Week 1 Results!!!

Did you know that a high school kid from Texas just recently benched pressed 700lbs (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1580473-texas-football-player-lifting-700-pound-bench-press-is-pretty-much-amazing), which is coincidentally close to the amount of weight that we have lost collectively as a group in a little more than one week! 726 lbs. to be exact! Those are both staggering numbers! We should have more since a mere 48% of the 560 people that signed up on the spreadsheet have checked in! So if you know someone on the spreadsheet that hasn’t checked in, shoot them a message and encourage them to participate!

So let’s get to the stats, or what I would like to call, nerdy fun stuff :) :

Week 1 Status

Overall Totals
- Total Week 1 Participation: 47.25%, down from last weeks 70.75%
- Cumulative Weight Loss Overall: 726 lbs., up from last weeks 327 lbs.

    I was in that group also. We got it this week though!

    Both of you are doing great though. Initial weight loss when we started and just a light increase the next week. Overall, you're both on the right track. So kudos to you both!!

    Momma always said I'd do something big. If I'm no longer in the top 5 for total weight loss, may I suggest a top 10. :)

    Good job everyone. Consistency is key.
  • Hey Jojo! You gotta let other people crack the top 5 :)

    Haha! I'm gonna need some help to track down 10 more avatars for the updates :)


    Hopefully by tomorrow we should be over 1,000 lbs. lost!! AMAZING!!!
