The May Fiver Challenge

Sorry about posting this late. But I thought what better day to post about a Fiver Challenge than on May fifth. 
On the night of the 30th, I had an idea to attempt to lose five pounds in May. Thirty one days. How hard could it be to consciously lose this weight? Then, I decided to open the challenge up to the entire group and see how much could we lose as a group. 50, 75, maybe even 100 pounds. I do t know. 
This is not a competition. It's not a race. All we want at the end o the month is the amount lost. It's a way to help build our fitness community and work together to lose weight. That's it. All you have to do is work on your routine to hit the five pound goal.
Five pounds in one month should, in most cases, be doable. Many weight loss experts,I have read, state normal, reasonable weight loss is one to two pounds a week. Our challenge is one pound a week. 
How do I plan on getting to the goal? I am cutting soda out of my diet and working on portion control. Those are my big issues. For others, it may be the same or hitting the gym one or two more times a week. I am also working on reaching 130 miles this month. Those miles can come from running, walking to work, swimming, and biking. I am not suggesting you do this. I currently run 80-90 miles a month. 
So, who's with me to do this? 
How can you join us?
