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.

Amazing job, Sum!

Awesome, Tuscany is back!

2 % of 144 lbs = 2.88 lbs rounded off to 2.8 lbs

SW ; 144 lbs
GW : 141.2 lbs

Fair and free, 2 % is exactly 4.5 lbs, but your scale will probably will not say that. So I think your goal should be 4.4 lbs. What do you day, gang?

IMO, that is so rare, that we should round it down instead of up.

Game is on!

Matisse, you're right! I was rounding up and forgot to change that bit. I don't know about scales in general, but mine does NOT do odd decimal points. But since you mentioned what you did then it's probably more common than I'd assume.

My illness, interstitial cystitis is flaring up, so this means water retention. Furthermore, I am taking iron supplements which has unfortunate symptoms. Also, I had wine AND beer last night.

I am doing better today, NewLeaf , although I am soooo tired.

fairandfree, NewLeaf : My evil cat was cool last night until 5:30 AM. Then he reminded me insistently that I am his personal valet.

I do not want to reward him; my sleep is so precious.

Looking forward hearing stories about his lost long triplets. ;-)

tuscany, shedding a 1/4 pound is HUGE!!

Matisse, congrats on the new low! And thanks for noticing I'm a pound away!! Trying not to let it go to my head... That's when I derail.

driven, you will get there. Not gaining is a WIN in my book.

DC (dear cat) woke me up by purring in my ear, but for some reason, gently shooing him off the bed did the trick. But when the alarm sounded, he was all over me incessantly. At least I don't oversleep that way...

It could happen. There was a 2 % challenge in late August that went on very long (several weeks). Many of us were above our starting weight for most of the challenge, then two of us whooshed to victory.

Enjoying the evil cat stories, FairAndFree and NewLeaf!

FairAndFree, a few posters at 3FC have jokingly said that I should put a "food porn" label on my menu descriptions. :lol:

What I do is very healthy too. For a long time, I suffered from bulimia because I was always on a diet and now I do not feel deprived which is awesome!

I have been losing 12 pounds in ten weeks and that's a decent pace.

Happy anniversary, Heidi!
