I’m always down for a weight-loss challenge!  I’m weighing in once per week.  

 

My challenge is to exercise 7 days a week – 5x at the gym and on the days I don’t work out at the gym, I need to go on a brisk walk of at least a half hour.  

 

I would love to lose 20lbs by your wedding day in just over 3 mos.  

 

I also want to go back to my “no carbs after lunch” eating program that I was on previously.  I think slipping on that rule is one of the things that has contributed to my weight loss slowing down. 

 

So, I’m in!  Who else is with us?!

i’m in as well! my dress is on layaway, and the sample fit perfectly except i need to lose about an inch off my hips. i said i would order the size up and get it altered to fit my top, but it would be soooo much easier and cheaper if i could just lose an inch. 95 days is approximately when the shop will place the order so this is perfect!

what day shall we report?

Oh I am so in with you ladies.  I have about 10-15 lbs to lose and the stupid scale has been stuck on the same number for quite some time.  Great to have people to push you on.

I’m in!

I’ve already lost a pound in the past couple of days… I’ve been eating really badly before this, so it’s not a big surprise, haha. I have about 45-ish days to lose what I can! So basically… just trying to stay healthy and motivated!

I’m in too. I need 8-10 more pounds before my Nov. 7 wedding (holy geez…it’s really soon). I know I can do it -I just need a little push and a bit of accountability.

I’m in!  I’ve been working hard and the scale is NOT budging.  I’ve resolved to not get on the scale weekly, because it sets me back and kills my motivation.  I’d like to lose 20-30 before the wedding, with the most before January (when I plan to start dress shopping!)

Aw I’d do weigh-in with you all but I promised my sis I’d do it with her–we already started a bit ago! I’ll keep you all informed (and hopefully you’ll keep me motivated) with my progress though!

i’ll totally do it! i’ve been looking for exactly this!

‘ll report back on what i’ve done and if any inches have come off…. (but no WAY am i posting my weight and measurements on the worldwide web! is anyone doing that?)

so…. we report back here on Sunday?

i’ve been exercising every day: alternating yoga, a two-mile jog, and the “Wedding Workout” video from Women’s Health magazine. 

i haven’t weighed myself in literally years. so i’ll focus on inches. okay?

and, i need my butt whooped for the bad food habits i have! maybe writing down my progress here for the last few weeks will help me quit eating mashed potatoes every night.
