    I will lose 35, hitting my target of 165. 12 lost so far. I'm thinking a pirate or cowboy.

    Hey guys! Great goals!

    I do feel obligated to note that as of today, the 2-lb-per-week safety limit is a goal loss of 26 lbs by Halloween. Not telling you what CAN be done, or what you SHOULD do, just a quick reminder.

    You guys are awesome!

    (Obviously those who are severely overweight or are under the guidance of a doctor will experience weight loss differently than most of us. )

    I would like to lose 20 lbs by Halloween. I haven't decided on a costume yet. Waiting on my girls to pick so we can have a theme!

    I guess I should get on the list! From July 22nd to Halloween, I hope to have lost 13 lbs - unless I start gaining muscle by then! Undecided, but hopefully something risqué.

    I probably confused things by noting my total "by Halloween" since June goal instead of weight lost during the challenge only. Since I expected slowed loss after the -20 start, I was unsure. Let's go for -15 lbs. in the next three months, since I want to add some muscle, and a costume that doesn't include a long jacket or cape.

    I finally broke down and weighed today but it was mid afternoon. I am weigh 7lbs more than what I was hoping but I guessed the right weight when I checked in on mfp. I am kind of disappointed because I can't tell a difference yet but I have to remind myself that I didn't weigh when I started so there is no telling how much that I have actually lost. If I can figure out how to post pics, I will take my a pic tomorrow because I did take a before pic when I started. So, my goal has changed since I weigh more than I hoped. My goal now will be 150 to 155.

    mandy- rule 1 of weighing yourself is Thou Shalt Not Weigh-In After Breakfast. (Ok, technically it's not a rule, and maybe it skews the results a teensy bit, but I've always found weighing yourself in the afternoon to be an unnecessarily depressing decision). I'm not sure where you're at right now, but 155 sounds like a reasonable, achievable and excellent goal. ((hugs))

    Goal is 15 pounds by Halloween.
    Costume ideas? Need to figure out something cute for my little girl and will probably do something that goes with that.

    I always plan to do something like this and never do, so first off, great challenge idea! I'll shoot for 15 lbs, and from this morning that will put me at 136. The current plan in my house is to be either Donatello or Raphael from TMNT, but with a two year old and a four year old, that may be subject to change, or if I can actually go out after trick or treat I may have a second costume.

    Thank you :) I weighed again the next morning and was 2lbs lighter.

    @Jg04811 You can join at any time! Obviously, the longer you're in, the more you're likely to get out of it, but we're only 1 week in, so it is far, FAR from over!
