    Default Biggest Loser Challenge

    Hi ladies! It is time for another Biggest Loser Challenge here on the site. I was wondering if any of you would like to form a new team for our board. We need a minimum of six ladies to be a team. The challenge isn't about losing weight for all some it is to be healthy.

    So for those getting ready to start a round of IVF, just getting pg, just had their IVF miracle or for those on hold, in limbo, moving on etc feel free to join.

    If we can get enough people we can have a great team. I'll copy the rules so everyone has an idea. Also if your interested share your ideas for a team name.

    The Rules:

    The points are tallied daily and do not carry over to the next day or throughout the week.

    Exercise Points
    1 points per 10 minutes of exercise. This must be an actual form of purposeful exercise - walking, running, biking, swimming, weight training, cardio machines, etc. This does not include any chores or activities, only straight exercise. Our goal is to reward your for purposefully fitting exercise into your shedule. General activity, such as cleaning the house, gardening or swimming with your children, is 1 point per 20 minutes of activity. Please limit activity to cleaning, activity and chores that require a little muscle work and/or endurance. For example, I would not include washing dishes. Use your best judgement. There is a limit of 12 points per day for exercise activity.

    Water Points
    1 point per cup (8 oz/236 ml) of water. 10 points max...1/2 can be calorie free, caffeine free drinks ie. tea not sweetened, diet sierra mist etc.

    Support Points
    1 point for each day you check in with your team. This does not mean typing "checking in." This means that you say something about your day, or something to encourage or support your fellow teammate(s). This should include at least 2 personal messages to a fellow teammate each day.

    Food Points
    5 points for every day you eat within your plan. Whether you're following an actual [COLOR=#006400 !important][COLOR=#006400 !important]diet [COLOR=#006400 !important]plan[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] (like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, SlimFast, etc.) or simply following basic healthy eating guidelines, you will earn for sticking to it. If you go slightly off plan you will get 3 points. If you totally blow your day 0 points.

    Breakfast point
    You can add a point each day for eating breakfast. Studies have shown that eating breakfast helps with [COLOR=#006400 !important][COLOR=#006400 !important]weight [COLOR=#006400 !important]loss[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] so this will be beneficial to everyone!

    Sleep Point
    Competitors will earn one point for each night that they sleep 7 hours or more. If you are feeding babies during the night, please count the amount of total sleep you get in any one night.


    Mini-challenges
    Mini-challenges are again part of this challenge. Most mini-challenges will take place over the course of a week. A new thread will be posted for each individual mini-challenge with instructions. Most mini-challenges will be worth 10 points per individual. You will need to tally your own mini-challenge points each week. If every member of a team completes the mini challenge and posts on the relevant thread, the team will get a huge 10 EXTRA POINTS onto their team average at the end of the week!

    It's 8 weeks. It is really easy to keep up with the rules once you get them down. We check in daily for support so that helps with the keeping track part.

    Hey girls. I started WW three weeks ago... I'd love to join. BUT I'll be honest, since i'm starting stims this coming week i'll have enough to be obsessing over so i'm not sure if the timing is good. It sounds perfect for a 'shift in focus' during the 2ww however!
