    THE CHALLANGE: Lose 40 lb. by July 31st.

    DURATION: Thursday, May 1 - Thursday, July 31

    THE DEAL: ALL losers MUST post a pic of their midsection (gut) as their avatar or in their sig - YES, that means only ONE winner! :claplow:
    If no one does this challange w/ me and I don't meet my goal I'll post my gut pic myself...

    REASON: Motivation for healthy and fit lifestyle AND my summer semester ends that day and I'll have the month of August off from school.

    NOTES: ANYONE can join at ANYTIME but if you're really serious about losing weight, please have your weight in by Thursday, May 1, 6 AM.

    PLEASE UPDATE ONCE A WEEK ON THURSDAYS!
    - include your:
    starting weight (s)/ current weight (c)/ loss since last week (wl)/ loss since start (sl)/ goal weight (g)

    [3 week example:]
    Week 1: 303 (s) / 300 (c) / 3 (wl) / 3 (sl) / 263 (g)
    Week 2: 303 (s) / 298 (c) / 2 (wl) / 5 (sl) / 263 (g)
    Week 3: 303 (s) / 295 (c) / 3 (wl) / 8 (sl) / 263 (g)
    ...and so on...

    --- I'll go first ---

    WEIGH-IN (week 0): 303 (s) / 303 (c) / 0 (wl) / 0 (sl) / 263
    ** The numbers are as of RIGHT NOW, I'll repost the correct number on May 1st. ***

    Good luck! :bb:

    Ill join this. Never can have enough challenges.

    I will post my weight on May 1st since I'm sure its going to be different. June 15 I plan on starting SGX protocol so hopefully that will help me out :D

    I predict my weight will be in the 348-350 range. Was at 359 last Saturday.

    No problem. I got to lot to lose myself, been going at it since mid January. Started in November then Mid-December I hit the holiday slump. So far since I have been doing great. Down 56 so far.

    Just get your diet in line and hit the :bb: and you will do great.

    I wanted to post my status last night but I was stuck at the airport and didn't get back until an hour ago...

    WEEK 1: 298 (s) / 296 (c) / 2 (wl) / 2 (sl) / 258 (g)

    *****
    I was hoping for more than 2 lbs... I worked out and ate right but my eating schedule was all over the place b/c I did lots of traveling... Now that I'm done, I should be able to pick it up!

    Good luck!

    Just saying Hi

    Hello there, gentlemen,

    Thank you for the challenge.

    I've just seen the thread. I'm a bit late so I will not officially join the challenge.

    I will however chime in from time to time to compare my current measures with you.

    As of today, 9th of May, I have the following parameters ;)
    Height: 5 feet 8 inches / 172+ cm
    Weight: 222 lbs / 100.8 Kgs
    BF %: 31.5% (As indicated by my Omron BF306)

    I hope to lose about 3lbs/week. I did better than that last year, but my hopeless and notorious lack of will kept me from better accomplishments.

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Week Status:
    WEEK 1: 222 (s) / 221 (c) / 1 (wl) / 1 (sl) / 190 (g)
