    Tnx BT!:) I'm eating a tuna sandwich at the moment, for which i had to get up very early in order to make it and take to work, just to avoid strong cravings later in the day, and stuffing myself with junk. after seeing that spreadsheet i'm thinking: yeah, it was worth getting up earlier to make the sandwich... i wanna see some new numbers there soon:D

    Thanks Bluethunder, nice spreadsheet there.
    Can I add my waist measurement to the spreadsheet aswell.
    Currently I am at 39 inches (99.06cms), looking to get around 32 inches (81.28 cms)
    Looking at the spreadsheet I've got the same stats and similar goals to TheTransition.

    Also I notice you that you have me down at 220KG at the moment, my stats were in pounds, 220kg is BIG thats around 485 pounds !!! LOL

    Cardio tonight :tucool:

    Sure, I've added the waist measurement. Haha, I didn't even notice the kg. Simple copy and paste error. I've fixed it for the next chart that I'll post.

    Thanks, BlueThunder!

    Perhaps it will be a better idea to put all the weights in a single unit (either lbs or kg - doesn't really matter). This way people will see how they (and their goals) stand as opposed to the others. Also, you could save yourself the trouble of regularly posting the screenshots by uploading the spreadsheet to Google Docs and publishing it there.

    As long as everyone is consistent week after week in the units in how they report their weight I won't have a problem and there are only 2 of you guys who have kg. It won't affect the "% complete" or anything which is what the challenge is really measuring and that is what I'm using to compare everyone against each other anyway. But if you want to report in lbs, just tell me and I can switch it for you.

    Google Docs looks interesting and I may use it in the future, but it's really easy to do a screenshot and takes only a minute to do.

    I'd like to join this one. My realisitic goal will be to hit 200 by December 1st.

    I've put on a little mass lately (muscle and fat) and am sitting around 225ish.

    I'll register my first stats this coming Saturday (15th September).

    Cheers and good luck to all.

    Sure thing groomy. Consider yourself in.

    Everyone else, I need you guys to post your updated stats for this week before Monday so I can update the Challenger Chart.

    Good Luck!

    Hey everyone,

    Here is the chart for this week. Some of you didn't report and some didn't report all your measurements. Hopefully some of you guys who didn't report will report some progress next week. Well I guess that's it. Have a great week everyone!

    Well, I'm finally back from vacation. My stats stayed the same through the week (thankfully, since my diet was pretty bad, all the activity probably made up for it). I definitely needed the break and my energy in the gym yesterday was great, so I'm really motivated to start making progress now.

    Amazing how a week off gives you the energy to keep going another 3 months.

    I quit doing pushups for a week...and when I started again, I could effectively pump out 10 more. Plus, I finally got the one-arm pushup done...completely. Just because of a week off.
