You're welcome. I had to think about those things too, when I set this up - at first the other way seemed more intuitive. Then I looked more deeply into reporting deviations and realized I had to do it the other way - and it's actually harder because I have to use a much more complicated formula in the spreadsheet. :-)

Week 9 results are in!

We’re done!

Go here to sign up for the next challenge:

(Deadline February 17)

Go here to log your weight until the next challenge begins:

These people either logged later than the deadline, or did not log and there is no backup here, so dropped from the official challenge:

@ NICKYCRANE

Thanks for your feedback! Here are the answers to why / how we do things the way we do in these challenges:

- 1. Could we have a trophy for finishing the challenge?

Everyone who has logged faithfully every week of these challenges gets a team goodie. Team leaders don’t have the ability to award official SparkPeople.com trophies, unfortunately. That's an official Spark People site thing. Team leaders are just members like everyone else; we don't have any connections to SparkPeople.com management...

- 2. It looks as if your deviations get added up whether they are over or under your target weight. If thatnis so, could they perhaps be averaged out instead?

The reason we do it this way is that the challenge is about seeing how consistent we can be. If one person fluctuates 1% up or down, compared to someone who is fluctuating 2% up or down around the target weight, your method would give the same result for both of them and would not reflect the greater consistency of the first person.

- I think the maintenance thread till the earth day challenge begins is an excellent idea.

TINAJANE76 will appreciate that. :-)

151.2--Got a little wacky this past week, but the weight's already starting to come back down. Being only 1.2 pounds over my center at the beginning of January is a huge victory for me!

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since.

Up just slightly, .4 pounds from last week to end the challenge at 133.0. Still out of range, but I still feel good, I made it through the holidays, enjoyed myself, and am almost halfway through an new strength training program! My goal for now is to get stronger, then I'll decide if I want to get back to my weight goal from last year or not.

Congrats to everyone who stuck with this challenge!

highest weight ever:202, SP starting weight: 143

New goal: 125 lbs, just to see what that looks and feels like! Hit it: Feb 2013!

Imdo appreciate theae challenges, whichnhelp keep me accountable. I have 2 suggestions. 1. Could we have a trophy for finishing the challenge? 2. It looks as if your deviations get added up whether they are over or under your target weight. If thatnis so, could they perhaps be averaged out instead?
I think the maintenance thread till the earth day challenge begins is an excellent idea.

I guess I got more salt than I thought at New Year's Eve. I did get pretty thirsty, and drank a lot of water after 10. Kept track of my calories, anyway. It was a higher day, but not out the window.

Week 8 results are in!

One week left!

These results are usually available at the below link on Tuesday mornings, even if it takes me a while to post to the thread. And since entries are timestamped, you can log your data for the current week anytime after Midnight, Monday Eastern. You don't have to wait for this post to show up on the thread.

Stats on how closely people are staying within their pre-selected goal range:
docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0Ah4Kr
A4GkhKgdERmbGZCeV93OGtCNTN2c3dTT2phdWc
&single=true&gid=4&output=html


Stats on how closely people are staying relative to their current average weight:
docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ah4Kr
A4GkhKgdERmbGZCeV93OGtCNTN2c3dTT2phdWc
&usp=drive_web#gid=15


You have until midnight, next Monday to log your weight for this week. Here is the form for doing that:
docs.google.com/forms/d/1dOi53lkhX2P-3ZxHJ
YigXC_H0QXzocSkeJI4Ndo0Rsw/viewform


Congratulations to the following people for staying within their pre-selected +/- 3% range and logging it:

MOBYCARP

NELLJONES
HMMILLER007
SLENDERELLA61
DESERTJULZ
CELIAMINER
SPARKARINO
LAFEMMEDELALUNE

And KUDOS to these people who went out of range (over or under) but logged anyway. They understand that accountability is important - maybe even more important - when you're not in your “happy” range:

HONEYCAT22000 (Back in range, now!)
LAURIE5658
VTRICIA (Back in range, now!)
DUBINJL
CANDACEL24 (Back in range, now!)
WESTCOASTKID (Back in range, now!)
GLORIAMAJDI
CROSSLITES
CAROLISCIOUS
ANNEMAC5
KAYOTIC

These people either logged later than the deadline, or did not log and there is no backup here, so have dropped from the official challenge:

Feel free to update us every week on this thread and join us in the next one!

Well I am up to 155, got out and exercised yesterday and was careful watching the food. Tonight will be a dinner and I am sure I will be up a little more tomorrow. But all in all this was a good Challenge it helped me to get back on track fast, reminded me to make as many good choices as I could and to get in some exercise.

Sunny in Southern California PST

Challenges are what make life full of stress and anxiety and overcoming them is what can wear you out. Stay stong.

Don't stay down, every storm runs out of rain.
