Biggest Loser Update

Monday, January 30,1:15 p.m.:  Biggest Loser Update:  Kirkwood’s combined loss (for the first two weeks of our competition with Webster) is 284.2 pounds (218.6 the first week; 65.6 the 2nd – it’s to be expected that most folks lost more the first week).  That’s a combined 2.38 percent (of body weight) loss.  Due to some problems with the spreadsheet, we still have not heard how Webster is doing.  Personally, I have lost 5.4 pounds (3.7 and 1.7), but my team is failing me!!  Everybody else gained this week so my loss wasn’t enough to keep us in the negative column, and in fact we are in last place…I wonder if it’s too late to change teams…
