S/C/G: 261/158/below 160

Height: 5'8" (Dang, I shrank an inch!)

Default Labor Day Challenge, anyone??

Labor Day is on September 1, which is 9 weeks and 3 days away.

I'd like to be 200 lbs. by Labor Day. Actually, I'd like to be in Onderland by September 1, but I will shoot for 200 even.

I like these challenges. Even if I don't succeed, the challenge provides something to strive for. And I don't think it has to be a number on the scale, by the way. The challenge could be fitting into one smaller size by Labor Day, or using the next notch on your belt by Labor Day, or going two weeks entirely on your program by Labor Day.

Anyone else?

I'd like to be 12 pounds lighter, which would make me pretty much at my goal weight. Sept 1 is the first day of spring (here anyway) and my wedding annerversy. Would be lovely to be that much lighter by then. I'm barely losing anything lately and need to keep working at it.

I'd like to be 250 or less.
Want to be 270 or less for July 4.

Is 2 lbs/week reasonable?
mmm. LOTS of bicycling and exercise.

I would like to fit into the three pairs of brand-new size 16 slacks I have hanging in my closet. I've never worn them. I ordered them through a catalog about a year ago, but never bothered to send them back.

Well I'm going to try this, I just stepped on the scale and it reads : 278lbs, YUCK!!!!!

So my goal is going to be to go down to 270lbs by labor day. That is very reasonable and I feel I can do that. I'm not on any plan, I'm just going to watch the portion size and get in a workout a day. Oh, an water, water, water.

I think I'm going to shoot for 215 (loss of thirteen pounds). I was hoping I'd be in Onederland by then, but there's no way. It's not looking good for my July 4 goal -- maybe I'll have better luck with Labor Day

I, too, would like to be 165# by Labor Day.

Seriously, I think 20# in 2 months is not too much to ask, especially now that the weather is nice. So my Labor Day Goal is 260.

Maybe a challenge will be just what I need to get my butt back in gear. The losing has really slowed down lately. Perhaps this is connected with the eating, which has really sped up lately! By labor day I'd like to be in the 140s. So that's 7 pounds to hit 149. A fairly realistic goal, although I've slowed down to about 1/2 a pound a week. Time to pick up the pace. Excellent. Gulp.

I'd like to be 280 then. If I really work hard, I think I can lose 20 more pounds in these 2 months.

I would love to be at 230 (-16) by Labor Day but would be happy at 235 (-11). By Columbus Day I'm hoping to be at 225, I'm going back to Florida to see my sis again, and would like to look better in the beach pictures. I guess if I'd kick things back into high gear that shouldn't be too hard of a goal, but one never knows what the body is going to decide to do!

Good luck everyone!

Hmm, was at 207.6 last weigh in (and I won't be getting on the scale any time soon till I "readjust" for the last two days). I've been losing very slowly so I'll aim for 204 and hope to work at doing much better.
