    Ok, ladies ... sorry it took so long, but there were a lot of things to consider this season. It's unfortunate that a select few "bad eggs" had to ruin what was a fun thing for most people. But, we've decided to let this competition happen, assuming someone out there still wants to "host" it for everyone. I'm still out.

    You can use this thread, or start a new one - but I did want to post a few rules that need to be followed:

    *BDW Owner/Administration takes no responsibility for this contest
    *There can be no monetary prize arranged via this forum
    *Should any issues arise, BDW Administration will not get involved unless forum rules are broken
    *Participants/members will decide who will run the contest
    *All rules must be posted and agreed upon by all members/participants prior to the start of the competition; these rules will be set and posted by the member running the contest, not BDW Administration

    I'd suggest adding your own rules as well and getting them nailed down before starting the contest. If you want me to add them to this first post, I can do that - just send me a PM.

    Good luck, and I hope ya'll have fun!

    -----------------ADDED 9/12-------------------

    BDW Biggest Loser VII will start on Wednesday, September 23, 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 12/16/2009. Each subsequent Wednesday, you will send me your weight and photo before the end of the day. Weigh-ins can PM (preferable) or email. PM me for my email address if you would rather email me your pictures. 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, September 22, 2009. So please PM me (Ginalyn) with your intial weigh in. Then post up in this thread to let everyone know you're joining.

    1. You will take a before pic and send it to Ginalyn. Ginalyn will not share the before pic with anyone. Participants will decide if they want to share their before pics.
    2. Every Wednesday starting on the start date (September 23), PM Ginalyn your weight. Send a pic of the scale and send it to Ginalyn too. If the number on the scale isn't clear, please also type in the weight in your message.
    3. On the last day of the contest (December 16), take an after photo and send it to Ginalyn as long with your weigh in. If Ginalyn does not receive your weigh in on that day, you are not eligible to win. Ginalyn will not share the after pic with anyone. Participants will decide if they want to share their after pics.
    4. Ginalyn will calculate percentage of weight loss from week-to-week (for fun and motivation), as well as the overall loss.
    5. The one who lost the most weight in terms of % loss at the end of twelve weeks will be the Biggest Loser!
    6. If you do not send in your weight on time for 2 weeks in a row without letting Ginalyn know in advance that you're out that week, you will be disqualified.
    7. For any and all communication for this contest, please send me a PM or email if it's something that requires my attention.
    8. If you are banned from the forum for any reason, you will be disqualified from the competition.
    9. There will be no "drama". If there is such drama, Ginalyn has the right to disqualify participants or stop the contest all together.
    10. The BDW Biggest Loser will be rewarded with a BL Season 7 avatar.
    11. BL participants are highly encouraged to frequently post in the BL7 thread. Motivation and active participation are key to supporting each other!

      I'd love to participate, but I unfortunately don't have time to host it. Hopefully someone has time??

        Hey ladies I want to participate, but can't host this season. I know a few ladies were willing to host so that shouldn't be a problem. I am so excited that this has started back up. My wedding is in Nov and my first gown fitting is this Thurs 8.27....

          I am very interested in this, but like the others I cannot host! I think it will be really fun, so I hope we find someone that is willing to do it :)

                  I popped back in here to see who ended up "hosting" and I am surprised to see that this thread has died.

                    I'm not sure what happened last season with the "bashing", but I'm still definitely interested, in participating if a Season 7 ever gets off the ground. I really wish I had the time to step up and volunteer to host but I'd hate to commit to doing something and then realize I really don't have the time to do it - it wouldn't be fair to anyone.

                      I agree with Heather. I wasn't a basher or anything and I really want to be involved in this season, but my wedding is in Nov so I wouldn't be able to host unless i miss 2 weeks or something. Also I'm down to the last few months so I know I'll be too busy to host.

                      So anyway on a more positive note.... Someone Please Please Please host this season. Biggest Loser is always so much fun and I'm sure we'd all enjoy it this season.
