weeks till Christmas and 8 weeks till the New Year. So we need a challenge to help us, so we can at least not have a weight gain during this time, putting us behind the 8 ball when the New Year begins. And if we can lose some weight all the better.

Your goal can be anything you want it to be. Wether it be to not have a gain, to lose, to exercise, drink your water ou journal. You be the judge and decide the area you need to improve.

I am going for them all. I want to have a weight loss, even if it is just 5 pounds, that would be great. This way if there are tough times ahead during the holidays, it will not devastate me in the weight department. If I can do this than I feel when the temptations temp me I can resist and not over endulge so much. I do ok in the exercise area, and exercise almost every day and I need to continue to exercise during this time. I will work on drinking all my water everyday as well. I am very bad at journaling so this I will really try to do this daily during this challenge to help me see exactly what I have eaten.

So is anyone else game? Anyone and everyone can join in this challenge, if you are in our Thin Wannabee group or not. You are welcome to post with us and if you want to join our wonderful group, we would love having you with us.

Take care everyone and any other takers for this Holilday Challenge? Hope to hear from lots and lots of people.

Sassy Sharon

Hi, I'm Michelle. Kind of new here, but I'd definitely like to join this challenge if no one minds my popping in. I want to be down a full size by Christmas; that will be either size 10 clothes that have "give" or size 12 clothes that don't.

I've already got a weight goal set of 165 by Dec. 13th, because I'm taking a trip and want the people I'm visiting to be impressed!

Nice to meet everyone!

Am new to your group, but count me in. I need the push LOL. Would love to be 180 by Dec. 31. Would be happy with 185, but happier with 180. Need to get my water back up again too - hard to do tho with winter knockin' at the door. Last thing I want to drink on a cold day is a cold glass of water - ugh! Going to try for a min. of 64ozs/day. And the dreaded E word. Need to exercise at LEAST 3x/week.

My goal is to lose twenty pounds by the New Year. I have already lost eight so I have a little over a month to lose the next twelve. So with that means exercising regularly (which I have been doing and feeling real good about), making better food choices (again, doing well) and drinking plenty of water.

WTG losing 8 pounds already! That's AWESOME!!

I'm down 7lbs since I restarted Atkins/induction on Sunday. I have 9 more to go to make my New Years goal. Of course if I happen to lose more than 9 by the New Year, I wouldn't be too terribly upset

Default UP for a challenge

Hi,

I'm up for a healthy challenge.

I have two goals for the next month:

1st, to increase my water intake and decrease my intake of soft drinks.

2nd, to get up, get out, and get my backside moving again...My goal is to start walking at least once a day. Since I am still recovery from knee surgery I am going to start out a bit conserative with this goal. Starting with one block and gradually increasing it as I can tolerate. Hopefully I can at least make it to 4 blocks by the end of December.

Woooo...Hoooo..here we go!!!

Well, I am 2 pounds closer to my new years goal. Only 10 more to go. I think I can make it since there is just over 30 days left. I finally broke that plateau and I am charging full steam ahead again!!!!
