Default ***Official*** 2023 weight loss challenge

Let's keep it simple guys, I don't have a bunch of free time to keep a spread sheet of everyone's weight loss so lets do this on an honor system. Challenge starts tomorrow January 1st and ends April 1st.

Let's do weigh ins every 2 weeks, just simply post a picture of your weight on the scale. First weigh in will be tomorrow Jan 1st, second one on Jan 14th then every other Saturday after that. If Saturday doesn't work please post weigh in by Monday 9pm. If you miss 2 weigh ins your out.

Please keep track of your weight loss and post the difference each weigh in after the first one. Whoever loses the most body weight percentage is the winner.


At the end of the competition everyone who participated will send 20.00$ to winners choice of charity. If you drop out your still on the hook for the 20.00 if I missed anything let me know.

Good for you. Maintaining is the hardest part for me I lost 20 lbs 2 years ago and it all came back plus 5. I'm gonna try real hard to keep it off this time.

Weight loss, weigh gained.

Losing weight, keep up the good work, unless you got sick.

Gaining weight, get up from the table a little sooner, hit the gym harder, or get some form of exercise going.

I was curious as well. Usually was around 1st of every month, so once a month (per the last few challenges). Easier to keep up with that way. Whatever works though

I definitely need to do this. I’ve said it several times this past year…”this is the most I’ve ever weighed!!!” Not a great feeling. Haven’t stepped on the scale this morning….5’ 11”…. Really really close to 260lbs. Maybe this will help keep me motivated.

Just weighed in at the gym (no scale at the house and also whoever is in charge let me know if this pic doesn稚 count)

I致e gained 20 pounds since the end of October which is insane and embarrassing. Goal is to get around 175

Good luck everyone

I'm doing the same Keto diet as I did last time. This detox phase is kicking my butt. Anyone else dealing with the Keto-flu or keto-insomnia symptoms? I fill like crap today and couldn't sleep last night.

I was down around 11 lbs really quick and the last 3 days I've stalled at 10 lbs down don't know why. I've been bike riding, working out, and eating healthy. Gonna hit it harder next week

I'm only down a few so far. Haven't really done any intense workouts yet, and for me that is what would make me drop a bunch of water weight fast. But I have been eating much better. I bet I've saved close to $100 already compared to eating out every day at lunch and about half the time at dinner.

Weigh ins are tomorrow guys. I'm pretty lenient please weigh in atleast by Monday night.

Also when you post your weigh in post how many pounds you've dropped since the beginning
