My tracker is not up to date, I was off the wagon and I gained 5 lbs. and I'm planning to lose them again ASAP, 4 lbs. to go.

Default Start Day: Aug 16. Here we go!

Here we are, ladies. Let's accomplish this together. I plan on posting any tips I find successful, as well as my weight updates.

Weight: 185 (down a lb from yesterday!)
Thanksgiving Goal: 149 (my college weight)
= 36 lb loss / 2.5 lbs per week

A couple of tips I've found to work:
- Nestle Carb Select hot chocolate in the evening (25 cals)
- power pops (lolipops which contain hoodia and help curb appetite, supposedly. mainly they keep my mouth busy. 24 cals and can be bought on ebay. Just search for "power pops". I cut the stick off and pop it in my mouth so that my 2 year old won't ask for one.

To do this I plan to at least 4days of exercise a week, and I also plan on concentrating my eating to just whole foods and correct portions. Im also going to check in here everyday to help keep me motivated and accountable.
Good Luck Ladies!!

Wow, SugarRox. You've come a long way! How long did it take you to lose the 66 lbs? Right now you are exactly where I want to be after this challenge - 149. Do you mind if I ask: what size are you at that weight? I'm thinking at 5'6 I would be wearing size 8 or 10, but who knows. Sizes run differently, I know.

Great job!

Default I'll try the challenge too

I joined the web-site a while back but I haven't been very active. I would like to have some motivation for a Thanksgiving loss goal. I am doing cardio kickboxing three times a week and eating between 1000 ann 1200 calories a day. Some say that my caloiries are too few and my body will not lose as fast. Does anyone have any insight on that?

Anyway I think I am currently around 200lbs so I would like to hit 180 for my Thanksgiving goal. I'll be going back to WW weigh ins starting in September so I'll be able to confirm my weights weekly starting then. I'm having some work problems and relationship problems right now which are making me weaken on eating right. Hopefully this goal will help me focus away from the things I can't change and onto what I can.

Its taken about 2-3 years to get where I am today. Im 5'4, I started at a size 16 and Im currently a size 8. Im only 18, soon to be 19 (Sept 26.) my weightloss was slow (but thats good right?) I would say mainly because I was still in school, and I had several things to focus on and not enough time in the day. Im still not comfortable with my weight at all, hopefully this challenge will help me get my butt in gear so I can finally reach my goal.

Our goals and current weight are are so similar! Our approach as well. I'll be interested in tracking how you do! Good luck!

Default Tracking our Weight Loss

Does anyone object to me posting and updating a list of everyone, their goals and their progress on a weekly basis?

Sometimes I join these groups and I feel like I post and no one reads it, and it makes it easier to just drop out of the challenge or thread.

I can make a list and post it to this thread with Subject: Group Goals.
Each week the updated post will have the subject Group Progress and have the amount of weight lost for each person.

Any objections to doing this?

Thanks!
