Do the red and blue team colors have anything to do with political affiliation, or is that coincidence? LOL In case they are, I want to be Red.

Hi, Betsielou!

My final weight for last month was: 204
Date This Wednesday was: 3-1-17
My Weight This Wednesday was: 203

I am not good at challenges. We'll see how this goes.

Hi everyone, glad somemore are joining us here. Jamie just randomly puts people on groups, so no Carol your political affiliation doesn't matter , but you are welcome to join me on the red team.

We mostly just try to support and encourage one another and not get bogged down w/who "wins".

So lets see how we all do .

so far I find:
Blue team--Chris232, qurlybee
Red team--PACarolsue, betsielou

Yes I want my team to win.
If it didn't matter we would not keep score.
and the winners don't matter, as we are all winners.

asheizabeth, what team are you picking?
I guess Jamie can even it all out as people join.
I am asking my other forum - 'March daily weighers' to join here too.
we need more team members.

Ohhhh, I don't know if I can handle all this pressure! This really had been a year for "Red Team Winners" so I'm hoping to follow suit, here. LOL I do like the enthusiasm!

Sure. Why not.

I didn't think the other thread I participate in over at the Century Club was going to as much fun as it is, and I am pleasantly surprised. Accountability maybe....

Sign me up.

2/28/2017.. 288.3
3/01/2017.. 287.2
3/02/2017.. 284.8
3/03/2017.. 284.2

I believe Stan is on the blue side, he's the one that makes the century club interesting.

Chris, Curlybee, Stan, Asheli we've got this. This is what I need is to be challenged.

Michelle, what is GF? LC I get and the Fung fasting book is a part of my current Kindle book list. But GF? The most complete Low Carb Friends glossary of terms I can find doesn't list it. http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/terms.shtml

Maybe there is a better one?

I'd like to average 10# a month through December. I'm pretty happy with ~47 since last Christmas.

What do I win? Our gift registry is at Tiff----um----wait...
