    Its that time again... a new month coming up... time for a new challenge

    The way the challenge works
    You set yourself a challenge for the month, and then post on here every week when you weigh in. Then I edit this main post to show how well everyone is doing.

    Why?
    I find it really motivating, and it's easier to set myself a small monthly challenge then a huge one like 'lose 3 stone by Sept'. Smaller challenges are the best I say! :D

    So... If you are interested in joining, just post and let me know how much you want to lose by the end of the month (it might also help if you post your weigh in days)

    PLEASE remember and come back and update with your losses every week :)

    Hmm, I really want to join, but I've joined every challenge since we started them at the beginning of the year and I'm yet to complete a whole month on the diet yet! :eek:

    I'm gonna be brave and do this one..I will complete too, I promise, hehe

    Starlight very wisely suggested that I aim for a simple 1lb per week (which would take me nicely to goal in time for xmas), so I'm going to say 5lb for Aug (there are only 4 weigh ins for me but seeing as this is my first week I'm going to aim for a 2lb loss for my first week and then 1lb from then on).

    So, 5lb for me please :)

    Hiya

    I'm up for the challenge if thats ok, I actually on lighterlife so don't be put off by the (hopefully) larger losses.

    For August I'd like to lose 1 1/2 stone, my weigh in days are Wednesdays so I'd post here on Thursdays.

    Good Luck

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, can I play, please, please.

    I've not joined a challenge before, and as I will be signing up with WW tomorrow evening, and starting on 1st August, this sounds right up my street. Don't know what my weight loss goal would be, as I only want to lose about 7 - 10lbs in total, but I think if I start realistically with, say 4lbs for August, that would be about a pound a week, (considering I have been SSing recently and it might take my body a bit of time to adjust!). Anything more would be a bonus. So can you put me down for a 4lb loss for August please. Thanks x x x

    I've never managed a challenge either. i want to lose 8.5 lb in August and that will take me to 17 st 7 lb. Any more will be a bonus.

    going on holiday on 25 August so will not be here at the end of the month

    Weigh In - Week 1

    Morning!

    Well I got weighed this morning and have lost 1.5lbs so 9lb in total.
    I know I should have lost more because of being on LL but I had my father-in-laws 60th over the weekend and ate all weekend so really its not a bad loss
    :)

    Have a great week

    Jennie xx
