Flying Past Our Bewitching Weight 2013
 
Here it is...our new thread and a new challenge. Summer is over and it's time to lose these pounds before the holidays hit!

This challenge is open to everyone, the more the merrier!
It will run from September 1st to October 31st.

State your goals, check in daily to report how you're doing, what you're eating,or just come in for support.

We're ALL always more successful when everyone is active in the thread, so let's help each other out!

Weigh in is optional, but I'll definitely be weighing in every week this time. Add yourself to the chart if you want to weigh in, and just ignore the chart if you don't want to weigh in. No pressure. lol

FF.....186

FatFatnomore 09-01-2013 05:56 AM

Ok ladies...I finally weighed in this morning. I'm about 11 pounds more than I weighed in May. *sob*

That's ok, I'm totally in the zone now so hopefully that weight will melt off during this challenge.

I'm hoping to lose at least 15 pounds during this challenge. Fingers crossed.

We can do it Beach. We've done it before, we can do it again. :shake:

Plus, I think it's imperative to get some weight off before the holidays or else we're gonna feel even worse after Thanksgiving and Christmas. We still have plenty of time to lose it before the food festivities hit us. :D

GailyGail 09-01-2013 07:08 AM

I would love to join if that is okay with you ladies!

FatFatnomore 09-01-2013 07:09 AM

:welcome: GailyGail! We'd love to have you join us!

beachagain 09-01-2013 07:47 AM

:welcome: Gail :shake:

yeah FF...haha...I agree....this is the best time of the year
I really want to change things right now

Low Carb Librarian 09-01-2013 08:19 AM

Hey all. Goal this challenge is to be in the 160's... Anywhere...

9/1: 173.2

RiotGirl08 09-01-2013 09:48 AM

BOO!

RiotGirl08 09-01-2013 10:01 AM

Well, well, well. Look what the cat dragged in, eh? :D

I'm HEEEEEEEEEERE... kicking and screaming. No promises on how long I'll be here or how often, though hahaha.

But really. Never been so busy before in my life. The upside of that is it's helped me shed some LB'S!!

Was all the way up to 234 :stars: (gained 40 on the dumb Depo I was on for a year). Finally got off of that, last shot was at the end of March, and I'm down 20 pounds so far in the last 6-8 weeks. Haven't kept a close record of weigh ins/ dates. Last time I weighed was Friday morning and I was 214.

I'm not really on a plan other than my appetite is no longer craycray now that I'm off the Depo, so I guess just basic calorie restriction for now. No exercise. I have every intention, and even bought an elliptical to keep my lonely treadmill company, but meh. Just too tired most days to trek downstairs.

I'll try to at least stop in for weigh in weekly!

kittycitygirl 09-01-2013 10:01 AM

I'm here!

Amity228 09-02-2013 04:12 AM

Morning,

Drinking some coffee then off to workout.

Be back later.

Yaaaayyyyy!!!!! So glad you're back Riot!!! :hugs::hugs::hugs:

FatFatnomore 09-02-2013 05:48 AM

Morning!

Amity, I'm drinking my morning coffee too. ;)

Last week I ordered sugar free pumpkin syrup, and I've been having that in my coffee the last few days and it's soooo good. Tastes just like a pumpkin spice latte. Minus the 400 calories in the normal one. ll

What does everyone have on the agenda for Labor Day?

Today I'll be eating sugar free jello...and grilled chicken breast for dinner. :)

FatFatnomore 09-02-2013 05:50 AM

Oh, I have to tell you guys...yesterday I decorated the house for Autumn. Then, because it was like 100 degrees outside, I cranked the air conditioner temp waaaayyyy down, put on my uggs, made my pumpkin spice coffee, and pretended I still live in a cold climate. I miss Fall. :(

GailyGail 09-02-2013 06:25 AM

I love Fall too! And I love that you decorated your house for autumn. I am getting ready to go for a long walk in the rain (boo) and then off to a lunch with girlfriends to celebrate my birthday which is tomorrow. I intend to stay on plan-- chopped grilled chicken salad and one low carb cocktail!

FatFatnomore 09-02-2013 06:30 AM

Happy Birthday Gail!!!!!

Good job getting your walk in. I need to do that today too.

Have a fabulous time with your friends at lunch!

Amity228 09-02-2013 08:02 AM

Happy Bday Gail

Breakfast - eggs, sausage and guacamole,coffee

To stay on plan i might have to eat a ton of LC foods in the beginning

The weather here is terrible one word humidity. Made working out unbearable. But got through it.

beachagain 09-02-2013 08:02 AM

Amity, at least you have the promise of Fall to come soon! All I have is the fake Autumn that I create inside my house. lol

RiotGirl08 09-02-2013 11:28 AM

Well, I have cramps.

That's all.

FatFatnomore 09-02-2013 11:30 AM

Low Carb Librarian 09-02-2013 04:50 PM

Who knows. I'm still so messed up. No TOM for monthssssss from the shot (the big pro) then after the Essure I had a solid 3 weeks nonstop and another 3 weeks of constant spotting, starting the end of June. Then nothing for the last 3-4 weeks. Thankfully. I will be glad to get back on a "normal" cycle. Never thought I would say that.

I'll definitely check in tomorrow. Night all

oldafw 09-03-2013 04:06 AM

I am here. I have been running a lot and no weight loss but I feel much stronger. I havent seen muscle in a year. Now I can sort of make out a quad.
9/1 142
Goal for September 135

:hyst::hyst::hyst::rofl::rofl::rofl:

Thank you for that laugh! lol

I really need to start running again, but I swear it made me fatter. For one thing I was hungry ALL THE TIME...and then I think I was just building muscle under the fat and my clothes were getting tighter. I need to some all this fat first.

tttmom 09-03-2013 07:24 AM

Good morning! I'll join! I would like to lose about 17 pounds by Oct 31. This would bring me to about 140. I'll check in often, looking forward to this! Have a great day everyone!

Low Carb Librarian 09-03-2013 07:53 AM

Good morning!

Lost .2 of a pound bringing me to 173.0.
Going down SLOWLY....
I will totally flip out if(no, WHEN) I get into the 160's. I have been trying to get out of the 170's for years.
:(

Hope you all are doing well today.
