Talking Chicks Christmas Challenge- Please Join Me!!!!!!!!!

Good Morning,

This morning I had a great idea. Christmas is about 14 weeks away. I know that christmas is usually all about children, but this time let it be about us. Let's start a christmas challenge. That way we have something to look forward too. And we all know that the holidays are a time when you get to see all the relatives that you don't get to see once a year, so let's give them something to talk about.

I hearby challenge myself to lose 25 pounds by christmas 2004. That means my weight should be about 187. Wow I haven't weighed 187 since my daughter was born 3 years ago.

I am with you! 25 by Christmas would be WONDERFUL. I am 209 right now so by Christmas I should be 184. That would be wonderful! (I said that already right?)

I'd

like to

join in this

challenge too.

My Hallowe'en goal

is to loose 10 pounds.

That will put me at 245 lbs.

Realistically, I should be able to

loose another 10 pounds by Christmas.

So, my goal is to be at 235 pounds at Christmas

JOY

I think I'm in. 25lbs by Christmas would put me at 188lbs, which is almost halfway to my goal. I think I'm gonna go home tonight and just throw away all the sugary stuff. We can do this!

I am with you. I have already started cutting back on my fat grams per day. I also joined the YMCA (they have free baby sitting while you work out ) My big goal is to lose 30 lbs. by my 31st b-day (april 20) will put me at 125. So my mini goal is to lose half by christmas..15 lbs.
I also am trying to drink 64 oz of h2o a day. So far so good...half way there for today. I went to the gym already today. I am very proud of my self. I walked and ran a 14 min mile and then I got on the bike for 20 min. and did 7 miles!!!!! unbelievable. I feel awesome. for breakfast I had 13 fat grams and after my workout I had 12.5 fat grams at lunch. Today is a great day.
Katibug: I know how you feel about your carbs, believe me. But don't cut them all out completely, you need some carbs. That is where you get your energy. Just cut back.
Good luck to us all. I think this thread is going to be good for me. I am glad I found it.

Default Back For Day 2

Hello all. I didn't do as great at the gym today. I only did a 13.19 mile and quit. but I ran most of it. That is my fastest time yet. I have drank 64 oz of h2o already. So I am doing good with that. I want a large carmel swerl iced latte so so bad. That is one treat I need to give up though I hate to. They are so good. I don't know how bad they are as far as fat and sugar and all the bad stuff but I am sure they are pretty bad. Well, hope everyone is doing good. Talk to ya tomorrow.

Do NOT get discouraged over the mile time! We all have up and down days in the gym. I did 200 crunches on the machine one day. The following week when it was time to work my abs again, I couldn't do 100 without quitting. As long as you are doing SOMETHING and not sitting on your tookus 24/7, you are ahead of the game.

Good luck!
