Why you should create a ticker and add it to your signature

If you don't know what a ticker is, read this post first.

When you create and maintain your ticker it serves several useful purposes:

1. It gives you a visual indicator of your progress.  I like to see my progress.

2. It gives everyone else a picture of your weight loss situation.  When someone asks a question, the answer for someone who weighs 150 pounds with 20 to lose may be completely different than the answer for someone who weighs 310 pounds with 180 to lose.  Your ticker helps us know your situation better.

3. It provides a historical record of your weight loss.  Every time you update your ticker the change ends up in the historical log for your ticker.  I haven't had a chance to write it yet, but at some point I'll give you guys the ability to look at the log and maybe even see a graph.  Many/most of you probably already keep some sort of log, but this may save you from doing that double data-entry, and also opens the door for some analysis tools down the road that you may find useful.  In at least one case so far I've been able to look at someone's ticker log to help them get a better picture of their weight loss pattern.

To create your ticker and add it to your signature, just go to your control panel and click on the link in the red notice.  I tried to make it painless.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good points Brian. I look forward to updating mine ... well not with the gains. :laugh:

But seriously, it does give me incentive knowing in two more days I get to make it drop some more.

I'm loving it so far. Except for the doozy of a headache I had on my first and second day, I've felt great. I haven't craved anything or even been hungry. I had a big loss after three days so that helps a girl stay on track. I love these forums....you guys are very inspirational and it's great to have other's to compare and consult with!
