Painless when you know how!!

FYI - I was charged $10.00 plus the paypal fee of 0.56c so you should get the full amount through

Right! $0.56 Those jerks! Well at least the pool should be larger this way :)

I can confirm your $10 has been received.

I don't have a PP account and have no intention of getting one. Can I do it any other way?  (I'm not interested in the prize, given the shipping hassles).

I've setup a link to pay with credit card. Prizes are vouchers so there is no shipping so international borders is no dramas.

Paid up. Now I just have to stop eating all this crap.

 

And Dazaau, Biggest Lower?

You were able to pay without a PayPal Account! - you can't expect me to spell check as well 😂

:lol:

Up 1.2kg in a week 

Lack of training and lack of usual food options are the reason. 

Going into body lock down until December. Entry or not I like the changes to my body this experiment has afforded me.

In, although I am not aiming to lose much. Getting below 90 would be nice. This is the smallest I have been in quite some time (probably since the divorce in 2005).

Willie is on board and I'm waiting for details of how to get money directly to him. He has also offer to throw in some Huma Gels for second and third.

I'll just direct deposit him as that's probably the easiest? 

Gels to make us fat :P

In, and I'll get around to the $10 too.  In for a penny, in for a pound (of weight loss I hope).  Hope I didn't screw the spreadsheet up..... I failed accounting at uni (and my dad was an accountant).

Weighed myself Monday (as it happened) and was over 80 for the first time since I got under it by taking up jogging.  6 to 10kg is what I'm looking for.  74kg is the weight all my best races were at.  At 70kg my face gets that haunt look.  Buffets me how I ever used to be 55......

I have struggled to stop my eating, it's become a crutch for me.  I could get away with it when I could run, but the walking just doesn't strip it off!  And I haven't been swimming and nearly no riding, so no intensity work.

One of the docs I ride with suggested the 5/2 fasting thing, but I just couldn't stand the 2.  So I'm gonna try the 8/16 instead, I only have to get to lunchtime, though I'm still cheating it.  So maybe you lot will keep me responsible.

I'm adding some strength work in, mostly core etc.  Gonna see if I can keep it up.

I'm just banking on the fact that I'm the most competitive (and tight) bastard I know. Now that I've got skin in the game, there's every chance I'll be spending that winner's voucher from the eating disorder ward at the Royal Brisbane.

Mine's cooking chilli con carne  at the moment. I'll just partake less of the rice. I'll do the eggs in the morning. That way there's no milk in them, and then I'll be home to cook a low carb dinner. 

And the 5 cartons of home brew in the pantry will have to wait for Xmas while I focus in on my low carb scotch. :)

 

You lot ought to just go and spend up at the Cheesecake Shop now. You ain't got a hope.

Send your entry fee via:

paypal this link: paypal.me/dazaau

to pay without a paypal account and using a credit card use this link

$10 is the entry and gets the whole prize purse in the form of a voucher from Williy, or from Wiggle for those based outside aus.

I have been around a long time and Roxxi has my address - if I run off with the money, you will be able to hunt me down. 

You have until Friday this week to put your money where your mouth is. Results based on percentage lost.  

We will see how it goes! 

(note that there is a 0.56c PayPal Fee)

Hi Everyone, reminder that entries close tomorrow. As of now the Prize Pool stands at $70.

You are right. Ex-hasbeen has stuffed up his strategy from the outset. He should be all "I'm just in it for fun, happy to give $10 to the cause, everyone has a chance of winning etc etc" - first maximize the pool of the winnings that will shortly belong to Ex.

THEN once the pool is closed you go all mental on us that we have no hope and should just hit up the cheescake shop ;)

Low carb, not no carb.

Considering most of my meals were pasta, rice or potato based, I have a lot of scope to reduce my carbs before I get into any type of dangerous level.

Unfortunately for me I started this after I already lost 3.5kg the month before and I'll bottom out at about 72 as that's where I want to be. So, that may bite me hard in the end.

It's all about the timing, I won a BL a few years ago with around 8kg loss.  Unfortunately it didn't cover the 9kg I lost the 2 months before it started
