    I'll do it 1 on 1 with u. We should post pics every 2 weeks. I've let myself go pretty bad the last week due to a stress fracture in my foot preventing me from running, plus being back home eating my mother's homemade chocolate chip brownies. I need something to motivate me into giving it my all for the rest of April so im ripped come June.

    My Stats:
    -------------
    Height: 6'2"
    Weight: 180.4
    BF%: 12-13%
    Goal: 8%

    I'm kinda' interested too (if there's still room) as my BF% may be similar (when averaged between both the scale's & tape measure's two different readings).

    But what's the goal? Get to a certain BF% ?

    i was thinking whoever's ΔBF% @ ΔTime(t) was the greatest would win or something. I have the biggest challenge cuz dropping the last few bf% is always the toughest, and ive been trying for months now.

    Id say we all take before pics (today) and not post them until the end of the month with the after pictures.

    yeah, sounds good. i'll see if i can take some pics today. Hmm, this is my first challenge i'm excited. haha. Ya i say the we base it on the best overall change, based on BF% and weight in the amount of time we choose. How long shall it be?

    I have a website, we can also put up our stats there daily? I think that would be pretty cool. let me know.

    I plan to eat a little cleaner and start doing cardio, i already lift throughout the week, i'm in a couple weight lifting classes at my school. I was 190 at the beginning of december and i've gained about 10lbs:( hopefull this will help me get to my ultimate goal of 160-170, good luck!

    can I get into this too? I used to run a lot, but messed my hip up back in Jan. Put on about 15 lbs and just recently been riding my stationary bike to try and get some of this weight off. I don't know if my bodyfat is really accurate. I just used some website and plugged the numbers in. When I first joined my gym they told me it was 13 % and I weighed 157 lbs. This is the website i used http://www.he.net/~zone/prothd2.html
    Don't know if it's the best, but I'll use it for consistency in the challenge if there's still room and time.

    lets say 6 for now. if need be, we can continue to 8 or 10 after the 6 is up (for example - if none of us make progress ;))

    so 6 weeks for now, and lets post pics after 3 weeks, before(today) and after(3weeks from now)

    Nope, ur def. not the only one in this challange. Sorry I haven't been updating, i go to school and work fulltime. But I will try to update as much as possible. I just got back from my work out about 20 min. ago. An hour on the stationary bike, and i tried to touch base on all muscle groups. I got home and weighed myself

    Weight: 196.0
    BF%: 16.6

    :-D that's pretty amazing to me, i started the week at 201, but I think it'd be mostly water weight. Although I have been doing an hour of cardio for the past 4 days. hmm, so no my friend u are not the only one in the challange ;) I am keeping daily logs of my weight morning and night and my BF% daily.

    I think if i can start eating healthier i might get results even faster... but I am in college, w/no transportation so i can't really just go to the store and get what i need :-\ but I shall go this weekend after work.

    Good Luck!

    ...does anyone have AIM?

    Today was just a plain ol' calorie burn day. I did an hour of cardio on the bike today. I started to feel a pain in my hip, so we'll see how long I can keep that up. Ate around 2200 calories, mostly bread, plus an apple.
