@Lessofkedi: You're welcome re. the reminder about rice cakes. I also forgot about them & only started eating them a couple of months ago. I eat them now instead of bread which I find a bit moreish. I like rice cakes but I can take or leave them.
I want in on this challenge. I want to lose 6 pounds by Thanksgiving. I'm setting a small goal this time around so that I don't lose focus. Any tips, help or support that you all can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the reminders about rice cakes I haven't had one of those in so long, I'm going to go to the store to pick up a bag.
You can sign up ANY TIME between now and Monday November 7 at midnight, USA Eastern Time.
If you're in the process of losing weight right now, you might as well sign up NOW, so your starting weight will be higher.
Weigh in weeks will go from Tuesday when I get the numbers crunched and charts updated until the following Monday (midnight, USA Eastern time). You can weigh in any time during the week. You can weigh in more than once if you're afraid you'll forget, and if you do, I'll just take the latest weight and delete the earlier one(s).
Yeah SALSIFY, it'll be tough. But I figure you can take it. You've kicked my butt in this challenge both in consistently losing and in % weight removed. Game On, dudette. LOL

As the Scary Loser Challenge has been lucky for me, I'll carry on with Jolliest Loser. I'm not sure how I'll make it through Xmas & New Year without a gain, but the physicsdiet average has been very forgiving so far - so I might as well test it to the limit!

Super! Then I will subscribe. It is so much easier for me since the scale is in Kg. My weigh in day is always Friday and I live at the other side of the big pond so I will always be to early anyway I guess. Right now it is close to midnight, 11 minutes to it.
Since we're doing this in PERCENTAGE, yes, absotively posilutely you can do it in kg.
You can also use Metric Tonnes, Atomic Mass Units, Solar Mass, or even inverse Compton wavelength and Schwarzschild radius.

Can I subscribe in Kg instead of Lb?

When you post something to this forum, under the box where you put in your text, isn't there a little box under the lower left corner that is checked and says " I want an email to be sent to me when anyone replies to this topic"?
I'm pretty sure that's how I subscribe to this thread... Am I missing something?

I don't like that I couldn't subscribe to this thread.
To be part of the current challenge you need to join by Monday, November 7, midnight EST. After that you will need to wait until the next one.
We will record our weights (and % body fat if you happen to measure it) once a week, for 8 weeks (through January 2). You can use any method for calculating your weight that you like. (For example, you can use the weighted moving average from PhysicsDiet.com)
1. Post your weigh-in every week no later than midnight Eastern Time, Monday, on a link that will be provided.
2. You can post your weekly weight anytime during the week, but must be no later than midnight EST on Monday.
3. If you gain, you are OUT of the running for the title of Jolliest Loser. (But keep logging for a consolation prize - we'll track how many times everyone posts a weight within range among the 8 weeks of the challenge and you'll stay on the challenge graph)
4. If you don't post your weight each week by midnight on Monday, you are OUT of the challenge altogether.
5. If you lose or maintain, you stay IN the challenge for the title of Jolliest Loser.
6. The challenge will run for eight weeks (through January 2) or until there are three participants remaining, whichever is sooner.
There will be no late weigh-ins or late sign ups. This means if you post at or after 12:01am Eastern Time on Tuesday, you are OUT of the challenge.
Food season is UPON US! Who wants to join forces and push through to their goals IN SPITE of all the temptations hovering?
Check it out. This is even reflected in our seasonal icons!
Halloween Thanksgiving Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, etc. Boxing Day New Year's
And after that we'll have THESE to contend with:
Superbowl Sunday Valentine's Day Mardi Gras St. Patrick's Day Easter
It's the time of year I dread, because I seem to have to work extra hard to keep from overindulging. Maybe this challenge can help with that!
