Hi,

I just found this thread. I am usually not much for challenges because I am losing sooooo slooooow.

How does this challenge work? Is there a time frame for losing 5 pounds?

Thanks!

Thanks friends! I'm so close to that goal...but it seems so far off. Things have been slooooowwww the past few weeks. No worries...I WILL get there!!!

Time2Lose - Welcome. Nope - no particular time frame. Just post/weigh as often as you'd like. The first person to lose 5 pounds gets a big pat on the back and gets to start the new thread! It's a lot of fun and keeps us looking at small goals in our weight loss.

I love looking at losing 5 lbs at a time. Never tried smaller goals before, but when I weighed myself this morning (I can't do it everyday), I felt as excited as if I have lost 10 or 15 lbs because the goal was met. What a great strategy! I am so grateful to have found this site.

Good luck everyone!

Man, I weighed myself twice today and had 2 different weights...can I use the higher one as my SW!? Nah, I'll use the first one to be fair.

SW: 178.2
GW: 173.2 (I would collapse with joy!!)

I wish I coulda pulled that last one out. It's getting harder and harder to lose weight fast! Oh well, it's still fun to try!

Of course it can happen!! I once thought I would never in a million years get past 147 and now look at me!

So I gained a lb back. I was down to 248 on Thursday, but I'm 249 today. My period started thursday, and I feel so bloated today. I havent had anything to eat yet, and I'm just so bloated - you can see it. And I think I have a stomach bug starting. So I'm not going to change my tickers or anything.

ANYway

CW 249
SW 249
GW 244

Congrats, Tish!!!
