Smile G2009: Don't Gobble till you Wobble Thanksgiving Challenge!

Here it is, girls! The G2009 Thanksgiving Challenge!

I apologize, I should have had this up yesterday but I was out and about trying to....get a life!

This challenge runs from today till 11/26. WI dues dates are:

11/5
11/12
11/19
11/26


I know that's cutting it close, so you are more than welcome to post your SW as the weight you were last Thursday, if you wish.

WIs are due to me by 11:59 PM CT on Thursdays! The WIs MUST be PMed to me. If you miss more than two consecutive WIs, I will stop tracking for you, though you can still join in the discussion and such.

I hope you all had a great Halloween! Any leftover candy needs to be trashed IMMEDIATELY!

Let's whip through this month and get ready for the New Year!

girls!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween! I actually braved the RiverWalk with a friend and her son. Managed not to have a panic attack, got to see some pretty cool costumes, and got in over 3 hours of walking! That's a win in my book. Oh and the only treat I had was an outrageously priced mini-cup of cinnamon-chocolate ice cream. WI was today and I'm down 2.4 lbs! Yay me!

So my goal for this challenge is 8 lbs.

Hey everyone!!!

I'm BAACCCKKKKK!!!! LOL! Officially, my schedule has ALMOST been cleared. I started back on plan today.

My goal for this challenge is to:

eat 1500 calories per day and treat my calories as a budget rather than an all or nothing type situation.

AND

I would like to lose 8 pounds by the end of this challenge. Thats about 2 pounds a week!

Good luck everyone!

Sparkle - I'm assuming you'll post the deets on the points challenge.....I sure hope to see lots of folks posting in this thread!!!

Hmmm, ill give this a go .

I had an awesome Halloween at Knott's Scary Farm with my BFFs. I allowed myself to go over my calories because 1. its a Holiday! and 2. i was walking for almost 5 hours straight. I'm pretty sure that makes up for most of it .

My goal is to lose 7 pounds (from what i was last Thursday.)

SO!

SW: 264
GW: 257

I've never done a challenge where i have to PM someone, but it sounds simple enough .

I'm In
SW 280.6
GW 272

I'm going to shoot high on my goal, I need to get in gear and get healthy. I'm also motivated by 3fc again. I dropped out for a couple of weeks and then came back, and I'm revved up again. Sometimes I think you just need a break.

SW 280.6
11/5 282.8
11/12 281

My weight on 10/29 was 222. My goal for 11/26 is 212. 10 pounds.

My parents haven't seen me since I was about 250 and I want their jaw to hit the floor on Thanksgiving!

Thanks,
Weeb!

Hi everyone. I'm posting the challenge rules now. We will start on Thursday the first weigh in day, and go for 2 weeks! Anyone who has posted will be sorted into 2 teams (Pilgrims & Indians). This challenge is not a results challenge- i.e. no points awarded for lbs lost, the goal is to reward for items we control directly.

Points will be awarded as follows:
1 point - posting daily
2 points- on plan food wise
1 point- on plan water wise
1 point/30 mins exercise
5 points-weekly weigh in (on time)


So each day everyone should post, and let me know if they met their daily goals, and Shari (JasonsLea) can PM me a list of everyone that weighs in each week.

Hi ladies, not the best weekend for me, but not terrible either. Close to OP for meals, a little alcohol put me over the top. I stayed mostly out of the candy, just a couple pieces (brought the rest to work this morning and got rid of it all!!) My strength training has been going OP for the past week, so I think I'm ready to add back in a little cardio as well (Esp. since I want the points for the challenge). I guess my goal for this month is 6 lbs. So I'd like to be 203.5.

SW: 209.5
GW: 203.5

Glad to see a couple new faces, and especially glad to see some returning pals.

Hold up- If we want to be on the points challenge, do we post all the things we get towards the points on here, or do we PM it to you?

Thanks
