Default 20 lbs. by Halloween.

So, I want to lose 20 lbs. by Halloween. My mom is going to try to lose 20 lbs. also. It's nice to have that kind of support when your trying to lose weight.

This is exactly what I am trying to do also! I am right now at 370... hoping to hit 350 on 10/31 - of course more would be great! lol

I am doing daily exercise on wii (Walk It Out - love this game! addicted!) and upping my water and fiber. Chewing foods more carefully is a big thing for me.
So, should we do weigh ins on Mondays?

I'm in too. I just joined OA, and started my abstinence from carbs and sugar yesterday morning. I hope to take off at least 20 by Halloween. Good luck to all of you- how are you going to do it??

If we want to do weekly weigh-ins I'd happy to track and post our progress

I have recently gone gluten free and am now working to cut carbs out of my life.
Slowly getting there. I think i just need to take the plunge. (atleast bread is already cut, hahaah)
