I couldn't smile in the first picture - the dress and belt was so tight I was having to suck in so hard I could barely concentrate on taking the picture

Hi all...Great job! I too have made my goal. I can fit into my size 10 jeans. Wasn't going to try them on, thought I wouldn't make it in them.I just thought what the *h* and tried them on. I have a small muffin top but they zipped right up! I will send pics later. Right now I am taking a short day trip to pick up bee supplies.Just one of my many farm adventures.

Great job all....

Does anyone want to start another challenge? Maybe for the 4th of July? That would give us some time to fit into something spectacular!!

Thanks Cindy! I can handle the not losing, it's the gaining in recent weeks that's got me in a panic. It took me over 12 wks. to lose 12 lbs. and only 1 week to regain half of it back.

I'm in for another challenge as long as you JUDDD ladies don't mind an Atkins crasher - The first time I joined I had no idea it was on the JUDDD forum until 3/4ths of the way into the challenge

Not a crasher at all. Many, many of us were Atkins babes. I was for 10 years, just couldn't go on without carbs for the rest of my life, lol.

Anna, You are looking great in that photo, those arms would suit me!

Kgirl well done you, you've done better than you thought. I wish I could load photos, I must try yet again!

That may also be why each and every time I get within 10 lbs. of my goal, I begin to sabotage myself. Like I did once again in recent weeks. I'm now up 7 lbs. from my low last month.

ETA: A photo of me wearing a sleeveless tank top this morning at 148 (again). My arms have been big my whole life. As a teenager, the boys use to call me "Wonder Woman"...
Your arms look great!! They are at least as small as mine, and more toned. Why wouldn't you go sleeveless? Go for it!

Wow!!! What a difference 10 lbs has made. Beautiful!

Hahahahhaha no way could I ever wear a bikini. I think I would try for something like a tanktop or sleeveless shirt. I don't care what size it is as long as my arms don't look like I'm going to fly away when I wave to someone LOL

You gals are the best!

Why we are all so hard on ourselves and self conscious? We should really try to focus more on our assets, and less on what we perceive as our short comings.

Oh, I'm so proud of my JUDDD buds. This challenge was fun. Everyone did great- even if the goal outfit wasn't a perfect fit.

I'm so envious of all you ladies with nice, toned, looking arms! I think mine would scare small children.
My actual arm is really puny, tiny, tiny, but loads of (yucky) skin.

How about if we start the new challenge on next Weds. or Thur., so it will be 12 wks. until July 4th?

As long as those of you in the UK & Canada don't mind, otherwise we can pick another end date?

Either day is fine with me. The 1st Day of Summer is June 21st, so that would be 11 wks. from today. That may work better for everyone internationally.

I'm up for either date. My challenge will be to get my arms in better shape I'd love to lose and inch from each arm at the flabbiest spot.

Me too! Last time I measured mine, they were 13"!

My goal for this summer will be to lose at least one inch and firm up my upper arms, to be comfortable wearing a sleeveless tank top tucked into my size 6 capri jeans!

I love Cathe's arms!

Well take heart. My upper thigh is a little over 25, and my hips are 45. My waist is a little under 35 and holding.
