Smile January Challenge Thread

Come join the fun!

EVERYONE on the 50+ Board is welcome to join!

A new month - a new year - a new chance to be successful!!!

For the month of January, post your daily calories (or WW points) and minutes of exercise. If you want, post any other goal(s) for the month.

Once a week - you pick the day, post your lbs up or down for the week. Just edit your original post daily - 1 post/participant. OR if you prefer, post your weight everyday.

Begin your post on January 1 (or 2)!

A prize (the travelling cookbook - winners are responsible to send the book to the next winner) will be awarded to the participant(s) doing the best job for the month. NOTE: in the event of a tie, the person with the highest % of weight loss for the month wins.

Let's help each other make January 2008 a Spectacular Weight Loss month!

Lynn

To Countingdown & Jaxbarb -

OK ladies, just the 3 of us left "standing." If we all continue to post for the next week, we'll determine this month's winner by whoever meets her goals. If all 3 of us have met our goals, we'll determine the winner by whoever lost the most weight this month.

Congratulations on being a finalist!

Good luck!

Lynn

To JaxBarb and CountingDown,
OK Ladies - you both posted everyday and met your goals. To decide on our winner, we need to know your % of weight loss.

Just in case you need some info for calculating % of weight loss (I looked it up on the internet) -

How to calculate your % of weight loss -

The formula for calculating percent is: part/whole x 100. For example, if you weigh 200 lbs at the beginning of the month & you lose 70 lbs and are now 130 lbs, you would divide the loss by the beginning weight and then multiply by 100 70/200*100= 35%

For me, I began the month at 154.6 & ended at 152.8. I lost 1.8 lbs.
So, I divide 1.8 by 154.6 and get .0116... I multiply that number by 100 and end up with 1.16%

However, I'm out of the running because I didn't meet my January goals.

Lynn
