Let me say how much I love my ticker - having a graphic representation of the "journey" is fun AND like today when I am hung up on not yet getting into the 170s I look at my ticker calculation and find I'm 40% toward my goal! (I would NEVER have done that math). Small goals and reasons to be happy! WWhooooo-hoooooo!

I've seen several people who list how much they've lost per week and/or month - how is that done? As part of the signature in Your Control Panel? I would love to be able to show that stat when I get started - it would be really motivating!

Yep, they just modify their signature block each week or month and add their new loss.  Great to see your enthusiasm -- it will serve you well!

Thanks, Brian :)

As to the enthusiasm... well, I'm getting really impatient to start. Once I've made up my mind to do something, I don't like sitting around and waiting to get going. Although I'm trying to tell myself that I'm not doing that now - I'm working an insane amount of overtime between now and Christmas in order to earn the initial consult fee and the first 8 weeks of the program. I've put together a budget in Excel that takes into account my regular expenses, income, and the goal for savings each pay period - and I've incorporated formulas to automatically adjust those figures and how much more I need to earn in order to save toward the goal for the pay period, every time I work another block of overtime. That's really motivating to me, to see the numbers change every day. But I still can't wait until the bank account shows what the Excel file tells me is possible!

Brian, any chance you could add a textbox sometime on the ticker page to allow us to edit our signatures right on there.  It's not that big of a deal, but it would be more convenient rather than having to visit the ticker page, and then edit the signature to add the "monthly breakdown".  Just a thought.

This is an excellent suggestion.  Sorry for the delay in responding to it -- I didn't see it until Doughboy posted his new post (bringing the topic back into the 'New Posts' list).  Somehow I missed yours before.

I'm adding this to the to-do list.  Since that script is modifying the signature block anyway, it should be pretty easy.

Thanks for the suggestion!
