2016 New Year weight loss challenge.
 
I would like to start a new years challenge. I need to lose 25 pounds this year. 2 pounds a month. I would love to do it in 6 months and lose 4 pounds a month. but I would be happy with 2, I have to be very reasonable because I do not lose!! we would weigh in on Fridays. hope someone wants to join me. think about it, join anytime. January 2nd first weigh in.

Hi Linda! Having a challenge is a good idea, and we've been talking about starting a summer challenge after our New Year's challenge is over on Jan. 4th. Weigh ins have been on Mondays (helps us keep accountable over the weekends), because we already have a regular weekly Friday weigh in thread ongoing. We also try to break our challenges up into smaller chunks because it's easier to stay focused with more mid-term goals than a whole year at a time. Would you like to join us for our next challenge beginning probably the 2nd week of January?

I will join any challenge where we weigh in on Monday. I like the continuity of weighing in twice a week, Friday for every week and Monday for challenge day.
Can I propose to keep the challenge to 12 weeks long, Spring Challenge instead of longer. Lets see what we can do in 3 months.

Libby, I agree with you on 12 weeks. Anything longer than that and I lose focus on it.

I"m with linda987... I have to drop 25 lbs, and 2lbs/month sounds doable. It woudl be lovely to be my goal weight by next winter.
