update: 10/23 membership closed!(unless you're one of my personal frnds/fam THAT I'm stilllll waiting to hear from!) -- please check back after the new year maybe we'll do it again!

Any one want to, or have you before on this site (I'm new here), want to try and start something like the biggest loser show here on fatsecret? though we wouldn't want to kick anyone off

maybe we could start a
"red team" user
and a "blue team" user (with everyone playing knowing the password/user name)
then?combine all our current wts and what we lose over a set amount of time?
weight in once a week like they do on the show....?

Respond to this post if your interested in brainstorming or doing this!!!

I like this will certainly give me more incentive to try even harder! I don't see very many responses though...if i'm looking at it right. I LIKE the idea though.'s a road-block; what if people cheat? accountability would count here.

well, COUNT me in!
see ya!

I like the idea too!

I'll check back and see if there's a bigger response.

Good luck with your weight loss in the meantime!!!!

Sounds like fun but you would probably have to have a team leader who would take care of tracking the weight. Everyone would email the leader their weight loss/gain for the week and then they would enter the new weight. I don't think it would work if each person tried to log in and enter their own. Keep us all posted.

Sounds like fun to me too! I love the idea of being accountable to my team. Seeing as we are all here for the same purpose - to lose weight and gain a healthier lifestyle I would hope that there wouldn't be a problem with honesty. Anyway, Count me in!

Great! Sounds like we have enough even for a small compitition. But lets let the post run a bit see if we get anyone else.

Yes, a team leader is great idea. one for each team! I think the team leaders pick their team members on the show? not sure anyone know how they make the teams?

Well cheating would be a bummer, we'll just have to trust! We'll do it as a percentage of the teams wt lost like on the show. Is sunday a good weigh in day? Should we start in a week? or let the post run longer. If we do a six week program (I think thats how long the shows is) it would take us through turkey day eating, so that could add some drama, after we all come back from that BIG MEAL!!! Smile but would end before busy xmas.
So, if Sundays are good, lets start either
October 28th or
November 4th
let me know what you guys think!

Any other ideas for a prize or motivation or rules needed? Anyone else interested in being a team leader? I'll be one obviously.

Great Reina and 4eduacation Smile

Let's start Sunday October 28th everyone.

We need at least one more team leader...anyone interested... somebody? anybody? Smile

We'll start "picking teams" as soon as we have another leader! or I guess I could create a profile for each team, while we wait for a leader!

we're still brain storming on how all the details will work (all ideas welcome!), but def the following:

1) Next Sunday, October 28th, all start wts would need to be emailed to your team leader.
2) every Sunday there after for six weeks your wts would have to be emailed in...
3) we'll base winning on percent of total teams wt. loss.

Anyone have a color team preference let me know! else I"ll just send you a buddy request from one of the two teams.... Smile

I want in. I have been looking for someone to do this with, as they are having one at work and wouldnt let me join. But here at work there is a cash prize. I even told that I would donate the money to the ACS. But nooooooooooo, they think that because Ive already lost 50+ pounds that I have a head start. Humm, I am surrounded by idiots.

Im not fat, just fluffy.

That's a smart fix. The salt will cancel out the sugar for sure. At any rate, it will leach out enough water that you'll think you've lost a pound.

When I signed up with this site I was hoping to gain some support and encouragement, I don't see a lot of community support in posts. Not sure if I found the right group for me.

This is a great time to make your own cranwater while they are in season. I get a bag of cranberries for 99 cents here so you are saving bundles; it is however, a little time consuming.
