Hello all! Only 45 days left till Christmas....yikes!!!!
Our awesome fellow WLS champion DashofPixieDust8 is passing the baton to me to run this challenge, as she has a LOT going on right now! I have soooo appreciated all the time and effort she has put into challenges. Soooooo....are we ready for the Holiday Challenge?
I know for me personally, I really need accountability and encouragement around the holidays. It's way too easy to get off track with the goodies, parties and festivities. So to help us stay on track as much as possible and to reach some goals, I think a Holiday Challenge is in order!
Basically, the rules are exactly the same as DashofPixieDust8 has been posting in previous challenges. The only thing is that I cannot give out prizes. I'm sorry- I know, I'm a scrooge! No, I'm really not, it's just that I can't commit to buying prizes at this time, however, reaching or even exceeding our goals is rewarding enough, right? ;-) Slight change to note: We will have Wednesday Weigh-ins.

This challenge will run from Wednesday, November 15th (beginning weight and goals posted) to January 10th (last weigh in). I will do my best to post to the spreadsheet within 1 - 2 day of receiving your weight. I will recalculate the figures as soon as I can following the Wednesday weigh in . You may post your weight at any time during the week if Wednesday is not your weigh in day!

This challenge is for everyone. If you are pre-op, post op, in maintenance or looking for some accountability; no matter if you are sleeve, band, rny, bypass, all are welcome- this challenge is for you!

Please Post Your Starting Weight between today and November 15th and Goal Weight (what you would like to weigh at the end of the 9 week challenge).

You can cut/paste this below and fill it in on your post -

Goal Weight:
Current Weight:
Today's Date:


1. Post your weight on this thread every Wednesday, Specifically 11/15 (beginning weight), 11/22, 11/29, 12/6, 12/13, 12/20, 12/27, 1/3, and 1/10 (last day).
2. If you change your screen name please let me know.
3. If you miss 2 or more weigh-ins, I will assume you no longer want to participate and your name will be removed from the spreadsheet.
4. If you miss a weigh in on Wednesday, no problem. Just post it asap.
5. We are all here to support each other if you post a question anyone can answer.
6. You will know your weight is updated on the spreadsheet once I've liked your post!

The link to the spreadsheet will be posted soon (before 11/15) . In the meantime please feel free to post your beginning weight and goal! Have fun, and good luck with this challenge!Remember we are all here to support each other! I look forward to running this challenge with you!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
