Of course! The more the merrier! I started this thread on the 22nd... so at the time it was 15 weeks. I better hope for a pound down tomorrow morning! Walked the neighborhood today, met a new friend, so happy!

Kal- I have been losing weight for a good year, and most weeks I am lucky to lose a half of a pound. Thanks to Fitday and seeing it graphed it keeps me motivated, and a pound a week is a HUGE goal for me too. Something I need all your help keeping me accountable. If I am doing it for me and for us it will keep me going!

That on top of the gym earlier? -sigh- I guess I really have no excuse not to get my butt to the gym, then. I was thinking of letting myself slide as a walked a bit over five and a half miles earlier, but with the goal time frame I guess I really have no room to slack.
Out it is! Best of luck to all of you, as well.

I think I am going to join this one. I will update my sign when my New Years goal is out on Monday. This feels more do-able for me than the 10% goals considering my current weight.

I will be starting on 1/2 since my official weigh days are Mondays and I will end the day after Easter 4/9.

Yup Torre, just the fact that I got out there and walked was good. just 2.5 miles no biggie... 42 minutes, about the time it takes for my clothes to dry in the dryer.

April- So glad you joined! I've enjoyed reading your posts on other threads! percent goals throw me too... I can't wrap my head around them.

My weigh in today wasn't what I had hoped for, 139.5 so I actually GAINED. No fear, I will be strong and steadfast. I will get it off by next week. Now I have to go drink water and fold my laundry. PS I got a new clothesline for christmas! I am super excited! They help work your arms and upper body when you are hanging the clothes!

I love our clothesline! We actually have an Amish style one - nothing better than line-dried sheets! We had some snow today here, though, so nothing on the line.

I used my new trekking poles on a hike today, and bought a rowing machine (brand new, for $25 on craigslist!) so now I have to go figure out how to use it.

You will TOTALLY get that pound or so off. Chances are it's just water weight anyway, so, hey, you'll probably get to see a bigger-than-average loss next time.

Officially weighed in today: 136! So 1.5 down from last week, and 4 down total. (Also, 4 down from this Monday. The holidays were not my friends.)
Even more exciting for me, though? 3/4 of an inch off my waist! Woo hoo!

Best of luck to everyone else--hoping to hear good reports from all of you soon!

I'm in! 15 lbs in 15 weeks sounds like a goal I can reach. I will start today! Starting weight 309.3 (12-30-11) Can anyone recomend any good in home work out Cd's to try? I've been doing ok with just using the wii fit daily for 30 min. a day. Those of you that go walking everyday no matter what the weather is like, are my inspiration.

goal 02/04/11 - 153
goal 02/18/11 - 149
goal 03/03/11 - 145
goal 03/17/11 - 141

I think I'm going to hold off on these kinds of challenges until the weather gets warmer again. I've been losing, but slower than in the summer because I have been eating more calories when it's cold.
