Inspired by the recent thread "getting into shape" I think it'd be cool to do a weight loss challenge on UG.

Here's how I see it happening:

We take a month (August) and each lose as much weight as possible.

But before the month starts we take down our entrants starting weights along with picture proof (of the scales, I guess) and keep updated for the whole month.

We'll have someone take care of the results and workout percentages of weight lost. By the end of the month, the person with the highest weight loss (determined by percentage) wins!

Me and my family did this a few years back and it was very motivational. I lost 31lbs in about 4 months!

There is no set way to lose the weight, you do it however you can.

Obesity is a problem kids, let's make it a competition.

will I get disqualified if I do this Ghandi-style?


Nope.. As long as you can prove you lost the weight then it's viable..

You can chop a freakin arm off if you want. I jsut don't recommend it, is all.

I would, but I'd have to gain weight to lose first

Sure... Shall we do two competitions in it? Weight gain vs weight loss?

Although gaining weight fast is realllly bad for you

Quote by guitaristren
.....


What if it turns a bit too competitive and everybody goes anorexic?


Then it'll be a tough call on who wins.

I might do this, I'm sort of dieting anyway. I went over 17 stone the other day.


I'm nearly 20 stone so no need to feel embarassed.

That's life

But if you want to do a weight gain challenge too go ahead, but I won't be in it. I only want to put on about 10 more pounds or so

I think I'll leave it at weight loss then, I don't want to encourage overeating I'm practically the posterboy of why it's a bad thing.
#12
I'm 22 stone and i'm going on some mad diet tomorrow so i'm up for this.
#13
I'm in....I think I have a scale. I'm just chubby around the stomach and thighs.

I've tried insanity before......it the equivalent of suicide.
May the Schwartz be with us! 2012

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.

I would be all for it but I have a super busy next month and I probably won't be working out as much as I should be.

Insanity?

Also, if the first month goes well and everyones being quite consistent, then we'll see if anyone wants to extend the challenge for extra weight loss.

Doing that in one month is extremely dangerous, so you know, Aim for like 15-20

I'll probably lose 30 over the course of 2 months, probably three.

I propose a "Seth Dee Pitt" weight loss challenge in which you lose weight by masturbating as much as possible when you could be playing pokemon or hanging out with girls.

DEpends, those ultra-low calorie diets (where you only drink milkshake or whatever) can make you lose 40 odd pounds in the first month, and are pretty safe.

Does that mean you're in?

Quote by MakinLattes
so, when do I start starving myself?


The way I see it, we'll start taking starting weights as soon as possible.

Anyone who hasn't submitted their scales picture before the 1st of August will be disqualified.

Here's what we'll do. If you all get a picture of the scales saying your starting weight, PM them to me, and I'll cut them down for just the weight and label and whatnot, then they'll all go in the first post of the tracking thread.

You can post your progress whenever you like, but it only really matters to have a new snapshot on the last day of the month.

Feel free to share tips but remember - this is a competition

EDIT: Don't forget to sticky

So you want the pic of the scale when? The first of August? Or will anytime between now and then do?

Any time between now and then as long as I have it by the 1st so I can launch.

EDIT: We'll measure in LBs because it's the most accurate for bodyweight.

I haven't been running like I should be, so it could be up to 12%

But I'm about 136 pounds at 5'6", doing pretty well

I can still participate if you'd like
