Last 5-10 lbs Challenge! Esp. for college students!


Quote  |  Reply
I always see these weight loss challenges, but I haven't found one for people trying to lose those last few inches or pounds. So I decided to start one! This is going to be about a 2 month challenge, so it is especially good for those college students (like me!) to shed the last bit of weight before school starts. But anyone is welcome of course. I need to be accountable to someone(I'm sooo close to my goal!), and these challenges really seem to work! Weigh-ins can be once a week, every Friday. Include:

Start Weight:

Goal Weight:

and any measurements that you are working on. For me it is waist and hips.

We will start this Friday, August 3rd with starting weights/inches and end on September 21st. Sign up if interested! :)

So I am not a college student but do need to lose the last 3-5 lbs (I know it's gonna be tough). So can I join?!?

Starting weight: 109 lbs
Goal weight: 105 lbs

I have no specific measurement goals except to have them continue to go down. My waist (holding the muscles firmly) is 27.5 inches at belly button, 26 at narrowest, hips are 34.5 inches. I have already lost 3.5 inches already from my hips and 3.5 inches from my belly so am already thrilled.

I'm a college kid and would love to lose those last lbs before going back!

Starting weight: 131 lbs (as of a couple of days ago, I'll check on the 3rd)

Goal weight: 125 lbs

I don't know my measurements but if I happen to think about it, I'll add those in.

Good luck all!

Going to try and figure out my measurements tonight cause I had wanted to anyway.
I reallllllllllly need to start taking proper measurements!  I will do that this week and try and stay along with this post!

Goal Weight: 120

I'm trying to lose very slowly, about half a pound a week, so I think this goal is okay for Sept 21.

Good luck everyone!

Elle, I started at that exact weight (141) and 7 months later I'm 125!  Again, I did it slowly, but it feels great!

After losing 10 pounds I'm getting lazy.. so im glad to have a support group and lose my weight just in time for my b-day!

current weight: 133

8/10 weigh in: 132.8  NOT BAD... a lot more work to do though :)

TWELVE days 'til MOVE IN!  yikes!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
