Default 100 Days in the Lifeboat

Please join in 100 Days POP! Will it be a challenge - you bet! Can we do it - you bet!

Personalize in the manner that best fits you - make it work for your life after all we are making life changes. Break it up in blocks of time, establish accountability and exercise goals (don't forget to log them in the exercise thread also).

Who's with me - July 5 is day 1.

NOTE: I don't want this to be seen as a competition so I've changed the name of the thread - this is a personal challenge for me/us. I needed something to grasp on to to get me refocused.

I'm not in the 300lb club, but can I join in anyway? =)

My goals are to:

Keep track of my food every day and stay within my allotted calories.
No "junk" food. All my calories must come from real food, except for a small treat once a week.
Some kind of exercise five days a week, at least one of them being an outdoor activity (hiking, biking, walking, etc).

I'm so totally here! Thanks for starting this, Carol.

My plan will adjust over time; right now I'm planning on re-evaluating every 25 days. To start with:

1850 calories max
At least 2 servings of veggies
At least 4 glasses of water or herbal tea
30 minutes walking or other cardio daily
Don't miss any of my meds!

Have a great start tomorrow!

Angela

Im in...
weight this morning was 238.
I am breaking it up into 10-10 day challenges. I will increase exercise each 10 days.Starting with 20 mins. I will only weigh every 10 days(that will be a really hard challenge in itself).
Calories- real food only, 1400 calories ( no chips, white bread, crackers, ect)
eat off my small plates and measure everything.
Full gallon of water each day.

Day 1 is here!

I will eat at least 1400 calories - preferably around 1600 - I get in trouble when I go too low.

I will exercise 1 hour/day at least 4 times/week.

And the biggest one for me - I will record each bite that goes in my mouth!!!

I hope to see a new low on the scale come October 13.

I plan to re-evaluate as I go. At first I thought every 25 days, but every 10 days is tempting...

My eating goals:
No more than 1800 calories
Write down EVERYTHING that goes in my mouth
Get in at least 5 fruit/veggie servings daily.

My exercise goals are monthly, not daily, but as part of this I want to get my exercise mojo back, too. So I commit to my monthly exercise goals as well.

Thanks for letting me join in. =)

I plan to break the challenge up by weeks, which will make it uneven, but I can't help it - my brain thinks in blocks of Monday to Sunday!

Good morning everyone,

I'm looking forward to 100 days of being OP and to the results I will get. I have been following Weight Watchers but decided to started calorie counting and yesterday was my first day. I had a very successful day and am looking forward to another one today. I've also decided to not weigh myself daily as I was becoming a little to obsessed with it.

I hope everyone is off to a great start with this challenge.

My goals for July are:

Stay within 1400-1500 calories a day.
Exercise 5 times a week for at least 20-30 mins
Stay off the scale until 7/29
Lose 2 inches off my waist
