I had to post up a gain this week But I know I haven't committed 100% so I can't complain.

Congrats on the loss Michael, and others on the check in thread some nice numbers there.

Mark, hope you can report a loss soon.

Cheers everyone.

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

hi i know i'm alittle late in starting but i'd like to try this 10% loss challenge as well

my starting weight would be 233.4 pounds so that'd be 23.34 but i'll round up to 23.4 to lose so i'd be at 210 lbs by the new year.

i've lost 7 pounds snice then so thats 3% lost already

October's winding down, hard to believe!

So, we're about three weeks into the challenge and it looks like we're off to a great start!

Had a pretty good week, actually got a bit of walking in. Was pleased to see 193.5 on the scale this morning, so a 3lb. loss. I'm sure it will "bounce" up a pound as is usually the case, but as long as the trend is downward I'm happy.

Have a great week, everyone!

Regards,
Michael

What a crazy ride--193.5 last week, then a "bounce" up to 197, now a week later down to 190 even. That's the way I seem to lose these days, sure do miss the days of fairly consistent big drops!

But, that's to be expected, I guess. Did pretty well this week, no beer and only one day significantly over my 1500-1600 (around 2K).

I have gotten pretty heavy into Green Tea, perhaps that's helping? Anyweigh, I'm feeling pretty confident that I'll be into the 170's by New Years.

How's everyone else doing?

Regards,
Michael

Glad to see you doing well Michael. I find I do well when drinking my green tea. I'm expecting to post good results next Friday as I'm increasing my exercise and stopping lying to myself about my calorie intake. Mary

Mary, being honest with ourselves is very difficult. I know I have a tendency to estimate low on portions. That's one reason why I set my intake on the low side (1500). I log everything, but sometimes one just can't weigh/measure portions. I figure if I'm staying between 1500 and under 1700 then I'm "safe", regardless of minor errors.

My calorie average had snuck up to around 2k there for a while, mainly due to the occasional 6 pack of ale or meal out. At that point I lose very slowly and any more and I don't lose at all.

I'm thinking my eventual maintenance level is going to be around 2400-2500 or thereabouts. If/when I make the commitment to build some muscles perhaps that will go up a bit.

Anyway, stick to your guns and let's make the final days of 2011 good healthy ones!

Regards,
Michael

It's too easy to relax and start losing focus on portion sizes or knowing how many calories you are consuming in a day. Next thing is two weeks goes by and your weight hasn't changed.

I am constantly checking in on calorie numbers for foods and have to keep measuring portions to know i am good on what i am eating. Any less and my weight loss comes to a grinding halt!
