It’s that time again! I’m in the home stretch to the wedding and I need to get my butt moving again, so TBL is back!
Rules/Changes since the last thread:
– The thread is moving from the full figured board to the fitness board.
– Weigh-In’s have changed! I will post the weigh in thread on Friday nights at about 4pm PST and you have all weekend to weigh-in with the weekly winner announced on Monday mornings!
– I will calculate the winner based on weight loss percentage.
– This competition will last 4 weeks. Any longer and people will usually start to drop off pretty quickly!
– I’m going to continue to provide a weekly exercise challenge (in honor of Ms. Tattoo!)
The purpose of these threads is to provide support to our fellow bees that are trying to slim down and bee healthy. Please check-in frequently and share everything that you are doing. I encourage you to share workout routines, meal plans, recipes, etc. Anything that you think will help other bees out!
If you’d like to sign-up please respond to this thread with your starting weight and a little bit of info about yourself and what your goals are! If you’d like to keep your weight private, you can PM me your information.
Good Luck Everyone!

Yay! I haven’t exercised in nearly two months, so I needed this kick in the pants. I ended up losing a few pounds right after my wedding. At first I thought it was massive dehydration from the wedding day, but after a few weeks I’m thinking my muscle mass probably all melted away 🙁
Starting weight: 144.2.
Thanks for starting this up again mittens!

How are you going to calculate weight loss percentage?
Also SUPER glad these threads are back. Earlier this week I was considering PMing you, Mittens, and begging you to start them back up.
My starting weight is 192.0!

I will totally join with yall!! I’m Brooke, btw… new to Wedding Bee but ran across this post and had to join! I’m totally embarrassed to say I’m currently 292lbs at 5’8″….. however I have been walking everyday this past week and lifting weights. I’ve actually lost 5lbs already. Id like to lose at least 50 (if not more) before my April wedding. This may just be what I need for extra support! I hope its ok if I join you girls!

YAY! I’m so excited this thread is back! Just the other day I was thinking of PMing @mittens111211 to see when it would be starting up again! I can’t believe so few people are joining 🙁 That’s ok we can be a super close group of weight loss buddies 🙂 My starting weight is 215 🙁 But I am happy to say that just this last week I lost 7 lbs! Oh yeah! My goal for this week is 6 lbs! And I want to lose 50 overall before the wedding!
So what is the exercise challenge for this week?

I’m a waiting bee, so no wedding yet, but I do have a visit coming up to try to look and feel great for. I’ve been trying to get into a regular exercise routine for the first time in years, and work on the healthy eating part of the equation, too. There’s definitely weight I could afford to lose and I hope that trying to be healthier will help me get rid of some of it, though I don’t really have a goal number. Y’all seem like a great group that might help me stay on track. Can I join in?

- Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat
I’ll join! My IRL friends are all lazy lol. I’m 5’0 and *gulp* 150 lbs. The biggest challenge for me is my waist. I’m not starting today because I’m hungover…

Yay!! I am glad this thread is back. I am back in it. I got married a month ago and have put back on 5 or so pounds since the wedding. I am starting at 189.6 with a goal of getting to 164 eventually. I lost 30 pounds pre wedding…. 25ish to go.
Post # 13
This thread sounds like a great idea to me!
143.6 is my starting weight.
I’d like to eventually be 125 again. (My high school weight)
I have 189 days to get it done!

YAY! Sooo glad this is back. I gotta weigh myself tomorrow morning though. I will post in the AM 🙂
THanks Mittens for doing this.
@JsDragonfly: Bee’s are the only ppl that know my weight too! I would never tell anyone else LOL 😉

I will join! This is a great idea. I’m not engaged yet but I know it’s coming, most likely in the spring, so I would like to slim down a bit. And by “a bit” I mean I want to lose 43 pounds. Eeeek. A 4-week challenge will help get me started, hopefully!
Starting weight: 178
Goal weight: 135
I was at 160 this time last year, but then I quit my waitressing job, and since I wasn’t running around on my feet for 8 hours without a break, I gained weight pretty quickly. And now it’s time for it to go away, because I’m tired of seeing it where it has no right to be 😀
Good luck to all the participating bees!

I need to do something, hoping this will help ???
I weigh apx. 187, disgusting. I am 5’5″. I really tried to lose weight for the wedding, and did get down to 184 from 194 so that was a start but then it creeps back up so easily. I want to be 160 ish. And I have high cholesterol 🙁 Soda is my biggest problem and the laziness of not wanting to cook.
I am in!
