Default The Tourniquet Challenge: 10 kilos in 8 weeks 23rd April to Sunday 17th June, 2012

G'day

From Tourniquet to Trim:

This is a 10 kilo in 8 week Challenge

Not a big ask, and I am setting the start date from this coming Monday, 23rd April through to the end of the Australian Financial Year!

We will be able to say 'Happy New Financial Year' and 'Congratulations on your 10 kilo loss', all on the one day!

cobie-lee is running a series of 100% Cohen challenges in other threads eg http://newyouforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13779 but as I have 10 kilos to lose I know I can do this in 8 weeks, easy, even taking into account my Birthday trip to Adelaide in the middle of May

Will you join me?

Get the fridge and pantry organised, get any deviations out of the way and out of your system, polish up the scales and let's get stuck into it starting on Monday

I have some very nice size 10 pants which I want to get back in to so come 1st July, we can have a virtual Fashion Parade in cyberspace but each in the privacy of our own homes

So for this Challenge, on Monday, please record your morning weight and the pant or jean size you are wearing on Monday, and if they are Tourniquet Fit, Tight Fit, or Trim Fit.

At the end of 8 weeks, those same pants or jeans will be Saggy Fit, and you will be down at least two sizes, or wearing trouser braces, or both!

So let's be having ya!

See you on Monday morning to register for this Challenge!!

Cheers
Kristine

Hey Cobie

Great! Don't forget to post up Monday 23rd starting weight and your pant / skirt size if you are comfortable with doing that.

We are going to loosen those tourniquets bite by bite, mouthful by mouthful, until they just fall away!

Reward: No more red marks from too-tight pants or skirts!

Cheers
Kristine

Count me in, I just started yesterday, and to get the 10kgs off in the first 8 weeks would be awesome. (done cohens back in 2010 and lost 10kg in 4 weeks...so we know we can do it!) I would love to not try and 'squeeze' myself into pants and feel like i've had a massive meal all day long! lol. Check ya monday.

You are right it is 10 weeks. Let's go for that anyway and maybe lose 12 kgs. We will see what Kristine decides. So you are wide awake and on to it.... good spotting.

Oh phew. I have a friend doing a 12 week challenge at the gym, she finishes on 30 June and I am secretly (not telling her cause that would be mean) challenging myself to lose more than her via Cohens. I thought there was 10 weeks to go.

Anyway, I'm happy with whatever, would be over the moon to do the last 10kg in just 8 weeks. Not that we can speed it up anyway, all we can do is continue not deviating, the rest is luck!

Default The Tourniquet Challenge: 10 kilos in 8 weeks Monday 23 April - Sunday 17 June, 2012

Uh Oh!

Is my face red?

OK, I have made an Executive Decision:

The Tourniquet Challenge is still 10 kilos in 8 weeks.

'10 kilos in 10 weeks' doesn't have the same 'ring' to it so the dates will have to change to accommodate my mistake.

Starting Monday 23rd April through to Sunday 17th June, 2012

Is that right? 8 weeks?


I shall ask Koh to change the original heading and we shall be all set on Monday

Cheers
kristine

Thank you, friendly Mod,

Rightio, today's weight 63.5. And I've chosen an appropriate pair of pants, complete with camel toe. (was that TMI?). Let the shrinking begin!!!

I'd love to do this.
Todays weight is 78.5kg.
Just have to see if I have an old pair of pants that will do up enough to be torniquet tight!

Dear fellow challenge friends,
today's weight is 79.1, the skirt is size 14 and i cannot do the zip all the way up, so have a top covering on the outside. It would be nice to be able to tuck a shirt in and do the zip all the way up with room to spare. Here goes, bring on the detox. wishing you all well ZQ
