I hope I can wear something in size 14P by then. I don't have anything now, but if I buy something in advance, I'll take before pics.

I really, really, really would love to be close to goal by then. However, I would at least like to be comfortably in size 8s by then. I think I can! I am comfortably in 10s now and was even able to get one of my old size 8 Gap jeans on (and buttoned) this morning. Of course, the other 3 pairs were laughable, but still!

If I am just comfortable in my skin by then, life will be great!

Ooooh, Carly, great question/challenge. By July 4th 2013, I am hoping to be at down another 15 pounds. That would put me more than half way to my goal weight of 125. At that point, I would be able to wear 75% of the clothes in my closet (with the exception of jeans most of my clothes are either size 2 or 4). That is a really big deal as I can only wear a few things without stretching them out these days.

I hope to be in my favorite size 10 jeans by July 4th. I'm in a 14 now. I'd have to be about 165 or so (I was 181.6 this morning) so I'm pretty hopeful.

My goal is size 6 Levis 515s with no muffin top. I tried some on today and the butt and legs fit perfectly but all my squish was squishing over the waist.

I almost bought them as "goal" pants but couldn't justify the expense when I'm technically at goal.

I want to weigh 165 lbs or less by July 4th. Fit comfortably into my old size 10 jeans. And fit very comfortably in 2 dresses that are both size 12. I have already taken pictures of me wearing the dresses, but will have to post tomorrow since I'm on the wrong computer. I'm very much looking forward to this challenge! This is the first challenge I have ever taken part in here

Welcome back Carly & thanks for starting the new challenge thread!

By the 4th of July, I will be maintaining my goal weight range of 135-138 lbs. and be comfortably wearing size 6 capri jeans, sleeveless shirts & a tankini bathing suit outside in broad daylight.

Best wishes everybody for continued progress towards all of your goals!

So now the arms are public

I hope I can make some significant change. My biceps are fairly strong since I move my whole body with my arms since I had my spine fuse 4 yrs ago. I hope some tricep exercises will help that under flab

Carly, they don't look horrible at all! Mine are similar, and as long as I don't have to hail a cab (which isn't likely here in central CA), I'm not worried about them.

Well, I only hail cabs when I'm in the city, but they really don't look the way I'd like, but the challenge will help motivate me to at least try what I can to make some improvements.

Carly, are you able to do dips?

Sit on the edge of a solid chair and hold the front edge of the seat on both sides of your body. Your knuckles should be facing forward, not turned to the sides. Plant your feet firmly on the floor.

Push yourself off the seat and lower your buttocks below it until your arms form a 90-degree angle. Then, push yourself back up to the starting position, but make sure not to lock your elbows. Repeat 10 times x 3 sets.

Carly, you made me think your arms were truly scary, and they are not at all! (I would be thrilled to have your arms ... could show you mine and make you feel a whooooole lot better) I look forward to seeing them again with toning and just three more months of time at your goal size.

I think I can do that. I need a sturdy chair that won't slide.

I want to tone my arms also and be able to wear sleeveless or those shirts with the tiny sleeves that do not cover anything (I hate when I find a cute t-shirt but can't wear it because of those crummy sleeves!!!). I am using the arm machines at the gym about 3 times a week so hopefully that will help.

Carly, your arms aren't scary!! Well they look similar to mine - and mine are looking better than they did a couple of weeks ago (with no exercise).

When asked for my personal challenge, my mind went blank, as I have no outstanding goal, other than to establish successful maintenance, however that might look. So, thank you for inspiration Dawn.

Here goes: I want to STILL be at goal and hopefully the remains of my spare tyres will have evaporated and muffin tops a thing of the past.

Thanks for starting the challenge Carly. Should keep me on track!

I have a weight bench that has been collecting dust in the garage, and it would be perfect for dips. I'm thinking about bringing it inside and dusting it off. I bet there are tons of exercises that could be done using a weight bench.

I'm sure there are. We have hard wood floors so I don't want the chair to go sliding. I also don't want to mess up the paint by putting the chair against the wall.

I'm thinking about using the sofa...

Carly, could you put a cushion or a mat between the chair and the wall, to protect the paint?
