    If meeting the Madden Brothers in November can't get me motivated to loose weight, Then I don't know what will. I've loved them since I was introduced to Good Charlottes music when I was 15 (11 years ago) and I finally get to meet them :D lol. 2 months to lose some weight. Mid to low 90's is my goal. I'm currenlty 102 so not sure how much I can loose by then but gunna try my hardest.
