    I don't want to be a party pooper, but this challenge should really only be done by those who have a significant amount to lose. 50 pounds by 2020 is more than 2 pounds a week, which is the maximum rate of loss MFP allows you to set. For those with 100+ pounds to lose, this may very well be doable safely. So for the OP who wants to lose 120 pounds, this is a fair goal. But some people jumping on here with 50 or less pounds to lose, trying to lose it all by 2020 is not a good idea. It's faster weight loss than is safe for your body, and you can end up with a lot of the negative effects of rapid weight loss. There is no shame in going slower, and it is recommended for those with not as much to lose.
    .

    I completely agree. 50 is my goal, but I do know that it will be easier for those that have at least 100 pounds to lose. If those that have commented don’t have as much to lose it may be harder for you to lose this much in this amount of time. I know for a fact that my first two weeks I will lose more than 2 pounds a week because of how much I have to lose. Everyone is welcome here. You can use this challenge as an accountability post. Have a great day everyone.

    I couldn't have said it any better myself @angiejourney. This is just for accountability for me as well. My target weight each week is 1lb and if I lose more than that a week that's fine too.

    Still here and still motivated - which is my win for the day. Weight loss slowed a bit, every pound is an achievement 👍🏻

    Had a good week. Stayed with calorie goal every day. Started walking in the morning for 30 minutes. I hope to implement some weights shortly. One step at a time!!!

    Schools starting again soon, and I need to lose the 20 I put on from last semester and get back on track to hit my goal of 130.

    Was feeling less motivated this week, but still managed a very small loss. Onwards and upwards this week!

    I gained about 1/2 a pound this week. I am not going to get discouraged though.

    I would love everyone to keep posting even if there is no lose or even a gain. We can stay accountable to each other. This time I refuse to quit.

    Way late here, but I’m starting at 195lbs and I’m hoping to continue running, swimming, lifting, and of course clean eating!

    We will strive daily to stay focused on the goal of losing 50 pounds by New Years 2020. This challenge is mostly for those that have a large amount to lose. I personally have 120 to lose and I need a challenge that helps me stay focused. Weigh in weekly. Feel free to copy and paste weekly to update your weight. We are here to help spur each other towards our goals.
