Memorial Day to Labor Day 14-week Summer Challenge!
Hey everyone!!
Who's ready for a working summer??? :D
Some of us that are doing a Memorial Day Challenge have talked about going on through Labor Day. And we'd love to have everyone and anyone join on in!!!

We'll kick start this challenge on Monday, the 28th and go until the week of September 3rd. So post your goals and your starting point, whether you're going for pounds, inches, dress sizes, however you're workin' it! :) Then check in weekly with your progress and to support each other.

Let's see how much we can mold these amazing bodies by the end of summer!

My Goal for this 14 weeks is going to be 25 pounds!

Thought about going for 30, but leaving a little wiggle room as we have, dun dun dun, vacation in August and a weekend away in June! AH!!

So feeling like 25 is attainable and man would I be excited to have 25 more pounds off by September!! :D
This should be the challenge where I move into Onderland! Yeah, baby!
I weigh-in on Tuesdays, so will be back a week from today with my starting weight and off I go.

What's your goal going to be?

Long term goals are the right way to go, but I need short term goals to help keep me on track, so count me in and I am also going to find a July 4th thread for the much needed incentive.
I made my goal in the Memorial Challenge and have learned that these do help a lot.
I have two reasons for joining this one. One is to of course lose the weight, a long with the great support from the other challenge and the other is TMI, but here goes. My counselor and I have worked out a game plan that if my boyfriend does not come around by Labor Day I am to drop out of his life and that will be 275 lbs less around my neck. So count me in.
I am going to go for a full 30 lbs to give me that drive.
Will be back with new starting weight next week.

YEY ladies!! :cp:
So glad to be continuing on as we all shrink away to nothing. ROFL!! ;)

I'm new to it all and was hoping to find a thread that was just starting out like this. I'd love to join in on the MD to LD challenge.

I'm going to go for 25 pounds.

I'm just starting out on my weight loss journey and working on some lifestyle changes and I hope this will be a nice little push for me.

Awesome parachute!! :welcome:

Checking 3FC every day and joining in on these types of things has made a tremendous impact on how I am doing this time, compared to ALL the other attempts at losing! LOL

Glad to have you!

I'm in! I'd like to aim for a 30lb loss. I lost a lot of weight in the past then gained it all back plus some when I switched jobs and am now the heaviest I have ever been. I was previously a zookeeper (very physically demanding) and started having back pains, so now I'm a teacher. My boyfriend and I finally purchased our own house so now I have a workout room and can't wait to use it! I have all summer off to devote to changing my horrible eating habits and have yard work as extra exercise. My summer vacation in July will actually help me as it will be a very active one: going hiking in the Smoky Mountains and white water rafting.

:welcome2: dare 2 dream!!!
I hear yeah, when I started in Feb I was the highest ever ... best thing about that was it really kicked me into gear. So I suppose I am thankful for that in a way! How awesome to have the summer to devote, like a nice running start!

Looking forward to getting to know you over the course of the challenge!!

I am so in! I have been wanting to join a challenge but seems it's too far into all of em since I got committed to this journey I'm on. My only issue is I post from an iPhone and am not sure if I can edit my posts that way, so I'd have to create a new post every week... Not sure if people are ok with that?

Yey, aasshhlleeyy :cp:

definitely okay!! Of the ones I've personally jumped in on we've always made new posts. I think (not sure) the daily threads tend to edit the same post and add on. But posting new every week is great, whatever works for you! I definitely do new posts every week,

aasshhlleeyy 05-22-2012 09:37 PM

Great!:carrot: I am so excited! I weigh everyday but my official weigh in day is Thursday's, so I'll update then.
