At the beginning of 2012 a challenge was given this team to Lose 2012 Pounds in 2012. So far the team has gone from 2012 of those pounds to lose to only 1423 to lose. That means that those who have doing this challenge have already lost 589 pounds. I think that this team has already lost more than 589 pounds sooooooo If you have not been doing this challenge before please participate in the challenge. We'll work on THIS thread from now and through December.
Here it goes: This team needs to lose 1423 pounds before the end of the year!!!!! If you have already been using the other thread... please use this one now. Start from the last time you posted on the old thread and go from there to count the number of pounds that you lose...
For instance: 1423 is the goal. If you lost another two pounds since posting.... then SUBSTRACT 1423 - 2 = 1422 pounds left for this team to lose.
NOW... supposing that you have NEVER posted in the other thread before but you have lost weight during 2012. You can subtract the total amount of weight that you have lost from the team goal and go from there. This means weight you have lost either via Sparkpeople or before joining SparkPeople!!
For instance. You have lost 25 pounds during 2012 but you have never posted in the Team Challenge thread to lose 2012 pounds in 2012....then you begin posting NOW as such 1422 from last posted amount MINUS the 25 pounds that YOU have lost this year means that the team still needs to lose 1422 - 25 pounds + 1398 pounds to go.
Starting weight for this challenge.... to end at the end of 2012 is:
