Hello, and welcome to the boardgamegeek weight loss challenge!

Anyone can enter any time up until MONDAY, MARCH 30TH, 2015! The entry fee is 20gg. Please tip this list your entry fee. That's all you need to do to officially be entered. Any additional gg tipped to either this list or any entries in this list will all go to the pot at the end.

How the challenge is going to work:

BGG Weight Loss

1. On Monday the 30th, and every Monday thereafter until May 25th, everybody will submit their weight to me, via the link directly above.
2. After the final weigh-in, whoever lost at least 6% of their starting weight will split the pot evenly with anyone else who also lost the 6%. If nobody loses the 6%, then the person(s) who lost the most overall percentage of weight will win the entire pot.
3. I will NEVER post anyone's actual weight or share the information with ANYBODY. I will also post my weight on this list so everybody can see. It's only fair if I see all of your weight, you should all see mine.
4. All that really matters is your initial starting weight and your ending weight; however, in an effort to both help keep us motivated, as well as keep us honest, I would like to have everybody's weight submitted every week. Each week will be a new geeklist entry, and I have an excel sheet that will track everybody's weight loss throughout, so I will post stats every week with how we are doing, milestones hit, and overall positive thoughts and affirmations!

The goal of this challenge is to lose weight the healthy way, and not to quickly drop a ton of poundage. Please be healthy! I will ask that in the comment section, everybody please feel free to share any tips they have on healthy ways to lose weight!

The following three amazingly generous users below have offered, as motivation, to give prizes out for the top three overall winners:

WEEK 1: FIGHT!!!


Welcome to the official start of the challenge!!! Please have your weight submitted here by the end of the day today:

BGG Weight Loss

My goal is to have weekly stats provided, which will be updated in this item, each Wednesday (or Thursday).

So here is my starting weight:

207.2lbs

It's about the biggest I've been since I lost all my weight back in '05-'06. I was down to 155lbs at my smallest (which was admittedly too small), but my overall goal is to be back in the low 170's. I'm 5'10" and so the weight I'm at now, while not terrible, is enough to make me FEEL terrible. I need to lose 12.4lbs to reach the 6% goal. That's doable, but I'll have to work. I'm ready to put in the work!!

Good luck, everybody, and remember to weigh in today!!! I'll update this item on Wednesday or Thursday at the latest with our initial stats

WEEK 1 STATS!!!


So 139 people submitted their starting weight to me.

19 people or 13.67% submitted their weight to me in kg (I realize some people converted to lbs for me)

119 people or 85.61% submitted their weight to me in lbs.

1 person or .72% submitted their weight in stones.

Our total weight is 33,094lbs, or 15,011kg!!!

That is the equivalent of:
-16.5 tons
-A schoolbus filled with students
-331 lawnmowers
-4,472 copies of Twilight Imperium: Third Edition
-100,000 apples
-15,172,259 meeples meeple

Our average weight is 238.09lbs or 108kg.

Methods of weight loss

Obviously, the most common approach was exercise and diet, but the top three most popular methods are:
1. Paleo Diet
2. Weight Watchers
3. Using a calorie-counting app, such as MyFitnessPal or LoseIt

Other unique methods include:
1. 100% Soylent diet
2. Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) diets such as Atkins and Ketogenic
3. South Beach Diet

My three favorite methods that people submitted were:
1. From Gastel - Participating in a BGG Weight Loss Challenge
2. From Substandardtim - Staring at pictures of Janet Reno
3. From Pacemaker67 - Less crap in the yap

If everybody in the challenge meets their 6% goal, we will as a group have lost 1,986lbs or 901kg!!!

Remember, a huge part of losing weight is believing you can do it, and realizing that it's not going to happen overnight!

WEEK 2: LESS CRAP IN THE YAP!!


Let's stay on it! This week try to focus on portion control. Don't starve yourselves, but do you need that extra helping of (insert food stuffs here), or do you want it?

As always, please submit your weight here:

BGG Weight Loss

Stats will be updated on Wednesday or Thursday again

My week two weight:

204.9lbs

I'm down a pretty healthy 2.3lbs and am pretty happy with it. I slipped up a tiny bit yesterday, but considering it was Easter and I LOVE cheesy potatoes and pigs in a blanket, I'm calling it a win!

I'm still doing the original weight watchers points method, but also taking probiotics via the plexus system. I don't know that it's really doing anything for my actual weight loss, but my wife says it's good for my health.



WEEK 2 STATS!!


So after the stats were posted last week a few more people weighed in and so our new starting weight was:

34,165.17lbs or 15,497.08kg.

This week we had 122 of 148 people send me their weight. For the people who didn't submit a weight this week, I just entered their starting weight for a loss of 0 pounds, which isn't accurate, but it's the best I could do. All that aside we now have a total weight of:

33,885.44lbs or 15,370.20kg, which is a difference of 279.73lbs or 126.89kg!!

We have lost .82% of our starting weight or 149,173 meeples!

We had an average loss of 2.29lbs, which is outstanding!

Here's how the percentages shook out this week:

Under 1% loss - 61 people or about 50%
1-1.99% loss - 37 people or about 30%
2-2.99% loss - 17 people or about 14%
3-3.99% loss - 6 people or about 5%
Over 4% loss - 1 person or about 1%

Here are the top ten losers of the week!

1. Texjets281 - 5.81%
2. Bengkohn - 3.98%
3. Scottdawn1 - 3.65%
4. Rosborn - 3.56%
5. Bryo4 - 3.23%
6. Darkestoceans - 3.15%
7. Lifereborn - 3.03%
8. Breakaway11 - 2.97%
9. Luv2breformed - 2.86%
10. Monkeyhandz - 2.78%

That's fantastic work!!

Here are the methods that the top ten use:

1. Texjets281 - Keto/Crossfit/ECA
2. Bengkohn - Low fat, low carb, calorie counting
3. Scottdawn1 - Fast metabolism diet
4. Rosborn - Stayed on plan and walked 45 miles last week. BOOM!
5. Bryo4 - Just watching what I eat and exercising
6. Darkestoceans - Swimming laps, whole food vegan diet, treadmill
7. Lifereborn - Not snacking, no sugar, exercising (congrats on the new baby!)
8. Breakaway11 - Eating better, moving more, drinking more water
9. Luv2breformed - No sweets, exercise daily
10. Monkeyhandz - Calorie counting. Moderate exercising. Focus on sustainability and keeping healthy.

Our updated average starting weight is 230.85lbs.
Our current average weight is 228.96lbs.

Everybody is doing such a great job! Let's shed some more meeples and continue on our track of healthy living!!

WEEK 3: Move it and lose it!!


Week three is upon us! This week try to focus on exercise. Anything you can do extra that you wouldn't normally. Over in the discussion thread, some people have talked about always using the bathroom on a different floor than they're currently on. Take the stairs instead of the elevator if it's only a couple floors.

Last year I did the Couch to 5k program, and it was a great and simple way to get moving and get healthy!

As always, please submit your weight here:

BGG Weight Loss

Stats will be updated on Wednesday or Thursday again

My week three weight:

202lbs

I'm down a pretty healthy 2.9lbs and am very happy with it. I hope it keeps up, but time will tell

I'm not sure if the plexus probiotic I've been taking is really doing anything for me, but I do know that the fact that it's been warmer outside lately is without a doubt having a positive impact. I've been out biking with the wife and kids and just spending much more time outside, away from the evil kitchen.

Here's to everybody having a great week!!!

WEEK 3 STATS!!!


So this has been an incredible learning process for me as I've worked through all of this data every week. I've been having a bit of a kg/lb issue. Sometimes people don't put what unit of measurement they're weighing in with, and so I'm left to make a judgement call. For the most part I've been able to just look at what country the user in question is from and make the best guess possible based on that information.

When doing the total weight for this week I found that after converting kg people to lbs that my starting weight was off by about 1,000lbs, and there was only one person added this week, so that didn't make sense. I then realized it was me being inconsistent, and guessing some people were lb people when really they were kg, and vice versa. I sent an update for all the kg people to pretty please add kg after their number, but not everybody reads the updates, and some people just happen to forget. It's totally not a big deal and I am not trying to call anybody out, it just made for a bit of guesswork for me, and I wasn't being consistent from week to week.

What to do. I quickly realized that it didn't matter as long as I was being consistent each week. So I've finally made a separate list of all the users I know/think are kgers, and will convert accordingly. This will ensure consistency is upheld when I compile the stats every week.

So you will see a change once again in starting weight and such, but this should be the LAST time that changes, unless someone alerts me to a mistake in the following list:

1. Apotheos
2. Biku-Beku
3. Bobondi
4. Budprager
5. Captain Pedantic
6. Catalan Blade
7. Chrishall20
8. dcb411
9. Emgiees
10. Gelichor
11. Hatfielder
12. Hertzog
13. Inmarg
14. Keatus
15. Murksofus
16. Rbaker
17. Taibi
18. Tallboy

If you see your name on this list and you HAVEN'T been submitting in kg (or stones), please let me know. Likewise, if you DON'T see your name on this list and you HAVE been submitting in kg, please let me know.

In hindsight I should have just asked everybody to submit in lbs, but oh well, live and learn

SO, without any further ado, here are this week's stats!!!

With the added user this week taken into account, and my new kg-user list, here once again is our FINAL REVISED starting weight:

-35,436.06lbs or 16,073.55kg

-Our FINAL REVISED week 2 weight is:
35,146.16lbs or 15,942.05kg with a loss of 289.9lbs or 131.5kg or 154,613 meeples

-Our current weight stands at:
34,911.08lbs or 15,835.42kg with a loss of 235.08lbs or 106.63kg or 125,376 meeples.

-In total we've lost 524.98lbs or 238.13kg or 279,989 meeples!!!!

-We lost .67% of our weight this week, for a 1.48% loss overall.

-Our revised average starting weight is 237.83lbs or 107.88kg or 126,842 meeples.

-Our current average weight is 234.30lbs or 106.28kg or 124,959 meeples.

-109 of the 149 of us have lost weight of some kind so far!

-54 of us have lost at least 5lbs!

-15 of us lost 5lbs or more THIS week!

WEEK 4: Dig deep!!


Week four is here today! We're moving through this with some gusto now! This week try to focus on your mental state. It's going to be more and more difficult to see the losses you've seen the first few weeks, and it will be very easy to get frustrated and then ultimately give up. Do NOT give up! Plateaus happen. Difficulties happen. It's how you respond to those difficulties that show how dedicated to getting healthy you really are!

As always, please submit your weight here:

BGG Weight Loss

Stats will be updated on Wednesday or Thursday again

My week four weight:

199.6lbs

I'm down a pretty healthy 2.4lbs and am very happy with it. I hope it keeps up, but time will tell

Here's to everybody having a great, discourage-free week!!!

WEEK 4 STATS!!!


This week went MUCH smoother in terms of the numbers. Fewer and fewer people are weighing in each week, with this week only being 109 of the 149 of us, so that's a bit of a bummer, but is to be expected in a competition of this size as well as the nature of the competition itself.

Here is where we are this week!

-We have a new weight of 34,749.97lbs or 15,762.34kg or 18,533,202 meeples.

-We lost 161.06lbs or 73.06kg or 85,898 meeples this week!! This is a bit of a dip from the last few weeks, which is completely normal for a challenge like this. The numbers will probably get smaller as the competition goes on and people have less weight to lose. Still a fantastic job!!

-As a group so far we've lost a total of 686.09lbs or 311.21kg or 365,887 meeples!!! That's absolutely incredible!!!

-We have lost 1.94% of our total weight so far.
-68 of us have lost at least 5lbs.
-116 of the 149 of us have lost weight of some kind
-8 peoplelost 5lbs or more THIS week!
-Our new average weight is 233.2lbs, down about 4lbs from last week.

-Three new people have eclipsed the 6% milestone!! Congratulations to Scottdawn1, Theebuffalo, and JLucas85!!

-Here is a list of new people who lost 10-20lbs so far!
1. JLucas85
2. Scottdawn1
3. Toliveischrist77
4. Ferretzz
5. Ukraineboo
6. The Night Stalker
7. Lifereborn
8. Dallanc
9. M_Jeff
10. TundraThunder
11. Theebuffalo
12. Riddlebox85

-And congratulations to Texjets281 for losing more than 20lbs thus far!!! Wow!!

-Here is how the weekly percentages shook out:
Weekly Percentages
Under 1% - 115 people or 77%
1-1.99% - 24 people or 16%
2-2.99% - 7 people or 5%

1-1.99% - 24 people or 16%
2-2.99% - 22 people or 15%

10. Labrhat22 - 5.11%

Hopefully some of you are starting to feel and see the effects of your weight loss. I know for me, seeing the scale move in the right direction, no matter how much, is motivation for me to continue hitting it hard!

Everyone is doing an amazing job! Keep at it and let's get everybody to the 6% goal by the end of this!!!

WEEK 5: A Loss is a Win!!


Week five is upon us!! How is everyone doing so far? We are half way there!! Assess where you are right now. Are you on pace to hit the 6%? If not, what could you do to get yourself there? Even if you don't hit the 6%, are you feeling better? Healthier? Slow and steady wins the race, here. It's not a sprint. Huge weekly losses can also mean the potential for huge weekly gains. Make sure you're being healthy and seeing a steady trend in the right direction and be proud of that! A new you won't happen overnight.

As always, please submit your weight here:

BGG Weight Loss

Stats will be updated on Wednesday or Thursday again

My week five weight:

198.7lbs

I'm down a kind of frustrating .9lbs. I'm constantly repeating the title of this week over and over to myself to stay positive, but I really feel like I did a great job this past week and didn't have the results I expected. It's disheartening to feel like you put in the work, and don't see the scale move like it should. The good news is I'm feeling better/healthier, and that's what this is all about anyway! Also if I average a 1 pound weight loss throughout the remaining four weigh-ins, I'll hit the 6% goal! So good things are happening!

Here's to everybody having a great week!!!

WEEK 5 STATS!!!

WEEK 6: Picking Up Steam!!


Can you believe it's week six already? We are blistering through this competition!! I hope you are starting to feel the physical effects of the weight coming off! Clothes fitting better? People starting to notice? All of that is just added and continued motivation to keep going! Everybody is doing such great work. If you haven't yet, I'll encourage you to take a trip over to the discussion thread. There are the most kind and motivating people BGG has to offer on that thread really helping people along. I'm sure that it's a reason I've stayed on track.

As always, please submit your weight here:

BGG Weight Loss

Stats will be updated on Wednesday or Thursday again

My week six weight:

194.4lbs

I'm down a very surprising 4.3lbs this week!!! While the number is surprising, I finally feel that everything I've been doing is really starting to pay off. It's pretty much the exact opposite of last week. I've been watching what I've been putting in my mouth like crazy, not cheating at all, and it's paying dividends. The best part is that my overall weight loss has put me at 6.18%!!!!!!!!!!!

Amazing. Hopefully all of you will have similar stories to share at some point in the near future!

Here's to everybody having a great week!!! Keep up the great work!

WEEK 7: Rounding Third


Can you believe it's week seven already? Only two more weigh-ins after this one. Week 8 and then the final weigh-in! How close are you to hitting the goal? If you don't think it's possible, how do you feel about how much you've lost? Remember, a loss is a win. It's never too late to start losing weight. Don't worry if this challenge hasn't gone the way you thought it would go. There are endless opportunities to get it done. Sometimes it doesn't stick and sometimes it does. Just keep trying. You'll get there!!

As always, please submit your weight here:

BGG Weight Loss

Stats will be updated on Wednesday or Thursday again

My week seven weight:

194.6lbs

(Taps playing softly in the background)

I was hoping against hope that I wouldn't have a week where I gained this competition. I kind of saw the writing on the wall when I was down over four pounds last week. I knew it wasn't normal, especially after I had been weighing heavier all week and then all of a sudden it just fell off. Well, it came right back on the next day and I spent all last week trying to get as close to last week's weigh-in as I could. I almost got there. I was up .2oz this week. SO close. It's not all bad, though. I'm still down over 6%, and over 12lbs. I'm also seeing the trend, and it's all good. As long as I don't falter these last two weeks, I'll be fine!

This is what the challenge is all about. it's a challenge. It's not supposed to be easy. It's supposed to be a shock, a lifestyle change. I think for me that it's working.

Here's to everybody having a great week!!! Keep up the great work!

WEEK 7 STATS!!!

WEEK 8: OH SH*T!!!!


Can you believe we're here already??? This is the last week of the challenge! Only the final weigh-in stands between you and eternal glory that 6% microbadge and some shiny new geekgold

Everybody has done an amazing job so far. Losing over 1,000lbs is something I never thought possible when I started this challenge, and the level of enthusiasm, cooperation and motivation has exceeded even that.

Here's to a great last week. Put some extra work in this week. Get to where you need to be. The only thing stopping you is yourself.

As always, please submit your weight here:

BGG Weight Loss

Stats will be updated on Wednesday or Thursday again

My week eight weight:

193.7lbs

Back on track a bit this week. I lost .9lbs and am a bit safer into the 6% than I was last week. It's been a bit of a frustrating plateau for me these past three weeks, as I've really only lost a pound in that time. The scale hasn't really gone up, so that's a good thing. A loss is a win, right??

Here's to everybody having a great final week!!! Keep up the great work!

FINAL WEIGH-IN!!!!!!!!!!


We made it! The final weigh-in! It's all down to this. Your starting weight and this weight are the only ones that matter. Did you do enough? Did you have a great competition? If you didn't do enough, do you feel satisfied with the level of work and effort you put forth? All that matters is you're getting healthy!!

This has been such a great experience for me, personally. I never thought there would be as much interest as there was for this, nor did I expect the level of camaraderie to be so astronomically high. This really is the best website there is. Thank you to everybody involved, everybody who participated, everybody who motivated. You are the reason it was so successful!!

MAKE SURE YOU REMEMBER TO WEIGH-IN TODAY!!! WEIGHTS SUBMITTED TOMORROW WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!!!

As always, please submit your weight here:

BGG Weight Loss

Final stats will be updated tomorrow!!

My starting weight:

207.2

My ending weight:

192.5lbs

I lost 1.2lbs this week, 14.7lbs overall, for 7.09% loss!! I did it!! My goal was to lose 16lbs this competition, which would have averaged out to 2lbs a week. That didn't quite happen, but I was very close and am very happy with the results! I feel incredible. I can wear clothes that I couldn't a couple months ago. Walking around outside in just a t-shirt isn't so much of an embarrassment anymore. It's all good. I'm incredibly happy

Hopefully all of you have similar stories!!!!

FINAL STATS!!!


The results are in!!!! The final results!!!! This is the moment we've all been waiting for!!!

meepleOur final group weight is 34,114.21lbs or 15,473.96kg or 18,194,132 meeples.
