Week six?  We’re half way through!  You guys are amazing!  Sorry I’m late with the results (again!)!  It’s been a crazy week between sick kids and hospital runs – I’ve had hardly any quality time with my computer at all!  But enough of that, on to the results …

Our Biggest Loser for the week, with an amazing 2.38% loss, is Joshua J!  It’s definitely impressive to break the 2% mark this far into the competition!

Don’t forget, today is weigh  in day!  If you’re participating in the challenge, get your weights to me today (McNuttBlog@gmail.com)!  Are we really already five weeks into this thing?  Almost half way to the finish line!  The ridiculous thing is that I’ve been sitting on the prize since the beginning – forgot completely to ever detail it!  I’ll fill you in with the results post!

Did you survive Halloween?  Get rid of the left over candy yet?  Temptations need to GO!  : )

Challenge week five results and THE PRIZE!

tending the temple challenge

Week five!  I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to announce the prize!  The ridiculous part?  I had it all a month ago sitting next to my desk – time is going by waaaaay too fast!

Our Biggest Loser for the week, with an impressive 1.44% loss, is Mary C!  Great work – absolutely fantastic!  Mary was our only person to break 1% this week, so she’s our weekly champ and sole member of the hall of fame!

Halloween can be a tough time for dieters … here’s my tip: leave the candy stashed until the night of, give it out to trick or treaters, and then bundle any left overs up and give them to your church’s children’s program, the local YMCA, a youth organization, or even just chuck it!  Get it as far away as you can to eliminate the temptation, and do it as soon as possible!

If you are one of the handful that forgot to send in weights, you can still send ‘em in!  On to the prize …

Challenge week four results

tending the temple challenge

Week four!  We’re a third of the way through our twelve week challenge!  You guys are doing amazing; this is the tough time, where the routine really starts to set in and our years of bad habits start fighting back against the change.  If you were one of the ones who put a little weight on this week instead of losing, don’t feel too bad – I did, too!  1.2 pounds to be exact.  There were more of us than usual that did – be encouraged, you’re normal!  We all make mistakes because we’re fallible human beings.  It just means that we report the gain, and start over with the next week!  But on to the results!

Our Biggest Loser for the week, with an impressive 2.14% loss, is Lina B!  Absolutely fantastic!

Our weekly hall of fame (people who lost 1% or more) has two people in it; Tara Z and Joshua J!  Talk about hard work paying off!

If you are one of the handful that forgot to send in weights, you can still send ‘em in!

Here’s an exercise question for you – do like working out outside or inside?  With music or without?  I’m a treadmill and elliptical kind of guy.  The outside is nice, but I push myself harder on a machine when I’m listening to some music or watching a movie.  Just tune out the world and be a hamster on my wheel – it’s great!  What about you?

Weigh in day!

Question for the day …

Anyone have the Biggest Loser game for the Nintendo Wii or the DS?  I’d love to hear what you think of them!  I keep finding myself wanting a Wii Fit board or a DS so I can try them out …
