    ***current information for Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge starting September 3, 2010***

    Read this post for important information and to join follow the bolded instructions.

    An updated participant list will be posted on this thread and updated periodically.

    The coaching schedule and links to Healthy Habits (formerly known as the challenge of the week or COW) will also be posted on the first page of this thread. Also, links to current results and information from our newest challenge "Whittle Inches Now" (WIN!). :goodvibes

    Welcome to the Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge -- our time to be healthy again!!!

    We've been working hard but many of us still have a ways to go. If you keep doing what you are now doing the number on the scale may not be much different at the end of the year than what it is now. But what could that scale say if you tried something different this fall?

    You can make the plan. You can make the changes. You can work to achieve your weight loss goals. And you can be part of a great group to help and support you!

    Welcome to the WISH Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge

    It is NEVER too late to join the WISH Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge. To join the challenge post on the thread or PM me and tell me which team you will be on -- loser or maintainer. Also PM your initial weight to Shannon (LuvBaloo), the weight keeper on September 3rd. Report your weight in pounds ie xxx or xxx.x.

    Our WISH Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge will run for fifteen weeks from Friday September 3, 2010 until Friday December 17, 2010.

    Starting weigh in will be September 3, 2010. First weigh in will be September 10, 2010 and weigh ins will be on Friday each week after. Each week starting September 14, our weekly Biggest Losers will be recognized. Our final results will be posted the week after December 17th.

    As usual, you do not have to watch the TV show to be a part of our challenge.

    No one is ever voted off our challenge. After three weeks of not reporting your weight to the weight keeper you are removed from the challenge but if you decide to rejoin you are welcomed with open arms.

    The purpose of the WISH Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge is to help you on your weight loss journey and keep us all on track this fall during the season of the Biggest Loser 10 shows. The challenge forces you to be accountable. Each week you will report your weight to the weight keeper (LuvBaloo). She is the only person that will know your weight. Your weight will never be published for anyone to see.

    We are not following the Biggest Loser 10 show schedule because our participants prefer to get going on their goals now. :cool2:

    Our Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge has a maintainer component again this time -- a separate team for maintainers. If you are a maintainer -- your hard work paid off :goodvibes -- you will part of the maintainers team. Maintainers still report their weight but are scored by whether you stayed within 2 pounds of your maintained weight number. If you stayed on track, you make the list of maintainers for the week and you still receive the benefit of all the support, accountability and encouragement a BL challenge provides. You can move between loser and maintainer status -- it's your choice.

    On our Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge we encourage and support each other. We celebrate those small victories and offer advice to help each other meet the weight loss challenges we face. We get to know each other. We laugh together and we cry together. WISH Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge can be your weight loss support system.

    You will get out of this challenge what you put into it. If you get serious and use this program it CAN and WILL help you lose weight. As you make choices during the day consider what your fellow losers would do. They would say no to the doughnut at the office but they would find time to get some exercise even if they are tired after a long day. Losing weight is not a 'quick fix'. It takes time, commitment, and lots of hard work. Our Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge 2010 is here to help you..

    Our Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge will be a little different from our previous challenges.

    * There will be two groups losers and maintainers this time.
    * There will one mega-thread for the entire challenge. (Don't be afraid of the big thread -- it is a little intense the first couple of weeks but then gets better and is what our participants like!)
    * We will not have team captains but will have a different 'coach' each week. They will serve as hostesses on the Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge thread, post questions of the day, acknowledge posters, post mini-challenges and offer encouragement. Some coaches may serve for a second week later in the challenge.
    * LuvBaloo will serve again as the weight keeper. Thank you, LuvBaloo, for doing this again!
    * jenanderson will be our Healthy Habits coach (formerly known as the challenge of the week or COW) coach. Weekly challenges will encourage us to develop healthy habits for our bodies and souls. Thank you, jenanderson, for being our Healthy Habits coach!
    * Connie96 will be our Whittle Inches Now coach (WIN). This is our newest component of the WISH Biggest Loser Challenge and another way to measure your success -- by tracking inches lost! Thank you, Connie96, for being our WIN keeper!
    * donac and I are hostessing the challenge. We keep things organized and moving along. Thank you, donac, for co-hostessing this challenge!
    * There is also a goal component of the challenge. You can set a goal, i.e. lose 20 pounds, and LuvBaloo will keep track of how close you are to your goal each week. To see an example of the goals results post click here. http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=36437607&postcount=995

    We will laugh together, we will cry together and a few of us will finish the challenge together, hopefully weighing less than when we started.


    Here is our clippie for the fall challenge. This is the final version so feel free to start using it!


    [​IMG]

    We are recycling last years clippie and the date will be changed. A big thank you to corinnak for designing our clippie for us!

    To put the clippie in your signature, do the following:
    1. Right click on the clippie above. Then click on Properties at the bottom of the list. You will see something that looks like this behind address http://i16.photobucket.com /albums/ b16/ lisah0711/ BL-Fall-20101.gif I've bolded it here and put in some extra spaces so it will show in the post. Copy that phrase -- don't bold it or have the spaces. (To copy highlight the phrase and do CTRL (control key) C)
    2. Click on User CP in the upper left hand corner of the screen -- it's in the blue bar
    3. Click on Edit Signature in Settings & Options on the left
    4. Paste the phrase you copied. Add [​IMG] to the end.
    5. Save your signature.

    Don't worry if it takes a couple of tries and let us know if you have any problems. If someone has an easier way to explain how to do this please let me know.

    Let's review the components of our WISH Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge.

    The weight report
    * Your weight report is due each Friday.
    * You PM your report to LuvBaloo.
    * Report your weigh in pounds ie xxx or xxx.x.
    * Carefully review your weight before you send your message to Shannon. PLEASE make sure the weight is typed correctly. Is that 166 or 156? Are you at 174 or 177? Misspelling is forgivable, typos happen, let's just make sure they don't happen with those numbers in your weight.
    * Weight reports are required to remain in the challenge. After three weeks of no reports you are dropped from the challenge. After being dropped from the challenge you may return by reporting your current weight. We will welcome you back any time you want to rejoin if your drop out for a few weeks.
    * You can chatter on our thread even if you don't do the weigh ins.


    Healthy Habits (formerly known as challenge of the week)
    * jenanderson will post the challenge of the week on our BL thread.
    * Not every week will involve a challenge.
    * Participation in the weekly challenge is optional. You can pick and choose what part of the challenge that you want to do.
    * Each challenge will clearly state a beginning date, ending date
    * Each challenge will include tasks to perform and point values awarded for accomplishing the tasks.
    * It is helpful to print the challenge tasks to refer to throughout the week or use the handy link on the first page of the thread


    Whittle Inches Now! (WIN!)
    * Connie96 is our coach for this component.
    * There will be several measurements used in this challenge -- we're still deciding which ones
    * Every three weeks you will take your measurements and PM them to Connie96
    * Your measurements are never posted for anyone to see
    * This is a brand new component to our challenges so look for more info


    WISH Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge 2010
    * One mega-thread will run for the entire challenge.
    * Participation on the thread is optional.
    * Each week a new 'coach' will serve as hostess on our WISH Biggest Loser 10 Fall Challenge. Their duties include posting questions of the day, acknowledging posters, posting mini-challenges and offering encouragement. Some coaches may serve for a second week later in the challenge. If you are interested in serving as a coach please PM or email me. We strive to have a different coach each week so that means lots of volunteers!


    So that's the scoop losers and maintainers. To join our challenge follow the instructions given above. If you have any questions PM me or donac.

    Good luck and have a healthy day!

    You gals just don't like giving me a break, do you? :p I have to admit I was hoping this challenge wouldn't start for a few more weeks closer to the fall show premiere. But alas, you are here, so I guess I am, too. ;)

    I mostly need the accountability. I don't have any major weight loss goals this round. My goal is to continue losing slowly, then to not gain TOO much between Thanksgiving and Christmas so I end back up close to where I am currently. :crazy: I guess for this challenge I'm a weekly loser, although I'm hoping to just overall maintain considering the upcoming holidays. Of course if I make it through the end of the year LESS than I am now, that would just be delicious. :sunny:

    I do have fitness goals: getting back on the treadmill regularly (I got lazy this summer), and doing the www.twohundredsitups.com plan with my son (we'll do each week twice though and do it over a period of 12 weeks)

    I am really looking forward to being the Healthy Habits coach! :thumbsup2 I learned a lot doing it this past summer and hope to make it even better for everyone who wants to participate! :goodvibes

    Lisa - I will send you a PM about coaching. I think I am up to it again this fall.

    Can't wait for the new challenge to begin and to watch all the success that happens here!

    I'm in too:thumbsup2

    Will not be coaching this time around though due to work. Just have no idea how its going to be with Christmas coming up. Maybe I'll get lucky with a new job. But I am definitely in for the Losers team.
