Contest Day 8: It's weigh-in time! Also, I'm conceited.

Post your weight in the comments section of this post (please). If you're an e-mailing contestant, send us an e-mail instead. 


Don't run away! Don't hide! We won't laugh. We won't point. Even if we get carried away and do some pointing, you won't see us because we aren't with you, so you'll never know!

Also be sure to read the previous post. It's important. (Do I sound conceited? Is it conceited if I think everyone should read what I write? Do conceited people even know if they are conceited? If I Google "conceited," will it bring me to this post? Do only conceited people Google "conceited"? Am I even spelling "conceited" correctly? You know how when you say or write a word over and over it starts to look fake? "Conceited" is starting to look like a made-up word.)

165.2... down 1.6. So not a monumental loss, but it's going in the right direction. :)

195.8..My scale likes .8's.
Down 2 YAY! I'm winning!

queen40 said...

Wait! I'm down 3!! YAY! I'm winning-er!

Jess B said...

up 1.5. ugh.

I should have a weightloss info blog post up later this afternoon...not that anyone wants my advice since I obviously didn't LOSE anything.

Stefanie said...

172 - down 2 pounds. Just think of the possibilities if I actually exercised more than once this week :)

Ash said...

149 down .5

Christina said...

down 3 lbs!

Tiffany said...

167.5 - Down 2 and a little.

I'm a little worried this will be my last loss for a couple of weeks...my dr. started me on steroids today...grrr...I've heard nothing but awful things about weight gain while on them.

wowo said...

120! Down 1!

dcfullest said...

I am down 2! I worked my ass off to get it too!

Ray, Brandi and Our Girls said...

219 - Down 1.

Debbie said...

Patty said...

Nancy - Down 1.6 pounds. Current weight - 135.2. Can't wait to get under 130.

Amy said...

I believe that I'm up .2

Yay! I'm winning.

Just kidding.

And don't forget everyone, it's a % not straight pounds.

My sister's gonna win this.

Anne Nichols said...

148.2 - down 1.3

Woot!

The Roberts' Report said...

the same 200...dam!

Renee said...

My scale is possessed and could not decide what I weighed this morning. Or it knew I would get mad and throw it out the window so it thought the error sign would be a safer choice. I will weigh in at WW tomorrow morning and get a real number! And maybe fresh batteries for my poor abused scale.

joolee said...

down 1.5, though it doesn't seem possible with all the Christmas parties this past week. I'm telling you, extra-curricular nighttime activity IS the only way to exercise;)

Phil & Sami said...

Joolee-seriously its the funnest way to burn extra calorie;)

On to the important stuff. I am so gonna do better this upcoming week. I haven't gained yea! But haven't lost any weight either:(

Wendi said...

John still weighs the same, but he said he was kidding about being in a girls contest--plus, you said he had cooties and smelled bad. ;)

I actually weighed 140.4 on day 1 and now I weigh 141.6--so I'm up 1.2 pounds. But, really, that's a relief if you consider that I've been eating way more junk food than normal. Yes, I know. I'm rebelling against myself. I'm crazy that way--literally!

However, I must tell you that I'm very pleased that I've started walking so much more--and it's mostly because of you girls at Diet Cake. Thanks! :)

Awkward Turtle said...

282 Down 3! Woo Hoo!

Bethy said...

161.2 - which means I am down .8 pounds. Certainly not the winner, but I will take it! Oh, to be in the 150s....dreamy....

Holly said...

Hey you guys! Great response so far. Good job, losers. And you non-losers? Stop putting yourselves down. Seriously. When you start kicking puppies and tripping toddlers in your spare time--then you can put yourselves down.
I haven't weighed in yet. I will though. Very soon. Honest.

DolphinDee417 said...

229 Down One!

mrscampbell said...

I still weigh 157.5 :-( but I started my period yesterday. Maybe that accounts for something....I'm bloated.....or it could be the frosting I ate last night while I was making cupcakes for my sons class? You never know?!?

Nicholle said...

149. yuck

Gina Lee said...

184 -> Down 2.5!!!

Katie said...

154!! Down 3 pounds.

I've been eating slower, so I don't jam it all in before I realize I don't need anymore. I'm also kicking booty on my 100 Days of No Fast Food. Woo hoo! Here's to 3 more this next week! Also, I'm particularly excited because I have weighed 154 for 2 days, which I hope means it isn't just fluctuation!!! Yippee!!!!

Heather said...

173 today. Yippee

Kara K said...

202.5 today. Down 1.5, I do believe. I didn't believe the scale since my exercise has been nil and my period has be raging, but it was the same both times I stepped on it, so I'm gonna take it.

Hannah said...

I maintained- which is faaaabulous because I haven't been able to exercise yet and I was worried it was going to be biting me even though I am eating cleaner etc. Woohoo.

Rachel said...

Lost 1 pound, but I'll probably gain it back tomorrow - there's a family get together!

K and/or K said...

Down 1 lonely pound, but I did not work out and I ate tons of cookies(oops!--they show up in my mailbox and scream my name!) so I guess that isn't too shabby.

Marie said...

297.88 lbs. Yahoo!

And that is fully clothed and in the middle of the day (post-pizza, 2 cookies, lots of water, an apple, and honey nut cherrios).

And without a stitch of extra exercise! Yahoo!

Holly said...

I am 187, 2 lbs down. I am shocked, really. Shocked in a happy way. :)

Thanks to everyone who's weighed in so far. If I don't hear from all 60-something of our contestants by tomorrow morning I'm forming a posse and tracking them down. Yee haw!

Sara will only be weighing in today if she can get scale and computer access, which is unlikely, because of where she is. I think she'll probably tell all of you where she was upon her return. Since this trip involved her husband's work, I don't think she was supposed to say beforehand. Or she forgot. Or she's just secretive.
Anyway, suffice it to say that modern conveniences are not in abundance where she is.

Narcisa said...

171 lbs. Down 1 lb

Sun Productions said...

74 kilos...my scale w/real weight measurement doesn't work. I think that's 162.8 in real life. Chantelle

Rachel said...

gained 1.2 stinkin' pounds...BUT, I expect a loss next week because my witch of an Aunt will be gone. (what kind of a name is Flo anyways?)

Leila said...

225. Down 3 pounds! Yippee!!!

Mississippi Family said...

I am not a loser! I'm in the same boat with Rachel. I'm up to 214.4. Yuck!

majcross said...

I have to weigh in on Saturday mornings because I work out of town on Friday. But this does keep me motivated on Friday nights not to blow it.

196

ALW

Cindy said...

167, down 1 lb.

Renee said...

180 today which I think is up .5 but I am not going to freak after the number of Christmas parties I had this week. Next will be better! Way to everyone who lost!

Running in Alabama said...

ok, ok, I missed friday...we have all been sick and dragging myself to my computer seemed a bit like I might have an addiction...I am at 154.2 but am sure that it is dehydration so no one laugh when I spike back up next week...did you guys know that you could lose 3 1/2 pounds if you just throw up for 3 days?!?!? not that I recommend it (even if I do feel like I had and ab workout)...

Running in Alabama said...

p.s. am I still in?? should have asked cause I am so late...will understand if not :)

Holly said...

Yes--You're still in. We're being very forgiving about the weigh-in deadline this week, especially for people who've been throwing up for three days. :)

Also, every participant gets one free pass week on the weigh in. That way those who are traveling (or barfing) and don't have a chance to weigh in don't have to drop out.

You don't have to use this week as your free one, though--I'm counting your weigh in.

I weighed. I'm up 2 lbs. I don't want to talk about it. Blaming period.
