Hello all. I just wanted to say that I will be back on track. My life has changed drastically since i first signed up for this site.

I now have a 7 month old son. When I was on break from bringing him home from the hospital i was able to exercise in the mornings and ended up dropping 10 pounds. This was short lived. I also started going back to school.

My company is haveing a weight loss competition. I think this may be the jumpstart i needed. They see that the company's health is not that great and awarding large cash prizes for winners. I know that no matter what I loose it will be better but with a top prize of 2000 dollars i have to go for broke on this. I plan to exercise at least 2 times a day with extreme workouts. I feel that most of my weight is in my stomach area and will focus hard on that. I want to drop a great ammount of weight in the short 90 days and try to win the competition. I hope I am not doing this for the wrong reasons but I need to do something about my weight. The competition starts on the 15th so I have 10 days to prepare myself for this competition.

I love watching shows like the biggest loser and love the thought of making myself better and pushing myself to the limits. I hope to end the competition with a loss of about 20%. Previous winners had bosted losses of 25% but i do not think that this would be healthy for me. I am setting my goal to get to 200 wich would be 18%.

Anyone have any tips on what will have to do in order to drop this weight quickly but not risk my health in the process. I am pretty certain that the first 10 or 15 pounds will come off quick by tightening my diet and actually doing exercise.

I am also on the committe to put the contest together. I am going to reference this great site, to the co-workers in my company to help get them on the right track.

Wish me luck. I hope they enjoy this site as much as I do.

My hubby lost 45 pounds in just over 3 months eating clean (a lot of salads, vegetables, fruits, and chicken breasts) and walking 3 miles a day 5-6 days a week. He cut out all soda, chips and sweets.

Definately doable! Good luck to you! $2,000.00 would be the cherry on top!

I feel that if I elinate junkfood from my diet and perform moderate exercise i can easily drop the first 20lbs. I think i will have to move into an extreme workout regimine after i lose the intial weight. I always plateau at 205 to 200 so i will really need to key in on diet if i can get to that point. I think 20% may a more realistic goal but if I can dream why not go for broke Smile

To lose 43 pounds in 90 days is very ambitious. Go for it. Record everything you eat. Listen to your body for your workouts.
