Default A 6 week countdown - anyone want to join in?

When I was around these parts many moons ago, we used to have regular, short 'races'. Someone would post one up and keep track of everyones loss for the period.

Anyone taking part logged in once a week and posted their loss (or gain ) and once a week a round up of that weeks stats was posted by the OP!

I haven't seen one around recently, so I thought I'd start one.

I've Got the June bug! ends June 27th

I pledge a whole stone, 14lbs, as I am about to start the GL diet and to use my new Wii personal coach lady, woman, thingy!


Stef: Starting at 220lbs

Oh I'd love to get in on this one, it sounds perfect because I have a big recital coming up on June 23rd and I need motivation during this busy time.

I will shoot for 10-12lbs because my weightloss has really been slowing down recently and I don't want to not meet the goal!

Starting Weight - 168
Goal Weight - 158/156

Today is Sunday, May 17th. I will join the 6-week challenge for 9 pounds. (1.5 lbs a week is huge for me, as I lose weight verrrrrrry slowly even though I stick to plan.) So, by June 27 I will be 253.

SW (May 17) .... 262
CW (May 17) .... 262
GW (June 27).... 253

Yes

Current weight is 252 lb and would love to lose a stone by then (I've been losing 2lb most weeks so think 10-12 lb is more realistic but since everyone else thinks they can lose a stone I may as well try too - would love to be down to 17 stones by the end of June )

-- I am so on this! I wont be starting til Tuesday tho (uni crapola)
I wanna aim for 7lbs? I think that would be a huge achievement, but it's more about going down a dress size and building muscle.


[SIZE="1"]
[COLOR="DimGray"]Nutrition
I'm pretty sure I'm going the low kcal route, lots of lean meats w/ broccoli, Oats, protein shake etc.
And lifting heavy again at the gym.

Hmm before 4pm: Oats, fruits, eggs, wholegrain bread. After 4pm: lean meats and veggies. (Although I'll still probably drink alcohol)



SW:113
CW:111
GW:105



Hungry4achange, I'm quite sure that no one here would have a problem with where you are located!- I've got a wedding to go to aswell, Uncle's in the beginning of July.

BRING IT ON!!

Okay count me in, I just started today and I'm at 266, I figure I'll go for 14 pounds because weight loss is usually speedy at the beginning right? So 252 by the 27th.

Thanks for letting me join!
