And the winner is...


With a staggering loss of nearly 7% in five weeks Scott, who took the lead in week 4, goes on to win in week 5. In a toughly fought out second place Lily on the Road edges out Nick who picks up third for his efforts. Laura who, despite moving apartment and, after spending 2 hours on elliptical machine retains fourth, Swimfan13 moves from eighth from fifth in the final week nudging out Kevin and Ms. V in a photo finish who take sixth and seventh respectively. Bringing home eighth place is everyone’s favorite New Yorker Marcy.

Congratulations to all our winners, well losers actually if you know what I mean, and to everyone else who participated. A big, nay huge, thank you to our sponsors: Marianne at Headsweats, Xy at Dirty Girl Gaiters and Julie at Wicked Fast Sports for there extremely generous prizes which will be winging their way to our winners very soon, please email me your mailing address etc. Don’t forget to post photos, comments and links back to the sponsors once you get your goodies, it’s the least we can do. A big congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated, as javamom said…“it's amazing how motivating it is to have someone waiting to hear your weight at the end of the week”, well I couldn’t agree more!

The final prize for the potty mouth goes to Marcy! Who else? Her delightful ditty of, when referring to javamom…“hopefully her GI tract will hold onto everything she eats and then unload itself the day after the contest ends :P…” really merits a mouthful of carbolic soap and so Marcy you get some extra goodies that I am sure you’ll find useful, I know you love your camera so remember; photos please!

OK and so now we move on. As noted last week I have a whole new bunch of prizes and another competition to put together, but I am going to wait a few weeks before posting the details, so don’t consider that time an excuse to go crazy on Dunkin or Crispies depending if you live in the East or West.

So once again congratulations to everyone and I look forward to looking at the photos and reading the reports from our "Worth the Weight Eight"...hey I just made that up, pretty cool huh!


  1. Awesome job everyone. Now can I go eat that Extra Large with everything Pizza? -Kidding of Course.

  6. Wow, congratulations everyone!!! We all lost a TON of weight, and I can't wait for the next one!

    Nick - I think you should go for that pizza. It will only help me beat you in the next round :) Then again, that pecan crusted chicken I just ate for lunch probably won't help matters...

  7. Dang, I'm just out of the prize places. That's what I get for eating all those darn M&M's.

  8. Congrats everyone!!! Thanks for putting this on, SLB, it was definitely motivating. :)

  9. WTG everyone.

    Is 7th place a prize winner? You have that many prizes?

    Hey, I can trash talk Marcy ANY day of the week.

  10. Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It's been several days since my last weight report. I have let SLB and others down and I am not worthy. Please forgive me and let me know my penance.

    I am the same weight as when we started which is actually pretty good considering I was down, but I did let the ball drop on this one. I'm so sorry. I expected to see a sorry picture of the losers. :P And this is actually about where I finish every race. ;)

    Thanks for putting on a nice challenge and being inspirational to so many. Now, to get myself together....

  11. Congratulations to all the winners!!! I tried so hard to out trash talk Marcy but it can't be done. Dang.

    Thanks so much for doing this for all of us! It helped me so much to dial in. I am in for the next round!
