HB just contacted me with a progress report. She is proud to say that she is no longer in the "obese" category, but simply "overweight." For what it is worth, even I am considered "overweight" according to the classical definition.

So, as of June 30, she lost 54 pounds, with a weight of 197. According to my math, she is right on target to achieve the goal of the challenge, give or take a pound.

This is looking like it could be a photo finish.



Great news and great picture! Very visible difference from the first picture posted!

15.5 weeks to go, that means an average of 2.5 pounds a week
for the next 3.5 months. Thats really pushing it, leaves no room
for anything but nose to the grindstone. Could go either way.

Agree. Most notable in the picture is how happy and healthy HB looks! 37 more pounds sounds more managable than the original 90 did. I have my piggy bank at the ready just in case.....

From May 29 till June 30 she lost 8 pounds.
Thats 2 pounds a week. She needs to step it up to
2.5 or she'll miss the deadline by 6 or 7 pounds.

I would recommend 1000 calories a day and 0 grams
of carb. You can shoot for 0, you won't be able to
attain it, but can come close. No backsliding, no
alcohol, no going off the diet for just one day.

I have not read all 600 pages of this but I do have a good point/question.

This is only HALF of the problem. Most (not all) people that take weight off, end up putting it right back on so in reality, its TWO obstacles to overcome, not one.

No, I won't do that, you're not in charge.

I think that comment has been made about 20 times now in this thread.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Well, if you're all going to be pessimistic, maybe she'll just keep on going and have a new problem with anorexia and we'll get pictures of skeletor.

I think she's done great. Worry about the weight gain after her first goal is met.

(I haven't read the 6000 pages either)

But let me tell you after my weigh in I don't want to hear a WORD from anyone about what I put in my mouth that day or after. If I'm busting my ass for over 9 months I don't give a care what anyone says about what I eat after that.



She said this early on. She doesn't care about keeping
it off, this is purely a money bet for her. It's a lot of
cash.
