did somebody say, ST. PATRICK’S DAY CHALLENGE? January 23, 2011

Ok.  I know we haven’t even finished the “Lose Five Pounds in January Challenge” or the “Valentine’s Day Challenge,” but I have been so on point the last two weeks, and I am trying to keep up the momentum.  The weigh in for this challenge will start tomorrow, which will make things easier since the V-Day challenge weigh in is also tomorrow.

I want to lose 17.5 pounds by St. Patrick’s Day, which is on the 17th of March.  If you do the math, this is about a 2.5 loss per week (which is the same as the V-Day Challenge).  I just need something to make me work harder.  Two and a half pounds is pretty manageable at this stage of my weight loss, and I want to push myself to work out as much as I can.  Let me know if you are down for some Leprechaun-weight-loss-madness.  And hey, if my goal is too high join anyway and just lower the amount of weight you want to lose!!!  We can still support each others individual goals.  I will post this page at the top of my blog for easy access and updates.

    Part of me hesitates to join a challenge. I’d hate to feel like I failed or something, but previous experience says that I like challenges. So, count me in.

    I’ll join up Didi, my goal is to lose 15 pounds- that’s only 2 a week for me. My body is still being weird!

    Weigh-in for St. Patrick’s Day.

    SW = 239.0 lbs
    CW = 239.0 lbs
    GW = 231.5 lbs

    I know, I know. I’m only aiming for 1 lb a week. I’m sure there’s the possibility that I could achieve more than that and I’d really like to, but as I’m just easing back into things, I think it’d be best if I don’t aim to high. Causing missing the stars could lead me back to square one. So, slow and steady. 🙂
