    Ok so here it is....

    Halloween falls on a Saturday this year so we will have this challenge end for the 1st of November being the Sunday so everyone weighing gets their last result put on here :)

    Set yourself a target loss and then update every week with your loss.

    This is a duration of 8 weeks of weighings. I will start us off below. Good luck everyone!

    Got on the scales for a sneaky peek and gained the 2 lb's i lost yesterday... I do feel all bloated since having carvery yesterday, i did not have a massive portion and i am pretty sure i was within my calories yesterday!

    if ur feeling bloated and u are pretty sure u stayed within ur calories then i would bet its just water weight or a normal daily fluctuation in weight. dont get stressed about it - just have plenty of fluids today and do some exercise to help u feel better, im sure by next week u will have lost it and more x

    Count me in! I'm going for a very optimistic goal, but recently I've not been losing despite being really good, so this might be the kick up the bum I need.

    I'm going for my usual 1lb per week, so 8lbs for me. have started calorie cycling this week, as my head has been all over the place and i've been going over my cals almost every day. i've worked out that sunday is my nibble day, so i'm gona make it so that i am allowed more cals on sunday and cycle them accordingly, so i have less on days that i dont struggle.

    Hi everyone, looking forward to this! I'm aiming for 14lbs for this challenge. I love the atmosphere of these challenges, very motivating!

    Off topic, did anyone watch claire richards documentary on losing weight (bbcthree)? I fell of the wagon but it actually got me motivated to get back on!

    Hi all :)

    I have lots to lose, and like these challenges, so I'll join in! Gives me something to focus on! I'm going to say 14lbs, and if I up my exercise I'm sure I could consistently lose 2lbs per week. Are we starting from next week's weigh in?

    Well Vicky, I hope that some of my luck goes your way... I have weighed from yesterday (first time I've weighed after 6 days of CCing as I forgot/was afraid at the beginning of the week) and scales are saying a little loss. So I tomorrow I will deducted what I weigh from what I was Sat morning.

    Come on everyone, lots of water!

    Good luck everyone :)

    I second the water intake recommendation, I really believe if you don't drink enough water you'll end up retaining it, as your body thinks there's a drought. There are lots of interesting articles if you search under "water retention, not drinking enough". Not sure if I'm allowed to link to the specific pages, but won't just in case!
