Challenge urgently needed!!

Postby Paula76 » Tue Jun 08, 2010 12:03 pm

Hi all - I am new here. I have been in maintenance mode for the last 6 weeks and have decided enough is enough. The only way I seem to have lost any weight in the last 18 mths (since I started) is when I was part of a challenge. Challenges motivate me to do more and lost weight.

I was just wondering are there any challenges going on here atm that I can join in with? I need to be accountable for both exercise and weigh ins.

My starting weight (18mths ago) was 123kgs - I am now 96.2 but still need to get down to 76kgs to reach my goal weight.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Hoping to get to know you all.

Paula

Hey Paula, congrats on your weight loss to date! :D :D

I think short challenges are best for getting more people to participate. What about a 6 week challenge?
Free to people of all weights to enter. Just make your weight loss pledge in the first week, and leave your start weight.

I'd love to participate in whatever you come up with!

Thanks - ok I guess if we can get a minimum of 6 people enthused it will help us all keep on track. I actually like to incorporate exercise as well as WL into a challenge - otherwise I tend not to exercise. It will be based on mins of exercise because not everyone may have a HRM.

Start this Friday - end date 23 July. Weigh in and also post your goal weight for the end of the 6 weeks.
Exercise mins - something I have found really motivating is to have a group goal of exercise mins - everyone needs to pledge how many mins exercise they think they will do in a week and keep it updated. There are google spreadsheets we can set up to keep posting exercise when it is done individually with the group target reducing as we enter the mins in - if that makes sense!!! I found that contributing to a group total makes you more inclined to do it as you are not just letting yourself down but the whole team. If we get 6 members - we could have 3 in each team - a little friendly competition if you like.

We could have a google spreadsheet for the WL recording as well. And a post here where we can talk about daily highs and lows.

What do you think?

I'll join! I will weigh in Friday to get my starting weight and probably put my goal weight as 5kg less than that.

Secretly I would LOVE to be under 90kg at the end of it...might be wishful thinking though!

Are we going to move to the challenges section?
My journey so far...

Awesome!! That's 5 - if we can get one more person to join we can have an equal number of people for the exercise component. I will start to make up the spreadsheet so it is ready for Friday start.

Members so far:
Paula
FFS
Sassy
HG83
Shay

If you prefer to be called by your actual name then please edit the list so I know what to enter you in as. This should be good! Remember though if you commit to the exercise it is important that you do your absolute best to get it done.

I will commit to 300mins per week. What I will do is add all the mins of everyone together and then work out the average for the 2 teams - if you do more - great! That just means more fitness and weight loss. The winning exercise team will be the one that has done the most - but both teams need to reach the set target. Hope this makes sense and doesn't seem to bossy! :D

If you want to enter in your starting weight on Friday on the spreadsheet that will give us all a starting point - Shay you don't have to do this - congrats on the pregnancy by the way!!

I will setup a new challenge thread in the challenge section and once the spreadsheet is setup give you all the link so you can keep updating.

Thanks for joining!
