Hi all,

It's new challenge time!!!

If you want in, here's the deal:

* First weigh-in to set base weight is 12/16/11
* Final weigh-in will be 3/9/12
*Weigh in each Friday and post to thread (or really any time between Friday and Monday - I usually post the prior week's results on Monday evenings)
* Cheer each other on and be healthy!

If you want in, on 12/16 or thereabouts ... post your starting weight and goal weight ... I'll put together the table and track as we go.

Let me know if you have any questions!

I'm so in. I got on scale today. What? 2 pound gain this week? How can that be? I've already put in 16 miles? That makes a +3 from the beginning of the LAST challenge! Tis the season!

139.

I'll be starting at 196 and will do a goal weight of 186.

Mr. Miller, would you care to do a side bet on who can lose the most or similar by Houston? Loser buys the winner's lunch at the 365Runners lunch on Saturday the 14th (probably 1 p.m.) at a restaurant near the George R Brown Convention Center (probably Mia Bella, but I have to do some research as I haven't eaten there since last year's lunch).

I'm certainly not going to do anything extreme at the risk of screwing up a great training cycle for the marathon. But it will allow some focus.

Hang on, I seriously doubt some who posted should even be considering weight loss. You may need to be more focused on eating enough to fuel your ever increasing training. This can become dangerous. Just a thought.santa

Crazy last month with poundage added on. Time for me to shake off this baggage.

Goal: 136

This morning after a high sodium dinner (note how I refuse to take ownership of the weight): 144 (yikes) It's all that P90X muscle, I'm sure of it! Can't recall if you put other stuff on the chart...5'6" if you need that.


I purchased a new scale that is in .2 increment. I was 1.4 lbs HEAVIER on this one than the last one. UGH!!!

Didn't get a weigh-in this weekend since I've had the flu and would rather actually have an accurate number than post-illness. Guess I'll start next week.

Was at 210 lbs on the 16th -- let's say I hope to lose 15 lbs so goal weight is 195 lbs.

Ounce, I'm up for a side bet to stimulate our motivation but it depends on how we structure it. I don't think I can keep up with a pound for pound challenge.

Percentage lost is fine with me. I'll be happy to be at 196 on that Saturday as a result of the 3-4 pounds I usually gain for carbo-loading.

There's usually a scale right after packet pickup at the Expo, so the medical staff can get a before-race weight.

ok, You're on. So you want to do the final weigh-in at the expo? I sure hope my scale is accurate. In that case I'll have to go to the expo prior to our luncheon.
