Week 3

Okay, this contest is off to a rocketing start. We have 6 contestants (joiners welcome) who have finally weighed in and committed with their goals.

We're going for a collective ditching of 175 pounds - the mass of an entire adult male will disappear by hot dog season. I hope the feds don't get suspicious. Anyway, that's a 16% reduction among the six of us - yay!

I know my changing habits have made a difference. I'm getting up earlier, spending about 30 minutes with the exerball (DB) doing pushups, crunches, stretches, and leg things. About thrice a week I'm wogging or walking at least one mile. And, I'm eating less - not drastically so, but just stopping at 'firsts' and taking smaller portions. It's been surprisingly easy to get used to. We stopped by Wendy's over the weekend, and I ordered my beloved Single With Cheese, Medium Size Combo. I was uncomfortably full before I ate half my fries - that has never happened before. I'm getting excited.

Here are this week's starting stats:
Biff Spiffy: -13 (37% of goal)
Tiff: -2 (6% of goal)
Not Missy: New contestant
Marisol: New contestant
Mrs. Spiffy: New contestant
Girl: New contestant

Hey, how do I join? I don't actually have a scale at home, though. And the ones at work, well they are only big enough for cats (max 30 lbs.)
I would like to try for 35 lbs of loss.

And ladies, don't get discouraged if Biff wins. It is a well known fact that men lose weight faster +/- "easier" than women. Keep up the good work!

DMC - I officially love you for saying that it's easier for men to lose weight.

As to being added - not sure if Biff has done that yet....
