Default April Fool's Day 10% Body Weight Loss Challenge

By popular demand (well, not really but it sounds good) I throw down the gauntlet to my fellow "FitDay Losers" (perhaps I should rethink that name) to lose 10% of our body weight by April 1st.

I like to weigh in on Saturday mornings, but to each his or her own.

I'll start:

12/18/10 300 lbs. so I need to lose 30 pounds to meet the challenge so my goal for 04/01/11 is 270 lbs.

Who's in?

Regards,
Michael

I'm in! I now weigh 178 again. I have been at - or around - this weight for 2 months now because of 2 different trips, one business, one personal. It's time to break through this barrier! I will have to lose 17.8 pounds by April 1st but I think I'll round it up to 18 so I'll be at a nice even 160!

Thanks for throwing down the gauntlet, Michael! This is a challenging time to do it, what with the holidays and I will be spending a week in New York this season so I have got my work cut out for me! Best of luck to both of us!

Rose, glad to have you on board. I met my 10% Thanksgiving goal, and today my 10% New Years goal, so I decided to start the April 10% goal a bit early. Perhaps it will help us all keep more-or-less on plan throughout the holidays.

We CAN DO IT!!!!

Regards,
Michael

Default I'm In!

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, count me in! I really need some support. I feel like nobody around me cares enough about my needs and desires to lose weight and become a fit, healthy young adult.

Starting Weight: 199.6 pounds

(I weigh in on Thursdays at 8am)

I'll just round up and say my goal is 20 pounds.

Goal for April 1st: 179.6

Count this scale-buster in! I could use the challenge. If I'm successful it should set me up well for my 5/1 mini goal to be under 300lbs. You're a great inspiration Michael, and I intend to follow in your ever-less-deep footsteps.

I mentioned in the 100+ thread that I'll be away for the holidays, so will be weighing in on Christmas eve and will return to weigh in on New Year's day.

Good luck and good health everyone!

Matt

Matt, Glenda, Spence, Alex, welcome one and all! I'm glad you have accepted this challange.

Just think how much better we'll all look and feel 10% smaller, and just in time for spring.

I'm already planning on getting my bike out of mothballs, some hiking trips, Geocaching, all kinds of out doors activities that I've been too darned fat to do.

Regards,
Michael
