Btw, don't expect a quick reply off the admins as they're officially off for Xmas now. And for something like this they would have to discus it between them in like january when they get back in the office probably. The more people the better though. May be able to blag a prize of an amazon voucher or TSR subs if they're being generous.
Also, we putting the transformations to a public vote afterwards or are we going to let an expert(the fitness mod team or similiar) decide?

I'll join to add more girls. Will there be more specific categories or just male/female?
Think i'll aim for lowering body fat % but my goal may change depending on how my rugby goes.
Hopefully it''ll get me more focused for upcoming trials too!

I'll say I'm in for now.
Need to decide on a goal though
(Original post by Sockpirate)
I'm in goal is primarily to loose weight - put on a fair amount over the last year and a bit at uni, so aiming to slim down a bit. Also want to drop my 2k erg time, 'cause I'm aiming to stay in my college W1 for rowing next term.

In - I will be preparing for a powerlifting comp in March following much time out due to injury and surgery - gonna do this one clean.

I'm in, wanna lose a bit of weight and get fitter generally. Let's see how it goes.
Will there be an option to pull out if I fail miserably, so I don't have to put after photos on?
(Original post by mikestraws) I'm in.
Will be recomping, going from flabby to fit.
Will there be a fresh clean thread for the comp, allowing people in it to post pics, stats etc without it being full of spam from others?
I feel like i've been slacking massively since the end of summer and christmas indulgence. So will blog regularly, work hard from the new year and see where I go.
If anyone's interested, here's my previous transformation attempt but i've let myself go a bit from the last pic, which i'd like to get back to and surpass in the new year, so up for a bit of hard work.
Official prizes would be wicked, let's try and sort something out (although I won't be much use until Jan' when i'm properly back).

Wasn't gonna sign up, then remembered I actually have a camera on this laptop, so for the first time in years, can take photos!
Hopefully will make me actually do some exercise, sign me up!

I'm in. Would I be allowed to take my before pic tomorrow or Thursday?
Hoping to loose weight and also going to start doing some weights when the new gym round here opens in the 5th.

I might enter.. would be a good reason to bring up a few weak points I think I have.

I'll gladly join if I'm not too new here, probably in the fat loss/body recomp section, a few too many mince pies over Christmas I think and it'd be nice to try and find some abs!
First proper porker to post Looking to loose weight, have lost 1lb already but with the last few weeks being a bit fraught i haven't stuck to anything (or gained so thank God!) Really looking forward to this!
Hopefully these upload, I couldn't find a way of framing my computer (desktop) in the shots as I had to mount the camera on my bookshelf but I've included file data which should confirm their validity - taking pictures of myself in my underwear isn't a usual occurrence! I'm leaning towards fat loss but I put in the front double bi just in case I put on any muscle inadvertently.
Although I would usually be embarrassed to do anything like this, I think that by me having these images up it will actually keep me motivated Let me know if images are ok (trying to take with a touch screen phone was a nightmare!)
Goal is to lose body fat, and really tone up. I'm not overweight but I don't look great either. I want to look great.
Also I've scribbled my face out but I have an identifying tattoo so people I know may be able to identify me, oh well!
As regards to getting the date in, I've done a photo with the BBC News website for today and also that date website but they aren't too clear, hope this is OK. If anyone wants me to do more date pics I'll figure a way!
So, I bored everyone with my moaning about worrying about posting these photos last night. I'm still not entirely sure I want to be doing this (the photos I mean, I'm really excited about the contest itself) but I know it's something I'm going to have to do if I want to succeed with this weight loss.
In my head, I still think I look 18 stone. I'm not attention seeking; anyone who's ever lost weight whether it be a pound or 100 pounds will tell you it's hard to adjust your own self image. But anyway enough blabbering. The photos are below, I hope they're alright. I know the "back" one is a bit of a weird one but I couldn't get the angle right. But it'll be just as weird when I take another in 12 weeks so I guess it's equal at least!
Good luck to everyone. There are some wonderful bodies out there who I think look wonderful the way they are! .
Height: 5'9'' (although that's kind of unlikely to change lol..) Weight: 12st 11lbs.
