Track your calories.  MyFitnessPal and Spark People are great free apps with lots of support.  You don’t want your weight loss to drop into the double digits or your weight?  If you’re around the double digit mark, changes are you don’t need to lose weight and losing it won’t be healthy for you unless you’re very petite.  Money or not, I wouldn’t advise it.  If you’re doing a weight loss contest, it should be by weight loss percentage from your weight to goal weight unless you and the other participants are at the same weight…otherwise those who are heavier have an advantage.

Why would you want to do this? Money isn’t worth dieting over when you are at a healthy weight already.

@Aquaria:  Do you have time to squeeze in some pilates? I find that helps and it doesn’t feel like exercise. It may actually help your back, too. 

I’m not sure this contest sounds like the best idea because you already sound fit and healthy. But obviously you know your body best so that is up to you.
