    Hi girlies (and boyies!),

    Following the huge success of a recent 12 week challenge it is by popular demand that we commence a new one that will last 10 weeks and take us up until Christmas Day!!! Everyone is welcome to hop aboard, however many or few pounds you would like to lose in time for 'The Big Day'!! The challenge will commence on Monday 17th October and finish 10 weeks later on Sunday 25th December!! Those of us who participated in the last one formed a really friendly and supportive group and it really helped us to stay focused so please feel free to join us- if you want to be involved in a community where you can be totally honest and feel nice and relaxed chatting to like-minded people then this could be just what you need in the run-up to Christmas!

    Just post here to let us know you would like to join in and state how many pounds you wish to lose in the 10 weeks (keep it realistic!) I will update the data on this first post (for ease of viewing) on an ongoing basis as you post in your weekly results and Bev will update them en masse each Sunday night as a latest post!

    Good luck everyone!! Heather (aka Funcurls)!XXX

    Each week will have a colour code which allows us to see who is on which week and who is still to update!

    Week 1 DARK GREEN
    Week 2 PURPLE
    Week 3 DARK BLUE
    Week 4 BRIGHT PINK
    Week 5 ORANGE
    Week 6 TURQUOISE
    Week 7 BROWN
    Week 8 LIME GREEN
    Week 9 LIGHT BLUE
    Week 10 RED

    People who complete the challenge before the finish date will have their data finalised in red!

    Okay. I'm in. I'll aim for 9.5lb which will take me down to bang on the nose of 12 stone.
    That's assuming I don't lose this week. If I do lose this week AND meet the Advent Challenge I will be UNDER 12 stone. That's a weight I've not seen since I was a teenager I reckon.

    Erm - I'm on my phone and forgot to c/p the other aims before I started typing. My bad.

    Minus 3.5 - to lose 9.5lb (0lb lost ~ 9.5lb to go)

    Welcome one and all!! Sorry Aesir22 if you felt excluded by the girl power thing!! Our last challenge turned out to be a very girly one so we thought we'd make a 'girly' theme of this one, but you're very welcome!! As long as you don't mind a certain amount of 'ladies' talk, which I warn you WILL happen! Feel free to chip in from a male perspective!!

    Max&GabrielsMum of course you can join in despite being in other challenges- as long as you promise to remember to post your result weekly! How many lbs are you going for?X

    I can't but not join can I? Being the official Sunday night rounder-up!

    I'll go for whatever I've got remaining on Monday - hopefully only 2 pounds. Although I may carry on depending on how I feel.

    But my main challenge is to MAINTAIN - gulp :eek:

    You can do it, you have done so well, so far!! How do you 'stop' doing it though?? It is now a "way of life"
    That is a question I actually need to answer myself too, I stick to the food side religiously,...um- most times.... but since quittting 'the weed,' I find I can drink more, without feeling effects.... apparantly a 'common' problem... Maybe I need the A.A site..lol!! Also, I am (please???) going to do better at the next challenge..

    As Ninnins says I'll do all that jazz! I update in the first post of the thread and Bev aka Pommette updates everyone's as a most recent post each Sunday night! She also does clever fancy stats and reveals the winners and sinners (or should it be synners lol)! Ooh don't worry she doesn't really name and shame those who aren't high flyers! X
