Default Official Thanksgiving Goal Thread

Thought I'd be bold and start it off.



Thanksgiving is right around the corner - 11/26! A little more than three weeks. Let's figure out our goals and maybe in the spirit of the holiday include something we are grateful for (like a NSV)!

I am at 179 and am looking to lose 5 lbs - which would put me at 174. I am grateful for this group and the fact that I miss checking in!

inthemidst - thanks for getting us started!! I'm shooting for 156 and couldn't be more grateful for this website and for thedailyplate - definitely the reasons that this time, it's working! If I make it to 156, it will be very exciting as I don't think I've weighed that amount in 10 years and can barely remember what it looks like on me.

Count me in! Starting off at 152 - looking for 148 (again) by Thanksgiving. More aggressive than my typical rate and will require a bit more rigor.

Didn't make the Halloween goal but I'm not giving up. This time my goal will be to stay at 1400 calories a day and get at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. I'll take any loss that comes with that! As for something I'm thankful for, today we had sunshine. We've had so many days of rain, I've almost forgot what it looks like!

I seem to be a half pound a week loser. I wish it were faster, but there it is. I'll work with it!

icu - with all that swimming, you've got this!

OMW - that's a great approach - do the right things and the results will come! How nice to be slimmer for a big holiday.

gardener joy - half a pound a week is so very much a trend in the right direction - imagine your results if you keep going at this rate for 6 mos, or a year!

nrz - 11lbs is a lot in a few weeks, but, hey, we'll be here to cheer you on!!

Yes! Count me in too. I am 220 and I would like to be 213 by Thanksgiving. I made my Halloween goal and I am happy for that. I also plan to walk more at home and keep up the walking on my breaks at work.

I am thankful for my boyfriend, Pete, he has been very supportive on my weight loss journey.

congrats again, Hydra, for knocking it out of the park in the last challenge!! Sounds like you have a good plan for thanksgiving - looking forward to seeing you blow it away again!

ICU - when are we going to 'C' 'U' again? That avatar doesn't have as nice a smile as you do! Hey, did you ever get the ipod/iphone/itouch that you were shooting for? Can't remember.

151.0 today as the weekend bloat peels back off. 1500 clean calories yesterday at most (estimating a bit with a pasta casserole), and about 60 minutes of swimming.

Tiredofthis, It's never too late to join in here!

Today is day 8 of getting back on track. I'll be exercising tonight while I watch Biggest Loser! I've kept within my calories. The scale is moving in the right direction and I am back to my ticker weight. I'm hoping (or should I say planning) to see more movement in the downward direction soon!

Stick with it chicks! We can do this!

icu - woohoo for the return of 151!

OMW - congrats on 8 days! It must feel great to be moving the dial again! I'm a little stuck right now so I may have to live vicariously through you

tiredofthis - welcome! Glad you could join us!
