# April Calorie Deficit Challenge - Newcomers always welcome!

We all know that in order to lose weight you need to have a calorie deficit.  This challenge is about that deficit!

You can sign up anytime by posting in this thread and indicating which group you want to be in.

We'll start counting on 4/1/09.

-----

How it works
To start with, you choose a goal deficit for the month.  Then each day you keep track of your calorie intake and calorie output, then compute your calorie deficit.  You post in here (daily, weekly, whenever) your running deficit for the month in the form of: deficit to-date / goal deficit.  Be sure to post a new post every time you post - do not edit previous posts or I will not see it!  Also, be sure you keep track of your on-going total - I won't be doing the math for you!

For example
Let's say I want to lose five pounds this month.  So, I sign up for the 17,500 Challenger group.  On day 1 my calorie output is 2000 and my intake is 1500.  That makes my day 1 deficit 500, so I post: 500/17,500.  On day 2, my calorie output is 1800 and my intake is 1500, making my deficit 300.  So, I add my day 2 deficit onto my day 1 deficit, and post:  800/17,500.  On day 3, I didn't do so well and took in 2000 calories and burned 1800 calories.  So, on day 3 I subtract the calories I took in over maintainence and I post my total montly deficit as 600/17,500.   For more examples check out the March Calorie Deficit Challege found here.

Hey Ali girl, are you thinking of giving up this post as well as BLC?  If so, I would be willing to take it on.  You have given so much time to helping others.  I think there is a lot of people out there who owe you a big shout out!  I for one will start with a huge THANK YOU for ALL you do here at CC.  You ROCK
