    Okay, I am wondering how quick the lot of us on here can lose a hundred pounds total starting from this weeks weigh in. I was down 1 this week. Not much help. So there are only 99 to go. Who is with me on this challenge!???

    And then how about trying a ton off counting our total weight losses. It may take until summer or Christmas next year but that would still be cool to try. Total weight loss for me is 31 currently.

    Rules: you total when you add your loss on in the post.

    Can you count me in? I just lost 10 in the last 3 weeks. I am losing right at 1/2 pound a day. But that is probably going to slow down.

    oops. Not 1 pound, TEN pounds!

    Thats awesome. I actually put down a brownie because I was thinking about this post and that I was accountable to the total. Maybe this is the motivation I need to get back on track. Glad everyone is here. Thanks.

    We are at 93 to go.

    Hey! I lost 1.5 pounds, not 1 lb. So that's 92.5 to go. Every little bit helps doncha know! :p

    I thought I'd include a little more information to make it more interesting.

    I joined Weight Watchers Sept of 2005. I've lost 49 pounds to date. When I started I weighed 222 lbs. and I now weigh 173 lbs. I went from a 20W to a regular 12 :dance: I still need to lose 18 lbs. to reach my goal weight of 155.

    I'd love to hear more about other people's goals.

    I'm generally a lurker, but will volunteer my 1.5 pound loss this week.

    I don't know what I weigh or if I have lost anything, but I will jump on board and add to this as the weight comes off. Count me in!

    Not to drift too far, but how tall are you? My chest and butt just drive me crazy. I'm 5'7 and if I weighed 173, I'd probably have to wear a 16! I weigh 161 right now and my 12's and 14's are tight. I have a friend who is the same height and weight as I am, but she has no butt and can wear a 10. It's maddening.

    (Congrats on the weight loss, by the way!)

    -MaineFarm Mom - no specific day - Thursday is the weighin day here, if you want to do the WI then thats fine or whenever convenient - I would think the same day every week is best.

    Cheryl - how many did you lose this past week? We can use it as the starting point for the 100 and the 10 for the ton. Does that work?

    So right now we are at 91 pounds gone.

    My whole goal on this was to motivate me and others and maybe get the board hopping again so we can all keep going strong through the holidays.

    My high weight this time was 223 on WW weighin (WI) on March 2, 2006. I joined to support my dd who needed to join for health reasons. I was really not ready and I lost little the first 2 weeks. Then I got through my sugar addiction and ended up losing down to 183. I gained back to 187 and stayed between 187 and 189 for about 2 months. Then the halloween candy came out and I discovered Twix candy - I ate 3 bags in 3 days. I had tight fitting jeans. I am back on track and relosing the weight.

    I am trying to lose because I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia and the extra weight is killing me. I also am a borderline diabetic. I got tired of my belly sitting down before I did and my breath being gone on 1 flight of stairs. THat is my story.
