Default Fourth of July Lose 10% of Your Body Weigth Challenge Discussion

OK, here it is. We'll do this the same way as the April Fool's Day Challenge. This will be the discussion thread and we'll have a Check-in thread so everyone can post their starting info and updates.

So, the goal of this challenge is to lose 10% of our body weight.

I'm at 258 as of this morning, so my goal is (rounded off) to lose 26 pounds by the Fourth of July, which would put me at 232 pounds.

We've got 95 days to get this done, so let's go!

Regards,
Michael

I am starting this challenge at approximately 265 (I haven't weighed myself in a few days). This gives me a target of 26.5 pounds but I am going to aim for 30 pounds and set my target to 235.

I'm really excited to join the challenge this time I think the 10% goal is a GREAT GREAT GREAT idea/motivator!

My weight this morning was 195.1, though I think that some of that is water-weight. Regardless, I'm going to use it. That gives me 19.5 lbs. to lose by July 4th, which I'll round up to a nice, even 20 to get myself to 175 (175 will also be 40 lbs. lost for me, which is about half of my total weight loss goal. All kinds of milestones to hit!!)

Thanks for starting this up, Michael, and good luck to everyone!

Hello to all,
So my starting stats for this challenge, I am 163 so need to lose 16 pounds by July
For this challenge aside from focusing on my food intake (which I think mostly have it control) I really need to up my activity level, I need to be more disciplined and constant, so will keep you posted. Also I think I don't want to do the weekly weigh in so I will do bimonthly.
See you all around and let's stay motivated!

I can't wait to get started! I was at 327 when I decided call it for the April challenge (even though I've actually dropped another 2 since then). I'm still listing my start weight for this challenge as 327 (more impressive loss by the end that way )

I'll be aiming for a 32 pound weight loss. LET'S DO THIS!

You know, on second thought I think I am going to list my start weight as 325. Keep things more challenging.
Percentages remain about the same. Still 32 pounds... 32.5 to be exact.
