Start weight: around 130
Goal weight: around 110
Biggest problem: staying motivated.. And once I'm not motivated and eat horribly and stop exercising..:/

Starting weight: 264lbs

Biggest Problem: Staying motivated. I will be awesome for about a week, then its right back to old habits of picking up fast food because I don't feel like cooking etc.

I'm hoping this time I can keep a better pace. I also joined 3 bets on, so if I don't lose 10lbs by the end of February I'm out $40!! Hoping that will be motivation too! lol
January 21, 2013 9:32 AM

Starting weight for the challenge: 228.5

Biggest problem: Cooking dinner. I'm usually tired after work and don't feel like cooking, so we end up eating out. Also finding motivation to exercise is a big one too.

Starting weight 169
Goal weight 150
Biggest problem: I have a 7 month old son who is not sleeping through the night yet and naps are finding a regular time to work out is tricky. I am also reducing calories at this point isn't an option.

I started one of these last night, and now we have 2 postcard challenges running. If you don't mind, could we merge boards? This was the link to our board:

Can you just get all of our starting weights from there? If not, I can PM each member (there's not many right now) and ask them to post it here.

Anyway, I'll be joining this one.

Starting weight: 170.6 (my goal weight for this challenge is 169.1 (a 1.5 pound loss).

Problems: Keeping my sodium in check. I live in the dorms at college, and even the healthy stuff in the dining halls is FILLED with sodium. Also, drinking enough water.

I'm in... 283.4 this morning.... And dropping!
January 21, 2013 1:45 PM
I'm in!

Starting weight on 1/21/13: 176.6

Problems: I eat a mostly vegetarian diet during the week so I'm looking to add more protein- less fruit. I also like to drink wine on the weekend and that's a hard habit for me to break.

Count me in. I just started using MFP 2 days ago, but I want to keep it up.
Starting weight: 192 on 1/21
Goal weight: 180

Biggest problem: I eat good stuff, but I eat too much of it. Portion control is my goal.
January 21, 2013 1:49 PM
Totally in!! I love this idea.

Starting Weight: 173.9
Goal Weight (for the time frame anyway): 169.5

I am hoping to keep my meals and daily reports more even when it comes to nutrients as well as keep with my C25K and 30DDS! Not to mention the problem of the wasted calories (I am not very willing to get rid of my beer)!

Good Luck and Happy Losing!

I'm in! Starting weight 202.6. My goal overall is to get to the 160s. My biggest challenge is time. As a mother, wife, teacher, and coach my time is extremely limited.

Good luck everyone! :)

I'm in! My weight yesterday was 160.2 lbs though that seemed a little too light to be realistic! My overall goal is just to be classed as a healthy weight, so that would be 132 lbs. My biggest challenge is when I'm not in charge of the food, such as eating out, or when my mum comes to stay and takes over my kitchen. See you next Monday!

Im In!! Perfect timing because my birthday is Feb 5th ... I'd love that postcard, if I earn it!! Starting weight 149.0

I went down then back up again because of Salty food! explode I know it will go back down quicker because its water retention but I'm still mad, I want the other number back!
January 24, 2013 7:42 PM
Hows everyone doing so far?! Im excited for this weekend to get some good burns in and ((((hopefully))))) post a good number monday!! Anyone got any exciting workout plans this weekend?
January 24, 2013 9:05 PM
Sodium has me up two whole pounds but it's impossible to avoid in the dining halls while trying to get adequate protein. grumble grumble grumble
January 27, 2013 3:04 PM
hey everyone! hope your weekends have been treating you well!! tomorrow is weigh in day! please Post weights in here, as it is easier for me to check thanks!
January 28, 2013 12:54 AM
Well, I'm up to 160.8 lbs - I knew 160.2 was unrealistically low when I logged it last week, my weight has been fluctuating by about 2 lbs all week.
