now we have entered the last week i have been looking back to judge if this has been a success for me .
i have not reached my goal but the changes i have made over the last month have made me feel better about myself . i still have weight to drop but have lost inches all over .shirts fit better and i had to buy a new belt because my jeans are now loose .so for everyone who took part i hope you got something out of it even if its only a small NSV .

good luck in your last week lets rip this week up

    Needing a belt for your jeans is a better sign of progress than the scale, CONGRATS!
    I am down 7 for the challenge, but I was happy to see even one pound this week, I was on vacation with my husband and I was able to make healthy but delicious choices at restaurants. It is easier to make healthy choices at a restaurant when you are wearing white linen slacks and not averting your eyes from the bathroom mirror. Going upand down the steps at Niagara Falls was a great way to burn off the calories.
    I started this challenge in a rut, that could have easily turned into a surrender to unhealthy habits and giving up. Thanks for the challenge and being here. While I will hope to finish the challenge strong with a loss, the challenge has been a major SUCCESS for me. Thanks for everyone being willing to share their successes and their struggles!

    I did not lose 10 pounds and did not reach my goals. However, I lost inches, burn 3600 calories or more a week, and staying focus and those changes have made a significant change. Every effort and step is a new lifestyle and weight loss will show! July will help us nail another 3-4 lbs!

    Down 7.8 lbs and lost 3 and 2 inches respectively off waist and hips and I've amped up my exercise routines. So yes this challenge was a sucess even if I don't get that last 2.2 lbs by the 8th.

    Congrats to everyone else who lost lbs and inches, keep up the great work!!

    Ive lost 7.5 ibs so far in 5 weeks but with 1 week to go there a still good change i can lose my 10ibs, if not its ok. i feel better and im losing inches which is fine with me, also the last 3 weeks ive done more weight lifting then normal so some of my weight lately is muscle. i hope we can do another challenge again, this has really changed my life. Last week so go all out

    I haven't reached my goal...and actually no where near it!!! It is a little heartbreaking because I've realized my body wont do 10lbs in amonth. UGH. But it pushed me and made me want to work hard

    I thought I'd hit the 10 lbs. but then, after posting a 7.2-pound total loss on June 25, I regained about 3 pounds, for a toal of only 4.2 pounds down. I'm hoping to see 2 lbs. this week so I'm not too far off the 10 lb. goal.

    I don't think I'm going to hit the 10 pounds but I think I will be within a pound or two so I consider the challenge a great success for me. I've been sick the past couple of weeks and really had to cut back on exercise so it's given me a chance to focus on my diet and look at some of the macros. Congrats to all!

    Down 11.2lbs for the challenge so I'm very happy to have surpassed my goal. Looking forward to losing a little bit more for the last week. I have enjoyed the positive supportive energy of this group. Congratulations to all.

    Hi all. I am down a total of 12 lbs for the challenge and am working just as hard this week. I have been to the gym 4 days straight and continue to make better food choices. Good luck to all of you in the final week!!

    Down 4 which for me is good since I lose as slow as molasses. I'm near the end and these lbs don't want to come off! Have learned a lot in these weeks...

    -- Be patient!
    -- Enjoy the NSV...they are as important as the scale number
    -- Working out really helps!
    -- we are in this for the long haul...lifetime changes...not losing within the month is not as important as staying on track!
    -- enjoying changes in how clothes fit is fantastic!

    I'd love to reach 5 but not the end of the world...

    Hey everyone, weighed in today as I'll be at my boyfriend's tomorrow, and I managed the 10lbs :)
    I also just measured myself and I've lost 1 and a half inches from my chest, 2 and a half from my waist, and 1 and a half from my hips. I'm very proud of myself, and of everyone else, we all did great!
    Next month I'm aiming to lose at least 4 lbs and then reassess and decide if I want to lose more, though I think I've decided that I would like to.
    Good luck to everyone, and well done!

    Hey, well done EmmaL and everyone that gave it a shot wether you made the 10lbs or not.
    Glad to say, I hit -11.75lbbs (222.25 down from 234lb) this morning!
    For the first time in literally decades, certainly this milennium, the scale said "15 stone something". (1st = 14lb)
    Thanks again DelMc1 for pointing me here.

    I bounced up a bit this last week, but I am at a net 6.4lb loss. I am really happy with that since I am now working on the last 8lbs. When's the next challenge???

    I feel the same way! My loss isn't huge, but I also started this challenge in a rut. I got a really bad sinus infection, which I am JUST now getting over. Missed LOTS of gym time, which is out of the norm for me, and my husband traveled for work more than usual (lots of eating out for me when he does). BUT, I didn't let all that nonsense set me back like I would have in the past, so that is a HUGE victory for me. The fact that I had loss at all makes me really happy, and I want to do another challenge!

    Well I just did my last weigh in and fell a little short of the 10lbs. Lost 8.6, but I am ok with that :)
    I am ready for another round!!

    I normally weigh in on a Friday but weighed in this morning and I have lost 8.2lbs doing this challenge. I am so pleased and felt the challenge helped me achieve more than I might have done otherwise. Can't wait for the next one. Well done everyone who made it to the end :))
