    Hi! I am a new MFP member. This seems like a fun challenge. My name is KC, 5'4'' and currently 165 lbs. I plan to lose at least 15 lbs by Christmas, but I guess my real goal is 20lbs! My ideal maintaining weight is 125 lbs, but that's a long way to go.. Good thing this is a lifestyle change. :smile:
    Good luck everyone! And have fun!!

    Hey - count me in!!
    I'm Vicki, I'm 33 and live in the UK with my hubby, my daughter and crazy cat :smile:

    My journey has been up and down as I lost a lot of weight a few years ago but gained it all back plus more when I had my daughter. She's just turned 1 so it's time to get back on track!!

    SW (Sept 2014): 17stone (238 lbs)
    CW: 13st 11.6 (193.6 lbs)

    Loss has been slow the past few months so I want a large but achievable target so 20 lbs in 12 weeks for me!
    Goal by Christmas = to lose another 20 lbs! Eek.

    Hello :smile: Just found this challenge. Been on MFP for a couple of years now and I love joining short term challenges to keep me motivated. I was about 260 at my heaviest and about 234 when I first joined MFP. Ultimate goal weight is somewhere between 160-130, haven't been that light in years so have no idea how I'll feel or where I'll want to stop. Probably as close to a normal healthy weight as I can get. Currently hovering between 196 and 194 for the past two weeks or so. I have a mini goal weight of 180 that I'm trying to meet in order to have an elective surgery so the faster I hit that, the better.

    I'm pretty terrible about logging consistently but I've still managed to lose 40lbs in the last 7 months or so. But I certainly don't want to gain any of it back over the holidays.

    I go to the gym at least 3 days a week but have set personal goals last month to make it there at least 4-5 days. Don't have that down yet but it's getting better. I just started dabbling in weight training, so hoping to see bigger fat losses and better body composition.

    Nice to meet all of you.

    Hi all! My name is Rae and I've been on MFP since January 2015. I live in Oregon, USA, with my husband and two very spoiled, but adorable dogs (an Aussie and a Beagle). I'm 55 years old and 5'5". At my heaviest I was around 180. I've been a yo-yo dieter most of my life. I've gained and lost the same 25-30 pounds more times than I can remember. I still have another 15-20 to reach my goal weight. It's been slow, but it is coming off bit by bit.

    My highest weight - 180
    My current weight - 161
    My goal weight by Christmas - 150
    Ultimate goal weight - 145

    I have a pretty healthy diet and am gluten-free. Would love to share recipes and meal ideas.
    Favorite exercises - aquafit class, yoga, walking and disc golf! I want to be as fit as possible for my age and beat my hubby at disc golf!

    Anyone who wants can send me a friend request! B)

    Hi all hoping to lose 9lbs if I keep it up I should be on track. Essentially I put on a lot of weight recently and looking to shed it again to be back in the happy zone. Not a very dramatic goal but there you go!
