    January/February weight loss challenge

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Welcome to 2011, the year of my getting serious (or so I keep telling myself).

    Let me know
    (1) if you want to join in
    (2) what your weight is on Friday the 7th of January (or whatever day works best for you)
    (3) what your goal weight is for 25 February - if you want to, if you don't want to set a goal like that, then no worries.

    I'll post the link to the chart later in the week.

    We'll do another 7-week chart to accommodate the short month.

    I'm in! Last challenge I slacked. I'm alright with that, I needed a break. But I'm ready to tackle these last 10-15 lbs.

    I'm in again and my goal again is 122lbs. I'm starting at 127 due to eating my way into the new year.
    Vertically challenged, but expanding my horizons.

    I'm in. Time to really and truly change the way I eat and shop. I can't keep buying healthy food for me and junk for for kids. I eat the junk, it's just not working. I have to change the way the entire family eats. I guess it's time to lay down the law with the DH.

    Thank you Posse Gal.

    I'd like to join in. I kept myself mostly on-track through the holidays (lost 8 lbs. between Thanksgiving and NYE), but could probably use some extra accountability.

    I'm starting at 226. I'd like to be at 215 by the end of February.

    Okay, I've never done anything like this before but what the heck, it's time to start!

    I'm in. Currently 180 with an ideal weight of 145, but it's been heading in the wrong direction of late, so I'll be happy just to see any improvement by the end of february!

    I'm having a hard time deciding what a good goal is for me? I am seriously debating purchasing a scale with a BMI function on it to help me with this. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow for a physical just to start the year off right and see how the ole bod is doing. I would like to get down to an ideal weight what ever that may be. I tried weighing at the gym the other day and the scale wasn't working right, it kept hanging. It told me I weighed 165 which only puts me 10 lbs below my heaviest weight to date of 175 when I was wearing a size 16-18. So I really hope that scale was wrong, now I wear a size 10 which is pretty small for me and I'm a tad over 5'7. May talk to my doctor tomorrow about a good goal to shoot for.

    My goal has been 23% body fat. I am about 24% now. I do have a scale with a body fat function and I like it, but it fluctuates with how hydrated I am.
