        I think I may join this season as well! My body has been so "off" since I got sick - I've been completely sedentary and can't wait to start exercising! Since I'll have my surgery on Dec. 11th things should really start to be balancing back out by the time Season V starts! Plus as some of the other girls said, this will be great motivation for my wedding in May!!!

        I've never done this before so hopefully I won't mess up and be "DQ'ed"!

        We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

          i'm definitely in again ... ann, i'll PM you and paypal my entry fee now so i don't forget.

          ann, i think 2 missed weigh-ins in a ROW should be the disqualifier. i've never missed one myself (other than while on vacation, but i notified you), but i could imagine it's very easy for it to slip your mind if your life is any busier than mine (i.e. if you have kids, two jobs, etc.). 2 in a row is fair.

          morgan, i personally like to weigh-in *every* week. having to remain accountable to someone is a huge motivator for me. it's like "i have to be good ... or ann and the girls will KNOW." haha! but if other girls find the opposite i'm game for anything.

            I am in!!! I will PM you and sent payment now Ann

            I agree w/ missing 2 weigh-ins in a row.

            BUT I also agree w/ not weighing in week 2 & 3 cause you usually don't lose weight those weeks. So here's what I think:

            If you want to send in your weight on week 2 & 3 that is fine, if you choose not to, then you should either not be able to miss a weigh-in, or you can only miss 1 other weigh in. Otherwise if you were allowed to miss 2 in a row and weeks 2-3 that's not weighing in 1/3 of the time.

            What do you girls think?

              I agree that two weeks in a ROW should be a DQ. Sometimes I take business trips and can't weigh in on every Wednesday on my home scale, ya know?

              Also.....do you girls want me to make little badges again? Any theme ideas? I loved the fat animals!!

                  Hey ladies, I'm going to sit out this time. I will be in Mexico from Jan 5th to the 17th and I'm only 2 pounds from my goal weight right now, which better be gone by the time this starts! lol Good luck and I'll probably check in just to see who's kicking butt!

                    Ya I would love new badges. I was thinking snowmen and santa, but that's now, not going to work for January-April. Maybe like suns, clouds, and raindrops w/ faces all fat and plump; or flowers, large plump flowers. I don't know, I was just thinking seasonal.

                      we already have people signing up and paying - i love it! i am hoping the longer sign-up period will allow for lots of people to sign up this time.

                      i would think so, since it's not giving you an advantage over anyone. does anyone disagree?

                      Do we want to skip those?
                      so I had to go back and look just to see what weeks 2-3 have looked like for the BDW BL seasons (yes, i still have all of the spreadsheets!). and it looks like week 2 has always been pretty strong, but there's definitely a dip in week 3.

                      i'm game for whatever you guys decide in terms of those 2 weeks. i missed where you talked about that, so i was wondering where the skipping of weeks came in! lol

                      i WILL know so you all better be good! i can send you snarky emails if you gain weight if that motivates you. lol
