Lightbulb 20 pound Summer Challenge

There are a full 13 weeks until the start of summer, June 20th, from today. At first I was going to call it "25 pound challenge", but that wouldn't leave much room for slip ups and life in general. So, here is something that's very much possible, for some that's like your goal amount right there and for others (like me!) that's a portion of it.

Who'd like to join in? I'm a novice at this btw

*I won't have my signature for another two weeks or so, so my starting weight (1 pound up from last week) is 182lbs, so my goal is to be at 162 pounds by June 20th.

I'll hop on too! I am just getting started at 199, so my goal for June 20th will be 179- more would be great, but we know how that goes!

Hi SleepyOwl!

I'd like to join too. I'm currently 141 lbs, so my summer goal is 121. That would be great to get there! Right now I am still struggling to lose my first pounds...

I'm down 0.8 this morning. Did 2.39 miles on the elliptical last night on fat burn doing intervals of really fast (for cardio) and slow (focusing on my heart rate and keeping it in the weight loss range)

I weigh daily, but my "official" weigh-in date is Monday. So, I will report my progress based on my Monday weight. Thus far, I am down just over a pound from when I signed up for this challenge. Although that might seem good, my starting weight came after a temporary up, so the down just reversed that. Nevertheless, I'll take what I can get!

SW: 192.00
CW: 190.75 (-1.25)
GW: 172.00

Good luck to all!

Red face Checking in

Good evening everyone,

I'm so sorry for starting off as an absentee host. Welcome one and all I did not expect such a response.

I wish everyone luck in reaching their goals!!! I know for me, even if I'm somewhere around near it, I'd be ecstatic as I've been on a 2 year plateau.

Congratulations on a great start Mama_Angel_2006 and Tuscany. Tuscany I'd say that still means you're headed in the right direction

Hmm, xopeaceandlovexo I'd say whenever everyone decides is best for themselves to weigh in? I'm probably going to stick to once/twice per week, typically Mondays.

As of Monday, my weight was 180.2. So I'm down about 1.8 lbs. Which, is due in large part to the fact that I've started tracking on my fitness pal. I'm someone who began their weightless journey with the weight watchers points plus program, so I never considered my full caloric intake.

I am in, 20 lbs by the beginning of summer. I am starting at 185/186, I do not know yet because I am on vacation this week. I hope to be up maybe a pound or so. I made healthy choices and walked a lot. Let's see, I weigh in on Tuesday.

When I weighed in this morning, it was 180.2. So no change. Which is better than a gain, which I could be looking at if I don't burn off those ribs I had this afternoon First thing tomorrow morning I'll be back at it!
