BDW Biggest Loser Season 11

Recommended Posts

A few of us were talking and interested in doing a Season 11...so thought I would start a new thread to get the word out.

I am very happy to host Season 11 and am just waiting on permission from Tammy Host and AnnR.

 

We will begin with our 1st weigh in (once we get permission) on December 31st so that we can start the New Year off right (and healthy).

 

Let me know if you want to participate :)

 

Once I hear back..I will post the official welcome and rules.

Hey ladies, This is a REPOST of the season 10 version, but with edits I made to fit this new season. I am happy to accept the new role as host of season 11's BDW Biggest Loser!! Best of luck, contestants!

 

A special Thank You to AnnR for moderating this competition for us!

 

BDW Biggest Loser 11 – Start date: December 31st, 2010 – initial weigh in – to start, you will need to send Marla (msmarmar123) your starting weight along with a photo for proof (photo of yourself plus the number on the scale). You can send these to: blseason11@gmail.com.

This season will last 12 weeks. Each subsequent week, you will send Marla (msmarmar123) your weight and a photo of the scale (you donâ€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 wonâ€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 Marla (msmarmar123). 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 December 31st , send your weight by e-mail to Marla (msmarmar123) at blseason11@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 Marla (msmarmar123) along with your weigh-in. If Marla (msmarmar123) does not receive your weigh-in on that day, you are not eligible to win. Marla (msmarmar123) will not share the after pic with anyone. Participants will decide if they want to share their after pics.
  4. Marla (msmarmar123) 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. Marla (msmarmar123) will post a weekly 'tip of the week' with a fun fact or advice on weight loss dieting/exercising every Sunday (or Monday). Any and all members or contestants are free to post their own recipes/advice/tips on weight loss for other viewers to see.
  6. The one who lost the most weight in terms of % loss at the end of twelve weeks will be the Biggest Loser!
  7. If you do not send in your weight on time for 2 weeks in a row without letting Marla (msmarmar123) know in advance that you're out that week, you will be disqualified.
  8. 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).
  9. For any and all communication for this contest, please send me (Marla) an email at blseason11@gmail.comif it's something that requires my attention.
  10. If you are banned from the forum for any reason, you will be disqualified from the competition.
  11. There will be no "drama". If there is any such drama, Marla (msmarmar123) and Ann [AnnR] has the right to disqualify participants or stop the contest all together.
  12. The BDW Biggest Loser will be rewarded a 'BDW Superstar' banner!
  13. BL participants are highly encouraged to frequently post in the BL11 thread – motivation and active participation are key to supporting each other!

Hi Marla,

 

Like Oryx, I would like to participate in the non-competing category. I'll be married by the end of the competition. Is there anything in particular that we'll need to do?

All you need to do is send me your initial weigh in on December 31st (or January 1st by 12 noon) with a pic of the #s on the scale (including your feet) and a pic of you.  If you are taking the pic yourself...easiest thing to do is take it in front of the mirror (that's what I did last season) to blseason11@gmail.com.

 

If you have any recipes...or any advice...or challenges...or questions...post those in the forum.  Everyone is basically just around to be motivating and supportive :)

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
