I am in! This sounds fun! I atart my senior year a few weeks before so this is good. I weigh in on Mondays. My SW is 247. With my goal being 232 or about a pound a week! What are your plans/goals to help you lose CLAIREBEAR?

This is perfect for me! I start classes on Sept. 26th and I need some accountability. Im brand new to this site and this is exactly the reason I joined so thank you for starting this challenge. My starting weight is 200 and my goal for Sept. 20 is 172, so slightly over 2 lbs per week i think - bit extreme perhaps but it should give me something to push for.

SW: 200
GW: 172

My plans/goals would be to lose between 8-12 pounds a month. Now, this is a bit of an extreme challenge for me but im just setting a goal...and if i dont meet this exact goal, any weight i have lost along the way will be a victory for me =]

I am eating within 1400 calories a day and no more...sometimes just a little less depending on my moood. I'm going to the gym for AT LEAST an hour every single day. and im staying positive! because stress and negativity can actually hinder weight loss.

I am so excited you girls are joining me and we are all in college and starting classes around the same time =]] we will totally be able to push eachother!

So, we will make weigh ins on both sundays and mondays! post your results everyweek and come daily for a boost of confidence and motivation!

What are your girls plans and strategies for losing weight this summer?

Is this challenge only for students? I'm not attending school, but my birthday is September 25th so this challenge is a good time frame for me. =)

I would love to get in into this challenge if you college chicks will let an older chicky join. I just started P90X this week, (at least attempting the workouts - yikes). :tied: Sept 20th will be around my 90 day mark. That would be perfect!

I am also trying to eat clean. I am not following the P90X meal plans because I want to avoid carbs (as much as possible), so follow more of a modified Atkins diet.

I start my sophomore year at college this fall as well. I go back to school August 20th, instead of September, but I'm still up for this challenge! I'm starting level 2 of 30DS, so hopefully I won't gain too much weight in the beginning. I gained a pound after completing level one, but I know it was just muscle/water retention. Good luck, everyone!

of course ANYONE can join =]]] just give me your SW and GW lovely ladies and remember to give us all updates on your weight loss adventures and to weigh in and post on either Sunday or Monday =]]]

I'd love to join! I'll be starting my last year of Grad School in August.

SW: 203.4

I just started Weight Watchers last Friday and signed up for the 3 month online plan. September 20 is right around the end of my first 3 months on WW so it's a perfect date to work towards!

betbabe 06-22-2011 01:33 PM

OK, so I am a recent college grad, (graduate degree), so I feel a bit more like I can fit into the challenge. (I can dream that I am still as young as you gals - hehe.)

I goal may be a bit unrealistic for me, but I can dream. Ideally I would lose about 10 pounds a month.

Thanks for starting the Sept. Challenge. With this support, I actually am beginning to feel like I can do this.

I feel like I've joined a million challenges this week, but this one is PERFECT timing! I tell people I want to reach my goal weight by Halloween (which is also the day before my birthday) but I'd REALLY like to reach it by Oct 1. I'll just say that's my goal weight for this challenge, too... why not get there a week or so earlier? ;)

I'm getting ready for my workout right now and I have a headache, uhg. I think I still have a bit of a cold lingering. But I don't have a really intense workout today, thankfully. I've found I can push through strength training when I'm not feeling well a lot easier than cardio, and I only have a short 20 minutes of that planned before weights, mostly just to warm up and burn a few extra calories. And tomorrow is a rest day, YAY for that.

I'm a little extra hungry today for some reason. I'm staying on track though, this time I WILL stay on plan the whole challenge and not panic (panicking about the chance of losing control almost always equals losing control, I'm so odd).

Anyway, I hope to get to know you girls and help everyone stay motivated while remaining focused myself!

ClaireBear92 06-22-2011 06:04 PM

Yay mayness! great goal to set! and we will definately be here to keep you motivated.

TheBunneh, it sounds like a great day for strength training, i give you props for pushing through the pain and maybe the short amount of exercise will actually help your headache!
