BDW Biggest Loser: Season 6 ~ Official Thread ~ FINAL RESULTS POSTED!! (#869)

Recommended Posts

Since there are quite a few people interested in the 6th 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 5 - 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.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT ANY RULES AND/OR DATES CHANGED FOR THIS SEASON OR IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.



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 VI will start on Wednesday, April 15th, 2009, this will be the initial weigh in - 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 7/8/2009. 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, April 14th, 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, April 14th, 2009
- Contest starts on Wednesday, April 15th, 2009
- Contest last 12 weeks, ending on Wednesday, July 8th, 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.
9. For any and all communication for this contest, please send me a PM or email if it's something that requires my attention. I do my best to keep up on this thread, but I do miss things so your best bet is to send me a PM or email.
10. If you are banned from the forum for any reason, you could also be disqualified from the competition and your money will not be refunded. (aded 6/21/2009)

This sounds so fun and this would give me some much needed motivation...I'm just thinking if we're doing this strictly scale-wise, I won't be much of a competitor as I lift a lot of weights (and I'm told muscle weighs more than fat). Are we allowed to enter if we use personal training? What does the entry fee cover? Sorry for all the dumb questions, just wondering how it all works.

 

Thanks!

I want to do this too! I always end up dropping out - but it is pre-summer so I am def. more motivated! And with all the people who are probably going to sign up the pot will be huge! Thinking about it..............

You can have a personal trainer, lots of the girls who have done this have had one. The $15 is kind of a small incentive to win, gives a little motivation when the winner could win $300+ I think one season was around $600!!!

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
