4th of July goal- 199.9

BTW, Since this is only my second post (ive been lurking forever), let me introduce myself. My name is Shannon. Im married with two sons (18/12). I live on the Texas Coast. My Career is radio marketing and voiceover's.
Shannon, welcome to the Challenge.

My 20th reunion (back in '02) happened to coincide with my lowest weight the LAST time I lost a bunch (down to 184). It was pretty cool--I was probably twice that in HS.

My 30th will be next year--we'll see how that turns out .

Regards,
Michael

This is an Awesome Idea! And it's timing is great because it's right after my 31st B-day and Right before my Husbands 24th B-day which was one of my goal days too. So, though I have weigh in tomorrow, I know my weight is right at about 180lbs so I'll say I've got a goal of 18 lbs to lose by July 4th.

My weigh-in day is Sunday morning and I'm down 1.8#. OK for a couple days effort. Will be more exciting after I put in a week's work. I've got my meals cooked for the next 4-5 days. Just heat and eat. Lois

hi all
i just want to share something with you. I had my BF measured (digitally) on 19th Feb and it was a huge number. Then, six weeks and six pounds later, my BF was 3.5% lower!!!! I am so happy you can't quite cheat on body fat measurements, can you? Like if you know you have a weight-in tomorrow, so you go easy on the dinner tonight. You can't do that with body fat. I lost some weight and I expected the number to go down, but i thought maybe 1-2%.
I lost some 20lb since i started here on fitday, but part of me still doesn't believe that I'm actually losing fat, Now I even know how many % I'm losing

I'm going to give it my best shot. Thanks for putting these challenges here.




I started alli today. I've had success with it before with little side effects. I am going to see if it helps me get to this goal.
