2.77 Club - Avg weekly weight loss to lose 100 lbs btwn May 1 - Dec 31

Anyone out there looking to reach a 100 lb weight loss goal by December 31st?

As of May 1st, 36 weeks remain, and given my current weight (300 lbs) and previous weight loss experience, I know that this healthy and doable for me. It may not be the case for everyone. I plan to eat clean, add in regular running (C25K) and weights, and just generally move more, eat better, and look after myself - mind, body, and soul.

As is the case for many others right now, the pandemic has introduced extra challenges: I moved to become a full-time, live in caregiver for my elderly parents very unexpectedly, and let's just say that eating has been my comfort through this massive and unexpected transition. In order to succeed with this weight loss goal, I am going to have to find new, healthier ways to cope and find comfort during these challenging times.

If this scenario/goal resonates with you, please comment/join in. It would be great to meet this goal with others. :)

    Best of luck! I am hoping to reach my goal weight by the end of the year, but I can do so by losing 2 pounds per week. Is that good enough to join? I'm pretty determined.

    I'm in with you. Starting weight April 28 was 310.4, weight May 5 was 305.4. I'm doing a 1600 or less calorie diet; watching fat, protein, and carb intake; trying to exercise everyday; and tracking steps. I have pcos, hypothyroidism, and Celiac disease. My goal weight is anything under 150, really. My wishful thinking is 135. I may forget to log in here everyday, buy I'll try my best. Good luck!

    weeks 1-2 results:

    starting weight May 4: 197.5

    May 11: 195.5 (-2)
    May 18: 193.5 (-2)

    Still on target! (at 2lb/week, my excel chart predicts a Dec 26 finish; I know it is highly unlikely that I will continue to lose 2 lbs per week but it's a sweet dream and very motivational, so no haters please).

    I appear to be the only active person in this group but as far as I'm concerned it would be AWESOME if you joined in! How much weight are you hoping to lose by the end of the year? I'm hoping to lose another 63.5 pounds.

    That's almost exactly the same amount of weight that I'm hoping to lose by the end of the year! We got this!

    I weigh in on Tuesdays. I like to walk too and live out in the sticks, so I walk on old woods roads and through hay fields.

    And I have given up junk food and added sugar. Just think what a wonderful Christmas present it would be to yourself, to weigh 60 pounds less!

    Every time I go into this challenge to post, the opening scene from "Bridget Jones's Diary" where she is singing "All by myself...." goes through my head.

    When I was moving sacks of horse and poultry feed yesterday I realized that I can barely carry them and they weigh 25kg each (55 pounds). Reality: I am lugging around a bag of feed with me AT ALL TIMES.
