October Weight Loss Challenge
Fall is here, so let's watch the pounds fall off!! ;)

The rules of this thread are simple. We are here to provide each other some accountability along the path to weight loss. So, you just set your weight loss related goal(s) and it gets added to a goal list. When you reach your goal, it gets turned Red. We have a sister thread for exercise related goals. Here's the link: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/chic...challenge.html . We love to hear about your success, as well as your challenges throughout the month. We're here to support and encourage each other to be our best. So, let's get started!

I'm shooting for 10 again, bringing me down to 223. Here's hoping I can do it this month.
Also would like to be sure I'm logging my food every day. Even those "taste tests" when I am cooking.

Ms Perception 09-30-2010 09:33 PM

My goal is to lose 5 lbs and not eat within 2 hours of bedtime. Go October!!

Newshinyme 09-30-2010 10:27 PM

For this month my goal will be to make an eating plan for each week and stick to it, stay accountable on the thread. Lose 5 lbs.

mystical 09-30-2010 11:32 PM

I don't know what to set as my goal at since I have never reached a weightloss goal makes me nervous to set one again LOL, so here goes.

6lbs for October

Marniadec 09-30-2010 11:45 PM

Uhm, hi! Can I join? I only maintained during the summer and even though I've been pretending to be back on track for the past two weeks, I've been lying.;p I really, really need a kick in the butt!

So, here goes: My goal is to lose 10 pounds and complete C25K.

CardboardCutoutCat 10-01-2010 02:37 AM

susiemartin 10-01-2010 08:17 AM

Let's Go!
Count me in :carrot:

My goal is daily weighing & to lose 10lbs.
I chose a bigger weight loss this month because I think I'm still holding mucho water from my September eating adventures :D

SW: 228.6

Here's to a wonderful October!

TERAPET 10-01-2010 10:31 AM

New Month, New Goal. :carrot: I am aiming to hit a new decade this month so my goal is to get to 139. That would be so exciting.

2Bees 10-01-2010 10:57 AM

Ok I was so pleased to do the September exercise challenge-it was a really motivational tool-that I will try this. I am pretty steadily losing a pound a week on the Sonoma plan but I will try for a 5 lb goal in October. That will put me at 199 First time below 200 in 10 years.

I usually only record weight once a week so I will start with Sunday the 3rd and record 5 Sundays. MY exercise goal for the month is 50 miles plus some video exercise.

layddi 10-01-2010 11:00 AM

Count me in for 10 pounds this month!

julie99s 10-01-2010 11:39 AM

Guys! A nsv for me! I am sick and just lounging around, and I noticed my arms... There's definition! I keep looking over and stroking my upper arms. I am such a dork. Pretty fascinating though consindering I didn't lose hardly anything last month.

I wish I was up for working out now.

fld20 10-01-2010 11:51 AM

Can I joinstarting back up not sure of my start weight . I've got to go get a scale today but I'll aim for 5lbs

dcapulet 10-01-2010 11:55 AM

September was a bust for me- so October is it! I hope to lose 5lbs.

Newshinyme 10-01-2010 01:04 PM

Good morning everyone!
Glad to see you here. :welcome: to all of our new members.

My goal for today will be to plan out for the weekend, I have a few social gatherings and there will be plenty of temptation and eating out, so I must be ready.

mystical: I try not to set goals that are too specific in the number of lbs to lose since there is too much variation. Instead I try to focus on things I can actually control like staying within my calories and eating OP.

julie: That's awesome! Congrats on the muscles :)

terapet: The new decade is so close! Can't wait to see you there.

raznt 10-01-2010 01:09 PM

my goal is to stay on plan and drop a minimum of 10 lbs and do 6 days of exercise per week.

My Michelle 10-01-2010 04:44 PM

October is going to be good for us all, I can feel it! :carrot:

My goals: Eat totally clean, work out 4 times per week, and lose 8 pounds. I thought it would be terrifically hard to go last month with no treats, but it didn't turn out that way. It actually meant no mind games with myself. So I want to do it again this month!

9/30 Start Weight: 166.4

ma26 10-01-2010 05:01 PM

My goal is 161.4 that's ten pounds from this mornings weight in.

susiemartin 10-02-2010 07:48 AM

Check In Time

Yesterday was pretty good - almost 100% OP. Got to licking some of the cream cheese filling for my husband's birthday cake :devil:
Wasn't too bad though, manage to drop a little for this morning's weigh in.

Planning a 100% OP day today.
Hope your day is a good one!

starbrite 10-02-2010 08:02 AM

Hi - Can I join in ? I'd like to lose 10 lbs - keeps me on track then for my Christmas challenge :)

NightAngel26 10-02-2010 08:17 AM

Hello all!
Well, September kicked my butt! I lost nothing after posting....well 1 lb after I posted my goal for a level 235!! Argh! Sry I didn't post results....goal not met.

My goal for this month *drum roll please...* a whopping 15lbs! I've done it before but it takes massive amounts of stick to it and a well behaved exercise plan. Wish me luck! so, to get on track for my New Years resolution 15 is necessary.

That will put me at 220lbs. :devil:

My Michelle 10-02-2010 09:22 AM

Welcome Starbrite! Your progress is amazing!

Nightangel, that is a tough goal, we'll be here to support you!

MSperception - Good luck tomorrow!!!! I look forward to your race report!

luckymommy 10-02-2010 10:27 AM

I hope I can still join! I had a huge binge last night but before that binge, my weight was 188lbs. I'd like to weigh in at 178 by November 1, so 10 lbs. :)

TERAPET 10-02-2010 12:43 PM

Welcome luckymommy!

Today is going to be a tough one. We are hosting a pot luck dinner party with lots of goodies. I am going to have to be very diligent not to eat too much. "Cheat meals" are not part of my plan. I simply cannot manage to hoard calories. I need to stay within a daily limit period. (Hopefully this "self talk" is going to work!)

Marniadec 10-02-2010 03:23 PM

Hi everyone!

I had a great day yesterday. I stayed within my limits in everything, I had salad with both lunch and dinner and I had fruit for snacks!:carrot: Today I've gotten lazy, though. I've been up for 4 hours and I can't get off my butt and make cereal, ffs! Good thing I managed to do the C25K, clean the bathroom and make coffee first!:p

Ms Perception 10-02-2010 10:31 PM

Hi all! I'll repost the goal list in the next day or 2 to add the new joiners. I'm short of time today and desperately need to get to bed for the race tomorrow!

Keep up the good choices and healthy living!!

My Michelle 10-03-2010 06:32 AM

Good luck this morning, MsPerception! Have a great race!

susiemartin 10-03-2010 07:57 AM

Check In Time
Ms. P - All the best to you this morning.

Yesterday wasn't 100% OP - could have been better.
Ate too many crackers, bananas & had a piece of pumpkin roll :devil: At least I didn't get into the pizza or the made from scratch German Chocolate cake
that my MIL sent over for my husband's B'day :celebrate:

Planning for a better day today.
Hope your day is a good one too!

julie99s 10-03-2010 10:48 AM

I bombed last night. I was hungry from not eating a whole lot yesterday and at about 1030 last night, I had leftover meatloaf and mashed potatoes.


I'm going to have to be careful today too because the neighbors are helping DH re-roof the garage and we are supplying chicken and the fixin's and beer (they're not drinking while roofing, lol). So I think I'll stick to the chicken and have myself some salad and fruit. I despise the taste of beer, so no problem avoiding that one!

Weighed in this morning. 232. So I'm down 4 from a week ago (1 lb since the Oct challenge began). :carrot:

TERAPET 10-03-2010 10:58 AM

Good for you susiemartin.

I did not exactly stick to my plan yesterday and today is another dinner party. I am in full charge of the menu this time so it should not be quite as ridiculously bad as yesterday's indulgence.

MsPerception-I can't wait to hear about the race.

julie99s-Wow 4 pounds! Awesome.

RevampingSoul 10-03-2010 11:10 AM

I would like to lose 10lbs in October, drink 8 8oz water daily.

Newshinyme 10-03-2010 02:00 PM

Yesterday was so-so for me. Ate very little during the day (not on purpose) but then ended up with drinks and chips :(

I am starting to consider abolishing weekends altogether haha.

Ms.P. Let us know how the marathon went. I am so impressed by how far you've come :)

AngelD 10-03-2010 04:01 PM

Is there still time to join? My attempt to start on my own two weeks ago was killed by a cold so I'm ready to go again. I'd like to lose 10 pounds.

Marniadec 10-03-2010 05:11 PM

I had another great day and I lost two pounds! I am two pounds away from my second goal and the first degree of obesity!

annputation 10-03-2010 09:53 PM

I'm down for 10lbs this months as well!!

LouisaH 10-04-2010 12:18 AM

Hey Chicklets! I'm back from my vacation and have to say, I ate pretty much whatever I wanted, and the sugar ogre and carb monster have taken up residence in my blood stream. I am apparently getting an unexpected visit from TOM again, so I'm hoping he will take the beasts with him when he goes. My scales were reading 154 when I left for vacation the morning of the 22nd, and I was fearing I might see the 160s again, for all I've eaten and drunk. I stepped on tonight, knowing that I always weigh more at night, and was pretty surprised (and elated) to see 154.8. We'll see what tomorrow says, and I will post my starting weight then, but I am dying to reach 147 this month.

MsP: We're dying here. How'd you do?

I'm looking forward to a decent night's sleep in my own bed, and getting back to the routine of eating and checking in here regularly.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 10:44 AM.
