Default 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!

Regards,
Michael

I'm in for the new challenge! I guess 10% will be 17.3 lbs, so that will put me at 156.5 lbs. Make it an even 156, I guess! Wow, can't wait.

I'm in for the new challenge! I'm currently 162.8 according to my scale, so a 10% loss would put me at 146.5 -- I'll round it down to 146!

I'm starting at 279.8lbs so 27.9 would be 10%, I am rounding that to 28lbs so my goal is 251...OMG !!! If I do this right I could start next year weighing 250lbs!

I am in!

I need to lose 6 more pounds to get to my goal weight, I am certain I can do it by the end of the year and honestly would like to do way before that. So I will update the weight every two weeks.

Congrats everyone on the losses, lets end this year with a blast.

April, how exciting, 249 would be a great and milestone! Only a hop-skip-jump from there to the "ones". You can DO IT!

Hello everyone,
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.

I let myself lose and fall of the wagon too long. Today I push 140, 10% would be 14 pounds, that will put me at 126. OMG, that would be awesome.

I just took a quick scan of the results list to see where everyone is starting and realized that I am the heaviest on the list
