I'll participate, though I weigh in every Saturday morning. Was at 375.5 this week, so let's say I have 38 pounds to go by Turkey Day (turkey, yum!). That should be doable as I'm averaging around 3 lbs. a week or so.

I'm game

Weight this morning 225

That makes it 22.5 lb to lose.

Game on!

Edit

Just noticed that I type 25 lbs to lose, it should be 22.5 lbs lol

I am in also. I would have weighed this morning, but the scales weren't in the locker room at work. I am going with the 240 pounds that I weighed the other day. So, 10% of that is 24 pounds off by Thanksgiving.

I am in as well.

Currently 230.8 so 23.8 pounds. That puts me well on pace to get down to 200 by Christmas which was my original goal. I have recently added Interval training into my normal running routine so I hope that will help!

I'm in.
5'10"
Currently 200-205 (depends on the day) scale says about 24-25% bf.

Thatíd put me at 180 Ė and although itís probably not realistic, I didnít think 199 was either (hit that a few months ago).

I'm looking for some new motivation, and I think this just did it.

I've been cleaning up my nutrition for months now - i'm down to lean meats most of the time, and some of the time i'll cheat and have red meat (in any of its forms).

So far it's protein in the early AM, a quick 2 eggwhite omlet at 9ish (cooked in the micro @ the office), a pre-workout shake at 11:30, workout @ 12, post workout shake @ 1, quick lunch (<10 min scarf) at 2:30, cottage cheese or other high-protein snack around go-home time, and a smart meal when I get home with the fam.

I think I'll be upping the running for this challenge - it's a little over a lb a week - that's more than doable.

Good luck to us all.

I'll be re-posting in a few days so i dont expect much change from where I'm at now, but it'll be an update none-the-less.

btw - it's a good day to have our weigh-in... great motivation to keep it clean thru the weekend!

Well, I am back from vacation. I couldn't get to any scales Monday, so my weigh-in will be this Monday. I am probably the same or maybe gained a pound. Damn family vacations.
