Exclamation Girls with Goals~Valentines Challenge #1

Good Morning Ladies,
The holidays are officially over and my weight is back to normal! I have been exercisng like a fiend! I am actually down a half of a pound and am quite pleased that I bounced back so quickly!
Now for the new challenge , there is 6 WI till valentines day not including todays so I propose that we lose 5% of our body weight which puts me at 8 lbs for the challenge! A self challenge I am doing is 4.5 hrs of exercise per week Which works out to two 1 hour workouts and 5 half hour workouts. I need to workout everyday because if I skip a day I end up skiping more and more till Im not doing it anymore UGGGHH!! Now I know the reality is there will be some days that working out just wont fit in and thats why I am making weekly goals instead of daily if I dont exercise one day I will have to bump it up for a few to catch up !
I believe that this will be the year I reach my goals as I am sure you will reach all of yours! Remeber there is only 5 months to bikini weather AHHHHHHH! Not that I can really wear one anyway LOL but I would like to look nice in a one piece! So are you up for it ladies ? Can we do this ? OF course we can we just need to put our bodys first ! WE CAN DO THIS!!!
So stats for starting this challenge:

SW 204
SW for this challenge 160.4
CW 160.4
GW 145

So off we go , good luck ladies and this year we will achieve all our goals!!! '
HUGGSSSSS

Cangrats hot momma keep on losing.

I'd like to join in too!

SW: 194.4
SW for challenge: 181.4
Challenge Goal: 172.4 (9 lbs)
GW: 140


I am new here and need some help to stay on plan. This challenge will give me a short term goal to focus on.

I am doing WW, but have decided to quit going to meetings, since it was getting very expensive! I am going to follow the plan on my own, with an incentive from DH - he's giving me $10 for each lb lost!

I'm in on that...I originally set my Valentine's goal to be 238lbs which is losing a stone in UK measures. To lose 5% of my body weight (currently 252lbs) I need to lose 12.6lbs.

Welcome to all of you !! Nice to see so many new ppl willing to join our challenge I hope you all stick it out !The only other part of the challenge that the new ppl arent aware of is if you meet the challenge you must reward yourself with something other than food but it must also be something just for you !!! Such as a pedicure or a new sweater something you really want!!! Good luck to all of you !! WI s are Tuesdays I will start a new thread each Tuesday morning ! You can come here to get support anytime you need it and most often you will get it GOOD LUCK LADIES WE CAN DO IT !!!

Hi! I would like to take that challenge as well. I am doing WW at home and my weigh-in day is Thursday. I am currently doing yoga on most days and will return to the gym next week. Hopefully I can keep up doing yoga in the morning and working out later in the day.
I will need to loose 10.25 for the Valentines day challenge..Woo Hoo!
Lets be strong!

I'll jump in, too! I gained about ten pounds back in the last quarter of '05, and I'm trying to set daily, long-term and short-term goals for myself. Losing 5%--12lbs--by 2/14 is a stretch, but not impossible, and it would be a tremendous motivation to keep going. Heva2015, teacherbarbie, gsmyeager, we're all in the same boat, so let's all be here for each other, okay?

I go to Curves, do yoga, pilates and cardio at home, and follow a good fats-lower-carbs eating plan. My reward will be a massage! I'm going to schedule it today.

Good luck to us all--judy

I've been trying to do this rewarding myself with stuff other than food for a while now. I need to get away from using food to reward and other emotions. I guess that goes back to being a kid when my mum would take me to McDonalds as a treat if I was good....
So, my reward is going to be a facial at this swanky salon near my house if I lose the weight in time for V-Day. I think I'll get my sister on these boards too and see if she fancies it as well...
