I have reached goal, but it might be a tie... We'll report it for your enjoyment and conduct a proper medal ceremony.

C'mon everybody! Hop on the brand new 2 % challenge train!

Here are the rules : The fastest to shed 2 % of their body weight wins. To calculate 2 % just multiply .02 with your body weight and round off to the nearest .2 lbs.

Matisse

144.6 * .02 = 2.892 lbs which is closer to 2.8 lbs than 3 lbs. So 2.8 lbs goal!

Also-I'm sure I could- but it's just not the same lol I grew up with my lobsterman friends bringing bags of fresh lobsters to my house... Or walking to the shore in front if my house and digging my own clams. Ok, I guess I'm just a spoiled girl lol

Thank you everyone! Only Believe deserves the gold metal because she lost more than her goal. I won silver.

Only believe and Matisse- you are Rock stars, I'm in the front row hooting for you both!!!

Matisse- you are the queen of whooshes it seems:) I'm slightly jealous! Lol.

I don't know what's up with my body. I am stable for two weeks, then I lose a big amount in consecutive days. I remember losing more consistently when I was in my twenties and thirties.

I also never thought I'd use the word whoosh so much in my life until I started tracking my weight lol

Crazy, isn't it? MyFitnessPal weight report is full of pointy peaks and valleys.

Also-I'm sure I could- but it's just not the same lol I grew up with my lobsterman friends bringing bags of fresh lobsters to my house... Or walking to the shore in front if my house and digging my own clams. Ok, I guess I'm just a spoiled girl lol

That sounds like heaven. Were you on the East or West Coast?

My goal is to win one of these dang challenges! This really is a challenge!!!
I've got 6.6 to lose..

And you WILL. You just WILL.

Stop saying things like that unless we can eventually (in a few years would be OK) have a meal together. That would be so cool!

We could eat a few favourites without going overboard. We have become so well behaved with our diets and exercise and we'll have reached goal and maintained because WE can do it.

I had a lobster roll tonight from a gourmet street vendor fest. It made me think of you.

Have fun in Europe, Tuscany! I grew up over there, I miss it. Where are you going?

I will first go to England, since my daughter lives there. She's doing her PhD at Oxford University and, next year, she and her fiance are getting married and the wedding will be in Siena, Italy. So, while I'm over there, we will be going to Siena for five days in order to deal with wedding planning. That will include meeting with the caterer for a tasting. Safe to say I won't be on plan that day!! I suspect we'll be doing lots of walking, and I hope that makes up for a few indulgences on the food end of things. If I can simply maintain while away, I'll be happy...and if I happen to put on a pound or two, I will hit the decks running when I get back and take them right back off again!

I was born in England and lived there until I was almost a teenager, whereupon we came to Canada. Where did you grow up?

From 243 to 246.8?!? What's up with that? How often do you weigh?

- After number 2.

Or is it quantum leaps? <Cue Twilight Zone music.> (Sorry, I am a physicist.)

So close? I disagree, you have already WON!

Your scale does not have .1 lbs precision. This is why I suggested to round it off to the nearest .2 lbs. In your case, you goal weight loss was 4.6 lbs, so GOAL REACHED!!!

Congrats, Cheeri! Now go start a new thread! :carrot::carrot::carrot:
