Anyone Interested in a LIF Weight Loss Challenge/Contest?

I am in serious need of taking off a few (dozen) pounds before a wedding in a few months. I need some motivation and being that I am on this board a lot, I figured this was the best place to get support.

Would anyone be interested in doing the same and we can hold each other accountable?

The more the merrier!!

Re: Anyone Interested in a LIF Weight Loss Challenge/Contest?

Ok!! So this is how we can work it....

Let's take our starting weight today and we will check back in every few days to see who has lost anything. If you want to FM me your starting weight, or post it (or not tell at all), we can go by pounds lost and percentage lost overall compared to others.

This should be fun!

So - today I start out at an embarassing...206

I am 7 weeks PP and 13 weeks away from a important wedding, so I gotta lose this!!

Re: Anyone Interested in a LIF Weight Loss Challenge/Contest?

Last I checked I was 150lbs. I was 168 before DS was born 3 wks ago. I am 10 lbs from prePG, 25lbs from goal.

I will be slow to lose weight for a few wks b/c I am doing things REALLY light. But it's still motivation!

I am BF and walking on treadmill with DS in baby Bjorn to soothe him. I clock about 1-2 miles a day...my diet stinks b/c I am hungry all the time and DH and I are dealing with ds tummy issues so we are too busy/tired to cook and shop right now.

What's the reward? Other than a hot mamma... Chat Icon

Take your starting weight and I will check back again in a few days to see if anyone has lost a few pounds.

As incentive, anyone is welcome to do the mall walk on Monday (Smithhaven Mall) in the afternoon.

I'm in! I weighed in at 152 1/2 at the doc. last Thursday. I was 167 at the birth of DD. I am 17 1/2 pound from pre-pregnancy and 27 1/2 pounds from my goal weight.

I haven't done any exercise since Grace got sick. I hope she feels better so we can get a walk in tomorrow. Its supposed to be 75 here in LA tomorrow.
