    IMPORTANT QUESTION: I just looked at the spreadsheet in the link you provided and I noticed that the participants seem to be weighing themselves weekly. I do not own a scale and only weigh myself every 4 to 6 weeks when I see my doctor. Does the fact that I will not be weighing myself weekly disqualify me from participating in this challenge?

    No..you do not have to use the spreadsheet at all. When you weigh is completely up to you. This is your journey so do what works for you.

    I'm in! Hope the warmer weather motivates me more! Lost some in the Easter challenge, but not as much as I would have liked, but onwards and upwards :)

    If you decide to use the spreadsheet, I would recommend entering your weight on the appropriate week that you weighed in, but also enter that same weight for each of the following weeks until your next weigh-in at your appointment.

    The spreadsheet will not calculate correctly unless there is a number in each week.

    As an example:
    If you weigh in on April 6th (week 1) at 194 pounds (I'll use my weight as an example) and you know your next appointment is May 6th (which would be week 5 of the challenge), I would recommend going ahead and pre-entering the 194 pounds for weeks 2 through week 4. Then for May 6th, you would enter your new weight and pre-enter that weight for the future weeks until your next appointment and so on.

    Like kayjosh2422 said, you don't have to use the spreadsheet. It's just an added tool there for you to use if you choose. :)

    Ok, Maybe I can actually stick to this one. I do much better when the weather is nice! So I'm hoping I will be more motivated this time around

    Also, I will put in my starting weight when we get closer to starting this one.

    I'm losing steadily and will pass the 20 lbs by Easter. I hope I do the same for this one!
    Good luck everyone! I can't wait for this one to start. I'm so glad winter is ending!

    Just started to see the scale move, so I will continue with this one. The Dr. says I have to lose 15 - 20 lbs.... so need all the help I can get.

    Be nice if it were sooner. :)

    If your wanting to get started with something now, you can join our drop 20 by Easter group that's going on right now and ends the day before this one starts.

    Thanks, kayjosh2422 and cycletrak1! I just entered my information on the spreadsheet, including my April 6th starting weight since I know I won't be weighed again by that date. My plan is to TRY using the spreadsheet unless my technological impairment gets the better of me!
    Good luck to ALL who are participating in this challenge! :)
