Hi - my name is Andy. I want to be able to successfully complete the following by the end of November ( during a single workout) 50 unbroken kipping pull-ups (at about 5 strict and 10 kipping) 50 nose to wall hand stand push-ups (I cannot do these yet due to lack of shoulder and overhead strength) 100 unbroken double unders (I cannot do these yet due to skill' date=' good at 100 singles) 100 unbroken push-ups ( can do about 30 unbroken) 50 GHD sit-ups (can do this, but added as a way to round out the work out) 50 rebound box jumps (I am not able to do more than 2-3 at a time due to skill) I will be practicing these all month in between planned workouts to move towards November goal.[/quote']oh - also going to see if I can lose 10 lb (of fat). This might not equate to much scale weight loss, but will be a credit swap of fat for muscle.

Um.....not a weight loss challenge fiddle. I think everyone here is trying to lose weight. There have been many many weight loss challenges. There probably still are some. Lets keep our eye on the ball here.

Hmm.....I will join but not sure what goals to set......

Be able to run 3 miles without stopping by the end of November (up to 1.75 miles right now)

Increase my weight settings by 5 pounds by the end of the month

I don't think I like running but it is something different and I want to conquer it to feel more like an athlete not just an exerciser.

Not the most earth shattering goals, but they will definitely make me feel like I am progressing and not just maintaining.

I am in for 30 hours of exercise in November! I will have done 8 hours this week if I go to my yoga class today. Did 7 hrs last week. That about doubles where I was at. I want to keep up the pace I recently ramped up to! Loving it! Zumba, Gravity, Latin Heat, Yoga, and Spinning!

Maybe not earth shattering but they are goals and definitely better than sitting on the couch and doing nothing for a month. Welcome aboard.

I *really* want to do this - I'm in the midst of the 3-month stall and need to kick things up a notch. I'm starting a new job on Monday so not sure how life is going to shake out, but I can commit to upping my weights 10 lbs., biking 100 miles, and 15 hours of walking.

Hi Butter, I am in for November! Normally I get in 2-3 miles of walking a day, and do 2 strength training sessions a week, so I want to try to up that to 4-5 miles a day and 3 strength training sessions a week.(What am I saying I hate strength training!) But yup that's what I'm aiming for. Wish me luck!

YIKES I want to be Andy someday ! I don't even know what some of that stuff is !

Don't worry most of us don't either. I vaguely know it's English and I have expanded my vocab by googling some of it. Burpees apparently have nothing to do with socially unacceptable noises.

Just set a goal you think you want and the rest of us will cheer you like we cheer Andy. :)

I'm in again this month! I'm going to aim for 125 miles again this month. I would like to increase my mileage/month but the October challenge was really difficult for me to stay on top of meeting my goal. BUT...I am going to start the couch to 5K program. I have never been a runner. Even when I was in high school and in great shape, I couldn't run a single mile! I want to push myself and make November about starting my goal of being able to eventually run a 5k. Has anyone on here tried the couch to 5K?

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
