I'm starting a new weight-loss filter. weirdchic862 and I both need to lose weight. She needs to lose 20 pounds to make weight for signing up for the military. I want to lose weight too- not sure how much, but from looking at people I know, and asking (gingerly) where they get their jeans and what size they wear, it seems to me that I would be Very Happy wearing a size 10 in Gap jeans (adjusting for body disproportion). I told
that I would race her in dropping the 20 pounds. She has a distinct advantage, being 20 years younger than I am and in a physically more active job. If she wins, I'll give her $50. If she maintains her weight within 5 pounds for 75% or more of the weekly weigh-ins, I'll pay her an additional $100 when she goes off to basic. I'll open this up to most people who ask, especially if I know that you're struggling with the same issue yourselves. Certain people who have asked me recently how much I weigh whom I do not perceive to be significantly overweight may be deemed ineligible.... you know who you are! I'll post my weekly weigh-ins, and may also post my exercise and my eating habits.
