vicky 157.6

p.s.
my 14 year old son (lord love the little geek)is FASCINATED with egypt...I would be the coolest mom if I could score something completely authentic from there...

Mel said...

Ok I really hate to admit that I'm HORRIBLE at this type of stuff but I WANT to be better so I'm going to try to use the darn elliptical machine in my basement that is drying my sweaters right now.

Melissa- 218 (OMG seriously never weighed this much ever).

Can I have a prize for getting below 200? I suppose that caramel apple I ate for breakfast is going to come back to haunt me.

(I also concur that Katy is going to woop us all, hey woman!)

queen40 said...

Well now I'm determined to beat Katy!

197.8, whoa, when did THAT happen?

Maureen

Debbie said...

148.5 I reeeeealllly want something from Egypt. Seriously, I'll send you something from the Eastern United States.

dcfullest said...

I am in! I emailed you my weight.

I am doing weight watchers and working out like a fool.

mamaholstein said...

I am in! There is no way in HELL I'm posting my weight on here. All of y'all are tiny! I think I have the best chance of winning because I have soooo much to lose. I guess we'll see. Thanks for doing this gals!! Makes my workouts much more fun!

Awkward Turtle said...

285... there; now the whole world knows

Leila said...

I wasn't going to do this, but I saw my own backside when getting in the shower this morning and wondered why that fat lady was in the bathroom with me....

228... UGH.

wowo said...

joolee said...

Sure wishing I had that chocolate chunk Special K to get started on the right foot;) I'm in, but don't want Amy Lawson to see my weight......I want her to be very afraid of the unknown.

I am curious as to the significance of the start and end dates? Does this revolve around the weight fluctuations of someone's monthly cycle?

Amy said...

Joolee--If you show me your weight, I'll show you the crack of my ass.

Are we allowed to say that word here?

Probably not. Sorry.

Heather said...

176...sad but true...more sad now that I see it in black and white. We all have to start somewhere. {sigh}

Bethy said...

162.0

Anne Nichols said...

Yay for lots of people joining!!

Anne @ 149.5 lbs.

Phil & Sami said...

158 lbs.

Renee said...

Fun!
Renee-179.5

Marie said...

This is by far the saddest of them all...except for the secret email weigh-ins.

Today I was at 299.89, but I've had a cinnamon roll since then. So let's just call it an even 300 elle bee's k?

so, Marie @ 300 lbs.

Wendi said...

Wow! You gals are POPULAR! :)

Are boys aloud to participate? Cuz John said to put him down. He weighs 201.

I weigh 140.

Happy losing to everyone!! :)

Rachel said...

oh I hate to put down my weight, but this challenge is so cool and I need some motivation..so here goes..

274.

Holly said...

Hey all y'all, you guys and yunz! (did I miss any U.S. geographical regions?) Thanks for joining the contest!

My weigh-in: 189

Please don't be ashamed to post your weight. Just starting out or close to your goal--you are all welcome here. But of course you're also welcome to use the e-mail option. We want you to feel safe, snuggly and comfortable at Diet Cake.

Holly said...

Yes, Wendi--Boys are allowed to participate! But I want a girl to win. Because boys have cooties.

Sara said...

Amy, you have special dispensation to use the A word at will. Everyone else needs to watch their language or else Holly might blush. That includes me.

Joolee, Holly's the mastermind here (see? I've been known to go along with her schemes as well, too!), but I think the dates stem from her wanting to give everyone a week to get ready for it to start and then wanting it to carry far enough into January that we don't peter out on January 2.

Wendi, what Holly said, and add, "And they smell bad."

Jeri said...

I am soooo excited about this!!! hoping this will get me back on track on the 'LOOOOOSIN TRAIN'!

Jeri @ 232.0

Kita said...

Kita
168.8

Wendi said...

Yeah, and along with the cooties and the smelliness, I'll probably just gain the weight HE loses! Have you ever noticed how sometimes that happens?! Oh well, I'm mostly in this contest just for the joy of participating in your bloggity blog. :) I seem to be somewhat rebellious when it comes to contests--but I will certainly give it a try! :)

Patty 157.5
I had a job interview this week and when I was getting ready to go I realized that I didn't have any nice pants that fit me. I need help, I can't afford to buy a whole new wardrobe.

Katie said...

I'm starting out at a plump 157. It's taken me a whole year to get down to that. Hopefully, I'll be better at ditching the bad habits. I want to go down those last 2 pounds by the end of the year.

DolphinDee417 said...

Wow, I'd love to join.

Denise 230

Katie said...

By "last 2 pounds" I just want to clarify that I mean the "last 2 pounds" before I reach my 10 pound goal. I reached it the other day, but that was just a fluctuation. Here's to a permanent 10 pounds and more!

Rachel said...

Rachel
180 (but I just had a baby 8.5 weeks ago)

Amy, if I lose 10 pounds (I know I'm dreaming) can I have half of your sticker, or at least some of the sticky residue?!

Count me in. : ) Nancy - 136.8

The Sweet Escape said...

Finally weighing in. 160. And my intent is to win a 3 layer cake from Holly and eat it all myself! :)

The Roberts' Report said...

I hate to admit this. I hate to admit this so much that I've avoided purchasing a scale until today.

But just for a really really great excuse...I did just pop out my 4th kid. So give me a break!

Oh and I've known Amy for a few years and she's seriously a runner-a-holic! She'll win!!

Rachel: 200

Ash said...

149.5

Raiye said...

In it to win it.

Andrea N said...

208

I just really want to get back to onederland!

Kristen Lewis Jorgensen said...

Just want you to know that it's very possible that I win this thing and skunk you all. I'm starting this holiday season large. But mark my words, by Dec. 31st, I will be minus a whole baby & lots of swelling. I didn't see pregnancy as an exclusion in the rules you know. You might want to revise the rules to exclude me. :)

Tanwon said...

126 the last I checked - I'm too scared to look now that Thanksgiving is over.

Kara K said...

Here it is for all of bloggerdom to see.... 204. Give me a break, I just had twins almost 2yrs ago.

EmmaLee Robinson said...

I need this. Three kids and lots of ice cream has got me to this point, 233. I just went to my personal trainer last week. I am ready to go.

miss petite america said...

jenn: one hundred sixty four point four pounds

Amy said...

Rachel 1--If you lose 10 pounds, which is totally possible to do with some good old fashioned calorie counting, I'll send you 10 stickers.

Rachel 2--Be in it to win it, girl. You'll be even sexier in no time!

Hannah said...

207- eeep! But here we go...I need something to motivate me through the holidays!

Christina said...

Hello World.
I weigh 196 pounds.
and...
I like to eat :) so here goes nothing!
Christina

Andrea said...

here goes what have I got to loose oh yeah weight haha
the scale says 143lbs yikes!

Holly said...

Welcome to everyone who's joined so far! It's going to be a fantastic contest--I can feel it in my bones.
Sara is probably asleep by now since it's after midnight in Egypt.
Those of us who aren't sleeping, should probably think about how exactly we're going to lose weight over the next 40+ days. Signing up is just the beginning. Next comes the work. Shocking, I know!

Kristen and other pregnant women--Sara and I will have to discuss what to do about you. While giving birth is very difficult, it's probably not fair to the rest of us if your pounds lost include your babies and all the good guck that comes out with them. We'll get back to you.

Cindy said...

I'll play. 168. I found your blog via Amy Lawson. I could use some accountability. Somehow I've managed to pack on 5 lbs in just the last few weeks. Yea me!
Cindy

Amanda said...

Ok after much contemplation, I am in!!!

I am a "stalker" of Amy's and I decided what the heck ola!!! (she's a genious, by the way!)

My hubby and I are having our 11th Anniversary the 27th of December and we have a wager going on who can lose the most by then! The winner gets to purchase an outfit for the other....if you catch my drift!!! LOL!!!

Anywho! Who doesn't need a little more motivation!

Amanda-153.4

Hottie Amy Lou Who

Rosie said...

Amy says we have to join to make her look good -- you know, "I'm so popular and so many people visit my blog and here they are now, at your poor pathetic blog."

Kind of like a pity date for the prom.

But darn it anyway, I could use some inspiration, so I'm signing up.

RosieRider -- 200, even. (Clydesdale class in sprint tris, and a fine representative of my polish peasant heritage!)

Amy said...
