Thinning the Herd
Journey to Lose
As you can imagine, many of the top losers were on the Apathy Avengers! Congratulations for Carol Moore and Kendyl Magnuson, our top male and female loser!
There have been some changes to the top three (3) teams this week. Great work Apathy Avengers!, Shrinky Dinks and Transformers! The results are somewhat skewed as we had a lot of people that did not weigh in this week. Please…make sure you weigh-in each week, as the accountability does make a difference and you will revert to your heaviest/starting weight if you do not weigh in. Due to the large percentage of people who did not weigh in, we have reverted in our overall weight loss (we can’t count you if you don’t weigh in!) We have now lost a combined total of 209.9 pounds!
