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!

I would like to join in the non-competing category, please!   I leave for my wedding on January 29th, but would love to participate for the first few weeks.  Thanks for hosting, Marla.  :)

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 :)

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
