Christmas Challenge 2007

Here it is ladies, the moment you've all been waiting for (Well at least Randi and I have...we're seriously overexcited for this Challenge!) Take a few minutes to click the links to everyone's blog because we honestly have some truly amazing women who have signed up for the Challenge. I know I have found motivation and inspiration at each of your blogs and that is what's going to carry us through on our weight loss journey to Christmas. Not gaining weight, not even maintaining weight but LOSING weight! (How much did that sound like a cheesy infomercial?!?)

So here's the deal, we each have our own personal goals, we each have our own methods of losing weight, we are each faced with the same struggles. Randi and I wanted to make a Challenge so that we could all motivate each other during this amazingly hectic time of year...which also happens to be filled with Halloween candy, Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas baking, not to mention the everyday food challenges like office doughnuts, parties, baby and bridal showers.... and the list only goes on ladies. The Challenge is just another way for us to stay accountable. So the first results post will be on October 1st on my blog so make sure everyone e-mails me their WI #s before then. Randi will be posting the results from week #2 and we'll swap back and forth. We'll keep you posted though on what's going on each week.

For those of you who want me to make any changes or if I didn't add your website or anything like that, just make sure to e-mail me. I'm not perfect (of course I'm seriously seriously close!)
DizzyDazey & Shannon. I think you guys wanted in but I didn't get any goals from you so if you're still interested (which I think you definitely should be), then e-mail me or Randi your goals and I'll add you to the list! Anyone else who wants to join, it's not too late! Just let me or Randi know and we'll gladly sign you up for the Challenge! :) We can SO do this girls!
(PS..I dropped my goal by one pound because I saw a 1 lb loss this morning on the scale! 9 lbs to go before Christmas!!)

  14. Hallo :)

    Popped a wee comment over on Randi's page, but will re-do it over here too, just in case :)

    I'm hoping to drop 12lbs... that would make me the lightest I've been since I was fourteen! Yay!

    Best of luck to everyone on here, too!
