Starting Weight Check-IN (9/1)

Hello all of you amazing, motivated, and all around lovely THIN it to WIN it challengers!

It's getting close to time to get that fat droppin' ball rolling on the journey toward the New Year's Ball droppin'.

It looks like we have a good strong group going on here, about 25, that's manageable, right?! :glasses: I'm open for more to join though, we need all the support we can get, am I right? I know I am ready to be smokin' hot :smokin: for New Year's I don't know about all of you!!

Okay, so THIS Saturday the first of September is our official day one, so you can put your starting weight in then, or now if you would like, I'm trying to figure out how to track everyone so we can keep it all official like! :laugh:

Maybe a check-in format could help for now? Anyone want us to track inches lost as well as weight? If total measurements are wanted to be given, just every two weeks tell me your total inches lost and we can track it that way? We'll play that one by ear for now...... Here's our starting weight check-in at least! :heart:

And as of now, after reading everyone's ideas, we'll for sure have weekly weigh-ins and weekly challenges! Hope everyone is ready! I can't wait to get started....hence the posting a few days early! :)

    Why do you want to lose the weight? To love what I see in the mirror, fit into my clothes better, and surprise my boyfriend when he returns in December. This is not so much about losing the weight for me, but about beginning to work out and bettering the appearance of my skin.

    Why do you want to lose the weight? To gain confidence. Whenever I hit higher weights I just don't feel like myself anymore, I don't care to be around people, especially do active things with them, eat with them, or surely would NOT go to the beach with them. I would just like to feel comfortable in my own skin, comfortable in clothing, and appealing to my husband (even though as you can guess he says I already am, but still, I'd rather WOW him.)

    So.....with that said..... LET'S DO THIS!

    Why do I want to lose weight? Well I'm really not concerned with losing a bunch but I want to work on my problem areas. I would like to have a flat stomach again and tone my legs and butt. After having my children I feel like I owe it to myself to get back into shape. I also want to feel and look sexy!!!

    Why do you want to lose the weight? I was doing great and felt so much better. More energy, clothes fit better. Then I blew it and gained again. Now my newer clothes don't fit. I'm also going on a real vacation this year (cruise) for the first time ever and want to feel comfortable with myself. Plus looking to be SMOKING HOT rocking my swim suit!
