Post Just Need the Challenge!

Hey everyone! I am new here and just need the challenge. Sometimes we all need someone else to push us beyond our limits. Along the way I hope that we can all be supportive of each other and have someone to vent to if needed. I need someone to understand what it is like to be overweight and struggling to get it off. I have too many skinny friends who say they understand (when they don't) who are supportive, but I need ppl like me! So we can make the weigh in being Friday if ya want and a goal wt loss of 10lbs by the end of December.

Here's to losing weight!

I too plan to lose 10 lbs between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Lets drive each other to do it! I need a good challenge...I've gotten physically and mentally lazy and need to spark things up a bit.

1...2...3...lets go!

Well did the weigh in this morning (I hate the scale) and was surprised to see that I have lost 3lbs! Which is great! Even better since I weighed myself on the 18th and that was when I weighed 222. I am so excited to already start my journey with this 3lbs gone from under my belt! I know I have a long road ahead of me but now there is a little less to lose along the way!

Josie, we're right about the same height and weight...I'm an inch shorter than you and 9 pounds lighter. I'd be thrilled to have someone to "challenge" me and to hold accountable.

I also have a personal goal of a 10 pound weight loss by the end of december!

you have to be here for 20 days, and then the option appears in your user CP to post a signature. the instructions are in that part.

I'm going to join you, I join so many longer challenges on 3fc and don't finish them, and don't reach any goals.

I'm going to try really hard to make this one.

Today's weigh in 281.6

So goal would be 271.6 end of December

Thank you so much, I needed this today.

Peggy, is it hard because it's such a long term goal? Can you make it through a day? A week?

Weebles, I think I just forget to post on a lot of challenges like weekly posting that I just give up. I can't even keep up with the monthly points challenge on the 100 pound club, where you give yourself points on a daily basis for points, exercise, and water. Sometimes I think I just join too many challenges. So If I narrow it down to this one, and the 5 pound Goal (I don't forget that one), maybe I'll do better.

Thanks for asking. I just need to stay connected instead of being embarrassed because once again I signed up and didn't report in like I was supposed to.

I guess I should document that I'm 210. Of course, I won't be happy with a 10 pound loss of 200. so my goal is 199. ELEVEN pounds.

Thanks alot weebles, I just thought that I was overlooking it or something.

Good to have you join us Peggy and Cherry! Our little group is growing. We can do this little by little if we just take it one day at a time.

Good luck this week!
