October Weight Loss and Fitness Challenge


Please join me in an October weight loss and fitness challenge where we try to achieve our own goals in this month and we can support each other through our ups and downs.

If you're up for it I can add you start weight in this first post and your goal so you can easily find it at the end of October.

Feel free to share feelings, meals or anything under related.


Spudtastic:
Start weight: 83.7kg

Goal: get into 70s kg. Increase my exercise. Eat more green things in my life :-)


Jessmke

Goals: Lose 3 kg (will get me to pre-preg weight). To do my core exercises every day. To stop drinking a glass of wine every evening. And to get pregnant

I'm in!

I don't have a scale at home so I might not be able to monitor my weight loss, the only reason I know my start weight was because I was visiting my sister a few days ago and weighed myself at her house!

That would get you into the 50s. I would love to be back in the 50s and that's my ultimate goal for next May. Having no scales is not a bad thing either. I only stood on the scales this morning for an October challenge.
I'm the heaviest I've ever been and if for now I get back in the 70s I feel like I can slowly work through the 70s through the end of the year.

I've probably mentioned this before but my oldest girl is called Isla.

I am really hoping to get back to pre-baby weight before getting pregnant again, and then try not to gain so much the next time around! I have found it so hard to lose even with breastfeeding and being active. I don't want to have to do this battle all over again.

Yes it seems like a constant battle. I got to 68kg then got pregnant and miscarried, then got pregnant, put on 8kg in the first trimester, then had a missed miscarriage, then comfort ate and then got pregnant with dd2.
I didn't actually put on much being pregnant but I put on lots after.
I just want to do this once more and stay at a healthy weight. I've had my children (two is our completed family) and as I get older I can't eat so many unhealthy things. So my mind is in the right place now. Weigh once a week. And just eat healthily and make it a lifestyle change rather than ultimately about what the scale says.
I am a sugar addict so I can't touch the stuff.

I'm in! Still have almost over 6 lbs to get back to pre-pregnancy weight and I'd love to lose it before my husband returns home in a few months.

Start weight: 128.8 lbs/58.4 kg
Goals: Lose 2 lbs, exercise 5 times a week, fit into my costume for Halloween


Good luck, ladies!

I'd love to join for some motivation.

I'm trying to get back into low carb since I'm on fertility meds this cycle.

My current weight is about 221 and I'd like to lose 8-10 lbs this month.

I'm in! I'm about 132-134 (let's say 133, though the scale seems to skip that number!). I'd like to get into the 120's, stay away from sweets, and exercise 5 days a week.

Baby is sleeping terribly right now, so it's really hard to make time for exercise and stay away from sweets... But I'm feeling determined!
