So I was looking at how to calculate your % lost and it says to divide from start weight 10/24 to get percent. Thats just for the first week, right. The next week we divide by the starting weight of that week to get the total % lost that week. I know that for the overall stats, they are always divided by the initial weight from 10/24, but each week should be from its weekly starting weight, right? That is how they do it on BL. Just wondering...

southernbelle102~ I've been thinking about this a lot since I saw your post. I'm not sure the exact reason why I use the initial (10/24) weight to figure out percentages, but I think it comes back to weight watchers. They only use your first weight when figuring out percentage of weight lost. Also, it's more consistent, if you lose 3lbs. two weeks in a row, and used the new starting weight each week, you would get different percentages. A lot of members struggle with figuring out their percentages anyways, so I redo a lot of them. Thank you for asking! How are you doing?

katybelle, stucky1987, ashley nicole~

Hey everyone! Since the Challenge has not "officially" begun yet, this is the perfect time for introductions! Try to include your age, location, some interesting facts, and any struggles you have had with weight!

My name is Kim, I'm 26, and live in Vermont! I'm currently a paraprofessional & waitress, working anywhere from 60-80 hours per week. I have my certification to teach English, but surprise, surprise, there are NO jobs!!! I've struggled with weight since early in high school when I went from a year bout with anorexia to an obsession with food. It's hard to believe that at 16, 108lbs., I still thought I was fat... Thanks to destroying my metabolism with that eating disorder, I have ballooned over the years to 280lbs., which is where I began my weight loss journey once again in June. I have been a member on 3FC for a few years, at one point lost over 40lbs. with 3FC as my main supporter, but unfortunately gained it back when I got too confident and stopped checking the 3FC boards.
Interesting facts about me... I've been skydiving twice... I was a powerlifter in college (if you have any weight lifting questions, feel free to ask)... and I recently adopted a miniature poodle (rescue), who is AMAZING!!!
I could go on and on about different obstacles I have overcome or am currently faced with, but I'd rather share throughout the challenge!

Hi again! I've come back to introduce myself properly. My name is Kaitlyn, I'm 18, and I'm at school in a cute little town in Louisiana but I'm originally from Austin, Texas. I'm studying English/Literature, and at least for now I'm thinking of becoming a librarian. I can't remember when I wasn't overweight. I grew up as a chubby child, and whereas the doctor/my parents figured I'd outgrow it, guess what? Never did. I've lost 25 lbs since my freshman year of high school and my goal is to get down to a healthy BMI and then go from there pretty much. I'm new to 3FC and I love it here. It definitely holds me accountable and motivates me. Right now, I'm doing a training program to run a 5k, and I recently went vegetarian. I'm super excited for this!
