I'm going for 30 lbs as well! This will get me into the 100s which I haven't been in over 6 years!!! Such a crucial time cause I always seem to fail when I hit the 2 teens so I can always use more support and motivation!

I'm going to keep it simple - 15 lbs in 14 weeks. Summer is such a hard time for me to stay on plan. Maybe this will help to get me back on track and keep me there!

I would like to join... My birthday is September 4th and I want to reach 142 by then. So this is the perfect challenge.

I will be posting my weigh-ins on Thursday as well.

I usually focus on monthly goals, but it couldn't hurt to have the big picture in mind. Considering how slowly I have been losing weight this year, with lots of stops and starts, I think I will go for 10 lbs lost by Labor Day. This will put me at 145 lbs. Having the kids at home and a vacation in August will be a challenge to staying on track!

Good luck to us all!

Look at that!!! How very cool!! Excited we'll be able to continue on in this together! They say you may grow a little when you lose weight, so maybe I'll hit 5'3" too!! LOL

Welcome to the party everyone!!

I am glad that I found this. I am in a July 4th challenge, and I have done terrible. So this will be a fresh start for me.

SW 256.6
CW 256.6
GW 241

My goal is 15 pounds. I'm a very slow loser.

Now I have another reason to be in this challenge. I just found out about a major social event that my family is invited to at the end of the summer. It's going to be a big family reunion. The last time I saw most of the people attending I was in the 190s. The truth is, I had hoped to be at my goal weight the next time we all got together. There is no way I will get to 130lbs by August. For some reason, I feel really nervous about my weight and losing more in time for this event. I can't explain it....I just felt so bad about myself the last time I saw everybody. I felt like some relatives treated me differently than they had when I was thin. They always used to compliment me and praise my appearance, and it was obvious that they didn't like the way I looked when I was heavier. I became invisible and ignored, and the thinner/prettier relatives got all of the positive attention.

I really don't know how to feel about them anymore. I don't know if their treatment of me at my high weight is simply my perception, but not reality? I was very sensitive about my weight and appearance. However, I still feel stung, and I think I will feel kind of pissed if suddenly they start complimenting and paying attention to me again. Where were they when I really needed the compliments and self-esteem boosts? I don't need it from them anymore. I am my own cheerleader now.

jazzypeggy!

Go aasshhlleeyy!! Off and running. Sounds like a great goal... that's like me, I am a Tuesday weigh-inner, so my final will be the day after Labor Day.

guacamole I totally understand your wanting to be at your best for the get together, especially if you don't feel you were the last time. I love your last line about being your own cheerleader!!! So true and I think that's a big thing to realize to succeed with weightloss goals!! I am guessing your feelings about the last event are valid with the way they treated you, and probably a little of your own perception as well. I would be upset about it too.
I have always been heavy, since I was a young kid, sometimes heavier than other times. LOL I have been thinking a lot lately about how things will be different when I reach my goal weight... it will be interesting to see how the people in my life, both heavy and thin, change around me. Kind of an experiment on human behavior. LOL
Lots of time until August just keep doing what you're doing and keep cheering yourself on, reunion or no reunion. You've already come a long way since the 190's!

YAY!!! I am so happy I found a challenge about to start that I can join in from the very beginning!! My goal will be 25 pounds total loss (hopefully more!!!!) But I am going to weigh in on Tuesday for the first time since my scale is the shipping scale at work and Monday I will be by the pool at home!!! And since our weigh in days will be Mondays, it will only motivate me to keep on track with eating right and exercising on the weekend!!!

DaugT - Thanks for the kind words! It is true that losing or gaining weight gives insight into human interaction and reaction!

I weighed in today at 153, so I am down 2 pounds for the week! Good luck, everyone!
