I'm planning to finally buy a scale this week, so count me in! ^^ It's gonna be awesome, no, WE are going to be awesome! 

Me too (altho I feel like a turtle...slow...). Back on the 9th. I would like to ask if by "change" you mean weight change or changing something in health quest? May I suggest that we log changes like that every week or so? Sort of mini-challenges to selves?

Sounds good to me I could use a fresh start.

I'm in and so glad to see new faces and old ones. :)

Wow! I'm happy to see so much interest in the challenge - s'gonna be great!

@chers - "change" refers to the difference in weight but it could be broadened to include self-improvement changes - feel free to personalize the challenge. Most of us have goals (besides weight loss) and it would be great for us to support each other while we try to achieve our goals and to celebrate our successes together.

Hi.  I'm definitely up for this challenge. I love CC challenges and it seems every time I join one, I lose (I WIN!), so I look forward to this. Please count me in. Thank you runyourlife, for starting this challenge!

This sounds great! I am in. See you all on the 9th.

I'm in!!!! I will see you on the 9th.

Wow-lots of new people, this should be fun.  I didn't end my year and the last challenge all that well.  But I can only blame myself for all that I did and didn't do over the Holidays!!  Can't wait to get back-good to see so many coming back too.

See ya on the 9th!!!!

I would love to join, I will check back on the 9th!
