Default ~*Haunting for Halloween 2015 Challenge*~

Welcome to Haunting for Halloween Challenge 2015

Welcome to the Haunting for Halloween challenge 2015, it's our 3rd year! 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. Last year I ran this challenge across multiple boards as this is the most popular challenge of the year, so I want to do it again 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 included all the forums that participated last year, 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 up until the final week of the challenge!!
  • ~~>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 lb. club etc) and scroll to the right and enter your Goal Weight.
  • LEAVE THE 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 between Monday and Sunday.
  • Be sure to have your weekly weigh in on the spreadsheet by Sunday, because I make the charts on Monday. In the spreadsheet when the column is labelled "WK 1 8/31", that means the week BEGINS on the 31st August NOT the particular day you have to weigh in!
  • 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.
Optional before and after measurements challenge! Read below:
  • The wonderful nonameslob gave me the idea to include a spreadsheet to chart our measurements from the beginning to the end of the challenge. I've included a tab on the spreadsheet to enter your measurements. Measure yourself at the beginning of the challenge and at the end to see how much you shrink! -->Access this optional sheet here!<--

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!
  • 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.
  • My weight changed during the week but I already entered my weight, can I change it? ~ OF COURSE! I always like to use my lightest weight of the week and that's perfectly acceptable to change a weight as the week progresses.

Enter your starting weights now and the challenge begins August 31st!!

Sounds fantastic.

Unfortunately I am on the Whole 30 so I cant get weighed every week but best of luck to everyone as my final weight loss target is set for Halloween and it will be interesting to see how much weight everyone has lost on it.

I joined the challenge, even though I'm a bit late, I hope that's okay!

My birthday is just before Halloween, so if I commit to restarting my weightloss now then I'm giving myself a nice gift!

First-timer to the challenge, and I just joined so I'm missing two weeks. Hope that's okay. I'm honestly afraid to put in a lower goal weight because I have a vacation coming up, though I also hope this challenge motivates me to work hard and do good. I'll update my goal at the beginning of October. Thanks for doing this. =)

No worries! You can add your weights if you know them. Otherwise just weigh in for this week. Don't worry about the goal weight so much, you can change it along the way. Where are you going on vacation, or are you just taking time off work?

Visiting my sister for a week, with the family. Not really "vacation" so much as getting away for the week, but that means a disrupted schedule. Thankfully she's on a weight loss journey, too, so I'll have some motivation...but we both tend to relax when we're together. =)

Plan?! I should work on that. So far I'm just working on cutting binges, sugar, processed food, takeout, and adding back exercise.

I've been successful before with more strict regimes of calorie counting and lots of running, but right now I'm so far from that point. Feel like I'm learning to walk again. I fell of the wagon.
