    This is my first challenge. How do we do this? Do we have weekly weigh ins or post scale pics or something? Just curious.

    I need a challenge bad. I have been on my journey since January. I have lost 85 pounds and want to lose the next 15-20 by Christmas. I would really like some new clothes that fit for Christmas. In the last few weeks my motivation has been playing peek a boo. I hit under 200 pounds and some health issues started and some days it's really hard to think about logging, weighing and measuring and since I was told no exercise I am going to have to get really strict with the nutrition part.

    Congrats on losing all that & getting under 200! What a fantastic milestone.

    I'm sorry about your health issues but am a bit surprised about the no exercise. I always thought at least movement helped. Isn't that part of P.T.? Maybe you can't run, swim or lift weights but I'd clarify whether you can do anything -- take a walk, march while seated in a chair etc.

    Thank you.

    Yes I can walk and I started back today after I got my kids on the bus. I will also do the Walk at home ones once it gets to bad to do it outside. I can't do heavy weights, jumping and the stuff like that. I also clean a lot to keep moving and busy.

    I'm in. I'm doing a low carb diet with a goal of 4 lbs a month. Just started July 13th and I've cheated a bunch. Trying to get back into the routine.

    I'm so in with this challenge and the added motivation will definitely help. This week I'm doing a cleansing fast to jump into a new session starting Monday. I struggle very hard to get under 280 and when I go under it just goes right back up over 280 sometimes even 298 like the last time. I gym but I'm also in school and sometimes school work trumps going to the gym but I eat properly with a few cheats here and there. Started this week at 280 and I'm back up to 284 and it's only Tuesday. So I'm looking forward to dropping that 10lbs initially to get under 280 and another 10lbs until my goal weight of 180. Let's do this!!!!

    Sounds achievable! I'm still recovering from a c section but should be cleared to exercise in about a couple of weeks, hopefully a challenge will give me some motivation to get in a routine from the beginning!
