St. Patrick's day Challenge

kirstendawm Posts: 101 Member
Hello! I have found that setting short term goals for myself is very helpful in helping me meet my goals. I would like to start a thread where we check in daily and discuss our goals regarding weightloss and any other goals. I just completed a challenge where my goal was to lose 5 lbs and break my soda habit. I almost reached my goal! So now I want to set a new goal: I want to lose 8 lbs by st. Patrick's day! So daily, or almost daily, I will post my progress. We can help keep one another accountable! Feel free to add me as a friend!

SW: 184
CW: 180.2
GW: 172.2

My goal is to try and stay under my calorie goal everyday and try to reach 8,000 steps every day.

    Sounds great Kirsten - I also like the short term challenges. I did the Valentines Challenge and managed to gain weight (oops) after a month of losing but did like having posts to read to keep me encouraged. Congrats on kicking the soda habit - that is a tough one! Not really setting a specific goal this time other than get back into the130's and we'll see how well it goes from there.

    I'm in! My goal is to eat less than 1300 calories every day and not eat any fried food!! (I work in a restaraunts so there are always extra fries for us to nibble on... Such a diet buster!)
    This time I am going to just focus on my daily diet goal (and continue exercising as I already do) and not obsess over the number. At the end I will weigh myself and see where my efforts got me :)

    I'm in, I want to get under 200 by my anniversary two days after that. I will then definitely weigh less than when I got married 11 years ago. (I'm not quite sure weighed then, but have a ballpark idea). Logging food at least 2 meals a day (paper log is ok). 60,000+ steps for the week.

    I'm in! I've been working out daily (on day 8) burning about 350-400 calories per workout. Trying to make exercise a habit so I'm aiming for 100 straight workouts. Also trying to keep calories down and make healthier choices. Just starting out with a lot to lose. Could use some support if anyone wants to be buds add me! I log every day.
