I'm in!

I will have out-of-country friends coming to visit in August and there will be several social events involving food, so some accountability will be good for me! Currently I am at 293.4. My goal is to weigh 286 (10% off my starting weight) by August 31. That's 7.4 lbs.

Cheers everyone.... we can do it!!

My goal is to follow the plan every single day in August. It starts tomorrow and I am pumped to go 4 weeks completely following the BFC plan.

I am in! Ok, so July was a slow month for me (-4.6 lbs) and I am going on vacation on the 2nd of September so I am going to aim high. I was 192 today so I am going to set a goal for 182. That is 10 lbs which is going to be a lot of work but with the stakes high, I know I can do it!

Also new to this, but I definitely am on board for a challenge! I'm at 275.5 and would like to be at 265 by August 31st. I think it's more than do-able given the amount of weight I have to lose.

It's going to be somewhat tricky because I have jury duty for two more weeks, which has thrown my eating & work-out routine off-course. But hey, this is great real-life practice!!

Good luck everybody!

Okay, here we go!
My eating plan is to only eat out 3 times this month, using menu planning to help stay on track. This may not sound like a big deal but we eat out WAY too much. I'm going to watch my portions, make sure I get all my fruits and veggies and get 64ozs of water in. I will be exercising 5 days a week rotating between running/walk intervals, elliptical and strength training.
For motivation I joined you ( of course), wrote a list of my reasons for losing weight, and have a pic on the fridge. I hope these things help keep me focused.
My SW: 166
GW: 159
goal: lose 7lbs
I was originally going for 6 lbs but I think getting into the 150's would be super sweet so let's make it 7lbs.
Good luck chicks!

Howdy! I'd like to jump in too! I have been totally not paying attention to my body and eating like a piggy most of the summer and of course the scale is showing it. I am going to lose 7 lbs this month. I am going to work out 5 of 7 days each week. I've got some really cute jeans that I need to slim down for before the weather starts turning colder. I enjoy doing my Turbo Jam video, Hip Hop abs, and walking.

Count me in! I'm currently doing the 20 day challenge but that ends on August 13th so I want to jump in here for when that challenge is over.

I was doing really well, and got to 156 last week but I had a horrible weekend and I refuse to step on the scale for a few days because I know I gained some back, I can feel it. I'm going to consider 156 my start weight because I need to re-lose those pounds and will this week.

SW: 156
GW: 143

I'm also starting the 30 day shred today with a friend but I'm also going to do the Brazil Butt Lift in the month of August. So my exercise goal is to complete both 30 day programs, as scheduled. When I complete both programs without skipping a day or cheating I'm going to feel really accomplished so I just have to keep that in mind!

Hi Guys! I'm in as well. I go back to work in 3 weeks ( I'm a teacher) and I really need to get back into the groove. I went to the gym today and did step aerobics and lifted weights. I have some upcoming challenges though (a birthday, my anniversary, and going out of town the weekend with just the hubby- no kids woo hoo). So, I think I will shoot for 6 pounds, but if I lose more that would be most excellent.
Thanks!

Seems like a big jump, but I'm dealing with TOM related gloating right now. Ugh.
