Want to start a new challenge!!

Postby kaitie09 » Tue Sep 14, 2010 2:32 pm

Hi all,
I am brand new to these forums and am looking for some inspiration and motivation to get my weight loss into gear.
Am thinking starting a challenge up with a few like-minded individuals would help with a support network and a group of people all doing the same thing.

Challenge Goal: Lose 10 kgs in 12 weeks.

Week 1 starting from next Monday morning.


Do we need to set any challenge rules?
Anyone keen to join me?

Hi there,

I am keen to join you, although I started my personal challenge yesterday morning. Hope that doesn't count me out? :lol:

I have 10.4 kg to lose to go back to 65 kg.
What sort of rules should there be?

Thanks,
jetje in Dubai

Hi Kaitie09 and Jetje

I am keen, I am new user too and I would love to start Monday with you, I need the motivation. While I would like to lose more than 10kg I would be more than happy to do this challenge to get me started!

So weigh ins are on a Monday morning?

This week for me has been my warm up week by trying to get into a rhythm of good eating and exercise but hasnt completely been implemented so by having the challenge set, I've got something to answer to!

Definitely. Weigh ins and measurements on Monday?

Rules though? Hmm...
Any thoughts? I'm open to anything really. Never done a challenge like this before so not entirely sure what to put down!! :)

Perhaps:

-Food Diary must be maintained and shared weekly with exercise included (Makes you accountable for everything you eat and what exercise you do).
-Weekly weigh-ins and measurements.
-Exercise and diet is up to each person in the challenge (no set rules on calorie intake or exercise amounts etc).

Anything else?

Those rules sound great to me, we can add any new ones if we think of any! I will be back on Moday morning with my starting weight and measurements! Thanks Kaitie for setting this challenge, I need some motivation!

I meant to ask you Kaitie, how do post the ticker in your signature?

Excellent idea.
Monday morning, bright and early. :)

Looking forward to it. I really need someone else to motivate me- so I'm accountable for everything I do!

As for the ticker- go to the website tickerfactory.com and set up a weightloss ticker.
It will show you two links beneath the finished product once you've made it.
The top one is more message boards so you'll need to copy that one.
You copy that information into your signature which you can find on this forum under "User Control Panel" which is up the top of the page. And under Profile it will have an area for "signature".

Does that help?

Looking forward to monday!!

Hi Kaitie

Thanks that does help a lot, I am excited to start this journey too, it does help to be accountable to someone. I am going to try and be good this weekend, it is always so much harder to be healthy on weekends, they are my biggest hurdle!

Hope you have a good weekend! :D

Hi Girls,

Thanks for determining the rules to use, and if you both don't mind, I will join you both in our endeavour...

Since the time difference here is approx. 6 hours behind from Australia, my monday morning weigh in will be slightly later than yours. I will also include a diary of what I am eating and the amount of exercise I am doing. Looking forward to a great success for all of us!! :P

Catch u later

Okay:
Bust: 95cm
Waist: 83cm
Hips: 115cm
Thigh: 64cm

Dress Size: 12-14
Weight: Now here's the issue. I don't have scales at home so cannot weigh myself in my birthday suit. I have access to scales at work (hospital-grade and very accurate. I'll be weighing myself without shoes and minusing ~500g for my clothes.
Therefore start weight this week is 75.4kg with clothes. 75kgs without. :)

Ready for the challenge!!
