6 week christmas challenge!!!



We are now approaching the worst possible period for anyone wanting to lose weight, our houses,offices and shops will be laden with tempting and yummy smelling treats.
I am setting myself a challenge! i want to get to christmas and lose a few poundages, as i am carrying MANY extra poundages since having my little one in march.
if we stick togather, help each other out, moan with each other, talk each other out of scoffing (illegal food references have been removed) then we will do this.

Im starting at 13.7

I'm not fussed was going to weigh on Sundays to keep me motivated. Was going to post this Sunday?

So what's the story with you? I am all new to this CWP. Not normally anyone really on when I'm scrolling through the forum. I'm British but live and work in Singapore. I suspect most on here are from the UK? There is an 8 hour difference and most post when I am fast asleep!
sunday sounds good?

I work nights, hence why im trauling the internet at 4.25 am (uk time) i work in a hospital and its really quiet at night, lots of time for face book etc :). what do you do?

i have done this before, i lost alot of weight, 4 stone! but then i met my partner, got HEAVILY pregnant and now weigh 13.7 stone. i want to get down to 9.5 as i was happy then, at my goal for this is my daughters first birthday on the 1st march 2012. it seems like a really long way off at the moment, i just need to kick my bum into gear. by christmas, if i stick to this 100% i can lose 2 stone. i have done it before so i can do it again.

as im starting today i wont have lost much by sunday but its a good weigh in day.

have you got a six week 'goal'?

Are you a nurse? I am a Mental Health Nurse and now lecture nursing studies here in Singapore. Sounds like the plan works for you with a great weight loss. I was hoping to lose 20lbs by Christmas week and so far lost 6-7. Don't know if you have seen my other posts but thinking of doing 810. Any thoughts?
Hi fabregas, you might want to edit out the references to 'illegal' food in your first post, or this thread will get moved to the main cd forum.

Goal Weight: 11st 6 lbs

Hi Girls!
Welcome Mishie09!! woweee!! fantastic weight loss!! please weigh in whenever is good for you :). i only started yeterday so il prob weigh in on friday, i think its good to have different weight in days, that means if we struggle one of our weigh in days can cheer us up!
Sammyzip50, Im not a mental health nurse but im a mental health support worker, i work in a medium secure unit. i applied and had a place to study nursing but i fell pregnant with my daughter and deferred it. im now studying hairdressing!!! lol, i think until Ellie is at least 5 uni is out of the question. your job sounds really ineresting!! i bet the approach to mental health is completely different out there, do you enjoy what you do?
Mishie09, what do you do? tell us all about you?
My name is really Fie, not Fabregas4 :)

I was doing so well on the plan and then after 1 blip I found I couldnt get back into it! anyway I feel so bloated and no clothes fit well so im going to force myself to get through the next 4 days! I will join you all in this christmas quest if that is ok! xxx

I plan to do sole source till christmas then maybe step up to another plan. I find it is easier for me to just cut out food completely than mix the 2. anyway I am currently 14 st and want to be around 12 st 10 by xmas! It has been around 15 years since i weighed under 13 stone so will give it my best shot!! just been tempted by a sandwich, got the bread out of the bread bin 3 times and kept talking myself out of it!! I won in the end thank god, nicky 1 bread 0!! xxx
