CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE! 17 NOV- 25 DEC

Postby alex_bilson » Fri Nov 10, 2006 11:43 am

Welcome to the Christmas Challenge!

With Christmas and summer and SWIMMING COSTUMES edging closer, what better time to start a challenge?

This challenge will begin with your weight on FRIDAY 17TH NOVEMBER, So remember to weigh yourself next Friday, and come back to record your starting weight.

The challenge will end on 25th December, so be prepared to weigh yourself on Chrissy morning!

The winner of the challenge will be the person who has lost the greatest PERCENTAGE weight (like they do on the Biggest Loser) between these two dates.


Let's rock Lightly around the Christmas tree this year!

I guess it would be your loss divided by your start weight, times by 100 :?:

I'll join in too. (Don't have much left to lose, so my challenge will be to stay the same :wink: )

Yep that's exactly right Sarah. I replied to this before but can't see my message. Apologies if it comes out again.

Eg.

Person One starts at 68kg and loses 8kg:

8/68 = 0.1176

= 11.76% loss


Person Two starts at 126kg and loses 14 kg

14/126 = 0.111

= 11.1%


So in this case, Person One would win!


I'll write down everyone who's 'challenging' and their starting weights and work it out at the end :)

Cool 8) I just calculated my percentage loss so far and put it in my signature. It looks so much more impressive than the actual kg loss :lol:

Wow that percentage thing is surprising, thanks Alex.

10% is great Sarah! :D Really puts it into perspective doesn't it.

Hahaha Kate!!! I'm sure you would be able to work it out girl! Yes Sarah the % thing is so much more impressive than having 5kgs in there! My starting weight is 69.5kgs at the moment. The weigh in is next Friday tho hey. Fingers crossed it might be 69 by then!!! :lol: My % loss to date is 2.11%.......hahahaha! Thats made me laugh! Ok the aim will be to get it up near 5% by the end of this challenge. So I better pull my finger out.
