August Weight Loss Challenge

  • Let's enjoy all the healthy first fruits of harvest while pursuing our August weight loss goals.

    Join the August Weight Loss Challenge to set your goal, track it, and meet it -- with the help of a supportive and encouraging group. All the goals will be compiled into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

    This thread is for weight loss goals. For your exercise goals, check out our sister thread: August Exercise Challenge
