THIS CHALLENGE IS FROM January 1st- March 31st, 2011.....

I ASK THIS TIME AROUND THAT NO ONE EDITS THEIR ORIGINAL POSTS IF THEY WANT THEIR TOTALS INCLUDED IN THE SPREADSHEET.  THIS IS TIME CONSUMING TRYING TO UPDATE MY SPREADSHEET SO I CAN MAKE THIS A REAL CHALLENGE AND POST WEIGHT UPDATES FOR THE MONTH., ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU POST ON THE DAY YOU WANT TO POST.    thanks

So if you want some support and some motivational tips, join us!

I will post the tips in the THIS journal post and MARK EDIT: SEE COMMENT and I will reference the comment number so you can just scroll to it, if you'd like. 

 For purposes of starting the spreadsheet, I will start posting weights to that on Monday's.  THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE YOUR WEIGH-IN DAY.  My goal is to post total lost two days after the month has ended.  This will enable those in different time zones to not be left out.  At the end of the challenge I will post a range and people's name.

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.

So hurry up and get your name added!  Whats stopping you?

One challenger was wondering what is reasonable for weight loss.  The answer is 10% of your current body weight.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
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.
