The idea is that we get into pairs or teams and clock up exercise minutes and lbs lost by the end of the week.

So, who's in?

LisaLessLumpy · 17/09/2008 19:24

I'm in for it, most definitely

Donk · 17/09/2008 19:31

I'll have a go

SheikYerbouti · 17/09/2008 20:15

I'm a loser, but not in the weightloss sense sadly

Count me in though, I can be despondent and negative and bring everyone dooooowwwwn

LisaLessLumpy · 18/09/2008 07:09

Don't think of the weightloss to start with sheiki, think of clocking up the exercise minutes

CantSleepWontSleep · 18/09/2008 08:19

I plan on losing at least 1.5 stone in the next month. Will that make me a winner?

Excellent indeed.

The idea behind this is that the psychology of teaming up will increase your motivation as you won't want to let down your team mate.

I've just paired everyone up in order so here goes;

  1. Me and Stormy
  2. Cheekysealion and Lisa
  3. Donk and Sheiky
  4. Mummc2 and MrsMcCulloch

So hopefully we can start tomorrow if everyone is still in. Please sign in again by the end of today to confirm otherwise we can change pairings.

The challenge is to clock up the most pounds lost and the most minutes of exercise clocked per team.

So, weigh yourself, liaise with your team mate and get set, go!

Thanks you to Jahan for thinking up this idea, could just work you know!

Yes, post your start weight by tomorrow and your weight loss plan for motivation.

I'm going to post my weight and plan today as I'm going to be at work and can't really post from there.

Start weight - 11stones exactly

My plan is to stick to 1250 cals everyday and do at least 3x exercise sessions and walking everyday to boost the minutes.
Right Stormy team mate. Lets kick ass

We'll have weekly winners and an overall 6 week challenge winner.
