    I'll join in the fun. 48yo starting at 196.5 and looking to get to 175. I actually started at 202 last week, but we'll mark as of today. Might I recommend a book to everyone: Bigger Leaner Stronger by Michael Matthews. Great information on eating the right way instead of "dieting" - There is a women's version of the book as well.

    I am hoping to lose about 15 lbs ideally by June 28 (my son's Grade 12 graduation). Trying to stick to 1200 calories but the hardest part is keeping the carbs low and drinking enough water! I turn 50 in 2 weeks...sigh LOL

    AJB1014, I also want to be under 200 by the end of this challenge. I just finished battling 212 lbs for 2 weeks and finally won out. My goal is 196 for this challenge. Good luck to you!

    I'm in too! I've been hovering around 170 for 3 months when I went on a hiatus. Made the decision to get serious again on 4/7 when I set a goal to exercise every day.

    I see the doctor again on 6/21 and would LOVE to be down 15 pounds by then.
