What are your final points? If you gained, if you are back to your December 1 weight by Jan 15 you get 10 points and if you're lower you get 20
In fairness whoever won in Dec gets a prize but there is a chance for redemption :D

I'll be fair and give myself a zero. I haven't weighed myself in a couple of weeks but I'm sure it's not good.
I get - 3
I ended up at +5 points for the challenge. I'm actually only +0.6 pounds from my weight on 11/30 and I'm still below goal at WW.
I decided to lower my daily points by 2 per day for a week or two to see how that treats me. Most importantly, I am doing my tracking/food journal for the first day since 12/23. With that, the change in the points, and running again I should be able to take a few more pounds off in January. I would really like to lose 5-10 more and then maintain there. If I can do that, I will probably have them lower my "official" goal weight I'm supposed to stay under so I don't have as much wiggle room in the future. Right now I'm five pounds under, so I don't want to be 10-15 pounds under goal and be able to gain that much back before I have any consequences at WW.

Ended up with a -2. All in all, I'm not not too disappointed, and motivation is pretty high to start 2012 off on the right foot. I'm happy we did this - it's been a good way to keep myself in check.
Jan 15, here I come!
Massive fail for me. I saw a number on the scale this morning that I haven't seen in a while. In a bad way. Being bummed out and miserable all the time = fat for me, which is great cuz it only makes me feel more bummed out.
maybe I'll get lucky and catch my sister's stomach flu when I go visit my mom later this afternoon :p
Gotta either not be upset by it or take corrective action. Letting it bring you down and be in charge not a good solution.
Yes I know you're right. Ever since Jan 2 (Jan 1 was a complete write-off), I have been making an effort to eat healthier. I'm not eating a whole lot less, but healthier is a good place to start for me, I think. :)

Is anybody shooting for the Jan 15 goal? I'm making an effort, but can't make any promises.
I am 1.2 from my December 1 weight. I think I can I think I can...
I've been doing a lot of thinking over the last two weeks and I want to switch out of maintenance mode and back into loss mode (reduce my daily points to a level where I will start losing again). I've done a really mediocre job of getting motivated for real as far as this maintenance program goes, and I finally figured out that it is because I am not satisfied with this weight. I'm about 5 pounds or so below the top of what WW defines as my "healthy" range, but there is still a good ways I could below that. I promise I am not being one of those overly self critical people here, but I am not satisfied yet. This isn't what I envisioned for myself when I started, so I think it means I need to keep going for awhile.
Obviously, Jan 15th isn't far off, so I don't know how much success I'll have between now and then....but I'm getting back on the wagon!

Seriously, people. No way I can lose weight with it being my birthday week and everybody wanting to take me out to dinner.
Yes I know my life is terrible because I have so many loving people who want to hang out with me.
But still. Gosh!
I'm mitigating damage this week and starting Sunday it's ON LIKE DONKEY KONG.
Yeah I think I'm SOL for the 15th but we shall see. I'm leaving town Friday so I'll go on my Friday weight. Le sigh.
Seems pancakes is the winner? Anyone disagree? PM me your address for your prize :D
We shall see who the winner, if anyone, is of the January 15th bit... or should we make it February 1

I think we should just call pancakes the winner and be done with it.
Maybe we should start a new one to get us through the dead of winter? Now that the holidays are over, there really are no (good) excuses.
Sounds good. Let's just start brand new. Fresh beginnings.

when does derby season start for you?
Tonight. We changed our schedule so as a ref I now only have to go Wednesday nights from 7-10 (I'm supposed to go Mondays as well for endurance skate but don't plan to always make it...)
Sweet! I expect something completely fantastic. ;-)
I would participate in a new challenge since I've decided to lose some more. Just let me know what you guys want to do.

I conveniently forgot to weigh-in on the 15th, oops.
Me too but I'm sure it aint pretty.
I have WW tomorrow, but I'm not sure how that will go.
Well, I am 0.2 over where I was on 12/6 and my book says I lost 1.4 that week versus the week before, so I think I'm a little below where I was on 12/1. Either way, I lost this week and feel better about managing the whole thing.
