I've dropped 12-16kgs over 4 months - on 3 different occasions now, so I know it works - I just need to stick to it instead of coming up with excuses and eating because I'm freezing. :|

How comes you attain weight of over 100 kgs
At 59, I have had enough time to collect some weight over the years and no concerted effort to exercise.
Being tall, it was more of a beer-belly and spare tyre.

Trying to gauge interest for this idea.

Would everyone taking part in this thread be interested in submitting their weekly results to a custom webapp, and then an image of a table with everyones stats will be automatically updated on @Sinbad's first post?
So high level outline:
1. Go to a non-mybb website
2. 1st form for new entries to take part in this thread(Filled in once only): Enter mybb username, starting weight, height, etc, etc
3. Then on weekly or any interval you want, enter the following on a secondary form: mybb username, current weight, maybe date
4. An image with all the entrants details will be updated with their current weights and progress which will be posted to the first thread.

Pros: Easier/no management for Sinbad. Possibly easier management for users so they input their required information.

Cons: Takes away community engagement in this thread directly. But I suppose people could still make posts here and on the website.

I could build something like this over one night in a weekend, but don't want to build something no one wants to use. There are probably also google forms and stuff that could be used, but i havent worked much with them and too lazy to research. I know my way will probably work well, barring no significant changes to some old python packages.

Let me know what you all think about this?
