A Birthday Challenge

Every morning since I've started blogging, I find a couple of weight loss blogs to follow. This morning, I found For The Love of Me. Right now, she is working on a challenge to lose 40 lbs. in 111 days! She even made a super-cute, tear-away, countdown calendar to keep her motivated. I loved her brilliant idea, so I'm borrowing it :)

Here's the link to her challenge:

My challenge to myself is to lose 50 lbs. (not counting the 14 lbs. that I have already lost) by my 32nd birthday (May 29). I'm going to start the countdown on Monday, so that gives me 118 days to reach my goal. If I can continue to lose weight at an average of 3 lbs. per week, then I'll make it!


I'M READY!!!!!

P.S. Have y'all seen that show, "I Used to be Fat," on MTV? If those people can lose 90-100 lbs. over a summer...then I can lose 50 lbs by my b'day!


  1. Girl I am right there with you. My 30th bday is in March and I have a goal to reach also! Would prefer to go over the small goal. :) Good luck! I have enjoyed reading this! :)

  2. Sounds like a plan! I'm here for you!

  3. I really like the 'I Use to be Fat' on MTV too. It is really motivating. I figure if they can do it in such a short amount of time then surely I can too!

  4. I just found your blog and I really like it, I just started losing weight myself. Hopefully we can support each other. Good luck. And that calander idea is too cute :-)
