Anyone up for a post NY challenge to help keep each other on track? I know a lot have resolutions to continue/start to lose weight. I didn't have the time to fully focus on it before the holidays but am feeling more optimistic about 2010 and the holidays being over.

No biggie if no one is interested, just thought I'd throw it out there.

Happy 2010!

I'm interested, but the Christmas Challenge is honestly intimidating to me. I want support to loose weight, but weekly weigh-in's are very stressful for me. I think I'll keep track of my own progress, but I know that if I have set backs, having to "report" is going to really put me off the whole thing. That's just me personally. I am teaming up with DH, so we're going to be each other's support IRL, so I'm really hopeful that I can do it.

Sure, I'm in. I like weekly weigh ins because they help keep me accountable but if you don't like them you don't have to do that part!

I am interested. Would love to have the accountablity of having to report ins, it doesn't have to be weigh ins, but maybe work out or eatting updates.

Meagan- we still need to get together when the weather is nicer and go walking or something with the boys.

I'm in. Sorry I did such a crummy job with the Christmas Challenge. I got discouraged.

You didn't do a crummy job! ((hugs))

If no one protests, or wants to do it themselves, I can take the initiative this time. I promise not to leave in the middle ! Who is up for starting on Monday? Do we want to make our first goal our LO's second birthdays? That gives us a good three months (for most of us).

Erin, if you're up for "hosting" it that'd be awesome! I like a three month goal as well, gives us plenty of time.

I found that even though I didn't see much progress with the Christmas Challenge it was still helpful to have to admit to others that I wasn't getting anywhere... and everyone's support is great!

See you all tomorrow for day 1!

Ok, I will post a starting thread tonight sometime because I will probably be too busy in the morning to do it. Should we make the ending date April 1st? That way we all end on the same day.

I think an ending date instead of first birthdays is a great idea... Otherwise I'd be sitting there done while the rest of ya go, LOL.

Yeah, I thought it made more sense that way. BTW, Kel, I adore your avatar. So funny!

I had another idea. Some people don't want to weigh in, so I thought instead of a weigh in thread, we could do a check in thread. So if you want to weigh in, you can, or if you just want to share what you did that week, or how you feel about how things are going, there is that option too. A little more all inclusive?
