    Happy New Year Everyone!! A few A-Z members have been talking about weight loss and since nobody had posted to the Biggest Loser 2009-2010 thread since October I thought I'd start a new one to get us all motivated. Join in any time.

    Pick a weigh in day and on that day post number of lbs lost. You can also add tips or questions to help us all stay on track.

    WHO'S IN?

    I'm in! I can't wait! Now to try to find my scale...

    Any brave people want to do headless body shots to show off the inches lost?

    Good Idea MissC but I'm not sure I'm that brave. Maybe I will take some before pics and if I lose enough I'll take some after pics and then post them together.

    I'm in--I'll weigh in on Fridays. Not sure if I'm ready for making pictures public, but I should probably take a couple for me.

    I'm in. I thought about taking pics at the beginning, and then every 6 weeks to mark my progression. I'll weigh in on Wed.

    Starting weight: 140 Goal weight: 125

    The progression of pics is a good idea; I'm not ready to post my starting weight publicly; let's just say I have a lot more to lose than you do.

    I am in too. I am already weighing in on Tuesdays. I dilingently weighed in every Tuesday all December, and watched myself gain back the 10 lbs it took all of September, October, and November to lose.

    I am trying to do mini goals, so my goals for the next couple of weeks is to eat slower by putting my fork down between bites, and to cut out all processed ingredients in my beverages, so that I am only drinking water, hot tea with stevia or honey, milk, and maybe some natural fruit juice.

    Starting weight: 135
    Goal weight: 125

    Weigh in day: Sundays
    My weigh-ins will be somewhat anti-climactic because I'll only be losing about 3 pounds per month.

    My goal is to lose 10 pounds in 90 days. I'm on day 87 of a 1000-1200 calorie per day diet. I have to mostly stick with 1000 calories to meet my 90 day goal, but I've given myself that 200 calorie leeway a few times a week.

    I'm very curious to see where I'll be in 90 days.

    I'm in. I'll weigh myself on Monday as we don't keep scales in the house.

    Special~that sounds very doable. I want to lose the weight by the end of the school year in May so that gives me 5 months to lose 15.

    I want to play too :p! I'm actually very proud of myself, I kept to my diet even through the holidays. Had some health scares lately so I really need to make some changes.

    Could use the motivation! :thumb:

    I've been working on it so I'm in too! I like to lose two pounds a week so I try to maintain a 1000 calorie deficit per day. Usually I eat around 1400 calories because I burn about 2400 calories a day. I'm trying not to think about my whole goal, but right now I'm trying to lose about 30 pounds (I managed to lose about 20 from the beginning of October to now, so hopefully I can lose the 30 pounds by about the middle of May).
