Recommended Posts

BDW Biggest Loser IX РStart date: April 16, 2010 Рinitial weigh in Рto start, you will need to send Ren̩e [Oryx] your starting weight along with a photo for proof (photo of yourself plus the number on the scale). You can send these to: BLseason9@gmail.com.

 

This season will last 12 weeks. Each subsequent week, you will send Renée [Oryx] your weight and a photo of the scale (you don’t need to send a photo of yourself every week, just the first and last weeks). Weigh-in days will be on FRIDAYS. However, in the hopes that you won’t miss any weeks, you will have until each Saturday at 12:00PM EST to send me your weigh-in and photo for that week.

 

So, to recap the rules:

  1. You will take a before pic of yourself and send it to Renée [Oryx]. She will not share the before pic with anyone. Participants will decide if they want to share their before pics.
  2. Every FRIDAY starting on April 16, send your weight by e-mail to Renée [Oryx] at BLseason9@gmail.com. Also send a pic of the scale for proof, and 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, take an after photo and send it to Renée [Oryx] along with your weigh-in. If Renée [Oryx] does not receive your weigh-in on that day, you are not eligible to win. Renée [Oryx] will not share the after pic with anyone. Participants will decide if they want to share their after pics.
  4. Renée [Oryx] will calculate percentage of weight loss from week-to-week (for fun and motivation), as well as the overall loss for the entire group!
  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 Renée [Oryx] know in advance that you're out that week, you will be disqualified.
  7. If you become disqualified, or would just like to join in for fun, you can continue to send in your weigh-ins (but you will not be eligible to win).
  8. For any and all communication for this contest, please send me (Renée) an email at BLseason9@gmail.com if it's something that requires my attention.
  9. If you are banned from the forum for any reason, you will be disqualified from the competition.
  10. There will be no "drama". If there is any such drama, Renée [Oryx] has the right to disqualify participants or stop the contest all together.
  11. The BDW Biggest Loser will be rewarded with a BL Season 9 avatar.
  12. BL participants are highly encouraged to frequently post in the BL9 thread – motivation and active participation are key to supporting each other!

Hi Ladies!

 

I am determined to stick with this, so I'm writing to see who would be interested in participating in a 9th season of BDW Biggest Loser! I am willing to host this time around, since I just participated in Season 8 and really enjoyed it. Natasha (nsbride2010) did an awesome job last season, but since she is getting married soon (yay Natasha!), I figure it's time for someone else to take over. I hope I am not stepping on anyone's toes though, so if someone else really wants to host, please let me know.

 

I am hoping to start soon.... maybe early May? Let me know if you are interested and when you think would be a good time to start. Also, please let me know what day of the week you want to weigh in -- my vote would be for Fridays, because that gives us a whole week to recover from the weekends! And it would also give me the weekend to get the results up. But I'm flexible, so let's go with what works for the majority.

 

So please post if you're interested, when you'd like to start, and what day is best to weigh in!

 

If you want to see the rules and basically how Season 8 went, check out this thread: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...son-8-a-53343/

I'll also copy the same rules and everything once we get a few people interested and if you all agree to let me host.

Would April 16th be too early to start? I want to give everyone a chance to join, if they want to.

 

And how would people feel about having Friday as the weigh-in day, but giving people until 12:00 PM EST on Saturday to get their picture to me? That way maybe more people would not miss the weigh-in. What do you think?

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣
