Second week in and can report 3 lbs lost so total is 5 lbs. Again was very strict Monday-thursday. Only had about 5 pints over friday to sunday. Happy with result but will hammer it this week.

Monday check-in time again. I lost another 2.5 pounds this week. 2-3 pounds a week was what I was averaging before my wedding, so it looks like I am right back on track. If I keep losing at this pace, I should lose between 18 and 27 pounds by the end of this challenge, which will put me ahead of schedule. I am also starting the P90X exercise program this afternoon, and I am anxious to see what the combination of that exercise program with the Atkins eating plan will yield.

Congrats to all the success you guys are having!

I'd like to join this challenge. However, I will have to start at the weight I was at when this thread was started, which was 210 lbs. To start today and lose an additional 10% body weight would be too aggressive. If I go with the weight back on 10/5/10 (210 lbs.) then it's perfectly within my goals.

My current weight is 203 lbs. so I've already lost 7 lbs. since 10/5/10. To meet this challenge I will need to lose 14 more lbs. by New Years Day. That puts my goal weight at 189 lbs., which won't be easy to do with all the holidays coming up. I hope this challenge will help give me the motivation to keep going. Since I started dieting back in June of this year I have lost a total of 37 lbs. so these nest 14 are not going to be easy. I haven't been under 190 in many many years.

I corrected my post. Instead of 18 to go it's only 14 to go. The 7 plus 14 is 21, or 10% of the 210 lbs. starting weight. Simple math is the hardest...lol.

Welcome aboard Mark! It looks like you are on pace to lose about 20 pounds in the next 9 weeks, so I think you might even beat the clock on this 10% goal. Of course, there are the holidays to contend with...for all of us. Best of luck!

Default late check-in

I am late on this check-in but better than never. I am actually up this week at 227. I was off my routine for almost 2 weeks but now I am back. This weekend will be another tough one because I am going to a concert with friends. Working extra hard this week to prepare for that.

Hey, great job everyone! Mark, welcome to the challenge. Diesel, those couple of pounds will be gone in no time--I've seen 3lbs dissapear over night. I'm glad to see a minor setback hasn't discouraged you.

I'll admit I was a bit worried today--went to camp last weekend and had a lot of beer and some truly awesome food. To my credit, I ate probably a third of the calories that I normally would have at camp and wrote down everything for later entry into FitDay.

So, today's weigh-in shows 329.0--2lbs. down for the week and an even 30lbs. left for my 299 by 1/1/11 goal.

Have a great week my friends!

Michael

PS I've upped my daily lunch-time walk to 7/10ths of a mile and my back and knees are holding up fine. I'll plan on making it a full mile in a week or two.

Gained 1lb this week.

Have a breakdown with diet + excerise but it's only one week of my life, right back on it today, reducing calories and upping exercise this week. Hope to hit 4 lbs loss this week but we'll see.

Default week 5

I was travelling all weekend on business. All meals in restaurants, and lots of cocktails parties with great food. Stayed focussed. Stayed between 1800-2000 calories, no alcohol, lots of exercise, and I gained a pound, 228, sigh. Oh well, onward.

A pretty good week for me. The longer walks every day (went up to a full mile in 20 mins.) are seeming to help as the scale showed 322 this morning, that's an incredible 7lbs. down for the week (checked it three times to be sure!). Our bodies are really strange--had tapered off to 2lbs or so a week from my usual 3-4 and now I get this. It will be interesting to see if there is any loss next week.

So, that leaves 23lbs. to go for the New Years Challange. Keep on keepin' on everyone!

Regards,
Michael
