    I too would like another challenge. I'm hoping to stay on a challenge to get me all the way through winter as I get cold and I get sluggish. I don't want to hit any slippery slopes. :#

    I'd love a new one, since I was so off plan during this one. Maybe through New Years?

    Well @barbhat13 it looks like good old mom is already coming to the aid again. I guess I still need to work my butt off. LOL

    Totally understand.... That rollercoaster of motherhood threatened to toss me off a few weeks ago....adding extra shifts too....

    I agree a new challenge is needed. I fell off the wagon again this challenge as life threw me a huge curve ball. I am game for the next few challenges just to stay in the swing of things but my weight loss has been put on hold for a little bit. I found out I was pregnant and needed some time to evaluate everything and just let the news sink in. But I still want to be tracking what im eating and my workouts and I do enjoy these challenges.

    Everyone in agreement for New Years? I will set it up if one hasnt been yet. I know I have been MIA so I dont want to make a new one if one has already been done. If not I can get it up tomorrow.

    Yes, please set up a new one. My life went crazy and I barely participated in this last one, but I want to change that and a challenge to focus on over the winter holiday season will be helpful, I think. (My birthday falls in this period as well: Dec 7.)

    Gosh, SilverStormi, I am so excited for you! I was pretty stunned by my first pregnancy, calling my mom to cry about my news. Now that baby is 33 and pregnant with my second grandchild. I will be thinking good thoughts for you.

    I have been in great denial about being on track and staying accountable. This first of November has me recharged and feeling motivated. I too would appreciate another challenge. Ready to participate more fully!

    Looks fun! I finally managed to go swimming twice last week (indoors). Also signed up for the Hot Chocolate 15K next weekend, which was a good incentive to run in the rain on Halloween.

    I've been logging my food, and doing lots of yard work, but I can't begin to remember what box my scale was packed in! Next week will be cooler weather, maybe I'll attach those last 6 or 8 boxes from our move.

    New challenge is up. Sorry my sinuses have been kicking my butt this week and I have been getting home and passing out before I get a chance to set up the next challenge. Im working on it today at work so it is up, invites sent shortly and spreadsheet will be done before 5pm today. Its a slow day at work so Im using my down time and working on this to look busy :wink:

    First weigh in will be due next Monday 11/16 to give people time to get their new numbers set up so you may need to change your starting weight with this weeks weigh in so you can still keep track.

    If you didn't get an invite for some reason and want to join here is the link to the new challenge
