Alright ladies and gents! Today is weigh in Day for WEEK 1! I hope you guys did better than me!!! I gained 2.2 pounds! WOW---- totally going in the wrong direction! Time to get back into the groove here... I know what I did wrong.... EVERYTHING I haven't exercised and I haven't eaten good all week and haven't drank my water! -OK RANT OVER-

I want everyone to try this- This may just help us make sure we are logging and keep us a little more on schedule.

Open your diary to everyone!... make it public!!!!!!

Every day, I want you to look at the person's diary that is listed above you on the spreadsheet from the day before. I want you to give them one thing that they could have improved on and one thing that you see that they have done good on.

Since the first person on the list doesnt have anyone above them, I will take this person and the person above me- 2 people total for me.

For example:

I will look at _kitty's diary and will comment on it. One good thing, and one thing that she needs to improve on.

***** To do this- everyone needs to make their diary private, and everyone needs to make sure their MFP user name is spelled correctly on the spreadsheet. *******

Of course, if there are technical difficulties (or if someone is not opening their diaries, this won't work- so you could always pick someone else on the list that seems like they could use some help). I sure hope this works.

    Ok - made my diary public :) This is a good challenge, b/c in the past when I have been successful on this site, I tracked EVERYTHING - food, exercise, you name it.

    Haven't tracked in a long time (I've lost the last 2 weeks, so I'm doing something right - but this will probably get me even better results :))

    I'm not sure whether that would make sense for my food diary since everything is in German... ;-)

    I LOVE this group!!!! You guys keep me so motivated! I can't believe the results. I was expecting a gain for sure since I had fallen off the wagon and ate out every single day for a week. I found this group and pulled it together again and WOW! THANKS!!!!!!! :) Lost 3lbs!

    I am scared to do this... but I think I will give it a try.

    I already know what I need to improve on this week... more protein. :) I also gave up pop (including my major vice, diet dew) yesterday.

    If we are going by the spreadsheet, wouldn't we be commenting on the same person ever day as it seems to be alphabetical order?

    I believe mine is now public. I"m going to look at this like an employment review. Point out the areas that I have an opportunity to attack.

    Challenge accepted. Making my diary public is probably one of the scariest things I have done. However, it will make me more accountable. That must be why we pay you the big bucks to be our fearless leader. LOL

    Oh Lordy Lordy, my diary is now public. I guess it will make me think twice before I pig out.

    The person above me is diddyk. We are now friends.

    My diary is now public too! I've been logging everything...good or bad...to keep me on track. This is kinda scary!

    Just for clarification...where do we put our comments? Directly on the spreadsheet or somewhere else?

    I completely missed the part about joining the group for this! I thought the challenges would be updated on the spreadsheet! :sick: Oops! Will start checking in here now! lol And my diary has always been public... I know I need more protein! It's just so hard without yucky shakes and protein bars!
