    Okay, I'm in too. I really need to drop some weight. I think I have an idea for a prize to donate.

    Can I still participate across the pond? Even if I'm not eligible for the prize, I'd still like to lose along with everyone else, so count me in, in any case.

    Still trying to wrap my head around the idea that you have to be a loser to win, but count me in!!!

    OK, I'm NOT in. But, I'm cheering all of you contestants on! I've got a feeling there won't be anyone who puts out the effort that doesn't come out better off.

    I made a New Year resolution to lose weight, and joined a biggest loser competition at my workplace. Between January and April of this year, I went from 240 to 200. I won the competition, and used the winning money to buy a new Yamaha FGXsc acoustic electric guitar. (That was before I became addicted to the ukulele). By June, I had hit my goal of 180.

    The way I lost my weight was by adjusting my diet, and exercising. The exercising part isn't hard. I simply walk for 20 minutes in the morning, and spend 30 minutes on my elliptical in the evening, for at least 5 days each week. Walking, or treadmill, would be an equivalent substitute for the elliptical.

    For the diet part, I used the "17 day diet". It is a diet that is broken out in 17 day increments. For the 1st 17 day period, you are very restricted on the types of foods you can eat. It is mostly leafy greens, salad veggies, chicken breasts, and fish. There is also a very good tomato based chicken soup that I am particularly fond of. It is served in generous portions. I call it "skinny soup" because it is low in calories, but high in flavor. This first 17 day period is designed to drop 10 to 15 pounds. The next 17 day period will add more food choices, but the weight loss will not be as fast. The subsequent 17 day periods add additional foods, and after four 17 day cycles, you are back to normal. The last cycles encourage you to change your eating habits by watching your portion sizes, and limiting high calorie foods.

    I dropped a lot of weight, and I'm pretty confident that I will keep it off. I have become a lot more aware of what kinds of foods have the high calories that pack on the pounds, and tend to stay away from those. I don't feel at all like I am deprived of any kinds of foods. I now simply choose to eat less bread, cheese, fatty meats, and more veggies.

    I did it, so I know you can too. Good luck in your competition, and even if you don't lose as much as you want, you will still come out a winner.

    Mike, thanks for the tips and support! Can you point us to a good resource for the "17 day diet" you used?

    Thanks!

    Sure. I don't have the book anymore. I gave it to my daughter in law, who wanted to lose some pounds after the birth of our new grandson. But here are some links:
