    We had I think 3 people willing to get in on something like this...


    I say we go for the month of September. On the 1st we weigh ourselves, and take a picture of the scale...post it here. 1 week check ins with pictures posted each week.

    Total lost at the end of the month wins....what does he win? Probably nothing...

    Suggestions?

    Don't you know that sex burns more calories then that. And you do have a gf!

    I've lost 25 lbs. this summer playing golf every day.

    There is a free app called Lose It that computes your calories per day in order to reach a goal weight by the date you designate. You can look up and log food/meal calorie count, it can scan bar codes etc. and provides calories burned for a large number of exercises. Easy way to count calories to keep yourself honest. Works on my iPhone. I went from 260 to 230 using it and use it to drop back when I feel myself gaining back. Highly recommended.

    Getting the date in the picture sucks....I don't get a paper every day and date stamps in pictures can be fudged anyway...i think we're all trustworthy enough....it's not like we're going to win money or anything.

    I'm out. While my goal is to lose about 50 lbs as well I feel a contest is the wrong way to go about it. I'm not looking to lose weight as fast as possible. Like Rock says, it's a lifestyle change I'm after.

    Agreed, I've dropped 47 lbs over the last year but have plateaued over the last 60 days or so. I have another 35 to lose but don't want to go on a diet, the lifestyle change was working but I've fallen back into some bad habits. :(

    It's not about losing weight as fast as you can regardless of health...it's about being accountable in a way that will make your life better. It's easy to cheat if no one is watching.

    I'm out of town on vacation until 5 SEP. Dunno if I will have access to scales from the 1st - 5th, but I'll try.

    I saw a thread on Reddit recently that said that people who talk about their goals are less likely to achieve them. Thought I would throw that out there.
