I didn't make my goal... but I checked the scale this morning and it isn't an official weigh in day but I am down some :) Closer to goal but still not there... Been a rough few weeks food wise for me with this weird training schedule.

Anyone have any thoughts on what the next challenge should be?

Surprisingly, after being naughty at a wedding this weekend, I managed to somehow lose 4 pounds! I have no idea how, but it feels great! So, currently weighed at 146 this morning, but am waiting for the "official" weight on Friday. We'll see if I can hit that 145 extra-hard-and-go-getter-ish goal by the 31st emoticon

By appreciating your blessings, and focusing on the positive, you can be happy right now, at this moment! So stop waiting for future happiness when it can be yours today!

Well, I've had a bad couple of weeks and have actually gained weight. I'm back up to 214 consistently now. I don't think I'll make my goal of 210 by October 31st. I'll still try but doubt I can lose 4 lbs in one week. Good luck to all those still on track!

Well we had a bad food day today because it is our "day off" once a week, but hubby and I are deciding to make our day off every other Sunday now. Truly committing to the lifestyle changes I believe. I had lunch and it was terribly bad for me and I'll tell you right now, I'm already hungry....it was really high in bad bad carbs. So, I looked at him (as he put chocolate chip cookies in the oven to cook) and said, that sounds like a great idea. Tonight at the hospital is the beginning of 2 weeks with consistancy. We can do this.

Good job, congratulations!! I've really been messing up this month. But I'm gonna try my hardest to get my exercise in, my walking in, and a good diet. I dont want to screw up again.

HI-
Halloween is just around the corner, and I've been with spark for a year now and just am now finding the PCOS group, what a tard I am. Anyhow, since I'm at 194 as of today, why don't I say 185 (a hard goal) by Halloween. I always shoot a tiny bit over what is really possible so I'm more motivated.

Haven't been on the board in a while, but liked the look of this challenge! I was originally hoping to be at 150 by Halloween, but I might have already met this, hopefully the scale isn't playing tricks on me :)

My official weigh-in is Friday, and if the scale says 150, I want my NEW Halloween goal to be 145 pounds. I have really kicked my workout regime up a notch and am eating more (which helps my metabolism a lot), so it is absolutely possible!

If I get to 145 by Halloween, that would mean I'm only about 10 pounds from my ultimate goal!

Way to go everyone! I like this challenge

I weighed in on Saturday and was down another two pounds so I'm that much closer to my Halloween goal of 10 pounds lost! It took me 3 weeks or so to lose those 2 pounds. I hope it doesn't take me as long to lose another two pounds. It might though and that is okay as long as it is going down!

I kicked my challenge up a knotch by making one of my own with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law. We each bet $10 and the person to loose the most weight by Halloween gets the $30. Pretty motivating. I can get me a nice pair of shoes with that money. :-)

I hope everyone's doing really good with their challenge. I know I'm always thinking about it because I actually want to complete this challenge this time.

I haven't weighed emoticon myself yet, but I will sometime this week and I'll let you know my progress.

I'd like to be at 209 by Halloween! I actually started working on the weight loss in August when I started at 220 lbs so that would be 11 lbs by the end of October. Little goals are best for me right now. If I think about all I need to lose, I get discouraged.

Realistic goals are the best kind. I think my goal is pretty realistic as well. I have my Halloween Challenge poster up on my refrigerator. It's a sweet, sweet reminder because I put a picture of a fat, ugly witch on one side and a sexy, naughty witch on the other side to give me more visual accountability.

We can do this!! I'm so excited about this challenge.

Hmmm... I will be realistic and say my goal is 270 as opposed to something wild since I'm just getting back into all this. :D

I'm in as well. I'd like to be down to 210 by Halloween, and exercising at least 3x a week. Good luck everyone!

PS: I've been walking a mile every other day during lunch, and it's making a huge difference for me - I actually have more energy when I get back to the office. If anyone has the opportunity at work, do it!

I would like to join! I think I will just sign up to lose 10 pounds by then, that would put me into the 250's. It's about 9 weeks from now and a little more than pound a week is do-able! (I hope! LOL)

Since I've met my Labor Day challenge goal, I'm going to go for a Halloween challenge goal. Since I'm going to be in Hawaii over Halloween, I'm not sure if I'll have access to a scale (maybe at the grocery store?) but I'm hoping to be 149 by Halloween!

Not sure what my goal for this challenge will be... I will think about it and get back to you!! I am currently part of the Labor Day Challenge so I might finish that one up before deciding for a goal for this one. Also, after the Labor Day one finishes up I will move this one up to the sticky spot.

So just checking in... how is everybody doing on their goals? I had a bad weekend and weighed in on Monday instead of Sunday, but I still lost another pound. I am at 304.4 currently. I have worked out 1 time this week but it was an amazing workout; I wrote a blog about it. Anyways, I want to lose at least 2 pounds this week. Good luck everyone!

Hi all I'm new to this group. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 2 months ago, but enough about me. Anyone interested in a Halloween challenge? If so post how much, be it percentage lost, weight lost, body measurements, whatever, you want to lose by Halloween. We can scare all the kids by getting thinner and healthier. Ok, I'm starting, I want to weigh 275 by Halloween. That is 30 pounds.
