B'sgirl's 8 week challenge!

Postby B'sgirl » Mon Aug 10, 2009 8:40 pm

So, here's the deal,

I have my 20 year school reunion coming up on the October long weekend & I know that I have been procrastinating about it for some time but I've finally pulled my head outta my butt & decided to try & lose some kegs for it! :mrgreen:

So my starting weight as of today (monday August 10th) is 73kgs. Realistically I know that 10kgs in 8 weeks is a pretty far flung feat. So, my goal will be to lose 10% of my body weight by then which would be 7.3kgs (65.7kgs) & I think that this goal will be much more achievable.

I have a plan in place & so far I have executed it superbly! Although in saying that, it is only day one afterall! :?

I will record my progress, whether it be good or bad, in this thread on a weekly basis.

So, the plan is in place & I'm *almost* looking forward to my school reunion (as much as humanly possible!? :roll: )

Anyone wishing to join me on this challenge is most welcome to.

Count me in! My interim goal weight is 68kg, but I'll set my challenge goal weight to be 65.7kg too. Hopefully with a bit of good eating I'll get there!

It's great to see you back here, Hayley. Best of luck with the challenge and I hope you have a great time at your reunion!

Thanx Ali, it's great to be back!

I can't believe that this time last year I actually weighed in at 65kgs! :oops: Ahhh well, onwards & upwards they say! If I've done it once, I can surely do it again! :D

Great to have you on board!

Hey B'sgirl :D I am totally in for this challeng! I also have a school reunion looming.....17th Oct to be exact. I would love to lose a bit of weight by then, just to feel a bit better about about how I look. 8) Not that I really care about the people going...but you know :wink:

Mmmmm I'm not sure what to set as a goal, maybe a 6 kg loss. That is aiming EXTREMELY high fo me :roll: but hey.......u never know, If I actually start seriously trying it may happen :D

Welcome Starr! :D

I reckon 6kgs is achievable especially seeing that you've got a couple more weeks after the long weekend before your reunion.

I know what you mean about looking your best at a reunion. I wasn't a "popular" girl at my school, in fact I was one of those girls who had weight issues, acne, I wore glasses & I was shy, so I was prime fodder for the "skinny b***hes" :lol:

Anyway, welcome aboard & lets get this challenge off the ground! :wink:

In my dreams :lol:

Hope you girls are going well.

Starr, I was thinking probably just post our weekly weigh-in results on whatever day you weigh in as everyone weighs in on different days. My weigh in days are mondays so I'll just post my monday results on this thread as well as my progress thread. :D But it's up to you. You can weigh in weekly, fortnightly or monthly if you like.

Hope everyone is going well,

Ok so I didn't lose that much this week. Sitting at 71.5kgs which has been stable for 3 days so that's better than gaining I suppose.

So a loss of 400gms since last week & that leaves 5.8kgs til goal! :D

Lol! It's sooo frustrating! Although I kinda expected a gain 'cos I ate whatever I wanted to on the weekend & did no exercise :? Anyhoo, I'm aiming for a bigger loss next week.
