Default 5LB Challenge #107

Let's go ladies/gents. It's time for a new challenge. Post your starting weight (SW), current weight (CW) and goal weight (GW). Post as often as you'd like. The first person to reach their 5 LB Goal Weight wins and gets to start the next thread for the next 5 LB Challenge. Good Luck Everyone!

SW- 172.2
GW- 167.2


I can't believe that my new 5LB goal weight is actually in the 160's. I can't remember weighing in the 160's since about 10 years ago when I was in the Army. I really really don't know what I'd do without this message-board and all you wonderful ladies/gents.

Thank you everyone. I really appreciate all the compliments. These challenges really keep me motivated and keep me going. They're not too long and not too short, they're just the right amount of time to keep me interested.

Lori & LB- Both of your stories and journeys are really inspiring.
Kofarg- Congrats on the new baby!
Mello- Good luck on your first challenge, you'll love these.
AP90- Let's go 180's!

I don't know about you cherbear, but I had a terrible diet when I was enlisted. Burger King, pizza, ramen, mac n cheese, and chow hall food...top all that w/at least a few beers a day and waaaaaaaay to many every Friday night and I still was never worried about gaining weight.

I just hate getting older and having my metabolism slow down.

Gw:174

Gained some weight cause i did not hit the gym at all last week and made plenty bad food choices so i plan to be at 174 relatively quickly by hitting the gym this whole week. Maybe it was the alcohol i had over the weekend thats sitting in my belly lol

Last year, I lost 60 pounds, then I started a binge that lasted 6 months and gained back 50 pounds . I'm back on track since march and I really hope this time I'll do better.

Good luck, chicks!

Bleugh - up a couple of pounds from ticker.

But my body fat % is coming down so maybe it's muscle - I have ramped up my running this week. Been in recovery from a calf muscle injury for a couple of months so got a bit flabby.
