Information to put in the challenge: Copy and paste the bold printed information, please.
STATE OR COUNTRY: like to do this so I don't miss anyone for weekly stats. Several times, people have missed out because of the time zone difference. So, if you want to see your name in LIGHTS, when you have accomplished so much, please provide it.
LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF:
If you'd like to give a little brief information about yourself that would be great! Possibly meet new people to be friends with. (ie., attempts on losing weight, special dietary constraints, motivation for this journey things like that).
DAY YOU'D LIKE TO WEIGH IN
STATE OR COUNTRY: Ohio
LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF: Have been on the weight loss journey since 2007 when I started this site with some success.
CURRENT WEIGHT: 287
GOAL WEIGHT: 282
AGE: 49 (APRIL 1st is my birthday and this is my new age)
DAY YOU'D LIKE TO WEIGH IN Saturday
GW for Challenge: 282 10% OF YOUR CURRENT WEIGHT IS SUGGESTED) I AM DOING LESS BECAUSE I LOSE AT A SLOWER RATE
IF you join in these months this is the suggested weight loss percentage
May Challengers 7% of SW unless it is midway then 5.5
June Challengers 5% or 4% of SW. This is to keep you motivated to stay with the challenge.
Experts say 10% of your body weight is reasonable to lose in a 3 month period. You must take into consideration if you had already lost a reasonable amount of weight that your may hit a plateau during this challenge. Don't get discouraged.
Day you like to weigh: Saturday

One thing I decided to do to the challenge is to adjust your formula to your actual highest weight. Afterall, you have lost more than your initial weigh in. I think this is fair and encouraging. I will ask you before I adjust the formula, so its up to you.
So hurry up and get started
Take care and God bless.
Ive been in an accident so I am trying to enter the information and welcome everyone the best I can. I am sorry. BUT THE CHALLENGE WILL CONTINUE!!!!!!!!
Grace has been nice enough to follow thru with the welcoming. Thanks Grace. (Gramite)
Its official the 2nd quarter 2012 challenge is now over! There are 8 people who I removed for none logging of weight these past 2 weeks but have logged into the site. I don't feel its fair to askew the numbers by keeping them in the challenge. So to be fair to the faithful and give due recognition I made the decision to NOT include them. Here are the stats: 9 remaining members with a total loss of 56.9 pounds out of 113.6 which is a 50% of the goal being met loss for the group as a whole.
Cris is our biggest loser with 17.4 pounds lost,
Denee is our next biggest loser at 13 pounds lost,
Courtney is in 3rd place with a loss of 9 pounds.
Here are the final stats of everyone else
- Katie 5.3
- Renee 5
- Grace 4.3
- Laury 3
- Roger and I had a gain
Glad that everyone stayed with the challenge and hope to see you in the next. The link is in the comment of the beginning post if you can't find it. Thanks for participating and Good luck in your journey, should you not join the next challenge.
Take care and God Bless.

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
