Hi Everyone,

I'm scrambling to close out the ending challenge today and will set up a new one.

(I'm flying to Argentina tonight for a week of kayaking plus some horse trekking.)

I will set up the new challenge to accept sign ups from today until Monday, Dec. 17.

The first week of weight logging will be Tuesday Dec 18 - Monday Dec 24.

That challenge will go 8 weeks and end on Feb 11. Since Feb 12 is Mardi Gras, we will call it the Mardi Gras challenge. :-)

If you guys want to run an interim challenge between now and December 18, go for it!

FINAL RESULTS ARE IN!

Percentages are here:

A4GkhKgdGt2cTRxM28xaG5UdzBxQ2dDRmIxZEE

"0%" is the center of your range that you picked, and for the purposes of this challenge, maintenance range is 3% above and below that.

Congratulations to these folks for staying within the +/- 3% range so far (and logging it).

These people either missed the deadline or didn't log a weight on the form this week and there's no backup post here, and so dropped from the challenge.

Last one: 143

Hmmmm...I guess 140 was just a pipe dream. If we have a follow-on challenge, I need to reconsider my center point, as I seem to keep hanging in there at 143. I was thinking yesterday that when I first went into the Air Force, 143 was the max allowed weight for my height, age, and gender, and I struggled to stay below that. As time went on, the AF revised the max weights up, and by the time I retired, I had trouble staying below the new max weight of 161. And then things just got worse until I ended up at 224 (220 when I started SP).

Up after a week away but still within range. Sodium and pasta and eating out for a whole week! So I am thankful to have this challenge to keep me focused on healthful living.

Started at 138, aiming for 125. Got there, and 120 seemed possible. Got THERE, and 118 seemed possible. Got THERE, and 115 seemed possible. And that's where I want to stay. Maintain, maintain, maintain.

I'd been away from home and hadn't weighed for quite a few days. Was 133.0 this morn which is in range but toward the top. Yesterday was a high sodium day and I expect to be back to 129 in a day or so. We'll see.

ONEKIDSMOM is definitely in range; guess she forgot to post. She looks healthy and very slim! She visited me here in Florida (for our half marathon) and was away from home, too.

160.6 average for the week, with a couple individual day weights right at the bottom of my desired range. Starting to eat a bit more to compensate for greater activity; and I'm really happy with the 10K I ran on Thanksgiving Day this week.

131.8---top of my range. Got caught up in the impossible situation of not having any reasonable choices. Back home now....motivated....looking forward to healthy meals. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving, though. Hope all of you had a great one, too!!

I posted for the week just now. 123. However, it seems to be for week 5 still. I'm not sure how that will work out in the end, because I think it should be week 6.

At any rate, if this is week 6 - and the end of the challenge - I lose (but in a good way!) because I am under target.

146.5. I actually managed to maintain last week's weight, even though I had 3 days in Las Vegas to contend with. Still well below my original maintenance weight (150) but I'm pretty happy. Now onto Thanksgiving...

Working on maintaining at 140!

I already can't wait for the next challenge, whatever it may be! Even though I'm in weight loss mode while doing this one, and thus ironically doomed to fail on the challenge, I love the weekly accountability!

"Awareness is all."

"Letting go is much harder than fighting."

“Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.” —Gilda Radner

the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference." --Reinhold Niebuhr

"0%" is the center of your range that you picked, and for the purposes of this challenge, maintenance range is 3% above and below that.

Congratulations to these folks for staying within the +/- 3% range so far (and logging it).

This challenge will run for 6 weeks total (through November 26). You now have until midnight, Eastern time Monday to record your weight for this week.
docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formk
ey=dGt2cTRxM28xaG5UdzBxQ2dDRmIxZEE6MA#
gid=2

The link is the same every week, so you can just bookmark it if you want.

If you need reminders to log your weight, you can set them up for yourself on the Spark People planner. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/planner.asp

Please remember to click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the form. A confirmation window will pop up to tell you the weight has been logged.

Follow the link in the confirmation window back to this thread and post your weight on this thread here as a backup.

To make sure your weight has been recorded for the week you can go here:
docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ah4Kr
A4GkhKgdGt2cTRxM28xaG5UdzBxQ2dDRmIxZEE
#gid=0

It takes a couple of minutes sometimes for the update to show up, so if you don't see yourself on there immediately, check back in a few minutes. If in doubt you can always log more than once. I'll just keep the later measurement.

Even if you went over or under your range, continue to check in because 1) there will be consolation prizes for staying in the challenge and 2) we will still calculate your average deviation and graph your progress.

These people either missed the deadline or didn't log a weight on the form this week and there's no backup post here, and so dropped from the challenge.

Sometimes it's not easy to get motivated to workout or go to the gym. But when I am finished, I have NEVER once said, "Gee, I wish I didn't do that."

119.6, down from where I was at the beginning, but still not at bottom of range, where I want to be. Not complaining, though!

160.6 average for the week. I'm now at the bottom of my desired range; need to eat a bit above the bottom of the calorie range for a while, and consider whether I should nudge the calorie range up.

136.6 down a pound. I hope it doesn't knock me out of the challenge. However, I'm not complaining!!!
