    I am so down. I need a way to keep in shape (especially during the cold seasons).

    This is exactly my thinking, actually. It's so easy to ignore exercise until it starts to warm up, but by then it's too late if you are trying to look your best for summer.

    Do these things ever work? Are there progress pics, etc? Someone should start one of these in the middle of the year to avoid the new year's resolution stigma.

    Exactly! I'll be home from school for winter break by the time the challenge starts and I'd love to break in the treadmill my family bought on black friday.

    Everyone: Is the 6th or 13th a better start date? I'm defaulting to the 6th unless I hear otherwise.

    The very first one we did helped me go from around ~290 to ~260, and even though I've gone up and down, I've never gone back up to that high. (I've generally hovered around 275.) It didn't work any miracles, but it helped. Certainly didn't hurt.

    The thing I noticed is that 4-8 weeks was when most people quit when we started during the summer. I don't see a January start date being any different.

    Tip: the quickest way to lose weight (in addition to exercise) is to switch to a low-carb diet. This is the way to go unless you have specific issues that prevent you from following such a routine. The pounds will literally fly off. Also, you can supplement with stuff like forskolin, resveratrol, acetyl l-carnitine, etc to help things along.

    Hadn't heard about the forskolin or resveratrol supplements before. Have you tried them?

    Resveratrol is good for endurance, and it normalizes appetite and blood sugar among other things. It also got rid of my acne. Acetyl L-Carnitine helps with blood sugar and endurance as well. Forskolin does something to increase fat burning (might be a myth). I don't know if it made me burn any fat, but while I was on it I had my blood and urine tested and ketones were found at high levels (which indirectly signals fat burning).
