Default Wednesday Weekly Weigh-In thread

Okay, it doesn't have to be Wednesday, but was going for the alliterative effect. (Although I prefer Wednesdays, because that gives a coupla days to wear off the effects of the weekend, both good and bad.)

Let's use this thread to report our progress. If you don't want to use your actual weight, just give a starting weight of 500 (or whatever) and report answers relative to that.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's a summary of everyone's report - I'll keep it here, so it's easy to find.

A coupla comments:
1) I'm ignoring the decimals, and rounding up on the .5's
2) [Insipred by Werewolf] If you want to break your goal down into smaller pieces (w/in reason), I'll target the immediate goal first. Once you reach that goal, we can put that in the "Losers Hall of Fame" and put your next goal on the list. (Just make sure to remind me that you're moving on to the next goal.)

I think it would be better to just say Wednesday is weigh-in day but have everyone do it in their own threads.

Otherwise the conversations each week are going to get hard to follow.

I disagree. I'm weighing in here and not even going to start my own thread.

Okay - I just figured that it would be kinda cool to have a summary report so we're all together at some point, but that make sense, too. That way if people just wanted the accountability, but didn't want to have their own thread just to report weight, they were covered.

If needed, feel free to delete this thread since I misinterpreted what the sub-forum was for.

And I'm not weighing in on Wednesday. I'm doing it today. But I'm not using 500. That's too high to be meaningful. 499 wouldn't sound like much but it could be 3 pounds. I'm using 100. That way it will be easy to calculate percents. Today I'm at 100.

Doesn't matter to me. Loner's suggestion is good too.

I'm really not anxious to reveal my actual weight. I'll report the weekly difference, though. (for example, this week, I lost 9.4 lbs.)

That was the reason I threw out the "Start at 500" idea at the beginning. I didn't expect everyone to reveal the actual weight. (I was thinking that 500 was far enough out of line that no one would think that I was picking their actual weight.)
