I'm in! Mecompco, you are such a great motivator
My starting weight is 159 so it means 16lb for me. Well I will be happy if I make 10lb, bringing me in the 140's. My final goal is 125lb by the end of the year.
Good luck everyone!

It is foolish to keep doing the same things and expect different results.
I'm gonna try to get over feeling bad for losing focus over the last month, and barely eeking into success on the last challenge and try to blow this one away! I should be aiming for 30 pounds down by the 4th of July, but I'm going to really try for 40. The weather should be improving and there will be lots of opportunities to get outside and burn extra calories.
Good luck everyone, and keep up the great work!
Just to point out, Mecompco... if you get to 230lb you'll have lost almost half your starting bodyweight in little over a year. That would be astounding, so go for it!!
Oh, yes! Ha ha--kinda wish I'd documented my actual starting weight. I actually started on May 4th and it was six weeks later o n June 19th before my scale wasn't maxed out over it's 400 pound limit. So, the 440 is just a guess--could have been a bit more or a bit less (I suspect more).
I'll try to dig up some "before" pics to post on May 4th, though I was pretty camera shy so I don't know how recent they'll be.

Im getting more and more excited about this challenge! Im going to make my weigh in day Friday because on the weekends, even though I am extra active, my food choices may not be the best. I already cant wait for next Friday!! Haha.
Good luck to everyone with their challenge!!
