I think you should try to make the competition about keeping to healthy habits rather than have it revolve around the scale. The Biggest Loser is a fun show, but it is a manufactured situation, not how the majority of people develop lifelong habits. Ninety-seven percent of people who start traditional diets are fatter two years later, even if they initially lose weight. I would hate to see you go down the road so many women of my generation did (I'm 58). I dieted my way from 145 to nearly 200 lbs. and wish I'd never gone on the first one. Commit to moderate eating, real meals, learning to tolerate moderate hunger, good amounts of freggies, no bingeing, and consistent movement. These habits will serve you well through all the stages of your life. Then find other things in life to put your energy into! It will make for a more rewarding life. emoticon

Hiello everyone, this is my first day on spark people and thought it'd be great to connect with people in a similar situation as mine. A little about me I'm from San Diego, 23 and wanting to lose 10-25 lbs for summer and graduation this fall. It's ironic that at my age and loving doing exercise and outdoor activities I have a problem controlling my weight. I think the main thing for me is consistency and losing the willpower three weeks into a nutrition and workout regiment. I have two other girlfriends in the same boat and were having a friendly "biggest loser" competition amongst us, I think having a competition will me great motivation to shed those unwanted lbs. thanks for reading!
