Yeah.. Beachluvr79 was the first to the finish line. But it was close. There are alot of you that were within 1 lb. WAY TO GO ALL OF US!

Time to start anew and get a new winner. Lets see if we can get a winner by 4/1 :) I'm in and set for the challenge. Tying my gymmy shoes on and heading out the door :)

and the starter's gun goes off... Bang!

03-25-2013, 10:03 AM
angelicus. Welcome to you!

This is easy. You just need to show your starting weight (SW) then put your current weight (CW) for the day and then your goal weight (5 lbs less) Keep track every day if you can and the first one to lose 5 lbs wins!!!!and gets to start the next thread :) Maybe you will win!!

OK, full disclosure here. Yes, my weight was 159.7 when I started on 4/1. What I didn't realize was that some of this must have been water weight. I flew for 30 hours on 3/30, after hiking 80 miles the week before on vacation. I was disappointed to see 161 on my scale on 3/31 (I was 157 when I left for my trip on 3/17), so I figured that when it dropped to 159.7 the next day, that's all the bounce I was going to get...

Could I still be bouncing back from the trip and flight??? Either way, I'll take it! But I don't deserve to win this, if it comes to that...

Congrats, Wannaskipandlaugh! You rock! I really don't mind not winning. Heck, I'm down almost 4 pounds--that is a win!
