Talking August Weight Loss Challenge

This is the monthly thread where we set goals related to weight loss. Is there a habit that you want to break or develop? Or a new strategy you want to take on as an experiment? Or a number that you want to see on the scale?

State your goal here and track it through the month with a supportive group. At the end of the month, listed goals that are achieved get turned RED in celebration.

Our sister thread, http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/chic...challenge.html, is for exercise goals -- we have an Olympics theme going on there -- so head over there for your fitness goals. Join us here for your other weight loss challenges.

My goal is to have ten days in August where the scale reads below 75 kgs. Today's weight is 75.55kgs.

Tabbycat here.

My July goal was 130, and although I landed there a couple of times in the last week, I was a tad over 131 on the last day, so I missed it.

My goal for August is to get to 128 pounds.

My August goal is to average under 1650 calories a day.

This is very do-able as I've been doing it from the beginning, but I'm articulating the goal just to stay on track. The scale has not been moving lately, but I'm using one belt notch in (yay!) so I know my effort is paying off. Still, when that scale doesn't budge, I feel a little frustration and want to make sure I stay consistent through that. Here's hoping meeting my August goal will get me under 220

Here's to a great August!

Thank you for starting this thread, gardenerjoy! I tried my best to keep up with the July thread but I haven't been online as much I as I normally am. I will wrap that thread up just as soon as I get back on my computer.

I've been struggling to stay on plan this summer, so my goal for August is get back into my workout routine as much as possible, to track my food and to get down to 195lbs.

Good luck everyone!

My goal for August is to lose 5 pounds.

And, since this is my weigh-in day - I already have a loss to report! Down 1 pound...

SW= 156
CW= 155
GW= 150

I would REALLY like to get out of the 150's this month, so I will need to step it up!

Good luck everyone!

Today was my first of ten mornings below 75.00 kgs. Just barely below at 74.95, but definitely below! Yay!

Really had an "off the rails" weekend. Went waaaay over calories the last few days. Back on track today, eating good things and drinking lots of water. Focusing on 1600 calories a day this week to try to balance out my numbers. Trying to be kind to my body and just overall kind to myself, not getting knocked off course by my indulgences this weekend.
