July 21st- +5 This month is not going good
July 28th- -2# Having trouble with fluid should do better next week
August 4th- -2 1/2 Now going in right direction
August 11th- -1# ok down 1/2#
August 18th- turtle still have 2 weeks
August 25th- +3# This has not been a good month. Need a big loss next week to end with a loss.
September- 1st- -3# I did not do good on this one I think I ended up down 1/2# Too much up and downs

Thumbs up

Count me in...I need something to shoot for. I'm not stepping out so for this time. I'll try to meet a committment to lose 1 pound per week. Thanks Christian for starting the new challenge.
July 16.... I'm sorry I haven't been able to write on the board, but my time is very short right now. I didn't even post here last week. I'll at least try and keep up with this challenge.
July 29....Sorry I haven't wrote on the board, I just can't find the time. I'm trying to keep up on the challange board. Aug 11....I didn't lose much this week, but not from the lack of trying. I'll be better next week. Rethinking my plan!!!I reached my goal of losing 10 pounds this week for this dhallenge. I've made it!!!!

July 7.....I lost 3/4 of a pound this week
July 14...I lost 1 3/4 pounds this week...
July 21...I lost 1/4 pounds this week...I've hit a hard place
July 28...I lost 2.50 pounds this week.
Aug 04....I lost 2 pounds this week.
Aug 11....I lost 1/4 pound this week.
Aug 18....I lost 1 1/4 pounds this week.
Aug 25....I lost 2 pounds this week.
Sept 01...I had my first gain since March...grrrrrr....I gained 1/2 pound. Don't know why, was really doing more walking than before. I won't let that get me down, on and more focused for the rest of my journey. At least I met my goal.

Wow this sounds great. I attend Tops on mondays and was just thinking last night of setting a challenge for myself. My starting weight is 235 and my goal weight for this challenge is 220lbs!!!

Weigh In Mondays:
July 4th 233.5, down -1.5
July 11th 233.5, no loss or gain
July 18th 234, up +.5
July 25th 232.75, down -1.25
August 1st no weigh in due to temp health problem
August 8th 230.5, down -2.25
August 15th 232, up +1.5
August 22nd 231.75, down -.75
August 29th 234.5, up +3.25 NOT GOOD
September 5th now weigh in due to holiday

Okay so I did not do so well on this challenge...as of Aug. 29th my total loss since the start was only .5lb. I will do better this next month as I get back into the swing of things!! Congrats to everyone who met their goal and even those who gave it their all. Keep trying!!!

Good Luck Everyone...we can do it!!!!

Smile Count me in!

I met my goal for the 4th...maybe that's a good omen!
I will set a goal for 1 pound per week. I weigh in on Thursdays and will try to post each week. But I'm gone alot, so will post when I'm in town.
Good luck to all of you and remember, don't give up. If you aren't successful one week, try harder the next week!

Hi

My own goal sort of coincides with Labour Day (I know it says Sept. 1st, but a few days isn't that much of a deal), so I thought I'd join.

My goals:
- some loss each week
- to actually be able to see the loss on myself when Labour Day rolls around
- and to reach, or be close to 120 lbs by then (hopefully)
