Summer weightloss challenge! Closed to new contestants but open support for all!

Details and Rules

Runs on the honor system, please be honest and supportive of all participating mamas. No matter what our size or goal we are all here for encouragement.

Here is the spreadsheet, (thanks Ali!) I am having link isses so lmk if it works.
https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?...EE&hl=en#gid=0

Note: if you have trouble opening the spreadsheet, try closing and re-opening it....usually works

-Everyone has to post a start weight during the initial week, the contest will be open to new participants until then end of the first week. Then the contest will close but anyone is welcome to come and chat, get encouragment or ask questions.

-Everyone must update weekly...Weeks run Monday to Sunday...so you will need to weigh-in on Monday, but may be posted on any other day that week if you prefer.
There has been a requested modification to the weigh-ins. Instead of everyone being required to weigh it on monday you are welcome to choose another day within the week. It would be best to try to weigh the same day each week.
For week one you must weigh in between June 21-27.
Week 2-June 28-July 4
Week 3-July 5- July 11
Week 4-July 12- July 18
Week 5-July 19- July 25
Week 6-July 26- Aug 1
Week 7 Aug 2- Aug 8
Week 8 Aug 9- Aug 15

All final weights must be in by August 16.

-Any diet and exercise routine is allowed. I will try to post tips and ideas if anyone want to check them out.

I am looking forward to getting to know everybody and cheering you on.

How to track your weight loss



-Winner will be chosen based on percentage of weight lost.
Example: My starting weight is 174.2 if I lose 14 lbs I will have lost 8% of my total body weight.

-Whoever has the highest percentage lost wins.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!

I'll do it too :-) DH comes home from Iraq in 30-40 days and I want to finish toning up and possibly lose 5 lbs so I'm all in. Unfortunately I have no idea how to do any type of spreadsheet so I hope someone else can make one up.

I'll join! And I'm the queen of excel spreadsheets. Just have to figure out how to link them here but I absolutely don't mind tracking it.

I want to join! I just bought the 30 Shred today actually! I can't weigh myself though...I have an eating disorder and canNOT have a scale in the house as per my therapy/sanity. Can I still participate? My dd3 was born 2 months ago and I just got the all-clear to excersize. I'm aiming to fit back into a size 6, I'm a 10 atm.

How does it work? I've been eating like poo lately.

hmmmm, I am sure we can figure something out. Are you not up for weighing your self at all? Or would you be able to schedual a weekly date with a friends scale or at the gym?
