So I just finished a challenge hosted by inskydiamonds. I really enjoyed being in the challenge and I thought it would be interesting to host my own. Participating in a challenge has really helped me with accountability and motivated me even more to do the best I could do. I'm basing a lot of this challenge on the way inskydiamonds did her own. She really did a great job.

So I was thinking about the New Year's resolution I made last year. My goal was to lose sixty pounds. I'm not going to be able to make that goal but I can get as close to it as I possibly can. I was thinking this challenge could run from September 5,2012 to December 26,2012.

Everyone would weigh in once a week and post their weight to this forum. Each week there could be little mini challenges like getting so many minutes of exercise in for that week, or drinking a certain amount of water each day. Anything along those lines. I just really want people to feel as motivated by this challenge as I did during my last one.

Let me know if anyone is interested. First weigh in would be next Friday.

Edit:

I am definitely going to do this so if you want to participate go ahead and let me know your starting weight and your goal weight for the challenge. Also, tell me a goal that doesn't have to do with the scale!

@Bola 17

I had planned on leaving the group open. I want people to be able to join even after the challenge begins. Here is where I will put up the spreadsheet for the weekly losses.I also plan on putting up some mini goals each week. And I hope in this group we can offer each other a little bit of healthy competition as well as support.
