Reason: Moved from WL to Games & Challenges
Hey! Do you mind if I join? I'm actually only looking to be between 140-145 by Christmas (I'm at 150 right now) but I've been doing really poorly the last few weeks, and am searching for some motivation.
A little about myself, highest weight was 170 (sophomore year of college), I was 155 when I came to college, now I'm a 4th-year junior, chemical engineering student and college athlete. (we're in season now, which is why I don't want to dramatically deprive myself of nutrients!)
I'll be done with my college swimming career in february, which is another reason why I want to slim down now, so that I'm not fighting too hard to get my ideal body when I stop working out 20 hours a week! (I'm actually looking forward to losing a bit of muscle at that point... lol)
Anyway, 150 at 5'6" and extremely athletic isn't huge or anything, but I'm aiming for 140 gw
I'm in the same boat with only having about 20 pounds left, but I don't think it is possible to lose that much by Christmas.... My goal is 7 pounds by Christmas and even that is pushing it since there is only 5-6 weeks until then....good luck, though!!
Hi, I am new to the CC and really feel I need a group like this to help me stay encouraged. I gained almost twenty pounds at the beginning of this year. I think it is a change of life thing which makes it hard to lose. I have now lost eleven pounds and want to lose ten to twelve more by Christmas. We can help to motivate each other, I think. The last several pounds always seem the slowest to come off so lat's watch our calorie intake more carefully and really ramp up the excercise!!
I have about 12-15 lbs left to go as well. I doubt I'll get there by Christmas, though I will surely try. At most, I'll probably lose 10 lbs by the 25th, and that in and of itself would be a true Christmas miracle, lol.
Hi again, I am actually trying to lose at least eight of the ten pound loss by the 13th of December. I am going to Atlanta for my company's Christmas party and want so much to be slim by then. I know I can get close (afterall, that is only about two pounds per week) and also know that Menopause has slowed my weight loss significantly. I need to remind myself though that I am halfway to my goal already and to just keep at it. Let's just stay focused, okay? Keep our eyes on the prize (looser fitting clothes, a new Christmas outfit, more confidence, etc.). Let's check in with each other a couple of times a week and be an encouragement to one another. I could sure use some "accountabilty partners"!!
I wish I could join, but my husband and doctor kind of talked me into throwing my scale away.
I am SO motivated by numbers!
let's do it guys!
arroub.. it doesn't have to be weight.. you could try to drop a dress size instead.. or tone up a part of your body
also, i guess you could also do it if it isn't the last 10lbs but the first 10lbs towards your goal
Hello there, I am working on losing 15 lbs, but I know I lose weight slowly so I'm only shooting for losing 1/2 by Christmas, the other half by Valentines. :-)
Good luck everyone, I'm excited. :~D
Except i DON'T have a scale right now, but will in xmas because i'll be back home..
i'm just gauging my progress with clothes tho, i've skinny jeans i still dont' fit into - more than one pair- and i'm making quite the progress with them! My goal is 2 lbs a week (2 lbs = 1 dress size)
I am in, also! I have been SO terribly off-track in the past weeks, and need some accountability to get me to my goal Christmas weight (not my actual goal weight). I want to lose 9 lbs by Christmas. Currently at 164 and WILL be at 155 by December 19th (the day I go home for the holidays)...
Hey, 1200 cal girl... 2 pounds doesn't equal a dress size.... haha. I'd be size -1 at this point if that was the case, since I started at size 9 and have dropped 20 pounds....
Great. I'm in the home stretch too. I'm at 188 now, and I'm shooting for 180 by Christmas. I'm down 101.5 lbs, and I've been losing weight for three and a half years now, but I've been stuck in the neighborhood of 190 for months now (mostly due to my own lack of diligence). I am so ready to be officially done losing weight and to move into maintenance.
Let's get to it. I'm going for a run. Good luck everyone.
I want to lose between 10 and 15 pounds before the holidays too! I am moving to San Francisco in the beginning of January so I dont want to have to worry about pinching an extra inch on top of getting used to a new city.
Weight today: 138 (bloated I think due to T. O.M. on its way)
Goal Weight: 125
I'm so with you! but just looking to lose 5-10lbs...
hi! i have six punds to lose by xmas, i want to be at my goal weight!! lets keep in contact and help each other
then i might have lost more? i just lost alot of weight last week (granted some bloat) and fit this weekend into jeans i couldnt even button a week before... so i assumed it was a 2 lb loss since that's the healthy amount you lose per week??
ah i need a scale :P well as long it reads 110 lbs or less by xmas i'm good.
I'm with you!
I'm already in a x-mas goal weigh-in group...but I figure the more support and accountability the better :)
Weight at Last Weigh-In (Fri, Nov 13): 151.6lb
Goal X-mas Weight: 145lb
Only 6.6 lb to go before X-mas should be doable!
Count me in!
I'm at 136 right now (down from an all-time high of 230!) and might go for 120 (I'm 5' 6" with a small frame). By Christmas, though, my goal is to be at or below 130.
Just weighed in again today and down another 1.4lb!
SW(On this group): 151.6lb
GW(By X-mas): 145lb
5.2 lb to go within 5 weeks, definately going to have to work hard for it, but I think it's realistic :)
