      What if I don't want to lose 5%? My wife would kill me! Can there be a 5% weight gain resolution? Although I wouldn't start that until after Marine Corps Marathon at the end of October...

        Hmmm, what you need is a group for runners trying to gain weight. It would be fun trying to think up a name for that one...

              "I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009

                    That's excellent! Note the challenge doesn't start until Monday, so your challenge weight will be 5% off of your Monday weigh-in weight. Also, this challenge is only open to member of the Jiggly Joggers, so come on over an join! Note, I am not encouraging you to postpone any further weight-loss until Monday. You should take what you can get! Big grin

                      I have been working on gaining some weight since the end of August. It is going better than expected. Make that 3 peeps.
                        If it doesn't start until Monday I'm eating like a fool all weekend.
