It has finally started guys! Presenting..... *drum roll*

Hehe... So, we actually managed to get a bunch of friends (about 10 of us) who want to lose weight for various reasons to start this challenege. The contestants will have a to pay a small entrance fee and by the end of the 7 week challenge (6 June - 24th July), the winner who loses the most weight (by percentage) will take the pot! Haha! Just a small sum for motivation sake la.. :P Anyways, so the official weigh in was yesterday in my house because I have a digital scale.

So, I'll be first introducing the contestants to you one by one and will also try and update you on everyone's progress throughout the challenenge.

First contestant - we have Mark Leo (left most photo)!
