    September/October weight loss challenge

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I'll set up another 8 week spreadsheet. So anyone interested in joining in, just post here and let me know your:

    ** weight on Friday the 11th (though I'm totally flexible, whatever day works best for you to weigh in, don't worry about it, just weigh in when you want to around Fridays).
    ** goal weight for 8 weeks from this Friday (which actually takes us to the second of November). And if it would work best for you to just work on losing but not have an 8-week goal weight, no problemo!
    You too can help me fight cancer, and get a lovely cookbook for your very own! My team's cookbook is for sale Click here to order. Proceeds go to our team's fundraising for the Philly Livestrong Challenge!

    I'll have to weigh in now, and some odd day next week, as I'll be out of town for a couple weeks, minus a couple days!

    I'm at (gulp) 169.2. YIKE... I was doing so well till a couple months ago!

    Goal after 8 weeks: 156.
    This is good -- I've been doing more walking than anything, and I just cannot lose weight walking (obviously, I can GAIN though!).
    The 3-Day Breast Cancer walk is this coming weekend (YIPPEE!), and after that I can get back into a routine of workouts that really do get my intensity up. This will be excellent incentive to check in here each week!

    THANKS POSSEGAL for doing this stuff!

    Definitely in!
    I lost a whooping 1.8 pounds. I guess better than gaining.
    Nov. 2nd is the offically start to my marathon training. I really want to be at a much lower weight. So these next 8 weeks I need to be very serious. Now I just had a holiday weekend (drinking); have short family related vaca next week (eating & drinking)--but cooler weather and hills to run and lastly in Oct. 2 week vaca w/ 1 week a "bike vacation" = lots of eating/drinking!
    LOL...and I want to lose weight!

    So I'll weigh in Th or Fri and goal...under 115? Do-able? Hm that is about 7 - 8 pounds. Better hit the ground running today!

    Thanks Possegal for keeping us going!

    coun't me in again too. I'll weigh in on Friday and report back with goal weight then. At a conference most of the week. I hope that doesn't put my starting weight too high! At least there's free access to the pool here so I can go for a swim each morning, and I'm trying to resist the treats at coffee breaks.

    In as always. 125 goal for me again.

    I just hired a coach to work with me on a training plan for November 2009 through June 2010, when I will compete in my 1st half-ironman. One of the things we are going to work on is to dial in my nutrition a little more. While my current weight is very healthy and well inside of normal for my height and body type, I want to change the composition of my body. Add to muscle mass and lose some more fat mass. Overall, that ought to take me down a few more net pounds over time.

    This challenge will (hopefully) help keep me more accountable to that goal.

    Count me in, too. My goal weight is 158.0

    I've actually taken the last two weeks off from my weight training and logging my food and I've managed to keep my weight the same (Yay!). I'm getting back on the active effort bandwagon this week, so I'm hoping for more progress once again.

    My final goal is 135 - by next March (or thereabouts).

    Hi
    I'd like to join in - I am starting at 131 and would like to be 126 or below by the end of the 8 weeks. I'm doing Weightwatchers online, and was at 136-137 at the beginning of July. The cycling helped move me off a 7 week plateau, and I hope it keeps working. (Eventual goal: 120)

    Thanks!
    Sharon
