View Full Version : WISH - Thanksgiving Challenge - Week 6 Check In

10-19-2004, 09:15 AM
Hi everyone! It's week 6 and we're pumped up, getting those pounds off! :cheer2: Thursday will be my first WI at WW, so I'll be posting my success ;) then. Things have gone pretty good this week, it's the first time I've ever journaled the entire week! Just knowing that I'm back on track, and being accountable by going to WW, makes me feel sooo much better!! :sunny:

It seems like alot has been going on in everyone's lives lately, but everyone is staying positive about losing weight and meeting our Thanksgiving goals! I just can't believe it will only be 5 more weeks before Thanksgiving! :earseek: I think I can do ok with staying OP, but I'm more worried about doing everything before our early Dec. trip to the World! I don't know about you guys, but time is flying by for me!

KimRaye, I would like to offer condolences on your loss last week. I know what a trying time it can be. I'm still dealing with the loss of my DGM from Sept. and it's hard at times. The holidays won't be alot easier either. Just know that we are all here for you, and SOO proud of you and your weight loss! It is a miracle that this was the 1st week that you've gained since starting your journey in Jan.!! You are doing a great job, girl! :worship:

Ok, here's our updated list. Our group has lost 183 lbs!! In the next few days, I'll try to pm our challengers that haven't posted, to see how everyone is doing!

As you can see, alot of WISHer's are close to their Gobble Up Success goal! CookieGVB & luvmydogs are kicking some bootay! :cool1: It's a little, unknown fact that at the end of the challenge, there will be a prize! So, whoever loses the most, not only has the satisfaction of losing weight & feeling good, but they also get a goody!! :teeth: Don't worry, we'll all be winners at the end of the challenge because we are LOSERS!! ;)

Now, it's that time...Drop us a note and tell us how you are doing! :chat:

Good luck at your weigh in this week, Tiffany. :)

I'm down another pound this week so that puts me at 4/30. :)

10-19-2004, 09:44 AM
Tiffany - Good luck on Thursday!

Princess Michelle - Congratulations on the 1 pound loss!

As for myself I had my weigh in last night and managed to stay the same. I will take that over a gain any day. So I am still at 6/15.

We leave for WDW on Friday so I will not be weighing in next Monday, I will however be back to WW on Monday the 1st. I hope everyone has a great week.

10-19-2004, 12:45 PM
I weighed in this morning. Im down 3.5 pounds!!:Pinkbounc :Pinkbounc

So I am now 10.5/25!

10-19-2004, 12:59 PM
I maintained this week. Like clr, I will happily take it over a gain. I saw my ex this week for the first time in a year and a half - he actually told me not to lose anymore weight. :o It is almost unbelieveable to me that those words came from his mouth. :rolleyes:

10-19-2004, 01:03 PM
I'm down another 2 pounds today 10.4 pounds with only 4.6 pounds to go!!!

10-20-2004, 06:31 AM
Hello all,
The scale said I've lost another pound! :bounce: :Pinkbounc So I am now 5/10 for the challenge. Good luck to all this week!:sunny:

10-20-2004, 09:08 PM
WOW 183 pounds for the group that is GREAT

Well I made it today 10 pounds down 15 to go. A heafty goal but I am just excited that I a losing. WW is so easy to do... I really do not even have to think to much about what to eat. I love it.

Congrats to all...

10-20-2004, 10:32 PM
I forgot to check in last week and I stayed the same but this week I lost 1.5 so that is down 2 total.

:bounce: :Pinkbounc

I'm still maintaining my 3/12 but time is flying so I am really getting serious aboutthis again. My cruise is 1 month from today! That means I have 9 more pounds to loose in the next month :eek: If I really get serious about journaling my points I still might be able to come close.

Congrats to all that have been doing so well with losing!!!!!!!


10-21-2004, 03:33 AM
Hello everyone ~

Have had a really good week this week. Achieved my first 100 days cheat free and have started my second one. Since next week will be the end of the month, I will be weighing myself again, doesn't time fly LOL. I have also increased my exercise routine and added in some new things, so I am hoping for a good lose next week.

10-21-2004, 08:47 AM
As of today, we are only FIVE lbs. away from a 200 lb. loss by our Gobble Up Success group challengers!! :earseek: Come on...who else can give us some more pounds to add to that??

Minniespal....Thanks for updating us! We'll be sending you pixie dust for your monthly weigh in!! :wizard:

Cheryl N. WI... You can do it!! Just think how good you'll look on your cruise next month! ;) Don't do like I did though, and let myself go after the cruise... :rolleyes:

crzy4dals...WW IS great! Tonight is my 1st weigh in, so I'm excited too! You're only 1/3 away from your challenge goal, and you can do it! Just stay positive!! :sunny:

TigerBear...That's hilarious about your ex!! Hope you made his eyes pop out! :earseek: Thanks for posting, I love to hear of people maintaining. It's not always an easy journey, and we need to share our weekly ups & downs of staying OP with everyone! :chat:

clr1194... Have a good time at Disney! Eat a Mickey bar for me! :mickeybar

Everyone is doing so great!!! I have great faith that we are going to be successful in meeting our goals, and will feel so good about ourselves during the holidays!! ::yes::

10-21-2004, 08:05 PM
Tiffany thank you for the reminder to post my loss and for thinking of me. :) I have been definately avoiding this thread as I have NO good news to report. After taking a few weeks "off" (it always starts as just this 1 day but manages to turn in to - I'll start again on Monday :eek: ) I am unfortunately UP from when I started this challenge. 7 lbs to be exact :eek: So here I am -7/20 Oh my gosh! :faint: I weigh in tomorrow so hopefully the whoosh fairy will drop by for a visit and help me get a start on moving downward again! Congratulations to all the losers!! :wave2:

10-21-2004, 09:55 PM
Just checking in to say that I haven't lost any more, I have been pretty much maintaining. At this point I don't think I will reach my Thanksgiving goal...but you never know. I started a new FT job 3 weeks ago and I have very little time to myself and have gone OP, but regardless of that I am maintaining. I still have 14 pounds to go until goal, but at this point in time I am not beating myself up because the scale isn't moving.

Congrats to all the losers on this challenge, you should be very proud of your accomplishments.

And thanks to Tiffany for the nudge to post even though I haven't lost anything recently.

10-22-2004, 09:47 AM
So glad to hear from tiggerlover & kayeandjim00! Tiggerlover, you've lost so much weight & you're down to those final pounds. You've come so far, don't give up! :cheer2: kayeandjim00, I know exactly how you feel, having gained since starting the challenge. Since March, I stopped going to WW and during that time period, gained my 'loss' back & about 10 more! I didn't realize it was that bad, until I rejoined WW last week. But, I am back on track, stronger than ever! :teeth: And, you can do it too! You just have to make that decision when YOU are ready to! We're here for you! :grouphug:

Ok, time for my weekly check in... I lost 3.8 lbs. last week!! Yea!!! Of course, you always hope for more, but I was happy! :Pinkbounc :bounce: :Pinkbounc Thanks so much to all of you for being my inspiration!! :sunny:

10-22-2004, 11:30 PM
I'm sorry to say I've not done well on this challenge. Like a few other challengers, there has been a lot going on in my life lately, & all too frequently I have given in to the temptation of "comfort food". Between that & being off pace in my exercise program, I havenot lost any more, & have been struggling to maintain the 2 lb loss I've already reported. Hopefully I'll do better during the last few weeks of this challenge! After all, it's not over yet!

I will do better, & I will stop avoiding this thread! Hopefully I will be able to contribute some lbs lost to the total for this group by next week!

10-23-2004, 03:22 PM
Hello everybody. I'm still hanging in there. I'm holding steady at the 130 mark. Although, it is 130 exactly and the scale keeps jumping from 129-130. I'll just be safe and say 130. Next week though should show a loss. :wave2:

10-23-2004, 03:47 PM
I was down 1.6 this week! :) It's nice to see the scales going DOWN again. :teeth: So I'm now -5.4/20. Keep up the great work everyone. ::yes::

10-24-2004, 01:27 AM
Sorry, I haven't been reporting in. It has been very hectic around here. I would like to report that I have lost 8 lbs since my last report! I will try to do better posting my results. Good luck to everyone.

10-25-2004, 08:07 AM
Well, I haven't posted due to TOM. I was hoping this would be a good one, but the stress-eating monster hit me last week. So, I'm up 1.5 pounds. That makes it 2.5/10 for the challenge.

Thanks to DVCTiff for the above and beyond service! I'll try to be more accoutable, instead of hiding when I'm not doing too good.

10-25-2004, 08:37 PM
Well with that TOM lurking around the corner I report 0lbs lost - better than gaining!


10-25-2004, 08:47 PM
I lost half a pound which puts me at 6.5 out of 8 for the challenge.

Good thoughts coming to all of those who are struggling. Tomorrow is always a new day! :D

10-26-2004, 12:42 AM
Nancy, same here, as you know. :( We'll pick it up again very soon, I just know it.

So, same for me as well, no loss/no gain this week, miraculous really.

I did do a 30min WATP tape today, but that's another thread. ;)


10-26-2004, 01:09 AM
I went down two pounds, putting me at 3.5/10. Thanks for keeping this updated and keeping on me to complete this challenge! You are all wonderful!

Off to drink lots of water and eat some healthy stuff! I'm gonna be committed! Or else.... OR ELSE NO TURKEY DAY FOR ME!


10-26-2004, 09:20 AM
Well, I have not posted since the challenge started because I have not been following my program.
But I think I've gotten myself back on track, and I can say that finally I've lost 1 pound, so I'm 1/10. I won't make my goal, but that's okay, I feel better now that I'm posting again.

10-26-2004, 10:54 AM
I searched and did not see one, so I will post here.

I am down 5 pounds!

Congrats to those that are still sticking with the challenge despite life's challenges no matter what the scale says. It's been a rough week for me but I am determined not to turn to food for comfort. Thanks for being here every week!

I am now 15.5/25!

10-26-2004, 08:28 PM

Lost another 1.8 pounds for a total of 12.2 pounds with only 2.8 pounds to go!!! I'm thinking I'm good for my 15 pounds, but now might shoot for 20 pounds :teeth:

10-27-2004, 01:50 PM
After only .2 last week this week is SUPER!!! 3.0 which makes me down 13... I am just loving it.... Would love to see 7 more gone by turkey day. This means really focusing and walking!

Keep on losin'

10-28-2004, 07:59 AM
I've lost 3 pounds since the last time I checked in, so I'm now at 10/15.

10-28-2004, 08:47 AM
I'm posting here since I can't find a week 7 thread. We were in WDW during week 6 and I was pretty good but definitely in vacation mode. I drank and had candy from MNSSHP, plus a few rice krispie Mickey heads (I got a little addicted), but now I'm home and I'm still 140. That's what walking until your feet fall off does!

I'm not happy to be back but I'm happy to be back on program.

Good job everybody!
