You "old timers" know how this works, for newbies, we'll do this the same way as the Fourth of July 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 (of course, you're welcome to go for more or less, if you wish).
For example, I'm at 226.5 as of this morning, so my goal is (rounded off) to lose 23 pounds by Columbus Day, which would put me at 203.5 pounds (I'll actually be going for 199 or 12%).
We've got 105 days to get this done, so let's go!
PS If you don't care for "Columbus Day" for whatever reason, it's certainly OK to call this the "October 10th Challenge".
