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.

.02 x 149.5 = 2.99, which I will round to 3.0

SW 149.5
CW 149.5
GW 146.5

Seems like an unthinkable number but I refuse to hyperventilate.

Bravo, NewLeaf! I put good money on you.

145.4 lbs ----2 % = 3 lbs

CW and SW 145.4 lbs
GW 142.4 lbs

Tomorrow should be horrible weight-wise. I had a few stressful days and was engaged in angry debate with bigoted people. Because I had guests over last night, there were blue corn chips in my pantry. I wish my guests would have eaten more because I can't resist those.

Exercise or more. I guess I need to eat more.

I have a "moral" dilemma. I "won" this challenge, but how I won it.... I had upset stomach and nothing stayed in and I barely ate anything all day.

I think I will see if my new low sticks (sometimes it does after a flu)...... and see what tomorrow brings.

Oh dear, Sum. I hope you're feeling better soon! :hug:

I also hope the weight loss sticks so you can claim you won with a clear conscience. :)
