Good morning, donac! Thanks for being our keeper of the COW (Challenge of the Week). You hopped on the thread before I finished fixing up the post for the link to the COW -- will do that next.

Good morning losers! Thanks for the new thread Lisa. My goal this time is to not just have the COW floating in my head but to actually log and report...good luck to me!

First weigh in on the day after the snackiest day of the year for me - yikes! Well that's okay, bigger loss for the next week right?

We always have friends over and I'm planning on making some healthier snacks this year - still have to watch how much though. And DH wants those weenies wrapped in crescent rolls - those are so addicting! I'll have to step away.

Welcome everyone!!

Welcome everyone!!
So do you think DH would notice if you used turkey weenies and light crescent rolls? I agree those things are addictive.

You'll like the COW, jenn. I have been kind of missing it these last couple of weeks.

Welcome BL 9 participants!

I thought I would do a warm up QOTD (Question of the Day) for the next couple of days while we wait for our challenge to officially start. As you chime in on our new thread -- so we know we didn't lose you -- please introduce yourself.

If you are new to our challenge it can be a little daunting at first because we have a lot of folks signed up. Remember all you need to do is PM your starting weight to LuvBaloo on Friday 1/1. Chatting on the thread and answering the QOTD is optional but we hope that you will join us.

I think that we are going to have a great challenge!

Oops! Forgot to answer the QOTD . . . I am Lisa and the hostess and coach hostess for this challenge. You can PM me if you have any questions about the challenge or want to try coaching. I am married and have a 10 year old son. In the real world I am a real estate attorney which means I have a lot of responsibility but I have a lot of flexibility, too. It is a good thing. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

to so many new and returning participants! We are so going to rock this challenge!

A special welcome to my good friend Kimwim8!!


QOTD:As you chime in on our new thread -- so we know we didn't lose you -- please introduce yourself.

I'm Corinna, 36 year old mom of 2, husband of 1. I started the Biggest Loser challenge for the first time last January, right around the time I ran my first half marathon.....with 50 pounds to lose. I vowed I wanted to be smaller for the half marathon in 2010, and the Biggest Loser Challenge has definitely helped me on my way to fulfill that vow. Right now I am a little below my WW goal weight, but am struggling to decide if I want to continue my efforts to lose or be happy where I am and maintain!

I'm so looking forward to this new challenge and am excited to get to know this amazing group!

First time also here.

I want to be on the Maintainer team (I think I signed up on the right place, the sticky thread?)

I had a BC scare at 35, a friend and a few GP died. Well it motivated me to change my life. I lost 70 pounds over 2 years ago, (first time in my life at a healthy BMI) put back 5 but really need to tone it all up.

With a BIG family beach trip coming this summer I am more determined to feel better in my own skin.

So I decided NOT to wait until the 1st and focus on me now. (Dh's GP just has been really sick and just passed this week, me and Mom have been sick the last few weeks, kids acting up, etc...) Life is so crazy lately I am afraid I am going to forget about me and keeping my goals.

First time for me as well. I'm Kim, single mom to a dd9 and about to be 34 in a few weeks. My weight has slowly been rising every year but now I feel like it is out of control. I have 100+ to lose so it feels a little overwhelming. I am going to try and take it 5lbs at a time and see how that works. My biggest issue is portion control so I hope if I can get that under control everything else will fall into place. I am so excited for this to start.

I should warn everyone that I have a tendancy to share everything when I'm on a long term chat like this so I'm warning you, you will know me very well by the end of this. Some stuff you may not even want to know but I'll tell you anyway

Kim
