    to the G2009 Halloween Challenge!

    This challenge runs from today until 10/31. Weekly weigh ins need to be PMed to me by Sunday night, 12 am CT. I'll post the week's results on Monday. This challenge runs for 8 weeks and if you miss 2 consecutive weigh-ins, I will stop tracking for you.

    Our lovely Eny will be back with us on the 18th!

    So, please post your start weights and an intro if you feel like it! Let's rock and roll, ladies!
  • Ahhh I am in!! I love these challenges and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.

    I just recently moved back home from college. I gained back up to 185 while there, and am already down 170! My long time boyfriend and I really enjoy the outdoors, and are hikers, which has helped alot since I got home.

    My goal is to be down to the 150's... so 159 lbs. 11 lbs to go!

    Good luck everyone!

  • I'm up for a Halloween challenge! I'm 23 and my 6th anniversary is October 31st.

    Two years ago, I lost 50-60lbs and then gained half of it back. Today I sit at 219.8 lbs, have lost 4 of the lbs I gained back, and I want to set a modest goal of 6.8lbs lost by Halloween. Beyond weight loss, I want wholeness- I don't just live in my body, I don't want to objectify myself, my body isn't just my temple.. its me.

    Aside from walking/biking to and from work, I have signed up for a dance class, and will begin taking Yoga for Plus sizes this Sunday. I'd like to start running again, despite my neighborhood, because like for most... moving makes me feel good.
  • Hey chick! This sounds awesome.

    About me....My name is Mary...I have been working to get the weight off for two years now and have stalled...due to my own negligence. Luckily no gain back...But these challenges always help me get focused!!

    I didn't do great on the Equinox challenge but I got the scale going down again. I want to try to be more aggressive this time.

    By Halloween, I am setting a goal of 10 pounds. I need to start exercising more frequently because I am a lazy couch potato haha. And no more telling myself eating the deliciously addicting Chic-fil-a twice a week is OK.

    Sooooo.....162 by Halloweeeeeeen. Let's do it!
  • Alright, I'm in!
    Challenges always help me feel more motivated. And I would like to look less scary in the mirror by Halloween, lol.
    My current weight is 262, and my goal by Halloween is 239... which is 23 pounds.
  • ok, I am in!

    I lost 8lbs last time, when shooting for 10. With about 8 weeks to go, I am shooting for 12 lbs. Today I am 253.3, So I'm going for 241.
  • hey guys I'm back.. for good this time. My name is Abby for those that don't know. I have taken a few months off due to.. well besides laziness my husband and i have been going through some rough times and i gained back about 50 pounds in the last few months which I didn't think was humanly possible.. but i digress..

    I'm glad to be back.. i'm smiling and not letting external crap get in the way of my health anymore!!

    let's work it! i wanna wear spandex for halloweeen!! hahaha
  • Cool! I need a challenge to help me stay on track while I'm on holidays.

    Quick question - I'm away for the next 3 weeks. I'll have access to a scale at my mum's house, but no internet. But I can email with my phone. Can you PM me your email address, JL, so I can update my weight?

    Cheers!

    Oh, and my stats. I'm 187.2 lb at the moment, and I'd love to be under 80kg (79.9 to be exact) by Halloween. That's 176.1 lb, and a loss of 11.1. Tough but doable.

    Cheers again!
  • Count me in too I'm Karen. I lost a lot of weight several years ago and gained most of it back. I am back on track losing again. Our treadmill was not working and we finally have it fixed. I am working my way through the C25K program (Week 4 Day 2 tomorrow).

    I weigh in on Sundays and will report then. My goal is to lose 17 pounds over the next 8 weeks

  • Never mind, I worked out how to get here on my phone! Gotta love technology. I'll be weighing in on time - yay!
  • WOOOT girls!

    We're off to a great start!

    April, Red, Jessica, Primm, and Karen!

    Welcome back Faux! So glad to see you getting back on the wagon.

    Hey Dcap!

    MARY! Good to see you! Love the new haircut!

    Oh, I didn't introduce myself.

    My name is Shari, the resident whiner. I'm just stepping in for Eny, the challenge goddess, who is on maternity leave. I haven't decided on a Halloween goal. There is a load of crap going on, mostly work related, that's consuming my thoughts. But I'm going to sit down and write down some goals today!

    I'm glad you're all here. Have a great Tuesday!
  • HI everyone!! Faux I'm so glad to see you're back, you always inspired/motivated me I've been kind of helping with Melissa's Challenges currently, so if you've got any good ideas feel free to throw them out there. Welcome all you new folks, we're glad to have you!

    Well apparently while Eny has been away I've lost the same 10-15 lbs all summer. I guess that being said it could have been worse, but I've been committed to making the last few weeks count just because I don't want Eny kicking my butt too much when she returns.

    I'm currently at 212 lbs, and the goal for Haloween (drumroll please) 197 (same goal from last challenge?! sadly).I've spent all summer enjoying being the size I am currently (it's the smallest I've been since 8th grade), but in that victory I've become too lax and whiny about my committments. I'm currently working on a new plan for myself, one that involves actual dedication and plans and goals. Rather than just saying I'm going to exercise, I'm going to start the C25K program back up again (3x per week-no excuses, no whining, fall has started here it's no longer too hot.) I will also use my exercise bike for 2 hours per week without fail. I am also going to track my calories meticulously (and not cheat on the weekends just because I don't want to...). In order to stop my failings on the weekends I am going to eat an average of 1700 calories. 1500 on weekdays will provide me with an extra 800 calories to eat on Friday, Sat, and Sunday if I so choose.

    And with this plan in place, I move forward, hoping to be down 4 or so lbs by the time Eny returns .
  • sprkle! let me know when you start c25k! would love to do it along with you. The program is amazing! i was up to 4 miles a day until.. well i slackedd off and havn't moved my butt all summer.. but again.. i digress... im so up for a c25k buddy!
    if there's a bunch of people interested we can always start a thread when we are ready
  • Hi there, I would like to join in on this challange as well. My name is Jacky and I have yoyo'd for years. I would just like it to fall off but I guess that won't happen by itself. So my goal is to be 12 (hopefully 15) pounds lighter by Halloween. I will post some other goals later. I'm at work so I probably should do some.

    My starting weight is 230
