Good luck in Cleveland, Tweeps!

The second 3 Day of the 2012 season starts tomorrow in Cleveland! We may not have many #3DayTweeps taking part, but there are still two of them there flying our pink banner proudly. In order to make it easier to follow Jodi (@JodiWalksPink) and Lyle throughout the weekend, I’ve put together a twitter list just for them:



Also, as a reminder, you can find more Cleveland walkers and crew members by following the hashtags #the3day and #3DayTweeps as well as tracking the @ replies for @the3day!

Best wishes everyone for good weather, light bags, and no blisters!

Pinkest Loser Challenge. And the winner is…

Kacie!

:-) No use prolonging the inevitable, right?

Great job to all my Losers! I’m so proud for all of us for sticking with it, even when the will power was low and the scale numbers were rising. I’m happy to say that most of us came away with smaller numbers after this long 8-week challenge. I know that in the end we all worked hard and we all had the commitment to keep stepping on that scale week after week and sending in the numbers. As a team, we lost a total of 172.9lb. That’s huge! That’s practically an entire Loser!

So, congratulations to Kacie! Our girl pulled some great numbers in the final two weeks to win the whole challenge. Rounding out the top 5 are Betsy, Faren, Lisa, Bernadette, and AnneMarie. Great job, ladies! I’d also like to say another congrats to our weekly winners, Betsy, Lisa, Faren, Kacie, Tiffany and Shannon.

And just one last thing before I give the final round-up: this challenge not only led to some fitter tweeps, but also some fabulous donations to Komen. Kacie and Betsy alone will rack up a total of $157.40 in donations for taking first and second place this week. So thank you to the Losers for working off those pounds, and THANK YOU to our donors for cheering us on and giving big to help us celebrate. I hope you all will go give our donors some thank you’s…AnneMarie, Kate, Betsy, Kandice, Kacie, Kristen (@kscincotta), Lauri (@60milegirl), and Laura (@ldavis1800). Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Here’s the final tally of Losers. The percentage equals the total percentage of their starting body weight lost over the course of the challenge.

Kacie (@kaaaaacie) – 12.07%
Betsy (@CAColtsFan18) – 11.44%
Faren (@faren800) – 9.06%
Lisa (@LisaBrewster) – 8.67%
Bernadette (@kiss316) – 8.33%
Anne Marie (@amdesimone) – 7.73%
Kandice (@kandicesage) – 5.33%
Tiffany (@TarHeelTiff) – 3.85%
Kate (@krazykate30) – 3.39%
Maggie (@curvedyelofruit) – 2.76%
Shannon (@shanmckeon) – 2.22%
Julie (@JulieWalks) – 0.74%

You guys rock. Thanks for so much fun and encouragement these past couple of months. And finally: Happy 3-Day Season!!! See you all out there, and I can’t wait to meet a bunch of you next week in Chicago. Happy walking and crewing, my Pinkest Losers!

Love,
Julie

Pinkest Loser Update – Week 6

Sorry for the delay getting this out, Losers. My Niblette came home Saturday from nearly two weeks away, and I just couldn’t tear myself away from her sweet embrace until tonight. I hope you can forgive me! :-)

First, I once again want to say how proud I am of this group! As a whole you lost over 13lb this week, with most coming in at least a bit under last week’s weight-in. That’s some serious progress! I know that some of you may not feel it at times, but I just want you to take a look at those total loss percentages…those are some amazing transformations. Six weeks of hard work and dedication show in them, and you all should be happy in how far you’ve come. We’ve only got another two and a half weeks in the challenge, and there are quite a few contenders for the big prize!!

Now on to the Week 6 results. This week’s winner, in addition to receiving a donation in her 3Day fundraising account from Laura (@ldavis1800), will win one of the lovely gifties donated by Betsy (@CAColtsFan18).

And the winner is: Shannon! (@shanmckeon) Great job, sister! Shannon lost an impressive 1.91% of her body weight this week, bringing her total loss to 2.22%. I hope you’ll all head over to Twitter and give her a solid virtual pat on the back…she sure did earn it!

And here’s how the rest of the group stacked up:

Loser:                                           Weekly loss:     Total loss:
Julie (@JulieWalks)                  0                         0.49%
Anne Marie (@amdesimone)   0.28%                5.87%
Kate (@krazykate30)                0.34%                 2.41%
Faren (@faren800)                   0.33%                 7.35%
Betsy (@CAColtsFan18)           1.18%                  8.79%
Kandice (@kandicesage)          0.92%                  4.28%
Paula (@PaulaMarieWalks)    0                          0
Kacie (@kaaaaacie)                   0.99%                 6.81%
Lisa (@LisaBrewster)               0.22%                 6.30%
D’Lyn (@3DayMom)                 0.21%                 0
Alison (@glancz)                        0                         0
Tiffany (@TarHeelTiff)             0                         3.08%
Shannon (@shanmckeon)         1.91%                  2.22%
Maggie (@curvedyelofruit)      0                         2.76%
Bernadette (@kiss316)              0                        6.25%
Amy (@amycran)                       0                         1.06%

Ok folks. That’s it for this week. We’re heading into the home stretch, and getting closer to opening weekend of 3-Day Season! Hurray!! Let’s finish the challenge strong, and don’t forget to work in some hand muscle exercises now that 3-Day Tweep Mail season has begun. That first clump of Boston folks was quite a push, with a bit of a reprieve for Cleveland, but oh, look out! Chicago!!! Eeek! ;-) So what are you still doing here? Go! Write!!!

Happy Tuesday!
Julie

Pinkest Loser Update – Week 5

Happy Monday, Losers! Sorry for the late update, but I was taking a “me” weekend. I didn’t manage to really do anything that I had planned, including tracking my calories and taking a couple long training walks, but you know what? I needed a weekend of absolutely no obligations. I came out of the weekend refreshed and happy, ready to take on this week. Ahhhh… ;-)

It was a pretty slow Loser week. I didn’t hear from a bunch of you, but that’s ok. Let’s hop back on it this week, ok! But I am happy to say that we had a couple Losers who really kicked butt, and I’m super proud of you all. Our Pinkest Loser this week really pulled a big number, and after a week of traveling, too!

So, without further ado…Our Pinkest Loser for week 5 is: Tiffany! (@TarHeelTiff). She’s our 5th Loser in 5 weeks, and she pulled a loss of 3.08% for this week. Great job, Tiffany! Everyone head over and give her some virtual high-five’s ok? She deserves them. :-) In addition to a #lb donation from @ldavis1800, Tiffany also wins a $15 donation from @kandicesage. Congrats!!

Here’s the rest of our Loser numbers:
