    I know a few people have expressed an interest in a small challenge to keep focussed before Christmas...

    Personally I want to lose at least 7lbs by my IVF apt on 1 December, and Lizz MB has her birthday on 2 December.

    So I propose a 1 December challenge - which is 46 days (I think) starting tomorrow. But if others want to extend the time for a few more weeks that is great.

    If anyone can think of a more interesting name suggest away - I am out of inspiration at the moment

    So if you are interested sign up below and copy and paste into your message...

    Found you!!!

    Well I am kind of restarting, so expect a bigger loss in my first week. Last time round I'd lost 28lbs exactly in that amount of time.
    I'll go for 20lbs as I doubt I'll lose quite so much.
    20lbs by 1st December will be lovely :)

    I'm in too. I've changed my pledge because I want to get my focus of losing weight and that diet mentality and more about being healthy. I can do this. I still need to lose the weight but it will come off.

    I'm in too, aiming to lose the 7lbs gained on hols and get back to goal weight or below. Method - healthy eating, perhaps with some CD products as I have a few left still.

    Me too. My aim is to be back to under 12 stones - where I was when I stopped dieting. People here have advised just eating 'normally' and the extra weight will come off. I don't really understand why though, wouldn't I have to eat less than I need to live through a day in order to lose weight?
    Anyway -

    Know what you mean with this. My 'normal' is not so normal though, which is what got me into this mess. Think if I re-evaluated my opinion of normal and ate properly I'd be fine! That's the long term plan anyway :D

    Hi All, Brilliant idea and I'm in!!! I would like to pledge 11lbs loss to get me down to my target of 10st. I am not going to be doing CD though as I have tried a restart (yet again) and was doing really well but have not been able to 'go'. Sennakot, suppositories, dulcoease, sweetcorn, spinach, etc etc blah blah have made no difference to my plight...grrr so I am going to give the Harcombe diet a go. I bought the books and recommended them to a friend and she lost 7lbs in two days by EATING!!! She has now lost 11lbs in 10 days and feels terrific and all her ailments have gone. Her eyesight is clear etc etc. Wishing all of us get what we desire by 01/12/.
