Everyone is welcome to join in this challenge!

Here's how it works:
Post your starting weight (SW) and your goal weight (GW).
Come back any time to update with your current weight (CW).
The first person to reach their 5lb goal is the winner!
That person then starts a new thread for the next 5 pound challenge.

Have fun and good luck!!!

Gosh starting a new job and trying to find your place with everyone is really hard! I hope it is a wonderful place to work and just think that this 1st week was a celebration for you! and I know what stress does.. ARGH... I hope that they don't do all those kind of lunches every week?
