    @vttym totally noticed the lull too :P

    I'm just happy to be actually going to the gym, as I took a while off at the end of last year and paid for it :P so even if I don't hit X number, at least i can be happy about Going :D

    We all need to keep up the momentum

    Momentum momentum momentum.

    Hey so now I have the times for Omegarounds, I won't have any conflict with the Fitocracy panel. Should we aim for the meetup to be outside the Manticore Theater after the panel ends (1PM), so the people that want to watch the Q&A can also attend?

    I'm down for a meetup Friday at 1. Also, I lost almost 2 pounds this week! Huzzah! I am so close to the 180s I can taste it. I'd really love to break through another decade of weight by PAX.
    Week 1, 2/07/12: Weight 197 (+/- 0 lbs, +/- 0%)
    Week 2, 2/14/12: Weight 195.6 (- 1.4 lbs, - .7%)

    Week 6, 3/13/12: Weight 194.0 (-3.0 lbs, -1.5%)
    Week 7, 3/20/12: Weight 192.2 (-4.8 lbs, -2.4%)
    Week 8, 3/27/12:
    Week 9: 4/05/12 (AT PAX!!!):

    The difference since last week? Logging every food!!! No cheating by not writing down little bites. Also I added one gym day back into my schedule w/ the two long dog walks I've been maintaining. And walking up the stairs to the third floor every time I go to the bathroom (at least 12 flights a day!) Goal for this week - repeat! Two long dog walks, 1 gym session, always take the stairs, and TOTAL food logging!

    Good luck everyone! Let's keep it goin till PAX!!!

    Out of state for a weigh-in, but will see about tomorrow. Expecting a little jump after spending time free-wheeling with buddies over the weekend, followed by a 2-day trip home. Hoping to stay on track overall though. We shall see.

    Considering I actually bubbled back up to 224 between weigh-ins, I consider this OK - I certainly was getting a little lax last week, and I'm glad my body sent a wake up call to me. I've set a new goal of 216 by PAX to help get me refocused, since hitting 220 seems to have put me in vacation mode.

    Still feel great, though.. so that's saying something.

    That's awesome! I also tend to leave my sneakers on. That way I work just that much harder and then get an accurate weigh in about once a month for an ego boost when I see my nutritionist.

    @adias.angel - Awesome work :)

    I'm pretty much nekkid when I weigh myself.. aside from a towel and flip flops. That could make the weigh-in at PAX interesting :P

    Yeah, that's why I'm thinking a weigh in won't be a good idea. Weight varies from scale to scale, also it would be a bit cumbersome, also everyone generally weighs in in their skivvies or less. Gonna just say a quick meetup, a how-do-you-do, and a place to give out the challenge coins to our two winners.

    So, I thought I was going to have another bleh week and probably not lose anything. Hell, I thought last week was a fluke in either my body being weird or the scale acting wacky.

    I lost 2.2 lbs this week. Weight Watchers kindly told me I reached a milestone of 25 lbs lost (that is since the beginning of the year). I have no clue what to say to that.

    At +1 lb. from where I originally started but am feeling great! Clothes are fitting better, running 3-4 times a week and starting to get in more YAYOG workouts. Feeling much happier than I thought I would be to be putting on weight. :)

    Hate to bum you out, but there's still one prize per winner, just 2 contests. We have 1) Most Fitocracy Points and 2) Highest Percentage Weight Lost. If those 2 happen to be the same person, 2nd place from both contest must run an obstacle course to determine who gets the 2nd coin.

    update on my goals from a couple months ago:
    I went from 168lbs(last year) to where I was a few months ago(158lbs) when I set my goals. I am now 148lbs and feeling pretty good at this weight. My other goal was to acquire a 6-pack, and although i have gained a much flatter stomach... my hatred of ab workouts has eliminated it from my reach. All in all, though, I am content with where I am now, and am ranking my goals as 85% success! :) You can judge for yourself when I meet you all!

    Thanks team!

    Some awesome progress and news from everyone -- @SpectacledBear I hear ya on feeling and fitting better without always seeing a loss - these past 2 weeks I've been at the same weight, but feel like everything is much looser on me...

    Just 2 more weeks, everyone! - you know you'll probably cheat a little at PAX, so finish strong and give yourself some room to have a little fun.

    Real trick will be - how soon to start a PAX Fitness 2013 group so we can keep the motivation going? :)

    Considering that this is my New Year's resolution, I am going all year. My friends wedding is on May 20th or so and I plan on being around 214 lb by then. I started at 256 and am down to 231 so far since the first of the year.

    So, for the challenge, can I still post my stats like everyone else or do I have to be a part of the fitocracy group? I am just lazy and don't feel like joining. I will post my stats anyway!



    (started the year at 256, competition at 245.8)

    (week - date - weight - lbs lost that week)
    Week 1, 2/07/12: 243.2 (-2.6 lbs)
    Week 2, 2/14/12: 240.0 (-3.2 lbs)
    Week 3, 2/21/12: 239.8 (-0.2 lbs)
    Week 4, 2/28/12: 237.2 (-2.6 lbs)
    Week 5, 3/06/12: 238.2 (+1.0 lbs)
    Week 6, 3/13/12: 233.2 (-5.0 lbs)
    Week 7, 3/20/12: 231.0 (-2.2 lbs)
    Week 8, 3/27/12:
    Week 9: 4/05/12 (AT PAX!!!):

    14.8 lbs lost (in this time frame)

    highest loss this year

    Per math from my friend, my % for the competition is 6% lost. If that is wrong, yell at him!


    My weigh in day is like a day or two off from the dates you guys use. I usually weigh in on Thursdays, but it looks like you guys do Tuesday or so. Same difference.

    Also, holy fuck. PAX is in two weeks? I need to get my train ticket.
