OOOH! Ya No! My diet consists of mostly meat! Even a snack is beef jerky.

 

I was watching a movie the other day where the villian had unbeatable super powers because he is vegan! It's called Scott Pilgram vs The World

BarefootMama99 - You might try changing up the brand of Greek yogurt you buy. I find some are tastier than other. I'm not a fan of Fage but Greek Gods is excellent just plain. I've found that Trader Joe's is really yummy too although I'm not sure when I last purchased yogurt from there (it might have been years ago).

 

I think a new thread would be good too. What week are we on now?

 

I'm 165 today! Down 2.5 lbs from last week (where I had gained 0.5 lb). My total for the challenge is 8 lbs currently. Very happy with that!

I managed to not gain anything with my injured self. Not a loss but at least not a gain. Weighed in a 208 again this morning. I am really into a another 8 weeks. I lost 17 pounds in this 8 weeks. Ready to do that again!

156.5, so *up* 2lbs. I don't get it--I haven't been "bad" enough to cause a 2lb gain, I wouldn't think. WTF is wrong w my body? It's been all kinds of crazy this month. greensad.gif

Sorry again, red team. IDK how I'm going to actually lose weight, and idk if any team will have me for another two months...

I bought two running outfits last night for warm weather. I need to get out there more than every other day, it seems.

216.4 this morning. Only down .4.  AF started yesterday and I had two days of eating dark chocolate. So relieved I didn't gain this week. Maybe all the water I'm drinking is helping.

The reason FAGE isn't as good as Greek Gods or Trader Joes Brand is because they use whole milk. Fage uses non fat or 2% fat.

 

 

Well I'm finishing this challenge at 188.8lbs I lost 20 lbs and am now at my pre pregnancy weight. My total weight loss goal is to be at 170lbs so I still have 18lbs to lose. I would love to join for another 8 weeks.

 

IT IS SOOOOO GOOD NOT TO WEIGH 208LBS ANY MORE!

Late check-in....I'm at 123.6, so not much of a loss, but still something!  Is today the last day of the challenge or is next Monday the final weigh-in?

Ok, I think Barefootmama's suggestion is good. 

 

A week off, open it up to any newbies... and mix the teams up too. 

 

I can threadkeep if you're all good with that, Barefootmama, if you can keep track of weigh ins, and post the list once a week, I can do the calculations and pie charts. 

 

I will post a new thread now, to open it up for another 8 weeks starting next week.  I'll come back and link it for whoever wants to keep it going. 

 

Okay, here is the new thread: link

Ok, sounds good to me!  Glad to help :)  If you decide you need me to do additional "bookkeeping"  during the next challenge, just let me know.

 

Once all the weigh ins are in, let us know how the teams finished!!!

 

See you all in the next challenge!

Okay, so come to a conclusion and result has been a bit more difficult than expected.  We did lose a few along the way, and there has been no word from Janine for a few weeks.

In the end, the RED team had 7 players, and the BLUE, only 5.  BUT.... when I did the figures, it's pretty clear who the winner is - you will see what I mean

 

 

    Start Finish Percentage Total loss
Dantes Mama 5'8 183.8 163.0 11.3 20.8
Trekking Girl 5'6 208 188.8 9.2 19.2
Clay Bear 5'8 225 208.0 7.6 17
Buzzer Beater 5'6 153 147.0 3.9 6
Barefoot mama99 5'8 200.4 196.8 1.8 3.6
    970.2 903.6 6.91 66.6
           
Lovetolaugh 5'2 139 123.6 11.1 15.4
Milk8shake 5'7 192 180.2 6.2 11.8
Pacific Bliss 5'4 177 168.8 4.63 8.2

Amanda Marie 5'4 222 216.4 2.5 5.59
PoppyMama 5'8 220 215 2.27 5.0
Stegenrae 5'6 150 156.5   +6.5
    1273 1225.5 3.73 47.5

 

 

 

I'm sure you will agree, that after losing a whopping 66.6lbs, the BLUE TEAM are the WINNERS!! 

CONGRATS BLUE TEAM!  

 

For those that are interested, the individual results are below:

 

 

 

Dantes Mama 11.3
Lovetolaugh 11.1
Trekking Girl 9.2
Clay Bear 7.6
Milk8shake 6.2
Pacific Bliss 4.63
AllisonRose 4.6
Buzzer Beater 3.9
Amanda Marie 2.5
PoppyMama 2.27
Barefoot mama99 1.8
Stegenrae +4.3

 

 

Well done Dantesmama!!
