XMAS CHALLENGE!!!

Post  kizzykay on Wed Nov 02, 2011 7:15 pm

How is everyone doing after dreaded Halloween??? I know I suffered BADLY lol. I think it would be an awesome idea to start up a new challenge from now until Christmas Day! There is no better present to receive on Christmas than being 20 or even 30 pounds lighter, right?!?! Now there are no rules for there this challenge, minus the fact that you have to keep this thread active! So if you are joining the challenge post here with your current weight and goal weight for the challenge. You could even add a non-weight goal for the challenge if you want! Here's mine:

CW: 235
GW (for challenge): 210
Non-weight goal: To have my favorite pair of work pants be looser and not leave a dent in my skin LOL

Also if you can at least post what you ate each day. It might help someone else out who has no clue what kind of 5 bite meals they can eat. Post your daily struggles here, post questions... ANYTHING! We're in this together!

I'm all for that challenge! Right now I'm 148.0 due to that darn gain, so my goal for xmas is to be 135 and be in a size 8 comfortably Smile right now I'm a comfy 10 so I think it's totally doable.

I post my daily meals in my journal on here but I will definitely check in here daily as well Smile how many days until xmas do we have? 53 I think? so that is what a little over 7 weeks? oh yeah, I'm excited, I think that goal is totally doable for sure. Let the countdown begin! Smile

I just installed a countdown widget on my phone lol so now it will remind me that there is 53 days until xmas, something visual to keep me motivated, I'm so excited!!
So if we hit goal by xmas we definitely need to reward ourselves for our hard work.. what non food reward do you all want?? I think I want a mini shopping spree at my favorite home interior store so I can redecorate another room in our home.. I want to create a home library so I need stuff! LOL so that is mine, yours?

OK, I'm in

Post  LLJames on Thu Nov 03, 2011 1:04 am

I'm 5'7 and a half. I started out over 150 about 3 weeks ago. I am now 140. I want to be 130 by the end of November. My dream is to be 125. Realistically guys, I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I'm always hungry. Shocked

I hope everyone succeeds.

Today I had a Snickers for lunch and a milkyway for dinner I put in my journal that my reward would probably be a new phone. If I go frum now to Thanksgiving with no slip ups. If I get to my goal by Christmas and maintain 150 I may. Get myself a new bow. My wife and I live on a budget and we budget for lunches. I've acutely ben putting the money that I save by doing this diet away fore a long time and because I eat out almost every day it has added up to about 700 bucks it would be cool to get a new bow all with money that I saved by eating less
Very Happy another benefit of this diet

If you don't mind me asking jesabelle, what size are those jeans? I'm hoping to be in a smaller size as well, can't wait!

dmac your rewards sound awesome!! a new phone then a new bow, great choices and all that money you are saving!!! I don't know if we are saving money or not. I have 4 kids that eat like grown men it seems so I'm still buying 150-200 bucks worth of food a week.

For my thanksgiving rewards I think I'm gonna reward myself with a barnes and nobles gift card, for at least 100 bucks.. I'm always reading on my Nook and have a wish list a mile long of new books I want so that would make me very happy!!! Then for xmas I want the room makeover, to make our sitting room with the fireplace into a home library. Somewhere pretty and quiet to read or lounge or the kids to do their homework. So I'll need everything from paint to built in book cases so I'm excited Smile

Size 28= 6. I always get confused with those jean izes. I normally take sizes 28-30 in to the fitting room and most of the time it depends on the designer. I have had a pair of 28 jeans on and tried on a 28 from another designer and couldn't get them past my hips and then the next store had a 28 and they were a bit baggy, Laughing My poor husband can't win when he tries to buy me jeans for a gift. I tell him to stick with shoes because the size stays the same regardless of my size fluctuations Shocked

L-5 bites bean and cheese buritto
D-3 bites steak with sauteed mushrooms 2 bites garlic mashed potatoes.

Tonight was one of those nights that I really wanted more than 2 bites of the mashed potatoes. I had to put the leftovers away as soon as everyone was served because I didn't think that I was going to make it if they sat there and stared at me.

Oh I know what you mean jesabelle! I had that steak with mac n cheese yesterday and I sure could have finished off the entire bowl of mac n cheese, LOL but for me I combine my bites so I get 5 bites of everything, so I put the steak and mac n cheese on a spoon together to be a combined bite so I get all my flavors 5 times, it works for me, LOL especially on meals like that you just enjoy so much!

I definitely want to be a part of this challenge. I'll be starting tomorrow since I'm just getting over being sick.

Spryng - do you have iPhone? What count down app did you download?
