She is up to 14.58% and also seems to be the only one who has been consistently moving in the polls. Nancy has stayed between 16.7 and 17% for a while, and Erin Jane has sticking in the 15.75%, give or take a couple tenths. My guestimate is that we can definitely get Lisa in Erin Jane range with the same effort we have made the last few weeks, but are running out of time to pass Nancy unless we can get more people to participate.

With only a couple of weeks of the challenge remaining, Lisa has 14.6% of the votes, Erin Jane has 15.9%, and Nancy has 16.74%. From the Challenge web site: "Odds of winning depend on measurable fitness success of the participant, public vote, and judge’s decision" so it's not all about the votes, but I'm sure they are a big part of it.

Let's get Lisa up in the rankings!!!

Lisa has moved to 14.76% of the votes! Erin Jane is still working and has increased to 16.06%, and Nancy is at 16.83%. It's going to be a tight race! If everyone helps Lisa, she can get closer to first and possibly overtake Nancy in the voting!

We should be cautious of commenting on Facebook about voting twice and from multiple locations since Steele is connected to Lisa's page, and excess voting could disqualify her. Sad

KEEP IT UP, LISA!!!!

Erin Jane has put on a surge too and is up to 16.2% so we need to do some work.

Now is the time to kick up the voting, Tapirs!! Blast your friends with an email about Lisa and beg for daily votes!

Here is an update from Lisa from today:

So far I have lost almost 30lbs since July 20th and 35 inches. I have not done any shopping yet, but guess I have dropped at least 2 dress sizes. I signed up for a ½ Marathon on the day after the official challenge ends and have logged over 150 miles training for that. I think that is more miles in 3 months than all of last year. Most of my work outs with my amazing Coach Wendy have been at 5 am and I am not a morning person so that has been a challenge in itself. More importantly I embraced this experience with the attitude of making it work for my life long term. This is not 90 days and done for me – this has been wonderful 90 day kick-start opportunity. Some of the other challengers have really focused on the 90 day window, doing two-a-days, giving up foods, alcohol, etc. I have not done all those things, but learned how to balance working out with work and my daughter and eating better. I started out eating vegetarian in July and have been mostly vegan for the past 45 days. Not sure if the vegan thing will stick, but I think the vegetarian will.

Lisa is over 15%, but Erin Jane and Nancy are cranking it up, too!

Lisa is under 15%, and Erin Jane and Nancy are surging toward 18%, but it's still good to finish the race strong regardless of place.

Looks like Mary won (not one of the top 3 vote getters). Sounds like Lisa made some good fitness gains, and I hope our support helped.
