We're heading towards that scary time of year, folks! I'm not talking about Halloween. We all know that pales in comparison to how many calories we can put away on Thanksgiving. So let's join hands and help support one another to stay on track with our eating and exercising. The Halloween challenge is almost over and many of us are coming pretty close to the goals we had set for ourselves, if not reached them, so I'm hoping to get even more people on board with this Thanksgiving challenge to inspire one another to keep up what we've started and press on to reach our next goals we set.

So, come on everyone, the more the merrier! Posted Image You can join in at any point, but I thought I'd just get this thread up now to get the word out early. If you join now, just come back on the official starting date of November 1st and state your starting weight and then what you'd like to weigh on Thanksgiving morning. Or if you'd rather concentrate on a size goal, that's great also. We only have 4 weeks during this challenge, so lets really give it our all. I hope to see everyone from the Halloween challenge join as well as lots of new faces.

Starting weight: 169
Thanksgiving goal weight: 162

You are very welcome! And I, too, will have to up the exercise. I slacked off too much towards the end of the Halloween challenge and am just now getting back into it. Why I do that is beyond me because I always feel so accomplished afterwards.

I'm in! Even though I live in Canada, I grew up and my family lives in Buffalo, NY so I'll be visiting them for the holiday. Unfortunately, I'm having surgery exactly one week before Thanksgiving, so there are a couple of WI's I'll be missing. Because of this, my goals need to be unrelated to the scale.

My goals are:
-Complete all 4 weeks of planned menus
-Stay on plan as much as I can throughout my 10 day recovery (I'll be stocking up on JC food for this, so whoever is taking care of me can look at my menu and just microwave it for me)

I have no idea how my recovery is going to go, but I figured this might be the easiest way to try and get all my nutrition. The only other surgery I've ever had was for my tonsils last year, so I'm hoping this one will be easier on me. But we'll see!

I would love to join! This will be my first challenge too :)

SW: 166
Goal for Thanksgiving morning: 158! Getting back into the 150's would be a huge deal to me! Also, I realized 158 will move me from obese to overweight on the BMI chart. I know BMI isn't everything but it will be a cool milestone to hit ;)
My other goal is to stick with my Insanity workouts without skipping a day! I just finished Day 2 so bring it on!

Woo hoo! So happy to see all the familiar faces AND all the new ones. All of you who are new to challenges are going to love doing this. It helps to keep you accountable and motivated. It's fun seeing everyone's progress as the weeks go by. To really get the most benefit from a challenge, try your best to check in daily. Even if you're having an off day (or week) please check in. We're all in this challenge to boost everyone's spirits and motivate them to get back in the game and continue onwards. There are bound to be a few pitfalls along the way...such is life. But remember...It's not about how hard you fall; it's about how fast you get back up!

Well, I have allready been blowing the weekends this month, but I still have hope for this last weekend and rest of this month, if I ever want to get to 150, hanging at 160. So, I'm in......see you here on Nov 1st!
And, yes, I too love your pics and animated "guys" you put up!! Wish I knew how to do all that!

Shelly, it's very easy to post those pictures on this forum, moreso than any other forum I've been on. All you do is do a google search for any type of animation you want, whether it be Christmas, Thanksgiving or whatever. When you see a picture you like, hover your mouse over it, right click with your mouse and then click "copy". Then come back here and right click on your mouse again and click "paste" and PRESTO...the picture will paste onto your post. Hope I explained that right.

Oh, and to save time, I do compose an email to myself with numerous Thanksgiving animations, gifs and such, so that they're all there in one place instead of me having to go looking for them every day. I then send the email to myself and save it in a file I title "favorite smilies." I have several different emails in there of different holidays and every day smilies and animations. I just love to add them to posts. It's sort of addicting. :lol:

What was I thinking yesterday? So I did Week 4 Day 2 of my Couch 2 5k training. Then I came home and did the first day of Chalean Extreme, which is a 90 day strength training program. I'm noticing I'm losing weight but not inches so much, but I went down a size. Oh, well. Go figure. I know I have to tone up a lot so I figure I'll do the video and see what happens. So the video is 5 days a week. I train for the 5k 3 days a week. I kickbox 2 days a week. I better lose some d*#! inches! I figure if I can keep that up I'll be set for the summer.

OK, I'm in. I'll be spending Thanksgiving weekend in the camper at deer camp with DH and my brother. I plan on cooking our dinner ahead of time and I have already planned for that weekend to be one of 5 during the year that I can eat things not on a JC plan, like a little bacon, a little butter, a little pumpkin pie. My goal will be to do so in moderation and not make a pig out of myself. Also, I won't be baking cookies and other pies. I'm taking one pumpkin pie and that is IT. My DH and brother will live. For the month, I will not miss any water aerobics classes (twice a week).
