BDW Biggest Loser 3 SIGN-UPS! **DEADLINE TODAY!!**

Recommended Posts

Good luck ladies...I too will be passing this time around. I'm eating good and all but I don't want to commit again bc I cant always remember to stay on top of taking pictures and emailing them, etc. esp in the morning when I have to run around to get my daughter ready. I wish you all the best. Its a great incentive and the money is not bad either wink.gif Have fun.

legit excuses for missing a weigh in would be:
--your wedding falls in the middle of the contest and you'll be gone for 2 weeks
--you are on a business trip with no access to a scale or camera, or your own computer
--you have a family emergency and are unable to weigh-in and send a pic

non-legit excuses would be:
--oops i forgot
--i didnt feel like it this week because i gained, but i'd rather resend the photo from last week saying i stayed the same (yes someone actually did this, i am not going to say who)
--sending the weight number in an email without a photo - we don't record the number until we see the pic
etc
Sound fair to me!

the way ann's spreadsheet is set up, it wont calc your % numbers if you miss multiple weeks, so we had to put in a bogus number (the same number as the last week you reported) until you gave the next real number, so i dont really think it's fair to let people stay in who skip multiple weeks (again, except if their wedding falls during the 8 weeks) because their calculations are NOT accurate, KWIM?
I had noticed this season a bunch of people just not send anything in, or even respond to my emails/PMs asking if they forgot, etc. I mean, Maura and I are doing this to help out - at least let us know you just don't want to participate anymore - we don't care, but at least we don't have to try to work the spreadsheet!

If someone skipped a week or two, I'd just plug in the number they eventualy DID send me for all weeks that were blank so that for that week it would just show a 0% change. The week to week change really doesn't matter in terms of the overall contest, but I do think it's fun to see the progress.

I will enforce/abide by the rules that you all set - just let me know!

But I will say, I think that participants should be able to send in their weights any time on Wed. just because everyone has such different schedules and we're all in different time zones. The way I was doing it, as long as you got your # in to me by the time I got up Thurs. morning I counted it! lol But again, it's up to you!

FYI - I just the Season II winner the pot ... $450 - that's huge!

I too agree with the posting your pic anytime on Wed. I don't have access to a computer at work and I'm running around like crazy as it is in the morning to have time to upload and send before leaving for work. I need to send my $15 though

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
