Last year I ran a weight loss challenge for fellow bloggers in the run up to Christmas. I wasn't going to this year, but I realised that I've put on nearly half a stone since the summer - eek! I thought to mitigate some of the damage that Christmas will cause, I'll set myself a little challenge to try and lose that half a stone before Christmas!
I've got nearly 5 weeks, so losing weight at a sensible 1-2lb per week should mean that 7lb is more than possible. I've weighed in today and have started this morning, however, I thought that if anyone wants to join me I'd hold official weigh in days on Fridays. That way Friday 23rd December will be the last day of the challenge - just in time to tuck into Christmas goodies!
If you want to join me, just comment, tweet or email me and also include your blog name if you have one. If you want to start dieting today, let me know and you can have your first weigh in on Friday. If you do want to join, I'll post every Friday and you can let me know how much you have lost that week and in total. You don't have to give your starting weight, just how much you have lost.
The more the merrier! This is a supportive challenge, not a competitive one, so don't worry if you only lose a pound - we're here to support you!

I recommend a gradual and sensible approach to weight loss, so I think a 7lb target for everyone is sensible - although I find if I haven't dieted for a while, there's quite often a big loss in the first week!
