Some of my girlfriends and I have decided to do a Biggest Loser Challenge. We'll weigh ourselves once a week, log our progress and food intake, excercise etc., set a goal, eat healthy and be there to inspire and motivate each other. I think it would be fun to do here too, any takers? Peace & Love!!

I know there is a monthly "weight loss" thread, but its not just for weight loss, as people are posting there to change habits etc. which I think is GREAT but should be a different thread, so as to not confuse matters, IMO.



As far as your challenge is concerned, I would suggest measuring too, as inches lost is often a better indicator of actual fat shrinkage as opposed to pounds, especially for women!

I had weigh in yesterday and didn't lose a damn thing this week!! Arghhh! It's SO frustrating especially because my sister and I do EVERYTHING together...eat our meals, go to the gym and go to weigh in with each other!! The only difference is she's been losing 5 pounds a week and I've been losing NOTHING!! Oh and she's omni but other than that we do almost exactly the same stuff... I may even work out a little bit more than her!!

My husband and i are trying to lose 30 pounds each. We weigh in once a week, and for every pound we lose, we put aside $5. Then when we have lost all 60 pounds, we will take a road trip together or stay overnight at a hotel or something like that with the money we saved up.

Im a little late but Im in

haha, I just switched to vegetarian, and Im making the transition to vegan right now, so my weight has been fluctuating like crazy, but I heard this is a normal side effect, so hopefully it settles down soon and I start to lose a bit more.



I went for my first run yesterday and it was murder. I used to be in the cross country team for school, and my time for 4km was 22min. But yesterday I could only run for 5 minutes and had to walk the rest, so I REALLY need to get back into shape!

good idea! i wanna do this for 2 things...

i think...im going to put away money for each day i dont buy a pack of cigs. ok, i buy some everyday for the most part. im gonna go on the patch this week...but, ill put away 6 dollars a day so i can really see how much id be saving. of course i can do this in my head but SEEING the money is more incentive.

also, if im doing the biggest loser at work...in which we win money in the end if we win....i think ill put away some money for each pound i lose as well so at least ill feel like iv won something if i didnt actually win lol.

money saved will be for new clothes and maybe a vacation!!!
