Cool thanx.

It will help me to come on here daily and vent or update my progress.

Ive been struggling to loose weight for almost a year now. after I had my last bub it just wont move no matter what I do. I'm guessing because I'm now 26 things will slow down a bit and I will have to really work my but to budge the weight.

So my plan to make the big change before my engagement party next may is to drop 25kilos which means losing at the very least 4 kilos a month to reach my goal so I can go dress shopping a month before :D

I will do 15 minutes of Just Dance 2 on the wii daily, a morning yoga DVD work out 3 times a week, a 30 min walk 3 times a week pushing a pram, decrease my portion sizes again, drink 5 glasses of water daily, go to bed early and try to be more happy :)

I vow to do all this to be 25 kilos lighter by may 2011.

A better place for that might be "Personal Progress" thread. That's where most of us let fly with our successes and our shortcomings. You're welcome to post your progress towards your target though.
"Weekly Weigh-in" is another thread where you might want to record your losses.

Have fun!

Consider yourself joined, sizing_down

8 kilo should be achievable, I'd wish you good luck, but losing weight doesn't really rely on luck. What you put in, or leave out :lol: , is how you lose the weight.

cheers

Hey All,

I would love to join this group, hope its not too late.

I weighed in at 94kgs on Saturday 11th Dec. This is the start of my new bod to be 68kgs and this is my 1st challenge.

What is a good amount to aim to loose each week?

Thanks
:-)

Welcome on board

Weight loss rate varies widely - 1kg per week can be too much for some, and yet easily attained by others. Perhaps record weight loss over a few weeks and use that as a guide.

Nothing to stop you changing the goal weight if you find it not challenging enough or if it is too challenging.

Hi,

Ok I will aim to loose 8 kgs in 11 weeks. This is just under 1 kg a week.

So by the 28th FEB 2011 I will weigh in at 86kgs or less.

Good luck every!!!

I thought I'd pop into this challenge to see how I'm progressing in relation to the 28 Feb 2011 target. One month into the challenge and I am pretty well on target for 120kg - 13.25kg to go :D

just checking again. I'm making myself a few new mini goals so thought I should check what I'd already commited to... I still need to lose 4.2kg in the next 5 weeks to meet this one- which should still be possible provided I really get back on track... I did have a major "Yay" moment today though. I'm officially no longer obese! my BMI has finally crept down below 30!

This Challenge begins on 1 December 2010 and concludes 28 February 2011

I'll kick it off by setting my target for 28 February as 125kg - a loss of about 20kg

Join in the fun - set yourself a goal!


Oh Boy, did I underestimate my target for this challenge! Reached the target with a month to spare - REVISED TARGET 119kg (it is a short month :lol: )
