Default Who wants a weight loss challenge?

In the past, the best way I have found to motivate myself was through a bet/challenge. I used this method on my "ultimate lightness mod":
http://www.lightweightmiata.com/ultimate/ultimate.htm

(of course, I have gained every bit of that weight back <G>)

Anyone want to got toe to toe (gut to gut) with me this time? I'll create a topic for it on my Lightweight Miata Forum - http://www.lightweightmiata.com/forum/ - and we can do it just for bragging rights or maybe put a small amount ($5, $10, etc) on it.

I would do it depending on the amount of weight I need to lose I think a better thing would be a body fat % contest. Cause uh, losing weight isn't necessarily the best.. losing body fat % is. Gaining muscle while losing weight will raise your total metabolic rate slightly, but enough that it helps.

Either way, if either of you need exercise plans or nutritional advise.. I'll be glad to help

OOPS, I put the incorrect link for my new forum. The correct link is:
http://www.lightweightmiata.com/forum/

The weightloss thread is:
http://lightweightmiata.com/forum/index.php?topic=21.0

I'm looking to drop from 164 to 150. When I drop the 14 pounds I'm going to buy myself XBox 360 as a present (Halo 3 and the next GTA are coming out soon)!

I am in the same boat (LOL) so to speak, I get commissioned today in the Navy and I need to lose 20# although according to neck and waste I am at 21%, 5'10" and 206 currently. Doing Jenny Craig (ya go ahead and laugh, I drive a Miata too.) and podfitness workouts. July 9th, I leave for OIS.
