For the other 4 people, if you want to be counted for this week, I'll need your starting weights by tonight. And please try and weigh in the same time each Tuesday. We all know weight at the end of the day is higher...sometimes by as much as 3 pounds, so if you weigh in tonight, please do the same for all the following weeks to keep this as fair as possible.
Yeah, I really REALLY hate being all "Mom like" and drill Sargent-y, so please just get me your weight every Tuesday so I don't have to hunt you down.
Now for some fun stuff!
Someone asked (anonymously) for stats on our group. So, even though I hate anonymous comments, I'll oblige because I took a statistics in college, like 4 classes of stats and guess what? I loved it!
*There are 34 competitors
*7 male, 27 female
*The average weight is 218lbs
*There are 2 competitors from England...thanks for converting your weight from stones to pounds, cause yeah...I would have been like wha?
*I know 13 of you in real life
*One person is my very best friend in the whole wide universe
*One person is my very best aunt in the whole wide universe
*24 of you wrote a little story about your weight, like FYI, I don't normally weigh this much, or FYI I'm such and such tall, or FYI I didn't poop before I weighed myself...and I have to say, it was very endearing. I don't care how much anyone weighs, I really don't. But I do know how very hard it is exposing yourself to a stranger, or worse...someone you know in real life (hi, all 13 of you) so I really appreciate it. As a token of my affection, I'll send you my weight. HA! Yeah, right. Let's not get crazy!
OK, done with the stats for now. Just so all you little sticklers out there know, I sent my weight to Anne, of Happy Fun Pants. Or Mzz Pants as I like to call her. She's a blogger, so I thought I'd send my stats to her to keep me honest. Cause you best believe, it's ON! Don't think just because I'm hosting this here competition that I'm NOT your competition! And if I win, I'll gladly take all the loot from you suckers. In fact, I've already spent half of it. COOL YOUR JETS! I'm joking. But seriously, I'm in it to win it just like everyone else.
One more thing. If you paid by paypal you may have noticed that pesky $0.60 fee. Some of you paid it out of your pocket and some didn't. I don't care who did and who didn't, but just know that the pot isn't going to be $340 like you'd expect...more like 320ish. No, I didn't pocket $20, it's the price we pay for using paypal.
So, I think that's it for now. No wait...one more thing.
If anyone is interested in donating anything for some weekly winner prizes, please let me know. We already have some prizes that people have kindly offered up, so if you have a business, or know someone who would like to donate to our cause, or if you have something you'd like to donate as a prize, lemme know. I'll plug your business too...it's only fair.
OK, NOW I think that's it.
Good luck to you all, and to all a good night!
