Hey Guys,

Thanks for all your input! It seems like the majority likes the points plan better, but then runawayxgirlx brought up a great point, why not have two winners every month? So we will have an overall weight loss winner(by percentage of body weight lost), and a points winner.

So here's how points will work:
.5 point for each day you follow your eating plan (whether it be calories or a meal plan)
.5 point for each day you exercise
1 point for each pound lose (up to 2 points a week)

I decided to keep points only counting for the first two pounds each week since we are having a winner for just weight loss as well.

Each week you will post your weigh-in along with your point totals for the week. All weigh in posts will be friends only, but as for personal posts I don't mind if they're not. Whichever you prefer for those.

Let me know if you have any other concerns, and I hope you're all having a wonderful holiday! Can't wait to start on the first!

I left a comment on an earlier entry, but this seems to make sense. For those who stay on plan, exercise, and lose weight, and there is a tie, how will the winner be decided? Random drawing?

I would say if there's a tie they both count as winners, since they both put in the work :]

Are we all going to have the same weigh in day? I know I weigh on Mondays but I bet it's going to vary a bit w/in the group. Which leads me to asking when our first official weigh in will be? :)
Otherwise, it all sounds great!

For weigh in day, I vote Friday. Then you have the weekend ahead to splurge a little if you want to and catch up for the next weigh in.

But, Mondays would keep me a lot more accountable on weekends I'm sure.

For the first month I chose to do weigh-ins on Thursday so it's weekly after January 1st. At the end of the month I'll see how well this worked out, and if people don't seem to like it we can vote on a permanent weigh in day for the next month.
