Welcome to Haunting for Halloween Challenge 2014

Welcome to the Haunting for Halloween challenge 2014! For those of you who know me, welcome back, I’m glad you’re here! For those of you who are thinking, “who is this crazy person?” allow me to introduce myself! I’ve been doing these spread sheet challenges for a good few years now and I’ve seen so many amazing people lose weight. I’ve been holding these challenges in the forum I dwell in the most – the 20-something forum. However I felt like I wanted to spread out to other forums this year and create a super duper challenge that includes people of all sizes and ages. We’ll all be using the same spread sheet, so it’ll be fun to spur each other on! I’ve tried to include the forums that I see have had a lot of activity recently, but if you think that this challenge should be posted in your favourite sub-forum then please PM me and let me know!

Here’s the aim of the game…lose the most percentage of body weight by Halloween and roll up to your fancy dress party (or your couch with the lights off because you hate kids) and feel sexier than ever. I don’t want to hear any “oh…I won’t be sexy by Halloween” because I’m here to tell you YOU ARE A FREAKIN’ SEXY CANDY PANDA! SHAKE IT LIKE YOU’RE AT A NAKED DANCE PARTY! This is just a way to encourage a healthy bit of competition into your routine.


Let's Keep This Simple! Please Read These Rules!

• You can join this challenge at any time!! Really really!
~~>Click Here to view the Spreadsheet!<~~
• Enter your Username, Starting Weight (at the weight you are at NOW), which forum you're joining from (e.g. 20-somethings, 100 lbs club etc) and scroll to the right and enter your Goal Weight.
LEAVE THE LBS TO LOSE, LBS LOST AND % OF WEIGHT LOSS COLUMNS ALONE! The rest is all filled out automatically by the spread sheet monkeys. Let them do their job, they get plenty of bananas
• Week by week enter your weight on any day you want Monday - Sunday.
• Check back in to the thread and I'll publish a weekly chart to show who's dominating over us all.
• If you want to take a break from weighing in then right click the cell for that week and select "Insert Note" (definitely not a "comment" because these won't move with your username if new members join the spreadsheet!) and add your reason for not weighing in.
• If you don't weigh in for more than 2 weeks without a noted reason you will be moved to Standby. Come to the thread and opt back in if you want to re-enter the challenge.

That's it!* A huge part of this challenge is the community support, so please use this thread to talk to each other and update us on your progress. It’s less about just saying “today I weigh ___” and more about actually communicating with fellow sexy candy panda’s and talking about your life and all its ups and downs. Think of this thread more like a chat thread rather than just a place to post weights.

*FAQ
Can I change my Goal Weight once the challenge has begun? ~ Yes! Just change the number in the Goal Weight column and the lbs to lose and lbs to go columns will sort themselves out. So no need to fiddle around with anything else BUT the Goal Weight value.
There's a - mark in my cell for a week, but I know what I weighed! Can I change it? ~ Yes! The more information you can put in the better.

This challenge will start officially on August 25th, but enter your starting weights now! You can edit your starting weight before the official start date if you so desire.

I added myself... LOL But tbh, I'm not sure I did right because I don't see any record of it? Can you tell me if I did right?

BamaGalRN I moved you up and made sure the formulas followed, but fast question... what's your Halloween goal weight? 220?
I think you posted your Halloween goal in the Halloween weight spot (which will be updated on 10/31 with actaul weight) and your ULTIMATE goal on the goal spot.

I fixed your information BamaGal. Thanks for the assistance kurisitaru! Awesome avatar, I desperately want to pull off a Tifa cosplay someday!

I also forgot to specify in the rules to enter which forum you are joining from, it's all fixed in the first posts now so hopefully we'll get some more people joining from other forums! Thanks for the people who've signed up so far, it's great to see so many people already.

thanks for doing the halloween challenge again this year Rie! I'm in, but I'm add my name into the spreadsheet in a week. I don't have a scale right now, although I think I am between 137-140. So excited to be back on this board

Woohooo, thanks Riestrella! I hope that this challenge will finally get me back on track. I've been off plan way too long. I'll be entering my current weight when the challenge starts. I want to lose some of the re-gain first...

Hoopty, I'm on the same boat. Trying to get rid of a few of my regain pounds and hopefully when the challenge starts I'll be at 135ish. I think I'm around 137-140, but no way to know as I don't have a scale and I'm on vacation

Yay!

You know, I haven't yet finished a challenge (either I forget, or get busy, or get off track, or one of a million things), but they're still really great!

And I always have a good time reading your intro to them! So fun!

I do have a goal for around Halloween. And it'll be fun to chat with people along the way!

I'm in! I'll enter my starting weight once the challenge starts, I think.

kisskiss - You understand the struggle...I swear, regain-pounds are the worst to me. They're like a punch to your face. All the hard work for nothing, just so you can work hard again. I can't let that happen again. How much longer will you be in vacation-mode?

LiannaKole - Love the intros, too, they're so motivating

I regained a lot actually...I was at 137 lbs on July 11th, then my brother had a huge graduation party, then I got lazy, then family from Canada visited and now I've been stressed out due to us having to move, finding a new tenant for our place, finding a new apartment in a city that's about 5 hours away by car, our money situation, AND I'll be going to university in October (which is why we're moving). I'm a huge stress-eater and now, 10 lbs later, it's catching up to me. I weighed-in at 147 lbs the other day after eating 2 bags of chips and a whole bunch of chocolate. In fact, that's all I've been eating, which is quite terrible.
And you know what's really stupid - I'm an all-in-or-nothing kind of person. Today, I had to finish eating my cake and ice cream (after going to the gym) because I didn't wanna wake up tomorrow trying to have my first on-plan day in what seems like forever, with junk food in the house.

I am aiming for 141 lbs by the time this challenge starts. My goal #1 is to stay on plan tomorrow, drink tons of green + herbal tea and workout.

Here's to a successful Sunday!
