    can I just ask .. I would love to lose 12lbs by xmas .. but how do you do it without not eating.. x.. I'm currently fasting 2 days a week (still eating some but lower cal.count) I don't think I can do more than streamline what I am doing..x.. does anyone have any ideas?

    two and half pounds a week should get you down to 12 pounds by Christmas, that's if you follow and keep the cheating to a minimum, it's doable if you weigh over a certain amount. Those closer to their goals will not be able to do it, but if they even get closer to their goals, it's still good progress either way.

    Considering I weigh 286.2, 12 pounds by Christmas would be awesome because it would get me below the 50 pound weight loss marker but I'll settle for eight to ten. Just under 44 pounds gone still have 126 to go. I'm one pound short from being at the quarter mark, will be looking forward to when I reach my halfway goal next.

    Made it my first 24 hrs with food & exercise on track to make the 12 lbs by Christmas. It seems that by committing to others, it has helped me be accountable. I even signed up for an extra class on Monday for Yoga. My biggest challenge in the past has been to stop the night binges. I have a hike planned for today. Check in tomorrow, good luck to everyone signed up!

    Ok, fell off wagon as went away unexpectedly but am back on....this challenge IS acheivable by those of us, like me, with a lot still to lose. I appreciate why some people want to advise that it is too big a goal etc but it doesn't matter if none of us make the 12 but even get half way....it is progress and this helps motivate us....so I am aiming for 12 but ANY loss will be gratefully accepted by me at least ☺️

    Unless you let falling short of the goal derail you from long term sustainable progress towards a bigger, more reasonable goal...

    ...or you do things that are not conducive to longterm success in order to read this short term goal...

    ...or you meet the goal and declare "mission accomplished!" and then take a "break" from progress for a few months/years.

    So yeah, as long as it is reasonable and supports the longterm goal, then absolutely, great idea. Otherwise, it might actually be counterproductive. Just something to consider.
