Ha, my starting weight isn’t much different than my last starting weight. That will change this time! Anyway, I am starting at 161.2.
ETA: Oops forgot my goal and stuff 🙂 I am aiming to lose a pound a week. My ultimate goal is 135. My weight watchers goal is 136 so as soon as I get to 138 I can stop paying them again since I’m lifetime.
And other info about me: I’m 28 (not for long), work a sedentary job, live in AZ with my Fiance and dog, love the outdoors but not so much into exercising.

I’m determined to lose 5 lbs this month! Thanks for the chance to join! My starting weight is 160.8lb.
ETA: A little about myself… hmm…. Since meeting my Fiance two years ago I have gained 15 lbs and feel a bit self-conscious. Always being proud of my body (even without those 6 packs) and now having to buy a dress I am determined to lose the weight and go back to feel happy, healthy and confident! Can’t wait to be party of this! My total goal weight by the end of March is 145lb, so we will see how this goes 🙂

I’m at 185.4 which is up from the last competition but I’m telling myself it’s muscle and not the two buttermilk biscuits I ate last night.

I’ll join 🙂 My starting weight is 155. I’d love to be 130 for the wedding- 5lbs a month is possible, right?
Anyone have any exercise plans that aren’t too strenuous for beginners like me? (I’m also just plain weak, haha.)

I’m 5′ and 138lbs I really want to get to 120-125 for our wedding on 3.31.12
I started at 213lbs about 1.5 years ago and these last few pounds are really stubborn : (
I’ve been eating 1000-1200 calories a day but all good food nothing that would make me feel like I’m dying of starvation.
Good luck everyone!!!!

eekkk ok so I usually lurk but I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. I am at 171.4 right now and I’m looking to loose around 7-10 lbs a month. final goal would be to get down around 130 to 125. I’m really excited about this.. I need motivation to do this and this is exactly what I’ve been needing. I’m a baker so the hardest part is to not bring treats home…>.<

oooh, can I join?!
My current weight is 162.5. I’m 33 and TTC right now, so I don’t want to try to lose too much during the TWW (two week wait) but I DO really want to lose during the first 2 weeks of my cycle. 145-150 is my happy weight, so I’d love to get back there unless I get pregnant first!
This week is a waiting week, so I’m going to aim to lose .5 – 1 lb. More importantly, I aim to a) buy a George Foreman grill b) buy a crockpot c) choose healthy receipes for the week d) go grocery shopping and buy lots of healthy goodies e) got to a class at my gym near home f) join my gym near work and g) drink at least 4 bottles of water per day (I’m terrible with this)! 🙂
I’ve been married for 3 months, but we’ve been living together for a couple of years. My eating habits have been horrible lately and I got out of the habit of going to the gym when I was in a car accident in July. However, I actually work at a weight management center and I need get my act together! 🙂
@Porkchop: Wow! Congratulations on your progress! Have you been doing much strength training? That is great for boosting your metabolism. Also changing up your exercise routine can help with those stubborn last pounds.
@galloway111: Are you getting any physical activity right now? What do you like to do? What do you have access to (gym, pool, etc?)
