New Years Day Lose 10% of Your Body Weight Challenge
Yup, time to suit up for the final 10% Challenge of 2011! Of course, the 10% is only a suggestion, everyone is welcome to work towards whatever goal he or she thinks is reasonable.
Like in past challenges we'll use this thread for discussion and the Check In thread for updates.
To get started, copy and past the last person's Check In thread and add your own info. We'll post starting weight and losses along the way. If you want to track your percentage, the simple formula is "pounds lost divided by starting weight".
Let's enjoy the challenge and end 2011 lighter and healthier than we are now!

I would like to join also and think this is a good achievable target.
My starting weight a few day's back was 252, and that is what I will kick off with. I intend to weigh myself only once a week, so hopefully being accountable will keep me on the straight and narrow.
Best wishes to all, Dave.
