    Hi Wendi - I'm with you. Started about a week ago and was hoping to find someone else who wasn't looking to lose seventy pounds or something. But even if the goal is seventy, 5 pounds off in September would be a good start.

    I actually started at the end of August at a weight of 185.2. At the beginning of September I was 183.4. My goal weight is 178 so that makes it perfect for the challenge.

    I am on board! I am trying to lose about 11 pounds but it maybe too unrealistic. But 5 will do me good still.

    Welcome dusktilldawn. Interesting handle. If it was dawntilldusk it might describe eating habits that make us end up needing the September challenge. Five would get you almost halfway to your goal.

    Nice input, it made me laugh. Also I agree. It's a small goal I am trying to reach for now, so yeah, even 5 is great, though I might be a bit greedy at times, expecting greater results, but a nice small one better than none.

    Glad to hear it Dawn - I think it is a good plan to have small reachable goals.
    I'm now at the 180 level, which is 5 pounds lighter than when I began - and I can feel and see the difference. My stomach is getting flatter, and that makes all the difference in how I look in jeans and in that skirt I want to wear. However, two of those pounds came off in August so still need to burn 2 more to meet the September challenge. Only the 13th of the month so should be doable!

    Hi Dawn, I looked at your other postings and see we are in the same height and weight range but you are young and headed for college while I'm old and getting older. However, you'll be able to get student discounts and I get senior discounts so we have that in common. We're the same height too.
    Yes we can do it! Congratulations on all the pounds you've already eliminated - quite an accomplishment.

    Ahahahaha, yes discounts is surely a good thing at any age. Thank you so much, I'll go on and I am sure you'll too. Never too late to lose any extra pounds ;)

    I want to join too. My current weight is 151.4 lbs and my goal weight is 146.4 lbs. Hopefully I can do it. My mom is here visiting me so it's hard to diet.
