2009 STW Fat Club – Doors are open!
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.

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.Posted 9 years agoxherbivorexSubscriber
gonna take part in this i think. i need to get weighed first; not entirely sure what i weigh at the moment (somewhere in the region of 14-15st i think), but i need/want to lose probably 3-4 stone… yikes. not gonna be easy. but i’m determined to do it.Posted 9 years ago
i’ll send the email in a day or two.SurfrMember
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 🙂 Less weight to drag around the Dyfi Enduro course in May then 😀Posted 9 years ago
