New Challenge

After talking to my dad we changed the new competition a bit. This is a competition for everyone. You do not need to lose weight to be in this competition!

First everyone needs to pick their goal. The goals need to be realistic (i.e. my dad’s can’t be to lose 5 pounds) but also achievable. Some goals could be to lose weight, be a certain dress/pant size, not drink caffeine or pop anymore, etc. You get to come up with your own goal. Whoever is going to participate needs to post their goal on the blog. The goals need to be met by the Christmas party which means we have 4 months to reach them. Also, there can be multiple winners. Whoever reaches their goal will get a prize!

Everyone needs to post their goal by Monday August 25. Every week you will need to post what you have done to achieve your goal. One week before the Christmas party everyone will need to post whether or not they met their goal. The prizes will be brought to the party or mailed to you if you cannot make it to the party.

I hope everyone will participate. I think we all owe it to ourselves to.

My goal is to be able to wear some pants that Natalie gave me for my birthday by the Peck Christmas Party. They are capris so they would be too cold to wear to the party ~ but I will bring them and show everyone that they fit. I think they still have the tags on them because they have never fit. Also, they can't fit tight, they need to look good.

Mikes goal is to gain 10 pounds. It isn't very fair that he is trying to gain weight, but he has a really hard time doing it. He has been trying to gain 10 pounds for the past 6 months. I told him he can have that as a goal as long as an increase in pants size doesn't follow. Only muscle allowed here.

My goal is to lose 40 pounds by the Christmas party. Shane

Cassie I agree that you don't need to lose ANY weight! If you do the no soda goal there are a few rules. In order to make it an measureable goal and fair this is how it will work. You have 2 months to do what you need to do to get off of it. Then, you need to be free of it completely for 2 months. Good luck!

I want to wear pre pregnant clothes. I am so sick of my maternity clothes. I keep trying on my regular clothes to see if they'll fit yet..it's really depressing.
Tom's goal is to lose the pregnant pity weight.

My goal is to lose 1.5 inches off my thighs and my hips! I guess I need to get the measuring tape out right now....That's depressing!!! And Lindsey, we've all been there...they'll fit sooner or later. Some of mine still don't fit and I'm like way far ahead of you.

Sorry I'm a little late--we've been on vacation. I want to fit into my pre-pregnancy "skinny" jeans. comfortably. I think that means losing about 15 pounds which is the rest of the baby weight plus a little.

No baby weight for me, just a big belly. First day on diet went well, No sugar, cheese, no food after 7:00 and plenty of water. 1 day down 120 more to go.

So I'm kind of opposite, I'm trying to hold on to my baby weight right now. Gotta love morning sickness! My goal is to drink lots more water. Funny, because I hated that challenge last time. I want to drink at least 24oz. a day. For some that sounds easy, but for me it's super hard so I know it's a good one for me. Hopefully I don't blow up like a water balloon towards the end of the pregnancy. Good luck to you all~!

I hope I can still participate??? I haven't been on the blog since last week. My goal is to loose ten pounds by the party. I have the hardest left, the dreaded last ten pounds. I swear they take the longest to fall off. Good Luck everyone!

I guess I'm the last to read this. If it is too late for Natalie, it is way to late for me. I'm with Shane. I want to lose 40 pounds by Christmas, but for me I think it is impossible--not that I don't have more than that to lose, but I remember how it just fell off Shane when he stopped drinking soda pop and I don't drink any and weight never comes off fast for me. Anyway, I'll be happy with 30 pounds by Christmas. That's about 2 pounds a week--even through the holidays and even on fenfen I didn't loose more than that. Good luck to everyone. Maybe if I lose the weight I'll walk better--I know I'll feel better and definately look better. Wish I had an excuse like baby fat.
