F2F-WLC CHALLENGES:
- - WEEKLY GROUP CHALLENGE (Challenges hosted by teams for the entire group)
- - MODERATOR'S CHALLENGE (Challenges hosted by the moderators of the group)
- - INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGES (Challenges within teams themselves)

This Month’s Weekly Team Challenges provided by: (Team captains, please be ready with each weeks challenge...)
Week 1 – Team SHRINKING ASSETS
Week 2 - Team WORKOUT WARRIORS
Week 3 - Team MISSION SLIMPOSSIBLES
Week 4 - Team TRIMSTONES

(Note:The team order for challenges follows the team order in the group standing sheet on the spreadsheets)

HOW OUR CHALLENGES WORK:
We have 3 total possible challenges and NONE are mandatory. Our challengers can do none or all it's up to them. So we have...

The F2F Weekly TEAM Challenge - posted each week on Sunday in the announcements by the team who is assigned that particular week (see above for your week). This is for the F2F Group as a whole.

F2F Moderators Challenge/Topic of the week - This challenge is provided each week in the announcements area. One of the moderators will either provide a challenge that will involve anything fitness, health, and nutrition.

Individual Team challenges - these are challenge done within your own team. You can chose daily, weekly, or monthly challenges (weekly seems to work best). You can make this whatever you wish as long as it's health and fitness related.

Note: If for some reason your team is unable to provide the weekly challenge please let me know ahead of time so another team can take your place or so I can provide the challenge.

Good Luck Teams: Please let us know if there is anything wrong or if you notice something that needs to be fixed or modified. Everything seems ready to go for FEBRUARY. Registrations are almost done and we have quite a few new challengers. Make sure you are going into your new team threads to welcome anyone who has started posting. Let’s make our newbies feel welcome and show them some F2F love!!
THANKS YOUR MODS

    Did my monthly body composition analysis today, not the results I wanted but its also not super accurate, so its ok, according to it, Im down a pound dom last month, but up 0.4% BF. The guy who runs it though has diffrent challenges each month and he gave me a diffrent one from everyone else because I do workout more than others and have specific goals other than lose weight, so this month Im working on reducing my sugar consumption. avoid anything with added sugar, avoid things with more than 8g or sugar per serving, unless they dont come with a lable (fruit, ect) and avoid white foods like bread, chips, muffins, tortillas, ect. the other is stick to real foods as much as possible, which is natural made foods vs, man made foods (which I do pretty well already), so we will see how this goes

    Hi everyone!!
    First month of 2019 is already over!! Let's welcome February, hope it's fabulous to all of us!! My numbers on scale was not that pleasant today but I guessed so as I finally continued my weight lifting session after 3 months gap. My legs have not recovered from the Wednesday's session and today's next session!! One great effect of heavy lifting is that you can fall asleep effortlessly.

    No, I love carbs too much to do anything close to keto, but im doing this because I LOVE my carbs, so trying to stick to whole wheats instead of over processes stuff. I still consume plenty of carbs, lol
