Exclamation It's Gotta Come Off 5-week Challenge!

Ok, its Monday morning (well, not yet, but this is for the morning ) and Im ready to start. Here are my thoughts...

1. Post your progress here every day, thats why we are a wonderful support group!

2. Weekly weigh in, I'll start this morning and post my "beginning of the challenge weight"

3. State your weight loss goal for the end of the 5 week challenge.

4. Every week, pick a challenge. Something you have trouble with and need to focus on. Keep up that same habit the second and remaining weeks, but pick another challenge to start the second week etc etc. By the end of the 5 weeks, we will have hopefully tackled 5 struggles, overcame them, and consider them, little blips in the past.

Good Luck everyone!!
Robin

Hi Robin,

You're not in this alone. I started low carbing again and this is just what I need, a challenge.

For my first week-stay under 20 carbs and drink at least 64 ozs of water a day.

Weight lost goal for first week: 5+lbs

I know I can do this, I've been back and forth between low fat and low carb diets for the last couple of weeks and on the low fat diet I'm not lossing a thing. I've been maintaining for weeks and I'm tired of that. So I'll check in every morning and once late afternoon.

Thanks for this board!

Kimbo

Ok, I'm in! This will be up....end of August?

Starting weight - 234. Ooooooh, that hurts to say outloud. I completely lost it in May and June and crept up to 242. Hey Linda, that was my turning point!

Goal weight at the end of 5 weeks: 219. That is 219 OR BUST. I have all the determination in the world right now, and I NEED to make this goal. I WANT IT!! 3 pounds a week is attainable!

Challenge this week: to do good on water every day, and cut my diet drinks and decaf back drastically.


I'm ready for this! I better stop now before I start sounding like a pre-show wrestler!!

Angry Count Me In !!!

Starting Weight ~ Hmmm, I honestly don't own a scale, so, I'll see if DIL has one and will find out today.

Goal Weight ~ I'm going to aim for the conservative loss of 2 lbs. a week. I'm down to the last 10-20 lbs to come off so this should be realistic for me.

Weekly Challenge ~ Is definately the "E" word. My challenge is to find the time to get to the gym. Actually a thought just hit me. I've been getting up at 5:00 a.m. to set up the money bag for early pick up, so, I could go ahead and shower, etc., and be ready for the gym by the time I get everyone else fed and out the door. Ok, that's my weekly challenge beginning tomorrow!

Also, I will watch my portions during RM. I've been a bit sloppy with this lately.

Okay, next?

Peachie ~ you snuck in on me! Alot of good can be done these next two weeks hon. And you'll feel sooooo much better!

Welcome Kimbo!

I am game! Weight at 196, hope to be 180 at the end of august. My challenge to drink more water and get out and move more!!!! Have to get cortisone shot in my ankle, so that has made it hard to walk, dang arthritis (don't have an appt with the specialist till Jan, hopefully by then my weight will be down enough that I won't need one). I will not give in! Power to the low carbers!

Hi Everybody!!
Great thread Robin--just what I need since I seem to have fallen off every wagon we own since we came back from Chicago.

I will weigh myself when I get off of here--that will be depressing!

My goal for this week is to make sure that I do my Body Flex at least once a day for the rest of week. We leave on vacation on Saturday so I NEED to stay focused.

Long term goals:
1. Keep up the Body Flexing to keep losing inches.
2. Lose at least 8 lbs. in the 5 weeks.
3. Cut back on the Merlot.
4. Drink more water.

Hello everyone!!

It's been busy around here this morning and that's a good thing! So far the day is going very well. No food crazings about to drive me crazy yet! But there is tomorrow, days 3 & 4 are my hardest days so if I'm talking crazy by Wednesday, you'll know why!.

Right now I'm working a F/T & P/T job. I'm a exercise fanatic but so far, I'm to tired to do anything. I guess, I'll start working out at lunch time. This will be the best time for me know. I use to get up at 4:30A and be at the gym by 5:15 but after 2 weeks of a P/T job, that has put a stop to that, I'm stumbling around the office like a drunk woman.

Anyway, it's good to see so many interested!

Does anyone do the Atkins or any low carb shakes/bars? How do they taste and can you recommend any?

OHHHHH GROAN....WEEP......WAIL....all my sins have come home to roost! Stepped on the scale this morning and CLUNK dead on 290. That's 20 lb I've gained in the past year. 20 lb back of the 30 I'd lost 2 years ago on WW. And 10 of those pounds have come on in the past two weeks. If I wasn't so fat I'd kick myself in the backside!
Soooooo.....my five week goal is to lose those last 10 pounds. I know I can do it especially as it's new (well sorta new) flab. Obviously burying my head in the sand about my overeating hasn't stopped the blub from sneaking back on. I guess I was hoping that if I pretended that I wasn't out of control that the pounds wouldn't find me. HAR HAR!

If those 10 lb come off faster than I think they will, I will try for another 5 before the end of August.

Hope no one minds if I join in.

I just started atkins two weeks ago. It's been working pretty well for me so far. I'm down 10.5 pounds so far.

My goal for the next 5 weeks is to lose another 15 pounds.

This weeks challenge is to get 30 minutes of exercise daily.

Today's weight: 189.5

200/189.5/135
