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)

Team Weekly challenges will be announced in later communications

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

HOW OUR CHALLENGES WORK:
We have 4 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 OCTOBER. 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

    Hi TrimStone Newbie Members!! I and @mulecanter are your team captains. We'll do our best to motivate, keep you interested, keep you laughing and most of all, keep you working toward your weight loss goals. I post a lot and am a bit of a "chatty cathy", so I'd appreciate you giving us a few words on the who, what and why about you...I have been on this journey my whole life and at 53, I'm finally concentrating on getting healthier. I am addicted to my Fitbit and LOVE to do challenges. I am "[email protected]" if you'd like to add me to your friends list on Fitbit. Please let me know if you do so, because I don't add just everyone.

    I had a health scare a few years ago and after that experience, I got serious about taking off this weight and becoming more active.

    If I can ever do anything to help you out on your journey, just say the word. I'm available by mail if you don't want to discuss your issue in the chatroom...just send me a message. I try to come up with the group challenges this month so if you have an idea for a challenge, let me know. I also monitor and record the stats for our step group. You can find our step chart at the bottom of the spreadsheet where all the weights are recorded...just scroll down. If you'd like to be one of our steppers, just send me a message and share your favorite place to walk and you're in! Make sure once you join to report your steps every few days. (Hint...I don't like white spaces on my spreadsheet!) LOL! :smiley:

    Welcome...we're a great little family who supports each other and keeps it moving!
    Take care and Happy October!

    @angmarie19 glad your daughter is gone from the hospital. Prayers that the doctors come up work a great plan!

    @bsgraham10 Are you sure it was an accident? It looks like it might have been pushed!

    Happy Sunday Fun-day everybody!! After all of the repairs were completed on my house, this is my first full day of relaxing and piddling around my house...no dust, it's all clean, it looks amazing and I have full access to all rooms, no zippered doorways, hassle or anything negative...I'm enjoying doing laundry, cooking, washing dishes and going at my own pace. Might not be anything fancy, but I love my little house!!

    Hope you guys have a wonderful day as well!! The grind starts back up tomorrow, so enjoy today!!! October here we come!!!

    Steps. I kept trying to post these yesterday and failing!
    • 9/26 - 0 No fitbit. Resistance is hard!
    • 9/27 - 2,505 I put on the fitbit around noon. Took a Short wander around an antique mall. Then I forgot to put it on again after showering. I didn't walk much more, but did [code]manage to get to the high school to see their three one acts (my son was in two!)
    • 9/28 - 5,065 Another brief outing to an air conditioned antique mall....involved quite a bit of sitting on the steps, but not too bad. I think I am super jet-lagged from surgery and slightly woozy as my internal clock is wonky and sleeping on my back is tough!

    @jessicakrall8 So glad your house is back together and looking great!

    My favorite place to walk is on the beach....but since that is far away, the walking trail along the stream near me....but since it is still really hot and I'm not back up to speed, an air conditioned antique mall will do quite nicely. Please keep me on the step chart for October!

    @Loriab901 Welcome to TrimStones!! I hope you love it here as I do! I'm Jessica, 53, one of your captains... @mulecanter will also be a supportive captain...he's lurking around here someplace... hope you'll take a few minutes to introduce yourself, mention a little bit about your journey and your goals of what you'd like to accomplish. We have a steppers team if you're a walk fanatic as I am...if you'd like to join that, please let me know as I monitor the stats for that group. You can find the step chart at the bottom of the same spreadsheet where you see the weight stats...just scroll on down to the bottom and you'll see it.

    Talk to you soon...again, welcome to the fam!

    @jessicakrall8 I tried sending a fitbit friend request, not sure if it worked. Technology is hard some days!

    9/26 = 11,014
    9/27 = 6,109
    9/28 = 11,473
    Yes I'd like to stay in for October.

    Hey there...send me a message on here with your email and I'll try to add you on Fitbit...it can be tricky, you're right. I don't currently have any requests, but I didn't know to watch for you, so I may have deleted it by accident.

    I have you added to the step chart for October and I updated the last of your steps from Sept. Thanks!
