    If you still have room for one more, let me know. I didn't get around to sending stuff in at the original date.

    Re: new weightloss thread

    Hey, I sent my info.
    There are two ways to respond to a need: Self-Reliance or Compassion. If I scrape my knee, I can get up, clean it and bandage it myself. Or I can ask my friend to help me up and he can get the medicine for me. But one difference between the options is choice: I choose by my own will to get up and help myself, but my friend has to be willing to help me in order for the Compassion side of things to work. And that's the thing right there: You can't force compassion. People are either willing to help you when you need help or they aren't, but you can't make them help you.

    Re: new weightloss thread

    Were live.

    The message that went out to all of the team leads

    You are the team captain. Discuss with your teammates a team name and send it to me.

    Also you are required to provide a frontal scan, scale scan and total weight for you and your 3 other teammates on the date of every weigh in. Weigh in dates can be found after post 1. Every day you are late, it will cost you 2 pounds.

    Also only 3 out of your 4 teammates will be eligible to count in every weigh in. That said all 4 teammates are required to have information. If someone misses a weigh in they will be ineligible for the next weigh in. If they miss that weigh in, they will continue to be ineligible. Make sure you submits everyones weight every weigh in.

    The reason for the 3/4 rule is because there are going to be people who refuse to participate. I do not want teams to be driven out immediate if they have a bad teammate. If they have 2 unfortunately, they will be put at a major disadvantage. Unfortunately there is only so much that I can do.

    If you have any additional questions, please let me know.

    Re: new weightloss thread

    what do you mean about every day we are late? Do you mean when there is a set date to turn in the info, if its not submitted on or before that day, we get 2lbs added to our combined weight?

    Also, each person needs to take a picture of themselves, the scale and provide weight each week too? Just trying to make sure I know whats going on. As far as the 3/4 rule, I understand that only 3 of the 4 will be eligible, but who chooses which 3? Do we get to choose which 3 are eligible to be counted?

    The first weigh in is June 30th. If you send me your info on july 2nd, you will have 4 pounds added onto the team for that weigh in. I am not going to publish anything till I have all of the information.

    Each team leader is responsible for providing me a frontal picture, a scale picture and the current weight of everyone on their team. Its beyond difficult to organize all of that for 40 people. It will make it easier on me to do it through 8 people. It took almost 200 emails and 50 PMs to get this far, unfortunately I do not have the time to do that every 15 days. If I can do 8 sets of 4, you should be able to do 1 set of 4. If you are unwilling to do the work, feel free to appoint a new team lead.

    it is also worth your while to submit on the weigh in date even if you only have information for 3 people. If the 4th person gets their weight in with in 5 days of the weigh in, they will not be held ineligible for the next weigh in.

    Please see the last post for your 3/4 rule.

    Re: new weightloss thread

    What is the baseline weight – the one from the original email and pic we all sent you or the one from the first official date (June 30)? Hopefully from the original pic and weight….or I would have been enjoying my dinners more this week!
    The weight listed on the OP is your basis. If you eat like crazy till the 15th (which completely misses the point of this contest), you will be put at a great disadvantage.

    That's a pretty good idea. Maybe the bottom 4 teams in percentage have to lose 1 person, then cut it down after the half way point.

    I don't like that.. Nor do I like that on the real show!
    It should be the weight loss for the whole contest, You have good weeks and you have bad weeks,
    Now if you've gained weight in the month, that may be a different story..


    btw, I watched the last few years except the last one and Would like to see the show where all the contestants are there the whole 6 months with no eliminations..
    Just give more prizes/incentives to lose weight rather than "playing" the game...
