April 2009 Weight Loss Challenge - Stepping into Spring 28.3 lbs lost!

It's time to keep moving forward even if you didn't have much of a weight loss in March. So we are starting a new challege for April. Think in terms of small goals to help you reach the larger goal.

Feel free to encourage others on this thread and to share what is working for you to take off the weight. If you stumble, feel free to share your frustrations. If we all support each other, we will see big losses by month's end.

On this thread I will track your weight loss goals for April along with your actual losses. Just post your goal (the total you would like to lose in April) in your original post, then as you lose weight come back here and report the amount you have lost. Each Wednesday, I will update this original post to reflect everyone's losses, so that you can see the progress we are making together!

As you lose weight, your name will be color coded accordingly.
0 - 2.5 lbs in Cyan
2.6 - 5 lbs in Orange
5.1 - 7.5 lbs in Magenta
7.6 - 10 lbs in Dark Orchid
Over 10 lbs in SeaGreen

So time to get out there and start losing, one pound at a time! Let's see how much we can lose as a team.


Participants Progress (actual lbs/goal):
bnhasak 0/10
dairyou 0/5
dis2cruise 1/5
disneygals 0/5
kaysmommie 0/5
Lesli54 2.8/10
Lindamary123 5.2/5
If U Had Wings 3.9/10
nappingbeauty 3.2/10
patita71 0/6
ski mom 0/7

My goal for April is to lose 10 lbs. I didn't make the March goal, but I did lose some and more importantly, I started making lifestyle changes that will help me to make greater losses.

WISHing everyone luck in April.

Count me in, since I only lost 1 lb. so far in March.....I'll try for the other 3 lbs. in April.

1 lb down is better than gaining!

I am hoping that you can take off the rest in April. Don't forget to post your final numbers for March if anything changes.

I'm in!

I haven't been eating well lately, although I've been going to the gym regularly. I want to lose 10 lbs this month.

We make a great team. I have been eating well, but not exercising regularly. Here's hoping that we both conquer the other half this month.

That definitely sounds like a plan. I've actually found exercise that I like, and am planning on starting a running program. Food though is my weakness. Bad food at any rate, is my weakness.

I'd love to join. I'm hoping to lose 10 pounds each of the next 3 months before our WDW trip.

We'll see though.

I have added everyone to the first post.

Laura, you can report your weight changes at anytime when you normally weigh in, if you would like. Some people weigh in on Fridays. Whichever you chose, I will update totals on Wednesdays, unless for some reason I am away.

Glad to see everyone here. Remember this month is a great month for making great changes.

Well, I'm in again. I only lost 3.4 of my 7 pounds for the March challenge, so I'm going to join again and try to do better. I'll put myself down for 7 pounds again and try to do it. I might be going to camp with my youngest son in the middle of June and would love to be in the 220's by then. I went with my daughters when they were his age and I was probably in the 260's then. (I can't believe I just typed that). I got up to my high of 270 and finally started WW's. I'd like to get down to around 160 but I've got a long way to go, but I do know that it's do-able a little at a time.

Here's to a great month for everyone!

Signing up! April goal is 6lbs. it will be a challenge, I have a trip up north for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and family coming to visit next week.

I made some eating adjustments in March, started packing a couple of 100cal snacks (jello, almonds, yogurts) to snack on in between meals and the commute home, I think this really helped me avoid picking at snacks while cooking dinner. For april I'm going to try to increase my cardio..
Good Luck everyone

Everyone and their goals have been added to the first post.

I think that everyone has very achievable goals this month.

Patita, I think taking your snacks with you are a great idea! I always find that when I wait too long to eat that I end up overeating.

WISHing everyone much success.
