    My weight fluctuates too much, so I'm not even going to look at the scale until the end of the month.

    I have already lost about 5-7 lbs this month and it's only the 12th, so I may join this challenge! Success guaranteed! ;)

    Ok I looked up my results.

    Feb 1: 202.5 lbs
    Feb 13: 198 lbs

    So I "only" lost 4.5 lbs this month. That's means that I am not ahead on schedule, like I thought, but perfectly on schedule. However, my real target is 9 lbs for this month (1 kg per week), which is my upper limit. 10 lbs is possible, though. Anyways, I just focus on eating and exercising healthy, and I will see what results come out.

    @justdance2 - you seem to be doing well this month. That's great!

    @allcdnboy - interesting how christmas often causes people to lose weight. I wonder if that is worth it? :p
    I like that you don't weigh yourself a lot. That's a good move. I weigh myself like 4-5 times per week, and I see a lot of fluctuations (which I just ignore, but still it's interesting to see such a signal-to-noise ratio).

    Soo here are my results so far:
    Feb 6: 69.4kg
    Feb 13: 68.7kg

    It means i only lost 0.7kg wich is roughly 1.5 lbs. Lets see if i can do better this week or i won't lose the 10 lbs this month

    0.7 kg in a week is great. In my mind, losing 0.5-1.0 kg is the ideal. Less would be fine too, but it would become a bit slow (but even little steps forward can accumulate to something big... patience is very important). More than 1.0 kg would be unhealthy, if sustained for more than a few weeks. So, keep on going, you are doing great! :)

    And to be honest, losing 10 lbs in a month, especially one that is so short as February, is a bit ambitious. It's really pushing the edge of what is healthy (in the long run). That's fine, but I mean if you lose 5 lbs in a month, that would already be great.

    Great work everyone. I'm getting a little bit curious as to how I'm doing. I'll probably weight myself in the next couple days ... *crossing fingers*

    Feb: 16 - 81.4 kg (179 lbs) .. not looking so great. Only 1.6 kg lost. I don't think I'm going to reach the goal, but I know if I stopped the drinking, I could at least get 3/4 of the way there. We'll see. This weekend I'm in a conference out of town, so it'll take a bit of work to keep the calories down and find some time to exercise.

    Still a nice step forward! If you continue what you're doing (and perhaps stop drinking from now), you can lose 3-4 kg before the end of the month. This isn't 10 lbs, but who cares... challenges like these are tools to get you in the right direction, they are not the goal themselves. :)

    2 lbs to go before the end of the month. It looks like I will be successful in this challenge. That would be a first! ;)

    Good luck everyone else too. Even if you are not on schedule for the 10 lbs, even if you manage to get just a few pounds, that's still progress. The thing that matters is what you do today.

    well, I got a hair cut and dropped another lb. Lol. Wish I had more hair to cut off. Had a busy weekend out of town for a conference, so curious to see how things changed over the weekend, so will weigh myself again tomorrow.
