Is there any specific weigh-in day, like Tuesday or something?
alclark75 15 years ago
Newbirth this is a good point maybe we should have a day where we post if we have lost any weight.

Ok, I post my weight frequently in my blog, but I will be sure to weigh-in on Tuesdays.

Hi, I'll join. My blog is at

My current diet page is at

But I'm in the process of changing to fitday. Once my journal is public I'll post the link on the backpackit page.

I'd appreciate comments on my approach, especially if somebody decides to try it themselves. I've had really good success (I'm feeling a lot better - more energetic and a lot more in control about food but I haven't weighed myself.)

Would like to join. Motivation is a key component and battling the bulge. It's tough going at it alone.

Okay, I'm in.

I had come across a self-portrait posted by a very large woman on day 100 of a 365-day self-portrait-a-day challenge. She posted it and talked about her weight, etc. I thought to myself that posting a weekly photo along with my weight would be a good form of motivation for weight loss. Then I thought, "I wonder if there's a group for that"? And so here I am!

I do have a mostly dormant blog where I can post updates, but I suspect I'll be posting updates in a set on my flickr page instead.

I'm 6'1" and in the neighborhood of 265. I'd like to be down below 190. We'll see. First weigh-in and photo on Tuesday, July 10!

Wally: We look forward to having you. Although our group isn't nearly as active as it once was, -- we're all still here, ready to help where we can. Thanks for joining and I personally look forward to watching your progress!

Add me please, saw the link from Lifehacker and thought it a great idea

Colin: One suggestion to help keep the group more active would be to create a single "Post Your Weigh-Ins Here" thread, rather than the individual "Week 99 Weigh-Ins" threads. One advantage is that it would be one less thing for you to do each week (hooray!). Another advantage is that, by eliminating the "Week 99" bit, it would encourage people to jump in any time, rather than feeling like they missed the start and are too late.

Just my $.02. I did weigh in on Tuesday, by the way. I'm at 259.8. Life was a bit crowded yesterday, so I didn't get a photo taken to post. I'll hopefully get that done soon!

Hey all. I've lost about 30 lbs over last year. Unfortunately over the winter (it gets cold here in the midwest!) I've gained back about ten of those pounds. Time to hop back up on the wagon/tread mill. I'm looking forward to having a community I can participate in.
