Pigs On Parade; Week 3

Ah, finally all are results are in and we can POST THEM!

We have a great show lined up for you today: Drama with scales, drama with the things scales say, a bit of steady progress, and some overachievers. We have a group total of 33 pounds lost in just 3 weeks (no thanks to me - sucks to go backwards).

Congrats to Utenzi, this week's biggest loser, and to Renn, the overall loss leader!

Also to No Celery Please for beating her goal already, and for teaching me to be a better person for not calling her mean names just because I'm having trouble keeping up...

And, the corrected data that pulls from the correct cells this time (good thing I'm not an accountant, huh?):
Shrinklet Change this week Total Change % of Goal
Chickie -1 -3 7.5%
db grin 3 -3 10.0%
Deborah -1 -5 12.5%
eb -1 -5 12.5%
Ginamonster 1 1 -5.0%
LJS 0 0 0.0%
NCP -2 -5 125.0%
Renn -1 -6 31.6%
Tiff 0 -2 8.0%
Utenzi -4 -5 38.5%

Way to skew the normal distribution, NCP!

There must be something wrong with the table. No Celery has her total change at zero. If that's true, how can she be over her goal by 25%? Is there supposed to be a different number in that column? Just curious!

No Celery Please said...

Hee Hee... yes, you see, if you set your goal at "0", it's EASY to reach it!

OK, so my total change should be -5. My goal was -4.

Don't worry, next week I am going to be spending the entire week training in NYC, which means that I am going to be dangerously close to Deli food, street hot dogs, great pizza, knish, and goodness knows what-else.

I suspect I will not be able to hold at -5.

33 pounds? We've lost a toddler already!

I love seeing those 5s and 6s.
Keep up the good work!

Does anyone know why the first 10 seems so easy and then ya gotta fight for every pound thereafter. I'm new to this dieting thing.

utenzi said...

Water is very easy to lose, Saga. After that it gets painful.

Ginamonster said...

grumble... The lack of cookies is seriously affecting my thinking abilities. And I GAINED! but based on the amount of time I spent in the bathroom that day, I think it was all water...

No Celery Please said...

Sagacious Hillbilly... that first ten is often your liver dumping glucose in response to the reduced food intake. (I learned that on a documentary about what happens to your body when you diet! Yay TV!)

Oh, yeah, and totally the water too.
