Default Easter Challenge

Anyone one interested in a challenge?

I am trying to lose 10 lbs by Easter weekend.

This week I am focusing on getting back on my plan, eating well , cooking proper meals and exercising more

So far today has been okay food wise and I did get a lot of exercise in -walking and swimming.

I am not sure about what I want to lose by Easter, but I am challenging myself to be below 157 by March 1st. It is only 1 pound away, but I have been going up instead of down. When I made the decision, a year ago in the beginning of March, to lose weight, I was at 157.

Maybe by Easter I would like to be below 154, my lowest so far.


It is so frustrating to know that in the last year I have been playing with the same 10-15 lbs. I topped out at 166 over the summer, and was down to 154 by October.

Yeah Mauvais,
I am with you. Ten pounds by Easter does not sound unreasonable at all. At least it gives us something to work towards.

Mauvaisroux - Great Challenge!

Count me in! That gives us 75 days for the goal. We can do it! Let's get motivated!

I think I can commit myself this time-all of the Christmas chocolate is finally gone from the house!

Default Oh goodie! A challenge!

Hi!

I am doing the Valentine's Day challenge at the Buddy Up thread. I had the goal of 160 for Valentine's Day and already I am 159. I am very motivated. I have the Easter Goal of 145 pounds. Easter is 75 days away. If I loose about one pound every 5 days...then it makes sense!!

ps. I have been really bad and have not been posting my meals on this thread area. I was really good for a while. It really helps to reflect on what you eat, especially in terms of nutritian.

I think this is a great idea, too! I would like to lose between 5 and 10 lbs by Easter to get to 135-140. It will be good to have some motivation as we still have Valentine's Day & a family birthday coming up!

Default easter challenge

Hi Can I join your challenge? I am new to this site and I am really excited to know of it. I want to eventually lose 100#, but I will take 25 by Easter. I see alot of you do the Adkins Diet - I lost 60# and then gained 75 back on that one. I have taken shots, eaten more grapefruit than should ever be allowed, did my first diet at 13, Nutri System at 15- I am 30 now and my next step is to have surgery. I would rather lose the weight without surgery, but will not rule it out. My doctor agrees I should have the surgery- I do not think he thinks I can lose the weight without it. My current weight is 308 and I would like to reach 285 by Easter Sunday. Heck I stopped biting my fingernails a year ago - -so surely I can do this.
Thanks to you all.

Oh, I thought I signed in. I'm up for whatever it is you're talking about. I'm too lazy to read the instructions right now. Something about Easter? 10 pounds? When is Easter again?

Welcome Sarajane!

I'm also fairly new to this site. I want your secret to ending the nail biting! This is, by far, my very worst habit! I hate doing it (most of the time I don't even know my hand is in my mouth) and would love to quit. What's the secret?

I also have done the Adkin's diet...succesful in the beginning but then put it all back on. I also blame losing my gallbladder to this type of diet. I joined Weight Watchers about 9 months ago and really like their plan.

Good luck to you!

Thanks for the welcome. I too had to have the gall bladder surgery with this diet. I take Advocare vitamins and they make your nails hard. They give you so much energy that there is no time to bite your nails. I am thinking of weight watchers - I can go during my daughters dance class. It is really hard to make it to meetings, but her class is 2 hours long and there is a meeting at the same time. How do you do a journal?


Thanks again for the welcome.

Sarajane...

Journaling is very easy...just write down what you have consumed (food and drinks) and the point(s) for each item and keep a running total. They will give you journals each week at weigh-in. My problem...I quit journaling months ago and can't seem to start again. I tried purchsaing a journal from WW and then purhased a palm device for work and have installed a journal program on it. Do I use either of these? Of course not! I weigh-in every week but have not been faithfully staying for the meetings, which are very beneficial. I weigh-in today over my lunch hour and I WILL stay for the meeting! Must get back-on-track!

Advocare vitamins? Will I find these at a pharmacy or Wal-Mart? Thanks for the information...I hate the habit!

Good luck with WW...I think you will find it works if you stick with it and do all of the "things" they recommend.
