Summertime Lose 4 week challenge

Hot temps are here and our troops want to look hot! Let's melt some pounds away while fighting the carb assaults that come with summer. We still want to be the hottest platoon on the beach!

The first weigh in will be Friday, June 6th. Our last weigh in will be Friday, July 4th. We have 4 weeks to melt some fat! This takes us to the 4th of July....a possible heavy carb assault! Let's get to a good position to take it on!

If you forget to weigh in, do so as soon as you can. We are a friendly, fun loving, supportive group, but we are ready to kick booty if you need it!

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.

Think about your goals and how you are going to reach them? What has worked, and what do you need to chuck to do it his time.

LET'S MOVE IT TROOPS! Skimpy uniform season is here! :blush:

Good Luck everyone!

"Sarge"

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

Lizzie, would never mind you stepping in. Feel free to if I stray

Yes, crazy at work. Trying to get things finalized, etc. on top of tht, caught a dreaded head cold that moved to the chest just when you think you are safe. Blaming the bus ride with sick people! Ughhh!

Welcome aboard Cruzer28! You picked a great group! Yes, the first couple are the hardest. You have lots of veterans here to help you out!

You and I both, Janice!

Deb, you help it to be great!

I'll join if you don't mind: I'm in another 4th of July challenge- but no set weight ins- I like the idea of having a set day to weigh in every week. I will be on vacation end of June- but it can't hurt to kick it into gear between now and the 4th.

My goal: 10 lb loss! single digit 200's...

I'm not sure how you want to do the weigh ins, but as of this morning I'm at..............
216.4. Which is actually lower than I've been seeing recently and lower than I've seen in a while. I'm ready. I generally 'weigh in' for my tracking purposes on Monday. It will be interesting to see how that is different from a Friday weigh in.

Happy Saturday!!

My goal was to stick to my eating plan. So far I have even though I was tempted twice yesterday with friends eating with me that ordered french fries. They were my weakness before starting Atkins and I still want them when I smell them. But I didn't give in!
