The Peanut Butter Egg Battle IV

Here we go again!

With only a bit over 6 weeks to go before Easter and the seasonal weapon of carb snipers, the chocolate covered peanut butter egg, we are enlisting soldiers to head with me into the Peanut Butter Egg Battle.

We will be once again faced with carb sniping saboteurs wielding Peanut Butter Eggs, ninja marshmallow peeps, and kamikaze chocolate bunnies aiming sprays of jelly bean fire at us to name just a few. Chocolate cream filled land mines have already been spotted. Are you up for this challenge? If so, enlist ASAP.

Don't worry though, the mess hall will have plenty of hard boiled eggs for all!

The first weigh in will be this Friday, March 7th. The last will be Friday, April 25th. That last weigh in should keep us from raiding baskets!

If you forget to weigh in, do so as soon as you can. We are a friendly, fun loving, supportive group!

Hoping to get reenlistments, and all new enlistments are welcome as well!

Join our group if you're looking for fun and support on your journey!

Everyone is welcome no matter what plan you are on!!! We are all here to support your weightloss journey. Any A.W.O.L. members from past challenges will be given full pardon. We also welcome veterans/maintainers

So, enjoy your weekend, and then: LET'S MOVE IT TROOPS! Skimpy uniform season is coming! Doesn't feel or look like it is here, but we know it will be!

Good Luck everyone!

"Sarge"

Thanks and prayers for those that have served or are serving us in the real military.

It will be a tough battle, but we can win!

Tea out of nose! That's what we do best!

Yes, I think goals would be good!

Not demoting any troops. Can't do that when I myself have been drug into the enemy camps too many times lately. .

Angry with self! Not sure why I allow this to occur. got some deep thinking to do here. But, for the moment, I have to get tough! Need to knock this poundage aside! Bam! Powww! Zap!

Who is with me?!

We are going to beat up the Easter Bunny and hold him hostage until the Sarge gives an order to let him go?

AWOL member here. I skipped the last challenge entirely and slinked away from the one before that, so I had to do some serious soul- searching as to why I undid all the losses I worked so hard for last year. I blamed external forces (got slammed with extra stress at work and a back injury at the same time) but of course eating the wrong foods made everything worse. Why do I have to keep learning this lesson over and over??? Probably because sugar has had such a powerful hold on me all my life.

Anyway, I've missed the group and am ready for battle. I gave up processed sugar for lent, all forms of it--started weaning myself off it last week and started induction on Tuesday. Of course I feel better already: better sleep, better mood, clearer thinking.

Respectfully requesting that pardon Sarge.

The challenge is easy....... Fend off attacks from all the holiday-carb-candy and support each other doing it.
You can post your goals, too.

Just cut and paste the chart into your post, add your name, and then each week add your weight...

Sarge runs a tight ship, so no messing around.....
Here are the bunks for the new recruits.....

Count me in

Joining in the fun. One of those delicious pink bunnies got me yesterday at work. A coworker brought in a wonderfully aged package (we both prefer them stale) from approx 2008/2009. managed to keep it to one.

I've been doing pretty good after I got away from the Christmas cookies. Looking to loose 2+ pounds by April 25. Weigh in 129.4 this morning.

Hello Kitty, and Gals!

I'm back, and need a pardon from exiting the last challenge before final weigh in. Seem to be sliding the wrong way, despite fighting the good fight (nearly) every day...... I turn 35 on April 18th-I feel like I'm still 20-made a goal to get back under 170 before then. May have to starve myself, but they say nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

177 this morning
