Wedding is June 8th of this year. Between now and then, I need to drop about 20 pounds.

I plan to do it by giving up food. I'd give up beer, but I'd die.

This little dude in my sig was #2 and resulted in about 20 lbs extra round the middle. Got back into homebrewing, too, which didn't help. Running always worked for me but now I've got a bum knee and was advised against it by my Dr.

Low carb + weights...we'll see what happens! I'm with most of you - I can do without food, but beer? No can do, professor.

I might as well throw my hat into the ring here as well...

A little over 8 years ago (I'm now 30), I weighed around 295. In about 18 months I got down to 185lbs. I followed the Bill Phillips (of EAS) book Body For Life (wiki) religiously (Bill says weights on Day 1 3 5 and Cardio on 2 4 6, with Day 7 off (including eating/drinking what you want on the 7th day). I, for a while did cardio almost 7 days a week, sometimes twice a day for a period of time). Needless to say, that's tough, near impossible to keep up (nevermind years later being married and having a child). After cutting back on overdoing it, I leveled out at around 195. Years later (after getting married, and having a child), I have fluctuated between 200-230(which is what I currently am at now). So at this point I'm really just jogging/running 3 miles 3-5 times a week and haven't been lifting weights. Eating and beer drinking haven't been the best either. So hopefully the New Year will be some form of inspiration to get down to my goal weight of 195 (45lbs to lose). I'm willing to check in weekly/bimonthly/monthly/whatever if anyone else is game...

I'd be willing to check in. We could maintain a "support group" type thing...

Buncha guys/gals sitting at their computers, drinking beer, talking about how they're having trouble losing weight?

j/k

Sounds like a good idea. Last year I think there may even have been a contest. I don't need that, but knwoing you all are "watching" might keep me from reaching for that "extra" brew...

Sounds like it is time to start up the HBT weight loss swap again. I am hoping to shed about 35 in the next 6 months. Quit drinking on weekdays and started working out again.

Yeah, the communication would help keep us honest. I know I'd benefit from it...

I don't need to lose much, just what I gained over winter break (I work at a school and we're off for a week). It's scarier that I gained 10 lbs during that time!

Back to biking to work in the cold and the wind. But if the alternative is giving up beer...
