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.

    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.

    Wondering how everyone is doing? I know weigh in day isn’t set u til the 5th, but I did step on the scale today. 280. I know that the first week is the biggest loss, but I am still excited. This is my final journey. The last time I am going to lose this weight. I don’t want to see 285 ever again!!

    Pretty happy with results for Week 1 - Diet was on-point Mon-Fri, and had some meals out that I was not planning on over the weekend. All in all, I'll take it.
