So what's the plan of action ?
October 8, 2012 7:11 AM
I would love to join!
October 8, 2012 7:18 AM
the plan is, weekly weigh ins of a thursday, if everyone could give their measurements also that would be great and any one who feels comfortable doing so, post before, during (4 weeks in) and after photos on the last day, final weigh in, thursday 29th november, any tips or words of encouragement welcome :)

I'd be happy for any weigh in day - happy to go with the majority. Will this be a closed group or will we have to keep an eye out for a thread?

I'm currently 219 and would aim to be 205.

So does this mean that we are now offically in week 1?

Thanks

To create a group go to my home and then there is a 'groups' tab - click on this and you can create your own group and invite all those people who are interested in taking part in the challenge. It would mean it would be easier to follow than to search through our recent posts.
how do i know if that is a closed group or not? i always find where iv wrote from my 'recent posts' part, or off my profile, quite new to posting threads, and yea this can be officially week 1 but if any one joins later thats fine

Can I stick with a Monday ? Call my final weigh-in 26th November ?
October 8, 2012 7:45 AM
I really like this idea, but want to keep my weigh-ins on Mondays. I'll see how that helps/hurts me to change my weigh in to Thursday---I'll try it. I just feel like my Monday weigh-ins keeping me from blowing it on the weekends. :)

I'm in for the challenge! I am doing the 17 day diet during it. Anybody feel free to add me :)
October 8, 2012 10:56 AM
I would love to join. As of today I am 200.4. I will post my weight on Thrusday and do measurments (gag). I have RA so it is hard to exercise but I am really going to try to start. Even if it is just the elliptical at the gym, I know losing weight will help tremendously with my joint pain and I need to get that under control.

My goal is 15lbs by my 41st birthday which is Dec. 4th.

Hi all! I would love to join this challange. It's crazy that in 8 weeks it will be the beginning of the holidays! I need to be good about staying on track. I am usually fairly good until the weekend approaches. The busier I am the better I am because when I lay around food is what I want to eat. UGH! I am 146 I would like to be 135 by the beginning of Christmas. Are we going to add goals from week to week? How do we go about this? I have never done a group on here.

I would like to join in as well. I weighed this week on a Monday, so I think it would be a good idea to keep monday as my weigh day.

Anyone doing the challenge can feel free to add me!

My goal by Christmas is to lose 15 pounds! i think I can do that :)

Count me in! I'd like to lose 10 lbs in the next 8 weeks. (More would be great, but trying to be realistic!)
October 9, 2012 6:29 AM
I'm in! I think 15 pounds in 8 weeks sounds like a good goal. I have more to lose, but that's a good place to start. I seem to be the only one in my family trying to lose weight, so a support network would be good...
October 9, 2012 6:31 AM
So, 15 lbs in 8 wks? Sure! Bring it on!! It would be very difficult for me as it has never worked. I will take any loss as I am struggling with plateau!

My starting weight 162lb. I prefer weigh-in on Monday or Wed (I will be travelling on Thanksgiving Th).
