September Challenge
 
Anyone up for a new challenge...
I was at 183 this morning...
I would like to lose an average of one pound per week between now and September 1st, well, that would be eight pounds but I'll even shoot for ten pounds...
That will be very challenging but, I would really like to accomplish it.
That would bring me to 173 or 175.
I'm going to have a reduction mammoplasty sometime in September so I'd like to be as fit as possible before that.
Okay girls...inspire me and join me!

how I'll get there.
1. eat less in general
2. plan meals with my partner so we'll all eat healthier
3. pack food to take to work so I don't eat junk that people bring into the office
4. exercise 4 times per week with at least 30 minutes of cardio 3Xs per week
5. do a mix of yoga, strength training and cardio
6. eat more veggies and lean protein
7. avoid simple carbs for complex grainy carbs
8. eat fish at least once a week like Mauvais!
9. eat small meals often during the day
so I don't ever get starved and binge-y
10. drink plenty of water

are you in??? let's do it!!!

I know....I can't wait!!! Easiest weight loss ever....ummm...well, not really.
I keep inviting girls who need donations because I could fill a number of swimsuits with what's going bye-bye! But, sure, come along! Maybe we'll get a 3fc discount!

Soozie - I know how excited you must be to get rid of that extra weight. Hubby and I have looked a bit into breast reduction for myself and I am seriously considering it - given I can get down to a good weight and stay there for a while. I've got the back aches, shoulder dents, saggin to the floor thing goin on. *L*

I'm curious where you got all your information or if you researched it at all before deciding to do it...

Good luck to you with yours! I am sure you will be feeling so much better.

I would like to be below 160 by Sept. 13th. That would be about 10 lbs. I have a good friend's wedding to go to.

I am currently doing the summer challenge whic for me ends on July 18th - I am 1 lb away from my mini-goal of 10lbs loss.

I would like to join you on the September challenge too. I will start that one on July 18th and work towards another 10 lbs lost by September 1st :)

dentrassi 07-05-2003 04:05 PM

Count me in too!!! 10 pounds lost by September 1st. Hope I can manage it, because the weight loss is going to slow down once i start phase 2 of the South Beach diet.

Ok ok ok...
 
Chickies... I am not doing so well with the weight loss as of late. I think I've gained a pound (or two... gasp). :o I'm thinking there is a direct correlation to my weight loss and my participation here. And since I haven't been spending a whole lot of time online this last month I have been eating like an alternapiggy. :ink: Sooooo... I'm in on the September challenge and I WILL be spending quality time with you crazy women this summer... promise. :D I'll start over with my one pound a week goal... fresh start tomorrow. Now I'm going to go eat the candy bar (Heath Bar) that my evil dh just bought home from the store. :lol:

soozie 07-07-2003 08:42 AM

Hey Chickies,
glad that you're joining in...and Mauvais...congrats on doing so well with the summer challenge...you'll be our role model...;)

lizziness...I did do research but mostly by speaking with women who had reductions...and then met with the doc for a consult and learned more speaking with him. Talked alot to women who had the procedure. They all said that they were really happy that they went for it and were pleased with the results.
Love, Soozie
What day of the week should we weigh-in and should we post that here in this thread? Any suggestions girls?

Ruthxxx 07-07-2003 10:24 AM

I'm in! My goal for Sept 1 is to be in the 180's. That's ten pounds and I'm determined to do it this time. Den, I'll be pulling for you as we hit the next Phase.

soozie 07-07-2003 11:00 AM

Hey Girls,
i saw that we have the weekly weigh-in thread and it looks like folks post in there on Mondays...should we post our challenge progress there or here? It is difficult with all of the threads...tho exciting too...remember when alternachicks was just a thread?

dentrassi 07-07-2003 12:12 PM

BOTH!! I weigh on Sundays, and would like to keep up on the challenge here since they are related but not identical things.

I HAVE LOST 5 POUNDS ON THIS CHALLENGE!!! (Good thing you started it when I was half of the way through week 2/phase 1 is all I can say!!!)

mauvaisroux 07-07-2003 01:03 PM

Do we want to post our stats, September goals and long term goals here to begin with?

soozie 07-07-2003 02:17 PM

Yeah,
Let's do that Mauvais,

Height: a statuesque 5'1"
Highest weight: at least 196lbs...didn't weigh myself much then!
Current weight: 183lbs
September Challenge Goal: 173-175lbs
Long Term Goal: 135-145lbs

sounds good Den...we'll post our progress here for the challenge.
and congrats on your loss...you go girl!!

Tallara 07-07-2003 02:28 PM

Oh duh... I want to join too. I will start when we get back from Newyork on the 17 (will start on the 18th of july) from then till sept first is 6ish weeks. I will pledge 5lbs. Im afraid to pledge more because its going to get harder to loose the lbs from here on out.

so 142.5 from july 18-sept 1st, starting weight 147.5
