On Christmas Day I calculated that if I lose 1 pound a week starting 12-25 than I would reach my EXACT GOAL of 145 on 12-31-13! Pretty cool!!!!!

1 pound a week is very doable and sustainable! This is not a race, right? I plan to make this a gradual lifestyle change. I started by reducing my processed foods, adding in more fruits and veggies and of course, logging on MFP. I have started walking and will add in weights and jogging and eliptical. And whatever other cardio catches my fancy. tongue

So, WANT TO JOIN MY CHALLENGE? I'm looking to have a strong group of friends to support each other and reach our goals in 2013! FRIEND ME AND THE OTHERS IN THIS THREAD. flowerforyou

Post in this thread when you weigh in and lose your pound for that week. Doesn't matter what your weigh in day is. :-). Encourage others who are struggling!!! Post your plans to adopt a healthy lifestyle... We can all learn from each other!

Great post. Starting today I weigh in at 254.2 (lost 0.6 pounds this past week, only by the grace of God I know for sure). I look forward to seeing how everyone's doing throughout the weeks (tips, motivating catch phrases, set-backs and how one has managed to overcome it, etc. etc., emphasis on the POSITIVE and PERSEVERANCE). Wonderful, glad to be here :)

I am looking to lose about 1/2 a pound each week, but I could really use some new friends and some support.

My weight this morning was 170 and my goal is to be 148 by December 2013.

I am running my first half marathon this year and want to add more weight training and yoga to reduce my body fat from 28% to at least 25%.

I really would love to have people not only cheering me on, but reminding me of my ultimate goal and I promise to do the same!

Thanks for joining me on this journey. Friend requests sent! flowerforyou

I too hope this continues the well into the NEW YEAR! Because if it doesn't that means 1 of 2 things.... I met my goal early or somehow I quit my journey! Let's hope it means I met my goal early but I plan to continue to help YOU ALL reach YOUR GOALS!

I'll give it a shot!

I have about 30lbs to lose, and am hoping to hit my goal about mid-year. Some friends with a similar goal of 1lb a week would be great.

Sounds like a great plan. We should start a group in the group area. That way it will be easier to keep track of where we are at.

I gained ten pounds in 6 weeks of inactivity due to Sandy and an injury that kept me away from the gym. Have been so depressed about it I don't even want to attempt doing what it takes to get all this weight off (I am a small person). SO - this thread could not have arrived at a better time! Looking forward to keeping in touch with all you POSITIVE MOTIVATED people! We can do this!

I'd love to! smile

I went to groups and there is a group "2013 challenge to lose 52 lbs". I joined that group, because I'm not sure how to create a group and I'm not sure I want to be the moderator of a group. Come check it out.
