    Calorie Counting
    Hi everyone!

    I know there isnt really many people in the calorie counting part of the forum but i just wondered if anyone would be interested in taking part in a summer challenge?

    I was thinking it lasting about 3 months, until July, does that sound reasonable? My weigh in day is on a Tuesday so will put my first weight loss down next week from this week. I was thinking to start from next week with first weight loss (W/C 19th April) until 3 months later (W/C 19th July) which gives us exactly 14 weeks to get bikini ready for the summer :)

    if anyones interested then please just pop you name on the list and how much your hoping to lose.

    As its 14 weeks and i have a lot of weight to lose i am aiming for 2stone (28lb) which would be a sensible loss of 2lb a week.

    This challenge would really benefit me as i love getting motivation from others so i would love it if you would join me :)

    Might as well join in! I didn't think there were many people in the forum but I think people are popping up!

    My weigh in day is also a Tuesday so will go from my weight next week. I am going to go for 2stone too - 2lbs a week sounds good!

    Yep! Calorie counting is the way for me! I am also trying to do at least 30 mins exercise a day - but usually more.

    I'm doing calorie counting but don't often wander down here to this board - I just forget about it because it's so quiet!

    My weigh in is on a friday so my final weigh in for this would be the 23rd July - Which us the day I graduate! If I can manage to lose another 28lbs by then that would be amazing!

    I'll join you on this, if I may? I'm calorie counting too...sort of! I try to keep under my limit but as I'm exercising a lot, I'm not too rigid about it.

    I'm actually going on hols next month and it's a bit late to achieve anything drastic in that timescale; but having a target of July will hopefully help keep me on track for my next holiday in September.

    I may not weigh in for a few weeks as I have just started a programme of resistance/weight training and my trainer has warned me that I will likely see an increase on the scales initially as I build muscle but I should still see that I am losing inches...having trouble getting my head around this because, although I understand the science behind it, I'm ingrained to believe that in order to know that I'm losing weight, the numbers on the scales should be decreasing.

    I'm starting this challenge at 18 stone 3 lbs and I'd like to be below 17 stone by July - anything more would be fantastic but I just don't know what to expect on the scales when the effects of my weight training start to kick-in.

    Good luck everyone!

    Yeah, stick me down for 21lbs. Sounds like a lot when you say it like that though! A stone and a half sounds infinitely more do-able :D
