Thanks corinnak for maintaining this thread for us! :love:
My pleasure, Lisa! :goodvibes
This was a great idea...thanks
I'm so glad you posted that! I was not able to get into it today and was afraid that maybe the thread had been deleted since it wasn't really a discussion. Seems like it was more just technical difficulties, though. Whew.
I think the thread might have been deleted. Looks like any thread that had its last post before 2/4 is gone. We might need to ask ohMom to bring it back or remember to bump it once a week -- maybe on weigh in day? Luckily we had a our handy links which still work! :thumbsup2 Maybe this post will bump it . . . IT DID! We just have to remember to bump it once a week or so.

Good luck for your race today, corinnak!
Thanks for having this thread! I know it will be so helpful for me as I start to plan out QOTD for the week I coach.
cc if you do a search for Biggest Loser you will find links to the older challenges, i.e., the fall challenge (8) or the Between the BLs challenge we did last summer. They might give you some ideas but they are big threads, too.
It has been 10 days, and there have been 10 more questions posted!!!
