thanks Angihas!!

my loss has been pretty slow the last couple of months - 5 lbs a month in Jan and Feb. So 33.4 lbs by June 21 seemed VERY ambitious. But I've lost 4.4 lbs this past week, so hopefully, I found a way (using the GWF) to rev up my loss and make the remaining 29 lbs amount achievable in that time frame.

My sister in law and I were talking about the 10-15 we each put on over the winter and how in the summer it seems SO much easier to lose weight, after looking at what we've been eating vs activity level, we figured out, when its 32 or lower, noone wants that chilly fruit or frozen smoothie, we want warm, hearty soups, so my goal this summer is to find more calorie friendly soups for this upcoming winter, but with 65 degrees yesterday and 70s today, I noticed I instinctively reach for more fruits, cold veggies and -light- foods, and easily pass on the heavier stuff. (this is a hint to me that I was never meant for cold weather climes and that I should now move to the tropics)

I think we CAN and will do this

My official weigh-in for the past 2 weeks was today and - drum roll please - I'm down 6.5lbs! I've been stuck for a while so that is HUGE! I think I'll weigh every week (and hope the scale doesn't take over) just to encourage myself to come online to post the results and get motivated by all of you!

Feb 22: 232.5
March 8: 226

Yahoo! I think I can do this

Raichu, I love the banner! I'll use it as soon as I can have a siggy.

Angihas2 - I totally agree with you. I can lose weight in the summer, but I always seem to gain a bunch of it back come winter. This year WILL be different!

OK. I think this is the 2nd or 3rd challenge I've joined, but I keep moving the deadline back because I keep eating too much, but June 21st sounds doable to me. I THINK I can do ONEderland by then. Let's go!!!

Is it OK if I stay in the challenge but don't check in with frequent weights?
