BDW Biggest Loser ~ Season 7

Recommended Posts

yeah ginalyn the weekly weigh ins were only your feet on the scale, but before and after pics were full body.

 

have we decided the before & afters were mandatory to be sent to at least you? i guess i can live with that (you're the one who will suffer, lol) but i'd rather not post them online unless i'm pretty well clothing covered, kwim?

Someone (I forgot who) had suggested that the pictures be sent to me since there was drama last season. I still don't really know what happened last season, but I don't need to and don't want to know. If you don't want to post them online then you can email them directly to me. Just PM me and I can send you my email address. I won't save them down, I will merely move them all to a folder in my inbox. I don't mind if you are clothing-covered in the pictures as long as you aren't wearing super baggy clothing and I can tell that you are the same person in the before and after (and hopefully you all will have acheived super fantastic results!). Is everyone ok with that?

I am open to suggestions, so if anyone else has any thoughts idea.gif
feel free to speak up!

I've posted photos on the forum before showing my weight loss, but they had my head cut off. lol And I deleted them shortly after. Just wondering what you guys are thinking for your photos?

If you have some sort of tatoo or other body marking that would tell me that the pic is of you, then I don't see a problem with you cutting your head off...

For those of you who participated in prior seasons, did you include your faces? Like I posted in the rules, I won't be sharing pictures with anyone.

For the Before and After pics though, you send a pic of your full body, correct?

Thank you for clarification Jacilynda!! And thank you to everyone for bearing with me as the new host. I am still learning!
Just so you know how it was done in the past, let me clarify. There were 2 sets of pictures ... 1) the before and after pictures (whole body, faces not necessary) and 2) the weekly weigh-ins.

1) the before and after pictures were never mandatory, and i rarely saw any of them. many girls didn't do it at all, and some just kept them in their own personal files for reference and motivation. a brave few posted them for all to see ... they really were great to see the progress, and i am sure they really motivated the other girls, as well as the individual

2) the weekly weigh ins were the ones that were sent to me every Wednesday. this was usually just a picture of the scale and your feet. of course there's the risk that people will cheat, but you can only be so cautious. these were often done via cell phones since that was usually easiest!

so, that's how it was done in the past - but feel free to do it however you want this season!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
