BDW Biggest Loser: Season V ~ Official Thread ~ FINAL Results Posted

Recommended Posts

Since there are quite a few people interested in the 5th 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.

Here are the rules from Season 4 - if you'd like something to change, that's fine, but let's get the rules nailed down before the start of the season so it's clear to all who enter! 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.



Anyone wanting to participate in BL5 can PM me (AnnR) and/or PayPal me the entry fee to <email address removed>. I need to reiterate NO CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. If necessary, cash or personal check will be accepted via mail.

BDW Biggest Loser V will start on Wednesday, January 7th, 2009- at which point you will send me your starting weight along with a photo of proof. This season will last 12 weeks, with the final weigh-in on 4/1/2009 (April Fool's Day!). Each subsequent Wednesday, you will send me your weight and photo before the end of the day. Weigh-ins can be sent via email, PM, text message - whatever! As long as you send it some time on Wednesday and include your screen name, weight, and a photo, it counts.

Sign-ups will go through end of the day Tuesday, January 6th, 2009. So please PM me (AnnR) that you are going to participate and/or send me the sign up fee, and then post up here to let everyone know you're joining.

- Entry fee $15
- Sign up and pay by Tuesday, January 6th, 2009
- Contest starts on Wednesday, January 7th, 2009
- Contest last 12 weeks, ending on Wednesday, April 1st, 2009
- The winner gets the pot

What you need to do ...
1. send me (AnnR) a PM to let me know you're interested, and/or just PayPal the entry fee to <email address removed> (NO Credit Cards please!).
2. PLEASE include your BDW username with your payment! If you want a weekly email reminder for the weigh-ins, please also let me know the email address you'd like me to use.
3. 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 in your message.
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 twelve weeks wins the pot!
8. If you do not send in your weight on time for 2 weeks in a row w/o letting Ann know in advance that you're out that week, you will be disqualified.

Hi Ann. Thanks for doing this.......again! I am in......again! Hopefully this will be the last time. I will pm you in the next week or two and paypal your the $15. You should edit number 7 to read twelve weeks. The rules again are very fair. Thanks! Kathie

The only thing I have a question on is the DQ terms. Do you all want to keep it where if someone misses 2 weeks in a row they are DQ'd or just 2 weeks throughout the competition (or 3, whatever)? I'm game for what you all want!

D'oh! Thanks for catching that, Kathie - I knew I'd miss that somewhere.

This would be perfect timing for my March 27th wedding! If I send in my "final weight" one week early, would that be ok? I will still be in Mexico on April 1st. :)

we talked about skipping the week 2 & 3 weigh-ins. It's recommended in the Best Life Diet to not weight during this time, because it's usually demotivating.

 

Do we want to skip those?
