Winter Bootcamp for Losers

Okay, we are going to be getting tough once again here. No more mamby pambiness!(Thanks Lizzie for one of my favorite LC phrases!) No more excuses! We are going to run this challenge through January and February. 2 months! Long enough to see results. Short enough to stay tough! George Washington used the winter to prepare for action, we will too! No cuddling under our snuggies while we grow bigger! We will be shrinking and ready for the spring thaw!
The first weigh in will be tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 10th. The last will be Friday, February 28th. If you forget to weigh in, do so as soon as you can. If you prefer a different day to weigh in, that is fine too. We are a friendly, fun loving, supportive group, but we will be tough on each other to get results if needed!

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

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

Good Luck everyone!

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

thanks for letting me participate - my goal is to stay between 20-25 g carbs a day. I need all the help I can get. I have to lose this weight and keep it off. Feeling so huge and awkward now.

WE CAN DO IT!!!!

Thanks for the welcome!!!! I've had a frustrating last couple of days - bloated out, probably too much salt. I'm at a weight (284) that I've struggled to get through in the past, so I guess I need to be patient. But it's so hard for me. I guess I should be glad that I'm on day 9 and have lost 5 lbs.

Have a great LC day everyone!
