Biggest Loser Fall Challenge For Losers and Maintainers! Dates: Sept. 7th to Nov. 17th(ending date subject to change based on participant consensus) I want to thank buzz5985, cclovesdis, and dvccruiser76 for all their hard work during the summer challenge I will be your hostess for this go round of the Fall challenge Your weight keeper will be Kollerbear This will be a 1 team challenge with mini-groups. We know that it is oh so very easy to get lost in a big challenge thread like this. So the idea of the mini groups is to have a small number of participants to keep tabs on one another. How each group chooses to do that is up the members. It is our hope that this will keep the drop out rate fairly low for the challenge Now for details: 1. Join the challenge send me, Octoberbride03, a PM. It is NEVER too late to join the WISH Biggest Loser Sizzlin Hot Summer Challenge. We welcome new participants at any time. We will be running the challenge as one team this summer. 2. Jump in and introduce yourself on the thread. The thread will have a coach for the week. The coach will keep things going with comments and a Question of the Day (QOTD). 3. On Sept.7th PM your initial weight to Kollerbear(Samantha). While you are welcome to post your weight in the thread, you still need to send Sue a PM or your weight will NOT be recorded. 4. If you would like to have a goal tracked for the season, please send that to Samantha as well. You can change goals as needed. Goals are tracked as pounds lost and reported as a percentage. Samatha will use your weekly weigh in to calculate how close you are to goal. Example: Suemy goal for this challenge is to lose xx pounds. 5. MaintainersA maintainer is someone whose weight is within +/- 4 pounds of their original weight. Maintainers should also PM Samantha each week. Maintainers are welcome to adjust their maintain weight as needed and are always welcome to move to the Loser team on their team challenge. 6. Please Note: Weigh-ins are on Fridays. Send your initial weigh in on Sept.7. The cut off for sending in weights is the following Monday by 5 PM EST. . Each week our Biggest Losers and our Maintainers are recognized. Results are usually posted on Monday or Tuesday. 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 Fall Challenge is to help keep you on track with your weight journey, wherever you may be in it. Reporting your weight keeps it upfront and center in your mind. You are free to share your weigh ins on the thread, but Samantha will never publish your weights herself. That is always left to you. As a past participant, I know that this this thread and the people in it are HUGE MOTIVATORS and its is an awesome way to be true to yourself and your goals for this go round.
