    congrats to morgan! i can't believe there's only one week left!

    this is the first time i've been able to open this thread all week ... kept getting the ol' blank white page. hopefully all will be resolved by tomorrow when the forum maintenance is over. i've been having serious BDW withdrawal! i actually snuck into the thread by just clicking "reply" on my subscribed thread in user CP. when i clicked on the thread name, or any of the page numbers, i always got the blank page. i imagine others are having these problems too, so don't be too concerned about the lack of loser posts!

    best of luck to us all, and i'll see some of you in BL5! LOL!

      about a year ago there were a few weeks when we were having lots of forum issues. I found that if I searched a topic in google like "OOT bag contents" a BDW thread would pop up & I could read it in a weird way. I clicked "cache" and google shows you a snapshot of the page taken the week before. It helped with the withdraws.



      I just finished taebo with a friend. I felt really encouraged today. I've been feeling like the weight loss isn't real because I'm not seeing it. today i realized my favorite bra fit again. for the last 6 months it has been too small. I never thought that my boobs getting smaller would make me happy, but it sure did. I think its because it was proof of the weight loss i believed. when my jeans are looser, i figure they are just stretched out. but, even out of the dryer they fit nicely now.

        Honestly, I was going to say I wasnt' going to do the next Biggest Loser, just because I was getting a little tired of people emailing me saying they can't get me the picture for this or that reason, or they forgot, or they're too busy - whatever. I felt like people just weren't really into this anymore. BUT - I love Morgan's attitude! It's that positive, and motivating attitude that makes me really like helping out by hosting!

        So, if people are in for BL5 I can start a sign up thread. Or do you all think that it makes sense to wait until AFTER the holidays? Usually the next one starts up a week or so after one ends, but not sure it makes sense in this case - but it's all up to you ladies!

          aww thanks! I really appreciate you doing this. I've never been so motivated.

          I went to a gym that had a holiday contest where people weighed in before thanksgiving & after new years. the goal wasn't to lose, but to maintain. so if we don't do biggest loser, maybe we can do a holiday before & after weigh in. or I can put santa hats on the fluffy animals & a note that says, "don't be naughty during the holidays."

                thanks! I don't like how the green ended up looking. I'm going to redo them later.

                  ann, i'm sure everyone who's done BL with you is with me in thanking you for all your hard work on behalf of this contest. no one would fault you for wanting a break from it! maybe someone else would be willing to take it over? i would offer to do it myself, if i didn't so badly need to be IN the contest, LOL!

                  maybe after the holidays is a better idea ... i think most everyone will want to step it up for the new year, and shed their holiday pounds ... the participation will be up, and so will the $$$ and motivation! maybe less people would slack.

                    I really wish there was more than 1 week left. I have not done as well as I hoped I would. I got so sick and then my bootcamp got canceled for 3 weeks and it just started up again last week and Thursday's class got canceled, so I have not been working out as much as I had planned. Its hard to do it on my own because of Ella, I just have sooo much to do that if I don't leave the house for bootcamp I stay here to get other things done. Oh well, I will sign up for the next one as well and hopefully I can do better at that one.

                      ditto! i think 8 weeks is kinda short for real weight-loss. and for someone my size to win, i'd have to lose way more than the recommended "healthy" weight loss of 2 lbs per week to get a high enough percentage lost.

                      i'm committed to doing the contest as many times as it's offered up until (and probably beyond) my wedding date though. even if i don't ever win, it feels good to know that i'm helping provide motivation for someone else and it's helpful to me to know i have to stay accountable to ann and all you ladies.

                      the bottom line is, win or lose, i'm almost twenty pounds lighter than i was this summer, before BL3, and that makes me VERY happy! i've had some people notice the weight loss (even virtual strangers) and i have a few pairs of old jeans that i've been able to fit back into. in fact, last week i was running low on clean clothes and wore a pair of jeans that were definitely snug several months ago. i can pull them up and down now without unbuttoning or unzipping! needless to say, i can't wear those anymore!
