Re: If you want to join, sponsor or run the Summer weightloss challenge check in here

Drumroll please!

My official starting weight is 174.2. That is down from aproxx 206 right before I gave birth to ds. I stopped looking at the scale at the end. I know some of the loss is from having a baby,lol. But it is still nice to see that I have lost about 31.8 lbs
My goal for the next 8 weeks is to get down to 160. Is that realistic? 1.75 lbs a week?? Or should I aim more like 164 so I am not dissapointed? but then if I have a harder goal it might make me work harder....
Ha ha, can you tell I am feeling indecisive this morning? I might need to drink some coffee.

Oh and does anyone know how to figure percentages? Like if I lost 14 lbs what percenate of my body weight would I have lost.

I'm in. I'm at 168, I had gotten down to 162 but went back up. My ultimate goal weight is 130 but I'm aiming for 150 right now. Small goals first

Are you doing separate mens and womens? I would be scared to do it w/ a bunch of guys since men naturally have a lower bmi when at their ideal weight. Dang my hips

Count me in, too! I will need to wait for DS to wake up to get an official starting weight, but I think I am right around 157 @ 5 feet 7 inches tall.

I have started walking/running 3 to 4 days a week and am also going to be doing some strength training at the local YMCA 2 days a week. I am getting married at the beginning of August -- barefoot on the beach in a sundress, nothing fancy -- I want to feel good about myself!

What is the end date for this challenge? That will help me determine my goal weight for the challenge. And, how often are we supposed to weigh in?
