Road to summer Memorial Day Challenge!
Today marks exactly 19 weeks until Memorial weekend - at the start of summer! I know I can't wait!

Feel free to join right in! Your goals can be anything - weight related, size, exercise - whatever!

I'm starting at about 260lbs size 2x/18, and over the next five months, want to lose 40 lbs, and/or be a size 14, whichever is smaller :)

I want this to be the best summer ever!

We're starting our summer at the beach on Memorial Day weekend, and this challenge is perfect!

I'm starting today at 237lbs, size 20. I want to be right at or below 200lbs in 19 weeks. That's 2lbs a week.

I want to be able to buy a bathing suit for this trip - the first suit in years and years.

Weigh in 1/16: 234 (down 4lbs)

1/23: 234
1/30: 233
2/6: 230
2/13: 231
2/20: 228
2/27: 228
3/6: 225
3/13: 227
3/20: 226

Nice work Mrs. C! We'll all cheer one another one into a new body for summer :)

Hi Bunny -

Ah the beach! Just thinking about it makes me tingle! Sounds like a good goal - bathing suit shopping will get me working out! Good luck!

I would love to join!

My goal is to lose 40lbs by Memorial Day.

My starting weight is 196.2

dcapulet 01-15-2011 02:28 PM

Awesome! Welcome, envelope!

dcapulet 01-16-2011 08:51 AM

Official Sunday weigh in - 258.6! So 6 lbs gone, officially in the 250's and hopefully moving down :)

Next stop - 240's!

I would love to join! Have my pom poms ready to cheer everyone on and keep myself in check.

I started the year off at 172, am currently down to about 165.5. By Memorial Day I want to have reached 140-145 and be ready for my June 5K with my aunt.
I want to look forward to swimsuit shopping this year!

dcapulet 01-16-2011 04:22 PM

Welcome peaches!

Ooooh, shopping! Going to to be my new favorite activity - someday :)

I'd love to join!

I'm not going to try for a weight goal since that never seems to work for me. I am going to move 360 miles.

Good luck to everyone!

dcapulet 01-16-2011 06:38 PM

hi c laura, welcome!

Moving 360 miles - is that walking, running, or something else?

Sounds like a great goal :) Good luck!

c_laura 01-16-2011 07:01 PM

Thanks dcapulet!

I'm starting out walking but I'm hoping for running/jogging in the springtime...

I would love to join! I started my journey last memorial day and have lost 45 lbs since then (i technically lost almost 60 but feel off plan and gained some back :( ) So memorial day will mark my one year anniversary since I started all of this! My starting weight was 260 and now i am 217. I would love to be 190 by april 26th (my anniversary) and 180 by Memorial Day :) My overall goal when i started this was to be 160 by memorial day (lose100 lbs in 1 year) but thats not going to happen and thats ok! Im not going to give up even tho i horribly fell off plan. Tomorrow is a new day and Now I have you guys to check in with :) :)

dcapulet 01-16-2011 08:20 PM

c laura - doing couch to 5k, or your own thing? I was thinking about transitioning to walk/run again...

welcome monster! congrats on your previous loss- you're already accomplished so much, and way to not give up :) we're right here for you :cheer:

So I ate dinner, workouts done for the day, now time to relax and get ready for work. I'm going to bring some good snacks so I don't overeat or get too hungry for the morning. Hopefully it will be a quiet night!

I know I'm jumping in a few days late but I would love to join this challenge. My ideal goal for Memorial Day would be to weigh 130lbs. My starting weight as of today is 142.2. This puts me past my original ultimate goal, but I feel like 130lbs may be the perfect weight for me.

How often are we reporting our results??

dcapulet 01-17-2011 12:01 AM

Hopeful - never too late! Welcome! And congrats on your loss so far :cheer:

I weigh in weekly, on Sunday - you can do the same, or daily, or whatever suits you! Some don't have weight-related goals, so we're just winging it :)

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 12:30 AM.
