Amy W: I stopped caring. I stopped caring about the scale, about a number, and about every little thing I put in my mouth. If I'm hungry I eat, sensibly - mostly gluten free with lots of protein and veggies - , until I'm comfortably full and then I stop. If I want a cookie, I'll eat a cookie and don't let myself feel bad about it afterwards. Since I stopped stressing so much about numbers and food, the weight has just been coming off. Being happy apparently does wonders for your waistline. [11/30]

Eric W: Congrats to Lori F, Amy W, AndreAnna M, and Tricia B for kicking our butts! Care to share your secrets? [11/30]

Eric W: 13.8% toward my goal. Lovely. *sigh* [11/30]

Michael W: Bad here too. I'll add my weight..... gain. [11/29]

Eric W: This fatbet, miserable failure that it's ben for me, is almost over. If you'd like to join me for another (longer) one, go to http://bit.ly/d1v8LC. It ends March 15 (the Ides of March). [11/29]

John M: Oh, this isn't a weight GAINING contest? I had it backwards. Okay...lemme get to work on turning this thing around. [11/23]

Eric W: I suck. [11/22]

Lori F: Hey Eric, it's been all about the calorie restriction for me, increasing protein and reducing carbs. I'm starting to add in exercise now, too. [11/12]

Eric W: What happened, Amy W? [10/19]

Eric W: Hey, Lori F, what's your secret? [10/14]

Eric W: I have no idea what the hell is going on. Ugh. [10/01]

Amy W: Down 22lbs in one month! [10/01]

Michael W: Y'all better tighten up. I have. :) [09/24]

Eric W: Amy W must be doing something right. Wowsers. [09/23]

Michael W: Anthony, you can't. [09/23]

Anthony C: How do I get the pull-down menu to list tomorrow's date? [09/22]

Michael W: Been eating a lot, but still slowly losing. Guess I'm doing something right. Need more veggies though. [09/10]

Michael W: Yay! I'm back even! haha I guess the few beers helped me retain water this weekend. Last night's soccer practice had me sweating. [09/08]

Eric W: I've started another fatbet to run along with this one but last longer. It goes until 03/15/11. Join here: http://bit.ly/d1v8LC. Watch here: http://bit.ly/99g7PN. [09/07]

Eric W: I'd speculate that an occasional fast (bread and water, not complete) might be good for resetting your hungry/full signaling. I'm thinkin gof writing a blog post about applying Catholic Lent rules to weight loss. Starting with a day of fasting, having meatless Fridays, and emphasizing moderation the rest of time might work well. [09/07]

Michael W: Eric, I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one that went up. :) [09/07]

jess g: hey michael... be careful with fasting. it tricks your body into thinking it is starving and shuts your metabolism down! [09/07]

jess g: hey michael... be careful with fasting. it tricks your body into thinking it is starving and shuts your metabolism down! [09/07]

Eric W: I went to a wedding and an amusement park this weekend, so I'm not surprised my weight bounced back up. I also haven't run since Thursday. [09/07]

Michael W: Intermittent Fasting. [09/03]

Eric W: What's IFast? [09/03]

Michael W: I kinda started an IFast yesterday at 2PM, right after lunch. I'll be doing so till 2PM today or if I can, I may extend it a little longer. Till dinner maybe. Slowly but surely! [09/03]

jess g: oh man, i drank too much wine last night AND im going away this weekend. grrr.... [09/02]

Michael W: Only down a pound this morning. I think I'm at my true weight, so it's all going to be pretty slow for myself. Been IFing off and on for the last couple months. [09/02]

Amy W: Water weight loss - Already down 5.5lbs lol. Now I'm probably at my "real weight", so we'll see how the next 89 days go because I won't be seeing any more 5+ plus overnight weight losses after this. Hope everyone is doing well and eating healthier!! :) [09/02]

John M: First weigh-in. Down two pounds. You losers are going DOWN!!! [09/02]

Michael W: If any of you use IRC - irc.gamersvault.net and join channel #fatbet :) [09/01]

Michael W: My best friend Frank, I just invited him on. He's frankc420 on Twitter. [09/01]

Frank C: Best of luck to everyone, but I'm going to win this bet. [09/01]

Eric W: BTW, Michael has a good idea. You can find me on Twitter as FunkyDung. [09/01]

Eric W: We could define loss as having the lowest % of goal reached. [09/01]

Michael W: So anyone that doesn't make their weight foal are considered the losers, right? Maybe I should've not shot for so much weight lose. haha Eh, no worries, I'll make it. :) [09/01]

Michael W: Hello all. Fat boy here (mwhities@twitter) (follow me if you aren't) and ready to rock it. [09/01]

Eric W: Since there's such a large and diverse group, perhaps we should wager some kind of embarrassing act that the loser(s) can perform in front of a webcam. Thoughts? [09/01]

AndreAnna M: Did we decide on a wager? [09/01]

Eric W: Suggest that to the site owners, Jess. That'd be a welcome addition. Social media tools for Twitter, etc. would be cool, too. :) [09/01]

jess g: i wish we could have avatars on here... [09/01]

jess g: bring it!! im ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [09/01]

Amy W: I will take that SISSY dowwwwwwn!!!! [08/31]

AndreAnna M: Ok, so my sister (Amy W) and husband (Mike M) are both on here trying to lose 30 lbs. The next three months will entail much name calling round these parts I predict. [08/31]

Eric W: Tricia, it'll be hard to put stuff off when you see your weight dropping (or not) in comparison to others and the provided goal line. :) [08/31]

Tricia B: My 1 concern is that 3 months seems like a long enough time to put stuff off... I'm going to need some taunting! [08/31]

Wendy A: I would like to lose 8 lbs... [08/31]

Eric W: Here's an idea for a wager: http://fatbet.net/f185orStache.aspx ;) [08/31]

Amy W: Looking forward to the challenge. Good luck everyone! [08/31]

AndreAnna M: Woot! I'm actually in TWO fatbets now - nothing like humiliation and rewards all over the place!! I like the idea of the bad sweater - that IS awesome. [08/31]

Anthony C: Loser wears an ugly sweater to a non-ugly-sweater holiday party. [08/31]

Tricia B: I am very excited to hear folks' ideas for rewards/punishments. I was just telling someone I'm so much more motivated by terror than treats. [08/31]

Eric W: I'm planning on weighing is as often as I can remember, but let's shoot for at least weekly as a group. Sound good? [08/31]

Anthony C: In every way, this is sure to be better than fantasy football. [08/31]

Tricia B: Sigh. Cannot figure out how to edit my end goal. That should be 14, not 4 lbs. [08/31]

Eric W: Welcome to all. I hope we can encourage each other (or nag/tease, as needed/desired) so we all reach our goals. :) [08/31]
