๐ŸAutumn โ„ Winter 2018 to ๐ŸŒผSpring 2019 Challenge


No break in consistency! From November 20, 2018 to March 20, 2019. Let's continue through the holidays and Winter months to say GOOD - BYE to excess fat. Sure, there will be a few minor bumps in the path, but we can do this! This DOES NOT have to be the time of year that results in weight gain. What is your stumbling block? Be supportive! We can work it out together. Maybe weekly challenges within this challenge could help? Let's discuss and do it! Along the way, let's have some fun!

Post your Starting Weight on your usual weigh in day or every Tuesday until the end of this challenge.

    I'm thinking one of the first challenges within the challenge (CWC) should be 8 hours of sleep, since it's holiday time.

    Welcome @tootioakley! Trish, I hope you have fun with us and lose weight along the way! Maybe that should be reverse? Lol.

    @GrandmaJackie, Jackie, I know, right? I stopped celebrating Thanksgiving 2 years ago. After hosting my family for 30 years with all the bells and whistles, I had enough. The stress, the planning, the shopping, cleaning, the hours of standing and cooking, cooking, cooking then the seemingly endless hours of clean up. Weight gain was never my problem on this holiday. Too tired to even eat! 8 hours sleep challenge, yes, perfect! I know it's impossible for most before the holiday, it always was for me, but the day after I will post the challenge.

    @tiabirdie56, last year my daughter started hosting it, her request, my reply โ€œokayโ€. So now after Thanksgiving our tradition is Black Friday shopping, NO KIDS NO MEN, lol. Thanks for creating this challenge, ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    @GrandmaJackie, Thanks for joining my challenge! Loving your daughter! That is exactly how it started for me. I have 2 sons, but DIL wants to spend Thanksgiving with her family (her Aunt hosts) and my niece goes to NC with her husband and his family. They still ask what I'm doing for TG though. Oh, I'm cooking dinner, my DH, son and I have to eat after all, BUT NOT Thanksgiving dinner.

    Sleep would be a great focus!
    I never get 8, but I can shoot for 7!!

    Hi, my name is Rosa-Jane. I'd like to join, but as I'm in the Southern Hemisphere (New Zealand) it'll be a summer challenge not a winter one. I hope that's ok? I know there's other people from my area on MFP so they'll be in the same boat. The other consequence of my location is that it will look like I'm posting quite early due to the time difference.

    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 82.1 kg (181.0 lbs)
    Challenge Goal Weight ~ 73.1 kg (161.1 lbs)

    It seems like a lot to lose to me, however I'm doing ok on the challenge ending in December so here's hoping I'll be ok on this one too. My challenge goal weight is in the healthy BMI range which has been my long term goal for the seven years - but I've never quite got there before.

    Btw, I don't think there's much hope of me making the sleep goal. For the last month I've averaged 5h23m - it's really not for lack of trying. I'm always in bed for over 8h. But, I'm not complaining too much because that's a vast improvement over the month before when my average was 3h11m.

    @malika1976, Hello and Welcome Rosa-Jane! So for you, ๐ŸŒผSpring ๐ŸŒปSummer 2018 to ๐ŸAutumn 2019. Enjoy the warmth!

    @MadisonMolly2017 and @malika1976, no worries on the sleep challenge. I don't sleep 8 hours either, max 6 , occasionally 7. I do things that sabotage consistent, restful sleep though.

    ***I got 6 hrs and 45 mins sleep last night, woot hoot, thatโ€™s about normal for me. Iโ€™ll call that a win for me, sometimes Iโ€™ll only get around barely over 5, :( ***

    November 20, 2018 ~ 177.2 - 42 lbs left to reach my ultimate goal. It was 40 lbs on Nov. 9th when 175 appeared, then was rudely replaced by 177. Lol. This number loves me.

    Thank you for this, Tish! I am a part of one with you and Grandma Jackie, and another where most people seem to have fallen by the wayside. I'd like a weekly challenge.

    @DebCountsAll, Welcome Debbie! Thanks for joining! I like a weekly challenge also. I'm in several, but yes, people like to join and never come back. A coupleof challenges that I've been in the person that started the challenge didn't return! Hope all is well with them. I won't do that.

    Hello again! Glad the challenge is continuing! I will keep on weighing in on Sunday mornings. We'll see if I can get off at least 10 pounds despite the holiday. Good luck everybody!
