    Hi Folks!

    Tis the season for new Years Resolutions (and yes, I’ve seen the earlier thread..)
    So, doors are open for 2009 New Year Resolution Fat Club.
    We’ll run it for 12 weeks again and take it from there.

    So, care to join?
    Suggest this next few days it taken up building up the membership and getting starting weights etc, with the first weigh in taking place on Friday 9th Jan.

    All you need do is drop us an e-mail at chris.sharonturner at mac dot com with the following in the subject field

    STW board name. Real name. Start weight. Target weight.
    eg – mine would read ‘marsdenman. Chris. Start 15st 10lbs. Target 14 stone’
    (weights can be stone, lbs, kg’s – whatever is easier for you, we’ll convert all to lbs)

    Then, for the weekly weigh in’s send an e-mail with your board name and weight (spreadsheet works out the losses)
    ie ‘marsdenman. 15st 8lbs’

    (current club members will note i lost bugger all this last time, had droped half a stone but thats all back….. expect to start commuting to work by bike as of this coming Monday though, that should help….i’m doing a test run this Friday….!)

    Keeping the detail in the subject field saves us opening a load of e-mails – when we set the last one up we had 40+ members. If you do need us to read something(eg to let us know you’ll be away or something) just end the subject field with ‘please read’ and put the details in the main body of the e-mail.

    Hopefully thats pretty clear!
    We did have a lot of fall off (in terms of membership, not weight…) very quickly with the last one, in part i’m sure caused by our poor set up procedure (twas all new to me this ecxel stuff….) but we responded to feedback and, the spreadsheet is there, ready to go…..

    I’ll check back here and on e-mails this next day or two but i’m off to get my second G+T now so i’ll wish you all the best, catch up with you in the new year!

    PS – current Club Members – we’ll e-mail out the end of term results this weekend.

    All The Best

    When do we eat?

    Whenever you like Mr Austin, just eat less of your preferred grub and move around more πŸ˜‰
    apparently that works wonders, not quite as good, or quick as Agent Piccolax though……

    Well, I’ve started a 12 week competition with MrFC today to see who can lose the most weight/get into the best shape, so I may as well join in this as well.
    Mind you, we’ve taken “before” photos, but I wont be posting those!!! πŸ˜‰

    Foxy – what you and MrFC do with a camera in the privacy of your home is your business πŸ˜€
    TBH I think i’ll do the same, indeed I suggest we Clubbers all do that, but only for personal use!
    (And after tonights Thai Banquet has, ahem, passed through…..) πŸ˜‰

    i would like to do this
    but
    i feel unwell once i drop under 20 stone. ;o)

    I’ve lost half a stone over Christmas, despite eating half a Christmas cake in the last couple of days. Photo evidence of how bad I look at 12 stone on the beard thread.

    I may be persuaded…

    Foxy – if you need some moral support to get out drop me a line (addy is rob AT alpinist DOT co DOT uk). I am now ensconced in Ulverston, and could use both a good excuse to get fit and someone to talk to down here.

    Life went really properly pear shaped a couple of weeks back so something to keep me occupied over the next few weeks would be a very, very good thing.

    Hey, that’s not fat! It’s my long range fuel tank.

    This forum’s getting too personal – there’s even a thread about front end flex.

    Prize awaits the best weight loss at the Big Bike Bash if they attend (and remind me)

    And just spotted that the website hasn’t been updated to the new ticket prices so you can still get them cheap until I can get my web magician to update it.

    email sent. I’m not sure 3 stone in 12 weeks is remotely possible, but we’ll see. The wife and I had a challenge set for 12 months from now but if I can do it or a large part of it within 4 months then game on πŸ™‚ Less weight to drag around the Dyfi Enduro course in May then πŸ˜€

    Takisawa2 – your thin as a rake already, well you woz last time we got out for a niteride πŸ˜†

    I’m in for what it’s worth. (email sent)
    No idea how realistic the target is just plucked what seemed like a reasonable figure based on my girth and the number of weeks. I guess time will tell.

    I’ll play. Me and the Mrs do this most years but she gives in pretty early on. Is 2.5st possible in 12 weeks?

    So, am I the only girl in then??

    Probably. I think it is because us men don’t mind calling ourselves fatties.
