Biggest Loser Challenge

Okay, signups have started for the next round of the Biggest Loser Challenge. Several of you were interested in forming a team.

The points challenge signup is HERE.
All you need to do is go to the thread and say that you want to be on the scrapbooking team. The team will be created if there are enough people or you may be joined with another team if your group is small.

There is also a individual weight challenge that you can do as well. Signups are HERE.

The new rules are not up yet, but there will only be slight changes (if any) and you can read the current rules HERE.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Hope to see a bunch of you over there.

Note: The points challenge is focused on healthy habits vs losing weight. It is great motivation and gives you a team to be accountable too. You can do this challenge while pregnant. Points are earned by staying on YOUR food plan, drinking water, exercising (at your level) and more. The weight challenge is an individual challenge where you report your weight each week. This challenge does not require daily checkins (where the points does). I find that I enjoy doing both challenges since the points gives me the daily accountability and a team and the weight reminds me that my overall goal is to drop the pounds!

Wow, I didn't know those could be done while preggo. Seems like an unfair advantage because weight loss is pretty much guaranteed. Good luck to everyone who participates!

The point challenge does not track weight at all and that is the one that preggo's can do! Sorry if that is confusing.

Girls, I'm soooo IN! I hope we'll get enough of y'all to sign up!

I really do so much better with support and encouragement. I've done the points challenge twice and I'm down 12 pounds. So come on ladies, join in! Smile

Ladies, I would like to say I want to do this. I know I am preggo, and I am having to watch my sugar, so I am sort of on a diet. I drink tons of water, but it's the exercise part that I am having a hard time with. I don't have any energy, I live on a dirt road, and I just don't have it in me. Maybe I should just wait until he's out, and things are back to normal....I don't know yet.

Sadie, join anyways! If we can encourage you and give you support that would help -- join! It's not about being points obsessed ... it's about having help to accomplish your goals!

It looks like you will have a full team Smile

Sorry I can't join you ladies. You'll see me over there a lot though. I'm on the Mixed Nuts team and the weight challenge.

Oh, and one of you will need to be the team leader.

I don't mind doing that since I've done the challenges before.

There's still one more day to sign up if anyone wants to join!

I'll go post a tracking thread for us. No chatting until everyone has claimed a spot (for those who feel clueless, you'll catch on!).
