OK, I'm in.

I'm not sure what I will be able to accomplish, but I will set my goal at 10 pounds. That commits me to lose not quite 2 pounds each week. That should be doable for me if I stay OP for the whole time. I'd really like to be down to 130, but even I know that is not possible in the time that I have available. LOL

Starting Weight: 142.5 (as of 02/01/02)
Goal Weight: 132.5
Lbs to Goal: 10 lbs

Well, here it is. Valentine's Day already. I started out on this challenge great and had a rough time in the middle. This week has been a bad week for following the weight loss program, but a good week for weight loss. It also helped to reach my goal, but I don't feel very good about it.

Starting Weight: 142.5 (as of 02/01/02)
Present Weight: 131.0
Goal Weight: 132.5
Lbs to Goal: -1.5 lbs

Here's the start:

January 02: 142.5 (Starting Weight)
January 07: 140.0 (2.5 pounds lost) Total Lost: 2.5
January 14: 137.75 (2.25 pounds lost) Total Lost: 4.75
January 21: 135.0 (2.75 pounds lost) Total Lost: 7.5
January 28: 133.5 (1.5 pounds lost) Total Lost: 9.0
February 04: 134.75 (1.25 pounds gained) Total Lost: 7.75
February 11: 135.75 (1.0 pound gained) Total Lost: 6.75
February 14: 131.0 (4.75 pounds lost) Total Lost: 11.5 pounds

Good Luck to everyone who joins the challenge.

Talking Me too, me too!

Hi Everyone!

So you know me, I'm the bad kid when it comes to this weight loss. I'm trying, I'm trying!!!

I want to be 142 for Valentine's Day because it's 4 days before my 1st Anniversary with my BF. LOL. That's about 7-8 pound, depending on how I weigh in for the day! ACK!

154/151.5-152/142 by Valentine's Day

Gotta get my butt to the gym then!!!

HI guys,
I meant to get in this when CJ started it the beginning of the month and aim for a 8 lb weight loss. But I went back to my weight loss and have already lost 3.4 LBs since the 4th of January when she started this thread. So I guess I am on my way so I just have to lose another 4.6 LBS. So I guess I will just try to lose some more weight, whatever I can in the next 2 weeks, which is all we have left. So if I can lose a few more pounds I will be happy.

Anyone else? It is never too late.

Love you, Sharon

Man oh man!!! I was reading this thread about how everyone was going to lose 10 lbs. or 6 lbs. and I'm thinking "But it's only 2 weeks to Valentines Day!! How are they going to do that!?!?!"

Boy, 10 lbs. in 2 weeks sounds good to me!!! What's the secret to that!?!? Then I realized this thread was started a while ago. Bummer.

OK, 2 weeks. I'm thinking ... well, 2 lbs. maybe? A pound a week is fair.

Wait! I know! I want to reach my 40-lb. mark by Valentines week weigh-in (Sat. Feb. 16)! So that'll be 2.2 lbs. Oooh, so close .....
