Thumbs up '10kgs in 6 Weeks' Starting Sat NOV 1st 2008

Hey there to one and all,

I have been watching the previous '10kgs in 6 Week' challenge & can't wait to see the final stats!

10kgs in 6 weeks is fairly achievable (1.6ish kilos per week) so I think this is an AWESOME challenge and one that I could definitely sink my teeth into and hopefully others. Last dash for summer hey...............

I haven't had any experience in organising anything like this but could try if anyone is interested?

Drop a line in here if you're up for it, there are three of us who are keen already... the more the merrier, cheerier and determinder (Briohny word )

I think the most straight forward way to run it is by only logging our weekly weight (no measurements)...
What do you think?

Hoping to find people keen to give it a go and go the long haul...

If you could weigh yourself this Sat NOV 1st and post your weight, then we are off and losing

May the force be with you and a bottle of water beside you!

WARNING: NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!!!

G'Day

Yep, me too. That's about all I have to go, now and my goal date is 14th December so the challenge will fit in nicely!

See you Saturday!

Hi Bri,
Can I make a suggestion?

Why don't you have a post on your Starting day with everybody's name listed and they can go in and "edit" it with their current weight.
You can do this at the end of every week.

It will make it easier for the people in the challenge to check their progress and it will also make it a great reference for others following to see.

I can understand what Shell is saying so how about a way around the editing. What if everyone who wants to enter send Bri a PM with their starting weight and then Bri add one entry listing everyone with all their starting weights. That way, as shell said, it's a great reference for others to follow.

Basically each week all participants PM Bri with their Saturday weights and on, hmmm, say Tuesday, Bri posts them into one entry. By posting on Tuesday that give people time to log on and advise Bri.

Does that make sense? Bri, it's your challenge so what ever works best for you.

Well how cool is this - love the response guys!!!

Shell, Asy & NBS - ta muchly for your suggestions - greatly appreciated.

I reckon since we aren't able to edit posts, the best way is for entrants to PM me with their weekly weight; say any time from Saturday to Monday and I will post results either Monday evening (If there are no stragglers) or Tuesday morning - Plan?

Boss is away at work today so me being a personal assistant don't have alot to do, really I do but Friday's it's so easy to switch off...
Anywhoo - I have just set up an excel template, formulas are waiting for our losses.

Entrants for this challenge, starting NOV 1st are...........................

1 Polly
2 TwoZeds
3 Tezza
4 Shanara
5 Nat
6 Kristine
7 Dedeemay
8 Ronky
9 shrinkingTam
10 jimbo
11 Bri

If anyone else is interested, just leave a msg here on the thread or PM me before Midnight tonight (Fri Oct 31) Very official, I know, serious business here - we have kilos to smash away!!!

Let the games begin - I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited and thank you to all for your interest, we can do this together

Stay well, happy and healthy...

Good luck everyone, I wish you all the best at smashing those kilos away.

Unfortunately I only weigh in once a month so can't join this challenge. I'll stick with my dancing mangoes.

Let the games begin!
