Hi all,

This is the first time I've ever started a challenge, but I figure I can't be the only one who is hoping to look smokin' on New Year's Eve this year, right? So I thought... why not get a group of people together for some motivation while we all work hard to look great in those New Year's dresses (or suits, whatever you're into :))

So here is how I figure it can work: there are11 full weeks (starting this Friday) before New Years's Eve. I propose we all come up with a number we'd like to see - pounds lost, inches, whatever it may be. We can start with our current weight and the weight we'd like to be come 2013. We can check in weekly (or whenever you weigh yourself) and log losses (or gains, no shame). We can post photos, little motivational quotes, successes, failures, etc. Then, at the very end we can all post a photo of ourselves looking fabulous on New Years! What do you think? I think it will be fun! Join me?

I'll start with my stats:
Name: Charlie
Age: 24
Height: 5'3
Current Weight: 162
Goal Weight: 150

Post your stats and let's start 2013 off with a bang!!!

Awesome! Welcome, ladies!

I do my weigh-ins on Fridays so I will probably check in the day after tomorrow (although there probably won't be much of a change). If you weigh in on a different day you can log it here too. Check in often to cheer on our challengers!

Feel free to send me a friend request as well! I'm excited to meet all of you!

I don't have to be 140 to be happy but trying to tone up. Lacking control, and I need the dedication I had before.

I don't have much experience with groups (as in I didn't even know they existed) you think it would be better to have one? If so I can totally make one! What does everyone think?
