    Default Who is PD's BIGGEST LOSER???

    Official Thread for Q1 2008 round.

    EVERYONE IS INVITED TO JOIN. If you want a little motivation to get into better shape in 2008, look no further. Post your progress and tips, etc. here. It takes three things: Exercise a little more, eat a little less and periodically post your weight.

    RULES OF PLAY:

    Joining the pool is easy. Just post your starting weight in this thread and you are officially in.

    There are two categories: "In it to win it" and "Fantasy League." Your category needs to be announced at your first weigh-in. Please no take backs later in the round.

    "In it to win it" is a $10 buy-in per 3 month round, winner take all pool. "Fantasy League" is the same commitment to post but with no money involved.

    You can join at any time, but the final weigh-in will be March 31. Any final weight listed after 12:00 am Indiana time on April 1 will only count as the starting weight of the following round and your last weigh in from the round prior will be used to calculate your results.

    The poster who loses the highest percentage of weight is the winner. Here's the formula: Beginning weight (-) Current weight (=) Weight loss (divided by) Beginning weight (=) Percentage of body weight lost.

    Weighed in this morning since I'll be traveling tomorrow.

    Start- 262.5
    Week 1- 254.5 Net Loss 8lbs

    Good week for the loss, but this one was entirely about not eating as much as I did over christmas and being extremely physically active for work(doing inventory) and helping my brother move apartments. From one 2nd story apartment to another.

    Now thats over we'll find out how things go from here......I know I have got to find a way to exercise or this all for nothing....

    I went up to 303. I sort of expected it though. My body always goes into panic mode before starting to shed the pounds.

    Net loss is +6.

    You know, I'm glad you are doing this. As a dude, I feel ashamed if I go on a diet. "Hey man, want to order some pizza?" "Nah, I'm watching my figure." It just doesn't work.

    However, if I can say "Nah, I'm in a competition. If I lose the most weight, I win like $150"......... I can make that work.

    So I'm in, and I'm in it to win it. Only problem: no scale in the house right now. No sweat, I'll find something. I guess it is my loss if I keep waiting.

    Update:

    Bought a scale this morning. Stepped on it, and thought "Hey, not too shabby!" Then I read the directions about adjusting the scale to zero. Then the real truth came out.




    241 lbs - in it to win it.

    New guy her in the PD Biggest Loser-

    I am in a Veteran's Administration weight loss program since August at the Marion, IN campus. Everyone else in my cless is older WWII and Vietnam vets. I am the young kid at 36. I've done poorly this past two months because of ankle reconstructive surgery, but will be back in the flow starting Monday. Hopefully my first treadmill walk will go good and I can resume exercise.

    I'll be in the fantasy league because I can't afford any extra cash out because my daughter's medication co-pays. 400$ with insurance and 1800$ a month without for one medication.

    First Weight- 301.6 lbs
    Current Weight- 273.8 lbs
    Next weigh day: January 25

    Start- 262.5
    Week 1: 254.5 Weekly Loss 8/ Net Loss 8 lbs/3%
    Week 2: 252 Weekly Loss 2.5/ Net Loss 10.5 lbs/4%

    I should have been lower that that, but I had pizza yesterday and I ate a little too much.

    I still haven't found a way to get consistent exercise in my schedule. Thats really the only way I can do this.

    I think I've lost 1 pound so far. It's tough out there. The Colts game didn't help.
