Pass the stuffing challenge Starts oct 28
This challenge is going to start Monday October 28. This will give us 30 days to lose what we want before thanksgiving. Surprise those relatives with the new you!

If you were in the Fall Challenge than you know how it goes.

Here are the basics. Give your weight at starting and your goal weight. If you want to wait right before the challenge that's fine. If you were on the fall challenge then we can use your weight at the end of the challenge.
You weigh on whatever day you choose and post at least once a week.

Hope to see you there!:carrot:

I'm in. I hope to say goodbye to the 220's. I would like to be down 8 by Thanksgiving.

cleancowgirl 10-17-2013 09:24 PM

Awesome susan!

Mickie22 10-22-2013 01:27 PM

This is cool! I want to join! So I'm 245 now, I want to be 235 by Thanksgiving! Not sure if thats too much or too little.


Nov 5: I am 236.5 pounds now! .5 from goal and still far from thanksgiving so I'm going to go ahead and change my goal to 230! Wooo!

cleancowgirl 10-23-2013 08:46 AM

Mickie your goal is up to you. Give it a shot and if you find it you need to change your goal you always can.

Only Believe 10-23-2013 01:26 PM

I want to join. I think this challenge will be exactly what I need. I will be weighing in daily and working to stay on track every single day up to Thanksgiving. I will be seeing people on Thanksgiving day who haven't seen me in person in months I want to get as much as I can off for that day.
Instead of starting the 28th though I want to start it tomorrow. I would start today but I don't have today's weigh in info.. I haven't been on track with my eating in days. I overeat just enough to keep me from dropping more weight. I've been sort of stuck around the same numbers a couple of weeks or so now.

So here I go.. I want to stay on track as many days as I can up until Thanksgiving day. I will log in my weight and exercise daily. I won't bother listing all my foods but I will put how that went too.
I hope you don't mind me doing this. I found your challenge would work perfect for what I need to do to stay accountable. I will think of a goal weight when I find out my weight in the morning. edited to add that my ticker and profile weights are wrong. I know I'm probably a pound or two higher now. is this ok? I can also weigh in weekly if you do a spreadsheet or something.
SW: 235
GW: 223
Oct 24-235 lbs exercise was 20 minute Jog and 10 minutes on Elliptical eating was great!:yes:
Oct 25-233 lbs exercise was 20 min. Jog and then later a 10 min jog. Eating was great!
Oct 26-231.2 20 min Jog I think ate a little too much in the evening.
Oct 28-334.2 so far 20 min Jog
Oct 29-234 Only 10 min Jog
Oct 30-234 Had a good day. No jogging though but went to clean my parents house. Got plenty of exercise there LOL
Oct 31-232.8 20 min jog/run then another 20 min jog/run
Nov 01-233

cleancowgirl 10-23-2013 05:05 PM

Sounds good. You can start tomorrow if you like. I think I will be starting Saturday. We are finishing up the fall challenge on that day and this one can start then for me since it is my normal weigh day. You post as often as you want about anything, this is your challenge and support thread for thanksgiving.
Just think how awesome you will look!

therecoveringfatchic 10-23-2013 05:48 PM

I'm going to jump in here.... thank you cleancowgirl...

I have been doing well but want to keep on that track. I will be seeing several people I have not seen since May and I would love to surprise them. I know they have heard me talking of it and seen some pictures but it's so different in person! I am going to start on Monday which just happens to be my official weigh in day! I usually weigh in every two weeks but, I think I will weigh in once a week for the challenge. Yay! Looking forward to this!

My Goal: Lose 10 Pounds

10/28 (Start): 282.4
11/4: 277.9
11/11: 279.2 - I need to drink more water. I have been very dehydrated and I think I am retaining a lot of water. Still the wrong way to go to meet my goal!
11/18: 277
11/25: 274.6
11/28 (Final): 272.8

Total Loss: 9.6 Oh so close!!

Only Believe 10-24-2013 08:20 AM

Good morning!
I was so happy to see 235 on this morning's weigh in. That's 60 lbs lost since the end of May. I will be busy this morning but I'm planning on doing great today with eating and exercise. I usually set 10 lb monthly goals.. and started to set that for my goal here.. but I think I'm going to 12 lbs! I will check back in later on today..

I am going to start a little early. Thanksgiving is on a Thurs so I thought I would start on a Thurs too. I am 226 today and at the end of this challenge I hope to be at least at 218.
During this time I really want to focus on spending more time on my treadmill. I have been doing 1.5 miles for a while and today I just bumped that up to 2 miles a day. I want to get up to 3 miles by Thanksgiving too.
And I should be able to get a ticker before then too!!!!

Good luck everyone :) We CAN do this!!

miatutu 10-24-2013 07:18 PM

Hi everyone. I am jumping back on the wagon and would love to join you all. I will be starting Monday. My b day is this weekend and I know I probably wont stay on plan. I want to lose 10 pounds, stay in my calories range and exercise everyday. Will update Monday morning with my weight.

I was thrilled to see 233 this morning. That's a 2 lb drop from yesterday. I think eating right for 2 days is dropping some water weight. I will take it and run with it. LOL

I had another great day. Exercise was 20 min jog and then later a 10 min jog. I did great with eating too.

cleancowgirl 10-26-2013 09:48 AM

Okay I am starting today! I was hoping to be another pound down but it is just very slow right now.
Starting at 220.0 and goal 210- I am going to go for 10 pounds which might be pushing it but that's what I am shooting for!

Challenge GW: 180

I was hoping to have hit 180 by Halloween but here we are and i've still got some work to do. This month's obstacles are my birthday, anniversary, Thanksgiving and overall motivation needing a butt kick. I'm up for the challenge!

cleancowgirl 10-27-2013 01:02 PM

You can do it Zoe!

justmary 10-27-2013 09:40 PM

I would like to join your challenge for the motivation and encouragement. I haven't posted around here in a very long time. I've been around 305 for a long time but in the last week I've already lost 11 pounds. Amazing how you can start losing once you don't have much to eat. :) But the first of the month is soon so I'll be ok.

So I'm starting the challenge at 294. It's probably been 20 years since I've been below 300 so I am really psyched! I would like to reach 275 by Thanksgiving.

I want to join
Hi, I'm 194 pounds and getting bigger. Damn this is really freaking me out because I can't believe that I've allowed myself to get to this size. Unbelievable. Anyway I'd like to start this challenge tomorrow. It's Monday here already in New Zealand so I'll be starting in the morning on Tuesday.
My goal weight is to lose 44 pounds, but I'll be happy just to lose 10 pounds by the end of the 30 days. I don't know how to use the measurement thingee. So I'll just pop in once a week with my results. Thanks again.

Ill be weighing daily I hope that's ok.

cleancowgirl 10-28-2013 03:14 PM

Welcome all new members and our fall challenge members. You can weigh in when you like. If you want to weigh daily that is fine as long as we have a weekly weight at some point. I have a spread sheet I keep track and will just post the 3 biggest losers every week. Good luck everyone! We can do this!

Only Believe 10-28-2013 03:45 PM

I'm up in weight today. I did over eat yesterday. Most should be water weight but we shall see. I hope to get it back off really quickly.

Just wanted to check in. Getting ready to make some dinner, either eggs or salmon? Then I will hop on the treadmill for 2 miles while I listen to my daughter practice reading (she in in K.) Hope you all have a good day :)
I will post my weekly weight but my scales suck. I really just want to fit in to a pair of Old Navy pants that I have had forever. I can button them but I don't think I could sit down in them with out busting out the button or splitting the rear end out LOL!!
