Official WoW

So, since the first WoW post, people have asked how exactly it is going to work. Truth be told, I don't know—I hadn't thought that far in advance when I posted it. I think what we will do is:

::Weigh in every Wednesday. Oops I should say check your WeightOnWednesday (WoW).
::Either in a post on your own blog OR through comments on my blog say how much you are up, down, or stagnate. You DO NOT have to list your actual weight, just the difference for the week. You can also keep a running tally if you would like (total weight lost). 
::You don't have to be here from the start. It is never too late to try and get healthy!

While there are no hard and fast rules perhaps we can take Wednesday's to reflect on the week past—where we faltered and where we succeeded—then get refocused for the week ahead. Again, you can make a post about that if you would like or do it in private. Share as much or as little as you see fit.  I am hoping this provides motivation for myself and those who need it. I also would like it to provide support so I am thinking of linking to all those participating weekly in my own post. If you get a chance, head over to their blogs and give them a "Good job" or a kick in the butt, whichever the case may be.
Thanks for joining in the "fun"!

Just so you know: I lived in NJ for quite some time, and the area shock jocks were Opie and Anthony who had a thing called Whip 'Em Out Wednesday (abbreviated WOW). So everytime I see your acronym, I'm going to think you want everybody to flash you!

I'm in now. I am down a pound from last week. (the initial water weight of the baby is looooong gone so the loss isn't as rapid anymore but...) I need to lose about 2 1/2 pounds a week to get to my goal by marathon time. I think that's pretty reasonable, do you? Running kind of slows the weight loss for a bit because of my muscle build, but I think it will progress okay (as long as I stay away from the brownies!).

Just stumbled on WOW from "Knit Together..." and think this is a wonderful idea. A little accountability is just what I need. I'll post in my sidebar as a reminder to my own self! Thanks for the incentive!

I just read this post. I'm a little behind on my blog reading. I'm actually down five pounds from last Wednesday, but that's because I just started eating healthy again and I always lose rapidly at the beginning. I expect some stagnant weeks, but hopefully no gain weeks!
Are we supposed to tell you this on your blog or post on our blog with a link to your blog?
