Meeeee. I’m not happy with my body at all!! My challenge will end a week earlier because I will be in Europe on Jan 3rd so I’ll just have the day I leave the states be the end of the challenge.

Stats:

5’2 and 151 pounds

Challenge goal weight: 130

Ultimate goal weight: ~115

Game plan: do a lifting workout (think Crossfit light) twice a week, yoga twice a week, and start running – start out twice a week for 20 minutes and increase time/distance/number of runs gradually. (When it starts getting too cold, I may switch to 30DS rather than running for a while. Not really sure what to do about that.)

Game plan part two: Be consistent with my intake!!!!! I am planning on eating about 1400 calories across the board. I won’t eat more on workout days or less on rest days.

I’m in. I’ve started a few times and then fizzled out, but I want to try again. 

Stats:

5’3 and 162 lbs

Challenge goal weight: 136 lbs (2 lbs/ wk) – though if I don’t make that it’s ok, as long as I’m making pretty consistent progress

Ultimate goal weight: 120 lbs

Game plan: Exercising at least a little each day (increasing as I get more in shape) and 1200 calories/ daily

Thanks for starting this!

I’m in! My wedding is the 4th of January so that is a perfect finishing date!! 

My current weight is 141lbs and I’d like to be 120/125lbs by then so hoping it’s enough time and I’m 5’3 

Have done my meal prep for tomorrow so it’s now or never! 

We can do this!!

I’m in! I’ll be done with my first go the Sunday before Christmas though, started two weeks ago, but I’m game! Some accountability will help me from having my “workout mojo” fizzle.

Currently I Flux between 130-133 on a daily basis. I’m not so much trying to lose weight, as trying to lose inches, I want to lose fat and gain muscle.

I’m 5″3

Don’t have  goal lbs to lose per week, but I’m starting at a 27-28″ waist, roughly 38″ hip, and 34″ bust.

Goal weight by the end? Anywhere between 120-130 is fine. Closer to 130 as long as my waist is about a 24-25″. By the end of this cycle hopefully!

I would love to join!! I only want to lose about 5-7 lbs but I really need to start eating clean and reducing the amount of bad food I’m eating on a very regular basis. I’ve gotten into the “treat yourself” mentality.

My stats

Height: 5″5 and a half 

Current Weight: 125.6 lbs

Goal weight: 119-120 lbs

Game plan: Continue working out 5-6 times a week ( a mix of spin biking, Pilates and Kayla Itsines). Eat breakfast every morning! Smaller poptions at dinner. Not eating 600 calories of junk (ice cream, chocolate, pie, cookies)at 9 pm then not eating pretty much all day and completing the cycle again the next night. I’m okay exceraise wise but I’m totally sabotaging any exercise I do with my diet. My Fiance has been a bad influence! I need a diet overhaul

I’m in!   I actually started trying to lose weight a year ago, and so far have shed off 15 lbs.  This summer really threw me off with so much traveling; I gained back 5 of what I lost before.  I actually really like how my body looks and feels now (it doesn’t jive with the actual lb weight) but it would be cool to lose some more weight before getting married in July, and eventually before kids put some of the weight back on! 

I also go more by measurements than weight because I gain/lose water weight really quickly.

My stats:

Age: 33 (cause, whoa, metabolism did me no favors after 31)

Height: 5′ 7″

Current weight: 162.6 lbs

Current measurements: 36″B, 31″ W, 42″ H

Body Fat %: 27%

Goal weight on 1/3/16: 152 lbs ( 10 lb loss)

Goal weight overall: somewhere between 140 – 145, hopefully by next summer.  

Game plan: Currently play soccer 2 or 3 nights a week (fitbit says I average about 8 miles/day with soccer).  Adding to that upper body/back 1X week, lowerbody 1X/week, and stretching everyday.  When soccer ends, I’m switching to HIITs. This is in addition to adding a lot more veggies to the diet and doing another sugar cutback.  The real trick for me is keeping active once the soccer season ends in Nov.  Slow and steady, no quick losses for me πŸ™‚

I am so in! I’m an aussie bee so here are my stats in metric units

Height: 171 cm

Current Weight: 78 kg

Challenge Goal Weight: 70 Kg

Ultimate goal weight: 62 Kg

Game plan: Limiting caloric intake to 1200 (increasing for workout days). Cardio workout at least 3 times a week, tracking progress visually using an app called Weight Track. I’m hoping that as I lose weight, i’ll tone up and gain muscle which would be more noticeable in pictures. πŸ™‚

I’m gonna try to stay in this! As another poster mentioned sometimes these threads get too popular and it’s too hard to keep track.

Height: 5 4

Current weight:155

Ultimate goal weight: 130

Aiming to lose at least 2 lbs/week, as I need to go dress shopping asap!

I started the 21 day fix 2 weeks ago, but I’ve been really halfassing it. So my goal is to follow the plan more rigorously, especially with the workouts. Supposed to do them 7 days a week and I’ve been doing them more like 2.

I’m in–have to do something here! I’ve gained 40+ lbs on steroids for illness the past couple of years. I didn’t weigh this much when I gave birth to my children. 

I’m an old Bee, and 183 at 5’7″. Goal by New Year’s Day–160. 

Game plan: eat clean, stop cheating on the gluten (it doesn’t like me) and other stress eating, make sure I have healthy food in the house at all times, cut alcohol consumption, keep a food log, get on the scale at least a few times a week, and move–walk, Zumba, etc.
