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?

% weight loss yeah? And a pic with the day's date? Or do we trust each other not to 'fudge' the figures. Lol

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.
Sex can be the bonus calorie burns. When it happens... Lol.

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.
