    Since there are quite a few people interested in the 4th season of BDW Biggest Loser, I thought I'd start a thread for you all. Normally, I don't set the rules or come up with the entry fee, I let you all decide on that before things get started, so this is the thread to discuss all of the rules and the entry fee.

    The season 3 rules are below, and the entry fee was $15 ... does anything need to change? I just copy/pasted these from the last season's thread. It's up to you all to determine the rules. Let me know (via PM in case I miss it in this thread) if the rules need to change. It's probably best to update the rules here in this post so they're clear to everyone involved. And that way, if there's a season 5, we can just copy them to that thread.

    Last season, Kelly won $510 (CONGRATULATIONS, Kelly!) - now that's motivation!

    Anyone wanting to participate in BL3 can PM me (AnnR) and I will tell you where to send your entry fee. I need to reiterate NO CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. Or if necessary, cash or personal check will be accepted.

    BDW Biggest Loser IV will start on Wednesday, September 24th - at which point you will send me your starting weight along with a photo of proof. Each subsequent Wednesday, you will send Ann your weight and photo before the end of the day. Not at 3 pm on Thursday for all you slackers

    Sign-ups will go through end of the day Tuesday, September 23rd. So please PM me that you are going to participate, and then post up here to let everyone know you're joining.

    - Entry fee $15
    - Sign up and pay by Tuesday, September 23rd
    - Contest starts on Wednesday, September 24th
    - Contest last 8 weeks, ending on Wednesday, November 19th
    - The winner gets the pot

    What you need to do ...
    1) send me (AnnR) a PM to let me know you're interested, and she will then give you her email address, which you will then use to send your entry fee $$ thru paypal (NO Credit Cards please!) - also, PLEASE include your BDW username with your payment!
    2) You will take a before pic (keep it in your files)
    4) Every Wednesday starting on the start date (see above), PM AnnR your weight. To keep it fair take a pic of the scale and send it to Ann as well. If the number on the scale isn't clear, please also type in the weight
    5) On the last day of the contest (see above), take a photo and post before and after on this thread. If Ann does not receive your weigh in on that day, you are not eligible to win.
    6) Ann will calculate percentage of weight loss from week-to-week (for fun and motivation), as well as the overall loss
    7) The one who lost the most weight in terms of % loss at the end of eight weeks wins the pot!

    If you do not send in your weight on time for 2 weeks in a row w/o letting Ann know you're out that week, you will be disqualified.

        I want to sign up for this too...but in the middle falls Thanksgiving, and our move into our new place...so I have a feeling that eating well is going to be tough. Maybe I should wait for Season 5

                I'm in. The $15 fee is good and so are the dates. I'm so glad i will be home for the final weigh in, i'll be away for my wedding on Nov 5th. I know i probably wont win since i plan on pigging out the day after the wedding lol but bl has been keeping me in check and it's well worth the $15.

                  You can send me a PM and the $$ anytime you're ready. For those of you that have done this before, or know my email/PayPal address - go ahead and just send me the $$ when you're ready (just please include your BDW screen name!)

                    I think I'm going to do it this time around. were the before & after pics posted for BLS3? I started digging through the 50+ pages.

                    October has always been the month where i gain the most weight, so this will be good encouragement. hopefully this october will not be as stressful as the last 3.

                    I don't think I could come close to losing 11% of my weight in 8 weeks. that would put me back at my college weight :o But, it's worth $15 to play.

                      I'm definitely in for another round.
