TYVM avoid, it ended up being easier than I thought. GF was super thoughtful and considerate; we basically had no food in the house for 6 weeks where I lost the lions share.

Honestly I'm not sure about doing anymore, or even maintaining this weight. A dirty little secret is that I haven't lifted a weight in 90 days and am pretty sure I lost ~5 pounds of muscle. I'm going on a trip this weekend, but will consider it.

definitely. It would be highly forgiving set up for healthy standards not for weight. Muscle building and all, imo

not as intense as this initial thing ^_^

Super thoughtful and considerate?!?

This would be considered grounds for divorce in TN- perhaps even justifiable redneck homicide.

Maintaining is hard.

A year ago I went from my all-time high of 182lbs down to a fleeting low of 160lbs. Quickly got up to a more reasonable 165lbs which I was looking to maintain.

A year later, and I've basically gained most of it back (up to 175lbs and rising). Summertime, with all it's camping and road trips and getting married and stuff (which basically involves eating and drinking and drinking and eating, and then more eating and drinking) really takes a toll. And I don't even drink.

195, epic failure. will upload shortly after i get off work.

10/20.5 = ~49% of my goal completed. I'll lose 51% of 500$ or 255$ to the failure pool.

i guess the nice thing about this whole adventure was the fact that I'm healthy now. I was 215 when I got back from business and managed to lose 20 lbs in a little over a month and a half. it feels easy to stay on course now.

*edited* was a little over a month and a half

So the micros guys seem to think you get nothing back from the failure pool. Is that true? I remember thinking you got like a half share or something, but also now find myself thinking that their way would make more sense. Confirm deny?

10%/10% = 100% of your buy-in is returned

if you are the only successful buy-in -
(500/500) * 255 = you make 255$


currently you would get sent 755$ if this was just between you and me. ^_^

Lay off the hot dogs, IMO. Better for your health and your wallet.

I want to make sure I understand this.

If you fail you get nothing from the failure pool.

But you do get a % of your stake back equal to how much % of your bet you achieved?

so if i risk 100 at 10% but only lose 5% I" get 50 back, contribute 50 to the pool and get nothing from the pool.....right?
