Heeeeeey guys!! :)

Well I know there are a lot of these floating about, but I wanted a slightly more long term goal, so anyone who wishes to join me is more than welcome!!

Fourth of July marks the Declaration of Independence, so although I'm not an American, I want to make a Declaration of Weight Loss on that day!

I pledge to lose 25lbs, to mark my halfway point, by the Fourth of July!

Anyone joining me? Make your weight loss pledge here! :D xxxxxx

Of course you can! I'd advise people to aim for Fourth of July, in order for everyone to have the same target and be able to count down together, and then individually wait until your nearest WI to see the results :)

69lbs to lose between us! That's basically 5 stone :eek:

thank you - I'm aiming slightly lower at the moment as my losses have really slowed down, I'd love to hit higher, but I know I'll be demotivated if I aim high and miss by huge amounts, so aiming for 2.5lbs a week...and anything more is a bonus...seeing as I've only been getting 1 3/4lbs a week :S xx

Of course you can! Well this challenge works wonderfully for you then :) I hope this helps motivate you towards your holiday and that you have a fantastic time!

((I should probably add, I just realised I have counted my target of "-25lbs" as a loss from my start weight. So in reality, as I've had one WI and lost -7lbs, I only have 18lbs to go!))

I'm in! :)

I am going to go for 3.5lbs per week, which is 28lb/2 stones!!! Which will take me to 11stone 4lbs which is the lowest I've been in years and even lower than CD last time.

It will be nice to have another little mini group to work with to get to goal.

If I don't set myself a high goal then I don't work hard enough lol.

Great to see you've joined! Hope this group can keep you motivated towards your goal and support you when you're struggling :)

Sarette - 25lbs

Good luck everyone. 8 weeks doesn't seem so bad. Sounds better than 2 months in my mind for some reason.
Think how chuffed we'll all be in 8 weeks!!! Can't wait

can i join you too? im in for the long hall, doing 810 at mo so my losses are slower (although my poor will power probably has something to do with it;)).
we go on holiday on the 29th july and id like to slim and beautiful, but slim will do:D:D.
in 8 weeks i would like to have lost another 16lbs, which will take me to 11.10, which would be amazing for me, i would have lost about 50% of my body weight (i started ww in 2004, and still dieting,lol!)
11.10 is just above my goal, and ill be made up if i can do that, with your help maybe i can;)
